Throwing Little Thought Pebbles at Your Windshield Since 1996

Month: June, 2004

Magically Delicious

I had a bowl of Lucky Charms for breakfast this morning. You’d think that would have set me up for a great day, what with them being lucky and all. Well, nothing spectacular to report so far, and in fact, I forgot my security badge at home which is actually a strike against it being […]

Welcome, Banana Eaters!

There’s a link on the Banana website back to an early issue of the dump, because one day I happened to write about eating banana number 4077. This was back in 1997, kids. When it was cool to be a banana eater. Check out the link, if you will. Dig that groovy page design! And […]

All The Important Stuff

More thought pebbles. I know you’ve been sitting by the warm glow of your monitor just waiting for them. On the drive home from work late last week, I was behind a jeep that had one of those customized license plate holders. Not unusual. Some advertise the dealership where said vehicle was purchased, some root […]

All Done Tee Ball

Well THAT was fast. Tee Ball is done for the season, and next year Junior will probably be good enough for instructional league, which is where they start getting a little more serious. We’re going to practice throwing and catching this summer, which is where he could use the work. His batting is actually pretty […]

“Because I Have to Work”

Junior is on my case about me staying home with him all summer. Which sounds great to both of us, but, well, unless the bank fairy wants to bling me with $10,000 (give or take) to cover the time between now and when he goes back to school, I’m afraid I’ll be going to work […]

He’s All Done

Well, the boy finished kindergarten. Not a lot of tears to be seen by the kids, and the moms I saw were holding it together. The kids are so excited about going to first grade that I don’t think they’re sad that they won’t be going back to kindergarten. I’m still amazed at how fast […]

Out With The Old, in With The New

Today I met Junior at the elementry school he’ll be attending next fall. They bussed all the kids over from the kindergarten, but there wasn’t room for parents. I get so emotional over things since becoming a mom. I mean, it’s a tour of the school, and I could feel the sniffles starting with just […]

Nose-y

Every time I blow my nose, my sinus cavity follows up with this weird squeaking noise, which I have determined is the equivalent of pulling the end of a balloon taut so the air squeals on its way out. My nostrils are serving as the end of the balloon. *blow* eeeeEEEEeeeeeee This is probably more […]
