June. Off the list.

It's my friend Lucy's birthday today. She is one of my TinyTown people, and I keep meaning to get her this one specific gift but it requires driving to Charlotte and I have not had the wherewithal to do that.

Lucy
Here she is on her wedding day back in whenever. And I am telling you she is just as gorgeous today. And has less gray hair than me, which irritates.

Anyway, I called her, and said, "What are you doing on your birthday?!" "Not much," she said, "but this coming weekend my kids and grandkids are all having a party for me. They won't let me do a thing and I don't even know the guest list. …But I guess you aren't on it."

I'M TOTALLY NOT ON IT! I AM NOT ON THE GUEST LIST!

Who is irritated? What you gotta do to get invited to all the hot parties in TinyTown? Everyone hates me. The fact that I met Lucy's kids precisely once is beside the point. I WOULD HAVE DRIVEN IN for this shindig.

June. Ostracized by TinyTown since 2012.

Other than being blatantly excluded from everything fun, I have not much going on, over here, and for that I am grateful. I finally invoiced everyone for the work I did all month and you'd think I were a rich man, daidle deedle daidle daidle daidle deedle daidle dum, with the me not invoicing. Oh, money. That pesky stuff. Who needs it?

Today Ima weed the yard, even though my lawn guy said he would do so next time he comes. I cannot wait for him to show, though, because I have Addams Family yard with all the rain we've been getting. My dead neighbor has fewer weeds than me, and that is never a good sign. For a dead person, she gets a lot of lawn care done. And no, no one has bought her house, STILL.

Geez. I just emailed with another TinyTown friend. "Oh, yeah, I got invited," he said. "I just assumed I'd see you there."

I hate everything.

P.S. Oh crap. I just looked on the calendar and realized it's also Roger's birthday today. The woman who gave him to me knew the day he was born. Happy birthday, my sweet giant kitty. Tell dead neighbor I appreciate her lawn if you see her.

  2. Wow, I love that wedding picture. Beautiful dress, beautiful woman, and PEARLS – something I must wear every single day. Totally crash the par-TAY! :o)

  3. Actually, Lucy told me I could crash, but in fact I already have plans with …friend. And Dick Whitman. I am fixing him up with a friend of mine. I am not fixing Dick Whitman up with …friend. Because that would be weird.

  4. I remembered but didn’t want to say anything to keep from hurting your feelings. He would’ve officially been 1 tonight at 6:30. RIP Rodger Dodger. Slam the door on Mommy June today so she’ll know that you’re still hanging around.

  5. That is the cutest bucket o’ puss I have ever seen. And my allergies to cats aren’t even flairing up upon seeing his sweet fur. Usually I sneeze just looking at a cat. I agree about crashing said TinyTown party. I am sure that the party would be better with a dose of June in it. 😉

    And sweet Roger you are missed. I would even read his exploits and size to my husband and little boy. We were in love with him. He was such a magnificent boy.

    I’m singing the Nobody loves me, everybody hates me song with PJ. Let’s see, beach vacation with the Sleeping family, baby horsie with Chris and Lilly, and dates with …friend. Yep, you have definitely been excluded from the fun.
    What a radiant bride Lucy was. I didn’t even notice the little girl until Awesome Nancy mentioned her. Observant is what I am.
    Sweet Roger kitty. How we all miss him. Hope Francis, Ruby, Mr. Horkenheimer and all the others are throwing a huge party for huge Roger. Speaking of birthdays, happy birthday to Furry and Lucy. Furry, did you say today is the big 50?

  12. Oh Roger….so cute. Happy Memorial Birthday.
    Left off the party list…..so painful not being one of the cool kids. *sigh* Classic, beautiful bride, though. Do we know exactly what year this was?
    Maybe Dead Neighbor paid for the Perpetual Care Package on their yard? Bah!

  19. One of the best vacations I’ve ever taken. Not Chloe is a blast to travel with. Plus I got to meet some cool chicks in person. Tee, Fay, Sadie, Beverly are all sweet.

  20. A brussel sprout? Ick! (I’ve actually never tried one but since I hear they are tiny cabbages and I despise cabbage I have no desire to try a tiny version.)

  21. You Brussel sprout nay-sayers just amaze me. I *adore* brussels!!
    One of my favorite dishes at a favorite restaurant, and let’s be honest here, it is one of my favorite restaurants BECAUSE of the brussel sprout dish they make. I don’t know what all goes into making them, but it involves pan roasting, finely ground roasted hazelnuts and a blood orange reduction.
    It’s a little bit of heaven in a bowl.

    June, you have one of the most active lives I’ve ever known (or read) – I live vicariously through you – so it’s ok if you can’t attend one birthday party. You won’t miss anything – you’ll be too busy rolling around in all your hard earned cash!

  27. I missed all the fun yesterday. But I will tell the Jew you said hi, Hulk.
    And yes! My brussels sprouts will make a believer out of anyone, although Hulk might have been my first non-believer. To his credit,though, he ate it.
    Mine are roasted with olive oil, truffle salt, pepper, parmesan cheese and cranberries. Sounds weird, but delish.
