Debbie is the girl for me

Does it make me a great big nerd that I'm excited because Debbie Travis has a whole line of housewares stuff coming out through Canadian Tire?

Yes. Yes it does. But I'm still painting my bedroom ceiling with one of her colours.

I cut my hair! Well, technically, spook cut my hair. I love having it short. I don't know why I keep deciding I need to grow it out. When I told Meredith I was going to chop it off, she said "Of course you are. I did the same thing. I grew my hair out, and then I thought 'Great. Now I have long hair.'" Yeah, that about sums it up.

In other unrelated news, my jade plant has these icky little bugs that make cottony webs under the leaves and eat through the base of them. Ewww. I have spent way too much time wiping bugs off it with q-tips dipped in rubbing alcohol.

Last but not least, I have discovered a new awesome smoothie: frozen mango chunks, raspberries, and soymilk. Blend. The mango makes it all milkshake-like, except with nutrients. Mmm, nutrients.

It's funny how my own words, coming out of someone else's mouth (or keyboard, as it were) can sound so snarky and smart. I think they must have had an editor.

Those bugs don't like soap. You can buy a soap solution for 'em or you could just make it... I'm sure there's a recipe around here somewhere.

They also don't like ground up hot peppers mixed with a little oil & vinegar. And then you can use the leftovers to baste some salmon that you steam in your dishwasher while you do a load of dishes.

Yeah. I'd like to see Debbie pull off *that* level of multi-tasking ;-P

Oh my kung fu kitten, "debbie" always was the girl for you.

And Meredith, you need to have a blog already.
