Actual conversation in the elevator last week:

(me and another girl are in the elevator, I hear a someone running to try to catch it)
Me: (holding elevator door) Good morning
Other Person: Wow, you must be new to the building.
Me: How did you know?
O.P.: No one ever holds the elevator.
Me: Oh..
O.P.: (looking at what I have in my hand) Wow, those are some really big chili peppers you have.
Me: Yes.
O.P. They are nice.
Me: Thank you.

(third person in the elevator never even looks up)

I am not sure what this means, but it has to mean something.

Be the Match

The last few weeks have brought more than their fair share of tragedy for my loved ones.
Sometimes, there is not one thing we can do about it.
But sometimes, there is.
And as I know more and more people personally who are affected by serious illness, the more strongly I feel that I need to do everything I can.

Being put on the bone marrow donation registry has been on my 'bucket list' for a long time.
This morning I came across this site that explains how to sign up for the registry.
They send you a packet, you swab the inside of your mouth and send it back.. and then they contact you if there is someone who is a match for your bone marrow is in immediate need.
There is about a $100 donation that is associated with it so that they can cover the costs of the search for a match etc.

I'm going to do it.
Anyone else want to sign up with me?

How to Pack a Carry-on

I'm all about this.  
I kind of pride myself in being able to cram a month's worth of stuff into a bag not much bigger than my mom's purse. ;)

Check it out!
