Weekly Update

Already?? Where did the week go?

Sentence I never thought I'd say:

"I'm gonna crawl through the sunroof to get a better shot."

We were on Skyline Drive and saw a mama bear and two cubs foraging for berries at the side of the road. Not being a complete idiot, I knew enough not to get out of the truck but I wanted a good picture.

Favorite Fail: I'll just go ahead and apologize for this now. But think, someone not only had to look at that, they actually took a picture of it.

Favorite Engrish: I'm so getting one of these nighties.

My "DUH" moment:

Sam and I were walking through Costco, that evil mecca of over consumerism, and he asked if I wanted to get some books. I said no, we'd already spent enough and they're about $25 each. I walked on a bit more quite seriously pondering to myself. I shared my enlightening thoughts: "you know what we need? Somewhere to rent books like you do dvd's and games. Once you're done with it, trade it for a new one and then we wouldn't have to keep buying new ones all the time at $25 each". Poppets, I was dead serious. I can only hope the people who heard thought I had a devastatingly dry wit and didn't think I was some stupid hick who'd never heard of a library.

I'm cracking up. I say ridiculous things like that too. Shhh, lean in close. In the grocery store I recently proclaimed, it's like *everywhere* sound! SO looks at me and says, you mean surround sound? Umm yeah, I guess that is what I meant.

Gotta love it! My friends and I do book exchange all the time. Something about just dumping your books off and getting a new bagful without having to go to the library? It's like Christmas every couple of weeks...
