The Story Game: Jamie Edition

For a Good Time Call..., originally uploaded by Bearded Jon.

The girls and I added Jamie to "The Story Game" tonight. She even had fun.

I'd blog the girls' drawings and stories but Jamie took pictures of all the drawings (I only took one of mine) and I'm not allowed to blog her photos.

My Story: For a good time call...

All boozed up in her fez and zebra slippers, Zoe played songs from "The Wizard of Oz" on her squeeze box all night long.

Something you wear: Fez
Something you drink: booze
Someplace you don't want to be: Oz
Something you wear on your feet: zebra slippers
A name: Zoe
Something you hold in your hand: squeeze box

(there's a z in all my items, mind you)

Rosemary, Baby!!!

Chompr Action

Not to be confused with Rosemary's Baby (which I did make Jamie watch when she was about 8 1/2 months pregnant with Madeleine).

Two Things I Find Disturbing about Facebook

So I signed up for Facebook this afternoon and first of all, after more than 11 years of marriage, they want to notify Jamie that we're married and she has to "confirm" that we're married (whatever that means).

Then, this super powerful social networking tool gives me the option oto "Cancel Relationship". I've got a lot invested in our relationship (as she does to). How can they conscionably offer that? Are there no morals?

Freshly Mowed

Freshly Mowed, originally uploaded by Bearded Jon.

And on the seventh day he rested or so it is claimed. The seventh day must have been Monday or Saturday or quite possibly any day of the week other than Sunday because Sunday is chore day around here. Taking out the trash, doing the weekend dishes and... the lawn. Always on Sunday. Always the lawn.

I scoop the poop (sorry but there's no nicer way to put it but plenty of tasteless ways) and Jamie pushes the electric mower (see also 30 Seconds of Jamie and the Electric Mower). I'm on the lookout for an electric (hopefully cordless) weed whacker so I can do the edges.
