Friday Hodgepodge: aka yet another lazy bullshit post
Proof that I have nothing particularly cohesive on my mind this morning:
Exhibit A: My New Boyfriend
I saw him from across the room, and our eyes locked. I walked toward him, mesmerized by those deep brown pools with their endless lashes. I spoke to him, and he approached me enthusiastically. As I talked, he seemed to dance to the rhythm of my voice. My girl was witness; and as I spoke, she said: “mommy, I think he’s a grown up. Why are you talking like that?” But he liked it. It was all he could do to stop himself from crashing through the barriers that separated us. He had such a strong, powerful face. I was smitten with his long, elegant nose and cavernous nostrils. Strangers commented on the connection between us, it was undeniably love at first site.
Allow me to introduce the love of my life, Dallas:
He lives in a hamlet, as any King should. His quest is to celebrate beer. I shall be his Queen.
Exhibit B: My Kids Are Dorks
When I grabbed the camera, she said: “blog?”
Remind you of anything?
Exhibit C: The Apples Don't Fall Far from the Tree
How else is one supposed to simulate the earth shaking?
Exhibit D: Laptop Lunchboxes
I loathe and abhor packing lunches. It is the bane of my very existence. My kids do not like to eat the same things, and neither is what one might describe as agreeable when it comes to eating things that they consider unacceptable. So it’s always been a big pain in my arse to put together two healthy lunches that will actually be eaten. But I have recently made an investment that has changed my life! Who could resist eating a lunch that is presented so nicely?
They come home empty. And we’re saving the earth to boot. You’re welcome, Al Gore.
Exhibit E: Spud McMod
That's a nice one.
Have a great weekend, everyone!
