Blah blah blah...

I knew I said I was going to take a break, I lied. You can hold it against me some day, like the guy that duped Oprah. What was his name? You know the author who later had to rewrite the preface of his novel. Laughs. I'm so glad I didn't read it, I would've been so pissed. Although, now I'm kinda curious what all the brouhaha was about. You gotta love Oprah and how she got all bent up about it, I guess we're lucky Jerry Springer isn't sensitive about guest credibility, huh?

Mercury is in retrograde, and I can not wait until June 19th for it to fix itself before I bludgeon someone. (If you're wondering how I got here, um-I just said, Mercury is in retrograde) Gemini schmenini, we are all Cancers in my house-with the exception of Puberty Man who has descended from his very own galaxy, and we're feeling it. The favorite guy has been pushing buttons like a New Yorker awaiting an elevator. And, I'm trying...really I am, but this baby is about to come down like an anvil.

Communication is such an integral part of our lives, but especially mine. Much of what makes me as hilarious as I am (Pats back) is my ability to communicate across so many ages, cultures and whatever else separates silly humans. With that, I notice the most subtle nuances and connotations in the communication of others. It makes me come across as a paranoid schizophrenic at times-I've asked and no-that's not it, I just place a great deal of importance on verbal and written communication.

You might imagine being married to a visual creature who would sooner grunt and point than form a complete sentence to be a bit er, well...trying. Let's just say it is insurmountably interesting. Joe is a musician yet, he describes even sound through flailing hand movements and intricately placed digits. That baffles me as much as I baffle him with the number of words I can string together in an effort to convey a sentiment as simple as, "You piss me off." Mercury in retrograde only exacerbates the insanity we've struggled nearly 20 years to overcome. Pauses... "Am I making any sense?"

In short, Mercury, can you please get your shit right? Okay, because I'm running out of beer and patience. Thanks, like really it is much appreciated. Winks. I know I'll look back at this post like, "What the hell?" It's cool we're all allowed a talking shit day. I think tomorrow I'll just cook something...this is pretty bad. Laughs.

Great post! It's okay to run out of patience... but beer? That's a problem.
