You're hilarious.

I throw things out when Missus Z isn't looking, just to see if she notices.

Almost never.

Larry Jones

I gotta clean the garage. People are gonna see that shit when I'm dead.

LOL! I have stuff that I should have thrown away long ago.

But I used to have many Spy magazines. I wonder if I threw those away...I will regret that, if true.

ZRM, *That* is what we ended up doing when it came down to the wire. I told The Skimmer, "Just don't tell me, don't show me -- do what you think you should do."

Larry, What all do you have out in the garage, hmmmm?

thunder, I know. I have *many* regrets about some of the things I decided to toss. :( Hope you find your magazines! (If not, I'll give you a couple of mine.)

I AM NOT KEEPING THIS JAR OF EYEBALLS ANY LONGER!!!!

blue girl

I can see why you'd like to get rid of that jar.

Jennifer

I'm a saver, too, BG, and can relate to all of your reasons, worries, woes... :) I try to be more ruthless, but on some days it's challenging. I am happy though that my one dog saved me from saving EL's umbilical cord. :) Snarf!!!

blue girl

Ha! Although I'll bet you were freaked out when it happened!

We got *ruthless* a few weeks before the move. And now I have so many regrets! I accumulated things over the years *for a reason.* Not just for the fun of it. AND NOW I NEED THEM. :)

For example, my decorative iron fence-like pieces that I bought at a flea market years ago. Just left those behind. Who cares?! I thought in the dead of winter as we were packing up the moving van?

Well, I care now! I have awesome Morning Glories that would grow so beautifully on those iron pieces!! They would be perfect for this little garden I have now.

*Sigh*

All of a sudden, Eddie Money popped into my head:

I wanna go back (go back)
And do it all over
But I can't go back
I know

*Sigh Squared*

My mother once told me, "Genius, watch out. You'll meet a lovely woman, you'll get a nice place together, and then she'll fill it up with all this stuff, the only purpose of which is to fill space. Then she will complain about having to move all the stuff every time. This is always the fault of the woman in the relationship. I did it, your sister-in-law is doing it, and I'm sure that any woman you meet, and you don't have to meet her right now but that would be nice, she will do it, too. And you'll just have to put up with it, or be better at losing stuff than your father."

And you know my mother was right.

zombie rotten mcdonald

I am going to find a way to lose our dog.

blue girl

Chuckles, your mother would totally understand why I couldn't THROW AWAY MY BELOVED GRANDMOTHER'S HAND-SEWN LINENS. Ask her. And then please report back.

Don't throw your dog away, ZRM! (Only Republicans would do such a thing.)

Learn about how my friend's one day with a Buddhist monk changed his life, helped him become a CEO and redefined his idea of success:

The Buddhist CEO probably just rents a warehouse for all his extra stuff. It's a 1% thang...

blue girl

Would a Buddhist CEO rent a warehouse? I'm thinking he'd rent a much cooler thing. :)

I saw a new post.

I SAW IT!

zombie rotten mcdonald

I did too. Thunder's not gone crazy.

THIS time.

blue girl

You two are not crazy. (How funny of me to write those words!)

I couldn't get the YouTuber embedded correctly. Stupid html!!!

And ZRM, you were mentioned in the post. Just imagine, you would have been famous. Damn that html.

blue girl

BREAKING NEWS:

1) ZRM will be happy to know my computer is broken again. I may have to start Kindling.

2) I have a new favorite song. It's from 2012.

blue girl

Here's my new favorite song:

zombie rotten mcdonald

so thunder IS crazy?

blue girl

Well, some of his deck *is* inside the house.

blue girl

Thanks, thunder! Let me see if it works.

zombie rotten mcdonald

DON'T LET HIM TALK YOU INTO POURING WINE INTO THE COMPUTER!!!

ifthethunderdontgetya™³²®©

That's what I do to make my youtubers work.

Wot's the problem, zrm?

zombie rotten mcdonald

Still don't see a new post making me a star.

Looks like the wine didn't work. Try tequila; that usually works for me. As you can tell if you read my posts.

blue girl

Tequila would make me an angry blogger.

blue girl

I gotta take Anne Lamott's advice on writing: Butt in chair.

zombie rotten mcdonald

Tequila would make me an angry blogger.

yeah. That's usually what I'm going for.

ifthethunderdontgetya™³²®©

You are a happy happy zombie blogger, zrm.

I tend to be a saver to ..up to a point. Eventually, I get pissed off and throw it all out.

I had a bunch of old fabric and linens that belonged to my Nonna. (my great-grandmother Maria). I didn't know what the heck to do with them as having 4 kiddos doesn't really let you get too creative with decorating with delicate fabrics.

A friend was over one day and I had them all out. She admired them so I told her (though it broke my heart), that she could have whatever she wanted out of it. She took a bunch of things and about a week later, showed back up with a bag/purse made out of it all. It's fab and I use it all of the time.

((Hugs))

That's wonderful, Laura! What a creative and thoughtful friend.

And now you've given me a good comeback to The Skimmer when he bugs me about my stuff: "You could make me something out of it, geez!" :)

I think there was a sunset last night....

blue girl

There was?! Oh no!
