Running and Ranch

Never, ever, look out the window while licking a spoon covered in ranch dressing (or while engaging in any other guilty eating) because you might see this: And it will totally ruin that last lovely lick of Ranch. Trust me, I know, because today I was enjoying just such a stream of awful eating when I saw just such a woman rush past my window. I think I was at my worst when I was dipping half of an olive oil and sun-dried tomato potato chip in sour cream and covering the other half of it with easy cheese. I'll spare you any further details besides the fact that it ended with the Ranched spoon licking and a pile of dirty dishes. This all adds up to the perfect kind of day for accepting a lovely meme that Misty of Living In Spin Cycle tagged me for entitled:

4 things that should be removed from off the face of the earth:
1. Pores. i was born with large pores, which means large zits. i am 29 and i still have MAJOR breakouts (right now I have the Hawaiian Islands growing around my jaw line)
2. Steep hills. I have a phobia of steep hills that is slowly improving because I live in Seattle.
3. Computer problems. I become ridiculously angry when a computer does not do exactly what I want it to do. It is obvious that men invented them. If women had invented computers they would have been programmed to read minds.
4. Fat. I think I covered this one with the Ranch comment above, thank you very much.
5. (I know it is supposed to be 4 but i'm on a roll now) My lousy shift button. it never capitalizes my "i"s so i have to take a lot of time to go back and fix them all while holding my lousy shift button down ridiculously hard. By the way, i'm not fixing them in this post.

3 things people do that make you want to shake them violently:
1. Whine. Yes i am a hypocrite.
2. Lie. When people lie to me it feels like they think i'm the stupidest person on earth. I'm not!
3. Tease me after it is obvious that i'm not in the mood.

2 things you find yourself moaning about:
1. My weight/body shape. it makes me mad that i even care. i'm not in bad shape, but i definitely don't like what sits in my lap when i go potty.
2. What the kids did wrong through the day. Every night i tell myself i will NOT tell DSSH anything negative. i will only tell about the positive. But the bad always comes rushing out of mouth. It's as if i want a meddle of honor for having endured my own children every night, and my kids aren't even bad.

1 thing the above answers tell you about yourself.
1. i have life really good and should stop whining.

Thank you Misty. I found this meme to be quite theraputic. Misery loves company so I'm going to tag:
Shark Daddy
and Rachel

That's too funny, you made me smile. What did I have for dinner? A coconut dipped ice cream cone and because I was then cold some Borders hot chocolate. I should have gone running.

Coconut dipped ice cream cone? Mmmm, sounds good =).

I am 31 and still get zits, too. No one told me about this when I was a teenager.

I am still laughing at your comment about what hangs over when you go potty. What a great image. Wish I didn't have proof of that one myself. Then again, I would rather have that than no kids.

Thanks for the tag. :) And now I need a coconut dipped ice cream cone. Where can I get one of those?

When my husband's grandmother was in her late forties dying of cancer she was asked "What is one thing you wish for?" Always full of humor she replied, "I wished someone had told me I'd still have zits when I was forty. Why didn't anybody tell me that would happen?"

HEY NOW! How did you manage to get a picture of me looking so skinny up on your blog???


Enjoy your treats, each and ever one of them.

I do...... even if they do end up on my rear!!
