woo hoooo

A letter

A letter to the woman
standing in front of me
in dunkin donuts
this morning

Dear Mam,

I couldn't help but notice your unique smell
while I waited in line for my coffee

If I was to describe it, I would have to say...
You smelled like a cross between a life-sized
Strawberry Shortcake Doll and a Homeless Person.

Listen.. I know you think that your "Strawberry Perfume"
from the dollar store is masking the stench of your non-bathed body

But you need to know - it's not working out for you

So, Here's a TIP - Free of charge:

For about the same price you paid for that
magical strawberry scent

you could buy this

Think about it.

You wouldn't just be helping yourself,
you'd be helping AMERICA


Jen@ casual slack

it's just lunch

apples... pineapple... cantaloupe

What did you have?

guest post

A Guest post today
courtesy of my friend Angela A.K.A. 2fools

Remember that time you and I were little and we were playing
outside - and we were having such a good time,
that neither of us wanted to go inside....
I remember we were sitting outside in front of your mom's house
making each other laugh and eating oranges.
When it was finally time for us to go inside we both peed our pants,
neither of us wanted to be the first to walk in the house.
It was a "peed pants stand-off" if you will. "No, you go in...
NO! You go first and then I'll go..."
Neither of us wanted the other to know we peed our pants, but the more we
insisted the other go first, it was clear...the pants had been peed.
Just then, your mom calls out the door,
"You two beauties come inside and have some lunch.
and of course, poor little Angie, had to be the first to go in....
...I wanted to thank you for coming to my rescue that day,
though. You really had my back. :)
I remember we both blamed the oranges
for making us pee our pants
That day would always be known as "the Oranges Incident"

this just in..

Heath Ledger

full story

that sucks.


circa 1978

I'm at some kind of appliance store with my mother & father
they were looking at washers & dryers I think..

They narrowed it down to two choices
they were across from each other so they kept walking back and forth
back and forth, back and forth,
back and forth

I would walk with them - I was little- so I mostly just focused on their legs
the salesman had on the same color plants as my father..

in the meantime
I'm standing there with one of those 'snack size' boxes of junior mints

on the back of the box there was a cartoon picture of Fonzie
doing the thumps up Ayyyyyyye

so, obviously I was mesmerized
by this - as most human beings
would be..

I kept striking the Ayyyyyye pose
not as cool as Fonzie
- but I looked damn good

I remember I wanted to leave like any 5-6 year old would..
so I grabbed what I thought was my fathers leg
telling him I wanted to go home
and when I looked up - it was the stupid ass
salesman not my father


I was hoodwinked
Hey.. they had the same color pants!
they went back and forth so many god damn times I got confused
and with the Fonzie distraction it was an honest mistake...

yet I was mortified

I was hugging some strange mans leg..
He looked as terrified as I was

I cried

I hated this man-
I hated his entire family
how dare he wear the same color pants

we soon left

My mom told me it would be okay.. I didn't believe her

But I still had Fonzie to console me

the end

I saw this over at Some Guys

Let’s Make a Band:
The first article title on the page is the name of your band.

The last four words of the very last quote is the title of your album.
(you might have to click new random quotes at the bottom)

The third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

You then take the pic and add your band name
and the album title to it, then post your pic.

Here's Mine - and it ROCKS!

all true

Favorite quotes
from my in-laws
over the years

My husband's grandmother-
We're sitting on a deck having a drink... Grandma is sitting next to
she looks over and says "oh dear, you're so pale
(then she makes the "tisk tisk" sound)

You're so pale & sickly looking. When I was your age I always had
a healthy tan"

- yeah.. I guess that would explain the skin cancer you had
hacked off your nose last month..

My husband's grandmother-

When he was dating me his grandmother said to him
"Watch out for those Italian girls.. they steal."

- Just for the record... I don't steal

Father in law-
Christmas eve party, crowded room - my allergies were bothering
me that day.. so my eyes were tearing
. Dad walks by me with beer in hand..
he stops and looks at me - I smile - then he says in the loudest voice possible

"You look like SHIT" then he walks away

- This coming from a man who wears his pants pulled up to his neck...

Mother in law-
"Talk about Italians.. we have a real life one next door"

- You don't say! A real life I - Talian? WOW!
Does the theme to the Soprano's come on every time he leaves his house??>!?!

Brother in Law-
We're at his house.. he's sitting in his recliner, his girlfriend brings
in a fork, knife & plate
for his dinner then she leaves the room..
he looks at my husband and says - "see this.."
pointing to his plate ..
"this is what's it's all about."
(meaning his wife waits on him)
"You better think about that before you get married"

(I was sitting right next to him.)

- I haven't seen my brother in law in 6 or 7 years and I'm not complaining

Mother in Law-
We're at her house for breakfast.. she made ham (jen doesn't eat ham)
the only other option
is some french toast that's practically raw in the
middle.. I ask in an ever so polite voice
"Could I just have a piece of toast?"
**Long dramatic pause** followed by Irritated Look
Mom replies..
"NO, the bread is to thick"

-ummmmm the bread is too thick?? ever hear of a fucking Knife???
SO I had to sit there and watch everyone eat... can't you feel the love?

Mother in Law-

It's Christmas - After opening many meat related gifts
(meat spice kit, meat injector, barbecue kit - did I mention I don't eat meat? - yeah)
on a side note : I always refer to this Christmas as "the year of meat"
Now It's time for the BIG gift - My mother in law hands it to us and says
"Now remember - this is for the both of you" - it was a socket set..

- Yeah, thanks a fucking bunch

Mother in Law-

It's my husbands Birthday - Mom comes over and hands him some
cupcakes - then says
"You'll have to pick the dirt out of them - they tipped
over in the car and fell on the floor"

- Are you kidding me????????

I am truly blessed
having these
special people in my life
Don't you think ?

who wants waffles?

they were good

Belgian Waffles

2 cups cake flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 cup milk
2 eggs
1/4 cup melted unsalted butter
Nonstick vegetable spray for coating waffle iron

Preheat a waffle iron. In a large bowl, stir together the dry ingredients.
Make a well in the center and add the buttermilk, milk, eggs, and melted butter.
Mix together just until combined (DON'T OVERMIX THE BATTER!).
The batter should look slightly lumpy.

Spray the waffle iron with the nonstick vegetable spray.

Pour 1/2 cup of the batter or the amount recommended by the waffle-iron maker
onto the waffle iron; bake as directed by the manufacturer.
