Titlefree!

Took the sprogs to see Wallace & Gromit: Curse of the Were-Rabbit this afternoon. Pretty cute movie. It'll have a home here when it comes out on DVD.

Sweety and I went saw The Ringer a couple of weeks ago. It wasn't as tacky as I thought a movie would be about some guy who was trying to cheat the Special Olympics. Not gonna win any awards though.

I traded working today for tomorrow. I guess it was going to be slow at work today due to MiLK day so we were given the option of being off today and getting 8 hours of vacation time to use later if we'd work tomorrow. You can never hoard up enough vacation.

Blogger comments are going nutty on me again. For the last couple of weeks I haven't been getting an email telling me when I get a comment and when I leave comments I get an email telling me it wasn't delivered. In a few weeks my mailbox will probably be crammed full of those emails that are lost in space right now. But it's okay Blogger, I love you because you're free.

When BB's beloved Indianapolis Colts lost the football game on Sunday I thought he was going to spaz out and fall into a coma. The loss prompted him to take his Colts hat off for the first time in a month.

I have about the same fondness for the internet that BB has for his football team. I'm not on the computer all the time but it's nice to know the internet is waiting for me to connect to it.

Sweety brought me 2 surprises yesterday! Flowers in a glittery vase and some orange Tic-Tacs. I love orange Tic-Tacs. I hide them til they get old (because they're nice and chewy when they're old) and then eat them later. Kinda like an alligator burying it's food til it's good and rotten and soft.

I'm having some buyer's remorse today. On my lunch break yesterday I bought a ring. One of those things that are marketed as "right hand rings". I already have one of those (I got it during my divorce 5 years ago and called it my "i don't need a damn man" ring) but I thought this was pretty too. But after wearing it I've decided I can live without it. It's a pretty common design and it's not as sparkly as the one I already have. I'll just stick with what I've already got. It's freaking huge and gaudy but I like that I haven't seen one like it and that I got it before the phrase "right hand ring" had been coined. And sometimes when I look at it I'm reminded of the look on my exhusband's face when he saw it when we were getting our divorce finalized. Priceless.

The concrete stuff has been poured in for the pool! That was done on Saturday. I'll be glad when it's all done and the backyard isn't a construction zone. I can't wait to see if the canines have sea legs.

You know what I hate? When someone's on the phone with you and they keep sucking snot. Blow your nose or eat the shit, agh!

The sleepies are assaulting me. Gonna fold some clothes and try to perk up before the husband gets home.

Nothing wrong with huge, gaudy rings.

Ahh, my poor Colts.

Anyway, I've been having the same problem with blogger emails lately, too. Only two emails have come through in the last week for me. I'm wondering if it's AOL blocking the [No reply] emails, but I can't find a setting that's turned on that would do that.

I sent an email to blogger support...I ought to be retired by the time they reply.

knock on wood...I have not had any trouble with my comments...yet.

(patting haloscan in my hip pocket....)

shannon said...

i've had the same problems, but when i go to check the comment section whose blog it tells me that it couldn't be delivered to, it's there. WTF?

Chickie said...

Anne Arkham - That's what I've decided. It really compliments my bathrobe too.

Kyuball - I had the problem with getting no emails from Blogger awhile back but after a few weeks I got all of them at once. I don't think anyone really works at Blogger Support.

Scotty Isaac - I'd like to go to Haloscan but I hate to lose the comments that are already here.

Shannon - Exactly! I got an email today telling me a comment I made several days ago wasn't delivered but it's there. Blogger is possessed.

In olden times (last February/March) I switched from Bloger comments to HaloScan and transferred all of the comments. I did the same thing when we got got our own domain. Some of the comments on our current blog are from Blogger and some are from HaloScan. Its not easy but you can keep your comments if you wish.

Sasha said...

ewww! i hate when people do that on the phone... i agree, blow your nose or eat it!

Monkey said...

I bought a right hand ring after my divorce too! I didn't know it was called that.

I still wear it now that I'm remarried, to remind myself that I married myself back then.

The Were Rabbit was great, but the rabbit himself scared our 6 year old. He's got quite the imagination. No matter how much we told him the rabbit only ate vegetables, he would not be comforted.

FYI-I tried to send you and e-mail the other day (I think it was Friday) and it came back "undelivered".

Chickie said...

MCB - I didn't realize the comments could be moved. I may do that. And that way I could get rid of any old spam that's lurking around.

Sasha - People are just freaking gross sometimes. My favorite was talking to some guy while he was taking a shit. That was some wonderful background noise.

Monkey - I think they started the whole right hand ring thing a few years ago just to try and give women and excuse to buy their own jewelry.

There were some little kids in the theater that were freaked out by the were-rabbit too.

Michael - Thanks for the heads up. I'm gonna go check all my aol settings and see if maybe I'm part of the problem!

I hate more than anything when someone takes a piss while on the phone with me. Um, I can hear you peeing!!

"Took the sprogs" sounds like a lewd sexual act.

Bonanza Jellybean said...

"Don't Need a Damn Man Ring"

That's a marketing idea if I ever heard one. Forget all the "right hand ring" nonsense!!!

bekah said...

GO STEELERS!

COLTS SUCK! STEELERS RULE!

FUCK YOU, PEYTON!

(Actually, I love Peyton very much, and he's on my Future Husbands list - number three, if you're interested - but I'm a diehard Steelers fan - because of my current husband - and until I'm married to Peyton, will remain a Steeler's fan.)

Zube Girl said...

I LOVE the idea of an "I don't need a damn man, ring." Actually, I love rings, period. I have five. And I'm looking for the perfect sixth. Because for some reason I'm hell bent on having more of my fingers ringed than not.

Chickie said...

Kat - Go big or go home, that's my motto.

Armaedes - And now that you say that I have a sick picture in my head.

Bonanza Jellybean - Maybe I'll approach the jewelry store with that idea for a campaign.

Bekah - Damn, there's no middle ground with you, is there? :)

Zube Girl - I just love shiny stuff. If tinfoil is wadded up just right, I like looking at it.

bekah said...

Who needs a middle ground when you're bipolar?

Chickie said...

Bekah - Whoa, you're to quick for me today!
