The Rachel haircut, also called the Rachel Shag or just The Rachel, is a bouncy, square layered hairstyle introduced by Jennifer Aniston in season 1 of the hit American sitcom Friends (1994) and named after her character, Rachel Green. Many women at the time cut their hair in this style.

friday the 13th, this old pickup truck with vintage coke cooler was parked in front of our house. i took this photo. then the tow truck came and hauled it away. it would look great out in front of our barn!
i am having a blast trying to figure out how to take decent pics with my new (used) canon EOS digital rebel 300 d camera. i bought it from chris. it's a few years old and a pretty difficult to use camera. frustrating at times. but he sold it for a very decent price, and i am enjoying the challenge of a new camera. expect lots of dan & dogs pics as i experiment!

i resolve to stop drinking bottled water. as of today i am going 100% tap water. i got a nice BPA free bottle (and one for the husband) and i'm gonna use it!
the fruit next to the bottle is a "pluot", a combination of a plum and apricot.
why am i doing this? because i spend too much money on bottled water. it's usually just tap water anyways. i end up with tons of those bottles in my car at the end of a week. and those bottles are bad for the environment. here's a review of a new documentary about the scam that is bottled water.
i'm also vowing to keep taking the dogs to the park as often as possible. i need the exercise and they do too. plus it's fun watching gilly jump into the water and roll in the mud. and griffin LOVES going for rides. now if i could just drag dan along... maybe when it's not 90 degrees out.
speaking of that.... this summer can bite me. it's the hottest on record and i'm so sick of the 90 degree days and insane humidity.
product (unpaid) endorsement: L'Oreal Paris -Colorist Secrets Shine Gloss. it's a friggin' miracle for my hair! it doesn't get great reviews online, but i have dumb hair so maybe it only works for me...

Mayor McCheese was an enormous cheeseburger who appeared from 1971–1985, he has a burger for a head, and sports a top hat, a diplomat's sash, and a pair of pince-nez spectacles. He is portrayed as a giggly, bumbling, somewhat incompetent mayor.
i am now officially the mayor of 2 different McDonald's on foursquare. i know i should be proud of this, but screw it, i'm the damned mayor!!! i'm also mayor of starbucks, a mexican restaurant and the park where i walk the dogs. i need to start dressing like mayor mccheese. i already have the big head, i just need the awesome outfit and sash. i think we already have a pince-nez at home...
