AND WHILE WE’RE AT IT… Brain Dump

I get it. Grocery shopping is one of those necessary evils in life.
I don’t have to like it and surprise! – I don’t.
So many people don’t have their shit together at the grocery store and it’s super annoying to those of us that do.

Top of the list?
The “no list” shoppers!
They bob about aimlessly like a grocery store zombie with ZERO in their cart scanning every single shelf up n’ down every single aisle.

And speaking of aisles…
There should be a GIANT sign that reads…
People with lists.
People like me would like to get their fucking shopping done and get home.
Is it really too much to ask?
And while we’re at it…
I saw these in the cracker/cookie aisle.
Entertainment Crackers… Seriously?
There is nothing entertaining about “Entertainment Crackers” so let’s just leave those off of the holiday entertaining list.
They’re like little discs of concrete that people spread shit on and call it an
appetizer. They’re disgusting AND one bite – if you can bite it – and it’s a mess.
I don’t like messy foods especially at a party or get together.

And speaking of messy foods.
Here’s another do not add it to your entertaining list.
GIANT strawberries with that hard ass waxy chocolate shit on them!
Seriously.
Have you ever just watched people try to bite into those things???
You’d have to have a flip-top head like a fucking Pez dispenser!
Just.Say.NO!!!

Also… To the salad bringers.
NO PICKLE BUTTS EVAH!!!
I come across these in salads ALL.THE.TIME!!
No pickle butts people!
That’s my photo. See. I cut the pickle butts off then I do this really crazy thing…
I throw them the fuck away. Why??? Because they’re pickle butts.
IN OTHER NEWS –
I’ve been battling computer issues for most of the day. Specifically, my printer. It’s not even a year old. The ink is new, I ran all of the tests, removed and reinstalled and it still won’t print in black. I had this problem once before and I can’t remember what the fix was.
Whatevs… I’ll try again tomorrow.
Cleaning up my craft area today and I realize I have at least 4 glue guns and a MILLION glue sticks!
Also, a BAZILLION buttons!!!
It’s confirmed. Yes, I do have S.T.A.B.L.E Syndrome.
Altho truth be told. I’d much rather have Stabler syndrome…
Totally miss this guy.
Holy crap what a nonsensical brain dump. All my complaining about shit I almost forgot it’s ‘Thankful Thursday.’
3 things I’m thankful for today.
– This blog so I can bitch n’ moan.
– Buttons because ya’ never know when you might need one or a bazillion
– Water because it’s good to be hydrated!
I hope you’re all having a great day. One more day til the weekend!
I’ll be spending my weekend sewing. At least that’s my plan but plans are always subject to change.
MIMI’S THOUGHT FOR THE DAY –
Be well.

THANKFUL THIRSTY THRUSTY THURSDAY!

It’s ‘Thankful Thursday’ and also ‘Thirsty Thursday.’
Coincidence? I think not.
PSSST: I have no idea why “thrusty” is in the title of this post.
QUESTION: Is it too early to be partaking in ‘Thirsty Thursday?’
Asking for a friend….

Today I am thankful for air conditioning.
And vodka!
Yesterday was my vodka slushie day! Watermelon! My fave!
What a refreshing way to beat the heat!
It may be a vodka slushie day today as well…
It may have already started…
Sooooo, what are yous guys thankful for today and every day or just today???
What’s your favorite drink on tap for “Thirsty Thursday?”

Is it hot where you are??? I’m not complaining. I’m so happy to see the sun and be out of that 5th season of,
“time to find fucking Noah…”

Again, the weekend is upon us.
Who’s got plans?
I will be downtown at the Pride parade giving out free mom hugs to the kids whose parents disowned them, kicked them out, etc., after they told them they were gay/lesbian/trans.
Fucking assholes. So much for unconditional love.
Two of the beautiful souls that are my “pride” and joy.
My son (right) and his partner. Wonderful, kind, loving, intelligent humans loving each other, loving life and lucky me, they love me too!
MIMI’S THOUGHT FOR THE DAY –
Time – 11:14am
Temp – HOT!
Mood – Lazy… Hot days just zap me sometimes.
Bitch, bitch, bitch – Zero but it’s early, it’s hot and I may be running low on vodka.
Best thing – Life
Be well.

THANKFUL THURSDAY – The neighbor edition

I’m thankful that I did not go full bore psycho bitch on my “sort of neighbor” in the next building over when I found my patio chairs on her patio and I thought she had stolen them.

I’m thankful that this “sort of neighbor” did not answer the door when I went over to go full bore psycho bitch in her face for stealing my chairs.
Also. There would have been a huge language barrier and then I would’ve gone full bore American on her too!
I’m thankful that this “sort of neighbor” is now – courtesy of management –
fully aware that what may be considered borrowing in her country is fucking stealing in ours!

I’m thankful that the kids and their father from next door who took stole my chairs and hauled them over to my “sort of neighbor” because hey, that’s their friend and apparently they just thought they could take my shit and visit a while???
Yeah. I’m thankful they moved the fuck out.
I’m thankful that one of our upstairs neighbors also moved out. They played shitty music and walked around barefoot everywhere and tho it’s no business of mine I just thought it was gross.
Ugh….
Those are my thankful thoughts for the day. How ’bout you?
What are you thankful for?

Raise your hand if you’re in an area where you’re thankful for non-stop rain.
Yeah… Not me. I used to miss the fact that Idaho very little rain but after a month in rainy Michigan and now since I’ve been back every day it’s raining???
A little break would be nice.
MIMI’S THOUGHT FOR THE DAY –
Time – 5:36pm
Temp – 68 degrees F/ High 74 – I’m guessing we won’t be reaching that high…
Mood – Sad
Bitch, bitch, bitch – Wasting time on stupid movies.
Best thing – Phone call from my daughter.
Be well.

THANKFUL THURSDAY – ALL AT ONCE

In 2 days we will usher in autumn. It hardly seems possible because I know I was just sweating away ten pounds a day with all of the flippin’ heat we’ve had!
And still, it did nothing for my fat ass.
So, with a kiss and a smile or a kick in the pants and a shove down the stairs – most likely the latter. –
I wave goodbye to all things summer 2 days early and with that, I begin my “thankful” list.
#1 – I am thankful that I’ll be able to see again after all of the summer eye bleaching moments I experienced.

Okay, maybe not this exactly but pretty close.
#2 – I’m thankful that the cooler temps of fall will make other people’s deodorant appear as tho it’s actually working.
#3 – I’m thankful that everywhere I go now it will smell like pies and cookies baking!
I am soooo serious about this thankful list.
The number of people wandering around in dental floss when what they really needed was a circus tent was astounding!
It’s like they all got dressed in the dark!
disclaimer: I’m not “fat shaming” I’m just saying. Try putting on a bathing suit that fits.

And the stinky, sweaty, smelling people that seemed to always be in line right in front of me or right behind me??? Ugh. Seriously? Do you have nasal issues?? You can’t smell your own funk??
Sadly, there aren’t enough pumpkin spiced candles or pies to be baked that can get rid of the funk.
I just went over my thankful list and just in case you were wondering if it’s possible to be bitchy and thankful at the same time. It is.

I hope you have much to be thankful for today even if it’s bitchy thanks.
You know I always want to hear about it so drop your thankfuls in the comments below and have an amazing ‘Thankful Thursday!’

THANKFUL THURSDAY

I am thankful for modern medicine.
I, however, still cannot pronounce that word! Tomorrow we will mark week #2 with my sister’s chemo and radiation and so far so GREAT. My sister looks amazing and she really isn’t slowing down much at all. Her blood work always comes back phenomenally well so I am very, very hopeful!

My sister was diagnosed with stage 2 gastroesophageal junction (GEJ) cancer. Current treatment is chemo and radiation with surgery to follow. Fingers, eyes, and toes all crossed that all of those treatments and surgeries do their thing!
daisy lineAI am thankful to be able to care for my sister as she travels this wretched journey. Of course, as all of you know, it’s all about the laughter for me. Keeping it upbeat and always on that positive note!
I don’t know if this is true but it sure helps!
I am thankful for travel mugs because hospital coffee is HIDEOUS!
I think Dan makes the coffee up at the hospital!
I am thankful for my faith in God, His Son, Jesus Christ and our Beloved Mother Mary. For family to pick up the ball of laughter when I have dropped it and for my beautiful, thoughtful, always so unselfish friend, Miranda, whose love and giving knows no depth.
daisy lineAWithout these blessings in my life, I would surely be lost.
I am thankful for all of you out there in the big wide world of all things blogging. Thank you for reading and listening and following along even when I have lost my umph for blogging.
