My Mumses Almost DIED and all You Get is This Weekend Update

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2008

Wednesday of last week my mumses went in for an ovary-ectomy because they had found “a suspiciousness” on it and wanted to take the whole ovary out just to be sure. It turns out “the suspiciousness” was the world’s most ornery cyst and the procedure took about twice as long as they had first thought it would (rumor has it that if the cyst saw a body part, it attached itself to said body part. There are a lot of body parts in the abdomen so they had quite the time taking that sucker out). I was going to go and hang out with mumses on Thursday but they kept her overnight and wouldn’t let her go until sometime Thursday afternoon. Thus, I spent the day Friday hanging with my mumses and catering to her every whim.

International Cookie War and Other Birthday Fun

Thursday, August 28th, 2008

Today is DQ’s manysomethingth birthday. You will have to ask her how old she is ‘cuz I’m not the one to leak that sort of information to teh intertubes. Nope. But I will leak that she may or may not have been born in the same calendar year I was but not born in the same Chinese year. You internets stalkers go have fun with that while the rest of us move on.

The Cats are Fired

Thursday, August 21st, 2008

Argh! I went and called up a karma backlash the other day when I glibly said “Ever since we let the cats downstairs we haven’t had a cricket problem. Wow, that was about three years ago, aren’t our cats awesome! Tra-la-la!” But of course this weekend we noticed a rather loud chirruping and lo! We have a cricket somewhere in the basement. I think we noticed the phantom bugger Friday night and it’s still down there somewhere happily singing its stupid tune.

And other random Friday things.


Tuesday, January 29th, 2008

Unlike my mumses, who has a whole “birthday Month” (March, in case you were wondering. And also heads up since there are only 31 more days to go before Birthday Month craziness starts. Believe you me; you will be thanking me for the lead time because no one is safe from Birthday Month), I’m happy with “Birthday week”. We started a little early this year on the Saturday before “Birthday Week” and celebrated in small ways until Sunday (day of). I was thoroughly satisfied. I like stringing out my birthday in little bits over a handful of days.
