I just used a double-negative and can't just let it be there and know that my intelligent (and, of course, fabulous) readers will presume it's deliberate. I have to directly state that it's deliberate. I don't really use double-negatives! I don't! I'm just trying to be witty. And I'm stereotyping. Because those who put wine in their kids' lunchboxes likely aren't strangers to CPS... and double-negatives. Oh, c'mon---you know it's true. Maybe not wine, though... more like malt liquor? Hell, I don't know. I guess I need to work on my stereotyping. There's one for the to-do list. Send... overdue... holiday... gift... thank-you... notes. Compile... baby... albums. Work... on... sterotyping. Take... Volvo... for... oil... change.
This is for your lunchbox, dahling. From STACKED Wines: Single servings of vino, prepackaged in sealed plastic glasses.
Five stars. This screams summertime croquet match in the park! Don't give me no flack for loving croquet, either. Intentional double-negative.

My sister Kelly is visiting. That means lots of bitching and drinking. Bring it!
Dawn: Hilltop mass ascension viewing from toasty car.
8:30 a.m.: Crepes and mimosas.
Noon: Nap with Pearl Mae Brown.
I'd have to say it was a good day.
Let's take a break from babies and enjoy a nice, stiff shot of Ms. Betty Butterfield. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wpTRwTsOxW8&feature=g-vrec
The twins arrived at 37 weeks on August 7 via c-section. They're perfect sweeties. We're head-over-heels in love! Séamus "Shea" Daniel Brown arrived at 8:25 a.m. Stats: 6 lbs, 4.5 oz, 19". Dark Irish, just like Dad.
Pearl Mae Brown arrived at 8:26 a.m. Stats: 5 lbs, 9 oz., 18.5". This little blondie looks suspiciously like Mom.
Everything went incredibly well. The babes are so healthy that they didn't have to spend a second in the NICU (quite common for twins). Now, we're home and happy. Life is incredibly good.
Welcome, Brownies. It's going to be a wonderful ride.
... until I can treat myself to this majestic splendor: the new Stoli Salted Karamel, a premium vodka described in its press release as "the perfect balance of sweet and savory - golden brown caramel delicately enhanced with salt."
Oh my. Oh my. Ohhhhh myyyyy.
I seriously just stopped typing for a good few minutes and did some daydreaming about all the different concoctions I can whip up with this new Stoli offering.
See you soon, vodka.
A fine time was had by all at the annual Drag Queen Bingo Brunch at Scalo, a benefit for New Mexico AIDS Services.
