A World of Leisure

Sounds like the equally exciting task Husband and I had a couple of months ago, taking apart the "box trap," which is a stupid plumbing part used only in old houses (ours) to clean out (I'm assuming this since this is how long we have been here) 17 years of hair and scum...stuff that goes down the drain but doesn't seem to make it all the way down. Remarkably, that slow running drain we spent lots of money trying to fix with junk poured down it now runs like brand new AND (not at all shocking, I'm happy to say) we still like each other, too. And the texting idea opens up a new world of texting shortcuts... LOL (laugh out loud) can be replaced by CUB (chuckled under breath) and BRB (be right back) can now be GBA (going to bathroom....again).

Am I correct in thinking that the sentiment expressed here is, "We still like each other. We must be doing something wrong."?

Planning to watch this when I get home from work and I know it's weird to leave comments unrelated to the blog post but I found something out last night that I had to get out there right away. I went to hear David Sedaris read last night and he said he's having a new book coming out this fall and it will be the first one of his that is illustrated, by none other than Ian Falconer of Olivia fame. First he said it will be book of fables but then corrected himself because fables have morals and his stories will not so he's calling it a bestiary. Reason for telling you all this? I read your book a few months ago and I have just now started to read your blog and I can't do anything out of order so I'm only up to August 2005. But I remembered that you mentioned in a comment that you liked David Sedaris and that your daughter liked the Olivia books (though that was 5 years ago) hence this information couldn't wait until I had caught up with the blog for me to tell it. He read a few stories from the bestiary and while they are not meant for young children, the illustrations, I'm sure, will be priceless.

I love your videos Quinn!

My Better Half and I can't do anything requiring tools together. Not after the track lighting install of 1990.
