GEE THANKS HONEY....YOU'RE A HELL OF A HELPER..
The 2 eldest Nutz Kidz are attending Vacation Bible School this week at our church. Tomorrow night they'll have some sort of contest pertaining to the theme which is The Arctic Edge if you haven't already figured it out by the picture. This means that the kidz need to dress up like explorers or arctic animals etc...I asked hubby if he had any ideas....well, you know he did. His solution?
CUT HOLES FOR ARMS & HEAD IN THIS (it's a pillowcase):
And call it "what it is"
An ice cube...y'all got any ideas? As you can tell ---I need them!
Since we were running so late for VBS (next post will explain) Hubby had another brilliant idea. He told the kidz to just wear what they had on and tell everyone they were tourists....However, kidz came up with the following costume....Nicklaus was a hunter, head to toe camo,BB gun taped so know one could "accidentally" fire it, if you notice Nicklaus is pointing the BARREL at Noni (gun safety at ALL times) and holding a bear cub. Noni is wearing a mother bear, (I had this in the closet, brand new never worn) trying to protect her cub.....pretty ingenious idea, I say!!<br>
Fly High Acidman....my prayers are with you!!

This Cartoon Says It All....
I'LL NEVER FORGET THE ACIDMAN!
1) I'll always remember how awesome it was when I got mentioned and linked to on the Acidman's Blog, Gut Rumbles. It was cause for celebration! Once my hubby came home and noticed the wonderful mood I was in. He said, "Let me guess, you got linked on Rob's site again?" The goofy grin I gave said it all.
2) I'll always remember how much fun it was meeting Rob, Sam and Stacey for drinks at a biker bar. I'll also never forget the pictures with the one I call "Biker Santa Claus" and Rob called "Troll." Just for the record, Rob did not like the biker bar.
3) I'll always remember how much he loved his Lil' Stormcloud, Sam & her significant other Stacey. The one and only time I pissed the Big Guy off, (No, not God, Rob, I've pissed God off wayyy more) was when he took a comment I made about Stacey the wrong way. Sam cleared it up though. One note of interest, Stacey is also known as , "the best thing that's ever happened to Sam."
4) I'll always remember how much he loved and missed Quinton. Rob would attend Quinton's ball games, never knowing if he'd even get to talk to him. He cheered with all of his heart for his boy.
5) I'll always remember how I called once a week just to check up on him. Although he "hated the damn telephone," we had quite a few long conversations. I learned a lot from Rob. My hubby said it best a while back, "Some people open their mouth and you know they are full of shit. When Rob starts talking you'd better kick back and listen cuz' you'll learn something." I did.
6) I'll always remember how he'd never get pissed at me for using one of my dad's sayings on him. I'd always tell him that we were praying for him," he needed the prayers, we needed the practice." He never once cussed me out, in fact, I almost always got a classic A-man chuckle and a "Thank ya darlin'" too boot.
7) I'll always remember how much I couldn't wait to move into our new house so when Sam and Stacey came down they could all come over and shoot those guns Rob didn't have and "blow shit up." Just a side note, that's another reason Rob loved the hell outta Stacey...she loves blowing shit up.
8) I'll always remember we never went and got that "Salad in a Glass" (a.k.a. Bloody Mary) he'd promised me from the Exchange Tavern. This was changed to just a salad after rehab.
9) I'll always remember how much I just wanted to scream, "No...don't tell me" when Sam called me and was crying. I knew before she spoke and I didn't want to.
10) I'll always remember what a HUGE Gawja Bulldogs fan he was. Hence the color of the banner up top. Westerns and playing music were also his passions. We all know how great of a writer he was.
11) I'll always remember before Rob went to Costa Rica for the last time, I asked him if I dropped some money off could he pick up some foreign money for Nicklaus, my 10 year old, his reply? "Hell, I've got a shitload of that here, c'mon on by and get some. I never did.
I hope that wherever you are Rob that you have sandy beaches, cool wind in your face, an unlimited supply of that fancy imported beer you loved so much and all the Costa Rican Ladies of the Evening you can shake a Roscoe at. Take care A-man...I love ya!
I'll always remember what a truly wonderful person you were. Even if you tried to be a hardass. Those who knew the "real" Acidman know he was a giving spirit that got taken one too many times.
I Will Miss Talking To You, Learning From You and Reading Your Words...
Dear Boobie Fairy,

Five Things I've Learned Since Having Kidz
** When your child reaches the toddler stage at some point you will turn into some cheerful human and sound like a deranged winner of the friggin' Publisher's Clearing House Sweepstakes. The reason for such excitement? Well it ain't Ed McMahon. It means your toddler has picked up ONE block and returned it to the toy box. The general idea is: If I cheer loud enough said toddler will continue picking up their toys. They do not.
***At some point the thought of eating a well balanced meal will fly out the window and you will look like someone in a thirld world country that does not know when you will eat again. How so? You will see nothing wrong with finishing off that last bit of mac and cheese, hot dog, soup, crackers, green beans, etc...that your kid has left on their plate. Some call them scraps, I call them an impromptu prix fixe dinner.
**** It is entirely possible to talk on your cell phone (via earpiece) drive the speed limit, change the radio station, and knock the shit outta a passenger in the back seat.
*****Threaten to bodily harm, maim or kill another person and have no fear of being prosecuted for terroristic threats. I once had been pushed beyond all belief and told my eldest: If you don't shut up I am going to kill you...then I will be on Death Row and be executed....how would you feel then? To which he replied, "Well, you'd be dead so I know you wouldn't feel anything." Smart ass, I have no idea where he gets that. You?
I HAVE A FAVOR TO ASK OF Y'ALL
...thanks a bunch!!!
5 THINGS I'VE LEARNED SINCE I WAS PREGNANT AND/OR HAD KIDZ

Mom: Your what?
Nicklaus: You know...my....Phoenix.....

Clerk Gets 6 Months for Soda Urination
From Associated Press
June 22, 2006 4:13 PM EDT
DELAND, Fla. - A former convenience store clerk who urinated in a bottle of soda that was later drunk by a customer was sentenced Thursday to six months in jail.
Anthony Mesa, 22, has already served half his sentence since pleading no contest to tampering with a consumer product, and will remain on a form of house arrest for two years after release. He had faced up to 30 years in jail.
Circuit Judge James R. Clayton withheld adjudication on the case, which means Mesa will not be considered a convicted felon if he abides by the sentence.
Mesa was working at a Pix store in Deltona in August when he and a co-worker decided to play practical jokes. They put eggs in beer cartons, and Mesa thought it would be funny to urinate into a drink, according to arrest reports.
He admitted urinating into a Mountain Dew and placing it back into the refrigerator, authorities said.
The victim, a foreman with a Daytona Beach construction company, became suspicious of the drink after he chugged it and vomited three or four times. He settled a civil complaint with the store for an undisclosed amount of money before a lawsuit was filed.

Know where clean underwear and socks are at all times? I mean how many times can one woman say, "They are in the damn dryer, sort through and find some...before the tenants in this house get a clue?
Be responsible for the feeding of all members of said household? How hard is it to spread some peanut butter on a damn piece of bread, really?
Know at all times where all beep-beeps, wrestling action figures and Barbie dolls are located? Hello....do I play with them? Let's think about that, shall we? Hell no.
Where is it decreed that I must change a crappy Pull-up once every two hours, every day, for the rest of my life?

Geriatric Murder Trial Starts
ATLANTA (AP) -- Jury selection began today in Atlanta for a 79-year-old woman accused of fatally shooting an 85-year-old ex-boyfriend at their senior citizens home.But prosecutors might have a hard time finding a jury of peers for Lena Sims Driskell. She is nearly a decade older than the legal age for exemption as a juror in Georgia, which is 70.Of the 58 potential jurors at the start of jury selection, all but five appeared to be younger than 65. A list of the potential jurors' ages was not immediately available.Driskell is accused of killing Herman Winslow last June as he sat reading a newspaper. Police said Driskell became angry after Winslow broke off their relationship and started seeing another woman.Deborah Poole, Driskell's attorney, said her client is being deprived of her constitutional right to a fair trial because she will not be judged by a jury of her peers.Jennifer Lawson, the Superior Court jury clerk in Fulton County, said that while senior citizens are not excluded from jury service, any person 70 or older may be excused from jury duty with the submission of an age affidavit.Opening statements in the trial could begin tomorrow. The trial is expected last no more than three days.

Batwoman Is Back as a Lesbian
By LARRY McSHANE
NEW YORK (May 31) - Years after she first emerged from the Batcave, Batwoman is coming out of the closet. DC Comics is resurrecting the classic comic book character as a lesbian, unveiling the new Batwoman in July as part of an ongoing weekly series that began this year.
The 5-foot-10 superhero comes with flowing red hair, knee-high red boots with spiked heels, and a form-fitting black outfit.
"We decided to give her a different point of view," explained Dan DiDio, vice president and executive editor at DC. "We wanted to make her a more unique personality than others in the Bat-family. That's one of the reasons we went in this direction."
The original Batwoman was started in 1956, and killed off in 1979. The new character will share the same name as her original alter ego, Kathy Kane. And the new Batwoman arrives with ties to others in the Gotham City world.
"She's a socialite from Gotham high society," DiDio said. "She has some past connection with Bruce Wayne. And she's also had a past love affair with one of our lead characters, Renee Montoya."
Montoya, in the "52" comic book series, is a former police detective. Wayne, of course, is Batman's true identity - but he has disappeared, along with Superman and Wonder Woman, leaving Gotham a more dangerous place.
The "52" series is a collaboration of four acclaimed writers, with one episode per week for one year. The comics will introduce other diverse characters as the story plays out.
"This is not just about having a gay character," DiDio said. "We're trying for overall diversity in the DC universe. We have strong African-American, Hispanic and Asian characters. We're trying to get a better cross-section of our readership and the world."
The outing of Batwoman created a furor of opinions on Web sites devoted to DC Comics. Opinions ranged from outrage to approval. Others took a more tongue-in-cheek approach to the announcement. "Wouldn't ugly people as heroes be more groundbreaking?" asked one poster. "You know, 200-pound woman, man with horseshoe hair loss pattern, people with cold sores, etc.?"
DiDio asked that people wait until the new Batwoman's appearance in the series before they pass judgment.
"You know what? Judge us by the story and character we create," he said. "We are confident that we are telling a great story with a strong, complex character."
DiDio spent most of the morning fielding phone calls from media intrigued by the Batwoman reinvention.
"It's kind of weird," he said. "We had a feeling it would attract some attention, but we're a little surprised it did this much."
Personally I could care less if Batwoman prefers Starkist over Oscar Meyer ...long as she kicks ass.
THIS MUST HAVE SEEMED RATIONAL AT THE TIME...RIGHT?
KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (May 30)
The 41-year-old man, who was not identified, got into an argument last Friday with his wife, who found a text message on his mobile phone from another woman. The man was heard by his son shouting that he wanted to prove he was not having an affair, the New Straits Times reported.
The assertion was followed by loud screams and the man emerged from his room bleeding profusely, his 14-year-old son quoted as saying. His wife rushed him to hospital.
OH DEAR GOD..SHE'S SPAWNING AGAIN!
