Last night I had a dream that Mike and I were cleaning the living room, throwing out everything that reminded us of us as a couple. I was playing a Rancid CD where, at one point, in between songs, Lars yells, "This is unforgivable!" I went into the kitchen to get some spray cleaner, and when I came back, Mike was changing the CD. I got mad, but he said, "I just want to play the Rancid CD that includes John Mayer."

Mike: Don't sigh. Listen. I always listen to you when you talk about some guy's butt crack. Oh, wait, his name is McCracken. "Look how cute he is as he massages Quinn's combover!"

Mike thought AFK meant "away from computer" but they changed it to a K so people wouldn't get confused with the American Football Conference.

My first trick-or-treaters handed me religious pamphlets. So I kidnapped them and sacrificed them to my pagan god.

Valerie: Would you support me with a career change?

Mike: No.

Valerie: I played trumpet 15 years ago. Maybe I'll start a ska band.

Mike: No one listens to ska.

Valerie: But no one's heard MY ska band.

Mike: And no one ever will. Trust me, you have more of a captive audience right now with your 100 or so students than you will ever have with a ska band.

Valerie: I don't like when people say "passed" instead of "died".

Mike: It's more respectful.

Valerie: If we said "died" all the time it would scare people into living better. When they say someone "passed" it makes me think they were on "The $10,000 Pyramid".

Mike: There is something wrong with you and I don't know what.

Valerie: I wish my uterine lining was made of something other than blood.

Mike: I think you just named the Gerard Way-Bert McCracken supergroup.

Valerie: What?

Mike: Something Other Than Blood.

Valerie: They would not form a supergroup. They were boyfriends but then they broke up and married ladies.

Mike: But it's for Darfur!

Valerie: *cracks up*

Mike: The band will last exactly one day, until Bert sits down at his piano and says, "Gerard, given your own experience with Bandit Lee, I would like us to write a song for my future child, who I will name Gypsy Whore."

Because Mike and I are classy people, our backyard is a big pile of gravel and a shed, and we use this area for our dog, Abby, to go to the bathroom.

In the beginning of Spring, I noticed that our pile of gravel was sprouting some weeds. I have an aversion to gardening because 1) bugs, 2) dirt, and 3) feminism*. So I figured I'd leave the little sprouts alone, and they would soon be killed off by living in gravel, getting peed on, or the onset of winter.

Then this happened. )

My mother has informed me that most of that is rhubarb. The thing that troubles me is that this rhubarb has grown to Valerie-size proportions with no care, no actual dirt, and while covered in dog pee. Which makes me wonder if they are even really plants at all.

I wanted to post that here so you can laugh, and so that I have "before" pictures, because I'm going to clean it up, bugs, dirt, and feminism* be damned. I will either do it tomorrow or Wednesday. If I don't return, avenge my death.



* While I realize that gardening in and of itself is not intrinsically anti-feminist, it is a traditional woman's role, and my personal brand of feminism includes not falling into traditional women's roles when/if I can help it. Also, Mike already mows the front lawn, so he can do the rest of the stuff while he's out there. Also, I don't give a crap about flowers, except for maybe hyacinths, but just because Oscar Wilde used them as a metaphor for penis in a letter once.

Mike: You look beautiful.

Valerie: Awww, thank you. I don't even have make-up on.

Mike: That's okay. I don't have my contacts in.

As Mike plays guitar -

Valerie: That's nice song.

Mike: Thank you. It's called "tuning".
