Recycling effort I can get behind

The new Harry Potter book is going green. I think recycling efforts are great and that everyone should do what they can, especially if there is a program offered where you live. If there’s not and you can save some things up and transport them every once in a while to a place where you […]

The Weekend in Review

Yes, dear Reader, because there’s only one of you…

Mr. Mouse will be heading to the big city of St. Louis for an internship this summer, provided all other minutiae of life decisions works out the way we want it to. He studied really hard for his drug test (ha ha) and background checks are already […]

Mr. Mouse’s Summer House

Well, by all accounts it looks like Mr. Mouse will be living in St. Louis this summer. It’s kind of a relief to think that that is all decided. I really don’t mind that he gets the opportunity–and if he’s only about 3 hours away, it would be a lot better than across the country. […]

Stupid People

Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I’m not sure about the former-Einstein—The only kind of person I don’t like is the one who is intentionally stupid. The kind that knows better but does irresponsible or flat-out mean things anyway. This also includes “girls” who still act like they are 13 […]
