Monday Links

TWD:Stinky Pits, Daryl Dixon armpits
So...Walking Dead. SAY NOTHING HERE. DO NOT SPOIL PEOPLE. But you can go here to my recap and tell me if you agree or disagree with my theory on the big turning point OF WHICH WILL NOT SPEAK HERE TO SPARE PEOPLE WHO HAVEN'T WATCHED YET.

Hey, have you heard of Black Sails? Because Liz has, and she's going to be recapping it. HOORAY. Golden Age of Sail? Check. Lady pirates? Check. Lady pirates in love with other lady pirates? DOUBLE CHECK.

I had the weekend to myself for the most part, as the Mr. went to the deer lease with Emily and Sally Derg. Sally is very much a city dog and was terrified of the friendly cows out there, which makes me laugh. She likes little things like cats and Yorkies. And her "baby," a stuffed otter. Ha. (But I have a freezer full of meat, which means I won't have to buy any for some time, hooray!)

And I booked a flight for an upcoming (and very much needed) trip and I have been BOUNCING OFF THE WALLS with excitement over it.

Hello, guys! It's Monday and we got to sleep in yesterday! Or you were up extra early and are still angry about it, IDK your life.

Fine! Another bout of sickness this weekend, but hearty and hale today. UGH, CHILDREN ARE NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART.

I was up early because I'd forgotten the time change was even happening! Fortunately my computer reminded me almost immediately but I had already downed a cup of coffee so no take backs.

We have not even started watching this season of Walking Dead yet. Between bike pub crawls and friends with birthdays we haven't had an evening free. Soon, though, very soon...

Yay freezer full of meat and vacation!

ha, the Mr. woke me up an hour earlier, thinking the clock was off - that I hadn't reset it - and I about brained him with a pillow.

I'm excited for you to start watching! This was the thinky/character-focused ep, which I loved. <3 (I approve of your fun-focused lifestyle.)

A question from a lifelong city girl whose one and only hunting experience ended in tears: deer lease? Wuh?

My imagination says it must be a safe zone that the deer lease for themselves each hunting season. (They earn the money for said lease by acting as stand-in models for reindeer over the Christmas holidays. Sure, it means they have to humiliate themselves a little by donning reindeer antlers and red noses, but they consider it a noble sacrifice. Plus, it makes for fun family stories: "My hoof to God's ears, that was TOTALLY Uncle Bob in that Santa commercial! He said Santa was pretty grumpy, but his breath was nice thanks to all of the candy canes. Also, he met Aunt Lorraine on set. She was playing Blitzen and Bob always likes to say Aunt Lorraine "Blitzened his heart" that day and he was never the same since. Yep, true story.")

Deer lease: land you pay a yearly fee (lease) to have hunting rights. In our case, a friend owns several hundred acres of land and has parceled out sections in 20 acre increments. The Mr. pays a yearly fee to have that be his land to hunt on. The friend is responsible for all things relating to ownership, but no one else can hunt there. We have - essentially - a mobile home out there as a lodge for him to stay at, and for the kids to crash when they go camping with dad. We have access to it year round.

BUT YOUR STORY MAKES FOR A BETTER HOLIDAY MOVIE.

Okay, I had heard of Black Sails because of Toby Stephens (YAY TOBY STEPHENS), but I did not know that it ALSO features lady pirates in love with other lady pirates. MY DAY, IT IS MADE. :D

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.
