God, I am truly a moron at times... (aka: When The Hell Did They Stop Putting Handles On These Things!?!")

(Copied from the WD)

So, a few years ago, I bought the VHS of There's Something About Mary. Free with the purchase was a 'Puffy' antenna topper.


I love it, but I never put it on my car, for fear of losing it. Now that I have my new car, I decided I want Puffy on the car, but I'm still not willing to take the chance of losing it. So I just moved Heaven and Earth to find another one, so I'll still keep one on my desk, and put the other on my antenna.

Except I was just at my car.

It has no antenna.

Where the fuck am I going to put Puffy?

Busy little

In school, my son's class has been doing a unit on the Revolutionary War. Next week they are putting on two presentations: a play, and a living museum. My boy has two very different roles: in the play he is British Captain Thomas Preston, and in the living museum he is Samuel Adams. Which means he needed two very different costumes. Last week I bought all kinds of fabric, thread and buttons, revved up the sewing machine, and plunged in. I finished tonight. The costumes are due at the school tomorrow, as dress rehearsals begin then. I did the sewing, but he made it clear what he wanted for the costumes. (I personally think that Samuel Adams looks a bit more like Albert Einstein, but hey, it's not my gig.) He also has a (toy, wooden) musket, which I made him ask his teacher twice if it was ok to bring in to school. We'll see if he gets suspended or arrested!

Here are the results:

I think I need to start easing back into the real world.

I was just watching Crossing Jordan (which is set in Boston). Woody, the cop, just answered his phone, put it down, and said, "they just found her car in Medford.". Woody is from Wisconson and of course has no Boston accent, so he pronounced it: Med-ford. I yelled back at him, "it's med-fahd, you fuckin' Cheesehead!"

I need to start interacting with real people more often.

You Take the Good, You Take the Bad...

God, it's so bad. The Facts of Life Reunion Movie. It's bad. It's cheesy. It's corny.

So why do I feel compelled to watch it every time it comes on?

Holy cow...regarding my previous post...

Jonathan Kellerman answered my email :o

Dear Laurie,

Suffice it to say that Alex's life gets complicated. But Robin has not been forgotten. In fact, I just wrote a chapter featuring her quite conspicuously (in my book-in-progress.)



Eep. This age of technology amazes me. Who'd'a thunk that I could simply search the web, and in 5 minutes, obtain direct contact with this author? I'm thinking of responding, but I think I'll sleep on it, to try to come up with something halfway intellegent to say. Shall I threaten him with bodily harm if he doesn't get them back together for good? (Joking!)

Of course, I can't sleep. Again.
