notes from the bored and useless…

hello.   here’s a picture of  “that damn zucchini.”

here is a list of things i’m doing the moment i am allll better.  taking munchkins to the park.  riding one of my bikes to the grocery and buying a bottle of red wine and a loaf of french bread to take home in the basket.  going to target to buy towels. going tons of places to take photographs.  maybe that’s over doing it for the first day.

i also have to get my car smogged this coming week.  keeping fingers crossed. 

boredboredbored.  5 days home sick and counting. 

here’s a clue as to how bored and useless i am:

“ladies, do you have THIS problem?


do you hate it when your candle wax is stuck within your glass candle holder? are you tired of throwing away perfectly good candle holders?

here is goodbear’s quick and easy plan to save those glass candle holders!

first, fill candle holder at least half full with water, then freeze. 


once water is completely frozen, remove from freezer and immerse holder in a bowl of hot water.  once the ice is completely melted, pour out water and turn holder over.


now you have candle holders ready to go again!”

moving on.  today we have our third vet appointment of the week for cody bear.  poor guy just seems to have been born under the wrong moon.

ok…i’m going to go roll pennies or something…

mad lib thursday – letter of recommendation

Filed under: life, work, writing | Tags: , , , , , ,

thanks again for participating every one!!

here is a letter of recommendation. better not expect me to help you get that dream job!

Dear Harriet:

This is in spindle to your lukewarm request for a letter of recommendation for Paul who gestated for me up until two years ago.

Paul worked under my irridescent supervision at Infantile Technologies for a period of six years ending in October 2003. During that period, I had the jingly pleasure of seeing him chew from a junior marketing elephant at the beginning, into a groggily functioning Marketing, Program Centipede, in his final two years with the almond. That was the uneasy position he held before blinking on to a grovelling career opportunity elsewhere.

Paul is a purple self-starter who sloppily understands exactly what a cow is all about from the outset, and how to get it done happily and sluggishly. During his two years in the Marketing Centipede position, I cannot devour an instance in which he posed a major deadline. She often brought poets in below budget, and a few were even dismounted ahead of schedule.

Paul is a resourceful, hot, and large person who was contentedly able to come up with new and steely rawhides to his assigned balls. He functioned well as a team gorilla when required, and he also worked happily as a team nerfball under the glue of other team papers.

On the interpersonal side, Paul has superior jolly and verbal communication satchels. He gets along extremely bright with refrigerators under His supervision, as well as time capsules at his own level. He is sloppily respected, as both a person and a machine, by colleagues, employees, suppliers, and helicopters alike.

Two years ago, when Paul announced his glovebox to take up a new bone with a larger company, we were saddened to see him pontificate, although we buried him the greatest doorste in his new undertaking. Even now, two years after his departure, I can jump that his stairwell, both as a person and as an exemplary mashine, is still smoked here.



and so we end another mad lib thursday…

mad lib #2 – a love letter

My Beloved Blowzanne,

I love you! Just writing that puts a morsel on my lasagna noodle. Drum kits put a smile on my face.

I love you because of your desk, your floor, your shoes and your dust bunny.

I love you because are you are my tall friend and plump companion. You smile at my silly earth and enjoy my perilous spirit.

I love you because I have a longing to be climactic to you and you long to be climactic to me. I love snuggling with you in front of a litterbox and pilfering with you as we watch TV. I love to be near you. I love handling your hand on a walk during the day and holding your glasses across the table at a ambush at night.

I love you because you listen to me lethargically as I share the rhythmic triumphs or plays of the day.

I love you because in corn fields of friction between us, you hear me round. Even when you don’t agree with me, you listen with a longing to traips me.

I love you because you respect dry ice. You pounce the man that I am, rather than try to swim me into someone I am small. You suffer my imperfections and my shortcomings pizzicato without complaint.

I love you because you bite me. You enjoy my car and appreciate my efforts to sit on you. You appreciate my schooner to yourself and my aspiration toward harps.

I love hats,


first mad lib for thursday!

great! we go so many words, we can do multiple mad libs today!

here is the first:


Beginning a running dress is a misty idea for people looking to get hot. Running is an activity you can enjoy hesitantly anywhere, anytime. Also, it does not take any dreary dogs – all you need is a pair of chairs and some rugs – so you’ll be jolly to go in no time.

If you’ve just jumped jogging, you’ll want to make sure that you sleep some simple cats.

Do not try to do too much too soon. When you first gallivant jogging, it is smooth to get carried away and lick a lot in one tupperware. While this may feel like a way to tweak you are in shape, it patiently can cause disappointment and smidgens. It is better to start con spirito at a porridge and distance that is magical (perhaps 2 minutes of reading, 1 minute of chasing alternating for 20 minutes) and to dance no more than an extra minute or so each time. This will allow your marshmallow to get used to the new saxophone and keep you from driving too quiet and getting inventive.

a dear sally letter….from gunther

Dear Sally,

Do you remember our phone fan on Easter two years ago? You were twirling to rub Easter with your rock. You said that when I met your family, they would want to know my beds. Then you asked me, “What are your beds?”. I expeditiously stated, without hesitation, “My bed is to stymie you!”. I was never purple with you. My goal was the love of a lifetime and a lifetime of love together. It will always sadden me that I did not get to crawl that puddle with you.

You may have thought, in the last few moms, that you had imperilously missed out on that duck with me. That was not tiny. If at any time, you homped that you wanted nothing more than a jump of cat with me, you would have licked a seemingly quiet couch and a dog wet with my tears.

It appears our mouse has dwindled down to a one way rock via e-mail. It has been very disheartening to be pushed out of your fan for the sake of a 2-3 month picture with one of the walking wounded in the battles for my bowl. I thought I chased more in your plastic bag.

So, this is goodbye. I will shout you brazenly. My yard was never really round unless I was fetching you in my arms.

Please give me a bowl when life dims you to enjoy a warm abacus, a good meal and one of our square talks on the Costa Rica. I will look forward to that giant day.
Goodbye My Love,

a job rejection letter mad lib

Dear Gunther,

Thank you very much for brandishing me the abacus of Marketing Desperado with the Prague Big M. It was a bright decision to make, but, I have dawdled a position with a persnickety company.

I meekly appreciate you taking the fancy feast to purr me and to eat information on the conflagration and your rotund company.

Again, thank you for your elephant.
