I've been busy doing as much NOTHING as possible, so I'm remiss on updating the status of fAngus's recovery. The torture continues for him, although just before vacation he was able to drop off the awful antibiotic (the one that could burn a hole in his esophagus if he didn't eat immediately after and make… Continue reading fAngus Update and Vacation
This isn't a real post...just a quick update because I haven't posted for a while. To be honest, I haven't had much that's terribly interesting to write about. The last two weeks have been a series of naps punctuated by lake time, inappropriate shopping, work, and surgery (in that order). I took an excellent socially… Continue reading Vacation and Indignities
I have a couple of posts of things I found cool or horrifying or interesting on my trip...mostly to keep track of them myself. I TRIED to journal while I was there, I swear I did. I faithfully brought one with me and even made 1/4 of an entry on day 1...and then I fell… Continue reading The Daily Mile and Other Random 7am Things
Yesterday, I went on a tour of the Hoover Dam. The tour guide on the bus gave us all sorts of nifty Vegas facts, including the following: Las Vegas Boulevard (aka the Strip) is the lowest point of the valley. No. Doubt. So, my first time in the Sodom and Gomorrah of the United States involved only… Continue reading 3 Days in the Debauchery Den
I took an extra day off this weekend to be all social-like and prove I'm not a zombie hermit. My most excellent family member (who hates being called an aunt because we're more like sisters, and so I'm accommodating her whining request by calling her "family member") came down to drink and be stupid go… Continue reading Vacation Conversations That Probably Shouldn’t Be Repeated
Due to some strange and fun mixup, Husband and I went back to our room* after dinner in our fancypants Mexican resort and discovered this. Husband and I will be married 10 years this Halloween. While it's all romantic and shit to say "aww honey, it feels like we're newlyweds" we all know that's not true… Continue reading Inappropriate Vacation Picture!
This is not a real post. I'm going to sunny gorgeous Cancun tomorrow for a week with the recovering husband (dude, after the horrible fall/winter we had, it's time for a fricken cocktail on the beach!). Depending on his vice-grip on the iPad, I may or may not have an opportunity to post rude pictures… Continue reading Merida, she is NOT (a teaser-trailer for the Demented Disney Princess post)
I spent a whirlwind weekend in the Olympic Peninsula of Washington. True to form, I saw cool and fucked up shit. THIS ISN'T KANSAS!!*Actually, I have no idea whether there are assless chaps in Kansas. Don't assless chaps exist everywhere now? I didn't expect this hanging next to my head over the breakfast table,… Continue reading Because I find weird shit in every corner of the country, that’s why.
I wasn't ready to come home!! Portland, Oregon is quite possibly the only place I'd move barring Ireland and Duluth. Since Dave's interested in neither of my other two options...we may be hoofing it out to the west coast after all, someday. Preferably in Cannon Beach, where the water is gorgeous and the town is… Continue reading Work is Hell!
