Let the summer begin.

June 27, 2011


The commune community from the days of yore is (mostly) assembled! The Gebhardts and Brad assembled in our home today with Curt and the Pesters (sounds like a band) for some visiting and, of course, a game of Settlers.

They look fresh because it's only the middle of the game - two hours in.

Deborah and I watched the Real Housewives of New Jersey while the game went on (and on and on and on). I’m a little sorry introduced her to my trashy guilty pleasure – it has no redeeming value whatsoever. I don’t know why that show is so appealing to me. Maybe because I love the drama and can’t believe how people talk do harshly and brashly to each other’s faces. Those wives are not very passive-aggressive, which is my default setting.

Later Marie came over! It was a festival! (Then I putzed out and went to bed. That’s me – party pooper.)

    Your homemade strawberry lemonade was delicious. And I was glad it was there, so I wouldn’t have to drink pine-tree-flavored gin and tonic.
