Better Start Talking ~ Donell Jones

Because I have been so quiet as of late.....

1. In the long, hot summer afternoons, all I want is a Starbucks Frappuccino. I can not even begin to afford to spend money on Starbucks. When the Starbucks craving strikes, I simply repeat to myself the following phrase: "A gallon of gas. A gallon of gas. A gallon of gas." Since I am perpetually short on gas and gas money, this effectively curbs my Starbucks impulse.

2. In sad news, one of the dogs that I dog sit on a regular basis died. I think I have gone soft in my old age because I totally wept at missing his sweet little doggie face. Repeatedly. For my previous stance on pets, see here.

3. I had my May dinner party. I made pasta (Me? Pasta? Never!), kale chips, and a new batch of experimental brownies.
