IOW-et


Dear Lord, these poor people in Iowa. New England is blissfully weather-boring. No tornadoes (those poor boy scouts!) no earthquakes, only the occasional hurricane or blizzard, each of which comes with ample warning, no major wildfires. So our gas costs $4.50 a gallon and a decent house costs $500K. I'm dry, not on fire, not on my way to Oz and not crushed inside a crevasse in the earth. I call that lucky.

Hey Kim,

According to this latest figure looks like gas just went down 9 cents in CT!

Quick! Bust open the champagne and drink up before they decide to jack them up again!!

Hey! Maybe you could throw a party to celebrate the occasion!?? (Not trying to be partial or anything but how about, let's say...hummm....I know...how about a pool party...and ahem...maybe you could invite Pool Boy?)

LOL!!! At these gas prices we'll be sipping generic ginger ale! Perhaps Rico Suave will bring some rum?

Shhhhh Kim...can we keep this pool party under wraps??

I mean, since Pool Boy (Rico) isn't 100% European (by the sound of his first name) I don’t think Amanda (who lives in Europe) and Petra (who’s partial to British accents) will mind missing out on all the frolicking.

And Manic Mom? Well, she’s busy with the book contest and probably won’t have time to follow up on Pool Boy.

So that just leaves me and you. (Assuming of course that your comment on Michelle’s blog inviting everyone to come take a peek at Pool Boy doesn’t generate another round of “who’s got dibs”)

Amanda is in fact English living in Scotland and could be partial to something a little exotic...

BYOPB. That's all I'm saying. May we end up with a veritable United Nations....
