1. It's raining now, but yesterday afternoon I called an audible and cancelled our standing Thursday afternoon gym date in favor of going home and planting our zinnia seeds. It's supposed to rain all of today and most of Saturday, and I'm just REALLY REALLY READY to have those things in the ground, so a Thursday afternoon planting it was. Now I just need it to not freeze for the rest of the spring. If any of you can call in any favors with the weather, I'd appreciate it.
2. We have NO PLANS TOMORROW!! That is my favorite kind of Saturday on earth. (Scratch that, my MOST FAVORITE kind of Saturday would really be one spent on a beach in Mexico...so I guess this is my second favorite kind.) We want to see a movie, but we have a dilemma. American Hustle just got to our local cheapie theater. I really want to see that. But we haven't seen Divergent yet...and clearly, I want to see that, too. Obviously Divergent is at the nice (expensive) theater, but I have a gift card, so it'd be free. So there's really no financial incentive to stick to the cheap seats...just a really tough decision. Feel free to weigh in.
3. I bought this candle at Target last Friday.
Based on the unbelievably amazing scent that I couldn't stop inhaling the entire car ride home, I declared it early on to be the 'BEST CANDLE EVER.' Shocking that I would make such a bold declaration about anything. Ha. Anyway, I still stand by that as long as we're only talking about sniffing it in its unburned state. However, I was sad to discover that once it's actually burning...you know, as candles do...it wasn't nearly as strongly scented. I'm used to a candle that can sit in the living room and fill up our whole (not terribly large) house with its scent. Bath and Body Works candles do it. Yankee candles do it. This guy...doesn't. Sad face. I mean, it still smells super good burning, but you can only smell it within like a 10 foot radius.
Yesterday I theorized that maybe if I brought it to a smaller, lower-ceilinged, more enclosed place, maybe it would permeate the air a little better. So I brought it to my office at work.
BINGO. Freaking amazing. Now I feel like I'm working in a spa. I'm generously letting my co-workers come in and inhale my air for free this week. Next week, once they're hooked, I'm going to start charging. CHA-CHING! But for real. You don't get to go to the aromatherapy spa for free just cause you work with me, people.
4. Please weigh in on this hypothetical situation.
Person A (who doesn't currently have a computer or phone at hand): I wonder ______.
Person B (holding a laptop): I don't know...I'll Google it!
Person A: Oh, great! Thanks!
Person B: *typing* *click click click*
Person A: *peeks a look at the screen and is horrified to see THIS*
Person A: Whaaa?? WHHHYYY?? Did you go there ON PURPOSE to look something up??
Person B: Oh, what? Yeah, of course. Why, what's wrong?
Person A: DO YOU LIVE IN THE 1990s?? Do you have a pet Tamagotchi too?? Do you know know that the word 'Google' actually MEANS SOMETHING and is not just a synonym for 'search'?? Even though, I mean, it is a synonym...BUT YOU CAN'T USE IT IF YOU'RE NOT GOING TO USE IT!!!!
Person B: *doesn't get what the problem is*
Person A: *continues mocking Person A for the next 100 years*
In your opinion, who is in the right here? Should Person B change their ways and use a non-embarrassing search engine? Can Person A ever trust Person B again? Asking for a friend...
