1. Parking for Two?
I've mentioned before that my current condo has a parking spot and Cam has been using it for his car (he is here around 50% of the time so it has been really handy). It is my first time having a parking spot and I really didn't think it was in my budget when condo hunting, but I lucked out. (parking spots go for around $30,000 and up in Toronto, depending on location). I have really been enjoying the freedom it offers for Cam and guests visiting as my building has limited visitors spots.
Anyway the condo building is undergoing major renovations to the parking garage and in the summer I am losing access to my spot for around 6-7 weeks and I applied for an alternate spot during the construction. I was talking to the property manager and she said "you only applied for one alternate spot...do you need two?". I was all "what the what??". Turns out my parking spot is actually a tandem spot, which means that two cars can park in it, though it is not two actual separate spots because one car blocks in the other.

2. Oil of Oregano is the Bomb-Diggity
On Friday I woke up with a tickle in my throat...never a good sign. As the day progressed I started feeling more and more like a cold was imminent (everyone is sick right now and I am surrounded by germs). When I got home I took 4 drops of Oil of Oregano in some OJ and continued that every day after. I was really tired for a few days, but that was my only symptom and I beat that cold back like no one's business.
I swear by Oil of Oregano every time I feel a cold coming on and the last 3-4 times have all been like this- just a lot of tiredness for a few days and then I am back to normal! It tastes HORRIBLE, but I just gulp it down with orange juice for that vitamin C kick. It is also kind of pricey ($25 for a small bottle), but at 4 drops a day it lasts for a loooong time.
Anyway, I just want to spread the word about this stuff so others can try!
3. Absentminded Bad Habits
Does anyone else have a bad habit that they just can't quit because they don't even catch themselves doing it until it is too late? Biting nails, cracking knuckles, twirling hair? Mine is touching my eyebrows. I KNOW, IT'S WEIRD. I am a tactile fidgit-er, in that I am always doing repetitive motions that feel interesting to my fingertips. I have no idea if that makes sense, but as a little kid I used to roll the satin edge of my blanket to a sharp point and rub my thumb over it so I guess I started young with this habit?
Anyway I cannot seem to stop touching my new eyebrows because it feels damn cool. I think I caught myself 100 times today (no exaggeration). My eyebrows cost like $70 a pop now with the exchange rate and shipping and I am wearing them down so fast with all my touching!! Does anyone have any tips for breaking this habit? I do it without realizing! Help me!!

Why are cats so afraid of bananas?
