Here's a bunch of completely unrelated stuff:
I went to Waterfire last weekend with my parents and grandparents.
It lived up to the hype, and we had a ton of fun. Of course, it probably helped that the weather was perfect, and we had a nice dinner before dark here.
Last time I had diet coke was August 11th. I miss the caffeine every second of every day, particularly around 2 pm totally don't miss it. Instead I have successfully been drinking hot herbal teas (no caffeine) and crystal light fruit punch fake walmart-brand crystal-lite-type fruit punch. (I know, the chemicals, but one thing at a time.) I am proud of myself for ridding my body of at least part of the chemicals and caffeine I used to have every day, and am very glad to have discovered so many yummy fruity herbal teas.
Automatic car starters are cool. Did you know that many brands have a K-9 setting, and can be made to run the car for an entire HOUR? I am happy about this, because it means I can travel with the Murph and leave him in the car with confidence that he will be safe and cool or warm as needed if I need to run into a restroom or a shop/restaurant for a couple of minutes.
