Jeneric Jeneralities ~ by JenIG

Maggie the Hogan thinks JUST because she has a brilliant son who writes hilarious books and JUST because she's famous and speaks all over the country in places like Ohio and Iowa and Idaho and other states that have too many vowels in them that she can poke me right in the eyeball.  She is feisty today. don't tell me if I spelt feisty wrong.  I like the way it looks like that.  Right now she is running a contest for 13 people to win a date with one of her sons.  You'll want to check it out. It's quite shamefull really.  don't tell me if I spelt shamefull wrong.  And if you win a date with one of her sons, I don't want to hear about it, because frankly, we're not into the whole 'dating scene'.  We've decided to go with old fashion arranged marriages thru spousal catologs.  Yes Coie, that's right, SPOUSAL CATALOGS.  We listed you under the heading “Modest Young Smart Alek Who Thinks She Can Cook Better Than Her Momsie”.


I'm all a flutter.  I need my smelling salts.

    But….she CAN cook better than her momsie. So what she thinks is truth. Now get up off the floor; you are becoming addicted to those salts.

    uhoh. You are going to have to say 3 nice things about Maggie now.

    hehe. A friend of mine always made us do that when we had been less than charitable to others. I love her dearly for helping me keep a good perspective. Anyway, I’ll give you a hint for one…Maggie’s book (one of them) made me realize that having a gifted child and homeschooling him is a wonderful blessing and that it really isn’t that different than with any other child…you just help them go at their own pace and open up doors for them and teach them to learn. I’m so glad I found her early on in this journey!

    Anyway, I came over to say thanks for joining the challenge. Maybe I should come up with a prize to drum up some business. 😉

    I addressed the entire spousal issue already with Coie. We’re good. Now, let’s talk about your laundry HANGING FROM THE BEAMS 216 feet up in the air!!!! If I knew how to link the picture to this comment I SURE would! (Hint – see Coie’s site!) That has to be one of the funniest and wierdest pictures I’ve ever seen! Where’s Good Housekeeping when you need them? Maybe you could start yet another mag . . . “Not-So-Good Housekeeping” or “Gourmet Wannabe” or “Hairy Homeschoolers” . . . .

    I feel like I should nominate you for something . . . but my lovely 5 course French dinner is just about ready to serve my incredibly handsome and adoring husband so I must excuse myself to serve him his Le Bread, Le Meat and Le Dessert . . .

    btw – right now Happy Apple’s SECOND entry is waaaay in the lead for winning my contest! She is brilliant!!

    Like WhatEVER Maggie Hogan. You’re just jealous because you’re husband can’t weld and your taking it out on ME. I know all the classic symtoms of ‘welding husband’ envy, and honey, you got ALL the signs.

    And as for you Coie, you better tell everyone how good my noodle casserole was yesterday

    I like the idea of arranged marriages too. Sorry I don’t have a son Coie’s age. But maybe in 47 years at the wedding, a couple of years difference won’t matter.

    I won't mention that you spelled shameful wrong…

    but remember: Every sentence begins with a capital letter.

    My absolutely hilarious husband constantly makes jokes about having ordered me through one of those asian bride catalogs (please note the sarcasm here). Yeah…well, he should <i>really</i> ask for his money back!!! I'm sure I wasn't quite the typical or typecast asian wife that he was expecting. LOL

    My grandparents had an arranged marriage…but that's another story. The idea is not exactly a bad one…

    spousal catalogs?

    Well it’s already predestinated that my gorgeous, blonde, blue-eyed, 5yo daughter will marry an Eagle scout! So all the prospective Cub Scout suitors out there better plan on working *real hard* if they plan on coming a’ calling on my doorstep!

    In response to your comment on my blog this evening

    Your chickens will not be solitary in the event of a nuclear holocaust. They can join forces with my future chickens who will survive said holocaust in the safety and relative comfort of the fall-out shelter that will be built in my backyard very soon. My boys are constantly digging in the backyard (even got them Craftsman shovels–lifetime replacement guaranteed!) so I might as well give them a reason to dig!

    Bring your passle of kids and your pantry of canned water and MRE’s– just leave the cooking up to me cuz if we’re going to survive for 50 years I’m going to get mighty tired of chocolate chili, chocolate spaghetti or chocolate vanilla cake!

    Oh and I thought of Coie and her blowing up stuff last night when I was roasting some jalapeno’s for my kick rear end salsa…. One blew up as I was flipping it over… I immediately thought “Ooh, I’m making jalapeno poppers!”

    Speaking of Maggie the Hogan…

    OOPS!!! Yah! So sorry Jen! Duh! Being a dumb guy, I thought I was just showing Maggie the Hogan how to do the thing she asked about! It never crossed my mind that you might take it like that. Besides, as a guy, I was mainly checking out the cool cabin walls and vaulted 147 foot ceilings, not the laundry! Anyway, you oughta see what I’m used to around here — especially when we come back from a scout camping weekend! How ’bout tents set up in the living room and sleeping bags opened up to dry out all over the place? Ooooo… it really hurt that I was caught with my Scout Honor down! We’re in the business of walking old ladies across the street and otherwise preserving their honor! Sorry again! Let me make it up to you — how bout a Classical Astronomy sampler, direct to your door? Your kids might like it. Sorry again, jayfromcleveland (multiple posted in the relevant places)
