For those of you that hang out over there at Facebook, I also apologize if my business business is interfering with your personal business. I know it's messing with mine! For all the hundreds of millions of people that "do facebook" there are an amazing number of issues with that site. And, did you know that if you send an email to Facebook, they send back an auto response that says we don't respond to emails, go "here" and work it out. ARGH! And there is no way to separate your personal and business pages. Why am I even bothering with Facebook for my busniess then? Because the big secret over at http://www.etsy.com/ is that Facebook gets you sales, and guess what? Three sales in less than 24 hours, so I suppose I am going to have to tough it out because that's so cool!
Spring has sprung in California and we have had a few really awesome sunshiney days. Now, the Farmers Market starts on Sunday and guess what? We are expecting rain! Obviously if it rains, I am a no show and that will suck, but what can you do? We do need more rain here.
In fact, I have been taking Indian baths which to me are really a fun way to pretend I am still in India. Ha! I'll bet you were wondering when that was gonna come up! If you don't know what an Indian bath is, I'll tell you. I was going to do a little video or picture story about it but then I'd have to show my parts and this isn't that kind of blog at all. So what they do in a lot of hotels in India is bring a bucket of hot water to your door in the morning, either that or you have such a tiny water heater in your bathroom that you will fill up the bucket with hot water and mix with a little cold and there is a little plastic pitcher that you pour that water on, then soap up, then rinse. For those of you that are thinking "that Susie is just crazy", let me explain that I cannot get out of my head this image of a little boy in Agra drinking orange rusty water out of a pipe coming out of the ground. Now that happened 3 years ago, when I went to India with Karenji. I just cannot forget it, and I cannot enjoy long showers or even baths anymore without remembering that little boy. In fact, I can't even leave the water running when I brush my teeth or wash my hands because he pops into my head at those times too. So I managed to update you about my life without talking too much about India, right? Ok Ok just a little more, SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE came out of DVD today and is available at video stores right now! If you haven't yet seen it, now is your chance. Here we have the cover of Q & A, which Slumdog Millionaire was based upon. I looked high and low for this book before I went to India but it was unavailable. Then while in India, I found a copy in Bangalore for rs. 150. That's about $3! Woo hoo. The cover of the book has changed now, and so I am mighty happy that I have this one. The last thing I'd like to point out is that the book is different enough from the film so that seeing the movie before I read the book did not ruin it at all. In fact, had the film been more like the book, it would have stretched on for at least an extra hour, and that would have been ok by me. I hope you will read the book or watch the film, they are both fantastic!
