You Were Born into the Earth Element
You are a responsible person who values the joys of working hard.
You are practical, stable, and (obviously) down to earth.

You have to watch out for boredom. Your life needs more romance, adventure, friendship, and fun.
You are a solid friend and an ideal partner. You are honest, nurturing, and loyal.

too early for this

the local convenience store has a fall-spiced cookie out already (in addition to pumpkin-shaped candies they've ad for a week or so.) it's not even september!

it used to be that stuff was closer to the actual season it's supposed to be in. back to school stuff was at the end of july, now it's right after the fourth of july stuff is moved out. halloween-themed things didn't start showing up until at least mid-september. thanksgiving things came out right after halloween & christmas followed right after turkey day. now those three holidays are combined into hallow-thanks-mas. bleh!

and can we all agree that the pumpkin spice stuff for fall & peppermint stuff in winter is just foo much?

i want sandwiches

my brother & i make these sandwiches every so often that are almost dagwood-like. with 3 or 4 kinds of meat, almost that many kinds of cheese, with some sort of condiment. on better than supermarket bread (some times from panera bread) & doritos to not only to have along with them, but also to put on the sandwich and crush it slightly to break up the chips.

we haven't done this in a while. we keep meaning to, but it always falls through.
