What were them good old boys were drinkin?

Ok so the girls & I were playing their new Band Hero game yesterday on the Wii and one of the songs is "American Pie". I had the mic, so I'm singing...

"Drove my chevy to the levee, but the levee was dry. Them good old boys were drinkin...."

WTF? They left out WHISKEY!!!! You can't sing it "them good old boys were drinkin and rye..." it doesn't make sense! I sang the word, which probably gave me lower points. They are just being politically correct. If there was a copyright problem, the song wouldn't be there.... not in a well known game like that. The artist is listed in the title with the original song playing in the background (with words... just "blanking out" the word whiskey.).

Grrrr. Stupid. The world is going to shit.

Kimber's wacked more than normal today

This week we will answer some crazy questions brought to you by
Kimber, the color of yellow snow and the number of moles on your body.

1. Isn't showing a condom commercial during Sex Rehab With Dr Drew almost like showing a pain narcotic or an alcohol commercial during Intervention?
um... I guess? Is this even a question? I mean, it is a question... but it's like a question that doesn't want an answer.

2. Burger King and Ronald McDonald met Colonel Sanders in a dark alley. They beat him down for just serving chicken and not sharing his "11 herbs & spices". The Colonel goes down. Begs for his life. Where do they go to eat afterwards?
They go to Arby's and buy me a roast beef sandwhich and leave it at my door... because that BK guy scares me and I don't want to see him

3. You take a shower, go to leave the bathroom and the door is stuck. Due to humidity and moisture it won't budge. It will not open. No one else is home. You can't go out the window. How long do you sit in the bathroom and how do you occupy your time?
I stay in until I get out? And I think I would occupy my time by figuring out something to use to undo the hinges on the door.

4. You are a rockstar, but you need a cool rocker name. What is it and how did you decide on that name?
Bobsie Nicole Smith... and I just made it up.

5. Have you ever gotten naked at a family function?
I bet I did when I was an infant, but since then - nope.

6. If purple ate yellow, what color would come out?
I wanna say green, but I bet thats not right. Probably brown because no matter what color our food is it all seems to come out brown.

7. The closest paper and pen to you right now. What color are they?
white paper & a blue pen

8. Corn chips or potato chips?
why? Are you buying?

9. You are forced to swallow either a diamond or a piece of coal. Don't ask. Just do it. Which do you choose?
A diamond. It's worth more than the coal the next day...

10. If your mouse decided to attack your keyboard, who would win?
my keyboard because I have one of those mini-mouses.

Christmas memories

I broke down today and pulled the tree out. I have the lights on, the ribbons, the "necklace garland" (can't use real garland because of the cats - they like to eat it) and the angel. The rest I will leave for the girls.

There are a couple ornaments on it already though. I put all the stuffed animal ornaments in a bag last year I guess and threw them in the box with the ribbons & garland. As I opened the bag I smiled and got a little teary eyed as I pulled out Ernie, Mr Snuffalupagus, Elmo & Flounder (Bert must have gotten put in with the rest of the ornaments, so he's MIA at the moment) and set them at the top of the tree. See, these few ornaments have been on our tree every year for 15 years.... since our 1st Christmas. Demon #1 was only 3 months old and we were the brokest parents in the world. There was no way we could afford a tree AND all the trimmings so we just bought the tree - the most pathetic 5 foot tree that you could buy for $20. We set it up and I went into Demon #1's room and raided her stuffed animals. I strung Kix on a string for garland. It was pretty sad, but it was my favorite tree we've ever had. That year there were no presents under the tree either... none except for the $5 ragdoll that Jason went out and got for the baby demon because I insisted she had to get something. The next year we were a little better off so we did buy some ornaments, but those couple have stayed to remind us how far we've come since that 1st Christmas together.

Yeah, I know. I've REALLY sucked at blogging lately. I've mentioned that before, too. I have an excuse - I've been working. It's that season you know, shopping. So bare with me while I shamlessly plug my shops here, because, well... a girl has got to make some money. Head on over to, it's the starting point. Trust me when I tell you that you will find SOMETHING for SOMEONE on your list. There's lots of new stuff, which is why I haven't been blogging much. I've been busy -- I told you that!

Ok anyway, onto what most of you came to read today....

This week we will answer some crazy questions brought to you by Berleen, the color snow white and the number 8 (days until my birthday).
1. Sometimes when you are sitting around doing nothing, a thought randomly pops into your head. How many measuring cups do you own?
I personally own too damn many. But I did recently purchase a set from Pampered Chef that rocks my world. All my other measuring cups could perish in a fire and I wouldn't care. There's even a tiny one that you can use as a mesauring spoon!

2. What is your favorite ice cream topping?
chocolate & peanut butter, of course!

3. Egg nog - is it digestible?
I wouldn't know. Can't get past the smell of the stuff.

4. Were you one of the insane humans who went to a store last Friday?
Nope. I remembered that I hate shopping that day and stayed home!

5. There are 12 months in a year, anywhere from 28 - 31 days in a month, depending on the year, of course. Each day holds a special meaning for someone, some days hold a special meaning for everybody. Do you have a 2010 calendar yet?
Nope. Second nope of this blog post. Fun. I'm hoping for a Twilight calendar for Christmas, though. Hint hint.

6. Kids are funny sometimes and say the darndest things, but it's ok because they are kids and they are so adorable. A two year old is cute when they say a swear word. Admit it, they are. What was your favorite nursery rhyme growing up? Hey - if you don't have a favorite, just work with me here and pick the first one that fell off the wall and broke like an egg or came out of the sky like a cow who just jumped over the moon.
Three little kittens they lost their mittens, and they began to cry,
"Oh mother dear, we sadly fear that we have lost our mittens."
"What! Lost your mittens, you naughty kittens!
Then you shall have no pie."
"Meeow, meeow, meeow, now we shall have no pie."
The three little kittens they found their mittens,
And they began to cry,
"Oh mother dear, see here, see here
For we have found our mittens."
"Put on your mittens, you silly kittens
And you shall have some pie"
"Meeow, meeow, meeow,
Now let us have some pie."
The three little kittens put on their mittens
And soon ate up the pie,
"Oh mother dear, we greatly fear
That we have soiled our mittens."
"What! soiled you mittens, you naughty kittens!"
Then they began to cry, "Meeow, meeow, meeow"
Then they began to sigh.
The three little kittens they washed their mittens
And hung them out to dry,
"Oh mother dear, do you not hear
That we have washed our mittens."
"What! washed your mittens, you are good kittens."
But I smell a rat close by,
"Meeow, meeow, meeow" we smell a rat close by...

7. Most of us have some type of machine that people like to call 'vehicles'. Some are blue, some are yellow, some are red. Some have trunks, some have beds and some even can't decide if they are a car or a truck. We put gas in them, check the oil and drive them all over the place and stop them in places called parking spots. Picture in your mind the machine you currently own and if you own more than one, picture the one you last drove - when was the last time you had a new tire on it?
Um..... yeah, like I remember that.

8. For those of us on Facebook, do you wish to share your Facebook identity with us?
Does this link work?

9. Santa's coming! Where's the best place to hide presents? Any clever little tricks for keeping those nosey people from ruining the surprise?
I hide them in the basement. We have a hole in the ground type basement... concrete floor, rock walls with some dirt mixed in. Furnace, water heater and Christmas decos are all thats down there. The kids are afraid of the basement so they never travel down those stairs.

10. Have you heard that the world is going to end in 2012? Some people think that the world isn't actually going to go BOOM! and be no more, they think that the "end of the world" is actually going to be a worldwide takeover by a certain country and/or religion, which all has to do with the current president of the USA. Do you agree?
I am one of those people who is afraid of the end of the world. I won't even watch movies about it - I get nightmares. When my husband told me this idea people have about Muslims taking over, I told him to shut up. It was too late - I'm obsessed about it now.

11. Butterly, butterfly fluttering through the air, please don't land on my freshly washed hair. What brand of shampoo did you use this morning? (and for those of you who still stink.. think of yesterday morning... and if that still doesn't apply to you - go get your stinky butt in the shower!)
Aussie. It rocks my world. Although I bought Suave conditioner yesterday because it was on sale and decided to use it because it was the coconut stuff and I love that smell. Shouldn't have done it. My hair feels like straw now.
