Things That Make Me Sad (and Happy)

Sad Things:
  1. I lost my wedding ring.  It's somewhere at the allotment, but who knows where.  I put it in my pocket for safekeeping (since we never got it resized) but it fell out sometime while I was crawling about in the dirt.
  2. Bus companions.  Now that we have no car, we're bus riders.  Saturday night as we came home on the bus we were accompanied by hordes of 14-year-olds.  Short short skirts and high high heels.  They looked so ridiculous stumbling down the bus aisle, and, sadly, I can only imagine (from past encounters) that they were on their way downtown to find someone to buy them liquor before wandering around tipsy in the city center.
  3. Scottish potlucks.  I've mentioned it before and I'll mention it again.  Potlucks in this country are sad affairs.  We attended one yesterday afternoon.  These were the offerings: donuts, pretzels, white bread, a bowl of iceberg lettuce, packaged chocolate rolls, packaged cookies, packaged meat pies, crisps.  There was also one homemade offering.  I have no idea what it was.  It was gray and creamy and studded with peas.

And a Happy Thing:

We brought home rhubarb from the allotment yesterday and Steve made delicioso crumble out of it.  DeliciOso.  We probably should have taken it to the potluck today.

Very sad indeed--all 3 of them. Maybe it will be like that one short story where the woman lost her ring in a garden and then they found it in a potato later on....

The potluck is very sad. And gross. Push that allotment to the limit!

Ldsjaneite--Let's hope so!

Eliana--It is gross. We went to a potluck the next day where there were two homemade sweets. It was sad how excited that made us.

Can't be any worse than YSA potlucks.
