*My favorite houseplant, okay my only houseplant, a once green philodendron, is sick.
*While I'm asking for advice, I have another issue. We have a somewhat large mole family living in our back yard and tearing up our grass. At first it seemed like only one mole, which while annoying, wasn't a big deal. Now it appears as if we have the mole version of the Duggars living in our yard. Plus, the matter is made worse by Liz Lemon who sniffs out the moles and digs up the grass where she thinks they are. This brings me to my question: Does anyone know of a cruelty free way to get rid of moles? I can't stress the cruelty free part enough. I really don't want to kill them. I just want to make my yard undesirable so that they head under the fence and into the yards of my unsuspecting neighbors. I like my neighbors and all, but it's every yard for itself at this point.
*While investigating the mole situation, I noticed we have some small limes on our tree.Of course right now these are just useless babies, but soon enough they'll be garnishing my nightly vodka tonic.
*Wednesday night the electricity flicked off. A moment later it came back on. My computer monitor, on the other hand(which may have been the first monitor ever), did not. I lugged out the emergency monitor. (Does everyone have an emergency supply of slightly shitty electronics, or is that just us?) Anyway, emergency monitor was blurry and took up half the desk. So Thursday morning Jay and I had to head over to Best Buy and break a resolution by putting a new monitor on a credit card. It was painful to use that credit card because since January I had paid that card down quite a bit. But as Jay said, "We're going to have to buy things sometimes." And he's right. Overall, our spending habits and attitudes about credit have drastically changed and I'm proud of us. On the bright side, the new monitor is really nice, so bright and clear. I had no idea I had been using such a sub par piece of equipment. I imagine this is how blind people feel after being granted the gift of sight.
*Finally:: I'm A Celebrity, Get me Out of Here. I don't really enjoy "reality tv" and wasn't at all interested in this show when the only Baldwin on it was useless, slow eyed Stephen, who I might add, appears to be the only Baldwin without chest hair. But now crazy Daniel is on. As most of you know, I'll watch anything with Alec in it, since he's hot, sexy Baldwin. But when he's not around, I have a two Baldwin rule. I'm forced by my own rule to watch this stupid show. This show is on four nights a week! Hopefully a Baldwin gets voted off soon, and hopefully it's Stephen.
