six short stories and a note about toilet paper

* A few weeks ago I received my Cara Box for the month of April. The directions said to blog about it soon after I got it, but I obviously failed at that rule because it is now the middle of May. I sent to Lindsay and received from Angel. Every time I sent her an email I had to triple-check that I spelled her name properly. I have a terrible habit of writing "angle" when I mean "angel". The theme was Earth Day and she sent me all this. Jenn and Co. have similar water bottles so now I'm in with the cool kids. 
* Yesterday I lost Hungry, Hungry, Hippos to a two year old. Multiple times. It was a humbling experience, but I managed to redeem myself four times.
* I've seen a few dolla bills in my day, but it never occurred to me to do this:
* Aidan and his best friend the chicken watching the bathroom redecorating show. I offered to turn on a more child appropriate show, but he (Aidan, not the chicken) was really into new ways of tiling a shower. 
* "She's taking pictures of me again. Doesn't this woman have anything else to do with her life?"
* Our truck died so Christopher spent a portion of the day trying to jumpstart it. He called me over to help look for the engine block which, given my limited car knowledge, was a bit risky. He doesn't seem to be that much more gifted in the car knowledge area because when I asked him what the engine block looks like, he said "I'm not sure."
Needless to say, we never did get the truck working.

*The people of Venezuela are experiencing a toilet paper shortage. I'm very sympathetic to their plight, but it strikes me as SO FUNNY.

I think you should be honored that Christopher asked you to locate the engine block! He must hold your car knowledge in high esteem!!! Although I can sympathize with you guys not being able to get it working. Sometimes a mechanic is the only person for the job! :)

Kinetic watches are considered as great investment and energy-saving gadgets, but
the solar-powered models can easily compete with them.
The hues range from subtle white or black to vibrant shades of red, orange, and
yellow. Some economical brands include Invicta watch and
Orient watch, and then the price can reach into the very expensive range depending on the embellishments or the prestige of a specific brand.

I am horrified for the people of Venezuela!!! I have this weird ocd with toilet paper in that I feel like we need to have 98750982054987 rolls so that we don't run out, which would be terrible!!
