I wrote my political essay for class. My political "memoir" I suppose. I'm not going to post it. Oh, it's good. It's just incredibly offensive. You can read it in my published book, just wait a few years. Everyone else's essays are much better than I expected. I'm both happy and sad about this. Happy that I get to read such great memoirs, but sad that mine won't stand out as much among the masses. Everyone is funny. Everyone is a good writer. 85% of the class are seniors who are English majors.


Rob comes back today for a whole two weeks! Then he goes to all kinds of conferences in places that come from Dr. Seuss books, like Kalamazoo, and places that barely exist, like Janesville. While he's here we are going to try to finally finish taking down the wallpaper glue and then painting the freaking bathroom. Or at least get it all stripped, so that we can paint it again some other time.


I have two fairly large pieces of information that I want to say, but not just yet. One is a huge purchase, the other is a fairly big purchase. Neither are as monumental as you're trying to think they are. Sorry.


Two new blogs that I am addicted to:

http://ikeahacker.blogspot.com/ (also known as ikeahack on LJ)
This blog has all kinds of pictures of things people have made out of IKEA furniture and items, different uses for things, etc. The posts generally have instructions included :)

http://stuffwhitepeoplelike.com/ (also known as swpl on LJ)
Other than coffee, I can read through this thing and think, "I like that..." "I like that..." It's a little ludicrous but definitely hilarious, and brings up so many things I don't even realize I like (see hack #108: Appearing to enjoy classical music)

What does Rob do that he travels so frequently [and to such odd places]?

Well, he's been back and forth to Orlando, where his regional headquarters are. The trips to Michigan and Wisconsin are both sales meetings. he basically does sales and bid proposal type things for Hufcor

Neat! There's an awesome restaurant near us that has a door/windo like this one:

One of our ideas for when we build a house is for it to have a huge door like that, only more like a garage door in that it goes up as one panel and stays under the ceiling when open, like mechanics use.

yeah. they might possibly sell the coolest folding doors and movable wall partitions ever.
