TODAY IS A GOOD DAY!! Why you ask? Well today was the day I got my parcel from Mel (the queen of all bloggers)!! I was so excited I could hardly cope!! I decided I would make this a group experience and open it with you all, as if you were here, in my kitchen. (As usual on my blog, click to enlarge any photo. I am uploading them small in the hopes that it takes less time for you to get access to my blog.) On my way home I took the utmost care that it was safe. I wanted no harm to come to this box. I could hardly wait till I got home to open it. But I'm weird like that and wanted to let the anticipation build even more.

I got home and Gonzo had a good sniff.

Crofton checked
it out too, but then decided it would be better to squish Gonzo, so off he went.

'S IN THE BOX???????

100 grand bars!! Sweet Cherry Pie! My favorite! We can't get them in Canada. I asked for some and I got LOTS!

A snow globe of Long Beach...very cool! I will keep it by my computer and give it
a good shake now and then!

S!!! I laughed out loud at the one about the idiots. If you can't read it click to enlarge it. I sent Mel a magnet similar to the one on top which is neat.

An Oscar Mayer W
eener Whistle!! For real! I was sooo excited about this! I will now give out "toots" to people when I find something really funny or smart.

Jamwall has his cowbell, I will have my Oscar Mayer Weener Whistle! (Jamwall...forget the drums. THIS is what I will play in our band ok?) Btw, please ignore my gross skin right now. I know. I'm a zit-monster.

Don't go anywhere....there is still MORE! I'm serious! This is the best box I have ever been sent in my life! T-Shirts!

And even one for Crofton!! He liked it! He got down and rolled around with it for a bit before I tried it on him. I guess he wanted to get aquainted with it first! Or maybe he too wanted the anticipation to build too!

Here he is happily wearing it and posing for you.

Jinx got in on the action too!

What is it? what is it?

Awe Jinx...He se
nt me a lock of his hair!

Women used to sen
d locks of their hair to the men they loved. This was probably supposed to be a really sweet gesture on his part, and it was, but it made me laugh hard!
I immediately brought it over to Gonzo so he could sniff it and get aquainted with Jinx. First he sniffed it.

Then he burst out into fits of laughter.

He thinks Jinx has quite the sence of humor. He's still giggling. All I have to do is point to the card of hair and he starts grinning.

Mel, just saying thank you seems inadequate. That was the most awesome box full of surprises and fun. You will be the first person I send out an official TOOT to. So here you go mel, this toots for you. From the bottom of my heart, I TOOT you!

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!


There is a golf course near my house that has some pretty weird rules. Not the least of which is that you have to bring an extra pair of pants. Just incase you get a hole in one.

In other news, I wanted people to know that since I took the word verification off of my comments, I have yet to receive any spam. The first time I did it, I got spammed 3 times. So I put it back on. After
being sick and tired of having to do the word thingy even on my own blog, I eventually took it off again, wondering how bad can it really get? Well, I haven't had a problem yet. If I do get some random spam comment, I will just delete it. Simple. I am begging you, my fellow bloggers to please consider doing this too. Come on, admit it, you love not having to do it on my blog don't you? And guess what? Admitting it to me is soooo easy and uncomplicated! You don't have to scratch your head wondering if it's an M or an R and an N really close together. Is that an I or a J? Only to figure out a split second after you escaped out of the comments that you were wrong. Now it's too late and you already exited out and have to try and remember your whitty comment for a second time and then, oh ya, that's right, another pop quiz to stress over once you finally do. Sometimes they are like 12 letters long, I swear. And that only ever seems to happen when you are typing a small comment that isn't really worth the you may be like me and choose to abort the whole "operation comment" idea and just go to the next blog. Your presence undetected... your comment unappreciated...your will to live deflated ever so slightly.

Ok, so you get my point. Don't be scared. Everybody's doing it. They just say it will hurt you. Come on Baby, you know I love you.

MMMMmmm yummy!

White chocolate covered oreos. YUM YUM!! This so so gross, but we bought waaaay too many of them and I'm still not sick of them. I just keep eating them. My goal of hitting 200 pounds this pregnancy is not seeming like such a joke anymore. Gonzo wanted no part of them. He doesn't know what he's missing.

Rudolf with your nose so bright, won't you slay Richard Simmonds tonight?

OK, you all remember Richard Simmonds being kidnapped and locked up in this house by Rob's work right? (If not, click here...)Well, I drove by it the other day to see if Dick was still there, or if someone had freed him, and what do I see? He's not only still there, he has a friend. Now we can laugh and call them both names. How convienent that they are both in the same spot. Who wants to come with me and play gay reindeer games right in front of them and not let them join in?
These are some other pictures of that house. Aparently it's a replica of Anne Hathaway's cottage and is open during the summer. I promise you I will go take a tour and take lots of pictures and even try and free Richard if it's true and you can go in. It's kinda cool. Except for the creepy porcelain dolls. They scare me. I remember seeing a horror movie about porcelain dolls when I was a kid with my sister and we were so freaked out of them from then on. She used to collect them and then the next day she was scared of them and we weren't allowed to say anything nasty about them infront of them or about them in her room. She was too afraid to even keep them in the closet incase they got mad. Once in awhile I'd go into her room when she was there and look directly at them and say "She hates you. Especially you, ya that's right, you, with the teeth. She really hates you." Then she'd start crying and kick me out. lol!!

More weird stuff by Rob's work

New post on Panhandlers Gone Wild from Mel.

I'm beginning to think that there is something very unnatural in the water by Rob's work. That is the only thing that can explain the weird stuff I see there. Rob told me about these two things near his work a bit ago, but yesterday I had the opportunity to scope them out.

First, he told me about a car that someone had completely covered in duct tape. He said it looked really cool at first, but then it started peeling and began to look like crap. So I guess he tore it all off. Here is what a car looks like after it's been covered in duct tape all summer and then peeled off....just incase you've always wondered.
Secondly, he told me about this planter someone has on a post in front of their house. Three guesses what it really is. Judging by how dead the plant looks, I'm scared to think what they used for fertilizer.

I know I shouldn't have been , but I was scared to death of this lady bug. What kind of lady bug is yellow and black? It's wings were all sticking out just ready to attack I was sure. I swear it said to me as I chose to free it using Ian McKenzie's political propaganda (I was too scared to kill it) "Easy does it Lady...One false move and I go straight for your jugular." Where is Flaming Bob when you need him?

I live in a van down by the river.

As usual with my blog, Click to enlarge any photo if you wish...
If I had voted, it WOULDN'T have been for this guy.

Or His fake family. I swear he just photoshopped himself in. Actually, I bet that's his real wife and he photoshopped those girls in. They are probably just two girls from the Sears catalog.

I bet he drives this van. I wonder where the owner found blue duct tape.

dreaming of donuts...ahhh, sweet sweet donuts.

I posted a couple new photos on Panhandlers Gone Wild this morning. Check them out. And check out the beach front property that Mel spotted 2 posts ago too! It's classic!

So I'll go for long periods of time without remembering one dream. But not lately. Lately my dreams have been crazy. The other thing is, I never ever dream about celebrities. That is, until recently. Lately I've dreamed about Paris Hilton (she was trying desperately to be my friend and I was using her for make up tips LOL!), Brad Pitt (he was just a friend of mine and called me on the phone to talk at 3AM and I got irritated and hung up!! haha), and in another one I was hiking with Johnny Depp and his wife and was deathly afraid of the woods, for some reason, that they were insisting we trek through... Anyway, as strange as that has been for me, the really weird dreams I've been having end up always being about me being either back in highschool, or the age I am now and still in highschool. And hanging out with people from my life now in my highschool. It's really starting to freak me out. Then last night it hits me. I think I have the explanation. Not for the celebrity thing, that's still boggling, but the highschool thing. Since I started blogging, at least a couple times a week I pick up my dictionary to look up a word or two because for some reason my spell check doesn't work on my blog. Anyway, the only dictionary I have is my dictionary from highschool. I remember spending a whole English period jotting down the side of it where each letter was. Then I also started thinking I wonder if they still spell things the same way as they did back in this 1989 edition of the Merriam-Webster. I find it ironic that it says NEW on the cover... But not only do they spell things the same, I must be missing out on all kinds of new words.I also keep dreaming about donuts. Desperately wanting to eat them...normally the ones at my highschool cafeteria...but for one reason or another, always being denied. The really strange part is I keep craving this huge pink donut with pink icing. In my dreams they look soooo good. And I never get one. they are always spoken for or the person just keeps saying NO! What's up with that? A couple weeks ago I ate 3 donuts in a row just to see if that would kill the cravings in my dream, but nope. I still want them in their big plump pink splendor.

fun weekend

Friday night we got a babysitter and we went out for a wonderful dinner and then we went bowling. Which I suck at ROYALLY. But it was fun.

We had a great weekend. We did lots. We went for a big walk down by the water. Went swimming. Had a few trips to Starbucks. I love going out for coffee (well, steamed milk right now) and a goodie. It's one of my favorite things to do. Went to the Santa Parade, although we left a few minutes before it was over because Crofton was cold and tired. It was freeeeeezing!!But it was fun.

Went to church on Sunday. Out for lunch after. Then Rob put up the Christmas lights and I put up our tree. It was a good weekend. It went by really fast.

Those black eyed peas tasted alright to me....

Wow people...GREAT suggestions! Thank you!Keep them coming!

So, my friend Guy is a birder. He gets to go all over the place watching and banding and recording birds. One of the coolest jobs in the world, I think. Anyway, awhile ago he came across these two freaky situations in the woods. We can't figure out the bugs-doll thing at all. We were looking for imput on why...and who....and what on Earth?????

He calls this one "The Bugs Witch Project"

Suggestion Box....

Ok people. I want to rename my blog. Only my friend Tanya gets what it means and it's only funny to us. So I am taking suggestions....

I also need suggestions for baby names. If we are having a girl, we are hooped. We have no girl names picked out at all. Please help!

Look at this belly that has popped out of nowhere! Crazy hey? They baby moves all the time now. It's a neat feeling.

Pretty soon this growing baby inside my belly will be this big before I know it. It feels like yesterday he was 10 lbs. He's almost 1 already. I just can't believe it. He turns 1 on Dec 7th.

This seemed funny to me. Rob went into a store while I waited in the car. After staring at the door he went in for 5 minutes, waiting for him to come back out, I glace at the vehicle next to me and noticed this dog...who is doing the same thing! LOL!
