Brain Puke IV

Lots o shit swirling around in the toilet bowl that is my brain.  Let's capture some of it here.






The object underneath the bird feeder is the white squirrel; janey so nicely asked for a picture.  It was a rainy day, and I didn't want to disturb the little rodent.  Perhaps it will bring us luck, as dr. spo commented.

I AM FUCKING SICK AND TIRED OF ELECTION SHIT!

Spouse and I took a vacation from work last week.  Where did we go and what did we do?  NOWHERE AND NOTHING!  The both of us were sick; me with a head cold and him with sinusitis that required a DR visit and a medication.  What a waste!

10/15 was spouse's birthday (age 53); 10/17 was our 20th anniversary.

Tomorrow spouse and I are going to visit my niece and nephew-in-law.  I owe them a wedding present; they were married on 7/16/11.  I hand-knit them a 5' x 5' blanket.  I started it on 9/19/10, and finished it on 5/22/12.  A work of art, I tells ya!

My sister will also be visiting her daughter and son-in-law at the same time.  The two of us may be sisters, but we are so VERY different.  Put a religious rethuglican and an atheist democrat in the same room and watch the sparks fly!

It gets dark at 6:30p now; it sux!

I am starting to see more red and yellow and gold and orange trees.  It has been a bit chilly at night, so perhaps that has hastened the leaf color change.  Spouse will pick the last of his peppers and tomatoes tomorrow.  The lawn has been cut for the final time.

The house smells of fresh baked bread!

The cats are digesting their dinner by sleeping it off on the sunporch.  Something like this scene:



Meredith is on the left, Nyla is on the right.

The dozen roses spouse got me for our anniversary sit on the hearth; gorgeous blossoms (whites and pinks)!

Time now for dinner and a small drinky-poo; after all, it IS Saturday night!  Smooches to all my boyfriends everywhere!

  1. Happy anniversary you two! I too am TIRED of the election. Let's vote already and get it over with. Lovely kitties. I wish I could have some but Bill doesn't like pussies around the house. I know about about rethuglican siblings. I have two of them. One is actually reasonable but the other is a ditto head. Totally brainwashed by Rush and Faux News. God help us.

  3. A.M., I see your other half shares my b/day - separated by a mere 13 years. (I was born in the year of the dog - he, of the pig, I see.)
    And talking of things Chinese, belated congrats to you both on your 'China' anniversary.

    Re elections: I suppose we are lucky. Not only do our British election campaigns run for just 3 weeks (a month, tops), also unlike you, on the very day the result becomes clear (which, of course, is usually the very next day following the vote), the new Prime Minister moves in to Downing Street and start governing - none of all this shilly-shallying for over 2 months, giving the departing Pres' administration the chance to cook the books or leave 'unexploded bombs' all over the place. I think it would drive me mad. I can fully understand your exasperation with the entire election set-up.

    Please give the adorable Merry and Nyla special strokes from me. Like for all cats, I'd find them just irresistible.

    1. well ain't THAT a kick in the pants; spouse and you share the same day! people who also have 10/15 as a birthday are the dutchess of york and emeril lagasse (the new orleans chef); these 2 people and spouse are all the same age.

      perhaps we should have remained a british colony to prevent this election crap!

      I shall pet my pussies when next I find them; I think they went upstairs to go back to bed! it's only 8a sunday morning here...

      smooches!

    1. FUCK YEAH! fits any and all situations perfectly, fuck does.

      I FUCKING LOVE THE BITCHY WAITER! he sees the worst of society in his job. I could never be a server; the shitty customers would be told to FUCK OFF upon first meeting, and I would be fired immediately.

      come back again, yo!

  8. Happy anniversary sweetie! I agree completely with RayBeard. The Canadian election system is like the British one; usually start to finish in one month. The Americans seem to be in election mode continuously for four years.
