This week I tried and failed to write several posts. My readership stats have spiked since last Sunday. I feel like I have a target on my back. Does that make me sound paranoid? If yes, please be assured that it's just a mild, temporary case that will abate when you are no longer all out to get me. Or when my new silent, Haligonian readers move on. But in the short term, the fear that someone is going to willfully mis-interpret my humour for their own ends is crimping my creative impulses.
Rather than let my blog go dark, I'm posting photos.
Mr Wrath and the Wrathlets were skiing yesterday. I don't ski, but I do fret. I'm great at fretting. For the sake of my sanity, and their fun, I stayed at home. Which gave me the chance to tackle this project for the guest room:
I'm really grateful to the Baroness Emma Willer. When I whinged on Twitter that the shipping fees for this Royal wedding commemorative tea towel from Emma Bridgewater were astronomical, Emma came to my rescue. She and her lovely mother-in-law graciously shuttled this across the Atlantic Ocean, then sent it all the way up here to the wild Canadian hinterlands.
As an aside, it's much more fun to shop at UK online shops. Instead of Mrs, Mr, Miss, or Ms, you can have assume the title of a Baroness, Dame, Lord, Master, The Countess, The Duchess of, The Duke of, The Earl of, and more. My favourite is "Contessa." If I can't live in a Regency Era novel, I should at least be able to have my correspondence delivered in the style of those heroines.
In completely un-Contessa like fashion, I picked up some new glasses at the thrift store:
Klaxon and Zarf hate these glasses. Firstly, they have no association with any of these characters. They keep calling him Donald McRonald and want to know what species is Grimace. Secondly, Klaxon says he hates how they stare at him while he eats his dinner. "They're creepy. They LITERALLY have eyes and make me uncomfortable." I'm tempted to line them up on his bedside table tonight after the falls asleep. Mr Wrath won't let me.
HEY! Look at that. I wrote a whole post.
