New Reads and Crap You Really Don't Care About


I've added 3 new blogs to the Daily Bread. Diana over at Americans in Singapore, sent me this fantastic Bizarro cartoon. Tee hee. While perusing her blog list, I came across Geeky Dragon Girl at I Live Under a Rock and Krup at I'm Just Sayin'. They are now part of my daily blog reads. I recommend the same for you.

So Much it Hurt

Thomas and I went to see Brian Regan last night. When we first entered, we were accosted by a man with a t-shirt, a pen and a devilish gleam in his eye. He proceeded to ask us if we wanted to sign the t-shirt they were going to give Brian after the show. Huh? Did he not bring an extra shirt with him? Anyway, Brian Regan is going be the proud owner of a shirt with my signature on it, and Thomas' and my sister-in-law's, and my brother-in-law's and a bunch of other people he doesn't know. I'm sure he'll cherish it forever.

If you want to laugh so much you'll risk rupturing your spleen, I'd suggest going to see this funnyman should he be in your area.

Talkin' 'Bout the Car Wash, Girl

I got stuck in a car wash today. Well, my car and I got stuck. I was sitting there happily immersed in a mystical wonderland of bubbles, foam and splashing water, but after the final rinse, no green arrow. The plastic hangy down thingies didn't move. So I waited. Then I waited some more. Then, just when panic was starting to ensue, the very nice and very old attendant came up to my car and told me she was going to have to fix it. (the car wash, not my car) This made me very, very nervous, and caused me to have visions of the entire car wash falling on us, leaving us under a pile of mechanical arms and spray nozzle rubble. But after pointing to the various parts of the car wash (as though she possessed magical powers and could fix them with her index finger), and trying to move the plastic hangy down thingies by hand, she finally went in and pushed some buttons and I was free.

I have no idea why I just shared that with you. I guess because until today, I was a stuck-in-the-car wash virgin.

Take Care,
The Bablatrice- who just wrote a lot of nothing.


  1. I'm glad you liked the cartoon; it just seemed so "you". Thanks for the recommendation, hope I'll see some new visitors. :D

  2. Diana - You're more than welcome.

  3. Hey - you can't get stuck in a car wash and not blog it. You did the right thing. I could never claim such an experience. I'm not only a stuck-in-a-car-wash virgin, I'm a car wash virgin. It's true. Should you ever see a giant ball of dirt pull into your driveway, moving in a manner unlike any normal ball of dirt that didn't have a vehicle burried somewhere inside it - it means FWG has come to visit. Run like hell.

  4. My car was that bad, too. I seriously had dirt falling off in chunks. That's probably why the car wash broke.

  5. I think my car might be as dirty as FWG's. Now that my brother doesn't live near the $1 car wash anymore it just doesn't get washed. So sad.
