Anonymous asked: Hunson knows a lot of things, but he doesn't know bars. Rock Bottom Brewery is rather chain-like. If you want a cool little Irish pub, go down the street a few blocks and head to Paddy's. Or if you want a great old skool lounge on the edge of downtown, head to The Driftwood Room.
Here’s a quick shout-out to pitypie (Lucas), who not only has great taste because he loves The West Wing, 30 Rock, and Harry Potter, but also became my 67th follower and got me out of the sixes I was seeing everywhere!
This guy’s walkin’ down a street when he falls in a hole. The walls...– Leo McGarry, The West Wing
I must rid us of these numbers! This is post #667 now! And would someone else please follow me so I’m not stuck at 66 anymore?!
Hello, New Jersey
Someone in NJ has been visiting my blog regularly- more, even, than anyone in New Mexico. Google Analytics tells me this. Who are you?
This just in:
Barring any complications, Joe and I are buying my late grandpa’s under-100k miles Camry! I love my own Camry so much that if I were to get any other pre-owned car, it’d have to be a Camry too. I love the Desert Phantom (the name for my car), but it has enough problems that I’ll be pleased to have her off my hands. This is still an early-2000s model, too, so hopefully no...
My grandfather died on Thursday morning. I didn’t really get all that choked up about it, at first. It was very much like when my own father died- my mom came and told me about it some time before it actually happened, and that’s when I cried. I didn’t really cry the day it happened. I have to admit that I have only really bawled over one grandparent’s death, and that...
Banana Bread Oatmeal
I got asked for a third time now for the recipe for the oatmeal I love making. I can’t claim ownership of the recipe or the idea, but I have my way of making it. So here it is, in case anyone else asks (and I won’t have to retype it!). Ingredients: 1/3 cup milk 1/3 cup oats (not the quick/instant kind) 1/2 cup water (or more/less as you see fit- this helps oatmeal be fluffy) 1/2...
Joe's Spelling Issues
Joe: in other news, my genes feel much more comfortable today
me: your misspellings are comical
Joe: how do you spell the pants version
me: I'm going to start keeping a list of the funnier ones
Joe: stupid english. well I spelled it right didn't i? this isn't a miss-spell.
me: that was
me: misspell not miss-spell
Joe: it was a recognition of two words having the same sound. misspell. whatever
me: :-P I love it
Joe: gahh why can't it also be miss-spell. you mist the spelling. I bet Jane Austen would call it a miss-spell. the connexion is obvious. woah
me: I "mist" it? that had to be on purpose. whoa what?
Joe: the thingy recognizes connexion as the right way to spell the word. no read underline. I'm going to change the way I spell. Austen style for all! I mean no red underline
me: :-P I want to save this whole chat for posterity
Joe: That's silly
Your mouth is moving, I cannot hear
I don’t often think I come from one of “those” families with much drama. It’s weird to me, what has happened in the last few weeks with my immediate family. I’ll try to write about it, but if appears it’s causing more drama to have it on the internet, I’m taking it down. I try not to put this upon those of you who are just here to see photos, but I need...
