:: The daffodils that we planted last autumn are up now. Known as Gigantic Stars, they have been a rousing disappointment. The bulbs that have managed to bloom are a whopping 8-10″ high. Whether we planted them wrong [ain’t hardly likely] or whether the winter took its toll on these bulbs [could be possible], I don’t know.
All I know is that tall beauties, they are NOT.
:: A few months ago I bought a Clarisonic Mia 2. It’s a rechargeable, face-washing device. Rather cute, actually. I’d read about it and wondered if it was worth the price. Well I gotta tell ‘ya that for me, it has been great. In fact, when I went to the salon for a haircut the woman who has cut my hair for years commented that my skin looked so much clearer.
So there you have, proof positive that this device is worth the cost. 😉
:: I am a lousy ironer. Z-D, on the other hand, is a marvelous ironer. So last night, while watching the final March Madness game, Mr. Man was ironing his pants. While doing so, unbeknownst to him, a stink bug was inside a pant leg and Zen-Den ironed the stink bug– thereby killing it. Mr. Man didn’t squish the bug as much as he flattened it, meaning there was no stink.
The things you learn…
:: Over the weekend we finished watching Torchwood. [Spoilers, Sweetie] The last year of the series, Miracle Day, took place in America and was a darker story– much less Dr. Who-ish. I enjoyed it, if only to see Wayne Knight [Newman from Seinfeld] play a heavy [figuratively] and to find out that Captain Jack Harkness is, indeed, indestructible. But there was lots of violence & blood– and a disturbing, but believable, plot line that did not reflect well on the human race.
I’ll be thinking on this one for a while.
[Hello FTC! I think that you know by now that when I recommend something I have not been given this something by the manufacturer. No, I’m just saying, in my opinion, I liked it. So we’re good FTC, right?]
