Rock on, me

So assuming I can count correctly (and oh, Reader, what a large assumption that is), this is my tenth post in ten days. Never before has the Pic-Dem aspired to such sustained verbosity. Party hats and Sidecars for everybody!

Also: yesterday (today, when I write this; yesterday, by the time it posts; unspecified-future-date, when you read it) turned out to be not nearly as incredibly dreadful as I thought it was going to be. Hooray for unborne-out paranoia! And today (tomorrow, future, etc.), my favorite Hippish Clothing Boutique is having a moving sale, and Laura and I are going to go have breakfast at the Crystal Cafe (Grand Junction’s girliest restaurant!) and then go shop until we, or our strictly limited cashflows, drop.

And now a piece of family dialogue which reveals our unfortunate prejudices.

Fisher: Mama, Hippie [his stuffed hippo] wants to kiss you goodnight.
Me: Well, I don’t usually let hippies kiss me, but… [bending over for a peck from Hippie]
Fisher: It’s OK, Mama. He’s not that kind of hippie that doesn’t have a job or something.

    Ok whenever I’m fortunate enough to have children…I’m hoping they are as clever as yours. Congrats on the 10 days of posts.

    Hey, Molly, is your posting streak careening to a halt?!?! Post something, ANYthing! 🙂
