My dad once told me his biggest wish for his kids is that we will be able to afford and drive new cars…. Oh, and that we will also become vegetarians. You see, my dad is a mechanical engineer (and a vegetarian)… a blessing and a curse when it comes to the world automobiles. As… Continue reading Listen to your Father. And Stay Thristy, My Friends.
So, what have YOU been up to this summer? Us? Well, obviously we haven’t been writing blogs… but we have been doing this: And this: All in honor of this: And then we did this: And this. And this. :-( Then, it looked like all was well, so we did this: But, not an hour… Continue reading Hello! Long time no talk.
Allow me to be a bit sentimental – We’re getting ready to take Bustache on a trip this weekend – a process that this time involves getting him smogged. Not an easy feat for a 33 year-old vehicle. Besides, you know how 1 human year is equivilant to 7 dog years? I think the same… Continue reading Allow Me to be Sentimental
Did you know my first imaginary friend was a snail named Seemi? Unless you are a member of my immediate family, I bet you didn’t. Geez, I was a weird kid. (But apparently incredibly clever – an imaginary friend named “Seemi” (pronounced “See me”!?!) HA! I am a genius and didn’t even know it!). Anyway,… Continue reading When Imaginary Friends Become Real
Steve is out of town on a business trip. In Paris. PARIS. Insert sad/jealous/bitterbuttryingtobehappyforhim face. :-$ (Note – in case you are a stalker, may I remind you that my cross-fitting, 6’2″, MALE roommate is still in the house. And I have a scary 85 lbs dog who will, at the very least, get slobber… Continue reading If Only I was More Like a Dog
This Valentine’s Day I found love, happiness and salvation. This is what happened. Last week, I wrote this post. Two days later, I called my mom, and she said the post made her sad. After all the years she spent making me (and her other children) feel special on February 14 and instilling the importance… Continue reading Happiness is Valeting the Bustache
One of the fun perks of having a blog is that, among your daily statistic reports, you get to see the kind of terms people searched the internet for before they landed on your little piece of the web. Usually, this is helpful information provided to the blogger demonstrating how people come upon your website… Continue reading Fun with Search Engines
After yesterday’s post, you might be worried that Steve and I will never have children because they are really needy and get in the way of my frozen-yoghurt eating. But I have good news! We can now be cool with having kids! Why? Because I found this (Thanks, Gus the VW Bus!): How awesome, right!?!… Continue reading Update to Kiddos Quandary
Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and that got me thinking… Steve and I don’t celebrate an anniversary. We’ve been together 7ish years (see, I don’t even know how long… no anniversary to help me keep track!), and we’ve never really acknowledged when 1 year turned to 2 or when 5 turned to 6.… Continue reading Love is Like a VW Bus
It’s 2012. In fact… we are almost already 1/24ths through 2012! How in the heck did that happen? One day I’m building a Lego VW Bus and the next day I’m already 11 days behind on my New Year’s resolutions. Pffff… I guess I can’t complain too much, because our first 1/24ths of 2012 was… Continue reading It’s 2012
