What is wrong with this picture? (UPDATED)

I guess it is kinda hard to see, but on the sample card I have at home, it is more noticeable.

On the motorcycle facing away from you, hanging from the rear fender, is what looks like those fake testicles that "manly-men" tend to hang off the back of their vehicles.

I sent a message to customer service and the message ended up getting sent to the director of customer service. She told me that the "balls" were supposed to be a guardian bell, but she totally agreed with me that it didn't look too bell-like and so they are removing the bell/balls from the picture and are reprinting the cards.

What power I wield!


These are the Christmas cards I was intent on purchasing this year. But I didn't order. Can you tell why I changed my mind? You may need to put on your prude pants.

More of a Granny Smith Apple Green

I have had no internet capabilities for the past four days. I had withdrawals.

We went to Iowa and closed on our house. I finally got to see it in person and guess what! Two good surprises. One, there is a breakfast bar in the kitchen and two, this little gem...

Notice the green! Not gross, avacado green, but a glorious, Granny Smith green! The wallpaper has got to go. I was teasing the Commander about painting the walls bright yellow and having a limon bathroom.

We also managed to visit the relatives in Minneapolis and went to the MN Zoo. I'll put some of those photos up on my Flickr account.

Lookin' forward to it

Thirteen Things I look forward to in my new town

1. Not working! (SAHM!)
2. Old Dutch! (Caramel Corn!)
3. Two ovens! (Sweet!)

Here's some Total Momsense

Bug Spray

Me + Off = Yes

The Commander + Bullfrog = Not so much.

Bullfrog's sunscreen abilities were just fine, but the repellent didn't repel. The Commander applied at least three layers of the stuff and he still had mosquitoes getting him.

In other news...

The Boy started piano lessons. Now we need a nice electronic keyboard for him to practice on. These things are danged expensive. I've tried e-bay and craig's list, but I haven't found anything I like. I need to hit the garage sales I guess. Suggestions?

Quick with the retort

I have a t-shirt with an old school type photo of a guy bowling and the words "Spare Me" on it.

I was wearing it last night when I stopped by the c-store to get some milk and the boy an Icee.

This is the conversation I had with the clerk (to the best of my recollection.)

Clerk - Your shirt bowls me over.
Me - Does it strike your fancy?
Clerk - Oooo. I'm pinned behind the counter.
Me - (Speaking to the boy) It's right up his alley.
Clerk - I cry foul!
Clerk and Me - Ha ha ha ha ha!
People in line behind me - WTF?
Me - Can I get a bag?
Clerk - Before you split?

Good times.
