Z is for Zurückschalten – My German word for switcheroo – close enough.

As long as I post this before midnight, I win!  Last A to Z Challenge post! I love the song You Are My Sunshine.  That song has been sung to me since I can remember.  My daughter would say the same.  Volker didn’t grow up hearing this song but while we dated and I was […]

Y is for Yeah, that happened today. “What a dork” will come to mind a lot while you read this.

You know that inspiring blogger award post yesterday?  Remember how I listed  The Bloggess? No biggie.  Lots of people are inspired by her.  But not everyone is a super dork.  In my gooberness and because I follow some rules, I felt compelled to let her know that she had made my list.  I mean, I […]

X is for X Chromosome – Having two will keep you from turning into a fish monster.

My husband just walked in with a tiny splinter in his pinkie finger Me:  Want me to get some tweezers? Volker:  No, I’ve got it. Then, he GRABS A GIANT HUNTING KNIFE. Me:  What the fuck are you going to do with that? Volker:  I need to open the skin. Me:  Of a bear?  You’re […]

W is for What’d you call me? Yeah, Vucker’s not right either.

Note:  I’m running a bit behind on the A to Z Challenge – I’ll catch up!!  Also, there’s more than the usual amount of salty language in this one, y’all.  It was all a misunderstanding, maybe. My husband has a very German name, Volker.  The V sounds like an F and the O, more like […]

V is for Volker – The German word for awesome.

You know when you make a really bad decision but from that comes something great?  Well, that sort of happened. This is my husband, Volker.  I’m going to sing his praises in a minute. This is my first Theme Thursday post – WooHoo!  When I read that the theme today was Do-Overs, my mind immediately […]

U is for Ummm, I might need to seek professional help and stuff about tally marks.

Note:  I’ve been feeling a bit icky.  I woke up at 4 A.M. and wrote this post then fell asleep (out, completely unconscious) until 5:30 P.M.  I just read it.  Warning, I’ve reached a whole new level of crazy. And there may be more than a few Doctor Who references. March 31, I sent this […]

T is for Teen tempting siren or I totally made-out at a church hayride

In Jr. High, our speech teacher thought it would be a great idea to have kids pick a song and lip-sync it in class. For my performance, I show up dressed something like this… I was holding my home-made microphone (a turkey baster wrapped in tinfoil) and singing “Lovin’, Touchin’, Squeezin’” by Journey to a […]

S is for Songs that I sang as a kid that should have freaked my parents out

ANNOUNCEMENT:  Holy coding skills, Batman.  I added a php thingy-whatever for navigating through posts and it totally works and I can’t believe that just happened!  It took me 3 hours to just copy and paste code or the code word or something.  Still, I’m adding ‘Bad Ass Programmer – making computers my bitch since 2013’ […]

R is for Reading blogs that make you buy ice cream and other voodoo magic.

I was skimming through the intrawebs, minding my own business, when I came upon this post about Rocky Road ice cream.  Damn Jedi mind tricks and evil witchery (not you, Delightfully Ludicrous, you’re awesome). Before I knew what was happening, I was in my car and en route to the local grocer for this… That’s […]

Q is for Quit yelling at me! – or – We’d be running from Sleestaks if my dad hadn’t saved us.

Growing up in the northeast corner of Oklahoma, Dad took us camping at Grand Lake just about every weekend. I love the lake but camping isn’t my favorite unless it’s in a stunning hotel with maid service and a champagne brunch. This was not an available option at Gray’s Ranch.  We had a van. It […]
