Let's Call it "Blog Stew"

In yet another entry from my totally random brain, there should be something for everyone here. Football, Tiger, make-up that burns, funerals, porn calendars... or not porn calendars..., sad, happy... it's all here.


Let's talk College Ball for a minute.

They so need play offs. It has really started to piss me off.

Listen, I love Tim Tebow. I think he's a great kid who has been given many gifts. Do I think he'll make a good pro-player? No clue. I think, however, he has a shot at being a good coach.

So as much as I love Tim, there is absolutely no reason he should have been able to set the BCS records he set last night. None.

It comes down to the fact that the Gators were so incredibly mismatched against Cincinnati, that it was allowed to happen.

I know some of you are from other places than SEC ball, but SEC ball is not the same as Big East Ball. Bring it on... the SEC will continue to prove it.

The SEC eats their young every year... and there needs to be a play off system.

Meanwhile, I watched the game, waiting for Urban to blow a heart valve. Evidently it didn't happen or it would have beaten out Tiger Woods for headlines.

Which in all my randomness today brings me to my favorite quote of the last month, from my brother who said to me on the phone about Tiger Woods, "You know if there are 11, there are 35. The other 24 just don't want to look like Whores."

That cracked me up.

Anyway, back to Urban. My husband was expressing dismay at Urban's complete lack of thinking things through when he did his 'I'm retiring/no I'm not' stint.

My reply?

"Hun. You are giving him too much credit. He is a COACH. If he hadn't made it to the big show, he'd be coaching high school ball and teaching driver's ed".

So I nominate both Urban and Tiger for this year's award of 'Needs a better set of advisers' or "Listen to your advisers/friends in 2010". Urban because his decisions effect too many others and Tiger because... you can't convince me he didn't have folks in his inner circle knowing what he was up to. If they were condoning it... he needs to drop them like a bad habit. If they weren't, he needs to listen.

Good Grief.

I was putting on my make up the other day when my lips started to burn. First thought? "I have an allergy to this new lipstick".

It was one of those freebies you get when you buy make up at a counter. (Note to guys: yes, they give us freebies at the make up counters. It's to keep us coming back. It doesn't work for me.)

I figured within an hour my lips would be swollen, giving me an Angelina Jolie look. (Yes, I know who she is...)

Alas, it did not happen, the only benefit I could possibly see in having an allergic reaction. Actually, my lips quit burning within 15 minutes.

The next morning? I forgot. I put it on and BOOM! I remembered, as I expected small flames to leap from my lips. I looked at the lipstick name and it said, "Rouge Sensation, Ginger Root Velvet".


WHO WANTS their lipstick to burn? Hell, if I'd seen Ginger in the name, I'd have tossed it right then. Ginger BURNS, hence I don't eat it with sushi.

Two rules here: When I eat, I don't want my mouth on fire. When I wear make up, I don't want it to hurt.


I'm glad FSU won their game. I like Bobby Bowden. A lot. It was time for him to go, but I like him.


I have a funeral to attend on Tuesday. She died New Year's Eve, just before Midnight. It's going to suck. I'm not going to wear mascara.

January makes me nervous. Death seems to visit my family more in January... one grandfather, one grandmother, my mother in law... always in the first week of January. If I can make it to week two, I should be in the free and clear.

Hunh. I had another thought regarding porn calendars... but it needs its own post.

That'll be all now donkey.

"porn calendars" and "donkey" should never be used in the same post. I hate to see what you will get googled for now.

Happy New Year!

Sticks- OK, that was funny. That'll be all now Donkey, is a phrase used often here. My sister uses it too.

As far as googling, good grief, I'm #1 for something like windows phone facebook icon blow job. I did that post a couple months ago about that commercial. No joke, someone googled me for that yesterday. Woot! I'm Number One!!!

I hope this is not some odd omen of what I have in store for this year...

Sad, just sad. My girlfriend with young children also left this world one year ago New Year's Eve...
Good call on the mascara.

do you mean, "that'll do Donkey, that'll do."

When you have the game won, it's time to pull the starters and let the second string get some playing time. What good is a record if you set it playing a much over matched team like Florida was playing. It's a joke. It's like rubbing it in. It's also a lack of class. My friends and I were rooting for Florida but all of us were saying it was time to pull Tebow.

Crap. I just did a Momism. I can't win. Between being like Dad and not recognizing anyone that is from movies or TV and Mom and her confusing words and sayings... I'm frickin' DOOMED. Except, well, people will laugh.

It's true what you say about SEC football. I think the playoff game has already occurred....Alabama vs Florida a few weeks ago. I predict Alabama will be having some Longhorn steaks in the title game.
