George Bush Drinking Game

Drink whenever he says “it’s hard”. You don’t want to add any other items or you’ll get alcohol poisoning.

21 Days

21 days of work left before vacation. I don’t even care that I’m not going to get paid for a week…I’m getting a vacation! It’s been over a year since I’ve taken off more than 2 days in a row! I can’t describe to you how badly I need this time away from work… 21 […]

New Interview Available For Your Viewing Pleasure

Hey, kids! The Daily Probe published another of my interviews. Chris has actually renamed the feature to “Still Life with Joan,” (Joan being the name I chose for the person who supposedly writes these things). That means I may remove the DP: references in the interviews themselves, because he’s going to change them to say […]

A Campus Queen Lunch Box

DP: It’s back to school time again, and the Daily Probe is delighted to be able to talk with a Campus Queen lunch box! I’m so excited, I’m practically hyperventilating! CQL: Oh, my! DP: You were my first and only metal lunch box as a child. CQL: I’m so honored! Did I do a good […]

How To Destroy Something in 10 Minutes

It didn’t come with a little wrist strap like the old one, so I removed the old wrist strap and attempted to attach it at the appropriate place on the new one. And proceeded to scratch and destroy the casing around the place where a […]

Is It My Breath?

For some reason, my mom’s answering machine doesn’t like me. It keeps hanging up on me. Oh sure, it’s polite enough. It thanks me for my call before cutting me off. I can’t tell if it’s because her machine is full (which seems unlikely, but you never know. Maybe they don’t erase anything, ever) or […]

Do They Have to Report This?

Yesterday at about 6:30pm or so (I think – I didn’t look at my watch but I know the Sox game was already over) we were looking around at the cars at the new Saturn dealership in Fitchburg, which is maybe a mile or so from the Fitchburg airport, and I heard the sound of […]

Kick It

The fever is gone, so we are actually enjoying the weekend. Thank goodness! I was about done dealing with sick little boy. So this is short because it’s a 75 degree fall day and I am not staying inside the house.

Not Quite Yet

Junior still had a fever at 2am (when he woke me to ask if he could get up to go to the bathroom. I don’t believe he’s ever asked that before – I certainly don’t think we ever told him he needed permission. Maybe he was dreaming he was at school). So no field trip […]

Perfect Attendance Award

There will be no perfect attendance award for little Junior Dump this year. Actually, I would be completely shocked if he ever got one, just because he’s prone to getting strep throat. That and the fact that he’s going to miss 6 days of school while we are in Florida next month. Junior had a […]
