Bang, Bang, Bang! Bulleted Post Comin' at Ya!

by CajunKate

  • A few weeks ago we went to John Thomas' fourth birthday party. Here is my favorite pic:
  • All I want for Christmas is to see my new niece Eliza...with her eyes open. I have seen her three times (just after she was born, her baptism, and JT's birthday party). Those three times have consisted of watching her sleep. I think the total awake time during my visits with her has equaled less than five minutes. Photo collage as evidence:
  • Jen, Tim and the boys have arrived from Columbus! Hurray! Tonight we are all supposed to go to the basketball game. I will have a post tomorrow.

Merry Christmas- MST3K Style!

by CajunKate

So today I was reading the blog BaRou Is the New Bklyn, and she had the clip Patrick Swayze Christmas from MST3K which set me to reminiscing about how much I love that show! And now, in honor of the Christmas season, a clip from the MST3K episode Santa Claus Conquers the Martians!

Favorite line-
Martian: What is a Christmas?
Joel: It's a Christian holiday ruined by commercialism.

P.S. Check out this grossness of a Christmas weather forecast. Oh, boy! Wish you were here!

Diary of a Mad Housewife

by Cajun Kate

So this conversation took place out in the garage last night after Alex came home from work.

Me: Hey! Who wrote that on my car? Zandy! You d**k! Why'd you do that!
Him: Huh? What?
*looking at car, then laughing* That's funny!
Me: You wrote that, you a**!
Him: No, I didn't!
Me: Oh, stop it!
Him: I did
NOT write that.
Me: Alexander, I would have freaking noticed that some time today if it had been there! I'm not that unobservant!
Him: I did
NOT write that. I saw it there yesterday!
Me: Nu-unh! You're a liar.
* beginning to doubt myself* How would I not have noticed that?!?
Him: I have no idea, but I didn't do it.
Me: Maybe someone at Wal-Mart did it. That's the only place I've been. Why wouldn't I have seen it, though?
*shrug* (combined with continued completely innocent, angelic face)
Me: Oh my God! I hate when people do that. It makes me feel like such lazy a**hole. I'm getting the camera. This is blog worthy!
*Run inside and get camera; come back and begin taking pictures*
Him: Ha! That's funny!
(niggling doubts rapidly fleeing) OMG! You totally did that! *laughing*
Him: No, I didn't!
(smirky smile unable to be contained at this point)
Me: Zandy, you f**er! Who else would write "warsh"?
*riotous laughter*
Me: I hate you!

Gift Guide for the Haters

by CajunKate

So at this time of year, during my wanderings on the Internets, I'm always coming across the gift guides and/or wish lists of various people. This got me thinking about all gifts that would make me want to lay a roundhouse kick to face of the giver if they ended up under my tree. Why would I do compose such a list? Well, because it's the hap-happiest time of the year, and someone needs to balance this situation with a little snarkiness wrapped in dry wit. Who better than myself, I ask you? Stop saying lots and lots of people! Geez, nobody asked for YOUR snarkiness!

Without further ado, my gift guide for people who hate my f***king guts:

1. Beans. It is well-known fact that I abhor all manner of bean (except green beans). This leaves you with a wide variety with which to torment me- navy beans, red beans, black beans, lima beans... you get the idea. However, if you were a real hater, you would give me refried beans. If my bean hating were a mountain, refried beans would be the apex. And I would promptly hurl myself to my death rather than eat a smidge. Once a year, I eat ONE bean. This happens on New Years Day when I fish out one black-eyed pea from my brother Ted's "Famous Blackeyed Peas and Sausage." I swallow one pea whole and promptly guzzle whatever alcoholic beverage happens to be in my hand. I do this to allow the magical effect of eating blackeyed peas on New Years Day as good luck to take effect. I never get the good luck, which just enhances my loathing of the bean. It's really a tragic cycle with no end in sight.

2. Radio talk show host Deliliah's new book
Love Matters. I'm not even giving a courtesy link to that s**t. I loathe her show with the fire of a thousand suns. If I had to listen to her show once in the rest of my life, it would be one time too many. Her kind of scmaltz has no place in my life...EVER!

3. A Barry Manilow CD. Barry Manilow music makes me want to throw myself into oncoming traffic while gouging out my eardrums with a screwdriver. Stick that in your Copacabana, Barry!

4. A
Sarah Siverman Show DVD. Sarah Silverman is not funny. That's right. I said it. Except for that "I'm F***ing Matt Damon" video. That was pretty funny, but pretty much only because of Matt, yeah, she's not funny. Lots of times I find myself feeling an uncontrollable desire to throw a brick through the TV when I see commecials for her show. I'd pretty much be willing to destroy my husband's massive piece of electronic equipment, source of all his viewing pleasure, to avoid even seeing her face or hearing her annoying voice if it didn't mean he'd cut me off (and by cut me off, I mean sexually, of course . Oops! TMI. My bad.)

5. Tickets to NASCAR. Because that big fence would prevent me from hurling myself on the track to make it all just stop. There are many things I hate about NASCAR, not the least of which would be the ungodly noise of the cars, the inanity of cars going round and round in a circle, and those huge, obnoxious f**king logos on the cars for Wonder Bread and Tide and s**t.

And there you have it. My gift guide for anyone who hates me. Not that such people exist. With such a warm and sunny disposition as mine, who could ever have even a spark of enmity toward little ole me? Stop saying lots of people!

Mah, What's Dat White Stuff?

by CajunKate

So Charlie Roy sent me an email and pics from Baton Rouge, and they got WAY more snow than we did in Lafayette. NO FAIR! I was talking to him on the phone when I heard maniacal laughter in the background followed by Chuck yelling, "Oh no! They're hitting me with snowballs! Gotta go defend myself!" So fun! I wish I was there. Anyway, here is Chuck's email, and the pics he sent. He's supposed to send more later. I'll post them as I get them.

Hey Folks,
Can you believe 5 - 6 inches of snow in parts of Southwest, South Central and Southeast Louisiana and Western Mississippi? Some maybe less or more. It started at about 5:30 AM and ended about an hour ago. Starting to rain and sleet now. If it was still snowing, no telling what we would have. National Weather Service and local weather people kept saying no accumulation except on bridges. I have attached pictures and all I can say is, look at no accumulation! It has been at about 34 degrees. If it had gotten below freezing last night, no telling what we would have. It is wonderful for us anyway. Last time we got any significant snow was in 1988 about 1 - 2 inches. This is the most I have seen in my lifetime on Louisiana.
We started out at school, but they closed it at around 7:45. A SNOW DAY IN Louisiana! Go Figure!
Share these photos via email with other people you know if you wish.

So, yeah, I proved myself a complete a**hole once again. But in a fun way! Behold!

How to make Southwestern Louisanians S**t a Brick

by CajunKate

So this morning, I walked into the bedroom to deliver freshly ironed pants to Alex (Just call me Martha, b***hes!), and he was all, "Dude, Dave Baker said it's gonna snow!" And I knew, just knew, right then and there that people here would be freaking the f**k out at the mere mention of snow in a weather forecast. And, yes, there were at least two Facebook statuses of friends in Lafayette addressing the phenomenon.

Now, the real deal is..well, it ain't gonna "snow." At least not the big, fluffy white flakes version, otherwise known as "real snow." If it "snows," it's gonna be the same s**t we always get- hard little iceballs more akin to hail than snow that lightly coat your roof. But it will be enough (if it happens, which I am betting it won't) to make people here lose their minds and close schools and roads and be out in their yards trying to make snowballs and snowmen and s**t. Yes, really. It's so sad.
