grocery cart

My guess is, that unless you’re shopping at a fun-filled farmer’s market, your grocery list probably doesn’t elicit cries of “Whoopee, it’s time for food shopping!” Unless, that is, you’re part of Improv Everywhere…

Guerrilla Gardeners are the superheros I’ve been waiting for, and a total superhero kind of club that I can join (for once).

Sometimes when I see pictures of Michelle Obama I want to cry. I have never, ever had even the slightest glimmering of pride when thinking about this nation’s leaders… Until now.
