I feel compelled to post something for Thursday – I’m not doing the theme thing this week – forgot to sign up. Yeah, it’s been that kind of week – I think the appropriate word is scatterbrained.
May just be that I have cabin fever from all the bad weather. Although I did venture out into the frozen tundra today and it wasn’t bad – the worst part was my neighborhood.
Last night a Good Neighbor fired up his Super SnowBlower Deluxe Extreme for Big Kids and blew out a path around our mailbox (and that of the guy across the street) so the mailman (who I don’t like but that’s another story) could drive his funky little mailtruck close enough to actually get the mail into our mailbox. What a nice gesture – I called the Good Neighbor’s wife and said thank you and now I feel obligated to make something to take over there – but she’s the Housewife we all love to hate – she cleans, she bakes, she goes to the Wives Club meetings, she plants flowers that live – and I love her dearly, but anything I make will be substandard and no doubt dumped in the trash. I’m going to do it anyway as a gesture of neighborliness. I know what!!! — I’ll make some greeting cards for her – I bet she doesn’t do stamping (although she does a lot of sewing) – I’ll think of something.
Anyway life here is relatively quiet. I have nothing very funny to report except the way Bob Costas looks at the Olympics – what’s up with his eyes and his hair? He can’t seem to move his face – I think the doc tightened up the skin just a tad too much perhaps. And his hair was black and is slowly lightening up each time I see him. Is the dye washing out ya think? I got a little perturbed at some of his comments, too – he seemed to make a big deal of what other people were wearing — hello, Bob? Look at yourself first.
Nothing new on the EmmaLou front – she’s relatively quiet and being good and that in itself is a little frightening. Sort of like waiting for the other shoe to drop. Or paw in her case.
I’m still working on my collage challenge -hopefully I should finish Thursday coz I’m about ModPodged out. I was standing in the kitchen the other night with Devoted Spouse and I had dried ModPodge all over my hands and I started screaming about the blister on my finger and right in front of him I grabbed the skin (it was ModPodge) and started peeling it off and yelling and it totally grossed him out. I felt like I was about 8 years old and I liked it.
Speaking of DS he just brought me an English Muffin with cherry preserves on it. Whatta guy! I attended a class at church tonight and came home hungry – part of the problem is today is the first day of Lent and for Lent I have given up chocolate candy/cookies (coz I do that every year) and this year I have added something that will be difficult for me (because I think that’s the point) and that is I am giving up red meat for the next 40 days – yup – the carnivore is gonna do without red meat. Now I’ll be happy to report occasionally on how that’s working for me, but there is a distinct possibility you may figure it out by the tone of my upcoming postings.
Do you read blogs based on categories? I don’t but I bet others do. So for this post I think I’ll pick some weird categories just to see if I get anyone different and they read something they don’t expect. I’m really bored.
That’s it for me kids. I’ll try and be funnier later. For now I’m gonna go back to making fun of Bob Costas.
