Are your eyes bleeding yet ?

Hello Kitty Air Purifier

Hello Kitty Hoover

Hello Kitty Coffee To Start The Day

Hello Kitty Breakfast Nook Hello Kitty Amuse Bouche

Hello Kitty Bedroom

Hello Kitty Family Room

Hello Kitty Curb Appeal

Thankfully, I doubt that there is any real chance that this will ever end up on HG TV. But then again , they do have " I Survived A Japanese Game Show " on ABC.

Don't get me wrong , the show has some completely hillarious moments..but I have to draw the line somewhere.

Sorry for all the gaps in the photo's


Aunty Pol

Does it come in blue ?

You really have to feel sorry for dogs that end up in Hello Kitty fanatic homes. Whether they are putting you in Hello Kitty dog clothes, placing a Hello Kitty muzzle over your nose, putting you in a Hello Kitty doghouse, placing a Hello Kitty head over your own or forcing you to get a Hello Kitty tattoo, life pretty much sucks all the way around. Of course, a Hello Kitty fanatic won’t stop there. When you old and you can no longer walk on your own, your owner will promptly embarrass you to no end by getting you a Hello Kitty dysplasia orthopedic brace:
Hello Kitty Dog Hip Dysplasia Orthopedic Brace

Thankfully, I can sleep easier at night knowing that the hubbs won't be asked to make this up.....it's weird enough at times to hear about their work as it is......and by weird , I mean droning on and on and on and on and on...ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

Sorry dear, it is what it is.

Happy Happy Joy Joy

The last of our " boys" is finally moving out of his parents lovely abode.
The Crazy Cajun's youngest child is getting married around October of 2010.
She is a lovely girl and I can't wait to see how all of this progresses.
Her family is by and large Hispanic and also a part of the Houston Police Department , some of which we met at the graduation ceremony .
This is going to be a hoot.
Given the size of the families , I'm glad I am not involved in the planning, though I know at some point my hubbs will be drafted.
Hzave a great week.

" Ethics ? We Don't Need No Stinkin Ethics "

You have to wonder if the Grand Old Partiers (GROPERS) in Harris county are just plain stupid when it comes to ethics reforms. Harris County Commissioners are looking at some simple ethics reforms such as voluntary registration by lobbyists (like voluntary jail time for sex offenders) or posting all financial disclosure forms online, or mandatory ethics training.Mandatory ethics training might have made Commissioner Jerry Eversole think twice before traveling around the country buying antique books, authentic cowboy chaps or a $25,000 antique pistol with his donors money, or spending a day golfing and working out on county time, but look what Eversole thinks about ethics reforms:

"I have had my problems, but my problems are getting worked out. This is putting something into the air that doesn’t need to be put there because the majority of Harris County government has been good."
Uh...like former Harris County DA Chuck Rosenthal who resigned? Or how about Ed Johnson of the Tax Assessor Collector's office? Or Paul Bettencourt who quit two weeks after being elected? How about other GROPERS like Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson, or State Senator Dan Patrick. Or State Representatives Rob Eissler and John Davis. All who have been fined tens of thousands of dollars by the Texas Ethics Commission.
Eversole should be the last to be talking. Over the last year and half he has spent over $40,000 in legal fees probably because of Wayne Dolcefino's three part investigation or the ethics complaint that was filed against him for using his campaign money for personal use.
The GROPERS of Harris County are about as interested in ethics reform as Sarah Palin is in joining the local Toast Masters Club. Ethics reform is just a talking point and campaign issue that keeps going and going and going. Just like the abortion issue, the flag burning issue, the immigration issue, and any other issue they do nothing about.
They are a bunch of do nothing party of GROPERS.

Aren't They Cute Playing Dress Up ?

Today's hilarity is brought to you by : http://www.notalwaysright.com/


Och, A Communal Kilt
Scottish Import Store Toronto, ON, Canada

(I work at a Scottish import store that specializes in kilts. We mostly rent them out for weddings.)

Me: “Okay, guys, you’re all fitted up. Everything will be ready for pick-up the Thursday before the wedding.”

Customer: “Guys, you know what we have to do, right? We have to go commando! No wearing anything under the kilt!” *to me* “That’s the way to do it, right?”

Me: “Well, gentlemen, we don’t have a policy on that one way or the other. Personally, though, before you decide, I’d advise you to take a moment and consider ALL the implications of the word…’rental.’”

Customer: “What? But…oh…oh! Ewww!”

Ok...This made me find a much better mood.

I really do hate it when the morning starts out the way this one did ...I really do .
It sets the tone for the rest of the day and I know that there is no chance of improvement so I found the above on the foodnetwork addicts blog and I just had to share . I love his reviews if the new season of NFNS ( Next Food Network Star ) because they are pretty much the same view point that I have.
Now , if you want really funny ....go over to TWOP ( www.televisionwithoutpity.com) and read read the recap of Bravo's new show , " Prep School Prep" or whatever the frak it's called.
It's soooooo appallingly bad that it makes anything MTV has ever or will ever air and or produce look to be of Masterpiece Theater quality..
Just sayin ............................
Have a great week, we're half way through it gang.
Aunty Pol

Twice Now !

You have been warned.
I love the fact that some of the people I work with and one in particular see nothing wrong with walking through the lobby area and saying nothing in reply after being greeted with a pleasant " Good Morning ."
Not once but twice.
Full eye contact.
Genuine Smile.
If I can make the effort on a day when we continue to actually set records with 100 + actual temps and now 30 days with out rain.....how lovely for you to look me in the eye and not once but twice not even have the simple courtesy to reply.
Very professional , I might add.
It just makes me want to try harder to be the polar opposite of that , pissed and yet engaging...patent pending y'all.
Have a great day and try to be nice to someone else, it costs you nothing after all.

Brownies Anyone ?

Ok..I know it's been a very long week and it's hotter than Satans Underoos , but this made me laugh my ass off all day.
It's been an okay week save for the fact that I suspect something is up with the MIL .She called me at work (!) to check a few things on a recipe that her child and I use A LOT .
Nothing unusual there save for the fact that she is not in the habit of calling my office and I am always on " RED ALERT " when she does.........with good cause I might add .
So we chit chatted and this thatted as best as we could , work permitting and then we get to the bones of it all.
It's been 14 months since her open heart surgery last year and she's lost about 40 to 50 lbs..which she could ill afford. Now granted , when someone does a plate for her at supper , they do the lil old lady version..not a whole lot but a variety of things we know she likes.
She , as is now her habit , will take 3 bites at most and then scoot the food around on her plate .
I'm never quite sure if this is the " Toddler avoidance of Brussels Sprouts" or the Anorexics Adagio.
But ...I have my plots, plans and permutations..oh yes I do .
You see, my local best friend ( I have 3..one on each coast and my Nee Nee) Nee Nee's Daddy is the folks preacher.
I work with Nee Nee.
Me: " Nee Nee..I need a favor."
Nee Nee : " Sure honey....whazzup ?"
Me: " I need Big Daddy to do a drive by on Mother "
Nee Nee Picking Up The Phone " Hi Daddy.......yada yada yada"
Nee Nee then shares that Mother had to leave the service this last Sunday because she was in some considerable pain.
That in itself is a long story and the only thing you need to understand is Cancer and a woman who has had all the treatment she can have at this point , plus the heart issues .
Hisself and I know what we are facing and he will be spending Fathers day with the folks.
It is what it is .

I usually strive to avoid a soapbox here, but this is very important. I recieved this today and this is not SPAM .

Please consider the following :

Dear ****,

As the U.S. fights two wars, the military wants more recruits -- unless they are gay. "Ask Not" is a compelling documentary that reveals the human toll of those impacted by the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" (DADT) law.Watch this powerful film airing this week on your local PBS station. Check listings here for air times in your area:


As the documentary illustrates, the human cost of DADT has been profound. Just look at one of the most recent casualties of the law: Lt. Col. Victor Fehrenbach, the F-15E aviator who has served 18 distinguished years and is about to lose his pension and his career.Each of us can do our part to change hearts and minds. Get your friends and family to watch this touching story of hope and courage:

http://www.pbs.org/independentlens/broadcast.html?edit_st=yYour support is helping -- especially right now -- in the fight for repeal of DADT.

Thank you.

Had to share this , sent by the bestus gal pal.

It is the month of August, a resort town sits next to the shores of a lake. It is raining, and the little town looks totally deserted. It is tough times, everybody is in debt, and everybody lives on credit.Suddenly, a rich tourist comes to town. He enters the only hotel,lays a 100 dollar bill on the reception counter, and goes to inspect therooms upstairs in order to pick a room. The hotel proprietor takesthe 100 dollar bill and runs to pay his debt to the butcher. TheButcher takes the 100 dollar bill, and runs to pay his debt to the pigraiser. The pig raiser takes the 100 dollar bill, and runs to pay his debt to the supplier of his feed and fuel. The supplier of feed and fuel takes the 100 dollar bill and runs to pay his debt to the town's prostitute that in these hard times, gave her "services" on credit. The hooker runs to the hotel, and pays off her debt with the 100 dollarbill to the hotel proprietor to pay for the rooms that she rented when she brought her clients there. The hotel proprietor then lays the 100 dollar bill back on the counter so that the rich tourist will not suspect anything. At that moment, the rich tourist comes down after inspecting the rooms, and takes his 100 dollar bill, after saying that he did not like any of the rooms, and leaves town. No one earned anything. However, the whole town is now without debt, and looks tothe future with a lot of optimism. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how the United States Government is doing business
Sounds about right to me.

The Brits have invaded us again...j/k

I am going to be nice to CT and his lovely bride and not post the Space Cow here. They anticipate a move in the next few years to Ottawa ( yeah ) and I know that CT would find an appropriate moment to place us and a moose in the same shot.

Hey..throw in a cute RCMP and I'm game....eh !

The above photo is of Munchkin or Nee Nee Puddins as her mother ( Moi ) refers to her.

My mates are in Florida on the holiday that we were supposed to be a part of but things-RL seldom work out that way.

They have thunderstorms right now and I asked that they send it this way as it is still as hot as Satan's Underoo's down here with no chance of rain for the next 10 days or so.

I've lived down here for more than half my life and while I am the first to admit that my blood has thinned out as far as cold weather is concerned...this is a bit much .

We are all convinced that this year is going to be a bad one, it's rarely this hot this early....but then we didn't expect IKE last year either .

Have a great week.

I don 't know if SU is going to have to work tomorrow, no mention of it has been made and I sincerely hope not at Miss Gracie Marie has an appt at the Spa ( vet) for her annual and some new jewelry. I hope that her daddy can find another bell for her collar. It was certainly most appreciated by the Bluejay's , Cardinals and all the other fevvered brethren.

I'd Buy A DryCleaning Business If This Actually Sold

The Stars of SkyMall

Image courtesy of PC World

Wine Glass Holder NecklaceAbsentminded lushes rejoice: Never again will you have to wander around a dinner party wondering, "Where did I set down my wineglass?" With the handy Wine Glass Holder Necklace, your glass will always be right where you can find it -- suspended in front of your chest.Just clip the glass's stem to the plastic holder and you'll have both hands free to raid passing hors d'oeuvres trays with a vengeance. But be wary of sudden, erratic movements, as the holder puts your glass in dangerous proximity to your shirt, making dry-cleaning bills a common hazard. To avoid fashion faux pas, you should probably wear this accessory only with ensembles that include a fast-drying burgundy shirt and black pants. The Wine Glass Holder Necklace consists of a piece of plastic that fits around the stem of a wine glass, and a nylon lanyard that goes around your neck -- and for all that fine material you'll pay only $24.95! -- Robert Strohmeyer

I swear to Gaia, if this crap actually sold , I'd buy a drycleaning bidness so fast ....

Words Fail Me Right Now

A tragic twist of fate led to another death today.
Johanna Ganthaler and her husband Kurt were on holiday in Brazil and were supposed to be on the doomed AirFrance Flight 447 from Brazil to France last week, which fell out of the sky into the Atlantic Ocean. Fortunately for them, they missed the flight. But Sky News reports that the Ganthalers were in a car accident today — and Mrs. Ganthaler was killed.
Some may say fate works in mysterious ways. Our thoughts and prayers are with her, her family and all of those touched by this terrible tragedy.

My thoughts go out to everyone.

Aunty Pol

OMG..I want this now !

I need to make this asap..sigh.

Watermelon & Chili Salad

Serves 6 as a side

1/2 medium watermelon (6-7 cups) *

2 serrano chili peppers **

1.5 tsp lime zest

juice of 1.5 limes

2 tbsp rice vinegar

2 green onions

handful mint (1/3 cup chopped)

small handful cilantro (1/4 cup chopped)

salt and pepper to taste

*Keep the watermelon chilled until you’re ready to cut it up.

**If you don’t have serrano chili peppers then jalapenos would be a fine substitute. The heat in a chili pepper varies according to plant, and if you have very spicy jalapenos or serrano chilis then you may want to use slightly less.
I would think SU could eat this..he's doing okay with the cantaloupe.
Aunty Pol

Yes, It Can Get Better

Well, after yesterdays rant , which yes did in fact make me feel a whole lot better, life got a bit better .....of course this required leaving the office....LMAO.
Mid week we have certain things that need to be done...maytaging the scrubs for hubs comes to mind. Thankfully he is now on board with that schedule and can handle that bit.
While he did that, I worked out in the yard for a bit, filling the bird feeders...Yes Mr. Cardinal I did see you . In the peaceable kingdom, we do try , he and I to keep the fevver folk fed . I have to be honest tho...he does it more often than I .
I know, I know , bad Mommy.
I managed to get half of the yard and flower beds hit with Miracle Grow and will hit the other half tonight, it's just tooo damn'd hot right now to really push it. Tonight I will hit the front and the other half of the yard and then figure out the regular schedule for this. It most likely will have to be early on the weekends as it gets hotter than Satan's Underoo's down here and I don't need the sunburn or damage to my hair..lol.
It's June in Texas so it's going to hit 100 degrees this weekend and no ..that is not the feels like temp..sigh .
In other happy happy joy joy news, it appears that we are finally getting a farmers market in out lil neck of the woods...HUZZAH !!!!!
SU did feel the need to point out that it is not likely that I am going to haul
my fat ass ( yes dear, I said that ...not you ) out early enough to partake of the farm fresh tasty goodness.
Then he on his widdle on self remembered DA RULE:
" I Buy....You Fly ".
Ironically , before we left the Casa , he went through the catalog basket looking for I had no clue..so I asked.
My Basket.
My Stuff.
" Whatchu doin Willis ?"
Anyhoo..one of his co-workers wants to dive into the wunnerful world of home canning.
Work Buddy has no idea what he is thinking about.
I speak from experience.
In the late '70's when I lived on the Left Coast, we did actually do this. The former in laws had a 6 acre spread and turned 2 acre's into a huge veggie plot. In a lot of ways it was great, with 4 houses to support it was a very smart thing to do. The father in law had done this before and was not a rookie, the pay off was fresh veggies , but the work was also huge. I'd seen my maternal grandmother do this for ages so I basically knew the bones of it all and was more than willing to assist the project.
The Ex and I knew when we were in college that there would always be veggies and our portion of a side of beef bundled , yes..we were spoiled. Then when we moved closer to home, it was actually a lifesaver when the roads got so bad in winter that you could not get out.
Nowadays, it is a lovely idea to can and buy in a more direct way but really....no one has the space ( no cellars here in South Tejas y'all) or real need to set aside provisions for Doomsday do they ?
I wish SU's co-worker the best of luck....I wonder how long it will last...
Have a great rest of the week and weekend.

Do NOt Start Up This Shit With Me - Not THIS Week

It 's going to be a busy week here at the " Firm" . I have one set of rooms booked for the next 10 days for an arbitration and thus the circus begins.

Arbitrations by their own nature have their own rules...we all know them , it's not our first time at the rodeo so to speak. Oddly enough this is not the nature of the problem.

Since we are going to be booked this way and this again , is nothing new....I just finished a 10 + day spree with a meeting.. ( sidenote..met a distant relative on my mothers side as a part of this group.... )


When you book space for your attorney to meet with a client , and you know that I will over book the time a smidge if I can , and secondly , if I am booked back to back......

Pay Attention You TWAT !!


1. Roll your eyes at me

2. Do that little head snap uh put upon crap

3. Get all hissy when I ask when your attorney is going to be done since he or she has run over and you know it.

I am not asking you to pry, get in your face, intrude, insert myself, bother you , annoy you, interrupt you or waste your precious time.


Jeebus H Christ on a cracker....get a fucking grip and or a clue.

New Food Network Star - WTF ??

Seriously Bob....!
I mean really !
I know that this is only the first of the new series , but.....WTF ?
The first two that stick out from the premier episode are Debbie Lee and Katie Cavuto..and not in a good way .
The first challenge is to have the two teams cook and serve the Muckity Mucks at a 16'th anniversary par tay , with a budget of $1,200 USD and an expected guest list of about 75 people.
Not overly hard the first time out of the gate.
Let's look at Debbie Lee :
She says that she has been a caterer for 5 years , raised in the South ( Yeah ) and currently lives in West Hollywood , California. She immediately anoints herself leader of her team but again, in all fairness no one was waving their arms ala " Mr Kotter...Mr. Kotter...ooooh ooohhhh."
No one .
She and her team mate Betty Bedstye ( this will make sense later , I promise ) go with all of the others to Whole Foods. She had no clue where some of her team's critical ingredients were lovcated...Um....hollo......Dijon Mustard..try condiments you twat ! I know that there are Whole Foods in every major market but you can't expect me to believe that they change the footprint of their various locations that much.
She trots back, all Hoi Poloi about how they were under budget when in fact it was taped and shown that they had gone over and had to put stuff back.
I understand that this is a competition, but they had to work as a team and she let hers down. She paid no attention to what the others had planned to cook or what they needed as long as her hockey puck crab cakes were done.
Zip .
Nada .
Sucks to be all y'all here time.
Dumbshit failed to register that they were going to be judged on the merit's of their individual dishes along with the team aspect.
She also had not found the ingredients for a dessert presentation and had the innovative idea to pick up some in house bakery Angel Food Cakes.
Now, I love Angel Food cake, ask the SU. So did my father , but I know it for what it is and it sure as hell wouldn't be plated at my house if a fancy dessert was called for.
It presented and looked like something any one of my cats would have yakked up.
If something looks that bad...leave it BOH.
To top all of this off , Miss Debbie tried to worm her way out of the lie caught on tape about being under cost.
She should have been shit canned right there.
By comparison, the other one that stood out...Katie ( Dietitian) Cavuto was harmless enough if you can over look the presentation and personality of Spam.
Her salad ( s) looked like shit.
She as smart enough to borrow the Dijon Mustard she needed from the other team had kudo's to them for helping her out.
But cooking...nope .
Whipping together a salad dressing ain't cooking.
Not in this contest....settle down y'all.
Furthermore , I am not sure that I would want to have a new show hosted by someone that has all the personality of the cafeteria lunch lady....sorry MIL..it is what it is.
It will be interesting.

Gracie Marie Was A Bad Girl

Dear Daughter,

Your Daddy and I are rather miffed at you dear. Where exactly did you lose your jewelry ?????
Your Daddy had that charm made just for you , all pretty and pink , as was your necklace ( collar to the non parental kitteh types ) and now it's gone. Your Unca and Mommy spent the better part of the afternoon on the quest and searched all over the yard, aka Hells half Acre to no avail. Note to self : ...Water More .

Anyhoo...then Mommy looked all over the house and nada.

Now , I understand that it was a tear a way and that if you needed to that you could escape the clutches of a goggie...not that you would ever be in much danger of that , I mean really ...the puppy's next door think of you as a kitty puppy as it is and Ms Maddie would make you nuts with the barking ( yes dear, she has that effect on us all at times.)....so......

Oh well...your Daddy is paranoid to let you out right now even though I have told him that you are not inclined to gambol off the patio in this heat. He is going to make you a new necklace, and while it may not be as pretty as the pink one you LOST , it will serve.

TRY not to lose it.

You Miss Thang will be going to the Spa ( Vet) earlier than you'd like .



Have a great week .

Oh Grasshopper, WHY ???????
From MSN 's news page:

I am so saddened by this .

David Carradine

Actor David Carradine found dead in Bangkok
June 4, 2009, 9:10 AM EST

BANGKOK (AP) -- Actor David Carradine, star of the 1970s TV series "Kung Fu" who also had a wide-ranging career in the movies, has been found dead in the Thai capital, Bangkok. A news report said he was found hanged in his hotel room and was believed to have committed suicide.
A spokesman for the U.S. Embassy, Michael Turner, confirmed the death of the 72-year-old actor. He said Carradine died either late Wednesday or early Thursday, but he could not provide further details out of consideration for his family.
The Web site of the Thai newspaper The Nation cited unidentified police sources as saying Carradine was found Thursday hanged in his luxury hotel room and is believed to have committed suicide.
Carradine was a leading member of a venerable Hollywood acting family that included his father, character actor John Carradine, and brother Keith.
In all, he appeared in more than 100 feature films with such directors as Martin Scorsese, Ingmar Bergman and Hal Ashby.
But he was best known for his role as Kwai Chang Caine, a Shaolin priest traveling the 1800s American frontier West in the TV series "Kung Fu," which aired in 1972-75.
He reprised the role in a mid-1980s TV movie and played Caine's grandson in the 1990s syndicated series "Kung Fu: The Legend Continues."
He returned to the top in recent years as the title character in Quentin Tarantino's two-part saga "Kill Bill."

Fattening Fallacies

Coffee Shop Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada

Me: “Welcome to ****, what can I get for you?”

Customer: “Could I get that donut right there?” *points*

Me: “Sure thing.”

(I put it on a plate and hand it to him.)

Customer: “Can you heat it up for me, please?”

Me: “No problem, I’ll just be a minute.”

Customer: “Put it in for exactly 7 seconds. If you microwave food for 7 seconds, it becomes negative calories. Did you know that?”

Me: “Um…I don’t think that’s how food works.”

Customer: “Well, how would you know, you’re just a part-time employee at a coffee shop.”

Me: “I work part-time to pay for University…where I study health and nutrition…”

Customer: “What are they teaching kids these days?!” *walks away angrily without the donut*

Me: “Have a nice day?”

Sometimes Flat Out Silly Is Good

Anyone that knows me knows that I am a HUGE fan of Bruce Campbell .

Read that again, take it all in .......I'll wait .

With the summer re-runs on the T slant V , there is not a lot to view, other than re-runs of NCIS or Bones when you can catch them . We are Netflix people and more often than not I try to get at least one brain numbing laugh your ass off choice in there....for me.

Anyone who reads this blog can tell by yesterdays posts that it was a weird/oh fuck no/here we go kind of day.

Oh crap..unintentional rhyming ..mea culpa mea culpa.

Anyhoo...The film of choice for last night was " My Name Is Bruce."

I LAUGHED MY ASS OFF !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It was seriously laugh out loud funny . The film was shot in Medford , Oregon and also had Ted Raimi ( Seaquest, Xena ) in it as Luigi the sign painter and lesser of the Mario Brothers. It also had added features that I don't usually bother with but check out the " Heart Of Dorkness."

I honestly recommend this film , and while it was true that there was some blood....no one over the age of 5 could have taken it for real or anything other than what it was .

I need my own copy.

LMAO..Look out honey....I just ordered my own copy an Amazon.....wheeeeeeeeeeee.

Yet once again I was faced with this issue . A client comes in and proceeds to remove her footwear and further put her delicate " hooves " on the glass coffee table in the reception area. The space is configured in such a way that there is no way that I can verify this with any subtlety. I'd had a number of " WTF " e mails ...yeah...I know, not my JOB per say.

And yet...

I e mailed the staff of the attorney appropriate and after trading a few e mails , they said something to the client.

After I had made it clear that this was not my JOB, and it was theirs to handle it.

Nope...not going to let them hide or pass the buck here.

I hate passive aggressive bullshit .

And it's only Tuesday.

Oh No There Goes Tokyo

What can I say ? I am on the lizards side.
I found a website that is devoted to vintage movie poster , advertising ( or Blipverts as Max Headroom used to call them). The scary part is going through all of the categories and finding things like " Lysol" being recommended for feminine hygiene.
I am not making that bit up.
Scary shit Maynard.
