“Someone just drove by with their “I’m backing up” warning beep going. Made me giggle to imagine he’d put it on his truck backwards.

I did not kill the sewing machine, but I did not get more than an inch stitched before Chris shoved me out of the way and finished the hemming project herself. LOL I should stick to handsewing.

Andrew had been calling his failed mead experiment melomel. I started calling it Kaboom Juice without any context and he knew exactly which beverage I was referring to.

Voyager’s captain Janeway: “What is the source of your emergency?”
Evil guy: “Oh, we have no emergency.”
Janeway: “But you sent a distress signal…”
Evil guy: “Yes. You are the one in distress.”
Me, punning on “distress” as “this dress”: “But I’m wearing this uniform.”
Chris: *shakes head*

discordant wakeup

July 22nd, 2011

In the movie Made in America, Eddy Murphy’s princely character is awoken by a soft, inspiring string orchestra each morning. I just had the thought of Andrew waking up to an orchestra of bagpipes.

winter wasn’t quite coming yet

I live in the Pacific Northwest where we often experience the month of Juneuary, the month in which we get rains and 50 degrees around the time that the summer solstice is supposedly upon us. The rains tend to stop around the middle of July. Anyway, this day was no different.

It’s 56 degrees and raining. So of course, I’m watching the flocks of geese fly south, they’re as confused as we are as to what season it’s supposed to be.

What is this dripping from the sky? Rain, you call it? Oh yes, they spoke of such a phenomenon in the long ago times. *snickers* Sorry, it’s been a couple of weeks since we’ve seen rains like this. Pretty nice when it isn’t happening ALL THE DANGED TIME.

I think this is my favorite prank video. Everything on the internet is fake, remember that. ;)

only mostly dead

me: “So, did you hear that our fish died? Andrew buried him in the forest.”
Chris: “Was the fish just not moving, or was he dead-dead?”
me: “Well, he’s certainly dead now!”
That conversation still makes me snarf.

‎4:45am, cat: “FIX IT!”
me: “Okay, okay!” I hop out of bed and toddle to the kitchen.
Cat looks at bowl full of food. I look at him expectantly. “Yes?”
“FIX IT!” he caterwauls.
I hesitantly put my finger into the dry kibble to mix it around a little. “Better?”
He starts nibbling. “Yes, thank you, human.”
