WTF Wednesday, Paris the Princess of Por…..

This story came across my news feed yesterday:

ring too small

I have to admit, I wanted that story to turn out differently.  I mean, I was glad that she broke up with the guy but I secretly wish she would have lost the weight and then rejected him, kept the ring, and then left him for his best friend, who was also his therapist.  Right?  Like an amped up episode of Khloe Kardashian’s Revenge Body that you might actually want to watch.

Paris  for Princess

I tried to write something about this but I just couldn’t stop laughing.  I’m still laughing so if you want to read it just click on it.  I’m over here hysterical right now and I just can’t even.

Last week when we were in Nokomis, MacGyver and I had planned on building a nice storage shed and moving the laundry room to the cabana so that we could put in the second bathroom.  We’ve already contacted a plumber and taken the steps to go from well water to city water so it was just a matter of getting all the things moved around.

We have a lot of shit.  Rather, MacGyver has a lot of shit.  Tools, equipment, various things he needs to work on the boat, cars, house and etc.  What we really need is a garage but then, we have one of those in Clearwater, why do we also need one in our vacation home.

the hoard is real

Oh yeah, that’s why.

Anyway, since we had a building to build we needed some equipment.  MacGyver and I like to go to garage sales because sometimes you can find some of the things you might need.  While we were out driving around we saw a house for sale near our neighborhood and we stopped to look at it.  It needed a bit of work but we liked that it was laid out just like the Englewood house and was bigger than the Nokomis house but it was on a good canal with good boating access.

MacGyver said if we could just move our house to where that house was and leave the garage and boat lift and put in a pool it’d be the perfect house.  We both laughed, and then as if lightning struck us both at the same time we knew what we had to do.  We bought the house.

MacGyver sure does know how to get out of home improvement projects!

And then it occurred to me…

new running routes

They accepted our offer this week and now we just have to sell our other house, and fast.

WTF, it’s Wednesday and we just bought a house y’all!

What’s the last big purchase you made?

If you could have a vacation home anywhere in the world where would it be?

WTF Wednesday, the Real Up and Humming

I’m sure most of you have seen the news reports of the ass hats dragging a shark behind their boat and laughing.  The FWC is investigating all of the men involved and for many of us who live or own homes in Sarasota County, we’re pretty happy about it.  We’ve seen many pictures of one of the offenders harming animals other than sharks so it seems to be a pattern, to me anyway.

MTV has a new show out called ‘Siesta Key’.  It premiered on Monday but the watch party that was planned in Siesta Key was cancelled when it was reported that one of the cast members admitted to being friends with one of the people in the shark dragging video and death threats were received.  For the record, that cast member has stated that he is not in the video nor did he take part in it.

What I find interesting about the show is that cast member Alex’s father, Gary Kompothecras, (of 1800 Ask Gary, yeah that guy) is the person responsible for this show because he thought that his son and all of his friends were interesting and should be on TV.  So he did what all good father’s with ample means do, he hired a producer to follow them around.

Now, because I have a home in Nokomis and visit the Sarasota area often, I already knew about the show and had heard all of the rumors about it when it was filming.  I fully admit that I planned on watching it just to see how it represented the area and also to see just how interesting the cast members are, you know, because if you Ask Gary he will tell you they are.

If you haven’t seen the show, don’t watch it for their personalities, you’d find a more interesting one in a stale piece of bread.  Also, I think it’s important to set the record straight because Gary and the producers would like you to think that this is the real Siesta Key.  In fact, they say so in the opening.

In reality, there are around 6500 or so actual residents on Siesta Key and the median age is around 62.8.  Lemme show you the REAL Siesta Key:

Old People live in Siesta Key

OK, this is not actually Siesta Key but you get the point.

If you’re at all interested in hearing how a former cast member of another realty show feels about this new show, check out this hilarious recap on Cosmo with Spencer Pratt.  I never thought I would say that in a million years.

WTF Wednesday, from the Real Up and Humming.

WTF Wednesday, please don’t swallow me!

Remember a few weeks ago when I showed you a sinkhole that had opened up near Tampa, about 45 minutes from my house?  Well yesterday I went to the bank and I noticed a huge hole on the side of the road, exactly 1.4 miles from my house.  I didn’t think too much about it other than damn, that’s a big assed hole.  I should avoid it because I’d probably fall in.

sinkhole location

Well, this morning I went for a walk and I heard a helicopter in the neighborhood.  Typically it’s the military but this morning I noticed it was a news helicopter.  After my walk, I walked the dogs and the helicopter was still there along with another one.  I decided that I would turn on the news as soon as I got home to see if there was an accident.

Nope.  No accident.

Sinkhole or Depression

Remember the big assed hole, yep, thar she is!


If y’all didn’t already know, a sinkhole is one of my biggest fears.  Like ever.  And 1.4 miles away is really freakin close.  Currently they are calling it a depression but that’s what they called the last one too, you know, right before it swallowed a few houses and boats and pools and such.

The one near my house is already 3 feet wide and could swallow a person, I’d say that’s a sinkhole.

No problem there, I’ll avoid it til the end of time if need be.

MacGyver has to go see some clients this morning so he’s going to drive by it.  I told him to take a picture.  He thought I would want to go with him to see it but I said ‘nah, I’m curious about the Bermuda Triangle too but I ain’t about to go look at it!’

WTF, it’s Wednesday and I’m clumsy, I don’t need to go walking by any holes!
