Well, I finally, finally got the chance to meet Linda Lou of Linda Lou Live From Las Vegas fame. Stand up comic, writer extraordinaire and author of "Bastard Husband, A Love Story" (don't you love that title) and just like she told me, she IS MUCH BETTER LOOKING IN PERSON! In the land of bloggers you often get to meet some pretty amazing people and Linda is one such person. We were originally going to meet a few months ago in Las Vegas but a medical emergency came up and I was unable to make it and I was soooooo disappointed because we've become friends on our blogs and I so wanted to meet her in person. Well, I was not disappointed. You know how you click right away with someone? I just loved her right off the bat. She is funny and smart, and FUNNY and a real GIRL'S girl. We sat at the bar and immediately started yapping like we'd known each other forever. We talked husbands, families, work, the whole gamut. And I love the fact that she's an impatient, pain in the ass ("it's too hot/it's too cold/I don't want to sit there!") kinda gal JUST LIKE ME! We had a really, really nice visit but much too short.

The crazy thing is I DIDN'T TAKE A PICTURE - UGH! I don't know what the hell I was thinking! But, if you jump on over to her blog ("Linda Lou Live From Las Vegas) she posted one. I'm the fat girl with the mud brown hair and she's the cute one with the dimples.

LOVE to all ...

Mrs. Mortensen


  1. Debbie, you're too sweet! Mark my words, we will be life-long friends. I adore you!

    Oh, you forgot to say I look a lot thinner in real life. XOXO

  2. I think you are both wonderful and the fat girl must have been cropped out of the picture!

  3. Debbie
    I have decided to add you to my reading list!
    I am yours forever...

  4. Debbie,
    I'm so glad you had a chance to meet Linda and that you both hit it off. I would love to be at a gathering with you two in the room. I'd have to be wearing Depends, because I'd be peeing in my pants from laughter.

  5. R. JACOB - I love you!!!!! Linda and I actually talked about what a sweetheart you are. Thank you for your devoted readership, really. It means a lot to me.

SO, recently California passed a law wherein we now have to use our own bags every time we go to the market or CVS or Rite-Aid, or wherever.  If you don't take your own bags you have to purchase one for 10 cents.  So if you buy a shitload of groceries, you're now going to have to pay an extra 40 or 50 or 60 cents on top of that .... to help the environment.  HOWEVER, here's the really smart part.  The bags they sell you are made of .... wait for it .... PLASTIC.  you know ... to help the environment.

If you're smart like I am, you've already purchased plenty of bags with handles made out of something (not plastic) but sturdy and reusable.  I have them in my car.  And every time I go to the market or CVS or Rite-Aid I completely forget to take them into the store with me, ergo, I end up purchasing MORE PLASTIC BAGS.  California.  Why people want to come here I have no idea. 

RHOBH ....

Holy Moly Guacamole Batman what the hell happened on RHOBH last night?!  Erika (“Jayne”) Girardi lost her shit!  I mean, she actually SHED TEARS.  Now I gotta say that she is one of my favorite housewives.She’s a straight forward-no bull-shit kinda gal and I like that, but apparently the “panty-gate” situation bothered her much more than she originally let on.  

If you recall, a while back at a housewives get-together with the husbands, Erika showed up sans underwear.  As fate would have it, Dorit’s husband P.K. (what the hell kinda name is that?) was seated in direct view of said bare crotch and stared at it all night long (PERV).  If that were my husband his pee-pee would have been severed, filleted and roasting on the patio BBQ.  But I digress.  
So this became THEE topic of conversation ALL SEASON.  Well, in order to bring a peace offering of sorts and little levity to the situation, a few weeks later Dorit purchased a pair of sexy, lacy panties for Erika and told her t…
