No Whining Wednesday Whatchamajiggy



Ok, quick and dirty (no, Cindy, it's not the SEX story...sorry!  BUT, keep checking back.  You never know when the SEXY SEX story might pop up)!

I was at the Amish Market after work today (I got a basket of the most delicious strawberries and this wee basket of tiny pears for 99 cents - I have no idea why I even go to the regular grocery store) and I'm perusing the asparagus when one of the stockboys walks by and kind of trips on ...nothing?... There was a woman about 35ish and her daughter standing next to me.  The mom (quietly & in a sing-songy voice) said to the daughter, "toe pick!"  I giggled like a dork because ...well, because I'm a dork, but also because *I* say that in my head every time I trip (which is a lot, granted, but I don't trip on *nothing*.  I trip on real, tangible things, like lint and dust and AIR!  I'm not a total spaz.)   If you've never seen "The Cutting Edge", you probably have no idea why this is funny to me, but I've seen it 5320 times and I love that stupid ice skating movie so much!

So, there was that little giggle and my bowl of strawberries, grapes, pineapple and pears and I'm pretty content.  It's in the low to mid 70's all week, I have a few new readers (HI there, new readers!!  I don't like saying "followers".  It sounds all Charles Manson-y)  and I'm ready for Wednesday!  I'm not even going to mention (I'm such a lying liar.  I'm TOTALLY gonna' mention it.) how excited I am about new episodes of Bones, The Office, Glee, and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia this week, because there's more to life than teevee, ya' know? (No there's not)

Tell me kids, what good things do YOU have going on this week?  Tell me, tell me, tell me!!

Yeah, you get the idea.

We've had a terrible summer here. But now, in mid-September, it seems to have arrived. Sunny and high twenties all week. Plus, on Sunday, I've got a Football/Hockey double-header on the dockett. Woo-woo!

I have guitar lessons with my sexy, sexy instructor. I'm a little over excited about it..

High 20s, Doran? I believe we've discussed this "metric" "system" nonsense.

Well. I took a personal day on Friday because my car (Happy birthday, Stacey!) is due for her 15-month/18.5k mile physical. I had no idea how long it was going to take, and I have an engagement party to attend on Saturday afternoon, so I decided to ask my boss for Friday. I have the time, I may as well use it! So I called the dealership and asked them how long it was going to take, and as it turns out, no longer than a regular oil change! So yay, my whole Friday is pretty much free! The appointment is at 9 a.m., and from there I'm going straight to the big mall, so I can shop while all the stupid children are trapped in school! Woo hoo! Also, I only have to show up at the engagement party because FINALLY I'm invited to a wedding I don't have to be a bridesmaid for! That hasn't happened in SO LONG.

Tonight I've got class, then I'll get home just in time to get in bed and watch Glee, then I'll be heading off to sleep nice and early. Hooray for that too! Now if only I had some delicious pears...

Jesopus I'm slow! I'm reading your story about the mom talking to the daughter and I stop at the words toe pick, and I'm sitting here thinking, why on earth would a mother tell her kid to pick her toes in the grocery store? Then I get to the ice skating and a very quiet little ding goes off in my very tiny brain.

Back to your regularly scheduled program.

Fuck (can I say fuck here?) NWW! Where is the sex story? How am I supposed to go on with my life? I come here every couple of days thinking, this must be the sex story day. It never is. I feel so cheated.

Also, beware - gp has arrived.

Hehe! When my daughter started playing hockey she was learning to stop like a hockey player (to the side, I dunno the technical term for it) and she fell nearly everytime. She used to make fun of me because I wore these bright white figure skates. So, whenever she fell I would skate over, stop and say "toe pick!" Now, instead of falling, she sprays a 2 foot high wave of ice at me when she stops like a pro. Maybe I should learn to keep my mouth shut, eh? All of which is a really long way of saying: I totally get it!

Guilty Partner - Why, hello there! Thanks for coming by and please, have a pear as a welcome gift!

Deist - She's pretty adorable. I don't have quite the same thoughts about her as you, but I do enjoy her very much!

Lizzie - *drool* Go to El Pollo Loco for me, too. Man, I miss the fast food out west.

The Management - I don't know what that number means. 20 degrees is coats, scarves and gloves weather, mister! Enjoy your ARCTIC TUNDRA summer. ;)

Trouble - Your crush updates crack me up! I love that you've found a new passion.

AvB - You always have the best plans! Oooh, I have pears, a whole basket of the wee things. I'll share.

Cindy - Oh yeah, "toe pick" and "toe pick" are totally different. Also, one day, I will reward your loyalty! PS: You can absolutely say FUCK here! PPS: You made me snort a grape into my sinus cavity when you called me a Sex Scammer on Pajiba.

Eyvi - THANK you! I tried to find a clip of Moira Kelley saying it, but I couldn't find one. I freakin' love that ice spray wave from the side stop thing. It looks so cool!

Well that had to hurt.
