P for Pisser Post!!! A Meme!


I was tagged for a meme by the most venerable Javaqueen. We all love to love her because she is so out there and I mean that in a good way.  This is a gal who tells it like she sees it.  No messin’ with her.  She doesn’t hold back and that’s what I love about her. So here are the rules:

You leave a comment on this post, and I’ll assign you a letter. You write about ten things you love that begin with your assigned letter, and post it at your place. When people comment on your list, you give them a letter, and the chain continues on and on.

You can leave a comment and not be assigned a letter if you want.  Just let me know if you want a letter to keep this going.

Javaqueen assigned me the letter P.

OK, the first thing I thought of was Piss. I’m sorry, but that is what popped into my head.  Hell, we all have to do it.  You can expand on that word  and turn it into Pissy.  Something we all feel from time to time.  Then you have your Pisspots (similar to dumbasses).  Of course, we can’t forget Pissed, another emotion we all feel on occasion.

Also in the United States, piss-ant is an epithet  for an inconsequential, irrelevant, or worthless person, especially one who is irritating or contemptible out of proportion to his or her significance. A Virginia politician once silenced a heckler by saying “I’m a big dog on a big hunt and I don’t have time for a piss-ant on a melon stalk”.

In conversations with his advisors during the Vietnam War, U.S. president Lyndon B. Johnson often referred to Vietnam as “that damn piss-ant little country.

Then we have Pee and Piddle,  just more words for Piss which also is one of George Carlin’s  “The Seven Words You Can Never Say On TV”.


Then there is always “Pee-hole in the snow”, a saying my Dad used all the time.


Now, Piss-off is something I sometimes want to say to a few people. I don’t but I definitely want to.

And last but not least Pisser which has a few meanings:

1. a person who urinates

2. a very disagreeable difficulty

3. one that is extraordinary or remarkable

4. This was a pisser meme!!!!

And don’t forget my son used to Pee in the kitty litter when he was potty training.  I didn’t teach him this.  He learned all by himself.

Fourth and Fourth Meme

Trisha at Talkin’ Trash with Trisha tagged me for this meme. The thing about Trisha is she never really talks trash.  She is a cool talkin’ mama.  Mama to our lovely wedded Birdpress.  I’ve been tagged for a few memes lately and have been slacking so I am going to try and catch up in the next few days. This was a nice easy one or so I thought.

The rules are:
1. Go to your pictures file.
2. Go to the 4th file.
3. Go to the 4th picture.
4. Post it and tell the story.
5. Tag 4 more people.

Being such an unorganized person I had picture files everywhere. So I had to gather them all and put them in the actual, for real,  picture file. Thank goodness, I didn’t come up with some lame dumbass photo. This truly is the fourth file (Damon’s Alaskan photos) , fourth photo.

It’s Damon and his girlfriend, Anna,  when they were in Alaska.  I guess they are pretending to be moose or deer or elk or something with antlers, maybe reindeer.  Christmas is coming.  They should make Christmas cards using this photo. That would be cool.  Too bad he didn’t have red on.

I don’t have much of a story to go with it because I wasn’t there.  But I like the photo.

I’ll pass on tagging because I’m too lazy today.  I will just tag everyone I know in the whole wide world and that means YOU!!!!

“It Makes Me Smile” Meme

The great Spidey AKA Peter Parkour started a meme and tagged me for it. I don’t think I have to introduce Spidey to any of my readers because i think most of you if not all of you know him. He is funny, loves women, especially his wife, was a trucker but is starting a new life. Oh cripe, this is turning into a poem. Oh, well. He is sweet and I love him dearly.

Basically you are looking for that song and/or video that puts a smile on your face no matter what kind of mood you are in .I do have a few songs in my head for this. I probably have already posted this but I will post it again because things haven’t changed. This song makes me smile every time I hear it.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Insight To My Heart– A Song Meme To My Son

I got tagged by Wendy at Life With Buck to do this meme that was created by Little Miss Sew ‘N Sew
and Wendy.

Rules forInsight To My Heart”:

Post the song that just gets to you every time you hear it.

This song has always gotten to me.  You are all going to recognize it.  It really doesn’t need an introduction.  This song reaches out to me on so many different levels.  I’ve posted the lyrics also.  I picked this version because the crowd in the audience was so moved by it too.

This song is dedicated to my son. The first stanza is him.

You who are on the road
Must have a code that you can live by
And so become yourself
Because the past is just a good bye.

Teach your children well,
Their father’s hell did slowly go by,
And feed them on your dreams
The one they picked, the one you’ll know by.

Don’t you ever ask them why, if they told you, you would cry,
So just look at them and sigh and know they love you.

And you, of tender years,
Can’t know the fears that your elders grew by,
And so please help them with your youth,
They seek the truth before they can die.

Teach your parents well,
Their children’s hell will slowly go by,
And feed them on your dreams
The one they picked, the one you’ll know by.

Don’t you ever ask them why, if they told you, you would cry,
So just look at them and sigh and know they love you.

Everything you need to know about me in a six-word title and one illustration.

The Girl From The Ghetto and Wendy at Life With Buck have both tagged me for this meme called “Everything you need to know about me in a six-word title and one illustration.

The rules are as follows:

Post it to your blog including a visual illustration if you would like.

  • Link to the person who tagged you in your post and to this original post if possible, so we can track it as it travels across the blogsphere.
  • Tag five more blogs with links.
  • Don’t forget to leave a comment in the tagged blogs with an invitation to play.
  • Since I was tagged twice I am going to include three visuals. Does that make sense? No, it doesn’t to me either. Sorry, I can’t help myself. I love visuals.


    OR AM I?

    NOT ME!!!
    This meme has been going around so I won’t tag anyone though I would like to tag my daughter and my sister. Maybe I can get them to do guest posts. I doubt it but I’ll try.

    I Stole a Meme From a Stranger!! Get To Know Me Even More If That’s Possible!!

    I put in a search for a meme and found this one at grannyhall’s blog. I did leave her a comment that I was stealing it and hoped she didn’t mind. I’ve done a similar one but this one has a few more questions plus I already forgot how I answered the duplicate questions so we can see how my thoughts change in a short period of time.

    1. What time did you get up this morning?

    When my eyes opened. About 9:30 as usual.

    2. Do you prefer diamonds or pearls?

    No question, diamonds. Hell, I get them for free from the daughter.

    3. What was the last movie you saw in a cinema?

    Indiana Jones, though so far this summer Iron Man is the bomb.

    4. What is your favorite TV show?

    Obviously, “Heroes” because I have watched 23 episodes in the past few days. I also love
    “Jericho” , “Torchwood”, “Lost”. There are probably more that I have forgotten.

    5. What do you usually eat for breakfast?

    Jimmy Dean lite breakfast sandwich. 5 points and filling because of all the protein.

    6. What’s your middle name?

    Ann with an E. If you throw in my confirmation name you can add Elizabeth after my mother.

    7. What food do you dislike?

    Well, you don’t get fat disliking too many foods but I do have a couple. Pickles and olives, oh, and cucumbers.

    8. What’s your favorite CD at the moment?

    Don’t really buy CDs anymore. I just listen to my playlist on the computer. Of course today I’m listening to Boz Scaggs.

    9. What kind of car do you drive?

    Whatever they leave me in the driveway which includes a 2003 Subaru Outback LL Bean Edition (my favorite because it has Sirius Radio), a 1999 black Nissan Altima, (actually my old car which I put in my daughter’s name) a 1991 BMW (the wasband’s car).

    10. What’s your favorite sandwich?

    Grilled Ham and cheese. Now I use WW bread and cheese and measure out 2 oz. of ham but it still tastes good.

    11. What characteristic do you despise?


    12. What’s your favorite item of clothing?

    Anything that actually fits me at this point. Right now I have 4 pair of capris, 2 pair of jeans, and 3 t-shirts. That’s my whole wardrobe. FOR NOW!!!!

    13. If you could go anywhere in the world on vacation, where would you go?

    England. I want to see the countryside of England and Stonehenge.

    14. Are you an organized person?

    Not even a little to my daughter’s chagrin. She’s told me she wouldn’t even cook in my kitchen the way I have it set up. I don’t know what she is talking about. I can find everything.

    15. Where do you want to retire to?

    I am retired. So I assume this is it. Cape Cod, not bad though.

    16. What was your most recent memorable birthday?

    My most recent birthday. Dumbass question. It’s the only one I can remember.

    17. What are you going to do when you finish this?

    Certainly, not anything to do with cooking or cleaning. Don’t forget I just had a facet block. I guess I can’t milk that one anymore. My back feels fairly decent. Plus I’m alone today so there’s no one to give me sympathy about anything. But I’m still not cooking or cleaning. I will be watching more episodes of “Heroes”. I’m going to watch all two seasons if it’s the last thing I do.

    18. Furthest place you are sending this?

    Dumbass question!!!!

    19. Person you expect to fill it out first?

    2 dumbass questions in a row.

    20. What’s on your bathroom counter?

    We don’t have a counter but we do have a thing in there that you put stuff in and on. I’ll go take a photo. Be right back.


    21. Are you a morning person or a night owl?

    NIGHT OWL!!!!

    22. What’s your shoe size?

    Good lord, I haven’t worn a pair of shoes in 30 years. I even wore Birkenstocks to my daughter’s wedding. They are a European size 36. I started wearing Crocks this winter. My daughter got them for me. I don’t even know what size they are. She was afraid I would fall on the ice in my Birks.


    23. Any pets?

    My three kitty boys, Yoda, Red and Blue.

    24. Any new & exciting news you’d like to share?

    I share everything here as it happens. You guys really do get a blow by blow description of my life as it happens.

    25. What did you want to be when you were little?

    A teacher.

    26. How are you today?

    Like I try to be everyday. Awesome, happy and chillin’.

    27. What’s your favorite flower?

    Today, Lilies of the Valley.

    28. What’s the next date you’re looking forward to?

    If my eyes open up in the morning that’s the date I’m looking forward to.

    29. What are you listening to right now?

    Low Rider by War. I am rockin’. Next is Janice Joplin on my playlist then Buffalo Springfield.

    30. What’s the last thing you ate?

    Last night when I came home from the concert I had some garden vegetable crackers.

    31. Do you wish on stars?

    No. But there are things I do wish for, mostly having to do with my son.

    32. If you were a crayon, what color would you be?

    Sort of a dumbass question but I’ll answer it anyway. I would be yellow.

    33. How is the weather right now?

    74 degrees, 80% humidity and cloudy. YUCK!!!

    34. Who was the last person you spoke to on the phone?

    Someone who works with Sarah reporting that they can’t work tomorrow which is Sarah’s day off and I hope she doesn’t have to work because she and her hubby are on their mini vacation on the Island staying in her apartment right above the store.

    35. Favorite soft drink?

    Hansen’s diet ginger ale. Yummy. They don’t use aspartame. They use Splenda which is a little better.

    36. Favorite restaurant?

    I rarely eat out. I guess I would say the British Beer Company, on the water in Falmouth, Fishmonger’s on the water in Woods Hole and Shucker’s Raw Bar, only open in the summer because it is outdoor eating in Woods Hole. Fishmonger’s considers itself a natural food restaurant. They serve both vegetarian and meat dishes. Great atmosphere.


    37. Hair color.

    Brown and gray.

    38. What was your favorite toy as a child?

    My Barbie Doll. I got the first one the first year it came out

    1959 the first Barbie.

    39. Summer or Winter

    Autumn, it should have been included.

    40. Do you like your hair?


    41. Chocolate or vanilla?

    Chocolate but I love the smell of vanilla extract.

    42. Coffee or tea?


    43. Do you prefer your friends e-mail or call you?

    I only have two friends that call me and I like talking to them. I love talking to my family on the phone and probably do it for a couple of hours a day even though they either live with me or live one street over.

    44. When was the last time you cried?

    I honestly can’t remember. I don’t cry these days like I used to. Thanks Zoloft.

    45. What’s under your bed?

    Don’t know, don’t want to know.

    46. What did you do last night?

    Went to see Boz Scaggs. DUH!!!

    47. What are you afraid of?

    Something bad happening to my children.

    48. Salty or sweet?

    Salty, though I keep away from salt now because of blood pressure. I don’t like sugar all that much but I love starchy foods.

    49. How many keys are on your key ring?

    Dumbass question. Who Cares?????

    50. How long have you been at your current job?

    Yea right.

    51. Favorite day of the week?

    Every day.

    52. Do you make friends easily?

    Yes, too easily because I prefer not hanging out with non family members too often though I do have an extended family. People who aren’t related to me but I consider family like most of my daughter’s friends. They can pop over anytime and I am always happy to see them. My best friends Cindy and Nancy I consider family.

    53. How many brothers & sisters do you have?

    One of each.

    54. Are your parents still married?

    I guess so. They were married when they died so I guess if there is a heaven they are up there together. Though I’ll bet my Dad is flirting with all the young ladies.

    55. Do you like finding little details about your friends?

    I know everything about my friends at home but I love finding out about my blogging friends. That’s the fun in getting to know them. Some hold back more than others but that’s OK. The internet can be a scary place to let it all hang out like I do but I don’t give a shit who knows what about me.

    A Ganked Meme

    As Betme would say I ganked this meme from Teeni.

    Here are the rules:

    Step One – pull out a book on the book shelf.

    Step Two – go to page 123.

    Step Three – read and write out the 5th sentence.

    Step Four – tag 5 more people.


    Now I have to get up, get to my room and get out a book. This could take a while because chances are I’ll get to my room and forget why I’m in there then I’ll come back in here without a book and have to go in my room again. This could happen numerous times before I actually remember to grab a book.

    Well, I did it. I went in my room, I kid you not, saw my Advil, grabbed one and here I am back at the computer without a book. Fuckity, Fuck. Oh, and I stopped off in the kitchen to heat up my supper in the microwave. Friday night is always leftovers.

    OK, It’s Saturday now and I still haven’t gotten the damn book. I’m going to do it right now. No, really I am. Seriously, I’m going to. Honestly, for real this time. Do cookbooks count? They’re in this room. No? Ok, I’ll be back!! (think of Arnold).

    Here we go:

    “Over the apparent location of the tomb, arched around it as if to prove its absolute association with that spot, I read the words BARTOLOMEO ROSSI.”

    This is from the book “The Historian” by Elizabeth Kostova. This book got a lot of good reviews. You can read reviews on Amazon. It’s one of those books you either love or don’t. I loved the fact that it was a well written book with vampires as the subject but not your bloodsucking gory kind of vampire book. This is a look into the life of the very real Vlad Tepes, the man Dracula is based on.


    I found it to be a page turner, some reviewers felt she made it too long. It’s a very descriptive book about Romania and other parts of the world where the main character went to do her research on her family history and The Count. I found it to be very suspenseful, rich with history and for me, a page turner. It took the author 10 years to write it. She traveled to all the places she wrote about in Eastern Europe and did tons of research for the book to make it historically accurate. It’s her first book so evidently she probably won’t have another one until about 2015 at the rate she writes (Good God, I’ll be 66). I really couldn’t put it down. They are going to make it into a movie which I have a feeling will not be able to get across what the book does but then does any movie? Most often the book is better.

    When my sister was a teenager she was reading the book “Dracula” in bed one night and a damn bat banged into her window. I’m going to ask tell her to leave a comment to back me up on this one because it sounds so not true.


    Vampire bats recognize individual prey by the unique sounds of the prey’s breathing according to a study in BMC Biology. Researchers examined the ability of vampire bats to detect breathing cues from prey items.

    Just wanted to leave you with something to think about. Sweet Dreams!!!
