Oh, the internets just got a little Fisherier.  My husband has been writing much longer than I have, and finally put together a blog featuring a bunch of the weekly columns he does for his paper.  Gosh, if only someone had thought of this sooner, like years ago, like his wife or something!  I’m crossing my fingers that he will continue to put up little vignettes like this one from the other night, in which we discover that our house is so weird and creepy that not even the guy who flipped his car in the snow after midnight wanted to hang out very long.

To give you a general idea of what kind of material he covers, here are his tags:

Yeah, that sounds about right.

Oh, man.  He’s blogging! He’s blogging!   Now I just need to harass him to include a photo of his chiseled, handsome face with the long eyelashes and the cleft chin, so I won’t have to keep using this one:

    Did I see a tag labeled “Mother****ing?” I can’t even bring myself to spell that out…lol.

    Now he needs a Facebook fan page so he can announce when he posts. Or have an email signup

  • Sarah

    Yay! More Fischers!

    The pile of tag-links reminds me to ask: when will you do another post of search terms poetry? My husband and I like to read the old ones aloud and laugh and laugh.

    • simchafisher

      Oh, I keep meaning to! I have a new tracking system which makes it harder to find the search terms, but that would be a good project for this weekend.

        Fantastic! Also, I am sorry I misspelled your last name; I am a total noodlehead.

        Okay, in the meantime, I’ve been wanting to ask:

        Is your policy on what to wear to an invisible lobster baptism the same for cowboys and morons?

        And is Pope Francis really from Argentina, or just faking it to attract the “Señor Cardgage” demographic?

        So far, googling your archives for answers has been almost entirely no help. Thanks

  • Francine Weber

    Soooo I guess your husband doesn’t like Maine?

  • CT Catholic Corner

    I could have done without the “MotherF***ing” tag, but I loved “locked out of the car by the dog”. :)

  • Matthew

    I find the Fisher’s honesty incredibly refreshing. Looking forward to reading your husband’s blogs.

  • bob cratchit

    Anything NSFW? I just book marked this at work.

    • simchafisher

      The archives, at least, are totally safe for work – only the tags are a bit profane.

    I’m feeling *slightly* guilty about the comment I left yesterday on one of his posts. It was the one about the poor guy who flipped his car in the snow in front of your house. I laughed about the cage in the living room, and thought of all the strange and embarrassing things at our weird house too. So reminding him that it’s been in the 80s here was less “nahnahnahna nah nnah” and more about tempting him to move you guys back to his old stomping grounds. Think of all the weird things you could blog about! You would be permanently appalled while enjoying the climate. But the good weather kind of tires you out after a while.
    (On that note, I’m going to go read on the roof, where I have my temperpedic mattress, some plastic grass, and a market umbrella. :D I joined a book club, and am being forced to read an intellectual masterpiece. Blogs have given me reading- A.D.D.)

    I am looking forward to reading them.
