Now, a headline from today's local newspaper:
'Renaissance fair with wings' to bring out fairies and elves
"Fairies, elves and other creatures will gather this weekend in the hamlet of (local town) to celebrate nature's wonders and the magic of imagination. The second annual New York Faerie Festival starts today and will run through Sunday on private land on (insert location here). The family-oriented event offers the opportunity to (blah, blah, blah)."
"It's like a Renaissance fair with wings," said (so-and-so). Everyone at the festival will be dressed up in their best fairy costumes, organizers said."
errrrrrmm ...... "best fairy costumes"? "Faerie Festival"? Renaissance fair with wings?
Put me in a car and point me in the opposite direction, is all I'm sayin'. Sweet Jeezus.
Oh! Oh! And apropos of absolutely nothing, is anyone besides me watching "Raising Sextuplets" on the WE network? The mom seems nice enough, if somewhat vacuous, but the dad .... oh boy. What a jerk! He's just such a .... jerk. The mom does ALL THE WORK taking care of ALL SIX KIDS, PLUS she works a regular job, and if he, like, changes a SINGLE DIAPER he struts around like he deserves a f*cking medal. I just want to punch him.
But then last night, I was watching the episode where the mom and dad go out to dinner, sans kids, and she actually salted his dessert to get him to stop eating it because she wants him to lose weight.
She salted his dessert. I'm not even kidding here. WHO DOES THAT?!
So they're both total jerks. I guess I can stop watching the show now, except I'm still watching Little People, long after Matt Roloff revealed himself to be, basically, the biggest (um .... littlest?) jerk in the Pacific Northwest.
I watch too much tv.
Oh! And in other news, a local garden center is getting ready to close for the season (yes, I DO live in the Frozen North, dammit), and they are having a fifty-percent-off sale.
Oh peeps, how can I resist that? I can't.
Time to dig some more holes ....
