  1. The Road to TJ

    In which our heroine begins a perilous journey from being TJ’s Canadian girlfriend to being a Wife of TJ through the medium of the Bitchin’ Montage.

    It occurs to me that some of you may not know this exists.

    Or may have forgotten.

    (Side Note: there must be some problem with Vimeo because it says this was 4 years ago, and I’m sure it was, like, 2. Right? It couldn’t be FOUR YEARS.)

  2. Netflux

    As you mäy have noticed, I’ve been on a bit of a Poirot “kick” lately. We own a bunch of the movies on DVD, and then I loaded up my Netflix DVD queue with a bunch of the ones we don’t have.

    Here’s a listing of my Netflix DVD activity since October:

    • Masterpiece Mystery!: Poirot: Cat Among the Pigeons

    • Masterpiece Mystery!: Poirot: Three Act Tragedy

    • Masterpiece Mystery!: Poirot: The Mysterious Affair at Styles

    • Poirot: Vol. 1

    • Poirot: Vol. 2

    • Poirot: Vol. 3

    • Poirot: Vol. 4

    • Masterpiece Mystery!: Poirot: Super Sleuths

    • Poirot: Vol. 5

    • Poirot: Vol. 6

    • Poirot: Vol. 7

    • Masterpiece Mystery!: Poirot: Hallowe’en Party

    • Masterpiece Mystery!: Poirot: Appointment with Death

    • Masterpiece Mystery!: Poirot: Mrs. McGinty’s Dead

    • Masterpiece Mystery!: Poirot: Five Little Pigs

    • Masterpiece Mystery!: Poirot: After the Funeral

    • Rosemary’s Baby

    Wait…What the…?

    Oh, right, I loaded a bunch of movies into the queue after Beth recommended them, back around Halloween. Then I ended up reshuffling the queue around.

    Turns out that Poirot: Vol. 8, 10, 11, and 12 are all listed as “Very Long Wait” and (presumably) 9 wasn’t available on the day when they were ready to send out my next DVD.

    So… yeah… “And now for something completely different” as the kids say :-)

TJ: 
I see that in celebration of the solstice she has changed from dark wine to light wine.

Symbolism, yo.

“riding the nightmare”
Tomorrow is my wife’s birthday.
I recently found out one of the reasons she has trouble sleeping is that she gets nightmares.
I drew this to remind her when she sets her mind to something, she is unstoppable.
And if she decided to face that nightmare and make friends with it and go on awesome adventures with it, she could.
Because she is the very best person I know.
Love you, honey.

♥^♥

Happy birthday, Beth. May the year ahead be filled with wine and people who understand your desire not to come in physical contact with them.

  10. I like this picture so much I can’t even think of anything snarky to say about it.

I have a doctor’s appointment at 4 to make sure I’m OK.

Doesn’t that seem fitting?

    I’m looking forward to consummatating this decision in Chicago.
