* Would anybody be even remotely surprised if this were true? And the answer to this question posed by some small businesses in Minneapolis. NO!

* Palestinians dress as Na'vi to protest Israeli barrier.

Sorry, I got nothin'

* It's been one month since the earthquake in Haiti. The rainy season is fast approaching, and now Haitians are being told that they're no longer getting the tents they were originally promised. Now, they're being given one piece of plastic per family until they can get them more permanent building materials starting May 1st. That's right. ONE PIECE OF PLASTIC. IN THE RAINY SEASON.

* Since I've been so talented at screwing up my knee in the past, I am now the expert on knee injuries. My father-in-law called me up and asked about where he can find a knee brace. I'm also taking him to a doctor's appointment later this afternoon.

* There's nothing like petting a cat that's been sitting in the warm sun. Cosette was basking in a patch of sunlight, so I joined her. The sun felt good and the kitty's fur was nice and warm. Kitty snuggles!

* I took [livejournal.com profile] doomsey's dad to the doctor's office. I brought my German textbook with me to start learning some more vocabulary. Said doctor is friends with my family; she went to [livejournal.com profile] doomsey and my wedding. Anyhow, when she came out to the reception area to talk, I mentioned that I was studying another language. She boggled at how many languages I know, then she told me that I should consider working for the government. Then, after the doctor's office, I took my father-in-law to the drug store to find a knee brace. The one that I had brought over turned out to be too small.

* Tonight, we had John and [livejournal.com profile] emygination over for dinner. We were talking about recipes over the chocolate bread pudding I had made last week, and at some point, I decided to show them my great-grandmother's recipe book. Everybody thought it was amazing. They were particularly amused by some of the recipes and ads dating back to the 1920s and 1930s, which had been clipped out of the newspaper. One of these days, I should scan everything before the pages start deteriorating. I'm also considering posting links to some of the recipes.

* Now this is just plain ridiculous. (Swiped from [livejournal.com profile] doomsey)

* Ouch! (Also swiped from [livejournal.com profile] doomsey)
