Do Your Ears Hang Low

Wait, is it “Do Your Ears Hang Low” or “Turkey in the Straw?” Or are those both the same tune? Either way, I’m very thrilled to report the highlight of my whole week happened today. Nothing better can possibly happen. I had an ice cream truck in my driveway! (Crappy cell phone picture ahead – […]

Something Not Quite Right With These Oranges

I accidentally purchased the wrong thing at the store last week. I meant to buy little cups of peaches for Junior to take in his lunch, but what I grabbed was the little mandarin orange cups. Same color, wrong fruit. I took one to work with me today to see what they are like. And […]

Meat Review

Okay, so it’s only a partial meat review, because I only tried one thing so far, but I have my review of the new butcher shop on Central Street. Sausages – B+These are actually very good, but I can only give them a B+ because even though I bought sweet sausage I found that my […]

How I Found Out There Were Fireworks Tonight

Should I really blame myself? I mean, I understand that I don’t spend as much time driving around town as I should, and I don’t subscribe to the local paper, but shouldn’t there be a better way to let people know that a big town celebration is coming up? Signs or something? I do read […]

What’s On Your iPod?

Okay, I don’t really want to know. It’s just polite to ask people about their likes and dislikes instead of just blathering on about yourself all the time. You get the reputation of being self-centered and you never get asked on a 2nd date. Not that this is a problem, although it has literally been […]

Archives

So not a single one of you wanted to even mention to me that my archives were messed up? That I hadn’t added months to the list since February, and February’s archive link was broken? None of you? I was trying to google search the site for something I *know* I wrote for the post […]

Decorating Your New Home?

I found a great source of, um, art. Singular Films features el cheapo copies of those old school films they showed us about manners, the Red Menace, and menstruation. The last two don’t refer to the same thing, by the way. So they also sell posters. Dude. I would SO buy this…
