We Might Be Nhüts

 Colin: Yeah, so, if you go outside tonight, in the yard, for any reason.... there is a weird high pitched squeaking noise, and I don't know what it is.

Me: Aliens.

Colin: Aliens, eh?

Me: Yup, totally.

Colin: Well it sounds like the alien is up in trees, or on the roof.

Me: Duh. Alien squirrel.

Colin: Yeah? An alien squirrel?

Me: Yup, from the planet Nut.

Colin: Did you just say "alien squirrel from planet nut"? Like "N" "U" "T"?

Me: No, actually it's Planet "N" "H" "Ü" "T" with the lil' umlat over the "u".

Colin: *laughing hard*

Me: Alien squirrels enjoy proper grammatical etiquette, don't hate.

Colin: Oh, I'm not hatin'... *still laughing*, kinda lovin' this.

Me: Know what else you kinda love?

Colin: What's that?

Me: Me, as your housemate of forever. Admit it, you kinda love me and my constant proof of why I don't need to do drugs.

Colin: Yeah. I don't need to "admit" that, it's self-evident.

Me: I know.
(*here's where I go back to laying on the floor next to the furry diva beast singing ♫♪♫♪♫"On top of spaghettiiii.... all covered with cheeeeee..... I lost my pooooor meatballlll..... when somebody sneeeeeeeezed...."♫♪♪♪♫♫*)

************ and THAT, my friends, is more of the why/how Colin & I have been living with each other longer than any relationship we've been in... we "get" each other. Rare, very rare.


  1. The umlaut was a very funny touch. Is there anything more important in a relationship than making each other laugh? But seriously, were there alien squirrels? I don't want no alien squirrels in my tree. Tell me those weren't alien squirrels! Ahhhhhhhhhhh!

  2. TOTALLY alien squirrels.... or it was the wee birds nest found inhabited by a mama bird and her eggs just outside the front door in a laundry basket that we've left out there for who knows how long....

    The thing actually tried to attack Colin. It was like "ChIrrrPpppppPiiiiiiii" and then flew right up and at him all kamikaze bird style. SO pissed I not only missed that moment, but that I didn't get it on film. THAT woulda been awesome.

  3. Good to see you posting again, Scotland IS the land of my dreams. Say Hi to colin for me

  4. SBW: well... considering I work an average of 65+ hours a week, and am up at 6am six days a week, and in bed by 10pm (the actual falling asleep part is sadly negligible)... blogging is not high up on my list of things I need to do. Which is too bad, since I enjoy it, and miss it... but I need to ensure that I never have another "how the hell am I gonna pay the mortgage this month?!" stress fest. That's no fun.
    PS. Told ya so! Scotland IS the reason the word magic exists.

  5. LoL!!!!! Now I know that alien squirrels were making that strange noise the other day. =)
