Kinda sad and uninspired

15 Sep

The transition into fall seems to be breathing new life into many of you and your blogs.  Unfortunately, whatever’s inspiring you has yet to reach me.  Boo.  Until I reclaim my blogging mojo (you know, I tried to shorten that again, and it’s still just wrong), here are a few random conversational tidbits.


Overheard out of context.

Goose: BigHugs, if you have a baby in front of your husband then that baby’s going to get eaten by your husband.

I don’t know what this was about, but I blame Animal Planet.


Special request for Mr. T.

Me:  Can you like not make your digestive issues into a song?

It’s like a 24-hr gas station around here.  Could there actually be something to this puberty gas?


Family together time.

DynaGirl flips hair over her face and makes indecipherable barnyard noise.

Mr. T: You sould like a dying goat.

Me: Why would a cow have no face and long hair?

DynaGirl: I was being Chewy!

Me: Oh!

Mr. T, laughing hysterically: Why would a cow have no face and long hair?

Me: That’s what I wanted to know!

And I’m totally not getting “Why would a cow have no face?” thrown at me every. single. day.

    Maybe it was a Highland cow.

    "Heee-laaand Cooooo."

    Love it when you make me spew my soup on my computer screen in front of my colleagues. Good times.

    You are never sad and uninspired. I hope my husband never eats our baby….

    The dingo ate my baby!

    Susan—Maybe it was! See? I’m not crazy.

    Shaz—Always happy to oblige.

    Flip—Thank you. And me too! At least not before Saturday, so I can at least meet him first. (Yay!)

    Julie—I used that line the other day and my kids looked at me like I was insane, so then I had to explain, but of course nothing is ever the same once you have to explain.

    Crap. Are we that old?

    PS, I was giggling like a Sophmore boy at the Blog Mojo abbreviation. I didn’t even have to go back to the archives on that one.

    When you find that mojo, mind sending some my way?

    Julie—I actually started to type it again before I remembered it really doesn’t work.

    Tawnya—Gladly. And same for you. Or me. Or whatever.

    I had four babies in front of my husband, he didn’t eat a single one. Guess I dodged a bullet there.

    I’m still giggling over the eating babies comment. what a way to start the day!

    And yet, you are MY inspiration!

    Goose was thinking of the Greek myth. Every time she said “Come see the new baby!” Kronos would swallow it.
