Friday’s Feast

June 29, 2007


Friday’s Feast
(What the hey-hoo is on that salad?!

Appetiser: How many pieces of jewelry do you wear most days?
I’m not a huge jewelry wear-er…unless I’m all gussied up for an evening out.  Most days it’s my silver hoop earrings, wedding ring, watch and toe ring (hasn’t come off in over 15 years!)

Soup: What is your favorite instrumental song?
I don’t have a favorite but I LOVE listening to Bond.  They play electric strings like no one’s business.  They try to act like “Bond girls” (as in Bond…James Bond), but don’t look at ’em, just listen to ’em.

Salad: Who has a last name that you like?
One word…Humperdink…nothing else needs to be said.

Main course: Name a popular movie you’ve never seen.
Jaws, Casablanca, Starwars III, MI: III, 7 Deadly Sins, Fight Club, Million Dollar Baby… I could go on and on……

Dessert:  Fill in the blank –
Nothing makes me quite cracked up like when I see people trip or gleeck and look around to see who caught them and then try to play it off like nothing happened! 



I’m a head banger

That Stacey!  She’s gone and given me the Rockin’ Girl Blogger Award!!  You know those blogs where you keep watching your Google Reader list, waiting for that favorite blog to show they’ve written another post and you jump over there within a minute of them posting it?  That’s my Stacey.  Her job seriously interferes with my need to read more posts.

Anyway, all that to say, the fact that one of my very favorite bloggers think I’m a Rockin’ Blogger is almost too much!!!  I’m giddy, I tell ya, I’m giddy.

 So…now I get to pick 5 other bloggers who I think rock.   No problem….

Simply A Musing Blog -I can’t even remember how I came across Karen’s blog but I immediately fell in love with her humor.  She’s a Texan so that should sum it up right there.  One day we’re going to get together and laugh over completely nonsense…just because we can!

Little Bits of Life – Originally I was drawn to Robin’s blog because she had recently moved from Texas to Oklahoma…that’s a hard move ya’ll.  Being a born Okie, I can’t imagine a Texan going over to the ‘dark side’!  She is a great mom to a couple of beautiful girls and she’s great partner to her man.

The Wooden Porch – She is just dang funny!  She has that slice of sarcasm that I just ‘get’.  She’s also the host of Laugh Out Loud Mondays….yet I find myself LOL on more days than Mondays!

All Grown Up? -You guys thought I was a crazy pastor’s wife…you need to go see Charmed.  She’s a self-proclaimed pantyless preachers wife (there’s a reason that’s not so X-rated) and is a hoot to read.

Roses are Red, Violets are Violet – I have been lurking on this site for quite awhile, but have finally plunged into her comment world.  This girl has talent of no other I know.  A quick wit is so entertaining for me! Go check her out…you won’t be disappointed.

 Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to bang some pride out of my head….


To correct or not to correct…

I have to tell you guys…Gremlin was absolutely cracking me up yesterday.  That kid is a nutcase.  He and OldMan were arguing about something (who knows what…it’s always something with them) when I heard Gremlin tell him, “I don’t care if you are older, I’m 4 and that means I’m going t0 Kicker-garten if I want to!”  OldMan and I looked at each other then busted up laughing.  OldMan whispered to me, “Should we tell him or just let it go??”  Oh we’re definitely letting that one go!


Throwback Thursday – 4th birthday

Gremlin’s 4th B-day4th-birthday.png

In honor of Gremlin who turned 4 this week, I’m showing a picture of me on my 4th birthday.  That’s my big brother, Hulkman, enthralled by my blowing capabilities.  He looks completely stunned, huh?! 

(He’s actually waiting for me to hurry up and finish my birthday cause he knows as soon as mine is over, he’ll be next.  It’s a month later than mine, but we hear about it just about every hour of every day starting the day after my birthday!  If anything, he IS consistant!)

I have to mention…see that lamp/phone on desk behind me?  I played with thing every day….and from time to time I still have dreams about that lamp!


WFMW – Odds and Ends

June 27, 2007


  Here are a few things that aren’t worth a post all unto itself (is that even gooder English?! 😉 ):

1. Cat liter makes an easy odor eater.  It works great in the bottom of trash cans, in any room that gets musty, or even the shed.

2. For pooches who require a no-tip water bowl outside:  use a bundt cake pan and put a wooden stake through the middle.

3. For hollow-stemmed flower arrangements:  they have a tendency to droop too quickly.  Add a few drops of vodka to the water and they’ll stand up straight!  (Ohhhh, how bad I want to add obnoxious one liners here.)

Thanks Shannon for hosting Works For Me Wednesday!


The Food Network is of the Devil!

June 26, 2007

How on God’s green earth am I suppose to lose weight when The Food Network makes it look so easy to cook such incredibly delicious dishes?!?!  Of course one of my favorites is that Paula woman…and she can’t cook without adding either 2 sticks of butter or a pound of cream cheese.  AND I just happen to have both in my fridge.  AND it wouldn’t be very frugal of me to let it go to waste sooooooo….

Needless to say, I gained some MORE weight, but I also lost some.  I exercised ya’ll!  So all in all I’m down .8 pounds. 

It sounded like we all had a hard time last week….how are we doing this week??


Bling Contest

June 25, 2007

Yes, another friggin’ contest.  Look…. Summer’s are for getting hot and looking hot.

 It’s jewelry!!!  It’s not a Hello Kitty ring and it’s not a macaroni necklace.  IT’S REAL JEWELRY!!!

They’re having it…cause they’re hot!

(I should SO be in marketing….)
