Today marks the most successful, successive blog post for me in the last, oh, YEAR, I guess. Two days is my success and while I don’t really have any crosses to burn today, or even any assholes to maim – I just have a little nugget of joy to offset the insanity from yesterday. Or at least make me appear less than Institutionally Certifiable.

So, since my computer is broken (long story), I can’t really take and upload any pics right now. This one is from my camera phone, but it definitely at least brings a smile to my face. AND! proves that I  have the dedication, if I just put my mind to it.

My sister is MARRIED!!

This weekend I had the honor of being a part of my only sibling’s wedding in Deep Creek Lake, MD. It was essentially a weekend long party for friends and family and honestly, I’m still re-cooperating today. We had a fantastic time, which is most likely directly attributed to the amount of alcohol which was imbibed. I don’t know what the final counts ended up as, but I know that on Saturday morning, after having some folks over Thursday night, and an open house Friday night, we had gone through 6 cases of beer and about 10 bottles of wine. And the wedding wasn’t until 3pm Saturday afternoon. If there is one thing that my family is, it’s folks who enjoy alcoholic beverages.

Aside from a very minor mishap where the MOH ended up stumbling and falling on her face, with little more than a couple scrapes and a bruise THANKFULLY, the weekend went off without a hitch. My sister, who I have in the past condemned for her Type A personality ways, and who managed to pretty much plan it all herself, even remarked today that it was everything that she had hoped for. Coming from her, it must have been a damn good party.

YAY! for ponds photoblog

WOW! I just realized that it’s been an ENTIRE MONTH since I have blogged about anything…I need to get my ass in gear, here! In the meantime, enjoy a few pics from my pond, because I certainly do. I have froggers!

My Pond!

Say hello to my little friend

Ok, so two years ago, this month, my ex moved out and I essentially began my life altering transition into what normal people like to call REALITY. Needless to say, I was ridiculously inexperienced in such a genre and I fell relatively quickly, facedown into a writhing pool of deprecating self-hatred. During this period of my life, I stifled my urges to commit Harri Kari by actually ACCOMPLISHING tasks and doing things that I wanted to do, HOW I wanted them done. One of the first tasks I took to was the refurbishing of my pond. I got a pump set up, had a waterfall tray installed, got a lily pad and even bought some fish. It was a daunting and SMELLY task, but it definitely brought me joy to hear the water and to see my fishies swimming around in there. And just because no REAL pond is complete without tadpoles, I also stole a handful of frog eggs from a friend of mine, who also has a pond, and threw them in, too, all the while hoping for the best.

Well, here we are 2 complete rotations of the sun later , and one of those little tadpoles is still coming back to visit. I must say that there is something really fantastic about the whole scenario, it really just makes me smile. I guess it’s just the fact that this one, lonesome foster frogger, who probably isn’t even accomplishing his one main goal in life, still continues to come back to his ol’ stompin’ grounds every year, and continues to sit in that SAME. DAMN. SPOT. That’s how I know he’s back, cause one day, I just look at that spot, and there he is. I know it’s a little early, but I’m planning a Welcome Home! party for his springtime arrival NEXT year. All are welcomed.

Only in America

Blasting back to January with this one. Taken in the public restroom at Haleakala Crater, Maui, HI
Only in America are there people THIS stupid. AND the worst part of it all – this was literally the only one that someone hadn’t managed to steal or break in half while attempting to steal.

Ghetto-fabulous *snap*

Today’s entertainment came from the fact that rocks being propelled by lawnmower blades often create earth-shattering havoc on nearby car windows. Fortunately, the dude sought me out and gave me the name of a glass place that he apparently has an account with…seems he is no stranger to ::yeah, I’m ACTUALLY gonna quote a bad 80’s song, here:: walking on, walking on, walking on BROKEN GLASS!!
