I just got back and have all sorts of things to tell you, but it looks like Henry might have broken his kitty leg. It's all swollen up. I can't blog because I'm going to take him out back and shoot him. Welcome back to the South! No, no. Marvin is getting his carrier out … Continue reading I just chugged in from D.C. and boy is my sanity tired
I'm in D.C. and I'm having a capitol time! Bah! The train ride was kind of fun. I got to sit and watch the world go by. The only part about the train is, why do other people have to exist? The old lady next to me was just fine. I had no issue with … Continue reading Don’t get Madison, but I don’t Lincoln to anything in this one. Quit Reagan on me!
You know how Dooce is forever being asked to appear at the White House and talk about blogging, so she's always flying first class to D.C.? Yeah. No one asked me to show up, and I am taking a train--regular boring-person class. Nevertheless, I am leaving for Washington D.C. to spend the weekend with my … Continue reading Mrs. Gardens Goes to Washington
Who can't get enough of herself? I am going as a Chilean miner for Halloween. Would somebody get me out of this hole? What do you mean this is my regular life? Do you know what the Chilean miners probably wore a lot of? Earrings. Remind me not to wear those tomorrow. We are having … Continue reading I’ve been a miner for a heart of gold
It's Wednesday, which means it's time for Pieces of Wisdom. Today we are gleaning our wisdom from the great and powerful Marvin, my spouse of 12 years. And three months. And nine days. But who's counting? Yesterday I asked you all to ask any burning, itching questions you had for Marvin, and they appear below. … Continue reading Pieces of Wisdom: Everything You Never Wanted to Know About Marvin
Today's Pieces of Wisdom question actually has nothing to do with the water bowl, but I just added water to that damn dog bowl for the 20432qsju%!942th time today and I am sick and tired of it. Are they licking Lot's Wife? How many times am I gonna drag out the Lot's Wife reference whenever … Continue reading Pieces of Wisdom: Tired of fixing the water bowl
Marvin just emerged from the bathroom and said, "I can't stop releasing the hounds." Pretty. Anyway, I'm tired. I stayed up late to watch that depressing movie where Meryl Streep has the cancer and her daughter is Renee Zellwegger. The worst part of that scenario would be having Renee Zellwegger as a daughter. I took … Continue reading In which June loses her skin
Faithful Reader Paula H&B sent me this photo of the best Halloween costume ever.
Today, Edsel had a play date. I know. My pal Emily, over there at Chatting at the Sky, got her own puppy snickerdoodle some weeks back and I have been obsessed with meeting him since minute one. Bringing Edsel over was an excellent way for me to obsess about HER puppy along with my own. … Continue reading Play Dog
I have so many things to tell you about what I have bought lately. Before I begin, though, can you tell me why? Why would Marvin have left one lasagna noodle in the package? One. He left one. Did he think perhaps later I'd like a teeny-tiny meal? That maybe I'd invite Thumbelina over for … Continue reading Conspicuous Consumer
Some of us in this house are getting along like peas and carrots. You know, generally. I wish you understood how much TIME these two devote to the playing. In the house, out of the house, in the bed at 1 a.m., it doesn't matter. They do this ludicrously wide opening of the mouth thing, … Continue reading Project Save This Marriage–Goals.
OMG. Look at who totally listened to us like we were important.
I think this might be our most popular Pieces of [Wardrobe] Wisdom yet. Yesterday I put poor Faithful Reader Hulk on my blog so you all could pick apart his wardrobe. Wisdomly-y. As I type this, there are way over 100 comments telling him to do this and that. I have no idea how Ima … Continue reading Pieces of Wisdom Wednesday: Humiliate Hulk Edition
It's Tuesday, which means Tallulah is at day care, and also it is Pieces of Wisdom day. This week we are having an extra-special event, in which we all Queer Eye my pal Hulk. Even if we are straight women. Hulk and I went to high school together. We were on newspaper staff--he was sports … Continue reading Pieces of Wisdom; Disrobe Hulk.
Really, I will tell you all about my trip. Eventually. The most important thing is that in our 20-million-hour car ride home, Marvin and I played "I went to the store" and here are the ludicrous things we got. (Did you ever play this in the car? You list something you got at the store … Continue reading I went to the store…
We went to Savannah. We had a good time. Then it took us NINE HOURS to get the 350 miles back home. Did I mention I hate everything? More later, when I do not want to kill everyone with a machine gun.
I do not know how I can leave all this cuteness and that need to sweep the floor, there, but Marvin and I are going on a short vacation. You know, as part of Project Save This Marriage. We will be back Sunday night, and yes someone is coming to take care of the animals. … Continue reading Sans June
Fortunately, I got home at a decent hour Wednesday night and was able to give you your results from this week's Pieces of Wisdom question. Unfortunately, everything else went wrong. Well. Not everything. The Manson family didn't bust in and write "Piggy" on my wall or anything, but it was a flusterating evening, as Marvin's … Continue reading Pieces of Wisdom Wednesday. Yes, I know it’s Thursday. Live a little.
Yer old pal June worked until 10:45 last night, and has to be at work a half-hour early today. Because sometimes life is full of regrets that way. This means your old pal June did not have time to sift through your highly scientific Pieces of Wisdom answers today. I apologize. We are going to have to … Continue reading Ain’t no other man. Except when there is.
I am typing you with a Henry on my lap. Yes, I AM still wearing Marvin's cowboy robe. Sue me. Do you know what I love? Henry's one white tip on his kitty ear. Anyway, it is Pieces of Widdom, and who adores herself for saying "Widdom," and today's question was inspired by cranky Marvin. … Continue reading Pieces of the Wisdom, there.
