I have no idea what that is even. Do tell !

It's kind of like what you were talking about but on a mass scale. People will set up in a park or somewhere where everyone can somewhat easily gather and everything is free. You bring stuff you'd like to give away whether it be something physical or a certain skill that you have. People will even bring their trucks/cars and transport things for you for free.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Really_Really_Free_Market


This is such an amazing idea. Unfortunately there is nothing like that around here but I would love it there were!

You say you like buying yourself flowers? Well why not start a little hobby of learning how to forage for free flowers, it's pretty simple. Go for walks around your neighborhood with a pair of clippers, look for any abandoned kind of homes, or alleyways, or unkempt planters/sidewalk area... You'll be able to find nice stuff for sure that no one will mind at all if you take. Even if all you can find is some nice foliage, a cool sprig of something in a vase always looks pretty.


I would love to do this. Especially in the forest where I can get some pretty wild flowers.

I would be happy never having to listen to omnivore people defending their paleo diet ever again. It just not making any sense. And the inherent self righteousness that usually comes with a paleo diet doesn't help either.

Yep. I still can't talk about anything food related with my omni friend who turned (militant) paleo. Sadface.

Waiting for potential future tenants to show up and take a look at my flat.
I hope they won't instantly find it way too hot in here - I don't want to pay double rent for months and months!

It went rather well. They were early and seemed genuinely interested. Also, they're going to be abroad for most of July, so they want to sign a lease really soon and then move in mid-August or early September. (Which would be perfect.)
Fingers crossed.

It's so ridiculously dark outside, and it's only noon. There's only a 30% chance of rain, but it looks really nasty out, like tornado nasty. It's going to sprinkle for a while, and then pour when I have to leave for work. Such is my luck.

I am seriously hating life right now. I have a 56 mile team ride tomorrow morning and weather.com is calling for a 50% chance of rain the whole time I will be out there. Alone, because I can't keep up with my teammates. Oh, and chance of thunder. Awesome. This is in a hick town 45 minutes north of here, where they are notorious for being hateful to cyclists.

I'm trying to think of what town you're talking about, but there are at least four I can name off the top of my head. Boo.

But you'll kick asparagus, as per the usual.

So a non-ppk vegan has appeared in one of the other forums I frequent (where I was actually having a good time with some friends that I rarely see). At first I was glad to see that I'm no longer the only vegan there. However, she's one of those people who have to use the word vegan at least twice in every post they make (even if it's just chatter, she has to end everything with "vegan greetings" or somesuch nonsense), and also posting links to vegan info sites all over the place. This in a place where people mostly discuss books.
How can I tell her that I wish she was less...obtrusive? I'm afraid she'll take the fun out of everything and make the non-vegans think ill of all of us.

I am glad I took a shower last night. We had a bad storm and I got an email this morning saying we are under mandatory water restriction until further notice. Now I have to figure out if that means we can't drink water. If so, I might need to buy some from the store.

Clopen. 4 hours sleep. So tired. Can't wait to come home and take a nap.

Once you're out there, you'll be fine. I often dread rides but am ALWAYS fine once I'm out riding. Have fun! I'm doing about that distance today too!

I'm glad you didn't lose power! That was quite a storm. The wind here felt like being in a wind tunnel; I'm surprised we don't have more trees down around here. Our lights were flickering for a good 10 minutes.

The lightning was really beautiful though.

1408, which is a Steven King story about a haunted hotel room. It dances through so many little horror clichés with such elegance and grace and always gives you the one you weren't expecting.

I was truly terrified starting out, mainly about the climbing. But one of my teammates fell before the ride even started (wet, slick pavement) and when we were grouping up, he volunteered to ride with me so he could take it easy. I was so grateful not to have to do that ride alone that I almost burst into tears! And the new coach rode with us too. Sooo. It still sucked a fair bit with the rain and the crasshole drivers and the hiiiiiillllllsss, but I made it! I am really, really trying to learn to love the bike the way I learned to love running, but it's a challenge.

Hey, you're braver than I am. Last night I had the music from the Exorcist stuck in my head and it was enough to keep me from falling asleep for a while.

holy shiitake, what is my life right now. I just gave a grown man a double mohawk and dyed it... and am now helping another one make a dress.

eta- all in preparation for a music festival, might i add. One of them is wearing a cat tent on his head and dancing around. ...we're all sober.
