here, there, and everywhere (but mostly everywhere)

1. This week I saw three Amish buggies which is three more than I'd see in a month at home. I saw fifteen deer which is fourteen more than I'd see in a month back home. I saw three men in some sort of hunting attire walking down the road with guns over their shoulders. That's three more hunters with guns than I'd see in five years back home.

Toto, we are no longer in Kansas. 

2. I just finished 
transferring all 283 pictures on my camera to my computer. I needed to clear the space so I'd have room to take more pictures of important things such as pizza and my impressive collection of paint chips. I came across this picture and it took me a minute to remember why I felt this house was so important it needed to be documented forever. Then I remembered. It's the home of Jon and Kate Plus 8. 
During my visit to Laura's, we decided to pop by the Gosslin home to say hello. We hopped into Old Blue and off we drove. And drove. And drove. They really do live way out in the middle of nowhere, but I assume that's their goal. They were probably trying to avoid a situation wherein two girls s-l-o-w-l-y drive by taking pictures of their house and being all "oh look! There's their dog!"

In other words, they were trying to avoid us.

3. It was with great sadness that I learned of the retirement of my very dear friend and most favorite baseball player EVER, Mr. Jason Varitek. 

I will continue to wear my #33 shirts with pride. And a few tears. And I shall name my second son Jason in his honor. The father of my future children does not agree with that decision, but he'll come around. 
I am probably the only person in the entire state of New York to feel such sadness over his announcement.

4.  I'm beginning to realize that I have many "very dear and good friends" whom I'm never actually met. The list includes such little-known people as George and Barbara Bush, Channing Tatum, Jason Varitek, and Carrie Underwood. I choose to believe it's only a matter of time until they embrace our friendship and invite me over for Christmas dinner.

When you and Channing Tatum hang out next time, would you remind him that I like Riesling and Reeses? He got confused last time and just brought me Reeses pieces, which are clearly far inferior to the previously mentioned combination. I guess his ridiculously good looks are fogging up even his own good judgement these days..
