I hate those baits and switches, I tell you what! That stuff just really ticks me off!
But, I know that you'll find an even more awesome place!
DH and I decided to go to the US . . . in 2014! We will be hitting SD because I have friends/family there. We want to go in October and have an "american halloween" for DS. With my cousin who has a son just younger than DS, and they are big into halloween, so I'm sure it would be awesome.
Anyway, it's going to be a combination work-holiday, so you better start taking yoga so that you can come to my workshop AND then we can go to the SD zoo or something like that because DS will want to do something awesome. And thankfully, your dog isn't so tall that he would be scared of him (since most big dogs are as tall as DS, those are the ones he's nervous about. I would be too if I saw a dog as big as me!).
Pencil it into your calendar.
It would be great to see you IRL when you get to SD. Let me know as dates firm up.
Paleobird, sorry to hear about the apartment. So stupid to not consider your dog a working dog and the whole plug in thing is ludicrous also.
I thought of you this morning because, while not really aiming to do so, I was so carnivorous yesterday that I only ate about five grams of carbs. LOL I thought, "Paleobird would approve." I will however cook up some turnip greens today to compensate. I've finally decided to get with the whole coconut oil thing and it's not terrible as I remembered. Maybe the one I tried years ago was weird, but the one I got from Vitacost is lovely - nothing repulsive about it at all. I've used it to grease muffin tins for Brazilian cheese bread, and to fry eggs and it didn't impart any nasty taste to either.
Anyway, sometimes when things go south like the apartment, the next one you find is so much better that you breathe a sigh of relief and flip the bird to the original one.

In other news............I had SEX! Yay!
I met this wonderful man about a year ago when I took my cruise to the Caribbean. He was the piano player/singer in the piano bar. Now the cruise lines have very strict no fooling around with the customers or we dump you off at the next port and you buy your own plane ticket home policy. So, things got as far as a couple of steamy kisses back then but we stopped ourselves. Actually I would have gone for it but in retrospect that would not have been fair of me since he was the one with something to lose.
Anyway, we have kept in touch via email and now he is going to be home ported out of San Diego for a while doing the Hawaii, Mexico and Alaska runs. Holland America has a policy where, if you register it up front, you can take a "Friend On Board" for a free cruise if you are an employee who rates a private stateroom which musicians do. So, as soon as I get my real estate stuff settled, I may be doing some cruising. This time we just had one night, Friday night, before he shipped out.
Sigh. Somehow when you are feeling this good, all that stuff about real estate and pinheaded leasing agents just doesn't seem all that important.
Wait...MCT causes your body temperature to go up? I may have to investigate this some more....
Yay for getting laid!
PB are you sure the rise in body temp was the MCT?
I want to have some "new romance" sex. Too bad I have a long term husband. I was joking with one of my flirtations that I was trying to get my husband to let me have boyfriends on the side. He looked very interested.
Alas, I will behave myself and live vicariously through other single ladies.
Oh my, a friend with benefits - and WHAT benefits indeed! YAY!!
I have the simplest tastes. I am always satisfied with the best.
