Disney2014: Delectable Dining

I may have been avoiding writing about Disney food because I knew it would make me hungry. Or. Maybe I just have a seven month old who has decided these past four days that he will freak. the. heck. out. if I cross some invisible line he has set for me. Or. Maybe it is […]

Disney2014: On the Boardwalk

Last entry, we went through the BoardwalkVillas . . . this one, we’ll go outside of them. Disney is a big fan of veneers.  If I want to be cynical I could say that the veneers go everywhere from their buildings to their customer service.  But in this entry we’ll stick to BoardwalkVillas. The front […]

Sing, Sang, Sung.

One more interruption before we get back to the Disney recap. One more “surprise!” for our anniversary was . . . voice lessons. Ha.  I know. He could really get himself into trouble for that one, couldn’t he. But truly, he’s always annoyed that I won’t sing around him.  I sing to Oliver all day […]

The Prodigal Pixy

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 […]

The Ten Million Dollar 1995 Magnavox Television

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 […]

Dorm Logic 101

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 […]

Moral Compass

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 […]

SkinCrawl

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 […]
