    Mr x has northern exposure on. Very intriguing. Set in cicely Alaska. I rather like that homespun town. His din tonight was salmon, brown rice, and asparagus.

    Decafe, dear? Yup. Tried McCafe caramel macchiato. Now ive tried this at the real macs. Enjoyed it. Reviews on Amazon were favorable for this k pod substitute. It's very similar to my beloved gevalia mocha. There's the k pod. Then an envelope of flavored milk froth.

    So i made it up having high hopes. She had high hopes... she had high hopes. She had high apple pie, in the sky hopes! They were dashed... dash it all. At first i thought it was ok. A definite caramel taste. But soon an odd after taste emerged. Like a weird chemical sugar, perhaps? But it's not a diet Joe. I'll have to check the box. At the end it was getting downright gross. I'll have to give it a D. And i have 8 more pods. Ill try to doctor it up somehow because I'm not in the habit of dumping food. I could just use the k pod. How about using just half or a third of the flavor pack? That's a plan. P.S. i don't think it was decafe.

    Moving on. I saw article heralding the arrival of the seasonal shamrock shake! My, the picture looks appetizing. That lime color with the whipped cream looks so good. It says it's their regular soft serve with mint flavoring and color. I want it. Ive never had one. But why does it have to come in March? This is not really cold shake weather.

    I've wandered onto the nilla Wonka playground of goodies. Purveyors of sweets for the sweetest. My old friend is calling me. Monsieur oreo. Hey, dazzy ole gal! Haven't seen you around in a month of Sunday's. Do you know i now come enrobed in fudge? Or wrapped around a marshmallow. You'd like that, wouldn't you? We remember you. You were a familiar visitor to our sugar encrusted shores. It rather wounded us when you stopped coming. We felt you had forsaken us. You know we now come in a thin variety? Look at us lying down. Why, we're practically invisible! None of that questionable icing. We weigh barely any calories. Just the nitty gritty. The bottom line. You like the bottom line. Picture us with your ever present decafe. It'll brighten your moment. It'll brighten your day. Remember us. O R E O. Oreo makes the very best... cookies!

    Im looking at jams on Amazon and they started showing cookies. I want that mother's macaroon cookie. Grr... crunchy, coconuty. The cookie beast is upon me!

    Having a tiziano bonini aroma decafe. Sounds Italian. I took Italian for one semester. And no, i haven't resumed my Spanish audio lessons. I jump from one thing to another. Jack of all trades, master of none. I rate the Joe B. Good diner Joe. Which means as a B i wouldn't reorder.

    Finished taxy! Took me 17 days working a bit each day. And the 540 booklet still hasn't landed at the library.

    I had to put the kibosh on my cleaning and reading. And soon ill start exercising outside. That's why i got the tetanus shot last year. Cause ill be fooling around with my equipment. Bro had brought me a new, used skateboard and i haven't even tried it. And yesterday i wore this xmas snoopy flannel pj. I had never worn it because it was a small. Now i can wear it.

    They're looking for monsieur ugly at that park to do dna. He bit or scratched the girl.

    Im lagging here. Having a Wolfgang pucks after dark en soiree decafe. Ooh, sounds like an illicit assignation to me. Sadly, i give it a B. Just doesn't spark. And i wouldn't consider reordering unless it's in the A category.

    It's getting warmer here. Think i need to start thinking of capris. Or my sheer leggings.

    Ive started another Victorian novel. 1909. Last one was 1910. I was glad the reformed rogue didn't get the girl. He was a player. It was his game. Then he got in a puzzle with an ingenue and when he couldn't have her, became besotted with her. Well, that wasn't true love. And doesn't he owe penance for his trail of broken hearts?

    I find the conventions fascinating. You basically couldn't talk to a prospective unless you were formally introduced. No chatting someone up on the street. They didn't even call you by your first name! Yet a man could ask for someone's hand in marriage with barely a date.

    So it's strange this current era. Being ol. Chatting hither n thither. That classmate of mine barking, are you HIGH, girlfriend. Just boom. In your face. Do you like this? The reason i blog on my page is because i don't necessarily want to be so seen. I write a lot. Im effusive. But i don't want to bore folks. You'll have to mosey on over here to read me.

    Got a lil taxy to do. Haven't finished but we're in the final stretch. But also have to deal with mr xs tracfone. It expires fri. I am cold pressed, like a fine wine, to get on the ball.

    Continued weirdness. I do a blog like this on my hs site. It has gotten a lot of views. Frankly, I've gotten the highest views ive seen. But that's because ive posted hundreds of my family photos and blogs. However, they don't message me. It's very rare.

    Then one day i received some cross directed em. Someone on the site was asking how to stop getting em notifications that someone has yet again written a blog. That would be me. She ended with a plaintive ? Well, i received this em, too. And was highly offended. It's not my purpose to annoy folks. She needs to change her settings. But since i was highly irked i went to her page and left a ? only. Like the one she had left for sites management.

    She left me a ? back! The silent war was on. I highly regretted doing such a rash thing as leaving the first ? This reminded me of that poster on moca who would Enrage folks by leaving a . I was bugged by this for days. Stopped blogging. Found her on fb and hated her.

    Eventually, this situation faded. Plus she has scant views. Im the Supreme Blogger. Go away, girlie. Get out of my mind.

    So today i get an em saying i have a private message. I go there. She has written me!!! This is what she wrote. Are you HIGH girlfriend... what exactly was this post supposed to be about? Im very confused. Or is this a comic routine?

    I said, what post are you referring? I have dozens. Im just rambling. No one writes anything here. Im just a blogger. Just ignore the girl behind the pink screen.

    I starting thinking was it that post where i left a ? Im thinking why is she writing me. That occurrence was some months ago. Im thinking i really need blog stress after monsieur x stress.

    So she writes again! Says OMG, you're hysterical. I don't know if you even remember me but it's about time someone hazed this site up! I definitely needed a laugh. Then she tells me private details of her life and ends with BTW, i love your humor.

    Now what, i have a new best friend?

    Monsieur x hit again. That dastardly cur. We had a Clash of the Titans. Opposing sides sparred. Perry Mason oversaw. There is no winner. There never is. Do opposites attract? They may, but they'll be some epic battles. There was a scene in Seinfeld where seiny thought he met his match. They had the same humor, liked the same foods. He marveled, she's just like me. Later, it soured. Jerry said, waitaminit, i hate me!

    It started with the microwave. It costs 5 bucks now to dispose. But the last pick up in Sept it was free. Mr x said because you wanted to keep it as a backup it cost us 5 bucks. He really went there. It was an iffy machine. It half worked. I didn't quite trust the new one. And i have hoarder roots. I dug back in records to see when we got new machine and it was some mos before Sept so yeah if we had dumped it no fee. I can't predict price increases. Everything goes up except the price of corn. He beats me down for 5 bucks when i am the Super Saver! It was a low blow.

    So i told him don't make me dinner tomorrow. It'll probably be 5 bucks. There you go. In fact, i shouldn't have din for a week. Really make me suffer. I didn't want to wring too much out of this line or he might decide to stop cooking. But frankly, i don't care. I do perfectly fine on pbj and slim fast.

    Folks can drive you mad. Bro is infuriatingly odd, but he's not offensive. He doesn't attack. We have similar personalities. But monsieur x... wolf. I've done serious psychological studies on that boy. I pretty much understand his motivations. It's the mother, of course.

    Oh, oh! I forgot the tiff before this. Last nite he said i was manipulative. I queried, how so, Joe? He said, like you say your eyes are bad so you don't have to drive. You just don't want to drive. He tipped my hand and i had to reveal ive had double vision for last couple years and purposely stopped driving. He said, you should've told me. Why? You can pick up that thread. Driving is your forte. One of his jobs was driving a truck. He has excellent eyes. He can see someone's eyeballs across the street. Why do i have to reveal personal idiosyncrasies? I don't intrude upon his.

    So, it's been a tense day in the hood. I am not pleased. I don't feel playful or jokey with him.

    Monsieur ugly hit again. Actually injured a kid on a trail in Cupertino. My neck of the woods. He was with adults, too. The cat has nerve. The park sounds familiar. I think they had a similar incident. And park was closed for awhile. Reopened. Cat tries to get another kid. Park closes. Rinse. Repeat.

    Im pooped. Had to take a nap, even. Did 3.5 hrs of desky. Later woke up and wrestled microwave out of The Lost Room. It was in its box. I shoved it to front door. We carried it to driveway. Then i had to bike. I debated canceling but it helps ch. Watched leverage where they were playing chess. I can't do it. Bro tried to teach me once. It's like tracking a can of worms wiggling on the floor. This piece goes forwards. This one goes sideways etc. I couldn't do it then and certainly couldn't do it now. I do admire players, tho. I also cannot learn stick shift driving. Mr x tried to teach me once. Too weirdly complicated. This gear is good up to this speed, then there's others. My dad had that fiat which was stick. You're constantly mucking about with the gears. When can you change radio channels or drink your pink strawberry milkshake is what i want to know.

    So i had a good productive day. Did you see friends? Take in a movie? Do you ever have any fun? What, you don't spend free time doing desky? I had opened gfs valentine's card. It was really beautiful. Red and gold with glitter. I told her i like glitter. It's so sparkly. I turned it over. You really went there? Yeah, don't you? That's where the price is. The card plus stamp to mail brought it slightly under 6 bucks. I think that's an outrageous price. You could buy a Carl's guacamole for 6 bucks. I actually had thought cards were on its way out. What with the net. You don't need to send a yearly card. You could be in touch daily if you wanted. So card prices reflect sluggish sales? Cards are a whole new topic that im too tired to get into. I put card on desk to admire.

    I brought the cake mix to kitchen. Mr x sure to see and comment. And lemon curd jar on counter. He wouldn't know what that is. It's the lemon filling in a lemon meringue pie. Don't get me started but you know ill comment on some pithy element of the pie. Alright, here it is. What is with the meringue part? It's egg whites whipped with sugar. It tastes like foam. It is gross. The lemon filling and crust is good, but they have to come up with something better than that foam. It's gross, spongey. It looks attractive. Ill give it that. Maybe it's the bow on a package. You're supposed to throw it away.

    Think ill look for the cake pan and recipe. Mr x will do dinner again. I was doing the credit card statement and he hit the store 13 times this month. He loves tjs.

    Wonderfully sunny, bright day. Wild west still on. I was googling dr loveless character. Very interesting life. I find folks backstory fascinating. Where are you from? Your folks stories. The jobs you had. One odd job Michael Dunn, loveless, had was rat catcher assistant. That is certainly odd! May not be glorious at the time, but picture it later in your bio.

    Amazon came. They wrapped the lemon curd in bubble wrap. The leggings were stuffed onto a hangar. For hanging on a rod in a store. It kind of crinkled the material. Leggings are very thin.

    Already thinking of how ill do the cake. Im surprised mr x didn't notice the mix box. It's sitting on treadmill. Anyway, i have to do a layer cake to apply the filling. Nothing more attractive than a layer filled cake slice It's a thing of beauty. A wonder to behold.

    Yesterday mr x got into the chocolate Graham crackers. There are 3 sleeves. I had 2 pieces. Told him keep it out so i can put remainder in container. I hate soft cookies. Well, that was moot. Mr x demolished the sleeve. He said it went excellent with his tea. Tea?! How about a manly jolt of black Joe with no creamer? Drunk out of a dirty glass. He's drinking tea? Tea is a second banana for me. I vastly prefer Joe. If i have tea, I'm feeling poorly.

    Well i gots to go. Make pink hay while the sun shines. It'll be desky day cause i have to mess with the microwave being trashed tomorrow. Wonder if mr x has forgotten. I don't want him to carry it by himself. He has a tricky dick back because of a weight lifting injury.

    Im beat. Just finished spin. Almost got caught. Im watching my favorite leverage show. The screen door starts rattling. Someone's opening it. Is it mr x? But i thought he was in the back room. The guy rings. Im not expecting a package. Rats. Im obliged to go see. I look out and see a dude a couple houses down. I wait till he goes then open the door. He left a dumb flyer. Mr x had made a no soliciting sign. It was ignored. I close door. Hear someone saying hello? There was another guy right next door! I get back on my bike. He rings again. Mr x wanders out. I shoo him back. Ill discuss it later. I had to reset my timer. I will not engage unsolicited folks anymore. This was some paver/driveway company.

    Anyway i wrote up my 540 2ez. Think ill go with that. Got a lil more summarizing to do. Bro was surprised i finished. He's doing turbo tax. Isn't that kind of dangerous doing taxy out on the tarmac?

    I have to take lovely weekend Sunday off to get that microwave ready to dispose. So ill do desky and haul it from The Lost Room. It's in its huge box. Ill have mr x store it in garage attic. Good moving box. It'll give me wanted space in the room.

    The wild wild west marathon on. Robert conrad was so handsome. Could be mean and arrogant tho. He did couple spots on columbo. I was reading about Ross Martin. Artemus Gordon. His vaulted side kick. Second banana. Wonderful disguises, accents. Never got the girl.

    He spoke many languages. Probably why he could do all the accents. He was a lawyer! But didn't practice. He wanted to be an actor. Well, he will certainly be remembered much longer as an actor rather than a lawyer.

    So, going to pick a decafe and finish up taxy before the light goes. Listening to bee gees now.

    I was texting to my pal in Cambodia. I said why don't you just marry your gf then you can stay there. He told me the most bizarre rule. A foreign national over 50 is not permitted to marry a Cambodian national of Any age! Wow.

amazing as it sounds, i passed the dmv vision test. i was quite apprehensive in days leading up to it. every nite religiously doing the eye exercises. straining, straining to see, imagine, the dinky little letters. when it came time to test, i didnt even falter! i guess i could see the shapes good enough to recognize. mr x came with me. we had a 2.5 hour wait. he started grumbling part way thru the wait.

other day we were at macs. tried their new ice mocha. yum!

then yesterday hung out with bro for 5.5 hrs. he had these dumb rebate cards to redeem and he didnt need anything. so we went to walgreens, 2 cvs, and a tjs. i caught up on my shopping. we hit a macs and i tried the caramel macchiato. even better than the mocha. we got along very well. we had been estranged a long time. but now i suppose i will eventually move closer to him. he lives in san jose. not a place id like to be. maybe i can move nearby on the coast. would like some fog weather.

so i passed my big hurdle. can relax now and get back to normal. have to hire a drywall guy.

just finished a great read. about uber rich ladies and the scam perpetrated against them. a good frothy read. hey, its fall i believe! got bottle of pumpkin spice latte by starbucks. so curious to taste it.

welcome to fall! time to bring out the sweaters.

finally got back here. we had a plumbing event. on labor day mr x noticed water running off front lawn. a water main had broke. a small 2" gush was gushing out. mr x called water company who turned off water. then i called our go to plumber. a solution was to replace pipe to house. however id been wanting to replace the pipes one day. we had no hot water at bathroom sink and cold faucet was dribbling out. i knew it was a matter of time. then. we didnt have hot or warm water in washer. only cold. thats why my wash would take hours. so i decided to kill all birds with one stone. i replaced all pipes with copper. it took a total of 5 days. we had no water for 3 days. first day we used wipey dypes. 2nd day mr x warmed water jugs in sun and we bathed with a gallon of water. i helped mr x wash his hair on back lawn. i viewed the experience like camping. its doable, but im not keen on it. 3 guys were here. all spoke spanish. so i decided to learn spanish on phone app. itd be nice to be able to converse with them.

im doing eye exercises. plan on taking vision test next week. its better not doing close work, which ive done my whole life. reading way too much. better to look at scenery. i think ill continue the eye exercises.

we had really hot temps, then other day first rain of the year! it began with a thousand lightening strikes. scary, and weird for this area. it started brush fire couple towns over. also monsciour ugly was caught on film sliding his grotesquely ugly body under a residents fence. # the outrage

id been watching lovely old films, then the plumbing debacle. i have to bring in a drywall guy to patch up the holes the plumber left. already found my guy thru yelp.

back to school time, but kids already back. when did that start? and no telethon with jerry lewis. he really wanted to hit 100.

its been super hot here. sf broke record. something like 106. we were 107. i was taking 3 showers a day. would sit outside at nite for air, started watching my dvd player. watched, british intelligence, with boris karloff. such an intimidating man. it was a ww1 flick in blk/wh. got bit by mosquitos. its the gift that keeps on giving. next nite sprayed off on.

got couple more weeks for eye exercises then have to take dmv vision test. strangely enough, the pinhole glasses im using seem to help. before i couldnt see without glasses without closing an eye. now im able to read my phone without glasses. of course, i return to glasses asap.

the smoke from oregon and calif fires drifted down here. could smell it slightly. today its a strange totally overcast day, but warm.

your friendly, pink weather girl.

hi izzy! i know what you mean. its fun to read new blogs. kind of like toothpaste. if nothing to read, ill read the tube. tube tops. i thought those were the dumbest things. then my wing went out once and i couldnt finagle a bra. so had to get the tubes. so easy to put on. i have them in colors, of course. fuchsia, lime, orange.

im writing on lappy, my laptop. too onerous to text on my phone.

its been a long, hot summer. i look forward to fall temps when i can don my beloved denim jackets.

izzy, that was interesting telling of what a nuclear stress test is. what is the nuclear part? the dye? it sounds so high tech. nuclear. do you glow now:)

i need to clean my fans. some arent openable. need some kind of thin bristle brush.

a few cities over madame ugly and her spawn were spotted. search partys are out since they came down where schools are. i noticed their looks didnt improve over the summer.

did i mention mr x found a dead rat on back lawn. thankfully he disposed of it. he said it was 17" with tail. # ick

see you in september!

my newest project is trying to buy glasses ol.

last nights movie was a doris day musical. she can really dance. and tap. that is an odd dance move. the guy was doing it on a staircase. itd be kind of neat to suddenly break into a tap dance.

then i started a cary grant and rosallnd russell movie.

i made up 5 packs of indonesian ramen. made oodles of noodles. heard ramen is hot commodity in prisons. ramen wth an egg on top. # breakfast is served

i should try on my cargo shorts again. itll probably be another year till i can wear them. i sure love the pockets. i used to be a tomboy back in my tomcat days. but i grew out of it. i get more favorable responses when i dress ladylike.

We had to replace the water pipe to our house, years ago, when we had our own house. BF and a friend did the work.
A root from a tree had punctured the pipe...so the tree was felled.
The lawn never recovered from the line that had to be dug into it to access the pipe.

I bet its nice to have working water again!

OMG, the smoke from the fires drifted into Colorado so thick that it allowed one to look directly at the sun without seeing spots when looking away!
We could barely make out the shapes of the mountains through the heavy smoke.
When the sun had set and the moon had risen, the moon looked much like the sun had looked...only the sky was dark!
There was also a fire near Steamboat Springs, Colorado that grew from 2 acres to 419 acres in just a few hours...that also contributed to our smoky air.
The elderly and people with health issues are being advised to stay indoors with the doors and windows closed.
Its really kinda scary to see that much smoke in the air!

I'm glad to hear that the eye exercises and the pinhole glasses are working for you! ...I should try something like that since my aging eyes are failing fast...but I am lazy lately...maybe at another time.
