The Fumes, The Fumes

Sorry I have been away, my dear friends, but since my father is soon to return from England, my mother and I have turned our home upside down, in order to have the home spiffy.

The painters have been here since Monday, to do the living room, computer room, and bedrooms.

Today, we are having our rugs steam cleaned.

They're still here, so I've been going to the university computer labs whenever possible -- only it's not been possible of late.

I have a backlog of posts in mind, half-composed for you, in my noggin already:

  • The Spy Who Rocked Me (about that 007 rock found in Moscow by Russian Intelligence)


  • The Harper win in Canada (yay)


  • The Cuban-American professors, a husband-and-wife team from Florida International University, who were picked up by Homeland Security as alleged spies (bet you didn't hear that on MSM did you? Hmm, wonder why)


  • More cinemahouse magic (Parisian Muvico in Palm Beach, ooh-lala)


  • A Trip to the Biltmore Hotel (best pool in Miami, pace Venetian Pool)


  • And so many more!

    Please hang in there, me dears -- that includes email.

    I shall return by Friday at the very latest.

    Until then, I'll check back for replies, in case you want to suggest post-ideas!

    UPDATE: Take note for your own blogs, that Blogger will be down at 4:00 PM PST.

    • Nary an idea for you, Madam. I did see a small article about the Profs in the Tampa Trib. It was quite underwhelming.

      Awaiting your posts with mouth-watering expectancy.

      :D

    • I did follow the Canadian elections via a few of the blogs, such as Dust My Broom and Small Dead Animals. Then I hopped through the blogs on election night: Captain's Quarters, etc.

      I wonder how many online have grown interested in thier neighbors like this? The Net gives us the ability to learn while our MSM inhibits us from learning.

      Wish Harper had won bigger.

    • Don't forget, we want to hear how Schmoopsie liked the Dog Water.

      But, if you really lurve your pet, you'll splurge for Pup Cups. They seem hard to find in stores, but an old MSNBC report said you could get a 48-pack (of 4 oz. cups) at Costco for $34.99.

      That's .182 per ounce, or $23.32 a gallon - at warehouse club pricing. Dog Water is a relative bargain!

      Please do a double-blind taste test and let us know which is to be preferred.

    • Saw the Associated Press story about the professors back on the 9th in several places...zzzz

      Looking forward to the rest

      The smallest of small "oh by the by"s, wasn't it, Benning?

      I mean, SPIES! At Universities! Working for Castro! Allegedly!

      This is the stuff of John Grisham, not some piddly byline on page 18.

      Awaiting your posts with mouth-watering expectancy.

      Heh. Heh.

      Your request has suddenly taken an evil, but apposite turn.

      Cheers,

    • I did follow the Canadian elections via a few of the blogs, such as Dust My Broom and Small Dead Animals.

      Oh I don't know those! And this also reminds me that I really should've congratulated Joel Johanssen of "Proudtobecanadian.ca" for the win.

      I'll email him...

      Then I hopped through the blogs on election night: Captain's Quarters, etc.

      Oh cool, didn't know the Cap'n coverage was a good'n.

      I wonder how many online have grown interested in thier neighbors like this?

      I daresay now they will be more. :)

      With me, of course, since I lived there, and Renato is so close to me, I have a vested interest.

      I feel every bit an honourary Canadian, as I do an honourary Cubiche.

      The Net gives us the ability to learn while our MSM inhibits us from learning.

      So true, Benning. Well said.

      Wish Harper had won bigger.

      Not sure who they can form a pragmatic alliance with, considering, as I observed to Renato on election night, there is but one right-leaning Party.

      The three other ones, Bloc Quebecquois, NDP, the Libs, and Greens are all lefties...

      Cheers,
      Victoria

      Who cares about the Hard Rock Moscow! It's Dog Water, or bust. ;)

      But, if you really lurve your pet, you'll splurge for Pup Cups. They seem hard to find in stores, but an old MSNBC report said you could get a 48-pack (of 4 oz. cups) at Costco for $34.99.

      Ooh, I was never gainfully employed, so I could never get a Costco card, but now I've been told, anyone can have one.

      I may check it out. ;)

      That's .182 per ounce, or $23.32 a gallon - at warehouse club pricing. Dog Water is a relative bargain!

      Holy smokes...

      Dog Water was chosen 3 out of 5 times by discerning mammals.

      Come on, it's a potboiler I tells ya!

      Looking forward to the rest

      I shall be blogging more normally this weekend.

      I am, at this moment, awaiting the call to pick up dad at the airport.

      We have no idea when he comes in, since he changed flights...

      Cheers,
      Victoria
