Miscellaneous Thursday Thoughts

Our house still for sale
Our house has been on the market for 4 weeks now and still hasn't sold. That's not surprising, given how hard it is for buyers to get a loan right now. Fortunately we can be patient on this one. Not like we have any choice....
Unlisted We Stand
Two times last week I was trying to find a friend's phone number via Yahoo's people search function and got this message "Unlisted Phone Number & Address Found." Both of these friends happened to be married women. So how did I find their numbers? Easy, I used the same website and searched for their husbands' names. They were listed.
Thank you for your votes
Many thanks to everyone who voted for us in our contest. You guys are great, especially John and Forrest. If you look at the website it appears that we have been trounced by the family from Shanghai. That's because they cheated. No seriously, the website is only showing the votes cast by the Internet - it doesn't show the votes sent by cell phone. Buddy and I suspect the Shanghai family put all their effort into the internet voting and ignored the cell phone voting, so when the cell phone votes appear we'll suddenly pull out ahead. Or at least not as far behind as it would appear right now.
How can this be?
Last night the mosquitoes and I had an especially fierce battle. They bit me 4 times and I killed 8 of them. Now how is it possible that my dear husband sleeps through all of this and gets not one single bite?! It just doesn't seem right. I wanted to wake him up and bite him just to make myself feel better.
