Picture Imperfect

August 12, 2019

Recently I met someone as pretty as a picture.

Unfortunately they had depth similar to one as well.

This May Be A Long Day, My Computer Literally Crashed Before I Could Finish Posting This The First Time

Oh, look, the Blue Screen of Death has gotten a facelift since last I saw it, and thanks to the latest update, it wants to show off its new look every chance it gets.

In Fact, I’m Sure Of It

July 17, 2019

Today I was trying to track down a snarky quote that said, essentially, that it didn’t matter if you called them taxes, fees, bribes, etc., they were all essentially the same thing.  I still haven’t found the one I was trying to find, but I did find a site listing “inspirational” quotes about taxes.

I don’t think whoever made this site understood what the word “inspirational” means.

So It’s A Trifle On The Warm Side

Today is a typical South Florida summer day.  Out my window I can see that the sun is shining and the birds are combusting.

We Can Only Hope

Ah, Mrs. Grundy, well over two hundred years old, and still just as spry as ever.  Will she ever slow down?

Now What Was I Supposed To Do Again Today? Oh, Hey, That Looks Interesting . . .

I Was Deeply Offended (Because Her Joke Was Better Than Mine)

June 18, 2019

Lala got me some beard conditioner for Father’s Day because there have been one too many “Ouch!  Pokey!” complaints from the household of late, and I wanted to give some conditioner a shot.  When she gave it to me I found myself looking mildly askance at the brand name, “Naked Prince.”

“I prefer princesses, given a choice . . .” I started to say, but Lala both cut me off and topped my intended joke.

“Especially for rubbing on your face,” she concluded for me as innocently as it’s possible to say something like that innocently.

Fun Stuff (Part Three)

May 23, 2019

This next one was more fun for other people than for me, but a deal’s a deal.  Since it turned out we were going to be at the parks on my actual birthday, I agreed to wear the “I’m celebrating” button and a set of ears if they could come up with something that I could make work with my hat.  So after a bit of surgery on a Minnie Mouse Ear Headband to remove the bow, we had something workable, and out “Disney bedecked” I went.  I even wore a Disney shirt.

(It said “I Tried To Be Happy, But I Got Bored” and had a picture of Grumpy on it, but I wore it.  Even at the “happiest place on Earth” I’ve still gotta be me because that makes me happy.)

Snark Aside, I DID Enjoy Myself, But The Jury Is Still Out On If I Survived Or Not

May 14, 2019

At what point, exactly, did vacations become something I “survived” instead of enjoyed?

Oh . . . right . . .

So if you haven’t guessed already, we made another Disney trip last week.
