FAD Friday


One of the best newspaper headlines ever written appeared in the sports section of the Seattle Times in 1990:


when the University of Washington women's basketball team beat the University of Oregon.

Okay, gals. Let's persevere offensively and survive defensively! Take it down the court and sink a three-pointer, despite the personal fouls.

What's got your duck this week?

Yesterday's street closures in Westwood/West LA!!! Everything southbound was closed at Santa Monica, so we wound up circling in gridlock for an hour before they opened up the roads.

Yeah, Pseu, I'm with you. I love the guy, but maybe they should issue him a jet-pack to get around?

Our house has been on the market for just one week, and we've had 2 offers already... but they are low. We priced the house to SELL, not to have folks come in with numbers lower than our remaining mortgage. Grrrrr....

Also, as a former Husky, I'd like to strangle the person who wrote that headline. Husky Women?!? Why not just call us fat Amazons? (I might be in a foul mood.)

There's a couple of birds that have put up a nest right outside the basement door, here. (It's attached to the screen porch support beams.)

I've been trying to get their picture, but they're too darned shy (so definitely not Barn Swallows).

That's my personal fowl for this Friday ;)

Fuckaduck I'm tired. I've been doing this whole "eat clean" lifestyle for the past 4 weeks. I'm down 8 lbs (yay!) but I fell off my routine over the past week and now I just feel tired and all I want to eat is chocolate! And that Husky Women headline??? Just wrong! but slightly funny... Happy FAD Friday friends!!

Now I have COPD. So fuck smoking.
Going to eat the ears off every fucking chocolate rabbit.

What a week - Actually what a few couple of weeks.

Fuck having to be in school and work full-time while my sister does jack fucking shit. I tried to be loving and caring thinking that maybe she would change but I finally realized that she isn't going to change and that is that. So I'm going to do the best that I can do for my niece and nephew and fucking stop worrying about her I guess.

For now I have about 3 weeks to worry about fucking finals and pray that I can finish out the semester strong to avoid being on academic probation thanks to two semesters of being plagued by surgeries and illness.
