I'm in love with this girl

Don't you love it when you find someone who says what you want to say but way better...

"The gentle art of domesticity is the felicitous application of practical skills to the spaces in which we live. It requires a desire to make instead of consume, a triumph of activity over passivity and a return of using our hands and imaginations rather than a reliance on screens and technology. It's part of that wonderful, traditional, often undervalued skill of making our own entertainment."

Other things that make me really happy...

*When I click on spell check and it says, "No misspellings found". Thrills me to pieces.

*The majority of postings on the discusssion board for my class were informed and intelligent. I have come to the conclusion that there is no faster way to find out who the fucking morons are in a room than to bring up immigration. But surprisingly...there were many more people with a brain than there were people without.

*That cartoon down there. My mom sent it to me and it made me laugh a lot. I'm not really sure why...maybe I could relate or something.

*A tiny little beagle puppy relentlessly trying to come home with me. It was so hard not to put him in my car. I can't stop thinking about that damn dog. I need a puppy. Here mom, I'll save you the trouble, "You need a puppy like you need a hole in the head."

One more thing you can save me the trouble of saying, "watch your language young lady".!!

You proclaim "I'm in love with this girl", but you don't tell us who it is? Or am I missing something? My money's on Jane Brockton.

Sorry! It's Jane Brocket! Brilliant author of The Gentle Art of Domesticity.
