The Angry Mesclun Lettuce That Ate Houston

Hello long lost blog! How I've missed you! I'm sorry to abandoned you and facebook and the bloggers and the rest of internetdom that isn't directly related to professional journals or the university's online portal.

I've taken a lot of pictures for you, and I promise to show them to you...sometime. Look! I have a couple today!

It never occurred to me that lettuce would outgrow those cute balls you see them in at the grocery store. But The-Guy-Who-Knows-A-Song-About-A-Chicken described this lettuce as "angry":Here's my good for nothing cat, licking an ipod cord as if it were a Popsicle. He LOVES those things!Here's a picture of a big giant truck with a teeny tiny blue sticker on the back advertising the wind energy they use at home.
Which is a HUGE relief, because the first thing I think when I see a huge, giant squeaky clean empty vehicle with one person inside is, "I wonder if they practice environmentalism at home?"

I apologize for lacking the time to load my ancient version of photoshop onto this computer so I could blur the license plate. Feel free, I suppose, to hunt the driver down in order to offer congratulations for being so conscientious.

As for lack of time, if it's any consolation, my card making pastime has really taken a hit too. I promise to be more diligent in June (when I'm only taking classes full time and planning a wedding, instead of doing both those things AND working full time). I promise to be more diligent in June! I'll try to be more diligent in June, oh hobby-o-mine.

That lettuce looks deviant.

Your cat looks like a moron...LOL. But he's cute.

You're the only person I know who has lettuce that bites back.

Tracy - I'm trying, I'm trying! In fact, priorities are one of those things I've been working on most of my adult life...

Marlene - Yeah, I've been hoping that myself!

Bruce - Yeah. Or doing more than any three people should. Something. :-)

Thanks Megan & Collette!

Slyde - Yeah, I'm hoping not. But he seems pretty bound & determined.

Christine - It's like the opposite of vegetarianism or something. :-)

Sunshine and Shadows said...

I'm glad you pulled up that lettuce - that is a mean looking plant.

Loraine said...

That's... lettuce? Odd.
Hope your kitty doesn't fry himself!

SJ said...

Good to see the cat is "with it". An iCat?

DJ Kirkby said...

June huh? We'll see....

A Free Man said...

At least he didn't have 'truck nuts' as well. That would just be tasteless.

Jill/Twipply Skwood said...

Sunshine - Ain't it though?

Loraine - Me too!

SJ - Funny! I think he gets "Hip Cat Magazine". :-)

DJ - Yeah, June. Here's hoping! After all, all I have to do in June is classes and get married. I should have plenty of time for blogging, right? :-)

A Free Man - Yeah! Now I see the bright side! :-)

Beth said...

honestly, I did expect to get a home made wedding invite...

Jill/Twipply Skwood said...

Beth - Yeah, I didn't actually expect that either. It just happened that way. See you tomorrow!

That obviously some sort of weird Texan lettuce because I have NEVER seen a lettuce like THAT. How close are you to those nuclear test sites of the 50s?
