Conversations at our house, Sister edition

When D$ was on his epic post-PhD cross-country trip he stopped for a few nights in LA and stayed with my sister. Apparently one of the nights they were out bar-hopping when she made some sad-sack comment about how she is going to be an old maid forever, bla bla bla. D$ told her to shut the f*ck up and stop being so ridiculous. About a week after he got back they had the following text message conversation.

Big Sis: I know you think I'm going to die an old maid, but I just wanted to let you know that I have three* in rotation right now.

D$: I believe it was you who thought you'd die an old maid. I am just worried that you will die of syphilis before you get that chance.

Big Sis: That's a fair point.

*Three men. Men love my sister and my sister loves men. 
**Dolly is far too classy to be an old maid or to EVER have an STD. She is one class act. This photo, however, is from one of the best movies of all time, which happens to be about Burt Reynolds and some whores.None of those whores had syphilis either because they were also classy ladies.

Some people's kids

I'm so glad that there are people in the world like the one's who made this video. It reminds me that I am not the only person in the world whose desire to have children is fueled in large part by their potential to entertain me and/or freak out other people.

My sister is really on the money this week. She sent me this video with the explanation that it reminds her of herself. The resemblance is, in fact, striking.

Living the Dream

So you may have guessed that D$'s return to Portland and my total defection from the blog world are at least marginally related. You would be right. Here's a brief update.

Having him home is both awesome and infuriating. I'm not gonna lie - at first I was all snuggle-demandy and lovey-dovey-goo-goo and up in D$'s business. There was a lot of face-touching, people. It was serious love time in our apartment.

But then the work week started and I kept coming home from work and the house wasn't exactly the way I left it.  The man left piles of his stuff everywhere and kept forgetting to eat the cake I made him. Turns out I had gotten really used to having total control over my environment (this will not be at all surprising to anyone who knows me in real life). I had to work very hard not to nag.

Now we are pretty much back to normal. I've gained back all the weight I lost working out all the time and eating the same food every day. The bedcovers are infuriatingly messed up but I come home to a decent meal most nights. The cats have almost forgiven us and demonstrated their total preference for D$ over me. We are finally caught up on episodes of Psych.

Also, Dr. D$ is living the post-PhD dream. This means that that he grew a beard and is brewing beer.

I like the beard but do you have any idea how messy beer-making is??

Facts on Cats

Cats are natural manicurists.

Cats are one source of ringworm infection.

By the one and only Rich (discovered when my sister posted it for my other sister on Facebook. The women in my family really enjoy cats and creepiness)
