Poety for a rainy day

there are times when I wish we could all get together for a cup of joe, tapioca pudding and some cake. I like cake especially with butter cream frosting corner piece only but if you all were here I'd give you the corner piece. I would cause that's how I feel today. I have no cake, no tapioca pudding..but I've had wayyyy too much coffee.

A birthday feast for Yaye

If only there were olives....but there can be, just for you.

Yaye knows why I picked this song

I will never share our take on this...not for public consumption. Happy Birthday Yaye!!

Happy Birthday Yaye!

Wow...Imagine this we've gone from before 40 to more than 40 on this little blog. So on that note here is a little Birthday video just for you! To remind you that you are not the only one who's done embarrassing things in your youth.

Potatoes and the Island of Alaska by Tallulah

First off a big happy birthday to Yaye - a day late but my next post will be about that.

The Thanksgiving holiday was illuminated by the insanity and incredible lack of geography knowledge of two family members.

Insanity: By now anyone who has read this blog (all three people including me) know that my mother suffers from Alzheimers. However since she has moved near me, I am able to handle this little issue and find it quite amusing sometimes. Case in point: I had to deliver her beloved sugar wafer cookies and other sundry items yesterday. While unpacking her groceries and watching one of my favorite episodes of I Love Lucy - Lucy & Winemaking, my mother informed me she needed a new potato. The conversation went like this:

Mom: Honey, I need a new potato

Tallu: Mom, you need a new potato? What do you mean you need a new potato?

Mom: A NEW potato! (She says in a disgusted manner)

Tallu: Potato?

Mom: Yes, you know a new potato where I can change this thingy and make it show me the specials that I can't get with this thing.

Tallu: Mom you don't need a new potato to do that.

Mom: I most certainly do, why won't you get me a new potato.

Tallu: I would get you a new potato but you can't cook a potato in your room. What you need....

Mom: I NEED A POTATO! (she interrupts now slamming her hand down on the arm rest of her wheelchair)

Tallu: What I'm trying to tell you is that a potato will not change the channels on your TV and it will not show you any specials.

Mom: Oh? A potato won't do that?

Tallu: No, but your remote control right here will do that. See? (I switch the channel from I Love Lucy to some tel-evangalist)

Mom: How did you do that? I thought maybe a potato would help.

For the millionth time I show my mom how to work the remote and she was satisfied.

Lack of Knowledge
Around the Thanksgiving table when the election came up and everyone was laughing about Sarah Palin, my darling Yayo pipes up: Yeah, she thought that she had foreign policy experience when everyone knows Alaska is an island. The entire table goes silent, all eyes cast upon Yayo then in one simultaneous gasp, laughter erupted.

Tallu: Yayo, you can't be serious.

Yayo: Yes, why? When you look at a map of the United States there is Alaska at the bottom in a box in the middle of the ocean.

Tallu: Oh my god.

Someone gets a map and shows Yayo just where Alaska is and I explain to him why Alaska is in a box in ocean.

Yayo: Ohhhhhh, no wonder everyone was laughing at me on the bus.

And there you have it, my little family - insane and geographically challenged. By the way it was wonderful to have a holiday dinner conversation that did not talk about doom and gloom of our country but of fresh ideas and excitement for the next chapter beginning 1/20/09.

Fuck YES!!!! WE WON!!!!

Revisiting the 04 election

During the last election night, I had been in WV for 2.5 months, and I wanted to send a pic to friends and family who voted sort of like I did, this first one, was what I wanted to send.

Sadly this is what they received:

7.5 years ago Talu bought a mug, will it retire?

He is not my president (referring to Bush)

So my question is: Will Tallulah be able to retire this mug for the next 4 years????

I always brought this out when having coffee klatches with those who voted for him...It really needs a rest. Can it be packed up?

I hope so.

What will Election Night bring to our home?

Shall it be Champagne or Vodka with Sleeping pills?

Voting machine in WV switched votes on me, which after 3 tries I corrected. However, I voted for different parties in the local election and the machine said that I voted a straight ticket. HOWEVER it did not say whether it was a straight dem ticket or repug ticket. I'm not sure my vote counted. And that is the honest truth.

Tallulah Kazu goes over edge to Canada! Or was it just Candida in the Brain?

I think that I have a yeasty spore that's spreading in my brain it's called medulla Imagonna-getthruelection-oreah. The above youtube tickled me so deeply that I actually used the Google translator to send the Masked Avengers a little thank you note. That's scary, I'm sure the french translation of what I wrote read like I was three years old.

And how are you this fine evening?
