Small world and a worthy cause...

Dunnski and I were at Shiraz today for lunch and on their counter was a small box full of little polymer heart pins. The flyer on the box caught my attention, the artist is Ron Lehocky, a general pediatrician in Louisville. And, he was mine and my brothers pediatrician many years ago. What a small world.

Dr. Lehocky makes the polymer hearts to raise money for the Cerebral Palsy KIDS Center.

If you are interested in purchasing any hearts please contact Dr. Lehocky at

Because...It really is what it's all about

I have to say that I'm all about the anonymous Hokey. But, not so much into the anonymous Pokey....

Thanks Jera!


Scary huh?

That was the same look I had on my face this morning when some imbecile, jackass, nincompoop decides to merge from the emergency lane into 78 mph traffic going, what I believe to be was about 42 mph.

And, did I mention this act of stupidity was done in front of an EIGHTEEN WHEELER!!!!!!!! Who then had to swerve into the lane of traffic next to him to avoid hitting the already stated imbecile, jackass and nincompoop. Which made me and everyone in front of me do the crazy swerve and slam on our brake routine also.

In a matter of seconds everyone had regained control and was on their merry way. But don't worry about Ms. Cankles who tried to commit suicide AND kill her passengers along with her. She was none too concerned with the mayhem and chaos she had almost brought upon herself and she happily continued on her way cruising at 55 mph, as I cursed her zooming past at my normal 75 mph.

Is it just me...

Or does this vehicle remind you of a red bull can?

How about this Gallopalooza horse outside our office building?

Just some things to think about on this rainy Thursday morning....

the olden days...



I settled in with my laptop last night to catch my weekly dose of drunken train wreck I like to call American Idol. It began with Ryan, gag me with a spoon, Seacrest announcing the music genre for the night would be Rat Pack. Hmmm....I think to myself, who might be the featured artist to mentor the young contestants? Michael Buble? Diana Krall? Tony Bennett?

A camera shot then shows a limo pulling up outside and guess who climbs out?

Jamie Foxx.


Jamie Foxx...Rat Pack? Cause you know, everytime I hear Kayne West "Golddigger"....I think of Rat Pack.

Ohhh wait...Jamie has a new movie that has just been released, could this have anything to do with his appearance?

As I post this entry Adam has made it again through the bottom three. I must ask, how many personalities does that kid have? And why does he have to stick his tongue out when he sings? It's really gross. He needs to stop doing that, I mean really! NOT attractive.

That was what she said...

An oldie...but a goodie...

This is a blog post I originally posted in November 2007. I still get google hits on this post today...I guess we never can underestimate the power of a comfy pair of panties...

Ahhhh....It's Saint Eve!!!

Yup, it's official, I am a dork. I went to Kohl's the other day to buy some new intimate apparel. I found some very comfy and super cute panties in some cool colors. So I bought like 12 pair! I was telling Dunnski about them and we went back to see if a different Kohl's location had any. As we were browsing around, I said to him, "Here they are, the name brand is Steve, and Steve really makes a comfy pair of panties!" He looks up at the sign and says, "It's St.Eve, not Steve." So, there ya go. I am a dork.

If you look close at the tag, It does look like "steve", but we did have a good laugh, it was worth it.

Life Story

After you've been to bed together for the first time,
without the advantage or disadvantage of any prior acquaintance,
the other party very often says to you,
Tell me about yourself, I want to know all about you,
what's your story? And you think maybe they really and truly do

sincerely want to know your life story, and so you light up
a cigarette and begin to tell it to them, the two of you
lying together in completely relaxed positions
like a pair of rag dolls a bored child dropped on a bed.

You tell them your story, or as much of your story
as time or a fair degree of prudence allows, and they say,
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh,
each time a little more faintly, until the oh
is just an audible breath, and then of course

there's some interruption. Slow room service comes up
with a bowl of melting ice cubes, or one of you rises to pee
and gaze at himself with mild astonishment in the bathroom mirror.
And then, the first thing you know, before you've had time
to pick up where you left off with your enthralling life story,
they're telling you their life story, exactly as they'd intended to all

and you're saying, Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh,
each time a little more faintly, the vowel at last becoming
no more than an audible sigh,
as the elevator, halfway down the corridor and a turn to the left,
draws one last, long, deep breath of exhaustion
and stops breathing forever. Then?

Well, one of you falls asleep
and the other one does likewise with a lighted cigarette in his mouth,
and that's how people burn to death in hotel rooms.

I do like Lady GaGa's music..

But, I think she should stick to the blond wigs...

Because when she is a brunette................

she looks like a healthy Amy Winehouse... NOT a good look for anyone.

Answers to the post below....Sunday puzzles on Friday...

Click on comments to see the answers to the puzzle in the post below...Thanks for playing...

Sunday puzzles on a Friday...

Every answer is the name of a popular magazine. Name the title of the magazine from the anagram.

For example, given "weird," the answer would be "Wired."

Ready? Here we go...

1. item

2. laurel

3. modern tort

4. senesce

5. adrape

6. entraps

7. queries

8. tenfour

9. sharper

10. brooked

Next Week's Challenge

Take the phrase "more corruptness." Rearrange these 15 letters to name a popular magazine. Tip: It's a magazine this phrase definitely does not apply to, so it's more of an "anti-gram" than an anagram!

I will post the answers in the next blog posts comments. Good luck!

Shhh.....don't tell Dunnski

But he is in for a treat tonight....

I need a new razor...

Separated at birth?

Garrison Keillor is one of my favorite weekend hosts on APM, A Prairie Home Companion.

He also writes a very interesting advice column at

But I have to ask...

was he and Dwight Schrute separated at birth?

I almost forgot to mention...

while Brigitte and I were in Nashville, we ran upon some major stars!

We were shopping and I looked around and there they were, the Old Navy SuperModelquins!!!

It was really obvious that fame has gone to their head...they were asking for a $5 donation every time someone took a picture of them! Can you believe that??

So, of course, I waited until NONE of them were looking and I snapped this shot...I am so sneaky that way!

And I would have SO used an extra leg from the back room to help defend myself if any of them had gotten smart with me.....cause that's how I roll.

How did it know?!?!?!?!



I hope I look this good when I am 63....

What is our world coming to?

We have a 13yr old daughter.

If this had happened to her, there wouldn't be words to describe my anger toward school officials strip searching over an ibuprofen.

Vote for Sarah!

Help my friends daughter win player of the year! Click on the link below and vote for Sarah!! I owe you a beer if you do!! Thanks!!

PLAYER OF THE YEAR: Play-in Game - SPORTS: "Casino Games make a poll"

Sarah Hebble
Women's Tennis

Teaming up with fellow freshman Kylee Johnson, Sarah Hebble was part of a duo that posted an 8-8 record in doubles play this season - the best mark on the team. The pair recorded almost half of the Cardinals' 18 doubles wins this season. Hebble also played at the top singles spot all season, finishing with a 5-13 overall record in singles action. Hebble won the first two collegiate matches of her career with victories against the University of Dayton and Wright State University. She finished nonconference play with a 5-5 record and was 4-1 in singles at one time.


I found this little gem on Kim Kardashian's blog. Now, I know what you are thinking, she can be a little floozy, but this really made her look like an even bigger nitwit than she really is!!!

Forever 21 is expanding their clothing line to include sizes for fuller figured gals, XL-2XL, **insert me jumping up and down and screaming that it is ABOUT time** because, not every woman is a size 0-6, it will be called, Faith 21.

In announcing the line, Forever 21 just so happened to mention that Kim is a fan of Forever 21.

Exhibit A below:

After seeing the article, Kim got her big ole panties all in a bunch and posted this response on her blog...

I feel that this clipping from Us Magazine is a bit misleading, so I wanted to comment on it.

I am a huge fan of Forever 21and I'm very happy they have expanded their line to include a plus-size range, but I am not in that size category and this article makes it sound like I am! I am a curvy girl and I love my curves, but curvy and plus-sized are two very different things. I work really hard to maintain my curves while staying slim and healthy, so to be classed as a "fuller-figured woman" of extra large proportions is a little offensive.

For the record, I am a size 2, not 2XL.

So, I take it this bimbo is saying that if you are, and I quote, "IN THAT SIZE CATEGORY" you are hideously disfigured and you should be exiled to a deserted island to not be seen by anyone who is offended by your full figuredness. (? is that even a word? at this point, I don't care)

Ummm...has she seen her sister Khloe? And, I am not being mean...I am not a small girl by any means. Has she looked in a mirror at that rear of hers?? It is so big you could serve a table of 4 dinner on it comfortably. Trust me...I have hips you could serve tea from, God gave me these nice little shelves to sit my babies on when they were little, I then had to find other uses for them when my babies got to big the lug around.

I just have one thing to say to Kim on my blog..."The idea of someone alluding to the fact you are full figured offending you, offends the hell out of me!"


Whateva....she smells all vinegary!


just because...
