I'll Take the Category: Odd Tattoos, Life Experiences and Vegetables

I need to enroll in some sort of fair food/chocolate detox program. Holy crap. I’m so full of fried food and chocolate, ‘be still my heart’ is not an expression I’d like to use anytime soon. My heart is currently full of too much fat. It just might stop.

So this week will be spent detoxing and getting back on track.

Highlights… oh… well… tear drop tattoos, bigger police presence, being guarded by someone armed with an assault rifle… just to name a few.

Interesting. Definitely interesting.

On a lighter side, one of the funny women in our room informed the fair deputy armed to protect us, that he is considered a risk taker because he smokes. I figured it out just by the assault rifle in his lap. I mean… that was a pretty good indicator in my book. Forget that he lights up…


Cool weather here, the boys are off from school tomorrow as the school grounds are cleaned up. I’m getting a trailer hitch for the asexual Mom-mobile as I’m taking the boys camping this weekend and I need a better way to haul all our bikes. Oh… yeah, camping. That means no blogging and probably lots of rain. Of course blog fodder…

Anyway, I’m taking them to see the new Veggie Tales movie, I believe it’s called, “The Pirates Who Don’t Do Much of Anything”. I’m a huge Veggie Tales fan. I’d probably want to see it even if I didn’t have kids. I mean, who in the hell can resist a cartoon with talking vegetables?!


I’m off to bed. I think my ears have finally quit ringing…

Tear drop tattoos are too close to clownish for me. [shudder]

Camping is nice and quiet. That should help with the ears. Have fun, and take gator repellant!

"we are the pirates who don't do anything, we just stay home and lie around... and if you ask us to do anything, we'll just tell you, we don't do anything! well I've never been to Greenland and I've never been to Denver and I've never buried treasure in st Louis or st Paul and I've never been to Moscow and I've never been to Tampa and I've never been to Boston in the fall......"
going to be stuck in my head now for days...
fun song to confuse roommates with though!

"Camping is nice and quiet"

Obviously, Peggy has never been camping with three boys.

As my boys tell me all the time, "Good luck with that".

FWIW, I was really disappointed in The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything. The other Veggie Tales shows/movies have been so much better. I was so disappointed because I, too, love the veggies.

Oh ... even with the boys, it is quiet compared to a carnival! I have three boys as well. I guess "quiet" is a relative term!

Frequently we have many boys at our house. They seem to clump here. We have had upwards of a dozen visiting at one time, and yet it is still pretty (amazingly!) quiet. Except for this kid named Patrick. Damn! That boy makes up for all the rest.

Red Wine and Dark Chocolate. A little of both and you'll live forever. Unfortunately, I think more is more. But can you live beyond forever?
...a quandry.
