Iron Man came to dinner tonight. Have you ever cooked for a superhero? I've never experienced culinary stress of this magnitude before, he gave it a thumbs up. Maybe next time I'll get two thumbs up. Here's a few pointers for you just in case a superhero should show up for dinner. First, thank superhero for choosing your home. After all, the world is his oyster when it comes to rescuing and protecting. You'd be a fool to deny him a spot at your table. Who's going to stomp on ants on the front porch and scare off small meddling... Continue reading

Dear Mom, I had to cut a tomato yesterday. You would have been disappointed at the mess I made of it. Halfway through I remembered it wasn't for burgers but for nachos. Poor tomato, it was chuncky and mushy. Kinda like my potatoes, it was rough. I'm afraid I've brought shame to your name. I'm sorry. I promised everyone involved that I wouldn't try that again, until of course, you can give me a lesson on cutting/slicing/dicing tomatoes. Hurry home so you can have your kitchen back and I can go back to sipping iced water and picking my toe... Continue reading

The Star. Unfortunately we don't find the star on too many trees today. We have seven trees in our home and not one has a star on top. My mom's choice of topper for our family tree growing up was a star. A blue one. In fact it's the only one I remember ever seeing on our tree. I wonder what happened that that little blue star. Anywho, I wondered as I prepared for todays ADVENTure if the Punks would register the star with Christmas. I mean Punkgirl is only 9 and Punkboy is just barely 5. There's still alot...

We at Buses and Poems have compiled a Summer Bucket List for 2010. You know, things we want to do before the summer is over. We just haven't decided if by "summer" we mean, before school starts, or the calender end of summer. Either way, we're going to enjoy the summer with alot of good stuff. We can scratch off, playing in the sprinklers. Simple but fun. Punkboy always enjoys a good "tush" washing, and doesn't mind if the neighbors are watching. Our yellow grass is really annoying me, but at least it's mine. I wonder how that feels, if... Continue reading
