Even a pen can be a deadly weapon.

Do you read xkcd?  No?  You should.  He makes me laugh.

I hope the Pilgrims are bringing shovels

So, you’ve heard the following joke, right?

If April Showers bring May Flowers, what do May Flowers bring?


Well, here in Colorado, I hope the Pilgrims are bringing shovels.

This is the awesome surprise we woke up to today!

This is the awesome surprise we woke up to today!

All that beeping you heard was not the garbage truck backing up. It was what happened when we tried to play the script back from when we looked out the window this morning.

This is, after all, a family show.

Edited to add: At least by Noon the roads were steaming and/or already dry.  Reason #523 I love it here.

Excuse Me

Claire was “reading” quietly in her room.  As is her custom, she’s most happy when every book from her book bin is strewn about her.  She loves it when nearly every inch of the floor is covered.  She’s pretty easy going when it comes to putting her things away, so I try not to panic whenever I come upon such a disaster zone.

“Claire, it’s almost time for lunch!” I called to her from the kitchen.  “Are you ready to come eat?”

“Almost, Momma!” she yelled from her room.  “I really made a mess!”

“Oh no!  Really?” I said, as I was walking down the hallway to investigate this mess and why she was giggling.

“Yeah, and YOU’RE going to clean it up!” she said with mischievous lilt in her voice.

“Excuse me!?” I said incredulously, as I made it to her doorway.

“Momma, did you fart?” she asked, bursting out in laughter.  “You did; didn’t you!”

“What?  No!” I exclaimed, and I started to tickle her.

“Well, you said ‘Excuse me!’” she said laughing even harder.

By that time, we were both laughing hysterically.  After we calmed down, I explained what I’d meant, and we picked up the books together.  But, now, every time I say ‘Excuse me’, for whatever reason, I can’t help but laugh to myself.  🙂

What can I say? The 90s are woven into my psyche.

I love xkcd.  If you’re not familiar with his comics, you should check out his site. I’ve posted his comic about Rock Band before…

Even the warning he has on his site cracks me up:

Warning: this comic occasionally contains strong language (which may be unsuitable for children), unusual humor (which may be unsuitable for adults), and advanced mathematics (which may be unsuitable for liberal-arts majors).

And, that pretty much sums it up.  Oddly enough, I am a liberal-arts major, and his stuff makes me laugh!

I came across this one this weekend, and I just had to post it.

90s Flowchart

90s Flowchart by xkcd

Just so you know…I may or may not know all the words to one of those songs, and I may or may not be singing them right now.  To the extreme, I rock a mic like a vandal. 😉

I’ve always wondered why it’s called FURniture…

One of our friends forwarded us a funny email. This makes me laugh, so I decided to share!

Honestly, I haven’t fielded many complaints about our pets, but if we ever have to, here is a handy list. 😉

To All Non-Pet Owners Who Visit & Like to Complain About Our Pets:

1. They live here. You don’t.

2. If you don’t want their hair on your clothes, stay off the furniture. (That’s why they call it ‘fur’niture..)

3. I like my pets a lot better than I like most people.

4. To you, they are animals. To me, they are adopted sons who are
short, hairy, walk on all fours and don’t speak clearly.
