Only one bottle of wine? Such control!

Our LOTR-athon is continuing. One guest. Mass quantities of Lego on the floor.

That dog! You'd miss him if he really did run away.

I was going to make the same flabbergasted comment that I see smalltownmom did. That's your problem, you know. Right there.

The Matron didn't specify (like she did for the DQ items), but I'm hoping the wine was for her?

I'm with everyone else. I drank 3 bottles just reading about your travails. You need more sustenance to survive all that, particularly the episode where Michael Jackson plays a large, normal man.

And I heard that familiar theme song in the background the 2 or 3 times I called my boy to see if he was ready to be pulled outa there... aren't you tired of it (the song)?

I'm with everyone else...one bottle of wine just doesn't seem like quite enough!

Wow! You spelled diarrhea, first shot? I am impressed. I totally cut-and-pasted.
