Growing

Things are growing slowly but surely. Below, you can see the failed Jaywalker sock, and the crosswalker that it will soon become. I liked the look of the Jaywalker, but the darn thing would not go over my heel. Sorry dude. You're about to be ripped.

This is the first year I'm going to grow my own vegetables. I'm not sure how well this will work, with all the 100 degree temperatures and scorching sunshine and whatnot, but at least I know this Jalapeno plant will survive. This picture is totally misleading, since this pepper is only 1" long. But at least it's not dead.

In other news, I've recently started a second job. It's not really a "job," but just an opportunity for freelance editing. Unfortunately for you all, I signed a confidentiality agreement, so I can't post any horrendous writing here for us all to laugh at. It really is a pity, since I've definitely gotten my share of entertainment at other people's expense. Just know that if you submit your "book" that was based on "your own experiences," your editor will incessantly mock you to family, friends, and co-workers.

For all you readers out there, did you know that Anne Perry is a murderer? Very interesting.

I'm so glad you posted a picture of the two socks next to each other like that-- so neat to see the comparison. I hope the new one works out better you, because it's looking great!

Ugh. I had the same Jaywalker problem - I ripped that sucker three times before giving up! Glad you settled on an alternative rather than driving yourself nuts like I did :)

Freelance editing, huh? Color me jealous! In my rosy pre-college dreams I wanted to be an editor when I grew up...

Thanks for stopping by my blog, thought I'd check yours out too! Wow I did not know that Anne Perry was a murderer and such an infamous one at that, thanks for the info! I haven't read Howards End yet but am currently reading A Room With a View - I love Forster!
