More Mush

In Random on March 25, 2016 at 8:37 pm

Maybe it’s my impending nuptials…
Maybe my hormones are out of whack…
Maybe I’m turning into a sap in my old age…
But this stuff is gettin’ me lately!








But this one is definitely more the style of me and my fiance:


ūüėĬ†¬† Happy Friday!

The Agent of Injustice

Kim Davis.

There’s no way you haven’t heard her name or seen her face at least once for her refusal to issue marriage licenses in a Kentucky County, despite being ordered by the federal court multiple times and now possibly facing fines and jail time. ¬†To some she’s a martyr, standing up for her religious beliefs. ¬†To some she’s a nuisance, furthering stereotypes of the region and keeping her tax payer funded job position despite refusing to perform her job duties.

First of all, let me start by saying that this country was built for people to have the freedom to have their own beliefs and to fight for those beliefs.  I applaud those that are brave enough to stand out from the crowd and stand firm on their beliefs.  My issue with her is not that she is standing up for her religion.  My issue is that, should her personal beliefs conflict with her job and changing her personal beliefs is not an option for her, then she should find a new job.  My issue is that her personal beliefs being allowed to affect her job performance is hindering the freedom of others.

Nugget #59: Bison and Condiments

In Cleverness, Funny, Quotes on April 21, 2014 at 9:35 pm

“What’s a stuffed buffalo without 2 gallons of mayonnaise?”

Dude conversations are the best nonsense ever to be heard, especially with a little beer thrown in the mix.

Nugget #58: The Great Debate

In Cleverness, Funny, Quotes on February 26, 2014 at 4:00 pm

Who are we? A philosophical question many people mull over in their lives. Here’s the absolute un-philosophical attempt to answer between two friends…

1: “We’re yuppies.”
2: “I don’t think you know what that word means.”
1: “Yeah. It means a person who does what they love in life and… does… yuppie stuff.”
2: “No. Yuppies are upper class stuck up people. We are not upper class. We are not really cultured.”
1: “Bikers think cultured people are yuppies.”
2: “We aren’t cultured.”
1: “Then no, I don’t know what yuppie means.”

Conversations With My Boyfriend

In Funny, Opinion/Personal, Personal, Random on December 2, 2013 at 3:47 pm

Children say the darnedest things…

Anyone who is a parent or has small children in their family can attest to this. ¬†Bill Cosby did a whole show dedicated to it. ¬†There’s a very entertaining Twitter feed that has been turned into a book called Preschool Gems full of nothing but the out-loud thoughts of young children. ¬†Even my Facebook news feed is full of status updates from parents recapping hilarious scenarios and conversations with their children of either funny things their kids say or things they have to say to their kids that they would’ve never imagined they would be saying. ¬†I enjoy reading these and made a mental note long ago that, should I become a mother one day, I would keep a running log of all the cute, funny, and often times quite wise musings that I will inevitably bear witness to.

But then I realized I didn’t have to wait. ¬†I have been blessed with the companionship of a very high energy and entertaining person. ¬†While he is 30 years old, he is very youthful in both appearance and demeanor. ¬†His sense of humor is larger than he is himself and with his Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, it is not uncommon to end up in very strange, confusing, and random conversations. ¬†Give him a couple beers, and that scale is multiplied. ¬†I know what you’re probably thinking. ¬†That doesn’t sound like fun. ¬†Where is this going? ¬†What in the hell does this have to do with Bill Cosby or children?

Nugget #51: Driving Me Nuts!

In Cleverness, Funny, Quotes on April 14, 2013 at 3:50 pm

“My underwear is driving me nuts. ¬†If I had nuts, they’d be driving my nuts nuts!”

An hour later…

“I’m an idiot. ¬†My underwear was on backwards. ¬†No wonder it was so uncomfortable…”

Nugget #49: Even Made-Up Homies Protect Each Other

In Cleverness, Funny, Quotes on March 11, 2013 at 12:02 pm

Me: “I can’t be mean to her!¬† We are in a desk knife gang together.¬† We got each other’s backs.¬† We will even have a song.”

My supervisor: “Murdaaa.”

Me: “Oh, for sure.¬†¬†Definitely Ja Rule.”

This, surprisingly, was not a very unusual conversation for my work place.

**I am not actually affiliated with a real gang.¬† Only the one that my old office mate and I created upon both finding confiscated pocket knives in our desks during our office’s move.¬† Cuz we bad.

Nugget #45: Cocktails & Convos

In Cleverness, Funny, Quotes on February 25, 2013 at 2:44 pm

If you haven’t noticed, there is a running theme of alcohol consumption and idiocy with my crowd. Here is a lovely conversation I was able to witness between two friends. The subject was an older lady (early 50’s probably) across the bar who had obvious plastic surgery, pig-tailed hair, reading glasses, an ascot, and Ugg boots with a jean skirt.

Friend A: That looks like a playhouse. Is that right?
Friend B: Playboy
Friend A: Right…Oh, housemate, that’s what I was trying to say!
Friend B: Nope. Playmate.
Friend A: Damn. *Short Pause* It looks like she has glitzy eyelashes on.
Friend B: Those are glasses.

Either give up the convo or give up your cocktails, girl! It was at this point that we both told Friend A to just stop…
