Pie Night Eve

Oh my, oh my, oh my, oh my!  Tomorrow is my favorite day of the year...*

*The SanDiego branch of the Kirkland's are cooking (err...baking) up some serious Pie Night Plans.  Highlights coming soon.

Just Now...

A conversation I just had with myself:

"Ouch!", I said after poking myself in the leg with a needle. 
"I think I'm losing my senses."
"And I'm talking to myself outloud."
"And I'm talking to myself out loud about talking to myself out loud..."

It's becoming very evident that I need to get out more.  (Not too mention that the conversations I have with myself don't even make sense.  Wait...are they supposed to?  Hmm....)

A Very Good Decision

Six years ago today, Matt asked me to marry him.  

I love you, baby...


It is NEVER a good idea to open a packet of wasabi with your teeth...

On My Way To the Post Office

Side Note:  
My husband just informed me that on his walk home from work tonight he saw a man in a large truck at the gas station open his window a crack, shove out a cheap kitchen knife, then drive off.  After the obvious questions (Was it covered in blood?  Did you get a look at his face?  Did you call the police?  Does he know you saw him?), he tells me he merely kicked it to the curb so noone would step on it.  So weird.

Now That's Love

I love that my husband trusts me enough to cut his hair. Fortunately for him, I get a little better every time. In a few more years, I just might get to the point where it turns out like I mean it to...

Happy Election Day!

My thoughts about today...

PS I promise I was way more informed than I sound, although I do admit to voting out the whole school board AND city council in favor of my friends.  What can I say?  I'm loyal.  

Proposition Party

Last night we hosted a "California Proposition Party" because there are so many stinkin' propositions on the ballot this year and they were a bit much to muddle through by one's self.  So each person was assigned a proposition and given 12 minutes to layout the basics, list pros/cons, and field any questions.  Overall, it was a rousing success!  I felt waaaaaay more informed afterwards and was surprised by how many issues I would've mis-judged had I just merely used the quick blurb on the ballot to decided which way to vote.  It's amazing what just a teeny-bit of digging can reveal.  For example, my prop (#10) sounded great on paper, but after checking it out I discovered it was primarily funded by 4 billionaires looking to further line thier bulging pockets.  Seriously, it's a completely ridiculous proposition.  Glad I did some research first!  It was a great lesson on staying informed and understanding the issues.  Gee whiz, I am such a grown-up it's not even funny....

I made a cake decorated (more or less) like the California state flag!

Favorite quotes of the night:

"So after all those checks and balances..."  -Mike
"You end up with the world's best boy band!"  -Chad (interrupting Mike)

"Fill up your wine glasses, its abortion time."  -Matt*

"So does 1 bid-ness days equal 1.5 regular days?"  -Chad
"Yeah--God created the world in four bid-ness days."  -Erika

"How many gigawatts is that compared to the Back to the Future car?" -Mike
"Oh, you mean jigga-whats?"  -Matt

*[This might be a classic example of "you had to be there". ]
