A RANT AND AN R.I.P.

Snooki is pregnant. People this stupid should not be allowed to procreate.

Awwww ... Davey Jones passed away today. Only 66 years old. I LOVED THE MONKEES! When my cousins and I were little kids we lived on the same block and every Monday night we would put on our pajamas and gather at Tia Martha's house because she had a color TV and we would watch the Monkee's in color. Color TV was a big deal back in the 1960's (all you ridiculous little brats who have Tivo and computer games and cable with 479 channels).

Going to Tia Martha's to watch the Monkee's was a real special treat. All us cousins would get all excited to not only watch the program but to just be together, all of us laughing and truly enjoying that half hour of TV. IT WAS THE BEST! So Davey Jones, THANK YOU. Thank you for all the wonderful memories and all the great music.

RIP Davey.

  1. I was so jealous of Marcia Brady when Davy Jones came to her school & kissed her cheek. May God comfort his loved ones. R.I.P. Davey Jones.

  2. For so many of us, Davey's death represents our youth, and the loss of it....our childhood good places and escapes. It was such a shock to hear about Davey. He was so sweet and lovable. Every one of us "at a certain age" can remember how we loved the Monkees. I lined up in a 3-mile long lineup, for hours in the Canadian cold, to see the Monkees--my very first rock concert. We screamed our lungs out and loved it. Sleepy Jean loves you, Davey.

  3. Use to love the Monkees too. At first I thought them just a Saturday morning sitcom, and never took them serious. But every once in a while they would come with some songs that were really good. I sometimes think their choice to do the TV show cursed them to remain in the wilderness of "don't take us serious" land.

YET ANOTHER ADVENTURE ... YES, IN DANNYLAND ...

So, after my husband told me that I was mean to him I decided to make him his favorite dinner.  Roasted chicken, Stove Top stuffing and corn.  Hearty comfort food.  As you all know, our rule is -- whoever cooks, the other does the dishes.  

After enjoying our meal, and good night of TV, we headed upstairs to bed, BUT ... Danny remained downstairs, went into the kitchen and started doing the dishes!  As I relaxed in bed and heard him clanging the dishes as he did them I almost felt bad for him and contemplated telling him to forget the dishes ... do them tomorrow.  But I didn't.  I felt I had to stick to my guns.  

That morning, Danny was planning to spend the day with a friend at a racquetball tournament.  I was still sleeping as he kissed me good-bye.  I told him to have a good time and thanked him for doing the dishes last night.

When I woke up, THIS is what I found in my sink.  

I only wished I'd taken the picture before all the suds went away.  THIS is how Danny does dishes.  …

DANNYLAND ...

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.

HAPPY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!

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
