I have returned. The Prodigal Pixy. Celebrated my birthday and Mother’s Day. Knobby and Minion gave beautiful gifts. Two weeks from hearth and home. The first of these trips was basically my own version of a drug bender. No dogs demanding care, nothing to do but sit in a well-appointed hotel room with a fluffy […]
Dang it, Samsung. Now I want your new curved TV.
1. When you say “foyer”, do you pronounce it as “foy-yay” or “foy-yur”? 2. I’m always looking at real estate. Be it active listings for sale, or just valuations of properties of people I know, Zillow and Trulia are my best friends. One listing I perused yesterday baffled me, so I made Knobby look at […]
Never. Ever. Trust the “Popcorn”function of a cheap microwave. Especially if that microwave exists in an area which might be populated by possibly hundreds of people. Possibly hundreds of people who would not be enthusiastic AT ALL about being evacuated from the building after fire alarms go off thanks to one’s burnt popcorn. If only […]
At dinner tonight, I overheard the couple at the table next to us discussing the girl’s potential next vehicle. Twenty-somethings. Her: “Oh, I love my car too much.” Blahblahblah. The guy was the one pushing for the new car. Nothing remarkable there, but I couldn’t help but hear just a few details. First: He was […]
There is no better way to make your own home feel like a well-appointed castle, than to stay at someone else’s home.
Yesterday, I accomplished so much in the garage. I felt raring to return and make more progress. Until this morning, when Knobby went out there and discovered this hanging out next to the car. A gigantic. Furry. Wolf spider. Yep. I’m done. Back the Jeep out. Spray every chemical known to man, choke […]
Oh hai. I have a Zappos return all ready to go to the UPS Store, in a fit of productivity this morning, but now it’s started raining and honestly I didn’t even need that much of an excuse to put off going out for another day. In a bit of sadness over the car, I […]
Time flies when it’s the weekend. Friday afternoon we wanted to get the sidewalk finished. Knobby had to make a Home Depot trip mid-work (but it was good because Minion needed to be fed, anyway), and we didn’t finish until after dark, but . . . we finished! That’s what counts. Except . . . […]
Oh, did you think I was posting with pictures of my finished stair hall? Ha. That’s as far as it got. I’d been flirting with a cold and it caught up to me, and who wants to paint with a cold. Not me. I think Oliver has the cold as well. He keeps randomly screaming […]
