Whiskey. Tango. Foxtrot: crazy hijacker edition





dear psychotic hijacker:


you really DID hack into my blog. and i let it go, thinking it was my brother. (is that you, ryan?)

but then i realized he would never, EVER use the word
THERE for THEIR , as in "PUT UP WITH LOSING THERE WIVES AND GIRLFRIENDS".

that being said,, i have to stand firm and adopt the same policy as the united states of america: i DO NOT NEGOTIATE WITH TERRORISTS.



so........as to your list of so-called demands:


1. see my policy above.


2. an apology will never come from my lips until you say sorry for yours bad grammur. and, even then, it's a little iffy....


3. i was already planning on adding two-three spiritual posts per week since i found the love of jesus christ through stephen baldwin's ALL THAT KNOW HIM MOVEMENT.





...and gave him our entire life savings as well as russ's 401K and the remainder of my parent's retirement fund and my children's college education savings. (like they are gonna go anyway--duh!)


4. as a special treat, i've created a collage of every single vegas trip recorded on wtym since it's humble beginning.

please to enjoy:





now, step OFF.


i end now with a warning. and i couldn't have said it any better than the immortal principal richard vernon:





"The next time I have to come in here I'm crackin' skulls!!"

thankful thursday





things i am thankful for this week:



**abbey's fantastic performance at her dance recital this week--

i qualified for MOTHER OF THE YEAR by forgetting my camera. so this shaky image from my phone is all i got. (but when you are as cute as this, you can pull it off.):




**speaking of abbey--i get such a kick out of her funny little personality.

i found these post-it notes next to her bed the other week--they were her 'to do' list. and i'm thinking that ALL of our 'to do' lists should read this way:






**the vampire diaries.

i'm a late arrival to this party, but let me tell you: GOOD STUFF.

i've discussed many a time lately that i wouldn't hate it if i were in the middle of a salvatore brothers sandwich:




**this radical soundbite to all things debbie downer:


the price is right's "YOU FAIL"--


(me thinks bob barker should lay off the tanning bed.)






(thanks, kami~)

hb jody!


hb to my beautiful joellen wollumssssesss....

i'm pretty sure you changed abed's life FOREVER.

he's a better man for having met you.



i love you--hb to you and your kidney stones!!

the end of an era....




mia graduated from preschool last week.

my baby--our little caboose. how could this possibly be?


unfortunately, time and this little lady waits for no one. so i gave in and allowed her to actually age. (it was a little rough.)

she dressed up in all her finery for the momentous occasion:



when we got there for the ceremony, she was a bit miffed that the graduation cap covered her hair. she had endured the curling process and wanted the result to be admired by all:


which resulted in numerous attempts at sabotage:


her beloved teacher, miss brandi, gave mia the "best friend" and "trendy diva" award.

we felt like it was fitting.



mia's friend, pierce, was also doing the pomp & circumstance march--

he said he would also be available this summer to "babysit" mia if needed. (see THIS post)



(i also wanted to show the letter that arrived in the mail for our family this past week from pierce--it was a 'thank you' note for the cinco de mayo party. AND it included one dollar. to help defray costs...... it was an instant hit.)




i loved the creative graduation hat treat that one of the (overachieving!) mothers made for the children--it's made with a reese's miniature peanut butter cup, ghiradelli square, piece of licorice rope and mini m&m:


help stevie b




hey--i want you to forget about every worthy charity that you've ever donated or even CONSIDERED donating to.

i've got a new worthy cause that will surely pull at your heartstrings.....and cause you to open your wallets:

did you know that stephen baldwin of the famous 'baldwin brothers' hollywood clan (think poor man's alec baldwin) became a born again christian in 2002? i kid you not~

apparently stevie became very vocal about his new-found religion, and decided to preach the gospel. which THEN, apparently, caused him the loss of many jobs. which THEN, allegedly, resulted in a highly publicized bankruptcy. (i know! i can hardly believe it, either.)

so......join with me, will you, in supporting the restoration of stephen baldwin~


this privately funded & managed website's vision is to see Sir Steven publicly restored. in front of millions. which will THEN allow him to reach even more people with the gospel and God will get all of the glory......

so, if the people of God come together and each give a small “token gift” we can then see a massive restoration of a christian public figure and all the glory will go to God.


genius.


they even have a pay pal account set up for your convenience.



i just donated $1,000.00.

that's how much i want to see stephen baldwin restored.


can you find it in your heart to do the same?


(especially after you see his photo that will be in next month's issue of cosmopolitan uk magazine:)




lessons learned from confession booth:SEIS



confession booth: SIETE was a little slow out of the gate. but once it warmed up, it WARMED. UP.


i sifted through the 606 comments and put together a short list of lessons learned from confession booth SIETE--


1. somebody's cat is reading their diary.

2. you can buy one helluva resume/college transcripts package on the internet. & then land a big $$ job.

3. mindi's husband is hot. AND he smells nice. (but i already knew this!)

4. note to self: do not use the words "your hawt", "I'd do you", "let's make out", hubs or dh on this blog....or the word lurve.

5. i have quite a bright future as a catholic priest.

6. from now on, i shall refer to all redheads as "GINGERBREAD".

7. peeing in the shower IS good for you:

"No, seriously, peeing in the shower is really good. It ... it fights, um, um, athlete's foot. I'm serious, no, urine is like, is like ... is like an antiseptic. It's all got to do with the enzymes in your body." ~Madonna

8. religion & politics: still a hotbed of controversy.

9. peeples poor eenglish on facebook and blogging dreyeves peepl knuts! it makes them two crazie. they would lurv too comment and correct sum peeples status updaytes, butt them don't.

10. there is a woman named shirley who traps unsuspecting people in a crowded elevator whilst displaying socially unacceptable behavior. & she is NOT related to a ghana gobbledong in the movie industry.

11. always have your grandma take public transportation if possible.

12. kissing cousins: there's more of us than you think.....

13. the CB can restore your self esteem one post at a time.



i thought it important to post one of the comments from the booth--i think it could be helpful to many:

Dear Mindi

I thought you might like to know that I got inspired by the confession booth and one of the comments on there.

Someone mentioned that there should be an anonymous sex blog that would answer questions of a more delicate nature.
Why not?

I am not super techno savvy but after some help from a few people that did the layout and header, the blog has been started and it is located HERE

We are not quite open for business but we are looking for people that might be interested in joining our advice panel. So please head over and send us an email.

You will remain anonymous as a contributor. Nobody (except for the moderator) will ever know who you are. We are looking for men and women. Single and married. Straight and not-so-straight. Experienced and inexperienced.


The format will run a little like this: Someone will submit their question to the anonymous moderator and that moderator will email the questions out to the panel members. They will send their responses back and then all responses will be compiled to answer the question and everything will be posted. So the question will be the post title and the post itself will be the compiled answers.


Anonymous. Informative. Entertaining.


Thanks for the idea!

Mindi, the confession booth really might be changing lives!



well...............who woulda thunk it? confession IS good for the soul!


next confessional? september 2010....

HAMM sandwich.



seeing these pictures of john hamm filming season 4 of mad men had me a little light headed.....


july: hurry up and get here.

closed.


cue tears NOW.


**be sure to stop back by on monday to get confession booth wrap up--and the link to a great new blog.....

thankful thursday





lots of things to be thankful for this week:



**these awesome pills coasters sent to me by my beloved vanessa on a day when i needed love. she must have sensed a disturbance in the force.....and i heart her for it.





**the wonderful mother's day information sheet my abbey filled out about me. ( 115 lbs? smart cookie!)





**the fact that i was able to procure keane tickets to their concert in las vegas without any hassle or headache. AND they were cheap. AND i get to go with my main man & friends.


they complete me.

(you need to get on board with their new album. for real.)





**the freaking STELLAR photo i took after begging and pleading our group of FHE bike riders to pose for the camera at the bottom of snow canyon.

which i realized (after getting home, naturally) that i had set to focus on the BUSHES AND ASPHALT.


good thing i snapped a few more:









**this hello t shirt i saw some dude wearing last weekend. it tickled my fancy.





**as well as it's creepier brother, the helloooo? t shirt





**my day spent at the sagestone spa with two lovely friends. {sigh}

much love to my husband for knowing just what i'd want for the day of all mothers. xoxo.






**hey--woah.

(thanks, tammy, for being genius enough to think that one up!)



the only thing i wasn't thankful for this week?



**the fact that my cowboys got the total SHAFT on the amazing race finale.
