1. The story of Moses the camel being rescued from a sinkhole by Oregon firefighters makes me happy. And it reinforces my desire to date a firefighter–brave, strong, able to cook, and kind to animals to boot? Sign me up!

2. I think “curate” is the new “to gift” that’s going to drive me bonkers. People: You don’t “curate” a book or a blog. You write it, edit it, compile it, or collect it.

3. I’m finally going to the fair this weekend. I had planned to go last weekend but got hit with whatever cold is going around. My brother already gave me the report on my entries, but it will still be nice to go see the goats and the horses.
