Wow, what a busy week it's been! We're going to France the last week of the month, so we have to get ready and I have to do more than usual at work. Mona and JC are also the ones whose apartment we've been redoing, and they want it all set for their return. At least the structure was sound, so that didn't need improving.
I got a free subscription to House Beautiful magazine! That's what you get for cashing in those Coke rewards points. It's gotten around that I do all those stupid promotions, so people give me their caps with codes, too. It does add up if you're organized and don't forget about it. L'Ailee and I will read it together and get into lively discussions, and I think my friends will be keeping their caps to themselves now.
Some people's minds are just two sizes too small, you know? Someone asked me why we'd have a grill, if I'm a vegetarian and neither of us are men. Well, I wasn't aware that you needed one of them hangy-down things, to quote Earl Pitts, American, to use a barbecue. And who still thinks meat's the only thing you can put on a grill? Besides, L'Ailee's an omnivore. It's kind of frustrating.
I guess it's just as well that I don't have deep stuff on my mind. I've been too busy to really think, and that's okay. But I'll share some links anyhow.
Ideal Bite, "a sassier shade of green", is a wonderful, practical site for non-hippies who want to be kinder to the earth.
Holy moly, the Holy Land Experience, thanks to the Liberty (for Christian heterosexual conservatives) Counsel and Florida governor Jeb Bush, has won the right to avoid property taxes. Look for Biblical themes at Disney World now. In 2003, when I still lived in Orlando, I wrote up all kinds of suggestions for them.
Jeff Foxworthy, Bill Engvall, and Drew Carey discuss the importance of having a big deck. Maybe that's why my friend was confused.
And finally, two of my very favorite things have been combined--pandas and National Geographic!
