If ever I own my own house, it will be decorated entirely in "Artists I Enjoy". My mother will probably disown me due to the extreme design clashes (and because the room I let pussinboots design will turn out to be the Room With A View of Hell), but it will be the MOST AWESOME HOUSE EVER.
Making Everyone's Day A Little More Surreal:
Gabe and Anne were having a long, convoluted discussion about the saying "You can pick your friends, you can pick your nose... but you can't pick your friends nose" as I cooked. There was a lot of face-poking involved.
Unable to contain myself any longer, I stuck my head into the room and said: "You know, you can pick your battles. You can pick your nose. You can pick your friends. You can't pick your relatives. However, due to an arcane bylaw in the Houston charter, you can battle your friends for the right to pick your relatives' nose."
They were stunned into silence for a full thirty seconds.
My left foot is all half-crampy. This means I will be waking up at all hours tonight with foot cramps that will not go away. These are more annoying than leg cramps, which I can simply stretch to be rid of fairly easily. These are nasty little things that make walking painful but make doing nothing even more painful, which results in a half hour of limping about cursing quietly while wishing my foot muscles would untwist themselves so I could go back to sleep. Wheee!
Have made cheesy-broccoli-spinach dip that is DIVINE. It involves a lot of cheese, broccoli, and spinach. I suppose that explanation was rather redundant. But it is DELICIOUS, and everyone loves it. I WIN!
Nicole and her friends are obsessed with Puzzle Pirates. Soon they shall join Kevin (who now looks like his piratey avatar. How cute is that?) and I and we shall sail the seas together! Playing at Puzzles! Fighting 'Bots! Forgetting to Do Our Homework! Arrrrr.
