Dear Unilever and Procter& Gamble,

I'm a woman, age 25-32, and you make many products I'd like to use, except they contain irritating fragrances.  What is up with that?  Who would notice if their Pantene smelled of nothing in particular?

And, Dear Readers,

I've been in Boise for a little over a month now, and things are going pretty nicely.  The move was a little disastrous, as our car DIED in an area without phone service.  We knew the car was getting long in the tooth and would need to be replaced soon.  With the help of my fantastic in-laws, we were able to get a used Nissan Versa that we've named Vice.  Luckily, I was driving a U-Haul, and we were able to get to the new place before the landlord left for the day.

More interestingly, I've been able to start some volunteering stuff at the Idaho Food Bank and the Idaho Discovery Center (a children's science museum).  I've always fantasized about being Bill Nye the Science Guy when I grow up (despite the fact that my name rhymes with nothing), and I'm now one step closer!

Being in Boise, I will probably be able to be more politicky than I have lately, so blogging will be more frequent.

Agreed. I think it's worse in the UK, but I'm not entirely sure as I've been here too long to truly compare. Sorry about the car. Glad things are going so well for you otherwise.

Hee, "Vice".
