Damn GPS!

I ventured out of my little town today. Thanks to my GPS it was more eventful than it was supposed to be.

Ok, I know what you are thinking. That you are about to read some long drawn out story about how I was lost for hours thanks to the GPS. Well, hate to disappoint you. It was only 15 minutes.

But still, I was ticked that A) the silly thing didn’t recognize the frontage road (thinking it was the freeway) and B), it thought I needed to go 5 miles down to flip around when 1 mile would have done the trick.

Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE that my Smartphone has a built-in GPS. I think this is one of the best inventions in years. It is awesome when it works well.

But today… I wanted to smash that woman’s face. You know, the one that tells you “Right turn, in .5 miles”.   Point 5 miles my ass.

Besides, what fool puts their business in the middle of no where and on a frontage road you have to turn into a hotel parking lot and then cross over to their building? What fool, puts their business on a road that if you miss the turn in, you have to go down a mile to attempt pass 2?  I’ll tell ya what fool…The one I had to visit today.  Thank god it was my first and only time.

I still love my damn GPS, but we just aren’t on speaking terms for a few days.

`

I’m still pissed at the bitch…

What Makes You a Kid at Heart?




`

I have a saying I’ve been sharing for years

Act Responsible, Yet Always Remain a Kid at Heart 

`

The way I see it, life is full of grown up things we have to deal with…work, bills, life, medical, kids and various other “responsible” things.

It is very important that you offset the weight of all those heavy burdens by having some “kid at heart” moments in your day.

Some of you share these all the time. Maybe playing a joke on someone, messing with your kids, while at a restaurant coming out of the bathroom with a toilet seat cover necklace (yes, I had a friend do this one).

Whatever it is, it helps you remain young and have the ability to handle anything that is thrown your way. That moment of laughter keeps you feeling young. Yes, my body might be feeling 46 but my mind is still hanging out in its 30s. I will be a 80-year-old woman feeling in my 40s.

I remain a kid at heart by laughing at all the things I find funny at any given moment (and I find a lot funny for various reasons). I’m not afraid to be a kid with kids, yet I know that fine line of them knowing I’m the adult still.

So I’m curious…..

What do you do,

to remain a kid at heart?

`

Please share….Let’s all be a kid at heart on this post…..

Sunday Funnies ~ Edition 6

Sunday Funnies!

Another week of things I found on either Facebook or Google that made me laugh or smile.

`

Perfect for our Non~Normal & Proud of It Club!

`

One for my fellow Sarcastic Buddies

`

Sometimes at the same time

(I love this one – LOL)

`

Don’t cast stones, we all have voices in our head

(mine is reading what I type to me)

`

This is sad and wrong yet funny

`

Would I ever do this??? Nahhhh

(cough cough)

`

For those of you with blog stalkers

LOL

`

Ok, I have to get some work done, I hope everyone enjoys their Sunday and let’s do this again tomorrow!

`

LOL

Spelling Is SOOOO Overrated!

Ok, I’ve been one of the lucky ones. I have yet to be attacked by any of the Vocabulary/Spelling Police.

I’m not saying I never will (knock on wood) but maybe I’m just lucking out due to being so darn funny!

(I barely could say that with a straight face!) 

I’m not saying I’m really bad, but I do mess up. I have lots of excuses, I mean reasons.

`

  • I could blame it on genetics…. that whole apple not falling far from the tree stuff
    • But that would be an easy cop-out and unfair
    • Besides, one of my sisters has already taken that one

`

  • I could blame it on spell check…. God only knows how much I LOVE my red squiggly line! They are so pretty
    • But being that I’m 46, the spell checker can only account for my bad spelling the past 15 – 20 years if I’m lucky
    • But I will say, it sure hasn’t helped it any!

`

  • I could blame it on the dictionary…how many times have we heard this…“Look it up in the dictionary!”
    • I’m still trying to find phone under the “F”s
    • And Psycho under the “S”s
    • I’m just saying……

`

  • I could blame it on how lazy we are as a country
    • I’m pretty sure having 26 letters in the alphabet allows for a gazillion (just saw a red squiggly by the way) …a gazillion combination of letters to create new words
    • Is there a reason we have so many words that sound the same but are spelled differently?
      • Do we really need – there, their, and they’re?
        • Even when offering sympathy we can’t really go, there, their, they’re….

`

  • I could blame it on my Honor’s Classes
    • Yes, I’ll admit it. I was an Honor’s student my whole 18 years.
      • GATE, MGM, HONOR’s, whatever the name was in each district or level, I had them
    • Or as I like to think of it, I was the stupidest smart kid in my class
      • Why? I really hate studying
    • In Honors they taught me how to read. Not spell. Sorry, it’s true.
      • Probably why I hate reading so much as well now that I think about it.

Yes, I could blame it on all of the items above. But the reality is, it probably is a combination of it all. Plus sprinkle in the fact that I am just not fascinated with words and language like some folks. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good Scrabble or Words for Friends game. But my reality is, I read so fast my mind knows what it is Suppose to be reading and not necessarily what was typed or hand written.

I bet most of you do too.

Read this….

Ok, by a show of hands…

How many of your read – A Bird in the Bush?

Now, how many of you read A Bird in the the Bush?

Some of you are still reading the same….I’ll wait for those folks to catch on…..

~~~~

OK, I’m out of time. My point is this….

Sorry I’m not a great speller, but let’s face it, in some cases (not all) spelling might be a little over rated.

Oh yea, and please Spelling Police…..Don’t attack me!  

`

This is a humor blog……I was trying to be funny….

Plus I fixed all my read red squiggly lines!

LOL

I’m Stuffed!

I know how he feels.

 

My nephews (12 and 14) came over tonight and we decided to make some hamburgers. Ok, more like I wanted some homemade hamburgers and bribed my other half to make them.

Now we all sit here stuffed. Tummy aches. Moans and groans.

I’m surprised my one nephew is even alive after the two big creations he scarfed down. This kids eating is worth a post all on its own one day.  LOL.

Let’s just say a lot of slurping, lot of runny gooey junk all over his hands, mouth and any thing else he might come in contact with. Definitely not pretty.

I’ll spare you the graphic details. I can’t burn your eyes…..

But we are stuffed.

Ok, he’s not this bad ~ LOL

Sad part is….I also bought some red velvet cupcakes. I’m pretty sure when the moaning stops, Mr “I Wear My Food” will be asking for cupcakes. The rest of us will moan some more….

Did I mention the kid is 14 and almost 6ft tall?

Good thing we already took showers. He is all clean to wear more food.   LOL

Ok, I have to go moan some more……

What did the teddy bear say when offered dessert?

No thanks. I’m stuffed! 

 

God I love that joke!

Who Gives a Hoot?

The other night, I was attacked…..

~~~

By a 6in high owl! 

Stop Laughing!

~~~

I was meeting my dinner companions at the local buffet at our Casino. It was packed so I had to park in the far end in Tim-Buck-Two.  There is a little walk way you cross from this side parking area to the main parking area.

As I was crossing the little strip I heard this chirping. I look down at my feet and there is a 6  owl staring at me and hooting and chirping. Obviously I’m not the only Human it has seen as it was a brave little sucker.

Doing what any sane person does, I started talking owlish…I said stop laughing.

Hoo u looking at?

We were hooting back and forth for a bit. Me trying to irritate him. (Yep, just like I do people)

Well, I guess he didn’t want to play any more so he spread his wings and took off, right towards me!

He is a jokester too I guess. He swerved right before getting to me and landed a few feet away laughing. Yes laughing. Now I have him laughing at me and you. Hmm.

On the way back later that night, there was an older couple out taking pictures of the owls. They claimed to have counted seven (yes 7!) baby owls.

Now their little home is literally one foot from the road in the cave you see above. So I stroll over to see if I can find my new owl friend and his (or her as I didn’t lift the wing to check) and their brothers and sisters.

Darn, only two….

Two of My New Owl Friends Playing Hide and Seek

I guess the others were out spooking other poor passerby folks. Getting a good laugh at making all us humans speak Hoot.

I was thankful to the guy (or gal) that came up with the idea of sticking a camera in my phone. It’s moments like these that really do make you appreciate this.

Only 10 years ago people would have thought I was just crazy.

Now, they think I’m crazy but I have proof!!

~~~

Have a great day everyone!
