Recent highlights and lowlights

Highlight: Celebrated Lincoln's birth by achieving a fiscal victory. (It is what he would have wanted. Also I avoided being racist that day, which I think he would have also found pleasing.)Lugged self out of bed and drove to Provo for the Shade Clothing sale. Spent $35 on a pile of tops that were regularly priced at $140. Didn't have to elbow anyone in their shiny, shiny white teeth but was fully prepared to.

Highlight: Much love, enthusiasm, and sandwich hugs from darling Savvy & Ethan on Monday. The sandwich hug alone could probably restart the heart of a dead person. Or Ann Coulter.

Highlight: Savvy loves the darling pink stripey legwarmers I'm knitting for her 5th birthday. This is good, because the last thing I made her was a purple poncho that looked like it had Cheeto crumbs sprinkled on it. I doubt it's seen the light of day since.

Lowlights: Suspected the legwarmers might be knitting up too big--like, way too big. Tried them out on her over the weekend and the only way they will ever fit is if she suddenly develops gout. She tried to convince me that they were great while staggering around the room stiff-legged in order to keep them from falling off. Had to pull the whole thing apart and start over.

Highlight: Ran into Mormon Child Bride (with bonus guest Spouseman) at my library yesterday. It was our first IRL meeting, and there was much squealing and giggling and making of plans to get together to eat foods and braid each other's hair. Yay!

Lowlight: Dealing with the drunken man who wanted to get on the public phone every 10 minutes to bawl drunkenly (read: loudly) about how his mom was the most awesome woman who ever lived and he doesn't understand why we're treating him this way. (We were telling him he had to leave because we were closed.)

Lowlight: Dealing with the part where pretty much all children everywhere have somehow ingested crack-water over the weekend and now are all pinging off the walls. (Note: I did not say peeing off the walls. Yet. We'll see what today brings.)

All this hair braiding and fawning makes me want to gag. Perhaps a good way to judge whether someone is a powerful writer or not is if what they write causes physical reactions in the readers. If so, then you are a GREAT writer!

Spitfire, you are a punk. And you're just jealous because you weren't there on Monday for the sandwich hugs. Neener.

Happy Almost Birthday, though!

I loved the Ann Coulter comment. I was going to get her book for you for your next birthday! Maybe one of Obama's biography's will have to do. Short read.

Shorter than the stimulus package to be sure.

Coulter is a BABE!

Nemesis said... [reply]

Coulter looks like the Other Mother on Coraline.

Cooldad, I hope you are kidding about Coulter being a babe. Nem, I don't know why you are so sensitive by comment, I think it's more like a compliment!

I'm sorry I misunderstood you, Spitfire. Perhaps I am a good writer but a BAD reader. (The reading-too-fast thing gets me every time.)

Learning how to knit is definitely on my to-do list. Also on my to-do list? Finding out about when Shade has that type of sale!! Coulter comment was priceless...

Spit. I love that moniker Coolmom gave you.

Of course I'm serious about Ann-the-Babe-Coulter. Long blond hair, good looking, right-minded, it irritates Nem...What more could you ask for?

I laughed out loud at the 'suddenly developed gout' part. The guy who is here re-wiring our walls thinks I'm insane.

You had to pull apart those beautiful leg warmers? I think I might cry. Sav is so cute.

I'm glad someone else thinks Ann Coulter looks like a corpse.

Azúcar said... [reply]

I did NOT make it to the sale, to answer your question. Why? I don't remember. I should have gone.


Ann Coulter isn't a corpse, she's just undead.

"Coulter looks like the Other Mother on Coraline."

BUUURN!!! Haha!

That was really funny. Coulter is (as Dad would say) a wackjob.

I'm glad you and Mormon Bride met :) Kinda jealous!! I want to start meeting a few people from my cyber world friends!!
