A recent college graduate was being interviewed for a job to start September 1st. “You’ll get $650 a week to start off,” the boss told him. “Then in January that will be raised to $800 a week.”

“That’s great,” the prospect says. “How about if I take that European trip I’ve been wanting and just come back in January?”

Blissfest 2007

I think we're gonna opt out of our annual trip to Blissfest this year,
instead taking a week and a half to go out to the East Coast.
Just in case you were wondering....

Time To Upgrade To A Big Girl Bike

On goals:

"Disturb us, Lord, when we are too well pleased with ourselves, when our dreams have come true because we have dreamed too little, when we arrive safely because we have sailed too close to shore. Disturb us, Lord, to dare more boldly to venture on wider seas where storms will show Your mastery; where losing sight of land we shall find stars. We ask You to push back the horizons of our hopes; we ask You to push in the future in strength, courage, hope, and love."
-- Sir Francis Drake - 16th century English sailor

Now That Pisses Me Off

I picked up a disc by P.O.D., a hard-rock Christian band, called Satellite, and featuring the songs Alive, Boom, Satellite, and Youth Of The Nation.
It turns out those songs are their soft and mellow selections; the rest of the album kicked my ass and then spit on me.
I like those songs that I listed above, but when I listen to this collection, I don't get a warm fuzzy feeling of religious inspiration.

It's a tough world, yo.

I Love Great Soaps

I love great soaps. When people ask what I might enjoy as a birthday present, I tell them I would love some wonderful soap for my morning shower. It is, for me, one of those simple yet important things that are worth the extra expense.

Good soaps and good beers. You shouldn't deprive yourself of either, for life is too short to look back and say that you really should have enjoyed them.

My sister and I were shopping together for some delicious foodstuffs. We had a get-together with the whole family later in the day, so we left our kids with our spouses and off we went to Plumb's. I don't have a Plumb's grocery in my city, and I thought it was just another chain store. But I was wrong about that. Plumb's is more like a Whole Foods or a Trader Joe's, sorta half and half with the organics and the regular stuff.

So the two of us were zig-zagging through the store because we were buying unusual stuff: better cheese and bread and snacks and salad fixin's and... and there was the soap section! All those awesome scents and colors and single-wrapped delicious flavors almost begging to be sniffed. So, yeah, we picked up nearly every different bar and give it a deep sniff.

We're both like that: give us a new thing, like, say, a notebook, and we're likely to flip it open to smell the new paper. We sniff on new clothes and old books. We check the scent of all the pungent beer-making ingredients for her husband's home brews.

I found the Doctor Bronner's soaps were on sale, and I bought three bars. I should have taken six or ten bars home with me. When I'm not washing with them, they make my bathroom and bedroom smell good, too.

Today, after a day at work, I came home an put the roof panels on my garden shed patio overhang. It's 10:23 PM and I haven't had dinner yet. But I'm going to do that, and then I'm going up for a shower. I'm gonna get all lathery with the eucalyptus bar and then slip into the sheets for a bit of time with my current book.
