There's just something magical about finding something you forgot about, isn't there? Well, most of the time, anyway. Money in a coat you haven't worn for almost a year is fabulous. A potato in the back the pantry? Not so much...
The beginning of the year brought a realization that, to be honest, has been 'realized' by me for a while: I have way too much paper in this house. I set a goal to rid myself of just about as much paper as would make a local move easier, and that translates to...all of it. Okay, that's ridiculous, because I still need post-it notes and books -- but the books are a whole 'nother issue.

While I was searching one particular drawer for paper to purge, I came across treasure: nail polish! Here is a small sample of the awesomeness contained in that drawer!
Any resolutions out there that involve throwing a bunch of stuff out?

What are some of the things you want to learn right now?

Today is a day set aside for splashing friends if they happen to get close enough to your puddle. I sometimes take things literally, so I shake my head when I see 'step in a puddle' as you really can't splash anyone when you step into a puddle. You have to stomp, either with one clown foot or with two feet together, combining the latter with a cute sideways hop. Dudes cannot be cute, so you are left with the clown foot method. Good luck with that...
On another note entirely, avoid this 'funk' that has invaded this nation. I was down for two weeks, and I'm still coughing. I'm getting a great ab workout, however, so there is a bright side.
