I Haven’t An Original Thought In My Head

Apparently we weren’t the only ones who thought it would be a good idea to take a trip to the beach yesterday. The beach was PACKED and the parking lots were jammed with people all up and down the Hampton strip. It was so weird to see people on one side of the road, and […]

Pee Before You Go

On a road trip to the beach. Cause it’s summer as far as I’m concerned. Is there any chance that Brown’s is open? I guess we’ll find out when we get there…

Who Was Doing What?

I am trying to find out more details, but apparently the Leominster police department recently arrested Robert F. Kennedy III (yes, those Kennedys – grandson of RFK) for, um, peeing in public. How on earth did I miss THIS piece of news until now??!! And where on earth WAS he at the time? Okay, just […]

Dump at the Movies

Okay, not so much “at” the movies, cause it’s a DVD we bought and watched last night. Spy Kids 3D: Game Over And yes, we watched the 3D version. I don’t think it works as well on television as it does in a movie theater, but when you buy the movie they give you 4 […]

Not Sure of the Connection

Looks like Tony Pierce was having a bad day yesterday. Crisis of faith time. And at the end of the post, he linked to three sites, one of them mine. I’m never quite sure what the connection to what he writes and what he links to is, but geez, I hope I’m not one of […]

Beach Weather

I’m ready to go to the beach. I realize it’s February in Massachusetts, but the weather has inched into the 40’s neighborhood for the past few days, and should hit mid-to-high 40s on the weekend. That’s beach weather, after this past winter. I just want to go because it’s been too long since I’ve seen […]

Who Wants to Be King of the World

Last night we finally got through the “Who Wants to Be King of the Jungle” game on the Lion King 1.5 DVD (cute cute movie, few extras, but they’re good ones) and Junior decided we needed to play “Who Wants to be King of the World”. I said “James Cameron” but he didn’t get the […]

Bribery

If I give you a dollar, could you make this be Wednesday instead of Tuesday? Thanks, you’re a pal. I’ll give you a second dollar if you make the headache go away, preferably by giving me a full body massage in a dark room with soft music playing. On the up-and-up, please. I’m not that […]

Not Quite Beer at Work

The cafeteria served Beef Stew in Guiness with root vegetables today. Hooo boy, that was good eatin. I’m not a fan of Guiness, or I’d have said “The only thing that would have made it better is if it was “Beef Stew WITH Guiness.” But don’t think that’s on the list of corporate-friendly menu items.
