The Week in Pics - Sort of

Hey hey hey! Lookie what I got in the mail! From Suzy at Hollywood: Where HOT Comes to Die. I've been wearing it all over the place. I think it makes me look kinda tough, don't you? Like, don't-mess-with-me tough? Shit happens in Hollywood, and I ain't a-scared tough? Except I'm semi-smiling, which kind of discounts my ability to intimidate even a gerbil. Anyway, I love it. So thanks, Suzy! Y'all, if you haven't visited Suzy, a very funny lady, go now. Wait, read all the way down, gift me with a comment, THEN go visit.




Gillian from A Daft Scots Lass gifted me with two awards. She likes me, she really likes me! Honest Scrap and Beautiful Blogger. (Aw, shucks.) Gillian is a Scot who now lives in South Africa. Is that intriguing or what?

Y'all go visit Gillian and say hey.

I also got the Beautiful Blogger Award from Miz Dinah at Dinah Gogina, which is a new blog from a Vancouver girl.

Y'all go visit Miz Dinah too.
Help get her off to a good start.

I'm supposed to list seven things about me, per the rules of these thangs, but what I want to divulge at the moment is not really printable or appropriate, even for THIS blog. At least not without causing significant embarrassment to my family. It's all about them, people (them, them, them), so I must refrain.

Frankly, it's nice to know other bloggers appreciate the total B.S. I send out into the world, so thanks, Gillian and Miz Dinah, for recognizing awefabuwondercredible B.S. when you see it. If we pass on the street, though, I guess I wouldn't blame you if you pretended you'd never heard of me before . . . I mean, that Penis Week thing just happened, like a total accident or something. I can't be held responsible.

My daughter TG wanted to go to Goodwill recently, in search of a small chest of drawers for my #3 daughter who's visiting with her three-year-old from NOLA for TWO MONTHS! So I tagged along with TG and found myself in the book aisles (big surprise), scouring the titles for Christopher Buckley's Supreme Courtship, which I never did find. I think that book has been avoiding me for about a year. We didn't find the dresser either, but we did find this magical little ditty:

Talk about your smokin' deal! Who cares if these puppies are pre-owned, right? They must be special or somebody wouldn't have taken the time to hang them up. Now tell the truth, wouldn't these make a great gift for your special guy? Just in time for Spring Break.

Look how proud of her find TG is. We don't actually know how much these skivs were cuz we were sort of befuddled and giddy in the moment, but we're going with priceless.

Totally cute shirt!! And you look hawt in it! Congrats on your awards and those undies were just what I was looking for to give hubby for my anniversary!

injaynesworld said...

Congratulations on the much-deserved awards. I also visited Suzy and you're right. She's one funny broad.

Kristina P. said...

Ewwww, why would they sell those?

daisyfae said...

the Hot isn't dying in Ms. Fragrant Liar's neighborhood! rockin' the t-shirt!

mac said...

I don't think it's the shirt. But, nice picture! It's easy to see where your daughter get's that cuteness from ;-)

I don't even understand underwear, let alone used underwear. Who would want to wear those?

I decided about twenty years ago to just stop wearing underwear. I don't know if it's a guy thing or not. But I enjoy the freedom that going commando provides :-)

Candice said...

You look hot in the shirt for sure, but the underwear? That's just a hot mess!

I can almost smell the skid mark from here.

Miz Dinah said...

Thanks FL! Enjoy your awards.

On the skivvies, ewww! I hope they weren't stained or anything. And I hope no one is ever desperate enough to buy them.

Herding Cats said...

Wow. Used underware?

powdergirl said...

Yeah, if it werent for the half smile, you;d totally look like a thug in that T-shirt.

Scrappy Latina's everywhere are cringing in fear.

I'll go visit your new friend, bein' as she and I are practically neighbors and all

Eva Gallant said...

First of all, TMI, Mac!

Great pic of you in the tee; not so much the used undies! Hope there weren't residual skid marks!

Gillian said...

I love your TeeShirt! Very funky. Thanx for the shout out..I love your BS blog (as you put it). Mine is just as much, if not more, BS than yours.

Bagman and Butler said...

Yup! Absolutely hot and clearly not dead. Not sure what to expect with Penis Week. Is there another week coming up sometime for men to drool over?

Divine Chaos said...

don't you always get the preowned skivs? I mean, times are hard, yanno. It's economically responsible


ok I kinda gagged a little at the thought .. but still!

Secretia said...

Wow, smokinhg hot you are in this photo!
You are hosting a "Penis Week?"
Are you sending out invitations or something? That's brave.

TechnoBabe said...

Congrats on the multi awards!! You are such a great writer and so funny. I always look forward to reading your posts. I am really glad you got the awards. And the shirt!! Dang, how can someone with grown children look like a teeny bopper still ?
Thanks for the links to the other blogs. No wonder you like their blogs.
Good to know you frequent Goodwill. We like the local thrift shop, dig through books and have such fun. I'm a cheap date. Again, congrats!

ellen abbott said...

congrats on the awards. I received several months ago and (shame on me) never got around to acknowledging them on my blog (though I did through comments on the givers blogs). Now I can't remember what and from who! I'm just bad like that.

foxy said...

Those panties (yes, they're ALL called "panties" - men's or women's) are looking all awesome on that hanger!!!

Danica said...

LOve the shirt! Totally cute.

But WTF on the undies???? Who would buy such a thing? YUCK

Redbush said...

Congrats on all your awards! The t-shirt rocks!

Kay said...

great find!!! haha i mean, really????

Nanc Twop said...

Penis Week? Starts in April 1st.

Wow.

Are they provided, or is this a grow-your-own kinda deal? Because I'm thinking I'll need more than a month...

;-)

Suzy said...

Seriously, you look so hot in that shirt that I'm going to replace my sister's pic on my sidebar with....YOURS!!!

With a link!!!

Because I'm drunk!!!

Kidding, but I am going to use your pic unless you don't want me to and then I will hit you in the head.

tattytiara said...

Suzy definitely gives good t-shirt, and you wear it very well!

And if I would go 100% bare assed in the harshest Canadian winter before I wore second hand underwear.

Ruth said...

I think the tightie bluesies would make a good White Elephant gift, don't you?

Madame DeFarge said...

T-Shirt great, but those pants? Why would you out them into a charity shop, let alone buy them? Somethings are just not right.

Sea Witch said...

Hot in the shirt lady. Now, my sister and I have always found finding "panties" in a good will or thrift store just giggle forever hilarious. Must be a child moment for us because we will just resort to stupidity giggles for hours. We once found a huge pair of granny panties (big enough for about 4 people to get into and sis couldn't wait to hang them on the end cap for all to see). We hung around that goodwill for hours just watching people turn the corner and come face to face with those bad boys and then we would dissolve into laughter. Oh well, you get your joy where you can find it. Sea Witch

phd in yogurtry said...

That's William F. Buckley's son, isn't it? I've been wanting to read that one, too. Let me know how you like it, once you find it. And if I find it first, I'll let you know!

P.S. You'd be hot in any old t-shirt, maybe even sky blue tighties.

Michelle Wells Grant said...

Just wondering if you checked for skid marks. Hmmmm?

Eternally Distracted said...

You're looking coolio in that hot t-shirt!! ;)

Farmers Wife said...

You sexy thing with your tshirt and your bed hair!!!!

diane said...

You look awesome!
Used skivvies? eww.even.in.baby.blue.

Breathe said...

You know, I'm just impressed it's on a hanger.

Nice shirt too! :)

midlifeslices said...

oohh..la la.

Can you tell I've been in Paris for 4 days? O.k. so it was Paris in Las Vegas but still....

Vegas Linda Lou said...

Man, you look HOT, girlfriend!!!

Snappy Di said...

Yes... I read Suzy's blog and love the t-shirt she sent you.. sooo jealous.

Ixnay on the underwear in blue.. I'd have to be pretty darned hard up to give those as a gift.

Here's what I can tell you: a week ago, I helped tote three Subaru loads of SPENDY clothes (thousands and thousands of dollars of suits my friend used to wear when she worked for a Congressman in D.C.) and terrific books, etc. to an Austin Goodwill, so keep trolling there; you guys will find some good stuff!

♥ Braja said...

Hot totally died in Hollywood, that much is certain...

Kimber honey, have you changed your name??

Shrinky said...

Neat shirt! Do you think they laundered those undies before they recycled them? Never mind, I don't need to know..

The Pipster said...

Hey there - visiting from Suzy's site and now following. -Pippi

Susan said...

I'm waiting with bait like breath for penis week!! I have a shirt but it doesn't fit me very well. I'm wishing Suzy had 3xl's. Maybe if she features me, I'll model wearing it without pants. And like Suzy, I don't wear undies. You're welcome.

Conquer The Monkey said...

you look HOT in that shirt :) and congrats on all your awards, you are a sassy funny and deserving bloggy gal!

Sir Thomas AKA (Winters Reaper) said...

makes you look sexy as hell...


*sighs*
