Shoulda taken a left at


It’s ROAD TRIP time!! We’re going to Albuquerque for the weekend to see some friends, one f whom is an old colleague/friend of my mum’s whom she hasn’t seen in 20 years. Catching up with old friends is pretty neat at any time, but having an excuse for a road trip out of it is even better.

As a result, posting will be sparse-to-nonexistent until sometime next week when we’re forced to come back here. If I had my druthers, I think I’d stay up there where it’s cooler at night, they have mountains, and they know what snow looks like (without necessarily having to shovel 6 feet of it away every week).

The balloon thingy you see below is actually taking place this week, maybe we’ll be able to catch the tail end of it.

(See what I did there? Bugs bunny reference? Tail? — Jeez, tough crowd.)

Oh, and it’s my birthday. It’s not a big-Oh so I’m not as unexpectedly freaked out as I was last year, and I’m far too worn out from the maternal visit to really care, but it’s here and it’s today and I STILL don’t see a pony in my back garden. WTF?!
