Just Some Year End Odds and Ends

Forgive me Father Al for I have sinned against climate in a most unforgivable way. I condoned and joined in the purchasing and blowing up of various fireworks on New Year's Eve. After the festivities a huge black ball of smoke rose in the air and headed south, therefore it is clearly not my problem.

PSA I was burned at The Jumping Place while Sliding. Keep your arms raised in praise or suffer the consequences. Lean and I slid down one of those ginormous inflatable slides only; Hello!, no one told us not to put our arms down on the slide and now look at our matching elbow burns.

Ted and I remain BFFs even though there is no picture of us together. No email is good email.
After some concern that I might be a little too interested in movies with cannibalism I discovered that I have only seen four of the top ten. If you've seen more you are depraved and must seek help from a professional.

I sold 43 packages of Pretty Bacon Ornaments for the Holidays. That is 258 slices of bacon that I glittered by hand. That is a lot of bacon and now I hear Bacon is retiring--well we shall see.

Mr. Edless' crocheted bloody bone stump remains one of the most clicked upon photos of 2008.
And look at his mouth: FREAKY

I'm glad that your burns weren't worse - I thought that perhaps you'd been in a massive conflagration...

I've only seen two of those cannibal films - I think we both need to watch some more.

That is one long tongue. One VERY LONG tongue!

I feel so bad for Lean. Not for you because you are all grown'd up.

Also, I do not agree with the retiring of Bacon. Nope.

Father Al said...

Unforgivable! How dare you Madam!
You should be ashamed of yourself.
Now, as punishment, go plant 20 beans and adopt 5 bears.

Mr. Edless said...

When you see my mouth like that is becuase I wan to eat some of that purty bacon.

I am not all said...

Your poor elbows :(
SUe them Jean Knee! Sue them for all they have and then buy yourself a Mr. Edless and feed it pretty bacon.

Pretty bacon can't even spell.

This is one of the many reason why he's getting retired.

Wow, who are all these freaky weridos commenting?

I am happy you everyone wants a piece of pretty bacon :) Pretty bacon for all!

No Cool Story said...

weridos = weirdos.

It's me and pretty bacon misspelling. I hope I don't get retired too.

Jean Knee said...

I love you Bacon!
I will fool you, Bacon!
I can't leave you Bacon!
I need you Bacon!

remember how I ate you on New Year's Eve? And you were cooked on the grill so you didn't leave your bacon scent all over the house.

BACON!! said...

How can I forget? Remember how you were drooling as I made that poppetty, sizzling sound?
I was mighty delicious wasn't I?

Don't be BFF with Ted no more. Let's you and me be BFFFF!

Ooo, those burns look gnarley! My legal councel says that you should definately sue on that one!

Oh and you forgot to mention something else that you did. You keep stirring the sh%t over at my blog! (Although, I do have to admit, I'm kind of enjoying it)

Also, I need your expert advice Oh Great And Wise Jean Knee.
I have somehow been talked into letting my oldest have a slumber party for her 9th birthday. It's on the 17th. What am I supposed to do with 7 girls?
Please help Jean Knee! I'm desperate here!
I might send you some veal if you help. :)

Rhonda said...

Ouch! I think it might just be you though. We go to those places at least once a week and no one has come home with an injury like that.

Lisa said...

That takes some talent to get matching burns.

I'm also impressed with your bacon making/selling skillz. Way to bacon!

Thank you Lisa. I do it all for my fans.
