Ho Hum Twiddle Dee and Twiddle Dum

Funniest thing ever (thanks to SATGS for hipping us to it)

I was bored and saw this on Kemp's page so yeah, here we go:

1)Go to Wikipedia: and I'm done with that

2) In the search box, type your birth month and day but not the year. This one seems easy enough

3) List five events that happened on your birthday:
First: 1703 - Tsar Peter the Great founds the city of Saint Petersburg.
Second: 1895 - Oscar Wilde is sent to prison for sodomy. (Um wow, that's a hell of a useless fact that will now forever be burned into my brain matter. Thanks)
Third: 1937 - In California, the Golden Gate Bridge opens to pedestrian traffic, creating a vital link between San Francisco and Marin County.
Fourth: 1939 - DC Comics publishes its second superhero in Detective Comics #27; he is Batman, one of the most topical comic book superheroes of all time (my husband would file for divorce if I didn't include this one. It's Batman for God's sake)
Five: 1995 - In Culpeper, Virginia, actor Christopher Reeve is paralyzed from the neck down after falling from his horse in a riding competition.

A lot of sad/bad shit happened on my birthday in years gone by. Bring on the goodness!

4) List five important birthdays and one death.

1601 - Antoine Daniel, Jesuit missionary and martyr \
1837 - Wild Bill Hickok, American gunfighter 1911 - Vincent Price, American actor (I get creeped out when I see him in a movie even though I've seen him in interviews and he was funny as all get out)
1964 - Adam Carolla, American comedian and radio and television personality
1971 - Lisa 'Left Eye' Lopes (and 1975 - Andre 3000 and Jadakiss)

Death – 2000 - Charles M. Schulz Creator of the comic strip Peanuts (Since he's a Twin City native, I gotta have him and really, who doesn't like Peanuts?)

5) One holiday or observance (if any)

Children's Day in Nigeria

6) Tag 5 other bloggers to complete.

Since I "borrowed" this from Kemp and I'd like to take this opportunity to borrow his answer as well......."No use since no one listens to me tags. If you want to do it, do it. If you don’t want to do it, don’t…"

I have this voicemail that I want to share with all of the internet but alas, I don't know how to get the audio on here. It wouldn't be the same if I transcribed it. Help me. Please.

My son likes poop and my daughter hasn't pooped in 2 days. Good times my internet friends, good times.


Welcome to my world. Ian will poop four times in a day and Claudia will go that many days without.

One Of These Things Is Not Like The Other

When was the first time that you realized that your home was not like other people’s homes? 

My house has always been different from other houses. I don't think I could narrow it down to a particular time. I recall not having friends stay over. Ever. I always stayed at all my friends' houses and called their moms "Mom".

Not a lot of my friends were only children so to them, I was the odd duck. Believe me, I *was* the odd duck. Just for a myriad of other reasons.

Having a family of my own, I really see the differences in houses. We are more relaxed with some things that would not fly in other houses. It gets loud in our house. Extremely loud. If I stopped them from being loud all the time, I wouldn't get a single thing done. I tend to jump in right away when the kids are arguing because it can, and will, quickly snowball into WWIII and someone (or both) will be crying. We let our son play the Wii, computer or DS for far longer than other parents or even the "…


Please do not ask me to email photos out, I get entirely too many requests for them. These are the ones that I have at home, thanks to a couple of sources.

This Has To Be Said

I haven't blogged in 8 months. We bought a house, still unpacking, school started. You know, life. I felt the need, the urgent need to blog about the Adrian Peterson situation today. I am full of all sorts of feelings and had to write about it. I would love to hear your thoughts on this whole thing. No really, I would. I don't feel I was a douchebag in my writing so all I ask is you not be a douchebag in your response. Thanks.

My thoughts on the Adrian Peterson situation (but first, some backstory):
I was spanked as a child. I'm pretty sure most of us that grew up in the 80s were.Until the summer between 5th and 6th grade I lived in Charelston, SC and from 6th to 11th grade, North Chicaco, IL. I have seen every form of discipline doled out on a child. I've seen spankings, beatings, hairbrushes smacked into heads, spoons hitting the tops of heads, whips, belts and even switches. I've seen it all.Most of you know that my son is named after a little boy who died from c…
