HAPPY FUCKING EVERYTHING


Ho hum, just another day....Babs walked over and I took her to Jack and Diane's for BBQ, which was ok, but we were more impressed with the new 80037 inch tv screen..It had the best color on any tv I have ever seen...So we pretended to watch Cal and the Air Force play football, and made fun of all the names for the bowls...I remember when they had like 8 bowl games and now they have a bowl game for everybody and their brother..So we decided by this time next year we were going to have the Babs and Jackiesue Bowl and charge lots of money to not only play in it but to watch it..Then we drove to the Dollar Store where we ran into Inky..who was pretending like he was helping hang up the clearance sign in front of the store...I wasn't fooled...went inside and said howdy to Sara(David's youngest daughter), and introduced Babs to everyone. Ran into one of the patrons from the library who complained that I had all the good books checked out and everyone had to wait till I read them before they could get to them...Told him I was reading as fast as I could...Then Inky's wife Anessa showed up and we talked about her drunk friend who fell on her and almost broke her arm...then Inky wanted to know if I liked milk..thinking this was a trick question I just looked at him and grinned...He let me know it was ok, to tell the truth he had an in with a guy that gave him lots of unpasteurized cows milk with a inch of cream on top of the bottle and he would bring me some..also had some homemade sausage and ring bologna that he would bring over too. Then Anessa told me how when she was a kid her mother would put the cream into a empty mayo jar and she would roll it around the floor and shake it until it became butter..Then I told the story of how I tried to get into the butter churn and it and me when down 15 steps and put a scar in the middle of my forehead that I pointed out to them...Babs is wandering around the store shopping and pretending she didn't know any of us..Anessa said she would steal me some more silver stars from the Wolf Christmas trees, but they had some just like them at the other dollar store that I could get and paint silver..So that she won't have to do prison time for stealing stars I decided that would be the best thing for me to do...We came home and Babs walked back to her apt...Then Patsy who works at the Community Grocery called and wanted to give me her car and $20 to be her and Andy's designated driver tonight..Said I would take her car, but no money, that I had always told her I would be her designated driver ...and with all the cops out tonight it was a smart thing for her to do...So I made a huge pan of green salsa cornbread, and 2 pans full of Stuffed Cabbage to go along with the pot of black eyed peas with ham...Took Patsy and Andy to Mynar's Bar, where my old boyfriend James Hand is playing.(check my blogroll to hear him)..Thought about going so I could hear him play and maybe say howdy...(he's the one that he and I used to rock the trailer out at his mama's house in Tokio)but the smoke in Mynar's is thicker than my black eyed pea soup...Plus I already had my dose of second hand smoke sitting in Jack and Diane's eating BBQ with Babs..that girl smooookes...


So....here I am, it's 7:00pm and I'm in for the night. Until Patsy and Andy need a ride..bars close up tonight at Midnight(1am on Saturdays)..so that should really rain on their celebrating come new years..huh huh!..I told everyone that I had plenty of food and if they wanted to sober up to come to the house...That should be fun.................................yeah, right...
Hope that you're new years is a lot more exciting than mine..I'm fixing to go put Mr. Brooks in the vcr and see if I can stay awake till midnight...

fuckme till the ball drops....

One of my fondest memories from early on in my relationship with Derwood, we were sitting at his moms and his mom and dad were passing a big pickle jar full of some stuff in it back and forth. To be discreet about my ignorance, I leaned over and whispered "What are they doing?" to which my lovely (then boyfriend) guffawed loudly, "THEY'RE MAKING BUTTER!!!"

Oy. And I still married him.

My New Years is even less exciting than yours. Hubby is watching hockey, kids are playing Wii and I am waiting for my blankets to dry since I washed my bedding this afternoon and forgot to dry the blankets.

Fuck me till the ball drops too! LOL!

We're having black-eyed peas, boiled cabbage, and hog jowl tomorrow for dinner. Looking forward to it, too.

Never had "real" milk before. Probably a bit different from the overly processed stuff I get at the grocery store.

Hope your Christmas was merry and your New Year a happy one. I was tagged for a meme and am passing it on to you 7 weird or unusual facts about yourself.

rox:i think derwood is a keeper...I have had my laundry in baskets by the front door for 4 days...I swear I will make it to the laundry mat...soon..or maybe not..everyone here knows how i like to lie about doing the laundry...that's what i had 3 kids for..and now that they are grown and moved away..I am stuck with doing my own dirty clothes..fuckity fuck fuck fuck...
by the way..it's 1957 here..not 1975...
josh:real cows milk that hasn't been pasterized is so sweet it's almost like it has sugar in it..I actually can remember the milk man..who wold pick up your empty bottles and you would leave a note with them for what you wanted and he would leave it on the porch..butter, milk, sour cream,buttermilk, etc..and the bread was delivered by a guy in a bed truck...and they both wore white uniforms with little hats...
if you ever get a chance to have some..go for it..it's wonderful...
hog jowls?...dang..your more country than me..
chrisie:dang.I have done that meme about 6 times..and think every one here knows all the weird things about me...but will try and come up with something new..or I'll just lie and make shit up..
\happy new years to you too..

I remember at my aunts house in Tenn. Going out to the cow shed, (not enough land for a real barn.) milking the cow and bringing the raw milk back in. She then took half of it and put it away in the icebox after we had some. Then she boiled the shit out of the rest of it for us to take with us. It was a lot better before the boiling.
You be careful out there driving.
Being a designated driver is a dangerous job. You have to remember that tonight one out of every two drivers is probably drunk.
Four minutes till twelve HAPPY NEW YEARS!!!!

I love the scene you painted of you guys in the Dollar Store. There is nothing more typically American than people meeting up in a Dollar Store and yacking for a while. Good times!
