“So, there I was – all out of fuel, bombs, altitude AND ideas…”

The quote in the title of this post is shamelessly stolen from an old boyfriend of mine, who used it whenever he had no explanation for something.  It was usually accompanied by a boyishly charming shrug of the shoulders, and of course all would be forgiven.

Now, granted, he was a tres’ dashing Navy A-6 Intruder Pilot, so the terminology made INFINITELY more sense when he used it than now when I do…but we’re used to stretching around here, so go with me, will ya?

I don’t know what’s wrong with me, but I have NO motivation to blog these days.  Zip. Zilch.  I could weave a tapestry of potential reasons, suppositions and theories as to why, but  don’t even have good ideas for THOSE.

*insert girlishly charming shoulder shrug HERE*

But, I DO miss hanging with y’all, so I wanted to peek in and tell you.  (I suppose this is my version of the aforementioned boyfriend’s “aw, c’mon, honey – forget about all that and let’s have a roll in the sack”.  Or something.)

Anyway, I made you a playlist, so I can’t be a TOTAL shit, right?  (And, he wasn’t either.  Holla, Jeff! 😉 )


*note* – Yes, I realize that if my darling husband Brian ever made mention of an old girlfriend in a similar context, I’d be livid and morph into Medusa with a head full of flaming, venomous snakes. I understand that I’m exercising a ridiculous double standard here, but it’s all done in the name of colorful, hopefully entertaining blog fodder.  Let it be known to one and all that I in no way miss the aforementioned boyfriend, haven’t thought of him in YEARS, and wouldn’t trade my honey for him anyone else – not even if they came with a million dollar bills stuck to them with Pure Vermont Maple Syrup.  Seriously. <3

        i think behr paint (behr.com) has something like that, but i bevleie there is a $5 fee i’ve not used it, but i have looked at colors on the website before. also you can pick up the paint booklets/chips at home depot (from behr) and the booklets has complimentary colors and shows the paint in different rooms.i personally like the behr paint (semi gloss) because its wonderful for being able to clean it especially with kids and crayons, markers, finger paints, etc. it is a little costlier than most paints, but it covers great and last great also if you use the behr paint and there is something wrong with the paint itself a behr representative will come out and paint your walls for you (there has to be something

        I just found a beautiful ariomr at Goodwill for a mere 24.95! I was amazed. It needs a little TLC from my handy hubby, and then I will be giving it a beautiful chalk paint treatment. I can’t wait. Thank you for the recipe. I’m new to your site and definitely appreciate your wisdom after your trial and errors. Thank you!

      Hyde, Al,hAotner benefit of reducing 80% of the population is that real estate prices would crash down to 1940s levels. Plus we are saving animals. To me the whole plan is a win win.

      Dude, I don’t want to claim all the fundamentalist Evangelicals beating their adopted kids to death, preaching hate and generally being azzholes, but I don’t get to exclude them from my religion just because I think they’re doing it wrong. They claim to be fundamentalist evangelicals, well, I don’t get to say no. Even when we’re talking about loonies like Westboro Baptist that I’d prefer to phrase as a cult, too. I just have to try and make it clear that *I* and other Christian types don’t agree with their nonsense. I think you Mormans are in the same boat with the FLDS.

      … "Please consider the possibility that the problem might not be religion, the problem might be YOUR own unconscious prejudice toward it. It's the same kind of prejudice that some Whites have toward Blacks."You nailed it. All it takes is for ONE Black to do wrong, and all Blacks are guilty. Val ought to STFU.You beat me to it. Val need to keep her damn ignant mouth shut. Stupid beyotch.

      So Mark, instead of trying to make this about me, stay focused. Pbrain compared the candidates and issues in the upcoming elections to those this nation faced in 1776. I say it’s hyperbole. How do you feel aout it.As to the name calling, the moniker Pbrain stays. If he doesn’t like it, too bad.. He should have thought about that when Pbrain dredged up an issue from my past that had nothing to do with the subject at hand. He mocked me even though my position on the long past issue was the same as his. The difference was that I took action, he merely flaps his yap. By definition the guy is a Pbrain
