Meet Me On Monday

I actually found this on Mary's Blog,  My Whimsical Way.  Hi Mary.  (That's a shout-out in case you were wondering.)  The meme is actually from Never Growing Old.  Because I'm sick and tired of the cold, snowy, never ending season we call winter, my brain wasn't thinking well.  Being the ever steal from other people that I am, I thought this was yet more useless crap you wanted to know about me.  (yeah, the weather is bringing me down, send sweets), (and not sweets on Bones, you know what I mean).

1.  What do you put on your hot dog?
Oh my.  The hot dog vendor at Home Depot has the best hot dogs.  Grilled onions and sauerkraut and mustard and ketchup.  Yeah, I can't eat a hot dog without ketchup.  Sue me

2.  Do you play Sudoku?
What the hell is sudoku and what are you suppose to do.  No, I do not play anything that contains numbers that look like they should be a math problem.  No-sir-ree-bob.  Give me a good word search any day.

3.  What is your favorite vegetable?
I love a good sweet piece of corn on the cob, smothered in tons of butter, with salt and pepper.  Yum-o-la.

4.  Do you color your hair?
Hahahaha, heheheheeh, giggle, snort.  Do I color my hair.  Does that look like hair that isn't colored.  If you look closely you will see the gray trying to make itself known. 

5.  What is your favorite brand of clothing?
Because of my voluptuous, very lovely, plus size body I shop at ShopKo.  They have cute shirts that don't look like the remnants of clowns material, and they fit well.  I hate to spend tons of money on clothes.  I know, some of you have now lessened your impression of me, but you have to wear things that make you feel good about yourself.  Right?  Of course right.

There you have it.  Hope you all are having a better Monday than me.  Please start praying for sunshine and blue skies.

Scavenger Hunt Sunday - 1.30.11

Confession time.  My photo taking mojo just wasn't in the best mode a week ago, so I didn't do last Sunday's Scavenger Hunt.  But this week I'm back in fine form.  Ok, my form, but I'm back.  Give me a break.

If you would like to see other fine photo taking abilities of the same subjects head on over to Ashley's place at Ramblings And Photo's.  There are so many amazing photographers out there.  I feel privileged to be part of the group.

Thank goodness a rep brought in pastries this past week.  As I walked past the box, I heard something calling my name.  "Dazee, Dazee, I'm here for my photo shoot".  I'm usually not a big turnover fan, unless of course they are my favorite cherry, but I thought this was a great texture opportunity. 

I was actually thankful to see fog yesterday morning.  I was starting to get worried about being able to get some kind of photo.  All sorts of ideas were floating through my head.  I love the quiet of the mornings in my city, and this was right across the street. 

I decided to think outside the box on the "button" prompt.  This is the button you push to open the doors at the bank.  I told my favorite tellers that I was going to be taking a photo when I left so not to get all weirded out.  David, teller extraordinaire, told me that there is actually a little button behind the big button that gets pushed.  So I included the picture.

It's the tiny little button in the center.
A customer sitting in his car on his phone must have thought I was weird.  Good thing you already know that. :)

 Beverage or Drink
This prompt wasn't that easy to come up with this week.  So I went with my old standby.  My morning cup of coffee.  Ok, weekend cup, I don't make me any before I go to work.  Plus I love the awesome cup that my cousin gave me.  It matches the colors of my kitchen. 
When I first saw this prompt, I was, great.  How am I going to do something 70's?  Then yesterday, my brain once again kicked in.  Duh, Dazee, you were in high school during the seventies.  I've always wondered why I saved my yearbooks all this time.  Thank goodness my senior yearbook had the date as proof. 

There you go.  Another week down.  Next weeks prompts are:

Page 25 of a Magazine

Those look like an interesting week of photo taking.

To Grandfathers House She Goes

Jenny Matlock

Time for another short story on Jenny Matlock's Saturday Centus.  Thank goodness I don't have to do Sci-Fi again this week.  Yikes.

If you would love to try this meme, the rules are you have up to 100 words, not including the prompt, to tell your story.  I have to say, when I was shamed into doing this meme I didn't think I would enjoy it.  But now I look forward to saturdays, other than it's my weekend, because I feel like I'm being pushed out of my comfort zone.   Anywriting, try it, you too might enjoy.

As always, the prompt is in blue letters

Suzanne always loved going to her grandparents house. Today was no exception. She loved to roam around the house, finding trinkets and asking the story behind them.

She wandered into the cellar while they were napping. She spied an old chest hidden in the corner. She opened the lid and looked inside. "What is this", she thought to herself.  She lifted the stack of letters from the ancient chest and started reading.

They were addressed to grandpa.

“If you do not pay me $5000.00 a month, I will tell the world what you did to me!”

She looked up and saw her grandfather approaching.   There was nowhere to hide…....

She Thinks I'm Funny

1. Link to the person who gave you this award
This award was given to me by Christy at My Mad Mind.  Christy, you know I love you, cuz I did win your big mouth award last month. :)

2. Pass the award along to seven other people who post about at least slightly amusing things and tell them.  Seven is not going to happen.  And what it up with 7 always being the number on these buttons.  That's just odd.  :) 

Kimberly at All Work And No Play Makes Mommy Go Something Something
Michele at Bodacious Boomer.

These ladies make me laugh most the time.  If you don't follow them, you should.
3. Say seven things about yourself that no one knows (or at least you think no one knows).Oh, I see how this award is.  Things no one knows, hmmm, like I've kept any secrets from you guys.  Thinking cap in place, hmmm.........

1.  I'm OCD when it comes to eating potato chips.  I'll pour them all out of the bag or baggie and arrange them in piles according to size.  Then I will eat the smallest first and work my way to the full size, delectable ones.

2.  Doorjambs jump out and attack me all the time.  They must be very attracted to my body, and I can totally see why.  I'm hawt!!

3.  My very first job was making calculators.  Don't laugh.  Someone had to do it.  I worked my way up to flow-solder.  Oh yeah, that was the best you could do there.  The envy of all the workers.  The highest of high echelon.

4.  Odd numbers bug me.  They just aren't right.  I always have to do things in even numbers.  It's a curse.  Even my kids were born on even days.  They knew what was good for them. :)

5.  Speaking of curse.  When I buy gas, I always have to go to the next even number.  Example $35.00, $36.00, you see. 

6.  Nancy Drew books made me the murder/mystery book lover that I am.  Darn you Nancy Drew!!

7.  White chocolate kit kats are my newest addiction.  Too bad you can only get them in the darn christmas mix.  breathing, breathing.

Ok, Saturday chores await.  Who am I kidding.  Being lazy awaits.

Stupid, Dumb, Lawsuits

I'm sure you have heard all about the dude that is suing Taco Bell because of the "meat" statements they make.  Honestly people, get a clue.  You are paying around a freaking dollar for a taco.  I pay more because I make is a supreme, cuz I'm like that.  :)

I mean, come on stupid lady that put the McDonald's cup of HOT coffee between her legs and proceeded to spill it.  Even dumber, the judge that awarded her money.  It's a good thing I'm not a judge.  This would have been my statement. 

"Hahahaha, hehehehe, snort, hohohohoho, you are telling me that you are a dumbass and did this?  Get out of my court, you have brought a frivolous lawsuit".  "Guards, take her away!!"
I'm going to bring a lawsuit against the stupid "high faluting" restaurants.  Yeah, you heard me.  First of all, if you have to wait for 3 months to get into said high faluting restaurant, then you are playing into their, "I'm so cool, look at me" attitude. 

Secondly, you bring me out a plate that looks like this........

Clap, Clap.  Oh goodie.  Look at this.  It's so pretty.  By the way, what is this?  I thought I ordered the Halibut.  Oh, it's halibut (go with me on this people, I really don't know what that is).  You want me to pay how much for this?  (because they haven't put the price on the menu).  One hundred and fifty bucks!!!! You have got to be kidding me!!!  But, but, someone dropped snot on the plate, can't you see it.  Oh, it's a design? 

Me,  small town, small mind type of gal.  I'm sticking to the dollar taco bell, whatever it is made out of, taco.   And I'm putting my mild sauce on it, and I'm going to enjoy it.

Weird Me Wednesday 1.26.11


TLCfree2bme at Shhhh! Just Between U & Me does a little blog hop called Weird Me Wednesday.  Because we all know I'm weird, I decided to join in the fun. 

My Weird Me of this Week
I don't eat Twinkies the conventional way, one bite at a time.  I will tear it in half, the top from the bottom, smear the cream evenly, and then eat each half by themselves. 

Spill it, what do you do weird?

If Only...

I know I mentioned in my dear letters last week that my 2 oldest grandchildren had taken first place in their Inspirations contest at school. 

Miss L's entry was 3rd-5th Grade Digital Art.  (she is in 3rd grade)  She took a picture of the snow at the side of the house using her camera.  She uploaded it to Photobucket and changed the color of it to brown.  She titled hers
'Snow Into Hot Fudge' 
And said, "If only snow was hot fudge."  Writing on her entry form that she liked the thought of opposites for her entry.


Mr. C's entry was K-2nd Grade 3D Art.  (he is in 1st grade)  He used the  collection of rocks me and my husband bought him a couple of years ago.  His dad hot glued the rocks where Mr. C wanted.  He then placed each rock where he wanted it on a piece of wood.  He titled it
'Crystal Candle' 
and related it to the theme saying, "If only the flame was real fire."

I am so proud of my grandkids.  I would have never have had the nerve at their ages to try something for a contest like that.

Dear........ 1.25.11


It's Tuesday already.  I mean, really, time is flying.  What is up with that.  And just a friendly reminder, Christmas is only 11 months from today. :)

We all know that Tuesday is the day of our Dear...... letters.  Ok, it's my day of them, and my 2 regulars Renee and Baby Sister.  (don't you love how I just shamed both of them to make sure they do them)

If this is your first time here, Dear...... letters are letters to anyone, good or bad, that we would like to tell them what's on our mind.  Grab the button code over there, write your letters and then come on back and link up. 

Dear Dudes With The White Crap On The Corners Of Your Mouth.  Do you not feel stuff there while you are talking?  You are grossing me out.  While I'm bringing this out in to the open, I also get really grossed out by the strings of white spit that sticks to your top lip and bottom lip and flaps around while you are talking to me.  Pardon me if I start barfing all over you.

Dear New Buildings Going Up In My Town.  Would you please place a sign saying what you are going to be when you grow up.  The suspense is starting to get to me.  I can only guess so many things.  If you are going to be a bank or gas station, I'm going to be really sad.  Please be a McDonald's, Cafe Rio, or Taco Bell. 

Dear Word Verification.  I understand why some people use you.  What I don't understand is, if I don't get it right the first time, you take it upon yourself, to put it bigger, blaring out at me like you are yelling, no dummie, it wasn't unwbyet, try this you idiot, WhammoWell, wordie, can I call you that, I feel we are getting so close now, could you please just put it in big, easy to read letters in the first place.  I would really appreciate it.

Dear Adam and Machaelle.  I know that you both live vicariously through my blog.  I think it is cute.  And because of my never ending, eternal like for you both, I'm showing your "pronounce this" to my friends.  You guys owe me big time.

There you have it.  That was fun, and I'm feeling so much better.  Now it's your turn.  Come on, you can do it, I have faith.

The things you do for love.

Life Is Good

Life for me right now is good.  (knocking on wood).  As I read all the blogs I am following everyday, I am always grateful that I'm not having to go through some of those awful things that others are going through. 

Janet over at Something To Talk About, bestowed the Life Is Good award on me.  Thanks Janet.  She was very nice in telling others why I got it.  (man, do I have her fooled, laughing hysterically to myself)

Of course, no award is ever given without some questions.  Which is ok, because I love to answer them.  And there are no questions today about my crush, so you are all safe. 

We now are entering the land of Dazee's mind. 
Enter at your own risk.

1. If you blog anonymously, are you happy doing this? If you aren't anonymous, do you wish you started out anonymously, so that you could be anonymous now?
I am not anonymous.  Hell, I can't even say that word right.  I'm glad that I'm not because I hope that sometimes I can make you laugh.  We all need that in our lives. 

2. Describe an incident that shows your inner stubborn side.
Stubborn, hum.  Am I stubborn?  I can't even think of an incident that I was stubborn, but I will tell you that if you do something to my kids, as I've blogged about before, you better watch out.  I will climb up your butt and out your mouth before I'm done!!!!

3. What do you see when you really look at yourself in the mirror?
Someone beautiful and stunning.  And then I take a picture of myself, or someone takes one of me, and I'm like, who is that gross monstrosity.  I always think I look better than what I perceive others are seeing.  Kind of like  hearing your voice.  You perceive what you sound like, but then you hear yourself and you are grossed out. 

4. What is your favorite summer cold drink?
Coke Zero and water.  With a huge snow cone thrown in every once in a while.

5. When you take time for yourself, what do you do?
Read and Blog. 

6. Is there something that you still want to accomplish in your life?
I want to go on a 2 week vacation with my husband.  I know this doesn't sound so awesome to some of you, but he is more of a homebody than me.  Shocking, I know, that someone is worse than me.  I would love to go to some historical sites with him.  He loves things like that and I think it would a great time.  Of course, then I would have to talk him into getting passports because we would have to make Auschwitz one of our stops.  Wish me luck.

7. When you attended school, were you the class clown, the class overachiever, the shy person, or always ditching?
Class clown?  Nope.  Overachiever?  Nope, did just enough to get through school since I hated it so bad.  Shy?  Me shy.  hahahah, hohohhoho. snort.  Moving on. Always ditching?  Only once and got caught.  So I guess I'm none of the above.

8. If you close your eyes and want to visualize a very poignant moment in your life, what would you see?
Seeing my husbands face the first time he looked into the eyes of my daughter when she was born.  Their eyes actually met before she was all the way born.  The feeling in the room at that time is something I will never forget.

9. Is it easy for you to share your true self in your blog, or are you more comfortable writing posts about other people and events?
It's very easy sharing myself on here.  I'm totally open about most things.  Didn't use to be that way.  This blog has been a great thing for me getting tons of stuff off my chest.

10. If you had the choice to sit down and read a book or talk on the phone, which would you do and why?
Read a book.  I'm not the most "lets talk for hours on the phone" type of person.  Books will take you away to places you have never been, and in my case, scare the crap out of me, because someone is always getting murdered.  Now I will talk to you on "text" forever. 

Now I'm supposed to give this award to some others.  Remember, if I don't give it to you, please don't unfollow me.  It's just that, well, ummm, I can't give it to 270 people.  That would just take up too much blog space. 

The first one goes to my daughter.  She has a blog that is private so I can't send you over to read all her wonderful posts.  Just believe me, if you are lucky enough to read them, she is an awesome person. 

LL Cool Joe at Joey's Pad.  Have you ever stopped into someones blog and totally love it the minute you are there.  His was like that for me.  Of course, I would love to hear his voice because he lives in England (right Joey?).  Maybe someday he will do a vlog.  But I digress.  He takes awesome photos, and is a very hip dresser.  Plus, he comments on my posts, so that makes me feel good.

Renee at Renee's Ramblings.  She is a mom and is one of the few people that week after week does my Dear...... meme.  She is funny, and is trying to lose weight, and has worked out everyday since January 1st.  She makes me feel lazy.  Plus, she could use some more followers.  Just sayin.

Chana from Mamma Town.  Another young mother.  Her daughter is adorable and she is taking photography classes.  I wish she lived by me so she could do a family portrait.  Dear Chana, whenever you come my way, please bring your camera.  :)

Those are just a few of the awesome blogs that I read.  Check um out if you aren't already reading them.

The Problem On Zenith

Jenny Matlock

Time once again for Saturday Centus.  Why, because I like to torture myself.  Remember, this fine writing meme is sponsored by Jenny Matlock.  A little letter for Jenny.  (and no, it couldn't wait for my Dear..... meme on Tuesday).

Dear Jenny,
I do not like science fiction.  Don't even read the books or watch the shows.  This prompt was very much out of my comfort zone.  I know, you like to make us use what little brain cells we have, but please, in the future, no more science fiction.  Mmmkkkk.  

This weeks prompt is "Beam Me Up Scottie".  I triple dog dare any of you that don't do this meme to try it.  Triple dog.  Scared aren't ya.

“Captain” exclaimed Sasha, “we have a problem on Zenith in the bilateral zone”.

She had been staring at her monitor all morning. All at once, there was an incoming flight. But the thing was, no flights were scheduled.

She zoomed the camera in, to see what the approaching item was. It was a carrier from Zenon. They were not allowed on their planet. She pressed the emergency button, and saw the creatures departing their plane. She started screaming into her headset, “beam me up Scottie”, when a horrible looking creature ran through the door, gun aimed at her chest and then....................
she woke up.

Yikes, I'll never sell this story.  But hey, I gave it the ole college try.  (yet another saying that makes you wonder where in the hell did it come from)

Here's hoping next week's is something I can handle.

Friday, January 21, 2011

Well, What's Your Answer?

I need some mojo people.  I'm not in the mood to work.  I want to just veg,  and chat all day on the facebook and such.  I've also been playing around with my camera this morning, I know, I should be working but read the first line.  So again, I stole these questions from Drazil. 

How would you answer them?

1. For $50,000 – would you go without brushing your teeth, showering or wearing deodorant for 3 months?
Oh my, I would have to go with wearing deodorant.  I have to brush my teeth.  And floss.  Ick, just thinking about not makes my stomach turn.  Showering, I can go a day, but after that, ummm, yeah, got to have that hot water.  Deodorant, you could always use powder or just wash under your arms really good.  See you would thank me.
2. Is it harder to tell someone you love them or harder to tell someone you don’t love them back?
It would be harder for me to tell someone I didn't love them back.  I have no problem telling someone I love them.  I find it harder on me to not hear the "I love you".  And I totally can't stand the fake, I love you.  My dad always says it, but to me it doesn't sound sincere.  And if you are my family reading this, I still love dad, but, well, you know.  I keep it real here on my blog. 
3. What is on your bedside table?
My alarm clock, which I don't use the alarm but the clock part is big huge numbers.  A lamp, the Hunger Games 3 book set that I just bought with the Barnes and Noble Gift Card I got for christmas, my cell phone charger and my cell phone (at night) which is my alarm clock.  And my cute little granddaughter Miss A is my alarm singing twinkle twinkle little star.  A bit jealous, aren't you.
4. If you could be invisible, who would you kiss?

Yeah, I'll put his picture on here every chance I get. 

Ok, I'm going to do my real job now.  Hey, stop that laughing.  It's true.  Geez.

My Most Amazing Body

Welcome to
Dazee's Amazing Body

First off, we are going to talk about the Random Food Catcher aka my ample chestage.  I have this amazing skill to save the floor from food finding it's way to it.  A feat which is very good because I have no dog to come and lap it up.

 It also means that I keep the following industry in business.  Yes, the Tide To Go Factory.   Your jobs are safe as long as my boobage is around.  Your welcome.

The most amazing part of my body is my psychic hands.  What are they you ask?  They have the ability to predict a coming storm.  What you don't believe me?  You can ask my good friend Machaelle.  We were texting last night and I said, "my hands are killing me, we must be getting a storm".  Lo and behold, it was true, stormy this morning.  And this is not the first time.  It happens all the time.  If you need me to come to your neck of the woods, it will only cost you airfare, hotel stay, and food allowances.  What, that is a steal!
I told my car pool buddy, aka, my daughter-in-law Lizzie about my psychic hands this morning.  She, being the jokester that she is said, "what, can they tell when the milk is going to expire".  Tee-hee-hee.  Always a skeptic in the crowd.

There you have it.  I must do some real work now.

Oh, oh,and guess what?  Boyfriend is on tonight.  A new episode, FINALLY!!  My hands are telling me that he will look nummy.   TTFN

Tuesday, January 18, 2011



I don't know about the rest of you, but this last week went fast.  Seems like just yesterday I was doing my Dear...... letters. 

If you don't know what Dear...... letters are, they are letters to anyone, good or bad.  Just a little way to tell others how we are feeling.  If you want to join along, grab the Dear..... code over there on the side, and link on up. 

Let us begin.

Dear Dazee.   When digging in your purse for your keys, always look in your hand before shouting out your joy of finding them.  Your bluetooth charger will not start your car.  Just sayin.

Dear Scaryman.  You and I have not had a good week with your nose.  Yes you have been doing good to not do your snot rockets where I can see you do it.  No, standing out of my window view does not mean I can't hear you do them, I most certainly can.  But by far the worst thing you did this week was walk around like a little kid with you snot hanging down almost to your mouth.  What part of sick and wrong do you not understand?

Dear Justin Bieber.  What the hell is up with your hair?  Please stop it already.  Now I have to see other young boys doing the same look.  It looks like a bad case of hair dyslexia.  Try something new.  Thanks.

Dear Clear Plastic Wrap.  I think they should use you as a torture device.  I love that you will stick to the bowls, but it would really be nice if you would please, oh please, not stick to yourself once you are torn from the roll.   The swear words coming out of my mouth are not a pretty sound. 

Yes, a picture for your viewing pleasure
Dear Stapling Fools At Work.  I can see one, maybe two, staples to hold together the packing slips and receivers.  32 staples is a bit much.  Yes, I started taking them out with my awesome staple remover, but I just had to prove to my people that you are not concerned about the staple population.  Not only that, but it took 20 minutes for me to get them all out.  Please enroll in Staplers Anonymous. 

Dear Cake Wrecks.  You rock.  Your blog is so much fun.  I can't even go to a bakery anymore without hoping beyond all reason that there is a cake wreck I can send you.  The best thing I did this year was buy your calendar.  I crack up every week when I change it at work.  You make my day.

Dear Miss L and Mr C.  I am so proud of both of you for taking first place in your Inspirations contest at school.  You both came up with such good ideas all by yourselves.  Good luck at District this week.  I know you are going to do well.

Scavenger Hunt Sunday - 1.16.10

    This weeks prompts were hard.  OK, they are all hard because I'm just little ole Dazee.  But Ashley at Ramblings and Photo's has faith in all of us that we can do it.  Thanks for the faith Ashley.
    A Different View
    I had to use two photos this week for this prompt.  My cool nephew Carl works at Kennecott Copper Mine here in Utah.  He gets to drive one of those huge trucks down into the mine.  I cheated and asked him to get me the photos since, well, mere humans like me are not allowed in the mine.  The photo above is from his window looking down into the mine
    I fell in love with the photo below the minute I saw it.  It is taken on top of the mine looking down into the Salt Lake valley.  This is a different view.  One that a lot of us don't ever get to witness.
    Looking Up
    For this prompt I pulled Mike, one of the guys I work with, kicking and screaming, out into the warehouse.  Threatened him with bodily harm asked him nicely if he would get on the cherry picker and go to the very top shelf on one of the aisles so I could get a photo looking up.  What a good sport.  Me, my heart would have been pounding a thousand beats per minute.  I'm terrified of heights if I don't have any walls around me.
    I had to look abstract up on just so I would really know what I could get away with for this prompt.  Way to make me use what little brain cells I have left Ashley.
    I love this photo I took of my cousin April's hair.  I love how all the colors that were used are so vibrant.  And yes, that is natural curl you see. 
    One of the hardest prompts I had this week.  Hell, they were all hard.  But my thinking cap was missing so I just came up with a couple of pieces of half eaten candy.  Yeah, it was awful for me having to make them into half pieces too.  :)
    Now, if I can do this, you guys can do this.  Try it, you will be hooked.
    Next weeks prompts:
    1. Memories
    2. Silhouette
    3. Doorway(s) 
    4. Reflection 
    5. Silver

"Her Unfair Life"

Jenny Matlock

Saturday Centus time.  And little Miss Jenny I'm going to make it hard on you once again Matlock has decided to change it up, yet again.  Instead of 100 words plus the prompt for our story, well, in her own words,

"Your SC can be a story of your choosing - fact, fiction, or poetry but this week you will only have twenty-five words (plus the three words for the prompt) for your story."

Isn't she just all kinds of sweet. 

And I'm off.  The prompt will be the larger words in the story. 
(aah, hmmm, just clearing my throat a little.)
“Life is so unjust“, she screamed, as she crumpled up the lottery ticket with the winning numbers. Her husband and the Witness Protection Program continued to ruin everything.

You guys should really try your hand at this.  It's easy *snicker*

I think I'm more a GEMICER.  Yeah, That's my new sign.  :)

Now on to the real crazy

1. If you were on death row, what would your last meal be before your “death”?
Coconut Shrimp from Red Lobster, slathered with their yummy pinacolada sauce.  Side of their mashed potatoes.  My mom's homemade rolls, and a big ole piece of german chocolate cake for dessert.  Shesh, now I want it, without the death row.
2. If you drive a car, do you speed? 
I'm your ever vigilant go over the speed limit by 5 mph.  I have the innate fear that  the cop will pick me to pull over before anyone else.  If said cop pulls me over, he/she better be prepared to see me breathing into a paper bag.
3. What movie(s) do/can you watch over and over again?
Pretty Woman, Dirty Dancing, Beaches.

4. What’s your favorite blog topic to read about and your favorite blog topic to write about?
I love to read all types of blogs.  I love the "real" life stories, the made up persona's, your good days and your bad.   I love to read how you answer these same questions.  I'm not a prude, swear words don't bother me.  Sometimes I'm afraid I will offend people on my blog.  I try to keep my topics light and funny.  But I will throw in a "real thoughts going through my head" every once in a while. 

5. Repeat question: Summarize your week in blogland and in real life.
Blogland is, what you see is what you get.  Except you will never see me write about my views of religion and politics.  I love people for what they are, not who they follow.  I will never talk down about any President that we have, as he/she was voted in.  No body is perfect.  If I start reading a post that starts going off on politics or religion, I will read it, but won't comment.  I really get bugged by people that will leave nasty comments.  I will continue to follow unless the hatred keeps happening.  I'm pretty much the same in real life.  We are all human beings, we are all different.  We all have the right to be here and have our beliefs.  And now I'm going to shut up because I can see you all reading blah, blah, blah.

Also, for all you that didn't know it's Friday.  Oh, and I got my new glasses.  They rock. :)

I Have A Surprise

Hey, guess what?  No really, guess what?  Have you guessed yet?  Guess what happened last night?  Give up? 

It Snowed!!!!

I know, you are shocked.  Me too.  Cuz we sure haven't had enough of it this winter.  The good news is, I could see the cracks in the sidewalk.  What?  Lately we have gotten at last 6 inches at a time (that's what she said), so seeing the cracks was a welcome thing to my eyes.  I know, it surely doesn't take much. 

I'm going to make one of these. 

Maybe mother nature will get the hint.

Arranging My Thoughts

Do you ever wake up, your stomach is growling, and you have random thoughts going on.  Nope?  Well I do.  So, in order to arrange them and file them away, I'm channeling my favorite NCIS chick Abby.  That girl rocks. 

The drive to work was packed this morning.  I'm thinking that there was some kind of announcement made that all slow drivers were free to be on the road.  Honestly, this was how it was....

I'm also thinking of getting one of these......
Would that be all sorts of awesome or what?

I promise, if I were to pull up to this sign, I would hand the person that had the guts to put it up, a huge tip and big ole Dazee smile. 

All I can say about this saying is, so true. 

And now, a public service announcement. 

Do you suffer with Carpel Tunnel?
Do you suffer with Diabetic Neuropathy?
How about the dreaded arthritis?
Then this is the machine for you. 

The Black & Decker Automatic Jar Opener
You don't even need to have any of the above symptoms.  I'm sure you all have had that one jar lid that just wouldn't open.  Or that "strong man" isn't around to help you.

My son gave me this for Christmas many moons ago.  I love, love, love it.  My hubby's grandmother had arthritis so bad that her fingers all pointed to the side.  I wish everyday that she had had one of these machines while she was alive. 

There you have it.  Just a smidge of the things rambling around in my snot infested brain.

Dear...... 1.11.11


 Hello all you Tuesday lovers.  What, you don't like Tuesdays?  I love them, because it means it's time for our Dear..... letters.  Play along if you would like.  Just remember to grab the code for the little button over there and link on up. 
Dear Winter.  I have written a little poem just for you.  Read it and weep.
Winter please just go away
I can't stand you, this I say
Notice my big ugly face
Telling you to leave with grace
Every year it is the same
Roll on out, no need for fame.
 Dear Snot.  Just where are you hiding when you are not being a cold?  This is an age old question that really boggles my mind.  Could you please go back to wherever that is.  Thanks.
Dear Carpal Tunnel.  Thank you so much for making your presence known yesterday.  Between the temperatures in the teens, my diabetes, and you, I was hurting kind of bad.  Please don't come visit today.  I would really appreciate it.

Dear Dazee's Work Email.  I don't know if you have noticed, but I am a woman.  Always have been, always will be.  When you send myself emails telling me that I can get viagra at an awesome price, I get cornfused.  Is there something you are trying to tell me?
Dear Baby Sister and Renee.  Thank you so much for linking up each week.  You two make it possible for me to keep this link going.  It's too bad that other people just haven't found out how much fun these Dear..... letters are.  When my ship comes in, you gals are first on my list.  Oh wait, I live in Utah, there is no ocean here.  Dang, I guess my ship won't be making it anytime soon.
Dear New Glasses.  Please get here soon.  I'm super excited to wear you. "See" you later.  PS:  I just totally cracked myself up just now.
Dear Guys At Work.  Did you not notice I had a different color hair yesterday?  Just wondering.
Dear People Reading This Blog.  Link on up.  It's fun. 

Until next week.
