Is it a sex blog? A mommy blog? A bitch & moan blog? Um, . . . yeah. This is my place to be totally honest. In my real life, I feel like I'm always lying to somebody about something. Here, I am totally honest. Brutally so. However, no matter what bad things I say about my kids, I adore them and would never ever really, say, sell them on Ebay. The husband, often referred to as Spousehole, is another story. Oh yeah - if you are under 18 (or if you are my husband), please leave now.

TMI Tuesday

Click the icon to come play with us!


1. What is your favorite Thanksgiving food?

Stuffing with gravy!! To. Die. For. Bread stuffing with 3 kinds of bread (white, wheat, and pumpernickel are what I used in mine for Thanksgiving last weekend*). Gravy made from turkey drippings and stock made by simmering the giblets with onion, garlic, celery, and carrots (but toss the giblets or feed 'em to the dog. Do you really want to eat waste-filtering organs?)

2. You can flip a switch that will wipe any band or musical artist out of existence. Which one will it be?

Any and all rap "artists" whose lyrics are misogynistic, violent, homophobic, or just plain stupid. Which is the majority.


3. You seem to be having an excellent day because you just came across a hundred-dollar bill on the sidewalk. Holy crap, a hundred bucks! How are you gonna spend it?

Take my family out for a nice dinner that I don't have to cook. I like cooking, but three meals, 7 days a week gets to be a bit much.

4. What is your favorite curse word?

Shitfuckdamn, said just like that, all run together. Also Futher Mucker.

5. Rufus appears out of nowhere with a time-traveling phone booth. You can go anytime in the PAST. What time are you traveling to and what are you going to do when you get there?

I would go back to 1968 and stop the assassinations of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Robert F. Kennedy. I think that would make today a much different, and hopefully even better, world.

Bonus (as in optional):You accidentally eat some radioactive vegetables. They were good, and what's even cooler is that they endow you with the super-power of your choice! What's it gonna be?

Invisibility! The ultimate for eavesdropping on others!

*I was sort-of trapped into making Thanksgiving last weekend. Last month we invited my in-laws to have Thanksgiving with us and they accepted. The plan was they would stay over at our house a couple days on their way from their Florida home to their Michigan home, where they'll stay through Christmas. Then they decided that they needed to get back to Michigan earlier, so they called up and said "We'll come the weekend before Thanksgiving and we'll just have the Thanksgiving dinner then!" Which sounds great, except they didn't ASK me (the cook and hostess), they just sprung it on me as a done deal. Sprung it on both me AND Spousehole. So, dutiful daughter-in-law that I am, I put together an amazingly tasty and good-looking meal. It was fabulous and left my father-in-law insisting that I provide my mother-in-law with the recipes because it was one of the best Thanksgiving meals he has ever had. Question now is what do Spousehole, the kids, and I do on the real Thanksgiving day? We've run through the leftovers pretty quickly, so do I make ANOTHER traditional Thanksgiving meal, make a slighter smaller meal with just a turkey breast or a large chicken, or do we just go to the movies, go bowling, and take the kids to the buffet at Shoney's or Fatz?

To blog is a self-invasion of privacy

The time-travel question made me think of this wonderfully hilarious Internet forum for time-travelers.

I would think it might be fun to do a family day of movies and bowling and buffet on Thanksgiving, if you are not feeling up to more cooking.

Shitfuckdamn. Grrrherhahahahhahaa.

Maybe you could do something for the less fortunate on Thanksgiving Day since you already had the big feast?

Your Church probably has some volunteer things posted somewhere. Maybe even something the rug-rats could do.

Your favorite Thanksgiving food is my favorite too, except I love the cornbread stuffing.

For the time traveling I would go back to the 1940's and visit my parents' families. I would love to really experience what their lives were like as they grew up rather than just hearing the stories.

I am also with you on the invisibility thing. There are oh so many things I would do with invisibility.

My suggestion to you for Thanksgiving Day is that unless you are really looking forward to cooking another Thanksgiving meal is that you do the movie/bowling/buffet thing.

1) I like the whole package - turkey (smoked or grilled is my favorite), stuffing, gravy, squash, cranberry jelly. . . And Molly makes a sweet potato casserole (made with eggs, WAY too much brown sugar, and almonds; oh. . . my. . . goodness. . .) that is incredible. And of course, pumpkin pie. . .

2) We think alike on this one. . .

3) My son and I once found over $100 (it was an 'odd' amount) in a convenience-store parking lot. Without telling the clerk what we'd found, we left our phone number, and told them if anyone called for a lost item, to have them call us. Within an hour, a woman called us, told us the exact amount, and told us it was her rent money. After the clerk called us five times, trying to guess the amount. . . Shithead.

4) Just the other day, I was sitting at my desk, and one of my computer runs bombed, most disgustingly, and I could only say, "SON of a BITCH" (I can't really show you how I drew it out, for emphasis). Causing heads to pop up over cube walls within a 25-foot radius. . .

5) Wow; I can think of so many fascinating times and places I'd like to visit, if such were possible. . . I'd love to meet Einstein, or Isaac Newton. Or Jesus. . .

Bonus) I agree; invisibility would be really cool. . .

What would your family be up for, in the way of Thanksgiving 2.0?

Of course, blogging is a kind of 'invisibility', isn't it?

Shoney's all the way!

Phyllis Renée said...

After making Thanksgiving for your in-laws, I vote for the movie, bowling, and buffet. You deserve a break!

Trail said...

For T-day dinner, Ryan's would be another possibility. Or, if you want to avoid crowds, try the Chinese restaurant or the Mexican place.

Vixen said...

I hear ya on #2! Good call.

I would skip making yet another TG meal and have a family day. :)

Old Knudsen said...

you can try to go back to 1968 but you won't stop me. Nothing wrong with a dead Kennedy I knew Joe the father they are all chips off the old block .

Slick said...

Aaahhh, the invisibility would be the greatest shit alive!

Your curse word gave me a smile :)

I like what Troll said. The idea of helping others is fantastic.
