can we all just agree that grilled cheese sandwiches are wonderful?

i just had one tonight, and it was great! like they always are! seriously, if i could only eat one food for the rest of my life, it would definitely be grilled cheese sandwiches. hands down.

can we all just agree that it's nice to have supportive friends [volume 2]?

me: blah blah blah totally premature concerns about matters of nomenclature
friend: "oh sarah, don't even worry about that. you can call me your giraffe, if you want."

and it's even a different friend than before! sheesh, they're great!

can we all just agree that this is an excellent explanation? / ¿podemos estar de acuerdo que esta es una explicación excelente?

"we have to tell these stories in spanish, because that's how they happened."

thanks, daniel (guest blogger and explainer extraordinaire)! come back to visit sometime, okay?

"tenemos que contar estos cuentos en español, porque se pasaron así."

¡gracias, daniel (blogger de huésped y explicador extraordinaire)! regresé para visitarnos alguna vez, ¿ok?

can we all just agree that sunburn + mosquito bites = an unfortunate combination indeed?

luckily, i have a pretty good sunscreen application technician, so the burns are pretty small, but still. bumm-ER!

can we all just agree that the norman/born different campaign is an interesting idea?

perhaps a bit of an oversimplification, but a good way to get people thinking about a really important issue. (and maybe people who need the campaign also need oversimplification?) check it out.

can we all just agree that telephone calls are really nice,

but that it's even nicer when they come one at a time? seriously, i have had more telephone calls during other calls lately than ever before. it would be much less of a problem if:

1) i didn't feel so rude answering other calls while i'm on the phone with someone already,

and

2) i knew how to use the call waiting feature on my phone. i still can't really figure out how to switch between calls, so i just end up hanging up on people most of the time. sheesh.

can we all just agree that old people are really cute, but old couples are even cuter?

today on the bus there was a sweet old couple. he was wearing a miller high life trucker hat with woven straw sides and nice shoes and she had an all-white suit on and they were totally cute. and it made me happy.

can we all just agree that it's really cool when your friends are getting married and you don't have serious misgivings about it?

aw jq and ps*, this is such a good idea!
(and also as and pf, and mg and sr...so exciting!)

*ha ha ha no silly, not that ps! the other one!

can we all just agree that a quick glance at google news is a good way to make sure i meet or exceed my daily requirement of OUTRAGE?

yes yes blah blah rush limbaugh isn't going to be prosecuted for the viagra incident, and ken lay managed to die without having to deal with many of the consequences of his actions...but

THE CIA DECIDED TO SHUT DOWN THE UNIT THAT SPECIFICALLY TARGETTED OSAMA BIN LADEN. yeah, that's right, the guy we were going to find dead or alive. THE DUDE IN CHARGE OF AL-QUEDA.

(sometimes, just sometimes, it seems like those guys aren't actually primarily concerned with protecting america...)
