I don't know what the heck is going on in this studio after Eric and I are long gone, but it looks like the lil' monkeys got loose again.
I was so (geeky!) excited to get new markers for our studio's planner board.Â Those markers are under lock-n-key; it was a big privilege bestowed upon usÂ to receive such a generous offering.Â We've gone so long with old markers, I was ready to draw blood for ink!
...and now I know why the ink runs out so soon.
I'm thinking the gun-toting crazy lady (Jessie Roberts thinks the item in the left hand is a mailbox, btw!) might be me.Â I was told the one with busted brains on the floor is Eric (he wants an explanation why he looks so rotund!)
And I'm thinking this is Crockett's masterpiece...only he would throw Robbie under the bus by writing, "Robbie did this".
I'm not even upset about the voo-doo doll hair....the gnarly teeth....the angry uni-brow.Â At least I look skinny.Â
Brad and Angelina weren't available, but we were able to pulled in the second-stringers:Â your favorite FROGGY personalities...some with multiple personalities, so you actually are getting more bang for your buck!
At 7:00 Thursday morning, 12th caller will kick offÂ "Celebrity Password".Â You'll have 30 seconds to guess 3/5 FROGGY DJ's to win 2nd row seats for Brad Paisley's July 22nd concert.Â
Â Eric and I will give you the clues, you correctly guess the DJ.Â But, be careful...you're only allowed one incorrect guess; 2 strikes willÂ disqualify you!Â You are allowed to pass to take a shot at another DJ.
Since you took the time to hunt down my blog, here are the five possible winning celebrity passwords:
Now do your research on them so you'll be living large, two rows away from Brad Paisley!
Nicolas CageÂ apparently had a drunken night in New Orleans...
This is footage from a tattoo parlor in New Orleans. The shop owner at one point has to yell at the allegedly intoxicated actor to get out from behind the desk!
Cage was released from jail Saturday afternoon after being arrested on domestic violence charges in New Orleans. Reality TV star Dog the Bounty Hunter posted the $11,000 bond. Dog said, "I am a truly dedicated fan of Mr. Cage."
Nic was arrested after getting into a heated argument with his wife, Alice Kim, over the location of the apartment they were renting. Nic was said to be heavily intoxicated. Earlier that evening, he was spotted in a tattoo shop, where he stumbled around and told employees he didn't remember where he lived.
It doesn't take much to amuse a baby. How many times has your baby received a gift and simply wanted to play with the box or the wrapping paper? Take this laughing baby, for instance. All she needs is some paper and she's set for hours.Â
We revealed the 5th artist to join us on stage for Guitars & Stars 3!
Hope you've been keeping track of each artist this week, because you could win FRONT ROW TICKETS FOR THE SHOW!!Â Little hint:Â you'll be identifying the voices of all five artists!
Justin Moore likes casseroles
Randy Houser has a downloadable laugh
Andy Griggs has a cook book
Steve Holy has played with Randy
Heidi's theÂ Whiskey soaked voice!Â
The lineup this year for Froggy 101's Guitars & Stars is going to be so much fun!Â Between Heidi Newfield's excitement to share her music and stories, Randy Houser's priceless laugh (downloadable for a ringtone, btw!!), Justin Moore's love for acoustic playing, and Andy Griggs and Steve Holy busting each other, it's going to be fantastic.
The show isÂ acoustic and improptu, so you never know what to expect from the artists on stage as they interact with each other, tell stories, and sing their hearts out.Â Definitely a unique and enjoyable night for music lovers!
"A mess my father who only had sons never had to unclog."
He lives in a home withÂ 3 women (his wife and two teenage daughters) with beautiful looooong hair. (He also has a son, but I don't think he's the culprit here!)Â
I'm so used to this, it neverÂ occurred to me that a household (even one of just men) WOULDN'T have hairball clogged drains!Â It's practically a ritual in our house to Draino the tub every two months.Â I guess it's all my hair.Â How am I not bald!
My husbandÂ is boycotting aÂ particular big-box store after watching an expose movie on the company.Â As his wife, IÂ would like to support his cause.Â To an extent, I agree with him, and try to shop at locally-owned stores when I can.Â But, I'mÂ not rich, nor a "Real Housewife" of NEPA.Â I don't have the money nor the time to drive all over creation for household shopping.Â
Then again, I also don't have the patience to argue over where I buyÂ detergent.
Occasionally, I break down and shop at this forbidden consumer mecca. Maybe it's the fact that I know I'm doing something dishonest that makes me go wild in this store.Â I hit everyÂ aisle:Â groceries, cards, sports gear, automotive ... and pull things off the shelf like I'm entered in a shopping spree!Â Â The grand prizeÂ is secretly knowing EthanÂ is going to happily lick his fingers after a satisfying meal that I got at a great price.
Still, no matter how much I try to convince Ethan theÂ necessity of my "mega shopping," Â I'm always crushed by his look of disappointment.Â Â Instead of giving up, I got creative.
...cue the prop bags.Â (My single friendsÂ call it:Â Pathetic Marital Creativity.)
If I want to buy a sports bra and a gallon of milk from the same store because it will save me time AND money, so be it. I have found a way to make us both happy.Â Â Â I transfer myÂ mega meccaÂ goodness into different grocery bags.Â Is it cheating?Â Maybe.Â Is it avoiding an unnecessary argument?Â Absolutely.
I love it that my mom sent me this tutorial video on how to put out a kitchen fire! I clearly inherited my mom's dangerous cooking genes!!
Watch it... I was surprised to learn from friends that DO cook, that they didn't know the safe way to put out a kitchen fire:
best tip: DON'T THROW WATER ON A GREASE FIRE (stove).
(...and no, that's not my mom in the video.)
This is a FREE class, thanks to instructors Chuck Litchkowski of Northeastern Ju-Jitsu, and all the instructors who are volunteering their time for our safety.Â Â

Take 81 to exit 170B (Cross Valley) Take Exit 4 (Forty-Fort/Kingston) Stay in Right Lane At Stop Sign Make Left Go One Mile to Wyoming Ave. Make Right Onto Wyoming and Go 3 LightsÂ make LEFT onto OwenÂ St. Go 7/10 of a Mile to OwenÂ & Main St. Northeastern is on the Left.
I am very excited to join you in a course that will truly make a difference in your life.Â Every woman should know how to defend herself â from how to escape a dangerous attacker, to simply getting rid of that creep who corners you at the bar!Â We'll learn all these easy techniques together.
What one neighbor finds art, others find trash.Â A Jersey family filed a complaint about the naked snow sculpture on their neighbor's lawn.Â The neighbor says it was art; a replica of the Venus de Milo.Â
You're no sculpture artist...ya just put boobs on a snow blob!
Â Nonetheless, theÂ creative neighborÂ was forced to cover the snow "art".Â He got the last word by putting a bikini on it!
Â What's on your neighbor's lawn you'd like to hide?
Carrie posing with the Grammy 3D crew:Â Celine Dion, Smokey Robinson, Jennifer Hudson and Usher to rehearse the 3-D tribute to Michael Jackson.
I was on the fence all day to schlep to Target to grab my free glasses for the 3D Grammy tribute.Â I think "the ways of NEPA" set in --especially on a cold day! -- and I had a REALLY hard time justifying driving (as those born & raised here say!), "ALLLLLLLL the way the Wilkes-Barre!!"Â Â Yup.Â I knew this day would eventually come. Â But congratulations to me for becoming an official local!Â
Other than missing the 3D tribute (it was nothing more than a long blobby visual for me :-(Â ...), I thought the performances were AMAZING!!Â
Favorite of the night: PINK.Â Hands down.Â Â Her trapeze, Cirque de Soleil infusedÂ performance WHILE singing with a hand-held mic had my jaw on the floor.Â Â Plus, I never thought a Pink song could bring a tear to my eye.Â Beautiful.Â

An L.A. boutique took creative license for their creation of a "fashion" nativity scene, which is not sitting well with many on-lookers.
The Virgin Mary is in a mini skirt...where's the fashion police for this crime of tackiness?!
Â I understand the store's sense of creativity and freedom of expression, but maybe I wouldn't be so taken aback if it wasn't for the halos. Christmas is commercialized enough with "Santa Sales".Â Shouldn't the nativity scene remainÂ the one untainted religious icon?Â (And this, coming from a Jewish gal!)
Sure, you can call anything "art", but the Three Wise (wo-)Men are carrying shopping bags!Â While it's clever forÂ bringing their gold, and frankincense, and myrrh, maybeÂ they would be wise to bring Mary some undergarments :-b
Â I'm not offended; it just doesn't make me think about the sincerityÂ of a religious icon. All I can think about, now, is how "breezy" Mary must feel!
You know how you think you're a good dancer until you actually seeÂ footage of yourself in the act?Â (I AM good...I saw the wedding video!)Â Â Well, I hope that doesn't apply for kissing.Â There's gotta be a learning curve for a Jewish gal sitting onÂ Santa's lap, right?!!
Â I love Doc's expression..he's either grossed out, or jealous!!
Doc and I were supposed to kiss Santa's cheeks, but clearly, holding the pose was impossible!Â I didn't want to make Santa uncomfortable (what would he say to Mrs. Claus!), so I kinda fake-kissed him to hold the pose. .. I'm just not good at faking it :-)
Thankfully, I'm not the only disturbed (and humored!) person that noticed the strategic placement of the eyes for the "Disney on Ice - Finding Nemo" costumes.Â AND SO BIG!Â Don't be surprised if your husband suddenly wants to see this children's show...and you don't have any kids!Â Hey, in his defense, he is looking at their eyes!
I saw a whole new side to Gretchen Wilson!Â She was warm and inviting, opening her 400 ACRE FARM to us to get to know her and her new Redneck Records label better.
Â In true Redneck Woman style, Gretchen (along with her lovingly-crazy Uncle Vern!) led the pack of about 20 ATVs through the backwoods of her landâ¦in the dark!Â YEEEEHAAAAAW!! Â Â Ladies, if youâve never ridden an ATV, I urge you to try at least once in your life â it will REV YOUR ENGINES!!Â I screamed sounds I never thought I could make on that thing!Â By the way, Gretchen herself buckled me in! Â She initially insisted I wouldnât need it, but one look at Jake behind the wheel, she reconsidered!
Â Best candid moment of the night (aside from the words coming out of my mouth on the ATV!!):Â Gretchen showing a smoke detector whoâs boss!Â
She was smoking in the kitchen, just below a smoke detector.Â With the cigarette in one hand, she RIPPED the face of that screeching detector off with the other!Â Donât mess with Gretchen!
