A wee bit nippy

Aye! That's the sight that greeted me eyes this fine morning. Set the alarm for 8am and after a vigorous round of Tweeting during a hideous bout of insomnia (thanks OzA and Reed) and 3 hours of sleep, I rolled out of bed.

SHIT! I forgot to plug the car in. Fortunately when I was home for Xmyth my Dad put a new battery in my car. It was sluggish to start, but it STARTED! The other would have whimpered and refused.

Dad rocks!

It's my son's birthday today and we're having a 2 day celebration. Today was bean casserole (a favorite of his), pumpkin pie (a favorite) and a family movie (Superman Returns, which he got for xmyth). Tomorrow it's going out to eat (probably Pizza Ranch), opening presents and eating the cake. I can't believe he's 12!!!!!!!

Happy birthday to your son!!

Sorry about my comments on your previous post. I'll delete them if you want me to.

Protium- I'm hoping to take pics for you in the next day or so

Tracey- I rather like them. If they are causing you pain, delete away, but I would rather you let them stand. :)

What, pray tell, is a "bean casserole" and why is it the favorite food of a 12 year old boy??! You'll have to forgive me, being here next to Mexico my whole life, I can only imagine it in the context of nachos.

Fiery said...

EintoB Nup, no nachos at all. Though he does like Nachos and Tacos etc... It probably is a rather unusual favorite for a 12 year old, but he's unusual and I love him for it.

Green Bean Casserole
made with Cream of Chicken Soup and French's Dried Onions.

It's my daughter's absolute favorite and when she had it for her birthday she ate all but the 3 servings the rest of us were given before she confiscated the remaining. I think it took her two sittings to polish it off. Maybe. LOL!!!!

25 below zero!

Our best hope for hooking up lies with global warming.

I'm buying a shit load of hairspray this weekend, going out in my driveway and just spraying it at the sun.

Fiery said...

Thump- he will surely love to hear it as he was asking after you and Protium just today.

Poodles- There are days like today when I think so.

XO- I love your sense of humor most of all. :D Hairspraying the sun. *SNERK* :)) LOL

freak that's cold, I don't think I've been any where in my life that cold.

Are Reed and I being thanked or blamed for the insomnia?

Happy Birthday to your son hope he enjoys the day(s).

I went camping this weekend and it was in the low 70's. That's above zero.

Traceytreasure said...

Your winters would kill me. It's a good thing my parents moved to CA when they did.

I deleted away!! Hope you don't mind. Yesterday sucked!

Happy birthday celebrating for two days. I'd send you some sun but I would die without it!!


Fiery said...

OzA- you were happy participants. It was fun! :) Nice 3-way we had going there. I literally LOL'd really hard when he said he blamed me for the direction of the conversation.

Joe- the 70's are my favorite temps. Just mmmm mmmm beautiful. :)

Tracey- we all have days like that dear. *giggles* sometimes it's fun to play a little smear the queer when you're feeling crappy. But then the regret sets in and you realize you left skid marks. No worries! Hope today is heaps better. ~Hugs~

And its my youngest thump's birthday tomorrow woo hoo :))
