this post brought to you from Big Time-Wasters, Inc.

  • It has rained and thundered and lightninged and rained again. The kids are squirrellier than a pack of rabid monkeys. Tomorrow I'm taking them to the beach. As long as it isn't storming, what do they care if they get wet?
  • Eating too many salt-and-vinegar potato chips pickles your mouth. Weeally.
  • McCain and Obama are even in the polls? wrings hands What's next?
  • The beheading is taking up a lot of space in the news. So many unanswered questions.
  • R took a bath tonight with her babies. They both are the kind that drink and wet, so they end up full of water. The best way to get the water out is to yank the dolls arms and legs up in the air and get as much water out of the 'pee hole' as you can. Right now there are two dolls in that position wedged among the faucets, staring out blankly as they do yoga. I did take a picture but the more I look at it the less I want to post it.... Anyway, I'll know when B gets home tomorrow because I'll hear the Jesus Christ! coming out of the bathroom when he goes in to have a shower.
  • Also, in the 'Where The Hell Is My Head' category, I bought the second crop of plastic water bottles today. Why the WTHIMH designation? This second group, JUST LIKE the first one, is #7 plastic. My grandchildren are going to have overbites and fur if I don't straighten up. Must make list to put in purse......
  • B has been working nights lately. He went on a call last night and forgot to take his mouth guard out. I guess when he was telling the patient to lie still and not struggle on the backboard one of the nurses burst out laughing and finally told him he sounded like Elmer Fudd.

if they are the right kind of dolls, you can yank off their heads (forgive me) and drain 'em that way...just make sure your kids aren't around to witness it.

I had a doll that peed. Do they still have the weird hole in the hoo hoo?

Please send the rain here.

And, so bizarre about the beheading on the bus.

One of Emily's dolls went through the washer. Unfortunately, she wasn't a wetting doll and so the only way to get the water out of her head was to prop her upside down so it could drain out her follicles. Of course, we didn't want Emily to see that, so she was in our bathroom. Made toothrbushing interesting for a few days...

And the story about B with his mouth guard cracked me up. That was too funny.

I love the vinegar and salt ones, pickling be damned.

Funny story with the dolls. I've got three girls (teenagers now) I just don't remember water issues with them. Maybe peeing dolls weren't in fashion when they were young.

I wear a night time mouth guard as well and have forgotten to take it out when call out on emergency. I just slurred alot with it in. Sounded a bit drunk.

What polls? Oh, please say it isn't so.

Have you tried the Kettle chips Salt and Pepper chips? Oh my, yum. Um, not that I would know since I'm all about eating healthy and stuff.

And...I'm tagging you today. ;-)
