April Showers Bring April Flowers, Wait What?


You know how the saying goes…”April Showers Bring May Flowers”, right?

Well sometimes April Showers Bring April Flowers.  Who knew there was some leeway there?


Not Reading Enuff!

Lately my attention has been pulled elsewhere and I haven’t been reading at all.  This bothers me because I like the books I’m reading right now but for some reason I have the attention span of a squirrel.

The two books I have going right now are distinctly different.  One is an Autobiography of Essie Mae Washington-Williams daughter of Strom Thurmond.  It’s been very interesting and I hope to have it finished in the next few days.

My second book is Hollywood Wives.  Which is so 80’s and I’m loving it.  Yes it’s considered a “trashy novel” by some but I always feel that perhaps it is a book like this to just block out a bad day.  It’s not deep or meaningful but it is a well written book with saucy and engaging characters and that works for me.

Wish me luck with my goal!  It’s time to be less squirrel-like and more serious!

Oh And By The Way…You Have An Abscess

I have to go back to the dentist tomorrow for an abscess that I didn’t know I had until he showed it to me on an xray during my last appointment two weeks ago.  I’m not sure if I’m lucky or not.  My Dentist found the abscess before it became overwhelmingly painful vs.  The Dentist found I had an abscess.  I guess it evens out.

So what is better than seeing that funny video of David Goes To The Dentist.

The Best quote…”Why is this happening to me?”  I might be saying that too David….until tomorrow.

Ron White Makes Me Laugh

This past Christmas Bean gave me an awesome gift…tickets to see Ron White at the Keswick.  I’ve been a fan of his for years and loved all the Blue Collar comedy stuff but had never seen him live until March 4.  The man still has it.  The show was fresh material and like the whiskey he drinks on stage…he has gotten better with age.
His jokes about the Dentist, the clitoris and the bartender that injured him were hysterical.  The opening act was funny too.  Alex Reymundo was a blast.  He does this bit about his kids being “Hick-Spanic”.   Very funny.
The only thing I didn’t like were the rude wipes that spent the pre-show time drinking in the lobby…got to their seats late and then proceeded to get up every 10 minutes to use the loo.  Seriously people is this all necessary.  I felt bad for Alex because it’s during his set that these boobs are still making their way to their seats.

If you get a chance to catch a show it’s a cool bit of comedy with a side of Whiskey Tater Salad 🙂

The Day The Music Died

And by died I’m referring to my Mp3 player running out of power during my work day.  It’s totally screwed up my mojo-jo-jo!
I’m totally getting excited for Halloween!!!  Last night I was going to watch “It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” but it went up against The Big Bang Theory and lets face it Sheldon is a god!!!  I asked Bean if we could squeeze The Great Pumpkin in over the weekend.  Our weekend is jammed pack with Halloweenie goodness but I think I can squeeze it in while doing some laundry 😉

We are at peak foliage changing color right now and I’m over stimulated!!!  So many colors…..

Celebrating the Obvious

Okay first let me say I am relieved the Phillies finally got something going and although it was a stressful game they won.  They are back home as of this morning and I’m just hoping they’ve got that lovin’ feeling again because this is all just too stressful for me.  It’s a stupid kind of stressful too because lets face it whether they boys win or lose I still have to go to work in the morning.
Today I celebrate the fact that my two day separation from the one I love is over.  I can’t wait to get home and hug my honey.  It’s only been two days but as I whined blogged about yesterday I was away last weekend and then she was “away” two days this week.  I just love spending time with her.  Not in a creepy I’m stalking you kind of way but in a I love you and you make my day a whole lot brighter.  Wait…isn’t that a Brady Bunch Song?  Point is I get to see my love tonight!  Yeah for me!!!
I’ve been having an odd week this week and I’m glad it’s almost over.  Seriously it’s like Dude Where’s My Car but without the car or that cool scene at the take out place…’and then?’
In other news…LiLo was NOT sent back to jail for her probation violations.  The Judge sent her back to rehab for a mandatory 30 days.  You know unless the Judge decides like last time mandatory 90 day stint to end it like 3 weeks in.  You know cause 3 weeks is long enough to kill the addiction that has been plaguing our young heroin heroine.   Poor LiLo.  Lets face it folks it’s been a slow news day.

Earl is a Porn Star

So I’ve heard the media go on and on about Hurricane Earl.  He’s sucking and blowing along the Eastern Coastline and it occurred to me that Earl is a lot like a porn star.  At least that what I’m getting from the weather people.  My local news guy who’s nickname is “Hurricane” looked like he was about to explode from sexual frenzy while talking about his Categories.  His voice was much higher when he gave Earl a category 3 status and a little calmer when it was mentioned that Earl might be downgraded to a category 2.   So if he gets down graded to a Tropical Storm does that make him the guy that holds the camera in the porn world comparison?  Poor Earl…you were once mighty and strong…but you might just be a whole lot of puff and not so much smoke.
