Someone asked a few days ago – or maybe weeks, I don’t remember – why it is that I love my Healthy Back Bag so much. Let me tell you why I love it so much. This is why:
It has so many pockets on the inside and the outside of the bag that I can fit anything I could ever want to fit, in this bag. And it doesn’t seem crowded at all – plus, it’s big enough (bigger than it looks, really) that if I’m running errands I can fit a hardcover book and a liter of water in there with very little struggle. And I never have problems finding anything, because everything has it’s place. The cell phone and my keys go in the outside pocket, the gum and tampons go in the zip pocket with the flap, the sunglasses go in the pocket along the “spine” of the bag, and everything else has a pocket inside the bag where it belongs, except for my wallet, which sits in the middle. Not to mention that the strap is adjustable, and it doesn’t slip down my arm very often. The one I use while I’m at home is a size small, but I also have a size regular for traveling – I can carry my medication, my glasses and a contact case, and several books in it with no trouble at all. If you’re looking for the perfect bag, this might be the one for you. (Then again, it might not. I’m not guaranteeing you’ll love it as much as I do!)

Last night I made a chicken and broccoli with garlic sauce for dinner. It was a new recipe, one I’d never made before, and to say it was a resounding flop would be understating it. I hated it, the spud hated it, and Fred hated it. It was unanimous. So after dinner Fred and I were laying on the bed talking, and he said “Well, you know, I just don’t like thyme all that much.” “You like thyme on your crack,” I pointed out, and immediately snickered. Fred tried to ignore my adolescent humor, but couldn’t withstand the smirking and laughing for long. At the exact same moment, we burst into song. “Thy-y-y-yme is my crack! Yes it is!” we sang. If I were ever to doubt that he’s the perfect match for me (which I don’t), it’s times like that when I realize it anew. We’re such dorks.
We were watching the Jack Bauer Power Hour Monday night, and I noticed that Chloe’s boy toy, Spenser (that’s him on the lower right), looks an awful lot like he could be a Menendez brother. I’m not sure which Menendez brother is which, but I think it’s Erik with the curly hair? (Okay, I went and looked. It’s Erik I’m thinking of) Anyway, I think Spenser looks like he could be related. Chloe better watch her back.

Fred took a bunch of really good pictures of Sugarbutt and Tom Cullen the other night. The ones I like the most are below, but there are a ton more over at Flickr you might want to check out.
“Bob! BOB! BOOOOOOOOOOB! Me and Tommy are getting cozy and we’d like some ‘nip! We know your whole rehab thing fell through, so come bring us a snort, would ya? Bring the good stuff.” Oh, how the brudders love each other. Best. Picture. Ever.
