Bee Exposed! And the Return of the Nerdanderthal...

The Return of the Nerdanderthal..

The Nerdanderthal made his triumphant re-appearance last night. At approx. 7:00 pm MST, he lumbered over to a comfy spot and clicked on the TV. Within seconds, he was making all sorts of giddy Nerdanderthal noises...What is the reason for this creature's return to our humble abode? Big Brother has returned for it's 11th brings out the Nerdanderthals like rain brings out the wild creatures in the desert...scary....

As with American Idol, the Nerdanderthal aka Chilly has rarely missed an episode of Big Brother since it's very beginning...11 years ago...He is in Big Brother heaven right now because it's on multiple days of the week and Showtime airs it's BB After Dark show for 3 hours every night....oy.....There is a blessing that comes with the return of the frees up my evenings for blog time! Woo hoo! Thank you, Big Brother!!

Big Brother has been on for 11 years? Wow, time flies...

I'm housesitting for a friend who's in Europe right now, and she e-mailed me from GERMANY to ask me to DVR the Big Brother premiere. I can't believe she e-mailed me from halfway across the world to ask me to do that!

We love BB too! We watch it every summer - or at least I do. The hubbs watches it when he's home :)
Can we saw gross on Jesse being back? Uh gross.
I so don't get BB. My MIL and SIL watch it like it's the best thing since sliced bread but I don't get down like that...I suppose it's not trashy enough for

Love the new button it's so going on my page in just a minute!

The only show my hubby truly becomes a widower to is American Idol. Poor guy.

Cute necklace!

I think I have that site bookmarked on the computer upstairs. Gonna check it out again later. Lotsa neat stuff there.
I absolutely love my necklace from Kristen's! I'll keep my fingers crossed that you win!
Vickie said…
I can't believe Big Brother has been on that long. I never got into that show. The only time I knd of watch it was when "Yes, Dear" had Jimmy joining Big Brother. That was a hoot:)

Good luck on the necklace!

Guilty - Big Brother too...don't tell anyone ;)
Thanks for the info on the buttons - gonna go check it out!
Jenners said…
Seriously --- he's watched for 11 years! How does he stand it? We watched maybe the first 2 seasons and it was so ridiculous. And Julie Chen just drives me insane. But who was the secret houseguest? My husband watched the opening last night just to mock it but couldn't make it through the whole show. : )
Robyn Jones said…
well...she is wearing half an outfit anyways...LOL!
I will have to go over to Kims, and see what kind of "exposure" is going on over there...if ya know what i mean....(plus a chance to check out a new blog... :)

Hello my friend. I have been stalking you from my Google reader again, sorry. But I just wanted you to know that I do read and am missing your wonderful comments on my bloggy.

I hope to see another Wordle from you soon.

P.S.: Nice new color scheme. I like the header & button.

I've never watched Big brother. That necklace is cool. I've seen it in giveaways before.

For Gigi ... A Letter to Heaven

Today there is a happy celebration in Heaven as it would be my beautiful grandmother Gigi's birthday.  Gigi was definitely the most important influence on my life and it became crystal clear to me how deeply when I was asked to write the eulogy for her memorial service a few years back.  I decided to send a letter directly to God explaining what amazing treasure was on it's way.  It is a letter meant to bring smiles and giggles.  Thanks in advance for allowing me to share that special letter with you today as we honor her memory:)

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…
