I've Been Labeled!!

I've been labeled..... Which, in my Thesaurus is another word for Tagged.

You see, it really was no miracle what happened was just this (opps, thought I was back in Kansas with my friend Dorothy for a moment. ANYWAY, Samurai's Dojo and I were playing a friendly game of Tag. Everything was going fine when he reached out to tag me. It was obvious that he missed me by a mile but he kept insisting that he had gotten me and that I was "It". I was going to argue the point with him and insist he realize that there was absolutely no way he could have tagged me, BUT, it was just his word against mine. No one else saw it. The consequences of an argument could have been ugly as he has a Sword and I have an Ax. SO, after just a split second pause, I took the high road and conceded.
(Just so He knows, that I know)

1. Why did you start blogging?

Chatty Kelly and Sue J were doing it and both of them insisted I would like it. I actually didn't think I would stick to it. I was thinking that I would not have anything to write. But, even though I was correct in my thoughts, somehow words ended up on the screen. A few of them even made sense! I NEVER expected to have over 2 followers (Chatty Kelly and Sue J).

2. If you could travel anywhere in the world with no restriction of costs, where would it be and why?

At this moment, the moon would be nice because there isn't any gravity and I could get around without wearing my back brace.

3. Did you have a teacher in school that had a great influence on your life? If so, what?

School, er, um, well, um, I never liked school. I was so difficult to stay focused. There wasn't a diagnosis for ADHD. Every year I would start off with such high hopes and expectations. New notebooks, binder, a place for everything. Somehow by the end of week one there would be probably 20 balled up half written pages of notes I had taken in class. I no idea how to study and no guidance at home. As a result, I ended up being that kid that sits in the back of the room, doodleing in my notebook and just getting by by the skin of my teeth. SO, unfortunately, No, I didn't. Oh, and speaking of "getting by, by the skin of my teeth".....

Do your teeth have skin? I don't think mine do. Shouldn't the saying be, "By the enamel on my teeth"? Just a thought.

oops....Monkeys Are Funny.

4. If you could spend the day with a famous person, who would it be, and what would you do?

A retired soldier. No specific one. Hopefully we would sit outside (it would be a nice breezy day), we would drink lemonade, well, one glass of lemonade but then I would probably switch to Diet Coke. He would probably have Rum and Coke after his glass of Lemonade. We would spend the day with him telling me his stories. I would NOT interrupt him (hey, it's my fantasy), but I would give him 110%. I would ask questions though. His stories would be so vivid that I would be able to picture them in my head.

5. Toilet paper - over or under?

Going on a Lion Hunt. I'm not afraid. LOOK! Over there! A big, dark cave! Can't go over it. Can't go under it. Can't go around it. I'll have to go through it.
Oh, Ah, Where were we.....Oh yeah, OVER. Always over.

6. Name one thing in your life that you would do over if possible.

Just one!?! Hmmm, well there are many. One of the top 5 would be that I would not have been such a push-over with my kids.

7. Tell about your pets - if any.

Victoria-Old English Sheepdog when I was a kid.
Liz- Black Lab we got for JM when he was about 8 years old.
Sydney- Black Lab we got after Liz passed away.

Whew, Aren't you glad to finally know that!

8. Do you live in a small town or a large town. (You don't have to name the town

The county I live in was more "country like" when we moved here 19 years ago. It has grown SO much! I don't mean New York City like (or anything close) but it is growing and growing. And I told 2 friend and they told 2 friends and so on, and so on, and so on, and so on.....

Wonder why my print changed? I didn't do it.....on purpose. I'm afraid to try to change anything as I could end up erasing my entire blog and maybe half the blogospere too. (OK, that was a little bit extreme)

Well, that's all. I'm supposed to tag 5 more people but I'm tired and shouldn't be running around in a back brace anyway. SO, if you want to, consider yourself LABELED!! In other words...."You're IT!"

Today Is Tuesday. You Know What That Means

Today is Tuesday.
You know what that means.
We're gonna have a special guest!
So put on your ears
Like good Mousekateers.
Cause Tuesday is Guest Star Day!!!

FACEBOOK..A fun way to keep in touch with friends, old and new. I admit I haven't joined the party yet. To tell you the truth, there aren't too many old friends that I have a huge desire to "re-hook-up" with. My younger days I said, there aren't too many old friends that I have a huge desire to "re-hook-up" with. PLUS, I have a hard enough time getting around to reading all of the blogs written by my NEW friends.

FACEBOOK- Kids love it. It is their way of "expressing" themselves. They can chat with their friends, work on computer tech, and keep up with what's what in their circle.

FACEBOOK- These days many kids are more computer savy than their parents. Or in my case.... MOST kids are A LOT more savy! My computer skills fall in these categories......Blogging, e-Bay and e-Mail. That about covers it.

FACEBOOK- My kids have accounts. How sweet...NOT. Chatty Kelly showed me my son's facebook page. Holy Canoli! Who is this child! Obviously someone has stolen his identity. Who are these people he has as "friends"? I've never heard of them. And since when did my little angel learn some of those descriptive words he's using????

FACEBOOK- A friend of mine is a school principal. He says he occasionally goes on Facebook just to check out some of the students in his school. It gives him an idea of the REAL child behind the sweet smile and the Eddie Haskell demeanor.

FACEBOOK- If you have kids, you need a Facebook account. I'm going to go work on one now. I'm not quite ready to actually USE one yet and I won't be updating it YET. BUT, it's time I see what's going on in the real world. Well, not the whole world, but at least what's going on under my own roof.

I'm not sure if my angel still reads my blog so I don't know if he'll know I'm out there. If he does, that's ok......if he doesn't......that's ok too. Either way, He's gonna have some "splainin" to do!

FACEBOOK- "The times they are a changin".....whether I like it or not.

FACEBOOK- This mom's going to be on Facebook.

FACEBOOK-That's my special guest today, so...

Put on your ears
Like good Mousekateers.
Cause Tuesday is Guest Star (and today it's also Facebook) DAY!!

(a line or 2 of this clip pushes my PG-13 rating, but most of it is a great reminder to get out there and see what's going on.)

OK.....Now I'm Annoyed

Back surgery puts restrictions on just about every part of your life.
Even computer time is limited as I am not supposed to sit over 30 min at a time.

Before the surgery I was hurting all the time and just wasn't interested in much of anything.
But after the surgery I started to get interested in blogging again.

I'm not the greatest typist in the world but if I watch my fingers I can usually get by without TOO many mistakes.

SO, I'm grateful that I can spend some time on the
computer since there isn't much of anything else I can do.........oops, I MEANT to say that I WAS grateful when I WAS able to spend time on the computer.

NOTE TO SELF......I never would have thought that a knife would actually go THROUGH the glass of a jar. OK, using it to break up the bottom half inch of wax wasn't one of my smartest ideas but I had frozen it and thought it would just p
op right out.

Jar with candle wax + Freezer + Steak Knife + A bored woman trying to clean out the jar = 5 stitches in your index finger.

Poor Chatty Kelly, she took me to get stitches today and taking me to the back doctor tomorrow for a check up....not to mention bringing dinner an
d cleaning my house every week.....when she isn't taking me to pick up scripts and to the store etc. ET has been coming out every week too. Always brings dinner, took me to doctor once and also cleans the house.

Sisters Are Awesome!!

(typing with one finger is the pits!)

The Dreaded W V B

The Dreaded Word Verification Box.... Better known as The WVB.

For those of you who aren't familiar with this term, the WVB is the box of scrambled letters on some blogs that is supposed to help reduce spammers. Like many of you, I used to find the WVB frustrating and more often than not, I ended up having to type in the letters multiple times until I got them right.

HOWEVER, as many of you know, I finally realized that the WVB should not be dreaded. It is, after all, the making of a new language. All over the blogosphere (not to mention the Internet) people have been unconsciously typing in these, so called, random letters without having a clue that it is really a whole new language just waiting to be learned.

I am so proud of those of you that have begun to realize this! And there are many of you out there that have taken my teachings faithfully and even forwarded me a few of their own discoveries. To those of you, I give a hearty "Well Done"! To the rest of you that haven't discovered this secret language, I say now that it is never to late to learn.

I now present to you my latest additions to The WVB Dictionary.

1.slymis- a sneaky woman.

2.singiac- a manic singer.

3.chabio- Fabio's chubby little brother.

4. hinee- (hee hee)

5.dunpe- what has occurred when one has finished using the restroom.

6. zywis- a contraction of the phrase "as I was". For instance, "Zywis walking down the street and saw a pretty butterfly.".

7. drophous- What the FOX television station will do when they decide to cancel one of my favorite tv shows that stars Hugh Laurie.

8. stillmed- The newest medication for ADHD, (not yet available to the general public).

9. teeter- A broken Teeter-Totter.

10. bunifies- To make something "Bunny-Like". This term is used by scientists during rabbit metamorphosis experiments.


11. From Edie at Rich Gifts-
exons- ions that have lost their charge.

Have An Incredibly Wonderful Day!!!!!

Things to Do, When You Can't Do Anything

Things to do when you can't do anything....

1. I'll let you know when I think of something.

OK, You Asked For It!!

Did you ever wonder what Wonder Woman's Mother may have looked like?

Hhhmmm after typing that sentence I couldn't help but wonder what Wonder Woman was wondering about herself. How long must one wonder about something before they are given the official title of Wonder Woman. I think I would have to be somewhere in the top 10.

oops, it has been a long time but.........Monkeys Are Funny.

So, we were wondering what Wonder Woman's Mother may have looked like.

I can't believe I'm doing this. Anyone who knows me and many who have just read my blog know I really do my best to avoid having my picture taken. BUT sometimes you just have to "bite the bullet" (wasn't it Wonder Woman who caught the bullets in her teeth? I know she used her bracelets to block most of them......).

Anyway it just wouldn't be right to leave you wondering.

Wonder No More..........

Yes, Yes...I know it puts the Wonder Bra to shame and looks like a Madonna reject. I can hear her now. "Well guys, I like the idea but lets go in the opposite direction and add a few cones...."

It took the first half of the day to shower, wash hair, actually put on make-up (wow!), get dressed and stand there like that (trying not to faint) while Alberquando took my picture. It only took 3 shots. The smile was supposed to be my fake Scarlett O'Hara smile that I mastered years ago, unfortunately I had been holding it frozen to long and it looks a bit like Scarlet after one to many Mint Juleps. *grin*

Whew! Then I was exhausted, took off the brace and took a nap. I may need to wait a few more weeks before I try to save the world from tyranny, injustice, and the "bad guys".
