…And then this guy came over for dinner and brought all kinds of exotic, expensive wines, and told stories about them, and whoa baby, that’s some good shit. Also, he is welcome back anytime.
Aaand the rain is turning into ice balls. Dan??
OH GOD, THEY’RE COMINGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG! Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
The pierogies are done… and I only ate 2. (okay, so it was three. leave me alone)
I will be cooking things today. Be Afraid. Be very afraid. Also chopping, slicing, and dicing. This will probably include a trip to the emergency room. Stay tuned.
What national holiday is on your birthday? I got National Popcorn and Child Labor Day. I’m gonna make my kids make me popcorn.
For the first time, in a year, I’m thinking about my Snuggie. Where the hell did I put that thing? (Shut up. It’s the leopard one.)
Two of my kids are working from home today. There are lots of computer noises and conference calls and I have to be vewy, vewy, quiet. GUYS, THIS IS SO HARD!!!
If nothing else, thank your wife for cleaning the toilets. God, I hate that job. (You know what I’m doing, now, don’t you)
I never got my paint and canvases out on Sunday, so there was absolutely no painting, like I had planned. It was ‘The Man’s’ birthday, and engrossing myself in painting would’ve just been rude. I’m afraid any sort of artwork isn’t going to happen until after Thanksgiving. My daughter is coming home tomorrow for an extended visit. She will be here until after...
Aaaand my ride to Zumba never showed. Thank you Anti-Exercise Gods!! I’ll be over here, in the corner, eating cookies.
You're Special, So Special....
Happy Birthday to two of my most favorite people on earth.. Julie and ‘The Man’. Yes, it’s ‘The Man’s’ birthday too!! I think that’s pretty special. So special that I’m going to have another beer, and watch football games, and think special things about special people, on special days.. like today. Okay, I’ll stop. Happy Birthday you...
A long time ago, before I had kids, I used to paint. I was pretty damn good. I painted portraits. I painted landscapes. But mostly I painted pictures of pictures. Everything I ever painted, I gave away. My sister has my best painting. It’s a picture of a little girl sitting in a field of daisies, with kittens and butterflies. It was a cover on a Reader’s Digest. I kinda want it back,...
We’re doin Superman shots. Bottoms up! …And Clark Kent was nowhere to be found.
The Superman ‘drink’ I referred to in my earlier post, is supposed to be a shot. …But we were enjoying them as drinks, because apparently we’re badass and idiots at the same time. And yes, they do cause gigantic hangovers. (Bailey’s Irish Creme, Amaretto, and Blue Curacao) Faster than a speeding bullet. More powerful than a locomotive…
Now Isn't That Special...
11-11-11. The day all the cutesy little couples are getting married because they think it’s all ingenious and special and stuff. Also easier to remember for anniversaries… and divorce papers. Don’t rush it, kiddies, there’s always 12-12-12.
I’m home!! It was 81 degrees when we left Florida this morning. Tonight, when we flew into Grand Rapids, there was mother-effin snow on the ground… and to top it all off, the pilot missed the runway on the first try, cause it was snowing so hard, so he had to put up the landing gear, circle the area, and go in for round two. Welcome home, indeed! I’m lucky to be alive. (okay, I...
I just went to a hoity toity restaurant, ate a ton of food, then had dessert, and now I’m watching The Biggest Loser. Shoot. Me. Now.
-You know the lady, at the pool, with the iPod, who is 5 seconds short of full blown dancing in her beach chair? Yeah, that’s me. -The other night, at the restaurant, when we saw Hulk Hogan, I think he was pretty rude. Everyone respected his privacy, while he was dining, and then when he was walking out the door, a guy asked him to do the Hulk muscle pose. His response was less than...
What's Over My Shoulder?
Oh nothing. Just the Gulf of Mexico. That’s all.
If Lindsay Lohan violates her probation next time, she goes to jail for 270 days… and I’m sure she’s really scared about that, after spending almost six hours in jail this time, for her 30 day sentence. Come on. I say “make her clean a public restroom”, now that’s something that would scare some sense into her.
Just got back from having dinner at a fancy schmantzy little restaurant, and who was sitting behind us? Hulk Friggen Hogan. And, no, I didn’t give him my autograph.
Florida is beautiful. We have a great room. The weather is awesome. The sand is white. There are two pools. Everything is perfect… and then two buses full of teenagers arrived.
I’m so glad we’re having a warming trend… right when I’m going to Florida. Thanks weather guy!
We just had one of those ‘home energy assessments’. Sadly, it seems our home has no energy.
My Grandma (dad’s mom) died on this day, several years ago. She was 98 years old, outlived all her children, and was a very, very, religious woman. So fitting that she passed away on All Saints Day.
