Monkey Business

Chimps! I love chimps! One of my favorite animals on my somewhat short list of favorite animals. It's Dolphins, Chimps, Pandas & Sea Otters in that order. These pictures were taken in 1988. The year we got married. Actually, this was part of our honeymoon. We were young & not very well off financially, so we stayed in Florida and went the theme park route. His name was Coco & he lived at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay. The similarities between chimps & humans was proven on this day. Coco & his mate were playing around their enclosure, as seen in the picture it was a huge pit. Apparently, my sexy self caught his attention. Chimps are attracted to me, pretty sad huh? I started waving at him & calling out to him. I guess he took it as a sign of mutual interest and decided to go for it. He went and grabbed a stick to climb up to me. Mind you, all this was done in front of his girl chimp. She was not very happy about this at all. She came charging, grabbed the stick from under him which caused him to fall. He looked at her and probably saw the rage in her eyes and decided to RUN!!! She, in turn, chased him with the stick! It was the funniest thing ever! But the drama did not end there. After a few rounds around the pit, she got fed up and climbed a tree and sat there with her arms crossed and pouting. Coco paced around and eventually climbed up and sat next to her, put his arm around her and made kissy face!!! Now tell me, is that not like a typical man???? I wish we would have gotten it on video. Since we do not have it on tape, here is a funny chimp video for you.

It's beginning to look a tiny bit like Christmas

We still haven't finished putting up our decorations. At the rate we're going, this could possibly take us till Christmas! On Friday, we brought all the stuff down and planted it all in my living room. Saturday, I decorated the staircase. Sunday, we put up the tree.... only the tree. Today, we put up the lights on the tree. Maybe tomorrow I will actually finish decorating the tree. Then we will tackle the outside. That should take us another 3 days or more! Normal people finish in one day, we are not very normal!

This man is a genius! He was on the Ellen Show today. He has been with his wife for 29 years. When asked what the secret to a succesful relationship is, he replied : " I do what she says" Exactly! Brilliant, simply brilliant!

I went to Target today, to sneak in some shopping before the rush. Got all the little kids out of the way. Now I just have to worry about my girls & a couple of other teenage kids. Then I will be done! Finito! Until that is, I remember someone that I "just have to get something for!"

Right now, I should be baking for tomorrow. But I am sitting here typing this and watching Cash Cab! The later I start, the fresher it will be tomorrow right????

So I looked old at 17!

My dear sweet daughter has just informed me that I looked old in my high school Senior pictures. I guess it's payback. I said the same exact thing to my mom when I was about the same age. Just a right of passage, I just warned her not to be surprised when her kids say the same thing to her. Although, I still say that the kids in class of 1964 did not look 17 or 18. Let me not get into the 1950's class. Now that I have offended people in 2 decades, I would like to know why every one was always looking away from the camera???? I don't know why I'm posting my picture since I hate it. But here it is for all to see. I don't know what that red lipstick was all about, but whatever. My lips looke huge (no botox)!

It is supposed to go down into the freaking 30's tonight! My body does not enjoy the cold. I am especially opposed to the cold since I do not have any winter clothes. For now, I guess I will be layering clothes. Hopefully, what they say is true, "Weebles wobble but they don't fall down!"

Not much to say......

I haven't written anything in a while. Mainly because I have nohing to say. :) It's been a very slow week. Just paying bills and trying to get Danny to finish the stuff on the "Honey do" list. Looks like my house won't be ready before the holidays because of all the procrastination. But what can I do??
Property taxes are due in a few weeks. Conveniently, they love to suck our money away from us during the holidays. Maybe that is why I still have not gotten into the Christmas "spirit".

Tomorrow I have to go see my gyno. Another ultrasound & hope for good news. Recommendation has been surgery. I wonder if it will change???

Jail Time???

Am I going to need my "Get Out of Jail Free" card? For some reason Florida has a ton of dumb laws and I seem to be guilty of breaking a few. So for a person whos has never seen the inside of a police station much less a jail, it looks like I am quite the criminal. Another reason to move to Hawaii, they only have 2 of these laws.

You can check out your state at http://www.dumblaws.com

* Women may be fined for falling asleep under a hair dryer, as can the salon owner.

Lost Opportunity

Spirit had another killer "Red Light Sale". I was soooo close to booking, it's not even funny. Danny stood there, cheering me on. Book it! Book it! I had to be the voice of reason though, because he sure was no help. There is no way we can leave for another week. The girls would kill us. It hurt to miss out on it though. Total cost for the 2 of us round trip: $69. OMG!!!! I console myself with the fact that I would have frozen my butt off and been totally miserable. That's my story & I'm sticking to it.

In other breakng news, yesterday, I went on my (almost) daily trek to Target. All Halloween stuff was 90%. Got a bunch of candy that we don't need plus a few other knick knacks. Everything rang up between .20 & .50 each. So, whether we need it or not, I bought it. The picture shows what about $7 of candy looks like. Don't worry, it's not all for me. Really. I only like Kit Kats, Twiz, & Take 5 so I am pretty safe. Some for Danny & the rest for all the upcoming parties. I'll be in charg of goody bags for sure!

First Class all the way!

No more Coach for me! From now on this will be my preferred method of airplane travel. Aside from the comfort level, look at all the gadgets that Danny can play with!

I swear, I was supposed to be born rich. You can place 3 similar items in front of me, and I will automatically lean towards the most expensive one!

Halloween was a total bust. Danny & I sat outside with our huge bowl of candy & hidden treats for the little ones. We must have gotten 5 groups of trick or treaters, a total of about 20 kids. Seven of which were cute little kiddies. The rest were teens without costume & facial hair! The little ones got Pez dispensers plus candy while the older ones got just candy. If they were polite, they would get more candy.

Today I need to get my rear in gear early. I have a bunch of errands to run. I also have to make a Target run & see what's on sale. I should start Xmas shopping, but I am not in the mood. We would love to just pack up & leave on a cruise or something this Xmas. I feel like a big Scrooge. I love decorating my house, having parties, being with friends & family. I also usually enjoy buying gifts but this year that gift giving feeling has not kicked in. My girls really don't need anything & my nephews have everything so what do I get??? I just really do not want to stress over it. I will probably do what I don't really like to do & hand out gift cards!

Bah Humbug!
