Unentitled Bitching

Ay-yi-yi, it's cold out there and I don't hear the kittens but food seems to keep disappearing although anything could be eating it.
I've got the blues this morning, no reason, shouldn't, life is fine, that soup was the best soup I ever made.
I need to go out and turn off all the water and then I'll have to go turn it back on tonight.
Whoa. My life is so hard, right?

Jason and Vergil came by while I was eating my breakfast to see if they could find something in the camouflage department for Vergil to wear tomorrow as they're going to go hunting. My across-the-street neighbor was driving home from Monticello the other night and hit a huge buck but it just glanced off the car, did some damage and took out the headlight but the deer just kept going. I heard yesterday of another woman I know who hit a deer coming back from Monticello and it totaled her car. It's a scary thing and you almost never see them until it's too late.

Okay. Here's another scary thing. Several years ago a dermatologist prescribed that shit you put on your face to burn off the pre-cancers and it cost about a thousand dollars a tube and I said, no, wasn't doing that, and he GAVE me a tube and I did it for awhile but then stopped when my face started looking like I'd taken a grater to it and for some reason, when Mr. Moon left, I thought I'd give it another go. It's  Winter. Whatever. You're supposed to do it for like NINETY DAYS and I've not even been doing it for nine days and my face looks like I took a grater to it. Obviously, my entire face is pre-cancerous.
This just can't be right.
Oh holy crap. Can they just peel me and put my innards in silk or something?

Just spoke to the ex and invited him and his wife to Thanksgiving. I informed him that I am not having mayonnaise and cream-cheese based casseroles this year and he laughed. He and his wife are the more Tofurky types so I told him to bring their Tofurky over here and they could eat oysters and stuff. I can't believe Thanksgiving is one week and one day away.
Are you fucking kidding me?

I guess I better make the cranberry relish.

Here's what it looks like out there this morning.

Icicles and Eggy Tina.

Ice coral?

Half the world is covered, buried, smothered in snow and here in North Florida we're all freaking out about ice coral.

Well, that's the way it goes.

Love...Ms. Moon


  1. Ugh, the holidays. I'll bring a bottle of wine (or eight). And whatever you do, don't eat the tofurkey. My ex's family used to make one for me (the only vegetarian) and would force me to eat it and it was THE. WORST. Of course, they also had things like salami that you were supposed to dip into peanut butter for an appetizer.

  2. We had the prettiest hoar frost yesterday! I hate winter, but it sure can be pretty.
    You're like this super-blogger. I can barely keep up. Pardon me if I don't always comment, but know that I read every word!
    Try not to worry so much about the chickens and the kitties and the taps and the deer and the will all be fine. :)

  3. What's the due date on that tube of ointment???? Also, could you be allergic to one or some of it, the emulsifier or whatever?

    Tofurkey? Ugh. I don't get why people who don't eat meat want to replace just the meat bit with something that can never ever be meat in any possible way. I always get pissed off by that, sorry. There are too many gorgeous vegetarian dishes to cook without bland leathery tofu.

    OK, I am just cranky because, oh, I wish I could eat properly again. One of these days, keep your fingers crossed.

  4. Are you SURE you live in Florida? Those pictures are just bizarre.
    15 coming here, God help me. I seem to be the designated cook in the family, which I really don't mind. It's the hauling out of dishes, the setting up of tables, and all the logistic stuff that no one notices but still takes 2 days to organize and set up.

  5. Ice coral???!!!
    And Thanksgiving is only 1 week and 1 day away???
    I'm not sure which of these is more terrifying.

  6. That ice coral is wild! I have NEVER seen anything like that!

    I can't believe Thanksgiving is so close. Fortunately ours is going to be pretty low-key.

  7. holy crap! we got to freezing her and maybe a bit below for a few nights but no frozen water. I'm glad I declined that cream ($800 is what the dermatologist told me) and just went ahead and had it cut off/out even though I have a little lumpy place on my nose now.

  8. Interesting ice formations. We got cold here but not down to 24 F as thought. The annuals are dead but we got all the great plants into the green houses. We are going for our fourth green house! That is a Christmas present to my wife. Sigh--tired of the dark and cold.

  9. Woah, I've never seen ice coral before!


Tell me, sweeties. Tell me what you think.
