Bullets and Drag Queens

Wicked Wednesday everyone! You made it half-way through the week. Give yourselves a pat on the back. Have you annoyed any co-workers yet?

The weather today in Beaver City, Nebraska is a sunny 87 degrees. Hmmmmm... I wonder if the people in that town prefer their beavers to be shaved or unshaved. What?

Traffic on the 405 is bumper to bumper. Waxing is preferred to shaving because you don't want to be stuck in the car during a long commute with razor burn in Beaver City. O_o

In the news, a man was shot in the head and DIDN'T NOTICE UNTIL FIVE YEARS LATER. Apparently he was drunk when he was shot with a .22 caliber gun and didn't feel anything more than a blow to the head, and therefore did not seek medical treatment. Why on earth did he not feel pain the next day when he sobered up? Or did he stay drunk continuously for 5 straight years? He only went to the doctor 5 years later after he noticed a lump in the back of his head.

I think there's a lesson in this. If you find yourself drunk on New Year's Eve and you feel a blow to the head, go to the doctor because you might have just been shot in the head.

In celebrity news, Sean Penn is filming a new movie in Dublin where he plays an aging drag queen rocker. I think his hair and makeup person(s) must not like him very much.

Sean, I don't think red is your color. Next time try something in the brown family.

In the why-won't-they-just-go-away news, Jon Gosselin is writing a book. According to sources, Jon is still trying to decide what the book will be about, but he wants to focus on his parenting skills.

Hmmmm... Something tells me it will be a short book. Perhaps a baby board book. Or maybe Parenting Sextuplets for Dummies by Dummies. He could collaborate with Kate on that one.

Hey, WTF?!

I asked Mr. G if he thought I looked cuter when I work harder and he very wisely said no. That I look just as cute parked in front of my computer as I do cooking a meal. #goodman

And that's all the time I have for you today. Think of something inspiring to do today that will fit in with the Hump Day theme. But first... a message from our sponsors... (not really)

-OMG Facts

Makes you wonder what would've happened if the poor guy had just had Xanax to take that day. #calmdown #itwillbealright #unlessyoudie #thenyouwererightallalong

By the way, any month that starts on a Sunday will have a Friday the 13th. It's true. Look it up.



  1. Do you know the JASON Friday the 13th thing? July August Sept.Oct. Nov. Apparently there is some freaky business going down when you get a year with Friday the 13th on successive months. Like say mass murders in hockey masks.

  2. The highest compliment I can pay you is that your blog is SO much better without Spank. I'm proud of what you're doing here.

    Laura (the artist formerly known as Spank)

  3. Luckily no Jon Gosselin dreams last night (just about a guy from highschool)

    Sean Penn was scary. Majorly scary. Like I may have to dream about him scary.

    I read somewhere about that bullet guy. He said his head hurt the next day but not bad....that's a scary thought. My husband's car got hit with a New Years eve bullet here in Las Vegas. People that do that are idiots...the bullets fall and kill people.

    Laura, when I read your comment I didn't realize it was you that said it at first...I was like...well that is RUDE!. But, it's okay to say it about yourself.


  4. Is it just me, or is Sean Penn looking kinda like Gene Hackman in The Birdcage? #justsayin

  5. He does look alot like Gene Hackman in The Birdcage. I loved that movie! I think the only book Jon will be writing is a coloring book.

  6. I love that Jon Gosselin just wants to write a book...doesn't have any inspiration, doesn't even know why he wants to write it, but he knows he wants to write a book. Turd.

    And, yes I have annoyed a co-worker today...I work at home. Alone. Did I just imply that I annoyed myself at some point? Yes, yes I did.

  7. Laura (AKA The Artist Formerly Known As Spank) Thank you for that amazing compliment. It means a lot. LOL to Ashleigh who thought you were insulting Spank.

    Picksee, you made me snort at the annoying a co-worker thing.

  8. As usual, you make me giggle over my coffee and give me a "highlight" of the day to introduce over the water cooler.

    You rock.


  9. Thank you Mrs. Peppler, you rock too!
