Freaky Deaky Friday to you all, my gingersnaps. I've got some big news to announce here on this blog. I wasn't going to share it at first but decided since you are all my "family", you guys deserve to know. Mr. Ginger took a job at an NGO in South Africa and so we're moving the whole family there! We're putting our house on the market this week and hope to have the entire G-clan moved there by June. We will be living in a remote area of South Africa with questionable internet access, so I'm afraid this blog can only continue for a few months. But if and when we return to the States, in a few years, I will resurrect Gingersnaps in the Morning. But until then, let's make the most of the time we have here until June! As they say in South Africa, "dit is 'n grap"!
Now on to the news... a British Mechanic has over 240 lifesize "love" dolls (dolls that are made to do the nasty) yet he only has tea with them, takes them for drives, bathes and dresses them and insists to his wife that he never EVER has or ever will have sex with them. And his wife believes him. He claims he has a happy marriage, yet something has me wondering... if indeed he was happy, WHY IN THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS HOLY would he have 240 sex dolls? Can't he just collect something else, like toy trains? Legos?
Katy Perry's new video is interesting. I thought she was Lady Gaga there for a moment. And I'm not digging the Kanye West parts but that might just be because I can't stand the egotistical jerk. But the music is nice. Well... you tell me. What do you think?
Babies, would you like to comment on Katy Perry's new video?
Here's another Passive Aggressive co-worker note of the day. (and a witty response from a co-worker)
And this is EXACTLY why PARENT'S SHOULDN'T TEXT!!!!
Today's WTF moment is brought to you by Britney Spears, who allowed the Jackass guys to put her in a full porta-potty, attached to bungee cords, with nothing but some goggles to protect her.
And that's all the time I have for today. Have a great weekend and why don't you try to learn some Afrikaans with me? I leave you with the this fun fact, and one last thing in Afrikaans... "Alles wat ek gesê oor te skuif na Suid-Afrika was 'n grap.... Onthou watter dag dit vandag is..." Have a great weekend!!!
Male platypuses are poisonous!
The male platypus has a poisonous spur on each of its hind legs. Young females also have the spur, but it is not poisonous and they lose it before adulthood. Venom is normally a trait found in reptiles and amphibians, but a few mammals like shrews, platypuses and solenodons have venom as well. The male platypus’ venom is for mating season fights. It develops most of its venom during spring. It’s also not very strong, so that when the platypuses fight, they don’t actually kill each other.
