Yum! Yum!

So, the Thanksgiving menu is finally complete and surprise, surprise......... we have decided to go out to eat for our Thanksgiving meal. In a million years I would have never guessed that this would be our choice, but about a week ago I saw an ad for one of my favorite restaurants which described the "wonderful Thanksgiving buffet" that they were having. I had taken my mom to one of their Mother's Day buffets a couple of years ago and it was pretty darn tasty... so without much argument from anyone in my family... we all agreed on the buffet. I will be making some pies however because it just would not be the same without some leftover pumpkin and chocolate cream pie. Hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving!!!!

Can you believe that there are almost 180 pages of sock monkey stuff on ETSY? I want it all!!! Look at this little guy. Is not totally adorable???? Or how about this one? Hee hee! She is cute a creepy kinda monkey way. Madge! Ha!! Don't you wish you were a little kid again so you could carry around this little guy? Look! Sock Monkeys even have pets!!!!! You know you want one!!!!

Seen and Heard...

I am shocked at what I just witnessed at a Walmart here in Houston. Maybe I am the only one who thinks that what I saw was horrible and appalling but I hope not. Waiting in line, I oveheard a grandmother tell her what looked to be about 3?, 4? year old granddaughter that she would look like a "slutty ho" in the pink t-shirt that she wanted her grandmother to buy her. Now, I can honestly say that I could not read what the t-shirt that the little girl was wanting to buy said......for all I know, it may have said "slutty ho" on the shirt.......but being Walmart and all, I kind of doubt it.

What kind of person talks to a small child that way? My grandmother used to freak out whenever I would say "Oh God" around her. I don't think my grandmother ever said a bad word around me when I was a little kid. Even when I was older, the most you may have ever heard her say was "damn", and even that was used sparingly. When I was 4 years old, I did not even know what a "slut" or a "ho" was!!!! We question why kids are growing up the way they are? Is there no such thing as innocence and childhood anymore? I am very sad and disturbed over this and I am not one of those people that is easily offended. Poor child.......

Coral Snake!!!

I don't do snakes. No way, no how. They scare the crap out of me!!!! I have now had my first encounter with a coral snake.... my nutting career may now be over. Damn thing was just slithering across my path and I nearly grabbed it in a handful of leaves (which is actually the second time this has happened to me although the first time it was a mystery snake that I threw across the yard so fast that I was never able to identify it.) I think I need to go lay down now.

On my mind......

5 random things on my mind today...this exact mind is a scary place sometimes.

1. Now there has been a second Florida...all the freaks and weirdos are coming out of the woodwork now. If something like that ever happened where I work, it would probably happen in my office since I am by the front door. On the other hand, if it happened on another floor, I could be the first one to get the hell out.

2. Craving a Baby Ruth bar for 2 days now. What is really weird is that I don't particularly like baby Ruth Bars and I have only had maybe 5 of them in my entire life.

3. I wonder why there were 8 cop cars on I-10 between Mason road and Katy Mills mall yesterday. They were all giving out tickets too....must remember to watch my speed when going through there today.

4. I am not picking up nuts today.... too tired. Have to stop by library and Ulta on the way home. Might stop and get a new pleco from Petsmart to replace the one Melrose murdered. The one that is left seems kind of lonely and needs a friend.

5. Feel kind of "bleh."......cramps.......perhaps this explains the Baby Ruth thing......

You are so kidding me right now?????

Top three things that are driving me crazy right now (and I found myself doing one of them today!!! Arghhh!!!)

1. "Are you kidding me right now?" What is going on with this? It is so over used... kind of like "Gag Me With A Spoon" from the 80's.

2. "At the end of the day" Really pissing me off. This is usually used by somebody that is telling you some, "blah, blah, blah" story that you probably were not interested in hearing in the first place. Bosses and parents use this one a lot.

3. Uptalking - I found myself doing this today. How could I ???????????? In case you don't know what uptalking is.... Definition-Uptalk--A speech pattern in which phrases and sentences habitually end with a rising sound, as if the statement were a question. Very annoying and makes you sound clueless. Don't, I repeat don't do it!!! Please!!! It is one of those things that once you start, you can't stop.

November 2

Apparently this is the date when advertisers feel it is OK to start hitting you up with Christmas commercials. Jeesh!!! I have not even had time to take down the Halloween decorations and there is still plenty of fun size snickers left in the candy stash. I turned on the TV last night right before I went to sleep and blam!!!!...... every commercial break had one or two scenes of holiday joy. Too early for me folks... way too early!!!! I am still stuck on the the Thanksgiving menu. We are having turkey, I can at least tell you that.... but the rest... no idea.
