Happy Fireplacing Holidays; Also: Prière de vous présenter!

In a spirit of great holiday something-or-other , we are off to the Scientist-In-Laws. Alas, Army Green's Chinese girlfriend will not be joining us. I am tragically disappointed; I shall console myself by leaving Mr. S behind and visiting my favorite aunt.

Actually, they used to be much worse. You should hear what they said before we were married.

I leave you with three four! things:
  • Antacids. Lots of antacids. Pass the bottle!
  • An invitation: O lurkers, o guests as yet unknown to me, leave me a word, do. I desire to know of your charming selves. I promise to return the good words upon my return. (I know you are there. The sitemeter, it does not lie.)
  • My sister is pregnant!!

Warning Label

Best of cheer and new beginnings to everyone. See you next year!

    Happy Holidays! Good luck at the inlaws. See you next year, if not before.

    Ah, the New Year! Always something to look forward to at this time of year... we'll all get a well-earned break from the madness of family fun. At least you have a visit with your aunt to break things up with the inlaws, hopefully she'll have a calming effect (along with the antacids). Here's to making the best of things... cheers!

    OSHA's just plain nutty, huh?

  3. Oy. Can I just say oy?

    I feel your pain with the in-laws, good luck with that. Also sounds like you may want to join my new club, the sisters of pregnant brainwashed fluffheads club. It's great fun listing off all of the stupid things they say while they send you pictures of their oh so cute fetus. Good times.

  5. Thanks, y'all.

    The fluffhead promises to provide great enjoyment. Mom last night: 'I was thinking of going for a month.' Me: [Choking] 'You'll kill each other!' Mom: 'Yeah. Maybe not.'

  6. Hey, JF--MW here. Just a friendly post in response to your plea to guests to make themselves known. Now that I know of your blog, I hope to visit more often!

    And thank you, a thousand thank yous, for putting that safety diagram online. Truly, it is a marvel.
