Mess to be made

What I learned this week:

1. When your fridge smells like death for no apparent reason, look under the veggie drawers. The apparent reason will be there in the form of congealed chicken juice.

2. When you leave baked beans on the burner on low heat for an hour, the bottom will turn black, but the rest will be okay. Just peel the weird skin off the top.

3. NSO will always be the same: sweat, exhaustion, pickles on sandwiches that have no business even being there, and too much yelling at the Freshman Mentoring meeting to try to drown out the sound of other mentors talking to their students.

Oh, what do you do in the summertime?...

...when you don't have a car?

We have a "creative" date at our apartment, consisting of Jurassic Park, dino-shaped pancakes, and all the dinosaur toys we own.

And a festive Scrabble board that really has nothing to do with the dinosaur date.

Oh, and by the way--that last post by Jordan was not announcing that we're expecting a cute fat baby. When that time comes, you can expect a post from me, the trustworthy one.

I hope they call me on a mission

Hey cats and kittens,

I've advertised this on facebook already, but if that's not your scene, I'll give you the big news: Trevor is almost 19! He's going on a mission in two weeks! He just got his nametag today!

...And there's a blog for him. That's the news. (
