Ultimate player in the house

Hung on the chandelier with care

Boy in Black has a very limited wardrobe, consisting almost entirely of black band t-shirts and a few pairs of black or grey zip-off pants, teamed sometimes with a black hoodie and often a black bandana. Most of his clothes will stay crumpled in the bottom of a duffle bag for the whole month he's home. But not his Ultimate Frisbee jerseys. He has two team jerseys, one black and one white, and he is always careful to hang them up in an appropriate place of honor. The shirts are the first thing I saw yesterday when I walked into the house.

Yes, it's good to have him home.

If that chandelier was in my house it would be a part-time clothes dryer.

I see a Christmas chain - who made that? Makes me smile.

FA: You and Boy in Black think alike ....

Cathy: My daughter and With-a-Why have been working on a Christmas chain. It's a tradition! (I come from a family BIG on traditions.)

Cathy said...

My guess is there may have been an elementary school teacher in your family somewhere :)

I was teaching sixth grade the year I was pregnant with my daughter ....

Is that all one cat?

jo(e) said...

Yes, she is a pretty large cat.

That is not a cat. That is a puddle of cattitude.

OMG, that cat....reminds me of boykitty (RIP). How much does she weigh (if she doesn't mind my intrusion)?

PS: you're my best friend for installing the blogger comment thingy that allows us ne'er do well typepad users to sign in!

PPB: Oh, I'm glad it's working!

I don't know how much the cat weighs. We have no scale in the house ....

Sarah Sometimes said...

what is the blogger comment thingy that PPB is talking about? I want to install it too!

jo(e) said...

Ianqui explains it here.

Oh hallelujah! The blogger comment thingy! I'm this close to leaving people links asking them to change. It has blocked me from leaving so many comments I'm leaving one here just to enjoy it.

Sarah, here's one link.

My cheapo chandelier installed in my cookie-cutter apartment also doubles as a clothes dryer. Loved the puddle of cattitude phrase.

Seems like a prefectly reasonable place to hang laundry. I imagine we would do the same if we had a chandelier. It would certainly be easier than having to move things from the shower rod.

I absolutely love the big cat on the table!

I know exactly how you feel, Our daughter is visiting us in our new home for the first time. We haven't seen her in a year and it is so wonderful I don't even mind the extra 4 hours we waited for her delayed plane or the rainy wet nasty drive home because she was in the car with us.

Enjoy Boy in Black.

I want to be a teenager again and live in your house, 'kay?

The puddle of cattitude is probably just big boned.
