Is This My Beautiful Life?

A not atypical Saturday around Snag Manor.

Get up in the morning and unsuccessfully fend off a teenager's angst. Pray for death.

Go to library and dry cleaner with the youngest. Tell him to shut the hell up the entire time.

Go to grocery and liquor store alone. Best part of day.

Add songs to the iPod. Tell oldest to shut the hell up when he comments on music selection.

Prepare marinade for Yucatecan Grilled Pork. Cook said meal. Serve said meal to family and friends.

Go out front and play catch with kids. Cringe when next door neighbor comes out to watch and ball hits his car. Go inside and make stiff drink.

Build fire in back yard. Step in dog crap. Swear and take off shoes.

Watch movie with kids and neighbors. Carry youngest upstairs to bed.

Write blog entry. Edit same.

Here is my soundtrack:

Synthetic Symphony - Hopewell
Luck Be A Lady - Frank Sinatra
Hold Your Head Up - Argent
Memories Of East Texas - Michelle Shocked
Gimme Shelter - The Rolling Stones
Cannonball - The Breeders
I Love the Rain - The Real Tuesday Weld
Positively 4th Street - Bob Dylan
Oh Very Young - Cat Stevens
Big Time - Peter Gabriel
Bang Bang, My Baby Shot Me Down - Terry Reid

I must admit, I had no idea what to expect from that recipe link. It was until I saw Rick Bayless pop up that I realized it was REAL!

Oops, that should have said, "it WASN'T until I saw..."

With a song list like that, no wonder Katie shit on the lawn and a snaglet complained.

That family has taste!

I like to think of it as an eclectic list.

That Michelle Shocked tune is great, and Cannonball rocks, but Argent??

That's where I would have pooped on your lawn.
