Whoda Thunk It

So I was cleaning out my purse today and I came across an insert from a box of cigerettes. It said "learn more about the fashion designer behind this pack design." Well I had to turn the page and who did I see.... San-friggin-tino Rice. He didn't win project runway season 2 but he stole our hearts with scenes like these

According to Santino " I enjoy creating music, illustrations, photography, playing with graphics. That sense of excitement and stimulation is what drew me to working with Camel to design this pack." Wow Sanitino that sounds a little to sensical to have come out of your mouth.

FYI while searching for some images to included in the post I came across many angry articles aimed at Camel for there clever marketing of this product. Here are some of my favorite mock-ups.

Thank You Lulu

This weekend Lulu invited the gang up to her cabin at Shaver Lake. So thank you Lulu for letting us invade your family's cabin. As I sit here on my couch I have found memorizes of

  1. When Adam took us on a wild Geocaching Chase and I fell into the creek.
  2. The fun times at the Fire Pit.
  3. All the Rum & Cokes
  4. Crank Calling Carly in Pittsburgh at 2:00 a.m
  5. Corin Hoggard making us breakfast

More Ideas

It's getting closer. We are half-way into our 30 day escrow on our first home. I think I've pretty much made up my mind about the couch for the living room so my thoughts turn to paint. I would really like to paint it blue so here are a few ideas. I have my favorites but what are your thought. Of course Ed and I have the final say.

This first one is called Studio Green

This is cooler blue called Frank Blue. It's pretty bright.

And this one is Secure Blue. I don't know where they came up with this name. I didn't know colors had emotional qualities
This is Smokey Blue.

Sofa King

I always said if we got our own place I was going to toss our old (seriously old) sofa out the window. Well I don't think I can through it out the window but I will be getting rid of it. But that leaves me with the problem of finding a new one. I've found a few that I like and of course I will have to test them out but I was wondering your thoughts. Please bear in mind these may not be the actually color but more the style. But I like some of these colors so let me know. Or if you totally detest my style feel free to tell me that too.

Who is this? Want some hints? She's 62, an academy award winner and looks hotter than most of us ever will. It's Helen Mirren. Wow that's a crazy good bod at any age.

Comment FAIL

So about a year and a half ago I ran a post entitled Hair Club for Cat's? Today Puddles received a solicitation via the comments box for hair restoration. Thank God she can't read. Thank God the solicitor did realize she is a cat.

I don't know what recently came over puddles but the other day I caught her trying on various hair pieces. I think she is going with the "Trump Look"

I think that you discuss quite a common problem on your blog. People have already tried pills, lotions, drops, wigs, glue adhesives, toupee tape and clips, and everything of the kind. There is a very informative and useful site, where I learned about this company. HairClub offers a wide range of treatment methods to ensure enough hair coverage.

The Boys

Here's a picture of my nephews a week later. They look much cuter and I can see they are going to be trouble makers.

When in doubt improvise

So I was listening to a Los Anglos News/Talk radio station today. They were covering the sentencing of the "Black Widow" murder case and they mentioned that one of the defendants showed up to court in curlers. It sounded hilarious so I had to see for myself. It took a little bit of time but I was able to locate a video that showed the defendant in rollers. Unfortunately I was hoping to see that old lady that is on the Shoebox Greeting Cards but this is what I saw.

It may be hard to see but one of the old ladies has what looks like barrettes in her hair (Can be seen at :04-:06). Upon closer examination these are in fact curlers (seem to be the variety that Carly wears). So instead of a hearty laugh I give her mad props. So what she didn't have any barrettes she didn't let that stop her. So aside from your hideous crimes, you go girl!

Science Bitches! (on loan from Adam)

I heard this story today and it made me chuckle. I've been catching myself thinking about it and laughing all day.

A special meeting about Dallas County traffic tickets turned tense and bizarre this afternoon.

County commissioners were discussing problems with the central collections office that is used to process traffic ticket payments and handle other paperwork normally done by the JP Courts.

Commissioner Kenneth Mayfield, who is white, said it seemed that central collections "has become a black hole" because paperwork reportedly has become lost in the office.

and the following takes place.

Other county officials quickly interceded to break it up and get the meeting back on track. TV news cameras were rolling, after all.

Sweet Dreams

So I have no idea why this happens but I often have crazy dreams. Maybe being crazy has something to do with it.

Last night was so crazy I had to share, so get ready for a look into my inner psyche.

I dreamed that Ed and I were visiting Jay and Becky. They lived in Condo-like place with a couple other people.

For some reason Jay set his neighbor's house on fire. It was poor old lady. As she was screaming that her house was on fire, Ed and Jay went speeding away in the Civic for some more mayhem. Where were they going? To kill the dad from 7th Heaven of course! I can't remember how they killed this guy but they did dismember him, put him in a plastic bag and stuff him in the trunk. Only problem is the trunk wouldn't close. But these guys seemed none too concerned about this even when the security guard at Jay's new place looked at the trunk suspiciously .

The next day we all went on an outing to find a barrel of acid to put the guy in. The dream gets too fuzzy to remember from there but it was pretty disturbing

Kinda Interested

Any One Else?


As some of you may already know I've been trying to loose some unwanted pounds by sticking to a 1200 calorie a day diet and only allowing 12 fat grams per serving. This has been going on for approximately 3 weeks. The last few days I have been getting strong cravings for something fatty. I hear it is okay to cheat every once in a while on your diet so I decided today was the day.

But where should I splurge?? Should I get some crackers and a can of easy cheese? No, I might over do it and get a tummy ache. I finally decided on an IN-N-OUT grilled cheese with fries. It was about double my usual meal calories and fat intake but it was wonderful and sure hit the spot.

Thank you fat for tasting so good.
