Wives Update:

Congratulations to Moos for escaping the multi-floor dungeons of Macy and landing a new job at Riverstone Residential Group, a property management company located in Belltown.

And, in a strange turn of events, Moos has been able to persuade (with the help of a job opportunity) her friend Jenny (henceforth: J.Jo) to move up to Seattle from Texas. Now Moos has no reason to move to Texas, which she has been threatening for months. Thank God J.Jo's making this move. I don't how much longer my increased use of Spanish in the household could distract Moos.

Kudos to Katrine for pushing the limits of hippieness and hitting the halfway point today in her 5-day "cleansing fast." She's been on a strict liquid diet and can only drink water and a potion, which basically looks like cloudy urine. The formula is:

  • Juice of one 1/2 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons of Grade B maple syrup
  • A pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 8 oz of water

Such a diet wouldn't normally lend itself to hippieness, except that it includes honey. Honey is one of the main hippie food groups, which also includes granola, brown rice, organic vegetables, and weed. Yes, Winnie the Pooh's obsession for honey does qualify him as a hippie. And Eeyore is his druglord.

Correction: Katrine tells me the recipe does not include honey. I still think Winnie the Pooh is a hippie regardless.
