Thursday Thirteen-Thirteen Things That Confuse Me...

Oh Hell, it's Thursday already?! Thirteen things that confuse and bewilder me... 1. My lack of cooking skils. I mean is it just me or is it not in fact normal to give yourself food posioning?! 2. Here's a gross one, but oh so true. Why is it so hard for the body to digest corn? Think about it. 3. The fact that you can in fact continue throwing up, even if you have no food left in your stomach. 4. Oh the fact that my three children while lovely at times, can be so freaking ungrateful. I could go on and on about this one. 5. That even though I eat right (well if you don't count the endless runs to McD for fries) drink water (mostly, hey coffee HAS water in it) and yet my hair keeps falling out?!!! WTF! 6. Bad drivers. I don't get how there can be so many IDIOTS on the road. ~sigh~ 7. Oh, women who actually put full on make-up, just to go to the gym and talk on their cell phones. Yeah, your not actually going to lose any weight or gain muscle if all you do, is reapply your lipstick and talk on the phone. GET OUT! Before I wipe my sweat on you. 8. My unhealthy obession and love for Lena. It's not a joke, I think I do need help. We are seperate people, I swear. 9. My husbands need to shoulder all the responsibilty. While I appreciate it, it can be in fact frustrating. I feel for him. Love you honey! 10. People who still wear bubble gum pink lipstick. Guess what y'all? It's NOT the 80's. It didn't look good then and it still doesn't. 11. Oh, here's another one. How in the world do I know when to use then and than? I'm so confused. Explain. 12. Oh spiders and why the feel the need to ALWAYS land on me. Do I have some weird beacon? ~shudder~ 13. Gee, I'm almost done. Hmmm...?... Okay why does my 3 year old STILL call out to me to wipe her butt? When is that going to end? 'Cause I forget if my other two did it. All I know is I'm tired of hearing, "Mommy! Mommy! Wipe my butt! M-oooooo---mmm-Y! Wipe it!"

Hey there. Great 13! Very provocative.

2. So True. Not many people realize however that if used strategically, you can track the effects of various foods on your (ah-hem) movements.

3. Dry Heaving is the work of evil.

6. You must be the only other good driver in the country besides me.

8. I'm intrigues. Should I love her too?

9. Is that a typo or are you Mormon?

10. Totally. I stopped 10 years ago.

13. Hmmm. Not a parent yet, so I can't really help you there...maybe you'll have to invent some sort of ass-wiping rewards program.

Funny stuff. Check me out at The Moonjockey Lounge

LOL, thanks moonjockey.

Mormon? I didn't get the joke, I blame it on um, um, me not getting it. ~grin~

I hear ya on everything, especially the wiping butt duty. My 3 year old actually wanted to try to wipe his own butt, but I don't let him because I don't want a potential mess. those potty toppers don't give you much room to stick your hand down there either. I can just imagine it going all over the wall after he inspects what he wiped. Maybe when he's 4, I'll give him a crash course in Buttwiping.

I said mormon, because I think it says that you have "husbands." Mormons believe in polygamy. You may now laugh hysterically.

1. I just read in Glamour that hair falling out can be from Berf (birth) control. And some other stuff I can't remember.

2. I suppose corn's protective husk is strong enough to withstand the wiles of the stomach and GI tract! But...that would mean raisins have the same results. Hmmm.

3. Yes. Everyone else on the road IS an idiot.

11. Than is used in comparison (I am prettier than Catherine Zeta-Jones. In my dreams.). Then is used in descriptions of time (I went to Starbucks then I went to work. Late. But my boss didn't notice.).

And I have an unhealthy obession with both you and Lena. Both together and seprately.

#8 - I have a best friend like that... even her mom though I was her on the phone the other day!

#10 - don't get it, either

#11 - use "than" when comparing, as in "Her butt is bigger than mine"; use then when talking about time as in "Then, we went shopping"

Love it!

LOL! #3 It is called bile> #5 Me too I had to buy one of those little drain stoppers with all the hair that comes out my freakin head it was stopping up the drain! Than is comparing, then is used in order of Like and then she barfed again;)

What I don't get is how the corn is whole, even though you know you chewed it into a paste!

I'm thinking we need to start a Vi and Lena-holics Anonymous group. It's obvious none of us can get enough of either of you!

Yes, I'm waiting for my kid to wipe his own butt thanks. It's gross. The other day we had this talk. It may take some work. Sigh, no triple sigh.

Pink lipstick, uh yeah.

And body suits, I hope to God they are NOT back. What's up with those? I've seen five in teh past few weeks? A tad shocking.


As always, a pleasure.

My mom still wipes my butt, and I'm 33. What's the big deal?

I lose a lot of hair, but I have so much that it doesn't make a difference... If you are worried (like getting patches of baldness) you should go to the doctor (it is called Alopecia).
"Alopecia areata often occurs in families whose members have had asthma, hay fever, atopic eczema, or other auto-immune diseases such as thyroid disease, early-onset diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus erythematosus, vitiligo, pernicious anaemia, or Addison's disease."
Some say stress can cause hair loss... my friend lost chunks of hair during her divorce. Once her life got back on track it stopped happening. I've heard too, that pregnancy can do funky things to your hair.
I didn't get Moonjockey's joke either. I just read "husband's". Plus, I don't think the Mormon women are supposed to be polygamous... but whateva.
# 13 - what happens when you tell her to do it herself? I recently found out that my 5 year old nephew expects people to wipe for him. TOO OLD!! Ack! His Grandma was the one who finally said, "No, I am not going to do it, you do it." (His mommy and daddy weren't there to jump in and do it). He cried, but did it and then he was proud of himself.

I could have written your 13 this week. I knew there was a reason i liked you...

Although I am not sure I buy that you and LEna are seperate people. I still thinlk she is your alter ego. Or you are hers. Or something.

If Lena is Virenda or Virenda is Lena, then neither of them actually have kids b/c it would be a full time job to do all the blogging and comments that they do! Ce n'est pas possible.

Hah! Number 13 was high-larious.

Still laughing.

LOL!! I can still hear my little sister calling out to my mom from the bathroom: "I'm DOOOOO-one! Come WIPE meeeeee!!!!"

So cute. I had lunch with her today and she turned out great, despite the delayed butt-wiping skills. :)

Sorry I couldn't comment earlier...

#3 This is especially fun when in labor.

#7 Guilty as charged, wait...I don't go to the gym.

#8 She's not Bi, I've tried.

#11 LMAO...then I remembered this is more important than that.

#12 Once a spider was on my shirt and instead of swatting it away, I swatted it into my mouth...true story.

Once again, you rock.

I would love to never hear my three year old shout WIPE MY STINKY BUTT! again. If I mention him perhaps doing it himself, he says, "no way, that's disgusting!"

My sentiments exactly, child.

Do you chew your corn?

I do not get the chat on the cell phone bit while at the gym. I would much rather get in a good workout THAN gossip with Joe Blow. Once I'm done working out I can THEN use my cell phone to tell Joe Blow about the hottie on the treadmill next to me wearing bubble gum pink lipstick and yoga pants. Est-ce que vous comprenez? Parfait!

LOL at what Tory says - I actually have to make Abby go make in the bathroom sometimes because she WON'T wipe her butt. Oy.

OK, I'm a loser for commenting a day late. Sorry.

And I will have to join the Lena/Vi-aholic group.

As for #13 - we made a big production of buying flushable wipes so it wouldn't be so intimidating for her.

Oh... I'm so glad Jacob can wipe his own butt. I hated seein his corn reappear ;)

You forgot #14 - "Why my best friend forgot to come by my seite yesterday."

Because I'm a loser - so sorry kitten.

#3 - I'm familiar with this one considering how often we drink together ;). Ack.

#8 - The feeling is mutual. Even if you are cheating on me with this damn blog!

#10 - But, it goes with my blue eye shadow!

#13 - The story of my life.

Love your list. Love you. And I will be the first person here next week!!! You hear me y'all?!

I was doing just fine, reading and chuckling, when along came a spider and Renee swatted it into her mouth.

Oh ... ewwwww!

So yeah, I'm a day late 'cuz I'm still working on the new laptop.

#4 - My kids are the same way. I often find myself grumbling ... freakin' ungrateful little snot-pickled brats. *heh* Of course, when they give me a hug and tell me they love me, that makes all the grumblings go away.

#6 - I want someone to invent two things for this: (1) A huge boxing glove that pops out of the front bumper, with the push of a button. and (2) A device, whereupon you punch in the license plate number of the idiotic driver, and then your voice will come over a loudspeaker on their dash ... "Pull the f*ck over, moron!" Or whatever else you deem worthy of repeating.

#7 - Yeah, what you said.

#8 - Seperate, perhaps, but equally lovable.

#9 - Awwww!

#11 - Then tells time. Than does not. (*smile*)

#12 - I'm the same way with rocks. I'm a rock magnet. I've never had an auto windshield that hasn't been cracked. Yup, just this year alone, my windshield has been hit four times. I would have to say that I prefer this over spiders, though. (*shudder*) I can't stand them creepy-crawlies.

#13 - Um ... ya just gotta say "no", Vi. ;)

Have a great weekend!
