Listy McLister II

Things that suck about my life:

  1. I have had Bohemian Rhapsody in my head all the livelong day. I will consider surgical removal if it does not leave soon.
  2. Writer's block
Things which rock about my life:
  1. This week is less intense at work, so it's not a total disaster that I'm operating at about 80% of capacity.
  2. Other Insurance Company will pay for a rental while my car is in the shop.
  3. Weird little joy blips where I suddenly feel like dancing a bit, just not to Bohemian Rhapsody.
  4. Dennis is feeding me homemade pesto tomorrow night, with amazing bread from La Farine.
  5. I have kitty shoes!
  6. Endless supply of Diet Crack and onion dip leftover from party.
  7. News of monkey fairness.
  8. I get to teach Godly Play for the first time on Sunday.
  9. Bonus Simpsons tonight.
  10. I'm making good progress on my niece's ren faire costume, by doing a little bit at a time. It will be ready to be shipped out on Monday.
  11. Biofreeze. I want that big huge pump bottle on the website. Or maybe just a vat of it that I can dip my body into.
  12. I attributed this week's bible study guide to my friend's dog instead of to TheRev, who actually wrote it. The dog looked rather pleased with himself.

send for reinforcements, 'cause there's too much here for me to love

That line from Hi-Lo and Inbetween by Neil Halstead is really working for me this week. Despite the fact that I am in pretty much constant pain from the accident (this is just getting embarassing...there's nothing less glamorous than whiplash), there's still a lot of good happening. And I have so many inflatable monkeys peering at me from all over the house. They really got around during the party; I'm still finding them.

Life is pretty freakin' good.

drink up me 'earties yo ho

The pirate party kicked booty.

I wore my kitty shoes, but put an eyepatch on one of them so it would be more pirate-y. Very dangerous pink kitty. I also wore a pirate t-shirt from Torrid and figured I was sufficiently pirated. Until the real pirates showed up. I was dramatically out-pirated by that group. (photo left)

I'm not sure you can see the fork-hand in the photo. It's a regular hook hand but with a fork instead of a hook. For the pirate who be tossin' a salad, arrrrrr.

Sea shanteys were sung and played on kazoos, Dennis manned the grill, Jon brought his fabulous guacamole, a baby got out of his diaper and ran around naked, people swam, bad pirate jokes were told, and it was a fine time. I had enough help with cleanup that I didn't dread getting out of bed this morning.

I have a metric buttload of food and beverages left over (surprise) but I'm sure that it will not go to waste. I don't have to buy Diet Crack at all for the next month, and the beer will be transferred to the next party, which I think will be Ryan's PumpkinFest. Yes, I do have about 6 bottles of Two-Buck Chuck left over. Surprise. We drank a mess of tequila, though. I guess the lure of Margarita in a Skull Cup was just too much to pass up.

St. Ned's Jr. High youth group pool party next weekend spontaneously got itself a pirate theme, as I'll be sending all the decorations and toys that way. Arrrrrrr!
