The Last F-List of August

It’s Friday again, every time I turn around. How about a list for the last full week of summer?

I forgot to tell you the answer to the question on the South Haven post. The question was I’m gonna jerk a —- in your tail. Friend Warren may have gotten it right, unless his answer really wasn’t a typo. He said ‘know’, but the answer was knot. What say you, Warren?

Mousey went back to school last week, so her summer was already officially over.

She said physics is hard.

I have to take a picture of her in her new birthday present! It’s a Speedo that looks like it has mermaid scales! She said she thought the children she teaches swim lessons to would like it. SO cute!!!!!

She has a sore throat. That is not nice on your birthday week.

The Boy and The Dane have also started back to Moody. He said Greek is already kicking his tail.

The Boy’s platelet count went from 490,000 to 70,000 in a week. It could be safe to say that he is not in the 90th percentage of folk for whom the Promacta works.

Unfortunately, this has always been the case for him. His ITP is a particularly stubborn brand.

He said he is looking colorful with petechaie and bruises.

He is in the process of getting a new doctor at a new hospital near his residence in Chicago. Please pray that God steers him to a wise doctor.

The Ab-Cat received lots of good feedback on her ACL Icebucket Challenge! What a fun way to bring attention and money to a deadly serious thing.

The first 2015 Ford Mustang rolled off the assembly line yesterday!!!!!!!!

This is the reason Honey has been working like a D.O.G.

WOO HOO for Honey and the entire plant!!!!!!!

Not that anything is going to change just yet.

Did you know the Mustang has been in continuous production production for 50 years?

50 years is about how long it feels like Honey has been working like a D.O.G.!!!

I recently found some pictures I took from May. I barely remember taking them. Here you go.

This is how my family reacts when I try and take a commemorative picture. Uncooperative in the smile department. They look like crabs, don’t they?

Here we have the last day of BSF at the beginning of May. I am Johnny on the spot with these! Our fearless, previous teaching leader, Heifer Lynn! We have BSF leaders workshop next Wednesday, and for the first time in 7 years, she will not be there. Extreme sad face. I will miss you, love, Heifer Ann.

173

This was our administration team at BSF. We had a very fun year!! I am so sorry about the weird cropping of the picture, I realized that we all have our nametags on and that goes against the privacy clause I have on the blob.

Here we have Jip The Farm Dog, Capri K, Dear Sandra and Marilyn, whose blob name needs to be something about the fact she is not drinking the Kool Aid! All loverly ladies!

168

Did I ever mention who our NEW teaching leader actually was? Well, drum roll please, it’s JIP THE FARM DOG!!!!!

Girlfriend is highly qualified for the job, having been around BSF for the majority of her life. She was in the program growing up. Her mother is a former teaching leader, so she has first hand knowledge of living the life. She has been a children’s leader and a class administrator for many, many years. She had big plans for this coming year, her first with both of her sons away at college. But God has chosen to stretch her like a pretzel and she is being obedient to His call.

I am confident she is up to the task.

All I know is, if she can train me, 30 or so other women should be a piece of cake!!!! I am looking forward to a wonderful new year!

Why is it when you walk near your pets they move out of your way in the exact wrong direction?? Right into your path and almost lay you flat???

Our Lucy excels in this skill.

Our Halle Berry never moves, which is good, you just walk around her. None of those split second, herky jerky decisions on which way to go. Thank you Halle Baby.

Mia can go either way.

I made this burrito bowl for dinner last night. Except not in the crock pot. Long story, but I will next time. I liked it. I will have to serve the black beans separately in the future if I want Mousey to partake.

I was cleaning out a cupboard and found some Glade plug in thingy in a citrus scent. I plugged it in the coat room where the litter boxes are, because that seemed appropriate. ***Disclaimer*** I never smell the litter boxes in our home, they get changed regularly, but it seemed like a good spot. Thank you for your time.

The citrus smell is so strong, I don’t think it’s going to make it.

This is causing me to remember a conversation we had in South Haven where we talked about this very subject. I seem to recall someone saying they are not good for you. Can anyone help me out here?

I’m pretty sure the cats don’t care about either of the smells.

Speaking of the felines. There was a fly in the house yesterday and OH.MY.WORD., I did not know those portly older women could move so quickly! That’s a lot of girth units moving at a high rate of speed!

Flies are the best present in the world for cats. I wish I felt that way.

Enjoy your weekend. I’ll be back tomorrow with The Weekly Sy. They sent some good ones!

South Haven 2014

Hi Guys! It’s good to be back! Much fun was had on the 6th annual trip to Lake Michigan!

002 

We all met at Three Good Kids house to load up her van. Every year we think we will never get it all in, but every year we do! Suitcases, tote bags, other bags, pillows, a rolled up mattress pad, coolers, beach chairs and us and our purses! There were also many water bottles, a roll of paper towels, other flotsam and a watermelon jammed in a perfect nook. We were loaded for bear.

loaded for bear

 Thoroughly equipped, as for a demanding task or confrontation.

You are most welcome.

It was brought to my attention again this week that not all are familiar with the ins and ism’s that I was raised with. While playing a game of Taboo, I was trying to get my team to say the correct word, I offered up the expression “ I’m gonna jerk a _____ in your tail!”. They did not answer correctly. I will see if any of you can get the right answer in the comments!

From the left; The Oreo Mom, The Peanuts Champ, The Mayor, Three Good Kids, and our new friend, Shaq 2!! I was SO happy to have another tall gal to vacation with me and the shortest women I know!!!

004

We travelled across The Mitten uneventfully, but as soon as we arrived in South Haven the heavens unleashed. Torrential rain, flooding streets, downed branches and a strong desire to have a higher speed of windshield wipers, but Three Good Kids navigated the van like a pro. We arrived a little later than expected to a waning storm and no electricity. The power came on within the hour and all was well.

It’s a purty town with a cute downtown area, darling lake homes and a very nice beach.

010

I pictured a family of critters living in that hole!

015

We made it to a couple sunsets, and as in previous years, sailboats graced my pictures!

019

So lovely. Sigh.

020

There was a fellow who offered to take our picture. Picture a nerdy-ish Justin Long.

He was very nice and patient, taking our picture with multiple phones and cameras and even The Mayor’s iPad. I have to confess that he knew WAY more about my camera than I did. Who knew there was a sunset mode? Not me.

023

We decided to eat at the house more than we have in the past. We have not had much luck with the restaurants, for various reasons, so we cooked two dinners and had one grazers paradise at lunchtime. All were delicious and it was so successful I think it may be repeated next year.

photo

All of the ladies in attendance are part of our monthly Birthday Club. There are more Clubbers that were not able to attend, but since we actually had a birthday girl present, we celebrated! It was fun to wish Shaqtoo a happy day with cupcakes bought stealthily in town earlier in the afternoon!

photo 2

Speaking of being in town, something funny happened when we were there shopping!!! As I was walking down the street I saw a couple that looked very familiar!!! Sure enough, on closer inspection, it was Schmenky’s, and Capri Patt and Deb’s nephew Ben and his wife JoanieK!!!! Fancy that!! I sure wish I had thought to take a picture of them to show y’all, because that was a moment to remember! Small world!

We spent a day at the beach, played games and cards, watched a couple movies, or tried to. I know I stayed up WAY later than my usual bedtime! Of course there was plenty of snacking and talking, funny things, solving world problem things, faith walk things and some tearful things.

032

It was time to travel back across The Mitten before we knew it. We headed to the beach for one last photo shoot until next summer.

037

We loaded the van up a little easier on the way home. Probably halfway home Three Good Kids said something had happened to the van! We limped to an exit and she called her husband. They had travel insurance for towing if you were under 100 miles from home, I think we were around 87 miles from home!!!!! Thank you LORD!

AAA sent a flatbed to tow the van.

041

We had lunch at McDonald’s and hung around at a truck stop until our ride came.

We managed to have fun and find some things to laugh about while waiting.

043

Here is our knight in shining armor! Mr. Three Good Kids came to our rescue!!!!!

045

Thankfully, their van was not horribly broken, as a matter of fact it was fixed before we all got back! Another huge thank you LORD!!!!!

Special thanks to The Peanuts Champ for being our travel planner extraordinaire!!!! We made some new memories this year!!! Until next year!

Gump-isms in Daytona

The other day we went to Daytona Beach. We lunched at the Bubba Gump Shrimp Company, which was cute in a Gump-y sort of way. We are fans of Forrest at our house. We frequently talk like him.

Me and Jenny goes together like peas and carrots.

Stupid is as stupid does.

I’m not a smart man… but I know what love is.

My momma always said, "Life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get."

Im sorry I had to fight in the middle of your Black Panther party.

My name’s Forrest Gump. People call me Forrest Gump.

That’s all I have to say about that.

I’m pretty tired… I think I’ll go home now

Do you have a cough due to cold?

Run, Forrest! Run!

Bubba was my best good friend…
The waiter gave us a little quiz at lunch. We did all right.

064

I had a yummy pear and berry chicken salad. Very pretty.

068

Honey and Mousey had very average fish and chips. Or as we like to say, fish and chimps. The presentation was cute though.

066

It sort of seemed touristy. So-so and not that reasonable. But we still love Forrest.

071

Then we walked down to the world famous Daytona Beach. It was the place to go for spring break when I was in high school. I didn’t go, but that’s what I heard.

Honey wanted to walk down to the pier. He likey the piers.

073

They were building something on the pier.

074

Hence the pier on the world’s most famous beach was closed.

076

We thought we could take a picture from the top of the parking garage and get the ocean in. It didn’t work out as planned.

080

We get this look a lot.

081

So we have some cute photos with a sweet parking garage background.

083

Mousey’s sun tat is coming along nicely. It will look very cool with her LAX uniform.

084

Today we are planning to go down south. Down yonder to Cocoa, Melbourne and Merritt Island. Y’all have a good one.

Christmas Eve 2011 Part Uno

Hi Guys! Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and all was merry and bright! We had a good one and there will continue to be random celebrating throughout the week. We have yet to decorate the annual ugly cutout cookies, and there is still the CareGroup Christmas gathering this Friday to look forward to.

We hosted on Christmas day and once again I am reminded that this whole shebang could not be accomplished without Honey and his skillz in the kitchen. A special, big thank you to Honey, my very own kiss on the cheek from God!

I realize I have been on a bit of an unintended blogging break, and it has been nice. Not that blogging in any way is a nuisance to me, it is usually only a joy, but it was great to not be formulating posts in my mind for a few days. Especially when we had all the hosting business going on. But I am back, and ready to get on the stick!

Because this is another expression I have heard my whole life, and never understood, I goggled it for your viewing pleasure.

Start working, as in I have to get on the stick and start preparing dinner. This synonym for get going or get busy alludes to getting a car going by manipulating the gearshift, or stick. [Slang; early 1900s]

You are most welcome.

We will go back to Christmas Eve, because I need to record everything for future reference. You know, my forgetful brain and all.

As I mentioned, we celebrated on Christmas Eve with our dear friends, The Hostlers and my Dad. Ruby Tuby’s was selected as the place to gather, then we returned to our house for the nonsense that was sure to come. Because with this crowd, nonsense abounds.

Normally, we have Nurse Lauren, on right, take our family picture for the Christmas card. She was spared the arduous task this year because our cousin Lindsay got the tedious job done on Thanksgiving day. I hope you enjoyed the respite Lauren, next Christmas Eve will be back around before you know it!!!

We took pictures of their family instead. And I am here to tell you, they are a much more compliant bunch to photograph!

IMG_8867a

My personal favorite!

IMG_8869

I believe I may have mentioned Rae Babe has had a BANNER year! She got a notion last January to get fit. She picked up that pretend ball and walked, rode her bike, and eventually ran with it! She trained and competed in the 5 K Turkey Trot in downtown Detroit on Thanksgiving Day! She is like Wonder Woman!!!

Hat tip to Autumn, I lifted this picture straight from her Facebook page.

Looking SCRUMTRULESCENT Rae Babe, we are all SO proud of your achievement!!!!!!!

IMG_8871

Love her, love her family!

IMG_8893

Here are the Girls who bravely went to Chicago the week of Christmas. Disney on My IPod Lauren with her companions; I’m Done With Chicago Autumn and My Legs Are Freezing Abby. Abby sang Hakuna Matata for days after returning.

IMG_8899

Grandpa, looking festive in his new holiday sweater, taking in all the nonsense.

IMG_8902

Because we had already had the NutHatch Family Picture of 2011in the bag, there was a surplus of extra time. We decided to get a shot of the kids, in which they each had a turn at being Ruin-ers. Mousey smiled appropriately in all, but sort of ruined them all because she was enduring a splitting headache and had already ‘tatered up.

Lauren’s turn.

IMG_8880

Aut’s having a go and why is Abby blurry?

IMG_8881

The Boy, as usual.

IMG_8882

The Boy number 2.

IMG_8885

There’s a good one!

IMG_8888

And even better!!!

IMG_8883

A lovely evening spent with dear old friends.

I will be back after the Hodgepodge tomorrow for Christmas Eve Part Dos. Thank you for your patience.

The Big and Small of it

Hi Guys! Only 2 more days until Christmas, or as Mousey so lovingly called it, ‘WHAT AM I DOING GOING TO SCHOOL TWO DAYS BEFORE CHRISTMAS?”

Today is her last day of school for the year, which sounds way more exciting than it really is. We are all looking forward to the break where we can lounge together, bake and decorate ugly cookies and make and eat food. PLUS, we have some thrifting to attend to, accompanied by our TWO 50% off entire purchase coo-pins!!

Then there will be a whirlwind of activity, a hunting and gathering all of the many incidentals needed to help The Boy get ready to leave the Mother who labored to give him life, so he can head out to get some learnin’ about God and the Bible, and stuff.

In BIG news, The Boy cleaned his room!!!!!!! In small news, Mousey has not.

In BIG news, I am finished Christmas shopping. In small news, Honey is the worst list maker known to man.

In BIG news, we have finalized plans with our dear friends The Hostler’s for Christmas Eve. In even BIGGER news, we will not be consuming Rachel, as Schmenky was worried about. We have chosen Ruby Tuby’s for it’s healthier cuisine.

In BIG news, I am almost finished with my wrapping and cleaning. In small news, are you ever really finished with your cleaning?

In BIG news, my 30% off Kohl’s coo-pin came in mighty handy this Christmas. In small news, they didn’t have a couple of things I was hoping to purchase using the 30% off coo-pin. It is the way of our world, isn’t it?

In BIG news, I am thoroughly enjoying having Ab-Cat back in the home! We went to lunch yesterday and finished up the Christmas shopping, it was SO nice! In small news, I was not able to go to our friendly neighborhood Coney Island to pick up our Christmas ham because I was fairly certain one more stop would have caused her head to explode.

In BIG news, we ALL went to our friendly neighborhood Coney Island last night to pick up the Christmas ham. We combined it with a tasty dinner. I had fish and chips, or as Honey calls it, fish and chimps. In small news, Honey decided we did not need a 16 pounder and chose a 10 pounder instead. It is now resting quietly in the garage refrigerater, next to its co-meat, the seventeen pound turkey.

In BIG news, in two days we celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ, who came to save the world because we cannot save ourselves. In small news Merry Christmas from The NutHatch Family!!!!

Friday List

!. It snowed last night. I had no idea it was supposed to snow. Only an inch or so, but it is purty.

002

003

005

2. I’m glad Honey put the Big Van in the garage for me last night before he left for work. I like to return it to its home when The Ab-Cat’s Little Van is out of the garage, so I don’t have to squeeze it in like a bear, wedged in a great tightness. The reason I am glad it is garaged? I discovered yesterday morning on my way to BSF that there is no scraper in there. Note to self: find a scraper.

3. I am debating making something low carb for breakfast, I feel like a need to. Tis the season of treats.

4. Only one more week of BSF then a three week break. I like a nice, three week break. That means I’d better get cracking on my presents for the Admin team. We have our own little get together after class on Thursday. I was partially on the ball back during the summer, so I am half done.

008 

I know just who to give each one.

009

I think I am going to make some treats too. This group LIKES the treats.

I feel safe showing you pictures because they are not blob readers.

5. I went to see my Great Aunt Adalene again yesterday. This time joined by my Dad and The Boy. We spent a lovely hour or so talking, laughing and reminiscing. She was trying to quote Psalm 23 and we were all trying to help her remember. Dad finally found a Bible and we read it to her.  She is a Dear and I love listening to her. She kept teasing The Boy about a time he visited her with a loose tooth. They had a lasting joke about finding some pliers to help him out and she remembered this! She gets confused at times, but seriously, sometimes I think she remembers more than I do!

6. Mousey was home sick yesterday. She wiled away her hours by watching The History Channel recount stories from the Holocaust. When I arrived I suggested we catch something I had The Boy DVR for me about the mysteries of The Bermuda Triangle. We are a fun group.

7. I find it ironic that when I was young, three of my interests were The Holocaust, The Bermuda Triangle and The Titanic. What does that say about me? And about the genes I passed down. Morbid is what we are. Shark week is big around here.

8. I keep thinking about making chocolate peanut butter fudge and buckeyes. And drooling just a little bit.

9. It is cold in our house. I am contemplating another cup of tea.

10. Ok, up and at ’em. When I was young I always thought that was “up and Adam”. It made no sense, but I said it anyway.

Have a good weekend. Eat, drink, be merry, and watch The History Channel.

Thrifting For Gold

I believe I may have mentioned that I have been thrifting this week, and I have SCORED! Spell check is insisting that thrifting is not a word. It is totally a word spellcheck. Spellcheck is not a real word.

I think I also confessed that I am trying to add a little color zest to my brown and black wardrobe. A little pop of color, like I have heard on What Not To Wear, or Project Runway, or somewhere.

***BTW, I am happy with the winner of Project Runway!!  The person was  one of my picks all along, and I can say no more about the winner because Rae Babe has not seen it yet and I would not want to give it all away!!! I can divulge that I was a little afraid there for a moment when the winner was up against my VERY LEAST FAVORITE designer. And considering that last year our VERY LEAST FAVORITE designer won, I was preparing to swear off the runway for LIFE. All is well on the Runway this morning, whew.!***

Back to the color pops.

These will do nicely in the pop department, either under or over a solid color with solid pants. I have no printed pants, because for me, that is just wrong.

Love the pink flowered Liz Claiborne sweater for $4.99, the multi colored Cyrus (never heard of that brand) will look darling under an already owned black sweater, $2.99, and the bottom print was Talbots for $4.99, LOVE them all!

021

$4.99 is more than I regularly pay for thrift store clothing, I do not regret these purchases, because I heart them so, and I need some new BSF and church clothes, but I decided to challenge myself to not spend more than $2.99, unless I REALLY loved something. So far, so good.

Next up was a Daisy Fuentes blousy top for $2.99. Vintage Suzie top and Merona also $2.99.

024

Here are the staples of my wardrobe. I never have enough white tops, short or no sleeve. And you know how by the end of the season your white tops are not so white anymore? I am there, my Friends! When this phenomenon happens, the old white shirts become walking shirts, and the old walking shirts go in the give away bag.

I discovered something. I like Chico’s white shirts. I have never owned anything by Chico’s, but I am now the proud owner of 2 and they fit like a dream! I did pay $4.99 for one, but only $2.99 for the other. There was an Ann Taylor one that I am also fond of. Everything here except the afore mentioned Chico shirt was $2.99, excluding the green Old Navy tank, it was $1.99. All the white are 1000% better than anything I have been wearing lately! Like new.

026

Since I have purchased clothing for my hindquarters, you can correctly assume that I shopped at Goodwill, where they have the luxury of changing rooms. Something Value World should get on the stick about. That was one of my Mother’s isms, get on the stick. No idea what it really means.

The $4.99 rule did not carry over to hindquarter garments. Cheetah sleep pants, bought because they are SO cute and will make all 3 of my children groan, $2.99. Cropped capri Izod’s $4.99. White Bandolino Blu, also $4.99. Brown Style&Company, $2.99 WOO HOO! White Merona jeans $4.99. Grey Champion sweat pants that can be worn as pants or sleep pants, oh the decisions! $2.99. And finally tan, long David Brooks long pants, $3.99.

028

Honey’s haul of polo shirts, mostly $2.99, maybe a couple sneekers at $4.99. I am most happy about the red one on the right. I told him to find a new red shirt to match his traveling pants. What are those you might ask? I believe The Boy was the one who noticed that Honey always travels in the same outfit. Black track pants with a red strip down the side. The Boy asked him once if those were his Traveling Clothes because he always wore them when flying OR driving on a trip. Honey said he guessed they were!

033

Well, the red shirt he always wore was looking a little …weathered. The true red had given way to an orangy red, and worse yet, he had a little hole in the back, down by his rumpus that was UNACCEPTABLE to me. His excuse was always”but these are my Traveling Clothes!”. He can now retire the orangy red jersey and wear the new true red, non hole by the rumpus one, and we can travel without shame. Not that any of that ever bothered HIM.

Here are some twinkies for the Girls. Transformer sleep pants for The Ab-Cat, at a whopping .99 CENTS and white and black staples for Miss Moustine, all $2.99.

031

And that is what we have so far!

Jammed By A Log

Oh dear, I have been a spotty blogger this week. I can blame a little of it on the schedule thing, but mostly it has been lack of imagination.

Why is that? Sometimes there are so many things to tell, almost as smooth as water flowing from the tap, and other times… well, you know.

Times like this, I resort to a list. It just seems to solve a lot of the mental logjam. Makes it easier to get past whatever it is that has plopped right down in my brain and seems a little too comfortable there.

Here we go, a small smattering of the week.

1. Mousey went for what we thought would be her last ever orthodontic appointment. Only to be told they would see us again in May. Everything is fine, I guess it is just their way.

2. I then met Jip the Farm Dog and The Heifer for lunch at our brand new Olga’s! It was a very nice place to while away a couple of hours, but I nominate it for very WORST parking lot in our town. Barely any parking in front, more parking in the back, which would be fine if you could enter the building from the back. But no, some genius decided to have every one hoof it around to the front door. Tell your great idea to the mom of several young’uns, herding them around while toting a baby carrier. Perfectly fine in the nicer seasons, perfectly not fine in the winter when all one wants to do is get the heck out of the Michigan winter. And our winter up here in The Mitten seems to be getting longer. Global warming and all.

3. Lunch was fun though! I am a fan of Olga sauce and zucchini fries. Oh, and I like those gals enormously.

4. Tuesday was a thrift day!!! Mousey and I made plans to thrift with a mom and daughter she works with in Sunday School. They keep the energetic 4 year olds busy. Playing with them, doing crafts, making sure they play nice with each other and telling them about Jesus.

We had been trying to get together for a couple of weeks. The first week didn’t work for them, then the second week was the week before my 50% coo-pin kicked in, and I could not justify spending full price for the pleasure of shopping one week earlier. So we waited one more week. We even had a coo-pin to share!

As usual, Mousey had a cartful.

I was looking for Ab-Cat. I found her a few things, but unfortunately, they have been washed and put away.

I found 2 things for myself. A hooded vest, as I am one to appreciate a good vest. Plus I can’t imagine I will ever need to wear a coat again. Seriously, I can’t even remember the last time I was cool. Oh and sleep pants. But you knew that, didn’t you?

Here is where I would like to show a couple pictures, but the computer is resisting me. It is actually just ignoring me, and that is rude.

Mousey and the daughter want to go together again because the daughter said Mousey was the best shopper EVER! I think that can be arranged!

5. I have talked a LOT about the movie Temple Grandin this week. A LOT. Many people I have come into contact with have heard me. It is a seriously good movie and you need to see it. Rent it, get it from the library, put it in your Netflicks que. I’m gonna ask y’all next week if you have seen it. Come on, get on the stick.

6. OK, there is another ism I have heard all my life that on further reflection, MAKES NO SENSE. Here you go:

get on the stick

Start working, as in I have to get on the stick and start preparing dinner . This synonym for get going or get busy alludes to getting a car going by manipulating the gearshift, or stick . [Slang; early 1900s]

You are welcome.

7. Have a good weekend!

A New Word For The NutHatch Dictionary

During The Capri Week Extravaganza, Honey created a new word. Out of thin air.

He said he couldn’t use something, because it was all joofered up. I specifically asked him how that was spelled. It could have been joophered, you know. I then clarified what it meant. It meant exactly what it sounds like it meant. All messed up, broken down, ruined, not right, put together poorly.

Since then, we have all been using it with abandon. We like it so much, we are inventing new ways to insert it into conversation. As a verb, a noun, adjective, and preposition.

Lines From Virginia

When I was in Virginia with Mrs. Schmenkman, we listened to the satellite radio in her car. Sixties, seventies, and eighties music. Very little nineties.  We also listened to comedy channels.

There are two things that stand out in my mind. The first was listening to the song Ventura Highway, by America. What on earth do they mean by the line “alligator lizards in the air”? What is an alligator lizard? Why would it be in the air? I have always wondered about that line.

The second was from the comedy channel. I am sorry to say that I don’t remember the comics name. By his own description, he was a fat man. He referred to himself as a fat man at a school function. He said a guidance counselor came up to him after the show to ask him not to use the word “fat”, as it could be offensive to some of the students. He said alright, what word would she like him to use? She said husky. He said he passed the husky phase in junior high. He again asked her for another word.

She finally came up withbiscuit-us ”. He wanted to know what the heck THAT was? She said, you know when you peel the paper off of a can of biscuits and it POPS? That is “biscuit-us. Overstuffed, I guess.

WELL, I will be adding that little word to my vocabulary. It will be in my top two heavy /husky describers. Sharing top billing with fluffy.

Adding it to The NutHatch Dictionary. Alphabetically.  Immediately.

Today is Miss Mousey Kristina NutHatch’s last day as a sophomore.  Bring on the summer already!!!!!!!
