after the party

This is me after consuming a bottle of wine at a dinner party for my aunt's birthday.

whereas the shit cloud continues to rain down on me...

...this time in the form of a golf ball hitting the roof of my car on the way home from work. Do you see that round divet???

4:59 am: minneapolis airport (the next day!)

Thanks, Northwest, for the 30 hours to get me home. Also, thanks for the tour of 5 different airports. And thanks for losing my luggage. Yeah, thanks for NOTHING!

stuck in the bloomington, minnesota super 8

They were kind enough to give me multiple free deodorants, but no toothbrush. Boy, did I feel like ass!

the surviving rose

Larry bought these roses from the "flower man" on the street before he left for his trip. Upon unwrapping them, we determined that they were possibly stolen from someone's yard. It's the thought that counts, right?

ah, memories

And then I found this in my 1995 yearbook - a list of ways to say "throw up", written by Naomi!

welcome to the pity party

Ok, things haven't been going so great lately: surgery frustrations, Larry being away for four weeks, and the icing on the cake - a clueless b*tch backing into my car on Saturday. The antidote: Wine, chocolate...and marshmallows.

on my own

Larry's on a business trip for the next four weeks. I spent today sitting around the apartment wearing his pajama pants.

long way to go

Well girls, I'm WAY behind you two. I had fewer states than I thought. But I've been to 9 European countries and 6 Caribbean islands. Does that count for anything?

gettysburg, 144 years later

I don't know whether this guy works for the battlefield, is a Civil War buff who dresses up to visit battlefields, or is just a crazy guy who actually thinks the year is 1863, but he sat there smoking and made for a great photo op.
