I took a Pol and named him my husbandy!

-Day 106-
It is not a lack of love, but a lack of friendship that makes unhappy marriages.- Friedrich Nietzsche


So… today is the anniversary of the day Andy and I committed ourselves to this loony existence. You'll be surprised to learn we did so willingly, sober and on purpose!

We normally don’t celebrate it because our love for each other is a daily celebration filled with loud expletives, vase throwing, and yes, sometimes even dog feces.

To my surprise, my knight in electrical armor, asked me if I wanted to go out to a fancy schmancy dinner. I told him it hurt my nose hairs to spend money on expensive food so I suggested the following places:


KFC: Meal for 2- $10 + tax

If we order the 3pc (Thigh, Leg, Breast) extra biscuit (giving us a total of 2), 2 sides which would be potato wedges for me mashed for him and we share a soda. Extra Crispy please!


Wendy’s Meal for 2- $7 + tax
2-$1 bacon burgers
2-$1 fries
2-$1 frostys
1-$1 bowl of chili

Plus some free heartburn.


For more expensive fares:


Russell’s Meal for 2- $20 + tax
1- BBQ Pork sandwich w/fries
1- BBQ Beef sandwich w/fries
2- beers
This one sounds good cuz of the booze.


Baker’s Square Meal for 2- $23 + tax AND TIP!!
1- Chicken Pita w/fries
1- Hamburger w/fires
1- Piece of pie a-la-mode (shared)
My first choice is Russell's but one of the times we went, they didn't have beer and I nearly cried...

I think we’ll probably go with Baker’s Square since it’s the more ELEGANT of the bunch and that is where we went the very day we walked into the abyss SEVEN years ago! Full circle people!
Happy Anniversary Babe!
I love you as much today, as the first time we shared that guacamole at Mateo's. Even though you ate most of it after claiming you didn't even like guacamole. I should have known my life would lead me to a path of Nacho hogging!
I think I'll keep him anyway since he woke up in the middle of the night after I had screamed out because I had bent my (already broken) fingernail back and felt pain only women who have had babies know about.
He was all concern "Bee! Are you okay??" I told him what happened then he asked, "Do you need me to bring you anything??"

How cute was that?
Granted, he was probably dreaming (he's a sleep talker as we know) I had squeezed an eyeball out of my head and didn't want me to bleed on the bed, but still.

My dress cost $45 ON SALE!
Also, as your gift to me, please click on Humor-Blogs.

If you think Andy is a saint for putting up with me for so many years, I've known him for 13 years, please say so in the comments.


  1. At KFC you can get a full meal in one bowl.


  2. My God I was FIRST!!!!!!


  3. A milestone indeed, rather than a millstone ;-)

    Well done.

    Have you seen "The Seven Year Itch?" I think the moral of that one is don't go on holiday and leave your husband in a flat with Marilyn Monroe living upstairs.

    Enjoy your night out.

  4. Happy Anniversary!
    This is the kind of anniversary post that I like to see. It was real, honest, funny, all laced with love. Wonderful.

    And I would go to the place with the beer. Beer makes everything better.

  5. Dear Bee
    Why did you plan a night out on a Wednesday !!!
    You know I always come over on Wednesday's.
    Hey I like food too, can I tag along?
    Happy Anniversary

  6. andy is one lucky dude.

    me and the mr. were married in vegas by elvis. my mom cried. and not exactly tears of joy.

  7. Saint Andy doesn't have the right ring to it

    so I'll just wish you a happy anniversary

  8. how on earth does a BBQ joint run out of beer??!!....should be laws against such shit

  9. Happy Anniversary, you guys are a perfect match. It's great when your spouse gets you, and (Saint) Andy obviously does.

    Enjoy your night out and I agree beer does make everything better.

  10. a word of advice: if you are hungry and want to eat don't look very closely at the food. If you feel a crunch and it's not a crunchy thing, swallow immediately--you don't want to know

  11. Poke:
    Weird thing about Andy, he doesn't like his food to touch each other. He will never go for the bowl thing! I, on the other hand like to mush everything together and save energy.

    Every time I see that movie I want to kill the guy!

    And. What night out? It shouldn't take more than an hour, hour and a half tops.

    A girl after my own heart! Beer it is!

    Sorry brother but I couldn't get the the Earth to stop doing it's thing so that the 16th could land on a Thursday.

    But I bet she loves him now!

    JEAN KNEE X 2:
    First, thank you!

    I was debating if I should leave when they told me but I decided to stay and be mad about it! ;op

    Thank you!
    Yup, he gets me. That worries me too since I can no longer get a way with some of my mutterings!

    JEAN KNEE!! ::blech::

  12. Happy Anniversary!
    I hope you at least let him go Biggie on the fries. It is a special occasion!

  13. How do you think Jared lost all that weight?

  14. Happy Anniversary you two love birds!

  15. Congratulations ... sent from my cool HTC Touch


  16. Think he's a saint? I know it! Just kidding, of course.

    Happiest of happy days to you both! I would go to Baker's Square all day long!

  17. Your marriage sounds a bit like mine, but my wedding dress cost a whole $10 more.

    That makes me $10 classier than you.

  18. Anniversary Stuff:

    The Dance: In dancing, the women usually know the steps and the men know the holds.

    Marriage: Having someone to witness your life.

    Spouse: someone who'll stand by you through all the trouble you wouldn't have had if you'd stayed single. ~Author Unknown

    A wedding anniversary is the celebration of love, trust, partnership, tolerance and tenacity. The order varies for any given year. ~Paul Sweeney

    Love is the thing that enables a woman to sing while she mops up the floor after her husband has walked across it in his barn boots. ~Hoosier Farmer

    The bonds of matrimony are like any other bonds - they mature slowly. ~Peter De Vries

    A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person. ~Mignon McLaughlin

    We are all a little weird and life's a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love. ~Author Unknown

    Love does not consist of gazing at each other, but in looking together in the same direction. ~Antoine de Saint-Exupery

    And finally ~ Kevin Bacon's advice on a long and successful relationship:
    Keep the fights clean and the sex dirty!

  19. I'm way late, but I'm going to assume that, a day later, you're all still in love. I hope so, anyway, or else this comment is gonna be hella uncomfortable.

    I got engaged over Subway sandwiches. Swoon!! We celebrated our wedding day with Cold Cut Combos because we're nostalgic like that.

    Happy anniversary!!

  20. Happy Anniversary!!

    Papi and I went on our first date to Pancho's Mexican Buffet.

    The romance never ends....neither do the spicy chalupa farts.

  21. I'm a little worried about Poke.

    I think he went into orgasmic exclamation shock.

  22. Happy A.nni.ver.sary
    Happy A.nni.ver.sary
    Happy A.nni.ver.sary
    Haaaaaaaaappy AnniversAry!!!

    Anniversaries always remind me of the Flinstones episode in which Fred and Wilma celebrate their anniversay-I think.....Do you know what I'm talking about?

    Anyway, happy anniversary and I hope you have many, many, many, many, many more....

  23. How could I forget!?
    What kind of friend/almost a sister am I!?

    Since this is about you and not me, I wish you a Happy Anniversary. May the next 80 years be filled with romance, love and all kinds of good stuff.
    See? I can be serious.

  24. Damon:
    Thanks! :o)
    Biggie it is!

    You can have your hair back! ::blech::

    Thanks! Love does hurt!

    Thanks and congrats but you should have switched to AT&T come over on Sunday!!!

    Momo Fali:
    Thanks! His saintship has a wee little cold right now. Nuff said.

    Hmmm... how much were your shoes? Mine were the 11.99 special from payless.

    ALL TRUE! Thanks!

    Thanks! Not too late, we're still happy-ish! ;op

    And um... I always make a man feel orgasmic, it's a curse really.

    Crazy Ez:
    Yeah, I got the live version from Marie. :o)
    I was going to post it but I couldn't find it on youtube.

    80 years? Yikes! Hopefully I'll have an assitant to help me with my flabby skin! ;op

  25. I've loved lots of men but I've only liked one of them. Love that Nietzsche quote.

    I think you both sound adorable together.


Ask me no questions and I’ll tell you no lies.
