tazmanian toddler

Do you remember this guy? From the Bugs Bunny cartoons? Yah, the Tazmanian Devil? He was on the bus with me last night. Except he didn't have this classic appearance from the cartoons... he morphed himself into the shape of a 3 year old boy. Wow, i think we should all say a silent prayer for the mother of that kid.... You know who you are.. you were trying to keep little Taz from ripping the siding off the inner panels of the number 12 Folsom bus

run faster!

Michelle decided the family should go for a run last night since we all got fat over the holiday. But because of the time change it was reeeeeaaalllyyy dark. We ran thru the park and could hardly see. You could make out the whites of some sort of animals eyes.. not sure if they were dogs or cats or ????... we could hear growls and mumblings.. we all got scared and ran as fast as we could the mile and a half home!

Nickel Karma

This morning i counted out a dollar-fifty in change for the train to work. When i got to the station i was a nickel short. I stood there... staring at my empty open hands... i looked up at the station attendant... "i'm a nickel short," i said, as angry business commuters pushed by. Without a word the little gate opened and a transfer popped out of the money taking machine. "Thank you!!" I yelled, as i ran to my train. Now i have to return the favor somehow... what can i do thats worth a nickel of karma?

oh, and i need to have my hair done.. i have that skunk top thing workin'

dunk it

I was watching "The Bachelor" last night.. (wow... he didnt choose Deanna? But thats another story)... so this commercial came on for Dunkin Donuts coffee. Its now for sale at your local grocery store. Dunkin Donuts COFFEE? Does anybody really go to a donut shop for the coffee? and would you buy a bag of it to bring home and make in your own kitchen? It would be another story if it were kinda like a Ben and Jerry's knock-off where the coffee grounds actually have little bits of like... apple fritters or.. chocolate cream filling..or the little yummy donuts with the sprinkles on top! Now that might just get me to grab that bag of Dunkin Donuts coffee and put it in my cart!

put a cork in it...

The other day i was watching good morning america and they had these two doctors on talking about how to de-stress your life. The little cliff hanger before the commercial was that a bottle of wine could help. OOOH! Cool! Justification for the drinking the bottle sitting in the kitchen! But when they came back from the commercial break they said its not about drinking the wine.. its about the cork. If you put the cork in your mouth and hold it top to bottom between your teeth it relaxes your jaw and releases tension. Well, i thought that was a swell idea! Michelle is quite the chatty cathy! I told her about the exercise and the de-stressing powers of the cork... had her put it in her mouth and presto! Peace and quiet in the house!!!

yep, thats me.. without hair. I pulled it all out this morning. I went to the DMV.. i know thats all i need to say.. but i think i might get some therapy out of re-telling the story. I had to show proof of insurance on my motorcycle so that i could get my little registration sticker. I got there with my pile of documents that prove i have insurance and handed them to the little mean lady behind the desk. The lady looked at them over her bi-focals and said, "I see... You have to fax these to the DMV." I said, "You ARE the DMV." and she said, "No, i'm not THAT dmv, i'm the other dmv.. you have to fax these to the other dmv and then they send you a paper in the mail that you bring back to THIS dmv." I said, "but i'm here, looking at you.. standing in this drab green building.. and i have the paper work right here in my hand..." I took a breathe and thought... "oh, i have it!" "YOU fax it to the dmv!" I said triumphantly! "No, i cant fax it", she says, "you have to." I said, "well how would they know if i faxed it or you faxed it?" then she said with a red face...

coffee water

Michelle is home. Phew! The family survived without her. We had a few ruff spells, like when i made coffee.. i pushed the little red button on the maker thing and left the room. When i came back all ready for my steamy yummy cup o' joe... there was only this weird, yellowish, boiling water in the pot. I lifted the top lid and looked inside... ooooops.. forgot to put the coffee grounds in. It was so nice to have michelle back so i could enjoy a proper cup this morning!

she's worried

This is the note michelle left me... on the back of her little illustration is a list complete with oil type for her vw bug (should i need to use it and put oil in) she listed what the cats eat.. what the dog eats.. what time the vet appt is for ethel.. just about everything you can think of for everyday life was listed in bullet point format. The pets are feeling much better now that i have michelle's note in my pocket.

Michelle leaves tonight to go visit her dad in Florida. She is pretty the much the matriarch of our little family. She buys all the food and feeds the animals. Banjo alerted the cats that its just me this weekend and that they may all starve. The whole house is up in arms.

alternative fuel

Last night i was watching monday night football... the pittsburgh steelers were creaming the baltimore ravens and it was actually kinda boring... BUT, during one of the commercial breaks there was a spot about a new alternative fuel... cow gas. Yep, cow gas. Apparently if they harnessed all the cow gas from the dairy farms it would fuel america. Just what we need... The rest of the world already thinks america stinks.

report card

Banjo had a doggy vacation while we were in Carmel at the wedding. When she got home last night she got rave reviews from her doggy sitter. She was a very good girl!

for those of you interested in whether or not i wore the purple shirt.. sadly... it had to stay in the closet. The temperature in Carmel was much to warm for silk. I wore a tasteful white cotton button down to the wedding. But dont worry, the purple shirt will live to see action again some other day.

purple is the new black

This weekend Michelle and i are going to beautiful Carmel for our friends Amanda and Ralphi's wedding. Oh its going to be GORGEOUS!! I cant wait! I packed up my black interview suit complete with purple silk shirt to wear to the wedding. Michelle says i cant wear the purple shirt because she hates it. I packed 4 decoy shirts to throw her off the track.. but come saturday at 4 pm.. the purple shirt is coming out and goin to the party! OH YAH!

I think Michelle has been lying about her age.. i think she's actaully 72. The other day we went to the cute little french bakery in Hayes Valley and had lunch. She ordered tea. When we finished our meal she said, "I'm going to take this tea bag home.. it's still good. I can get another cup out of it." She wrapped the soggy tea bag in a napkin and put it in her purse to use later.
