Sunday Bullets 3
Because I can't be bothered to blog during the week, obviously, I'm indulging in bullets again. Here are some things I've seen, heard, thought and done lately.

  • I found this quite funny. There is just nothing out there that somebody won't do.
  • This make me giggle every time I see it. And it has nothing to do with me being a conservative. I just find the picture funny.
  • My friend Laura sent this picture to me as she knows I am a Sarah Palin fan. Laura's daughter Maybree must have different feelings.
  • It's never a bad time to watch this. No matter if people say it too much, that skit will always be funny!
  • THIS is for my fellow lovers of the 80s!
  • Vanilla Tootsie Rolls rock! I freely admit to sifting through my kids' parade and halloween candy and hording them for myself! What they don't know while they sleep will never hurt them.
  • Will Smith turned 40 this week. I was all, OMG he's getting old! Then I realized that I will be 38 in November. 40 isn't really old at all. Not. At. All. When I was 18, though, 40 was a senior citizen! 40 is the new 30 so I will really only be 28 in November. See how that works?
  • If you live in IN (or CO, FL, OH, PA or VA) you can only register to vote until next Monday. Otherwise, you are SOL on November 4th. Get registered!
  • Because a presidential candidate won't appear on a talk show I'm supposed to be all upset? I don't think so, Dave. I personally don't need or want to see any of the candidates on comedy talk shows. Some people around 'teh internets' were all, 'Oh hell yeah! Letterman rips McCain a new one! Rock ON!' Whatever, dudes. I'm over the trash talk. I'm now just counting down the days 'til the election.
  • Friday, I took the kids to their big sister's high school homecoming parade. They had a good time and got a little bit of candy. We were lucky enough to stand by a group of parents with kids who chose to stand about 4 feet into the street and the adults ran around picking up all the candy for their kids. AND, one of the parents practically tackled the people who were giving out Ice Pops. It was annoying and just..annoying. Bunch of mooches.
  • Friday night we went to the football game. We only stayed until after the half-time activities because it was windy and cold and mama didn't bring a jacket. I don't know about anyone else, but back in the 80s at my high school, homecoming was not a formal affair! It's just so weird to me that it has become so now. High heels and dresses that could pass for prom attire. Back in the day, the Queen and court candidates wore sweaters and jeans.
  • Saturday morning we were up bright and early for the Ball State homecoming parade. The kids got tons of candy. (and I've already picked out the vanilla tootsie rolls!)
And, I guess that's it for now. I'll try to do some actual blogging this week but I can't promise anything. Have a good week!

They should rename it "DUH! Magazine"

Also, who cares? And? That is one cute baby!

P.S. And when I say who cares, I mean, who cares whether he, or any other celeb is gay or straight?? Jeez... If I were a Clay fan, which I am not, I'd still be a fan no matter. Like, if Matthew McConaughey were gay, I'd still find him SMOKING hot! See how that works? Who cares??

Sunday Bullets
Does two Sundays in a row make this a regular feature on my blog?

  • I'm watching "Bridge to Terabithia" and I like it about 10 times more than Narnia. But, come to think of it, I really didn't like Narnia much at all. If I were 15 years old, I'd totally have a crush on the boy in the lead role. As it is, I am too old and I do not. Because that would be creepy and gross.
  • One of the coolest things ever? Curved shower curtain rods. Seriously, we just got one and last night I felt like I was in a giant, luxurious shower! So cool! (I don't get out much.) Oh, and I guess they are actually called Crescent Rods. Whatever. You MUST get one if you don't have one already!
  • I'm going to a wedding shower later for one of my co-worker/friends. We're getting together at Johnny Carino's. Yum. Bread and oil, bowtie festival and cannoli here I come! It's no wonder I 'can't' lose weight.
  • Last week's Sunday Bullets brought out at least one foolish anonymous commenter. Wonder what I can say this time to bring out the fun? How about this? I think Sandra Bernhard is an idiot. The end. Amen. ( Dizzy Girl said it in a much more awesome way than I ever could.) No matter the politics, people. No matter.
  • My good friend, Slim, and his wife Milissa had their baby this week! (Milissa did all the work, of course.) Congratulations and welcome to the world, Gracie Lee!
  • Um, in TV news, Dan did win BB10 (yay!) and The Biggest Loser did not disappoint. I cried through the whole dang thing. The life of a fat girl is Kuh-RAZY, huh?
  • I've got a memorial service to go to tomorrow. A co-worker's mother died early Friday morning. Very sad.
  • Galaxy Glue, Galaxy Glue! What would we do without Galaxy Glue?! Yes, I was just watching that movie. (With distractions and such, it takes me a LONG time to do a post.)
  • Go Colts!

What'd you say? I can't hear you!
This past Monday, I had to work at 6am so I wasn't able to see the kids off to school. I got home and saw Jameson's winter coat lying by the door. Now, mind you, it was cool Monday morning. I think it was in the 50s, but certainly not winter coat weather. So, I asked him if he'd worn it to school and he confirmed my suspicion. Silly boy.

A day or two later, they were getting ready to leave for school and I told him to get a jacket, but NOT his winter coat.

Jameson: "OK, Mommy. I don't like to wear my winter coat to school anyway."

Me: "Why not?"

Jameson: "Because I can't hear on the monkey bars."

Me: **blink blink** "Um, what?"

Jameson: "I can't hear on the monkey bars!"

And then he demonstrated.
Jameson: "Everything sounds like mmfmphmmm."

I could not argue with that reasoning.

Sunday bullets
I've got nothing worthy of an entire post so what better way to fill a post than with BULLETS?!

  • I have to work early tomorrow because my co-worker has to have her 18 year-old cat put to sleep. That really sucks. (the thing about the cat, not about having to work early.)
  • The Colts are NOT having a good game today. At least they scored.
  • I am craving...something. I'm just not sure what that something is.
  • I really want all the political bullsh** to stop. And I am not talking about the bullsh** from the candidates. I'm talking about mean people online. Yes, I will gladly tell you who I will vote for, but I will not sit here and say horrible demeaning things about the other guys. I might tell you why I vote the way I do but I won't tell you why the other guys are so 'horrible.' I won't continue to go on and on and on about how 'scary' the other ones are. Mainly because I don't find any of them to be scary. They are just politicians. All politicians lie in some way shape or form. Deal with it.
  • I really need a McCain/Palin sign for my yard. Even though Bubba laughs at me.
  • I hope Dan wins BB10.
  • No good TV premieres this week except The Biggest Loser which I will watch and then cry and then get depressed. I am a glutton for punishment.
  • I've got nothing else, right now. Everybody have a good week!
Edited to add: The Colts won!! Yee Ha!

Beyond ridiculous
I'm a simple girl. I don't wear heels. (they hurt!) I don't wear much jewelry. (too poor!) I think the trend of expensive shoes/purses/jeans etc. is stupid. If I can't get it for a cheap price at Wal-Mart or some place similar, I don't buy it. I don't buy expensive make-up or hair products. I don't get nails put on or my hair colored. (I know. Poor Bubba! lol)

Same with my kids. They each look nice in what they wear, but I certainly don't go to great lengths to clothe them in crazy expensive designer labels. While my kids may find that cruel at some point, that is the way it is.

I find some kids' obsession with 'things' at young ages to be very sad. So many parents are raising spoiled brats and little girls who think they deserve everything they want because they are PRINCESSES and I want it now and I want a golden egg, daddy! Veruca Salt, all of them! Of course, there is nothing I can do about other people's children, so I just try to keep my kids grounded and appreciative of what they do have.

Earlier, I was looking for something else online and came across probably the most ridiculous thing I've seen in at LEAST a week! (Let's face it, there is a lot of ridiculous stuff out there, right?)

I'm, as usual, coming in late with this, but look at these...

Those are called, "Heelarious," tagline "Her first high heels." And they are for babies. And it's not a joke. And real mothers are putting these on real babies. Not for Halloween. And they cost $35!

Who can I smack?

I don't usually get on my high horse about things. But this is annoying me in so many different ways, I can hardly stand it.

To see more about these shoes, go HERE for their home page or HERE and HERE for a couple of news stories.

Before you start beating me up in the comments, I do find these funny. Mostly, funny looking. Perhaps even acceptable as a gag gift. Otherwise, ridiculous.

My stomach hurts from laughing.
I was Stumbling Upon and I came across THIS SITE.

I couldn't stop until I'd seen every single post and every single photo. By the time I made it back to the first post, I was laughing so hard, my kids were yelling at me to "Stop laughing, Mommy!" and saying, "What's so funny, mommy?"

Just had to share. Enjoy!

The QUEEN of irrelevant bloggers

I'm always a day late and a dollar short with EVERYTHING. Case in point, I JUST saw The Dark Knight this past Saturday. There isn't anything I can say about the movie that probably hasn't already been said, but guess what? I'm gonna say it anyway.

  • Heath Ledger? BRILLIANT. I know, everybody has already said this. But I can't help but to concur! I don't normally get all ga ga over someone's acting, but seriously mad brilliance.
  • There is entirely too little Joker in the movie.
  • Batman's voice is so over-the-top incredibly goofy that I had to stifle laughter every time he spoke.
  • While I like Maggie Gyllenhaal in general, I don't think she had ANY chemistry with Batman OR Harvey Dent. Or should I say, Christian Bale and Aaron Eckhart. I didn't buy the 'torn between two lovers' thing.
  • I found the Two-Face storyline rushed and also unnecessary.
  • There was really only one scene which I thought dragged a little. Otherwise, I didn't notice the length of the movie.
  • I totally want to see the movie again. And again. If for nothing else than the Joker scenes.
See the movie. It's awesome.

I could TOTALLY be a movie reviewer!

I like her

I don't listen to political speeches. Ever. I listened to Sarah Palin speak tonight. I like her. A lot. She speaks well, is confident and smart and is not backing down from the meanie pants naysayers!

Plus, she's beautiful, has beautiful kids and a hot husband. (See? I am so in tune with what matters most!)

I just saw a "Breaking News" thing and it said, "Obama's camp says Palin's speech was written by Pres Bush's writers!"

Um, and? That's breaking news?

Now, I'm done until election day. Amen.
