Smokin' cigarettes and watchin' Captain Kangaroo

If four out of five dentists recommend Trident, what does the fifth dentist recommend?

Dr Oz says we should all fart.

I bought myself a birthday present yesterday -- a new purse. I rarely buy personal stuff for me, so this is a big deal.

I told Mark what to get me for my birthday...where it is, when the store is open and how much it costs. We'll see.

That new red chair I said I bought with my furniture? Not on the receipt...should have known the total was too now I am pondering whether to go back and get that one or look around.

Leaving for Fort Collins, Colorado early Thursday morning.

My kitty Meisha, the one with the swinging, wiggly tummy, breathes really hard..not in a bad kind of way, but more in a stuffed up kind of's cute.

I'm feeling kind of pissy this morning, no particular reason, I guess.

Three day work week ahead!

Politics are really pissing me off these days.

It rained yesterday but not nearly enough. Some of the dirt and grime is gone but the snow piles are still huge.

Speaking of swinging tummies, want to talk about mine?'s one thing to feel old, but another to feel old, fat and ugly.. Just sayin'.

I must confess. I have a new obsession, one that I am pretty ashamed to admit. The Housewives of Orange County. Nope, I don't want to hear how out of character this is for me. In fact, I don't want to hear about it at all.

Did anyone ever decide how many licks it took to get to the center of a Tootsie Roll Pop? I never heard the answer.

My daughter insists that each and every human being eats a HUGE number of spiders in their lifetime...says it's a proven fact. (You know, like several hundred)... I ask CAN this be proven? And do spiders have a particular affinity for the human, I must presume, while we sleep?

Does anyone In Real Life care about the Academy Awards?

Youngest son, Jordy, called me yesterday from the grocery store and asked me why he had never had buttermilk. He said it looked so good, he thought he would just buy himself a gallon., I didn't let him believe it. I told him it tastes like sour ass...but would like to know whether he bought it or not.

Have a happy.

You know that 9 out of 10 doctors who tried Camels went back to women. The 10th was Saudi.

What's in Ft. Collins?

I just found those damn housewives and now I'm watching them in marathons.... Have a lovely Sunday

I'm telling my daughter I want a Pandora bracelet for my b-day. Lets see what happens. LOL
Housewives of Orange County? I have a feeling that this is something I would like. I will try and find them online. The sun is out and the sky is gorgeous....enjoy the day!!!

Heehee... I like the razor sharp wit when you're feeling pissy. ;)

I giggled at this whole post. That's too damn bad about the chair - but maybe it wasn't meant to be - maybe you'll find it cheaper somewhere else. It's worth a look.

I'm feeling pissy today too - let's have a pissy party.

love you!

I like the pissy you :-) Random and amusing. Thanks for the giggles this morning.

What ever is in Fort Collins, have fun. A child(ren) isn't it?

Have a wonderful day love.

I grew up on farm, so drinking buttermilk was just something we did occasionally. I never thought much about it until Liv wanted to try it one day and I poured her a cup. She took one sip and went green. I had no idea that it was an acquired taste!

And..hey...politics are making me pissy too and I'm your polar opposite politically. I think most humans can take only so much, yes?

Summer said...

Please tell me if he bought the buttermilk. I'll never forget the total hideousness of that crap.

My new TV obsession is Ruby. Shhhh.

And you could have typed all day without the spider thing.

I like a blah, blah, blah kind of post. This and that in your own irreverent way. Was that the right word? It's Monday night and you're two days away from getting out of Dodge. I'm counting down for you because I so want you to have your get-away!

I just read your Saturday post. I hope your weekend felt long and stress-free. I'd love to think it was pain-free, but I know it wasn't. I like your new doctor, though. He sounds like a person who is honest and someone who could take this medical journey with you.

Take it as easy as you can, OK?
Hugs from me!

my kid loves buttermilk --- just so ya know-- she always has . i despise the stuff.

and about the tootsie pop-- all i know is on tv when i was young -- the owl -- i think -- or maybe his 'subject ' -- bit through it after three licks :))

that help any ?

laterz -- almost humpday!

I've been away for a while and I come back to see this humor in your blog posts and it made me smile girl! Thank you!
