Earth Hour 2012!

My candles are lit and I am ready for Earth Hour. How about you?

Thomas Edison said this, oh, around 100 years ago…

“We are like tenant farmers chopping down the fence around our house for fuel when we should be using Nature’s inexhaustible sources of energy: sun, wind and tide. … I’d put my money on the sun and solar energy. What a source of power! I hope we don’t have to wait until oil and coal run out before we tackle that.

Oh, Thomas. If you only knew.




If I kept a gratitude journal, today’s entry would be really good.

First, I heard the news that Danny Wegman was in town to scope out more locations in Boston (see this morning’s post).

Second, I had to buy a new phone, so bought one with a QWERTY keyboard. Oh, the time I will save when texting! I was off the grid for a few days (my phone had died on Sunday) and it was really nice. I started to miss texting, though. And if Olive had bitten my arm off, I couldn’t have called 911.

Third, I bought what I am calling “my Kermit blazer” at the Gap. I have been ogling it for weeks, and there was only one left in the store. On sale. In my size.

And most importantly, Olive did not poop in my bed again. Yes, I got into bed last night, tired from a long day. And I smelled poop. And I looked around and there it was. UNDER the covers. Traumatizing.

In conclusion, I am grateful for all of the above. Now I need to figure out how to text on my new phone.

About Last Night


Well, the most exciting moment from last night’s viewing of Mad Men was the revelation that Don Draper and I share a birthday!

I also learned that I highly enjoy mai tais. Making them and drinking them.

And I was reminded that you should try to avoid sleeping with coworkers if you can help it. And middle-aged businessmen should not marry their 23-year-old secretaries.

I don’t want to give anything away, so I will leave it at that.
