A Flaming Dog Poo Random Tuesday Thoughts

randomtuesday

If you want to play along with Random Tuesday Thoughts, go here to get the widget and add your name to Mr. Linky.

Random? Ready? Are you sure? Ok.. you were warned.  Buckle up…

My ants are back in my house.  Those pest control people are totally going to be like “WTF? Why did some crazy lady just teepee and egg our house??  Oh and was she the same disgruntled customer that left the flaming dog poo on our door step??”


Not to mention I have killed TWO spiders in the last week!  TWO.GODDAMN.EIGHT.LEGGED.FREAKS.

*shudder*

Yet another reason I want to go home.  Colorado doesn’t have NEARLY as many weird creepy crawlies.

I am totally addicted to that new song by Rihanna, Russian Roulette.

When I was searching for this song for y’all on YouTube, I was able to watch the video for the first time.  Which I must say was AWESOMESAUCE.  Mostly because Jesse Williams is in it, but also cause it rocks.

**Sidenote: I really hate his character on Grey’s Anatomy, but I have hopes he will come around.  And no matter what I just want to stare and ogle him.  OOOOGLE.

See?

mmmmmmm!

nomnomnom

And lets face it… Rihanna is quite the hottie to look at too.  Whether you swing that way or not, you HAVE to admit, she is HAWT!

*Nod*

I won the “Lemonade Award” from Mama4Real and while I am not totally sure what it means, when have I ever turned down the ability to say I won something???

Shut up.

So I am supposed to list 5 things about myself and then award 5 other people. Again, I am not really sure what I am awarding them.  I guess just the fantastic awesome ability to list 5 random facts about themselves on their blogs?  And since I love random, I am SO in!

*Sidenote: I am not sure if random really applied to this award, I think I added it as a marketing strategy all by myself cause I am an amazing business chick lady woman. –Copywrite of this random sidenote belongs to the ever famous Big Mama Cass Incorporated Company Group Industries Awesome Random Weirdness Inc. Co.

*grin*

To my 5 random facts are:

1.  I am addicted to Starbucks.  You may have heard me mention that here or here or possible here, maybe here or even here. I will be proud to mention again that if there is indeed a 12 Step Starbucks Program, sign me up.

2.  I hate bugs.  I’m not going to list all of those blogs cause SURELY you know by now.  And I will be here all night.  Which leads me to my next point…

3.  I am VERY impatient.  Shocker, I know.  Which leads to my next…

4.  I have a bit of an anger problem.  This is mostly just a problem when I am forced to deal with morons.  People like the drivers in Texarkana who have NO idea what a YIELD sign means.  They must not teach that here.  Because I have been about CREAMED exiting the highway EVERY.SINGLE.DAY. trying the head to Starbucks feed the homeless.  So I can’t help but lay on the horn and scream obscenities and show them my impression of a BIRD.  It’s totally bad, I know that.  But I do it.  *sigh*

5.  I have an abnormal love for animals.  Well, I don’t think it’s abnormal, but everyone else thinks I am KA-Razy.  But I LOVE all animals.  They are just like you and me.  And so when these two…

…showed up at my house wanting food and cuddles, I was totally ready to give in.  And Hubby refused and I called him heartless, which I will never take back.  Because he is clearly evil for not wanting them to crawl into his lap so he could scratch them behind their ears.

So then because of DR EVIL refusing me to be Schnauzer Savior of the Year,  I had to call Animal Control to get them picked up and home to their families.  Which he was sure to point out that the clearly had cause of those collars and stuff.

But whatever!  I still say they wanted to live with me!  *pout*

Even Daisy was being friendly.

Good lord, look how long her nails are.  Time for a Mani/Pedi.

It could be true love!  And now we will never know…

See?  I should have totally given in and let them both in.  They were boys too.  A perfect balance for the girls.

I am going to pout about this for at least another 10 minutes 2 weeks!

Thank you Mama4Real!

Now the 5 people I give this award to are MommaPixie, Oscarelli, Pulsipher Predilections, Take Me As I Am, and of course no award can go out on my blog without one awarded to my sister from another mister… *cue drum roll* Jill Pilgrim of The Pilgrim Congress!

These are blogs I never miss, even though I may be lacking in the comment department, I am always sure to read.  Please check them out if you haven’t already.

This concludes this test of the emergency broadcast system.

Thank you.

One Year Ago… & Random Tuesday Thoughts

randomtuesday

If you want to play along with Random Tuesday Thoughts, go here to get the widget and add your name to Mr. Linky.


One year ago today, Monkey took his first steps.  And I caught the whole thing on camera.  Yes it was only technically 2 steps (or perhaps 1 1/2) but when your kid is just 10 months old, that is BIG SHIZZLE!

It AMAZES me how much time has changed.  Now he runs all over the place like he’s late for a hot date.  As much as I wish he would slow down and walk, he just loves to run.  And fall.  Run and fall.  In that order.

I can’t believe that one year ago today I had a 10 month old and now I have a 22 month old.  WOW.  Those are worlds apart!

We start the injections this month.  This cycle.  I am nervous.  Not sure why.  Well, I am pretty sure I will get pregnant (knock on wood) but I am scared if I will stay pregnant.  I hope I hope I hope.

I want this to work so baaaaaaad!

I am trying to get my Christmas cards done.  But I have 150 cards to prep and I am sure as hell not writing all them addresses by myself!  No sir-ee bob!  And guess who is probably not going to write them all his-self either?  LOL Yup, the Hubby.

Soooo… I am trying to get all of them printed on my fancy home printer.  *sigh*

I have had this fancy Canon photo printer for about a year and other than printing 12348972903857 recipes and other random bits of fun, I have yet to print a photo or envelope or anything else of substance.  So, if anyone knows how the hell to use it… please come over and clue the clueless in.  Nnnkay??

There is not enough time in the day to get all of the shit done that I need to get accomplished.  I am getting seriously irritated about it.  I need to give up something.  But what?

Maybe I am just a slacker.

My Starbucks addiction is getting out of hand.  Even Hubby is starting to make subtle hints.  *humph*

I was going to have a bunch of photos prepared for you today but it didn’t happen.  Sorry 😦

Tomorrow I plan to share pictures (plan being the oprative word) of Monkey’s new haircut!  Cut by the new salon in town “Mama does hair”.  They just opened.  And it’s super close!  All I have to do is drive through the master bedroom into the master bath and I am there.  Awesome deal.

ANNNND, he didn’t scream like a loon the whole time I was cutting his hair.  So.  Haircut WIN!  I did awesome too.  Sursly.

What’s new in your world?

The Story of a Muu Muu and a UPS Dude Dear So and So Letters of Intent

Dear So and So...

Letters of Intent

——————————————–

Dear Self,

Get out of your funk!

Gah!

Me

——————————————–

Dear UPS “Dude” that delivers here EVERYDAY,

So I know that since you are here a lot now, you feel like we have “bonded” or whatever, BUT… please don’t be fooled.  We aren’t friends.  And yes, I realize that I have been in my Muu Muu for three days in a row when you have come by.  BUT, we do NOT have one of those “friendly” relationships where you can say things like “I thought if I came later today you would have had time to get dressed”.

*jaw drop*

Yeah we soooooo don’t have one of those relationships, nnkay?

Even though I appear to live in my jammies, you are coming to MY house, remember?  The place where I sleep?  And wear jammies?  Got it?

Hoping you get a bit more professional,

The lady in the pink muu muu

ps. In my defense, I have actually been in 2 different muu muu’s not just the one.

——————————————–

Dear Furry Ladies,

Love you!  Like A LOT.  I do.  But WTF are you eating outside that makes your breath smell that way?  Whenever either of you come up to me for cuddles and kisses, I have to breath through my mouth for fear I might lose my lunch!

No need to point out that it is my responsibility as your Mommy to brush your little canine teefies.  Time to go to the Doggie Dentist me thinks.

Love you but your mouths are rotten,

Mommy

——————————————–

Dear Starbucks,

I love you.  With.All.My.Heart.

*swoon*

Slowly giving you my kids college tuition,

Daily White Chocolate Mocha Addict

——————————————–

Dear Hubby,

Have fun on yet another of your leaving-me-alone-with-the-house-and-baby-and-furry-friends-to-escape-on-vaca trips this weekend.  Am I the coolest wife ever to let you always take these fun trips while I sit at home alone with like one day off in a year?  You better be nodding your head and saying “SOOOO the coolest wife EVER!” right now.

I better get a frickin t-shit,

The bestest, coolest, most kick ass (seriously) wife on the planet

ps. Hope the Steelers kick some serious Raiders ass on Sunday.  Wave a Terrible Towel for me, since I won’t be there with you.

——————————————–

Dear Christmas Tree,

Oh how I love thee.  Mommy made you into serious perfection.  I love to stare at you and stare some more.  Purrrrrrrrrrty.

Love,

Your AMAZING decorator

I’m Late Random Thoughts

randomtuesday

If you want to play along with Random Tuesday Wednesday Thoughts, go here to get the widget and add your name to Mr. Linky.

~~~~~

So I’m LATE!  Not like that, although I soooo wish.  I am late with Random Thoughts Tuesday!  I just was too lazy busy to get to it yesterday.  Actually, I had a blog half started but never completed it.  Procrastinate much?

Are you TOTALLY stoked for the holidays?!?! I am! I love this time of year!  The Thanksgiving, The Christmas, The New Years.  YAY!!!

Thanksgiving was GRUB, and of course it helps that I am a FAB cook.  The meal came out beautifully and I am still amazed at myself for being able to do it all without feeling even a tiny bit stressed about it.

We got all of the inside decorations done.  The tree and all the pretty shiny lights and stuff everywhere.  I will take pictures this week and show you, since I KNOW you all have nothing better to do than look at pictures of my house all done up in it’s Sunday Christmas Best!  *snicker*

As you can tell, I am sort of in bitch mode right now.  Not sure why, it just happened.

As far as the outside lights, we haven’t put them up yet.  And by “we” I of course mean Hubby.  Cause of several reasons.

One… It’s outside of the house.  And this means, the possibility of creepy crawly things dramatically increases outside of the home.  Not my bag baby.

Two… I can’t stand on a chair without getting sick.  This means that my chances of standing on a ladder and climbing up on the house are NON EXISTENT.

And Three… watching anyone else doing anything dangerous (ie: standing on a ladder) makes me anxious and bossy.  So in the case of poor Hubby, then I would be out there all “be CAREFUL!”, “Wait, that isn’t safe”, “do you really think you should put that there?”, “is that safe?”, “stop rolling your eyes at me!”, “I AM ONLY TRYING TO HELP YOU! WHY ARE YOU LOOKING AT ME LIKE THAT!” and so on.

Get it?  Yeah, yeah poor poor Hubby.  Moving on.

So you see why I don’t participate in the outdoor decorations?  But I of course want to see the lights on my house, so that means Hubby wins the honor of putting them up.  And lucky for me, he doesn’t complain about it.

And actually he does such a good job that the neighbors get jealous.  Here is a pic from last year.

We are the house on the left.  LOL

HAHA!! Seriously, can you imagine?  That is awesome!  Although I can’t imagine that dudes light bill!  Talk about overboard on the lawn ornaments! Sheesh!

The Fed Ex Guy just showed up, and for the 2nd day in a row he had to see my in my pink flowered MuuMuu.  Poor guy.  I have killed his sex drive for the better part of a week I would guess.

Are you searching for that perfect gift?  Not having a lot of luck?  This is a must have for those chilly winter days.  I am getting them for everyone in my family.

I need to get some editing done so that I can post some Daily Photo Blogs again.  I just haven’t had a chance.

Hubby got me a Nintendo DSi for Christmas!!  And I got it early.  Early as in, the day after Thanksgiving.  Schweeeeeeeeet!

It’s lots of fun, so I have been playing Brain Games (Not Mind Games, although that is fun too *wink*) and Puzzle games a lot.  I feel like an old lady though, trying to figure out how to get it going.  Give me a Pong or a  Nintendo and some Mario Bros. or Duck Hunt and I can kick some ass! But anything manufactured after 1987 is foreign to me.

OMG, do you remember Coleco?  Did you have one?  We did.  I used to play Mousetrap and Smurfs on mine.  LOVED those games.

Monkey is boycotting food again.  I think he is teething though because he is gnawing on his hands for the majority of the day now.  But yesterday I could only get him to eat a Tater Tot and an Apple.  I am so worried about this kid.  His dad and I love food! Why doesn’t he?  It’s weird.

Ok, now I am hungry after talking about food.  Haha!

Have a fantastic Wednesday!

Throw the Beer in the Lake Random Tuesday Thoughts

randomtuesday

If you want to play along with Random Tuesday Thoughts, go here to get the widget and add your name to Mr. Linky.

We went puttering around the mall on Sunday and came across a dude in a red suit.  So we thought we would see if Monkey wanted to sit on the strange guys lap and take a picture.  Sounds normal right?  HAHA

Monk did GREAT on Santa’s lap.  This Santa was the sweetest man!! Monkey went right to him!  It was really neat.  He wasn’t really dressed for the occasion but I did wipe the pizza off of his face before the picture, so that’s something at least, right? haha

Here is the picture.  I did edit the contrast and saturation a little bit.  You know me, I can’t help myself.  Besides, now it’s gobs better.  Trust me J

I was really surprised that he didn’t cry or anything.  He went right to him.

I am still debating on whether or not I want to tell Monkey there is a Santa.  I have this whole weird issue thing in my head with lying to my kid, even if “all the cool moms are doing it”.  I just want him to like the idea but not think that if he is “naughty” then the dude will show up with coal.  Ya know?

Thoughts?

~~~~~

I am making a Turducken for Thanksgiving.  Anyone ever had one?

I am changing it up a bit and leaving out the duck.  And the chicken.  *grin*

What? *blink*

That was funny.  *pbbbbt*

~~~~~

I think I know why people always say I have slapstick humor. Its because they want to slap me with a stick when I am trying to be funny. *shrug*

~~~~~

Another case of Hubby sleep-talking this week.  It always provides a giggle.  This one is sure to please…

Hubby (eyes still closed): “Throw it in the lake!”

Me (as usual, taken off guard): “Throw what in the lake?”

Hubby: “The beer!”

Me (stifling a giggle): “The beer?”

Hubby: “Yes.”

Me: “Umm… why would I throw beer in a lake?”

Hubby (clearly frustrated): “UH! Becaaaause it failed the breathalyzer!!”

Me (confused): “Wait… who failed the breathalyzer??”

Hubby (suddenly confused and calm): “umm… I dunno, I think the beer did”

Me (pushing for fun, heh): “Why did the beer take a breathalyzer?”

Hubby: “…………”

And he was out.  Lol

Good times.

~~~~~

Military helicopters in groups of six have flown over my house four times since I wrote this.  Why does this give me the heebies?

~~~~~

My dear friend Amanda entrusted me with her Grandmothers Spaghetti recipe.  We had it last night (Sunday night since I again wrote this blog a day ahead) and it was DELICIOUS!  But I really wish she had warned me about the effect it would have on all of us.  It sounded like there were 2 motorboats in my bed last night.  And there was another one in Monkey’s bed too.  I know because I kept hearing it on the monitor.

~~~~~

Speaking of my ass (yet again) it’s healing really well.  You know what happens when you start to heal?  You start o itch.  Like crazy!! I just wanna stick both my hands in my pants and scratch my butt like crazy!!  But that would look funny and mostly likely elicit stares not to mention it would be the 2nd worst thing I have done this week.  The first of course was luring that spider into my pants with my super inviting, sexy fanny.  Hows that for TMI?  Wait, this isn’t TMI Thursday you say?  *grin*


What is random about your day?

*LOVE*

1204730991_efbe350954-300x285

This week I am going to look at the positives.  Today more specifically the things that I love.  THINGS not people.  You don’t really want me to make you a list of all the people I love do you?  That would be a LOT of reading.

I *LOVE* my DVR.  Because without it I would go mad.  Thank goodness it is HUGE because lately I am a total slacker and am way behind on… EVERYTHING.

I *LOVE* the talking dog Dug in Up.  And now I am obsessed with adopting a dog and naming him Dug.  Don’t tell Hubby.  Hubby if you are reading this… he followed us home.  What was I supposed to do? *grin*

I *LOVE* my wedding rings.  And I especially love when someone comments about them.  They are so sparkly and still make me grin from ear to ear.  And even though I say “aww, shucks, thanks” and pretend to brush off the compliment, I am really thinking “oh yeah, you wish you were me right now, don’t you, booya!” *blink*

Shirt-Motorboat_240

I *LOVE* the word motorboat.  Because it always makes me laugh to say it or hear it.  I guess I’m just a kid at heart and can’t help but giggle.

I *LOVE* that I haven’t shaved my legs in three weeks and nobody has noticed.  Maybe I am trying to set a record.  What?

I *LOVE* my new shampoo.  When I get out of the shower, all I can smell is fresh celery.  Odd but refreshing.

I *LOVE* fuzzy socks.  But really, who doesn’t? Am I right?

I *LOVE* my house.  Right now I really love it though because it’s clean! *gasp*

I *LOVE* my dual monitors on my desk.  And I love that I am so spoiled that getting on the laptop makes me cringe because I am so damn spoiled.

I *LOVE* tattoos and can’t wait to get more.  It’s on my wish list fer suuure.

coffee_morning

I *LOVE* coffee shops.  Yummmmmeh!

I *LOVE* drive thru’s.  All sorts.  Drive thru Starbucks, drive thru food but especially drive thru liquor. *grin*

I *LOVE* my Tahoe.  One main reason is that when I am in the drive thru at Starbucks and the little red convertible thinks he can cut in line all I have to do is edge up a little and he knows that I could squash him like a bug.  And he of course backs off.  I feel tough.  Check out these guns.  *flexing muscles*  *giggle*  (ok, well maybe he was just letting me in because he was nice… either way I win, right? hah!)

What things do you *LOVE*?
