WE HAVE FINALLY BEEN OFFERED A HOUSE!!!!!!

August 7th, we said goodbye to Germany and hello to Turkey.

Translation: my household items are in a warehouse. We are living in a 2 bedroom hotel. With children. Two cats. One husband (yes, he needs to be listed as a seperate item).

You know you've lived in a hotel for too long when you begin referring to it as 'home'. And refurnish it. You think I'm kidding? Eh eh. I purchased a writing desk, executive chair, my own bedding, towels, dishes, espresso maker, electric griddle...I didn't like their stuff. It cluttered my muse.
My husband learned to smile.
Mastercard learned to whimper.

Bring jokes. Bring drinks. Bring music. I'll fire up the grill--also new, as I couldn't stand hotel's little hibache. Ugh. Just don't tell the husband I'm messing with his grill.
Why?
Last time, I kinda forgot charcoal has this mombo absorbtion ability....so I kept pouring on the fluid.

That bloody bonfire resembled a geysur.
Put a whole new meaning in 'hot' wings.

Catfish, salmon steaks, and ribs are being placed on the grill.
Led Zeppelin's Kashmir plays in the background. A fresh pitcher of mango margaritas (over ice, not slushed) is making the rounds....

YOU'RE ALL INVITED.....

She's moving in with Mr. Thunder?

But I thought she was in Turkey!

Wow, cool! Okay, close your ears for this part Inkydink...

Are they closed?

Alright: you guys, we have to think of a housewarming gift, and I think the cheapest way to go is if we all chip in and arrive at the same time, so she's not expecting multiple gifts, which is why she claimed to have access to salmon steaks in Turkey in the first place. But what can we get for the fewest coins possible?

i have some wonderful ideas but common decency, 1 restraining order and a lawsuit prevent me from saying them out loud. ;)

Isn't it obvious?

What's the one thing Inky likes more than anything?

That's true, but she's married.

What's the next thing? Usually to be taken nasally...

For our more delicate drinkers, we have strawberry daquiries...don't get me on spelling, I did a nose dive into bobbing for worms in the tequila bucket.
What? None of you have evah played this game?

As for designated drivers, we've a slew of chipper airmen...little one-stripers...freshman....down, Jay! Back....oh Gawd....

FIBULATOR!!!!

no way.
i'm on my best behavior when i'm at someone else's house.
especially if it's a housewarming party.

*grabs apple pie, a beer, and an empty cardboard box and climbs back into the attic*

We're awaiting word of when they can deliver our household items.

Mind you, they've been sitting in a warehouse....130 degree temps in said warehouse....

I already know my candle collection will now resemble sludge.
My husband snickers.

I remind him that others have received their electronics with wires melted. Then whisper four words: sixty-five inch television

Yeah. Suddenly, melt-downs aren't so funny, are they bubba?

Someone hand me a bun...hot dogs are ready...Haggis tastes better with relish...

*comes out of attic. goes out to car. comes back in with backpack and coleman stove and heads back to attic*

Inky

*looks around for the apple pie*

Huh. Wonder if the baffoon who stole the pie realizes it was my latest eBay purchase?

I was so excited to have that pie from the set of American Pie....I mean, when that kid stuck his...er...well....guess I better attempt a straight face...

Inky
09-17-2007, 06:05 PM
Yeah...tell me how that pie tasted...you know...the dipped wick flavor of the month...

Inky
09-17-2007, 06:06 PM
Huh. Cray's like one of those silent fluffies: invisible, yet noxious....

no one moves from germany to turkey without some sort of police escort -- or have the air force convince them it's a good idea to go.

Inky
09-17-2007, 10:47 PM
Oh, we had armed guards...interesting flight, to say the least. Problem was, they weren't there for our protection, but rather in search of weapons of mass destruction.

I hid my cleavage.

Upon landing, everyone was told to remain seated. Then our name was called, and we were allowed to disembark before all others.
It was rather embarrassing. Everyone was whispering 'who are they?'
I did my best Queen Elizabeth wave.

[closing eyes, waving hands over crystal ball, channeling aerial port nco ...]

"Anyone traveling with small children or those in the rank of E-9, O-6 or GS-15 will be allowed to deplane first ..."

Inky
09-18-2007, 09:10 AM
Yeah...that first rank you called...that be the one.
Ridiculous, really.
Small children? Uh, no. Pre-teens.
Trust me, there were others that should have been afforded the luxury of leaving first.
My husband doesn't act the loon being married to an author, I don't act the loon & wear his stripes. Key word: HIS.
I've a few friends that are officer's wives & they feel the same way--though their reserved parking sure comes in handy when we're running late. Yep, we laugh hysterically, especially when their 'reserved' parking is taken, and they're forced to 'slum' by parking with us regular folk :)

You've made me curious, jstybud, but I'll remain cooth & not ask.
