Flowers, Watermelons, and Skype

Flowers from my garden! The orange flower is a Mexican sunflower — it’s super tall. Which probably means I shouldn’t have planted it in the front part of the garden. But it’s happy. So happy it’s blooming.

My watermelon-eating skills were recently compared to those of a polar bear. At first, one might think this is insulting. However, after watching an online video of a polar bear eating a watermelon, the comparison is freakishly accurate. The opposable thumbs are really the only difference. Me and polar bears — we love watermelons.

Also — a little baby watermelon is growing in my back yard! It’s so cute! I just hope a polar bear doesn’t bust into my back yard and eat it. That would be unfortunate.

I’ve become a BIG fan of Skype. For some reason, I never felt the need to Skype until Carolyn moved to El Salvador. We’ve Skype’d twice now. As an added bonus, I believe Skype will help me have better posture — apparently, my chin dips below Carolyn’s computer menu bar when I slouch. I don’t want her to see a chinless Laura. I’m much better looking with a chin.

Hmmm…I wonder if chinless is a valid Scrabble word? Meredith?

    It appears to be! You’ll like the definitions:
    1adj – Having a receding chin
    2adj – Lacking a chin
    ALSO, I Googled to find this out since I don’t have access at the moment to my handy OSPD IV, and you should be pleased to know that if you Google “chinless valid Scrabble word” your blog entry is the 4th or 5th item to appear! You’re famous! (Or, at least famous to those Googling that particular phrase).

    Would you please explain why there is an ‘ in skype’d? It seems as if it would be simple past tense, but maybe I’m missing something.

    That’s hilarious that your mom questioned that…because I did, too! 🙂 However, I’ll attest to the fabulous of Skyping…and your chinlessness (probably not valid)! 🙂
