goodbye, cool world

just spent my last night at our old house, where the lease runs out at midnight on monday.  today sis and i are moving to the new place, where our do-it-yourselfing has fallen a bit behind.  hence, internet is only one of a plethora of things i will have to do without indefinitely.  here's the whole list.  imagine 1950's game show music as you read.

  • internet
  • cable tv
  • a washer or dryer
  • a microwave oven
  • a garage door opener
  • completely painted walls
  • baseboard moldings
  • a bathroom sink
  • mattresses
  • a living room floor
  • a refrigerator

that's right, friends, i'm goin on a camping trip.  at least we've got brand new carpets to sleep on.

    It's like an adventure! In your new house!And as a side-benefit, when you finally DO get those things, think about how grateful you'll be for them, since you won't be taking them for granted.In the meantime, if you need to use any of those things on the list, you know that you can always come over to our place! I'll cue up the cheesy 1950's game show music.

    That's right – the ol' Bakin' chalet is up for your use at any time! You are our daughter after all! 😉 You'll be done soon!

    Ernie —- Come on DOWN!!!! (just don't let Bob Barker
    feel you up…'cause I think that's why he had all those hot chicks on
    that show, after all).
    Internet…overrated! (I dunna' have eet)
    Cable TV (phsaw! I get two channels…and I don't even
    know what they are – though I think I'm supposed to be ENcouraging you
    not DIScouraging you…right?)
    A Washer or Dryer (Silly girl, that's what G-d made Mothers for!! Take it from me…or not)
    Microwave Oven (What ees thees Macrowhaive Oveen? I zink I
    have nawt hurd of eet beefor) *really bad french accent *
    Garage Door Opener (You have a garage!!! * green with envy *)
    Completely Painted Walls (Yet again,
    overrated…I mean, come on…wet paint smell will just give you a
    headache…or July…and then you'd have to listen to the Weepies…can
    I come over?!?)
    Baseboard moldings (At least you get to see the dust
    bunny's as they collect…since you don't have internet this could be
    good. Better than cable, too!…..or not)
    A Bathroom Sink (I can't think of anything witty
    here…Perhaps the kitchen sink isn't too far away – make a run for it!
    Just don't touch any doorknobs…or something like that…)
    Mattressess (Fluffy cat…fluffy
    blankets…fluffy sister….you can lay on any old thing…just gag
    them first so you their complaining doesn't keep you awake all night
    long…you with me?)
    A Living Room Floor (Cement can be attractive…and really
    easy to clean…or you could hire some Hot Roving Eyed Man to come and
    finish for you…* winks* good idea, eh?)
    A Refrigerator (Now this I know you have now….now all
    you have to do is keep it stocked with stuff…or write blogs about how
    empty it is and people will feel bad enough for you to give you
    food….not that I know anything about that…)
