Birth and Resurrection

Fantastic Friday to you all, my little gingersnaps! Why is today fantastic? Why, today is my birthday. Yes, yes, it's true. It's actually my 30th birthday. (for the 7th year in a row) What do I have planned today? Well, Mr. Ginger is working and... I've got to homeschool my 3 kids before getting the kids to Kung Fu while I sit in the waiting area for 2 and 1/2 hours. Some might find that a terribly depressing birthday (and you would probably be right) but I plan to dress up, put on some sparkly eye liner, eat whatever the H...E...Double Hockey Sticks I want for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Which means I will have a date with a pack of Little Debbie Swiss Cake Rolls sometime during the day, and maybe even more than once. Not a single protein bar will touch my lips on this day. Oh yeah, it's gonna be wild and crazy folks.

Also, a bunch of those nasty natural products I ordered arrived, so I can start reviewing them for the upcoming product review blog I will be co-authoring. Hopefully when I do my reviews, I can be as captivating as this woman.

Ladies and gentlemen, this is very sad news to report, that I should not find humorous at all. Gordon Ramsay's dwarf porn star double somehow was eaten by badgers and later found in a badger den.

I will not laugh at any aspect of this, at least publicly on my blog, because then you will all know what a shriveled old raisin of a heart barely beats inside my chest.

And now, for today's FAIL. Though I think this is kind of a win. This man got a jury summons to appear at his very own murder trial.

I love Snape. You know who really, really, REALLY loves Snape? The artist formerly known as Spank. I wonder how she'd respond to today's WIN. Let me go ask her....

"I can teach you how to bottle excuses for the cops, brew gas, even stopper death of your engine — if you aren't as big a bunch of dunderheads as I usually have to teach how to drive."

But what I really want to know is can he tell me when the Dark Lord (i.e., cops) are tailing me?

YES!!! Spank is alive!!! No more of having to say "The Artist Formerly Known As Spank". My birthday wish has come true, people! I never lost faith, and I hope you haven't either. As we all know, death cannot stop heroes... or was it true love? Never mind, I'm just happy she made an appearance, and hope she will visit us again soon. (you may remember that "Gingersnaps in the Morning" was originally the "The Spank and Ginger Show") And while she was unable to continue blogging with me, her spirit never left me as I continued on solo. Maybe she'll be like Barbara Walters on "The View". You never know when she will show up. *wiggles eyebrows*

Hey, WTF??!! How long do you think that suspension is gonna hold up?

And that's all the time I have for today. I've got a serious date with a box of Little Debbie Swiss Cake Rolls. And since today's my birthday, that means calories don't count. That goes for you too. Eat your little hearts out!! *throws confetti* Have a razzle dazzle weekend, and I'll see you back on Monday.

The famous Athenian lawgiver Draco was smothered to death by gifts thrown at him.

Not this guy

In the 7th century B.C. Draco was visiting the island of Aegina to be honored in front of a large crowd in the Aeginetan theatre. Back then it was customary to honor people by throwing their clothes at them. Draco was covered in so many caps and cloaks that he suffocated and died. The implication of this story is that Draco was literally “killed by kindness”. However, some scholars have a different interpretation.

Draco was famous for coming up with the first written constitution in Athens. His laws were well-known in history as being incredibly harsh. To this day we refer to harsh laws as “draconian”. With that kind of legacy, it’s a small wonder why people would want to kill him. Combine that with the fact that Aegina was a rival city-state to Draco’s home of Athens, and there’s good reason to suggest more sinister motives behind the Draco’s gruesome death by smothering.

An account of the official story.



  1. *waits for the flowers to be thrown at my feet, grinning wildly* What a special day to come out of hiding! I am so glad you were born, and I was reborn... It's like we're twins only not in a Danny Devito/Arnold Schwarzenegger way. More like those really hot twins in the commercials for the unmentionables. I guess we could be the Olson Twins except that I don't want either of us to look like bag-ladies who never eat. Speaking of eating... Can I have one of those Little Debbie Swiss Cake Rolls? *pouts huge* <3 Spank

  2. Merry Born Day Ginger. In honor of your birthday, I had a slice of Subway veggie pizza and a hot chocolate for breakfast. Enjoy your day and have a wonderful weekend!!!

  3. Ginger, in honor of your birthday (and my 29th gestational week!) I had CAKE for breakfast. But not just any cake, oh no. Chocolate cake with cream cheese frosting! Yum!

    Also, I lovelovelove the Snape GPS!!!!!

    And I'm really, really looking forward to your "natural products" reviews. I think you should review the Moon Cup and Keepers:

    Actually, no. Because while I am fascinated, I am also disgusted. But still so curious. But also grossed out.

  4. Alan. Rickman. GPS?

    The thought alone makes me tingly and renders my clutch foot immobile.

  5. Happiest and hippiest of berfdays to you!! I love Alan Rickman's voice, even as Snape. He could read the ingredients on a bag of dog food to me and it would be amazing.

  6. OMG THE SPANK! I'm starstruck.

    So saw your tweet about her being on here and immediately came over...I knew you wrote the first part and I thought, "oh there is a video, that must be spank.." OMG I was very frightened for a couple of seconds....I thought, "spank looks much better in pictures than in video..."

    Sorry Spank...I'm sorry I ever confused you with the Dannon Yogurt woman...

  7. LMFAO! OMG! Jamie! You just made me snort so loud! <3
