Who knew that 2 heroine addicts could be so clever.
If only Andy Roddick had consulted his mailman before Wimbledon, things might have been very different.

My friend Jill recently blogged about a Canadian band who fought back at United Airlines for breaking an expensive Taylor acoustic guitar and refusing to pay for damages. This is priceless and my form of revenge.
Here is an article from the CBC I found.
Here's the video on YouTube (sorry, couldn't figure out how to imbed the video right onto my blog):
I am fighting with the delusion that I'm actually going to get any work done today while in the office. It's too nice outside and there are a million other things that I'd rather be doing right now.
Oh my!! I love the new mattress. Even as comfy as it is, It's going to take a bit of getting used to. I woke up a few times last night and though "aaaaah..." and then rolled over and went back to sleep. The biggest adjustment for me is the height. They had asked us if we wanted low profile box springs and we declined it. It's rather high and while it doesn't bother Jeff, it's a bit of an effort for my 5' 3" stature. To prove my point, Oliver misjudged the height of the bed and almost fell off when he jumped up last night. It was rather funny as he held on for dear life as Cosmo batted him in the nose 'til he let go and dropped to the ground.
Looking forward to many more sleep-filled nights without the twanging of springs into my kidneys.
I met with a realtor team this afternoon at my house in Cleveland to discuss my options and to see what they can do for me. I already like them better than my previous realtor. They took the time to find out what my personal situation is and what I'm hoping to achieve (besides just selling the house). They toured the house and took lots of notes. What they didn't do was give me a price quote on what they thought they could sell it for. No, instead they want to go back and do some homework and more market research and they're hoping to provide me with some options by the end of the week. Let's see what happens. Selling my house without going bankrupt in the process is a top goal for me.
That new mattress set can't come soon enough!!!! My shoulders and neck are killing me today.
I'm about halfway done with my latest project, the Ophelia sleeveless cardigan. Here is what it will eventually look like:
Mine is being knit up with some luxurious alpaca wool that is a rich nutmeg color. Here is what the front closure will look like:
I'll have some pictures of mine soon.
After the 3 weeks of travel for work, this weekend was spent pretty much doing nothing. I had grand designs to be productive in the backyard but it really didn't happen. I did take about 10 minutes to remove the dead weeds from the butterfly garden, but that was about all. My weekend actually spanned 4 days since I took Thursday and Friday off.
Thursday was Jeff's birthday and we took a leisurely trip to Ashland where he got his hair cut and we strolled around campus for a few hours. It was really nice. That evening included a brief visit with some of Jeff's former co-workers at a neighborhood bar and then dinner for the 2 of us at Stir Crazy at Legacy Village. We ended our evening at the Apple Store (aka "Church" in Jeff's world) where he finally upgraded to the new iPhone.
Friday consisted of grocery shopping and trip to Old Navy to pick up a few pairs of capri pants (on sale for $9.99) and a gift card for a graduation party that we're going to on Sunday.
Yesterday was the true lazy day - we never ventured out anywhere, we watched some tennis in the morning, took a nap, watched some Star Trek movies (3 & 4), and did some grillin' (rather tasty, I might add). With how busy things have been at work, I really needed to recharge my batteries. Today will be spent having virtual coffee with my aunt (as usual), watching the men's wimbledon tennis final, heading out to Sandusky for a graduation party, and an evening trip to CP.
