Jimminy Christmas you can't live forever!

My sister reminded me that it's been a while since I wrote anything. The Most Beautiful Man in the World had done so also. Apologies to both for having been quiet in the blogosphere.

Hmm...It appears that it's been a month since my last post. So how about a brief summary of happenings since then?

-I came back from Canada and had my allergies flare up almost as soon as I crossed the border. I'm pretty sure I'm allergic to my own country.
-I discovered the joy of Tim Hortons: hot tea, bagel, and a donut for less than a fiver.
-Frazier got to swim in 4 of the Great Lakes.
-I (mostly) avoided Midwestern floods.
-I bought Ikea furniture and moved into my new place.
-I saw my niece graduate from high school. I'm now one of those people that says "I remember holding you when you were just a baby".
-I did not ride my bike very much.

One good thing about being busy is that it leaves little time for run-ins with People I'm Bound To Hate.

That's some of what I've done. But let's move on to what I'm looking forward to!

Our dealer show is rapidly approaching which means I'll be spending nearly all of August in Wisconsin. I missed the conference call during which our room arrangements were decided and apparently Ross said she wanted to room with me so that she could stab me in the jaw. Our logistics lady thought this was a good enough reason for me to room with her. Ross promises that it will really hurt, but has offered to puree food for me so I can at least stay fed and watered. Ross says it's going to be incredible. I have my doubts, but it's mostly about how well she'll puree the food.

There's a little matter of a trip to the UK over July 4th weekend, too. I've chosen to spend my Independence Day in the country from which The Colonists broke away. I think I'll drink lots of tea while I'm there.

Alright, let's get a couple things straight:

1. I didn't say I "wanted" to room with you, I said "if I had" to room with you.

2. I didn't say I would puree your food for you. I said I would buy you the finest quality blender I could find (at Target, not those fancy kitchen stores) so you can puree your own food. I'm probably going to have other people to stab in the jaw, so I won't have time to mush up your food for you.

3. Yes, it WILL be incredible! Get ready to live!

Wow, a blog post! I'd almost forgotten that this place existed :)

See you next week!
