break out the holy water

If anyone asks, I'll be gouging my eyes out and getting re-baptized this afternoon. You may notice that my link to the "Desperate Irish Housewife" blog is gone. It was a great blog. I found it through Ann Coulter. Just another Christian conservative blogger with an interesting take on politics. Well...about a week ago the blog site went down. I chalked it up to a technical problem. When I clicked on it this morning to see if the problem was fixed and a new post was up, PORN popped up. Fortunately, I was able to close the browser before I saw much of anything...but I still feel like I need to take a shower. Needless to say, the link has been removed. All of this reminds me of that song we used to sing in Sunday School:

"Oh be careful little eyes what you see
Oh be careful little eyes what you see
For the Father up above is looking down in love
Oh be careful little eyes what you see"

I think I need some chocolate...

put down the 2, carry the 1...

So I spent the morning meeting with our accountant. I like our accountant. She's a QuickBooks genius, Wolfpack fan, and member of the vast Right-wing conspiracy. It's the ACCOUNTING that I hate. Too many accounts, debits and credits galore, and - inevitably - my boss will want some weird report that involves me re-classifying every paycheck for the last two years.

OK - I've done the career thing. I'm ready to marry a man who's independently wealthy, so I can have kids and stay home. Well...maybe not have kids yet...but definitely stay home!

I'm so glad cold weather is here! I spent yesterday curled up on the couch in front of the TV. Hannah and I finished watching the 10-hour "Forsyte Saga." It only took us a week...although we were quite diligent. It was pretty good. You were right, Rach - the part where Fleur screams "JAAAAAAAHHHNNN" for 10 minutes was the best part. I don't see what all the fuss about John was. Michael was the better man...and I'm glad he got the girl in the end.

Today I got to wear the scarf I bought in Sienna. Thinking about Sienna has given me a ridiculous traveling urge. Anybody want to go ride a train around Italy for a few weeks?

snowy day

It finally snowed! Not enough for me to stay home all day, but enough that Oozey and I got to sleep in for a few hours. It's amazing how she's so cuddly in the bed, but as soon as we get up, she's back to her furniture-scratching, freak-out self.

Gotta hot chocolate's ready!

Dreams do come true...just ask Hannah...

Pass the Tissues

My nose is red from all the blowing

The trash has tissues overflowing

I shiver even though I'm hot

So sick of mopping up the snot

I'm taking drugs and drinking fluids
Perhaps I could be healed by Druids

I'll kill my brother, and break his knees

For passing me this foul disease.

Be a Hero

I am Spider-Man

Quick and agile, you have killer instincts (literally). And that kind of makes up for the whole creepy spider thing. I was bored at work and in need of a new post. Spider-man kinda surprised me. I suppose it is my gift...and my curse.

Calling all Arminians...

I suggest we all read Ephesians 2 and meditate on the sovereignty of God.

bath time

So maybe - just maybe - this should be on the house blog...but it's taken up a good portion of my day today...and that merits a post here. I've been on the phone coordinating the resurrection of my great-grandparents' cast iron clawfoot tub. We have to take it to the fixture store this week to pick out fixtures (which are going to cost about 10 times what normal bath fixtures cost), then get it back for the plumbing rough-in in a few weeks. Then, we call the man who's going to refinish it, and he'll come get it and keep it for a few months (and charge me about 5 times what a regular bathtub costs). When the house is nearly finished, he'll bring it back and install it.

Long story short - when the house is finished, I'll be renting the bathtub out by the hour so I can pay for it. Book your bath now.
