Scene: Farm Girl and Small Child sitting in the grass, petting a mangy farm cat.

Small Child: Are you a kid?

FG: No, I’m a grown up.

Small Child: (puzzled) At first I thought you were a mom…

FG: Nope, I don’t have any babies.

Small Child: Are you a teenager?

FG: No, just a grown up.

Small Child: (Continues to study FG confusedly and gives up. Finally, Small Child decides to change the subject.) Did you know that a fox ate all our chickens?

Random Bits of Nothingness

#1) Thanks to a random turn of events, Derek and I spent a magical evening at Stars on Ice. That's right, Stars. On. Ice. I was little disappointed there wasn't a giant skating teapot or candlestick, but you take what you can get.

#2) I don't know how many of you know this, but Derek is married to a True Aggie. One not-so-magical "A Day" night many years ago, I stood on a cement "A" with about a 1,000 other couples and kissed a boy. I think it's appropriate to share this tonight becasue our Aggies are in the big dance! Stu Morril has done it again, and tonight Derek is proud to be a True Aggie by proxy. Go Aggies!


C'mon, it's funny.

To Better Days

The weather man tells us that we're supposed to get 4-8 inches of snow tonight. Back home that would mean an early morning full of faceshots and fresh tracks. Here in D.C. it means nothing. Winter here is worthless. You get all the cold with none of the benefits.

While hunkered down staying out of the cold, I pieced together some footage from our last trip to the desert. Check it out in the sidebar or click here.
