Welcome Back, M.A.E.

Those of you who have been kind enough to stick with TFM through all the weirdness, fictional and otherwise, might recognize the name Ms. Almost Einstein, whom I usually just call M.A.E. Waaaayyyy back when, she was The Boy’s girlfriend, the one he swore he’d kill himself over if we tried to break them up. (Drama queens come in more than one gender.) She was one of the original FAR Manor boarders and hangers-on, and continued to live with us even after The Boy (after sharing a house with her for a good long while) broke up with her over the phone while we were in Florida. Somewhat over three years ago, she left the manor to be close to her new boyfriend.

That didn’t last long, and she eventually found another boyfriend, reproduced (deliberately), never did quite marry the guy. M.A.E. and Mrs. Fetched have stayed in touch, and even went to the resort with us (and little Emma, who now has the blog name Moptop) last September. Then the boyfriend ran into some trouble, going to jail for drugs, and not exactly being a model father and SO after he got out. Somewhere along the line (according to M.A.E. anyway), he started cheating on her and she finally had enough last weekend and bailed (with Moptop of course). She spent a day at SPOW (her mom’s) place, but her mom makes Big V look like a model of sanity and she bailed on that situation too…

… and guess where she landed?

Mason certainly doesn’t mind — he likes watching girls, and Moptop is definitely a girl. We had a daybed in the garage, and were able to set it up in the living room with just a little furniture shuffling. M.A.E. and Moptop were both going to sleep in it last night, but DoubleRed had some place she needed to be for a few nights so she got her own (very large) bed. She brought a ton of food with her, and we’re taking a lot of it for Big V to have some chow.

I can’t wait to get some photos of Mason and Moptop together. They ought to be tooth-rotting cute!


  1. You are a saint Far -- I don't know how you pull it off.

  2. Hey KB! Turns out that they'll only be here a few days… and then she's moving to Big V's. Talk about out of the frying pan and into the fire!

  3. OMG -- well, good luck to them!

    Hope you have fun on your vacation(?)

  4. So far so good on the vacation front, KB. We arrived safely, none too soon as far as Mason was concerned though, but he's enjoyed being here so far.


Comments are welcome, and they don't have to be complimentary. I delete spam on sight, but that's pretty much it for moderation. Long off-topic rants or unconstructive flamage are also candidates for deletion but I haven’t seen any of that so far.

I have comment moderation on for posts over a week old, but that’s so I’ll see them.
