So, I used to love K C & the sunshine band back in the olden days before music videos- that's right the 70's. I guess I never really saw them in person or in Tiger Beat or anything. Saw this on youtube

OMG Is this really what KC looked like? With his eyes bugging out all over the place and that obsessive blinking. Really?

The best thing about this video is the shot of the band member with the plaid shirt and suspenders showing his chest hair and beating a tambourine.

Zombies VS. Kitties

You've probably seen those new books where zombies are interwoven into classic literature. The most popular being Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. I have not read it. I know you must wonder why haven't I?

Well it is true that I have a love for all things zombie; horror movies, killing zombies in violent video games, reading pulpy zombie literature etc, etc. Then why haven't I read Pride and Prejudice and Zombies? It's not because of those darling zombies it's because I can't stand that hack Jane Austin. Even zombies couldn't persuade me to give her another shot. So I've resigned myself to the fact that those books are simply out of my range.

Except yesterday I was at the library and I spied it on the shelf. The Meowmorphosis. Oh my dawg!!! it's a twist on Kafka's The Metamorphosis. Remember that dear book where the dude wakes up one morning and has turned into a cockroach? I adore that story. Only this time the dude wakes up and has turned into a sweet little kittie. The family, much like myself, is equally as revolted by the dude being a little kittie as by a slithering cockroach. I mean really don't you just want to slam some of those LOL cats upside their heads? eeekkk

Anyway since it's not drippy Jane Austin but cool Franz , father of the magic mushroom, Kafka I can read it.

I am still left with the question which is more terrifying; zombies or adorable little kitties?

# 1 Dad

Just a little while ago Lean came in and asked me the date. I told her and she said, "that's funny cause my calendar says Father's Day is June 19 th." That can't be right, she must be looking at the wrong calendar because we celebrated Father's day this past Sunday. We searched the internet and it was true, Father's Day is June 19 th. Oh my gawwwwd this can't be right.

On Sunday we placed little #1 dad medallions on the coffee pot, in his easy chair, the steering wheel of Drew's car etc etc for him to find all day. I had ordered them early so we would have them in plenty of time. That's them in the picture, pretty cute, Huh? My plan was to string them into a #1 dad banner after Drew had found them all. I know.

He found most of them and we piled in the car because we had lunch reservations in a small quaint Inn several towns away. We snuck another #1 dad medallion on his place setting and he wore it on his lapel. "That's right world , it's Father's Day and I'm the #1 dad." Yess.

It was a really nice lunch with five courses. We had enough left over for dinner that night, the end of Father's Day. ahhhhh I'm pretty sure Drew had a good day. : ) I called my dad and wished him Happy Father's Day and we talked for a while.

But ooops. It wasn't Father's Day and we celebrated any way. No one told us any different.

So we're thinking about celebrating independence day this Sunday, June 19. What do you think?

What Kind of Sad, Sadistic Mother Am I?

My precious little Lean asked me to take her and a friend to the store to buy some filled eggs for them to hide and find. I, obviously from the title , said no. No matter that this will probably be the last year she even wants to hide eggs- I'm too lazy to go get her some eggs. You know what she did then?? Called me a cow and threw herself on the bed? Good guess but that was last week. She and the friend wrapped little snacks in paper towels and taped them to look like eggs. And we only had stuff like peanut butter chips and bread sticks. Then she asked me to hide them for her. The eggs were so sad. But , as I am sadistic as before mentioned, I hid them and was thankful I didn't have to drive to the store.

It's So Fucking Cold

There's no other way to describe it. It's not effing cold, it's not frickin cold, it is fucking cold. Sometimes only a childish profanity can truly describe something so horrible. How cold is it Jeanknee?
1. it is so cold that the dog has to come inside. The dog (I'm combining the horrors of both my dogs into one persona--the dog) stinks and piddles on the carpet. The dog will not poop in the cold so is full of foul flatulence that he releases every chance he gets.

2. It is so cold that our energy services can't keep up with the demand for more power so they have instated rolling blackouts. You can be without power at any time with no notice whatsoever.

3. because of the rolling blackouts they want to cancel school which means the kids are home with you in your flatulent house, being bored and hungry. You are out of milk

4. It is so cold that something malfunctioned at the water plant. There are numerous back hoes and men standing around with WTF expressions on their faces. Your husband reports this and tells you to fill up containers with water fast. All the dishes in the entire household are dirty. Hmmm what to do? Use what little water remains to clean the dishes after which there will be no water left to fill the clean dishes , or fill dirty dishes with water? Instead fill sink with water for emergency. Later your daughter will have to shower in a slow drizzle because the next day is picture day.

5. It is so cold that we have to drip all the faucets. drip drip....drop drip drip drip...dr dr dr drip going on night and day almost in sync with the foul flatulent emissions

6. It is so cold that it snows a good bit. Meaning no school therefore I'm bored , I'm hungry is reinstated. The only available play mate is forbidden to play in the snow. She can stay inside and play wii or watch TV and also get in on the I'm bored, I'm hungry. Sure let them stay cooped up inside all day with dripping and flatulence, mindlessly watching the tube. For goodness sakes don't let them run around and have fun in the snow which we only get once every three years or so. What is wrong with people?

7. it is so cold that we have discovered a burst pipe. yea! At least it is outside and now frozen over.

It's My New Valentine Card

Here it is folks, my new card for V Day. Notice that nice vintage feel?

I know you're all wondering how I came up with such a fabulous card Huh? I will let you in on my creative card thought process just this once.

My dad gave me a necklace that said "If daughters were flowers I'd pick you"
Then the pick part reminded me of noses which reminded me of a young adult novel where the character says "God gave me my looks, but he let me pick my nose". Whack the two together and there you have it. Let's hope it sells better than last
