*My mom, sister and I have totally extended this Going To Chico metaphor, to our endless amusement.
"Hey my mom has the kids, you wanna Go To Chico tonight?"
"My girlfriend NEVER wants to Go To Chico anymore."
"We didn't Go To Chico, we stopped in Sacramento."
"I heard it was pretty scandalous. They went all the way to Redding."
Endless hours of amusement
*I can't find my camera. I'm fairly certain I last had it at home, which leads me to believe that it must be in a pocket or an interesting shelf or a Safe Place somewhere or other, but I've cleaned my apartment top to bottom today and come up with nothing.
I wouldn't normally worry too much, but without a regular peppering of photos, y'all might notice the glaring lack of substantive content here. Yikes.
Also, Gabriel is making strawberry stew for his Lego men right now, and he's dressed as a pirate, and this moment is going undocumented.
*I can't find my debit card either. I used it to buy gas yesterday, so Reason tells me that I just didn't put it back in my wallet, that it's floating around on its own somewhere, and again with the Safe Place Mistake. Could Safe Place Mistake be the name of a blog?
*And while we're listing Things I Cannot Find:
-My mending kit, which I last had in my hands sometime last week, when I took it away from Gabriel. I've been looking for it ever since, as I have two pairs of pants in need of button repair.
-My knitting needles, last seen God Knows When, but I have something like 25 pairs, so I can't quite figure how it's reasonably possible that they all just up and walked away. I've been half-heartedly searching for about a month now, but have yet to launch a full-scale Hunt.
All of these lost things are especially vexing as I have a one of those tiny apartments where everything has a home and if that thing should end up Out instead of Away, it's instantly apparent because there it is! On my couch! Or on the coffee table!
*Apropos of nothing, someone should start up a series about things to Avoid When Drinking Alone, such as Lifetime Original Movies, and Skype.
