Warning: Sugar Coma Ahead


Mr Coffee and I saw the new movie Iron Man this weekend.

Out. Standing film.

I say GO! It had a good story, very comic bookish and action packed. Mr Coffee and I are going to buy it when it comes out on DVD. I forgot to mention it was rated PG. How often does that happen? I think most conservatives will love Iron Man only because Tony Stark is a jerk womanizer, alcoholic, and self-absorbed dude who turns from his evil ways after a brush with death by his own inventions.

See? Practically Veggie Tale material.

I'm feeling very sarcastic today. Can you tell?

Mr Coffee has left town again, and back out to work until Thursday. I miss him because he is my friend. We are the rare exception that we laugh and talk daily with each other. We have our days of course, but overall we are pretty much sugar overload. (Right Poopysy Woopsie?)

We have nearly 15 of marriage under our belt and we like AND love each others company. I miss him terribly when we're apart. We will be like those couples that make it in the news for being so dependent on each other. When one of us finally takes a dirt nap, the other will be right by their side within days. Call it soul mates, call it what you will, but we are connected heart and soul. Puffy heart and soul even.

Are you in a diabetic saccharine-sweet coma yet? We have that effect on people.


I have taken up my knitting needles again. I tend to get bored with projects, says the lady with half a bucket of fabric and yarn. I have to see results otherwise I get bored.

I purchased dollar store yarn last week. It's eyelash yarn and the color is scarlet-orangey red. I can't wait to see it take shape. I only do blankets and scarves because I get the biggest payoff in the shortest amount of time. I'm also going to finish a rag dolly for my niece before she starts college. She's a toddler now, but at this rate I'm going to need some motivation to get it done.

I'm designing templates again. This template at Bee Repartee I made from a two column into three columns. I'm also cooking and knitting. What is my problem? I think I'm having a midlife craft crisis. Next week, I may post on how to thresh your own wheat or how to tap your own maple syrup. I just can't seem to stop myself.

I'm off to macramé some cat hair into a throw rug.....

I'm waiting for you to post a photo of that cat hair rug.

Hrm. I guess I've totally missed the point of being conservative.

Anyway, I'm thrilled to hear that Iron Man was as good as the trailers suggest. Robert Downey, Jr. is the perfect guy to play a womanizing drunk who finds his inner hero and redeems himself – though some might suggest that only the second bit was any challenge at all to his acting ability. My boss at work, along with a couple other members of my new team, is an avid comics fan and has had Friday's opening date marked "vacation" on his calendar for months. I was considering joining them until I realized it was the day before the MS 150 and that I already had a vacation day scheduled to get ready for that.

It went well, by the way. As promised, I'll have a full recap for you once I can get my hands on a photo or two.

Oooo...do let me know if you get the syrup thing figured out, 'kay?

Dapoppins said...

There are trees that make syrup in this part of the world? How come I don't know that?

I happen to know you talk to the Hotty Coffee guy every stinkin day, cause he calls you every time I am talking to you on the phone...or if I am visiting you, or even if you are visiting me. It is just scary. You married your stalker, you know that, right?

You had me at "Holy Comic Books Movie Batman!"

Then you lost me.

My beloved and I are that way too. Ain't it grand?. We can look at other couples and know if they are the same.
It's almost like a secret clique or something

Heffalump said...

D and I are that way too. We just celebrated 12 years. I am already looking forward to retirement so we can have more time together!

That said: I bought this really cool 70's book on homesteading from the local library and it has all kinds of do it yourself things like how to butcher your own animals, how to make cheese and much more. If you run out of other ideas let me know!

Call me when you're ready for some midlife karaoke fun. ;-)

I think it's wonderful that you two are so close, that's the way it should be. That's the way I hope it will be for me someday. :)
I know what you mean about restlessness with crafts. I go in spurts where I'm really productive, and then get bored and feel like I just do the same thing over and over and over again.

Oh a cat hair rug would be niiice. Very erm, strokable. Yes, that's a word...

This is my first time here and first post of yours that I've read. I can relate to all of it! My husband and I have been married 18 years, and we are "lifers." (In light of the fact that I woke up in the middle of the night last night to hear him peeing on the bedroom floor, in the guestroom of his brother's house, instead of the bathroom, this is saying a LOT!) I also love to knit, though I haven't done so in years. Can't remember your first subject (sorry), but I plan to read more :)

I enjoyed Iron Man too - can't wait for the sequel!

I know what you mean about the hubster. I'm glad to hear that there are many thriving marriages out there. I hate being away from the man - I miss him too much!
