Dan the Man

Happy Birthday Dan!

May Michigan win many, many games this season.*
















*This will be the only time you will EVER see anything about football on my blog.  I hate football.  If you don't believe me, just ask my dad.

Cupcake Party


Good cheer is something more
than faith in the future,
it is gratitude for the past and
joy in the present

My Album Cover...



for when I make a record that is...

and when I learn how to play the guitar
that I have owned for over 15 years.

PS Don't hold your breath.

Too Many Shades of Crazy

Direct quote from a dear friend of mine who recognizes the insanity:

"Last weekend I went to a single's dance and they made us do the hokey pokey....it was a dance just for 31-45 singles....and they turned on the lights and made us do the hokey pokey....Marla, what is wrong with people? Why would that seem like a good idea? I just can't even imagine."



Sometimes, there are just no words.  But we carry on. 

We CARRY ON while laughing at these circumstances that frequently seem to find us.  We compare horror stories like war veterans.  And I dare say that some of us have nearly earned a purple heart.

Discontinued.... Discontinued?!!!

The nerve!

You can't discontinue anything with the Muppets on it!  You wanna know why?  Because an evil black curse will descend upon you and your family for centuries to come.

Hey, I don't make up the rules.  I'm just sayin' ...


PS:  I'm sure glad I don't work at The Daily Mug.

Freaky Friday

Every breath you take
And every move you make
Every bond you break
Every step you take
Ill be watching you

The WildLife Up North...

happened to be conveniently found in our very own cabin. Proof:
Mama Bear. Or perhaps Papa bear? Do bear rugs come anatomically correct? I forgot to look.
Meooowwwww....
Lovely warthog. Or a pig hog. Or a whatever hog. You can google it.
Every time i walked by this thing, the Lion King song would pop into my head.

Luau!
If you're hungry for a hunk of fat and juicy meat
Eat my buddy Pumbaa here because he is a treat
Come on down and dine
On this tasty swine
All you have to do is get in line

Aaaare you achin'(Yup, yup, yup)
Foooor some bacon?(Yup, yup, yup)

You could be a big pig too, UGH!

Or it could be a daddy hog. I tossed his hat up there and it landed so perfectly... to my dad's chagrin. What's the point in being a daughter if you can't harass your dad every once in awhile?


Isaiah was particuarly fascinated with this moose. There were a few of them - one in the kitchen and another one in Emily and Dan's room - where they could look at him all night. I know they really enjoyed that. They are probably pen pals now since we are home from vacation. There's always next year guys!

I made sure to pack this little guy. He was the best thing I brought besides the s'mores.

Late Comer.


Matrix producer peoples:  This is what happens when you make your movies rated R.  I can't see them until years later and then when I finally do, it's on some random cable station where I have to get through a bazillion commercials to find out what happens and then I giggle at inopportune parts of the movie because editors interchange swear words with nouns like air head, fudge and shizzle.  It's really rough on the psyche. 

So how about you just remove all the bad words, the unnecessary gore and the weird topless women and let me watch this in the theater like a normal person.

Many Thanks!
P.S. Neo, I love you. I could look at your beautiful face all. day. long.
