Default Saturday Afternoon Cow-toons

I wonder if it's all right to post a published cartoon? Well, maybe I can find a link to it. Ah, here we are: Click Here

Well, DH and DD enjoyed the Janis Ian concert. She was actually the opening act for somebody else, who they didn't like as well, Patty Larkin or something. Sounds like poor concert planning to me. Ian got a standing ovation and the headliner didn't! They didn't get home until about midnight and now DD has a sore throat. Bummer.

I watched Zoolander and learned that there is more to life than being really really really fabulously good-looking.

Anyone see Al Gore on 20/20 and David Letterman last night? If he's not running for Pres. in 2004 I'll eat my Beanie Baby Kiwi bird.

Gotta go surf for Christmas presents

I tried to post on here earlier and it wouldn't take. Testing now. ok it worked.

I booked a cruise for ds and me. THENNNNNNN Herbie (whose car I'm driving while he sells mine) told me he does not want me to drive his car to Tampa. Well, he said to New Orleans but Tampa is further. He emailed me that message and he printed it out and left it on his counter for me with handwritten PLEASE READ so in his mind he told me before I booked the cruise. I was at his house picked up stuff and looking for Zach's traveler's checks which Herbie found and I'm so glad.

That's it. It goes to Cozomel and Belize and Grand Caymans. Seven days. Send cash.

Posession is 9/10th of the law. Right? Just pretend you didn't get his email until you get back home. I think a cruise is just what the Dr. ordered for you. Anyway Dr. Wabbit would have ordered it if I'd thought of it.

Kiwi, I think you need to book yourself on that cruise too.

A cruise for Christmas sounds wonderful. I can't wait until we can do stuff like that for the holidays. Drive the car to wherever you're going and have fun. Who cares what Herbie says.

Kiwi, I'm glad things have blown over. I don 't understand why anyone would want to go to a Janis Ian concert. She was such an upbeat girl in the seventies. I always thought she was a bigger name than Patty Larkin, who is a countryish singer who wishes she could morph into Emmylou Harris.

My brother is in NJ to visit our mother. He keeps trying to dump her because he seems to find sick people who can barely talk, walk, eat and hear boring. I made him take her to church this morning. Tomorrow he is taking her to the casinos. I'm making pork and sauerkraut for dinner. My mom's pick. She knows he's a vegetarian. It's a comfort to know that no matter how sick she is, she can still get revenge on someone who hasn't visited her through two years of cancer and Parkinson's.

My DH is working all day today. Isn't he a rat? I put up with 8 sisters-in-law ALL THE TIME, and he bags on me. He called me on Friday and gave me the "I have good news and bad news routine" The bad news was that he has to work today, the good news? He has to work today. He laughed for 10 minutes. It was a weak joke and not worthy of 10 minutes. I would get him back, but he wants to cut out all family occasions. This year we are staying home for Christmas. First year. I can't imagine what we'll do with the whole day ahead of us. I've never spent Christmas with fewer than 50 people in my whole life. Granted, they are usually 50 people I don't really like, but that is just a detail. They are noisy and good cooks. The food is much better when you go to a big party. DH and the kids are not heifers, like me, and do not see Christmas day as one long buffet.

I have lots of stuff to do. If you play your cards right, maybe I'll post my cleaning list for you. You can' only hope.

OK, you lucky ducks, here is my list. The house is 90% decent, but there are niggling details in each room. So, I will start in the public areas and work my way around.
1. shift wash
2. Get all shoes out of foyer
3. clean mirror in there
4.dust
5. vac
6.get junk out and tidy
7. bath
8. vac
9. hang pics that fell in LR( don't buy those 3M nailess hangers, they don't work permanently)
10. get 10 pieces of junk out.

OK that's a start. I know I'm a bore, but I'm a lazy bore and that is a bad combination.

1. shift wash (you wash in shifts?)
2. Get all shoes out of foyer (how long will this take?)
3. clean mirror in there (oh please!)
4.dust (no details .. no points)
5. vac (on Sunday?)
6.get junk out and tidy (junk is where? you have a junk room? how am I to emulate you without all the info?)
7. bath (you should take that first)
8. vac (see number 5)
9. hang pics that fell in LR( don't buy those 3M nailess hangers, they don't work permanently) (3M is scotch tape)
10. get 10 pieces of junk out (fly says 17 or 27 or some 7 number in that range. Can't you live up to that?)

DS and I are going to go see OK-LA-HO-MA today. Yee HAW!! First we're going to church. Then, we'll try to find a piece of beach to collect sand for his science project which he is doing not me. then YOU'RE DOING FIND OKALAHOMA OKLAHOMA OK!!!!

You know I HATE science fair crapola. This kid who AlWAys wins and who always did since Kindergarten was asked what his project is this year. "I don't know. Whatever mom and dad come up with." Barf

Me again. Well, I didn't re-hang those pics because I can't find any pic hangers, except those 3M things that really don't work.
I am sad that no one is up this am to keep me company. Now I am going to get the kids to clean. They will do kitchen and family room while I do dinner stuff.
After that, I will:
1. .shift wash
2. get dressed
3. clear hall by laundry room
4. shift wash again.
5.Do something with lovely fall displays that were knocked down during yesterday's storm
6. put dinner in
7. make sure I have everything I need for dinner
8. Go to store to get forgotten items
9. do something about junk on ledge between kit and family room
10 relax and be ready for day with unpleasant family members

Somebody post and keep me company or I will make you fatter. XXOO

I demand reports on winning science projects. You will give details on winning kid's project, not honest kid's project.
I did all that stuff listed above. Flyhag does feel that one should dispose of 27 items, but there were not 27 items of junk in LR, so I did 10. It was a success. If you don't look in any closets, my room, laundry room, basement or garage, this place looks pretty good. No one belongs in those places so they deserve what they get if they snoop.
I didn't rest. I am going to do that now. I LOVE OK LA HO MA I hope they skip that cheesy ballet they stuck in the middle of the movie. It makes me mad everytime I see it.
The Music Man was on TV last night. I am a sadder but wiser girl.
Now I'll nap. Where is everyone else? Only Peaches will not blow up to 200 lbs. The rest of you are cursed until you post.
buh bye

Default You're both wrong

It's multiples of 9 -- you can pick up 9 things or 18 or 27. Lush, you have picked up 1 too many, now you have to go back and get 8 more or the Feng Shui police will get you.

Here's my list:[list=1][*]Get up after noon[*]Take large quantities of ibuprofin[*]See if DD feels any better[*]Check email, log on to see what fat chix are doing[*]Nag at DH about not getting airline tix yet[*]Drink lots of coffee[*]Empty the dishwasher **optional[*]Think about dinner. Briefly[*]Watch TV all evening[*]Pray for more snow -- so far 2+ inches[/list=1]

From this, you will conclude that my house is in pristine condition.

That's pretty funny.

Truth is it's such a dump I can't see any point in ruining my Sunday by doing anything about it.

Kiwi

Peaches is working on her Christmas displays. She is going to display herself on board, festively eating 12 meals a day, while her DS makes the rounds chatting up hot chicks in bikinis.

Lardfest is not for 2 weeks Bagzer. Late this year. I have already stocked up on French Fried Onions and Cream of Mushroom Soup so that I can be prepared to make the only cooked dish I can be trusted with by the in-laws -- You know, Green Bean casserole. Although, come to think of it, this year my sis-in-law will be out of town so I could probably branch out if I wanted to. Maybe MIL will let me mash some taters. We will be entertaining a guest from England. I think I'll ask her if she'll make Toad in the Hole.

Default You all need me so badly

because you are all so lame.

Winning science projects have nothing to do with the experiment, idea, procedure, conclusion. They are all about how pretty MOM MAKES THE BOARD! So get some blue spray paint and lightly go here and there until it looks like a sky with clouds.

Cruise will indeed cover Christmas day.

I saw that Kiwi has posted with the sissies. She is such a whiz. One day, in a private email, Wabby told me that she is smarter than Kiwi than I think not. Kiwi reigns over all us in terms of leaving household out the door and learning computer stuff. This is a compliment Kiwi. really.

The ballet was in the play. I am so old and uncultured that I think ballet is stupid. It's like ice skating crap. It's pretty but they only do four or five things over and over and over and over and over.

You've all got to stop this talk about displays and Christmas and even Thanksgiving. It's making me hyperventilate. Lush, I know what you mean about spending Christmas with 50 ppl who drive you nutz. Even though we do it every year, and DH whines the whole day and threatens to just stay home by himself, and our kids only show up long enough to eat, it just wouldn't be Christmas without it. Besides, I think it's really tacky to show up at my parents house on Christmas Eve for the annual passing out of the Christmas Check, and then not show up on Christmas day for the family dinner.

We're doing Thanksgiving dinner at our house. My parents will still be in Arizona, and DH thinks it would be nice to have dinner at home. Of course he doesn't cook or do dishes, so he hasn't got a clue what this means.

DS's girlfriend's mom and stepdad are getting divorced, after an evening of the step father being arrested for spousal abuse, then his friend bailed him out & he promptly went back home and got arrested again. The GF has spent most of last week either working or hanging out at our house crying. The big problem is that GF's mom has moved back home w/ her mother, where they have made it clear that they really don't have room for this 18 yr old girl, but she doesn't make enough money to live on her own. So she has stayed at our house for the last week, but I told DS that this can not be a permanent solution. What a mess. I really don't want DS to feel pressured into moving in with her, or God forbid, marry her. He's way to young.

Everybody knows that Kiwi is smarter than just about anybody, Peaches. Even me. Yesterday my sister told me she had gone shopping. I asked her why she had the day off work. She told me it was Sunday. Duh. Apparently I'm not too bright, and losing more brain cells everyday.
