Just Because I Can (not a Conway Twitty song)(I don't think)

Guess what?  I HAVE INTERNET AGAIN!  The reasons why we were without it for so long are boring and confusing, let's just say that my husband is a GENIUS and now we have it again!

Let's see, what information have I been holding in that I've not been able to spew without planning for an outing to the library or a coffee shop?...  Well, now that I have all the freedom and comfort and convenience in the world, I don't really have anything important to say.  How about a little live-blogging:  Mitch just told me he has a Conway Twitty cassette tape somewhere.

Mitch says he likes Conway because he's the "whole package," meaning that he's got the dancing, the hair, the wonderful lyrics that make uncomfortable allusions to date-rape.  Who wouldn't love him?  Probably all of his muses.  No means no, Conway.

Remember the frog I told you about that I found in the bathroom, and then lost a few days later somewhere in the house, and then found again in the bathroom?  Well, I lost him again.  I suspect he's somewhere in the bathroom.  He's a wily little fella.  I wish he'd come back because I really enjoy feeding him flies.  Now when I see a fly I think to myself, "Wow, look at that fly, it's so fat!  I bet the frog would love it!"

I'm taking a trip with my kids next week to Washington DC to see all the sights and stuff my kids' brains with knowledge and experience.  I am SO GLAD the stupid government didn't shut down or I don't know what we would have done.  Probably protested at the capitol, and what's more fun that standing around all day with your mother and 10,000 angry strangers yelling at a building?  Most things.  The kids don't know how lucky they are.  

That's it until the next inane thought pops into my head!


  1. Who will feed the frog while you're in D.C.?

  2. Conway Twitty also opened Twitty City, which is so marvelous I may die.

  3. Eva's right.........who will feed the frog.......

    OMG Sarah, he's not "wily"!! He wants to be free!! Free Willy! I mean, Ferdinand...or whatever ridiculous name you chose. Just say 'no' to reptiles in the house.


  5. Eva and Jane: Don't worry about the frog. He has proved himself to be more self-sufficient than anyone else in this house. He'll be fine. If I see him again, I'll just put him outside because it's warm enough now.

    And Dana, two things: 1)yes he is wily and I suspect then only reason he shows himself is when he gets sick of catching his own flies and wants a few days off and lets me do the fly hunting, and then when he gets bored he leaves again. And 2) He's an amphibian, not a reptile! OMG!

    Kristina: Thanks!

    Suniverse: I wish I could say I'd like to see Twitty City, but I really don't. But I would like a t-shirt from there.


I would love your comments.
