Man, what a crappy, dismal, rainy day we had yesterday. Half the back forty had standing water in it and when the pigs hadn’t shown themselves by 10:30, I went out to take them some food and check to make sure they were still there. I couldn’t see them, because they were buried under the straw, but I could see the straw moving a little, so I assumed they hadn’t escaped overnight, and was proven correct later on. The rain stopped for a little while, so the pigs came out to root around in their favorite spot (under the tree) before they went off to take yet another nap.

The temperature dropped 30 degrees between Monday and yesterday; I certainly can’t blame the pigs for spending their time snuggled up together in the straw, keeping warm, instead of out in the cold, wet field. I’ll be glad when the weather warms up for real.


Since I have nothing of interest to report, and I have to leave soon for a hair appointment (and a run to Sam’s), a meme! I stole it from somewhere (I don’t remember where) last week or the week before. I think. Anyway! On to the meme!


Q. What is your favorite fast food restaurant? A. Depends on the meal. I like the occasional Egg McMuffin from McDonald’s for breakfast, and the occasional chicken sandwich from Burger King. If I’m in the mood for tacos, there’s always Taco Bell. I can’t really say any of them are my favorites. Unless Subway counts? Probably it does, so I’ll say Subway. I like to get a sandwich from Subway and spread it out over two (sometimes three, depending on the sandwich) meals.

Q. What is your favorite sit-down restaurant? A. If I have the choice of any restaurant in the world, I’m going to say The Muddy Rudder, in Yarmouth, Maine.

Q. On average, what size tip do you leave at a restaurant? A. 30 – 40%, generally. I almost always overtip.

Q. What food could you eat every day for two weeks and not get sick of? A. Right now, I’ve got a little edamame addiction going on. I also eat scrambled eggs for breakfast almost every day. I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of eggs.

Q. What are your pizza toppings of choice? A. Pepperoni, onions, and black olives.

Q. What do you like to put on your toast? A. I don’t eat toast, but if I had to I’d probably have jelly or a little peanut butter on it.


Q. What is your wallpaper on your computer? A. I actually had to go look – it’s this picture of Sugarbutt.

Q. How many televisions are in your house? A. One. Well, two if you include the one in the guest bedroom. Actually, now that I think about it, three if you include the one in the guest bedroom closet. Only one (the one in the living room) is hooked up to cable, though.


Q. Are you right-handed or left-handed? A. Right

Q. Have you ever had anything removed from your body? A. A (noncancerous) tumor, a baby, and a gallbladder.

Q. What is the last heavy item you lifted? A. Miz Poo!

Q. Have you ever been knocked unconscious? A. Nope, never.


Q. If it were possible, would you want to know the day you were going to die? A. No.

Q. If you could change your name, what would you change it to? A. I can’t imagine having any other name, actually.

Q. What color do you think looks best on you? A. Dark purple. It makes my eyes “pop”, according to my sister!

Q. Have you ever swallowed a non-food item by mistake? A. I have the unfortunate habit of swallowing little pieces of cross-stitching thread.

Q. Have you ever saved some one’s life? A. No

Q. Has someone ever saved yours? A. No.


Q. Would you kiss a member of the same sex for $100? A. Sure.

Q. Would you allow one of your little fingers to be cut off for $200,000? A. I think so. It’d have to be my left pinky, though. Wait. Would it be the whole pinky, or would I be left a nubbin to assist when I’m typing? Doesn’t matter – I’m pretty sure I’d take $200,000 for a pinky, though.

Q. Would you never blog again for $50,000? A. Probably.

Q. Would you pose naked in a magazine for $250,000? A. I can’t imagine anyone would want to see that, but sure. Why not?

Q. Would you drink an entire bottle of hot sauce for $1000? A. There’s no way I could manage that.

Q. Would you, without fear of punishment, take a human life for $1,000,000? A. No.


Q: What is in your left pocket? A: I don’t wear pants that have pockets in them, actually.

Q: Is Napoleon Dynamite actually a good movie? A: I don’t know that I’d say “good.” I’d definitely go with “amusing”, though.

Q: Do you sit or stand in the shower? A: Stand.

Q: Could you live with roommates? A: Not unless I was desperate.

Q: How many pairs of flip flops do you own? A: None. I don’t like the strap that goes between your toes. It’s very irritating to me.

Q: What do you want to be when you grow up? A: I think I’ve settled on being the crazy old lady who walks up and down the highway median picking up trash. Does that pay well?

Every night beginning at 6:00, Sugarbutt gets up on the filing cabinet in front of the printer and waits. And waits. Sometimes the wait is so long and strenuous that he sits there, dozing. He knows that Snackin’! Time! is coming, but he’s not sure when. He’s decided that the best place to wait for Snackin’! Time! is on the filing cabinet, so that when I stand up from my desk and head for the kitchen, he can FLY! across the computer room and escort me into the kitchen. I might need help finding the plates or the cans of Snack!, you know.
