No Pain, No…

Thursday, May 29th, 2008

Mr. Hot Stuff P.T. appears to have an overweening interest in the female chestal area.

How do I know this? Because of every muscle group in my body that was worked yesterday, my pectorals hurt more than anything else. *sigh*

And sadly, it’s not like any extra work can make ‘em more perky. I’m afraid childbirth and a year of nursing have had a hand in that.

Now, if we can turn attention to my butt, that’s another story…

Awww! Ain’t That *Sweet*…?

*snicker*

Check out Derek Kurth with a soon-to-be classic tune…

Hat tip to Robbie. :)

*edit: In my continued link-clicking, I found this version, too… just great. :)

Suspicious Minds

Tuesday, May 27th, 2008

“Mom, I made my bed, an’ I cleaned your desk. An’ look at your night-table. (pause) I can make your bed, too.”

Is it just me, or should this be a cause for concern?? She hasn’t presented her list of demands yet, but I suppose it’s just a matter of time…

* * * *

In other news, Boy Einstein, in a matter of about 15 seconds of conversation, gave me a whole new story idea. As much as this is great, it’s also a double-edged sword, because it adds to my ever-growing list of ideas. Oy! But this is another shortie one that I might be able to quickly finish. (Well, “quickly” in Kris’ world, at least…)

I don’t have enough hours in a day to work on all these ideas…

Ride ‘Em Cowgirl!

Sunday, May 25th, 2008

It’s not a wedding party weekend unless you get lightly splattered with horseshit.

No, you probably don’t want to know. Although despite all that, it was an awesome event by all accounts.

Congrats, Deeter. ;)

*For clarification — no, it wasn’t *at* the wedding. It was while on the “next-day, gift-opening party” hayride today… 

Rejection, Schmejection…

Friday, May 23rd, 2008

Okay, so, Lovely got its first thumbs-down.

It’s all right. I’m disappointed, but I can live with it. It’s moved on to its next potential home now, and maybe they’ll love it enough there to hug it and squeeze it and call it George*.

Meh. I get to drink at the wedding tomorrow night, so all’s good.

It would be nice to have another sale one of these days, though…

Have a great day, folks. I’ll catch you later!

*Gold star for you if you know the reference… 

Peripheral Busy-ness

Thursday, May 22nd, 2008

There is a family wedding taking place on Saturday. The Offspring has the honour of taking the role of Flower Girl in this grand event.

Why is it, however, that even when the wedding is not *yours*, it seems that there are a zillion things to co-ordinate and accomplish?

I have been a bad Do-Bee and have not yet made a paper list of all necessities — I suppose I should get to it, perhaps some time today, before I start forgetting important things.

As you can surmise, my presence in the InterWeebs will be sporadic over the next two days, and let’s not even talk about word counts…

However, I shall return once I have recuperated from my forthcoming hangover, and perhaps even post a photo, if I get a good one.

Catch you on the flip side!

Inappropriate Edibles

Tuesday, May 20th, 2008

Let me just start out by saying I love bananas. They’re probably one of my most favourite fruit in the world.

However, I don’t like the process of eating them in public. They’re just entirely too phallic for anyone’s good. I don’t need to feel like I’m deep-throating my lunch. Honestly.

(Now there you go — we’ll see how many random Google hits I’ll get with the phrase “deep-throat” on this blog.

Hi, Visitors! Stay a while! Read! Buy my books! Hehehe.)

I know. I’ve got nothing important to say at the moment, so I’m blogging about fruit. Yep. Almost time for me to hang up my keyboard…

So what about you? Any food foibles out there, o ye lurkers?

Just For Fun

Sunday, May 18th, 2008

Found this via Doug. Fun lip-synch video of a Randy Newman song. I think I’m going to have to find this for my MP3…


(Un)Zipped

Friday, May 16th, 2008

Boy Einstein and I have recently started using Zip.ca — an online DVD rental service. (Those of you who use or have heard of NetFlix — this is the same type of thing.)

If you don’t know what these sorts of things are, you register, and for a fee, you can receive X-number of DVDs per month through the mail. You can hang on to the disc as long as you want. There are no late charges. However, you don’t get the next one sent to you until you return the first one.

The only drawback is you can’t get the movie you want now, now. If it’s not available, the company moves down to the next available movie on your list — which might not be what you’re in the mood for, but that’s what you get.

The fun part, however, is the selection process. Our list is now 50 titles long, and full of all sorts of genres. One of the first discs we received was Season 1 of the TV show, Monk, which so far I quite like.
The site also has a number of foreign films, cult classics and obscure titles that you won’t find at your local Blockbuster, so that’s a definite plus, too.

I’ve also been adding videos for the kidlet, too, which is fun. Especially all the seasons of Animaniacs. I think I’m more excited about that than she will be…

Meme, The Impossible Meme!

Wednesday, May 14th, 2008

No, it’s not impossible. However, this is what happens when Kris’ brain is apparently malfunctioning slightly. (Just slightly. No comments from the Peanut Gallery.)

Again, it’s all about ME, but from YOUR point of view!

Put your answers in comments, please! (And if you want me to answer this for you, just say the word!) :) (I’ve also edited some questions for various reasons.)

  1. Where did we meet?
  2. Do I smoke?
  3. The colour of my eyes?
  4. Do I have any siblings?
  5. What’s one of my favourite things to do?
  6. What’s my favourite type of music?
  7. Am I shy or outgoing?
  8. Am I a rebel, or do I follow the rules?
  9. Any special talents?
  10. How many children do I have?
  11. If you and I were stranded on a deserted island, what’s one thing I’d bring along?

All righty! Have fun, and let’s see what sorts of guesses you can come up with!
