And *exhaaaaaaaaaale*

Went away on a spur of the moment trip to 'Bama to sit around in jammies, drink too much coffee, each too much 'Que (BBQ for non US-ers), eat too many chocolate-dipped marshmallows (conclusion: surprisingly delicious), stay up until 1:30 (that's late for me!) playing cards and watching movies, and have a fan-freaking-tastic time that was much needed. In the end it was proved that southernbangel and marenfic are good for what ails ya.

Also, I want to kidnap Maren's dogs, who are loving and funny and HUGE and playful and like to be loved. There is no bad here. (My Sally Von Schtupp pup was VERY INTERESTED in the Other smell on her Mommy and will not leave my side for fear of me cheating on her. D'aww, puppy!)

Life has been stressful, as I'm sure many of you can identify, so now I feel bolstered up enough to make it through the week. Aren't friends terrific? Also, I got my card-loving back, so the Mister and I played gin rummy late through the night, and he's not good at it, so I kicked his butt, and that's a Very Good Thing, as Martha would say. (I really treasure it. <-- joke for a few of you.)

I also have found cannibalistic, vampiric, otherworldly, hermaphroditic, Mary Sueish, Neo-pet bad!fic, and that is ONE. STORY. I'll take some vitamins and wade through it later, naturally sharing all the badness with You. I'm pretty sure we could all use the laughing this week, yes? In the meantime, here: have a link to a laugh (work safe - John Denver & Muppets with the 12 Days of Christmas.) Beeker: Mee mee mee mee mee mee... :D And here's a wonderful production from PS22 last year that honors its Jewish community - absolutely wonderful performance.

Confidential to 1. a2zmom, 2. brandil, and 3. anelith: 1. I did NOT have it, so thank you! It's getting loaded up in my car for a drive today to be listened to, and THANK YOU!!! <3 2. I got the card last week and forgot to thank you, so I apologize. Thank you!! <3 <3 3. I miss you, too!! The kids were happy to see a card from you and send their love. <3 <3 <3

Bolstering of the best caliber! Sounds like a wonderful time - good for all of you. I can't get the link for the Muppets to work and it still made me laugh because I can remember it from when it actually aired. OHMUPPETSILOVEDYOU.

It won't? BOO!! You can navigate to the link on milkandcookies.com - it's on the main page, just scroll down.

The Muppets make me so happy - I've been singing the theme song all morning. :D

Muppets = Joy.

How can anyone with a soul not love the Muppets!

*joins in the chorus*

They're Muppetational, you know!

WHY won't they release "John Denver & the Muppets" on DVD? WHY? Thanks for the link, I really enjoyed that.

Glad to hear you de-stressed this weekend!

I have to make do with my CD 3 pack of Muppets and John Denver. Hopefully it will come out soon, because that moment from childhood makes me SO HAPPY!!!

I heart you.

My pups crashed last night after the high of Lee and Stoney weekend madness. All that loving wore them out. Mr. Maren crashed too. I'll let your readers' minds whirl for a moment about that.

Sally might feel better to know that Maddy had the same reaction when I came home from Casa del Stoney in September. The last time I came home covered in the smell of that much dog she got a Truman a few days later. She was highly suspicious and not much in favor of the idea.

Hahahha, oh, MADDY. <3 I love that they sacked out. We kept them up late with lovings, 'tis true.

I have WORN MR. STONEY OUT with tales of your awesomeness, so I hope your ears were burning. :) I heart you TONS. (I'm assuming you got all the grading done/turned in? If not, aw well. I bet you're not the only prof. who didn't. <-- unmitigated support, zomg.)

Dear Stoney,

I miss you already. Plz come back, okay?



PEE ESS: Don't be a cuntrag.

I'm so happy you had a fun weekend. Yay friends!!

Did you get my latest e-mail? I have to book my travel before Friday or else they'll make me pay for it myself! :S

I'm so glad you got to get away for a weekend of good food and good company, that's what life is all about. Of course life is also all about:

I also have found cannibalistic, vampiric, otherworldly, hermaphroditic, Mary Sueish, Neo-pet bad!fic, and that is ONE. STORY.

That is brilliant. :D

Nononono, not neo-pet badfic! In my days of crappy Personnel photocopying job I got hooked on the silly site to kill time, and still haven't quite shaken it off despite having an actual Career these days. But I resolutely ignore all off-site shenanigans. Not sure I can take pet-fic. But then, if it's really really bad...

*is torn*

Sounds like you guys had an awesome time.

I am so glad that worked out! Let me know what you think.

Those PS 22 kids are so adorable.

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.

Time Wot It Is
