All right, so this might seem obvious, but I'm curious as to whether someone actually knows the answer (as opposed to just guessing).
What quantity of light constitutes "direct sunlight" and would a plant that requires "direct sunlight" be reasonably happy in a room that has a skylight (so it's quite bright), but no actual siunlight shining on it?
The parental units treated me to Chinese food. It was a fun lunch. We avoided all the touchy subjects. Oddly enough, even though we do disagree on many points, politics is usually not one of the touchy subjects. We spent a good portion of lunch discussing the impending closure of the Tigua Indians Casino (it's about a mile from my house), and I made several good points that they seem to have agreed with. I should rant about it, but not just this minute. I'm feeling a food coma coming on.
Oh, I got a nifty fortune cookie.

Not bad considering that I once got a completely blank fortune from a fortune cookie. Apparently this is a very Bad Thing (tm).
Ok, SitC is really starting to freak me out now. Aside from some random stuff that I could totally identify with, the whole fortune cookie thing is a little too close to home. Although since real life doesn't have good script writers (but it should) I didn't think to say:
"I have no fortune. I didn't need a cookie to tell me that."
However, truer words were never spoken :). Oh, that and who the heck has friends who could cough up $30k? Everyone she knows could somehow come up with either the down payment (after already owning their own apartments) or all the cash outright. Sheesh. No matter how good I'm ever doing financially, I doubt that I will ever have $30,000.00 in liquid assets unless I knock off a bank.
Well, I'm going to go take some pictures of the city and feel poor now :).
