Listening to FDR’s Fire-Side Chats

March 1, 2016

I traveled back in time today! And not just once…at least five times.

You might be asking yourself what kind of time machine I have and why I haven’t shared it with the world. Well, the kind of time travel that I experienced was one that may be available to many of you.

It’s called going to the house of a relative that was born in the early 1900’s and has kept most of the technology and memorabilia of that time. Try it, it’s a HOOT!

I made phone calls today from a rotary phone. Yup, the kind where you have to put your finger in a wheel-like contraption, turn the wheel clockwise to the end, and then let go of the wheel and wait for the process of the number to dial. I was so tickled by doing this that I kept dialing the wrong number. It is the original phone that was installed into the wall when the house was built in 1952!!! I just couldn’t believe that this phone still WORKED.

How to get courage to writing it all down

February 16, 2016

Every night I sit down at my computer and think of the great humor I read on other blogs and the funny posts that I can relate to. I then look at the blank screen and want to write about those things but I just can’t seem to get my fingers to follow suit (most of the time).

Not that I think there’s anything wrong with writing funny life stories or scenarios that moms can relate to regarding our kids (I have those and write about them sometimes) but I just don’t gravitate towards those things when I sit down to write. Continue 

Funny Fantasy Football Team Names

January 4, 2016

It’s fantasy football time again, so I’ve decided to give some unsolicited advice on how to choose funny fantasy football team names.

For those of you unfamiliar with the whole fantasy football thing, basically it is some sick obsession with tracking football stats and creating your own virtual team of real, live, breathing point scoring players. You go to a site like NFL.com and join a league and then you pick your players and hope that they outscore all of the other teams you play. If you love football, it’s a lot of fun. If you hate football, well then it probably seems like a pointless waste of time.

Hide Your Pets!

December 19, 2015

I make a lot of jokes on my blog about my boyfriend Dave’s beer drinking, but it is all in good fun. The fact is, however, that when we first got together, he still enjoyed partying with his friends a little too much.

Shortly after he moved in with me, he decided to stay out all night, and not only he, but all his buddies were supposed to be learning for the exam. The next morning, one of his friends brought him home to one very pissed girlfriend. We soon got into a huge argument that resulted in me kicking him out. I threw his things out into the yard, then I picked up his old tom cat, his GED practice  books, and the litterbox. The cat, sensing my anger, jumped out my arms. I then threw the litter box at my boyfriend sending kitty litter all over his friend’s car. His friend got mad and started yelling at me so I told him to get the hell out of my yard before I threw something through his windshield.

Stupidity Wanted

June 8, 2015

It’s very strange. I’ve gone a whole week and not seen anything stupid. While it’s fun to see what stupid stuff I can find on the internet is available, I really like seeing stupidity in person.

We had a few opportunities this week where I thought FOR SURE we’d see something stupid…yet to our amazement, nothing stupid was to be seen. (I didn’t think this would even be possible to go this long without seeing something stupid!)

Stupid Book Titles

June 8, 2015

I was innocently browsing along Amazon.com today when it struck me how many dumb book titles there are. Here I’ll share with you a handful of the bizarre books I found:

1. Book #1: Cheese Problems Solved

This book Cheese Problems Solved is a must-have for anyone who faces chronic problems with cheese. For $249 (no, that’s not a typo) it better solve a heck of a lot more problems than just ones caused by cheese…

2. Book #2: How to Read a Book
At 426 pages, How To Read a Book may not be for beginners or people who have never read before. Continue 

What to Do With Old Phone Books and Gigantic Catalogues

June 8, 2015

A few months ago we ordered a few electronic components from a company called Mouser.com. (They are really great if you need anything electrical!) But, ever since then we’ve been receiving this lovely 2500+ page catalog in the mail.

At first we thought it wasn’t very smart for them to mail us this 5 lb. catalog in the mail each month, especially since we only spent about $15 online and probably will not need to buy anything from them again anytime soon.

Now that we’ve come up with some new creative uses for the Mouser Catalog however, we’ve actually started to look forward to seeing them dumped in the ditch below our mailbox. (A 2500+ page catalog does not fit in a standard sized mailbox!) Continue
