It’s rerun time OR What happens when you give yourself 15 minutes to write a new post

So here’s the skinny, and I blame Gluten Dude (but I’m not saying he isn’t awesome, because he is!)! I came across Gluten Dude’s website a couple weeks ago and saw his post about Whole30 and then I found the site nom nom paleo.  So of course I had to buy the related books. And of course I had to grocery shop for everything “Paleo.” And of course I had to start cooking every recipe I could get my hands on. I’ve been a tad preoccupied, self induced, as always.

So here it is, late Monday night and no post ready to go. Surprise. Surprise. Surprise. I’ll try to get a fresh post up at least by next week. In the mean time, may I interest you in a “fall” post from last year? Pretty sure it will be new to all most of you.  🙂

apple tree

So LOFT just sent me this invaluable “What to wear apple picking” email.  Damn, there goes my idea of jeans and a simple t-shirt or old sweatshirt on Gerald’s and my special apple picking date.  Who knew there was special attire for apple picking?!?  I am always so out of the fashion loop!  Apparently, a (stylish) cozy sweater is required. I’ll have to tell Gerald we can’t go on our yearly apple orchard excursion–because you know apple picking is foremost on his mind this time of year–until I get some proper new clothes for the occasion.

I’m thinking if there is a special wardrobe for apple picking, then other “occasions” should get their fair shake, right?  For instance, what’s the fashion du jour for pumpkin patches?  Now can I go with simple jeans / t-shirt??  Hayrides?  Camp taught me it’s good to avoid shorts.  Attire for blueberry picking?  Probably want to avoid wearing white.  Vineyards?  No clue.  Renaissance Festival?  I found out last year it’s NOT fashionable to wear a turkey hat after too much wine.  Oh, I got one — Hospital volunteer work – I hear total head-to-toe and covered face wear is all the rage!

I’m pretty sure I could be the poster child of what NOT to wear on specific outings/days, especially after my recent work dress up fiasco.  It looks like I have LOTS of shopping to do.  Hey, Gerald, where’s that new credit card??




Coins only!

It’s rerun time! I figured there’s mainly reruns on TV right now, oh and I’m having just a smidge of blogger’s block lately, so I’m posting a repeat of one of my favs! Trust me, it’s much better than the new post I was attempting. And as a bonus, I’m betting it’s a new post for most people who happen to come across my blog. 🙂

Anyhoo, enjoy…

coins only

Not an actual toll road sign but it ought to be

Apparently, all kinds of items besides (valid) coins are found in toll road coin hoppers (the basket thingees where you throw your change to pay your toll).

I have compiled a list–on very good authority I might add–for the morons out there who don’t seem to grasp the true meaning of “Coins only.”

  • condoms (packaged or used)
  • fuses
  • bullets/casings
  • safety pins
  • nails
  • lockets
  • earrings
  • rings
  • fake/foreign coins (paper or Chuck E. Cheese’s like)
  • paper money (real or fake)
  • firecrackers
  • gummy bears
  • nuts/bolts/screws (obviously the morons don’t want to lose anymore of these)
  • washers
  • bottle caps
  • turn signals
  • reflectors
  • ears (real or costume)
  • eye drops
  • “tobacco” rolling papers
  • clown (?) noses
  • mints
  • jolly ranchers
  • tongue depressors / popsicle sticks
  • whistles
  • keys
  • pantyhose
  • necklaces
  • pipes/tubes
  • money clips
