One of the mysteries of life is that a two pound box of chocolates can make you gain five pounds.

The reason women over 50 don't have babies is because we would put them down and forget where we put them.

It's time to give up jogging for your health when your thighs keep rubbing together and starting your pants on fire.

What happens if you confuse your Valium with your birth control pills?
You have 12 kids, but you don't really care.

Skinny people bug me. They say things like, "Sometimes I forget to eat." Now, I've forgotten my keys, my glasses, my address and my mother's maiden name. But I have never forgotten to eat! You have to be a special kind of stupid to forget to eat!

What is the best way to forget your troubles? Wear tight clothes.

Why is it harder to lose weight as you get older? Because by that time your body and your fat have become really good friends.

My mind doesn't wander, it leaves completely.

What happens when you leave an outfit hanging in your closet for a while? I shrinks two sizes.

It's nice to live in a small town, because if you don't know what you are doing, someone else does.

I read some article which said that the symptoms of stress are impulse buying, eating too much and driving too fast. Are they kidding? That's what I call a perfect day.

HA, HA, HA, those funnies made my day, Bernie!!! BOY can I identify with lots of em!

Lori, yeah that DOTD is super cool, reminding us of MonkeyDey AND MR. Big!!! No likker for me today though....but will sit and look at those dwinks! LOL.

Doing good, ladies! Got home around 9:30, slept till 2:30! Dunno why I had to be there at 5:30am, as he scheduled FOUR of us for 7am, and of course even though I arrived first (5:15), I was last on the schedule. But DH ran into a buddy he used to work with and travel with, his wife was having same thing as I was, so they got to chat the entire time. I DID picture all of you there, as I was next to some lockers (in bed) while waiting to go to the OR (and lala land)....had not had lala land shot yet, so was thinking normally (as normal as I can...lol). Anyway I pictured all you HTL loungettes having a party in the lockers!!!

Thanks for all the love and caing! Now I can't wait to hear how Dorkiepoo's appt went, and hope she and ScoobyDoo get to meet up today!!!

Lubs and Hugs,

NM, When you wrote "DorKable-Pati o'furniture??????  I never would have guess that one! ",I think she was writing it dat way, cuz of how we write tings around heah! I think the way it usually is written is "Patty 'O Furniture"...does that make it clearer? Still hard one to guess though, but I think its really cute! Repeated it to my DH and he thought I had "lost it"! LOL. Hope you can ketchup on all that sleep you missed!!!! While I am typing this, DH is calling the Surgery Center AGAIN to see if the dr dictated my procedure from 2-10, yet!! Aaaarrrggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhh....doesn't sound like he did it yet.

Karen, So glad your DD had such a nice birthday....and you have every right to be proud to be her mama!

LOL Mema, I didn't mean I wrote "purty" instead of "purdy", but that I said that I "feel purty" when I meant "I feel purty good"! Don't weally feel purty at all!! Yuppers, wese is "some ol' shoes"....dat is sooo funnneeeee! I got onto DH for leaving me the lortab (hydrocodone) and NOT reminding me to take it with food. He thought I would remember the nurse telling me that in recovery....WTH??? Didn't he realize I was so out of it then???? Silly men! Starting to wear off a bit, but still feel horrid with it. Pain was only starting, I am sure now that tylenol would have taken care of it.

Lisa, SO hate to hear that the effexor is making you feel bad....but now that is on the prev page, and I forget what you said about it. Hoping you can sleep well tonight (without the darn hot flashes keeping you up), and that you will feel so much better tomorrow. Did you get to meet Dotty today?

Mema, So glad you and Lori will get to have 1 dwink together...hope someone can take a pic of you both having a toast! That will be awesome.

Karen, that wine doesn't even sound good to me right now....but tomorrow night is another story!

Still waiting to hear from AdorKable....are you okay????

Hugs to all.....

 Edited to ad my post! Had it in word, and foygot to include it!!!!

Sue, of course, at least 1 dwink. In fact I really don't think 2 would hurt either!!!! 11 in da morning sounds great, it's a date! I git so furcited when we talk about it. I believe the Effexor is an anti depressant, but is prescribed for those damned hot flashes. An ole shoes you ain't!

Raquelle, you IS too purdy/purty and you AIN'T no ole shoe eeder. Kathy, if that shot is only s'pose ta work for 3 months, how the heck did you go 3 years? Hope you are feeling better today and pain free.

Karen, glad your daughter had a wunnerful B-day.

NM, you get caught up on your sleep?

Oh, I see now Beans, you were looking for sumpin else, and dere wuz dat stool. I tell ya, it was meant to be!!!! And besides duck farts, corn poopies and kilt stools, we have cop porn too! And eat our Cheerios wif wodka. No wonder Charles didn't come back. Biggest storm worry for us is hail, as it could do some major damage to our solar panels. You iz so sweet to say that I was one who hepped you, tank ewe, along wif Kathy, HD, NM and don't foyget Junie, I know she hepped you too, cuz she hepped all of us, her wuz so funny! We miss her so much. You helps me too, cuz you iz one funny lady too, and I always look forward to your posts and pictures. And good grief, you iz not ole shoes eeder. Wus wong wif you ladies! Wowsa, on your contest wif DH...........I am rooting for da Beans. GO BEANS, GO BEANS.

OHHHHHH Kathy, that Lortab does dat to me. Makes me dizzy, I throw up, etc. You couldn't PAY me to take that. I would rather hurt. But TOO FUNNY ‘bout da green chit, LMAO!!!!!

Dorkable, sawry you hab to wait 3 more weeks, but weese hafta do what is best. Are you still in a lot of pain? What about you and ScubZ, did ya's get some of dat face time?

Hope dis one lasts a long time, not 3 mo like dat udder gal I met. The nurse said it could help in a day or two, or take up to 2 wks. Dats why she said to take da lortab wid me...no way, though. Apparently affects me like it does you...but there are 2 strengths (at least), and I had the lower strength, but was prescribed the higher strength. Guess it helps more if you take it on a full tummy. BUT I don't wanna twy it again!!! Not too sore today.  Tanx for your WUNNERFUL post!!!! Hugs! Kat

Good morning, Loungettes! Had to run into town for a meeting this am, went and got the boards I need to finish the shelves in the closet. Hope to get that done before my eye doc appointment this afternoon. We are officially having a heat wave here, and it is GORGEOUS! 67 degrees right now. Gonna check the garden later or tomorrow to see if it's dry enough to start working in. And some tomato seeds I started have come up! Yeah Spring!!!


Goldie--I've already found a bunch of doc rating sites, and am finding more every time I look. Great idea! Love the looks of the banana drink. I take it we can now call Mr Big Mr. Banana?


DorKable--I slept most of the day yesterday, feel like I've lost a day. PM coming when I get done with this ketchup post, and thanks for the help!

Bernie--LOL!

Wahine--Gotta love the scheduling games the docs play, don't you? Makes me a bit testy that I have to get there 2 hours before the scheduled time so THEY don't have to wait for ME. Um, I am hiring you, you should be catering to me! I got the Pati o'furniture, it wasn't the spelling it was that I would NEVER have thought of that!

I'm available to help anyone and everyone with dwinkies. I'm going to help with the dwinkies even if no one needs any help!


Mema--I'm caught up now, I just do not recover from middle of the night call outs like I used to!

Karen--belated happy b-day to the DD!


Beanie--it's hard playing ketchup in here, isn't it? But I'm too nosey to cope with skipping over anything!

DorKable--glad to hear from you!

OH MY, not sure if y'all even want to know what Kopi Luwak is! It's a coffee....of sorts! But also has to do with poop!

NM - You asked!

I will post the Wikipedia version of it, read at your own will!

Kopi luwak (Indonesian pronunciation: [ˈkopi ˈlu.aʔ]), or civet coffee, is one of the world's most expensive and low-production varieties of coffee. It is made from the beans of coffee berries which have been eaten by the Asian Palm Civet (Paradoxurus hermaphroditus) and other related civets, then passed through its digestive tract.[1] A civet eats the berries for their fleshy pulp. In its stomach, proteolytic enzymes seep into the beans, making shorter peptides and more free amino acids. Passing through a civet's intestines the beans are then defecated, keeping their shape. After gathering, thorough washing, sun drying, light roasting and brewing, these beans yield an aromatic coffee with much less bitterness.[citation needed] This coffee was widely noted as the most expensive coffee in the world with prices reaching $160 per pound.[2] Since then Uchunari grade 0 coffee has been introduced on the international coffee market.

Kopi luwak is produced mainly on the islands of Sumatra, Java, Bali and Sulawesi in the Indonesian Archipelago. It is also produced in the Philippines (where the product is called motit coffee in the Cordillera, kape alamid in Tagalog areas) and also produced in East Timur (where it is called kafé-laku). Weasel coffee is a loose English translation of its Vietnamese name cà phê Chồn, where popular, chemically simulated versions are also produced. However, Vietnam has 2 farms with 300 wild civets in Dak Lak. The farmers collect the coffee seeds and produce only 300 kg of authentic vietnamese chon coffee. The civets live in the wild and are fed beef. The processed civet beans are imported to the UK to the farmers' sole UK supplier.

This would be the Asian Palm Civet

OK, Civet Coffee I have heard of!  One of the items on my bucket list is to have a cup of Civet Coffee.  I started with buying a pound of the beans, but figured I'd never be rich enough for that.
