Break out the chlorine! ....

.... because the gene pool needs some cleaning!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Holy c-o-w, people!!!! Did anyone else read the story titled "Japanese swindled by sheep sold as poodle"???

As if the headline isn't unbelievable enough, the article states that up to TWO THOUSAND people may have fallen for this scam!

Apparently the scam came to light when a Japanese film star went on a daytime talk show and "wondered why her new pet would not bark or eat dog food." HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Apparently, she was "crestfallen when told it was a sheep. " (*slaps knee in merriment!!!!*)

But WAIT ... there's more!

Another couple said they became "suspicious" when they took their "dog" to the groomers to trip its toenails only to be told that it had hooves!!!!

OMG! I can't stop laughing!!!

I mean, if the buyers couldn't tell by looks alone, did they not clue in when when their "poodle" went "baaaa" when they told it to "speak"!?!

These Japanese are obviously not knitters!!!!!! :)

Have y'all picked your turtle contestant in the Great Turtle Race yet?? Biologists are tracking 11 turtles on their migration from Costa Rica to the Galapagos Island over the next two weeks. Doesn't sound too exciting in black and white ... but go check out that website! What a hoot!

My money is on Sundae!! OF COURSE! Like I wouldn't pick the turtle named after a dessert! ;)

And sure, sure ... she's in 10th place at the time of this posting. In fact, it almost looks like she hasn't quite left yet. BUT hey .... a girl's got things to do before she leaves for a long trip. LOTS of packing and whatnot. And maybe she thought she left the stove on or something. Still a long race to go .... she'll get going. You just watch! ;)

Who is your money on??

Minding my own business...

Y'all ... I'm just trying to mind my own business browsing through Craigslist for a lamp. A lamp ... something totally innocuous, right?! And look what I find .... all in today's listings ... sheesh!

The Naked Lady Lamp

Granted, that one is not TOO bad and could even be considered "art".

But this one? ....... I don't think so!

The ad itself is hysterical:

"It's a boob lamp. What can I say. There is light bulb inside that makes the boobs shine."

Hahahahaha! Classy, yes?!

But my favorite lamp ... by FAR ... is this lamp:

I do not know why this lamp amuses me so much. Ah hell ... yes I do ... it's the damn dangley things ... those are priceless!!! Ah ha ha. Man, I am fighting, fighting, fighting to keep myself from picking up the phone and buying this thing. GAH! Love it!!!

Ah well, there ya go. A little Craigslist for you and I didn't even have to look in the personal ad to find the bizarre!

Middle Ages Tech Support Video

I'm so happy! I tried to post the link to this video months ago but the video was removed from YouTube before I could even say "boo". Anyway, it's back .... so take a gander while the link is still valid! It just cracks me up, I tell ya!

Enjoy!!! And Happy Friday!!!!

Picture updates!

Yep, just not "updates" ... but for your patience I have "updates WITH pictures". That's right ... who's your daddy??

First off, another picture of My Pretties.

Sigh. My Pretties are long gone now ... but man, did I love them while I had them.


So what is UP with getting old?? I mean, bad enough that bars don't card me anymore ... but seriously, now the local stores are taking one look at me and printing "age verification bypassed" when I go to buy a cd with explicit lyrics?? What the HELL? Bastards!


On a MUCH better note, I was invited to an AWESOME "thank you" dinner party by friends last week. I helped a girlfriend schlep some clothes from one place to another and for that I was included in a special dinner her husband planned out with the chef at the restaurant where he works.

A full SEVEN COURSE MEAL with a new alcoholic beverage specifically for each dish. I'd tell you about it ... but really ... seven drinks ... who the hell knows what happened! ;)

BUT ... luckily, I brought home the menu.

That second course was by far my favorite. Unfortunately, the meal was created specifically for this night and ya can't get the dishes again. BAH! I'll have to see if that chef is single ... maybe he and I can work out a trade?? (what?? The food was REALLY, REALLY good, damnit!!!) :)

Because did you see?....... "mimosa hollandaise" and "foie gras butter" sauce! Does it get any better than that?? (well, yeah ... if it didn't have 10 million calories per serving I suppose ... but other than that ... no! :))

And that night was the first time (and quite possibly the last! ;)) I've tried a raw oyster. The taste reminded me of growing up boogie boarding on the southern california beaches and getting tossed by a wave and coming up with a mouthful of seawater and sand. Only this had the added "benefit" of the slimy oyster texture. Bleck!. Now, the fried oyster wasn't bad. But given the chance, I'd still select the prawns in mimosa hollandaise instead. Mmm mmm mmm.

Oh, oh ... and did anyone catch the "chicken of the swamp" on the menu? Anyone know what that is?? I've tried it before ... in New Orleans ... if that is any hint! :)

All in all ... an absolutely fantabulous night! Thanks guys!!!!


And finally, reason #37 why it is pointless to try and have nice furniture at my place. This is Emma squashing down the cushions along the back of the sofa. She's cute ... sure ... but seriously ... nice furniture is good too, ya know?? :)

Oh fine ... I'll let her off the hook ... I mean, just look at that face! And the little paw resting over the back of the couch. Too cute!

That's it for now! Hope everyone is having a great week!!
