Who Am I?

Well, inquisitive reader, let me answer. I am a wife, a mom and I have chronic bad hair. I like made uppy words and Unnecessary Capitalization. If you know who the guy in the bottom right picture is, you're probably my best friend. Also, I own several Edward dolls which I write about HERE. No, I don't use drugs. By the way, if your love canned tomatoes, visit my stash HERE.

Which reminds me of...

So, today, on my daily news scan I came across this video about NBC moving Conan's show:



Dude. It's like, 43 minutes long. No, this is not my attempt to have you sit on my blog for an hour. Or maybe it is and I've just blown my wickedly clever plan.

Anyways, poor Conan. Conan is my favorite. He's hysterically funny. Has wicked awesome hair. He's the best. I heart Conan. Where he goes, I will follow. Preferably to an earlier time slot because we folks who work in the morning so have to Hulu Conan to see him.

And so, watching this clip, it reminds me of...

Arsenio Hall.

Remember Arsenio? Cool guy with geometric hair? Early 90's decor? Need a reminder? I live to serve so...



This is his final show intro. Poor Arsenio. His ratings began to slip. In fact, I'm not real sure how popular his show was to begin with. In fact, there's lots of semi-popular things out there, things that deserve more air time.

And so, watching this clip, it reminds me of...



Homestarrunner.com. My favorite segment is the Teen Girl Squad. Awesome. This particular clip is about Valentine's Day. Which is right around the corner. We mostly ignore it in our house. But I did get the coolest gift ever from my Hubs one Valentine's Day many moons ago.

So, watching this clip, it reminds me of...


Pork rinds. Confused?

See, one day whilst visiting his parents, I went to take a shower. It was Valentine's Day. I got out of the shower and got dressed. When I opened the door, on the floor was a line of a pork rind and one of these...





Yes. A Hershey Kiss. I followed the line of pork rinds and Hershey Kisses, all leading to my room. At the end of the line, there sat a crystal dish full of the same with a sign that read HOGS AND KISSES.

Yes, the romance. It's choking you right now, isn't it? The fragrance of love wafting to your nostrils like the smell of a new bag of pork rinds just opened.

It's awesome. My most favoritist Valentine's Day gift ever.

And so if you, dear reader, need a quick Valentine's Day gift, think of pork rinds and kisses. It's a good one. Unless you're dieting. Or don't eat pork.

Which reminds me, we really need to buy some bacon.

Haha.... I heart Conan too. Plus he's super- tall. I'm not sure why that matters, but in my world it does. Also, I may steal your Valetine's gift for Steve. He hearts prok rinds, but they are banned from our house, so it would be extra special.

I love Conan and feel kind bad for him. He's got guts. I liked A. Hall too. Glad I'm not in TV...what a rat race.

Oh man, don't get me started on the tragedy that has befell Co Co!

Maybe if I stuff my face w/ pork rinds dipped in chocolate I'll be ok about it.

Man, I gotta do that.

If my husband left me a trail of pork rinds and kisses, I'd be inclined to jump his bones as his own Valentine's Day gift.

(Conan's hair scares me)

Hogs and kisses is very impressive. Very impressive, indeed.

Now I'm trying to think of my own trail to leave... Coffee cups and kisses? (Mugs and kisses.) Fake roaches and kisses? (Bugs and kisses.) Pictures of the the dog from "Up" and kisses? (Dugs and kisses.) What possibilities...

Thanks for stopping by on my SITS day, I greatly appreciate it, and now I'm here to spread the comment-love!

I'm thinking Conan is leaving for bigger and better things, at least that's what I keep telling myself!
