The Big DumpTruck

Throwing Little Thought Pebbles at Your Windshield Since 1996

Month: August, 2005

Hello From Vermont!

We’re here in St. Albans with ZERO ZERO ZERO phone/internet connectivity on my SideKick. Luckily there’s a computer in the hotel lobby that I can use to check my mail and send some out. You may not hear back from me until tomorrow. Try to have a good day without me.

Don’t Eat It!

It’s Thursday, so you know what that means! No? I was hoping you knew. Okay, instead of the usual tripe, I’ve go a link to someone else’stripe. Or more specifically someone else’s pickled pork rinds and otherthings one shouldn’t eat. It’s very very funny stuff, but the photos of the food items may causeyou to […]

Reunited and It Feel So Good

Going to a family reunion this weekend. This is for my mother’s father’s side of the family. I’m trying to decide if I should bring my digital camera or my video camera. I’m leaning toward video, just because that might be more fun for her to look at later, after I burn it down to […]

Corn Nibblet Day

Coupla random thoughts. You know, corn nibblets. (Nibblets? Where is my dictionary…) Weather.com’s 15 day forecast, while probably not anything close to accurate, is now officially giving weather predictions for the week we’re on vacation. Right now it looks sunny and in the mid-to-high 70s. As long as it isn’t going to be a whole […]

I call the dog Scooby, Benji, Lassie, or Toto, depending on what I’m recreating. And sometimes when he’s sniffing I’ll ask […]

The Dog Has a Middle Name

When I’m yelling at the dog to get out from underneath the desk for the 100th time, I decided he needs a middle name. Because you cannot yell at someone without using their middle name. So I decided he should have the same middle name as Mr. Dump. I tried Junior’s middle name but it […]

Leave It To Me

I may be the only person I know who can get injured by oatmeal. I’m just saying. (Okay, it was hot, cooked oatmeal, and it landed on my finger and gave me an ouchie. But still, it counts as an oatmeal injury.)

And Now She Writes the Next Little House on the Prairie Book

It’s been far too long between Little House on the Prairie books. I know that they’re probably labor-intensive, what with the small words and the big print. Maybe it’s the illustrations (which really, are some of the best ever done for chapter books – far far better than the Harry Potter illustrations). But because Laura […]

Jody Writes the Next Harry Potter Book

In case JK Rowling has a hand cramp, I’m willing to take a stab. I’ve made some notes. The next book is going to be wildly different. Nobody goes back to Hogwarts. Instead they buy a van, paint it and call it the Magic Machine…Harry Hermoine, Ron, Ginny, Hagrid and their dog, Scooby Doo. Sure, […]

No Green Olives

How am I supposed to enjoy my salad here at my contrct job when they don’t have green olives available to me? I am crushed. Other than that, I’m busy. But no green olives, damnit!
