random Saturdayness

I just bagged up 3 Hefty bags of clothes that are now too big. It’s the opposite of why I’m usually bagging up clothes to give away.

My son said, “if I had 92 more dollars I’d have $100.” He’s such an optimist.


Today I discovered that Kashi Go Lean Crunch with flax and honey tastes like the old Sugar Crisp cereal.

Remember when Kellogg’s and Post could call cereal “Sugar” whatever. There was Sugar Crisp, Sugar Smacks, and one was called Sugar Frosted something or other, but I can’t remember what. Sugar Crisp was the best because its mascot was called Sugar Bear. Both Sugar Crisp and Sugar Smacks are now called something else – Golden Crisp and Honey Smacks. That’s supposed to make them sound healthier, but I’ll always know them as their sugary old names. You can’t fool me, Sugar Bear.

As a kid, I never liked super sugary cereals. Seriously, Cracklin’ Oat Bran was my favorite. That cereal is the bomb, yo.

Hold everything. South of Heaven, West of Hell is on. It’s the only Western I know of that stars Vince Vaughn. Vince Vaughn, Pee Wee Herman, Dwight Yoakam, Billy Bob Thornton, and the old Mr. Noodle from Elmo’s World on Sesame Street. Y’all, Vince Vaughn in a Western. It’s one of those “so bad it’s kinda awesome” movies. It’s a Western and there is a machine gun in the first 20 minutes of the movie. It’s a Western and a chick in the movie says “I bet you was real handsome when you got shot.” It’s a Western that is completely bizarre. It should be called South of Preposterous, West of Insanity.

Also, Dwight Yoakam should never take his hat off.

And as a director and screenwriter, Yoakam is a wonderful musician.

Did I mention his name is “Valentine” in the movie? It is.

I got a new vacuum cleaner. There were 420 parts to it. I dropped an attachement on my face and it hurt. After I got the thing together, I vacuumed my bedroom and managed to empty the canister into my lap instead of the bag I was attempting to put the dust and junk in. It was gross. And dusty.

Did I mention that I have terrible allergies? The dust did not help.

A guy in this movie says “gub’ment” for “government.” And Dwight’s deputy wears dresses. The deputy is a man.

I could go for some Crackin’ Oat Bran right now.



random stuff and things

I stepped on a pencil in my bedroom. One of the children left it there. It hurt as much as when I’ve stepped on a Lego piece, but not as much as when I stepped on the plug end of the vacuum cleaner cord.

My dog is driving me nuts. I have a love/hate relationship with her. I thought she was dying a few weeks ago, took her to the emergency vet and the vet did an ultrasound and some tests. She said Lucy either had cancer or some weird basset hound infection and put her on steroids. My dog is on steroids. I was told she might make it through the weekend. Fast forward to yesterday. Lucy is back to being a pain in the ass and drank out of the toilet last night. This morning I went to the laundry room to let her out ( she cannot be trusted to stay unconfined at night) and found she had pooped all over the place.

My middle child thinks if she uses a British accent we can’t understand what she’s saying.

I think my vacuum cleaner died.

Exclusive - Bradley Cooper Wears Tight Hair Rollers On Set

For some reason I need America to know that Bradley Cooper (BCoop to those in the know) got a perm.

Seriously, he is in pink rollers.

My vajayjay just doesn’t know what to think of this. It is in mourning for BCoop’s manliness.

Why can’t BCoop be on the new celebrity diving show? I mean, really. They pick a little person and Louie Anderson and a pageant girl. That’s a weird mix for ANY tv show.

Can you imagine the chit-chat during commercials?

I need a pedicure.

Disney princesses after “ever after”

Those of you from the old blog know that I love Disney movies and really love making fun of Disney movies. I found this video from Jon Cozart and it’s pretty brilliant.


“All Day Today” is currently my favorite song.

the lonely blogger



This is about right. But this lonely blogger closes her laptop before going to bed. I mean, really.
