A Break in the Clouds


It may be a gray day. There may be some kind of wet stuff falling from the sky. I might even be stuck at home because my car won't start. There's precious little food in the house (I've got Kraft Dinner oozing from the pores that aren't clogged with peanut butter and jelly) and we don't have any batteries for the remote.

But!

The electricity is still on. I don't have to shovel rain. We are NOT out of vodka. I'm capable of walking to the television to change the channels. My feet aren't cold. The Dancer drove the other spawn to school so I'm alone. Our plumbing still works. I have a tube of Chapstick next to me. I am not required to attend any extracurricular activities tonight. I'm still losing weight. The coffee was excellent today. I was able to pull out some dvds that I hadn't watched since last spring and watching them didn't stir up things like anger flashbacks or a desire to fire off a hate email to my Dementor. I've only had to clean up one pile of cat yak today. Every time someone on MSNBC says "Stimulus Package," I take a shot of vodka and the punditocracy is all about stimulating packages today. And then there's this - more fun things from blogpals!

I'm telling you, if I can get our printer to work (it is apparently in cahoots with the idiot car today), those nifty things from Summer will keep me busy for hours. Now I need a Miss Lemon so I can pretend they are having paperdoll, um, ...... tea.

  2. Kinda sounded like a little bit of heaven today, what with the vodka shots and the chap stick and the DVDs. Hang in the there, kiddo. It will eventually get either better or worse. The one invariable is change. It will come no matter what.

  3. Nothing a vodlka shot can't cure. When is prom? I am a chapstick addict..my favorite right now is avon butterscotch... Have a nice evening.

  4. I think the Kia gremlin messed with the car. You know the same guy who was in the Twilight Zone on that airplaine's wing.

    And... I vote for two vodkas because I know that there is a big bottle and two small one's in the freezer. mmmm cold shots.

  5. After all the "stimuli" I'm surprised you can still post! Make sure you save some for later.

  6. Now, this is more like it! You're looking on the bright side!

    I must tell you about the most remarkable coincidence that just occurred. Before I clicked on your post, I was trying to think of something to write on MY blog. All I could think of saying was, "My feet are cold!" (They are fucking FREEZING!) Then I was going to follow that up with a diatribe about how much I hate Pennsylvania winters. But I decided to check your ruminations first. And what to my wondering eyes did appear? You, exulting in the fact that your "...feet aren't cold."

    Is that six degrees of separation, or what?

  7. So the glass is half full with Vodka and it has a moustache on it?;-) Stay warm and carb filled.

  9. Maybe you don't need Miss Lemon with all that vodka. You can hallucinate her. Glad the little Belgian brightened your day.

  10. At least I'm glad to see that isn't a milk mustache. Why is it I'm always reminded of something else on those upper lips in the ads?

  13. When you write things like the printer is in cohoots with the idiot car, it's more than obvious you're not out of vodka :)

    You're comin' to India, then, right? You'd better be ...

    :)

  17. If the vodka is made from potatoes, does that count as a vegatable??

  18. Aw, keeping the sunny side up, eh? Good for you, Lisa!

  19. I'm glad to hear that you found someone else to shovel all that rain. Pain in the ass, it is.

  20. I remember a post when you said you couldn't remember the last time you had a drink. Does this mean you aren't drinking or you can't remember shit anymore?

    I am typing this with a glass of the beverage Herb Caen called Vitamin V at the ready, so no judgments.

  21. The words "cat yak" makes me laugh! :) Also, I'm glad you are not out of Vodka or coffee--both essentials!! :)

  22. Isn't Summer fabulous?! And we know her in person, too. Met her in choir at church (church within church).

  23. I included stimulus package in my list of words that should be banned. Sounds too much like the box the vibrator came in. Who wants the box?
