Better late…

Saturday, November 29th, 2008

A belated Happy Thanksgiving to all of you, from me and my (I wish) foster family, The Taylors! Discovering Friday Night Lights, Kyle Chandler, Connie Britton, Taylor Kitsch and the rest of the crew is one of the things that I’m most thankful for this year!  (That and getting a President after 8 years without […]

Out of the Dark Ages

Monday, November 24th, 2008

Mucho excitement this weekend as BW and I bought a HDTV at Costco!  Goodbye mammoth 200-lb tube monster, hello 35-lb LCD screen! It is a Vizio 1080p 37″ LCD.  So far we really love it.  About half the price of a comparable Sony Bravia, for example.  And yeah, the Bravia is a bit nicer….but it […]

And she’s buying a stairway to…

..Lanksy Bros.?  But of course! In my religion, these are the Celestial Beings who greet you for your admission to the Hereafter.  The Almighty, and his faithful servant Saint Bernard Lansky is keeping the books. Anyway, the stairwell is DONE now.  The correct carpet finally arrived (I f*ed up and ordered the wrong color a […]

You know things are bad when I’m writing about how I have nothing to write about. I actually have been very busy, but busy doing very boring things.  Like my job, or installing carpet.  I haven’t read any good books lately, haven’t seen any movies.  There are no movies coming up to blather about in […]

Hallway Phase 1.something

Monday, November 17th, 2008

We’re still working on redecorating our hallway and stairs.  Previously, I told you about how we painted the walls and bannister.  This weekend, we finished up with the process we’d started a while ago of ripping up the cheap beige carpet on the stairs, then sanding and varnishing the stairs. Only one more phase to […]

Word up!

We haven’t had one of these quiz/meme thingies in a while, here’s one that Loupy sent me with my answers attached.  If you wanna, cut and paste with your own answers in the comments. ————————————————— USING ONLY ONE WORD? Not as easy as you might think. Now copy or forward, change the answers to suit […]

Use your imagination

I have been trying all morning to get a picture of my anniversary ring for you, but to no avail.  I’ve learned that 1.  it’s impossible to take a good photo of your own hand,while holding a camera in the other 2.  especially in a house with no good lighting at all So if you […]

Roll call

Tuesday, November 11th, 2008

Well, we’re back. Had a smashing time.  I wish I had more time to write about it, but I am trying to dig myself out from under a pile of backlogged work.  Basically, we stayed at a really nice mom-n-pop small hotel called the Casablanca that was FABulous…personal service, nice rooms, free treats throughout the […]

FREE AT LAST, FREE AT LAST THANK GOD ALMIGHTY, WE ARE FREE AT LAST!! I can’t believe we have gotten here. After eight years. Eight years without a president, eight years of a beady-eyed, cretinous sock puppet. Eight years of his brutal masters gutting the Constitution and showing contempt for our lives and our rights […]

In the name of GOD, do your duty

More than anything else today, we need the spiritual solace that only Atticus Finch can give us. Americans (and I’m talking to you here, Commonwealth of PA) need his words, his guidance, and his call to just once look outside of their little boxes of hate, ignorance, and fear and see the greater good and […]

Perish the man whose mind is backward now!

Monday, November 3rd, 2008

Gawd, are we THERE yet?!  I can’t take the angst a minute longer!  Merciful Elvis, make it be over. *sigh* Just one more day.  I know that it’s not just me; lots of people are at the ends of their ropes.  Here’s something to get us all through today and tomorrow.
