Manor Moil

funny pictures-Wow, Monday rolled right over your face, dinnit?

Nah, it wasn’t Monday that did it, it was Saturday.  I swear, we did more running around that day than we probably have in a year. 

But we have all new tires now and the problem with the battery has been taken care of! 

The tires took the longest so we walked around … and around … and around … and around the mall, well mostly Sears but the mall too. 

We are not mall shoppers. 

And they lied about where their food court was.  I just looked it up online too – the food court is actually about 5 miles from where the signs said it was.  You think I’m kidding – let me show you!  Check this out!

1 is where we walked out of Sears into the mall.
2 is where we saw the sign that said “Food Court!”
3 is where we decided to forget it and just go back to Sears.
The circle is where the food court really is, and you can see the trail of bread crumbs I made to show you how far away it was.  Heh, now that I look at it like this, that layout seems kind of lame.  You can’t cut across sections, like from green to red, or blue to purple.  You have to go all the way around.  See?  5 miles easy.  Quit rolling your eyes at me.

So that’s why my place is a mess and I’m going to be focused on housework today.  All that running around over the weekend, combined with the deadline on getting the edits done the previous week and a half, mean I did little to no housework.  Okay okay, I blew it all off, all right?  But I edited my husband’s book.  Open-mouthed smile  Neener.  Now I have to pay the piper, lookout vacuum, here I come!

And how was your weekend?

Tuesday Tootsies

Movies and games and cars, oh my!  Staples of American pop culture, right?

These are the official shoe releases for the remake (?) of the movie Tron.  I kid you not.  They made couture shoes for Tron.  You know, I still haven’t seen that movie, but I kinda like those shoes.

We’re OFF to see the Wizard!  Follow the Yellow Brick Road!  Perhaps the most famous shoes in movie history, those ruby slippers.

Looking to make an investment?  These are the original shoes worn by Marty McFly in the 1st Back to the Future movie.  I heard they were for sale at auction for 25k.  Your mileage may vary.

Like Pacman?  Now you can get the shoes to show your love.

Or slippers, if you’re the more relaxed type.  :)

Want a Porsche?  We all do, right?  These even have the official Porsche logo.

These almost look like a face to me, with the way the “headlights” set into the shoe, they look like eyes.   I see these and I hear that line (was it Ted Nugent singing it?), “My face is a Mazeratti.”  I know these aren’t Mazeratti shoes, but that’s the line that goes through my mind.  I can’t drive 55 either.

Friday Fragments

I’ve been saving this one for a while now.  Click here –>>Seraphic Secret: Jews and Carburetors to see some vintage cars.  It’s seriously classic art.  They knew how to make them in those days!  In many ways, I long for that.  Now-a-days it seems like all cars look the same and there’s no individuality or creativity anymore.  You already know how much I adore the muscle cars of the 60s, take a look at these beauties from the 30s.  I have a whole new appreciation for them, I confess.  :)  Here’s a taste of what to expect.

This pic just made me laugh, and reminded me of my blogger bud Bob, from What About Bob fame.  No idea why, because he’s not into the catnip scene on any level – that I know of!  ;)

Oh my gosh!  My kids got THEM! again from the library, and are running around singing one of the lines from it.  Some homeless drunk guy in a hospital was being questioned, and he kept bursting into this little ditty, “Make me a Sergeant, charge the booze!”  I’m not even sure they know what booze is!  What will the neighbors think?

Now for some funny!

Email Oops

A Minnesota couple decided to vacation to Florida during the winter.  They planned to stay at the very same hotel where they spent their honeymoon 20 years earlier.  Because of hectic schedules, it was difficult to coordinate their travel schedules.  So, the husband left Minnesota and flew to Florida on Thursday.  His wife would fly down the following day.

The husband checked into the hotel.  There was a computer in his room, so he decided to send an e-mail to his wife.  However, he accidentally left out one letter in her e-mail address, and without realizing his error, he sent the e-mail. 

Meanwhile…. somewhere in Houston, a widow had just returned home from her husband’s funeral.  He was a minister of many years who was called home to glory following a sudden heart attack.  The widow decided to check her e-mail, expecting messages from relatives and friends.  After reading the first message, she fainted. 

The widow’s son rushed into the room, found his mother on the floor, and saw the computer screen which read:

To: My Loving Wife
Subject: I’ve Arrived
Date: 16 May 2003

I know you’re surprised to hear from me.  They have computers here now and you are allowed to send e-mails to your loved ones.  I’ve just arrived and have been checked in.  I see that everything has been prepared for your arrival tomorrow.  Looking forward to seeing you then!  Hope your journey is not as uneventful as mine was.

P.S. Sure is hot down here!

Have an awesome weekend.  It’s a long one, woo!
