Valkyrie: Who was that on the phone? Hubster: Eh, I just found out I have to wear a coat and tie at the meeting in Wichita. Valkyrie: Seriously? Does your suit even still fit? Hubster: I guess I better find out. (he goes off to find his suit… View Post
Flower power, just watch out for bees
So it’s springtime in central Arizona, which means that the temperature dances around the 90-degree mark but it still gets nice and cool at night. This will change soon when it will get about 120 degrees or so by around 3pm, and the temps barely dip… View Post
Sometimes it's better to not be so much of a Good...
You have to wonder what kind of day you’re going to have when the first thing you see when you drive into the parking lot at work is a random dude vomiting. This raised a few questions for me: “What the Hell?” The answer: yes, that’s a dude, and he’s… View Post
Men in Kilts, Loud Bagpipes, Tossing Heavy...
Dear Friends, So the good Hubster and I hied ourselves to one our favorite yearly events, the Phoenix Highland Games and Clan Gathering. We’ve been going to this one almost yearly since we’ve met 11 years ago; in fact, the 2002 one was actually one of… View Post
Conversation with Hubster: Can You Feel the Love...
Hubster: I got you something today. Valkyrie: You did? Was it something I was supposed to notice? Because sometimes I don’t notice things, you know. Hubster: I know. I got you some ice cream. I was also going to get you flowers, but they were all… View Post
TH 13: Things I Learned from "Beneath Loch Ness"...
Scottish accent, Irish accent, it’s all the same. Even though there are canals that link Loch Ness to the sea, there’s also an underwater “flute” that does the same thing. Scotsmen love their dynamite fishing. The idea that Loch Ness is too murky to see… View Post
Cinephilia is too a real thing! I read it on...
So here’s the thing. Long time readers of this blog, my old blog, my Facebook page, etc., will know that I have a love of movies. Scratch that, badmovies. Bad movies like early silent German surrealism, 1930′s social exploitation about syphilis and… View Post
Just cover me up with a sheet cake
So my birthday is coming up, and I’d like to expound on something that is close to my heart. Frosting. When I speak of frosting, I mean, of course, buttercream frosting. The thick, viscous, stuff that is the consistency of paste we all ate as kids: Oh,… View Post
The "Prometheus" teaser plays endlessly ...
Hubster: The problem I have with prequels is that the spaceships are always better the further they go back in time. Valkyrie: I know, dear.
On having to share an office ...
Valkyrie: So I’m setting up my new desk area and J vetos my happy Buddha figurine. Hubster: Really? Why? Valkyrie: He said it looked creepy. And that it was evil. And anti-Christian. Hubster: Hmm. Try a Vishnu figurine and see what he says then.
Communication is key.
Valkyrie: I love you, honey. Hubster: Uh-huh. *belch* I have to poop.
Giving Easter candy ...
Valkyrie: Happy Easter! Hubster: Yay! Candy! A chocolate orange and a bunny! Valkyrie: Oh, wait … that’s a marshmallow bunny. You don’t like marshmallow much. Hubster: No, I don’t. Valkyrie: I keep forgetting that. Hubster: Yeah. Valkyrie: Sorry. (pause) Can I have it then?
At the local pub n' grub ....
Hubster: They have an ale called Bitter Leprechaun. Valkyrie: Well, of course leprechauns are bitter. People are always looking for them, trying to steal their gold … Hubster: … forcing them to make marshmallows for cereal … Valkyrie: Precisely.
TMI coming home from the DQ . . .
Valkyrie: Whoops! I’m sorry. Hubster: What? Valkyrie: I pooted in your car. Hubster: That’s okay. I did too.
Regarding Super Tuesday:
Valkyrie: So apparently it will “take an Act of God” for Mitt Romney to not get the Republican nomination. Hubster: An Act of God? What about an Act of a Prostitute? Valkyrie: I don’t think his “Magic Underwear” will protect him against that, no.
Reading the morning paper ...
Valkyrie: So this wag wrote a letter to the editor saying that if Obama wins the next election, it will be all Rush Limbaugh’s fault. (sigh) I love modern American logic. Hubster: If Obama wins, maybe Rush will kill himself. Valkyrie: That’s a bit harsh. (pause) But hope springs eternal.
tumblrbot asked: WHERE WOULD YOU MOST LIKE TO VISIT ON YOUR PLANET?
while watching HGTV ...
Hubster: Why do these people need 4 bedrooms? Valkyrie: One for the parents, one each for the kids, and a guest bedroom. Hubster: Who needs a guest bedroom? That just encourages people to come visit. Valkyrie: Then why do we have a guest bedroom? Hubster: That’s the cats’ room.
Very very TMI ...
Valkyrie: Woof! I’m pooty at one end and wheezy at the other! Hubster: Please don’t mix those ends up.
In the car ...
Valkyrie: Those Kia Souls look a lot like an overgrown Mini-Cooper. Hubster: I thought that was a Mini-Cooper. Valkyrie: They do have those larger Mini-Coopers, the ones that are like a little SUV. A Maxi-Cooper. Hubster: Maxi-Cooper? Valkyrie: Yeah. You can’t call it a Mini-Cooper because it’s bigger than a Mini. It’s a Maxi-Cooper. (pause) With wings. Hubster: With...
