Christmas Heat...

sitd1

I am thinking that Australia should just have a Christmas buffet of various MELTS for its Christmas fare ...

sitd2

Cheese melts, tuna melts, melting moments ... even things like s'mores and fondues would do well ... just set out on table and wait ... if anyone asks ... it is supposed to look that way!. It certainly beats trying to explain melted turkey and green salad ...and my favourite ...jello ring soup!

sitd3

Then it goes with the face melts and the puddles in chairs where people used to sit .... although I quite like my mother in law as a puddle ...less intimidating...add some ducks lily pads and she can be darn right cute ...

All that Glitters is ... Grandma's Teeth??

gbl2

Ever noticed how your grandparents are obsessed with hoarding money/gold/treasure?

gbl1

We finally got grandma out of her pirate outfit and told her there was no more treasure at the nursing home ... Johnny Depp had already been there and plundered the lot .. and then we had her over for some Christmas cheer. She is obsessed with gold and keeping every little piece she has because it is "going to be worth a fortune and just what do we think we will do if one day we can't afford toilet paper?" She wanted my husband to pull his gold tooth ... for the sake of the economy ...

I was putting out the dessert when I looked over at the tree and noticed that all the gold balls on the tree were dull and gray. I walked over and looked at them and they had all these striations on them and I looked to the floor and there were little flecks of gold leading right back to grandma's chair ...

I walked over to her and she looked up at me and smiled ... her false teeth were covered in gold flecks ...she had been gnawing the christmas balls again!! A quick check of her purse found a baggy full of gold flecks. She seemed oblivious to the improprieties and unsanitary conditions of her gnawing the Christmas balls .. and went right on slurping her mince tart....

My husband was like, "OMG! What are we going to do about this? "

I told him to relax ...

gbl3

Boxing Day we should be able to score some new gold Christmas balls for a decent price ... once I hocked Grandma's teeth ...

Christmas Schedules.

ljg1

I have been listening to the big run downs for everyone's Christmas schedule.  

ljg2

You know where you go over in the morning somewhere and then you hang out until the evening when you eat .. by then everyone is cranky and OD'd on candy canes and heard Uncle Jim's story about how he killed a bear with his bare hands last winter 18 times, and seen the slides of John and Mary's trip around the world where the Pope himself blessed them - one too many times (as in once was too many times) and the kids have broken their toys and you are no longer speaking to your husband on account of what he said to his brother about you taking a "large" now and not a "small" like last year ....

ljg3 

Which is probably one of the main reasons egg nog was invented, egg nog, and wine and champaigne, and specialty beer and Grandma's extra proof scotch ... and regardless of your normal stand on drinking ... during anything family .. you should drink .. lots .. that way you might actually survive another year ...

Beware the Bears ...

lio1

I was never quite sure why everyone always wanted to try and cuddle "bears" of all things ...

lio2

I mean trying to dress them in cute little clothes and make out like they were dolls ... what was up with that? I think it was probably some kind of bear conspiracy to lure lunch stupid people into the woods.  While you are busy trying to be all cuddly, the bear is occupied dreaming of ways he is going to rip your limbs apart.

lio3 

Kind of like how the farmer tries to give the chicken a cuddle, tucking the chicken under his arm, picking up the hatchet and offering a steamy bath .... only in a more realistic, not dressed in ballerina or yodeling outfits kind of way ...

In The Jungle, The Mighty Jungle.

toj2

I had a dream last night about jungles and I looked it up and it said dreaming about jungles is a prompt for what you should blog about and to make sure I apply the jungle theme to the whole day.

toj1

Just so you know, I am sitting in my loin cloth as I type this and I frequently stop and beat my chest and do my tarzan yell. 

It did get me to thinking though.  I thought about Darwin's Theory and how glad I am that we have evolved because Tarzan and Jane never wore boots in the jungle and clearly ... farmers are a much higher species than I ever imagined.  I mean farmers wear boots.  Now on the prairies where there is nothing for miles you can easily see the cow doo doo and avoid it.  I would like to point out that in the jungle, elephant doo doo would be MUCH bigger but it would not be easy to see under all those trees and snakes and big bugs and other ickky things.  Can you imagine stepping in that accidentally?  

I therefore determined that yes Tarzan was not very bright although I give him credit for staying in the trees and doing his swinging up there and I think we now all understand why ...and that should I ever be in the jungle I would most definitely wear boots - but NOT farmer boots ....something sexier ....and less bovine-ish.

toj3 

And this, ladies and gentlemen, concludes this weeks fashionista's National Geographical Wild Kingdomish dreamland.  Come back next week ... or not ... I understand the cows come first ....

A Peaceful Christmas.

spf2

I always think it is important to create moments for yourself when you are stressed and Christmas is one of those times when we are most stressed....

spf1

That's when I like to tell the kids to go and wait for me in the car.

spf3 

The fact I am not going anywhere until tomorrow is irrelevant ... they are in the car ... and I am not ...

Oops Forgot My Pants!!

pnib1 
 Ya, I did, I forgot my pants ... that happened a lot during the seventies.

  pnib2 

 We tried lots of stuff .. things like singing "Tarzan the Monkey Man lost his pants and away he ran..." as we ran out the door. But what they didn't show you in the Tarzan cartoons is that Tarzan's people hunted him down and brought him back eventually and being half naked when you were about to get the whooping of your life was not a smart thing to do. I theorize that children on the Canadian prairies survived their upbringings mainly BECAUSE it was so cold and we have 18 layers of clothing on to protect our asses. So then I just tried teenage snottiness .... when caught in town with only a top on and Grandma fanning herself to try and create some air after she sucked it all out of the atmosphere with her over exaggerated GASP.... screaming ..."YOU forgot your pants!!!"

 "Ya ... and YOU forgot your false teeth but you don't see me screaming about it do you?"

  pnib3 

 It is funny how Tarzan's people look a lot like farmers on the prairies of the frozen northland ...

Not Even a Mouse ...

mac1

I am not big into mice. Sorry .. but when you grow up on a farm you sort of separate the animals into two groups - "dinner" and "not dinner."

mac2

The "NOT dinner" components are usually nuisances ....that could be wolves and bears because they keep trying to kill you, or it might be skunks because they use chemical warfare, or mice because they are everywhere they shouldn't be, including your bed sometimes at night or under the chair you are standing on screaming.

mac3

Ya ... farmers pretty much stand and cheer when they hear that line "not a creature was stirring .. not even a mouse ..." It is tradition, like Handel's Messiah's Hallelujah Chorus only with more farm animals and lots of cowboy boots.

Snow Fairy Me.

ww2

I couldn't stand anymore .. everyone posting pics of twinkle lights and snow ...

ww1

So I spent all morning hole punching paper, making confetti "snow"and I went outside and leapt through the air and threw the "snow" up .... and danced .... except that paper snow, in this humidity, just kind of sticks to your sweaty body AND the neighbour standing there watching you and then he says things like "You'd better pick up every single shred of that paper or I am reporting you for littering, that's a $5,000.00 fine you know ..."

ww3a

...which technically, is not at all Christmassy ...

...but then neither was the standing partridge out of the pear tree that I gave him ....although it IS a Christmas Bird.

POE HUNT - SD

POE 4 - SD 3

Yup one last kick at the can here - probably the most important ... for your personal happiness and peace on earth, you need to relax more.

POE 4 - SD

What is more relaxing than an adult jungle gym where you can jump and then fall and go to sleep immediately ....just bring a blankie and someone to read you a bed time story ... perfect ...



The Fourth Annual Peace On Earth Gridwide Hunt will commence December 1st, 2011 and run through the holiday season until January 3rd, 2012. The ideal and spirit of the POE hunt is about “GIVING”. It is from that principle that the POE has become one of the most looked forward to holiday events and a tradition in Second Life.

Tantrums.

LTR1

I love this time of the year when the kids are out of school and the parents wander around dazed and confused not sure how they will cope until school is back in, what with Christmas and in laws and elves and reindeer all running amuck ...

LTR2

I like watching children hone their bargaining skills in the store. They allow the parents to become frustrated, then they ask for something, never let the word "no" deter them, ask again, ask again, ask again, ask again, (becoming more whiney and louder each time) and then create a huge scene and throw themselves on the floor and have a tantrum .... until they get what they want ....

It can be very effective, parents usually give in ...

LTR3

It also works well on husbands ... trust me ...

Solutions.

piww3

I had someone read my Tarot Cards the other day and they told me I need to look in unexpected places for solutions to my problems. ...that they are right in front of me if I would just open my eyes.

piww2

So I looked everywhere as I drove to do some shopping, I looked at the houses, the people, the cars, the cats and dogs, even IN other people's cars. I looked up and down the aisles in stores ....until finally, in the drug store, I saw it ... RIGHT before my eyes ... a SOLUTION!!!!!

piww4

I am just not sure how to use it or what to do with it ... so far SALINE Solution has not done a damn thing. My wallet is wet, not filled with money. The money tree I planted is now dead. My kids are no better behaved and my mother in law called the police and said I tried to drown her.

Not to worry I found another Solution at the Grocery store. Anyone know what C-L-E-A-N-I-N-G is anyway???

POE HUNT - Ear Candy, Dench Designs & The Greenwood

POE 4 - Ear Candy, Dench Designs & The Greenwood 3

A nice roaring fire on a freezing day can make you incredibly happy ....especially if you have evidence to burn....

POE 4 - Ear Candy, Dench Designs & The Greenwood 4

....like the receipts for a beautiful snow globe and a hot pair of shoes and a great necklace and earrings!!

I love snowglobes, I pretend my husband is in there and I shake it and shake it until there is a fierce blizzard and then I scream and scream and then when it all calms down and the snow gently falls in the globe, I get calmer. AND ... hubby is still alive ... BONUS!!!

p.s. but sometimes you can shake it too hard and the Baby Jesus ends up over by the donkey or under a camel ...

I'm Cool!!

bir1

Come Celebrate with me!! It is Raining!

bir2

I can breathe again ... My yard has transformed from a dirt bowl to a mud bowl to a lawn again ... the birdies are singing, the frogs are making that terrible noise they make but I DON'T CARE!! It is 7:25 AM and I am not a puddle under my chair. I can wear make-up, I don't stick to my chair, ... can you hear the angels singing?? I can ...

bir3

AND I learned that my neighbours are all poopheads and would rather sleep than listen to me screaming "I AM COOL!!" at 4 AM as I dance naked in the yard. That is what happens when you get old ... you stop caring about being cool, you don't dance, and you never get naked.

Raindrops on Roses.

bsb2

Life does not always translate easily into a musical.

bsb1

Like when your grandmother tells you your room is a mess and you should clean it up at least 18 times and you don't and then she appears in your room and sees all the mess everywhere it is not a good time to tell her that "these are a few of my favourite things" and grab her hands and twirl and dance like it was all planned ....

bsb3

I think it is because nowhere in the song does Julie Andrews mention "half eaten cheese sandwich and empty cans of pop," even though those are right up there with "whiskers on kittens" and "silver white winters that melt into spring ..."
