things I'm pretty sure I never thought I'd say

  • This Jonas Brothers CD is pretty damn good!
  • How do you lose a pair of panties in a public restroom, anyway?
  • Who'd have thought Brian Austin Green would have turned out so HOT! Peach Pit (me) After Dark? Yes, please, David Silver.
  • I can't believe Backpacking Dad has been showing up so far down in my comments lately.
  • This super short haircut doesn't make my head look like a festering tumor at all.
  • Sweetie, there's two girls from school on the phone for you.*
  • Face Puncher is a great name for a baby!
  • Pointing to your crotch and saying, "Game on!" is not really a turn on.**
  • It doesn't freak me out at all that FTN knows everything about me.
  • Can you find something quiet to do while Mommy watches Steve on your old Blue's Clues videotapes?
  • Your face smells like mozzarella cheese.
  • What would Jesus do?
  • I have so many things I could write about that I can't imagine I'll ever write a random filler blog post and then ask people to tell me something they never thought they'd say!***

* Even though I knew it was bound to happen.

** OK...it sort of is. I mean, I let it be one for what it's worth.

*** I don't really have so many things I could write about. That I've stretched this business out for nearly two years is pretty damn amazing. Some days, this is what you're bound to get from me. So, you know, you can tell me something you never thought you'd say, or whatever else that's on your mind (like, perhaps, the way I can make the phrase 'Peach Pit (me) After Dark' sound really creepy).

String cheese - it's tasteless yet somehow always fulfilling.

And if you really lust for Steve, you really should check out his post Blue's Clues CDs.

I love Steve from Blue's Clues. Actually I liked that entire show (sad, I know). Even had a Blue's Clues computer game.

I don't like the new guy on Blue's Clues. He's a dork.

At least you didn't point to a crotch and say it smelled like mozzarella cheese, right? Because that would just be... EW.

Sounds like something my kids would say. . .

And help me out here. . . You're saying that I shouldn't point to my crotch and say "Game On!" to Molly?

And, just between you and me, I've always thought that 'What does Jesus want me to do?' was a better question; but maybe I'm weird that way. . .

yes, it was amazing how DAG went from a skinny little dork to the amazing hottie that he completely is now. you know what else is amazing? what steven bochco's new lawyer show HAS DONE TO ZAC'S HAIR. it's like he swiped Heath Ledger's or something. Thin, yet crunchy. Receding in the front so let's make up for it with some length in the back. FOR THE LOVE OF LITTLE GREEN APPLES PLEASE SHAVE THE HEAD AND SHOW OFF THAT FAAAAAAAAACE....seriously, I can't even watch the show. What they have done to his hair is just criminal. Especially when you think about how hot he was on NYPD Blue & his guest star turn on Law & Order: SVU.

Always home - Huh, I'm wondering if string cheese and I have something in common.

Will - I say it far more than anyone really should have to!

Cat - Before I even had kids, I used to watch Blue's Clues and Steve on the weekends. He had me at the casual snark!

Sam - This is a safe place for sex toy talk. No worries. Now, I say go buy more. One can never have enough!

zeghsy - Whatever he grew into, my interest in him grew right along with it. Or something like that!

Des - Your Jesus question is probably the more appropriate slant, but it would take up a lot of space on those bracelets!

BP Dad - You should just be so totally in tune with everything I'm doing! If you get hungry when you resume stalking, tap on the window. I'll get you a snack.

Carolyn - Gah! Oh...my...You're a good woman!

Heather - He's brooding and so, so hot!

Lori - After being inundated with some spam comments last week, I'm wondering just how effective those word jumbles are.

Chuck - In all fairness, the crotch move does have it's moments!

Wendy - Sigh...um, how well I know this one...

CT Mom - I asked, and the girls on the phone said they weren't, so you've kept good tabs on yours!

CT Mom - echo!

Choppzs - I'm not sure I could bear the idea of either of my inlaws staying at my house. You're good people!

Bee - That's what I was looking for! Ha!

Sus - Steve was perfection. I love what he's done since!

Des - I can't even imagine saying that, and not because I'm not a man!

ftn - Maybe they know how much you like to chit chat about the panties with the likes of me. Or something like that. I'm not sure. Do we talk about that stuff?

ES - I've said "get your hands from around your brother's neck!" a couple of times. You'd think these kids would learn! Ha!

kateanon - Were you in a midwestern bookstore recently!? :)

Brian - You did well!

mommypie - Wow! I think the thing you never thought you'd say takes the cake...

Andrea - It's totally not bad, isn't it? I dance around here alot to it!

Chas - Now I have my new excuse when the missionaries come around! Tell your husband thank you!

motherbumper - I should have known they were yours! ;)

Savage - Blue's Clues is a once awesome kid's show. But that's not important. What's important is: mmmm, fried chicken!

Shonda - Heh, thank you!

Mandy - You have a 2 1/2 cute reasons for that brain zapping!

dcd - Joe is an uber dork!

Mandy lou - Thank you, dear!

graham's mom - I fear knowing where the scissors are in my house!

hipstk - Tool Man draws the line at donning the flowery panties. I also kinda don't want to see him in them, anyway. I like my men to be in touch with their feminine side while in the man drawers.

Redneck Mommy - I like how your random sayings involve cats, underwear and sliced lines. Or the other words for them. ;)

Sailor - I'm weak. It works far more than I imagined it could.

1blueshi1 - I saw an ad for that show and was outraged at what is goingon with Zac - Not Zac's hair! It is atrocious. It totally turned me off from watching whatever that show is called! Blech.

Bogart - On some women, it rocks harder than others!

Phyllis - Ha! This is why I don't say 'blog' or other 'b' words around my family!

jenboglass - I like to sometimes think they just wear those because they're waiting for me to get to them, and then, after that, all bets - and rings - are off!

twobusy - Earlier this week, we found a pair of panties in the women's restroom at the store. Sadly, someone had to pick them up. Furthering the sad, rather than just tossing them away, the manager made us bag them up and save them, because, you know, someone is probably going to call later and say they're missing a pair of panties. Sigh...

Cocotte - My kids love cereal dinners!

Aunt Becky - amen.

Cece - I never could warm up to him then, but wow, he grew up but good!

zip n tizzy - Alas, I have never seen an episode of Weeds. This is something I apparently need to rectify so I can be prepared for when the phone rings again!

Chat - Nothing wrong with that at all, and hell, if you were in a relationship, you'd just be getting asked when you were getting married or having a baby, so it never ends!

Undomestic diva - Oh! The fancy cereal! We used Cheerios!

bekah - Gah! No kidding why?!

Chag - I just hear bliss, and the subliminal messages that Joe is sending me, telling me he loves me,too! I bypassed the cd cover and went totally all in on the enhanced cd clips and photos. Swoon! Send Zoey over sometime and we can listen together. If she likes Joe, though, she'll need to step off!
