So some changes have been made to Nested, as you might have noticed! We now have our own domain name! (www.thenestedblog.com) But don’t worry – the old domain name will still get you there. I’ve also updated my comment section so that you’ll no longer have to deal with that annoying CAPTCHA thing or any other word verification again. Unless I start getting trolled or spammed. Then all bets are off.
We’re also working on a bit of a face lift that will hopefully be all ready to go shortly – so get ready for that! And I will be posting my first food blog post today over at Bourbon – Neat – and Baking on the Rocks. Fun times for all. That blog will be almost entirely about some aspect of food and will rarely if ever contain references to my uterus. …..We hope. (I’ll post the link tomorrow!)
It has been raining for the last 7 days now here, with the temperature steadily dropping. It was 70 degrees on Saturday. It was 26 degrees this morning, with a high of 30. Weather, you’re drunk.
And don’t even get started, northerners, northeasterners, and Midwesterners. I spent my childhood in the Midwest – I know what cold is like. (Note: For the record, this is the only thing standing in my way of being able to call myself a true Southerner – I’m not a weenie about the cold.)
Anyways, it was raining/slushing all around and there were large puddles of standing water because I live in a city with shitty drainage. Dozens of birds were splashing around in said puddles. It was like a dirty little pool party on a dirty little lido deck. …or what I imagine that would be like. And I thought, “Birds, you are drunk.”
I mean, really! I’m bundled in wool socks, my duck boots, corduroys, a sweater, my big puffy winter coat with the hood up, mittens, and a scarf, and these birds are out having a bath. But I suppose it makes sense. They are, after all, the closest ancestors to the dinosaurs and I picture the dinosaurs doing really dumb shit like ice-bathing. That’s what got them all extinct, after all. Rather than finding a nice cave or hot spring or learning how to build a fire to wait out the ice age, they went ice bathing. Clearly.
Speaking of animals, you should watch this video that my dad sent to me. We have both been watching it at least ten times a day since because it is the funniest thing I have seen in a very long time.
And on that note, Happy Tuesday!
