weekend pickthrough- blackout edition

27 02 2010

so the last 24 hours have been a complete clusterfuck. thanks to an evening of 60+ MPH winds, i was completely without power from midnight last night, to about 4 pm today (yes, that picture was taken from my porch this morning as two city workers removed a large tree branch from the cable lines leading into my condo). on the upside, i didn’t have to go to work. on the downside, i spent the majority of the day inside my impenetrable blanket cocoon curled up on the couch trying to stay warm. on the double downside, my phone wasn’t charged- and there wasn’t an operational wireless connection within a one mile radius. eventually i did wander down to starbucks to thaw out and plug in my phone, but it was a sad sad day. it’s official, i am technologically dependent.

anyway, i’m sorry for the delay. i’ve been kind of crap at posting this week, and hope to have the slack picked up in the near future.

i haven’t run more than a mile in over a year. also, i got fat. despite this, in a moment of demon possession, i signed myself up for the maine cancer foundation twilight 5k. oops.

johnny weir is officially too gay for figure skating.

part of me wants to tell american apparel to fuck off, part of me wants to order like 10 of these right now.

is that 3 week old spaghetti sauce still safe to eat? still tasty has the answers. (via saving your green– another sexy maine bloggess on the scene)

why free gift cards are rarely ever free, portland penny pincher style.

vintage denture mayhem from the strange maine blog!

it’s ok christopher, i blew out of the spelling bee too.

at least my sandwich party is guaranteed to be less lame than this house party. (i’m imagining some very inappropriate party games here)

yes i am a mother fucking pterodactyl. (congrats on your book deal oatmeal!)

My cousin and I have this huge joke about pterodactyls. I even got her one for Christmas from the dollar section at Target. Any time we see one somewhere we send each other pictures of it… we’re weird. I sent her that from The Oatmeal when I first saw it (the Oatmeal rocks BTW). And thanks for the Still Tasty site, I am such a freak about leftovers/anything that is in the fridge for more than like 5 days. That site is perfect for someone like me! LOL
