Lisa's Musings (on National Lasagna Day, bed bugs) and Every Day Life

Garfield would be proud.

Bet you didn't know that today is National Lasagna Day, but after yesterday's foray into 16 different types of chocolate delights, I think I'll pass.

I feel hungover, so I'm blaming the chocolate, since I didn't have a drink.

But it you can find a BRAVO! Cucina Italiana or a BRIO Tuscan Grille (Caps come from the press release, really) in your neck of the woods, lasagna's half-price today for dine-in only customers for either lunch or dinner.

Do we even have either of those restaurants in the area? I don't eat out much, but I've never heard of either of them.

And in other not-so silly, news, apparently, the bed bugs are biting and biting hard in New York City. So hard in fact that Bedbug Central is having a buggy ole time providing up-to-the-minute information to people who are being invaded by these pests.

There's even a press conference at 2 p.m. today at City Hall set up through the New York Mayor's Office and the NYC Bed Bug Advisory Board (ya gotta love it) to discuss "New York's new bed bug public education initiative."

Yup, makes me really want to hop on a plane and head to New York City, which is close to where I grew up, to check it out.

You may insert your own joke here, but from what I've been told, bed bugs are no laughing matter and entomologists are having a field day figuring out how to manage this growing pest problem.

Like there aren't enough rats and pigeons in New York City to deal with, now bed bugs? So, I'm guessing here, but if there is such thing as a bed bug epidemic, apparently, New York's in the midst of one.

And, if you are so included, you can go to and get all the information you care to access, but perhaps were afraid to ask in polite adult company.

So folks, be thankful tonight when you turn down those sheets, that Michigan may be suffering from a lot of bad things, but at least from what I know, a bed bug infestation, isn't one of them.
