Good Reads, Phrases Translated, BS Intervention and Questions!

Good Morning, All! For some reason, my interior clock has been going off at 5 am, no matter how late I’ve gone to bed. It’s my theory that our “interiors” change every seven years – guess this is one of those. But I digress…..


  • Don’t Let’s Go to the Dogs Tonight by Alexandra Fuller (read this one first)
  • Cocktail Hour Under the Tree of Forgetfulness by Alexandra Fuller
  • Stupid and Contagious by Caprice Crane
  • Be The Miracle by Regina Brett
  • Duty Free by Moni Mohsin – hilarious


  • I wish I could play the piano like Gavin DeGraw does in his song, “Not Over You”. Beautiful. Even for people like me who are not even in that place (missing an ex), it still is mighty fine. Would also like to play the guitar like Jimi Hendrix beginning with “All Along the Watchtower”.

Not Watching  – one of my jobs allows me to work from home which allows me to watch tv and/or dance while I work. Am giving up tv because of these shows:

    • Extreme Cheapskates – watched this once time for 15 minutes; REPULSIVE and two of my former relationship men DID some of this stuff – told you I was a bad picker. Ewwwwwwwwwwwww.
    • Dance Moms – some of the stage moms on this show make any and all Housewives of Who Cares look like church ladies. Instructor Abby Lee Miller scares me more than Ron Paul + Nick Sabin + Rick Perry but she does get results out of her child dancers. One mother, the embodiment of self-control and a perfect role model, aimed her mouth at Abby Lee screamed “Whore” several times, in front of the children. I mean, her daughter didn’t get the part Momma thought she should. NOTHING. RIGHT. ABOUT. THIS.
  • Downton Abbey on PBS – Amazing period piece with costumes I am drooling over. Plus, these people behave properly.

Translations English to English

  • cool kicks – nice shoes
  • throwing bo’s – place is so crowded, elbows needed to make way through

BS Intervention and Man Stuff

  • Help, SOS maybe – ok, this is where your input is requested; do know that if you say something I don’t like, you will have 17 years of … something. I THINK I NEED A BS INTERVENTION. Specifically when speaking with Possible Possibility Guy. Back story: have been running into him for years but paid no attention for whatever reason. Plus, when he saw my youngest daughter, he was rendered fairly speechless and he is too old for her. It has been recorded here time and again, I am a geriatric magnet. I am not a geriatric nor am I interested in men older than my dad. Possible is about my age, has hair, and is one cool customer. When I talk to him, my bs reeks. The most inane information flies out of my mouth, truly horrifying. This is uncommon. Maybe it’s the seven-year change thing. If I don’t get my bs in line, I will be forced into a world where I’m pushing wheelchairs, cleaning dentures, and changing catheters with a mortal beloved (short-term, of course). Help. Why does this happen?
  • While walking my dog last night, I noticed one of my neighbors (he is my eldest daughter’s age) emptying his saucepan in the bushes outside his front door. Good grief – someone needs to tell him about disposals, non? His neighbor, an elderly man, puts peanuts out for the squirrels. The white styrofoam kind. Lots of dead squirrels.

ENOUGH! Must go back to creating big pink spheres for event. Am getting real $ for this. Something new and different.

If you have ideas about good bs with Possibility, do share – keep in mind, I have delete button.

Be happy. Or fake it. Or not. Your choice.
Over and out. Later.

  1. I am obsessed with Downton Abbey. Will check out those books on your list. I’m confused about the guy. He’s your age? What’s the geriatric thing about? What’s the BS about? Is this one guy or two? I need a playbook. I’m fading fast. And someone needs to dump a saucepan on that guy’s head.

  2. You always have the craziest stories to tell… And uh, guy sounds creepy. sorry. 😦 Those books you are reading sounds fab. I am going to check out at least two. Thanks and take care! Are those pink balls for the ceiling or something?

  3. I haven’t watched tv in over two weeks and I haven’t missed it at all. I’ve never gotten into those reality-tv shows, though. Most of them make me want to not live on this planet anymore.

    No advice about your b.s. problem. Probably because I suffer from this on a daily basis when talking to anyone. 🙂

  4. OMG … great stuff … and congratulations on being the first person I have ever heard describe themselves as a “geriatric magnet”.

    Most fav line – “scares me more than Ron Paul + Nick Sabin + Rick Perry”

  5. I’ve hearing so much about Downtown Abbey I just can’t bring myself to watch anything English lately. I just can’t. Maybe some day. I have also felt like I attract older men instead of men my own age and I have no idea why. And I have no advice on Mr. Possibility. If no one is making a move and you keep bumping into each other maybe there is a reason for you holding back. Just cause you keep seeing someone doesn’t mean a romance is the reason. Perhaps I’m overly cynical lately though. LOVE YOU!

    • Hey Livvy – when you can watch Downton, you must. Am designing dress based on one I saw on there; re: older men – you know, that’s about 59-60 to me, date/wise; my parents are in the next decade and can’t even go there. Have been hit on by everything from 27 (ewwwww) to 86(ewwwww). You aren’t overly cynical, you are going through the stuff instead of not dealing. GOOD FOR YOU. And I like your point of view – already decided Mr. Possibility isn’t and have made myself scarce. Love you more!
