1. I have a bunch of colleagues who enjoy discussing current events amongst themselves during the work day. Obviously they had much to say about the royal birth, some of which was insightful, most of which was tragically inaccurate, but provided for quality entertainment on my Monday afternoon. The highlight of the discussion, however, was easily when one of my colleagues said, “So the baby was about eight pounds, right? I wonder how much that is in dollars.”
Bahahahahahahahahahahaha. Best joke ever.
2. About six weeks ago, I was in Trader Joe’s and saw that they sold potted basil plants for the low low price of $3.99. On the occasions when I have time to cook, I tend to cook Italian-ish dishes, and a lot of the recipes I use call for fresh basil. Because buying fresh basil sucks (there’s always way too much in the package, and I’ve never been able to use it all before it goes bad), I figured this fresh basil plant was a worthwhile investment. I’m concerned, however, that my basil plant is on its last legs.
This is an old picture because I’m
lazy super pressed for time this week, but on Tuesday when I got home the plant was such a wilty disaster that I was sure I had lost it. I gave it a good drink and it seems to have revived a little bit, but man, I am struggling with this guy. I don’t know what I’m doing wrong! I’m following all the instructions on the handy dandy little card with care guidelines that came with it, but it’s just not working out. Sigh. I had so much confidence, too, after the $3 plants I bought at Home Depot in September have continued to grow and, dare I say it, even thrive under my care. Basil is a different beast, it seems.
3. And that’s it for me, kiddos! I’m headed back to my one true love, summer camp, next week (wooooo!) and obviously will not have the same sort of computer access as I have when I’m doing my big girl chained-to-a-desk job. I have a couple posts that will go up, but that’ll be it. I’m afraid I’ll be far too busy making friendship bracelets, singing nonsensical songs about moose, Princess Pat and green grass growing all around all around, and just in general acting like a child to spend much time in Blogland. I shall return in August with camp stories galore and a recap of my Saturday at LOLLA (a;lsdkfjas;ldfkjaslakdsffjasd so excited so excited so excited)! Have a good week + change!
Any advice for my struggling basil plant?
What’s your favorite summer job? Camp, obviously, though I did really enjoy this wonderful cafe I worked at the summer after my freshman year in college.
