Pickled Egg Fiasco

OK...
I know I've been a little sporadic on the posts as of late, but I promise, once summer (yeah, I use that term loosely to describe the 3 months of rain and gloom that we've had) ends, I'll post more regularly.

Anyways, we went on a little road trip out to Viking, yes, that is an actual town and no, its not nearly as cool of a place as it sounds.  So this is what we did to occupy our time...and yes I also use the term "we" loosely because never ...even hammered out of mind...would I do this.

He walked away with $190 a kool-aid juice box, half and apple juice and a pair of safety glasses....Yeah...I wouldn't do that for double that...but hey, I'm not really into living dangerously a la pickled egg juice...but what do I know, I'm a square.

Would you do that for money....?!?

The Rainbow Chasers

Its raining here...again.


I swear that it rains at least 5 times a week as of late. Its starting to make me wonder if that jibber jabber about Noah and the Ark was really real. I guess I'll know when the animals start coming out of the woodwork in pairs. Anyways, with all this rain, one would think that lots of rain = lots of rainbows.  If that's the case, then I think I've found my calling...although I don't know if I'm cool enough to join this gang.  Although I'm sure I've got a fanny pack laying around here somewhere.

Yeah, the rainbow chasers are sort of cool, but everyone knows the big bucks are in finding the leprechauns.

A Slippery Nipple

So, this bar tab from Iron Maiden in Norway has made its rounds on the Internet...

And there is quite a bit of uproar over this whole slippery nipple thing...

well quite honestly, I'm not even sure what the hell a slippery nipple is...and since I'm assuming that its a drink due to this being a bar tab I've ruled out these:
(since apparently this is Sarah Burge the world record holder for plastic surgeries...not to judge, but I would've thought that the £539,500 she spent on plastic surgeries would've bought some perkier boobs, but hey...just saying....and btw I'm betting that plastic boobs have the propensity to be slippery...hence a slippery nipple?!?  OK...never mind.)


But alas, I had to look it up (yes, I know, I've been waiting to say alas for a century or two...just wait until I pull out huffenpuff...I'm just waiting for a good excuse to use it.)

Apparently a slippery nipple (at the bar) is a shooter with Bailey's Irish Cream and Sambuca...well you had me until Sambuca.  In fact just to prove to you all how devoted I am to my blog, I was going to make one, but I am out of Bailey's.  Although for some bizarre reason I have plenty of Sambuca....?!  Which trust me, is bizarre.  I have some Kahlua, but it just won't be the same. 

I'm not sure which thought is more bizarre:
Who the hell named that shooter the slippery nipple?
or
Iron Maiden is still popular in Norway?!

P.S.  To those of you who guessed on Monday's post....its supposedly a picture of my husband putting on his sunglasses ...so Kudos to Pennyclad for being at least half right!

What do you see?

Just a quick post, because I'm busy entertaining this week.

I thought that I'd leave you guys with a little artwork from one of my spugnuts...

see if you can tell what it is.

I'll give you one hint, and then I'll give you the answer on Wednesday....

HINT:  It's my husband...or so beetlebum #1 claims.
 














HAPPY GUESSING!!!

On another front:

Well I 'm sad to report that there are obviously some die hard Joey Lawrence fans. I didn't take that kind if extreme obsession crap into consideration when writing my last post...so I've lost a few followers. I hope that they are content in their own lives with their Joey Lawrence love-dom...but if I were you I wouldn't be singing it from the mountain tops...but hey...who listens to me anyways. I suppose if you are comfortable with that you should go for it....right?   As for the rest of you....thanks for sticking around through the trash on Joey day.  I mean he gyrates against a brick wall...I just can't take that seriously.

Don't Bother With Another CD

I'd like to say that I have an eclectic taste in music.

Really, I like a lot of different kinds of music....and I happen to still like and listen to most of the crap I listened to in the 90's(Don't judge).  My iPod holds practically a zillion songs and today I put it on itunes DJ and just let it play whatever. 

Thats when I was reminded of this little gem....that I apparently liked enough to download (keep in mind that there wasn't itunes in '95, so obviously I downloaded this crap in the last 4 years or so....although for personal embarrasment sakes, I'm going to blame a sibling...you decide which one.)



All I can say is ......


go ahead...press play.


(ok...that was probably the best part of this post....go ahead, you know you want to press it again.)

Yeah...and if you think thats bad, apparently he has decided to release a new album sometime next year

and I'll hop aboard the crazy train and quote him....

"... I'm making a brand new record that will drop early next year. It is right there with the first Justin Timberlake's first CD. I haven't done an album since 1997, but it sold six million copies and fans have always asked me for more. And I would not have waited this long and gone down this path again if I didn't think we had something." source  (yeah, I know...it doesn't quite make sense with the whole 'first Justin Timberlake's first CD' thing...maybe, like many a child star he found his way to the bad stuff..or maybe the Yahoo's at Yahoo misprinted it...ok...its probably the latter of the two.)



I'm going to help him out....and say...don't bother.  Those 6 million copies were sold to completely idiotic tweens/teens...and now we're all a bit older.  We totally reserve the whole going crazy over 80's/90's stars for New Kids on The Block.

I hope I'll have to eat my words...because I mean .... he was a total heart throb in the 90's....and if he wasn't such an idiot on 'Blossom', I would've had a super crush on him.  I mean he's no Jonathan Brandis or 90's Leonardo Dicaprio (you know, back when he was hot.)...and really he'll never even hold a flame to several of the NKOTB....but hey...I'm not stuck in the 90's. 

Wait a second...I've got to go...I accidently put my hypercolor shirt in the dryer.

Birthday Predictions

Woohoo

Its my birthday....its true...and since it falls on a Monday, its slightly less exciting. (just wait...next year I think its a Wednesday....I guess I'll have to have my holding 29 the weekend before..that way I'm technically still 29).... That, and because I have kidlets.  As all parents know, once you have to change shitty diapers on your birthday, they are never quite the same again.

Anyways,
I happen to share my birthday with several famous folks: (Actually there's alot more...but these ones were the most interesting)



1957 - Melanie Griffith, actress (Working Girl, Milk Money, Now & Then)
1963 - Whitney Houston, Newark NJ, singer (One Moment in Time, Bodyguard)
1964 - Brett Hull, Belleville Ont, NHL right wing (St Louis Blues, USA)
1968 - Gillian Anderson, Chicago IL, actress (X-Files)
1968 - Eric Bana, Australian actor
1974 - Tremayne Allen, tight end (Chicago Bears)

So if I happen to turn out anything like these folks....by the time I'm 50, I'll be a crack-addicted, alien searching, Australian hockey player with giant lips and a tight end.  Oh well as long as I have a tight end it can't be that bad...right?

Never mind, apparently its a football term....well scratch that plan, the rest of it doesn't sound so hot.


I had a longer post planned...but that damn scanner is acting up again...that's what you get when you make it get along with a fax machine and printer too...I swear scanners are the biggest anti-social bitch of the technological world.

A Few Alternatives for FML

You know when you are having one of those days, you know, the ones where you'd like to put FML (F*#@ my life) as your facebook status.  But of course, you don't, because only f*&%in idiots put that as their facebook statuses.

I really don't like the whole FML thing....yes, I'm sure that some of you have pretty shitty lives sometimes, but really...FML?!

I've decided there are a few better acronyms, you know, ones that wouldn't irritate me as much as FML.

TIR - Today is Retarded
WOD - Waste of a Day
(Generic...but superior to FML)

IAE - Idiots are Everywhere (really, that about sums up everyday that I'm pissed off...them freakin' idiots...- Although quick sidenote...I once knew this girl named Pam who said that everytime that she ran into someone who was thoroughly irritating her with their stupidity, she reminded herself, that there would always be someone around to pump her gas...try it, it can add a surprising amount of joy to an otherwise annoying situation.)

GDW - God Damned Wal-Mart (Also another reason I am frequently irritated....how the F#@* do you run out of booster seats....I mean really...I doubt that they flew off the shelves that fast...I swear if it wasn't for Ted the greeter {best greeter ever!} I'd seldom visit.)

HFH- Hangover from Hell - Also a rather popular reason for people to be down about their lives. (I'm hoping that this will be the case Saturday morning)

IDS- I'm a Dirty Slut - (well not me!!  But quite frequently that's why some girl has added FML to her facebook....well if you weren't such a tramp, your boyfriend wouldn't have dumped you....just tell us the truth...with a simple, yet effective IDS)

And as for me, well I don't think anyone could decipher the
SDDTDNEMAC
(Shitty day due to my dog nearly eating my aunt's cat)

Whats your new acronym....and what does it mean?

I'm ba-ack!

Alright...for those of you who noticed that I've been gone.

Its true.

I've been gallivanting across the country side from a family reunion to a trip to the mountains to see Butter Ripple Liquorlips.  I had good intentions of posting...but since there hasn't been a post...I guess you can assume what happened to my good intentions....I drowned them in wine.  (preferably white...but apparently, the later the evening gets, the less picky I am.)

I decided to make a quick pie chart to let you in on my activities for the past couple of weeks.

yeah....that about sums it up.

And the oddly hairy Indian woman was downright creepy.
