can we all just agree that, although the use of environmentally sustainable cleaning products is an important goal, there's nothing quite like
(i'm ready to stop being unemployed now.)

can we all just agree that being awakened by an earthquake is not a very cool way in which to be awakened?

thank you audra.
it was really hot, so things were hanging kind of low, if you get my drift, and they were gigantic! like two tangerines!
and here's the part that still makes me laugh a little bit when i think of it: they're woolly! i mean, i guess it makes sense, because they're part of a sheep and all...but it's still kind of funny. i was telling audra about it, and she was wondering if sheep nut wool finds its way into sweaters. it's an interesting question.
so imagine, if you can, a sheep with a woolly tangerine bag, just hanging out. it's very much unlike the sheep i'm familiar with (and i grew up in a fairly sheepy place.)
i just thought you should know.

"your cash, pale-souled"
"your future, muffin pan"
i almost wanna read that one, the muffin pan one. it's almost like that particular message is being sent by someone near and dear, who playfully calls me "muffin pan" and who is writing to suggest some fantastic job leads, or maybe even some sort of no-strings-attached sponsorship arrangement, in which they pay my bills so that i can blog and garden and bake all the time.

can we all just agree that this is what happens when you are a totally fake useless spineless capitulating ridiculous "democrat"?

you lose, dude. you lose. you lose because you have failed to listen to your critics, and because you have abandoned your party time and time again. you are george bush's favorite democrat; maybe you can score a place as one of his marginally appreciated republicans.
and don't run as an independent, you jackass.

seriously. my friends at environmental defense just emailed me*okay okay okay fine. maybe, just maybe, if you have a dimmer fixture that you love/can't get rid of...that is the only excuse.
to let me know that "If every US household replaced three 60-watt
incandescent bulbs with CFLs, it would be like taking 3.5 million
cars off the roads!"
DO IT. it's cheap and easy and it will save you money and everybody pollution.
do it NOW.

so a few weekends ago i was helping g move out. i was standing beside the amazingly full car when i saw a guy (the grandpa [?]) come around the corner with a little dude (probably two or three years old.) grandpa looked like he wasn't totally sure where they were going, and little dude seized the opportunity to take off down the sidewalk toward me.
grandpa was kind of flustered, and was calling after him, "meow*...meow...meow...come back, meow...meow, come back now, come back..." grandpa wasn't really getting anywhere, and i was getting ready to grab the little dude if he made it down the block to me.
but then mom came around the corner too. mom wasn't putting up with any of this. she immediately started saying, "MEOW. MEOW. COME BACK. MEOW. MEOW!" he wasn't paying any sort of attention to her either, and she sighed and then barked, "SPIDERMAN!" little dude instantly stopped running, turned right around, and went over to her. the end!
*where "meow" is the kid's actual name.
