Friday Fragments


Finally, back to a real post where I can just ramble what's on my mind- and ramble, I plan to do! What better way than with Friday Fragments...

***Mrs. 4444's has been dealing with a devastating loss this week and I wanted to mention that my thoughts and prayers are with her during this difficult time!


*** As you may know, we got back from vacation at Gulf Shores this week. I always have good intentions about recapping activities, but when it comes down to it, it bores me, my family , pictures, sunsets- YAWN... so if you are a visitor that stops by just once in a while (and reads only the top post)- I purged 4 vacation posts in the last two days- feel free to go back and catch up with me!

*** I have been 'Booed'- It's Halloween, but I don't know what the hell that means, but I'm going to go to every person I can think of and Boo you , too. I got it from Annie at Cookies (that's my new abbreviation for her because her blog title has simply gotten too long for me and my short attention span to type out and I love cookies- so BONUS! ) I have gone through and left many a comment that I was 'booing' you- some new friends that I have been stalking, some old friends, some people that probably are getting the restraining order paperwork in line, as we speak...- it was very random- I work well that way. So when I 'Boo' you , you must post this and mention that some stupid bitch (that would be me) 'booed' you so you would give her some linky love... it's really just a cheap ploy for readers (and smiles, of course!), isn't it Annie? Cause let's be honest- there's no freaking candy!!!

*** My house is being swarmed by ladybugs! It happens every year around this time and it grosses me out. Before we moved out to the Boonies, I, like the rest of the world, was brainwashed by the cute, harmless, ladybug. Our first fall in this house, I mentioned to my mom that we were having a LOT of ladybugs on our back patio. To what she replied, "Oh, our neighbors pay $50 for a case of ladybugs every year- they're great for your plants!"

Yeah, they keep the aphids away, I get it, I read The Angry Caterpillar (or which ever one of those books includes ladybugs and aphids!)! Don't let them fool you...
That is not a real ladybug... Real ladybugs do this...

Which leads to this...

(Duggar family portrait 18, 19, 20 kids- who the hell knows, anymore!)
Oh wait, that's when humans do that...

Here's ladybugs...

Oh GROSS! Right?


Ladybugs reproduce like the Duggars on Ecstasy and live right outside my back door! When we take the dog out, they come in and swarm the inside of my house. I try to pick them up and throw them out, but there are tons of them and I'm no match for those little fuckers. And did you know that they stink? And they are dumb, they constantly are banging against the windows and making a clicking sound- screw Haunted Houses, this Halloween, I am having nightmares about Ladybugs!

*** Speaking of Halloween, I am attempting to dress up like a sexy nurse. My new header inspired me- we'll see how that goes, best case scenario, I might look skanky. I will also be dressing up my dog because this is my first Halloween with a dog and I'm a dork! Certainly crappy pictures to follow from our festivities.

*** I just listened to a very funny exchange with my sister on the phone in her car as she pulled up to the McD drive thru window that she had been promising her daughter all day- (you must know...she is VERY cheap...and had been dragging her 4 year old with her all day to thrift stores in search of finishing touches for Halloween costumes)

Sister: you want a cheeseburger?

Niece: yeah.

Sister: Good, cuz chicken nuggets are too damn expensive.

(as she reads the updated menu)

Sister: What??? They are $1.29 now?

Sister: but they advertise the cheeseburger on the dollar menu!!!

McD worker: Yes, ma'am, they are $1.29 now.

Sister: Sorry (insert niece name), we are going home and eating- I will not pay $1.29 for a crappy cheeseburger for you!

My niece is freaking out, my sister is trying to weave out of a drive thru line during the lunch rush! Buck up- the accident you cause is going to put you out a little more than the .29!!!

Mind you, she would have paid $1.00, BUT THAT .29 was just asking too much!!!

A few thoughts, thank God that she didn't order anything because with the way she was complaining over that intercom her cheap skinny ass would have been getting lots o' saliva in her food!!!

Hasn't she heard that there's a recession? Prices are going up sister! Happy Hour Sue is using lint as blankets for Christ's sake!

Yikes! My comment was accidentally deleted by me! Crap what did I do!?!

Anyway, my boys have ladybugs on their bedroom ceiling and refused to sleep in there last night. Freakin bugs.

And I got your boo'ed- and I showed you some SERIOUS linky love...

Tenakim said...

What the fuck, john? How did you get in here? I don't have a problem with erectile dysfunction!

KimandCo said...

John? Just what all of us women need - a husband who's erection lasts for four hours! I already don't get enough sleep.

Annie said...

I know my name is too long. I figured no one would be reading or even find me so who the heck cared at that time? 100 posts later....maybe I shoud rethink it!

I hope you are the hottest skanky nurse out there!

Jennifer said...

Ladybugs reproduce like the Duggars on Ecstasy

OMG, I couldn't read anymore after that, laughing too hard!!

Cheryl said...

lady bugs ..I'll never look at them the same again.

If you think the xray of my knee is gross (did that yesterday) you should see the giant scars...more to come in two weeks. Joy!

Enjoy Halloween...can't wait to see the pics. ;)

HappyHourSue said...

Hey John - why don't you and your limp dick go troll someone else's blog.

Sorry.

Your sister is awesome. That 29 cents could buy a lot of things. 1/5 of a cheeseburger, for one.

Sabrae said...

I am not an over achiever...hmmmm ok ok ok ok ok ok you got me! lol but I have a plan! lol at least get to be a millionaire sometime in my life! lol I'm sick of living paycheck to paycheck! I want things and have to work my butt of to get them! :) lol

BacktoBarnwell said...

We get the ladybugs at Nanny's house too! Millions of them. My parents on the other hand, have never gotten them. So, when I get back, I'm sure I will get to here Nanny complain 30x per day, "Where are they coming in?" And then, they die, and STINK. Happy Halloween!

WayneJohn said...

Ok, you throw up some pictures of you as a sexy nurse (yum) and I'll throw up some pictures of me with drag queens. Fair deal?

(Perhaps I should use a different word grouping, I'm not going to 'throw up' any pictures, I'll post them.)

C said...

Ha! OMG--I think your sister is related to my husband! That's funny. Thanks for the "boo".

~Christy

Dorsey said...

Can't wait to see the pics of your costumes. Hmm, ladybug sex...I might smell a costume idea for NEXT year! HA!!!

And my hubby would be right behind her trying to get OUT of line at McD's...he's constantly bitching about the price of fast food. Suck it up, man...its SOOO comforting! hehehe

Heinous said...

At least you won't have any aphids in the house. Because you were worried about that I'm sure.

Savvy Mode SG said...

okay, i think ladybugs are cute, but i guess if my house is being invaded by an army of lady bugs....

Dawn@Embracing the Ordinary Life said...

Oh Tena...too funny...as for the ladybug..if they are orange, they are NOT ladybugs, they are devils that bite, stink and swarm...Ladybus are nice...the orange critters are so NOT.

Boo to you too...I may not have the energy to post a link back to you now...but give me time...Thanks for thinking of me.

Kally said...

OMG, 2 things that freak me out in one post: bugs and the Duggars! That many offspring is just unreal.

Jenni Jiggety said...

Ladybugs are cute when they are alone but when they bring their friends? They are a nuisance!

Ann said...

HEY!
Boo! To you too!
I'm just hanging out for a VGNO Halloween style tonight. Hubby is taking the girls out and I've got my wine going!
How's the evening so far?

Ann said...

Hey Tena,
I've been wondering if you've met Tattoed Minivan Mom. I keep meaning to direct you to her corner of the blogosphere. I think you'll get a kick out of her!

AND!!!!
Your Dugars stuff,

TattooedMinivanMom said...

That ladybug picture freaked me out!

Not the knockin wings one, the hand swarm one.

TattooedMinivanMom said...

Hey look!

Ann's pluggin me!

That sounded kinda nasty.

What's with all the "John" trash talk?

J'Ollie Primitives said...

which is scarier, the Duggars or the ladybugs?

DJane said...

I must say now that John's comment was deleted I feel so left out. Hard to follow the trash talkin' when you miss the original post.

Hope you had a great Halloween!
Still waiting to send out the free prize.

Tena said...

I will never be able to look at ladybugs again without thinking of this post, lol!
I had a good laugh over the story of your sister and the cheeseburger! LOL

P.S. The monkey's are holding an award for you!

amelia bedelia said...
