Random Non-Linky Stuff:
It’s been pretty windy and stormy for the past week, and though our corn and tomatoes are loving the rain, they’ve been taking quite a battering. Do you think we should stake them upright? I’m just worried that if this wind keeps up it’ll blow all our plants over!
I just got back from the newsagent where I stood in line nervously for five minutes hoping they hadn’t sold out of today’s Daily Telegraph Lord of the Rings “Saruman” pin only to have the clerk pull out a giant bag of about a hundred and then struggle to tear it open, thus proving that I was the first nerd in the whole shopping center to actually ask for one. *cringe* And I have to go back tomorrow for Gandalf day!
Helen finally got me. I had a bunch of fake little plastic spiders out as decorations for my Halloween party and that cheeky Luna Lovegood went around hiding them in my house to scare me later. I found most of them right away (though it did take me a couple weeks to discover the one floating in the jalapeno jar at the back of the fridge). Then last night I decided to take a shower in the guest bathroom for the first time in ages. It was all steamy; I didn’t have my contacts in; and as I lifted up the bar of soap something black with many legs flipped up off the dish. My response is best left to your imagination, but I will say it’s a wonder I didn’t kill myself jumping around on the slippery tiles. Damn you, Helen! 🙂
