MISSED CONNECTION MONDAY – SLEEP STUDY

“Missed Connection Monday” is brought to you by your local Craigslist.
These are real “love notes” that strangers leave for other strangers in the ‘Personals’ section of Craigslist.
Or as I like to call it –
‘Your local serial killer hunting ground.’
NEED SLEEP TEST CANDIDATES (Boise)
Seeking sleep test candidates ages 18 and up. Pay depending on successful completion of sleep test.
This is an in-home, overnight sleep test specifically testing for…
penile erection and erectile dysfunction.
Male candidates only.

– Okay, first of all I got way too excited over this headline.
Second, was the last sentence really necessary??
Male candidates only…
You’re shitting me.
Only men can participate in a penile erection and erectile dysfunction study???

Well, what the hell?
I guess we’re going to have to have our own sleep test ladies…

Boobs That Go Bump In The Night
Specifically testing for…
***The bed eater boobs.
Those side floppers that you end up laying on and then when you try to move it feels like your bed is trying to eat you.
Maybe. That could just be me.
***Killer boobs.
You know, the ones that end up around your throat trying to strangle you in the middle of the night!
Again, could just be me.
***OR, the haunted boobs.
Boobs that get tangled around your ankles so you feel like a ghost is trying to pull your blankets off.
Definitely me.

And then we’ll add at the end.
Female candidates only.

Well, except this guy. I guess he could join the testing.
I’ve been away. Most of you know why. My sister was battling stomach cancer and with so much sadness and sorrow, I share that she lost her battle.
Your love and hugs and thoughts and prayers across the miles really has been a tremendous comfort and I thank you all for them.

Now. To the part, some of you may not understand.
I can’t be sad anymore.
I’ve been grieving for my sister for a long time and now she is gone and out of the horrific pain she was in and I know that she’s in heaven now.

I asked her to be a guardian angel to my grandbabies and my grown babies and she said she would and then she died on my daughter’s birthday.
I dreaded calling my daughter that morning but one of the nurses did a little happy dance and said, “What a wonderful birthday gift! Your daughter got a guardian angel!”
That made me feel a lit’l better.
I like to think it was my sister’s way of letting me know that she was, in fact, watching over as she said she would.

Side note: My daughter got rear-ended on her way to work shortly after I called to wish her a happy birthday and to tell her that her aunt had died.
Pretty crappy way to start a birthday BUT my daughter wasn’t injured in the accident because why???
She has her very own guardian angel!

Day one in heaven – Score one for the angels.
Okay. Well. A blog post. Hopefully, there will be more.
Thanks for stopping by.
MIMI’S QUOTE FOR THE DAY –

SO, THE OTHER DAY

I forgot to mention on my post the other day (Sunday) that my Jr. High/High School celebrity crush Paul Michael Glaser, a.k.a STARSKY turned 75 years old.
Trying super hard not to remember my dad’s 75th birthday party right now…

‘Starsky’ is the hottie on the right.

And here they both are within the last year.
Paul Michael Glaser/Starsky and David Soul/Hutch.
Still great friends after all these years.
Happy 75th Starsky! You’re still a hottie!
Trending on Twitter today is #MakeAnInsultShakespearean
I cheated and Googled a really cool translator.
My insult was – “Stupid is as stupid does.”
The Shakespearean translation was –
No more brain than stone is as no more brain than stone dost.” 

In Vulcan – “Stupid nam-tor u’ stupid tor.”
In Yodish (Yoda) – “As stupid does, stupid is.”
In Pirate – “Addled be as addled does.”

The translator I used is simply titled,
Fun Translations.’ 
  

There’s a whole list of languages and fun things you can do with language. If you’ve got a minute or two to goof around online check out that site. It is fun.
Speaking of a minute or two. That’s about all of the time I have to get this posted today!
Happy Tuesday – now Wednesday in some places.
Almost to the weekend. Who’s got plans??
I will be hitting the trails, enjoying the sunshine!
