Have been without intarwebs since dunno when. LOOOOOOOONG weekend with Scarlett, but we made it and even got a few chores done. Fixed dinner with asparagus (from the Greek, asparagos. Thank you Junior Asparagus.)
We watched the gubenatorial debates at Brent's house last night, in which the poor Republican contender Russ Weeks stammered and blundered while Smoothy McSmootherton smirked and made direct eye contact with the camera (and all us folks out there in t.v. land) in an honest and disarming fashion. Honest? Manchin? Honor among Mafia maybe. I hate him. I hate what he's done to State Employees, and I fear what he will continue to do when he is re-elected, which he certainly will be, and not just because he has $2Mil in his re-election treasury, and not just cause poor Russ has only has $2000. We will never crawl out from under the domination of Coal-fed Democrats. Never. Manchin has said his goal is to eliminate the State Employee network altogether. I don't know what that means, but it scares me.
Then Scarlett and I went home and watched a Veggie Tales movie and sang along with all the songs at the top of our lungs. I do love me some Veggie Tales, I tell u whut. I need to find out if there's a Veggie Tales community here on LJ. I need a Larry-Go-Round icon.
Made some vegetable soup, but didn't have any cabbage or potatoes. Won't miss the potatoes so much, but cabbage gives a tangy flavor that is lacking in this batch. Still, it should fill our bellies until payday.
I hope to buy Scarlett her Halloween costume this weekend after payday. This will likely be her last year, and she wants to be a midnight fairy from KMart. So I will search and find it. Also this weekend Brent has acquired free tickets to the Symphony, wheee! I haven't been in years, and sure could use a chance to wear some of my nicer clothing. Barry Douglas will be the featured soloist. I love piano!
So I am officially Linky McLinkerson today. I quit at about page five of my friend's list, but I think I hit almost everything I've missed this weekend. Ya'll point me
