Random Thoughts

1. Sheridan and I registered at Macy's for our wedding, and I have been SO MAD every time something arrives packed in styrofoam packing peanuts (instead of some sort of ecologically responsible packing material)! And then this weekend we got something in the mail with different-looking peanuts, and a card stating that they have begun to use earth-friendly materials for packing. Apparently these are made of cornstarch and melt under water!! So I dumped the big box of peanuts into my kitchen sink, covered them with water, and VOILA - they melted and went right down the sink. HOW COOL IS THAT??!!! I'm so happy that a major corporation like Macy's has chosen the high road for their packing materials and hope that other companies follow suit.

2. I heard "Going Back to Cali" by LL Cool J this morning and it's been going through my head all day. Man, I remember that song SO vividly from middle school (what is that, 1988?)! How ironic is it that I fell in love with that song in Texas, and now I'm in Cali, and returning to Texas again?? (Oh yeah, I haven't made that announcement yet, but hang tight - it's coming...)

3. I'd like to see Sarah Palin debate Tina Fey. Do you think someone could help me arrange that? Petri - you could probably pull that off...
4. I saw a bluejay today! I haven't seen one of those in years... Not since I moved to the concrete jungles of downtown San Diego and San Jose! It was really pretty and made me happy. I just thought I'd share that.

That's it. Hope everyone is great!

Love, Mer
