This and That Thursday by Mental Pause Mama

Have you seen this Geico commercial? It is one of my current favorites and I get the giggles every time it comes on. I love it when innovative and creative advertisement staff come up with something so simple, yet outstanding.

Wee, wee, wee, wee, all the way home! Ha...I love it.

Of course there is a commercial that is starting to rake on my nerves and that would be the contact lens know the one..."Look! Look with your special eyes." "My Brand!!" It makes me want to find a high gage shot gun and shoot the television. Seriously, take that off the air.

I forgot this morning that I was out of coffee, so I am pretending my hot tea is coffee.

It's not working. I want coffee. I have a serious "thing" for coffee.

I had fried okra yesterday. I don't have a "thing" for fried okra. In fact, fried food isn't so appealing any more to me. I mean, I get the occasional craving, but then I regret it because I feel so gross afterward. I will never return to the monstrosity I once was. I am so much happier now than I ever was in years past.

I am making Pasta Putanesca this evening for my love and friends. It's always a great time when we get together with our little group. Each of the ladies makes a dish and the guys...well, they are guys.

I love that Trisha Yearwood song, "How Do I Live". I have wonderful memories of Boo Boo Girl (aka Sarahboo) at the age of 5, standing on the coffee table in the living room belting this song out and hitting every note perfectly. She has such an amazing voice.

This is my favorite time of year, weather speaking. I am tracking all those goodies coming off the coast of Africa. My personal opinion on Hurricane Danielle? If I were in the Upper NE United States, I would be watching and preparing if I were you. Right behind her is, "My Name is Earl"...and anyone from Southern Georgia to Virginia should be aware this storm.

I have a heart filled with respect for Michael Douglas and the way he is dealing with the incarceration of his son, Cameron. I pray for this family and for all those dealing with similar circumstances. Addiction is a disease that affects everyone.

This is Home Girl and I wanna go Wee, Wee, Wee, Wee, all the way home.

I laughed when I saw that stupid wee wee commercial, too. It's pretty much the only geico commercial I like.

Off to find that commercial. Haven't seen it yet.
