You want random? Oh, I'll give you random!

For those who follow it (or did when I was better about it, ahem, ME.) I've updated my gardening blog. I'm waiting to hear back from the MG department to see if this can count towards my volunteer hours, whee! You can find it here. I'll be tinkering with the links all day - I want to get every state's extension agency posted. The plant finder link is a cool tool, as well.

In other news, I needed some gloves for working out, so I ran to Ross (dress for less!) the other day and scored a pair for FORTY-NINE CENTS. And they were nice fleece ones! I grabbed the other pair they had, too. \o/ I also picked up a new ball cap in a lovely lavender, girly shade. Which leads me to this:

Dear Titleist Hat,

We've been together a long, long time. Since the days Penn State hat fell apart on me, in fact. You're white, and not that color matters, because it doesn't! It doesn't. But because you're white, you made my head appear larger. Which, given that I have a Chihuahua head on a bull dog's body, it helped. Plus, you matched all of my exercise togs. You have a snap closure in the back, which makes wearing a ball cap and a ponytail a thing of EASE. I shaped your bill into a perfect letter C, and you've made me feel sporty, which I've adored. Because I'm kind of not.

I've loved that all of this about you, to the point where... You're falling apart.

Okay, so you've been falling apart for a while. I've refused to see it. The little tears here, the hanging threads... All I saw when I put you on was the pristine beauty that fit my skull perfectly. And as I mentioned, teeny wee-head, so that was the most important thing. And you didn't even come from the children's department like all the others! Remember the 3 Day? How you stayed on my head in blasting winds? Or what about all those times gardening, when you kept my nose from freckling? Ha ha, we've had some good times. And let's not even go into all the bad hair days you've spared me. *frowny chick smile*

Because of your golf association, I got hit on by a lot of older men, which skeeved me out. But I know you would have chosen the super hot guy at the UPS store to hit on me, if you could have. I appreciate that. You kept sweat from my face in the summer, and maintained the heat in my body in the winter. You covered up that weird zit once - srsly, thx - and yesterday, when I burned my forehead with my curling iron, you didn't laugh. You just covered up the mark and made me believe people would think it was a hickey. I needed that. (And honestly, who burns their forehead with a curling iron now a days? Sheesh.)

But, it's time to let you go. New Purple Adidas is flashier. More youthful. Her brim and cap actually connect all the way around, and she has no gross sweat stains. It's cruel, I know, but you should know the truth. I am totally trading you in for a younger model. If it helps... she puckers a bit over my ears, and you never did. Not once. *bites knuckle* I'll never forget you. Until I actually do, because you're a freaking ball cap.

[insert picture when camera phone decides to cooperate, zomg *Cartman "kehm ehhn" noises*]

All my love, except for what now belongs to Purple Adidas, and the love that always stays with Milagro Tequila, and... minus the portion that resides in the pantry waiting for me to open the new jar of chipotle salsa and eat loads of chips,

Stoney

*sings "I'm All Out Of Love"*




My dergie Sally has black toe knuckles. And one black toenail. The others are white. She keeps giving me her feet so I can verify, is what I'm thinking. My coffee mug got a scoop of Swiss Miss hot cocoa mix and THEN coffee. Clearly, today is a day for newness and innovation. And in conclusion, happy 8th, honey. <3

Happy Anniversary. Just wanted to post that. I haven't even read your above posting.... just wanted to send you happy thoughts of love. Now, make sure you show him how hot his body is. Oh how that makes me laugh. "Show me! DO it, do it. Do it."

That is disgusting.

Also, he is in TOLEDO. So I'll show the hot guy at UPS instead, 'kay? 'Kay. :D

Happy Anniversary!

The hat/cap thing is critical, at all times. Sorry the person who doesn't have exactly the cap they need.

Julia, who is currently enamoured of my pale-blue cashmere stocking cap, but that's because it's ugly outside

Thank you!!

And seriously, the hat thing. People MARVEL when they see how weetiny my skull actually is. (I have a lot of hair that hides it) A good cap is ESSENTIAL. I have a cute wool bucket hat for looking slightly better than "I've just finished scrubbing toilets" that I love. I fear the day it goes out of style....

*wriggles in time with your bee-you-tea-full singing*

She needs me to witness her feet! Have I told you she's a leaner? Like, you sit down and she scoots over close and does that "whumph" exhale noise and leans against your legs. Heeee!!!

Mmmmm, chocolate coffee!! Throw a naked man in there and you have a triumvirate of GOODNESS.

So much of life is unreliable, so it's very reassuring to know that I can always count on you to be completely random.

Thank you!! And I've not been able to throw the hat away. It's sitting on my shelf, hee!

I don't know that I could bring myself to paint her toenails. I'm... not that sort. Ribbon on her collar? Yep! (Oooh, but no bandanas. I'm not that pet owner, either. *g*)

Happy Anniversary!!!! ::throws confetti::

And happy new hat day!! ::blows one of those tooter horns with the feathers:: Pweeee!

Tooter. Sounds like "cooter." Heee. COOOTER!!! ::acts like a drunk Sharon Stone::

YOu know, I can't find my fave winter hat, the one that's a felted knitted cloche that is made of slightly metallic black yarn, so that because it's felted it looks like it has melted snow on it except for that it isn't wet.

COOTER! Never not gonna be funny... (I wish I knew how to knit a cap - I need to pull out my pattern book and teach myself how.)

Happy Anniversary! (and hot chocolate mixed with coffee is LOVE!)

Also--Ross! I love that place!

Thank you! (Isn't it? YUM)

I don't usually like Ross, because I get hives from the stress of the HUNT, zomg. But when you need something simple, PERFECT!! (I'm the rare woman that hates shopping for myself, is all.)

Thanks for the link to the gardening blog. Very nice. Thanks for the tips on picking out plants. I've never inspected the roots before at the nursery and it might have saved me some disappointment.

And Happy Anniversary!

*cracks up at your icon*

Thanks for the well wishes, and I'm glad you find the gardening blog useful - it's pretty dry right now. I hope to get some more info up this weekend, most likely Sunday.

Checking the roots is one of the best things I learned, really. If the roots aren't healthy, the plant isn't, no matter how pretty the flowers look. It just won't perform well.

Well, if it helps, I think mine might be toast, too. I didn't get it covered before the ice hit. But it's easy to pull it out and plop a new one in come March... :)

Happy anniversary! Really late! I was in Las Vegas, at a wedding, so I sort of celebrated with you. Only, two days later.

Heh - thank you! That's very sweet. Yay, Las Vegas! That can be a fun place!

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
