1. Yesterday I mowed the lawn. I started out trying to avoid the crickets but an hour later it was almost like I was aiming for them...

2. I decided in a brilliant flash of craftiness that I could make a hair fascinator (hair clip adorned with feathers worn for wedding hairdo's...) myself instead of paying 100 bucks for it (actually 3 of them...) - end result; fantastic hair fascinators + what appears to be a bird explosion in my living and sitting room. (Evidently the cat enjoys not only birds - but feathers too. Who'd have thunk.) Her playing with them might have been what kept me awake ALL NIGHT.

3. My stagette weekend is actually in the process of being planned already. So... do you think if I invite my future mother in law it might make for a tamer weekend - or a wilder one?

4. This morning all hell broke loose at my house at exactly 8:25 am. Which, of course, is when the bus comes. First, my grandfather came THEN to get a tool I borrowed from him... and then decided to go inspect how I had mown the lawn... apparently I passed his inspection. Then Babs got upset because her pants kept falling down and decided she MUST have them changed... and then acted like putting socks on was an equivalent task to solving a rubix cube. I suddenly realized it was garbage day... and then almost let Babs get on the bus without her homework (which means the entire neighbourhood got to witness me running down the street wearing red pants with reindeer allover them paired very fetchingly with a red pj top covered in fuzzy penguins and my hair standing up all about my head in a radiant halo of fuzzy wild curls....at least I grabbed my movie star glasses before hand... and oh yeah - crocs. HAWT.) Upon reaching the bus I realized that Roo was nowhere - oh gosh - I think he's still preening in the mirror trying to get his hair to stop standing on end... I get him on the bus... I return to the house and sink down to the floor - let out a wimper and crawl into the kitchen - because -

5. All of this was BEFORE my coffee. I have a feeling this is going to be a rather long day...

elizabeth said...

po - yes. Should have the coffee maker in the bedroom. Might put that on my to do list...

real live lesbian - really. Truly. You do not. It was pure 100% awful.

Wow, your morning does sound eventful...hope your day is less crazy..

so exciting that your stagette party is being planned..im sure it will be hysterically funny whether your mother in law is there or not (you definitely should invite her though)

:)

Slyde said...

im still invited to the staggette, arent i?

elizabeth said...

being brazen - I am indeed looking forward to it... and interested in seeing what crazy plans they come up with...

slyde - thought they booked you for the entertainment??

Expeirence has shown that mother-in-laws make for a more wild weekend, not a more tame one. A few drinks makes them a brand new person.

Slyde can come to the stagette... but I might make him work.

It is going to be so much fun, you should see what I bought you to wear!

Before Coffee?
There is no such thing as before coffee!

Not much of an Entymologist eh? I heard a great ponderance the other day..(ahem)..
If all of the insects on the planet died, all life on Earth would cease to exist within a few years..
if all Humans died, all life on Earth would flourish! Now how do you feel about killing crickets?!

Tamara said...

LOL at Donn Coppens. I think the world would do quite well without our Parktown Prawns, actually.

Elizabeth: You must be a superhero. All of that before coffee? Tres impressive.

elizabeth said...

lotus - might be fun hey? She's a sweetheart.

boon - as long as they arent' any pink feathers.... *SHIVER*

donn - well, usually I avoid killing anything (unless it comes in the house - then it's fair game - kids excepted) but on this particular day there seemed an explosion of populous that was in dire need of reparation... enter lawn more. I had a point system. Very entertaining. I won.

tamara - Oh... I don't know if I could be considered a super hero - though it did take something of a heroic effort not to have a meltdown and go hide under the bed...
