Jeneric Jeneralities ~ by JenIG

Ok, so the curly headed monster
goes from saying, “Sure we'll move out to Hohenwald with you” to
“Forget it, I changed my mind I think God stuck us in the Smoky
Mountains for a reason”.  All my dreams for a weird little
homeschool commune and roaming the hills with wild goats and elephants
seem to be evaporating like a spilled Mountain Dew on a hot blacktop
interstate hwy.

So anyways, my daughter Coie,
she is such a little brat, she turned our kitchen into a full blown
candy making factory.  Coie Wonka.  But that's not why she's
a brat.  I told her I would help make the candy, and in the
process, I made up my very ery ery own special superb delectible
candy.  The reason why she is a brat, is because she turned her
snobbish nose up at my candy and said 'it didn't count as homemade
because it was too easy to make” whatever.  I think dipping carmel pieces in the melted chocolate she made completely qualifies as 'real homemade candy'. 

In protest of her wicked behaviour I ate half a bag of white chocolate chips for lunch.

I don't feel so good.

    oh my Jen, you are a hoot!!!

    firstly, i agree (stop it Coie!) that anything dipped in chocolate shall qualify as a homemade candy…even a lugnut!

    secondly, the commune may only have magical goats, so they may milk thenmselves, and no one with ugly puppies shall be able to commune there

    that had better not have been the white chocolate meant for MY Christmas candy.

    and henceforth I will be refering to Gena as The beautiful blue-eyed queen…..

    Here I am packing up the family, animals and all, when suddenly I decide to read your blog and you have decided not to start the homeschool commune……..WHAT??????? NO WAY!!!!!!!!and your calling Coie a BRAT! Take a good look in the mirror. Now I have to go and break the bad news to my family. Why does it always have to be ME to break the bad news? Even the animals are going to be disappointed. You owe me BIG!

    0:) Amber

    PS~ Coie is RIGHT, your candy does’t count-HA! No homeschool commune…buh.

    That’s ok…the commune was destined for failure. When Anonymous demanded having HER own house and Amber objected to MY dog chasing HER animals, I knew it would not work.

    And if peanut butter balls dipped in melted chocolate (my favorite) count as homemade…and they do in my book…then so do your caramel thingies. Homemade Rolos…MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Does this mean you’ll think about Alabama?

    Your not………

    OK, you not a BRAT, but I’m still upset about the NO HOMESCHOOL COMMUNE thing, and so are the animals–epecially the GOATS:(

    0:( Amber

    No Hohenwald???

    Now what am I going to do with the goofy, leather lederhosen I sewed up special this afternoon? I can’t wear those stupid things here in Summerfield…it’s that rule, any town ending in “boro” or “field”…the official town fabric is flannel. About the candy, anything that is cooked, dipped, fondued, George Forman’d, baked, scalded, grilled, microwaved or fried and contains carmel is candy…even carmel put through a fruit drying contraption.

    Then you must move to my end of my dead-end street in Porter, TX. Then you can not only be an Igarashi but be a Porter-ican as well!!!

    And if you would like to get rid of your semi-homemade candy, then feel free to throw them into the box for ME! Mmmmm….

    Ok, let me clarify a few thingamajiggers. Aunt Spiffy, yes, that white chocolate is coming out of your candy account. But no worries, we will buy more, which will come out of mom’s bank account.

    And as for mom’s candies: Here’s what she does. I have my carefully cared for caramel truffles that took two days to make all layed out and getting dipped in perfectly melted chocolate by dad. Once completed she was like, “Hey look! There’s still more melted chocolate!” So she grabs a bag of disgusting, store bought, factory packaged, dull carmels and starts dunking them in chocolate with chopsticks and calls it the best candy so far.

    IT’S NOT REAL CANDY– DON”T BE FOOLED! You can’t call it real candy if you take two candies, smash ’em together and decide you’ve invented something new. And if anyone disagrees with that, then next year, I’m just going to dunk pop rocks in chocolate in place of caramel truffles and chocolate covered cherries, and pecan clusters, and fudge assortments.

    That wasn't very funny Coie!

    You gave me heart palpatations there for a moment. I was afraid I was going to have to sneak over there and take Maria’s or Amy’s candy.

    With Coie’s excellent narrative of the events I have to say that was definitely not candy. No way. Sorry. Try again.

    Please… pop rocks!

    There! You see that?? Did I not tell you?? What a little toad. As IF! not real candy my foot. I don’t know how it happened, but somehow I’ve raised a candy-snob.

    Hey Coie! Try my Needhams recipe–they’re really good!

    Jen, I gotta agree with her–you did NOT make candy! LOL

    And I think you give up on communes WAY too easily!!!

    Sounds Good!

    I’m not so sure pop rocks dipped in chocolate sounds so bad! I liked the Oreos with pop rocks in the cream that came out a few years ago!

    But then again… I am hypoglycemic and am sugar deprived 90 per cent of the time so anything with chocolate sounds as good as the next… truffle or trifle though it may be!

    The Odd Couple Sisters

    Gena and Jen

    The Sister Odd Couple

    They’re CRAZY and SILLY

    They’ll make you laugh

    And even chuckle

    Gena’s a publisher

    Jen she’s a writer

    Gena’s the punisher

    And of course Jen’s the biter

    The question once was

    Friend or Foe?

    Now their LOVE for the Lord

    And each other

    It does show!

    Gena, ya liked that poem, how bout this one?

    Come an’ listen to a story about Jen and Gena,

    A couple a’ sisters from Californi-nina,

    Then one day they got in their head,

    To move across the country and start a homestead.

    Homeschool style…

    Ever’one home… all the time….

    Well the next thing you know they moved to Tennessee,

    To the mountains near Dollywood they call the Smok-ee,

    They packed up ten young’uns and The Old Schoolhouse,

    And to Cool, Californee they said “Adios.”

    The Californee Hillbillies!
