ummm, if you are needing cheering, you may want to postphone DW. Just saying. Good mojo coming from over here though.
Thanks to Tumblr Savior, I have remained 100% spoiler-free. The negative side-effect was that my dashboard last night and a good part of this morning was quiet as a tomb. I mean, I know it’s going to be sad. But isn’t that what you do when you’re sad: listen to sad songs and watch sad movies and shows? Wallowing in sorrow is a tried and true way to feel better. Well…the gelato, cheesecake, and greasy-cheesy appetizers will help, too.

are you writing a tumblr bible, or??
Maybe I should.
1 “In the beginning, someone created something and called it a blog. And, lo, darkness fell across the crevasses of the deep. 2 Thus sayeth the users, “Bring us a blogging platform that is useful.” 3 And the internet, being full of evil evilness, and trolls, gaveth its users GeoCities and Xanga. And the users were sore afraid. 4 And again, the users cried out into the depths of the internet, “Giveth us a blogging platform we can actually use, that doth not have animated backgrounds and mouse pointers, and doth not have midi audio files that playeth in the background with no way to turneth them off-eth.” 5 And, lo, the internet respondeth, saying, “I shall giveth thee Blogger.” 5 And for a moment, the users were happy. 6 But some users were still not satisfied.
7 And lo, on the 27th day in the month of April, the internet sent an angel. 8 His hair was that of a mop, and his gait was wafer thin, and they called him David of Karp. 9 “Fear not, for I bring tidings of animated gifs. For unto you is born this day in the Internet, THE TUMBLR, which shall be for all people, especially those who liketh Doctor Who and photographs of food.”
10 And so it was that the users danced in the streets and celebrated with the playing of instruments and the photographs of cats. 11 Until they tried to search for something or send someone a message, that is.
I may have lived within the greater area of Surrey, BC until recently :)
Based on all of your recent travels and the whole “woman without a home” thing going on, I’m gonna go ahead and guess that you’re an International Super Spy® now ala Angelina Jolie in Salt, using Tumblr as a sort of “cover” and “bait and switch,” disguising your actual location by posting pics from around the world, when you’re actually thousands of miles away from where the photo was taken doing…I don’t know…spy stuff.

I used to have to ride across the Mississippi twice a day on a ferry. That would just grate on my nerves. I have a healthy respect for deep water when in a car. Glad you made it!
I don’t even want to tell you how scary the movie “What Lies Beneath” was to me. Ugh. Every time we get on the ferry, I’m not happy until we are completely off the boat.
shovelbum replied to your photo: Can I tell you how much I hate being on the second…
must be a small ferry if you are in your car all the time. I miss the ferry, going to Victoria on it was the best!
The Mukilteo-Clinton ferries are actually pretty large, and you can get out of your vehicle. It was just a bit difficult with a 3 year old, a 2 year old, and a 7 week old, especially on that incline and how close we were parked to the side of the vessel. I’m usually scrambling as fast as I can to get out of the vehicle because of my death phobia. Just wasn’t feasible this trip.
Just out of curiosity: what is everyone’s death phobia?

I need one of those too. Yes! I’ll be there in Friday, well, in spirit anyway. Make extra just in case tho.
We’ll be expecting you and the entirety of Casa Interrupted. :-)

I feel like this needs a ‘More You Know’ reply. One day I will get to HD for pizza, one day.

:-) Thanks for the offer.
Well, consider yourselves all invited.
Pizza peel? That’s interesting
For as long as Stacie and I have been doing Pizza Night at our places of residence (The Hobbit Door, Helm’s Deep), which I think is going on upwards of 6+ years now, I’ve been wanting to get a really good pizza peel.
We have a couple of really nice round Pampered Chef baking stones that we use, but haven’t had a peel to be able to preheat the stone and then transfer the prepped pizza to it in the oven.
This is going to hopefully afford me the ability to make some really good New York-style pizza here in the PNW (specifically Di Fara’s Pizza in Brooklyn…the absolute best piece of pie in these here states).
Anyway, on to the rules of Friday Night Pizza Night @ Helm’s Deep:
- We make pizza at Helm’s Deep every Friday night.
- Stacie is off work every other Friday (June 15th is her next Friday night off. You do the math from there).
- On the Fridays that Stacie is off we have a complete open door policy. You want homemade pizza? Come on over! Just let us know by noon that you’re coming so we can make enough.
- Sometimes we also do homemade garlic breadsticks and deep-fried cheese sticks if we’re feeling ambitious.
- The more the merrier. Bring your kids, pets, friends. Again, just let us know you’re coming.
- It’s free homemade pizza. And you’re all invited.
Ugh. Feel better! That is an order!
Thanks, buddy. Doing my best. Feels like a 24-hour thing, hopefully.

well, this looks significantly better than my steamed veggies and salad lunch. sigh!Have to admit, it probably was. Now, it was in no way as good for me as your lunch was for you, but dear lord in heaven it was tasty.

I have yet to try to the Five Guys, need to compare to In-N-Out and Shake Shack in which the latter is winning at the moment.In -N-Out definitely has more variety in their menu than Five Guys does, and they don’t carry milkshakes, which is almost a travesty. However, what they do have, especially their fries, is very, very good.

there’s a five guys in the same strip mall as an in-n-out near my house. i keep intending to do a taste test - something to put on the agenda.I am very sad with the fact that the closest In-N-Out to me is 618.2 miles away. Not that I’ve checked or anything.
so glad that didn’t happen when I was in Vancouver for Christmas. Driving is a nightmare then.
Yeah, the big problem out here in the greater Seattle area is they simply don’t (or barely) treat the roads. Being born and raised an Ohio boy, I got spoiled by the salt trucks and snow plows. Stacie is from Minnesota, where their winter preparedness was a well-oiled machine. It’s definitely been an adjustment seeing how everything just shuts down when the snow hits the ground.
Beer or root beer?
Root beer, orange and vanilla cream soda, black cherry soda, and ginger ale. All from Thomas Kemper, a Portland, Oregon based soda brewer and bottler. All made with pure cane sugar. There’s beer in the house, too. Just nothing that exciting right now.
What is this amazing party you have here?
No party, just a wonderful find at Costco today. I really enjoy well-crafted sodas with Italian dishes, which we have quite often here.
