Are you a sensitive chef?

Wednesday's Virtual Mail comes from Dan:

I love to cook for my girlfriend, and I make her dinner about three or four times a week.  

But whenever I do, she does something that absolutely drives me nuts:  She salts it before she even tastes it.

And it's not just my food.  She salts everything without trying it first:  Popcorn at the movies . . . meals at restaurants . . . even her oatmeal.

 Doesn't she realize how RUDE that is? Why do people put salt on their food before they even taste it?

I DO NOT look like that....

Well, now they've done it.


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.  Those markers are under lock-n-key; it was a big privilege bestowed upon us to receive such a generous offering.  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.  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.  At least I look skinny. 


But I am a lil' peeved about WASTING MARKERS!!!!

Miranda SHELTON!

Mirand caught a big mouth.....and we're not just talkin' about Blake! 

MIRANDA LAMBERT and BLAKE SHELTON strapped on the hip waders and went angling for their honeymoon!



 

--Miranda is now officially Miranda Shelton.  That's what her driver's license says.

  Just a couple days after the wedding, she tweeted, "Mrs. Shelton here!  Winning!"

No Hyphen.  The hyphenated last name is going out of style for newly married women. 

Ladies, did you start out with the hyphenated last name when you first got married, and then decide to drop it?  Which did you switch to, your original last name or your partner's?

Win 2nd Row Brad Paisley tix with "Celebrity" Password

Brad and Angelina weren't available, but we were able to pulled in the second-stringers:  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 off  "Celebrity Password".  You'll have 30 seconds to guess 3/5 FROGGY DJ's to win 2nd row seats for Brad Paisley's July 22nd concert. 

 Eric and I will give you the clues, you correctly guess the DJ.  But, be careful...you're only allowed one incorrect guess; 2 strikes will disqualify you!  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:

Eric
Selena
Jessie Roberts
Robbie Owens
Crockett

Now do your research on them so you'll be living large, two rows away from Brad Paisley!

Dog the Bounty Hunter Bails Out Nic Cage

Nicolas Cage  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.

St Paddy Parade in Pictures

St Paddy's Parade with the Wake Up Call!

Skipping in our kilts!

I don't care how old you are, try it!  You'll feel like a kid! 

Advanced skippers attempt in a kilt...

Look at how nice the crew is all dressed up WITH a place to go

...even if we weren't scheduled to move for several hours.

....and unfortunately, this is what happens when you have too much time on your hands waiting to move in the parade.  Dancing Foul!

But once we got moving, the crowd was diggin' Crockett's legs!

Hope you had a blast at the parade, too!  Thanks to everyone that showed their "Kiss Me I'm Froggy" signs -- enjoy your shirts!!

Babies don't need expensive toys...

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. 

And I can't stop laughing at her laugh...

Ewwwwww!

  My cousin shared this pic and post:

"A mess my father who only had sons never had to unclog."

He lives in a home with 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!) 

I'm so used to this, it never occurred to me that a household (even one of just men) WOULDN'T have hairball clogged drains!  It's practically a ritual in our house to Draino the tub every two months.  I guess it's all my hair.  How am I not bald!

Sneaky ways to avoid an argument

I'm not proud of this.  I have fake grocery bags.

My husband is boycotting a particular big-box store after watching an expose movie on the company.  As his wife, I would like to support his cause.  To an extent, I agree with him, and try to shop at locally-owned stores when I can.  But, I'm not rich, nor a "Real Housewife" of NEPA.  I don't have the money nor the time to drive all over creation for household shopping. 

Then again, I also don't have the patience to argue over where I buy 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.  I hit every aisle:  groceries, cards, sports gear, automotive ... and pull things off the shelf like I'm entered in a shopping spree!   The grand prize is secretly knowing Ethan 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 the necessity of my "mega shopping,"  I'm always crushed by his look of disappointment.   Instead of giving up, I got creative.

...cue the prop bags.  (My single friends call it:  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.   I transfer my mega mecca goodness into different grocery bags.  Is it cheating?  Maybe.  Is it avoiding an unnecessary argument?  Absolutely.

Would you eat this?

 Friendly's new entree: The Grilled Cheese Burger Melt

It's a hamburger where both the top and bottom buns have been replaced by full GRILLED CHEESE SANDWICHES.

 --This burger has 1,500 calories, 97 grams of total fat and 101 grams of carbs.  On the bright side, it has 54 grams of protein.

 Friendly's regular hamburger has 1,190 calories, 68 grams of fat and 103 grams of carbs.

--So replacing the bun at Friendly's with two grilled cheese sandwiches "only" adds about 300 calories and 29 grams of total fat . . . and actually SAVES you two grams of carbs.

 ...take off two slices of that bread, and maaaaybe (followed by crazy cardio workout) :-)

Only YOU can prevent kitchen fires!

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.)

What if THIS was on your neighbor's lawn?

Put some clothes on that snowman!



 

What one neighbor finds art, others find trash.  A Jersey family filed a complaint about the naked snow sculpture on their neighbor's lawn.  The neighbor says it was art; a replica of the Venus de Milo. 

You're no sculpture artist...ya just put boobs on a snow blob!

 Nonetheless, the creative neighbor was forced to cover the snow "art".  He got the last word by putting a bikini on it!

 What's on your neighbor's lawn you'd like to hide?

Wilkes-Barre wasn't close enough for 3D action

3D CarrieCarrie posing with the Grammy 3D crew:  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.  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!!"  Yup.  I knew this day would eventually come.  But congratulations to me for becoming an official local! 

Other than missing the 3D tribute (it was nothing more than a long blobby visual for me :-(  ...), I thought the performances were AMAZING!! 

Favorite of the night: PINK.  Hands down.   Her trapeze, Cirque de Soleil infused performance WHILE singing with a hand-held mic had my jaw on the floor.    Plus, I never thought a Pink song could bring a tear to my eye.  Beautiful.

Fashion Nativity Scene DON'T?!!



Fashion Nativity Scene DON'T?!
Fashion Nativity Scene DON'T?!
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?!

 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".  Shouldn't the nativity scene remain the one untainted religious icon?  (And this, coming from a Jewish gal!)


Sure, you can call anything "art", but the Three Wise (wo-)Men are carrying shopping bags!  While it's clever for bringing their gold, and frankincense, and myrrh, maybe they would be wise to bring Mary some undergarments :-b



 

 I'm not offended; it just doesn't make me think about the sincerity of a religious icon. All I can think about, now, is how "breezy" Mary must feel!

Is She SNIFFING Santa?!

You smell good, Santa!

You know how you think you're a good dancer until you actually see footage of yourself in the act?  (I AM good...I saw the wedding video!)   Well, I hope that doesn't apply for kissing.  There's gotta be a learning curve for a Jewish gal sitting on Santa's lap, right?!!

 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!  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 :-)

okay, on the count of three...

Hey! This is a Kid's Show!

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.  AND SO BIG!  Don't be surprised if your husband suddenly wants to see this children's show...and you don't have any kids!  Hey, in his defense, he is looking at their eyes!

The Inviting Side of Gretchen Wilson

Gretchen toasting radio

I saw a whole new side to Gretchen Wilson!  She was warm and inviting, opening her 400 ACRE FARM to us to get to know her and her new Redneck Records label better.

  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 land…in the dark!  YEEEEHAAAAAW!!   Ladies, if you’ve never ridden an ATV, I urge you to try at least once in your life – it will REV YOUR ENGINES!!  I screamed sounds I never thought I could make on that thing!  By the way, Gretchen herself buckled me in!  She initially insisted I wouldn’t need it, but one look at Jake behind the wheel, she reconsidered!

 

Wild ATV Ride on Gretchen Wilson's Farm

 Best candid moment of the night (aside from the words coming out of my mouth on the ATV!!):  Gretchen showing a smoke detector who’s boss! 
She was smoking in the kitchen, just below a smoke detector.  With the cigarette in one hand, she RIPPED the face of that screeching detector off with the other!  Don’t mess with Gretchen!

Take THAT, smoke detector!
