Box. In the mail. From the oil company. Who, by the way, let our tank get empty a couple weeks back. On, fortunately, a day when it was 50 degrees out.

"Is this the booby prize for running out of oil?" I asked.

That's about the size of it, yeah. Kind of disturbing they have a procedure for apologizing for this kind of thing. Oh, and they're charging us $600 for the tank full of oil.

In the box? An assortment of about a dozen cookies, each individually wrapped.

Also in the gift category, from iGrrrl on the occasion of the end of $evil_project, a massage, a pastry blender, a copy of Ahab's Wife, and who knows what-all else.

We bought each other an iMac, also on the occasion of the end of $evil_project. We've named her Fray, after a vampire slayer comic heroine. And yeah, she kicks ass.

Brought home a bottle of wine the other day, Ecco Domani Pinot Grigio. It's a nice wine. Wondering where the other wine stopper is, after dinner, only to discover it's in the neck of another bottle of Ecco Domani Pinot Grigio, in the fridge. Um, huh. Too much of a good thing?

So the music fun challenge is moving. I like the idea of voting on the theme. There'll probably be a Writing Fun Challenge as well, possibly overlapping the MFC, time-wise. Or, hey, you can podcast your story.

Another late night for poor toxicfur, who has a (much smaller, thank you very much) deadline next Wednesday. This one's only 30 pages as opposed to 800-ish, but it still needs to be written before yesterday, kthxbye. I almost feel guilty taking weekends off myself.

A pony. by toxicfur (4.00 / 3) #1 Fri Apr 07, 2006 at 05:13:28 PM EST
You left out the pony! Granted, the pony is very pink and sparkley, but it has an appropriately rainbow-colored mane. I think his name will be Bruce.

Gringo! by vorheesleatherface (2.00 / 0) #2 Sat Apr 08, 2006 at 01:27:02 AM EST
Every time The Little Woman buys a bottle of Pinot Grigio I find myself proclaiming "peeno gringo!" like Beavis. Rolling the R and holding the O. "Grrringoooo!"

Good stuff.

Lately I've taken a liking to cabernet-shiraz. I like Reds.

Speaking for Rogerborg, I think it's high time you participate in the site-wide DairyDiary Project.

I'm probably showing my age... by ana (4.00 / 2) #4 Sat Apr 08, 2006 at 10:05:54 AM EST
but what pops to mind here is a silly lipstick-on-hand puppet named Popo Gigio who used to grace Ed Sullivan's show.
