Month: April, 2004

I love the weekend

Weekends should be 4 days long. I’m going to start a petition. I thought I wrote something yesterday but apparently I didn’t. So consider the first paragraph thee Saturday entry and this one Sunday’s. Thanks so much.

Green Muffins

It’s Phood Phriday here at the dump. Pull up a chair and I’ll get you a barqs. Item 1 – Work Muffins. Every once in a while, I decide to get a muffin from the cafeteria for breakfast. And every time, I think to myself “My God, how do you consistently make muffins that self-destruct […]

Here’s the video clip of Junior forgetting he has to use the bike brakes if he doesn’t want to kill himself and others. Some day, I’m sure he’ll be delighted to know I shared this with the world.

My Little Baseball Player

Junior’s first tee ball, er, minor league game is Saturday! I’m SO excited that we were able to finally figure out how to get in touch with the people running the league and get him signed up! He’s on the Turnout team – I can’t wait to show you all a picture of the man […]

Sneaky Little 81

Snack Review

Access Limitations

I’m stuck today with limited internet access. My faithful sidekick, Sidekick, isn’t communicating at all with the world of T-mobile. Makes me sad, it does. So if you’ve emailed me, I’ll get it eventually. Maybe even today! In other news: who invented French dressing, and why? And what exactly makes it “French”? The color? I […]

Burger’s Up

I declare the first bbq of the 2004 season a complete success. Mr. Dump did a stupendous job on said burgers. I just wish I’d had the fixings for a macaroni salad on hand…nothing better in my book. Junior is still working on the bike thing. He had two crashes – one of them involved […]
