Did You Know Tuesday...Peace in the Kingdom Edition


Did You Know Tuesday is a new creation by me because I'm trying to get my bloggy groove back. Did You Know Tuesday is purely my lame way of writing a blog post because my brain function is at zero....Please accept my apologies in advance for any boredom you may incur while reading...Here we go...

DID YOU KNOW...


that peace has arrived at the magical land of Bee and Rose? No medical dramas playing out with Chilly...Tween Caveboy survived his 24 hour flu (though it was not pretty and Mommy didn't sleep for 2 days...)...Irish Dancer Girl lived through her grueling dance schedule last week....Mommy finally has time to blog...that in itself is a major miracle...
sigh.....


DID YOU KNOW...


that my bloggy will be undergoing some construction soon?...As Chilly would say whenever trying to weasel out of trouble..."We ask that you bear with us during this transistion." Thanks!

DID YOU KNOW...

that apparently, Cat Butts are all the rage these days? I have a cat, Shadow, and quite frankly, I'm surprised that he didn't fill me in on this little tidbit. Look...I'll show you...

You can put these on your fridge! I mean, who wouldn't want to look at a cat butt when you're ready to grab a snack? There are five popular breeds and a hairball magnet included...meeeooww.... You can also enjoy a Cat Butt Air Freshener...Did you know that cat butt smells like hyacinth? (Quite honestly, I never want to find my nose close enough to a cat's butt to find out if this is true....)

And finally, it seems that some intrepid researcher has discovered that cat butt tastes like peppermint and would make quite the tasty chewing gum...I'll just take his word for it...

DID YOU KNOW...

that I will be a busy blog-stalking bee today?

I am going to attempt to hit at least 100 of the 300 blogs I follow today before I have to take Irish Dancer Girl to her dance class this afternoon. I hope that Blogger has resolved that dumb "profile" issue so I can comment on all of them. I've been using the Mozilla browser for a few months now since IE had so many "fails" where blogging is concerned. If your comments are set up where I have to choose a profile (ex: google account, etc), my comment won't post. I'm not ignoring you! I promise! As I mentioned before, pop-up windows are not an issue...I can comment all day long with those. It seems to be embedded comments that are the issue. If you have an email address on your blog, I will email a comment to you:)

I know many bloggers have been writing about the decrease in comments lately...this may be the culprit! Hopefully, I will find resolution soon!

DID YOU KNOW...

that I think this is the cutest stinkin' turtle I've ever seen?

DID YOU KNOW...

that I really appreciate you taking the time to read this nonsense today?! Thank you!

xoxo

Ummm, can I just say that I'm slightly disturbed by the cat butt stuff??

ICK!

Good luck with the comments stuff, and I'm glad everyone is on the mend or the up-n-up now.

Cheers! ;-)

Ew on the cat butt stuff. I have a cat here but I refuse to check on that stuff for you. I'm very sure her butt doesn't smell like hyacinths though. Why? Because I'm the one who scoops her potty box and if it smelled like flowers, it certainly wouldnt seem like such a chore!

Almost done with the updates on my blog. New name coming up and then some new decor. I'm even planning on weeding out some of my reading. I figure why bother following all those blogs when I have no idea how many are actually visiting mine as well. It's just the polite thing ya know.
Jillene said…
NAAAAAASTY on the cat bum stuff. I am NOT a lover of cats and that made me puke a little in my mouth.
Tranquility said…
I agree - that is the all time cutest turtle ever!

Cats butts? Really? Huh. What is this world coming to? ;)
Jan said…
My daughter is next to me "crack"ing up over the cats. The gum is so gross.

Anyways, glad you are having a good time and hope the construction goes well :)
Caitlin said…
Who knew there was such a fascination with cat butts...

Love the new banner! Very cute!

I was having blogger issues with firefox so I switched to Google Chrome and it's been great!

"We ask that you bear with us during this transistion." thats going in my bank of lines to use on MIL.

I died laughing at the cat butt stuff!
Kristina P. said…
I am a little disgusted about all the cat butt hype. I mean, what about the dog butts! Don't leave them out!
Hit 40 said…
Cat butts? Really. I saw on another blog yesterday instead of air guitar/ air sex is in!!! I guess you can youtube it. I didn't.

... probably enough from me. I will be quiet now.
Debbie said…
And this is why I love blogging. It is so educational! I had no idea cat butts were all the rage. I have two live ones in my house!
I like the look around here. What else are you planning to do?
annie kelleher said…

Chaka said…
For supposedly having no brain function that was quite a post. I would not have thought that your blog needed any construction done to it, but now I am curious to see what you have in store.
Yaya said…
I love random nonsense. It complements my thought process well.

Cat butts? Hilarious.

Good luck on your blog hopping!

What next? Dare we ask!

First I had to ignore your desperate attempt at getting people to believe the Shopaholic movie was better than the book. Now you want us to believe cat butts smell like hyacinths.

Your credibility is on thin ice here, missy.
Mimi said…
Maybe the cat butt fridge magnets would help with my diet!
The Boob Nazi said…
ewwwwwwwww cat butts. ewwwwwwwwwww
Kelly said…
Thanks for the heads up on cat butts. I am not a cat person so I feel left out. Maybe I should start liking cats just for the butts. Or not.
Bobby G said…
the cat butt thing freaks me out...seriously...
SO said…
Whoever came up with the cat butt stuff has some serious issues. *shudder* I love the did you know post. Good luck with your commenting.
Randi Troxell said…
Ummm... are those cat magnets for real... b/c if so- that is just really gross and we all know how much i love my bella, but i certainly don't wanna be staring her her booty!!!

btw... love what you've done construction wise already. love the header!
Me said…
Yay for Peace!

And those cat magnets....GROSS!
Devri said…
Woman, I love the header! Can't wait to see the rest!

OK..I have 2 cats...but...Cat Butts??? YUCK!!!!!

I ♥ your "Did you know Tuesday!"

I love the idea of a Did You Know post! I usually have great ideas to post about and then forget them when I get home from work, I may have to borrow your idea! I was having similar problems with blogger on IE and so I switched to Firefox. I love it! The only thing that was weird is it changed my blog font, oh well, I just switched to one I liked better.
Love the new header, and I have to leave the cat but thing alone, yuck. Wow, this got long, it could have been a blog post in it's self!
What a seriously charming idea for an ongoing series of posts! I've always been a bit of a fact and trivia nut, and never tire of filling the ol' noggin with new (to me at least) snippets of information.

I'm delighted to know that your comments (on Chronically Vintage) are working again, sweetie! Thank you very much for stopping by to let me know that.

I hope you have a gorgeous Thursday - big hugs,
♥ Jessica

Whooo's 100?

All righty then…do you have a cup of coffee, hot cocoa, tea, martini? How about a masseuse? You’re gonna need it! It’s my 100th post and by the time you are done reading it, you’ll probably feel as old and tired as Rip Van Winkle! You know me and my long winded rambley-ness!

Blogging is like taking a vacation to a place you never k…

A Wee Drop of Irish (or Cloudy With a Chance of B*tchy Part 2)

Happy St. Patrick's Day! How about a wee stroll down memory lane?  Thank you to everyone who messaged me about sharing this blast from the past again this year:)  (yes, Maureen...I do read your emails too!)  Even though it was originally posted in 2009, not too much has changed (says Dawn in her "I can't believe I have PMS every single year at this same time"  happy (think Pharrell singing "Happy") voice.  So grab a cup of Irish coffee, Jameson whiskey, Guinness or whatever suits your fancy on this fine St. Patrick's Day and let me share a tale of whimsy with you.  (and may the luck of the Irish be with you if you come my way today!  Don't say I didn't warn you!)   



Oops! What's she doing here again? Wasn't she just here a month ago? UGH! The nerve! We had so much "fun" last time she was here, didn't we? 

Well, since I have a full day of Irish activities planned, I guess I better be gettin' my Irish on....hmm...let's s…

Chilly Update...

I hate this disease with a passion...more on that in a moment...

First and foremost, there aren't enough words in the English language to convey my most sincere gratitude for the amazing love and support you've all shared with my family. I am completely overwhelmed and very humbled by it all. I've shared all of your comments and emails with Chilly and the kiddos. It has meant so much to us! Thank you, thank you and thank you again!

I wish I could write that Chilly is fine and coming home tomorrow. I wish I could go back to last Friday when every fiber of my being was screaming at me that Chilly was having a heart attack. I wish I would have pinned him to the ground and shoved an aspirin down his throat when he put me off about his symptoms. I wish he would have agreed to go to the ER...Sadly, I can't turn back time...

We were told today that Chilly has suffered a stroke in addition to a heart attack. These two events occured together...meaning, he had the stroke w…
