We had raaaaaaain!

Not a downpour, but enough to help some of the outlying areas to the west of us where some more grass fires had cropped out. Now just give me about three more inches, and I'll be a happy lady. Ugh, my garden is so gross you guys, it's just awful. I have two completely dead trees in the landscape. Not to mention weeds and grass in the perennial beds, but it's been so unbelievably hot and dry out, that it would be suicide to do serious work. It's supposed to be nice this weekend, so I know I'm going to have stained and sore hands come Sunday night. BLISS! Also, this is my personal reminder to order my Pink Lady tree starts so I can get my espaliers going.

Today's Glee recap (oh my god, this time next week you won't be seeing that every day from me, and while I love the show and making the drinking game, holy SHIT am i exhausted) is for Born his Way and the cocktail is a spin on a regional classic, the Paloma. Mmmm, tequila. Sorry, I was born a tequila lovin' Texan, love me or hate me, it's who I am.

Also, X Factor is gearing up, and we'll be covering that, so be sure to add us to your readers, bookmarks, what have you. Loads coming down the pike, like Vampire Diaries coming tomorrow. WOOT!

It is so nice outside Imma take my Sally Derg fer a werk and let her frolic and play the German Shepherd way. She's not wanted to be out longer than for a pee all summer and now she rolls in the grass, delighted. Yay happy dergs!

We did too! A small storm followed by a light rain for a few hours last night, and a MONSOON this afternoon. Plus wonderfully cool temps. Yay!

I'm jealous! JEALOUS, I TELL YOU!!! The clouds here seem to like flipping us off, laughing and then move on. That makes me sad.

I could go for a big soaking, but man, a little drizzle that lasts for an hour? I'LL TAKE THAT, TOO.

SO CHECKITOUT that kind of terrible but kind of delightful Fairly Legal show I was watching last January? IT HAS BEEN RENEWED. And though, as always, my main interest has been in SUPERFINE HOTASS SEXBEAST SARAH SHAHI ... nevertheless the show itself is pretty fucking entertaining. I will figure out when it's starting up again (Jan2012, as with Sparty) and see how it goes! yays!

We've had no rain so far. Leaves dropping everywhere and lots of big, sorta grey clouds, but only a 20% chance of any rain. There is so much dust in the air I feel like we live in a desert.

Our lawn has always been sketchy and this summer has been its death knell. We're thinking of putting in some winter rye grass just to stabilize the soil when it finally does start raining.

I'm up in the region of the metroplex that typically gets a LITTLE something, so I've got my fingers crossed for these next 5 days of 40% chance.

And you poor things, if ANYONE could use the rain, it's central Texas. My sil and bil are going bananas - they're northwest of Austin, so the air has been horrid for weeks.

Either that or stake down some burlap, either will be a good decision. I'm sorry. :(

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.
