was thrilled to find that my new purple Doctor Marten's ankle boots (brought to me by the postman) are very comfy;

was delighted to have my quote for a 5,000 word translation (brought to me by the internet) on the subject of road building accepted, so I really should be working now!

Well?
Yesterday ...
I was charmed by the film (classic, I think you were picking one true thang, but it's the falsie you should be after!);
I was appalled by the two-day old corpse of a hare on the doorstep;
I was thrilled with my new boots (and panties!?);
but I got the translation job last December and it's long gone now!

So JINX is the WINNAH!

Holy crap... I was just batting clean up... uh, ok.....

1. I drove a cube.
2. I left the orchard empty handed, informed that the apples trees just didn't blossom this year.
3. I saw Johnny Knoxville from Jackass at Outback Steakhouse in Frazer.
4. I walked 6 miles.

the orchard. I heard a similar story at my pottery class this evening. bizarre though. we got the most apples ever on our trees this year. but I don't think you left empty-handed. Well maybe you did, but not empty bellied?

It's possible that Johnny Knoxville would be in the area because that Bam Margera is from around here.

It's possible that Jinx from a cube because Jimmy and Nissan are related.

It's possible that Jinx walked six miles because she regularly does such physical exercise.

I voat that moar is correct

That leaves Johnny Knoxville? I'll take it. Maybe I'll get lucky by batting cleanup just like jinx did!

Yeah, it was Johnny. I've seen him there, but not recently...

The orchard thing was a bummer. Guy claimed its a problem all over - but then I went to walmart where they had 6 or 7 varieties, lots of them, for $1/lb. We're making applesauce for cooking class...

Clod wins it.
