Animal, vegetable, mineral...

While discussing a rather delicious beer brewed by Flat Bread... (it has squash in it)

Ms. V: "It's called cornucopia. It's really good."
Leslie: "No. I don't like squash."
Ms. V: "It's beer. It doesn't taste like squash. It just has squash in it."
Leslie: "I don't care. It still freaks me out."


(It really is a great beer, folks).

Our Tuesday nights

Referencing the fact that Honky Tonk Tuesday at Radio Bean and Ethiopian Tuesdays at RB's corresponding restaurant, Duende, coincide:

Patrick: "There's nothing more Honky Tonk than Ethiopians."

Love it. Love Honky Tonk Tuesday.

Inanimate objects

Drew: "Why does your car keep attacking me?!" - after being hit in the head twice by - you guessed it - my car.

He was a good sport about it.

Bright light! Bright light!

At a random birthday party in "The Middle of Nowhere, VT" this past summer...

Ben: Want to go light fireworks?
Ms. V: Psha! Do you really have to ask?!

We had fun. 'Nuff said. I only screamed a little bit...

Parts I & II in one post

Roadtrips with Ben tend to start off at the Burlington Bagel Bakery. The following quotes reference the napkin holders at this fine establishment, with the first quote occurring after I got my hand stuck in one.

Ben: "These are the worst napkin holders I've ever seen!"
(They really are awful.)

Fast forward one month to another roadtrip.
Ms. V: "Oh my gosh! I was just about to say 'These are the worst napkin holders ever!' then I remembered that's exactly what you said last time!"
Ben: "They ARE the worst ever. If there were a hell, it would be filled with these napkin holders."

We have now decided to start evaluating napkin holders. Yeah, for real. Why? Because that's how we roll.

Building on the last...

Ms. V: "We treat it with TCA, but don't ask me what TCA stands for because for some reason, I can't remember right now."

Ben: "Trichloroacetic acid?"

Ms. V: "Yes!! That's it!"

Ben: "We compliment each other perfectly!"

It's the simple things in life, folks - especially when it comes to friendship.

No explanation, really...

Ben: "You had me at prolapse."

...That's all I have to say about that...

One from the road

This one is from the road, our first day in Yosemite National Park. A beautiful little red-headed girl and I crossed paths and exchanged huge grins... Joe looked on with amusement.

Joe: "That little ginger girl looked happy to see another ginger."
Ms. V: "We *were* happy to see each other! We gingers have a secret society."
Joe: "That's crazy... It's a crazy secret society."
Ms. V: "A secret society of crazy?"
Joe: laughter...

I also made sure to point out that I'm not ginger. I'm auburn.

On this harvest moon...

No quotes today, folks. I'm feeling happily serious (serene perhaps?)

We've just moved in to autumn, a truly special time in my book - especially here in the northeast, where the colors explode across both the ground and sky. The addition of the harvest moon last night got me thinking about what autumn truly is, in a somewhat spiritual sense. It's another time of transition, just like spring, but it's a time of transition toward closings and endings, to prepare us for the rest and recovery of winter. Each season has such emotional beauty attached to it, but autumn is a little extra special because it helps us prepare. It allows us time to say goodbye to the vibrant life of spring and summer and ease into the solitude and opportunities for introspection that winter presents to us. Autumn is a cool, crisp, colorful, cider-filled cushion. Embrace it fully. It's the perfect transition.

Happy equinox to all! Hope you enjoyed the harvest moon last night.

So my cats are large...

Patrick's observation about the dynamic duo of Condor and Grenidine...

"They're not exactly cats. They're more like furniture. Like moving ottomans..."

A sisterly convo

Via Meebo with the other Ms. V:

EEV: "i'm in my 15th hour of telephone conference with this client since last wednesday"
Ms. V: "I am very much not jealous of you."
EEV: "I am very much not jealous of me either."

Another funny conversation

Most of these will be from Joe for now, because I collected a lot on our recent cross-country trip. Poor Joe. :) Ahhh, nah. There's no such thing as bad publicity, right?

At a gas station in South Dakota... middle of nowhere... old-fashioned gas pumps that I had to remind myself how to use...
Ms. V: "I feel like I'm in the wild west!"
Joe: You ARE in the wild west!"

No joke, people. It was a little bit "Twilight-zone-ish."

I have funny conversations sometimes

Actually, I have funny conversations a lot of the time. To basically completely copy "My girlfriend is ridiculous", I'm going to start posting some of these conversations. Good times. Here's one now:

Ms. V: "There's a Waffle House in Cleveland. We could go to the Waffle House in Cleveland! Woo!"
Joe: "We're not going anywhere in Cleveland."
Ms. V: "Except the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame."
Joe: "Yeah, and leaving!"

More to come soon. Promise.
