Darlings, I know I've been neglecting you, and I am deeply apologetic. It's been a weird year for me, with dramatic ups and downs, and I haven't always been up for my customary blend of cat and child anecdotes sprinkled with TMI and swear words. I do have stories, plenty of them, but I've not been writing them.
For the patient readers, who come back even when yer old DH is not entertaining, I'd like to offer amends. Pick a topic and I'll write it at your command. Serving suggestions:
-my ex-cat, Bob Marley got lost this fall, and everyone blamed me, even though he's had a new owner now for half his friggin' lifespan;
- I went out carousing with hundreds of people dressed as Santa and captured a pair of strikingly handsome European academics;
- the head of Lola's school strongly suggested I stop blogging;
- Iris uber Alles is now an officially gifted child and the impact this has on the rest of us;
-you tell me.
xxoo, yer neglectful old DH
Since I blog and it's a difficult walk this private versus public dance we do, I'd like to hear about the head of the school suggesting that you stop blogging.
I'd kind of like to hear about Santa and europeans, but I more want to hear about the head of the school and blogging...
The blogging story seems promising, esp b/c the head of the school will probably read it as well as your faithful customers. I would love to read your pre-holiday book reviews.
(And, as I am on a roll here, recipes !!!)
Oh let's face it, I'll enjoy reading anything you write.. blog away DH
Ooh - head of school telling you to stop blogging!
Please share the story when you the head of Lola's school were cavorting in the shower, which caused Al to fall out of a tree and fly off to Burning Man, where he was sold into aviav slavery as a foot massuese.
I guess keep it PG-13. Unless you add the sub-plot with the Aga. I don't think yo could do that part justice with anything less than an R. Can you still see the burn marks? Oh... I've revealed too much.
I really want to know the familial fallout for Iris' gifted status, and I'm always in the mood for subtly spanking officious heads, but I have to admit Santa and the europeans got my attention.
Oh Lord, I do owe you people pre-Christmas book reviews, don't I? I really suck.
Iris' gifted status
Head of school story!
I'm catty enough to ask for the tale of the uptight tail at school, but am just so delighted to know you're alive & kicking that I know I'll enjoy just about anything.
And truly, I think both the girls are simply brilliant.
My vote would definitely be for the anti-blogging head-of-school story, but not if it could conceivably get you into more hot water than alluding to it already possibly has.
Alternatively, the new school/impact on family and highlights of Iris' experiences there to date.
Heck, just get out of your funk and entertain us, Woman! You think just because it's your blog this is all about *you*??! ;-)
The head of school story. -- Anais
Put me down for the head of the school thing!
Anything would be great.. but when can we expect it?
I am looking forward to it!
ok darling, I think you've had long enough to collect responses and compose your choice post, now where is it?!?!
I'm on Day 2 of a horrible migraine. I'm eating ibuprofen, swigging ginger ale (for the attendant nausea), canceling social engagements, and just being miserable.
I'll try to write tom'w if my headache is manageable, darlings.
Wait, is this the head of the NEW school they're attending? I'd like to hear about Lola and her social adjustment...and Bob Marley. And the school thing, unless I know it already.
I want to hear everything. But PLEASE, in a more readable format? The new background with white type on top of a moving picture makes your blog almost impossible to read. I would hate to have to give you up.
I am greedy, therefore I request all of the above options, but most especially the suggestion that you stop blogging.
i want to hear about you tracking down and torturing commenters.
The head of Lola's school suggesting you stop blogging! Woah! That sounds interesting!
Please post something soon! I miss reading your stories. =)
More Creative, I promise you I will change it. I always want feedback like that.
Everyone, it will be the Head of School strongly suggesting to me that I stop blogging. I'm coming off this epic 9 day migraine, thanks to a gutsy dr. who gave me an 8 med cocktail (some OTC, most prescription).
I'll try to get it done for yer Christmas present, my dears.
Thank goodness. I was afraid the head-of-school had succeeded.
