We don't need no stinking laundry detergent

Heh. I just finished our pack of Dropps this weekend. Now I'll experiment with less detergent and maybe some essential oils for scent. Keeping the Oxi-Clean for stain removal.

Also mixing scentless Dr. Bronner's with baking soda in hope of removing grime from bathtub.

It's been a cheap day: tipped barista ten cents for the "free" hot water in the mug that I brought from home, for the tea I also brought from home. Walked to post office to mail pics of new nephew to my stepmother, Sprint bill ($66.49) and reduced COBRA payment. Splurged on whipping cream and celery -- making beef stock. Whipping cream is popular for cream sauces in my house.

Had a nice little burning of some accumulated papers.

Yesterday we went to the local cinema and paid $3 each for admission to a very entertaining French-language children's film rated 87% on RottenTomatoes.com.

Videos from Credit Card Revolt
a local is producing these and making a revolt statement against credit cards. The funny thing is I saw one video, saw the angle of the sun and figured 'hey, that's my city!' and then was proven right. Sad when sunlight deficiency defines your territory. (note to historychick and baselle -- is this Beacon Hill territory or Central District/Madrona?)

Sitting for extended periods is bad for your health -- okay the headline was "watching TV..." but seriously, the doctor at least twice mentioned sedentary activity. What if you're watching TV while you're on a treadmill? What if you're reading a book and sitting down? I need to get off my butt and move every twenty-thirty minutes, methinks.
