Brain Puke XIV

Lots o shit swirling around in the toilet bowl that is my brain. Let's capture some of it here.

Right off the bat - FUCK YOU, CONGRESS AND FUCK YOU, NRA!

Second - FUCK YOU, BOSTON COWARD BOMBERS!

Third - FUCK YOU, FAUX NEWS!

Wow, that felt good!

YAYZ to Uruguay and New Zealand for saying OK to same-sex marriage this week!

So the Kash Kow got her way in divorce court.  Watch out, Kanye, this bitch is trouble with a capital T!

Kash Kow and Jessica Simpson should have an ass-off to see whose is bigger during pregnancy.  I bet my fat ass could not even compete with theirs!

I lost 4 pounds last week!

I pushed down 80 pounds on the tricep machine today!

Ya know all those pretty flower pix I took last weekend?  The daffodils and hyacinths?  This week they are all dead.  Except for these hardy souls which popped open this week.  Enjoy the tri-color daffodils, dr. spo!


The weeping cherry, bradford pear, forsythia, and mountain laurel are still loverly; they do not fade as quickly as the flowers.  I am also seeing peony stalks pushing up the dirt.  And the honey locust is beginning to bud; when that tree blooms, OMB, the air smells so damn good!

It's been all disco all the time here the past 2 days via AOLRADIO.COM.  I must confess that my allergies and a touch of depression had me sinking Thursday and Friday.  I stayed home from work and I didn't want to see anyone.

To combat the blues, I put on some disco music and I did some knitting and baking.  I made my never-fail vegan chocolate cake and a chocolate cherry cake, which will go to work with me on Monday.  I started a new knitting project which I hope to wear during next year's blogger meetup (only 355 days til...).

Tomorrow there will be a homemade quiche for breakfast.  And cawfee, of course (no rubbish).

Instead of snow like RJ and CB received, we got rain Thursday and Friday.

Spouse went to the DIY store today (without me, thank bob!); he came home with 2 bags of bird seed, 2 red pepper plants, 2 tomato plants, 1 cherry tomato plant, and a bag of starter soil for the veggie plants.

Damn, the backyard grass (the legal kind) got high all of a sudden (bwhahahahaha).  Time for spouse to fire up the ole john deere for the season!

Meanwhile, out in Denver today, they are puffing on the wildwood weed (the illegal kind, which really should be legal).

The cats are currently asleep on the sunporch (in the sun, of course) and spouse is passed out in his laz-y-boy.  WTF am I the only one awake?

Cubby, WHERE ARE YOU?  We love you and miss you!

Dammit, I wish I had a disco dance partner nearby! :(  Exercise AND weight loss rolled into fun!  Graphic courtesy of Sean.

    1. smooches, honey! I try not to do drugs for the depression; but sometimes it gets so bad that I have to take a welbutrin. depression and insomnia were things I picked up during/after menopause (yes, I AM that old, but I don't ACT 58.5).

  2. Crocus, Hyacinth, Daffodils are our wake-up call to Spring. They are far too delicate to last for long. The Hyacinths are just now exploding here, making us heady with their scent.

    Congrats on the weight loss, and I must tell you that whenever I get a case of the blue meanies, the music goes on and I dance around the room. Honey, you don't need a partner for Disco.

    Great to hear about the veggie plants I hope they do well for you. There is nothing like a fresh picked tomato to make a meal more satisfying.

    1. "Honey, you don't need a partner for Disco." - sure ya do! it makes it more fun. I would LOVE to be a baby to some guy's johnny castle (50 points if you know the movie reference).

      spouse hopes the veggies do better than last year. he had a decent, not overwhelming, harvest last year. overwhelming is where you are giving away the harvest to friends/co-workers/neighbors before it goes bad.

  3. Very nice! Congrats on the weight lose, I've dropped a few myself, and worked out like crazy this week.

    And it's too bad 420 isn't legal all over. Drat the luck.

    Peace <3

    1. YAYZ for you!

      I made a challenge to myself to look better for next year's blogger meetup. and it ain't gonna be easy either!

      I never saw the big attraction in maryjane; my drug of choice in college was booze. but that's just me.

  4. AM,

    Next time you are bored, lonely, and ready to disco, CALL ME! I'll bring over some of my fine illegal weed and we'll party like it's 1979! :-) (Just ask your spouse...!)

    Love,
    Janey
    PS: Looking forward to seeing the poncho!!!!

    1. spouse's reaction: "OMG! I remember it well!"

      I will let you know when your poncho is officially finished.

      smooches, girlfriend! :)

  5. Good morning!

    Good on you for being down four pounds! Little-by-little is how it's done.

    We're we're getting ready to start up the gardening. We've got 100 containers of winter-sowed annuals starting to sprout!

    Cheers!

    1. lessons learned - fast food and portion size packs on the pounds quickly. decrease/eliminate both.

      spouse planted his veggies today. hopefully no more frost until november.

      have a good week! :)

  6. Well, this blog covers a mighty big field. Sounds like you've been at Dr Spo's new whisky purchase. You're not sneakily tucked away in Colorado, are you?

    Congrats on the good news bits - especially the weight-loss which, I see, has got you tickled pink!

    Btw: I've also been wondering for many days what's become of Cubby. Been thinking of sending him an e-mail. I'm assuming he's okay otherwise someone else would surely have blogged the news. Haven't noticed any comments from him on others' blogs either. Maybe just taking a break? At least that's what I hope it is.

    1. nope, not traveling with spo; at home in philly with spouse and the pussies.

      I have sent cubby e-mail and have not received a response. I am getting concerned; I wonder if he knows how much we all love him and his witty ways?

      smooches and pip pip! :)

    2. Do let us know if you get anything about Cubby, please, A.M. I'll be feeling uneasy until I do hear what the cause of the silence is.

    3. well, I see that he just visited kelly and jeff in richmond over the weekend, so he is still amongst the living.

      Delete
    4. Thanks, A.M. Much relief here. I'll go and look.

    5. there's no pix, just a written mention. of course, I am jealous x infinity cause I loves me some cubby!

      Delete
    6. Yes, it's all a bit puzzling. I see he's got a new blog page but hasn't posted anything yet. Maybe he's going to start again, only with the followers that he wants. So I'll wait a bit longer to see what's happening rather than foist my presence somewhere where it may not be wanted.

  7. Three people were shot at the 420 rally in Denver on Saturday. So much for a peaceful Rocky Mountain high. There’s more snow on the way today. We could get up to a foot.

    1. I read about that shooting; why?

      continue to gaze at my spring flowers; at this rate, you will go right into summer with no spring at all! and it's playing havoc with your baseball season too!

  10. Sounds kinda like reading my own rants, especially the first four or five.
    And here at Casa Bob y Carlos we will be receiving our brand spanking new riding mower this morning.
    The fights over who mows the lawn will begin almost immediately.

    1. those of us with like minds will always have similar rants.

      lucky for me I don't fight spouse over the outside chores; he does them. my allergies/asthma kinda preclude me. besides, I was raised in the city; we had no dirt, just concrete! I always say "my hands were not born to touch dirt!"

      you two play nice and take turns with the tractor! OR ELSE! ;-)
