Cleared for landing

Today’s surefire cure for the hangover…15 minutes with mom and half a bag of dill pickle chips. I was still tired and poorly motivated but the sickiness and headache went away (of course the two alleve and 4 shots of espresso probably helped).
David found a notebook for me, hallelujah. Of course, once I got the notebook I was completely incapable of finding the motivation for listing food and making grocery lists. But i have the notebook and that’s what matters. My living room is strewn with cookbooks, my email is full of links in emails with subject lines reading “recipes” or “here”.
The highlight of the day was a call from local superheroes Dena and Levi inviting us over to celebrate the new fire pit they installed in the back yard. It was beautiful. It truly was the nicest fire pit i’d ever seen. Dug out of the ground, lined with bricks around the outside, layer of gravel on the bottom and previously hidden/recently found river rock pavers edge the top of it. We also got to sit on the sturdy little benches that Levi had made just minutes before we got there.
I love eating food made over an open fire! We had veggie burgers and corn and potatoes!! They also got a s’mores kit with hand made marshmallows in it. So very good. handmade marshmallows taste like frosting!
I also got to swing on Dena’s special swing that levi made for her and set up in a tree. It was fun but my fear of heights and being out of control took over. Sad.
Came home to discover that things were not bad. Nothing chewed, no pee, nothing broken. It’s early, but I think the hormone/pheromone doohicky might actually be working. As I wrote this she made a deeply contented sigh. I love how many people told me (and rightly so) that perhaps Maddie would not be so issue ridden if I didn’t put rabbit ears on her for fun.
they’re probably right.
I’m off to bed early. I need to have some actual, non-drunken sleep tonight.
Special thanks to the super-duo for inviting us over for the maiden voyage of the S.S. Firepit! We had a most excellent time.


Another thing to add to my list of things that i’d never done but now I have…
Went to a 21+ punk show last night. I’m not a huge fan of punk music, it’s very loud and somewhat nonsensical and most of the songs sound the same and everyone drinks PBR because it’s cheap and it’s very very bad. We knew the people in the band so what the hell, we went and drank and had a good time.
and drank…
and the afterbar was across the street in a garage and you had to pay for the cup if you wanted to drink and we did, so we did.
A lot of stuff happened and suffice to say you probably won’t hear about it from me. The tamest thing was me drunk dialing Ireland at 4:30 in the morning (i’m pretty sure it was 10:30 in the morning there).
So taday is 2 alleve and 4 shots of espresso over ice and quiet. Even Ghengis looks hungover. I’m in the final stages of planning the food for the party. I went to go write out lists and I realized I don’t have a single notebook. Not a one. Anywhere. I think all the notebooks were kept in the desk and the desk and it’s contents went with the ex by default. I was at Target the other day and considered buying a notebook and didn’t. Lord, I can buy body glitter marketed to an 8 year old but a notebook? oh no, not a notebook, that’s just a waste of money. I’m sure David has one somewhere, hopefully he’ll wake up soon.
I think the food for this shindig is going to be the best I’ve done, yet!
If you’ve not been invited you should ask yourself what you’d done that was so ill-mannered that I would not invite you!
yobo out!
oh, PS to the guy with the Saturn coupe…sorry, dude.
