I thought that was called "messing with someone"

Today's word at A Word a Day is menticide. It's defined thus:
noun: The systematic undermining of a person's beliefs, attitudes, and values.
Huh. I didn't know there was a word for that.

Time flies when you're doin' nothin'

I've been on vacation from July 3 to July 13. Got back to work this Monday and have been digging out from under a pile of work ever since.

Vacation was...um. I don't remember. It's kind of blurry except for the local arts festival, which was from Wednesday the 8th (kid's day) through Sunday the 12th. My sister showed up Wednesday afternoon, we went to that yarn shop the next town over, spent way too much, came home, knitted, hung out. Went to the festival Thursday, took in about 1/2 of it before the crowds got to us (when it takes great force of will to keep yourself from smacking people who stop directly in front of you for no reason or who suddenly swerve into your path, it's time to go home). Friday we hung out. That evening my Mom showed up (it was her birthday). Saturday: combo of Wednesday and Thursday. Bought Mom her birthday present at the festival. Sunday: Everyone went home, I vegged out on sofa with cat waiting for the "I made it home" phone calls to come in.

Other than that, there has been not too very much going on. Still getting vegetables from the CSA every other week. Still photographing them, though I haven't posted the pictures since the first week. Forgot. Still trying to eat them before they go bad--getting better at that.

And that's about it from over here. How are you?
