I keep hoping that a wave of creativity will wash over me or that something crazy will happen so I can write an interesting post.  Unfortunately I just don’t think either of those is a possibility.  I should be writing about my list, but every time I read through it I just want to crumple it up and throw it in the trash.  And possibly start the trashcan on fire.

I think that means it’s time for a meme, don’t you?

2. My dad.
3. Gus (I know. He’s a dog. But still, he does make me laugh.)

Three things I love:
1. Spending time with TTO and my family.
2. Traveling.

2. Cursing the vending machine for being out of Diet Mt. Dew.
