Random drivel.

.

I don’t usually pay attention to the Facebook memories section, but this one from an old blog friend popped up the other day and I had to laugh.

.

.

It really does.

🤣

.

.

That sounds simple and delicious.

If you try it before me? Let me know.

.

And for Brian at http://brianlageose.blog

Because we were chatting a while back about the ridiculous old station wagons we had to drive as teenagers. Here’s my husband and I posing in front of my parent’s ‘62 Ford Falcon.

Complete with wood on the side… because we stylin’.

.

.

If you look closely you’ll see the entire passenger side is crumpled from me side swiping a telephone pole when I was 16.

Oops.

This baby had a top speed of 51mph by the time I got her…. complete with vacuum wipers, a manual choke, and AM radio. I was the envy of exactly (count ‘em) none of my friends.

Please don’t judge the head to toe stone washed denim… it was the late 80’s. We had to.

.

Finally, here’s Lord Dudley…

.

.

In typical goober mode.

.

.

He should, but thank God he can’t.

.

Cosmopolitan Hell

.

Apologies to my male readers, but it’s that time again. Time to question why anyone in their right mind reads this magazine.

This months issue of the gift that keeps on giving (whether I want it to or not) includes a discussion on bathing suit thongs.

.

.

Please feel free to weigh in.

.

.

Sphincter dental floss. Not likely to erase that mental image for the rest of the day are you?

.

.

Eww. While I’m technically not against the trend…. I never thought of that!

.

.

Less wedgie potentially? It’s specifically designed to be a wedgie. Your argument is invalid.

This next article made even me look twice.

Last chance guys…. if you don’t leave now I won’t be held responsible.

.

.

I did warn you.

.

.

If it’s that common, how did I not know this!

.

.

Holy crap!

I can’t even imagine….

.

Things I will never need.

.

Would I like a Hermès bag? Sure.

.

.

Would I like a Hermès bag made from fungus? Oddly enough, I would not.

.

.

Say it isn’t so. Good grief… the model doesn’t even look happy.

.

.

On a list of ridiculous things no one needs? This has got to be in the top 5.

.

.

$1,000 a pair!

You might as well wear a sign that says “Yes, I’m a moron. Thanks for noticing”

.

My hat’s off to them.

.

A friend of ours crossed something off her bucket list recently…. and while I was happy she was fulfilling a lifelong dream, I did make one small request.

.

.

Take pictures of the hats!

.

.

Because when you go to the Kentucky Derby? There are lots of fabulous hats. Sadly my friend had a few too many mint juleps and only shared three hat photos. (Bad friend. Bad!)

.

.

But at least the last one was a doozy.

.

.

Pardon me while I snicker and include an anti-Brady Derby pic as well.

.

Cosmo Hell.

.

The April issue of my (is this awful gift ever going to end?) Cosmopolitan subscription is here and as usual, it’s filled with things too ridiculous not to share.

.

.

Fashion… or do designers just have twisted senses of humor? Tough call.

.

.

This months quiz was pretty lame. And in case you’re interested…

.

.

This next one made me laugh as well as cringe.

.

.

If that doesn’t make your eyes roll, nothing will.

.

.

I don’t know about you, but I neither have.. nor need… to bathe my crystals.

.

.

Is it any wonder this country is going down the proverbial drain?

.

.

Date ideas seemed like an interesting read and a good way to see how things have changed since I was on the market back in the dark ages of the 80’s.

.

.

Mario Kart can improve your sex life? What am I missing here….

.

.

Wow. I know I’m middle aged, menopausal and not as hip as I once was (the casual use of the word hip proves the veracity of that statement even more than the scrunchie that’s currently holding my hair back) but cutting each other’s toenails on a date? That makes me very glad I’m old, happily married and way off the singles track.

.

Of slime and flies.

.

Fashion is ephemeral. One day something is trending hot and everyone has to wear it/do it… the next day it’s passé. Here’s hoping this never catches on, because honestly? Eew.

.

.

Sorry, but that just looks like five globs of mucus…. and if I don’t eat the slimy shellfish? I certainly don’t want them on the end of my fingers.

.

.

I added the perfect glass to the man cave bar shelf yesterday. Because I do, to both.

.

.

It’s official, I will be calling our vacuum the rollsuck supreme from now on.

.

.

Yeah, because I need Dudley to stare at me more than he does already . Not!

And speaking of Dudley, for your viewing pleasure here’s a quick clip of him enjoying his latest hobby. Fly catching.

.


.

And while it’s a bit disgusting he insists on eating them? On a positive note, our house will be fly free for the foreseeable future.

.

More beauty is in the eye of the beholder adoptees.

.

The World Wildlife Fund’s symbolic adoption continues.

.

.

Cute candidates abound but you know this fellow will be left out in the cold.

.

.

No one will want to cuddle up with him on the couch. That dude needs a serious manicure.

.

.

Honey Badgers get a bad rap and sure, they’ve been known to viciously kill humans… but I’d still rather adopt one of them than Honey Boo Boo.

.

.

Most people find condors to be ugly birds, but come on…. he’s rocking that feather boa. It’s not an easy look to pull off.

.

.

And finally there’s the wombat, a much maligned creature. Sure he poops square cubes and has a two pronged penis….. but hey, none of us is perfect.

.

Catapalooza.

.

The crazy cat lady Facebook algorithm is in full swing.

.

.

Does my furniture require cat feet stockings?

.

.

It most definitely does not.

.

.

That goes the same for my feet….

.

.

And my lips.

.

.

Cat ear beret? Okay, I admit I could almost see myself wearing that.

.

.

Is it me, or does this cat look like he’s plotting his owner’s slow and painful dismemberment?

.

.

Unisex? On what planet….

.

.

But there.

At least they got something right.

.

Products no one needs.

.

My only question is why anyone makes these things in the first place.

.

.

I prefer my clams in chowder with heavy cream thank you very much.

.

.

Oh, hell no. I can only drink if the BeeGees are playing?

Trust me, if the BeeGees are playing…. I’ll need more not less.

.

.

I’m sorry, but they don’t. Less really is more.

.

.

While this is rather cute? It’s also a great way to take out an eye. Weaponized mallows are over the top, even for me.

.

.

.

.

No. Aside from the fact the packaging seems to be marketed for 6 year old girls…

I refuse to wear a perfume named Juicy Bunny on sheer principle.
