Diaper Diarists Gone Wild!

Dear Everybody Who I Will Be Getting Drunk With in Austin, You've been warned. Love, Amy PS. SUBMIT! So much to do before I leave tomorrow! At the ass-crack of dawn! I wish I had time to write something that would do justice to all your comments before I go, but you've gotta agree: that was a bigshitload of comments. Every one of which I am so grateful for, even if my forehead is a mite raw from all the smacking I gave it as I realized all the many million ways I've made the eating situation worse. Because I...

Usually I would at least bring some dip, but I don't think the new airport security rules allow for that much sour cream.

A Life More Ordinary

So I know my recent entries have been heavy on the photos and light on the...how you say?...wuh-urds? Yes, not so many words. But! This is merely a direct result of me and my boring, boring life where nothing ever happens. Behold! The biggest news stories of the past two weeks or so: 1) We are shopping for replacement windows, which means I have been talking a lot about "sashes" and "sculptured colonial muntin grids" and "I'm sorry, but your quote here appears to have an extra zero on the end and...what? Oh. Okay. I see." and "Please call a... Read more →
