is there a reason people plant juniper bushes?

they are disgusting and smell like cat piss. i spent all day rooting through one. found all kinds of exciting things.

(she’s missing her leg, by the way. so we decided to let her go even though she was kind of hot.) you can check my picasa for our two week progress. boy got the yard tilled and seeded. i picked a bazillion rocks out of the front yard, painted, and did some grocery shopping. all three kids fell asleep in the car on the way to winco. boy sat out in the parking lot with them and ended up watching ducks duke it out. a bereaved male duck was fending off some sicko, hot-shot ducks. they were trying to peck out his dead girlfriends eyes while she was all laid out in the middle of the sidewalk. meanwhile a gimpy, one-legged duck flopped around the perimeter, cheering them on. i thought it was a very sad story.

    AMEN! We had juniper bushes outside the house I grew up in, and I hated them with a passion because every toy we ever lost ended up in the middle of one. And then we’d have to stick our arms deep into to itchy scratchy bushes, hoping there weren’t any spiders about.

    There is no excuse for juniper bushes.

    yep, pure evil. if anyone reads this and has a juniper you should really go outside and kick it. and then have your husband do the nasty business of pulling it up when he gets home.
    but i do like the name “juniper” for a girl. like juniper berries, it sounds poppy. and i like the name “jupiter” for a boy, now that i think about it. i also like the names “duke” and “gertrude” so no one need take me seriously.

    I also hate juniper bushes. They’re so ungodly, just like those white spiders that grow in the dirt under them. Ugg! The duck story isn’t as bad, though, as the time I saw the necrophiliac pigeon in front of Notre Dame getting it on with a dead female of his species. In front of the church, of all places! I think I’m scarred for life.

    mackenzie, you are so funny! and i think “necrophiliac pigeon” would look good on a t-shirt. we could have paula sketch us a picture to go with?

    very bad.
