8 Things I Did Yesterday

2. Saw the first snow in London as I was sitting some warm cream of broccoli soup. There was a nice aesthetic to it.

7. I listened to Laura Ingraham's podcast "We're as Mad as Hell," and it made me as mad as hell, and I felt like sticking my head out the window and yelling to London, "I'M AS MAD AS HELL, AND I'M NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANYMORE!!"    ...but I didn't want to disturb my roommates. haha.

This is soooo wonderful to know the "real" you! I love the pocket constitution so no one violates your rights...that is a very good idea. I think I might do it as well. Let us see pictures of Halloween in London. We miss you in the in Texas and the rest in AZ and CA!
