Where’s My Other Slipper?

I was going to blog earlier but it was Emily and Marshie’s fault.  They were busy crushing me into a humiliating ball of ear wax.  As a public service warning, take note and do *not* play Word Twist or Scramble with them on Facebook.  Don’t do it.  You’ll be sorry; unless of course your ego needs a good whompin’.  They’ve won EVERY game I’ve played with them.  Real friends let their loser friends *win* every once in a while. 


In other news, my mother in law finally brought my kids home from MI and now we are keeping her captive.  I like having her here.  Whenever I run off and hide in my room to get beat up online by E and M, she goes into the kitchen and cooks.  Oh. My. Heavens can my mother in law cook.  We are all begging her to move in with us.  And I also like her because she lets me beat her in Boggle every time we play.  She’s the greatest.  She’s fun.  And I think I’m only about thiiiiiiiiiiiiiiis close in getting her to like me more than Geoff the Great.  Not that I’m competitive or anything. 


In other news, I’m having a hard time living so far away from Jess.  I actually dreamed that we moved up to Alaska, but the weird part was is that I liked it.  Like I said, I was dreaming.  Some how, some way, I’ve got to figure out a way to make Charley move his family down to TN.


I’m going to pull all my Christmas junk out of the basement today and start decorating.  Mutter groan moan. 


PS if you stink at Word Twist or Scramble feel free to challenge me to a game.

    Just who in the world is that post script aimed at, I’d like to know?

    I can not believe that you are caving in to the Christmas decorations 2 days before Thanksgiving. You, my dear, are slipping.

    Did you make the cookies?

    If you will check your Facebook, I think you will find that I am a VERY good friend to you. You’re welcome.

    Oh P’shaw. I beat you by like 10 points last night! I keep telling you….you’re actually SUPER good. YEah, I may be better, but girl…you’re an awesome 2nd place. 🙂

    and beautiful.

    Does that make up for the smack?

    if you actually moved here, you’d see it’s *not* so weird for people to like it. It’s actually quite awesome. Anyone who’s ever moved here (no matter how much they hate cold weather) has loved it. and when they try to move away, they always, ALWAYS come back. Always. And the cold? You do the same thing for 20 degrees here that you do for 50 degrees THERE… you bundle up. no. biggie.

    and no, I didn’t realize that we’d both linked to emily and marsha. we MUST be related.

    and boy did you help ME feel good when the only thing you commented abuot in my post was that you second that i’m a dork. thanks a lot. Why don’t you just come by and shove me off the side of the couch when I’m not looking again…

    I also cannot believe that you’re caving with the Christmas decorations before Thanksgiving. I refuse to even find the decorations until Friday. 🙂

    And now I have to challenge you to Word Twist & Scramble, just to see if I’m any good. 🙂

  12. on November 25th, 2008 at 5:51 pm

    I CANNOT get the stupid Word twist to work! I tried to challenge Em to a game, but it fails me. Maybe I should recognize it for the Providence that it is, huh?

    I would play with you on Facebook and I promise to be fair. 🙂 I’ll add you to my friends list.

    TAG, your it! Answer these questions in a post. And this time it’s about Geoff and not you (or at least it tests you to see how much you know about Geoff) 🙂

    1. He’s sitting in front of the TV, what is on the screen?
    2. You’re out to eat; what kind of dressing does he get on his salad?
    3. What’s one food he doesn’t like?
    4. You go out to the bar. What does he order?
    5. Where did he go to high school?
    6. What size shoe does he wear?
    7. If he was to collect anything, what would it be?
    8. What is his favorite type of sandwich?
    9. What would he eat every day if he could?
    10. What is his favorite cereal?
    11. What would he never wear?
    12. What is his favorite sports team?
    13. Who did he vote for?
    14. Who is his best friend?
    15. What is something you do that he wishes you wouldn’t do?
    16. How many states has he lived in?
    17. What is his heritage?
    18. You bake him a cake for his birthday; what would it be?
    19. Did he play sports in high school?
    20. What could he spend hours doing?

    Jen, do that tag. it’s fun. we all want to know more about Geoff. Although, I think I could answer most of those questions myself. Except for his heritage. not sure on that one.

    Ouch. You know they say the truth hurts. I’m going to bring in my 6 year old as a ringer next time. Bring it on…

    I haven’t figured out facebook enough to know that you can play games. Sounds like fun. I hope your Thanksgiving was happy and blessed.

    I am feeling quite queenly today– I not only beat Emily’s high score on pathwords, but my brother’s score as well! Yup, I am totally rockin’ right now. Just don’t ask me about my carpal tunnel and just how many hours of my life I just wasted on the computer just saying “one more game…”
