Coupon Valid for: One Romantic Walk

March 28th, 2009

Alex redeemed one of his Valentine’s Day coupons today…for one romantic walk.

We brought Corona.

Anyway, we realized that not only do we have the ugliest colored doors in our neighborhood. but also the ugliest grass and plants – which is obscene because it’s a townhouse and we’re all supposed to have essentially the same landscape…not the case, I assure you.

Then I got the evil eye from a dad because his kid was wearing those halloween day-glow skeleton pajamas…and I laughed at how adorable it was. And I wanted a pair. Apparently my “I’m laughing with you” laugh sounds just like my “I’m laughing at you” laugh. Whatev.

Then we ran into the world’s meanest most awkward mini shiba inu owner…she doesn’t even deserve capital letters.

So we make it to the mailbox and not only do we have no mail -start writing us, thanks- but Corona decides its the prime spot to crap. I didn’t bring a bag. Our neighbors are watching. FML.

So I find someone else’s junk mail on the ground and as I’m carefully maneuvering away…a 4 year old starts harassing me.

Then we run into ms. mini shiba inu again. And now we know where she lives. Bahahaha.

Then as we’re turning the corner to our house, we realize we have an indescribably creepy neighbor and the two 8 year old girls next door just became very near and dear to our hearts.

I feel sick. I’ll be keeping my eagle eye on him, thank you very much.

Very romantic walk…

Boots Magoo

March 28th, 2009

Devil Cat is back…with a new and improved name. Boots Magoo.

Th first time Devil Cat came around she just bolted into our living room whilst I was sleeping and Alex tossed her onto the patio where she patiently awaited my allergy attack.


She’s been back every day since. She sits and stares at me from the patio. Ugh.

Well, Devil Cat was crashing our ping pong party tonight…and she’s pregnant. So now we feel guilty, so we fed her, and decided to just let her live on the patio, hence naming her Boots Magoo. Corona most definitely is not a fan.

(Don’t worry, Magoo and I had a heart to heart…she knows whats up)

We’re going to stock up on my favorite children’s chewable Benadryl and play with the kittens until they’re old enough to give away. Which we will…interested?

Packin Heat

March 26th, 2009

We went to our concealed weapons permit class last night.

I’m exceptionally good with a gun.

Alex isn’t too bad.  ;)

We’ve also decided we have an immense need for a large standing stuffed bear to keep us company at home.

I would also like to thank Gavin Degraw for making this all possible.

Stella Artois

March 23rd, 2009

Stella is still alive! I have a theory that it’s because I dutifully talk to him everyday and give him nicknames. He feels loved which gives him a reason to live. Which is good, because I’ve become way too attached.


But I think the feeling’s mutual. His eyes light up when I walk in the room.

We're back!

March 23rd, 2009

Panama City was a blur and on the way back we took the scenic route and I’ve decided we were meant to live in Apalachicola. And we saw a VW bus on the road too, so it was obviously a sign.

Then I turned 21 and Corona hung out with me poolside so we could catch up on our sexy tans. Who cares if dogs aren’t allowed…clearly, I don’t.  Then Alex, the Dutiful Husband that he is, made sure to be even extra marvelous. He artfully created a strawberry masterpiece in lieu of a boring cake and it was so adorable. And thoughtful. And that’s why I like him so much.

Then we went camping at Turtle Beach – where the pelicans were absolutely out of control – and I demanded a rum drink from the bar and demanded to be carded. Woo 21!

Then we went out to a nice birthday dinner and I wasn’t carded. So in retaliation, we stealthily left with the martini glass. And a fork, compliments of my favorite little brother…

Kentman's 21

March 8th, 2009

I baked Kent some cupcakes for his birthday. I made him some jello shots too, but he was having none of it, so that’s just completely irrelevant.




A can of root beer was in the middle…although I had a grandiose plan that involved many, many  miniature liquor bottles.


Somewhere along the line I missed the discussion on how sparklers can not, in fact, be used as candles.

It didn’t change my mind.

Treasure Island

March 8th, 2009

Saturday was beach day.

Add a homemade slider and an acoustic guitar and it’s life-altering sublimity.




March 8th, 2009

We bought some lovely plants last week. Spectacular plants, if you will.

There’s the Bromeliad


And there’s the Cactus…


And there are the succulents…


And there’s the yellow thing…


And there’s the cute little one in the kitchen


And there’s the mother-in-law’s-tongue that we mistakenly thought was aloe in the dark


And there’s the jade plant…


And there’s the purple succulents


And there’s the VENUS FLYTRAP


Surely they’ll all be dead soon.

Venice Beach

March 2nd, 2009

On Saturday we took our lovely pups to the Venice Dog Beach…


…Naturally, they were the most popular dogs there.

I think this place might be some form of Heaven.
