There Are No Stupid Questions...

Just stupid conversations.

Not Far From The Tree:
Tink: You know what I hate?
Mom: What?
Tink: Commercials that portray women giggling over make-up. Who does that? I have NEVER giggled over make-up.
Mom: I giggle over make-up all the time. Is this wrong?
Tink: It is. You should definitely stop.

Around The Water Cooler:
Coworker: I just got attacked by a Blue Jay!
Tink: Maybe you were by its nest.
Coworker: Maybe. It dove at me when I went to the mailbox. Then it sat on the ground going, "Grrrrr."
Tink: Oh yeah? It was growling at you?
Coworker: Well... You know what I mean. It was acting like it wanted to growl at me.

Not Far From The Tree 2:
Mom: Want to go see a movie tomorrow?
Tink: Sure!
Mom: What's playing?
Tink: Um... "Leatherheads" is playing at 11:30 and "Smart People" is playing at 11:45.
Mom: What's "Smart People"? Wait. Is that a stupid question?

P.S.
Twisted (Tink) has been updated with a new chapter, "The Sacrifice." Comments, suggestions, and critiques greatly appreciated! No seriously. I'm giving you permission to be brutal. Just no tomato throwing, OK? I'd hate to have to clean the blog again.

Have a fantastic weekend homebloys!

"Oh yeah? It was growling at you?" I can hear the tone in your voice. Perfect.
Why do they giggle over makeup? They are always really giddy about it. Hmm..

Blue Jays are very temperamental. They don't take any crap off anyone and they'll attack without warning. Then they like to taunt you. "What are you gonna do? Huh?? I'm a bird! I'll fly away! Come on wingless freaks! Bring it!"

Yeah, uh ... something like that.

You're precious! As sarcastic as I'd ever hope to be!

Better they be with someone giggling over makeup than be alone and giggling.

Jays are kind of mean and very territorial.

Uh oh, I giggle when I am alone....and I only giggle over make-up when I mess around with some of the more outrageous colors at the Mac store. I SO don't have a face for electric blue mixed with neon green. Sigh........

Yes, there are stupid questions. I should know; I have teenagers.

Growling Blue Jays... what is the world coming to? ;)

I love those snippets of conversation you do.

Just look at what you get to look forward to...

I can't wait for your conversations with Hink (the offspring of Hoop and Tink, in case you were wondering).

Can I come work with you? I never have converations like that at work.

much as I like George Clooney and football, 'Leatherheads' isn't supposed to be all that good but 'Smart people' sounds pretty good

Damn those growling Blue Jays. My husband was attacke by one once when he was about 12, playing baseball and just standing there all innocent-like. He's got a big dent in his head. Swears it was the Jay!

Blue Jays are mean. I used to have a cat who when she walked from the house to the barn would get dive bombed from two jays that nested in our tree. They would hit her on the top of the head even!

Need to go put my lip gloss on and giggle now.

Those blue jays can be nasty. I have seen one attack. Not pretty.

Blue Jays are mental!!! they attack my dogs all the time

oh those growling blue jays, they are scary.

Please shoot me if I ever giggle over make-up. Although, I am going to ask my mom about it and can pretty much guarantee her answer.

I don't giggle about make-up anymore. I take it too seriously. Havin' to paint away the crows feet and stuff.

And, we have mockingbirds at the old place. One likes to hang out on the fence at the dog run and then swoop in for the peck at one of our dogs.

The bird's a big tease...hasn't happend in awhile though. I'm thinkin' Dulce got the best of him one time ;)

I like your mom, even if she does giggle over make-up! I'm with you, though, I have NEVER giggled over make-up - and hair products often reduce me to tears...but her "oh wait, was that a stupid question" cracked me up...

I giggle over makeup all the time! I can't believe that you don't! ;-)

Jays are cranky bastards. Except for the kind that wear viking helmets :P

I've laughed & cried over bad make-up. Like when those counter ladies ambush a friend & make her up to look like a 70's ho...that's funny...but when they do it to you--okay, that's funny too.

 
At 21 April, 2008, Blogger Christy said...

I have heard Blue Jays are mean. The bully of birds. Bastards.

 
At 21 April, 2008, Blogger Alice said...

i don't THINK i've giggled over makeup. unless i accidentally used too much and ended up looking like a drag queen..

LOVE the growling blue jay :-)

the thing that confused me most about "smart people" was that in the preview it had one dude saying to the other dude "you should talk to that pretty doctor lady" and i couldnt figure out who he was talking about. i mean, i saw that sarah jessica parker was in the movie, but her face looks like a shoe, so i KNEW they werent talking about her...
