According to D'Name I live on a swamp...seemed like a fitting scene to me...

We went out to dinner with a couple tonight...plus an additional friend. It was actually very fun. My husband doesn't understand signals. I wanted to leave at hour 3.5.

I got to stop for a Dunkin' Donuts coffee on the way home, though. Such a treat.

I like Shatner on Boston Legal, though.

Maybe he was having a good time and ignored the signals. And to make it up to you, stopped for coffee.



The biggest lie that I tell myself daily..."I don't need to write that down, I'll remember it."

Regular coffee or Hollywood coffee?

You are just trying to dig yourself out of the hole you created the other night. I know your M.O.

It's okay. I forgive you...temporarily...

Tinny? Are you saying my house is tinny like a junky car?

The drywaller saw them. He did a lot more than I expected. I ended up giving him $700 for doing an awesome job. He did a nice clean up job as well. I think he may come back to do additional sanding. 3-4 days job. He amazes me. His work ethic and stick-to-itness for a 77 year old is inspiring.

If I sell and buy a new house, I will worry about all kinds of stuff I am sure...cleaning will always be priority #1. I expect bleach will be heavily factored in the equation.

He ignored the signs because he was having a good time and he says I always cut things short. I never want to over-extend my stay, plus I don't believe in tying up a table for 4 hours.

I drove home because I didn't have any drinks...so I stopped.

I grew up near a swamp. We liked to wander around the hidden paths. A plank bridge to a little island where my dad used to deer hunt.... My brother free-hand mapped the whole thing one summer..

I lived near a (natural?) sandpit...with a pond. The sandpit was cool...we'd do nature walks there. All the bad boys would ride their motorcycles there. We slid down the steep hills in the winter. The pond is where we'd ice skate. You could find pussy willows and bittersweet. A good place to make out, too.

And he wore a beige outfit that was crisply pressed...you know it probably got washed every night. He cleaned his tools after every day then he'd WD-40 them so they wouldn't rust. He had milk cartons of tools and he crafted special contraptions...like two huge pails in which he turned over and put a board over, but it was notched so it didn't slide back and forth.

He didn't clump the stuff on...did several light coats...this room is pretty big and he stripped out the bad plaster tape/drywall and re-secured some of the drywall with drywall screws the first day, the second day he taped and mudded, the third day created perfect corners with a corner tool and did some sanding and picked up the drop cloths and vacuumed!!!

I know it was a spelling misadventure.

However, if speaking in a foreign language, do not make the mistake of saying:

"Soy embarazado" when you mean to say, "Soy embarazada."

It is the cruise ship thing.
When we have been on cruises, I wash my hands about every 10 minutes or so, plus they have hand sanitizer dispensers everywhere.

it is in outbreak mode in the Boston area, and yes I have had the symptoms. First day saw 4.5 hours of vomiting. More than any of my drinking binges in college.
