Thursday, Thursday

Happy food coma day, everyone! Remember, though – gravy is not a substitute for love. Or root beer. I am thankful for each and every one of you, but especially the people who invented gumballs. You rock.

Sad Sight on a Rainy Night

Sad Sight on a Rainy Night, originally uploaded by Big DumpTruck. Saw this at the mall last night when I was running an errand. Hard to tell if it was coming or going, but I assume it’s up for the Mother’s Day crowd. For the record, I do not want to go to a mall […]

No Hot Water

Hellish morning! First I don’t want to wake up but the stupid birds (I hate them with a white hot fire that consumes my soul) are back. I guess I need to figure out how to borrow a shotgun again. Oh, and then? No hot water. And after all that, I go down stairs and […]
