Chipper and Chirpy

Well. I performed this evening in front of a small group of complete and utter strangers. And obviously I survived to tell the tale. Eschewing my operatic Italian piece (“act Julia Child meets Miss Piggy, diva style” my instructor said) . . . I performed my favorite, the “Happy Working Song” from “Enchanted”. I played […]

Nope.

Last night as I was putting Minion in his sleepsack, a spider slid down between our faces, from one of the leaves of his mobile. Nope. The past two mornings, I’ve been woken up around eight (a crime in itself) by a scrambling and scratching coming from my bedroom ceiling and behind the walls. A […]

Cheaper Then

I seem to have been thinking . . . Recently, and frequently . . . About The Good Old Days. I think about vehicles. About how when my father traded me my little 1995 Honda Civic, for a one year old 2002 Jetta. I had loved the new design of that little chug-a-chug, especially the […]

Disney2014: On the Boardwalk

Last entry, we went through the BoardwalkVillas . . . this one, we’ll go outside of them. Disney is a big fan of veneers.  If I want to be cynical I could say that the veneers go everywhere from their buildings to their customer service.  But in this entry we’ll stick to BoardwalkVillas. The front […]

Sing, Sang, Sung.

One more interruption before we get back to the Disney recap. One more “surprise!” for our anniversary was . . . voice lessons. Ha.  I know. He could really get himself into trouble for that one, couldn’t he. But truly, he’s always annoyed that I won’t sing around him.  I sing to Oliver all day […]

The Prodigal Pixy

I have returned.  The Prodigal Pixy. Celebrated my birthday and Mother’s Day.  Knobby and Minion gave beautiful gifts. Two weeks from hearth and home.  The first of these trips was basically my own version of a drug bender.  No dogs demanding care, nothing to do but sit in a well-appointed hotel room with a fluffy […]

The Ten Million Dollar 1995 Magnavox Television

1. When you say “foyer”, do you pronounce it as “foy-yay” or “foy-yur”? 2. I’m always looking at real estate. Be it active listings for sale, or just valuations of properties of people I know, Zillow and Trulia are my best friends. One listing I perused yesterday baffled me, so I made Knobby look at […]
