this and that

Friday night Ken and I saw a Lotus Elise in our hometown. The license plate read "UOMERNT", so we figured it was one of the super-rich rental property owners that populate our college town. It immediately made me think of the scene in Pretty Woman, when Richard Gere's character pulls over for Julia Robert's character, and J.R. says to her hooker friend, "That's a Lotus Esprit" and Laura San Giacamo's characters says, "No, that's rent."

This weekend I got no writing done because I repainted the kitchen. I wanted it to look sort of like an italian villa, and I think we pulled it off. I'll post pictures once it's all back in order. Now all of my muscles hurt, as well as my hands and feet. I'm tired. I'm going to shower and lay around and veg for the rest of the day.

Congrats on painting the kitchen! I look forward to the pictures. We repainted our living room recently and it really made a difference. I think the pain is worth it, but I hope you're back to normal soon!

I think that remodeling is always worthwhile in the end. It may be a big pain in the (insert body part here), but improving your environment is a big deal.

However, I'm going to say congrats to laying around on the couch, since, to me, that's a great end in itself.

Take it easy!

I saw a Lotus here once. I also immediately thought of Pretty Woman.
I can't wait to see the new kitchen decor. I wish I could see it in person:(
Hey, how did the chocolate chip cookie contest go?

Yeah, didn't place in the contest. My heart really wasn't into it, though, so I wasn't surprised.
