Her Mother’s Daughter

Drama Queen, mischievously:  Mom, you know what makes you such a great mom?

LadyBug, warily:  What’s that?

DQ, grinning:  A kid like me.

LB, giggling:  You know what makes you full of baloney?

DQ, checkmating:  A mom like you.


So I’m sitting here, staring at this blank page…

…and, really, I have no clue what to write.

But I’m committed to NaBloPoMo, so here I am.

Let’s see…what to say, what to say?

Oh!  Deputy Dad’s kidney stone pain has suddenly and mysteriously disappeared, leaving us to wonder if he passed it.  We’ll see how the weekend goes…if he doesn’t have any more pain, he’ll call the urologist’s office Monday and see if the doc wants to get another x-ray.  Wouldn’t it be just grand if the damn thing is gone, and he doesn’t have to have surgery after all?

Let’s see…what else?

Mother-In-Law and I got up at 4:30 this morning and went to Wal-Mart at 5:00 for the Big Sale.  I got The Drama Queen and Miss Attitude each an iDog, and SuperBoy a 2 1/2-foot tall Superman.  Once the initial shopping rush wore off, the holy-crap-I’ve-been-up-since-4:30 kicked in, and I spent the rest of the day exhausted.

Hey, you know what the best thing about today is?  It’s only Friday!  We still have the whole weekend ahead of us!  Weeeeeee!

Okay, I’m off to eat some leftover pie and go to bed.  Goodnight, folks.

NaBloPoMo Day 16: Phoning It In

November 16, 2006

I’m swamped at work and at home today, but I don’t want to skip out on my NaBloPoMo duties. (Heh, I accidently typed NaBloPoMom. Freudian slip?)

Have you ever watched a press conference and noticed how it takes some of those reporters for-freaking-EVER to construct their questions? Well, here’s a clip from Craig Ferguson’s* show, where they’ve poked a little fun at Donald Rumsfeld as he waits to answer those 57-part questions.

Clicking here will take you to the YouTube video. I tried to embed it here, but WordPress got bitchy with me, and I’m too busy and tired to argue with it.

*Craig Ferguson is one of my secret crushes. The accent totally does it for me. Hee.

Note: I found this video – or one like it, anyway – yesterday while surfing the NaBloPoMo Randomizer, but I cannot for the life of me remember on whose blog I found it.


Totally Irrelevant Thought Currently Making Me Giggle

October 4, 2006

In fifty or sixty years, nursing homes will be full of elderly ladies named Tiffany and Stephanie and Jennifer and Nicole, and little old men named Joshua and Kevin and Andrew and Matthew.

I can only assume their grandchildren will have names such as Ethel and Betty and Harold and Walter.
