The Wednesday Special

Wednesday, May 31st, 2006

OH! You green haters are NEVER going to guess what I’ve was doing yesterday. Oh-yes indeedy do, it’s time for more of the Garden Report. Except there isn’t a whole lot to really report other than my little rose garden seems to have survived the long weekend (although it was a little wilty with the heat) and my veggies are vegging along. Did I say that my peas have sprouted? Well they have. They aren’t tall enough to have to wrap in the fence but I have peas. Yay!

The End Of The Matter

Tuesday, May 30th, 2006

Riiiight…MARGE-ar-in. I can’t believe it took me two days to figure that out. I had to spell it in my head before I said to myself, “Wait a minute…if you spelled mah-gahr-EEN out what would it look like-HEY! They’ve been talking about margarine the whole time!” Kung fu awareness right there folks. Although in my defense it’s hard to recognize words that are syllablized all weird like if you can’t see them written down.

New Rule: Places Mosquitoes are No Longer Allowed to Bite

Sunday, May 28th, 2006

Mosquitoes0506.jpg
1. On any finger or toe, but especially no biting on the knuckles or close to the nails.
2. On the ear, and especially not the cartilage-y part of the ear. Is there even drinkable blood there??
3. On or near the eye and most importantly, NEVER ever ever EVER as long as the sun rises and the moon sets ON THE EYELID!!!
4. On the palms of the hand or the bottoms of the feet.

I’ve been bitten in all of these places at one time or another, but never in three of the four in one feeding. Consequently, it would not bother me overly if I woke up one day to discover that all the mosquitoes on the face of the Earth had disappeared. Preferably by spontaneous combustion.

Tally-ho! It’s up north at the crack of Way Too Damn Early for the Q house, but I usually do a yearly Memorial Day Picto-blog thing so here you go. It’s 2 am and this is us leaving the house. Bye downstate!

The One Where Joy Is Redeemed

Friday, May 19th, 2006

I’d love to start out today’s blog by saying I went home, ripped up the garden area, did all the mixing of the dirt and whatnot, put in the borders and planted all my poor plastic bucket bound plants but alas. It rained. Novel.

The Title I’m Not Creative Enough To Snazz Up

Thursday, May 18th, 2006

Should I get the boring garden-y stuff over first so you all can suffer through it and then read the rest of the blog or leave it for last so y’all can skip out on the blog early? It’s like the old band-aid thing: One short sharp agonizing jerk or infinitely numerous painful little bitty pulls? BTW: that’s one of the Blank White Cards, just in case you wanted to know. Or cared. Or whatever. Onward!

900 Miles Away From One

Wednesday, May 17th, 2006

Check it out: 900 entries. I’d be all clever and whatnot but I am at a low ebb in creativity today. Ergo, I think I’ll just ramble a bit and then move on.

Eight Degrees Above Freezing

Friday, May 12th, 2006

Heh, it looks like this blog has turned into the all garden review. Except I’d have to actually have a garden, which I don’t yet because ARRRGH! GodDAMN fucking weed trees and Cthulhu boring bush roots (and a shout out “Hi!” to whomever is dropping by from a k-12 school in Hawaii. Heh).
