2013 In Review (7361)

I got this annual report today from WordPress. The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog. Here’s an excerpt: The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 90,000 times in 2013. If it were an exhibit at the Louvre Museum, it would take about […]

Will It Shred (7357-7360)

I’ve had quite a weekend, nothing fun I assure you. My dad and step-mom are arriving shortly so I need to get this up and go. Tabby is still in England so I have Chiquita. I’m in love with that stupid dog. This video is for her. Sorry about the strange framing. Chicky is having […]

Drinking With the Dog

At first glance this video appears to be an irresponsible, drunk post. I was drinking with the dog. But just wait until the end. By the way, Blue makes that sound all the time. He likes to come up to me in bed while I am sleeping and do that in my face to get […]

How Cats Get Away With Being A$$holes (7335)

The Fucking Cat has gotten into the toilet paper, yet again. Don’t chide me about this. I have no problem keeping the shower door closed. It’s someone else in this house who has the problem. Yet still, she continues to be a part of our family. Why? WHY?! Here’s why. She’s damn cute. Here she […]

God’s Gift Card or Devil’s Debit? (7310-7311)

Yesterday I felt like I had been hit by a car. It was most likely due to sleeping on the couch during my all-night poop-vigil and doing what Dr. Ken discouraged most, sleeping on too firm of a pillow. The sofa pillow is the worst culprit. I got up from almost no sleep at all […]

One More Day (7293-7304)

I got this little reminder today, as if I wasn’t counting down the days. I must have entered that into my calendar a year ago as a supreme act of optimism. I am as surprised as anyone that this blog didn’t suffer the fate of most blogs: a strong start followed shortly by a subdued […]

Thanksgiving Day Post (7259-7261)

It’s 6:37AM and I’m in my new room watching the sun come up while writing. It’s a dream come true! I have spent more time in my new office than I could have every imagined, and it’s not even done. This room has morphed into a tiny house inside a large house. You may have […]

The Wu Plan (7160-7170)

Lonny and I ran into Wu today at Ozo. OF COURSE we bought his Earl Gray (I know! What the hell?) and he was all gracious like, “Really guys, you didn’t have to buy my ($2) drink.” Seriously? We were all, “YOU SEWED UP MY FRIEND’S FACE! FOR FREE!” He will never buy anything as […]

Day Five: Rounding the Bend (7113-7123)

Today started bright and early at 7am when Shé showed up. She wanted to start early because she had to leave before noon to babysit. It was pretty obvious that she wouldn’t be able to get the painting done today but she wanted to put a dent in it. Then she got a call around […]

Day Four: It Gets Worse (7102-7112)

It’s day four of the It-Gets-Worse-Before-It-Gets-Better Project. It got pretty bad today. Everything that was once in the eBay room is now off the second floor and was all over the first floor. I can’t live with my house torn apart so I moved everything to the sunroom. We got our first major snowstorm of […]
