Some things have happened


– I’ve learned who LeBron James is.
– My iPod mysteriously stopped working.
– So did my deodorant.  (??)
– I hooked up Greta and Kristy as friends.  Thinking about going into matchmaking full-time.  If you need a friend in a certain area of the country, tell me – I’ll take care of you.
– The World Cup came and went and I never watched a single game.
– I walked out of Target to find the Honda covered in orange Post-It notes that said “You are loved.”  You have no idea how much I needed that.
– I vacuumed my car.
– Even still, a spider has taken up residence in the Honda, and every morning I find a fresh, sticky web woven between the emergency break, the stick shift, and the steering wheel.  How can I destroy a spider I can’t find?
– Finally watched “Inglourious Basterds.”  For better or for worse, I’m not sure yet.
– I didn’t have a lime, so I had to use lime juice (from a green plastic squeeze bottle) in my gin & tonic.  I felt like such a fraud.
– Vacation ended.  I drove back to Denver.  Felt lonely and sad.
– I got a lot of emails – if you wrote me, chances are, I haven’t responded yet.  I will.  Promise.
– The Honda went to the shop to get her new bumper.  So long, bumper stickers.
– Currently driving a Kia Optima rental.  It’s white and bitchin’… just like me.

    A) I need a friend in Atlanta, stat.
    B) That post-it note stunt is one of the best ways to convey love I have heard to date. I will store that one away.
    C) Have you done a hard restart on your ipod? Holding the center + play buttons until it shuts down?
    D) If you need a new bumper sticker, I recommend this one: . I always wish I was brave enough to put a bumper sticker on my car.

    You definitely are loved, Annie P. And do you have any friends in Boston? I’m heading up there soon and will need new pals!

    So, as I go into my Google Reader this morning “Could’ve Sworn It Was You” started playing as I clicked on Hootenannie…

    Will they let you keep your old bumper? It could make quite the mantle piece. :)

    Know anyone in OKC?

    Gah – not enough coffee this morning. I put the iPod on shuffle and your song started playing. My electronic devices must be talking. Or conspiring against me.

    Me either, about the World Cup.
    Gin & tonics are my love language.

    Did you find out who plastered your car with Post-Its? You should hug and/or kiss them soon.

    that kind of happens with ipods. several people i know have their ipods fail on them randomly, or all their music is suddenly deleted. it’s one of the reasons i shun trendy technology.

    except for the internet. but that’s so much a part of life it would be like shunning “the wheel.”

    also, i am so opposed to spiders i would just set my car on fire. start fresh with a new one.

    Rose’s Sweetened Lime Juice.
