There’s a card for that.

Just in case you aren’t sick of silly outtakes, here’s another shot from the famous photo shoot.  You know, the one where mom pretended to be Herb Ritz and I pretended to be Christie Brinkley but we’re both just really awkward….or at least I am.

the Undress

I’ve changed clothes right in the middle of the mall parking lot wearing the Undress and no one had a clue.  It’s genius.  Go get one.

Yesterday, we went to pick out a card for a friend of mine who recently had surgery and I was getting all kinds of pissed off at the poor selection.  There were over 5,000 cards available.  Four were in the ‘Get Well Soon’ section.  FOUR.  But they had all kinds of cards for ‘congratulations on your recent coming out’, ‘welcome to your new gender’, ‘sorry to hear about the loss of your partner’s pet’,(not your pet mind you, but your partner’s pet!)

What the hell? What happened to the typical Happy Birthday, Get Well Soon and Across the Miles cards?  Where did they go?  Of course, just as I was bitching up a blue streak we came across the mack daddy of all cards.  It said, ‘Running is an Accomplishment, Congratulations on your recent race’.

No way!

A running card!  An actually congratulations on your race card!  When did they start printing running cards?  And then I looked at Mom and said the better question is ‘why have you never bought me one?’

Has anyone ever bought you a congratulations on your race card?

Did you know they had congratulations on your race cards?



The race for behind, I’m winning!

I got my run in very early yesterday then walked the dogs and got right to work.  I have a project that was due on the first of April and I had given myself plenty of time to complete it and I was all ready to dive in and then that thing that always happens happened.


The client decided that she needed to move the date up two weeks and then another client decided that a module that they previously didn’t need on their site they now need, yesterday.

And if all that wasn’t enough to stress me out and give me minor heart palpitations, MacGyver was home yesterday and he wanted me to do quotes for him.   Oh, and did I mention that he was in the garage working on his motorcycle so he kept leaving his phone in the house which means his business line then rings over to my phone, so yeah, I was also answering calls for him yesterday and dealing with his clients.

so mad

Sometime around 3 in the afternoon the phones died down and I was finally able to start to get my work started and then someone rang the damn doorbell.  So MacGyver looks over at me from where he’s laying comfortably on the sofa and asks if I’d go answer the door.

you trying me

He re-thought that and then got up and answered it himself which was a good thing because I think I would have felt really shitty if I’d have yelled at the Girl Scout and her dad selling cookies from her little red wagon.

I never got any work done yesterday.   None.

So, that’s what I’m doing today and that’s why this is a short post.  I didn’t want to leave you without quality content though so I ask Boomer and Hank to contribute something.  Boomer was more than willing to contribute and offered up a couple of pictures.

Boomer bear

Hank, not so much.  Y’all know he needs more motivation.  I had to hold him and coddle him until he fell asleep and then take his picture.

I get royalty fees Peasants!

Such a spoiled one!

I’ll be back tomorrow once I get a little caught up.

Have a fabulous day!

How to live to 104

I was reading the typical ‘it’s a New Year, here are the things you should resolve to do’ article’s last night when I came across this article which oddly mentions all of the supplements that you should NOT take as they are bad for your cardiovascular health.  I found it to be quite interesting, especially considering all of the recent celebrity deaths due to heart attacks so I thought I would share the link with you.  Just click on the image below.

Yesterday I decided at the very last minute to make Chile Con Carne for dinner but then I realized that I didn’t have all of the things I needed to make it so I had to run to the Wal-Mart and while I was there I decided to go ahead and pick up some vitamins and supplements.

There was an older lady in the aisle and she was looking over all of the bottles and reading over everything and then she looked over at me and she asked me if I thought she should start taking a multi vitamin.



So, I politely told her that multi vitamins were a good thing but that really she should probably talk to her doctor about it.  I told her she should ask him if he thought it was a good idea.

She said she did mention it way back when and he did tell her it was a good idea when she was around 80 but that was about 20 years ago and she didn’t really feel like she needed them until she hit 101, and even then, only occasionally.



She didn’t look a day over 70 with a mind to match.  I kid you not.

I want whatever she’s having, times two!  She was incredible and in case you’re wondering, she just turned 104.  I asked her what her secret was and she told me that she didn’t have one.  There was no secret.  She said the only advice she could give me was to keep your stress at a minimum, drink lots of water, have lots of sex, laugh a lot, and drink a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar every day.

Is everybody on that apple cider vinegar train?  Because I feel like it used to be big a few years ago and then it leveled off and then lately it’s been a big deal again.  Maybe I should get on board but I just don’t know if I could handle the taste.  Blech!

Have you ever tried apple cider vinegar strictly for health benefits?

What about sex, ever had sex strictly for the health benefits?
