Home/Family

More moving fun, unrelated news, and a funny grammar-related exchange.

Himself's departure got pushed back yet another day when our soon-to-be-former landlord decided to make a stink about the floors. (He was supposed to leave Monday morning but the friend slated to help load the truck has his work schedule screwed over, so he loaded it by himself and then racked out because he was in no shape to drive.) I hope he makes it out ahead of any weird weather from the hurricane since my memories of how people drive in NC in pouring rain with <10' visibility are disturbing.

In unrelated news: Collapse )

Mom overheard the following today at work. (Gallagher is an English teacher at Evergreen HS.)
Student: What's up?
Gallagher: A preposition.
Student: What?
Gallagher: Interrogative.
[later]
Student: What's up?
Gallagher: A direction.

ex_dervish821, a two-pack of plain auto-sensor nightlights and a spoon rest were mailed today.
dahunk2003: I spotted a bolt of pre-printed panels to make an accent-size (12-14") square pillow with the Seattle Mariners logo among the markdown fabric when I was out today. Couldn't beat the price of $1 per panel, so I bought one and would like to make you a pillow if you'd like one. Drop me an e-mail for details.
