Thank you to all the usually anonymous readers who chose to "reveal" themselves in the last post! It was like an unveiling for me - it was way exciting. xD
I guess people might think that as Internet folks get more and more followers/subscribers/watchers whatever, comments start to matter less and maybe what you have to say isn't interesting or whatever your excuses are - but I started putting content online because I love the interaction with all of you and that's still why I do it.
If you think I blog for the ad revenue, you're dreaming. It's like 2 cents a day. You can't even get tootsie rolls for that cheap anymore.
Someone left a comment saying:
"A town near where I live (in Michigan) is apparently the Kohlrabi capital of the world. I'm not actually sure what Kohlrabi is, or if I'm even spelling it correctly :)"
I always just thought it was spelled "Calarabi" (I could be totally wrong) but I will have to check that when I am not thousands of feet up in the air on a plane without an Internet connection. It was one of those things that when I read your comment, I knew exactly what you were talking about because it's a household term with my family, but I've never had any reason to need to write down the name - it's just that white stuff my dad buys and chops up and leaves on the cutting board for the rest of us to munch on. :D
I have not much of significance to write about in this entry, just that
1. I am on an airplane going back home to Seattle
2. The little kid I was sitting near in the airport had bright red hair and was named Atticus and I thought that was amazing
3. "17 Again" with Zac Efron is playing on the plane right now and I am really tempted to watch it, even though I have already seen it. It's making working on my novel or reading "White Teeth" for my study abroad much more difficult.
I get to see Alex again in a few hours and I am excited. We were only apart for 5 days... and then when he goes home to London it's only 2 weeks until I fly there for my Exploration Seminar... I don't know WHAT the crap we're going to do after I go back home at the end of September. :/
Mathew Perry just got sucked through the time vortex so he's 17 again. Screw it, I'm getting my headphones.
Edit: Google tells me it is "kohlrabi". Go figure.
