Why would you put music on your website?
Do you really think anyone wants to hear your music?

We don't.

Just so you know.

They're back!

What to do when the day care closes for a week?
Call the aunties with large amounts of accrued vacation days of course!

On our first night we had a tandem bath time with grandma.

Then at 5 a.m. this morning I sang Christmas carols over coffee.
With blinking antlers of course.

Are you busy doing some holiday cleaning?

Remember to clean under your furniture and especially make sure it's pristine under your sofa and chair cushions.

You can be sure a nephew will lose a binky, your uncle will drop his swizzle stick or the toddlers just might want to make a cushion fort.
If so, you'll be ready!

Real life IS like the LWord

I wrote once about how surreal (and fantastic) it was that on the LWord show UPS delivery people were all women, hot - and oh, just happened to be lesbians.
And of course they would sleep with you if you were so lucky as to be home when your package was delivered.

So I had to laugh today - I was out in the front lawn tending to the fall leaves.
Here I am cruising around on my 15HP lawn tractor, in the requisite barn coat with heavy gloves -check, work boots -check... also sporting an incredibly cute hat.

I notice a UPS truck driving up the street. Its slows. Sure enough... it comes to a stop in front of our house. The driver jumps down off her seat and gives me a wave as she goes into the back of her truck... whooo weeee. Stunning.

Of course, I leap off my tractor (lucky me ...didn't fall off) to retrieve the package.
And oh my...that smile, those eyes.

Here is where the story deviates...ya know, slightly... at least in real life. I toss the package on the porch and jump back on the tractor as the UPS truck pulls away.

Isn't life grand.

it does what!?

That's what I said to my mother the other night when she recommended a neti pot for my current sinus stuffiness. I had never heard of one... because yes, I do live under a rock and am very happy there, thank you very much.

So she described to me what it would do. The whole in one side out the other concept.
It completely fascintated me.
So of course - I ran right out and got one.


Have you ever used one of these things.
and mildly addictive.

more reality TV... really... I mean really

People - please stop watching this trash on television, making it so popular that they continue to come out with ideas one more stupid than the other.

Only we can make a difference.

Open your windows, pick up your TV and heave it right out the window.
(for those of you with large screen HD TV's - you may need to open the door).

You must realize we are a few seasons away from The Running Man* -- don't you?

*...the novel describes a science fiction dystopia where market capitalism and television game shows have spiraled out of control...

When raking leaves, try to pick the windiest day possible.

Give your neighbors a good laugh.

a follow up

where do you go when you are all dressed up?

to the liquor store of course!

What I found disturbing about my chipmunk-ness was just how well my normal wardrobe fit into the costume.
I dress a chipmunk.

we were supposed to be raking

The leaves were wet on Saturday.
And it was showering intermittently.

So my creative wife decided to have some Halloween fun.

After she finished painting herself...

She helped me to release my inner chipmunk.

Happy Halloween
