it's like a post where i don't have to write anything!

"Fidelity": Don't Divorce... from Courage Campaign on Vimeo.

i know that not many people visit, but if you haven't taken a look at this yet, i'd recommend it. lexi and i cried b/c that's what we do.

you can learn more and sign a petition here.

and since i'm not prone to really talk about these sorts of things, lest i show that i'm not really very informed, even when i do have an opinion on things, that's all i'm going to say about that.

one for the road

so i am supposed to be hopping in a cab in less than 7 hours to head to the airport. i still have to do some research and modify a Response to Office Action and get dave a better answer and finish packing, and of course, i'm writing a blog entry.

so my uncle is going to be with us in hawaii, and i am looking forward to having someone to throw a ball around with. no, i'm not particularly active, but throwing a football on a beach is always a good time. til my arm gets tired and i wimp out. but my silly football was a bit deflated, so i went an bought a ball pump today. but when i got home, i couldn't get it to inflate the ball! it really didn't seem to be doing any good. of course, the device is so easy to use that there isn't an instruction manual to tell me what i'm doing wrong. but i found this, which is something. anyways, in the end, i think i figured it out (you have to put the needle in so far that the ball starts to deflate? but once it deflated halfway, i could totally tell that it was inflating. tho i could never get it as full as i wanted it to be, so maybe that is as full as it gets and i bought the pump for nothing.) except in the end,i have decided to deflate the ball for packing and take the empty ball and the pump with me. i'm not actually sure this is a better idea or that it even packs any better, but at this point, i'm going with it. maybe my dad or uncle can at least teach me how to use a ball pump! so that would be something.

anyways, i'm really excited about taking a real vacation! after having made the mistake of trying a few of my summer clothes on, i'm thinking i might wish it wasn't a beach vacation. oh well, i'm too excited to care much, i think!

huzzah for hawaii!!

ok, maybe i'll share one more

b/c it made me laugh aloud. i still like to see what people used to get here, tho it is certainly way fewer people than it used to be, which is fair b/c i don't ever post anymore and i'm really not delightfully entertaining anymore. recently i actually thought about creating new posts that were really just links to old posts. i thought this would keep the joy alive. i mean, who reads old blog posts, but if they were NEW blog posts, linking to old blog posts....

anyways. search terms used to find me today: what is doc review

loves it. much like i feel about doc review, actually.

nothing really

(1) yesterday, i found a penny sitting on the metro turnstile thing as i walked out. i didn't even have to bend over to get it! awesome. (and yes, heads up.)

(2) it turns out that i DO have two pairs of winter pants, just as i had initially thought. it's just that the pair i thought was the second pair wasn't winter pants, and there was another pair that i have just completely not noticed all winter, hanging in my closet. on the hanger right next to the pair i wear all the time. oh well.

(3) i told you it wasn't anything, but they seemed like valid followups to recent posts. you know, in case people are reading. hm.
