Nothing Much

It's 8:30 a.m. and I've already consumed 2 ice cream sandwiches. Just wanted to get that off my chest.

This morning I scared the hell out of Sweety. He got up to go to work at 5 a.m. and I just had a feeling that he would have to turn around and come back home so I stood (in the dark and eating an ice cream sandwich) by the door in the kitchen and yelled at him when he opened the door. The look on his face was priceless. Total and complete shock. I'm glad he didn't have a heart attack.

BigBrother hid in the pantry a couple of weeks ago and scared me when he jumped out. He's been warned that he is on my list of people to do something horrible to and that he'll just have to suck it up whenever I get him back. I'm planning on doing something that he will remember as a defining moment in his childhood. I'll put some money in his therapy fund to make up for it.

We are still Christmas treeless. We went to the stores that sell live trees last night and they didn't have any! Sweety has a theory that fake trees cause divorce so he didn't want to get one but we might have to. I see that Midwestern City Boy & California Girl have a nice looking fake tree up - maybe I'll point that out to Sweety as an exception to his "fake trees = doom" theory. Hey Sweety! Maybe fake trees lead to lots of sex!

I haven't done any Christmas shopping yet. I pretty much know what I'm getting for people and plan on fighting the masses at the mall this weekend to get it all done. I like buying things for people but I despise all of the freaking people that are everywhere at this time of year. I've discovered that if I look at the floor and talk to myself as I'm walking around stores that people usually give me space.

I would hate to be BB and have you scheming to get me back. Seriously. That kid obviously does NOT know who he's dealing with here. You're a crazy person! I can't wait to hear how you "get" him. LOL.

Becky - We're gonna have to meet up the next time I'm in Texas!

Joey Polanski - I'm glad that you've given me a valid reason to eat two more.

Bekah - He knows I'm crazy and that's why he's been a nervous wreck for the past 2 weeks. It's fun to see how jumpy he is now while he waits.

That is a perfect looking tree over at that couple's place...! Ice Cream sandwishes...YUMMY, Chickie!
You are smart to know exactly what you want to get everyone...I almost never know! (lol)

BTW: I had never heard that about Vaseline! I'll have to try that...he certainly doesn't like the Hairball Medicine...UGH! Thanks for the advice.

My dad was the world's greatest at scaring people. He was devious and diabolical and some of his tactics bordered on maniacal.

I have all of my Christmas shopping done for the year. Well, at least I think my wife has it all done.

My dad was great at scaring people. He took great delight in it and so far, I haven't needed therapy.

On second thought, maybe I do.

On a lighter note, all of my Christmas shopping is done. Or at least I think my wife got it all done.

Chickie said...

OOLOTH - I hope the Vaseline works for him! I'd had to be a hairy cat.

Debra - Amen to that!

Patti_Cake - I like thrill rides but I don't like being scared as a prank. It gives me heartburn.

Mike - How odd. I swear your comment wasn't up last night when I was replying!

I get my fondness for scaring people from my Dad. He was a fan of pouring cold water on shower goers and of smearing Vaseline on the toilet seat. There were many times that I almost killed myself slipping off the toilet.

I actually read this the other day and blogger wasn't letting me log in. But, this is freaking hilarious!!

Any type of tree leads to lots of sex so long as the kids are out of the house and you dress up as a sexy Santa.

I don't worry about getting all of my shopping done until the the final weekend before Christmas. Until then I feel like I have plenty of time.

Amy - Blogger hasn't been very easy for me to deal with so far as leaving comments either.

Midwestern City Boy - I'm always out shopping right up til the stores close for Christmas!
