Back to Normal

Or whatever is normal for us...

We have a new washing machine coming on Thursday.  I had to resort to hand washing my unmentionables today.  I Know, I Know.  Washing them in the machine is supposed to be bad.  Frankly, I've never noticed an increase wear and tear on them from putting them on Gentle.  I mean really, how long are they supposed to last anyway?  Since they were sopping wet, I decided to pull the drying rack up to the deck thinking they'd dry quicker in the sun and breeze.  Of course tonight's the night the neighbor decided to stroll back here and have a beer with us.

Speaking of my panties, I lost my eyeglasses the other day.  We spent the better part of 2 days looking for them.  Tearing through junk drawers, scanning all surfaces, looking behind furniture and under sofa cushions.  I figured they'd show up the minute I went and bought a new pair.  Luckily, it didn't come to that.  I was getting dressed the next morning and pulled out some underthings to wear, and there they were.  Tangled up in a thong?

In exciting GrowDammit news, we made salsa verde!  From our own tomatillos.  The peppers were store bought, but we do have poblanos coming along.  They were still just a tish too small to pick.

Note, we have harvested our first green bell pepper!

They are sticky, when you pull them from the pouch?

Grilled, marinated tofu burritos with black beans and GrowDammit Salsa Verde.  *drool*
Random lair decor...

There's a new poll up in the Herb Smackdown.  This should get good.

I got an email from my new BFFs at Verizon Support.  They are pulling some of my tennis channel options.  Of course, my bill won't be going down.  If I actually watched tennis, they'd be hearing about it.


  1. I have written this three times already. I wouldn't call that 'Back to Normal'!

    Aren't everyone's lost things tangled in thongs? That's where we always go to look! ha!

    Your dinner looked so amazing that I might even be able to get Mark to try tofu. He'd be all about the black beans, but I'm not so sure about the tofu. Well, unless there was a way for me to have it tangled up in a thong...

  2. Brings a new meaning to edible underwear. Tell Mark not to worry, Ted had his burrito with Carne Asade = beef. He would've tried the tofu, however. Just serve it with a side ambience of a rack full of lingerie.

  3. Or, perhaps, a rack covered in lingerie?

  4. Well at least now all of the neighbors know that granny panties aren't in the wardrobe! Pretty funny shit Man.... I'll tell ya what WASN'T a joke...

    Those fuckin' burritos. If you can't give us props on anything else... We can cook; I'm not just talking about... We can cook pretty good food... No... We could easily sell anything that we decide to whip up in ANY restaurant. The Spawnette is going to culinary school so I guess that it's true when they say that the apple never falls far from the tree. (She's more into baking and pastry.) I hate baking. I was stuck as the baker for this French place that I worked and I FUCKIN' HATED IT! Everything is so precise. It teaches on to be patient though. I still hate it... Anyways.

    So is it Labor Day... Or Memorial Day... I always mix the two up. At any rate.... Happy Labor Day! (I looked it up.) I'm gonna celebrate today with my 'Ol friend Mister Lawnmower. I'm gonna do a little spruce up on the yard while I can... The leaves will be falling soon and we have this fuckin' sycamore tree in the back that makes a tee total fucking MESS when it starts to shed it's leaves. This damn tree is so nasty... Even the BARK starts falling off of it... Sheets of it; It's actually a cool tree to look at... Plenty of shade.

  5. I'll send you the Spawnette. She'll inform everyone of your wardrobe choices before they even fly all over the yard! She gets great pleasure out of watching people's reactions; especially uptight, conservative ones!

  6. I'm an uptight conservative...

  7. ...who likes to see his woman in thongs.
