I’m so old I need help understanding…

The Whole-Pants-Worn-Under-Your-Butt-Cheeks phenomenon: Hasn’t this been going on for YEARS now? When is it going to end? The other day at the mall, I saw a GIRL with her pants half off. Every time I see this, I just want to yell: “Hey, your ass is showing, you dumbass!” Crack ain’t cool, fool.

A thirty-dollar-gummy-bear: This thing is the size of a Smithfield ham. And the salesman told me he sells them all the time. Again, why? Aside from that, how would you even eat it? I eat it with a knife and fork. I roll it in a slice of pork. It’s a Dr. Suess side dish.  

Ear gauges: These are dime-sized circles young people, mostly guys, wear in their ears. I’m not sure why. Because it’s cool, I guess. Kinda like the pants-around-the-knees thing. But in 10 years, or maybe even 5, they’re going to have ear flaps. I’m not a doctor, but I’m guessing ear lobes are a lot like breasts. And once they get stretched out. Well. You know. It’s not going to be pretty, boys. You’re going to want ear implants. And I’m pretty sure insurance won’t cover it.


What do you do when you’re bored?

Bring joy to the world with a Sharpie. Or practice for a spelling test.



Gather acorns from the yard, toss them in the fan blower under the hood of the car and see if husband can figure out what that rattle is. Mwahahahaha!









Make alien hat from magnets, Kinex and a tin lid–for a very patient dog.

Forget jolly, sometimes Santa’s just scary…

I know it’s three days past Christmas, but I had to post this picture.

My friend Michelle’s son was fine with Santa as long as he didn’t come too close. Being picked up by Santa was clearly a violation.

PS: This is no mall Santa…it’s his grandpa!

Can I lie?

I have good news and bad news about my blogging adventures.

The good news is I haven’t been yelled at for taking pictures of people’s stuff. Yet.

The bad news is I can’t figure out how to take close-ups of actual people that I want to make fun of–without getting popped in the head.

You see my problem.

I really am too chicken to even try.

So my question is: Can I lie?

Last week at the Flea Market I saw a man in a kilt with a fox-head man-purse hanging from his neck. It was just too good! He was walking right toward me.

My camera was on.  Here he comes…

I couldn’t do it! He walked right past me.

I started following him, stalking him.

Snapping pictures of his rear like a big perv.

Since I couldn’t FACE him, I didn’t even get the MURSE.

Damn! Some journalist I am.

What if I’d said, “Sir, I just love your kilt. I’m Scottish myself. Do you mind if I take a picture?”

Is that bad mojo? Will I ruin my kharma forever?

Am I too old to start lying?

It’s for the greater good–sort of.

Wieners make good noses

GRIN # 12

It’s really starting to surprise me how many GRINS I can find each day. Has it always been this way? I think so, I’m just living more in the present because of the pressure of posting.  I”m anticipating that at some point I’m probably going to get my butt kicked while taking pictures of people’s yards and cars and so forth, but I can play dumb pretty well so I’m hoping that will come in handy. Yesterday, en route to the post office on foot, I found:

Oscar the Weiner Snowman: Yes, if you look closely, that’s a hot dog end for a nose and grapes for the eyes. Who needs buttons and coal?

LEMURS: When loving lovable things just isn’t enough

I really don’t know what to make of this. It looks like a face, doesn’t it? Two holes in the ground that look like a face.  Could it be John Lennon? See the glasses? What do you think? It kind of has a Michael Jackson nose…
