Jesus, Pass the Poonchkie

Happy Fat Tuesday, I guess. Looks rather boring in New Orleans.


Naturally, I had to check out Earthcam. Looks like a lot of semi sober people. Not a booby in the crowd. Perhaps, too early. So, another religious day shot to hell and morphed into fun times. I suppose it's better than a poke in the eye from Sister Mardi of the nuns of Nongratis, who told our six year old selves we would be burning in hell very soon. I'm not sure what I did to deserve such a grim ending,but what the hell, I've learned, going to polar extremes gets ya in big trouble, as does laughing at Sister Mardi.

As for those paczkis,


pronounced, Poonchkies, I think, I have not had one. Not a nibble. I've given up my chocolate, my sweets. What more do you want from me!?



Yeah, once you've been hardwired to some religious bull, it's hard to get rid of. Anyway, stay safe. I'm sure many of you will be invoking God's name, in vain, tomorrow.

Ladies Night

I had no clue the big event, no not Trump's speech, the really big event, happened last night- The Oscar's. I heard about it this morning. Sounded like one awkward night. Let's talk about the ladies...


What the frickety frack!? Fashion "experts" liked this. I say, What the frickety frack!?


Um, yeah. I sorta, kinda like the dress, but the hair. Lose, lose, lose. I don't think we'll be seeing much more of this young lady on any screen in the future.


And this style has got to go, the one shoulder peek. Pretty boring look, says, I.


Wowie, zowie, Cannot go wrong in Versace.



Gorgeous. The runner up on my short list.

And the winner....



She just emanated glamour. Winner all the way.


So, I spent about ten- fifteen minutes in La-La land. More than enough time, especially since I did not see one movie on the list.

My Sunday Sermon


I'm all for people being who they gotta be. To me it is what makes the world more interesting, and a whole lot happier.

However... if you were born a boy, then want to beat up the girls, you are going to win, most of the time. You are physically stronger. It's just a fact, no matter how you want to alternate yourself and the facts.

There are some things that cannot be changed. So, how to solve this dilemma? Hell if I know. I just feel the wrestling on the playing mat is unfairly represented.

I Was Coffee Mugged


I'm gonna spill my beans, here. Crazy, I tell ya, I'm crazy. I saw an article about the new Starbuck's water bottle with the name of Lily Pulitzer on it going for double the price on Ebay- somewhere around $80 to $100, plus. I'm a little late to the Ebay party. I recently joined and have bought some nice things, although, I was never interested in Starbucks paraphernalia. Well, bust my buttons, many people are bidding on anything that holds coffee. Who knew? I don't know who Lily is, but I took a look see. I think she's dead, yet her name still sells (obviously) The problem with going on watching a happening is, one gets caught up in the maelstrom. I didn't bid on a Lily bottle, but got in on some side action and bought a used, USED, ceramic mug. I actually bought two things. I'm ashamed. I will walk the walk of group mind shame. I don't even go to Starbucks. I like their coffee, but whoopee doo, I like Folger's instant, too.

So, shame on me. Maybe it's the caffeine coursing through my bloodstream.

The one I bought- new


High bids going for this
The black cup above is a big seller. People actually watch the bidding like it was some sort of horse race. The mugs with mermaids on them are hot items, as well as mugs, cups, from other Countries.

Ima Coming, George!


Wowie, zowie. It's not so bad being an Oscar loser. Your loser bag of goodies should help you get through. From a six day holiday in Hawaii, three days spying on George Clooney on Lake Como, and a ten year supply of make-up is just part of the package. You do have to pay taxes on booby prize, but still.... not bad, eh?

Only those nominated receive bags. Don't worry, those Oscar winners tend to disappear.

Speaking of losers.... what is going on with Harrison Ford? He nearly near missed a passenger plane by feet. What the hell? Time to take away his license?

Aaw, David is suffering from dementia. The Partridge Family was truly goofy and barely watchable, yet, he's from my era. It's sad to hear.

It's Not Sporting



The image of Everton Luiz breaking down after an endless barrage of racist taunts from soccer fans breaks my heart. What is wrong with people? I will never understand how people can hate that much simply because of the color of one's skin. And to make it a mass participation is mind blowing.

Those who can, should stop this. Yes, it can be easily done. But, we all know why that won't happen unless there is enough outrage.

Are you outraged?

Mama Bear


I have not really paid much attention to the Jolie-Pitt break-up and allegations of abuse. It's just so icky. But, in life and the media, there are some things that you just can't ignore. I have no idea what went on, who is right, who is wrong. It made me think about relationships. Clearly, Angelina Jolie chose her children over spouse. It isn't always this way. For instance, no one came between the Reagans. The spouse came first in their relationship. It's sad to think there must be choices at all, but life happens. Of course, if there is abuse going on, the children should always come first, truth should be the priority. Yet.... it isn't always the big things that break a family. Sometimes, perhaps it's a choice between a school play or an important occasion with spouse. I think at some point, people have chosen a side. And someone or some ones, lose.

As for Angelina, she is having a great time with her children, as this video will attest. And, for any person interested in Jolie, I think it is obvious who will always come first for her.

A Mystery


How does one simply vanish without a trace? I found this very interesting article regarding the disappearance of Brian Shaffer. He had gone out with friends to a bar and during that time, Brian vanished. According to the article, here, Columbus, Ohio has cameras everywhere, yet, when video was viewed after friends reported Brian missing, not a trace was found. A camera shows Brian entering the bar, but not one image of Brian leaving.

It definitely is an interesting case. What do I think? Brian's mother had died recently from a rare form of cancer. I think Brian was devastated. I am guessing he left the bar undetected (obviously) and committed suicide.

It would be nice to think he is alive. His girlfriend called his phone number six months after Brian's disappearance and heard something, some sort of connection. The phone call was traced miles from the bar.

So, That's where I would start looking, although, Brian disappeared over ten years ago. Hopefully, this mystery will be solved.

Bloody "ell


How many soon to be four year olds want a cukoo clock for their birthday? Only one that I know of, and she won't be getting one from me. I have looked and looked. I simply want a bird to come out and cheep. Do you know how much cukoo clocks go for!? Thousands! What the hell! It can't be that hard. I don't need all that elaborate creepy shit on it. The cheapest I found was a plastic one going for $65. Pfffttt. Not going to happen.


Speaking of cukoos.... Why is everyone going carazzzzzyyy over Trump's hatred for the media? We knew that. Big deal. What's he going to do? Cannot stop free speech, dude.


You f-ing loon.

So, back to my dilemma. What do I get a four year old who hates everything I get her? I'll tell ya. A Peppa Pig collection of happy birthday friends.


She watches Peppa Pig so much online she has developed a fabulous English accent.

Toodles.

Really. Think Outside the Box


It's true. Life is stranger than fiction, sometimes. A local news story.. A guy just robbed a Walgreen's story of some of their recycled bins that were stored in the back of the store. He decided putting them over his head was a good way to transport said items, or else, he thought no one would notice a man walking in the middle of the night with a funky hat on.

Apparently, a young woman did not notice and ran robber over. Unfortunately, Karma and the Grim Reaper called his name and he succumbed to injuries.

More to the story. The young woman had no license, was allegedly drunk, and speeding.

I think this is one of those things they call, freaky.

What can we learn here, kids? Don't go stealing Walgreen bins. Don't walk in the street with bins on your head.

Look both ways. Take a taxi.

Oh, so many rules.

Dis Americish Lie


I really don't know what is going on here, but it seems like a lot of stuff happening. Some child, a thirteen year old girl, is having her fifteen minutes of fame. I guess she was another victim of Dr. Phil, the doc who just wants to help. Um, yeah. Apparently, she's a bit much to handle says mom. Okay, so she's on the show. She gets upset by something said, then out comes this gobbled goop, and now she is (in)famously a fifteen minute comet. Yeah, kids. Been there, done that. Except... the language, oh, not English. This is what get on my nerves. The utter ruination of our language. Having been raised by the nuns of Juda's priest, this abomination of what was once a gorgeous way to communicate has permeated my ears and again, my nerves. I concede, I am not so good at the English, but I try. We all have our time to be stupid, or try to be cool. I do believe I used the words. "far out," back in the day. As far as I know, they are real words. "Cass me ousside," are not words, although we get the meaning.

Who is watching this 13 year old girl!? Drive her to school. Stand there and make sure she sits there. Drive her home, read to her, listen to her (It's going to hurt) hug her, hold her, be the adult, and don't let this child's life be a joke.

By Your B Wear


Oh my gosh, this article from Daily Mail is hilarious and I think we all can relate if we order stuff online. I can relate to young lady who bought cute swimsuit only to find it fit her cat. I also bought a cute tank top with the correct American size. Well, it would fit my four year old granddaughter who is correctly proportioned for a four year old. I haven't really had too many bad experiences, so far. I bought my Auntie some flowers (I won't say from whom. Not Amazon) and heard she liked them but when I saw a picture of what she received I was a might ticked. Not at all what I bought.

Anyway, click, here, for link to funny article which shows what people bought.

Swinging With Gilligan


When my body is tired but my brain is still racing, I think of stuff- weird stuff, like the unreality of living on an Island and looking good after three years of jungle rot. I have probably seen every episode of Gilligan's Island, several times over. They make being stranded on an Island so romantic and fun. Banana pies, coconut smoothies, awesome beds to swing in- literally.
Add caption Mary Ann scraping off mold

By this time, my body is none too happy with brain fantasizing (I think of my brain looking like the Starship Enterprise)

 about lovely swims and more banana pie. Some body entity breaks onboard the helm and starts shouting, "Lies, all lies! After three years your clothes would have rotted off from the mold. You would have most likely suffered from the following diseases - malaria, cholera, dysentery, ringworm, gangrene, rabies, and so on! You bloody rotter, shut the hell up and get some sleep. We don't care if Ginger had a massive wardrobe and the Professor could make anything from nothing yet could not fix the damn boat! So what if everyone remained celibate and pure of heart. So what if it makes no sense for a millionaire, and his wife, to take a cruise on some dinky boat when they can be on their own yacht. (LOL, this was the 60's after all when yachts cost $5,000) Shut down the power, Scotty and go to sleep!"

She Has the Last Word


Plaintiff: "Your Honor, let me start by saying, you are beautiful. I love women. I love 'em."

Judge: "Quiet, moron!" I'm the smart one, here. Use your listening ears and close your mouth. What are you doing?"

Plaintiff: "Tweeting. I realize you are an old crone and live in the stone age, but I love you."

Judge: "Do you know how I know you are lying? Your mouth is moving! Look, moron, you can't go making changes willy nilly. The Supreme, that's me, has ruled, you are a MORON. Tweet that!"

Plaintiff: "Buy Ivanka's purses, darling. Did I mention, you're beautiful. And I will slay you with my tweets."

Judge: "Be quiet, idiot! Case dismissed."

I Felt So Bad For New Yawkas, I Had to Buy Something

I found a new to me artist - Iris Scott. She paints amazing images with her fingers.

I bought this one.



If I become rich, I'll buy these...





Speaking of art, look at the snowstorm hitting the East Coast. I'm actually jealous. We have nothing here but ugly dirt.

Look, I'm like Iris!

A Van Gogh Chip For Sale!


Someone tell me this is a joke. A cheeto for $99,000!? Who would buy a cheeto for $99,000!? Apparently, someone.

And I get Tom Brady's jersey is worth some bucks, but $500,000 worth of bucks!? Who would want that smelly thing, except for whoever the Falcon quarterback is and plans some hoodoo voodoo.

Okay, each to his own liking. I would pay up the nose for a Van Gogh. My family would think I was nutso. It's weird. that money thing. I quibble over spending $30 on book of stamps, yet have no problem spending the same amount on pizza.

Money, it's weird.

And so are the people who use it.

This May Be My KellyAnne Palin Moment


So, these people were protesting because they didn't want their water poisoned, yet they leave mounds and mounds of trash?

The Free Beacon is a conservative paper and I'm trying to get a balanced account on whether they are actually looking for bodies.

And yet... if these protestors were really concerned about the environment, why, tell me why, did they leave their garbage? Makes me sick.

If it's true. I'll get back to ya.


How Would You Like Yer Dog, Dawg?

LOL. Hilarious. This old geezer wants women to stay home on Sunday and make their husband's breakfast in bed. I doubt even wives in the 50's did this sort of thing. I'm betting his wife doesn't do this either.

*******************

I had no access to outside life during the weekend. Sounds like I missed a great Super Bowl. Also, sounds like I missed getting hit by a meteor, by that much.



******************

So, this is a puzzler. People are talking. What kind of dog should the WH family have? I'm thinking these are the dogs in you know whose, life.

"NFL 2017" — A Bad Lip Reading of the NFL




OMG, I laughed so hard. This is a terrific website. Aaron Rodgers interview about his worst date is priceless. Go, here for more. Watch Yoda sing.

A Rum Doodely Day


Yes, yes, I realize the closest I will ever get to Everest is shaking Himalayan salt on my spud, but it's still on my bucket list. So, I live vicariously through adventurers who have been to the top of the world. I know they are stupid, selfish narcissists, but, they are my kind of idiots. I've been reading, Matt Dickinson's true tale of his climb during one of the worst seasons ever on the mountain. Dickinson was on the North face of the mountain when tragedy hit the South side. It's a terrific read even if you don't like climbing things. I also get lots of reading ideas from the writers who mention other heroes, so when Dickinson mentioned he read, 'The Ascent of Rum Doodle,' crikey, I had to get the book. What a title! What a cover! Okay, I have not read it yet, It's on order. (Yes, from Amazon!) It's actually a satire of those who must climb Chomolunga. Golly, I can't wait to read it.

*************************

Well, I've finally looked at the video of the Australian news anchor going meow over the fact that a co=worker is wearing white. Gah, what a bitch. Apparently, the person who filmed it was fired, which leads me to think this happens quite often. I sometimes watch a local morning show called, 'Real Milwaukee,' and for some reason I feel the tension coming through the screen. I don't think they like each other. I see one of the original members is gone, replaced with Angelica ... who looks so uncomfortable most of the time. Just guessing but I'm going to stay tuned, in case a cat fight breaks out there as well. It's obvious they are told (or decide) to match outfits. Jeez, so goofy.



**********************

Are you going to watch the football game, Sunday? I've been seeing previews of some of the commercials. Wow, they really look strange. $5 million for an ad. I'm not sure I'm going to watch, although I think Lady Gaga may have a surprise or, three.

HGD, HGD, HGD


Happy Groundhog Day! Hope those fools in funny hats keep their faces away from the hog. It's been a lousy weather type winter, meaning, little snow, too warm, blah, blah, blah...

Cult Following on Aisle Twelve!

I like to go to Mojo to see how the movies ranked over the weekend. 'A Dog's Purpose,' came in second, although, it didn't make a great deal of money. I think it probably did better than it normally would have because of controversy, although I am in the minority with my opinion. Movie experts say the controversy hurt the film.

Anyway, I was perusing the list when I came upon this movie. Wow! It made $967 over the weekend.  Hmmm, looks kind of fun. A guy's first day on the job and stuff happens.


I feel bad when some movies just don't do well. Some deserve to die, and some move to DVD land. where they find a cult of followers. 'Stand By Me,' 'It's a Wonderful Life,' 'A Christmas Story,' 'Breaking Away,' and so on... have fortunately found a spot in our filmy hearts. Speaking of 'Breaking Away'... who is that dreamy dude... could it be Dennis Quaid?


 Well, you never know, the dog movie could have another life. I'll place my bet with 'Massacre.'


It's Like a Tweet, Without the Twitter.

Am I the only one who has not seen, The Game of Thrones?
