There's Snow Place Like Home

I love snow, but I think that dreaming of a white Christmas may be a lot more fun than actually having a white Christmas. Just saying.

Not-So-Grand Theft

[I found this little jewel of a news story lounging around in my email archives. I can't believe I never posted it here as part of my ongoing series of "Weird and Wacky" news. For the record, I'm sure the woman breathed a huge sigh of relief when 9 of her missing Fruit Roll-Ups were recovered, unharmed. ~cn]

Woman reports theft of 2o Fruit Roll-Ups

Two teenagers broke into a Cabin Lane Drive home and ate several Fruit Roll-Ups, before the homeowner caught them lounging around her house at 11:30 p.m. Saturday, according to an Athens-Clarke police report. One of the teens told the woman he was friends with her niece and that she let them in. But after the teens left, the woman noticed a broken kitchen window and 20 missing Fruit Roll-Ups. The teens also took a jug of fruit juice and several pieces of jewelry, police said.
The pair split up upon leaving, but police later found them in the neighborhood and were able to return nine of the Fruit Roll-Ups to the woman. Police also found a bag of marijuana on one of the teens, according to the report. news@onlineathens.com | Story updated at 8:42 pm on 9/27/2009

Panic Attack

I am certain that "Panic" is the inevitable offspring of the unholy union of "Procrastination" and "Deadlines." Ack! So much to do....so little time left to put off doing it.

Serenity now.....

Good grief.

A Word of Advice. . .

Never trust your dog with a Sharpie pen.

Even if sometimes he looks as cute (and innocent) as this.
I didn't take a pic of this particular Sharpie-chewing incident. [There have been several Sharpie adventures, plus one unfortunate event involving Jude sampling a bottle of neon green tempera poster paint.] However the photo below shows a taste (haha, pun intended) of the kind of havoc Hurricane Jude can create.

Kids These Days...

I'm not sure what to make of this, but my college girl asked if she could borrow something of out of my closet for a party she was attending tonight. Turns out the theme of the party is "Tacky Christmas."
It seems that "tacky" may not always be something you wear.
