A brief diary entry

I been a'travelin'.

The Mister went off to India. Then i went off to Cannon Beach, Oregon, with a girlfriend for a few days.

I got home Monday. The Mister got home Tuesday. I left Wednesday for Ohio, to help Em move home for the summer. (Egads! My little tiny bald newborn baby girl just finished her first year of college!)

We fly home tomorrow.

It will take a few days for my soul to catch up with me.

I think i'll amuse myself now by drawing stylized genitalia in the Gideons Bible.

I would like to find a gideon's bible with genitalia (stylized, no less) included. I think, though, I would actually have to open it to see...

Gina said...

That would totally make my vacation to find that bible!

Stucco said...

I like to phonetically read the strange foreign language passages in the back of the Gideon bibles. One of my favorite passages is "Ha ha, icky scalp".

Drinking helps.

Ah, it was only yesterday we heard that she's off to college, couldn't find her pants for her matriculation, possibly met someone, and bang, she has finished the first year?!

Where did the time go?!

When are you coming to Bend btw? With everything seems to happen at warp speed, man, you gotta be here yesterday! :)

I'd say I'm offended by your Bible drawings. But I'd bust up laughing. That makes me a bad Christian. Ah, hell, at least I have a funny bone... along with Jesus' funny boner.

Mrs. Chili said...

Now I'm going to be looking in every hotel room bible for your marks, Meno!

meno said...

holly, i suppose i would have to open it to draw them too...

gina, it would crack me up too, but only if it was done tastefully! :D

stucco, i have investigated that remedy thoroughly.

cheesy, you live near there? Next time!

sketcher, or (()) or (*) or (o) or (|) Whee. that was fun!

mother hen, that's what i was asking, what happened to the time?

andrea, I'd draw them in Christopher Dawkins books too, if he was presumptuous to leave them in my hotel room. I'm an equal opportunity defacer.

mrs. chili, you just never know when The Meno will strike!

rebecca said...

They grow up too fast if you ask me. Mine is 30 yet on most days I don't see her as a grown woman but as my baby. Does that ever go away I wonder? And, boy, does she take advantage of that when she's sick, let me tell ya!

furiousBall said...

he gets India and you get... Ohio?

meno said...

rebecca, when i am sick is the time i most wish i had a mom who knew how to mom.

furious, um, i think i got the better deal, but not by much.

Real Live Lesbian said...

You've just motivated me to start opening bibles! lol

Brad said...

Mister gets to go to India and you get Cannon Beach?

Don't get me wrong, I love the Haystack as much as the next fella, but I think you've got some 'due' comming to ya.

Dick said...

Did the Mister happen to bring you back one of those cute little $2500 cars they sell there? That would be a different coming home gift.

QT said...

OMG - best.idea.ever!!! How come I never thought of that?

heartinsanfrancisco said...

Let me know how that works out for you with the Gideon Bible.

You are brilliant!

meno said...

rll, there has to be SOME reason to open them.

brad, you've never been to India or you might not say that.

dick, also, no, only pictures of them.

qt, well now you can do it yourself!

hearts, you mean not everyone thinks like this? :)

luckyzmom said...

I didn't know you were an artist.

Schmoopie said...

Cannon Beach > India

Come to think of it...
Cannon Beach > almost everywhere else

You're my hero for decorating the bibles ;)

Nancy Dancehall said...

Sinner!!

You're my hero.

Dianne said...

heartinsanfrancisco said...
