More Meme Monday

Okay, so apparently I just totally lied about not making this a  series.    Well, now that all your unreal expectations of perfection of me are dashed-  we can get down to business and have some fun!    (Besides, with all these memes just sitting around, why would I even want to WRITE a post??    These puppies do all the work for me!!)

Drat it! The very first one I tried to upload came as a picture, not a GIF.    It was so funny!!      Sure hope I can go find it!

 

Next!!

swap croutons for m&ms

Oh yes! You got that right!! Make sure you include lots of purple ones!!

 

say welcome really loud when people don't say thanks

Oh yeah! I guess you could say I’m a “Manners Nazi”!!!!

 

That was one of the completely satisfying parts seconds of my day as a Kg teacher!

Monday sharpening its claws

I’ve ALWAYS said that!! Finally people are listening!!

 

 

 

Yada yada yada  (Do I credit you here, Donna??  Or do I just send a million bucks to Jerry Seinfield??)

I don’t have one with yada in it, just wanted to say that.  It’s fun!!

Feeling Fabulous at Fifty!

Judy is hilarious!! And my 55 is even better!!

Edwina's Episodes

Fabulous

Today is the day I turn fifty

And I am not going to get all depressed

There are plenty of things to look forward to

And these are the ones I like best!

You are handy to have in a pub quiz

You know all the old movies and songs

Your trivia knowledge is awesome

Because you’ve been around for so long!

You are allowed to be quite eccentric

Nobody minds if you’re odd

They just think you are a bit quirky

Or perhaps just a silly old sod!

You don’t have to always look glamorous

Because nobody looks anymore

You don’t have to spend hours getting ready

Before you can step out the door.

So although I’ve reach that half century

I’ve see no need to be sad

For I still feel life is for living

And there’s lots more fun to be had!

Melinda’s M*riju*n*

Michelle, Sis, came to eat lunch with me last Wed.  While she was in the bathroom, washing her hands, she hollered called, “Hey!   Why do you have a m*riju*n* leaf in here??”    I yelled “WHAT???” as I ran walked semi-quickly in there.   She pointed to this:

Melinda's m*riju*n* leaf

Wow! Really?

She said, “Seaweed is all flowy, and curved on this curtain.   Do ya see any pointy leaves??”

OH NO!!!    I never gave it a thought, that it looked like m*riju*n*!!    I do remember looking at it and thinking, “Huh.   That’s weird, only 1 leaf, and all the rest fish.”

There it is, big as life!

 

 

Now I GOTTA go get a new shower curtain!!   NO more delays!!   I can’t have people thinking Melinda approves of illegal stuff!     (Do you think it was a secret code??   Ya know, like those black lantern boys in people’s yards were a secret code for “This house is a stop on the Underground Railroad.” ???)     Whatever, time to get it gone!!!!     One shower curtain and hooks purge coming up!!

Shower Show

Just reread one of Nony’s old posts that you’re supposed to hang your shower curtain to dry- in the shower.

WHAT??? You’re supposed to wash those things???   That’s a new one on me!

My MO usually is to ignore the mildew and black mold, until it has crept ALL the way up the curtain, and I get contact dermatitis from brushing into it.  

mildew on shower curtain

In my defense: I inherited this shower curtain. Oh wait- that makes it worse, doesn’t it???

Just like those those dratted 2 year old dishes of mine.

 

 

sigh

 

 

I’m not made outta money, ya know!   I can’t afford to replace that thing every month!   (Even tho I totally buy them at the dollar store!)

But washing it, and hanging it back up to dry- huh.   Who woulda thunk??

(Even though, I’m pretty sure this is what Mama did, now that I stop and think about it, because when I lived at home, our shower curtain was never dirty.   (Or any other space in our house!!   Mama was a real live Cleanie!!!)  (And I was allergic.  Not to her, just to being a Cleanie.)

So, will have to ponder on this some more…..  until the mildew  has turned into a living entity, and strangled me in the shower, probably….    When that happens, that’ll show me!     I shoulda listened to Nony and Mama!!

 

Twin Twist

My friend Kristen C, yes, the cleanie!  made a huge announcement on her blog last Thurs.   She’s pregnant!!   I am so happy for her and Jerrod!   and wait for it…… they’re having twins!!

 

I knew those 2 crazy-in-love kids before they WERE even Kristen & Jerrod!!    When they announced their engagement, I was in shock!    What???    How did this happen??     They didn’t even hold hands in church.    He didn’t even put his arm around her!!    How was I supposed to know they were serious???

But they have so much in common, and are so cute together!!     After they got married, I started praying for them to have a baby.    When Kristen shared their infertility struggles, that gave me the information of how to pray specifically for them.   

And now, their dreams of a baby are coming true, twice as nice!!    God answered our prayers in a huge way!!

Watching this journey thru her pregnancy, and then the babies growing is gonna be so much fun!!

Yikes!    I just thought of something- 2 more quilts needed!!     Relax!!!     I’ll be all done with my present queue by the end of May, and the twins aren’t due until end of August!     I got this covered!

(Not their quilt, just a previous one I made.)

 

Ya know what??    If I was really smart, I’d make the baby quilts, just as soon as they tell people which one the babies are, the pinks or the blues.    Oops, I mean the pinks or the boys.    Oops, I mean, the girls or the boys!    The twins are identical, so how fun is that gonna be to dress them just alike!!!     gets lost in a baby clothes buying daydream for days……….

meme monday

I’ve been collecting these memes from Facebook for a while.

Now, I just gotta share!!

Hacked Hair Horror

I told ya!   When I went with Mama, to the free lunch for homeless, and low income people, the first thing Miss Betty asked me was,  “Oh honey!   Are you having chemo??”     With an implied, Bless your heart.

4 steps away from her, Pastor Julio reached out to me.   “Oh no!   your Mama din’t tell me you had cancer!   I’ll pray for you!”

Then the red-headed Miss Betty came ALL the way across the room to scold me.    “Why’d you do that to your HAIR??”    At least she didn’t ask if I had cancer!

eyes rolled back in head

    Oh brother!

 

 

Since I knew it was gonna happen, I wanted to have some sarcastic zingers all ready to go.    But, how can you be sarcastic to precious ladies who are really concerned about you????   Ya can’t.    So, I just told them the truth.     “It was so long, it bothered me!”   Leaving out the “I-had-a-wild-hair-and-now-it’s-gone” part.
