Today is a sad day over at the Gardensalad/GonnaEatThat household. Marvin Gardensalad's grandmother died. She was approximately 797 years old. Seriously, girlfriend was old, and if her pictures from her youth are any indication, it seems like she had a full, fun life. But no one wanted to see her go. Grandma Sophie was about … Continue reading Sad news
I am back from Funeral Tour 2008. Did you miss me? We flew out of Charlotte on Monday, only to land in Detroit and learn of ANOTHER death as soon as we got there, so we went to two funerals in a 24-hour period. Marvin Gardensalad's grandmother's funeral was really very nice. They captured her … Continue reading Good night, Detroit!
Guess who's visiting? My father! He arrived last night. It was kind of a last-minute thing. Guess who loves to cook? That'd be my father. He is all up in cooking, and has all kinds of cooking gadgets that no one actually needs in real life. Anyway, since I had to work all morning, and … Continue reading There is a lot of “guess” in this one. No Guess jeans, tho.
Last night, Marvin Gardensalad and I went to a lecture about Mt. Everest. That lecturer told a lot of tall tales. BAH! Did you know that the people who actually live under Mt. Everest have a whole different name for it, and then when the British people decided to start rushing over there and climbing … Continue reading Climb Every Mountain
Is there anything that inexplicably makes you all happy and cozy? Or really depressed? I once read that Gloria Steinem hated a radio playing in an empty room. Apparently that plummeted her into depression. I hate the sound of sporting events on TV. Ugh. Those whistles, the announcer, the crowd. I am depressed just writing … Continue reading Another good one? I like it when you see a lamp lit through a window.

Thanks, everybody. I agree that meditating on this job is a good idea. I AM supposed to be meditating this month, remember? I picked a bad month to do a slow-down thing. I picked a bad week to stop sniffing glue. So, I got the Holy Tuesday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Holy Saturday bulletins … Continue reading Puppy Love
So, Miss April Fool over here only managed to fool a few people, and I am thinking I need to retire for a few years. Wait for people's defenses to be down. So in the meantime, I went about the rest of my day. A man named Mac Davis came over to fix our dishwasher, … Continue reading The Getter Got Gotted
How much do I heart y'all? It is nice to have friends, even tho you wouldn't know me if I spit on you. Thanks for cheering me up. I do feel better. My favorite comment was the woman who said if her husband had a bad day at work, it meant someone couldn't see, but … Continue reading Feet and teeth
Perhaps you're thinking, "I wonder if that June is ever gonna post anything today." Perhaps you are living your life and you hadn't even noticed I'd posted nothing today. Today was a busy day. There was very little health going on. Here is first thing this morning, when everyone jumped on the unmade bed. Did … Continue reading Put off posting to persue pasta, pesto and pansies
I was all comfy-umfy in my leopard pajamas when I remembered it was May 1 and I have to do my measurements today. Crap. You'll be thrilled to hear that I did remember to bring a tape measure with me in this otherwise spartan household. So, my weight went down three pounds, I think (click … Continue reading Lula and Hardee’s
Did anyone else see that full, lemon moon tonight? Oh, it was beautiful. I know I totally sound like my mother right now. Whenever I am around my mother, she is forever pointing out things in nature. And she calls me Harry--June, which is my stepfather's name and then mine. "Oh, Harry--June, did you see … Continue reading Ruby Rosie Lemons
Sorry I didn't write yesterday; it was a run-aroundy kind of a day. My stepsister and her spouse are coming this weekend, which is going to be fun for them since this house contains one chair, no table, one bed and 400,009 boxes. At any rate, I was preparing for their visit and all of … Continue reading Duck, duck…
Well. One way to be sure to eat well is to have out-of-town guests come in. Yeesch. My stepsister and her husband came to visit us. Normally they live in LA. We took them to IHOP, cause we're classy. We took them to a minor league baseball game, because they have a black Lab who … Continue reading The Voracious Knee
I hate to say it, but I had the best salad today at Chick-Fil-A! Chick-Fil-A is a fast food restaurant that I think is only in the South. They sell chicken things. Which I guess you could glean from the name. Unless you thought hot women sold filets there. At any rate, I had to … Continue reading Chick filled, yay.
I am home from work, and Bitey the Pit Bull is in here with me. She is spread out on the concrete floor, cause why is it always so hot in the South? You never saw Scarlett O'Hara looking perspire-y, except for the day Atlanta fell, and anyone would be sweaty if your whole town … Continue reading Riding the wagon wheel coffee table with Clark Gable
To anyone who was worried I might be crappin', I'm fine. I had only given up meat for a week when I had my carnivorous extravaganza. When I was in high school, I spent many a dinner at my best friend's house. My friend's brother Buddy and I spent an inordinate amount of dinnertime thinking … Continue reading Some bloggers do giveaways. I do poop-ins.
I'm blogging at work again, which is going to make Tee decidedly nervous. I'm on my LUNCH hour, what possible harm does it do to blog at lunch? I guess I will find out when they fire me and I have to wear a barrel. Why did people wear barrels? Weren't there potato sacks or … Continue reading Nuttin’, honey
I came down to the basement to blog, and now my mother is sitting ONE INCH from my head, in the rocking chair next to the computer, hoping I can come up with a dinner plan for tomorrow. Okay, has she MET me? If it were up to me we'd all be eating Lean Cuisines … Continue reading Say yes to Michigan. But don’t say yaaaaaa.
A friend asked, "Did your decline in readership begin about the same time as the purchase of your webcam?" Okay, SHUT UP. My webcam ROCKS. It is perfect for me. All I need is me, writing about me, while taking pictures of me and putting them up on what I wrote. About me. Besides, my … Continue reading Chili Cheese Dog Park
