Tip Grundzilla goes to the circus


It’s intermission at the big apple circus and the show is just BRILLIANT. Totally silly, and I don’t know who is laughing harder: Mike or Twelve!

In our home if it's not done no blame but an assurance of flakiness. RT @nytimesstyle: Who Writes Your Thank-You Notes? # Powered by Twitter Tools

want to rebut coworker: ER visits aren't always instead of primary care, often advice of doc! #eavesdroppersneverwin # Powered by Twitter Tools

Dirt in my bars

I pulled the bike out this morning to rode to work and as the thumper shook the spiders out if their hiding places (and I carefully picked them out and placed them on nearby trees) I noticed something:


Hey, is that DIRT in my bars?!

And then I remembered how we got home so late from our trip a week ago, and I slowly pulled into our driveway, and then stopped short, and then tipped over. I landed on the grass next to the driveway and was totally fine, and for some reason I never thought to check the bike.

It feels like decades since I've been in the office! # Powered by Twitter Tools

Strange Brew and Easter Bunnies

Mister Seven and I are at home tonight while Mike and Twelve are at scouts. I asked Seven what he wanted to do tonight and he chose watching Strange Brew until bedtime.


And what could go better with a movie than a chocolate bunny from Easter? (you have no idea how hard it was to not eat the bunnies.)

(and also, both Seven and Twelve love Strange Brew! It’s one of the most hilarious things about them.)
