Adorable Kellie Pickler … poor sweet emtpy headed Kellie Pickler.

At least her dress is smart looking


Not exactly what I wanted to do on a free night

November 29, 2007

The boys are most likely going to be gone tonight.  The Office is on tonight.  I could REALLY use a free night with my man.

Know what I’m gonna be doing?

Buying a new freaking stove.  Yes, indeed, ours has officially bit the dust.

Awesome, eh? I mean, who doesn’t want to go and shell out $500 for a new stove right before Christmas?

Fuck fuck fuckity fuck fuck fuck.

Currently, I’m in love with this

Go listen to it now. You can thank me later.


What I know for sure — today, anyhow

Mrs. Dash is not salt. It’s just not. It’s not bad, it’s actually quite good, but it’s not salt. Elvis help any of you who mistakenly think that it’s gonna taste like salt. It doesn’t. ‘Cause it’s not.

Conquering Mt. Laundry has to be right up there with conquering Everest.

Vinegar & Water is the only household cleaner you need. Well, okay, maybe throw some baking soda in there, too, but for the most part, Vinegar and Water will do. I scrubbed my whole house with it yesterday – including my hardwood floors – and was amazed. It completely and totally cleaned *everything* and got rid of the Mystery Funk that has been hanging around. And nope, doesn’t smell like vinegar.

Dogs must be related to pigs because mine is such a ham. Check out the attempt at a self portrait of me and the boys —

When your body gains 3 pounds even though you are working out and eating well, there must be a reason. Give it a week – those three pounds usually land exactly where you need them. Badonkadonk.

I can, indeed, look like Carol Brady circa 1972. Well, Carol Brady if she somehow mated with Joey Ramone. Totally tamed down do in this picture — usually it’s very piece-y and shaggy and very mod / punk ish …. FUN. Regardless, still, its’ Carol Brady on Acid.

Okay, so the back isn’t long, but believe me, the front of my hair does the little flip when I allow it to.  Gotta love new haircuts. Think I’ll keep this one for awhile.  (Okay, Bill, there’s your pics.  Happy now?)

Putting a dryer vent cut out thingy majiggy in our laundry room was one of the smartest things we’ve done.  All that hot moist air comes through the dryer, instead of it all going outside and warming up the backyard, it now vents into our play room!  I swear, it raises the temp in the basement by at least 10° when the dryer is running.  AHHHHHHHHH.  And yes, I used the word moist.  ick.  At least it wasn’t “I got some moist salve on my slacks because I couldn’t find the ointment.” heh

After nearly 9 years, it’s hard to find that hot sexy man that made me shimmy in my shorts beneath all the dirty socks and dishes, bedtime farts, and muddy boot tracks through my kitchen.  Hearing, “What color iPhone do you want for Christmas, Baby?” helps a lot.  Helps even more when I say, “Well, maybe we should just get the iPod Touch” and he says, “Cool, iPod touch and what else???”  😀

Hope Brady, a character on my beloved Days of Our Lives (shut up,) is really starting to piss me off.

I miss Jason and I want him to come play.

It’s hard to knit something I’m supposed to be knitting when I’m supposed to be knitting it in acrylic yarn.  I HATE acrylic yarn — but shit, it’d cost me a mortgage payment to make it in cashmere.

My fingers are nearly all healed up, except the ring finger.  It’s still very sore and swollen and, although it’s healing, I can still see the vein.

People who constantly repeat themselves … sweet mary, I heard you the first time already. SHUT IT, eh?

I’m thinking Gift Cards are the most amazing and magical gifts of the season.   Or, at least I hope to convince the recipients of my holiday gifts as much.

It’s hard to really enjoy a good beer when you know the nutritional values of said beer.

Seeing things without emotion makes everything so very clear.

Paper snowflakes don’t make themselves.  Ta ta

I’m aware that the fighting has ceased in Uganda.  I know I wrote as if it continues to this day.

The effects of the war, however, are on going.  So while the children are no longer being stolen from their homes, the fact is that they still have so little and so many are still missing – it’s as if they are continuing to be asaulted.  By donating to Invisible Children, we help provide a future for these children – education, economy, etc.


Look Purty, Feel Great

I’m posting this in addition to my post about the children in Uganda so that the readers who use feed readers can get this post, too.

We all wonder what we can do and how we can help. We all should do some part, whatever it may be.  As for my part,

I will donate 15% of all Kohleidoscope sales

from today until December 15th to Invisible


Every little bit helps.  Please help if you can.
