Costco and a millkshake recipe

The other day at Costco…

Such a cliche start to a blog post from a stay at home mom with multiple children who semi-home-schools and sends the oldest to a charter school who makes her own Kombucha and just nursed the family’s most recent female addition (yes, we only have girls) to sleep and can ramble on just as long as Mad Philosopher with smaller words…

That was actually the start to Mad Philosopher’s recent post, but it suited me as well.  In the same vein as “visit Costco and buying their giant boxes of baby diapers that never seem to last as long as you want and giant tasty muffins that a Hashimoto’s girl like me can no longer enjoy”, I figured I would throw my run-on-sentence stream-of-consciousness into the giant void that is the internet.

“I have gadgets and gizmos a plenty…I have ideas and recipes galore…want a gluten free dessert- I have 20! But who cares…no big deal…”

Okay, kinda’ hope you care enough to keep reading. And to not tattle on me to the Mad Philosopher that I just quoted the “Little Mermaid.”  I’m burying the lead, here, but hold out just a little longer…

Mad Philosopher counts how many words he writes each and every post. I don’t think I will. radical freedom!  In all seriousness, I am trying to keep my post short and fun and maybe even helpful.  As a thank you for any who made it this far in my first not-gif post, here is a super easy and delicious Bailey’s milkshake recipe to sip on later and a promise of a funny gif post soon.

 

Bailey’s Shake:

2 shots Bailey’s

Roughly 1 1/2cups ice cream (chocolate is recommended)

Optional (but not really): whipped cream.  Also, sprinkles.

Put the Bailey’s in first, add all ingredients into blender and then enjoy! Add more or less ice cream depending on desired thickness.

 

Mad Philosopher’s 2016 Election

This Election Season, sitting next to Mad Philosopher…

I am sure many (or none, really) are curious about what Mad Philosopher was thinking about during the election season. I’m not trying to be mean or suggest no one cares about the Mad Philosopher. I am suggesting that he does a decent job posting what is on his mind on Facebook. But one of the perks of being the Wife of Mad Philosopher is getting a unique point of view on what’s going with the Mad. And in celebration of the election finally being nearly here and (finally) over, here is a glimpse into that view point. I hope you enjoy!

4 years ago (because that’s when the talking began)
Him: Voting is absolutely an act of coercion.
*cue running victory lap for coming to a conclusion*
Me: Sounds legit…

1 year ago
Him: This show is a joke and full of retards or worse. I wish I didn’t have to pay attention to it all.
Me: Why do you think you have to?
Him: *cue some well-reasoned explanation*
What I remember: “I need to know exactly how everyone is wrong so I can tell all about it on Facebook!!!”

6 months ago
Him: I was right all along. They are all stupid/ evil. But…
Me: uh huh…uh huh… (must admit I stopped paying attention to the specifics at this point)

2 months ago
Him: I wonder… maybe I should be voting…
Me: WHAT?!

Currently
Him: *cue a frustrated look back at whether or not voting is always an act of coercion*
Me: *cue banging head on wall*
Him: Maybe also repeal the 19th Amendment, too?
Me: *curl up in corner in fright*

This election season has seen the Mad truly came full circle. I’m sure there is a Lion King pun to be put in here, but I am too preoccupied with… well, see above to properly put together that joke.

10 Feelings Only Wives of Anarchists Can understand

This is something my wife cooked up to pick on me.  I thought it was too funny to not share, so I created a blog to share it with the world.

1)  When he (or anyone in his presence) brings up the roads (again):

2:  When you lose your husband for the night so he can watch infighting on the internet:

3:  It’s the end of a long day with the children acting out and your husband (jokingly) calls you a Statist for sending a disobedient child to their room:

Picture

4:  When you suddenly see someone called him a libertarian or utopian on Facebook:

Picture

5:  When anyone asks him why he is an Anarchist…

Picture

6:  …And about halfway through his explanation you feel like…this:

Picture

7:  He tells you he is done discussing anarchy for the night, at first you are like:

Picture

…Then when you realize it’s so he can discuss Bitcoin (again):

Picture

8:  When a family member asks why you haven’t changed your husband’s mind about anarchy yet:

Picture

9:  When he tells you we should “encourage Anarchy when raising the children.”

10:  But then you decide to enforce a strict and early bedtime, because by now you really need some chocolate or wine:
