spring?



















okay, so it's still three or four days away, but i really don't appreciate more of this sno-cone precipitation, a lot of it. we shoveled and scraped, and several ambulances sped past our house, no doubt rushing the many heart attack victims off to the hospital. i had a sudden epiphany, there in the driveway: people who don't ski have no business living in maine.

m has the best mottos for topeka, kansas -- including "topeka: quit poking fun." the others all have bad words in them.

bean wants to produce a line of t-shirts for her school with her collected mottos on them (actual quotes from actual students).
