Mr. Hollywood

I’ve already told the story about how my mother married my best friend’s father and we became stepsisters. What I haven’t told you is that not only did I gain a stepsister, but a stepbrother as well, four years my junior. When we were young, my sister and I would torture him by locking him […]


Wow, folks it’s been way too long since I’ve posted! I’ve been so busy at work. I’m not talking just a little busy, I’m talking about, “Hi, I’m going on a shooting spree, care to join me?” busy. And I’ve had quite a few takers on that offer, as a matter of fact. Thankfully the body […]

Rescue Mission: De-Briefing

This weekend’s rescue mission went so much better than I had expected! Granted, Friday night was a bit of a pain. Rosie and I left St. Louis around 6:15, and didn’t get in to Arkansas until midnight. The highlight of the night was stopping at Dairy Queen for Blizzards. Purely for functional purposes, of course. We don’t LIKE […]

Rescue Mission

Remember how I told you I was going to be a foster Mom for a Shiba Inu? Well, the transport of the dogs to all the foster homes is happening this weekend. The breeder is in Ft. Smith, Arkansas, and the foster homes are in St. Louis (me), Illinois, Iowa, Indiana, Texas and Michigan. So, […]

Dress For The Job You Want

OK, first of all, for those of you using a feed reader, you MUST click through to my actual site! Alright, everybody here? Excellent! Notice anything different? That’s right! I have a new blog design! And I’m uber excited about it! (As you’ve probably gathered from my excessive use of exclamation points.) You see, that old generic […]

Blame it on Aunt Becky

On May 11, 2008, I read this post by Aunt Becky of Mommy Wants Vodka. She’s my favorite blogger. We’re like this: || mostly because I stalk her. She probably wishes we were more like this |                                              |. Anyway, do you SEE that adorable puppy??? I think I ovulated when I saw that picture. She said that it […]

Duct Tape and Daddy O’Grape

My first guest post, I’m so excited! This was written by my beautiful stepmother, Honeybee. It cracked me up so much that I asked her if I could post it here, and thankfully she agreed. I just added the pictures and captions. It’s about my father, Daddy O’Grape. You know, the 50 Grapes Guy. Honeybee doesn’t […]

About Me And The Voices

Me: I’m a 41-year-old married working mother of two boys and three step-kids (see below).  I am a big dork, and will do just about anything to get a laugh. I try to remain positive as much as possible, which is why I don’t watch the news. My family is the most important part of […]

My First Time

Um. Hi. My name is (oh crap, I’m trying to be anonymous and I haven’t even picked out a name yet) Betty Laura Rosalyn Bubbles Suzy. Yeah, that’s it. Suzy. Totally not my real name. Not even close. This is my first blog post ever, so I’m really nervous.  I’m afraid the pig’s blood is gonna […]
