Friday Show and Tell and some other stuff.

So Blackbird wants to see our least favorite piece of furniture? Well, okay. But it's really ugly. So beware:

Yes, it's the very desk at which I write most of my blog posts. Don't you like how you can see Blackbird's page open on my laptop? Nice artistic touch, don't ya think? Anyway, the story with this fugly piece of "furniture" is that I had a desk that was even crappier than this one (if you can imagine) that was a hand-me-down from my aunt. When I got my d-i-v-o-r-c-e and moved into my divorcee townhome, my mom decided to surprise me by buying and then putting together this desk for me.

Um...thanks?

First of all, yes, I hated the hand-me-down desk and had mentioned that I wanted something different to her. But no, I didn't expect her to go get me something. Especially something that I wouldn't have picked out in a million years. I hate how big and clunky it is, and with my new set up in this house, the fact that you're FORCED to sit on the left side of the desk is problematic. So, as soon as I can find one that I like to replace it, this sucker's going into the storage room with "garage sale" written all over it.

In other news, I have to show you my new favorite t-shirt:


It's from the sick minds at Homestarrunner.com, and no, it doesn't make a lick of sense. Which is precisely why I like it. (Is it just me, or does my rack look ENORMOUS in this photo. Geez, Karla May! Put those things away!!)

Finally, I read this quote today on the Vladivostok News site I check periodically:

"Currently there are more than 12,000 neglected children and orphans in the Primorsky region, Primorye Television reported. Every fourth of them lives in children homes, orphanages or boarding schools, which receive inappropriate financing."

The Primorsky region is where The Geej came from. I cannot begin to tell you how much reading this sentence rips my guts out. 12,000? In one region? My God...

I don't believe those fun pillows are yours. Which is why you cut the head out of the picture. Quit trying to pick up internet boyfriends, you minx.

Dude, those are TOTALLY my milk cans. I can't believe it either. The reason I cut off my head is b/c that shot included one helluva double chin. Not so hot.

hmmm, that is an awful piece of furniture...you just might win the prize.

Thank God you and the Geej found each other.

And those are some serious tatas, friend.

Karla said...

nice rack...baby. I need a milkshake now.

ironic that they are complaining about all the kids neglected and yet they limit adoptions. Hmm..

Me thinks the shirt is too small. : -)
Although they were a topic of conversation at my wedding, some time back....
