It's unlikely that you'll remember, but about a year or so ago I lost three (3) things which were, I felt, impossible to have lost. They were:

  1. a pair of my favorite jeans

  2. a parallel port cable for my scanner

  3. and

  4. a dinner plate

I eventually, as you may recall, found my jeans, er, hanging up in my closet. (I had looked there! At least three times! I swear!) The cable was never found; I suppose it's possible I never had it. The plate was never found either. Its location remains a mystery.

This time, there are two (2) things which I cannot locate and which seem IMPOSSIBLE to lose, and yet lost them I have. They are:

  1. my slippers - how could I have lost my slippers? It's not like I wear them OUT. Who do I look like, Dave Mitchell? I only wear them when I get out of the shower. I can't recall bringing them overnight with me anywhere. And yet they are lost. I looked under my bed and everything.

  2. my Jack Skellington wine glass - I'm REALLY concerned about this one. Jeff got me a pair of Nightmare Before Christmas wine glasses for my birthday this year. They are TOTALLY AWES. One is Jack and the other is Sally, and they're big beautiful wine glasses, etched, with the portrait on one side and "Nightmare Before Christmas" on the other. They're beautiful.

    And Jack is missing.

    Where could he be? He's been gone for almost two months. If he had been misplaced around the house, I would have come across him by now. I know I'm messy, but there are only so many places a wine glass can be. It's possible that one of my guests broke him; but wouldn't they have fessed up by now? I mean it's not as though I'm not going to notice! Oh, I hope that I'm being super-scatterbrained and that he turns up someplace stupid, like the back of my ktchen cabinet or something. (P.S. If you broke my glass please tell me! So that my mind can be at ease.)

That's it for the missing things.

In other news, I wore my unds inside-out again today.

And I have preparations to make before the Halloween party tomorrow, but I have to come in to work. Well okay I don't have to, but I told Bruce that I would. Which means that I have to get here by like eight. Which is ridiculous, but we'll see how that turns out. I'm going to see Mitch Hedberg and Dave Attell and Lewis Black with Dave tonight, I hope that they are awesome. And that they end early enough so that I can hang out and get crunked up afterward. But not TOO crunked up, because I have to get up so early the next day! Man. But my paycheck will be mind-bogglingly sweet next week because of it.

I'm almost done being sick! Hooray!

Have a great weekend. You should order Boo! if you haven't already.

I remember drinking out of one of those glasses one time recently at your house! But I didn't break it. I don't think. And I also don't remember which one I was drinking out of. This is all very helpful, isn't it?

Maybe it got broken in the dishwasher?

Also- I've been missing one slipper since last year. I just found it two nights ago.

Naw, the wineglasses don't fit in the dishwasher, I wash them by hand (they're so delicate, it'd make me nervous even if they weren't too tall). Besides, I'd see shards in the bottom of the machine.

You don't THINK you broke it? Hmmmm . . .

Maybe Henry put it in the dishwasher. And the dishwasher broke it into pieces that were so small they got washed out.

Henry doesn't clean.

HAHA, way to steal that pumpkin icon from My Yahoo!

I don't know! I didn't like, smash it against anything, but now I'm freaked out that I did somehow break one because I definatley used one but I like those glasses and I use them a lot so STOP ACCUSING ME!

Well, but even if you did break it accidentally, they're not magical evaporates-once-broken glasses, the pieces would have to be SOMEWHERE.

You're still at the top of my suspects list, though, Mahoney.

I swear, I didn't take your glass!

Where did you find your slipper?
Oct. 17th, 2003 12:23 pm (UTC)
it just totally appeard out of nowhere one day. the only explanation that makes any sense is that I only put one of them away with my "winter stuff" last year. I just recently took my winter stuff out, so maybe that's where the other one came from?

Even though I don't think I put my slippers away for summer, it's the only thing I could come up with.

i'm almost done being sick, too! huzzah!

Well, I put it in an envelope and DIDN'T. I found this padded envelope the other day and was like "hm, what is in here!"


Please Paypal me $50 stat to ensure seeing your scarf alive again.

PS: I stole your glass. Wine tastes way better from it than from other glasses.
