I’ve been slaving away on several mud pits gardens, and against the advice of every plant-savvy person I know, I was dragging my heels on putting down mulch. I finally got around to it yesterday, and my plants were immediately all, “Hey, thanks!” Not only do the plants seem to like it, the mulch makes the garden beds look less sloppy.
2. When Crunchy is the guest analyst on NBC.
I felt pretty sorry for Ryan Miller that he had to attempt to interact professionally with Pierre and Milbury, but it was still good to see him. He looked so handsome and relaxed. Isn’t it amazing how he’s morphed from a straggly looking weirdo into a well-composed weirdo/borderline-star? I liked how he casually had he hands resting on the desk. Good old, Crunchy.
3. These hoops I made to hang above my couch.
I saw this idea online somewhere and I stole it for myself. It’s just pretty fabric stretched over embroidery hoops and hung on the wall. I think it’s super cute and I’m quite proud of myself.
4. When Chris Pronger steals the game puck and then throws it in the garbage can.
I’m sorry, but that’s some hilariously villainous shit.
5. Netflix through my Wii
I never used my Wii until Netflix came along and made their service much much more awesome.
6. My BFF Courtney’s new little dude. His name is Edison, but I’m going to have a hard time not calling him Eddy. I’ve been given the green light on Eddy, as long as it’s spelled E-d-d-y and not E-d-d-i-e.
7. The NBA
Yep, still like it.
8. Bagel Thins
I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking, “Katebits, Bagel Thins are stupid,” but you’re WRONG WRONG WRONG. Bagel Thins kick ass. The trouble with regular bagels is that they are too bulky. In order to get the bread/meat ratio right in a bagel sandwich you have to use so much meat that the whole thing becomes too big. Then, when you bite into your too-big bagel sandwich, all the meat and cheese tries to slide out the other side. With a Bagel Thin, the correct bread/ratio is easy to achieve, and everyone wins. Plus, they’re only 110 calories, if you care about that sort of thing. I do not care about the number of calories. I just enjoy good sandwiches.
9. No violas in “The Music Man”
The BPO recently did a semi-staged production of “The Music Man,” which by all accounts was a lovely show. I wasn’t there to see it though, because for some reason there are no violas in the Music Man score. This amounted to two surprise days off, aka, the best thing in the history of time and space.
Is there anything better on a hot day than a popsicle? Nope.
