Important Life Lesson

Even if you wash your hands after, it is good to remember to put your contact lenses in before you put muscle rub on.

Oh the burning.

Treat Of All Adventure Movies

I went to the library the other day to pick up some movies. One of my selections was The African Queen. I enjoyed watching it as a kid and I haven't seen it in years. I noticed some Asian characters on the case, but didn't think pay them much attention. When I got home I read the synopsis on the back of the case:
During World War I, a hard drinking river trader Charles and a prim missionary Rose are forced to take an adventurous river expedition together. Throughout the voyage, they encounter tropical hazards, nefarious German officers and a surprising romance. The film takes the eventful location in Uganda in Africa and it is a rare treat of all adventure movies.
I have a hunch this may have been written by someone whose first language is not English. Regardless, it made me smile.

Last Wednesday

On the 18th of March, local artist Jenni Haas set to work on a new project. She finished it that night too.

Here is how it looked before:

One Of Life's Little Annoyances

Don't you just love waking up ravenously hungry?

HEY! Stomach! Do I not get to you every morning? Ok, then chill, your time will come.

Until Now

I saw two goose tongues on the weekend. Until now I had never given any thought to birds having tongues. Had you?

This Actually Happened

(I'm standing in my room when my cell phone rings)

Me: (upon recognizing that it is my own house calling) Hey.

Roommate: Hey, are you home?

Me: Yup. I'm in my room.

Roommate: Oh, good. 'Cause we thought you weren't home yet and we knew you didn't have your key and the door is locked.

Me: Nope, I'm here. I'm the one who shut off the downstairs lights and locked the door.

Roommate: (laughs) Ok, we just thought we'd check as we hadn't heard you come in yet.

Me: No problem. Oh, hey, are you done in the bathroom? 'Cause I want to take a shower.

Roommate: (laughs) Yeah, the bathroom is all yours.

Me: Excellent.

Roommate: Ok, well, goodnight.

Me: Goodnight.

Maaaaaarching To Which End

Psssst, hey, March, yeah, you, I gots a question for you; it may involve a deal. Ok - so you know how you have that Lion/Lamb-Lamb/Lion thing? Well, which is this? 'Cause I'd like to propose that we call this one Lion. When it feels like -25 and the wind gives me an ice cream headache it reminds me of lions. Ok, it doesn't remind me of lions, it reminds me that Jesus hasn't come back yet. But you get the picture.

Let's just make it easy for you. We'll all say that you came in like a terrible, carniverous, fearsome lion. There is no need for precipitation of the frozen variety to prove your point. I'm already convinced. So you be all scary for a bit longer and then you can go right ahead and make a gradual and seamless transition into lambliness. Deal? Deal.

I'm glad we had this little chat.
