I present to you

You just are learning so much crap stuff about me.  Aren't ya just loving it?

30 Days - Day 10

Day 10 - A photo of your favorite place to eat.

Goodwood Barbecue is one of my favorite places to eat.  We don't go there very often, but, oh my, when we do, it's just a little piece of heaven. 
Their menu covers the whole gammet but what I usually get is


Baby Back Ribs

St. Louis-Style Spare Ribs

West Texas Beef Ribs

Rib Round-Up*
*Choose from two of our three rib styles

I usually go with the St. Louis Ribs (F.O.)

Then you get to pick 2 of the following.
Ruth’s Pecan Sweet Potatoes
House Barbecue Beans  (yum)
Steak Fries
Mom’s Potato Salad (best potato salad not made by me)
Creamy Coleslaw
Idaho Baked Potato

Fresh Seasoned Vegetables
Smashed Potatoes
Near East Rice Pilaf
Burgundy Sauteed Mushrooms

I usually go with the baked beans and either the potato salad or steak fries.

Are you hungry yet?

FrIdAy FrEaKy - GeT yOuR bEdHeAd On

Here you are, the picture you have been waiting for all week.

 Am I the scariest monster you have seen this Halloween?  Yikes.  Don't ya just love the hair that is all by it's lonesome on the top.  It was saying, I don't want to be with the others, I just want my own space. 
I also know that you all want to wake up next to that in the mornings.  Rrrwwwaaaarrrrhhhh.  I'm hot.  I'm working it. 
I hope you all have a really safe and fun Halloween.  Watch out for me scary creatures.  :)
Now, be brave my little buck-a-roos.  Link on up.  It's fun.  We all love each other here and there will be no laughing.  We are adults.  We will treat each other with respect. 
You have a week to link up.  And remember, I will hunt you down and hurt you.  Or better yet, I will take a picture of YOUR BEDHEAD and post it on wanted posters. 

30 Days - Day 9

Day 9 - A photo of the item you last purchased.

 Coconut Cream Donut from Beyond Glaze.  I was feeling a little bit down and pastries make me feel a little bit better about life.

This one I fixed the picture so I could present it like they do on the cooking shows.  That will be 20 bucks please.  Just cuz I presented it so nicely.

30 Days - Day 8

Day 8 - A song to match your mood.
This was kind of a hard one for me to find just the right song about  how I feel today.  Basically, I just want everyone out there to know that we are all loved, by someone, no matter who we are, or what we believe in. 
We are ALL special human beings.

Snowy Driving Vlog

So, this morning it was snowing as I was driving to work.  Being the brave and crazy person that I am, I decided I needed to take a video of me driving, just to prove that, yes, snow was falling. Grab you popcorn and a drink and enjoy.
Disclaimer:  Sorry my face shots were so dark, it was early and I didn't think to turn my inside light on.

 Wasn't that just fun?  I had a great time.  Hope you enjoyed it.

30 Days - Day 7

Day 7 - Your dream wedding.
Dear person that came up with these questions.  Did you not understand the "I haven't been on a first date in 33 years?"  Well then, I haven't needed to think about a dream wedding in 31 years.  But since I must.  Here it is.

A nice wedding on a beach somewhere.  Are you seeing a common theme here.  I think I want to be on a beach with my hubby somewhere.

30 Days - Day 6

Day 6 - A photo of an animal you'd love to keep as a pet.

Don't hurt me, but I'm really not that much of an animal lover.  I mean, I love to look at them, and see them, but not have them "living with me".  But since this is just a animal I would like to have, a little baby monkey.  Could put a diaper on him/her and it would be cool.  But then, once it got older, it would have to be sent to boarding school. 

Bedhead Dare

Ok, all you that are scared of the world seeing you in all your bedhead glory.  I really want a good amount of you to link up.  So I'm putting it to a vote.

Would you be more apt to link up if I did the actual post for Sunday, Halloween Day, so that you could call it your "scary Halloween look".  I know a lot of you won't do posts on Sunday, but dang, the ole calendar is not our friend for Halloween this year.  So far I've taken 2 pictures and I'm going to continue to take them so I have a few to choose from.  I'm a scary witch (said with my best sassy gay friend voice). 

Notice the capital WILL, you are under my spell, you are very sleepy.  You are taking your pictures.  You want to link up. :)


Which Day WILL You Link Up
Thursday October 28th
Friday October 29th
Saturday October 30th
Sunday October 31st free polls

PS:  I will put the link up on the night before whatever night you all choose.  Cuz I'm cool like that

30 Days - Day 5

Day 5 - A photo of yourself two years ago.
Whoever came up with these questions, really, really hates me.  Why, because I hate pictures of myself.  But alas, here it is.

Lovely hair, huh.  This was before I started getting my hair colored.  Look at that gray, and not very cute hair style.  Yuk, you have my permission to throw up any time.

Drivers Ed 101 - Class 2

By popular demand, the following post MUST be sung to the tune of
(lalalalalala, just loosening up the ole vocal chords)
Counting down, in 3...2....1
Just sit right down and today you'll learn
What not to do on the road
And if you do not listen well
I'll turn you into a toad.  

The first guy that you'll learn about
Is "I'm so Sexy" dude
His jeep all jacked up oh so high
He's showing so much 'tude, he's showing so much 'tude.

The weather started going drip
The wipers did go swish
Miss Jeep lady wanted to keep them on
More rain was her big wish, more rain was her big wish.

The road's not safe, from a dude like this
With lumber not strapped down
 He's making sharp turns
And changing lanes
Not signaling.....for his life
We're going to die
From the boards and all the rest
Here on the old freeway!
Commercial Break.
Now break is over, I must say
We have a few more notes
Get out your paper everyone
Watch out for the boats.

Our next dude is not very bright
I've got a lot to say
Playing chicken with a truck
Could make you dead today.

Fast lane, then next, then the slow lane
Honking by big truck
On to the off-ramp in front of me
I almost hit your butt.

Big Finish

This is the end of this weeks class
I'm sure you had such fun
Learning what your shouldn't do
In Drivers Ed Two Oh One!!!!!

Till next class this is

ps:  Did you go vote for one of my tats yet?  Bloggers Ink Challenge

30 Days - Day 3

Are you ready for day 3.  I am. 
Day 3 - Your idea of the perfect first date.
This one is a little hard for me since I've been with my hubby for 33 years (married 31 of those)  A first date hasn't happened in a long, long, time.  But my idea of a great first date, or second, or 33 years later date would be this

A nice romantic dinner on the beach, with my hubby, a strawberry daiquiri, coconut shrimp with the nummy pina colada sauce you get at Red Lobster.  Lots of hand holding.  A nice walk along the beach just close enough for our feet to be in the way of the waves as they were rolling in.  Yeah, now I'm totally in the mood for it.

How Brave Are You?

Ok peeps.  Here's the deal.  I can rock the bedhead.  Honestly, enough to drive you to drink.  So, in my ever amazing "how can I shock them now", next week, lets say, ummm Thursday, I'm going to do a little test.  See how brave you all are.  That's right, we are going to play.....
Rock The Bedhead
Keep those cameras by your beds, take a picture of one of your better=worst days, and link on up.  Now listen, if you are a wuss, I will hunt you down.  If I'm willing to let the whole world see me, you can do it. 
Be brave my little buck-a-roos

30 Days - Day 2

Day 2 - A photo of something you ate today.

This is what I had.  Looks nummy, no?

Hahaha.  Psych. 

Ok, this is what I really had, wait for it, wait for it.........

Sweet pork nachos from Costa Vida.  Chips, cheese, black beans, pork, more cheese.  Put through their little make the cheese melt thingy, salsa, guac and sour cream.   

In the ever loving words of Dazee, quite the F.O.  For those of you who don't have the foggiest idea what and F.O. is, Food Orgasm.  Party in your mouth.

Thanks to my son Brandon for buying them for me.  You rock.

30 Days - Day 1

So, another 30 Days is going around.  I don't even know who to give the credit to.  hmmmm, I hate that.  So if you were the one that started it, please let me know, and I will give you a shout out.  I found it on a blog, that got it off a blog, and so on and so on and so on.
Day 1
A photo of yourself and a description of how your day was.
Must I really post a photo?  Oh ok, but no laughing.  Remember, I'm not the loveliest person on the planet.  But I'm awesome (and humble) and that's all that matters.
This was me Wednesday on Spirit Day.  In all my purple glory.  I was rocking the purple shirt, eye shadow, eye liner and mascara.  I even had on purple underwear, but alas, no picture of that.  So sorry.  Not that brave.  :)
How was my day.  Got to go to my favorite store, the office supply.  The boys were out of staples so I made the trip.  Dang, that was a bummer.  NOT.  Checked to see if they had anything new.  You know what?  That awesomely cute pink shoe tape dispenser I bought?  Now comes in a red and a black.  Soooo cute. 
Back to work, had to put paper in 2 of the printers because the boys are scared to touch them, for fear they will break them.  What?  They mess them up every time they put paper in them.  Then they have to face the wrath of Dazee.  Scary.  (reference above picture)

Answered phones, which can always be exciting to do, do to the fact that sometimes I get asked the strangest questions, as I posted on twitter yesterday.
Ring Ring
Dazee:  company name Plumbing Supply
Delusional Man:  I was wondering if you sold pregnancy tests for dogs?
Dazee:  This is a plumbing wholesaler
Delusional Man:  Oh then I guess you wouldn't sell them.
Yup, I love my job.
Rest of my day.  Work, work, and more work.  Tonight I will be watching Project Runway.  Love that show, but don't much like Gretchen.  Just sayin'.
You are going to find out so much cool stuff about me.  I know, you are peeing your pants with anticipation.  It's ok, it will be our secret.

Words Cannot Describe

Today is R.I.P. ;; In memory of the recent suicides due to gay abuse, wear purple.  I decided last week to wear purple.  Which isn't hard since purple is my most favorite color ever.  I was almost in tears when I found this mascara last night at the local Smiths Grocery Store (Kroger)


 You read that right Baby Sister, Plum Mascara!  I know, right!! 

Now, for my other "words cannot describe", the total FO that is called, Starbucks Carmel Macchiato Ice Cream. 
Just feast your eyes on the description of this FO.  Starbucks coffee ice cream, mixed in with vanilla ice cream, and SWIRLS of caramel.  I'll give you a minute..............

And with that last vision of beauty, I bid you ado.

Dear Barbara Walters


Dear Barbara Walters ,
While driving home from work yesterday, I heard on the radio that you were still chastising Whoopi and Joy for walking off the set while listening to the hatred that Puke O'Reilly was spewing.  They had every right to walk off the set.  If I had been in the audience during that show, I myself would have stood up, flipped him off while screaming swear words, and walked out of the show.

Why you continue to bring Puke on your show year after year sickens me.  Luckily I DVR the show so that I can fast forward through lowlifes like him.

I have raised my kids to stand up for their rights.  That is how I see Whoopi and Joy handled the situation.  Instead of sitting there taking his hatred, they got up and walked off.  Too bad you don't share their passion for the rights of ALL people.  I'm afraid if you were being force fed with a spoon of puke, you would just sit there with a big ole smile on your face.  (oh wait, you were)

In the future, if you continue to bring that filth on the show, maybe just you and Elizabeth should be the only ones interviewing him.  We all know that she agrees with his views.  Or better yet, don't bring him on the show.  You play right into his hands.  He loves to piss people off.  He loves to spread his hate. 

Give it a rest on chastising them.  They didn't want to get is a pissing match with a Pukestain.  I am completely on their side.

Toenails, It's What's For Dinner

Dear readers, If you get grossed out by sick and wrong things, do not, I repeat, DO NOT go any further.  We have to discuss a very serious matter.  Toes.  More importantly, toenails. 
If you are this weird woman, get yourself to your nearest health clinic.  I mean, really, are you 2?  That is all kinds of sick and wrong.  What is even more sick and wronger is there is another person there watching, see that leg at the bottom.  Maybe they were stuck in an airport or something.  Food can be expensive there.
 I'm thinking, if your toes look like these, it's ok to pop um up there to be eating.
 I'm....just....speechless..........  And love Maya even more for doing my pedicures.  Because I'm sure she has seen feet like the following two pictures and I would be throwing up into the water.  This is why I could never do pedicures on people. 

 And then we have an extreme case of toenails.  That is just wrong.  I mean, at least they are all pretty and stuff, but ummm, yeah, whatever.
 Now these next two are what your toes should look like.  They are all sorts of cute.

At least I ended this post with something nice.  And Maya, if you are reading this, (and I hope you do cuz I'm going to text you this link) You are da bomb.  Thanks for working on ucky toes all day.

Show Me Saturday - Fall

Renee's Ramblings

Linking up with my good friend Renee at Renee's Ramblings.  Today's show me is Fall. 
Fall is here, but right now we are still experiencing spring like temps.  Today is supposed to be in the 70's.  Which is nice. 
First I'm going to show you pictures of what fall mountains should look like.

Now for the look of the mountain behind my house

 If you look closely you can see a little bit of color at the top of the street.  Actually, click on the pictures and you can see them really good.

 This will be the color of our fall here.  It makes me so sad.  Sorry I couldn't get better shots for you to see, but I think you get the point. 
Thanks again to the Utah National Guard for ruining the mountain. 
And thanks to all the volunteers that went up into the mountain this past weekend and helped seed.  Hopefully next fall I will have some pretty pictures to post.
