This week it has become even more apparent that what my husband and I surf on the internet is completely different. Even though we get along fabulously, we are quite different in a lot of areas.
I spend most of my time online reading other people's blogs, updating my own blog, on Facebook (he doesn't have an account with them), on Star Tribune.com, CNN and various entertainment sites like People, TV Guide and Entertainment Weekly.
On Monday on our drive home from work Uncas turned to me and said "I was reading about soap today."
OH - really?
Then he said "Yeah, I am pretty confident if we were stranded in the wilderness, I could make soap for you."
Oh gosh - thanks Sweetie! See, he really does live up to his name Uncas! It was my father that gave him the nickname before we took our last Boundary Waters trip in May of 2007.
But, back to the soap - Uncas then proceeds to tell me how he would go about making it. Thankfully we were blocks from home, so I didn't get the long version. My mind was already wandering when he started about how he needed a source of fat and that would most likely come from a small aninmal that he would have to kill (which could also be our source of food.)
When I retold this story to my friend, she suggested that he should use lavendar oil to make it scented. What a great idea!
So - I can tell you which celebrity got married over the weekend (Bruce Willis) and my husband can tell you how to make soap.
UPDATE - on tonight's drive home, before I even told him about this blog post, Uncas said to me "Guess what I read about today?" This evening's topic was wood burning stoves.
