You know you've been in Key West too long when...
No matter, as we are out of here. It's been great, but time to get off the island. We're moving to DES MOINES. Technically, our home will be in Waukee, Iowa, but more on that later. So anyway it's why for the quiet lately. More on Christmas (yet another thing to love about Key West - where else in the world runs our of Christmas trees in the 2nd week of December, and why are artificial crappy ones $200? We have an artificial Christmas topiary. Photos later.)

Here, but not for long.
Do not allow yourself to become enraged with the NYT Sunday crossword until you look up what a rebus crossword is. w h a t e v e r. I don't know why my self image is tangles up in the thing.
Sudoku is evil.

What To Do When Your Husband is Out of Town.
During commercial breaks from House, watch for the first time (I swear, I never have. In fact, I can admit that when my husband is watching sports I indulge in things like The Girls Next Door ((have I mentioned that my girlfriend is a web girl for Playboy? I have NOT! and HAPPY MARRIED DAY YOU)) and also I watch Bravo TV but who doesn't?)
Seriously. Dancing with the stars almost made me feel like I needed to go to confession.
Back to House. I miss my husbands sensibility.
I know that simply by virtue of purchasing wine in a box that I am putting myself into a segmented consumer class, and your product was on sale making my taste even more questionable, but I am fairly certain that wine which is not being marketed as actual vinegar should have the color "Specimen from a Kidney Failure Patient.
Were this a glass of expensive tawny port? Perhaps. Try again, but I won't.

Maybe I am a redneck, or married to one.
I love a Sunday New York Times reading Bubble Bath Taking Man!
I actually started writing this entry with a story, and now, after writing that I love a bubble bath taking NYT reading man, I can't remember what funny thing I was going to type.
OH! That is where all my Philosophy 3 in 1 grapefruit is going.
He just reminded me that my parents read this.
(commentary on the culinary skills of his new wife, Ron White give his dinner to his dog.) So Sluggo starts licking his butt. My wife comes in and says "what is he doing?" so I told her "I think he's trying to get the taste out of his mouth."
(commentary on the difference between men smelling things and women smelling things.) So he leaned over it and took a whiff and said "whoooeee! That would knock a vulture off a gut wagon!"
Which, if you read my previous post, was my freezer yesterday.
4th on the 5th and the 5th.
Woke up at 6am this morning, having not yet adjusted to the time change (it's been 5am thrice this week). But it is 1:53pm, and I have (drum roll please) FINISHED THE MFING NEW YORK TIMES CROSSWORD. In record time, for me. Fortunately I am married to the encyclopedia of all things sports.
And in case you're wondering 92 down is "Agamic: reproducing without fertilization". This will make you able to solve the puzzle. You're welcome.

Makes a Momma Proud

November 1st, on the second. Of course.
Since I spoke earlier of power outages and all manner of connectivity problems, I am doubling up for NoBloPoMo.
So Halloween! Jake and I did nothing. Nothing for Fantasy Fest (which for those of you unfamiliar with the celebration is like a nakeder, drunker version of Mardi Gras), nothing for Halloween. It was great - no pressure to come up with costumes, no last minute panic for babysitters.
I did, however, take the time this year to sew the bird girl a costume. Alice in Wonderland. Seeing some of the costume choices other mothers allowed thier children, (Seriously, some of them would have made Paris Hilton blush.) I was THRILLED when the bird chose this pattern. Except I didn't have a sewing machine. So I bought this:
It is a sewing machine smaller than a beer! I don't even drink beer! And if I did drink beer, it would not be this beer!
I'm not going to win Project Runway on it or anything, but it was fine. See that rack of clothing in the background? It is the ironing I am supposed to be doing instead of writing things on the internet.
Key West Fun Fact! This is what they do to each other (and cars, and household pets) after they are done trick or treating. This is why we let her go with her friends this year. I didn't grow up with shaving cream as a part of halloween, but it's big down here, like black beans and rice.
Happy Halloween! Late!
