the ol’ hitcheroo

So, for those of you who haven’t already heard the news on Ty’s blog, he joined the world of question-poppers in the wee-est of Halloween hours, dressed in his glow-in-the-dark skeleton gear and armed with a bag full of the tastiest chocolate candies in the world. (It being Halloween and all.)

I said yes.

Like, duh.

(Details to follow…!)


makeover time!

“What?!” says Palin. “I don’t get to keep them?”

guinea pig toes!

I recently signed up to our local Takoma Park listserve, primarily to keep abreast of town meetings, local crime, stuff like that.

There was little I could have done to prepare for the onslaught of insane-o emails about everything from missing mouthguards to deer eating people’s vegetable gardens. The best part is that some of these emails actually get responses. Sometimes, I think I’d rather not be aware of my neighbors’ more peculiar banks of knowledge. Or, in this case, their youtube-watching habits.

subject [PEN] guinea pig toes

does anyone in the hood know how to clip our new guinea pig’s toenails, or know a place nearby where we could get it done? We understand there is very much a right way and wrong way, so we need someone with more experience…

I happen to know there is an informative video on youtube re: proper guinea pig toenail clipping procedures. Don’t have the site, but I’m sure you could find it by searching.

(No, we don’t have a guinea pig.)



Apparently a lot of men think they look like Tom Brady.

See the resemblance?



Just sayin’.
