Who would win: robert blake or saddam hussein?

I love people who take the time to think about stuff like this. See the list over at utter wonder?. === Hey, Robert Blake, maybe after you asked five or six people if they’d kill your wife you should have figured they might TELL someone if YOU did it. And to those people who were […]

Edit Mode

I have been editing my NaNoWriMo novel the past couple of days, and I have the big papercut to prove it (when did they start making file folders out of razor blades, I ask you?). Parts of it are not bad at all. I’m glad I waited so long before picking it back up, it […]

Swim Lesson Day

I hope we can get through this morning without losing a major piece of the car. I got the estimate from the insurance estimater…over $700. Yikes. And while I’ve given my story over the phone several times, now I have to file out a written report. All this because someone ELSE backed into ME. I […]

SURE it’s worth that much

My request for a property tax abatement was rejected. Apparently an extremely similar cape (same development) with a garage sold for $242k. So they valued my house for $233 with no garage. I don’t think I’d have a problem with this if the house next door, which is a colonial with a garage, slightly more […]

No, I Don’t Shop There

The other night I happened to be driving in a part of Fitchburg I don’t frequent that much, and noticed a new store in a strip mall – NY Bling Bling. I’m pretty sure the space used to house a dollar store. Could still be a dollar store for all I know. So many things […]

Before I Forget

I also wanted to mention that the dream I had where Ben Affleck and Matt Damon were fighting over me was the best dream of the century. Carry on.

I Guess I Did Okay

My personal war with my mailman seems to be over. It wasn’t a big war, just a little one. See, we got 2 feet of snow last week (Monday night). I spent half an hour digging out my mailbox Tuesday. He delivered mail. Then, Wednesday there was mail. But Thursday there was no mail, which […]
