* desert rat * - i grew up in the Sonoran Desert of Arizona. but i am recovering. :)
* decade * - we've been married a few months over a decade now.
* desparate * - we are going mad around here trying to find a little house in the country to move to. to have some peace and quiet will be balm to our minds and souls. and my kid will be able to play outside on her own without worrying about the neighbour's dog.
* didgeridoo * - not because i play it; simply because it's a fantastic word! :)
