This-n-That Thursday

Here we go:
  • If I hear the phrase "on so many different levels" one more time, I'm gonna explode.
  • I am so over this winter.
  • I am also over that Blackberry commercial where they are looking for that Callahan kid.
  • I had a dream last night I was a barber. And all my clients were bald.  WTH?
  • Where are Fred and Bessie?
  • I am seriously concerned about Lisa Rinna's lip issue.  See what I mean? And, let's not talk about that Jo Ann Pflug hair.
  • When did ice on the roads become black ice?  
  • The Bird has agreed to let me go to college with her.  Right Birdy?
  • What do you call it when you get food poisoning from salmon?
  • Seriously, why did I sign up for that half marathon?

Girl, we seem a little testy today. Is it too early for a nap?

Chesapeake Bay Woman said...

I agree, especially about this hateful winter and those hideous lips. She'll end up suffocating herself by blocking her nostrils with her own mouth, before too long, so the shituation will resolve itself.

You signed up for the marathon due to temporary insanity brought on by aforementioned hateful winter and children leaving the nest soon.

It's completely understandable.

If it's too early for a nap, I recommend a mimosa. Bottoms up.

Debbie said...

Winter, Callahan. Over. Lisa's lips drove me crazy Oscar nite. I had to switch channels. I'm sick of people chewing gum with their mouth open. Do they know how ugly they look? Salmonitis?

You can't go to college with Birdy. I want to watch you go crazy after she leaves...misery LOVES company LOL

RiverPoet said...

I can't wait to see what all these people look like when age really kicks in. There will be a bunch of Mickey Rourke's running around (in dresses)....D

Sassy said...

Yep...it's pretty sad when your lips enter a room before you do!!!!! She is getting kinda scary looking! Don't you hate it when your mouth says yes and your gut says NO! Seriously maybe go back to bed for a little while and you'll wake up feelin' better about things...it has got to be the winter and the kiddo's getting ready to fly away...not sure about the bald customers...I was a beauty school dropout and can't even explain it...sorry. Did you get sick from some bad salmon...maybe that explains your dream...

Living on the Spit said...

These posts are only one of the reasons why I love you on so many levels.

I wonder how Lisa Rinna got famous anyway? She must be related to Nadya Suleman somehow.

Would that be "Salmon Ella" poisoning?

Sorority House Mom as a new career?

Half marathon...a momentary lapse of sane reasoning?

Love you.

TSannie said...

I say take a nap right after you finish that mimosa.

Debra (a/k/a Doris, Mimi) said...

I'm having a really crappy week. I can relate to your post today "on many different levels". (sorry)

I don't "get" Lisa Rhinna anyway. Her explosive voice and nails-on-chalkboard laugh grates on me. And those lips? Don't get me started.

When my daughter went away to college several years ago, I decided to return too. I was a full-time student, then I got a full-time job and continued to attend college full time. It was a challenge, but I miss it incredibly. I got straight A's - something I didn't accomplish the first go-around. It was the 70's - need I say more?

I'm sad and tired this week. Looking forward to the weekend. Have a great day!

asthmagirl said...

I am also over this winter. And I can't thank you for making me aware of this woman. I could have gone the rest of my life without looking at those lips... and that hair!

Half marathon? Woot! Go mama!

numberonesistah said...

Ahh Mental P, you crack me up but just on one level, so rest easy.

Did you see Lisa on Dancing with the Stars? She's like totally perfect all the time. I hate those kind of people. I'm thinking her lips are rebelling.

You signed up for a half marathon?! I'll be the one cheering you on with a big old drink of pineapple juice and coconut rum!

thevinylvillage said...

I'll echo what someone else asked...why is Lisa Rinna famous anyhow? (Was she on days of our lives??)

When you inflate your lips to the point that the inside is curling outside...I have to wonder, do these plastic surgeons have no scruples?

Decadent Housewife said...

At least you know who Lisa Rinna is.

Starwoodgal said...

OMG! Lisa Rinna's lips are going to explode. I wonder what they will look like when she's 70 (hmmmm)? Is it just me or was she drunk on the red carpet Sunday night?

Deb said...

Just how much collegen can one body accept?
I don't know what Blackberry commercial you are seeing, but I hate the "your butt called" said by the most annoying wife with bangs from the 60's.
As for salmon...I don't love it and I don't hate it...I just don't eat it.

Cheer up...it's almost the weekend and spring will be there before you know it...(I hope)

Keetha said...

You're going to college? Hip hip hooray!

Daryl said...

This woman has been 'tweaked' so much she and Joan River could soon be one

Trisha said...

Hey - where ARE Fred and Bessie?

imom said...

Lisa Rinna used to have great hair, WTH happened to it?! Her lips have always been creepy.

littletoesandcheerios said...

Oh those lips! So dry all the time...hideous.

Mary Lee said...

When she is old.... where will her lip hang than? Will she be able to eat?

Joanie said...

Hmmm...those lips actually scare me. What is up with that.

I like the blackberry commercial where the "butt" is calling and the "butt" hangs up.

Marathon? Are you nuts?

Winter hasn't really even started yet, get real.

College with Birdy? Ummmmm....

Wine, get some wine. Wish I could have some with you...

Laura ~Peach~ said...

fred and bessie are hopefully heading this way to help me get bradleys room ready... check out my blog we have a new bradley pic!

Noe Noe Girl...A Queen of all Trades. said...

How many different levels are there?

Yep~those lips are to trip over. But its nothing to be concerned about!

You signed up for the half marathon so you could run get some wine!

Treasia said...

Winter is so long gone. I can dream can't I? Those lips are awful, she looks like she been sucking on a grapefruit for a very long time. As for her hair, whats wrong with me, I love it. Seriously I would love to have that hair.

Meg said...

Ick. lisa's hair concerned me far more than her lips. They look like they always do, but my word THAT HAIR!

You can do the HM. You're biggest obstacle is you.

noble pig said...

Gawd Lisa's lips, they are so screwed up...ugh, WTH. There has to be someone who can fix her.

kim-d said...

I just love your This-n-That Thursdays.

I feel the same way about "that being said." And throwing something or someone "under the bus." Enough already. But my all-time most HATED is~~blah, blah, blah, this is the way we will do it "going forward." No, take it and go SIDEWAYS. I insist! :)

And our blizzard has started, so I am also way, way over winter. But, going forward, it looks as though winter isn't done with us. Harumph.

Oh, I could just keep going on and on because I loved every one of these, except that half-marathon thing because that is not something that will ever be on my radar screen. BUT, I can tell you this. STEP AWAY FROM THE COLLEGE-GOING THOUGHTS; STEP AWAY NOW! It isn't fun. It's geared for 18-year-olds, making it not so fun for us. Trust me on this one.

Egghead said...

Lisa's lips have always made me want to pop them with a rusty needle. She grew up in Oregon...I wonder if those are natural.

big hair envy said...

You crack me up....on so many different levels!! Bwahahaha!

Sorry, long day...

MamaGeek @ Works For Us said...

I vote you do the manathon over the marathon.

Okay, nevermind.

I saw that hair and was all like. THE HELL?

imbeingheldhostage said...

because you can do it, that's why you signed up.

Bald people dream: You know Birdy will benefit from your expertise in maneuvering around the college life, but she's resisting with silly phrases like "No, mom, Sit. Stay". That's my interpretation.

You can see why I'm keeping my daytime job of toddler whisperer.

Hilary said...

So who is Lisa Rinna? And why has her mouth begun to morph into an Easter peep?

Country Girl said...

Sorry, I'm still laughing reading CBW's comment here. It's cracking me up on so many different . . . oops. And now that damn commercial is on again.
You'll be fine in the half marathon. It's only half important, right?

Sally said...

That sure doesn't look like Lisa Rhinna; but actually I think her husband looks wierder than she does. :)

Ellen said...

Her lips remind me of Don Knotts in "The Incredible Mr. Limpet" - very fish like.

phd in yogurtry said...

has she ever had lips that didn't look like they belonged on a clown?

bernthis said...

The Lips? Oy my God, what the hell is she thinking. If I walked into my house like that my 5 year old would have me committed.

Suz Broughton said...

That gal's lips are horrid. What is going on there? She CAN'T think that looks good.
Congrats on going to college. Your Birdy will totally love having you there the whole time. Really.

Susiewearsthepants said...

Are those her real lips or injections? Hey...I'm just askin'
