completely random tidbits of non-importance...

...there is something about Matt Berninger's voice that melts my insides into big wet puddles

...same goes for Mark Kozelek's voice

...sadly, I realized after the fact that I forgot to put lime juice in all the salsa I canned this past weekend

...from Neil Gaiman's story "Forbidden Brides of the Faceless Slaves in the Nameless House of the Night of Dread Desire":

Above her, and away in the deep forest behind the house, night things whooped and skrarked.

never heard the word skrarked before, but I find it be such a perfect little word

...came across this picture as I was searching for something way back on the original incarnation of this blog

while I adore Gray as he is today, I have to admit that I miss this little peanut

...a huge note of thanks to the oh-so-helpful and very kind woman at the jury office

...the move itself and the money-pit-personality of our new home are making money tight around here...which is fine...except for the fact that I'm really going to have to cut back on Christmas gifts this year, and that makes me sad

...the smell of the herb baking is making me salivate...perhaps it's time I make some lunch for Gray and me

Awww, wee little Gray. He's still totally adorable now, but that's definitely a heart melting picture. Also, I might be slightly biased here, but I just wanted to say you have fine taste in music ;)

*hugs* I hear you on the Christmas gifts thing. As you know I had to do that last year (and depending on how things go might have to again this year) and it made me so sad.

He is so cute! He is cute today, too, but you can't help looking back. :)

I hear you on the cutting back on Christmas. I basically did the bare minimum last year. I have my fingers crossed that this year I can repay some of the generosity of others...

"baby photos" of our kids always stir memories ..when you get older they even make you cry (not depressed cry)...we even realize how innocent we were back then. All too soon they are grown up. *sigh*
but then.. you have more time for reading and crafting!

as for Christmas.. worry only about your family. And just tell others you have to skip christmas this year..we've all done it.. and more than once!

"Don't Worry..Be Happy" lol

On my side, we have no kids left in the family and so last year we made the decision to do away with the gift giving. It was an awesomely non-stressful 1/2 Christmas (and I say 1/2 'cause there was still the whole gift giving thing for HB's side).

And I love Gaiman if for no other reason than his use of words like skrarked.
