No time left for youuuu

I had a really good time last night, and now I gotta rush out the door again.

I am a gadabout lately.

Dick Whitman met the pets, and Edsel jumped all over his allergic self 4502848 times. I had given a bone to both dogs so they'd stay amused, but Tallulah took BOTH bones and trotted off under the table. Edsel did not even try to get his back. Who is beta?

Anyway, we saw our foreign film and acted all sophisticated and then we came back and I served him some sparkling wine that my mother told me to get. Because I am sophisticated. We sat on my front porch, where there is little pet dander, and Dick Whitman said, "That is one enormous bug on your porch, there."

It was the BUG! The bug that's been in my house! I mean, not the SAME bug because Tallulah and her corn-nut wreath ate that one, and if you didn't read me yesterday you will think I have gone berserk.

Oh, let's face it. You have thought I went berserk ages ago.

I screeched about how that was the bug, and Dick Whitman said, "Let me get my camera. You can show your blog readers." And he dashed off to his car and got a fancy camera.

"You just…go around with your camera everywhere?" I asked. I mean, I know I'm one to talk, but this was a fancy thing, not my stupid iPhone.

Anyway, the only person who will enjoy this photo is Faithful Reader Siren:

BIG BUG
Isn't it disgusting? And how filthy is my doorway? And look, it needs painted down at the bottom. Like I'll ever go near that part of my door again, knowing this creature was over there. But see what I mean about the antlers? Ugh.

So other than having to look at a giant menacing bug, the evening was lovely. And I continue to not be murdered. Win!

Okay, I have to run. June. Never being home since she turned single.

At one point, I was sort of hot, in a "she's 27 and probably a 7" kind of a way. Now I'm old and have to develop a charming personality. Guess how that's going.

  1. Lisa – you are right! He is getting it from both ends – colonoscopy AND endoscopy. A two-fer. Sorry to hear your plants are rotting. I can’t imagine that!
    Sadie – oh my, I am so sorry to hear about your niece. My sister had a stroke at age 31. She recovered beautifully with no after effects. I know it’s hard to get through, but I’m sure your niece will receive excellent care. Keep us posted!
    Is Betty Draper the one who wears the FANTASTIC dresses?
    There has been a Gypsy Wedding marathon on today. On the recommendations of everyone here, I have watched about 4 episodes in a row. UNbelievable!

  4. Sadie, thoughts for your family.
    Your team name should be Team Tramp. I love it. Now I want to know if I can change parties? I’d like to be a bold new single gal out about the town and not a shy skulking underbitey pup. Aw, who am I kidding, I’m so the underbitey, earses Edsel type.

  5. Off topic here, but with all the recipe sharing foodies here, just want to recommend the movie Julie/Julia to anyone who has not yet seen it. We just REwatched it(third time I think), and it gets better with each viewing. Really a sweet, fun movie.

  6. Thank you, everyone for your thoughts and prayers. It means a lot to me. From what I understand, there is still a clot in her brain that must be dissolved, but there is also some talk of possible surgery. Sounds like a long road ahead before rehab can even begin.
    Texas Kari, so glad your sister recovered completely. Gives me hope.

  7. Sadie, The tricky and frustrating part now will be the hunt for WHY she had a stroke. Be prepared for scary theories like MS cardiac disease, ALS, etc. They will do many tests to rule these things out and to try to prevent her from having any other strokes. For my sister, they first diagnosed her with a rare blood protein disorder but later revised their diagnosis and determined that her stroke was caused by a medication she was taking. All of you will need patience while the doctors figure it out.

  8. Yay, Texas Kari, glad we could bring you over to the Gypsy team!
    Sadie, saying a prayer for your niece right now.
    Amy from MD-I live in KY but have the ants in my mailbox too! What’s up with that?! I sprayed it with bug killer but it didn’t do any good. I’m at a loss. I look like someone who is insane beating my mail against the sidewalk to get rid of the ants, after I retrieve it every day. 😉
    June-I can’t wait to hear about your new fella!

  9. My husband gets our mail most days, and he is not so fastidious with the ants. I picked up an envelope last night and there was an ant crushed to it. It was GROSS.
