Things that happened, things I learned, and things I feel must be made known - because someone isn't getting the memos...

Gus and I went to our favorite Chinese restaurant for lunch on Friday. At the end of the meal, they brought our fortune cookies as usual. But Gus's cookie didn't have a fortune. Definitely one of those "hmmmmm" moments. What is the universe trying to tell him?? Don't bother? You're so lucky you don't need no stinkin' fortune? Yeah, let's go with that one...

Fact 1: If your cat is going to yurp - it will be on the carpet.

Yes, people, you really do need to mow that little strip of grass in front of your house. You know, the one between the sidewalk and the street.

Related to above note: If you're the mother of the groom, you really shouldn't buy a neon green dress from a prom shop to wear to the wedding. Even if it does match your neon green Camaro.

And how was your weekend?
