What in TAR-nation?

Went to the beach today.  Absolutely beautiful.  Emma has become such a great swimmer, she’s like a fish. I’m hoping that turns into Olympic gold someday or a college scholarship.  

While the kids were swimming we saw dolphins swimming close to where we were.  So, I got up to tell Emma and to see the dolphins better.  As I approached the waves I felt something squish between my toes.


I can never leave well enough alone, so I reached down to pull it off.  Bad idea.  Just got tar on my hands.  So, the group I was with gave me several suggestions for removing the tar.  Courtney suggested mayonnaise, but the other suggestions were caustic, alcohol, acetone, turpentine.  Upon our return home I weighed my options and thought, I’m going to try the mayo first.  My poor dry feet cringed at the other options, but if the mayo didn’t work that’s what I’d do.  

BUT the mayo worked!  I couldn’t believe it.  So thank you very much Courtney.  You are a foot (and hand) saver.  A miracle!



Off to New Joysy!  Yippie.

Fun with Cash

Friday Emma and I joined the Cash Clan at Disneyland.  So much fun.  David and I had dinner plans that night so I left and Emma stayed with the clan.  She went home with her friends and had her third sleep-over.  Is it strange that it’s only been three?  And I missed her, ALOT!  Our family has a circle of dependence.  We’re all so needy for each other.  Even Portia.  Can anyone suggest a good therapist?

She was right


A while back Mary wrote a post about mascara. In particular Cover Girl’s LashBlast. Well, she was right. I have had the worst luck with mascara in the past. I have tried the gamut from super expensive to drug store cheap. My biggest complaint is how obvious it looked and it wasn’t pretty. Well I have found the answer; no clumpy, spider legs, nasty with this. I can honestly say I tried it with much skepticism. Nothing else worked why would this? When the result was full, dark lashes I became a believer. The icing: it’s CoverGirl. I can buy it when I’m at Target and it won’t break the bank. Thanks Mary!!! CoverGirl should send you royalties.



Due to technical difficulties and travel, a be-lated Merry Christmas to all.

I am so proud of our Christmas card this year I had to share it. For more info on the talent behind this master piece go here.

Also, I must thank DZ, AZ’s husband for taking the picture of our family.

Last weekend I was able to visit my friend Mary. Her identical twins are turning one this month! She also has another little girl who just recently turned 3. Mary is superwoman and then some. She is also one of my longtime friends that I couldn’t live without. You are too far away Mary.

(ps I think I have the right name with the right twin. Mary?)

From Encyclopedia Dramatica

To Rickroll is to intentionally misdirect one to a video from 80s pop singer Rick Astley. This tactic gets its name in part from the duckroll through the similar intent of a pissing off everyone by deception. Not to be confused with a Barrel roll

No one is safe from the Rickroll, not even in your schools


Rickrolling began on 4chan’s /v/ on the day of Grand Theft Auto 4’s official website premier. However, due to heavy traffic on the website, it was impossible to witness the trailer for quite some time, and with this, anonymous took it upon himself to link everyone to a supposedly leaked trailer hosted on Youtube:

Rickrolling has become really popular outside of 4chan, now there are radio hosts rickrolling callers on ebaumsw0rld.
When asked on other places on the interweb, 4chan will most likely not be your answer. Many website communities will try to take ownership of the Rickroll, such as GameFAQs claiming that the Rickroll started on the Halo 3 board. WoWfags also lay claim to the rickroll, and have beaten it to old meme death on their forums twice as fast as 4chan ever could have.
