I know, I know. I've been bad about consistently updating the blog this last week – my excuse is that the boyfriend & I have been busy trying to find a new place to live. Yesterday, en route to a house for rent, we spotted a cute black and white cat – with only one eye and three legs. Sounds a little scary, but it wasn't: he was super soft, sweet, and looked like he was winking at us.
On my daily walk to the bus stop, I'll sometimes see odd things strewn across the front yard of a nearby house. Once there was a couple dozen plastic rings – but not just any plastic rings. Neon spider plastic rings. The other day there were several pairs of jean shorts lying there. Each time I see something, it appears to be an accident, as if fallen out of a half-zippered backpack.

Tweenbots is a cool little story about New Yorkers helping a small robot along its way. See? People like helping people! Er... I mean... people like helping robots?

Makes me wish I saved more of my old notes: Dear Gretchen, a book featuring graphs, charts, and other goodness analyzing Gretchen's childhood letters.
The Pioneer Woman Cooks is fast becoming one of my favorite resources for recipes – step-by-step photography and a little humor are always pluses in my book.
I've been wanting some little succulents, like these from greenware design. If I got any, though, Rufus the cat would likely destroy them. At 4 a.m. this morning, he was chewing on his favorite plastic plant in the bedroom, knocked it off the bookshelf, and shattered the vase. Then, for good measure, he started pawing at my jewelry. So much for that...
