News Flash!

This just in: The longer couples are together, the more they irritate each other!

Reeeeeally? Wow, I’d *never* have guessed!

How is this news? And yet it is.

And you know what else researchers found?

That this phenomenon is *normal*

Whoooooooa! There’s some groundbreaking research there, folks!

When I mentioned this article to The Good Man last night he replied, “Anyone who is surprised by this did not grow up in a home with two adults in a long term relationship”.

He’s very wise, that Good Man of mine.

Hell, I get irritated with myself if I spend too much time with me. It only stands to reason.

But then again, I know I’m *perfect* to live with and surely will never irritate The Good Man.

heh.

Happy Friday, ya’ll. May you and your respective partners have only mild irritation this weekend!

Getcher Motor Runnin’….

The Good Man and I are off on a road trip. A little hooky from work today and Monday and Mama Karen’s ALL happy about it.

Catch you on the other side.

Happy (safe!) Weekend!

Go NY Giants! :)

Well! I’ll not be visiting Virginia anytime soon!

Was perusing Yahoo!’s “odd news” today and found something there that shocks and inflames the senses!

“If you’re served a pitcher of authentic sangria in a Virginia restaurant, someone’s breaking the law.”

*gasp*

A local tapas place was cited for violating the law. They are currently appealing the fine and going to the legislature to roll back the ban.

“The Alcoholic Beverage Control Department…even ordered restaurant employees to pour its sangria — about 40 liters — down the drain.”

*gasp*

The odd law says you can’t mix wine or beer with spirits, so the sangria made with red wine and triple sec is against the law.

And so then are Boilermakers, Irish Car Bombs, and the Kir Royale.

Uncivilized!

I toast to the tapas joint and their success in repealing this law!

On this Friday after a *very* long week, it won’t take me much to make a toast.

By the way, in my humble experience, La Tertulia in Santa Fe has the finest Sangria around. But that was nigh on 10 years ago since I’ve had it. Any better contenders?

That said…headed home soon. Done. Happy Weekend!

It’s been a hell of a week. And getting back into routine, not so good.

And work is once again hair on fire.

I’ll just say this: Happy Weekend to all!

We’ll see you Monday, same bat time, same bat channel!
