We are using our "ask the audience" lifeline

St. Joseph has arrived, in all of his nude-colored plastic glory. Included with the statue is a card explaining the history of this tradition as well as some hints as to where to bury it. Here's what it tells us.

Some common burial positions are:

Upside down
Right side up
In the rear yard
In the front yard
Simply place on the property
Facing the house
Facing away from the house
3 ' from the rear of the house
Exactly 12" deep

Well. That was helpful.

Please help us decide where to place St. Joseph!
* The most popular answer will determine where he will be buried, so this is serious business.

My relationship with the Olympics

It's a love/hate thing.

I love them so much that I have been staying up WAY past my bedtime for the past four nights. And there's no end in sight. That's where the hate comes in. I want to sleep... but I can't.

As long as people are still flinging their bodies around on pommel horses and splashing around in pools, I guess I'll just have to be tired.

Dear St. Joseph

Folklore says that if you bury a statue of St. Joseph upside down in your front yard, there will soon be offers on your home.

That's why this kit should be arriving on our doorstep within a few days:

I confess, I know very little about the saints. Particularly St. Joseph. And I feel guilty for only trying to make friends with him when I need something. But, if he's willing to help...

Although, if someone bought me for $2.99 and trapped me underground (upside down, nonetheless!), I'm not sure how willing I'd be to help them.

Crazy weather on Lake Superior (Note: This picture is not altered AT ALL. This is exactly how the lighting looked at that moment. It was unlike anything I'd ever seen!)

Hmm, something's different....

So, what do you think?

I like it. And I think Jonathan will be really proud of me for using html code and stuff. =)
