afternoon of the living dead

Urban Blonde finally made the trek over to my house for coffee this afternoon. Not only did she grace my house with her fabulous presence and provide witty banter, she brought gifts and petted my cat and complimented my quirky decor and everything.

I know how jealous you all are right now.

The only dark stain upon an otherwise perfect afternoon was that I cleaned all the bathrooms and then she didn't even pee. Ungrateful wench.

When are you coming to visit?

I don't know her, but tell us...is she a real blonde? Furthermore, is she really urban?

Bridget Jones said...

Man sounds like a good time. How much wine was consumed? Couldn't have been much if no peeing took place!

AM on my way over right now.

Dr. Monkey Von Monkerstein said...

We'll drop by next time we're in the neighborhood.

Karen said...

When I eventually come down to visit you and Heather (and laugh at the rest of Cowtown...don't worry, it's really to hide the jealousy), I'll make sure to wee not once but twice in your sparklingly clean toilets.

I'll be right over ;O)

Barbara Bruederlin said...

I didn't check, Beckeye, but she certainly appears to be blonde. And she has a urban heart, trapped in the suburbs.

Wine was brought as a gift, but not consumed, Bridget, which may indeed account for the lack of peeing. However, there was a consider quantity of coffee quaffed, so you would think that the diuretics would have kicked in from that.

I'll make sure the bathrooms are clean, Dr M!

You'll need to after the three hour drive, Karen. My porcelain awaits your blessing.

Good timing, Mel, because the bathrooms are still clean.

Oh be careful Zombie. I'm warning you, I have a mitt-full of airmiles points and I'm not afraid to use them!

Possibly soon...there are a couple of jobs I'm applying for in Alberta, near Calgary...kind of. Hey, if we're in the same province that's better proximity. Look out!

So.... Just what happens when two bloggers get together? Did you discuss fonts?

Even better... Did she leave comments?

Maybe she was afraid that she would have to use word verification to use the facilities.
(Hence no peeing)

Sounds like fun though.


Will said...

It is just too far a walk for me to make right now :(

How fun! I'd visit you in a heartbeat if I could!

And, rest assured, peeing is the first thing I have to do when I arrive anywhere.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Sure, you talk a good game, Gifted, but I will pay attention when you've cashed in those air miles and I see you standing here on my doorstep.

You KNOW I've got my fingers crossed that you take one of those Alberta jobs, Al. We may not have any bodies of water to speak of, but there is a very nice manmade lake in our neighbourhood in which you are invited to dangle your toes into whenever you need to.

We spent the whole time talking about you, Sean! And we have decided that you use the best fonts.
I guess I didn't force enough coffee down her throat. That, and the fact that I had to boot her out of the house to go get the RO. Poor woman didn't have a chance to use the facilities.

I would recommend a fast train, Will, or you are going to end up going through several pairs of trainers.

hahaha! Me too, Justrun! Doesn't matter if the trip was 5 minutes or 5 hours.


Everyone should be jealous!!

I was privy to see every nook and cranny in the Zombie paradise and let me tell you it is as cool and interesting and thought provoking as Ms. Zombie herself. My word for it is not quirky but funky. As a houseophile I love a house that truly represents the personalities that live in it. I was not disappointed at Zombie headquarters.

Once inside I was introduced to her cat, who greeted me with affection and then promptly ignored me. I was touched.

But let me tell you I was most impressed with the spotless nature of her entire home (not a coughed up hairball in sight no matter what she has written in the past) something I myself have never been quite able to achieve. I came home and looked at my cluttered abode with a jaded eye and a resolve to at least get some rooms accessible to humans if not Zombies.

She has incredible art, some of it done by a very talented and precocious RO and a very comfortable chair by a large window that I was privy to sit on. I was informed it was "the" blogging chair and I must say I too was inspired. No wonder she is so prolific.

Delicious decaf coffee, pecan brittle, luscious red grapes.... oh yes I was indeed treated.

And now to clarify some points:

1. Yes beckeye I am a real blonde although you'll have to take my word for it or contact the SO.

2. And yes I'm really urban. Even years of living in the burbs hasn't erased my Urban core, I shall return there once the offspring have sprung.

3. I have a bladder like a camel.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Aww shucks, you are too sweet, Urban Blonde, you didn't even mention the piles of junk in the basement. And you will be delighted to know that once again there are coughed up hairballs readily visible in the house, as they should be.

I am jealous of your camel bladder. I have the bladder of a tree frog.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Well that's what I thought too, Kelly.
