Just for fun: the random, useless announcements thread!
The reality of the trip only hit me today: haircut, oil change, check the tires, fix up my mp3 player (for an 8-hour drive in a truck with no A/C), tons of things to check up on at the hospital. Oh, and, uh, packing too!
But I won't have a beeper for the first time in three years since my promotion. And for the first time in four years I'll have a vacation longer than seven days.
One day, for no reason at all, I just started 'moon walking' across my kitchen floor while my 20-something daughter was talking to me (complaining) about something... I'd never done it before, didn't even know I could!
I don't know what possessed me! I just moon walked right out of the kitchen and around the living room/ dining room.
Daughter said " What ARE you doing!??" I said " What's it look like- moon walking!"
I moon walked everywhere all over the house for at least an hour! LOL I must have looked ridiculous! A 54 year old fat woman moon walking around her house and laughing like an idiot....
1) Made my first loaded cycling tour this past weekend w my girlfriend. Pics may come soon.
2) Finally got accepted into the Rehabilitation Assistant diploma program! I was on the wait list, but got a letter of acceptance the other day! Starting in Sept.
So I bought two scones with one scoop each, instead of one scone with two scoops.
That got me one extra cone for free!
What a night out!
Did I suffer my usual cramps?
Damnit, yeah, I did. Big time.
Was it worth it??
Sound so good, I may go
. . . oh they stopped . . .
phew . . . nearly was deBuddified . . .
saved by the non-bell.
edible like that...... Right out of the water.
My daughter and I picking them out of the mud,
standing next to the bell tower and sharing something new together. They
were yummy right out of the heads, and we ate about 3 hand fulls. What a
The other day, I sent this to my dad [attached]. My sister sent something too, but I can't post it here-- just a little off-color, but funny. My dad needs all the laughs he can get right now!
Thank you for a few special friends here who have given me support and a compassionate ear regarding my dad's illness. You know who you are! :wave:
All the best to your dad. Have a wonderful visit and extra hugs and laughs for all.
My random comment of the day is that I have spent much of the past 24 hours in random tears over the videos and photo essays of our first day of marriage equality in MN. SO SO much happiness in the eyes and faces of SO many people. How anyone can declare that to be wrong is beyond me. I pray for equality for all, every day. 2 minutes until my 5 year wedding anniversary, and for many others, their 24 hour anniversaries. I am seriously just over the moon happy. If joy could burst out of my body it would be happening right now.
Of course, that could be the pie I ate earlier. But I'm pretty sure it's just happiness
Both computers have locked their DVD's and become temperamental (so anthropomorphic with my hardware). Fixable. But may sulk for a while
Good luck to Dads and Cats and everyone undergoing real difficulties :bawl:
Anyway, Today is my birthday and again THANK You Mom and DAD (yes, they're still here with us).
I love love LOVE my hubby and 3 grown kids, and my whole damn crazy ass family!! "
Love all you crazy ass guys too! :: grin ::
OM YA HA HUM
I promise -- I was not drunk! nor high! when I bubbled over like that last night! LOL
It was late, I was overtired and couldn't sleep.... and anyway, I really DO love you crazy kids. ;-)

"Daddy, actually you should go to the Temple....it's a good place".
I can no longer eat Blue Bunny brand Banana Split ice cream!!
The first time I had an attack of mid-night stomach and intestinal cramps, along with nausea, vomiting, and hearing the most god-awful, unnerving, whining and moaning for half the night, (that would be me) -- I didn't connect it to the consumption of named ice cream an hour or two earlier.
BUT... after a controlled (and dangerous) experiment, and further research into the individual ingredients list on said package, it is to be concluded -without a doubt- that the chopped cashews and peanuts incorporated in the Banana Split flavor renders this ice cream severely detrimental to my stomach and intestinal health.
That is All.
I am SAD.
PS; Thankfully, Blue Bunny does make a few other flavors that are equally deee-lishus...
I must be losing my fucking mind.
or it's just another day at the office
Anyway, I do totally sympathize-- I had to go through it a few times before figuring out that the problem lay with the ice cream. Whimpering in pain in a fetal position on the floor next to the toilet. Yep.
And the rest of me doesn't match...particularly the wee paunch.
The size of it, and the lines of his robes, his facial expression (THE most important feature of a Buddha statue), was perfect; everything about it I just loved.... well, except for the color....
I got my eldest daughter this same statue for her birthday back in Feb. When it arrived I was very pleased with the gorgeous all over rich burgundy undertone it had.
I expected mine would be the same. It wasn't. These are hand-mixed resin statues, so coloring isn't exactly the same from statue to statue. Mine came out of the box a dark, lusterless, blackish color. The color of unburned charcoal.
But then I got a brainstorm. Searched for and found special metallic powdered paints, (That one applies by hand rubbing) and customized my statue myself ... I used a copper/bronze for his body and an 'antique' silver for his cap. The robe is the original color.
I LOVE the way it came out!
