I need a thing, a theme, something. Sage has her Word Wise Wednesday, Andrea has her Monday Mission, Mad has her Super Thinky blog fests, BubandPie has her book reviews.

I have:


boxes in the living room,


stacks and piles in the bedroom,


I don't want to talk about it.

No, I need a schtik, a thing. I like music. I LOVE music. I've been toying with the idea of doing music review blog posts. It would make it easier for me, I think, to have a set format - when I get back from a trip and have difficulty getting my brain to work.
I'll call it "The Jet Lag Lounge and Coffee Bar."

So, sit back, relax, and enjoy the... uh, music.

(...coming soon.)

hmmmm, looks like my house. Maybe I need a schtick too.

So how's Tater?

theflyingmum said...

As far as I can tell, Tater is doing great - hiding, in the depths of dirt. Still haven't found Tater #1.
The boxes have GOT to go, and will, as soon as we finish the interior of the pump house from whence they came. I don't even bother with the stacks of reading material etc. in the bedroom as they regenerate with astounding speed. The sewing table... all mine. *sigh*

I think this is a GREAT idea. I'm looking forward to it. All the better because it allows you to procrastinate in finding something to *do* with those boxes.

Nice to have the Tater update.

Oooh, can your first column be about children's music that adults would like, too? Are we allowed to make requests?

Your house = my house.
By the way, I don't know if Pirate cookies, as nice as they are, are worth flying across the border.

Oh, those boxes. You know how, when something sits in one place for too long, you just tend to adjust to it? Well, I'm not adjusting. BUT, they do have a home other than the corner of the living room. Where the china cabinet I wanted to buy a year ago should be.
As for the "Jet Lag Lounge..." I'm open to requests, but I think the first post will be a new release.
We have a lot of kids' music that we grown ups like too, I could do that.

RE: the Pirate cookies - You're probably right. Although this same sister-in-law was importing Total* breakfast cereal every time they returned to Canada from a trip south. Her husband ate it every morning when they lived in the US, and apparently couldn't find a satisfactory substitute. I don't think they do that anymore, though.

Mad Hatter said...

Phew, I'm thankful my thing is over and done with. I know what you mean though. It's handy to have a post series that you can fall back on every so often. Knowing your taste in music, I can guarantee I'd be coming back for more.

MH: I am totally too wimpy to take on a series format like yours. I need someting that doesn't require that much thinking on my part. Oh, and I checked "Diary of a Worm" out. We both liked it. Now Ben wants a book on worm anatomy.

Misty said...

This was such a fun post. Thanks for making me laugh out loud! My son is also in the habit of asking for every stick, rock, and lizard to be his pet. I might take a leaf out of your book and think about saying yes sometime. But not if it means worms in the living room...Go Tater, GO!

My kids want a pet fish. They don't seem to realize that the dog we already own is at the top of the cool-fun-pet hierarchy. They'd probably trade you the dog for tater.
Aaahhh, you have boxes I have no baseboards. Barely even notice it anymore.
What is the pump house?
Also, as much as I love Beck, I must disagree about the Pirate cookies. They are bar-none the worst cookie ever. Even worse than the Girl Guide mint chocolate cookies. Blech.

theflyingmum said...

If you move the boxes, you would also see no baseboards - because I have yet to paper that wall as well...
"The Pump House:" we have a well, and an above-ground pump that pumps the well water to the house. The pump house is a shed that houses all this stuff. Or, as my husband says, it's an excuse to have an extra storage building. PS, don't drink the well water, it's totally yuck.
As for Tater, he's proving to be quite an interesting pet. We actually never see him, but he has a lot of neighbors, we are discovering...
