the placeholder

Bumper and I have jumped ship and have decided to become full-fledged pirates.

We are hanging out by the ocean with my parents and deciding if the sailors life is really what we want.

I am on my Dad's desktop and having severe internet withdrawals. The Blogline-withdrawal shakes are enough to make me want to mainline a network cable.

Photos of my detox coming soon. We go shopping for parrots and ruffled shirts tomorrow.

Am I making any sense? No? Good, it wasn't meant to make sense.

I'm in my parent's basement looking at books I loved as a child while Bumper gets some sleep upstairs. Can you guess what one of my favorite book series was growing up?

For now go read my review of Girlology's latest offering: Hang-Ups, Hook-Ups, and Holding Out over at motherbumper's laboratory. It really is all you need to know about your body, sex, and dating (years after you needed to know it but if you have a little girl, it will help you prepare for puberty - cue sinister music now).

Y'arrrrrrrrr matey.

And fade to black.

Ha! Your experience with the internet-withdrawal is exactly what I experienced last week, when we were at the in-laws for a week. There phone (and therefore internet) went out for two days. Who's phone actually goes out these days?!?

Hang in there!

Internet-withdrawal is brutal. Worse than walking the plank, possibly.

When KayTar and I play pirates, we say "Arrrg, (KayTar's real name that rhymes with Matey)!" She's a hoot when she's being a pirate.

Favorite series? I'd place bets on one of the following: Little House, Anne of Green Gables, Betsy-Tacy, or Boxcar Children.

Good luck with the Blog DT's...looking forward to the pics....

"Suffering seagulls!" "Scupper me skull-and-crossbones!"

Hope you are having a wonderfully relaxing time. Soak up that fresh, salty air.

Pippi! She had that South Seas adventure... Or perhaps Arthur Ransome? Yo ho ho, and a bottle of rum indeed.

Internet withdrawal = bad.

Vacation at the ocean with pirates and parents = Yar.
