brian meares and i are going camping with some friends this weekend. last night we got out the camping box, and found a mouse had set up camp in the box. good for him - he had so many items at his disposal. propane tanks, lots of string, cans of beans, ponchos, etc. he ate through all these items. so we took everything out, cleaned items, argued about why item was necessary in first place, and loaded it back up.
i'm glad to get out of the house b/c for the last week our ac upstairs has been shot, so we've been sleeping downstairs in the guestroom. although i love this room, the bed is horrible. it creaks and is uncomfortable and could fall apart at any minute. (i'm sorry jennifer and chad. and nick. we need a new bed).
it's also not as dark and dungeony as our bedroom, so brian meares rigged up some beach towel over curtain action to keep the light out. you can imagine my reaction.
i thought it was fantastic.
in preparation for camping, i went searching for a new v-neck t-shirt, b/c that's that's fashionable, right? -- i carried a neon pink one to the register at jcrew in a moment of delusion, but quickly aborted and snapped back to the reality where i will never pay $32 for a t-shirt. i would, however, pay $32 for this teepee in the window.
and last, but not least, look at this fantastic bird. he is of close relation to the monkeys but outshines them in color and general swagger.
i tried to hang 3 birds in a row in the store but they won't hang straight. keila said it looks so horrible it almost looks ok. so i took that as a DONE!
