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.


He knows me so well.


My Facebook page popped up with a memory that was fun to read the other day.

It was one of those silly quizzes… with a twist. Instead of answering the questions yourself, you ask the questions to your spouse/partner/significant other to see how well they know you.

If you want to see how my husband did, read on.


1. What’s something I always say?

Im a font of useless knowledge.

He nailed that one, I say it all the time.


2. What makes me happy?

I do.

Cheeky answer, but it’s true.


3. What makes me sad?

Injured animals.

Very true.


4. What’s my favorite thing to do?


He’s got me there. If I don’t have a book? I’m not a happy camper.



5. What do I do when you’re not around?


Fair enough. I probably do.


6. What makes you proud of me?


Good answer. My man didn’t just fall off the turnip truck you know.


7. What’s my favorite food?


I might have to disagree with that, but it’s true I eat my fair share. And maybe your share… if you’re not paying attention.



8. If I could go anywhere in the world, where would I go?


I’ve often spoken of my desire to see my father’s homeland, so yes.


9. Do you think you could live without me?


Smart man.


10. How do I annoy you?

You prove me wrong too often.

And that… was my very favorite answer by far.


So yes, after 36 years of marriage I’d say my other half knows me pretty damn well.

Can you say the same?


Pandemic humor.

Go ahead, laugh.

It’s better than the alternative.

Have you ever wondered how it will feel when we eventually  (hopefully!)  get back to normal?

I’m not sure I ever want a stranger closer than 6 feet again.

This could be a real problem if Aunt Jemima products are going to disappear…

I totally need that mask.

Yeah, we kind of do.

Well that goes without saying.

Personally, I’d prefer 2 continents.

One day only!

Better hurry.

It’s all about priorities.

And finally for my horoscope loving readers….

Clearly it’s been a long time…


As you know, I am not a 25 year old single woman….  (Please refrain from commenting if you value our friendship)  so it’s been a while since I leafed through a Cosmopolitan magazine. But for some reason a girlfriend gifted me a subscription, and I felt I needed to honor the gesture.




My hair removal routine is neither adventurous nor worth writing about, and as for the scale….. I’m afraid my hairless cat level will have to remain a mystery. I like my readers, but not that much.



And how do they know walking burrito wasn’t the look I was going for?

Fashion is personal…. and I happen to have the perfect black bean earrings to match, so there!



The selfie wasn’t around when I was young and single, so this may be a day late and a dollar short… but here goes.




Okay, so maybe I need a little more practice.



What kind of noodle am I?

Yes…. I’m beginning to remember why I stopped reading Cosmo in the first place.

(In case you’re wondering? Rigatoni baby.)

I found this issue to be so utterly ridiculous, I may have to make it a monthly series. And if you’re groaning now?

Just be thankful I didn’t share all the articles today.




Yes, it’s clearly been a while since I read single women’s magazines.


Name That Crap #2


My first attempt at stumping WordPress readers with the husband’s crap failed miserably.

Name That Crap

Answer to Name That Crap

Clearly, you lot know your crap.




No, it’s really not.

But let’s try again anyway.




It stands approximately two feet tall and is made of wood and metal.

What it is?




Yes, it is.

But I’ll need you to be more specific….
