Floating

From the announcement e-mail that went out telling 157 people that there is a new issue of the Main Dump ready to read: So I’ll see you all next year, when I float around town completely covered with roses, tree bark and mustard seeds, sponsored by the Kodak company. (I’ve always wondered, would “dirt” actually […]

Happy Last Day of 2002

I am so done with 2002. Enough is enough is enough. I’m ready to plunge headlong into 2003. I’ve got the maple syrup, I’ve got the waffles, I’m ready for anything. No plans for the evening. I could do some first night activities here in town, but I don’t know if I’d get my money’s […]

Le Dernier Lundi de 2002

Did I write that correctly? Well sue me, at least I tried. The last Monday of 2002, and I woke up feeling very yucky. I’m going to ignore it and soldier on. But please please please tell me this isn’t the start of a cold or flu. That will make me sad. Very very sad. […]

So Far, So Good

Aaaah, a normal Saturday. I wonder if it’s busy out there in the Real World? I wouldn’t know, I haven’t bothered to leave the house. Not that I wouldn’t, I have no problem venturing out. But I haven’t had the need. I have food. I have drink. I don’t have any presents to buy. Ahhhhhhhhh. […]

Dad Jetpacks Into the 21st Century

My sister and BIL game my dad a digital camera for Christmas this year. NIIIIICE camera too. I can’t wait to see how they put it to use. I should set up a website for him, but I’m sure it would just add to MY workload. Ya Dad, if you’re reading this, I’m talking about […]

Candied Pecans

I made candied pecans this morning. I don’t even know if they’re good or not. I think the pecans might be a little on the old side, and I’m wondering if that would affect the flavor of them. Or make the mushy. Because I expected the nuts themselves to be a bit crunchier then they […]

Shopping? Not Really

I don’t think what I’ve been doing counts as shopping. See, I’ve been looking at some of the add-on kits for the Imaginext Battle Castle Santa brought us. Apparently you can only get these sets in Europe and Australia, even though the box came with an insert with pictures of all these products. And the […]

Snow Thank You

Jeebus, what’s with all the white stuff? Is it too much to ask that we not get more than 4-5 inches of snow at a time, and make it that fluffy stuff please? Got up this morning and had to get rid of a driveway full of snow. It’s dambed windy out there so you […]

Merry Ho Ho!

Merry Christmas Everyone! I hope the snow doesn’t screw up anyone’s happy holiday. We’re expecting 10-20 inches. I’m not a happy girl, but what are you going to do? Off to mom’s for ravioli…

Christmas Eve

Santa has only three more gifts to wrap. I think everything else is all set. Now we just sit and wait. Actually, we decide if we’re going to the 4pm mass with my family (will The Boy and I burst into flames if we set foot in the Church?) and then do Christmas Eve at […]
