YO! Party peoples!
Yes. I know. It's been like DECADES since I wrote a post up in here.
Frankly you guys? It's Summer Reading. And like, this is epic level of busy at the LIBERRY.
Like all the kids have like 10 thousand zillion million books that they have to read right? So they're all up in here like OMG I NEED REBECCA AND ALSO THE COLOR OF WATER AND ALSO THE RISE OF THEODORE ROOSEVELT.
And like down in the children's department? You guys? ONE HUNDRED BABIES in the last storytime.
It's like 300? Because like, they are ALSO all in diapers...and capes. And have CGI abs?
But seriously, I imagine that facing 100 babies is much like facing 300 Spartans.
Anyway...so it's been uber busy and there's been a shit ton of shitty shit happening.
But I know, enough excuses, get funny already.
First things first. I think in terms of the RENAMING, I'm going to go ahead and give you 3 to vote on:
The third, actually directly relates to my story for the day.
NotLurrrver17 just got back from an Alaskan cruise. Yes, I am deeply envious. Before he departed on said cruise I demanded he return with a Puffin. Because Puffins are AMAZING and hands down my favorite bird. In fact? In elementary school I crafted a Puffin out of styrofoam balls, felt and feathers.
He was AMAZING.
So, I go over to NotLurrrver17's house yesterday to see pictures of Alaskan Cruise On Which I Did Not Go and to retrieve my Puffin, Bruno, from his former master.
We sit down to dinner with LurrrverMom. A dinner of hamburgers (veggie burger for yours truly).
And NotLurrrver17 prepares his sandwich....bun, big pile of lettuce, mustard...and a giant dill pickle sliced in half because SOMEBODY can't deal with sweet relish.
So we sit down, and NotLurrrver17 is regaling us with hilarious stories as per usual...and he gets down to like...maybe two bites worth of his hamburger, when he looks, with bewilderment at said hamburger...
NotLurrrver17: (lifts up bun) Where did the burger go? That's so weird.
NotLurrrver17: I DIDN'T PUT A BURGER ON THIS HAMBURGER!
So, NotLurrrver17 has eaten nearly his entire "Hamburger" sans Hamburger. I seriously? Laughed SO FREAKING HARD I almost barfed.
Because on top of the ridiculousness of that? His face upon realizing this travesty was just about the most priceless thing in the world.
I'm kind of laughing hysterically again RIGHT NOW.
So, right. Puffins.
NotLurrrver17, being the prince of perfect that he is, TOTALLY brought me back all sorts of awesome Puffinalia...including Bruno who is snuggle-tastic.
I would call bullshit on the fact that he did not steal me an ACTUAL Puffin...except that he didn't SEE any and also because he did stand up on the boat and that takes some real chutzpa...maybe even more chutzpa than puffin thievery.
