Here, Have a Seat

Cripes, I invited all of you to stop by and I didn’t even dust off a seat for you. I’m just the worst hostess ever. It’s 3:00 and Lord knows I’ve probably missed most of you, and you know you won’t be back until I send another reminder. Now I’m sad. But it’s one of […]

Don’t Retrieve Your Tires!

I have no idea if these two things are connected, but in my head, I’m saddened to think they might be. Driving home on 495 north, right before the 117 exit, I saw a guy walking on the side of the road, putting on gloves. I see his dumptruck (woo hoo) parked up ahead on […]

Saw an article over the weekend (at least I think it was…maybe it was last week) that pizza is actually good for you. As in, prevents cancer good for you. Now they aren’t talking about that crappola cheese-filled junk you can buy at Pizza Hut, so just forget it. Papa Ginos is closer, with the […]

Stupid Stupid Product "Upgrade"

Someone please, please tell me why on earth cereal companies feel the need to do something “new” with their perfectly fine products? Lucky Charms used to have yellow moons, pink hearts, orange stars and green clover. Then they added blue diamonds. “Oooh, mom, blue diamonds! We have to have blue diamonds!” And other assorted marshmallow […]

Drizzle

I was just trying to figure out how long it had been since I last watered the various flowers when I glanced outside and saw little drops on the deck. I hope it rains a little harder than that. Okay, here’s a photo from the weekend. This was on Saturday, Junior and his two cousins […]

Back atcha

No, I wasn’t killed by the neighbors or their dog. Just on a little vacation from the computer that involved sleeping out in a tent (anyone want to donate an air mattress), lots of swimming in my sister’s new pool, and drinking LOTS of margaritas with her neighbors. I mean, what a great weekend! Of […]

A heads up for my neighbors

I swear to God, if they let their dog out before 6 am AGAIN tomorrow and let it bark like the big brain-dead [expletive] it is, I’m going to have to go over there and take matters into my own hands. I mean, how rude is it? And just when the arsewipes on one side […]

Weather

Wow, that seems a little, well, low for this time of year.

Loaner Car

I’m borrowing my parents’ really really awesome terrific expensive fantastic car while mine is in the shop. Oh boy, spoiled am I. I’m not going to want mine back, that’s for sure. Funny thing, though. When I threw my Annie Lennox cd in the player, it sounded really odd so I checked the settings. Basically […]
