choose your own jersey shore.

everyday i pass a small strip mall with two restaurants. one is called "snooki's bar and grill" and the other "doug bro's." coincidence or ignorance? my jury is still out...

yesterday, i didn't get the memo like everyone else in my building to wear my mav gear (oh champs!). instead i got the memo to wear my only pink shirt the same day the other two ladies in my office wore theirs.

today, i got the other memo to wear jeans and a black shirt the same day as my coworker...

...i would like to conclude that great minds think alike...please keep your commentary to yourself...

i happened upon this woman and her family in the middle of nowhere in namibia. i ended up spending an afternoon with them and laughing harder than i could have ever imagined. they opened their hearts and home to me and only asked in return that i send them pictures so that they could remember that delightful day. in my typical manner, i mailed them a year or so later...and two years later i received an e-mail from her daughter, who is at university...and two additional years later, my heart is still warmed when i get an e-mail from her. it's times like these that i feel indebted to our technological progression.
