Derwood didn’t work last weekend. OK, he worked for a couple of hours on Saturday but that’s not much at all for him. Derwood works more than anyone I know. As luck would have it, he loves his job and I love him making money so it’s all good. We’re perfect for each other.
We had such a good weekend. We worked in the yard and went to garage sales.
We ate at a sort of ridiculously pretentious restaurant called Paulee in Dundee in the Willamette Valley wine country. It was a white linen kind of place and I was dressed for garage sales but so what, it keeps the paparazzi away. I had a duck burger and duck frites. Meh. It was a friendly place but not worth the money at all. Note to self: Remember that you don’t like brioche and get on with your life.
We played golf with my friend Lisa. We went to WalMart and bought a Sawzall. I love sawing things down. Or watching Derwood do it….lumberjacks are sexy.
We went shopping and got me some new spring clothes so I can stop stomping around and whimpering about how fat I am and I have no clothes and trying on six different outfits every morning before work.
And most importantly we laughed. Derwood makes me laugh so hard my stomach hurts and that happens several times a day. We really do have the best time together. I should marry him. (By the by, invites go out on Monday. Wahooo!)
I also have other boyfriends that I want you all to know about.
The Boyfriends I’ve Been with for Awhile
Harper Faulkner — Harper is such an entertaining writer. He is a writer who knows the craft. He is funny as all hell, has a darling doggie, and encouraged me when I first started this blog. I never forget how he reached out to me early on and put me on his blog roll. Thanks HF!
Le Clown – Well, who doesn’t know about LeClown? For pete’s sake he has his own entry in the Urban Dictionary. LeClown/L’Eric is talented and loving man who has forged a blogging presence that few can claim. And he is balls out all the time. I wish he’d put pants on but he’s a Canadian and that’s how they blog there.
Bring Me the Head of David Dixon– he is a man of few words but I’ve always liked the strong silent type. And he made this just for me:
The Boyfriends I’m Comfortable With (like we could sleep in the same bed and just talk and watch Caddyshack)
Roam About Mike — Mike is so fantastic. He is a travel writer and humor writer. I love the stories about his Roam About girlfriend and his Roam About Parents. He is a delight. And he sent me this photo of him when he was a model. I had a shower curtain made out of it.
Justin the Eccentric Dirtbag — I love Justin, how could I not? He’s hot. And he’s a very
disgusting fun writer and clearly well-read but trying to hide it. He taught me the phrase “Anne Frankly”….. what? I think it’s funny, JUSTIN and I think it’s funny!
Andrew at Shut Up Dad – Andrew is like my younger brother. Andrew is like my younger brother if my mom had had me at 15 and then wound up falling in love in her 30s and having another kid. Andrew is like my younger brother if I were hold enough to be his mother, which I am. Andrew has a how-to blog and he is quite ingenious…he has many great tips on networking, wolf art, and personal defense.
My Newest Boyfriends
Don of All Trades – Don is fairly new to the blogging game. He’s just turned 40 and I’m thinking could be the male version of me if I were a cop or an attorney (I’m not sure what he does) and I drank too much beer instead of too much wine. Go read him! He should have tons of followers because he is fart out loud funny and I have told him as much.
Nic at Key Changes — I think I have already crowed about Nic but I’m doing it again because he is one of my most favorite blogger boyfriends and I wish he wrote more often. Nic is like an American gay male Bridget Jones. I love him! And you will, too. Go read him. Did I mention that the Patriots didn’t even make it into the Super Bowl this year? No? Well I was just thinking about that.
