Dear Blog Readers,
We have become the kind of blogger we never wanted to be — the kind who has a "read our blog" button on our website but the newest post is months old. We blame Facebook for this — it's so much easier to write something there and we seem to have more followers there than we did here on the blog. Still, we can't quite bring ourselves to give it up altogether yet — so instead, we're posting this little note to explain our lack of current entries. Please do check out our facebook page, we think it's fun, if not quite as long form.
sincerely, the Joie de Blogger.

Right Tool for the Right Job
Girl, about 10, at the store with several friends, asks seemingly randomly: "Will I get to eat pie tomorrow?" I look over and realize she's addressing her question to the flat cellophane fortune telling fish. These fifty cent fish have been around forever - you place fish on your palm and its actions tell you if you are fickle, passionate, in love, etc. Me: "You'll have to ask the Magic Eight Ball - the fortune telling fish only knows about love." Girl: "Oh. Okay!" and off to the Eight Ball she went.
