I am a DRAGON! Fire Dragon, specifically. (According to Wikipedia, at least.)

My husband got a Fire for his birthday and the one-time avowed hater of e-readers LOVES IT. No kidding. Your book would be a great treat for him.

I want Sarah Manley to win the Tempur-Pedic bed!
I like to use as a reference. Since it uses food blogs you can check the comments to see if anyone made adjustments, plus you can be fairly sure that the recipes work because someone is posting having made them.

If you're willing to have me/us join you, maybe we can go to 100 Acres together. I've been meaning to check it out. Also, keep your eyes open for a Living Social deal on the Rhythm Discovery Center. I think I've seen discount tickets offered there. I love things made with PVC! If there's a Menards near you, check out their ad — they often have PVC on sale.

Much empathy to you (and Jen). I absolutely DESPISE calling AT&T. I hate calling them so much that, when I asked for a phone upgrade for Christmas, I told my husband that the free phone was fine because the gift was having him call to set it up. I have not had an experience with a line cutter but I am the kind of person that might throw down over that should it happen when I am not at my best (i.e., rested, fed, in a patient mood, and not in a hurry -- you know, never). Even on a bad day I would likely let someone in front of me who asked, but simply butting in ON PURPOSE doesn't fly.

What is it about hockey gear that makes it smell so awful? Everyone I know who plays hockey, or lives with someone who does, has this same lament. Do you make him keep his pads in the garage? That's what other women I know do to their husbands.

#1, I agree that you should've been thanked. Let's just get that out of the way. I'm on your side. I thank people when they should be thanked, and I expect to be thanked when I should be. It's the minimum courtesy for a polite society. #2, I think doing something that's a favor and then getting angry that there's no response means that it wasn't actually a favor. It means you expected something in return, so not giving it away as a favor would be best for you in the future. A favor is given with no strings attached, hidden or otherwise. #3, I think sending the message you sent to the Person You Know is borderline passive aggressive, but I'm going to assume that you're good friends and are free to vent to one another in that fashion, so no foul. I think posting this exchange on your blog is questionable, though, and I'm having a hard time not seeing it as PA. You are not asking how you could avoid this in the future or seeking help some other way, you are pointing out how you're angry and have a right to be but not confronting the person who upset you. #4, In the spirit of doing things differently I think you should follow your own Company Policy, namely "11. If you don't want to do something, don't do it. It's stupid to go along and be miserable." If no one ever thanks you for this kind of help, and you clearly expect to be thanked, then be clear about your expectation up front or don't do the work. I'm leaning toward DON'T DO IT. It doesn't matter if you were e-mailed as if you already agreed, you can still say no. If you don't want people to think it's all about them (Company Policy addendum from 5/29/09) then be clear that it's all about you. Standing up for yourself can be as much about the prevention of being wronged as your reaction to it. Good luck.

Your kid doesn't even wear pants when company is over? Nice. Also, that other boy must not be *totally over* his mom walking around snapping photos of everything. :-)

FUNNY. The Huz is not grossed out by feminine products. I use a Moon Cup (link below) and he sees it sitting around on the counter, being rinsed in the sink, and being inserted/removed. (Too much sharing?) I never understood why men are uncomfortable about buying pads and tampons. Doesn't it mean they have a woman at home? Isn't that to be proud of? It seems like it would be much more awkward for a tween girl to have to buy them than a grown man.

A friend of mine had her wedding reception in this area of the ISM. It was fantastic. This is a great shot.

I believe a group of dolphins is called a pod. Not trying to be a jerk by telling you that, just sharing because I think it's cool. :-) How cool to see something like that from the beach! And y'all from your balcony! That's amazing.

Anna and I read and loved The Penderwicks too. I had no idea there was a sequel! I'm putting it on the wish list now... Around the same time we conquered The Penderwicks we also read The Tale of Despereaux. The book was wonderful -- so much better than the movie, which we both found to be a bit of a disappointment after reading the book together. Bill and Anna have been through the Little House series but I thought those were snoozers. He bought the Anne of Green Gables series for Anna *last* Christmas but they only made it through the first book so far. This year Anna and I have read a few that she really enjoyed: The Wanderer The Schwa Was Here Emmy and the Incredible Shrinking Rat The Book of One Hundred Truths Of those, the one that is most appropriate for a 7YO is Emmy and the Incredible Shrinking Rat. It has good lessons, excitement, a little fantasy, and really neat artwork around the edge of the pages. Right now she and Bill are going through Bud, Not Buddy, which I think she's digging. She is a voracious reader on her own but I've only mentioned books that we read know, since that's the topic here. :-) We have Anna 50% of the time and we only read for about 30 minutes at bedtime so it takes a while to get through a book together, but I'm always amazed at how accurately she can recall the story's details.
