When I comes to eating at a restaurant I am basically a creature of habit. Maybe I’m just boring or maybe it’s health issues but when I have to eat out I usually go to the same places and eat the same thing.    In fact, I’m so consistent that I don’t even have to place...

I love watching people.  Seriously, I could do it for hours.  Why?  Because human beings are truly fascinating, and quite frankly the best comedy show around.  (Especially if your mind has a slightly sarcastic bent.)

So last week I told you the story of my wrinkled curtains and all of the work that it took to whip those curtains into shape and make them hang as they should. 

Well, here’s another part of the story:

In my world summer is a great time for catching up on household projects.  This summer one of my projects involved replacing the curtains in my living room.
