Five Questions Friday: Bee Revenge

Q: Did you ever watch the show Rosanne?
Eric: Yes.

Q: Did you hear they are reviving it with original cast?
Eric: Really? Even John Goodman?
Yes. But I believe for only six episodes. 
That should be good. I bet it gets great ratings.

Q: Do I still need to create your summer workshop classes’ website? I thought it was sold out but I saw one of your notes on the dryer saying “summer class website”. 
Eric: Yes, probably. I didn’t want to ask you sooner because you are absorbed with your art show. But my students do like to see all the info. even though they have been here before. 

Q: Did you leave it on the dryer hoping I would see it or is that where you write down notes?
Eric: Is that where I left it? I was wondering where my list went.

Q: What aggravated you this week?
Eric: I’m obsessed with these giant carpenter bees. I just caught one drilling a perfect 1/4-inch hole in our new bath house stud I put up a few days ago. I’m out for revenge. I’m going to get all of them.

Five Questions Friday: Bee Rescuer

Q: So was it hard for you to leave me and my parents who stopped in on their way from Florida to New Hampshire, to go off to the Indiana Convention—Especially since a string of bad storms were heading our way?
Eric: Yes, it was very hard. I was very worried. I was online watching the Nashville newscast.

Eric: By the way, I have a question for you… why were my speakers all disconnected in the workshop?
Me: Oh yeah. I forgot to tell you about that. During the tornado warning, my mom and I were in your main workshop room. We were watching the local news to see where in McMinnville the tornado warning was focused. But my dad was in the movie room, apparently not worried that the tornado warning was in our town, watching his own program. However, your two speakers in the main room were wired into the movie room, blaring my dad’s show, so we couldn’t hear the weather. I unplugged one of your speakers thinking it would disconnect both but it didn’t. So I had to disconnect the second one. Sorry, but safety came first on that one.

Q: My mom and I are back to our FitBit challenge. I reduced her weekly requirements to 10,000 steps a day, 5 days a week. Mine are 10,000 a day, 6 days a week. She has already missed 3 days. Do I dock her or let it slide?
Eric: Awwwe, geez. Well, I guess you can dock her if you want but I wouldn’t recommend you doing that. 

Q: I am so glad I am done the taxes— and two days before they were due! Taxes completely stress me out. Does my personality change at all during this mad-dash-to-get-taxes-done?
Eric: (LOL) Ahh… I’m gonna say I don’t think so.

Q: What aggravated you this week?
Eric: All the bees coming into my workshop. I propped the door open to bring materials in and had four this afternoon I had to rescue.
Me: Rescue? We’re rescuing bees now?
Eric: Yeah. I got a good method now. They always go to the window. I capture it in a cup, slide a piece of cardboard over it and then set it free outside.
Me: Yeah, to come right back in.
Eric: Probably. It’s likely from all the climbing roses on the porch.
Me: Well, those are not going anywhere.

Five Questions Friday: She Gets Bling

Q: For anyone who has been wondering whether you like Coco Kitty or not, how come she gets “bling” and I don’t?
Eric: Oh, Gheesh. I remember you telling me you don’t like jewelry and you don’t want me buying you jewelry.
(Uh huh. But I do think her new leopard print diamond collar is perfect for this diva of a cat.)

Q: How long did it take you to trick out her new ‘used’ carrier? (don’t need to talk about the hours it took you to scrub the nasty well-used carrier we bought at a flea market for $5 – sure wish you took a ‘before’ photo!)
Eric: Ahh well it was already taken apart to wash it. After it dried I painted all the hardware and cage gold. Then the top a lime green and gloss black for the bottom All paint we already had. But all of that did not take as long as it did to clean it. And nobody needed to see the ‘before’ photo.
(Can’t beat that sweet ride for five bucks! Now train her to get in it so we can go to the vet.)

Q: So you never told me your answer regarding the hottest question on Twitter yesterday regarding “yes” or “no” for pineapple on pizza?
Eric: Ahh, I’m going with Gordon Ramsey. No pineapple.
(I said “yes”! I love pineapple on pizza!)

Q: I do not like the saying “Kill two birds with one stone.” And I found myself wanting to text that to someone this week but didn’t. Can you come up with a better saying that is not so grisly?
Eric: There’s no way of replacing. That’s a good saying. 

Q: What aggravated you this week?
Eric: It’s not Coco Kitty this time but it’s all her toys! They are scattered everywhere and when I bump into one, she bolts out and is under my feet again. And not talking about all the stuff she thinks are her toys like my tacks, clips, splint, weavers I just split, new stack of handles, new stack of rims, the mini bases…
(Okay we got it.)
