MORE Holiday Gifts I DON’T Want!

14 Dec

Just wondering… do you know anyone who wants these gifts?



Perfect for a rockin’ slumber party in their parents’ basement.

They are so cute with those footsies and tails… why, they look like toddlers.

Oh, wait, they kind of are like toddlers.

Oh, well.  Arrested development is so definitely under-rated.

I just want to pinch their cheeks!

You can find these hooded, footed jammies in SkyMall.



For the man who has everything?  Voila!  Yes, another remote.SkyMallIt’s sheer magic.  Perfect for avid Harry Potter fans, too.




“Potty Train Your Cat Faster Than Most People Can Potty Train Their Kids


Dogs are too dumb for this!

Hmm, let me think, is the cat smarter than my kids?

This is a pretty glamorous product. I bet it’s the same system used in the movie “Meet The Parents.” And there’s a video, too.

You guessed it. It’s available at SkyMall.



4.  Giraffe

What do you get a two year old who already has a puppy or a kitten?

Yes, a giraffe!  “The perfect accessory in a nursery, this eye-catching giraffe is a great addition to any decor!”   Hope you have a ladder handy.  Wonder how much bamboo and rat guts “Spotty” eats for breakfast every day?

I didn’t have to tell you!  SkyMall has it!



Killing insects has never been so much fun!  Zap!

SkyMallTo hell with reincarnation.  Just pretend you’re swinging at a tennis ball. You can keep score with every fly you swat and spider your squash.

Zap! Zap! Zap! Zam!


I want to thank SkyMall for the bounty of creative and entertaining products! It’s a gift of that keeps giving.

Rhyme Time

1 Dec

Coming Soon!



Beauty is in the eye of the beholder

We all grace as we grow older,

Absence makes the heart grow fonder

Smile, smile and you’ll live longer,


Money can’t buy happiness

More isn’t more, it’s less.

Life is for the living

It’s better to be giving,


Keep your chin up high

You’ll feel better if you cry,

Love is grand and love is gay

Every dog will have his day,

And I was born just yesterday!

Barb Best


The master of light verse, Ogden Nash.

The Fly  
The Lord in His wisdom made the fly,
And then forgot to tell us why.  

- Ogden Nash

Judith Viorst is quite funny!



Dorothy Parker of course.


When I am old, and comforted,
And done with this desire,
With Memory to share my bed
And Peace to share my fire,

I’ll comb my hair in scalloped bands
Beneath my laundered cap,
And watch my cool and fragile hands
Lie light upon my lap.

And I will have a sprigged gown
With lace to kiss my throat;
I’ll draw my curtain to the town,
And hum a purring note.

And I’ll forget the way of tears,
And rock, and stir my tea.
But oh, I wish those blessed years
Were further than they be!

– Dorothy Parker

A favorite for Blog Her ’11 week!

Paris Hilton’s Foot Reflexology Chart (via Barb’s Blast)

3 Jun

Summer is party time!

Paris Hilton's Foot Reflexology Chart In foot reflexology, the parts of the foot correspond to body organs. This is an analysis of the current state of Paris Hilton’s feet: 1. Her toes reflect what's going on in her head. When a noun, “head” follows “air.” Also a verb. 2. The heel end of her foot relates to her Sexual Organs. Tilted, due to wearing 3-inch spike high heel shoes worn dancing, clubbing, starring in X-rated videos and running towards paparazzi. 3. The heel corresponds to … Read More

Flower Power

4 Apr

Spring is here.  Whoopee.  Hooray.

The grass is greening. The flowers are blooming. The birds are chirping. And the weeds are running amuck.

Many lovely people enjoy spending endless hours of leisure time in their gardens. However, you will not find me hunched over digging in the dirt.

10 Reasons I am totally unfit for yard work:

  • Pollen is in the… Ah Chooo0!  (Yes, it’s allergy time)
  • I break out in a rash when I look at goldenrod, trees, grass, leaves, bark, garden tools, and especially rubber gloves.
  • I do not have the calves of a potato farmer. (Thank God)
  • I have to wear a gas mask to walk the weed killer aisle in the hardware store. Too much of an assault on the olfactory senses. (Not to mention a genetic predisposition to cancer phobias)
  • I cannot tell a legume from a key lime jelly bean.
  • Manicures cost a lot of money. (Enough said)
  • You just can’t garden in high heels. (I know, I’ve tried)
  • Nobody – not your adorable 5 year old daughter nor your 85 year old granny looks fashionable in perky bright orange, chunky plastic gardening clogs.
  • Bees. Wasps. Yellow jackets. Black Widow spiders. Scorpions. Snakes. (DUH!)
  • I want to stop and smell the roses, not nurture them through fungus and middle school.



Oh well. Once a cosmopolitan big city dweller, always a big loser in the garden. Costco and Pro Flowers have great deals on fresh cut flowers – you can skip that whole planting, yard, growing part.


“If you have a garden, you have a purpose.” – Sure, to stop sneezing!

Beware April Fool!

31 Mar

Beware!  April Fool’s Day!


Like a broken cuckoo clock, even paranoids are right some of the time.

But April 1st is a day when people are out to get you.  (Heh. Heh. I may be one of them…)

Fool’s Day is observed throughout the Western world and has the potential of booming BIG on the internet.  Can you say “viral?”

Of course, trying to get people to believe ridiculous things is a favorite practice every day of the year with some.  As we know, politicians and lawyers thrive on spin, prevarication and bold-faced lying.  Unfortunately they lack the “fun” factor.


Check your Twitter feed and FB page for breaking news: “Bigfoot Captured” “Justin Bieber Pregnant” “American Idol Winner Busted” “Charlie Sheen Shuts Up” “Gaga Rocks AARP Convention” “Statue of Liberty Sold on eBay”

Set your radar high.  Be suspicious. Look over your shoulder. Or, better yet – beat them to it. Get creative. Come on, have some fun and “Punk” someone!




FYI Aston Kutcher:  you may punk me anytime.

They (whoever they are) say, “Only a fool plays it cool.” Especially on April 1st – every prankster’s favorite day!
