My Broken Dream

Oh, did I not mention I'd be going on blog hiatus?

Yeah, I didn't know it myself. Just been busy with the usual multitude of worthwhile philanthropic pursuits--rescuing kittens from trees, helping old people cross busy streets, making lamps for the lamp-deprived people who live in my computer.

Pretty standard.

I wish I could tell you that I've been spending my time shopping for a gorgeous set of patio furniture on which Holly can perch her shapely arse when she comes to visit (whenever THAT will be). Alas, it would seem that dream has flitted away on a passing breeze I like to call auto repair.

Yes, our car is in the shop...again. This time it's the water pump and timing belt.

Joy.

And by joy, I mean not joy.

Sorrow. Debilitating, blog-defeating sorrow.

What might have been...

Photobucket


has become...

Photobucket


*sigh*

Hey, at least it comes with a handy bucket to catch my falling tears, right?

Ahhhh, hope the car bets better soon. And Holl would still come over and sit on that chair. Hell I think she'd even sit in that bucket. She's cool like that. :D

I'm so sorry! I can't express how sad that would be. And I will refrain from, ahem, mentioning that I just bought patio furniture an hour ago, ahem...I mean, so sorry, really I am.

I really like what might have been better, but that's just me.
Sorry about the car. My van got a flat last weekend, which changed some plans for us, too.

I just wanna know what's on the rolls there. It's an interesting shade of sea foam green, but I can't quite tell what it's for...

That bucket makes the picture. I'm going to get one for my office now. Stupid bathroom is SEVERAL STEPS away!

missburrows said...

What? What? Noooo! But if you go, who will I stalk? You were my first blogger!!! No!!!!!!

(I have a bucket you can borrow so that you can have a complete set.)

Deb said...

Oh, honey, I feel your pain. I think my new curtains are about to sink into a plumbing disaster hole, along with any/all fun for the next six months.

at least you have a pot to piss in!

sybil law said...

Hey, that bucket is multifunctional! You can turn it upside down and SIT on it, too! OR it can be an ottoman!
I really don't know what you're complaining about...
Haha
Sucks about the car. :(

Blondie said...

Oh how I have missed thee ... let me count thy ways.

Bee Repartee said...

I thought I'd have to rescue you. I had visions of you half eaten by dogs, under Mt. Laundry, muttering something about falling and can't get up..or Gerard Butler or something.

Dapoppins said...

I can't sleep and you haven't posted anything.

It is all your fault.

have you finished that lamp yet?

Meg said...

Sit out on your patio. Get some sunlight. You'll feel better!
