saturday scruples

this is just juvenile enough to do.
1. Your brother is an activist. You suspect he may be involved in a series of bombings. Do you notify authorities?
well, being an only child with no knowledge of the strength of sibling connections, my first thought was to get my nosey business out of his “activism” and focus on more comforting things, like baking chicken pot pies.
2. A friend’s spouse is coming on to you. Do you tell the friend?
hell yea! then we can have a threesome.
3. Your company’s profits will double if you replace 22 long-time employees with new software. Do you?
i don’t think so.. especially if i were included in that pool of 22. i’m not saying that i ain’t no team player; i just like to play for the little guys.

i can’t stop!

yup, it’s friday.
1. What is one thing you don’t like about your body?
i don’t like that the tattoo on my boob of a little cartoon guy in a straight jacket is getting taller.
2. What are two things you love about your body?
that everything still functions as it should, and that i don’t have an overabundance of hair in any weird places. (that was /hard/.)
3. What are three things you want to change about your home?
aside from the fact that we rent: get a bigger tub, would like more closets (i.e., utility closet, bathroom closet, anything to get the damn vaccuum out of my bedroom), and more kitchen counter space.
4. What are four books you want to read this year?
The art of looking sideways, Scumbler.. this is taking too long. (note to readers, i already own the two books that i mentioned.)
5. What are five promises you have kept to yourself?
i will continue to keep them to myself.


You’ve probably read it already, but I hadn’t. Here’s what some people have to say about blogs. Just got back from a nummy breakfast at Monty’s with T. I will say that Lazy Jane’s does a better spinch feta omelette. I really enjoy how he and I can’t stop talking. It’s good to know someone’s listening between glares at the screaming baby in the next booth. :)

yesterdays events

cursing damn work computer for crashing I’m going to summarize, since I don’t have the patience to be witty twice in a row. The note blew away because it’s too cold for the tape. The paper was no where to be seen this morning. I had a personal Pizzeria Uno pizza last night (Four Cheese with Pesto) and it was good. Almost all of my eBay bead “winnings” have been mailed to me so I can start learning how to peyote stitch. That’s all for now.


I’m just an ornery cuss today. I swear, by the time I’m 30, this wrinkle in my forehead is going to be a mile deep. Today’s Problem #1: We get these “free papers” that no one reads tossed onto the front porch. I’m not sure what they are selling, but it looks like mostly auto adverts. Anyhow, I believe the two copies (one for each unit) were delivered on Friday. I brought ours in on Saturday and put the paper in our “too be recycled” pile. On Sunday, the neighbor’s was still on the porch, only it had mysteriously been moved in front of our door. Thinking a point could be assumed, I moved it back over in front of their door on Monday. This morning, as I leave the house, it’s almost falling off the porch as far from their door (and subsequently close to ours) as it can be. So, I put it directly in front of their door and tape a note to it, “We already got ours, thanks though! :)” Think they’ll get it?

is it tuesday?

Having a work holiday at the beginning of a week is always welcomed, but it still throws off my entire being. All day yesterday, Kurt and I swore it was a Sunday.. So, though it’s Tuesday already, I feel like I’ve actually lost a day, as opposed to having gained a vacation day. Maybe that’s a sign of working too much? I tried desperately to find a “Tuesday Two” for today’s blog. I understand the stupidity in a bunch of people responding to the same 2-7 questions on any given day, but it gives me something to do if I have nothing to say. I’m a poet.


This is George. He just got done with his yearly brumation, wherein he worried poor Kurt to death with his lack of movement and eating. I’ll tell you what, he’s gotten all of his strength back and I can hardly keep enough mealworms in the house to satiate his hunger. Good thing he like veggies. The mealworms are his weekend snack. Say hi to George. (image disappeared somewhere)

heppy birfday

janis j would be 60 today if she didn’t shoot whiskey directly into her veins and just drank it like a normal person.

the first of many

Our first Stitch and Bitch went splendidly. Fash learned, with lightning speed, that knitting is fun! jennifer and I also delved into the purl stitch. This, combined with the knit stitch makes up the entirety of our knitted world. I think I can say with confidence that we’re all thrilled. Hats anyone heard of headhuggers? As Fash put it, the cause is a little strange right now, but in a few months, we’ll be donating tons, I’m sure.
