Oh Noes ~ It's Way Too Early For This !

My poor husband.

Since we are on vacay this week, I didn't make up any eggs for my usual bacon and egg brekky tacos, it seemed silly for only three days this week. When this happens we hit out favorite small donut shop and so there we were this morning. He goes in and as I wait in the car, I see that he opens the door for another customer...good boy.

Poor man was behing and down wind of here and when he had come back to the car, I could tell that he had basically flipped his shit. Seems that the other patron doused/ingested/bathed in/gargled in an uber sickly sweet fragrance ...ala Pepe Le Pew.

" Welcome to my daily world " I replied.

" Honey, I deal with this every damn day , and I remind him of the more than occassional instance where I get in the car and lay the seat flat so that I can sleep on the way home before I crawl in bed to offset the worst of the promised migraine."

Neither of us understand this need, especially when the offender seems to think that saying that they themselves have no sense of smell makes this okay.

Gah !

Aunty Pol who is on vacay and may or may not be poting from the west coast....stay tuned y'all.

Just Another Manic Monday

My mama said I could do this post because I was such a good boy for Dr. Tom on Saturday here goes.


I haven't gained any weight , but I haven't lost  any either, not even with vomiting up my foods which I haven't done lately and I must be special because I got 4 whole shots. I got my steroid and an aunty biotic ( does that mean I am a bionic kitty ?) and a B-12 and one other. I like the B-12 and maybe if I am a good boy I can have a B-52 ( No dear...they are a band ..silly boy ) and I really like the B-12. I ran and played and ate and was all kinds of cheerful even before mama laid out the nip on our rug for being Casturday and all mama and daddy are really happy that I don't need to have any more stinky crap throwed down my lil throat any more and mama can go see my Aunty Lael and the big fellah and not stay home to take care of and Uncle Johnny and my aunties are gonna take good care of us .

I wonder what mama is going to bring us back. I deserve prezzies.

Gotta go, it's nappy time .

Loki Lo the number one son baby dude .

( Other than the fact that his white count is really elevated , we will wait to hear from Dr. Tom...yeah for no f'g meds down his throat !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! )

Happy Friday ~ Bruce Of The Day ~ !

Happy Friday People !

Well, I have made an executive descision.....I have a hair appt. this afternoon for the slappage of the color on the gourd , so since I have not been a happy camper in this " growing out the hair bs" , I am cutting it off.


Buh Bye.

Google " Rosario Mera" and you will see the cut I am going after...

Anyhoo, it's gonna be another one of those manic weekends. Loki has a 10 am appt with Dr. Tom and I did call to check...we DO need to pull all of the food/kibble so that there is nothing by mouth after 10 pm...and close all of the bedroom doors to limit his mobility so that we can " escort " him to the ptu by the usual nail appt for Moi and then husband is going to the Dynamo game with the crazy Cajun's and he is playing golf Sunday.

Whee !

Southside Johnny  is coming over Sunday so that we can go over the babysitting details and I am going to need to have a talk with him. I know that he is capable of kitty sitting but he does not realize that Jere Lee is in a soft boot because of some foot problems so I am expecting the younger brother to step it up a bit.

We shall see.

Time to boogie..

Have a great weekend.

Manners Do Count !

After my last post, as is my custom ( busted here, I just got through reading an article about Colin Firth aka MY Mr.Darcy and am feeling a tad wordy this morning ..lmao ) , I read my other blogs that I follow. I have been a fan of Miss Shelly , a former Texas gal ( just a matter of real estate, never an actual state of mind) and author of cookies and cups for a long time.

After I grabbed my virtual pearls in near swoon , having read the 2 ingredient white chocolate butter cream post with pictures y'all..I wrote to her and asked if I may put up a picture and link.

Bless her heart, she answered right away and soonce again it is proven :

Manners count.

Now, my blog is just my sanity/self indulgence and I have never claimed otherwise. If I find a post in another blog that I like, I sincerely make every efdfort to contact the author and ask permission. I give them my blog address so that they can check it out because Bast knows I can go off the rails in a well deserved/earned rant ( and f'proud of it y'all) but ..I still think it's the polite thing to do to let the original author see where his or her baby post will end up . I am very territorial about this lil blog and so I accord others the same emotion.

Anyhoo....go check out her blog, it's pretty, well written and just a plain old hoot.

Happy Friday Eve Y'all.

For The Husband

I thought of you when I saw this .


The Wife.

Lemon Chess Pie For A Rainy Day .

One of the things that I love about the King Arthur website and blog is that not only do they have steep by step REAL instructions with CLEAR pictures, they answer questions directly related to the recipe in comments with thoughts and ideas. Often when I see a recipe , I may post a question to the author and the resulting wait can put it kindly tedious..which I get. The KA site supports a commercial enterprise and it is In their best interests to be  proactive...and they are just nice folks to boot.

Now, my spousal unit loves Lemon Meringue pie, and as I recall his late mama's was legendary, just below the beloved butterstick rolls she made and NO ONE can me we tried.

I have a love /hate relationship with Meringue. I love them...they hate me.

I live in Houston, more or less. I live in an area known for its humidity. I have been here for 31 years and I have yet to get the $%^&*()_ Meringue to turn out right.

Le sigh.

Thankfully, we got some rain here today and it is gray and cloudy, a perfect day after temps that got up to 100 degrees , not factoring in the heat index. My brain shuts down if it hits 100 degrees. Yes, I leave the comfort of the a/c in the house to get into the a/c of the car then glide to the a/c of my office so it's not like I am working construction or putting down shingles on a roof ( yo0u poor bastards , here..have a Dr. Pepper ) but all in all , I'd rather be home baking.

Or visiting the inside of my eye lids.

Slap Mr. Linky for the pie/instructions etc.

Please excuse the typos.....Blogspot is being bitchy again.

Just Another Manic Monday

Ah yes...

When I get a call and the party says that it is an emergency, it is neither my place nor inclination to second guess the caller. My instincts are very good and if I have to get up and actually find the second party , I will. I do wonder why these types of calls always come in either during the luncg hour or after 5 pm.

And I do understand that some families have more drama than others and what may constitutee an emergency for them may not even be a blip on anyone elses radar. That being said, I kind of want to have a lil conversation with the attorney who was being sought out....alaong the lines of :


And sadly know who this is .

Yep..nada changed while you were on vacay sweetie..


Have a great week.

Happy Friday ~ Bruce Of The Day ~ !

Happy Freaking Friday Campers, we survived yet another week.

Huzzah..Barkeep...another round !

I kid, I am still at work, and yeah howdy don't I wish.

We are all actively praying for rain..anywhere . It's been 100 degrees or more for the better part of the week and what worries me is that I guess I have gotten used to it...not happy about that but whats a woman to do ?

And of course time has gotten away from me. Now if you ask me how I am going to accomplish something that might take 6 months to a year, I can  easily line it out for you ...but ask me what I am doing this weekend..blank...completely blank. This is why we have a calender on the fridge. This time last year, this weekend in fact we were in Nola for a few days since hisself had a family reunion in Mississippi and Nola time was my inducement..yes..I can be bought but I suspect all y'all already had that one figured out.

And of course we were trying to help Xena so there were countless trips to the old vet, and then the renovation /repair of the roof/driveway/deck then the holidays then the real renovation began and now Loki and a new vet and how the F did vacay sneak up on me ?

I swore up and down that this weekend....THIS WEEKEND that I would NOT go near a mall or a store because it is the pre-school year tax free hootenanny of course I HAVE to go to Kohls after work tonight.

Why ?

Valid question.

Cause I have no friggan time.

Two weeks from today hisself heads east and has to work tomorrow, so if I am going to have him not look like a ragamuffin ( sorry honey, most of your polos are crap ) , I have to go shopping tonight . While he is at work tomorrow, I really need to clean the house ( can you help with bathrooms please dear) and we still ( what we, he I mean ) have shelves to get installed so the final bookcase can be finished tho I can promise you the damn boxes are  gonna have to wait...then next weekend we have nails/vet and he plays golf on Sunday then he is gone.....

Somewhere I need to manage a hair appt in all of this crap so..le sigh.

And all I wanna do is sleep.

Have a great weekend.

My Mama Faked Me Out And I Am Hissed Off !

It's me ( sort of ~ the unpaid actor kitty is just my stunt double ) Baby Dude aka Number One Son aka Loki Lo with an update .

I was a very good boy and what did it get me ? Mama and Daddy closed all of my doors and took up all of my kibble Friday night so I decided to let my Mama know how hissed off I was, I sang Oh Solo Meowo outside of her room all night. I have a very nice voice so she should have been honored and given my damn kibble's MINE ! And I was hungry monkey boy ! Mama had to get up earlier too so neener neener neener to the Mama.

Then....they got out the blue box...and I know it is not the Tardis, it is no bigger on the inside than it is on the outside and I have watched enough Dr. Who with Mama to know the difference. Now, I made good and sure that they had to work to get me in that thing and boy did I get even on the way to Dr. Toms. Yup..I pooped on my towel . Mama was riding in the back and made Daddy open all the windows.

I think I kinda like Dr. Tom . He has some very nice ladies and one of them gave me a paw-d-cure because my nails were to long to be manly anymore and No Mama , you may not put stinky polish on them. I am a big enough boy to be nicey nice when I have to and for some reason I don't have to have the pill every day anymore . Mama and the Daddy are still trying to shoot that crap down my throat but I have to obey the feline meds = no bitey = no scratchy.

I have to nap now so my secretary will finish this.

Hugs and Headbutts,

( Ahem son, I am not your secretary, I am THE MAMA ! )

He did very well, and we actually got a report card on him with some details that were encouraging. He is tolerating the steroid well enough that he can get a shot every 2 weeks so that is a relief. The Daddy went to play cards last night so he came out into the living room when I was watching tv. I  have gotten very good at palming the syringe so once he was in my lap, it was easy. Tonight may be another story but we will see, the Orbax is not going to bde forever. We are taking it one day at a time and since he has gained an ounce back and the kidney levels are closer to where they should be...paws crossed kids...paws crossed.

I'll keep updating as best I can.

The Mama.

Oh Sweet Bast ~ I Sure Hope Not ~ !

As our weather warms up even more, inching towards the Sweet Baby Jesus can we get a storm in the Gulf...I have been noticing more ande more gals in my office and around the Allen Center complex wearing this style of dress.

Yes, the Maxi Dress has risen from the dead.

Ah , the days of my halcyon youth, when Gunne Saxe was still available and Liberty prints were all the rage. In the 1970's , maxi's were for the ,largest part cotton, modest to the point of being more Pemberly than Prada and one wore a damn slip.You just did , and so did everyone else. Ditto for a bra.

Now when I see these dresses like the above example shown above, my first thought is that I love the print. This happens to come from a vender called " One World " , available at Dillards and at Shop NBC...and IK have a handful of their tops. They have the most amazing prints with chiffon sleeves and overlays and my beloved hi-low's a thing , trust me.  They wash up like a dream and will take no room to pack . When it actually hits 100 degrees as it will today , they are appropriate with dress pants without a blazer and wonderful with jeans and favorite...LOL..but you knew that .

But...these dresses that I see. Okay..first of all , I do not think that sleeveless  is appropriate for an office, IK know, I am a middle aged bat...but still, if you are at the front desk as I am , it makes a difference. Secondly, the knit material looks like jammies material and I can bet you money  these gals ain't wearing a slip....And don't get me started on FreeBoobin ....aka Chick Commando.

Some things just don't work the second time around.

Just sayin...............

WARNING ~ RANT ALERT ~ BRACE FOR IMPACT IN 3 , 2 , 1 .....................


REALLY ????????????????????????????????

SERIOUSLY ????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

I understand that your child is having some sort of difficulties with his ex wife ( ho fucking hum...welcome to the real world kiddo ) and you want/need/require/have been ordered/requested/begged to/b lackmailed or WHAT THE FUCK EVER by your crotch spawn to get a certified copy ...and you ask me what the cost will be and I reply " Couple of bucks, minimal each way but I don 't have an exact amount because I DON'T WORK FOR THE COURIER SERVICE ....and you FUCK IT UP....AND THEN ....ARGUE WITH ME OVER HOW IT SHOULD BE DONE ???????????????????????????????????

Listen Twatasaurus Rex....not my first time at the Rodeo.

I have been doing this for 31 years.

SU was in the business.

1. You CAN'T call it in one day and try to get it back the next day to guarantee the lowest rate. I TOLD YOU THAT !

2. DO NOT give me that " They used to do that..hold documents or returns over night. NO !  I don't know what planet you are on but here on Earth , courier companies as a general rule do not. The owners do not want to assume liability for your document and the drivers as independent contractors sure as hell aren't going to bear the non-reimbursable cost out of their paycheck.

I KNEW you FUCKED IT UP when you told me the amount of the delivery cost you were quoted.  I TOLD YOU I would take care of this.

Not That I Am Obsessed By Dreamsicles Or Anything ~ Thanks to Six Sisters And The Domesetic Rebel .

Orange Creamsicle Bars Recipe:


1 (15 ounce) white cake mix

2 eggs

1/2 cup vegetable oil

1 teaspoon orange extract

1 cup white chocolate chips

Orange food coloring


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 13x9 inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. In a large bowl, combine cake mix, oil and eggs until smooth. Remove half of the dough to another mixing bowl. In one of the bowls, add orange extract and food coloring , and mix together until you reach your desired shade of orange. Drop alternating spoonfuls of vanilla and orange dough into the prepared pan. Press dough evenly into the pan. Sprinkle white chocolate chips on top and press them into the dough. Bake for 15 minutes, or until cooked through. Cool completely and cut into bars.

(Recipe from The Domestic Rebel)

Since both the pc at work and blogger are acting all wonkified , I may have to tweak this from the Casa. Anyone who knows me knows I love, love , love Dreamsicles. I was overjoyed when BlueBell came out with their version and dayum, it is good. I posted last year about a hard to find soda that I got a hold of ( only one dayum bottle ? Really ? ~ I even sent y'all the recipe I used to make the variation on the 7 Up Bundt cake with nary a reply ) ...moving on....

I saw this recipe on the Six Sisters blog and they referred me back to the Domestic rebel for the original recipe which I had to put here...yes I know it's too bloody hot to bake but that does not stop my OCD about it in any way...what passes for Fall will be here soon enough ( Please Bast ) so I envision some wonderful weekend when I can do this...I live a rich and colorful my head.

Happy Friday Eve.
