Earth Day

I'm so proud to report that yes, I remembered to take in two reusable bags when I stopped at Rainbow foods on my way home from work. Yes, I work at a SuperTarget, where I couldn't buy cheap yogurt, hence the stop at Rainbow. And yep, I got 18 little tubs of yogurt, which aren't recyclable in my area because they don't have "necks". Sigh. I may as well have bought a bunch of plastic spoons to eat them with. I really do like the earth, I promise!

Our Book Deal

There's an article in today's New York Times about bloggers who strike it rich with book deals. C'mon, you guys, we need to be more interesting so we can get a publisher interested!

Each fall, our borough collects leaves, and then in the spring they offer leaf mulch for sale. The smallest unit is a cubic yard, I think, which is a ton! Last time we got some, the pile lived in our driveway for about 2 years before we managed to get it all used. Well, we bit the bullet and got another delivery this year. We have mulched almost everything possible already, and there's still more than half of it left. I'm not sure what we're going to do with it all...

Pride and Prejudice

There was an article in today's Strib about Marvel's new five comic book issue series on Pride and Prejudice! Basically, people seem to think it's a great way to reach out to young female readers or it's a portent of the coming apocalypse. Either way, I went to Marvel to check it out. I figure if I'm willing to read about the Bennetts and zombies, I certainly can't dismiss a comic book out of hand!
