Summer is officially here! We launched the boat yesterday!

So Hubby and I are on our way to launch the boat when he tells me that he meant to get gas but forgot. I asked him how much gas was in the tank. He tells me that there is about 3/8 of a tank left.


What happens if I run out of gas? "Don't worry. You should be fine." But what if I run out of gas? "Then you call me." And what are you going to do? Swim out a tank of gas to me? Will you swim with it St. Bernard style in your teeth? Or shark style, strapped to your back like a dorsal fin?

Tiny smile from Hubby.

Then I turn to him and say: "I love how you take care of me."

Tiny smile disappears. Huh.

It's Been a While.....

Hello my poor neglected readers (and new readers too!). I've missed you all! Hopefully you will be just as happy as I am that this blog has returned from the land of dead blogs. Hopefully.

Anywho. It's been a long 3 years! To sum up: Moved. Went back to school. Took a massive test and became a Registered Vet Tech. Picked up a new obsession: KNITTING! Thanks to Britney. Acquired some new animals. Despite last sentence, marriage still intact.

And, that's about it! I think this time around, I am not going to focus on the minutiae of my life. But maybe sometimes I will. We'll see!

Okay, maybe a little minutiae is in order. Currently I am.....
Reading: something by Robin Hobb
Listening to: B.O.B., Gorillaz
Knitting: Lace Beret, featured in the 2009 holiday issue of Vogue Knitting (a.k.a.-porn)
More minutiae coming soon!

Containing this year's summer song: nothin' but you.

gorillaz:plastic beach
It's gorillaz. Need I say more?


Books of Booky Past: these are books that I have recently (or not so recently) read, and recommend.

the plain truth: jodi picoult
This book provided a wealth of information about the Amish community. It was wonderful.

the time traveler's wife: audrey niffenegger (sp?)
This book is like the movie Serendipity. Wow! the first time around, still pretty great for consequent readings.

Present Booky Books: do I really need to explain what this is?

dragon haven: robin hobb
Yeah, it's fantasy. So is Edward Cullen.

Books of the Future: Oooooo!



Every guilty pleasure song brought back to you! (Plus dancing!)

Nah nah nah nah so you think you can dance dance dance dance. Put me on the hot tamale train!

Ah Steve Carrell.

10 things i hate about you

Okay, I know, I know. Lindsay Lohan is a skank. But she wasn't when this movie came out. At least not in public.

This movie is absolutely hysterical.
