Questionable Meat (7337-7356)

Loony: Oh my god! What’s that terrible smell? Is it Blue’s face? Me: It’s dinner, motherfucker. I’m making cod cakes. Loony: Jesus … are they safe to eat? Me: Relax, I’ll cook them for a long time. These are actually really good. COD CAKES Be sure to let the cod cakes firm up in the […]

Gateway to Vegas (6802-6811)

Friday’s party pretty much sucked the life out of me. Saturday was all about survival mode. I could have been more hung over, mostly I just felt weak and sapped of energy. It was pretty much an un-parenting day where I let my kids do whatever they wanted just as long as they made no […]

Ever Victorious Iron Willed Commander (6402-6412)

I hope this doesn’t ruin things for you, kind of like when you are hot for a guy and then someone tells you that he kind of looks like your creepy uncle and all of the sudden he isn’t hot anymore … But this morning I threw on this outfit to walk the dog and I […]

Drunken Posting Redux (6344-6367)

Now that you all know that I can’t type to save my life, especially when drunk, I feel rested and recovered enough to tackle the translation of my notes from the Colorado Pole Competition. I said goodbye to David C. Owen this morning and am ready to go. His Spotting and Bailouts workshop yesterday was […]

Late Night Visitor (5796-6044)

It’s a Red Letter Day people, I did not get attacked by dogs this morning! Not unless you count getting bum rushed by a pissed off dachshund, which I don’t. Oh happy day! And my dog finally started acting like a watch dog, for once. Last summer I got up to walk the stupid dog […]

Tortures of the Damned (5767-5795)

Summer is over and … wait for it … I am going to start complaining about school. It’s not school exactly, but the homework bit is already killing me. And my kids are in first and third grade. I’m not exactly struggling with the material, but I have two stubborn and ungrateful boys who need […]

And the Winner of the Giant Veg Contest Is … (5727-5766)

Today is a post about minutia, and other things. I’m going to start with my vegetable garden. I can’t get anything to grow big. Well, not everything. The tomatoes do fine (provided the Devil Squirrel doesn’t get it first) and our greens are pretty happy. But peppers and eggplants? Forget it. It doesn’t help that […]

Low Hanging Fruit (5689-5726)

One year ago today I was doing the exact same thing. I took a pole class and then I stopped at KFC to pick up some chicken. Every Labor Day my neighborhood has a potluck and last year I had the genius idea of bringing a bucket of KFC. My reasoning was that Boulder is […]

Chickens (4676-4686)

I have chickens on the brain. For one, Tabby’s chihuahua was bitten in the face by a rattlesnake the other day. Inexplicably she named him Popcorn Chicken but I just call him Chicky. Her other pets are named Werm, Mushroom, Pugs, The Cat, and The Other Cat. Poor little Chicky weighs only five pounds and […]

Air Horn Kid (4640-4650)

Pamcakes’ son attended Sunflower Farms Camp this week with my boys. On the last day she joined me at the coffee shop to enjoy some free wi-fi and pretend to work while what we actually did was watch fail videos on youtube. Pamcakes: “Do you ever laugh at inappropriate times?” Me: “All the time.” Pamcakes: […]
