Totally nothing

Well will you look at that, I have nothing to say. Really. No exciting excursions or events have occurred in the last couple days. The best part of the day yesterday was reading the newspaper cover to cover on the sofa over coffee. There was a big piece on the Rwanda genocide in '94 because a guy was convicted for war crimes here who was responsible for killing and raping hundreds. There were other stories from witnesses too. Apparently, the witnesses have to be cloaked as they are still being assassinated in Rwanda. Everybody there is supposed to act like nothing ever happened I guess. Anyway, that event reminded me why holocaust museums are important. Genocide seems to be part of our nature, so it's best to remind people how to avoid it.

Our yard has succumbed to the dandelions. Honestly, if I tried to rip them up I think there'd be three blades of grass left. They are so sturdy. I cut them down last week and they just double up on you when you do that. It is a field of yellow flowers now.

This was in my spam file but I found the subject line so compelling that I had to click on it. It was, of course, still spam. I did not click on the link in the email thankyouverymuch. I kind of liked "infinitely remanded monotony" too. That's how life seems sometimes.

In related news, someone found my blog by searching "dog turd is better than guacamole". Though I've written on both and photographed both, I'm sure I've never shared that sentiment.

See, I told you I had nothing to say. Move along now.

Slow weekend here too.

Well, you're still managing to blog more than I am lately, though part of my problem is having too much on my plate.

Just to be on the safe side, I always put my dildo in my checked luggage

That reminds me - i need to pick up some guac and chips on my 'walk of shame' home this morning...
:p

And you really do have to be daring to bring sex toys through an airport - I don't think I'd have the courage.

I've got the damn dandelions too! I hate them! I can't get the grass to grow but the damn dandelions are popping up like unwanted relatives after a lottery win!

Dandelion wine, anyone?

Delightfully mellow weekend in progress here, as well. As long as you stay off the local roads, which seem to be semi-mobbed with weekend tourists.

It's funny, you blog when you don't have anything to say and I DON'T blog because I've got too MUCH to say.

You can't just cut or pull them (the dandelions, I mean, not the guacamole dog turds). ;-) You need a special tool that pops out the root. It's pretty easy, and that's the most effective way to get rid of one. And those roots are huge--I once pulled one and got a piece of the Great Wall with it. :-)

You could very easily have talked about further bathroom habits. I'm sure you've got plenty in your arsenal.

Somehow your nothing-to-says still wind up being entertaining.

I agree with Rick.
