The Ski Meet
I am home from my first ever family reunion. "The Ski Meet", they called it, since it was all from the Polish branch of my family tree. I had a great weekend, and met more relatives than I even knew existed! Cousins of my father who he hadn't seen for 30 years. Cousins of my grandfather who none of us had ever met! They were all very nice and friendly. I also had lots of yummy foods, including Italian, Polish, and Cuban. I also got to spend some time talking to my aunts and grandmother, who I love more each time I get together with them. And I got to play with my nephew some more. It was an excellent reunion.

Driving home, I saw a really weird billboard. It read, "America's first recycled water", and it had a picture out an outhouse and a bottle of water. Outhouse Springs, the bottle said. Quite disturbing! I kept figuring it was a joke, looking around for a follow up billboard, but saw nothing that explained it. Here is some information I found about this freakish advertisement!

I installed glass shelves in my bathroom about a year ago, and it's taken me until now to accidentally cut myself on one. (ouch) I suppose that's not too bad of an average.

Guess you had a good weekend.

Don't think the Outhouse Springs has quite the right image for bottled water - just today, I found out that the City of Austin's water utility is selling bottled Austin tap water.

Hope you didn't bleed too much.

Bottled austin tap water..that's weird. The Outhouse Springs billboard was disturbingly stomach-turning.

Not too much last night, in fact it bled more this morning when it reopened in the shower, strangely enough.
