So about the time the Count was saving Albert, Eugenie, and Louise from the evil Muslims who were about to throw them into the volcano alive as a sacrifice to Allah,

I decided the sequel was not as good. :(

In the gardening section of Target:

Me: So if you needed to remove a tree that was trying to grow in your flowerbed, which of these would YOU buy?
Jesse: I would buy an AX!
Me: The tree is only as big around as my pinky.
Jesse: An AX!
Me: ... Okay, pretend you're a woman. Now what do you buy?
Jesse: A really CUTE ax?
Me: *facepalm*
Jesse: ... with like an embroidered holster or something?

It was 109 degrees outside yesterday, and as we drove along the edge of the park adjacent to my apartment we saw three girls standing in the shade holding a piece of posterboard that said in colorful bubble letters:

LEMONADE 75 CENTS

(Yes, inflation) but otherwise SO CHARMING! I have never seen a lemonade stand in real life! I just assumed they had sortof died out with my generation since I never had a lemonade stand and neither did any of my friends. But there they were- jumping up and down and waving their sign. So of course we pulled over. "You are our first customers!!" they bounced. "We will give you lemonade for 50 cents! Do you want regular or pink?" They had been set up about ten minutes. They handed us two glasses of pink lemonade, and Jesse handed them $2, saying gravely that they ought not start giving discounts so early. This made them blush and giggle alot. Someone else was pulling up as we pulled away, so maybe they were successful? I don't know. I hope so.

Also, I pretty definitely spilled almost the whole glass on my white shirt about ten minutes later, right before we got to the movie theatre.

My adorable penguin salt shaker, which was a Christmas present:

Penguin pepper shaker is all alone on my stove top now, wondering if he is next...

I like Lost. Enough to watch it regularly, which is more than I can say for any other TV program (okay, except The Office). To my credit, I have never been the type to spend a lot of time thinking about the show after I'm done watching it, let alone have extended convos about it or read conspiracy theories on the internet.

However, I was QUITE excited last episode when a new character was named after C.S. Lewis, excited enough to google "Charlotte Stapes Lewis" to see what kind of gossip had been generated about the topic in the 24 hours since the episode had aired.

And so it was that I discovered the true depth of the insanity of humanity when given a TV show to play with. I had no idea.

This is a snarky commentary on internet gossip and not a commentary on Lost, but I'll cut for spoilers just in case.Collapse )

I met my (now) roommate at the homeless shelter. He is unemployed and will probably eat me out of house and home but is also ridiculously cute.

His name is Richard Parker.Collapse )

A selection from a serious discussion of potential workstation surfaces.

Mark: Is the only reason we're not doing the laminate because Monty doesn't like materials that imitate wood? I mean, maybe there are other issues here I don't know about, but a wood veneer is fake too: it also just imitates solid wood, so let's not base our decision on that. I want us to pick something we all like the look of and is a good, solid product. Can this surface and construction support Kent climbing on the desks and doing his Holler?

Us: ...

Konrad: Well...
