Let there be light

Wednesday, September 30th, 2009

As promised, here’s a pic of the new bathroom fan/light.  Pictures of other new electrical updates in the bathroom are here. And here’s the new improved window in the kitchen. You likey?

OMG, Thursday and Friday sucked! BW spent all of Thursday like I said, crawling around in the crawlspace and cutting holes in the bathroom ceiling.  While he did that, I spent the day in the basement face down in grime cleaning up after the destruction wrought by the window guy.  But by the end of […]

Those people at Pottery Barn are geniuses. Got the big Fall/Halloween/Thanksgiving catalog yesterday which featured what may be one of the most appealing images I’ve ever seen. Had to share it, and spread the inner peace: *Ahhhhhhhhh*  So Zen.  I bet that little dog is so idyllic that he doesn’t even smell like “dog.” The […]

When it rains, it monsoons. So there’s already the craptacular weather to endure.  Now it has also turned into “Destroy My House” Week.    Though we have no one to blame but ourselves. For a long time, BW and I have wanted to replace the rickety old windows in our basement (they are SO drafty…may […]

Yeah it’s that time. Time to bring on the bitching. Time when I should be hanging up leaf garland and curling up with a hot cocoa but instead I am sweaty and sticking to my bloody tanktop. The time jokingingly known as “autumn” in Shittsburgh. I am sick. Sick of wearing summer clothes. Sick of […]

Man Zoo (Extended Cut)

Thursday, September 17th, 2009

Hello again, long time no see.  We had a reasonably nice time, except that BW got a TOTALLY BOGUS speeding ticket.  Otherwise, we visited a few vineyards and saw amazing Watkins Glen park.   I thought the casino where we stayed would be more interesting in a John-Watters “ohmygawd can you believe these trashy people” sort […]

Your weekly perv

Friday, September 11th, 2009

I am going to be away the early part of next week.  BW and I are headed to the Finger Lakes region of NY state for a few days.  The really interesting part is that we’ll be lodging at some nearby Indian-owned casino that BW’s parents just luuvvvv to frequent…so much so that they get […]

Medical chart

Wednesday, September 9th, 2009

Whew.  I believe that things are slowly returning to normal here. Late last week BW finally got a pack of meds to get his poison ivy under control, so he’s good. We took Gulliver to the vets and were given some anti-inflammatory/bacterials to calm his digestive tract down, plus some sort of kitty Immodium.  He […]

So how was everybody’s Labour Day weekend? Ours was pretty nice.  Had to do yardwork on Saturday, chopping down the dead flowers and herbs in readiness for fall.  Good riddance, I am SO done with plants.  Hate them things.    Just want my yard to be coated with snow so I don’t have to think […]

Did you ever know that you’re my hero?

Thursday, September 3rd, 2009

You’re everything I wish I could be… Dude in the story below is the Wind Beneath My Wings.  Go ON witcha’ bad self sir! YOU are RIGHTEOUS!  Stand UP to the evil Breeder Horde, o my Brother!  *fist pump*  My favorite parts are in bold. Stranger allegedly slaps crying child in store (CNN) — A […]

Where can I get a loaner Hazmat suit?

Wednesday, September 2nd, 2009

Oy.  So much for relaxing and slacking off after the bridal shower. Overshare time!  First off, little Gulliver has had diarrhea since Monday.  Seems fine otherwise, I think he must have just eaten something that disagreed with him.  But he hasn’t eaten anything but his usual foods.  My pet theory is that he has developed […]
