Wait, why are you all running awaaaay?!?
In between booking hotels for a few nights in Oregon, I'm trying to find gifts for my own kids' birthdays in August. So far, Lauren has very few ideas other than ugly burlap pillows (which I predict she'll hate by Christmastime), and Christopher has a massive LEGO list that is... somewhat vaguely described (no model numbers). Whee!
Speaking of descriptions, there's an impromptu fruit stand on my way to work with a sign that says, "Real sweet watermelons." Why—are people selling fake watermelons these days? But my son thinks the sellers mean, "Really sweet watermelons" instead. Oh. Much less fun.
Voting for LJ Idol ends tomorrow, and so far the entries for my Champion author witchofthedogs and my own story are really lagging in the polls (either one could get me eliminated). I'm envious of those who can bring friends from Facebook over to vote. Facebook! Ha! Not only do I keep my net-life and real life separate, I only have about 20 Facebook friends, most of them family members who don't post any more often than I do. (My brother still doesn't have an actual picture up—he has the "blank head" avatar). So yeah, I'm nervous about being voted out. *bites nails* *refrains from refreshing depressing poll yet again*
Weekend plans, anyone? A last hurrah before schools starts up again, or just mainlining Olympics broadcasting?
