I hope a unicorn humps your butt

At least, that's what the button my sister got for me says. Ain't she sweet?

Tuscany update - third time's the charm. So far. Not wanting to tempt fate, there.

I'm hot. Not complaining, after June-uary. Besides, it's hard to when you're a melted puddle on the floor anyway. It was at least 35 degrees celsius today (that's around 100 F, I think.)

Prolly not helping that my brother-in-law has the oven on right now, but we're a family with strong feelings about our bonding rituals and traditions. Just about to break out the baked-brie-and-jam. Got some garlic roasting, and a baguette to sop it up. Just the thing to top us up after the Beer Butt Chicken we had for dinner. (They call it "Violated Chicken." I took pictures. They're rather disturbing.)

Meanwhile, Mr.Q is snoring on the couch...could be he had a beer too many...could be the heat...but from the carpet burn on his knees, I'd say it's from a solid afternoon of playing "Tickle Camel" with 4 kidlets hanging off him at all times. And I'm not sure he didn't have more fun than they did. Come the kids' bedtime, he was the one who needed a time out. We had to ask the kids not to get him wound up anymore. Which they found highly entertaining.

It's good to be back in the Kootenays!

The word is BUM. That's an important detail.

Beer Butt Chicken - we had that at a friend's house in Hawaii. Damn fine stuff - I just tried to keep the cooking process picture out of my mind.

They didn't refer to it as 'Violated' though - I may have to enlighten them. I'm sure they'll appreciate it.
