Yesterday I indulged in some delightful time on my computer. I’m on my computer all the freakin’ time, and a lot of times I want nothing more than to NOT be on my computer.

How do you eat your trail mix? I have a tendency to pick everything apart and eat like things together. But maybe there’s something to be said for eating an whole handful all at once.

The most expensive address stamp I’ll ever own!
