Fact: People are Gross. And These B&B Owners Have the Evidence to Prove It  (For the love of God man, it's a wonder people go into the B&B industry at all.  Guests...stop being PIGS and use some common sense!  You wouldn't want someone coming into your house and doing all of this stuff!)

This Woman Dunked An Egg Beater In Lava And Got Arrested  (Okay for real?  Now I can't say much because we've seen lava both in and out of the national park but they have been very clear that they will arrest for tomfoolery.  I guess it took these people to set the example.)

  1. You took a very nice pic of those flowers. I am glad you like them. You deserve them baby!

  2. <Because I need to share it with the world, it's a great video!

    I'm heading to VT with my boyfriend. He's working up there this weekend so I get to see a wind farm up close and personal then hang out and read while he works.

    1. Dude, I almost pee'd myself. That's hilarious!

      Have fun in Vermont! If you're near Montpelier, go to Bragg Sugar Farm. Get a maple creamee, thank me later. ;-)

    2. Not near Montp.
      I went to school near Montp and never went to Bragg Sugar Farm. Disadvantage of not having a car, many jobs, and being an engineering major haha

      ilovermont <it's an actual bumper sticker

  3. As far as the grossness of B&B guests, I can relate. I cleaned hotel rooms to earn money to return to college one summer. WORST JOB EVER!!! I cannot believe some of the things I encountered that summer and imagine it is worse in the larger cities. I always try to be very kind to the cleaning staff wherever I stay as I really feel for them. People are disgusting sometimes.

    1. I can only imagine. On second thought, I don't want to. When we leave a rental, it looks just as good (if not better) than when we arrived.

  4. This weekend is a meeting tomorrow morning, then a trip to one of the doggie places in town (an awesome place) that is doing a Christmas open house, so maybe we can pick something up for the pooches. I'm doing laundry now so I'll only have a load to do over the weekend. A few more errands, then lots of football.
