from the dead

I really want to show you the brand new cups I got from the Italianfest but I am using our old computer to type. Do not ask me why, LP is the computer whiz in this coupling, not me. All I know is I've got my 'work' computer and my "google" computer and that is all I need to know! So, no cup pics for now, I will try to work my magic by tomorrow though.

The weekend was a blur of drinking and soccer games, unfortnately not at the same time. Out of 5 games, my kids are 2-2-1. Not too bad. those soccer parents are psychotic though, I think I've mentioned that. Some lady had a friggin' COWBELL and whenever they scored she rang it. Oh and yes, she had a soccer umbrella too, how did you know? Crazies!

Here is a shocker: I COOKED DINNER last night. This does not happen often. But now I'm back at home so I feel obligated to do it. I made bacon cheeseburger meatloaf, it was deelish. I hated meatloaf as a kid, but buy this is some good stuff.

The guys came to do a final measure for our kitchen and he was supposed to call yesterday but he did not. I am beginning to wonder if this whole kitchen remodel is a figment of my imagination, it just does not seem like it is ever going to come to fruition. Is that too many "tions" in one sentence? Great now I have that song in my head "T-I-O-N tion tion tion tion" Does anyone else remember that or just me?

Hmm. I reread this and I've realized this caffeine has absolutely kicked in. You know I'm not supposed to drink caffeine! What was I thinking? Why didn't you stop me??

My daughters have been entertaining me with totally not getting song lyrics correct. Here is a sample:

R singing: "Let the rain fall down and bake my beans, let it wash away my celery"
Right lyrics: Let the rain fall down, and wake my dreams let it wash away my sanity"

R singing: "What a girl wants what a girl needs, why don't you take me back to the 70s"
Right lyrics: "What a girl wants, what a girl needs, whatever makes me happy sets you free"

Hee hee she cracks me up. Also my other daughter was telling me about this dream where she was in "Oprah" and how the audience was clapping and I said, "What? You were on Oprah?" And she said, "Yeah, I was singing Oprah, like the lady does with the hat with the horns on her head." I laughed, "Oh, you mean, you were singing OPERA."

I've got a cultured bunch of kids don't I??

That is all for now, have a great Tuesday!

Have you seen those books: "'Scuse me while I kiss this guy and other misheard lyrics"?

My girlfriend and I have a thing for misheard song lyrics. It all started when we were mere teenagers and overheard her younger brother sing, 'Who-oh-yo-oh-yo-sweet car-oh-line'. Only her brother could have confused Guns N Roses for Neil Diamond!

I guess I missed something- you are remodeling your kitchen? Must go through your archives to find out all about it!

My dad sings the same way...sings the words he know and totally makes up what he doesn't!

Vajana said...

I have heard of that...actually there used to be a website, I'll have to look that up.

Neil Diamond rocks!

Here's another one my daughter screwed up: "Lay down sally"...she thought it was "Way Down South"!

Mama Duck: Dads singing are just worth it though don't ya think?

Very swett kiddos you have!

I think the kids' versions are correct, and your versions are wrong. Everybody knows the fat lady sings Oprah.

Reminds me of the "Bring Back Fat Oprah" shirt... who had that??

Your girls are priceless.
