the squirrels mock me by creating little tableaus with the flowers they destroy, originally uploaded by meanlouise. Speaking of squirrels…this is what greeted me in front of my house a few weeks ago. Sometimes, they leave them on the front porch right in front of the door.

Ghouls (13, halloween, whatever)

by meanlouise November 8, 2008 true life 2007

I decided to watch a 2007 SciFi Channel Saturday Night Craptacular, Ghouls. Ghouls was heavy on the crap-, light on the -tacular. I got it from Netflix, I don’t know why. I think it was because it starred Erin Grey. Or maybe I was on drugs. I abandoned it around the half-way mark.

by meanlouise August 7, 2008 true life 2007

There was no addendum to the last post, I was having technical difficulties that were beyond your control. My Spiritual Advisor has pointed out to me that, in the event I should ever need to have my factory-installed parts removed, I can ask for bionic ones.

In the event you thought our "wedding announcement" was fictional

by meanlouise August 4, 2008 true life 2007

It has come to my attention that some of you folks think the stories on this blog are made up, or at least exaggerated for comic effect. Hell no, boys and girls. A recent case in my point was our recently resurrected wedding announcement. Here’s an article from the Baltimore City Paper, “Southern Culture Hits […]

It's just good planning.

by meanlouise August 3, 2008 true life 2007
