Great weekend!

4 hour long Blogger gathering on Saturday. All the links are in my sidebar/blogroll. It was a great time. 75th St Brewery was a perfect place for us. We were at the back of the bar/restaurant where it was a bit more quiet. Which was exactly what we needed to be able to talk. The waitress was top notch. Food was wonderful. Think I'll try the pizza next time. My 2 raspberry beers were pretty good too. We missed those that couldn't make it. And we did talk about ya!

New people to our group: Meesha / Kansas City with a Russian Accent
Chimpo / Chimpotle
Logtar & wife Beatriz
Muddy Mo
Bull E. Vard /KC Beer Blog

Regular people in our Group: XO/Hip Suburban White Guy

Average Jane

We have a house guest & have been running doing stuff. I did get bloggers added to my blog roll & Google Reader. Went & checked out our new members ( for lack of a better word) blogs. Posted a few comments. I probably won't have time to post until January 1st. My New Year's resolution is to try to curb dropping the F-bomb so much. I may have to be a bit more creative. I'm headed to a nice warm bed. That is if Kanga remembered to turn the electric blanket on. If he didn't he will pay!!!!! My cold feet on his hot ass!!!!!

Have a safe & Happy New Year. Hugs, kisses & bubbly for everybody!

10 things I've learned in 2007

Thanks to Zhu I must inflict this meme on you.

1. If you want to hit a home run you must first step up to the plate. I had wanted to be sure that local bloggers got together on at least a monthly basis. So at the first blogger gatherings I asked if they wanted to be on a blogger email list. Usually I try to coordinate the date & place so as to have the most bloggers there. Just call me "Ms. Moneypenny".

2. That there are some darker beers that I'll drink. Thanks Dan! But they have only been Dan's home brewed ones.

3. Blogging can be an addiction. OMG! I spend way too much time on this. Wish yall sucked at writing.

4. Back up your hard drive! Need I say more?

5. I've learned how to knit cables. Why did I think it was hard?

6. I think I've learned to knit socks (at least I found a pattern that doesn't suck)

7. Not all Republicans are assholes! Some are biatches, right Faith & Cara?

8. Even though I don't like change it will be ok.

9. You
can meet some great people on the web. And you don't even have to date them.

10. I learned that Zhu really like memes! LOL!

Who ever wants to give it a go consider yourself tagged

Christmas shopping for bloggers

After finally getting out of that damn room. Thanks EMAW! I was wasting time over at Cafe Press.
This one made me think of The D. Here's another for you D. And this too! This one for TKC. LOL! I like this one. They had it in a thong. And here is one for KCSponge. What about this for Chimpo? I know So Many Books wouldn't wear this, but I thought of her when I saw it. But she might wear this. Who for this? Hmmm maybe XO? How about this Keith? This brought Faith to mind. Then this did too. You're one of the few people I know that does exercise. Erin, this is for you. Except you are very cute in person too! I can so see Heather saying this! Here's another for her. Love this! Stink, this one's for you. So glad you don't. Kristine, this is so you. Emaw how about this? Finally, I found one for Janet. I could easily hear JustCara say this. Found mine! This one is Michelle. Dan, maybe this? Or this?Absolutely this. Happy in Bag would like this. Nightmare, here's yours. For Kanga I found a few, like this one, this. Average Jane would like this I think. Here's one for Kansas City Daily Photo. This for Toast.

Too bad I can't afford to get all this for you. Merry Christmas anyway!

Last minute shopping: Zhu, I found this for you!

I've been tagged by XO for a Twilight Zone Moment Meme.

Here are the "rules".


You should post these rules:

Recall and relate a time when you experienced a "paranormal event"
Explain it rationally if you can
Inflict this meme on 5 other people

Years ago, I lived in Olathe in a rental house. That house had a fenced yard, but Murlin, the black lab I had then, would jump it. Therefore, I had a chain that I would attach to his collar that kept him from getting out. One morning, very early, Murlin wanted out. I attached the chain and closed the sliding glass door and went back to bed. The weather was nice, so I wasn't worried about him. When I got up maybe an hour later I went to let Murlin in and he was gone. He and half of his chain had made it over the fence. I looked at the broken end and I could see that it had just worn through from the concrete patio. I put some clothes on and went looking for him.

If you look at this map you can see the streets I went down, Mahaffie, Church, Sunset, Cedar, Elm...

When I got back home he wasn't sitting on the front porch like he had done in the past. My neighbor was leaving and I told him. He said that he would drive around to see if he could find him ( he was a dog lover too!). I was exhausted and it was still early morning. I decided to lay on the couch in case the neighbor or Murlin came to the front door. Next thing I knew I was walking on the railroad tracks (see map) heading south. I would call Murlin, then wait to see if I heard him. After calling for 10-15 minutes I heard a bark. I walked a bit farther on the tracks then called again. I heard another bark. Walked a bit more and called again. Then I heard a yelp. By that time I was probably passed E Wabash St. I followed the barking that Murlin was making, which took me down the gravel on the west side of the tracks. Murlin had managed to tangle his broken chain in a bush and was caught there in this yard with a bunch of kids. They were planning on calling me later (dog tag with name and phone number!!) Probably when the kids were tired of playing with him. Murlin and I headed north towards home using the train tracks. The next thing I know is me waking up thinking that he must be hungry. I get off the couch and look for Murlin and he's not there. He's not in the house or in the yard. So I decided to go look for him along the train tracks. I would call Murlin, then wait to see if I heard him. After calling for 10-15 minutes I heard a bark. I walked a bit farther on the tracks then called again. I heard another bark. Walked a bit more and called again. Then I heard a yelp. By that time I was probably passed E Wabash St. I followed the barking that Murlin was making, which took me down the gravel on the west side of the tracks. Murlin had managed to tangle his broken chain in a bush and was caught there in this yard with a bunch of kids. They were planning on calling me later.

Everything was the same! I realized that the first time I went looking for Murlin I never physically left the couch. I later heard it could be astral projection. Or is it

Precognitive or Prophetic Dreams
You dream about events that manifest in the future usually within 3 weeks if not immediately. These can be personal or universal messages.

Or is it something else? I don't know. I've never done it again. I hadn't tried to do it. It just happened. All I know is my beloved dog was missing, I found him while laying on the couch.

I tagging these ladies because I would love to hear their experiences.






If anybody else has an urge (LOL) to write let me know.

Theme Song

I've put Deezer on my side bar with my theme song, "Spider Woman" from Uriah Heep's album The Magician's Birthday. Loved that album when I was in high school.

Citizens Of The World

Zhu over at My New Life In Canada has honored me with "Citizen of the World" award. She even created a button for it. She has also said that we, who she awarded, are to pass the award on. I would like to pass this award to:

Stinkbait Boucher/Trelvix: And then I said
Melinda: Scribblings from Sarajevo
Eolai gan Fheile: Irish KC
Meesha: Kansas City with the Russian Accent

I'm having issues with linking these 4 bloggers. So go to my side blogroll.

Greg was my 100th!

I just realized that I have written 167 posts. I wasn't aware that I had written my 100th post. So I went back & counted. My post Greg Beck flipped our switch! was my 100th post. I never could have planned that. But then none of us planned on losing Greg. Funny how he keeps popping up. Gone but not forgot.

Things That Make Life Easier... Or Not

Just bought this at Westlake hardware for $9.99 this week. Sandy, the cat, always seemed to be hiding the remote under her before. Since buying this it's harder for her to hide it from us. But she did turn it one one day while we were gone. Ours doesn't glow in the dark.


Never lose your remote again!
With giant buttons, this extra-large remote is easy to use and impossible to lose. It's a 6-in-1 remote so you can use it to control your TV, VCR, DVD player, satellite, cable and auxiliary A/V device. It even features glow-in-the-dark buttons, so you can easily find the remote in the dark.

Got your attention didn't I? hahahahaha Fooled you! Just rocking out to Barenaked Ladies while we clean house. Be safe out there. Went out to fill one of the bird feeders & nearly busted my butt. It is slick. Luckily we are staying in today. We have friends coming over for our famous pizza. Yesterday was Big Hair's birthday so we are celebrating today. Now I have to go thaw berries for the sorbet that I'm making. I also made the sauce for the pizza. What a domestic goddess I am today! Hubby, Kanga, just said he wants me to be a domestic goddess tonight! A goddess' work is never done.

Later mere mortals!

Happy Birthday Greg!

We love & miss you big guy!

Michelle/Well Hell Michelle organized Greg's birthday gathering. He would have been 49 years old. Greg's Mom Jessie & sister Stephanie were there when I arrived. So was Nightmare/Smells Like Bullshit & his fiance, Keith/SaderFamily, Michelle/Well Hell Michelle & her spouse Eric/Dangerblog, Kristine/Filegirl, Librarian/So Many Books, So Little Time, and my spouse Kanga/Beneath the Ginko. Jessie had put together a wonderful album full of pictures of Greg, some of his writings, awards, certifications, also cards that they had received. It was great seeing them again at a time when we weren't all in shock. Stephanie even called brother Cliff while there & we all hollered hello to him. There were a lot of Greg's other friends there that I didn't know.

We can honestly say that the chicken wasn't as good as Greg made it. But then he put a lot of love in it.

Bitch slapped!

Not really! But Kristine from Filegirl gave me what for for not reporting who showed up for Harvesters last Saturday. I'm linking to 3 bloggers that are new to our group. I've just added them to my side blogroll. The rest have been there since I've met them. So here goes:

Dan/Gone Mild & wife Robin
Celeste/Average Jane
Janet/Ramblings, Rants, and Mommyhood Journal
Fate/Fate's Thoughts
Moody Foodie/Give In To Temptation
Ancillary Adams
Michelle/Well Hell Michelle
Toast/The M.Toast Hivemind
XO/Hip Suburban White Guy
Kanga/Beneath the Ginko & myself

We busted our butts doing a great job. I think we all felt like we did something very worth while & would be willing to do it again. Afterwards we went over to Dan & Robin's for brats, homebrew ,& pizza.....

Not as geeky as I thought!

45% Geek

Mesa Dating

Who would think that Michelle is more of a geek than me?

Overall, you're a friendly drunk who's likely to buy a whole round for your friends... many times.
Sometimes you can be a bit boring when you drink. You may be prone to go on about topics no one cares about.
