RE: Twat's That You Say?

Texts between Stella and her brother again:

Brother: Dirty look at target when someone saw me spelling "twat" with the letter mugs.


Then, a message from Stella to me:
Twattin' it in the family today I guess.

RE: Can You Spell It One More Time?

Freckles posted this about an interaction she had at work:

Me: Can you spell that, please?
Client: I as in eyeball.
I stopped listening after that. Disconnected for stupidity.

RE: The Pee of Tranquility

A Facebook status from a friend:

Today at work, an older lady was in the stall next to me and complimented me on the sound of my pee. She said it sounded "so tranquil" I've got that going for me. The crazies find me. Everywhere.

RE: Scent Of A Real Woman

Me: Apparently Lisa Rinna is joining RHBH ("The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills").
Stella: Is there room for her lips?
Me: My thoughts! They freak me out.  But, Taylor hasn't been around, so I guess she's FILLING a gap.
Stella: She probably smells like plastic and shiny sticky lip gloss.
Me: And Harry Hamlin's spunk
Stella: Yes. That combo seems like a perfume Candie's would produce.

RE: Dumbdevil

Stella and Mr. R talking "About that dumbass crossing the tightrope in Chicago tonight:"

Stella: Dad, you gonna watch the guy tightrope between two buildings in Chicago?
Mr. R: Is he guaranteed to fall?

And, Mr. R continues on with:
1. Turn it on. [Throws the remote at Stella]
2. Jesus Christ! It's Joel Osteen! WHAT THE HELL?!
3. Jesus...there are actually people there watching this shit. I hope he falls on them all.
4. A real feat would be the Chicago Bears crossing the line.
5. Stupid ass waste of TV time. I could be watching another "Murder She Wrote" rerun.

RE: Is This Why Buddha Gets His Belly Rubbed?

From a friend about her substitute teaching gig of the day:

"Miss, since it didn't work the first time, should I rub my belly when I poop?"

A quick summary of my day teaching first and second grade.

I told her she could do what she wants but I didn't know if it would work. She came back and informed me that it does work and I should try it.

RE: I Can't Even

Various calls a friend from high school has had to deal with lately:

Freckles: And what is your relationship to the deceased?
Customer: I didn't have relations with my niece. WTH?!
Freckles: That was not the question, sir. Who are you in bereavement for?
Customer: I ain't gotta answer that until they die.
Freckles: [Why me?]


Freckles: When was your last day of work?
Customer: I don't know. Hell, I wasn't there.
Freckles: Clearly.


Customer: Why do I need a Doctor to fill out FMLA papers? He doesn't think I have asthma.
Freckles: Do you have asthma?
Customer: Yeah! I limp and shit.
Freckles: Ok.

RE: Yes, Yes It Is

Me: "The 7 Little Johnstons"?  Oh, god.
The Hubby: Is that the X-rated version of "Snow White"?

Mr. R: Mom found the perfect solution. She's sleeping.

RE: A Golden Opportunity

Stella's commentary on a visit to a urologist:
Having to see a urologist is like walking into "Golden Girls." I'm the youngest person here by about 50 years. Some of these people were old during Prohibition.
OMG! I just heard an old guy yell, "I CAN'T GET MY OLD PETER UP!" I am scarred for fucking life.

RE: A Whole New Meaning To Donut Holes

Mr. R talking about "The assholes at the donut shop who get on their cell phones to ask people what kind of donuts they want"..."I want to say 'How about the dozen I'm gonna pound up your ass?'"

RE: Damn It Feels Bad To Be A Browns' Fan

Mr. R watching the season opener for the Browns.

:50 seconds left in the 1st quarter and Pitt scores:

"If they would have hung on for less than a minute more, they could have been tied at the end of the 1st quarter. Cleveland could have called this a successful season then. Too late now."


"This is shameful for Cleveland! SHAMEFUL!! Gimme some cookies."

RE: Humor...Somewhat Dark Humor

Here's a Facebook conversation between me and my cousins based on finding out Aviva Drescher was fired from "The Real Housewives of New York City."  At the end of the season, Aviva tossed her prosthetic leg across a table.  Cousin 1 posted the link on Cousin 2's Facebook page.  For background, Cousin 2 just had surgery for Crohn's Disease to get a colostomy bag.

Cousin 1 post:
Cousin 2 comment: Good, she was an idiot.
My comment: LOVE THIS! [Cousin 2], looks like they have an opening! ;)
Cousin 2 comment: She has her crazy leg and now I can have my bag!
My comment: NICE!
Cousin 1 comment: Just don't throw it at anyone...or do.
My comment: OMG! So, I was just thinking of Ramona's reaction to getting water splashed on her, imagine...

RE: He's Back!

Stella forced a "My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding" on Mr. R.  His reactions did not disappoint.

Stella: That's the priest.
Mr. R: Oh.

"Love the hats." - Mr. R, sounding just like Hannibal Lector, "Love the suit," according to Stella

"Is that a flying Jesus? I just saw a FLYING JESUS!" - Mr. R

"Do gypsies own anything in just one solid color? It's all patterned shit." - Mr. R

Stella: My dad wants a "My Wild Gypsy Nuns" show.

The Hubby: We just had the most amazingly awkward all-hands-meeting. For some unfathomable reason, our [VP So-and-so] did this stupid interpretive dance skit. It was painful.
Me: Wait, was it a joke?
The Hubby: Yeah, it was intended to be funny.
Me: Oh even as a joke, it didn't work out well?
The Hubby: Well, people were laughing, but all of the guys on my team just found it to be painfully awkward. I can't even imagine what possessed him to do it.  And it was planned out and rehearsed. He had a costume and music and everything.
Me: NO
The Hubby: Oh yeah.  It was so bad, David Brent wouldn't have done it.
Me: OMG!!!

RE: Fairy Gardens

Stella: For fucks sake...Every time I buy a tiny plant, some fuck face asks me if I am making a fairy garden.* Do I look like the kind of person who would make a fucking fairy garden? 
Birdman: Because you're a LAY-DEE**, and you like LAY-DEE things like fairy gardens & kittens & shit.

*I was unaware of fairy gardens being a thing so I googled it.
**Birdman is referencing Emily Howard, a character from "Little Britain."

RE: Quick Thinking

"Some weirdo* came in to do a drug test at my work today. When I picked the urine sample up off the table (not even 2 minutes after he left it) it was cold to the touch.

RE: I'd Probably Watch That*

Stella: WTF is TLC's obsession with gypsies?
Me: I don't get what's up with TLC period.
Stella: That just made me think, "Why don't they have a show about menstruating women?"
Me: Ha!
Stella: Wait...menstruating GYPSIES.
Me: Menstruating, 500 lb, midget, psychic, gypsies in the ER because of sex involving a strange addiction.
Stella: Mind. BLOWN.

*Hey, producers, you better not steal my show idea without crediting me and paying me.
