I Got Nothin'

If there was some way to remove my eyeballs from their sockets, rinse them under water to remove the dastardly pollen that is making them utterly unbearable, then replace them -- all without harm, I would totally do it.

Abby's been babysitting by herself for a few months now, but I still can't leave the kids home alone with her in charge.

I love green pepper steak, fajitas and even stuffed bell peppers, but please do not insult me by putting green bell pepper on my pizza. It is disgusting.

I did not watch the royal wedding. I have seen two pictures from it. It interests me not. Kate is gorgeous and anyone who has a sister named Pippa is absolutely rocktacular, but yeah.....they got married. I'm more excited about my sister Bettie's wedding and my friend Melinda's daughter's wedding in the next few weeks.

My girls are gone for the day so I have shut myself up in the bedroom by myself with the iPod, laptop, a big glass of water, eyedrops for my itchy eyes and about 14 pillows -- all of this in an attempt to distract myself from the noise of my husband and son playing Call of Duty: Black Ops. So. Much. Gunfire.

Sally Kern is embarrassing.

Every time I go see my town's little theater productions I miss the stage so badly it hurts. Yet I can't quite get to where I can audition. I guess when they do "Hairspray" I'll audition for Edna Turnblad. Or maybe Ursula the sea witch if they do Disney's Little Mermaid. There are just so few acting opportunites for fat bottom girls. 

My daughter called me "Emo Mom" yesterday. I liked that.

We planted tomato plants the other day. I held the plants in my lap on the way home, so I'm pretty sure they'll die. I can't grow anything but kids. And mildew in my shower.

I am completely and 100% addicted to Words With Friends. Seriously.
Start a game with me: RedneckDiva.

We have a new TV. A big TV. I still can't get over the fact that now every show looks like a soap opera. Does that make sense? Soap operas always look like stage plays, not like movie sets or other TV show sets. Soaps always look different. But now SUV looks like All My Children and it's weirding me out.

If there is something you'd like me to write/blog about please leave a comment. My dearest Library Lady has requested a post about Disney World and everything involved with planning a trip there and one of these days I'll get around to it. Of course, vacation season will be over by the time I get to it, but I will regardless.

I have no idea why the writer's block continues to plague me. I'm frustrated. I sat down one day and blasted out two stories for my column at WelchOK and two weeks ago I wrote the last one I posted here.....and that's it. I am pathetically uninspired. Maybe if you give me topics it will help. Maybe.

The only good things about this time of year are flip flops and storms.

The heat, the bugs, the humidity, the pollen, the spiders, the ticks....they all suck.

Words With Friends, "RedneckDiva", find me, play me. It's pretty much guaranteed you will beat me, so what are you waiting for?

I feel exactly the same way whenever I go over to Li'l Brother's house and watch something on his HDTV -- I remember the first time I saw a show in HD I had to ask "Is this an episode of Dexter or some telenovela?"

Also, I would gladly play Word With Friends with you if I had an iPhone/iPad/etc.

Regarding your second to last point...FOR SERIOUS. All the bugs start invading my place. I guess they think it's their little getaway.

How miserable it is to suffer from Hayfever! Somehow I always forget how bad it is until it arrives, and then I remember why I don't like summer!

We....the people
