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.

An Ode to Viggo
Who knows where or when my love for you began it took me by surprise and filled up my whole life
Some laughed and called me mad but I knew that was sad for love cannot be mocked and Viggo, my world rocked
I've seen his every film, his songs, his poems and still I love him more each day and that's how it will stay  for in my dreams he lives
Each step through ether's door we meet forever more and so shall it remain until my life should wane

Danny has this disgusting habit of brushing his teeth and then rinsing his toothbrush and leaving it ALL WET in the toothbrush thing.  (See photo below.  A roll of toilet paper he sets on the counter like a cup and then sticks his toothbrush in the middle of it) ... what a genius huh?

The point?  Adisgusting, wet toothbrush will collect bacteria and mosquitoes and it's disgusting and filthy.  It drives me crazy.  Does he stop?  NO.  

What you're supposed to do is brush, rinse with HOT water and then DRY THE BRUSH THOROUGHLY ... THEN put it in the toothbrush thing.  IT'S NOT THAT HARD.

And how hard is it to take the yogurt OUT of the plastic bag?

God forbid he break a sweat. 

 Also, he never EVER closes a drawer, a cabinet, or a door ... EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Don't you HATE when your husband makes hamburgers ...

*sigh* ... my life.


Well, for some unknown reason I was unable to get E! Live on the Red Carpet!  I called the cable company, I unplugged the t.v. to reboot it ... NOTHING.  SO, I had to go with Channel 7's coverage which is NOT NEARLY AS IN DEPTH as E!  Needless to say Mama was pissed. 

So, with that in mind ... let's get started!

Alicia Vikander.  Beautiful!  She looks very young and sweet and elegant.  Love the color of this gown .... Grade:  A

Jennifer Lawrence.  BEAUTIFUL!  Love the hair, love the make up, love the the gown.  WINNER WINNER WINNER!!!  Grade:  A++

Brie Larson.  I'm not really feeling this gown.  The color is beautiful but the belt and the bling and the ruffles and the pleats ... there's a lot going on here.  Grade:  C

Nice guy Dave Grohl and wife.  Class Couple!  Love her dress and earrings ... very pretty. Dave .... it's the ACADEMY AWARDS .... a traditional tux would have worked much better and you would have looked SO HANDSOME.  Wife Grade:  A, Dave's Grade:…
