Lindsay Lohan’s Cupcake Quest Thwarted by Morgue: Lindsay Lohan‘s sweet gesture turned into one hot mess. According to the Los Angeles County coroner’s office, after successfully arriving this morning to complete the first of the 32 hours of community service she’s required to do before Nov. 2, Lohan ordered cupcakes for her fellow laborers...
Lindsay, Lindsay , Lindsay.
You need to start watching " NCIS " .
No one has ever in the history of the show brought Ducky cupcakes, tea cakes or any other sort of cakeage.
Don't get me wrong, I love Eve Myles as Gwen Cooper, heart and soul I fan girl her....
Alex Kingston as Dr, River Song aka Melody Pond would kick Gwen Cooper's ass then drag her off shopping .
It was an interesting weekend at Casa de Swamp.
The pc imploded for the final time so it was all gnashing of teeth for a while until SU comes home with a new pc .
I know, even after all these years , that man can surprise me.
Love the new pc, but re-loading all of the bookmarks is a pain in the ass.
I have found the easiest way is to mail the link home and then open it and book mark it.
On the other hand..
I have found myself increasingly unable to accept or tolerate poor behavior and or manners as I've gotten older.
This applies especially to family.
Family does not mean you get a free pass to be rude.
For the fourth time, I have spoken to the youngest brother and at the end of the conversation ( 4 x's now) he has indicated that he will be coming by the next Sunday to visit. Since his birthday was last month, I had been promising him that I would make him dinner ( beef) and red velvet cupcakes, his favorites.
I know that this may not sound like a big deal and the first few times I blew it off because I know him , he does work 6 days a week and lives for football and beer.
In that order.
I texted him Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday to confirm and get a time frame.
No replies at all.
Now, he may tell me that his cell phone was low on money and so it is difficult to text reply.
I know that he could have called from work.
Blowing me off again was disrespectful to both my husband and myself and just plain rude.
If you can 'at make it, had one ( or 6 or 12) too many beers, or just don 't feel like venturing out, hey that's cool...no problem.
But let me know , okay ?
I will make it clear, don't think of it or about it , come by or not !
Rude is rude .
You missed a fine steak dinner by the way Southside, you really did.
The first picture is of the late and beloved journalist , Molly Ivins.
Her sharp eye and biting wit made her a virtual icon here in Texas and across the nation.
Never one to use a five dollar word when a quarters worth would do , her razor sharp observations elevated her to the Algonquin table , at least to me .
She gave the gentleman here in this post the nickname " Governor Good Hair".
She was practicing more self restraint that I would have in her place.
The second lady is the late and also beloved Miss Ann.
Miss Anne Richards.
Our former governor.
It never seemed to sound right when I would hear people correctly refer to her as " Governor Richards."
I always called her Miss Ann and I always will.
I happen to love this picture of her. It shows her wide open sense of humor , especially at her own expense.
Yes, she is on top on a rather large motor cycle.
I don't know for a fact that she actually rode it , but I like to think she did.
At least she had the good sense to have a brain bucket ( helmet) with her.
And then there is the last picture.
Our current Governor and presidential hopeful in the 2012 election.
I could spend the next few hours writing about this shining son of the Lone Star State.
I will say simply this:
The two ladies knew enough to realize that you do not fire off a gun in the air like that while paying no attention to where the law of gravity might take effect.
I did not vote for the last Governor from this state who ran for the presidency, and as far as I am concerned his Momma should have beaten the crap out of him when needed..no matter his age at the time.
Most of us at this point are embarrassed at the thought of another Governor from this state running , much less being elected to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
Besides loving Miss Janet's blog in the previous post, one of my other daily reads is " Evil Shenanigans - Baking and Cooking Blog."
How can you not love anyone who uses the combination of Evil and Shenanigans ?
I can't help it.
Yes Sistah, you know how much I miss the autumn. I think perhaps tho, I miss the idea of autumn. Most people clean house full battle rattle in the spring. Not me. I am driven to do it in the fall when there is the first cool morning on a weekend . Considering the fact that we have set records this year in Texas for the heat and the drought, cooler is closer to the mid 80's than not. But that is normal for us. I'll be happy to be able to wear the cute shawls and break out the crock pot again. I love to watch the leaves turn color as much as they will down here but for the present we have one color change. Green to brown. Alive to dead. Really dead. Really , really , really dead. Kindling dead.
Check out the above link and tell me you aren't going to break out the bundt pan ( yes dear..there's that pesky word again) anytime soon.' Ciao, Aunty Pol
I can remember as a very young bride the first time around ( age 19...there really ought to be a law people, really..W T F age 19 ..shudder ), and feeling so very Sadie Sadie, married lady when I was served my first Black Russian at the Army Navy Country Club.
Now before all y'all freak out on me, the drinking age back in Virginia at that time was 18.
And if your father in law was of sufficient rank..well..mine was and no one denied anyone sitting on the JAG bench ..just sayin.
Then much like the Dude, I discovered White Russians.
Holy Crap !
Damn near nutritional with the dairy products in them .
Screw the fat content, no one cared in 1974 about fat content.
Eff Low Fat..who cared, that crap tasted awful anyway.
The irony here is that two of my favorite drinks are now the ones that I shouldn't have because of digestive issues.****
Black Russians and Brandy Alexanders.
" Truffles for the win Alex."
Guess the liquor store list just got a bit longer, it's coming up on the holiday after all and I am a very "merry" gal after all....snerk.
I think I have become addicted to Miss Janet's blog..
**** ( When the stars are aligned, I have been known to mutter " Screw that , Imodium was created for a reason , and as a good American , I must keep Big Pharma in Bidness.) *****
