March 20, 2008There was this girl you see, who was a great friend in school..7th grade I think is where we met. She was "the cool one" and all, so I thought it would be a good idea to keep her around. Through the drama and trials of us growing up, we managed to help each other, honestly, I don't know what I would have done without her. Highlights include being there to witness other friends come and go, high school followed by college , marriages, divorces and short bus. Helpful to have a friend for 20+ years, even more helpful when it's GIDDY. Sorry girls and boys but lucky for me, she really is my BEST friend! But, lucky for you, I'll share her with the rest of the world!
October 10, 2007A public "Thanks" to a fellow scarpone slinger!
Having the honor of the first scarpone of the season was very much appreciated, just slow in being publicly acknowledged. I will blame work, and an extended hangover. Anyway kudos to your hospitality. It was a great touchstone for me, having many fond memories of hollering "shut up for you!" at my coworkers. (and now you know what kind of girl she is, folks).
As you no doubt know by now, the scarpone are as good as ever. Which is to say delicious. Thanks again Giddy.

October 1, 2007Giddy, one of the FUNNEST peeps EVER!
I admire her and love her and I am very blessed to know her.
Plus, we wear pokadot underwear on the same day without ever planning it! Now that's friendship!
I look forward to many more memories with her in the years to come....
Are we there yet?
June 13, 2007Wow… How do I describe Giddy in a testimonial?
Well, that is if Giddy IS her real name, she goes by so many.
Even though we have only really been friends for a short time, she is one of my best friends. She is my confidant, she is my support, she is the shortbus I call when I need to smile. She is an incredible mom, an incredible friend to all who let her, and she has GREAT boobs. I have watched her grow independent and strong. I am very proud to call her friend.
November 12, 2006Giddy is one of my best friends. We always have the best times together. She's a great listener and secret keeper. More often than not when we get together we end up laughing so hard we can hardly breathe and I get muscle cramps in my jaw. Thanks for that.

I know there were a couple of people who really enjoyed some of my tales of Nero the tomato plant... I've just posted a final story and photograph of him at www.rufflesandridges.com for those who are interested.
I still come over and read stuff on Tribe... once or twice a week... if it is working... I just don't bother to post much here anymore. I don't trust the site, and I have about a billion other things distracting me. It's nothing personal... it's just Tribe.

eventually, I might even do a Dickens post... but this picture is just too awesome not to share.
that's MY BOY! Fascinated by the pretty girl in the window.... "but mommy, how does she get out of there?"
After 13 years of Renaissance Faire, and five years of Dickens Fair one would think I'd be used to corsets and bodices... one would think I would know my limits and how to eat and drink while wearing such a contraption.Tue, December 2, 2008 - 11:44 PM permalink - 6 comments

FYI: I am reading... oh man am I reading.
I have been reading as many blogs as I can as often as I can. I don't usually get a chance to comment on everyone's stuff... but trust me, I am laughing, crying, dancing, celebrating, and hugging you all with every word. I am so thankful to be alive right now... to have the ability to spend an evening reading and catching up with all of my friends. Be it silly, poignant, topical, or none of the above... read more
