Louis Vuitton Sanctioned This ??????????


From " Hello Kitty Hell "August 2008 (14)

Hello Kitty Louis Vuitton Bong
I’m not sure what disturbs me more – that Hello Kitty bongs exist or that there are several variations of them. Apparently, when a standard Hello Kitty bong is not high class enough for some Hello Kitty fanatics, they go out and make something a little more upscale like a Hello Kitty Louis Vuitton bong. With either other one, when you get high and see what you’ve been smoking from, I’m pretty sure that you’re in for an very unpleasant experience…
I saaw the above in the blog and just had to post it.
After this weekend with the homecoming crew, flying energy drinks and damn near getting sideswiped by the afore mentioned teenagers..yup.
I feel for ya PG, I really do .
I'd have shot the twerps.

Bat Shit Crazy Day ~ WTF ~ Over ?

OK.


I said that I was taking the day off in the previ0us post.

OMG..I had no clue .

I had no clue it is Homecoming weekend.

I am not 15.


I had the happy happy joy joy experience of sitting next to this.

" I don't "

" He Don't"

And then the conversation of the various sexual practices and preferences of the above.

It got to the point that these " ladies" announced for all to hear that they could in fact say what they wanted when and where they wanted..F the rest of the world.

Oh yeah.

Then they noticed my rolling my eyes at them.

" Ladies..( HEAVY Sarcastic TONE HERE) ...Not my first time at the Rodeo.

They proceeded on..the older woman ( note the lack of the usage of the term Lady ) proceeded to tell one and all that she was going to write a book about her "boyfriends ~ aka sexual exploits) .

I am sure The Junior League is dying to sign up for that Tome.

Then.

As we were driving home..........

The SUV in front of us..with the teenage girls in the left lane who just have to moon the SUV in the right lane..oh yeah

Try to change lanes onto us you freaking Twat.

And when I look at you and go " Oh Hell No

Roll your window down .

If you pull over...

I WILL BEAT YOUR ASS DOWN.

Kathy Baker..

"Fried Green Tomatoes "

Oh yeah.

Bring it.

She's Growing Up So Fast !



Sometimes I feel like I just blink once, and she is growing up so damn fast . I know this is normal and so forth and I rather suspect that it is more evident to me since we live in Texas and she lives in Denver.

It's hard at times to sense the changes that I see in her and not be there, but she has her parents and her Grandparents and I know my place in the food chain.

I suspect that my parent's families felt much the same when my brothers and I were growing up. Daddy was a carreer Naval Officer so we were the the ones that were always off somewhere . Travel was much different then and I can count the number of times we went to see the Grandparents prior to 1968. It makes those memories more sharp and vivid because they stand out so clearly.

She is lucky to have family closeby though because I can speak from experience that it makes life easier for all .

It can be very isolating when you are always the ones that are gone and can in the extreme foster a false sense of family closeness .

This can be very hurtful in some cases because the illusion versus the reality can be brutally harsh.

Acceptance can be painful, but it can be achieved .

In the end , the reality is much easier to live with than the false hope that never is closer than just out of reach.


She has no idea how much we love her and miss her and her parents...but financially a trip is out of the question ..so there it is.

Have a great weekend.

Dear Stupid Professional Personage
It has come to my attention that you suffer from some delusions as to the actual function of various Civil Service offices.
The ones that you questioned me on in particular close at 4: 30 p.m.
PERIOD .
The office does not have late filing or a drop box.
They are not part of the local , state or federal judicial system .
IT'S THE FUCKING I.R.S.
They are not going to wait for your package to arrive.
Not because they are mean .
They are employee's who have worked their duly allotted hours and would like to embrace their own personal lives.
I don't care how big the client is or what the issue is.
I don't care that by the sheer will of your charm and vast experience that you feel entitled to supersede their office policies and the policies of the UNITED STATES CIVIL SERVICE.
If I in fact tell you that they close at 4: 30 , and it is actually 4: 24 p.m....don't question me.
The office you wanted this delivery sent to is across town , and it's raining.
There is no way on God's green Earth that I can get a package to 8701 S. Gessner in 6 minutes.
I cannot even guarantee that I can get it picked up by the courier service by 5 p.m.
IN THE RAIN .
I realize your need to question my answer to you regarding the above was completely appropriate and professional, since I have only been doing this for 27 years .
It was absolutely no trouble at all to call our courier service's dispatcher to confirm my answer to you since obviously you feel I have no credibility .
I deeply regret I could not change a government office's hours of operation for you .
If you feel some modicum of confidence that if allowed a second chance tomorrow , I could in fact complete this for you , please allow me the opportunity of serving you .
I look forward to it , I promise you , I really do.
Most Humbly,
No One Worthy Of Your Notice.

A Tiny Rant , If You Please.


OK.
This is not what I intended to post today ..
Warning to those gentle readers who have not seen Aunty Pol in a full blown fit of Pete..
YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.
I know that it is the cold and flu season , and that a good many of the general population are well and truly on their was to full blown bat shit crazy over reaction.
I get it , I really do.
You can't swing a cat , as the saying goes , ( not that I would for Chrissakes) with out some yutz pontificating about the shots and washing hands and blah de dah de dah......
It's the basic hygiene our mothers taught us.
Cover your mouth if you sneeze.
Do not wipe your nose on your hand or sleeve, you disgusting leprous twit.
Learn what Kleenex is used for .
Wash your hands when you leave the rest room. I do not care why you were in there...trust me here , but I am not willing to assume after watching you all damn day today that you did in fact wash the mitts.
If you are SICK...stay home.
Period.
Stay HOME.
STAY THE F AWAY FROM ME.
DITTO BIG TIME FROM THE PREGNANT LADIES .
I do have to say that the look on your face when I openly threw away the birthday cake you brought me was absolutely friggan hilarious .
Yeah.
I went there and did that.
If you are that stupid, I am going to take a pass at being polite.
A Nauseated,

Bruce Campbell Could Be Spider-Man 4 Villain; But Which One?



Posted by Neil Miller (neil@filmschoolrejects.com) on September 14, 2009




On the red carpet for the premiere of Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, Bruce Campbell squealed to Access Hollywood about the progress of the upcoming Spider-Man 4 production, which will see the return of director Sam Raimi. Good friends since their days making cult classics such as Evil Dead, Raimi and Campbell are an inseparable duo. Campbell has served up cameos in all three Spider-Man films thus far, and is already looking toward the fourth film.
According to the Burn Notice star, the project will begin shooting in January. He also told Access that he’s being groomed for a much bigger role this time, possibly one as the film’s villain.
Speculation as to which villain Campbell might play is currently underway, including a lot of “fans” (read: journos with an itchy fantasy-casting trigger finger) are saying that Campbell is being lined up to play Mysterio, a special effects wizard and Hollywood stuntman who takes a turn at crime by becoming a master of illusions. It would be an interesting turn for Campbell, who is a fan favorite, but there’s no official word yet. As far as I’m concerned, Bruce Campbell can do no wrong, especially when teamed with Raimi. So bring it on — as long as there’s no dance scene involving Mysterio and Bryce Dallas Howard.
Spider-Man 4 is scheduled for release in May 2011.

What do you think? And if not Mysterio, then who?

Who cares..it's Bruce.
I've always seen him as the ultimate Dr. Strange or better yet....Mandrake the Magician.
Have a great weekend.

It's Coming Up Soon


From the Official website : www.talklikeapirate.com
Sept 19 'th will be here soon !

Media, entertainers, the Internet embrace Talk Like A Pirate Day.
Pirates, Pirates, Pirates!
2009 buzz:
It seems the founders of Talk Like a Pirate Day have somehow become Legitimate News Sources. At least the venerable Wall Street Journal seems to think so when they called - and quoted - Cap'n Slappy back in April for a front-page story about Somali Pirates.
Speakin' of Talk Like A Pirate Day turning up in odd places, by Ol' Chumbucket's count the holiday has been featured in:
A question in Trivial Pursuit
An answer on Jeopardy
A question on Hollywood Squares
Two quotes on NPR's Wait Wait Don't Tell Me
While we can't take credit for it, we raised a mug o' rum at the news in June that Sweden's small but hearty Pirate Party (no, the other kind of party) garnered enough votes to win a seat on the European Union Parliament.
HEE HEE...next to Bastille Day, this is my favorite holiday !
Party Hearty Matey's !
ARRRRR !!!!!

Peach Ambrosia Pie



Peach Ambrosia Pie



Crust:



1 1/4 cups finely crushed gingersnap cookies (about 25 of the hard-style gingersnap cookies)


1/3 cup brown sugar


1/2 tsp cinnamon


4 TBSP butter, melted



Filling:


8 oz cream cheese, softened


1-14 oz can sweetened condensed milk, chilled


1/3 cup lemon juice,


chilled1-8oz whipped topping, chilled of course



1 cup chopped pecans



1-28 oz can sliced peaches (chilled), diced into small pieces





Roughly crushed gingersnap cookies for garnish on the top



Assembly:



Preheat oven to 325F.


Use a food processor to pulverize the gingersnap cookies into very, very fine crumbs -- as fine as you can get them.


Dump the crumbs into a medium bowl.


Add the brown sugar, cinnamon, and melted butter. Stir until the crumbs are evenly coated.


Pour into a 9" pie dish and firmly press the crumbs into the bottom and sides of the dish.


Bake for about 10 - 12 minutes.


Let the crust cool completely before continuing


.Using the whisk attachment of your mixer, whisk the cream cheese until slightly fluffy.


It is important that the cream cheese be at room temperature.


With the mixer on low speed, add the sweetened condensed milk and whisk until combined – scraping the bowl as needed to make sure the cream cheese is completed blended into the condensed milk.



Add the lemon juice and mix until thoroughly combined.


Add the whipped topping and mix until it is well incorporated – continuing to scrape the bowl as needed.


Using a spoon, stir in the pecans and well-drained peaches.


Pour the mixture into the gingersnap crust.


Refrigerate at least 4 hours before serving but preferably overnight.


Top each piece of pie with some roughly crushed gingersnap cookies before serving.


Dig In.

A Skillet , A Battery and Me ~ !



I don't have a cast iron skillet yet...but I will.
Soon , very SOON !
I don't care if I only can use it in the oven since we have a glass cook top.
I DO NOT CARE !
If we have to buy a thrice damn'd battery, alternator belt and alternator, I can get the Blasted Skillet..and trust me..,the enamel dutch oven ain't far behind.
I am so trying not to be pissed off...I really am.



I know....EPIC FAIL !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
F'g Epic !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Keep scrolling for recipe.







Apple Cake in an Iron Skillet Adapted From Sara Moulton and Ree Drummond - The recipe can be found on :





4 to 5 small Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and cut into six equal slices
1 3/4 sticks butter
3/4 cup sugar

1 stick butter
2/3 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
2 large eggs
1/2 cup sour cream
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 small Granny Smith apple, peeled, cored, and chopped finely

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In a 9 to 10-inch skillet, melt butter over low heat. Add 3/4 cup sugar to the pan and stir around, then place apple slices, wedge side down, in the pan. Don’t pack them too tightly, but try not to leave overly large gaps. Allow this to cook over low/medium-low heat while you make the cake batter.
In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat 1 stick of butter and 2/3 cup sugar until light and fluffy. Mix in vanilla and eggs. Add sour cream and mix well. Gradually add flour mixture until just combined. Gently stir in 1 chopped apple.
Remove skillet from heat. Spoon batter over the top, then spread gently so batter is evenly distributed. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until cake is golden brown and bubbly. Allow cake to sit in skillet for five minutes, then invert onto a serving plate. Don’t worry if some of the topping isn’t perfect—it’ll taste perfect!
Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.

What A Lovely Weekend, Thus Far.



What a lovely weekend thus far.

It's 75 degrees, grey, misty, drizzly, and I LOVE IT !

It's such a nice change from the absolutely blistering heat we've had all summer...!

The weather wonks say that we are going to have this all weekend.

And in other news....

So far the teeth are working for SU.

I am so looking forward to the point where we can put this nightmare behind us.

I am weary of this topic.

And, I am really looking forward to cooking a proper dinner tomorrow night.

REALLY!

Roast Chiggin, stuffing, corn, biscuits, the whole magilla.

A proper dinner, at the table like grown up's.

You have to know the whole story to get that this is a huge deal for us.

Just trust me ..it is.

Hard To Believe It's Been A Year Already !


It's so hard to believe it's been a year already.
Those of us who were here are for the most part going to avoid all of the news etc that they are surely going to air...it's still too hard .
I can tell you for a fact that the area that SU and I live in , which is by IAH was some of the hardest hit on the east side...and we are about 60 miles or more from the island. Our next door neighbor..not the NG's , the other one...aka Bat Shit Crazy...lost her 40 + year old eucalyptus tree..wham...right into the street.
Yes, we can track them, and we do and no...this was not my first time at the Rodeo, I was here for Alicia in 1983.
SU's lived here all of his life...
But this one scared the crap out of us.
And for the love of all things holy..do not remind me or anyone else for that matter of the days without power.
It was 11 days for us.

Self Portrait - Labor Day 2009


Yuppers.
That was me today.
Total Slothfullness.
Or me on the floor after a "NCIS" day long marathon.
Either fully apply.
Actually, we needed a day off.
He worked Friday.
I did not.
I played hooky which he was more than happy about as I have a habit of busting my ass on a day off.
I did get a bunch of the laundry done, but that is nothing. I tend to leave the towels and rugs folded on the dining room table when I know we are going to be doing the bathrooms. Call me silly but I won't put clean rugs on a dirty floor.
I know , I know....Dur.
The NG's came over for dinner last night which we haven't done in ages. Nothing fancy, meatloaf, mac and cheese ( trust me..throw bacon and or pepper jack cheese in there....yowza !) and Miss J made sweet potato muffins... they were damn tasty for breakfast too.
This morning he helped the Moron change brakes and shocks and then they did our breaks so by the time they were done...there's cold beer and golf at the Ice House..Buh Bye.
I hope everyone had a nice long weekend.
Back to the Salt Mines....Wah !
Have a great week.

Ain't life grand ?


For once, I got all that I planned to do accomplished. The carpets have all been shampoo'd, ceiling fans cleaned, baseboards done...ditto both bathrooms, thanks to the SU...laundry....

So today is for me..facial....heating up the parafin wax for the hands...hair conditioner....


Now all I have to do is work out a custody arrangement with Miss. L regarding Merlin,...yeah girl..I saw the note..LMAO.

Have a great and safe holiday, be careful and let's leave our respective jobs and thoughts thereof until tomorrow.

UPDATE: If you click on the above and get not found, click on the site..it should work.

I know that we get a lot of stuff with each and every new school year.


All worth while.



And all y'all know how SU and I are.


The above link is the Space Paws group .


You have heard me yap about them before.


They care for and foster those babies in need of a forever home.


On their own.


Their time, love and persistence make a difference every day for one small heart.


They are not a charity, not in a funded sense, they just do this because it is the right thing to do. They do not do this at work, they are not affiliated with the Hubble when they do this..this is a completely separate thing....gotta protect the "Stute .

This is not our tax dollars at work..don't get anal here ok ?

These are just really good, decent people trying to make a difference .


I'm not asking ..I repeat..not asking or soliciting for them in any way other than the fact that I care .


Just don't bogart....pass it over and on.


As for me....the price of Domino's..and given SU's teeth thing..solid food is large in our house....I would rather spend that for them then feed my fat ass one night a week.


Blessed Be.

OMG...Finally " Robin Hood " Is Back




Sweet Baby Jesus !
Finally !
Ok..It's gonna take me a while to get over the death scene/murder/wedding of Robin and Marian.
Seriously, cried buckets.
Do you hear me folks ?
BUCKETS !
I waited more than 5 years for " Witchblade " to be released on DVD.
Longer for " Babylon 5 " to be set at a reasonable price, same for "Buffy " and I NEED all of " Angel " .
The two shows that I have been waiting for...." Torchwood " , ( Don't ask me about the death of my Ianto ) and Robin Hood should be fairly soon.
I want to see the new " Dr. Who" , but that is like accepting that Jeremy Brett could replace Basil Rathbone.
I am the first to admit I was more than wary over the idea...until I saw the first episode on PBS's " Mystery".
Instant convert.
So with some trepidation I will wait to see who will be replacing David Tennett.
So excited...wheeee.
Yes...obviously I need a life.
No wait..real life of late has sucked major.
BBC will as always keep me going.
