Shit You Should Know

Fantastic Friday Five #10

Now I know some of you thought this post wasn't coming.  Shame on you for not having faith in me.  Your doubt makes me sad.
1.) It’s no secret I’m really into zombie/apocalypse stories. Recently, I started reading The Walking Dead graphic novels. Ummm, why am I just now doing this?? It has also been suggested to me that I read the book John Dies at the End by David Wong who is also a columnist for the infamous Cracked webiste. I’m on it!  I suggest you head over to The Encyclopedia of Counted Sheep (when you're done reading this lovely post of course) and read Bryan's short short zombie tale.  I'm not going to say he wrote it FOR me but I think he sort of wrote it BECAUSE of me.  Yeah, I'm kind of a big deal.

2.) Our gardens are flourishing. That is a big deal all on its own especially since it has been left in my care. Back in the fall, I had to plant some bulbs and such that came in the mail. The husband had ordered them in the spring of 2010 and now he was relying on me to get them into the ground since he was away. Well, I’m proud to announce that shit is actually growing. An iris bloomed last week and another one is getting ready to do the same.
Apparently that black thumb of mine is more of a shade of gray…or maybe I just need to wash my hands better.

3.) This post has been getting some anonymous comment love lately. It seems there is something I’m going to be sorry about. Excuse me, while I get back to sacrificing virgins and drinking the blood of babies…or something.
4.) The kids and I hit up the local Goodwill store yesterday. As I picked through an endless array of romance novels, I came across a holy grail of sorts. I snagged the Lord of the Rings trilogy in a beat up old paperback for only 75 cents!! I had Billy Mays’ voice in my head yelling, “That’s a quarter per book.” How could I pass up this deal? How could I say no to Billy? I HAD to act now!
5.) Last but certainly not least, I am happy to announce that my husband will be home for good sooner than orginally planned. He decided not to do a second year in Afghanistan. Hooray! Now, not only will may sleeping habits return to normal (hopefully) I’ll be getting laid on a fairly regular basis. Whoot, whoot! Time for me to break out into song…”I’m so excited. I just can’t hide it!”

What??  Don't judge me.  Don't you dare judge me.
Well, that's it AND you got it on Friday.  Aren't you lucky??  Have a great weekend.  I know I will.  Margaritas in my I come.


  1. Had to comment on the POST. Could not help myself.

  2. You know, this is the SECOND time I've had to read about your novel score. I think you've crossed the line into bragging....and nobody likes a bragger. :P

    While you're breaking out in song, remember to break out the OrthoTriCycline too, eh?

    And congrats on the hubs coming home. :)

  3. How did my mother end up in a comic strip? That's just weird.

  4. I just read that post...I HATE ORGANIZED RELIGION FOR THAT VERY REASON! That anonymous bastard can eat my ass! Take that holier than thou shit somewhere else and stay off my homiegirl's blog!!!

  5. I especially love your Anonymous commenter who wrote, "i can promise you wen the son of God comes back, you will regret all the words you said against Him".

    Like "wen" the son of God comes back, you will be forced to read aloud that particular post (And now, I also will have to read this comment--crap!) before we get punished.

  6. I especially liked your Anonymous commenter who wrote, "i can promise you wen the son of God comes back, you will regret all the words you said against Him."

    So "wen" the son of God comes back, i think you'll probably have to read aloud from your most sinful posts and try to talk your way out of eternal damnation and whatnot. "When I wrote this, what I MEANT to say was, uh..."

    Whoops, now I'll probably have to read this comment aloud as well. Crap.

  7. That's not your mother, Bryan. That's that awful woman that lived next door to me when I was little!

    I failed to read the Zombie Tale. I don't remember seeing it on my feed. Strange since I follow the blog...

    Hmmm...I must investigate.

    Love the kitty that has a sad!

  8. Yes, I forgot to tell you that I love your irises.

    And it's not that your thumb is black or needs to be washed. It's just a really dark shade of green that looks black if you aren't looking at it in the sunlight.

    Wasn't there a movie about a troll with a green thumb? Yes. There was. It was called A Troll in Central Park or something...

  9. @Scott So glad you've got my back.
    @K I was planning on just ripping out my uterus and calling it a day.
    @Bryan We must be related because it sort of sounds like my mom too...although she is becoming more tolerant in her old age.
    @Thundercat Thanks, girl!
    @Jill I'll start preparing my acceptance speech now.
    @Chanel Are you calling me a troll??????? lol

  10. Stopping by from Sunday's hop and am now following your blog thru GFC, Facebook and Networked Blogs. I would greatly appreciate a follow back on those also, especially Facebook and thru GFC. Thanks for your help! Have a great Sunday!


  11. I love anonymous hate comments. Every time I get one I think to myself, "Someone who is too chickenshit to put his name to his comments thinks my stuff sucks. Good. I don't need his pansy-ass self around here anyway."

  12. You now have a new follower, Can you please Follow back?

  14. Just look up "automatic confession" on You Tube...that's my translation of a funny Spanish skit about confession. It's got something like 2 million views, and judging from the comments, some people were highly offended. The comments are almost as funny as the video itself. Some people just can't take a joke! Anyway, have a great weekend, and enjoy that I want one too! :D


We have all got opinions. What are yours?
