Ehhh What’d You Say?

Because We All Need A Little Levity, Sing Along Song Of The Day 🎤

Ehhh – I love sound effects. Go on click it :); you know you want to.

After many years wearing a headset for work and listening to blaring music, I cannot hear as well as I once did.  I am better about it not bothering me when I have to ask someone to repeat themselves. Better to ask  What’d you say? than to pretend I heard something that I didn’t.  One can get in muchos trouble that way.

This afternoon Lulu and I had our hair done.  Me the usual covering the roots and Lulu an asymmetrical pixie cut and dark chestnut brown.  Lots of hair hit the floor.  Sometimes she is fearless with her look.  I need to remember that can translate into other fearlessness and why not in a good way??  I am only allowing positive thoughts!!!

She looks adorable.  To keep the look, she needs wax spray.  It’s a thing y’all.  And we bought some.  As I checked out what I heard was that’ll be $165.

Ehhh, what?  

Followed by $21.65 <insert look of J-Dub’s confusion>

Cuz what I heard again was $165

Ehhh what?  

Followed by $21.65 <insert, look of J-Dub’s understanding>

Oh thank goodness!!  Lulu was gonna have to melt some crayons for that wax.  Lol!

Of course, that is not all.  Why no.  I am on a roll.  As we drive along, the song Attention by Charlie Puth comes on.  I hear this song at least once a day five days a week.  I have no idea what the words are but I think they are weird.  The conversation goes something like this:

Me: What the hell is turtle on my knee?

Lulu: What do you mean?

Me: The song, (I sing) you’ve been running round, running round, running round throwing that turtle on my knee

Lulu: Turd all on my name (she did not say this, though it is what I heard)

Me: What is a turd all on my name mean?

Lulu:  Turd?  I said DIRT all on my name.  You know talking trash about someone. Trashing talking is an expression from your era right?

Me: Yea it is.  Well I guess he is not saying you just want to touch me

Lulu: The title mom, he is saying You just want attention.  I think you do too!

Me:  Lol!  Tis true I sure to DO!!!!

Take a listen peeps and tell me what you hear!   Attention by Charlie Puth   I picked a video that has the lyrics for ya.  You can thank me later 😉

As always more to come.

What’s your favorite concert memory?

Music To My Ears, Sing Along Song Of The Day 🎤

From FB, names removed, posted 3 years ago today:

TBT – this time an event picture, not a people picture. And oh what a event it was … right friends? V’s  sweet mom stood in line outside McCreless Mall for who knows how long to get us these fabulous seats to my first ever concert ~ Rush! I threw the Scorpions ticket in for good measure. I remember such good times on Monticello, listening to Rush 2112, Scorpions Animal Magnetism and Aerosmith Toys in the Attic. V’s brother had the best sound system. We’d stand on the bed head board so we could put our ears closer to the speakers and jam this mother out! Love you guys XOXOXOXO

I Am Awed And Amazed – Subtitle What’s That Got to Do With Nasty

Because We All Need A Little Levity, Sing Along Song Of The Day 🎤

“A” cubed … no that’s 3 …

What is “A” to the 4th power anyway?

I am a grammar nerd not a math brainiac

My favorite source code Mr. Google says quartic or tesseract

I’m not quite sure which one I like

Both sound quite nasty


Now I have gone way down the rabbit hole

I am Mrs. Peter Cotton Tail

Or Ms. Jill Chili Willy Cotton Tail, independent, feisty

but this ain’t about that …

THIS is about why I Am Awed And Amazed or A tesseracted

If you have made it this far, be prepared to be let down

Am Awed And Amazed very easily

I ordered my photos for the tax appraisal protest y’all. baby and NO this is NOT a plug for the behemoth that is Wally World.  THIS is a plug for advances in technology. Technology which made my procrastinating ass lucky!

Back in the olden days of yore, I would have taken pictures with camera <gasp> and sent the film off to be developed <gasp> and paid out the you know what for pictures that may or maybe not be sub-par.  Screening negatives ahead of time was all but unheard of.  Why?  do that and you expose the film!  And loading the camera. What … A … Royal … Pain … In … The … Ass!!!! Many a time I’d be snapping away only to realize much later than the film was not advancing 😦

Who remembers being surprised when you went through the envelope?  Kind of fun but not. Lol! The cost again Mrs. Frugal is at it.  So much money wasted on blanks.  And now I am nasty again. Or Miss Jackson. Go back, click the link and be transported to 1986.  SIng Along Song of the Day.  Go ahead, I’ll wait.  I am about done anyway.

My prints will be ready in one hour.  All I did was click some snaps with my iPhone and upload to  I was able to select what I wanted and adjust as necessary.  All for the low low price of 19 cents per picture.

I even threw in some non-protest pics of the smiling faces of Pony boy, Wise, Lulu, Popo and Big B on Father’s Day. I made a solemn promise to Pony that I would never post to said pics to social media.  Otherwise he would continue to flip the bird <nasty> or spotlight making the photos un-usable.  Surprise, surprise!  I kept my promise by loop-hole maybe because writing about these sentimental photos is not the same as showing them.

As always, more to come.





Because I’m the Best Mom Ever

14 To Infinity, Life, Music To My Ears, Sing Along Song Of The Day 🎤

I had no idea how to tag this …  14 to Infinity, Life, Music To My Ears, or Sing Along Song of the Day so, I tagged them ALL.

Last night, Wednesday June 14, 2017 in the year of our Lord, Metallica came back to San Antonio, Texas.  WorldWired Tour 2017! Fuck yea!!! Take a peek at this San Antonio Current Article.

I got tickets way back when before they sold out to surprise Billy Bob.  He was not surprised.  His mom broke him and he says that he is done with everything.  That my friends is a downer and a story for another day.  Anyway, I had planned to go with Lulu instead but that too is a story for another day.  Enter Sandman (I hear tell that is how they closed out the show) Errr … I mean Enter Pony Boy.

My son-shine, first-born loves Metallica.  I used to joke “is it bad that my 3-year-old knows all the words to One and Enter Sandman?”  Because he did, at age 3!!!! He used to think Sad But True was Sad Patrol and he’d sing along at the top of his lungs.  We never corrected him.  It was cute and to this day when I hear Metallica – Sad But True, I too sing along “Sad Patrol” at the top of my lungs.

Anyway, I offered him my tickets; I just could not see them going to waste.  I took the tickets to him Sunday and Lulu stayed for a long visit.  When I worry about them not being close since they are 9 1/2 years apart, I have to remember days like Sunday.  Anyway, Pony was going to attend with his buddy B Bomb.  Turns out B Bomb just saw them in Houston.  He was going to go again but when Pony found out who was opening act, last-minute, he told his buddy, you’re out and Wise is in.

And today I called to get my re-cap of the show.  I had to hear it straight from him!  That’s our thing.  I was the cool mom who took him and friends to Ozzfest for his 15th birthday.  Later, he used to download me on all the concerts he attended.  I kind of missed that.

The Pros:

  1. Show itself spectacular.  A lot of songs from the Black Album.  I will be hunting YouTube for some big four drum thing they did in the middle of the show.
  2. Good seats, huge screens where they played videos like military clips during One, Cliff in memorial while Robert played Burton’s epic base solo to Pulling Teeth (I would have flipped my lid!!!!!!!)
  3. Pyrotechnics that burned his face (not literally) but he could feel the heat.

The in Between:

  1. They ran out of cups for beer … not that they cared since beer was $8 bucks a pop.  They stuck with non-alcoholic beverages.
  2. Food sucked, only stale popcorn since Wise did not have her epi-pen, they had to be careful.

The Cons:

  1. $20 to park … in some guys front yard … on Cherry Street.  Locals know about Cherry Street.  The Alamodome parking lot was exclusive to those with pre-paid parking passes.  Had I known I would have got one … I didn’t.
  2. He did not get my text on the clear bag rule so they had to return to car to drop Wise’s purse and then go back again in 100 degree heat.
  3. When they left, it was hell getting home because of the way traffic was routed.  Better than drop off / pick up.  Wife of a work friend waited over 2 hours to pick her husband from the drop off.   She got there at 11:30 … you do the math 🙂

I was having a little seller’s remorse about giving away MY tickets but now I am grinning ear to ear.  Strolling down memory lane.  Rock on wit ur bad selves.

As always, more to come.
