Blank screens... Ugh.
Writer's block, anyone?
My desk is overflowing with books, folders, Pokemon cards, an empty box of Oh's and plastic "jewels" that were picked off of a crown by Corinne and are awaiting a gluestick for reapplication.
My house is filled with the sounds of Evan and Corinne running around the circle: kitchen, hallway, living room, and then ZOOM! past me and back into the kitchen again.

It's so incredibly hot out, that a trip to the pool is laughable, though I might be convinced after a few more hours of pleading and whining.

They don't write THAT one in the manuals, now do they?
In order to have something to talk about, I do believe I'll employ an old blogging tactic (from the good ole days, ya know) and ask you, my lovely readers, what questions are burning a hole in your keyboard, just waiting to know about moi??? I know, I know, it's hard to just pick A question, but let's try, shall we?
Gonna sit back and await your brilliant queries while I drink my coffee in my artificially cooled house and fold yet another basket of laundry.
