Are You Kidding Me?

After 3 miserable weeks without air conditioning, I received my electric bill.  I foolishly thought that my bill would reflect that.  Well according the graph it did.  It went down.  How then, did my bill double?  What the heck?  So I did what any disgruntled customer would do.  I called them.  First how many freaking buttons do I have to push before I get an actual human being?  And what is the probability that the human I get will be of at least average intelligence.  Let's address the first question, shall we.  I think I had to have pushed 7 or 8 times not including my garden variety of voice answers.  "yes" "no"  "billing dispute"  "CAN I HAVE SOMETHING WITH A PULSE!"  See that is the mistake.  I wasn't specific enough.

I got the dumb arse with the pulse.  The dumb arse who pointed out to me how hot it had been last month.  Well no sh*t Sherlock!  I would never have guessed that without you!  But wait, there was this little peace of …

Dancing with the Stars, Season 11

I am so excited to be doing this again.  I had a lot of fun last season.  It was a lot of work actually.  I have a new appreciation for folks who do reviews!   
Adrina Patridge and Tony Dovolani
First up was Adrina Patridge.  Until she was announced as one of the stars, I had no idea who she was.  She stars on "The Hills."  Am I the only one on the planet who had never heard of this MTV Reality show?  She seems very quiet and also willing to work.  I like it when the celeb is willing to work!  She was a bit unnerved by being first.  I would be too. Their dance was:  The Cha Cha Cha. They were very bold and had Adrina perform solo.  That is a huge move on the first night.  She did a good job.  And whether I know who she is or not, she has some potential. 
Len told Adrina that she danced with confidence and had good technique.  His advice:  Be more fiesty! Bruno ( I {heart} you) called her a beautiful show pony.  His advice:  She needs to hold her shape and be sexier. Carrie Ann …


Lately, I have been dreaming.  Dreaming of new things that I need want.  A new couch comes to mind.  The couch in my family room is slowly dying a miserable death.  It is a reclining couch, and wouldn't you know it, the side that I normally sit on is the side that is breaking.  First, it was the foot rest.  It is permanently up.  And just a few days ago, the seat back went into the semi reclined position and won't sit back up.  Oh if only I could have a new couch.  Or at least a newer one.

Then I look at my kitchen table.  It's a good table, really.  It's the chairs that are getting sad.  And if you are going to replace your chairs, why not go all the way.  And since I am dreaming...I am going to dream big.  How about Bistro Sets?

I love this one!  It is from CSN stores.  It seats 8!  My BIL and his wife have one, and I loved it.  There are actually all kinds of Bistro Sets at CSN to choose from.  Which would you choose if you had the choice?  Would you choose the quai…


Have you ever just needed to sound off?  I mean really let it fly!  #$@%!  Then you need to check out Mimi from Living in France.  She does this wonderful Meme that allows you to tell whomever or whatever to ....well you get the point.  Last Friday, my dear friend Emmy hosted F-Bomb Friday for Mimi so I asked if it was too late to link up cause I had an F-Bomb I needed to drop!  She said it was still up!  Yippee!

First to BLOGGER for NOT saving my original post for this!  What the @#$!  It was a great post!  And here it is 11:15 at night and I have to rewrite it!  Thanks a heap!
To My Bank *cough* USAA*cough*
Last month when I asked if I could make a half payment for that month, you said that was fine.  Thank you.  That helped a lot.  But then one week after that half payment was made, and the day AFTER my husband's surgery you called to ask us when we would be paying the other half!  What the French Toast!?  Are you serious???  We worked it out.  But really don't…
