Find Me On:
I think yours would definitely win! I don’t have any creepy chains or crucifixes or anything. Seriously, the crucifix thing really really freaks me out. I feel like there could be other explanations for all the other weird stuff going on in your dungeon, but not for that. I have an overactive imagination and I don’t think I could live there.
So my husband has the same name as some middle aged sports fisherman, and they are always battling for emails and such. My husband now just randomly signs up for any new technology, just to get his name locked in. The one time he fell down on the job though was twitter, and now this dude is tweeting all the time about fish and boats under my husbands name.
We’ve moved into our new house and as long as I avoid the basement with the creepy dungeon at all costs then everything is fine. Still no tv or internet, so it’s getting super boring. Things take so long here, it will be 2 more weeks till we get internet in the house!
Also, I’m super tired this morning cause I stayed up way way too late reading Steph’s book. It’s really good y’all! It’s the first book I’ve actually had a chance to read since having my kid last year and it’s definitely a good first book back.
I threw a drink at a boyfriend once, it was a mudslide. We are no longer together…not directly because I threw my drink at him but really any relationship where you have the urge to throw things at each other is probably not very solid.
Does your basement dungeon look like someone was locked into a bedroom and tried to dig their way to freedom, Count of Monte Cristo style? Mine has a normal closet door on it, totally just looks like it would be a normal bedroom closet, until you open it.
I did see some baby sheep on the drive in from the airport. But haven’t been out to the countryside since then. Oh, and I’ve been watching a lot of 1D, and thought of you! I finding them surprisingly cute for a bunch of teenagers.
We made it to Scotland. The first few days were sunny and pretty, but yesterday was gloomy and rainy, so a typical Scottish day. I survived, but realized that I didn’t pack a jacket with a hood, which was very poor planning on my part. I got to check out our new house yesterday, and the ground and 1st floor are really cool, but the basement is creepy and possibly haunted. It has a dungeon in it. I’m not kidding, it’s a dungeon. It’s got stone walls and a weird crawlspace and I don’t like it. My days have consisted of shopping for furniture, trying to figure out where to go to get the things, and sitting in a hotel room watching hours and hours of Viva. I’ve seen more videos of British boy bands than I care to admit. Also, for some strange reason, the Goo Goo Dolls “Iris” video was on the top 20 countdown this week…..
I totally forgot that Devon Sawa existed! I was more of a Rider Strong girl.
Sometimes I think I would have been a way cooler person in high school if the internet had been a bigger deal back then. I mean the internet existed, but it was all AOL chat rooms and angelfire pages, and my parents certainly weren’t going to pay for that crap. But, if I had it I would have known so much more about music and pop culture and everything else. Then I see something like this and I thank god that I missed out on all of this.
Hey y’all, I just find out that the apartment that we thought fell through maybe didn’t actually fall through. That means when we move half way around the world next week we may actually have a place to move into! Here’s hoping that I won’t be homeless next week.
And I think about half of my videogum comments have now been about embarrassing or klutzy situations I’ve been in. I’d say I’ve gotten better as an adult, but that’s really not true.
Ok y’all, I’ve actually had a paper cut on my eyeball before, and I’m afraid this means that I may be Tobey. To be fair to me, it wasn’t due to a paper airplane accident. It was during middle school band class (ok this isn’t making my story any better) and the director was passing out some sort of handout, and he dropped it right in my eye. I actually had to wear an eye-patch. And picture day was the next day. It was pretty much some sort of awful embarrassing teenage movie situation. I think I ended up saying F it, I don’t care about proper eye care, I’m not wearing an eye-patch on picture day.
Here’s the recipe. I think actual French ppl would be very upset that it’s called ratatouille, but it’s pretty and delicious, and fairly easy to put together if you have the mandolin.
I have a mandolin slicer that I bought for a specific recipe, and I am completely terrified every time I use it. But I love the recipe so I’m forced to use it quite often. So far I haven’t done any permanent damage, but it’s a risk every single time!
As for the Le Creuset stuff, we registered for 2 things at a fancy kitchen store when we got married and I absolutely love them. They are amazing. However, fancy kitchen store has now discontinued the color that we ordered. They have a new color that is just a few shades off and it really bothers me to an unreasonable degree that my stuff doesn’t match. So beware that if you buy the bakeware on clearance you may not be able to buy matching stuff later on.
Oh yes, I will definitely be complaining about that. I have lived in the south for the majority of my life and I’m just completely unprepared to live so far north. I’m mourning the loss of all my flip flops and shorts right now, they are all going to live at my Mom’s house while we are abroad. I keep thinking that maybe I should just pack a few t-shirts and shorts, just in case, and really shouldn’t I be able to wear flip flops at some point during the summer? But my husband, who is much more cold-natured than me, was wearing fleeces in the middle of summer last year, so I think I’m in for quite a shock. Right now I’m sort of looking forward to the late sun, just because it’ll be so weird an different. But I’m really dreading the lack of sun in the winter.
Yep, I’ll be there in a couple weeks. I’m really excited about the lambs. My husband said there are some that have big rabbit-like ears. I’m basically going to die when I finally see one.
*hand! I sliced my hand open.
Right after I moved into my first apartment and was living alone for the first time ever, I was chopping up a watermelon and sliced my had open. Had to get 6 stitches! I resolved to (was ordered to by my mom after the ER bill) only buy pre-chopped fruits. What I’m trying to say is that watching this video makes me very very nervous.
So I’m moving to Scotland soon, and I have these fantasies that I will run into Tilda Swinton at a coffee shop or grocery store or something. She probably shops for her own groceries right? We probably won’t become friends or anything, because I’m shy and awkward, but maybe she’ll take a picture with me, and I’ll post it on here. Or at least I can post that I’ve seen Tilda in her natural habitat.
Today was my last day at work. We’re moving out of the country for my husband’s job, and tomorrow I’m going to be super excited about it, but today I’m mostly just sad that I’m leaving a good job and a city that I love. On a much more positive note, hopefully I’ll be able to comment a lot more (at least on the morning posts), now that I’m going to be unemployed for the next year or so!
A meetup would be cool! We will be in the Aberdeen area, but are planning to travel around quite a bit. I’m going to need to be in a city bigger than pop. 200,000 fairly often! My husband has basically been living there for the past year and he really loves it. He says it is so beautiful and its amazing that you can drive for 15 minutes and be completely in the countryside. He’s also a big fan of the highland cows.
Trust me, I’ve already informed him about the need to purchase lots of wellies and other boots. I realized a few days ago the only boots I have are suede, and those aren’t exactly going to hold up well to the weather.
I’m pretty nervous about the produce situation. We live in the south and there are beautiful fresh veggies available all year around at the grocery store. I visited my husband around this time last year and there were like 3 green tomatoes and maybe some lettuce at the grocery store. But I’m telling myself that it’ll be a chance to broaden my culinary horizons and learn to cook more seasonally.
Hey chaka khans moms, I’m moving to Scotland this spring, entirely for a man (my husband’s getting transferred). How do you like it there? I’m pretty nervous about it, cause I like the sun and I think I’m really going to miss it.
I’m a new mom, and breastfeeding, and I got a blocked duct and really bad infection. Had to have surgery last week to have the milk drained, and they can’t just stitch you back up after that because the milk would just come back in and get infected again. So the recovery is a bitch, but I’m lucky I guess that we caught it before the infection got super bad.
Yes, these were fire ants! Fire ants love me, once in college I was attacked twice in one week, on the same leg.
Recovery update: Still have a giant, but getting smaller, hole in my boob. But things are getting better. Had this crazy vacuum thingy put in this week, which is really cumbersome. I won’t go into to many details, but I have to wear this purse thingy that carries the vacuum at all times, and even sleep with it, but it’ll help to heal faster. My mom is here helping with the kiddo for now and my husband comes home this weekend, yay! On a positive note, it’s a hilarious injury to have, and most of my friends can’t resist texting me variations of “how’s your boobie today.” You can’t stay too grumpy when getting messages like that all day.
