Gone with the Wind

Big Daddy and I are currently trying to find a house in the nether-regions of East Tennessee.

We have alot of expectations, having lived in California, where the cost of living is so high that we’ve been relegated to a 2-bedroom apartment for the bulk of the time.

We want room to spread out, but we don’t want to pay a bundle. Not too much to ask, right?

Yesterday, while Googling houses, I found this Southern beaut.


I sent it to Big Daddy (a picture via email, not the house), and this is the exchange that followed:

BD:  This one kinda looks like Terra.

Me:  Tara? Yes, it does.
(I can’t help it. I’m an English teacher! Big Daddy loves me anyway.)

BD:  As God is my witness, I will never go hungry again…..
(and so it begins…)

Me: I don’t know nuthin’ ‘bout birthin’ no babies!

BD: Let me get you the cake Ms. Scarlet…

Me: Frankly, my dear,…
Oh, nevermind.

BD:  You win… :0
This is not a competition though.
(He always says that when he’s losing. I love him anyway.)

WARNING: Explicit content forthcoming. Stop reading now if you have delicate sensibilities.

Me: That’s what’s wrong with you. You should be kissed and often, and by someone who knows how.

BD: You are right!
(I don’t think this was in GWTW, but I could be wrong. I’m thinking BD got carried away.)

So, I’ve made a decision. I’ve decided to live life, from now on, using a series of quotes from GWTW.

This should last only a few hours or so, so bear with me.
