Whassa matter you?

I am completely incoherent today.


So I'm going with bullets because coherent and cohesive prolonged thought is not possible.

* How in the hell did I live without Bloglines before? Google reader confounded me, but Holly MADE me try Bloglines, and I must admit that blog reading has never been easier. (Yes, I clicked ... and clicked ... and clicked ... hoping that all y'all had updated. What was I thinking?) Anyway, Holly, if you and Burgh Baby Mom ever decide on a cyber divorce, I'll be waiting in the wings for you!

* Z-man has returned home after his first year away at college/culinary school. He finished up in a blaze of glory and is now officially a sophomore. His homecoming has been highly anticipated by me and by him. On the whole, it was an expensive experience. It is not getting cheaper either. He's worth it, but sometimes I gag on it.

* I witness an honest-to-God miracle this week. I threw a pair of my jeans into the washer and -- too late -- realized there was a money order in the back pocket.

Crrrrrrrrrap. So much for THAT! Guess I must be wealthy beyond measure if I can just wash $25 away so easily.

Anyway, I put those jeans on this morning and felt a bulge in the back pocket. I pulled out a wad of receipts and other papers and, folded up inside -- IN PERFECT CONDITION -- was the money order.

I took it straight to the bank.

And, just think: had Blue Momma not made me do it, you & I would both be point & clicking our way around. I love it. Congrats on getting your money back.

Sarah said...

Yay for the money order miracle!!! That's wonderful!!

I've been confounded by readers all along. I just don't see the joy in them that I get from clicking my 5,000,000 links in my favs folder *G*

What? Money orders survive but not brand new tubes of Chanel lipstick? Sooooo not fair. :)

And glad to hear that Z-man is home again!

Oh Happy day! I think that sums it up for ya!
I myself still enjoy the point and click.

sometimes God blesses us with the little miracles like that, just when we need them to keep going strong.

Burgh Baby's Mom said...

Back off my wife, wumman. There is no divorce in the future.

Yay! for getting your money back!

Karen of Sillymonkeez said...

Hehe, did you eat the whole cake yourself or were you nice enough to share it?

Marmarbug said...

Careful there. Burgh baby is in love with her woman. I say cat fight!!
And holy crap I can't beleive your money order survived. I am impressed.
And that cake looked SO good.

Dude, man you are so lucky I can't believe it.

HRH said...

Can I still be the maid of honor if she marries you instead?

So, what makes bloglines better then Google because I am always looking for something easier...

Hey, can you check to see if the $100 check that I washed the other day is in your washer, because I can't find it at all.
