Before I left the house today, I specifically asked that the garbage and other odds and ends on the kitchen counter be picked up. When I returned, the same little piles were winking at me as if they had won. I made a reminder announcement, complete with pointing gestures. The boy enthusiastically replied "Oh, THAT crap? I wasn't sure what you meant." I assured him that, in the future, I would not be disappointed to find that any junk on the counter had been dealt with.
When I walked onto the front porch, I saw this little arrangement...
|So now we are camouflaging dirty dishes?|
I do not think my niece was the guilty party, but something seems a little shady in her getaway scene.
|What's in the purse lady?|
Nobody is fessing up to this crime against blue people...
|Who hates the Blue Man Group?|
The cars are still vrooming, and you will be happy to know that green efforts are being made with the addition of a Prius.
|I think this one makes more noise on the track than its real life counterpart does on a highway.|
I honestly don't know what a chocolate covered cherry smells like. Indulgent? Maybe? But do I really want to be tempted...to eat the room deodorizer?
|Mmmmmm, toxic gel.|
Well, the New York State Fair opens across town this week. I read that it was recently named one of the best state fairs. I bet it was in the top 50. (OK, I admit, it was supposedly in the top 5.) In case the usual cast of deep fried food offerings wasn't promising to clog your arteries tight enough, this year there has already been talk of the Big Kahuna Donut Dog. It will be a hot dog wrapped in bacon served in a maple glazed doughnut, instead of a bun. There's no word from the fair on the amount of cholesterol in the meal. (I am pretty sure if you are ordering it, you've left your Weight Watchers' point conversion chart and the low cholesterol diet sheet your doctor gave you at home on the counter.) There is a wine tent at the Fair as well. Speaking of which, make sure to see what randomness Stacy has going on this week!
