Friday, July 1

July = Mr. Wookie's Birthday = Funfest!

Why hello new month! What brings you here? Is it that "June Gloom" hasn't been seen for the last few days and I'm LOVING the gorgeous you and 8-lb. Baby Jesus are bestowing on the area? Yes, yes it has.

But I'm caught off-guard...I thought yesterday was Wednesday, so naturally I had an additional day to lolligag and not fill in my Friday Fill-In answers. Maybe that's because yesterday I was busy saving the world. And that translates to "Ginger speak" for going to Fossil for a new watch battery, taking the dog in for a nail trim (we're still working on how to do that in home and save the money), and mailing off packages meant for Ann Taylor Loft, Bare Necessities, and Running Warehouse (goodbye things-that-didn't-fit!).

Oh, you're tired of my rambling?? [Story of this blog...]

Have you (spouse) ever considered joining the military and what do you think of dual military couples? submitted by Project Army Wife

No. NO. Nein. Nilch. Nope. I have  something against wearing a uniform personally. I don't want to. I don't want to look like an evolved Catholic schoolgirl where I order all my clothes from I semi did that in Virginia when working in the Catering Department. Now all those clothes are in the donate pile so someone driven for a career in hospitality can pick up some black pants, black shirts, and dress the part.

Military couples are part crazy/part badass. You crazy to be stationed at 2 completely different locales and make it work. You's a badass because nothing screams "America, F*** Yeah" like a couple in joint BDUs, flight suits, dress whites, or the like.

What is your idea of a perfect Sunday afternoon? submitted by A Few of My Favorite Things
The dog would let herself outside for a bathroom break in the morning, then she make Wookie & Co. coffee and not eat the bacon while preparing it. But in reality, she's not a morning dog. She'll wake when you do, lick your legs, realize you're just as effin' tired as her, so she'll return to one of her beds. Just as long as you know she gave a diplomatic appearance in the morning to look sociable.

What do you usually do for the 4th of July holiday? submitted by Anchor’s Away
Watch fireworks! In Oregon, they're illegal in Hometown (let's say it's a bit dry so fires are muy easy to launch). So we go to  them! In 2009, we spent the day camped out on the National Mall by the Lincoln Memorial for the greatest seats known to pauper. This year, we hear they're launching fireworks about a mile from our home - so we'll probably keep Sweet Pea indoors with a stuffed Kong to occupy her while we indulge in our massive patriotism on our back porch. Easy peasy.

If they could make an Olympic event JUST for you that you know you’d medal in, what would it be? submitted by Pants are Confusing
Having the most PowerBar wrappers on the floor of my car? Having a freckle that looks like Mickey Mouse's ears? No wait, I got it! I'm 5'11" (that's the 95% percentile right there!), a redhead (that's 4% of the population!), with AB blood (that's between 1-4% of  the population!

Obviously being a gangly redhead makes me a minority.

Tangent: Are you an rH factor guru? Help me out! I know I'm AB, but not + or -. My mom is A+ and my dad is I want to assume I'm AB+, but am not sure. Help?

What have you been doing to get yourself bathing suit ready for the summer? submitted by Not Just an Army Wife
You mean besides that whole running a half marathon a few weeks ago? ;) Just that. Running. I signed up for a 10K in a few weeks to keep the gears turning. The only downside to training is that the single sportsbra has yet to find friends to join the entourage. I ordered more from Bare Necessities, tried them on, and am still configuring my size with the new styles/brands. Let's just say this might take awhile - both in the time spent shipping and orchestrating an exchange. Boo for having a size 30 ribcage.

But that's the party here, people. Nothing much, other than Where did Friday come from? and July, really, here already? I joked with Mama Ging already that I should start working on my Christmas List, it'll be here soon enough. But I have to turn 28 first. Gulp.


  1. LOL. I love your explanation of part crazy/part badass. And to answer your rh question... from what I remember from HS biology, your parents could both be positive and you could be negative. Didn't you ever do the prick your finger, add the drops and see what type you are in science class?

  2. The ging doth not do needles.

    Also, for you to be negative would be majorly impressive. The positive is a dominant - and since both your parents are you *should* be. Though, just like the ging genes, it's possible.

  3. Indeed, needles are a form of El Diablo. And I concur, I SHOULD be +...but weirder things have happened. And my last draw wasn't for a determination, and naturally I'll avoid any future draws like a homophobic gay. ;)
