Not sure what's going on but for some reason, I can't respond to any comments!!

Secondhand Sunday

Sundays are my Secondhand day. I'm basically too lazy to think of anything new to say so I re-post a "vintage" entry.

If you aren't in the mood for repeats, please feel free to change the channel.

When I was a little girl, one of my favorite games was called "What Shall I Be?"

This exciting game showed us all the options that were available for the aspiring career girl in 1972.

The most helpful thing was that you could look at your personal attributes and weed through the careers to find the one you were best suited for.

You are emotional: Good for Model and Actress

You failed biology: Bad for Teacher and Nurse

You have a nice smile: Good for Airline Hostess and Model

You are overweight: Bad for Airline Hostess, Ballet Dancer and Model

You are pretty: Good for Model and Actress

You are clumsy: Bad for Airline Hostess, Ballet Dancer, Model and Nurse

You are friendly: Good for Airline Hostess, Nurse and Teacher

You are a slow thinker: Bad for Airline Hostess and Nurse

You are calm in an emergency: Good for Airline Hostess, Nurse and Teacher

You get too excited: Bad for Airline Hostess and Nurse

Oh, the dreams that were available to us as young ladies...

What a crock of shit!

The years I wasted when I could have had this lovely as my role model.

"She starts dancing when the music starts and goes up and down and round and round."

The personality cards would still be helpful for choosing the right career.

You would be a great pole dancer if:

You are pretty

You aren't clumsy

You failed biology

You are a slow thinker

You have a nice smile

We've come a long way, baby.

I could watch this ALL day!

Watch the little dancing machine in the background. Talk about stealing someone's spotlight!

I sleep solo

Tuesday, May 17, 2011

I've never been very keen on sharing my bed with anyone.

No, not even then.

After we do the deed, put your pants on and leave. Or sleep on the couch or something. That Lucy and Ricky knew what they were doing by sleeping in separate beds.

That said, when I say that I sleep solo, that means no pets, either. For as much as I love them, I prefer that they sleep comfortably in their beds next to mine. That hasn't been a problem so far since Bernie is too chubby to jump on the bed anyway. The only time I bring her up is during a thunderstorm to calm her down.

Vinny slept on my bed the first few nights I brought him home but he stopped for a while when I mistook him for a pile of blankets and kicked him off the bed. Twice.

Since Millie's been here, Vinny has decided that daytime is dog time. He lets me hang out on the couch with them and take them out for walks with nary a meow. But when it's time for bed, that's Vinny's time.

Both girls are lounging in their beds so right before I turn the light off, I yell, "Vin Vin!" and I hear his bell tinkling up the steps as he races to my bedroom. To ensure that no one thinks he's a Mama's Boy, he stops just short of the door and casually strolls toward the bed.


I told you that Vinny had started peeing in the house again with the warmer weather but ever since Millie has joined the household, he's stopped. I think she's his muse or something. He just sits and stares at her for the longest time. He must be excited by the thought of the taboo of their love and always seems startled when I catch him looking at her.

"What? Um, no, I wasn't looking at a dog. I was staring at a bird. Yeah, that's it...a bird."

I'm beginning to think that sleeping solo is overrated.

Just give me 5 more minutes...

New dance craze

Wednesday, May 11, 2011

Okay, so how many of you remember the 80's classic, Weekend at Bernie's, where these two young guys were invited to spend the weekend with their boss at his house in the Hamptons?

As you may recall, Bernie died shortly after they got there but since they didn't want to give up their one chance at Hamptons reveling, they pretended that Bernie was alive.

Here's the newest dance craze inspired by the movie. I tried doing it but I got dizzy!

Can you do it??

Chrissy's real truth about life that no one will tell you.

"What if the Hokey Pokey really IS what it's all about?"

Monday Morning Bernie & Millie

Monday, May 9, 2011

Hi Guys! Sorry, I've been a lame-o and haven't posted anything worthwhile lately. I've been having a really hard time with things, especially with Mother's Day, so I've just been trying to keep busy with both houses.

I did manage to go out and buy a Flip video camera but I haven't had much time for anything other than lame videos. Get used to 'em. I'm going to start a library of them once I can figure out how. This is the first one.

If you're a Facebook friend, you've already been treated to it but here it is again.

You're welcome...

This is pretty much how Bernie looks all the time. Caught Millie in a down moment.

Monday Morning Vinny

My new favorite show is Selling New York.

I'm afraid this is all Mommy can afford, Vinny. Move over.
