Please Leave a Message at the Tone


Hi, this is Lisa. I'm not here right now. Can you guess which item might be keeping me from blogging? I am:

(1) Standing on a kitchen chair, clutching a couple of spice jars in my sweaty hands, screaming at the top of my lungs that I hate, hate, hate, unpacking the kitchen stuff.

(2) Lolling about in the Love Tub, drinking champagne from some decorative glass something or other I haven't found home for yet and wearing a beard made of bubbles.

(3) Hiding in an undisclosed location (read: bathroom), sending SOS text messages on my Twitter and Facebook, hoping to rescued from the mess of moving.

(4) Crying big, fat tears because I miss having time to be online, reading and commenting and being a pesty pest.

Anyway, there is still stuff to unpack, porn to hide, goblets to break, the dungeon to set up, Spawn to ignore, and MathMan to annoy. I better get going....

There will be pictures, and possibly video later of the progress we're making or not making. Either way, you'll be riveted by the horror of it all, I assure you.

Speaking of horror - please remember to Vote for Nora in the Fangoria Spooksmodel contest. She's in the finals! Let's help her win! Read Bubs' instructions here and follow his link. This time voting requires a quick email confirmation so the vote registers. Bubs explains it.

That is all. For now.

  1. I think you cloned yourself in your secret underground laboratory and are doing all of the above, but silently fear your clones getting out into the real world to wreak havoc on our beloved democracy with the porn-loving commie socialist values you no doubt programmed them with.

  2. I am so looking forward to it.

    And I so feel for you. Moving is not something I ever want to do again. Ever. Have a martini on me, okay?

  4. I hope that you can get back lolling about in the Love Tub soon!

    It is the best way to muddle through a week-end.

  8. I think it is all a ruse.

    You are wearing a beard of bubbles and drinking champagne from some decorative glass in the LoveTub, sending SOS text messages on your Twitter and Facebook, crying big, fat tears and throwing spice jars at anyone who comes by and suggests that you get back to the work of moving.

    Well, it not so much that I think you're doing that, as I am positive that when I am in a similar situation in about six weeks, that is what I shall be doing. (Except in my case, my Love Tub is known as The Isolation Booth.)

  9. Fine comment Wee Mousie. I have nothing to add. And I already live in the isolation booth, only I call it The Bunker. I'm invisible, and no one knows I'm here.

  10. ah darlin', it's OK, don't worry, it's almost over! really it is and I know you can do it!! I knew it was #4 (right?) and do you know how long it took me to see and type the # key?? OMG...anyway, where was I...oh crap, who cares, you take care of you, get into that big old tub of yours and soak ALL ALONE for at least an hour tonight, meaning now, I suppose! hoping you are having pizza and a beer for dinner, well, had........yes, moving stinks but then it's over and you'll be settled and back to normal....pausing to think about that and have decided to just shut up now...that's why.

  14. This too shall pass. It's just hell when you are in the middle of it. Good luck. Hope you get the unpacking done earlier than expected so that you can enjoy that Love Tub.

  18. Unpacking is a real chore, but living out of boxes is worse. Hang in there.

  19. I must say, there is very little in this world that is less appealing to me than moving. You have my sympathies. I apologize for not visiting very much lately, but please know that you and your family have been in my thoughts, regardless. Best to all of you.
