* We'll start with Georgie bathed in light. I've been calling him George a lot more lately and it sounds so sophisticated when you say it the French way Jorje.
* The mortgage lady from ING just called and said we were approved for refinancing. I still have my doubts once we submit all the paperwork. We look poor on paper.
*Patricia asked about how the screen snap-on pet door was working out. Well, it came apart on poor Georgie who understandably freaked out. Once we got it off we realized that just cutting the hole in the screen (which you have to do to install the door) works just as well and costs NOTHING. So, lesson learned. And no flies in the house either.
* The school is hinting about how I should get my master's degree in education. I was relieved that I can't start until January due to how the program is cycled. The program if for teachers who are working. I never thought I'd consider going back to school and yet here I am doing just that.
* Who was that guy recently, some sports knucklehead, who said, "I don't want my kids growing up thinking it's okay to be gay." I thought that was about as ridiculous a statement as, "I don't want my kids growing up thinking it's okay that the sky is cloudy." Absurd.
* At my last dental visit, it was the most effortless experience ever. See, I religiously flossed for the past year. Before, I was a spotty flosser and only got serious a couple of weeks before my appointment. Then lots of blood, tartar and pain. This time, nothing! I mentioned my dedication to flossing as she remarked how little tartar I had and she said, "It's not magic." Indeed.
* You know what's irritating. When your cartridge works for a few days after you put it in and then your printer decides it doesn't like it anymore. I'm so over the proprietary BS of printers. Can we get an open source generic printer? Such a scam. Dell, you disappoint me.
* Picked up some maps for France and Spain at the CAA (auto club) Did I mention the parental units are treating us again in October? Beyond excited we are.
* On my way over there from the voice over gig (I got a second one when another guy cancelled at the last minute yippee) I passed by the replica of St Peter's in Rome. For some reason, I always thought this building was some government building. So I went inside and sure enough, it was just like what we saw in Vatican city. Albeit smaller.
* Outside, there was a plaque explaining the guy whose idea it was. Apparently in a very protestant time and place, he wanted CATHOLICISM to be visible. Here's a link to the wikipedia article, if you care.
