the week:
Did you hear about these Asian tiger striped mosquitos in Pitsburgh?! Yeech. I made it out of Costa Rica without getting eaten alive, and now I have to worry about these buggers at home.

Meanwhile, as I walked to work the other day, I felt something biting the back of my knee FROM UNDERNEATH MY PANTS. I had to shake out my pant leg once I arrived, and some bastard bit me, like, 8 times. My luck, it seems, is the worst. Or I need to find another place to store my work pants.

Side note about bugs: How the hell do you get rid of moths? We have a problem in this house. I have cedar bags, chips and blocks in every closet, shelf and drawer, but I’m still finding them everywhere.

And now I present you, LARGEST ZUCCHINI EVER:

Say hello to my little friend!

That came from our garden. So proud.

weekend:
Date night with the boyfriend — seeing Defending the Caveman, and having dinner downtown at place-to-be-determined. I tell you what, I’m determined to just eat my way around cheese plates this evening.

And then I have brunch plans at Kaya with a friend visiting from Ohio.

seven things, seven days:
1. Our fireplace is just about done! Pics coming soon.
2. But now our roof is leaking again… SIGH.
3. What is it about a mani-pedi combo that makes you feel SO GOOD?
4. Also, how the heck did that only cost me $40?! I’m definitely doing that again next month.
5. I’m seriously applying to 10 open job postings on my days off. I’m motivated to find work, but not having much luck.
