As the famous "Dooce" once said - Deck the Motherfucking Halls

We didn't get any snow. Its all rain. I'm very disappointed. I stayed up late like a 4 year old, waiting for the snow, that would never come. Damn weathermen. I had the hot chocolate ready and everything. with little marshmellows.

and I hurt my back AGAIN. and I have no money. I will never have any money. ever.

Don't talk to me today. I'm cranky.

Brrrrrr
It was 24 degrees outside this morning. This is highly unusual for us in November - AND there is a chance of snow tonight! Weeeee! I love the snow! I'm sitting here eating a nice warm bowl of oatmeal while trying to remember that the long weekend is over and I need to work now. Poo. I think I was asleep more than I was awake Sat. and Sun., but come Monday it still feels like I need toothpicks to keep my eyelids open. Go figure.

Question: How do you gracefully remove potato chip crumbs from your bra when the bathroom is occupied?

Answer: You do not. There is no dignified way to reach down into your bra and remove tiny barbecued potato chip crumbs in public. I speak from experience.

Poker

Once upon a time, it was a boring Friday night at Crazydogmama's house. She and her husband are so pitiful that they decide to play Poker (in the famous garage) with just each other because they apparently have no friends. What was even more pitiful was that Crazydogmama lost and had to do the dishes. (its either sexual favors or who has to clean something...) ANYWAY, I have to tell you that Poker is worse than frigging Monopoly. It takes FOREVER. I think we went through 3 packs of ciggarettes (we're quitting! I swear!) and a case of beer (we're NOT quitting! I swear!). You know its bad when you start betting the black chips when all you have in your hand is a pair of fucking 2's - just to speed things along.

I've been learning Texas Hold 'em, too, which is cool - except that I keep forgetting to flip over the cards when I'm dealing, and keep WANTING to flip over the cards when I'm NOT dealing. (that could be the beer, though.)

Yeah, its looking like Saturday night will be Crazydogmama's revenge...hmmmm....what will be at stake tonight?

Keep your eyes peeled...

...for Montana, Idaho and Utah. Some unusual earthquake activity. I am thinking it is all pre-cursory. Also note the activity offshore Oregon/Northern Cali. Full moons are always good indicators.



More importantly - Happy Birthday to me last Saturday. I got lots of good stuff and it feels great to be 29 AGAIN! LOL.

Halloween ’05 – Drunken Disco Bliss of the 70’s

Don’t even ask – Jim was dressed up as Captain Spaulding from “House of 1000 Corpses”. (Well, SHIT the bed!) He rationalized that the movie plot took place in the 70’s – so it was an allowed costume at the 70’s-themed party. Hehe. I personally liked the “Bob Ross Happy Trees” T-shirt:



Here is the ever-so-famous self portrait I am known to take of the upper-half of my head:



Jim trying on my wig. Isn’t he lovely?

Baby Boom

Everyone seems to be having frickin' babies right now. Bloggers, neighbors, celebrities, everyone! Its like nature is on baby-binge. I don't know whether to congratulate you all - or send my condolances. I know, I know, a baby is a gift from God, but STILL. Its freaking me out! Everywhere I look there are baby heads! I must tell you, though, that I had empathy-heaves for you this morning. I woke up and had dry heaves for like, an HOUR. This does not mean I'm pregnant (don't get all excited) - and to respond to what I know is the first thing coming to your mind - NO IT IS NOT POSSIBLE THAT I AM PREGNANT. I am not going to explain why that is impossible - y'all are smart. Well, most of you. Figure it out.

Anyway, I've been trying to put up Halloween pictures, but blogger is being difficult and won't let me, so you'll just have to wait.

Bird Flu. Aren't You Excited?
It is so much fun to hear on the news EVERY NIGHT how the Bird Flu is coming to get us. (Read this) I'm thinking the next time I get the sniffles or a cough, I am going to completely panic and drive 400mph to the hospital.

Angry Crazydogmama (If you don't like cuss words, stop NOW)

So what the hell is this new trend (that makes me want to chain them up and throw them in my crawlspace) where older kids come to my door on Halloween WITHOUT A FUCKING COSTUME ON - not even saying 'trick or treat' and then demanding candy from my hard-working self? My first reaction was to stick the candy up their sweatshirt-with-a-hood wearing asses - but then I thought that that might get my new car egged or keyed or something. After pondering this a bit, I decided to just give them a piece of candy - but now I'm just pissed at myself. Crazydogmama is supposed to be fearless. I am fearing these little fuckers!!! Damnit to hell!!! I think action needs to be taken. The teenagers in my neighborhood need to be taken down a couple of pegs. Hmmm. What to do. I'm thinking - the next time one of them pisses me off, I'm going to voice it. Then, I'm gonna stay up on my roof all night with a pellet gun and pick off the first motherfucker who comes near my house.
