Three things!

1. "Buy one get one" signs and ads really get on my nerves, and perhaps even more so when it's "BOGO" as if it's supposed to be obvious what that means. "Buy one get one" is just the procedure of a normal trade transaction, not something to advertise. "Buy one get one free" is what you mean, shops, or I'd also accept "buy one get two". There's also the advantage that if you use the sense-making phrase "buy one get one free", as they do in Australia, then your annoying abbreviation becomes, instead, amusing.

2. Apparently one of the candidates for the office of Sheriff here is named Rambosk. If I was voting he'd get my vote purely on the grounds of having an awesome Sheriff name. We talked about it and determined that the only names that would be more electable would be Sheriff Diehard or Sheriff Notickets. (Also we determined that neither of us know what the role of Sheriff entails or why it's a role that's elected.)

3. I forget what the third thing was. Two things! And this! [16:44] [2 comments]

I got married.


There was a cake.


Also there was a sunset.


And some feet.


The End. [09:15] [3 comments]
