Gone Drinkin’


I know! My supply is running low.

The title of this post implies that I’ve gone off to do something I don’t normally do. Ha ha. Well. Let’s go with it.

That’s right. I’m going fishing drinking.

Peppermeister and I celebrate our 4th anniversary today, and we’re headed to Long Island ’til Sunday. My extended family has a little house by a bay where I haven’t visited in 10 years, so I’m pretty excited to return. Even if the weather is crap.


This piece of Schmetz is my anniversary present. …What? The artist’s name is Schmetz!

The house doesn’t have internet access, which I’m nervous depressed confused about okay with. We’ll have, um, cruiser bikes…and bocce ball…and love. So that’s something.

I guess this is goodbye for a few days?

Holy chipmunks.

Don’t forget me.

I love you?

P.S. – Oh who am I kidding? My phone has 3G.

  1. Enjoy!!! And happy anniversary!!

  2. Happy Anniversary!!! =D Have fun!

  3. Happy anniversary! I will get through the deprivation by seeking out chipmunks in my yard and trying to get them to read and comment on my blog posts. Hurry back because they bite (the chipmunks and my blog posts).

  4. Aw, happy anniversary!! Have a great time. I know what it’s like to be on vacation with no internet…thank God for overpriced smartphones. πŸ˜€

  5. Few things are cooler than a surfing chipmunk.
    Have a happy fishing/drinking/internet free anniversary!

  6. Enjoy your break from the real world. What? Blogging is the real world, right?

    Happy Anniversary!

  7. Happy Anniversary! Have a great trip!

  8. Happy anniversary and bocce ball! That Schmetz is the schmetz.

  9. The greatest anniversary present ever!! Have fun!

  10. Congrats to you and the Peppermeister! Have a fab time!

  11. Happy anniversary! Peppermeister did great with that painting. A man who rewards his wife’s chipmunk fetish… I think you’ve got yourself a keeper, Jules. πŸ˜‰

  12. Awww, that man is a keeper!! πŸ˜‰

    Have a fab time in Long Island. Hey wait a second, isn’t that where the Iced Teas are from? Yeah, I think you’ll be just fine. πŸ™‚

    Happy Anniversary!!

  13. How long IS Long island?! Have fun! πŸ™‚ x

  14. Gasp! What? You didn’t think to consult with me first? fine, you can go. But I won’t like it one bit.

    Happy anniversary! Enjoy yourselves! (Julia just told me she wants that chipmunk painting!)

  15. Happy anniversary! Have fun on your romantic, unplugged getaway and have a drink or 12 for me. I’m giving up the sauce after drinking Hennesey and coke last night in an attempt to gain some gangsta street cred. It wasn’t even my anniversary. Just a Wednesday. I’m sure this comment is in spam prison.

  16. Happy anniversary Jules!! Thank you for being so you!! ❀

  17. Wowzers! Your husband made that painting? Lucky you! My hubby is also an artist. ❀ We are truly lucky women.

  18. Hey Jules! Happy Anniversary!! I hope you and the Peppermeister have tons of fun! My anniversary is tomorrow and the hubs and I are going into DC to celebrate. :)!!!

  19. Happy Anniversary…you lovebirds have fun…

  20. Have a lovely anniversary trip! I hope a lobster roll is in your near future.

  21. Happy Anniversary! Why didn’t I think of a surfing chipmunk? I feel like I’m always a step behind….

  22. Happy Anniversary!!! And that is awesome that you feel pretty much the same way I do about fishing. “So have you been fishing yet this year?” “No I have not been out to drink beer and take pictures of things while other people fish, why do you ask?” It’s always beer… Manhattans just don’t work in the outdoors for some reason, and unlike my two younger sisters, I’m just not down with the coolers – too sweet 😦 have fun!!!

  23. Absolutely love reading your posts. Happy anniversary and enjoy your weekend away from the blogs. πŸ˜‰ Catch ya on the flip side of the weekend.

  24. Happy Anv and enjoy

  25. Lol, maybe you should leave the 3G phone behind ;-p

    Happy anniversary Jules, enjoy every bubble!

  26. Sounds like a very ‘Kennedy’ weekend, all sporty and everything. Well, Happy Anniversary. That must be a ‘commissioned’ piece or perhaps the world is stranger than I thought. Very cute, must have been a fun surprise.

  27. Congrats on 4 years! We just celebrated four years too. Your picture reminds me that I have two bottles of mediocre champagne that could be yours if you come for charred meat. I am pretty sure one of them was given to me by Jesus. I LOVE that surfing squirrel. You’ve got a keeper in the Peppermeister.

  28. I love classic art like that – poker playing dogs, chipmunks hanging 12 (they have 6 little toes on each foot, BTW.)
    Hippie stole my line (by coming up with it INSTEAD of me) – commencing with saying everything is “the Schmetz” from here on out.

    Happy, happy drinking! er, Anniversary!

  29. I’ve decided to drink now in your honor, so at 1020am and i’m “gone” too. happy happy.

  30. Okay, everybody out of the Internet! We’re closing until Sunday!

  31. Yay for anniversary fun! Enjoy your time away from us chipmunks dearest. Also, I’m quite looking forward to reading about some bocce ball mishaps.

  32. Have fun!! Happy Anniversary!! May you be blessed with many chipmunk sightings on the long island!!

  33. Happy, happy Anniversary!!! Cruiser bikes and bocce ball–what more could a girl ask for? Enjoy all of that champagne and your husband and put the cell phone down. We’ll be waiting very patiently for your return. Have fun!!!

  34. Phone it in! Happy boozing– I mean loving… wait, this is awkward now…

  35. Happy Anniversary! Hope you’re enjoying your boozing!

  36. Switch it off and stare into each other’s eyes πŸ™‚ Happy Anniversary

  37. Happy Anniversary, Jules and Peppermeister. Hope you have a wonderful time.

  38. Happy drinking…errr…anniversary! Hope you have a great time πŸ™‚ Congrats on four years!

  39. Happy Anniversary! If only I could get surfer animal paintings for my anniversary…

  40. I don’t know if these blogging awards are a slick form of chain letter. I’m new to WordPress and the curious social mores. Your blog makes me laugh out loud and gives me such JOY (seriously). I’ve nominated you for the Reader Appreciation Award because you kick ass and love chipmunks and slap bracelets. If you choose to accept this distinguished honor, the “rules” are on my page:


  41. I hope you’re enjoying your vacation and happy belated anniversary! I received the slap bracelet and let’s say my little girl keeps trying to pilfer it, so I told her we’ll share it. It’s pink and you slap it to put it on, she loves it as do I πŸ˜‰ Thanks for spreading the chipmunk love (lol, ummm I originally spelled that chimpmunk and am giggling at the image!) I hope you enjoyed the bubbly…I have a nickname, bubbles, as boy do to my love feeling them tickle my throat (the bubbles, not the chimpmunks). Be well, Jules!

  42. Belated happy anniversary! I can’t wait till you’re back, not that I’m going to leave you alone while you’re away. πŸ˜‰
