When the silence is deafening…

June 1, 2008

Here I am, trying to think of something brilliant to write. But…it’s quiet. After a long day of hubby spending quality “me” time with his brother at some airplane bullshit event, I have decided he gets to handle snacks, tubby time, and watching Shrek, which leaves me…alone. Hmmm…something brilliant. Any yet….nothing….just randomness. The kind that […]

Sweet tea and gravy.

May 31, 2008

I am never going home. I am in a hotel room in a strange city, outside of a podunk town (even more podunkier than my current town), where the weather can best be described as sticky, and the mosquitoes as rabid. What’s the draw? Two things. 1. I always sleep better in hotel beds. Even […]

Random conversation as we plant flowers in my garden. Mom: Neil Diamond seems like such a nice guy, it is really surprising his son never went into music.Me: Oh yeah? Hand me the little shovel please.Mom: Then again, he is kinda known for that squeaky voice.Me: Who is this?Mom: Neil Diamond’s son.Me: Right, who is […]

I was just going to say something, but I completely forgot what it was…

May 30, 2008

1. Why do I have a butter knife in my hand? Hmm, it has mayo on it, I must have been making a sandwich. But wait, why am I standing in the bathroom? Wait, I don’t even have any lunch meat. And, where are my pants? I haven’t slept much lately. Is it obvious? 2. […]

When 35000 burrito calories don’t make it better.

May 28, 2008

I went to the chiropractor this morning for my second back treatment, and to review my spinal x-rays with my husband present. I am not sure why the present husband was a requirement. Apparently it was one of those situations where the older doctor only felt comfortable discussing medical jargon with the men folk, as […]

A spoonfull of…sugar.

May 27, 2008

Some people are picky about what goes in their mouths. I am not one of them. Obviously. I won’t eat bugs or bull penis, I’ll leave that fun to the big boobed thrill seekers/underwear models on Fear Factor. But, I am a big supporter of the 5-10 second rule, I’ll take a bite off most […]

Blog Identity Crisis, and other pressing issues that outweigh world peace.

May 27, 2008

Musings of a Barefoot Foodie. Ahh…I was so young, such glorious aspirations I had. A whole blog about food and restaurants infused with my infectious charm and witty banter. Each post typed with care and Food Network aspirations. And then, a few things happened… 1. I realized my food photography skills were as grainy and […]

Last night I slept in my bathing suit.

May 25, 2008

The belt on our dryer broke…again. We need a new dryer. Even the repair guy says we need a new one. We have now spent more fixing our old one, than the cost of a new one. But, do we get a new one? No. We do not. We get fancy shmancy new golf clubs […]

Shrimp Scampi with a stick of Butter

May 25, 2008

What’s better than heavy pasta on a warm summer’s day? I know, not the best choice, but I have some shrimp to use up, and my darling husband requested pasta, so shrimp scampi it is. Now, I am not usually one to use packets of anything. They remind of Sandra Lee and her silly tablescapes, […]

Mobility. It’s overrated.

May 24, 2008

SERIOUSLY FOLKS… Why does everything I need to do this week require wearing pants? I cannot put mine on. It also hurts my back too much to cough, which means, of course, I endlessly have something in my throat begging to be coughed out. So, I have to do this awkward suedo-cough, but it takes […]
