Every picture tells a story of "wow, that's random."

Because I was waiting here, at the computer, for my MARCH vacation pictures to upload to Wal-fartdotcom (judge me not- I have about 500- yes- seriously- FIVE HUNDRED pictures I need, and they were the cheapest), I thought I'd give y'all a few to ponder.

With minimal descriptors:

I think I posted this before, but this is from the Bahamas trip in March. We were all fairly intoxicated the entire time.
Good trip.
This is me at a beach bar/restaurant where we had perfect fried whole snapper (enter snapper jokes here) and many, many local brews.

Flowers currently in my home right now. Some purchased, some from the garden, all arranged by me.

I felt inclined to make shadow puppets while waiting for my pix to upload.
I think this looks like a hook-nosed old man with no teeth, kind of like Chet Baker after the heroin.

I thought this one looked like a dolphin.

Look! He's smiling.

Happy Dolphin.

This is what happens to a 100+ year-old chimney when it decides it doesn't want to live at my house anymore.

I have hauled 4.5, 5-gallon pails of dirt-like debris out of the basement already (hello, asbestos! Hello, lung cancer- breathing is overrated anyways!), and I expect to haul out much more before the professionals come around to remove the beast.

I hate this fucker.

I can't wait until he's gone.

He is going to cost $4-5,000 to remove.

Shit, I could buy a defective Chinese baby girl for that much money (don't even bother with the hate mail, I KNOW, but it's not like you come here for the PC touchy-feely banter- so don't even bother.)

This is me trying to lick my husband's face last weekend.

I cut him off a bit so as to protect his privacy- but from what you can see, doesn't he look happy?

I don't have bangs yet here, and my hair was dirty and uncooperative that day.
So what to do with the raggedy-assed hair?

Hey there ponytail, sure am getting tired of seeing your played-out coif around here.

I think I'll try to bring back banana clips. I think the time has come once again to rock the 'nana clip.


That's all I have time for- I have to get up at the ass-crack of dawn tomorrow to have my last play-date with the kidlins, and my CA sister is in town tomorrow night, so if I don't get back tomorrow- see you Friday.

If the darlings don't go all "Lord of the Flies" on me tomorrow, that is.

Did I mention I have kids next week too???

(Me, with creepy clown-like perma-grin on my face. Me, praying for a tornado, or hurricane, or tsunami to hit the building before Monday...)
(Me, trying in vain to kick my own ass.)

And let me know how the self-inflicted ass-kicking turns out for you!

metalia said...

Aw, look at the happy dolphin! If you do bring banana clips back, I have a bag if about 3 trillion in the back of my closet that I'd be willing to part with. :)

Nocturnal said...

Love that bandanna and the look on your hubbies face to boot. That looked like one hell of a trip.

T said...

Hmmm ... I think I've seen that expression on Mr. WM's face somewhere before ... ;-)

Lollie said...

Not to be gross, but near the top of the fireplace picture, it looks like your chimney-not-to-be has a pecker and a nut sack and he is giving you the big ole' flasheroo.

Brillig said...

Yes, I believe I said "wow, that's random" several times during this post....

Good luck with the banana clip thing. Let me know how that goes for you.

I have glads in the house too. DLL's mom came over for dinner on Monday night and gushed for, like, 15 minutes. Jeez. They were $3.50 at Cub. They're pretty, but not worth 15 minutes of gushing. I suspect she was hitting the sauce beforehand.

Also, lets trade haircolors for a week. I want dark hair.

Butrfly Garden said...

haha, random indeed!

Pretty flowers!

A few weeks ago it was hot and I was tired of the standard ponytail and was looking at hair accessories and came across the "octopus clip" which the package claimed was PERFECT for thick hair. Thus, I thought it would be perfect for me as my hair is quite thick and long and I don't know what to do with it all most of the time. So I bought it and got home and started playing with it and you know what? It is NOT perfect for thick hair. The octopus clip won't hold all my damn hair.

Kara said...

Okay, here are my random comments.

Hey, your hook-nosed old man looks like my grandfather!

I never could do the banana clip because my hair is too thin and fly-away. So I just shaved it all off. Aaaah. Much better.

Nice flowers.

I have to wonder if your husband really wants his lickin'.

Chimney demolition--I thought it would be more fun than it looks like from your picture. I mean sledge hammers and breaking stuff-- how can you go wrong?

Best blog post I read all day, and considering I'm at work, that's saying a lot.

deana said...

Your husband's hot. He's got quite the sexy eye thing going on.

thethinker said...

Great pictures, especially that last one.

feisty said...

yes, bring back the 'nanna clips. my 6th grade head of hair looked great in those...that would be MINT.

does hubby have squinty-yet-smokin' eyes all the time, or was he simply drunk?

LittlePea said...

I'm glad I'm not the only one remembers banana clips. You could totally pull that off.

Courtney said...

All *excellent* photos!


Whiskeymarie said...

The Mr. was only tipsy in the pic. He has (in my humble opinion) the prettiest green eyes in the world. Yeah, he's rather cute.

He also hates getting his pic taken.
Hates it.

Rebecca said...

it took me a long, long time to see the dolphin and the old man....but then I DID...and are talented. (not leaast because you probably took the photos too??? a feat of co-ordination!!)

Just remember that I knew you when.....
