This and That Thursday by Mental Pause Mama

When the server says they are HOT tamales...believe her. Oh, and I love guacamole and avocados. I could eat them daily.

Should I worry that my oldest girl-child wants to be a cat? A cat with a master's degree? Naw, she is vastly intelligent and beautiful to boot. Who in the hell cares if she wants to be feline. I surely don't. Do you baby girl. Do you.

President Barack Obama has Jay-Z on his ipod? I knew there was a reason I liked that man. He's so dope, yo. I wonder if he gives certain people dap, but shakes some people's hands. Does the Presidential Protocol Office have regulations regarding the "giving of dap" and when one should do it and such. I wonder if the office staff had to be briefed on more urban greetings and terminology. These are the political problems I am concerned with.

I have that little quip from the upcoming release of the movie, "Dinner for Schmucks" stuck in my head..."Mama Mia Poppa Pia, Baby got the diarrhea." is driving me crazy.

I alternate that awfulness with the Honda Element Commercial...the one with the rodents dressed all "G"..."You can go with this, or you can go with that, you can choose this, or you can choose that...dip dop dippity." See what I mean? Driving me crazy.

I really think more should be done for the human population that is dealing with Bi-polar Disorder and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. It seems to be a life that both the sufferer and their family members deal with in solitary silence. I have seen it affect so many and yet no one ever really talks about it. Why is that? Why is the stigma of mental illness so difficult for one to openly discuss?

I can honestly say my family is full of craziness and I am so proud at our overachieving ways!!! Go us!

My Boogaloo is going to be Sweet Sixteen this September. I have come up with a Diva Fabulous idea for her. I will share it with you after her birthday because she reads this blog regularly and I do not want her to know what I am planning, but it's, it's not a car, so let me just burst that bubble right now, okay.

I watched the final episode of Toddlers and Tiara's last night. I have nothing against parents who do this sort of thing, but (a) it kind of creeped me out a bit, (b) those children need some serious discipline, and (c) so do their parents.

It was reported that personnel data from more than 100 million Facebook users was recently published in a down loadable file...will this stop me from using this social platform or from playing my now addicted Farmville? Nope, probably not.

I have some new favorite quotes...I love quotes almost as much as pie...not quite as much, but almost.

"You're mad. Bonkers. Off you head. But I'll tell you a secret~All the best people are." ~Alice in Wonderland~ 2010

"There's just some people in this world who you can just love and love and love no matter what." ~John Green, An Abundance of Katherines

"don't let your past steal your present"

"Expecting the world to treat you fairly because you are a good person is a little like expecting the bull not to attack you because you are a vegetarian." ~Dennis Wholey

"Dip Dop Dippity"-Honda Hamster Rapper

Marlene - it's a Kia Soul commercial with the hamsters. Or should I say hamsta's. But it is a funny, pee your pants commercial.

Unknown said...

Hey Ellen!!! Missed you! This commercial is used for both the Kia and the Honda brands. I guess they are shring in such economically bleak times. Thanks for adding this though. I love too credit a source whenevr could have been Ford and it would still drive me crazy. Isn't it funny though?

My daughter hates those Kia commercials with the big rats. I can't tear my eyes away when the commercial is on..I am weird like that!

Thanks for your comment today, people have been pissing me off all day! :)
