The Big DumpTruck

Throwing Little Thought Pebbles at Your Windshield Since 1996

Month: July, 2006

Bathtubs It Is!

Okay, too damned hot to do anything today, and due to circumstances I shouldn’t discuss in a public forum but let’s just say if you grew up in the 70s, using these products would allow me to go horseback riding, I didn’t want to go tubing. But we entertained ourselves as best we could, and […]

Weekend Planning

I’m trying to find something fun to do this weekend. I think our family could use a little fun (for reasons I can’t really get into here right now) in our lives. I thought my step-kids were going to join us, because we haven’t seen them for what seems like months, but apparently they don’t […]

Let’s Pretend It’s Saturday

Just when I was getting into the swing of the weekend, we get Monday dumped on us. Rather unceremoniously, I might add. I want a do-over. It’s not that I wasted the weekend, but I want an extra scoop or two. If the weekend was ice cream, it is like I was handed a kiddie […]

Orange!

Oh my gosh, taking a picture of the tomato plant was a stroke of genius, because one of them is turning red! It’s a pale peachy color right now. I’m so excited! So the question is, do I tell my parents? Because maybe they’d want me to share with them. I’m loking for new flowers […]

Can’t Get Enough of the Dunkin Donuts Commercials?

Far be it for me to point out that iTunes has a They Might Be Giants free section (I think under Podcasts, I don’t have it in front of me) and you can download every single last one, including classics like Karate, Pleather, Things I Like to Do, and Plenty of Room. I know some […]

Greenies Waiting for Sunshine

Here is the current Big DumpTruck bumper (sic) crop of tomaters. I have no idea when the damned things are going to start showing signs of turning red. It was so hot this week that I had high hopes (if memory serves, tomatoes really love hot weather). I don’t think I’m going to have enough […]

Stupid Spammers

Had to turn on the thingy that makes you type in a word to deter the spammers that have hit this week. Can I just tell you how much I detest them? I wish very very bad things on them. I do. It’s not very Christian of me, but I think spam would even piss […]

I Was Going to Tell You Something

But I can’t remember what it was. It was probably really funny. You would have liked it, I know that deep in my heart. But I’m blanking on what it was, so I can only tell you that I was going to tell you something. I’m sorry. To make it up to you, tomorrow I […]

Normally, I Like LL Bean

Normally, I Like LL Bean. However, yesterday a new catelog arrived. And it’s the fall catelog. Fall. FALL. Yes, thank you. So I like fall as much as the next guy, but I’m getting too old to wish for time to fly by. I haven’t even been able to appropriately enjoy this summer, why would […]

Stackers

Dear Burger King Customers: Have you been losing sleep over the fact that when you eat at BK you were limited to a sandwich that only had 2 meat patties on it? I mean really, ordering two doubles was a problem? Okay, so does the new 4 patty sandwich take care of that part of […]
