Well, here we go. The first official Sunday Scramble meme. I'm curious to see how many, if any, of you will join in with me!
As Pooba Would Say, "A Turrible Turrible, Mess
This past week Jason did a post on his kitchen's multiple junk drawers. Yes, he actually blogged about that. Even made it not too boring, in fact. Which got me to thinking about my junk drawer and how much crap is probably in there. I didn't catalog it as J did, but I did take a couple of pictures. I'm just thankful that Jimmy got it in his head to organize it a bit a few weeks ago so it's not too turribly embarrassing.
My question is, do we really need all that crap? I mean, I even see a fake flower boutineer. Is that even close to how that's spelled?
And while I'm at it, why did Blogger upgrade their editing program, only to take the spell-check out? Does that make any damn sense to you? I'll be honest and say I'm a pretty good speller, but come on, sometimes there are words that you just don't know how to spell. I want my spell-check back!
Justine Is Awesome
Nope, not tooting my own horn here. I'm talking about Justine Carrelli, the American Bandstand dancer from back in the 50s. If you stopped by here last week you would have seen this post about how I came by the name Justine.
After finishing that post I searched
hunted her down the web looking for any current information on Justine, and lo and behold, I found her. She's a real estate agent in Las Vegas these days. I sent her a quick email to tell her I was named after her and to my surprise, she responded the very next day. I thought that was super sweet of her! When I called my mom to tell her, do you know what the first thing she asked was? "Is she fat?" That's another WTF moment for sure.
I haven't mentioned my oldest and dearest friend Sinead in quite a long time, but if you're a long-time follower you may remember hearing about her. Friends from the ages of 3 and 4, we've stayed close all these years. It's actually a little surprising because we haven't even lived in the same state for the past 15 years.
Sinead's hubby is Navy and they've moved quite a bit in the last 10 years or so. California to Virginia, Virginia to Hawaii. But now they're moving here to Florida! And not just Florida, but to the Jacksonville area! Holy crapola, for the first time in a decade and a half we'll be within driving distance of each other. Well, her driving distance, not mine. The panic disorder and all that. I hope "Nade" isn't too camera shy because if she even dares to tell me I can't blog about her (with pictures) in the future, I'll just kill her. Or write her off completely. You hear that Nade???
Sinead and Justine, circa 1976? Notice the smears on her face? I don't think there was a day of her childhood where she wasn't sporting some kind of crap on her face and/or clothes. Piggy. Wow, that just made me remember Sinead's word for "pig" or "piggy". It was pigro! Weird.
Sinead and Justine, circa 1978 or '79?
I can't wait to sneak pictures of her with food smooshed on her face again! Bwaaa haaa haaaa!
Just Pop It, Please!!!
For the past 2 or 3 months I've had this spot on my shoulder blade which itches almost constantly. I'd rub it on door frames, I'd wiggle back and forth in bed to rub the sheets on it, but no matter what I've done I can't get rid of the itch.
It's a pimple! It's an itty bitty, teeny tiny pimple and it's causing me the itchy-bitchiness from hell! Why I didn't suspect a pimple from the get-go is beyond me, but there's a problem. I can't reach the nasty little bugger. The other night I threatened bodily harm to Jimmy if he didn't take my pimple popping implement to my back. It took a bit of
The next day I had Mikayla look at my back. She said, "Daddy was picking at the wrong spot! Here, lemme at it!"
Unfortunately, she was unable to get rid of it and now I'm stuck here waiting for another opportune moment to
Do you have certain words that you always type incorrectly, no matter that you've typed that same word a millions times? For many years I couldn't even type my own daughter's name properly. Mikayla came out something like Miklalya or something. And YouTube. Holy crap, almost every time I put that into Google I type YouTubel. Why does my ring finger insist on hitting that L?
