blahdiddy haddiddy

When I can’t think of an appropriate post title I’ve decided to just make up bizarre rhyming words that pop into my head and use those.  ‘Kay?  Good. Does anyone know how to stop time?  ‘Cause I’d totally do it right now to avoid the end of this lovely long holiday weekend!  There is just something about going back to the-place-that-shall-not-be-named after an extra long amount … Continue reading blahdiddy haddiddy

thanksgiving day

Just got up from a nap so I’m a bit groggy.  I hope everyone had a great holiday.  Ours was nice.  I watched bits and pieces of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade this morning, as always.  I never tire of that parade for some reason.  We had Thanksgiving dinner at our house for the first time and I think we managed to avoid a Griswold-like holiday … Continue reading thanksgiving day

project runway

I’m watching Project Runway.  Love this show!  I didn’t start watching until about midway last season and then I missed the grand finale because we went on vacation.  But tonight, I’m watching the first episode of season 4 and so far it’s as fun and crazy as I remembered and hoped!  why is my keyboard screwing up right now????!!!!???? Christian reminds me of Pauly Shore…is … Continue reading project runway

that time of year

Some random thoughts about this time of year… Is Thanksgiving the Black Sheep of holidays?  It seems like we’re going from Halloween straight to Christmas, if you go by the decorations in the stores and the commercials.  We don’t really have plans for Thanksgiving Day this year so far.  We’ll do our shindig at The Accountant’s grandmother’s this Sunday.  Since we don’t have plans I’m … Continue reading that time of year

so i’m back

Back from what I’m not sure.  Here’s a run down of the last few days. The Accountant installed an invisible fence for Coop.  We didn’t exactly follow the training plan that came with it but it is working nonetheless.  It’s a big relief too because he was getting to where he would just wander off across the street sniffing whatever it is that dogs sniff, or … Continue reading so i’m back


As you can see, the last few days haven’t exactly been hot and happenin’ around this here blog.  I just have nothing to say.  I guess I could talk about the Adventures of the Coopinator and the New Invisible Fence.  Or Finn’s Adventures in Microsoft Word Land.  Or the Elephant’s Misadventures at Sears While Getting an Oil Change/Tire Rotation.  But none of those topics really grab me … Continue reading meh

saying no

I said no tonight.  I am one of those people who have a hard time saying no to various invitations.  Go ahead, ask me to come to your Tupperware/Pampered Chef/candle/jewelry/guilt-you-into-buying-something-from-me-because-you-are-sitting-in-my-home party.  Or ask me to your second cousin’s third wife’s bridal shower/housewarming party/baby shower where we will play idiotic mind oozing games involving pinning the diaper pin on the baby picture or making a veil out … Continue reading saying no

…love caught in the slammin’ door…

Driving home tonight I was transported back to the days of tightrolled jeans, six inch teased bangs and friendship bracelets.  Paula Abdul’s “Straight Up” came on the radio and danged if I didn’t remember every single word of it.  I knew where all the “oh oh ohs” went and the “ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba byes” too.   Gotta love those late 80’s. … Continue reading …love caught in the slammin’ door…


I feel all weird and stuff yo.  Like I’ve been kicked in the gut, emotionally speaking.  I’d usually reason this away as pms but the timing is off for that to be the case this time.  Just feel mentally icky.  Today wasn’t the best of days to tell the truth although the later part was better then the first half.  I took the day off … Continue reading icky-persnickity

fall day

Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.  -Albert Camus I think autumn is the most beautiful season.  Today I took a few minutes and sat on the damp ground amidst the crispy brown, yellow and orange leaves in my backyard.  I decompressed and let the remains of a bad day fall off of me and swirl away in the wind along … Continue reading fall day

on to november

Another All Hallows Eve is past and I have buckets of leftover mini 3 Musketeers, Milky Ways, Snickers, gummy fangs and mystery candy to eat my way through.  Lord help my waistline.  We didn’t have as many trick-or-treaters as usual.  I’m thinking maybe it was because it was on a Wednesday night and a lot of churches probably did their own thing for the little … Continue reading on to november
