    But without tupperware, where would I store the hearts of my enemies? Errr, I mean how would I bring my yoghurt to work?

    On other topics, Matt, how about those Sens? (Insert facepalm emoji here)

    Fun Fact: My late Mom paid for our trip to Florida in 1979 by selling Tupperware. The trade off was we had to visit Tupperware head office during the trip. (There are pics.)

    Painful on every level, and we have to trust them to sign or trade Karl. New owner needed, stat!

    Didn't happen without the pics as proof! And did you know a human head will fit in a TW lettuce keeper?

    I've been trying to get used to my new camera. I'm actually pleased with the relative difficulty of it compared to using a smartphone, so it's keeping my interest piqued as I learn how to use it. Here's the thing though. I have no idea what to photograph.

    I figured since I live near a huge nature trail, it should be an easy thing to head out there and find plenty of scenery and wildlife. Not so much. It turns out my beloved trail is actually quite boring. I did have a chance encounter with a deer, but by the time I got the camera ready and focused, it had made it's way underneath some trees. I still tried to zoom in and capture it, but it didn't really work out. After further review, the deer wasn't even looking my way so I essentially photographed the back of it's head.

    Critters know when you pull out a camera, I swear.

    But nice trees!

    I'm really trying to resist commenting on the weather, buuuuut...it feels like 109F with the humidity in Ottawa right now, and has been blazing hot for days. The heat wave breaks tonight, and I'm hoping for a classic thunderstorm to finish it off. The lawn died a few days ago, and everything is bone dry.

    No progress on the move, just a lot of small things getting done around the house. New lighting fixtures went in last week.

    I'm also back on Red Bull, and it's good.

    I’m further south and it still feels like an arm pit here. So humid you feel like you are trying to breath underwater. Good luck attracting some rain!

    We didn’t get the storm like we were supposed to. The humidity broke, and it was delightfully cool today, but it looks like we’ll have to wait a few more days for rain. My yard is like straw.

    Plus, the heat is coming back this weekend. As a winter-hater, I won’t over complain. Still, it just underscores how great spring and fall are up here.

    So I've had my eye on a few activity trackers and sports watches. Since today is Prime Day, I decided to wait to see if any went on sale. Sure enough, there was a nice deal on the Garmin Vivosport watch. So I, casually mind you. added it and a few other items to my cart after 3pm and checked out with no problem whatsoever. Yet, apparently, I may be one of the few people who actually got an order through as Amazon's site has apparently crashed.

    This gives me a few thoughts. First, how the heck does Amazon not have servers to handle one of their busiest days? Second, why would this cause a panic as I'm seeing on Twitter right now? If I didn't get my purchase done, I'd just wait for later. Or, forget the damn thing. It's like those Black Friday brawl videos. No sale is worth that, or am I missing something?

    You and your damned common sense! You know that’s not how this works. That’s not how any of this commercialization thing works!! :D

    I'm a huge fan of the Instant Pot, but I find it hard to believe anyone urgently needs one RIGHT NOW.

    Hey, when you need your consumer dopamine hit, you need your hit. Who wants to wait hours in anxiety and low level depression before washing it all away with sweet satis
    faction of a dollar well spent?

    Amazon Prime Day #2: I ordered a DNA test. I'm not anticipating any surprise results, but I guess you never know. It will take 6-8 weeks to get the results once I send back the kit.

    I'm hoping there some Viking in there somewhere.

    The really nice thing is that Dims has the banner we can click and that way we can support Dims and get stuff without leaving the couch or putting on pants.

    I have had my Amazon account since 1998 when they only sold books. I’ve done tons of shopping in my enderwear on the couch, epic amounts.
