    I don't watch, but I'll reminisce out on YouTubes of shows from the 70s.

Since I don't own a Richard, Edna, or Glen (yet), I have a completely limp black cat called Gluey and an out-of-production IKEA klappar rav fox (w/ the baby) we named Stoner (baby is named Tweeker) because, well, Stoner looks completely high and Tweeker looks like he needs a fix. O___o

    Food from aforementioned Old Nelson corner store.

    Congratulations on your upcoming marriage!!
    I'm married to my Twitter sweetheart. =D

    Can you cook?
    Please document your culinary adventures via blog! Would love to follow along!
    With a proper kitchen (and even a not-so-proper kitchen), if I put my mind to it, yes. I miss living next to a grand market, like Atwater Marché, that has fresh, local, organic ingredients, and a spacious kitchen to concoct & experiment, but maybe one day again.

    Thanks for commenting on my short-person-concerned-with-stinky-hair comment on Karen's blog; from your comments, I liked you instantly (not creepy, I swears, I'm not creepy)....

    Wonderful, safe, & bright 2016 wishes to you!!

  2. I replied (at length) to you on Karen's blog so all I'll say here is thanks so much for sharing!! *hugs* And I love the name Edna! I can imagine Edna to be a beautiful, graceful creature who patters after you all over the house and gazes at you adoringly out of loving brown eyes, tail wagging gently but constantly. Goodness gracious, I hope you don't have a relative named Edna now because I was just trying to paint a picture of your future dog. xx

  3. OMG, lol, I'll take that Edna!! XD

    1. Hahaha but what about Richard and Glen? They might be fine fellows too! Do you and the hub have plans to really get some furry new additions at some point?

    2. Hi! I would love a Richard & Glen but it probably won't be for a few years. We're relocating and all that so when we're "settled" (whatever that means, lol). ;-)

    3. haha well I look forward to all kinds of tales involving these new and already beloved characters once you welcome them into the family!
