Load up The Salt Truck, Mother...

We're getting ready to hit the road for Chicago and this is the view out the kitchen window:



Snow... in October. The old lady just got back from the store and said it's basically white-out conditions on the road. I guess that's life in the Big Mitten. Stupid Mitten. If we don't make it back alive, it's been nice knowin' ya.

I'm going to try to post from my 'rent's house... we'll see. Their computer is in the room that Miss O sleeps in -- I'll have to keep the tip-tappin' of the keys quiet so as not to disrupt her slumber. She's crabby enough with a good night's sleep -- a sleep deprived Miss O is not a pretty sight.

All right then... where are my galoshes...

Have a safe trip.
I'm starting a blog and it is your fault.

Damn, snow already? We're staving it off so far here in Germany. I hope our snow is minimal at best and doesn't come until Christmas at the earliest. Here's to wishful thinking!

Best wishes on your trip - may it be safe and full of post-y fun. I'm a crabbydad blog addict. *sigh*

It's cold here, with a chance of flurries tomorrow. I actually had to drag out my coat today. Just last week it was 76 degrees. Wrong, wrong, WRONG! I hates me some winter, yes siree Bob.

Hey Rose, we can start a group. Crabbydad addicts anonymous. Ummm...except we're not exactly anonymous. Oh, never mind. Just keep reading.

Kim and Rose,
Count me in for the CDAA group.

I choose to consider myself a fan.

All right, people, simmer down. You all clearly need to turn off your computers, go outside and get some perspective. However, if you are interested in joining CDAA, you have to follow the twelve steps:
1. The first step is admitting that everyone but you has a problem.
2. The second step is to realize that you are powerless to change the morons of the world and, therefore, can do nothing but bitch about this fact incessantly.
3. The third step is to isolate yourself from the outside world and simmer in your own solitary stink-stew.
4-11. Make lots of lists about all the things you're going to do to improve yourself and then ignore said lists.
12. Start a blog hoping to attach some sort of significance to your pathetic existence and check constantly throughout the day to see if anyone has left a comment, thereby validating the fact that you're still alive.

Congratulations! You've taken the first step toward becoming the friendless hermit you've always dreamed of becoming!

Kim said...

I've got all 12 steps covered. I guess that makes me the supreme queen of friendless hermits!

Bring on the orb and scepter!

*waves at rose

consider me a crabbydad fan as well. Saaay... crabbydad, that's a fine pair of pants you have on there.

Rose said...

BoP how I miss you! I really need to visit PiL again ...

CrabbyDad - too late, I, too, have covered all twelve steps (I'm a sucker for lists, I tell you!). I've been blogging for years here and there and have found my home on myspace of late.
