I don't know why on Earth I should be excited about that, as my weekend will kick off with spending a ludicrous amount of money to have restaurant food delivered to me just so I don't have to go out, and end with cleaning my house so that I can actually get shit done next week. But nonetheless - Bub and I will be in the same place for 48 hours and I'll have someone to answer my ridiculous questions as they pop up.
Yesterdays: do you think dogs vote? It's a valid question. There are two humans, two dogs and a cat in this house and I assure you the dogs have no idea that we were dealing with an election. (Though I can also assure you, had they known, they would have barked for Obama. They are two black lesbians, after all). I don't see why it's not entirely possible that when Phoebe runs up to our gate and seemingly barks at the trash can that that's actually her pre-designated voting booth for mayor of dogtown.
There once was a man at a party who tried to hit on my husband and then steal his shoes. We are now friends because that is how I roll. He posted this to my facebook wall yesterday, I clicked to see what it was as I was getting my shoes on, and quite literally fell off my couch from laughing. Enjoy.
As it is the month of November, a time to be thankful, some bloggy things that I am thankful for.
I cannot believe I haven't thanked her for this yet (in my defense, I thought I had and then realized this morning nope, nope you didn't because you were having problems signing into her blog). Apropos of just her being awesome, Ms. Sunshine over here sent me a care package, complete with smarties (all gone) and a chap stick with a monkey on it that I pull out regularly to talk to. Ms. Sunshine, you made my day. Thank you for making my tummy happy and for my new best moisturizing monkey friend.
Thank you for all the lovely comments on my post about my Dad. It makes me happy to think it spoke to anybody who has lost a parent or knows someone who has. You know I'm not one for goop and introspection usually, so it's a little weird for me to have stuff hanging out like that. Thank you for being so kind.
Some of ya'lls nominated me for the Liebster Award. Amazing. (Also, and I can say this because Bub is German, I love how even happy words in German sound a little hostile). I can't explain to you how tickled I am when people seem to appreciate my blog. It seems a lot of people have been nominated for this - so instead of re-nominating you, I'm thinking of every once in awhile on here doing an entry strictly on a blogger that you should be reading and why. Ich liebe dich.
And somehow - somehow! - my list of followers seems to have crossed the 100 threshold this last week. I am simultaneously giddy and wondering how many of you should be heavily medicated.
I swear - when I started this blog I thought it was just going to be me, talking to myself about my uterus and occasionally throwing in the unrelated rant. Seeing as how I do this every day in my mirror anyhow, I thought, what would be the harm in doing it online?
But no, instead I have gotten to meet some badass chicas who are always so funny, thought provoking and kind. I was expecting to talk to mirrors, and in the way of mutual experience I kind of am - only the mirror has opinions and her own brand of hilariousness and kindness that I could not expect. (And those of you mysterious ones who don't comment - please insert yourself into my life as it makes it harder to hit on you inappropriately if you don't). Thank you for taking an interest in my weird little life. I am so thankful for you.
And as getting sappy makes me uncomfortable, let's just say... Boobies. Poop. Fart.
Oh! I did solve the economic crisis yesterday, it's a super awesome plan. Ready?
Three words: Gay. Bridal. Registry.
**Edit - also strangely enough I checked my traffic for the first time in forever and I'm getting a bit of traffic from Facebook? Anyone know what that is? (Don't get me wrong - I am delighted that anyone would be linking to me anywhere - just curious.. Other than you Jenn who I know did but it doesn't look like you... And Jenn, that one guy who commented on it... My word, my word...)
