Of Blankets and Bills

One thing that has been a slight bone of contention between Joe and me is my unfortunate tendency to take the covers with me when I roll around in my sleep, leaving his ass out in the breezes. This unfortunate tendency makes him grumpy, as it would anyone. Part of the reason this occurs -- at least I'm hoping that part of the reason this occurs -- is the fact that we have a double-size...

Long Weekend Love List

I'm heading out shortly for the start of my three-day weekend (thank you, veterans), so here is the Long Weekend Love List: I love: long weekends seeing that the end is in sight being courted by a recruiter Rice Chex Starbucks Gingerbread Latte (aka crack in a cup) the thought of snow meeting Joe for dinner Ayr saline nasal spray being warm getting caught up on word count (which I haven't done yet) seeing little...

Chef John described each course, and the brewery reps described the beers that were paired with each dish. First course: Mixed green... Read more →

Much cheese... Read more →

Pictorial Love List

Wow. It's Friday already! Since I'm busy putting words on virtual paper for NaNoWriMo, I thought I'd use pictures (mostly) for this week's Love LIst. First, though, I love Joe. This morning, as I was shuffling around the kitchen sleepily scooping coffee into the pot, Joe looked down at the headlines and read: "Tokyo Stock Markets Plunge... AS GODZILLA DESTROYS THE CITY!!" I love that guy. Other things I love: Candy canes! Fans! The Song... Read more →
