Woo Pig Sooiiee! Go Razorbacks!

Razorbacks have a 9-1 start including a perfect 6-0 record in Southeastern Conference play. The Hogs’ 6-0 start in the SEC is the best in school history and the longest conference winning streak to start a season since Arkansas won all seven of its games in the Southwest Conference in 1988. They are currently ranked 5th in the nation and are expected to finish undefeated in their regular season play. If all plays out as I predict, the Hogs will more than likely face the Fla. Gators for the title game. If that happens, it will be a good thing the Feller is in another state. We love and support each other all year long but HE is a Gator and I am a Hog.

Yes, I admit it.......I am a pig.

Today is my big sister's birthday.
"Happy Birthday to you, happy birthday to you! Happy Birthday, you old Far-Art! Happy Birthday to you!"

I sent her a nice card and gift earlier this week but I have not spoken to her today...however, she knows I love her.

She has been at the hospital today with her hubby who had a bad accident a few weeks ago. He had to have more tests and "icky guy stuff". (According to my Feller, it is God's way of balancing out womens' female miseries....just as most of us gals are settling into "The Change" with some modicum of acceptance, a lot of our men get a big fat prostate and faulty plumbing and all-that-stuff.....I am still waiting on them to pass a cantelope out of their nether regions...and then we will be even)

Anyway, I will talk to her tomorrow and graciously remind her that she is HOW much older than me....and we will laugh cause that is just how we are.

I get to see her in about a week and a half and I.cannot.wait.

Love you, Sissy....truly I do.

*DISCLAIMER: I love men, but they are fun to pick at!

Masculine Maladies...

One day my housework-challenged husband decided to wash his sweatshirt. Seconds after he stepped into the laundry room, he shouted to me, "What setting do I use on the washing machine?"

"It depends," I replied. "What does it say on your shirt?"

He yelled back, "University of Oklahoma."

And they say blondes are dumb...

A couple is lying in bed.

The man says, "I am going to make you the happiest woman in the world."
The woman replies, "I'll miss you..."

* * *

"It's just too hot to wear clothes today," Jack says as he stepped out of the shower, "Honey, what do you think the neighbors would think if I mowed the lawn like this?"

"Probably that I married you for your money," she replied.

Q: What do you call an intelligent, good looking, sensitive man?
A: A rumor

* * *

A man and his wife, now in their 60's, were celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary. On their special day a good fairy came to them and said that because they had been so good that each one of them could have one wish.

The wife wished for a trip around the world with her husband.

Whoosh! Immediately she had airline/cruise tickets in her hands.

The man wished for a female companion 30 years younger...

Whoosh...immediately he turned ninety!!!

Gotta love that fairy!

Dear Lord,

I pray for Wisdom to understand my man; Love to forgive him; And Patience for his moods. Because, Lord, if I pray for Strength, I'll beat him to death.

Q: Why do little boys whine?
A: They are practicing to be men.

* * *

Q: What do you call a handcuffed man?
A: Trustworthy.

* * *

Q: What does it mean when a man is in your bed gasping for breath and calling your name?
A: You did not hold the pillow down long enough.

* * *

Q: Why do men whistle when they are sitting on the toilet?
A: It helps them remember which end they need to wipe.

* * *

Q: How do you keep your husband from reading your e-mail?
A: Rename the mail folder "Instruction Manuals"

* * *

Ok, Ok,......I am NOT man-bashing, just having a little fun. Ya' gotta' admit, some of them are just TOO funny!
Happy TGIF!
(and don't forget to hug your guy today!)

Where've You Been?

create your own visited states map

Here's a fun little linkie thingie....just select each state you've been to and get a cool little map with your states in red (I would have preferred pink, thank you) this.

I think I need to branch out a bit.....I seem to have been avoiding the west coast...and the ones at the top. Bottom heavy, just like me.

I also seem to favor the southern states.......which makes sense - since I AM a "GRITS".

create your own visited countries map

Here's one for visited countries. Sadly, my passport has not seen that much action.

No, I have not updated in several days and no, I do not have anything profound to offer.
Some days, I simply cannot do more than read others' blogs and wonder how and where they find the time and inspiration to post such entertaining and insightful posts.
I have a lot of utterly delightful thoughts and stories and poems and monologues skittering through my brain......but putting them into written word is just so much work...
I think it is because I spend SO much time entering written words for "WORK"....that nasty four letter word.
Yes, I am the hardest boss I have ever worked for. Ever.

My Celebrity Look-Alikes (or ARE-YOU-KIDDING?!)

Okay, I can hang with Madonna, Heather, Sally, Shakira (wish I could shake like that!) fact, Madonna came up on every picture I tried......but I have not adopted any kiddos so the resemblance stops there.

That Benita chick just scares me! *eww* Can we say Harsh?!

Michelle Kwan?? Hum, I LIVE with an Asian, but I sure don't LOOK like one.

Was surprised Elizabeth Montgomery, Samantha on "Bewtiched", did not pop up as I have heard my whole life that I look like her....go figure.

I tried a few of my daughter's just for fun. She and I both got a Susan Lucci hit so I guess that means she is indeed my "mini-me" as we have heard her whole life.......poor child.

(We are both green-hazel eyed blondes, average size, not tiny, not did we get a dark, teeny boned chick like Erica?!)

The strangest hit was Gary I know for sure.

I would make one fugly guy.......

How Girly Are You?

You Are 60% Girly

You're a little girly, a little boyish, and probably a whole lot indie.

You have your own unique style, and it pretty much defies gender lines.

Ummm....My Pamper Me Snack!

It is a dreary, rainy, cold day..........and I knew just the pick-me-up I needed.
No, it is not diet-friendly but it sure was yummy!
A slice of moist Amaretta Liqueur cake with a dollop of Italian Fig "Casa Giulia" jam (slightly warmed) and a steaming cup of Pumpkin Spice coffee........yes, a BIG mix of flavors but JUST what I was craving.

What's YOUR favorite "make-me-cozy", *sinful* snack?

WFMW Thanksgiving HELP Site

Even though I will be traveling to see my family in Arkansas during Thanksgiving, I just LOVE this site! I know there are a lot of "help" sites available but this one covers all the bases from deep frying a turkey to decorating for the season. There are a lot of cool links and has a little bit of everything.
Just clicking through it gets me in the mood for some cranberry sauce, mulled cider and cornbread dressing!
