One of my favorite people has started her own diaryland journal: Intemperance. If ever there was someone perfect for journal writing, it’s she. She’s just getting started, but you can expect some good things here.

Honeycomb’s big, yeah yeah yeah. It’s not small, no no no! That’s a link to a page full of 70s kids TV stuff.

Several stores around here have already installed cup holders on the shopping carts. Cup holders!
