Friday Funnies

Daily Hoop Conversation:
Hoop: Would you still love me if I couldn't control my farts?
Tink: Of course.
Hoop: Would you go out in public with me?
Tink: Um... I guess so.
Hoop: Would you change my diaper?
Tink: What?!
Hoop: Well, you know, if I can't control my farts there are probably other things that I can't control either.
Tink: Are your arms broken in this scenario too?
Hoop: ...
Tink: ...
Hoop: They fell off.

Daily Hoop Conversation 2:
Hoop: Don't you wish they had shrinking machines?
Tink: That might be kind of useful.
Hoop: Then women could shrink all their large keepsakes into smaller ones.
Tink: Like what?
Hoop: Like, um... Wedding dresses. Wouldn't it be great if you could fit yours into a nice little shadow box?
Tink: It would.
Hoop: So, is there any other way you can shrink something like that?
Tink: What, my wedding dress?
Hoop: Yeah.
Tink: NO.
Hoop: You can't, like, wash it a bunch of times?

Have a wonderful weekend Homebloys!

At Midnight I Turn Into A Pumpkin

(A totally pointless title.)

I've been reading J.D. Robb books for the last week. They make me want to kick some bad guy butt. It's a good thing I've been going to the gym; because I'm WEAK. I was doing mountain climbing on the treadmill this afternoon (I'm not quite to Kilimanjaro) and I literally had to talk my legs into finishing. I was like, "Do you want that ice cream float later? Well, do you?!" Apparently, they did. And it was good.

Enough randomosity. Here's Etsy!

Daily Etsy Picks:
Secret Decoder Card With Secret Message
Young Mad Scientist Alphabet Blocks
One Carat Carrot Ring

WTF Etsy?:
"Got Any Weed?" Card (Because that's not sketchy or anything.)
Fetus Puppet
Fuzzy Brown Cattbutt Magnet
Johnny Carcinogen (Dude, I think you should listen to your wife.)
Dollhouse Miniature of Used Chamber Pot

Hoop Quote Of The Day:
"Let me get my glasses so I can see in High-Def."

Weekly Words Challenge 86!

The words for this week were T and "Not What They Seem".

How did you interpret them?

Table Umbrella


Tinkerbell Bell

Not What They Seem

Not really an obscene statue.

I found this up on the wall of a local B&B. Although odd (almost Dr. Seuss-ish), I thought it was probably supposed to be a serene forest scene. Maybe those deer are discussing the weather? Although that blue one looks a little evil. Then I got to the next tile...

Oh. Well I'm sure that's what guests want to think of when they're staying there, an evil blue deer getting caned by a hunter.

Carnival Ride

Pig Racing

Old Bricks

Burned Hair

Hoop got a little too close to the grill.

Darwin Fish

In Other News:
Hoop starts his new job on Tuesday! I'm hoping that means I'll get back on a more routine blogging schedule. The last three months have been off, I know. I won't say I haven't enjoyed them though. The forced vacation was good for me (and Hoop). We got to be honeymooners. But it's time for life to move on. I just hope I can find a decent job soon.

I'm drunk blogging. Why? Because I totally forgot about this Etsy post until now. So forgive me if these Etsy picks suck. It was $1 drafts tonight and after three days of continuous rain, I was getting severe cabin fever. I tried to drunk dial Allison (Alien), but she didn't answer her phone. The boys, Hoop and Bob, are playing Resistance. I just can't get into that game. It's too scary. Instead of shooting aliens, I end up running away like a sissy. So the boys don't want to play with me anymore. Anyway, here are my stupid picks...

Daily Etsy Picks:
Word Key Pendant
Men's Shave Set (For The Guys)
Mod Dots Zipper Tote (For The Girls)

WTF Etsy?:
Leandro the Owl Finger Puppet (In what world is that an owl?)
Zombie Feet Shoes
Original Art of "Toilet Filled With Steamy Poo"
Dollar Bill Art (This dollar bill could be yours for only $3 plus $2 shipping!)
A Piece Of Yourself (This is so weird!)

Weekly Words Challenge 85!

The words for this week were K and Metal.

How did you interpret them?

K for Keys

Old School K

Can you guess what old school package this K is on?

These were both in someone's yard.

In Other News:
Hoop has turned into a computer zombie. He spent nine hours on our computer yesterday. The only time I spend nine hours on a computer is if 1. I am getting paid to or 2. the fate of the world requires it. Either way, I'm not going to be happy about it. When I finally got him off of it, sometime around midnight, he annoyed the bejebus out of me by staging a slow-motion fight with the dog in the office. When I asked him to stop he told me, "The dog started it!" It's been raining for three days straight. I think we might be getting cabin fever. Please send sun.

More tomorrow....

There's Always Room For Etsy!

I'm all over the place right now.

Like Jell-O without the mold.

Which explains how I completely forgot to post Etsy links yesterday. Because frankly, I have no freakin' idea what day it is anymore. I can't say I haven't enjoyed my stay in Unemploymentville (that should have been my Wild World city name!). But I'm ready to get back to work now. Now if I could just find a job that didn't involve working for *peanuts or touching dead people...

*I said this to a friend and she thought I said "penis". I told her, "That too."

Daily Etsy Picks:
Star Trek Vinyl Decal (How can you not laugh?)
Cupcake Stand
Journey Journal
"Explore" Shirt

WTF Etsy?:
Lucy's Potty Pants (When you secretly hate your baby.)
Cherokee Booger Mask
Merkin Hair Panties
Bridal Surgical Mask

Etsy of Note:
Baby Viking Hat (Jay, if you had kids...)

Daily Hoop Conversations:
Tink: Dane Cook is kind of cute. It's a shame he's such a jerk.
Hoop: Well that's an improvement. You used to just hate him.
Tink: Yeah. He grew on me a little.
Hoop: So if I were laying here passed out and he offered you sex, would you do him?
Tink: What? No! Why are you passed out?
Hoop: I don't know.
Tink: Did Dane Cook knock you out?
Hoop: Pfft. Please.
Tink: Did someone poison you?!
Hoop: You're missing the point.

The words for this week were Arch and Purple.

I'll have my pictures up no later than tomorrow morning. I'm still travel lagged and Hoop is forcing me to have a Star Trek marathon. The movie was AWESOME by the way. But don't let that stop you from posting your pictures or checking out the other contestants. I'll be by soon myself. Happy Snapping!

Fat, Happy and Tan

You can quit making beer can towers on my counter. I'm home!

The cruise was awesome.

I got a burn tan, made a friend, laughed my ass off and took lots and lots of pictures. When we left for the ship on Thursday morning I was a little worried. Usually, I can only handle my Grandmother in small doses and chased with something strong and vodka flavored. But this trip wasn't bad. Whenever I felt my eyes rolling up into my head, I just looked over at the ocean and imagined throwing her into it. I keed.

We did a lot of overindulging- eating, sunbathing, sleeping, Nintendo DS playing. Mom bought us each "Animal Crossing" for the trip. The gist of the game is that you play a character (a little you) in a world filled with talking animals. Each game is relatively unique, with different maps and names and characters. Mine has a horse named Elmer in it. I'm still trying to figure out if that's a sick reference to glue or not. ;)

The ports were meh. Atlantis in Nassau was worth the $10 cab ride. But Freeport was just a collection of pretty palm trees and crappy souvenirs. We made the rounds so I could take pictures and then we headed back to the ship to swim. I know the destinations weren't the focus of this trip, but I kind of wish Mom's first cruise had been to somewhere a little more interesting. Then again, interesting to me usually means scooter rides with teenie tiny helmets.

All in all it was a fun trip. Now it's back to real life and the job hunt.


What did I miss in your world?

P.S. Hoop just asked me if "Whale Rider" was fat people porn.

Off Again

I thought I'd have time to post Etsy links. But...

I'm leaving tomorrow for a Mother-Daughter-Granddaughter cruise to the Bahamas! I sure make this unemployment thing look like no fun, don't I? Don't be too jealous. This was planned and paid for a year ago, back when I had labors to enjoy the fruits of. Unfortunately, I'm running behind on my laundry and packing. So no Etsy links this week. If you're feeling froggy, you could always post some of your favorite Etsy links in the comment section below.

Or you could just raid the beer like everyone else.

Be back soon!

Bokeh Heart

(Yard Sale)

Belt Buckle Tree

Antique Razor and Level

The level is from 1895. The razor is from the 1920's.

Avon Aftershave Bottle

Cast Iron

Yom Kippur War Medal
