Unique Rabbit

Wind and driving rain. Ahhh, Monday. At least it isn’t snow, right? Right? My brother-in-law bought a Nintendo magazine over the weekend because they just got a GameCube. I don’t know that I was aware such a thing existed, but with Christmas looming, I grabbed it to peruse the potential gifts. One thing they had […]

Worst License Plate Ever

I didn’t see this one personally, and it’s probably good because I would have driven off the road laughing. “PAP SMR” Gah. Had to be a guy, cause even a female Gyno wouldn’t put PAP SMR on her license plate. Ever.

And It’s Not Even My Birthday!

I’d like to thank the Florida Marlins for the early birthday present. I know my birthday isn’t until January (in case you’re looking, here’s my Amazon wishlist. Buying me the expensive stuff earns you more brownie points than the spatula, just FYI. Oh, so anyway, great game, I hope Beckett wins the Cy Young just […]

Blogrolling Hates Me

I like that my blog is listed on blogrolling as “recently updated” but when I look at my blogroll, it isn’t actually listed as updated. It either is or it isn’t, right? And I can get the pinger to work from my home machine but not from work. Very odd. So this pointless post is […]

Weekend Planning

I’m not sure what my plans are for the weekend. There are a lot of things to do, but at this very second, I don’t feel like doing anything. I have high hopes that this will change by tomorrow, but giving the nature of my blah’s (let’s put it this way – I’ve been craving […]

One Year Ago Today

You know, it’s not often that you can use a photo from exactly one year ago and have it be completely appropriate. Granted, I don’t have that table out on the deck anymore, but everything else looks eerily similar. When I left home, branches were already drooping under the weight of some seriously heavy snow. […]

I’m a Winnah

I don’t usually buy soda at work, because it’s a big honking waste of money. It kills me to pay $1.25 for a 16 ounce bottle when I can buy a 12-pack of cans for $2.00 when it’s on sale. So generally I stick with the free water (complete with free ice!). Except this week […]

Trail of Belongings

Today was Junior’s field trip to pick pumpkins. It was 40 and drizzling out. He had his winter coat, hat, mittens and boots. They picked apples and pumpkins. So when I picked him up tonight – he had the hat, the boots, one mitten, no apples and no pumpkin. He thinks he left the mitten […]

Snow?!

You know what makes a good alarm clock? The DJs on the local radio station talking about snow in the forecast in the middle of October. Boy, I woke right up when I heard that. Now that is the kind of stuff that makes a clock radio a good investment. The snow is predicted for […]

Add-on to the post below…

(I’d say the previous post, but in Blogger-land, the previous post is physically the “next” post and I didn’t want to confuse you.) When I went to Junior’s Kindergarten one morning, I was there when they did the Pledge and two kids actually sat it out. I don’t know why I found that fascinating, but […]
