Little known fact about Raphael, the Teenage Mutant Turtle. Sometimes, he cruises around town in the Malibu Barbie convertible. Cause, ya know. A real man -er, turtle- isn't afraid of pink.
I wonder if Ken knows about this? I'm guessing, no.
(This post must be linked to this one, for the sake of a reoccuring theme in my household. Oh, those wild and crazy turtles in a half-shell!)

This is hilarious, and really captures how I feel about politics right now. (HT to King Pen for this link)

Adding anything else to this would just be unnecessary, as it is completely hilarious on it's own. (Thanks to King Pen, once again, for providing funny in my life.)

So I'll just post the pics.
Thanks to King Pen, I've now officially begun my collection of Santos. He spotted a bubble gum machine filled to the brim with Saints, half a buck each. Not the football team. Oh, no, this is much, much better. These are the actual, canonized saints of the church. In itty bitty collectible format.
And who can walk away from that, folks? Seriously? So, my sweet man dug two quarters out of his pocket, and brought me home some blog material. Boy, does he know the way to my heart! I've got my fingers crossed that he'll finish out the collection on Valentine's Day.
I started out big-- I got Mary. I know- you're jealous. Try not to be- that's a sin.
I'll try to recreate the moment for you. First, in the bubble. I wasn't sure what she was at first. The cloudy plastic is a veritable veil of mystery!
And here, liberated from her bubble prison! Oh the vision!
Up close, floating in a sea of white. And I just love a good pair of strong, stout hands on a woman!
It was a beautiful moment.
Next time, I'm hoping for the Virgin De Guadalupe. I hear they only made a limited number of those, though, so I'll try not to get my hopes up too high.
You can consider the above image my official Christmas list.
(That is, if I haven't jumped from the Nice List to the Naughty List with this post. I'll admit, it's borderline. But still. Hey, look! A bird! Over there!)

Yesterday, while watching HeroBoy play Webkinz on the computer, I noticed that his pet, Fang, (the striped snake, FYI) had made a huge mess in his room. Toys, books, scooters, you name it. The place was a wreck.
And I actually heard myself say, about an internet pretend place THAT DOESN'T EVEN EXIST IN THIS DIMENSION, "Whoa, HeroBoy, you have GOT to clean that up, seriously!" And when he laughed and didn't do it, I had to PHYSICALLY stop from doing it myself.
That's just what I need. Now I've got to pick up after my son's internet pet. 'Cause I've got all this free time on my hands, of course.
Also, funny to me-
Today, I was looking for a recipe in the cookbook, and for the life of me couldn't find the hamburger meat section. I looked and looked, and finally in exasperation, unintentionally demanded aloud, "Where's the BEEF??"
I was entirely too amused by that.
Then, very sad. Because, let's face it, this probably qualifies me as "old" and "confusing" to the young peoples.
Okay, I'm off to bed. We're loading up tomorrow for a few days at Lake Bruin (in Louisiana, y'all) and there is much to do and sleep is needed. I'll post lots of pictures Monday of HeroBoy waterskiing, I'm sure, and of Czarina riding very ladylike (and not at all terrified, no ma'am) in the innertube.
Hope everybody has a good weekend!

Oh, busy life. Busy, busy, busy. Life, life, life.
I've been trying to knock some things off my Summer To Do list before SCHOOL STARTS! Yikes! What in the WORLD happened to the summer?
So, I've been the missing blogger. My poor, neglected blog is a casualty of my now much more organized and productive life. Guess something's gotta give, huh? I'll be more talky as I mark more things off my list, so don't bail on me. Although, to be honest, I think everybody else is so busy with their own lives, they haven't missed me much. Which works out well. We're all too busy for the internet these days, right?
So, what have I been doing, you ask? (Because you're totally, geniunely interested, right?)
-sewing like a fiend lately, because I know those days are numbered. I've actually got a few Christmas gifts out of the way, if you'll believe it!)
-organized ALL our files and family papers (very ugly job, I assure you.)
-got caught up on about a month's worth of coupon clipping and filing. (oh how untorturous that sounds now. It was really quite agonizing.)
-made trips, visited family, enjoyed summerly things
-cleaning, painting, repairing a rental property that has recently come into our possession. (how cool is that?)
-potty training! That's almost three down, one more to go. Yeehaw!
Next to do, get all the school stuff sorted out, get the kids up to date on drs apts and scheduled things, finish work on the house, and find a renter!
So I'll be around, in between projects. In the meantime, perhaps you'd like to hang out at YouTube, or CollegeHumor. There's lots of good stuff there, like this little gem, The Font Conference, passed along by King Pen. It's hilarious. But do come back eventually, yeah? We'll have some coffee or something.

Well, you know Hillary Clinton has fallen out of favor with the media based solely on the pictures they've been publishing lately. Yikes! Is it me, or does this woman scare the pants off you, too? Wonder how many votes Obama will get because of these babies?
(That one wasn't biased at all was it?)
(Sweet, merciful pot of chicken noodle soup, who is this poor woman Hillary is screeching at? Can you imagine getting in trouble with Mama Clinton? *shudder)
And last but not least, this pic. Not so subtle, eh?

Who hasn't watched Texas Walker Ranger with their Grandma? You know you have. And here's why: Chuck rocks. Check out his biceps. His fierce gaze. His killer high-kick. His dreamcatcher. (Proof that he's not only strong, he's enlightened, too.)
For your viewing pleasure:
Whew. That one glove thing is HOT.
And now, some Chuck Norris Facts (as if you didn't already know them):
- Guns don't kill people. Chuck Norris kills People.
- There is no theory of evolution. Just a list of animals Chuck Norris allows to live.
- Chuck Norris does not sleep. He waits.
- When Chuck Norris gives you the finger, he's telling you how many seconds you have left to live.
- The chief export of Chuck Norris is Pain.
- There is no chin under Chuck Norris' Beard. There is only another fist.
- Chuck Norris has two speeds. Walk, and Kill.
- The leading causes of death in the United States are: 1. Heart Disease 2. Chuck Norris 3. Cancer
- Chuck Norris puts the "laughter" in "manslaughter".
- Chuck Norris once punched a man in the soul.
- When the Boogeyman goes to sleep every night he checks his closet for Chuck Norris.
- Once a cobra bit Chuck Norris' leg. After five days of excruciating pain, the cobra died.
- Chuck Norris doesn't read books. He stares them down until he gets the information he wants.
- Chuck Norris doesn't go hunting.... CHUCK NORRIS GOES KILLING
- Chuck Norris once visited the Virgin Islands. They are now The Islands.
- If you spell Chuck Norris wrong on Google it doesn't say, "Did you mean Chuck Norris?" It simply replies, "Run while you still have the chance."
Wow. Whatta man.

Thanks to King Pen for passing along this "vintage" cartoon. It's one of my favorites. If I wasn't destined to marry King Pen (and I was born about forty years earlier), I would be Mrs. Tex Avery right this minute. The man was a comic genius. And that's hot.
Anyway. The little goat reminds us of the Duke, who is cute and mischievous, and occasionally has curls that look like horns.

Czarina informed us tonight that she wants to be called "Petunia". Not to be outdone, HeroBoy has decided that from this day forth, he shall be known as "Tuna."

You guys know how I feel about rubber chickens, so continuing the tradition, I present you with this beauty. Here's my caption, now add yours!
"I regret to tell you this, Mr. Chicken, but you're displaying the early symptoms of what we call Rubberification of the Poultry. It's incurable, irreversible, and eventually leads to Hilarity. I'm so sorry."

I thought a few of you guys would enjoy this little joke:
A man in a hot air balloon realized he was lost. He reduced altitude and spotted a woman below. He descended a bit more and shouted, "Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don't know where I am."
The woman below replied, "You're in a hot air balloon hovering approximately 30 feet above the ground. You're between 40
and 41 degrees north latitude and between 59 and 60 degrees west longitude."
"You must be an engineer," said the balloonist.
"I am," replied the woman, "How did you know?"
"Well," answered the balloonist, "everything you told me is, technically correct, but I've no idea what to make of your information, and the fact is I'm still lost. Frankly, you've not been much help at all. If anything, you've delayed my trip."
The woman below responded, "You must be in Management."
"I am," replied the balloonist, "but how did you know?"
"Well," said the woman, "you don't know where you are or where you're going. You have risen to where you are due to a large quanity of hot air. You made a promise which you've no idea how to keep, and you expect people beneath you to solve your problems. The fact is you are in exactly the same position you were in before we met, but now, somehow, it's my fault."

It's Tuesday. How about some bar jokes? Add 'em if you got 'em!
A jumper cable walks into a bar.
The barman says, "I'll serve you, but don't start anything."
Two peanuts walked into a bar, and one was a-salted.
A neutron walks into a bar. "I'd like a beer" he says. The bartender promptly serves up a beer. "How much will that be?" asks the neutron. "For you?" replies the bartender, "no charge".
A dyslexic guy walks into a bra...
A sandwich walks into a bar.
The barman says, "Sorry, we don't serve food in here."
A priest, a rabbi, and a Baptist preacher walk into a bar. The bartender looks up and says, "What is this, some kind of joke?"
A font walks into a bar.
The bartenders says: "Hey, we don't serve your type in here!"
A mushroom walks into a bar.
The bartender says: "Hey, you look like a fun guy!"
Two cartons of yogurt walk into a bar. The bartender, a tub of cottage cheese, says to them, "We don't serve your kind in here." One of the yogurt cartons says back to him, "Why not? We're cultured individuals."
Oh, it's good to be corny.

"Why am I doing this again?"
"When you can balance a tack hammer on your head, you will head off your foes with a balanced attack."
"And why am I wearing the watermelon on my feet?"
"I don't remember telling you to do that."
Anybody know what that's from?
