oh hellebores.  these are from holland and my best estimate of vase life is 2-3 days without the assistance of a cooler.  i need my own hellebore patch but in the meantime these will do.

i'm trying to get this blog post done for the week before the start of the Super Bowl commercials.  i'm rooting for the seahawks (can't stand peyton and wes welker is a traitor).  but at the end of the day (game), i only care about the score.  i put $20 into two squares with 7 and 7.  i need these guys to score, perhaps 7-17 and the end of the first quarter.  hold it there and i'll be $1000 richer come monday.
