Cali Ken

I have to believe that my sister was pulling my leg when she told me that my niece, 4 tomorrow, wanted a “Cali Ken” to go with her Cali Barbie. Cali being a series of surfer dude and dudette dolls. I had already purchased a princess bathing suite, princess sandals and a princess summer tote […]

I Want a Pink iPod

I realize that I don’t need a mini iPod. I just want one because I can get a pink one and I’ve decided my life needs feminizing. I think having pink things will make me look younger. As in, maybe junior high age. I want to Lizzie Maguire my life, you know? But when it […]

Not a Gardener

Well, I made the first of ? purchases at a garden shop today. I got my 2004 clematis (I allow myself one a year, I’m up to three) which is a Josephine Evijohill. I include this information because it turns out two friends of mine are “collectors” and they actually do want to know information […]

Someone Deserves an Award for This…

Picked up a new [new to me, hadn’t seen them before today] cool toy for the GameBoy. Holy cow, they have actual episodes of Nick tv shows on GB cartridges. Full color, quality is great, considering. The sound is a bit shaky – I’d compare it with listening to an AM radio, but hot damn, […]

Good Customer Service Call

Hello, How May I Annoy You?

I ordered something from a company last night, paying extra for shipping so it will arrive tomorrow, because there will be someone home to sign for it. The item was listed as usually shipping within 24 hours, and I paid for overnight shipping, so I assumed it would ship today to arrive tomorrow. Only their […]

Nice Muscles

Junior made me give his arms a feel the other night. He learned how to do push ups [I have no idea where] a couple of weeks ago, and he wants me to check out his muscles. “Wow, where did you get those!” I ask, trying to find a bulge on his skinny arms. Without […]

Boo Boo Ice

Mr. Dump thinks he broke his big toe (an incident involving his foot and the stairs. I didn’t see it happen). You know nothing good will come of this, right?
