Default ***Misfit Monday (10-24-11)***

Good morning!

I'm ready to have a GOOD week! Preston's birthday is on Thursday - Brandon took the day off so we can spend the day together. We're having pictures taken and P has a dr. appointment. Not sure what else we'll do. Saturday is his party. So far everyone I've invited is coming - we'll have a full house Monday is Halloween and we're taking him trick or treating to a few family/friends houses. He's going to be a penguin and it's the perfect costume because HE'S NOW WALKING!!! I was hoping he'd walk before his first birthday. We're so proud of our little buddy.

Morning all!

Jennifer - how exciting!!!! He is such a cutie!!! Both my girls walked at 13 months. Apparently, I walked at nine months. I must have driven my mother crazy!!!

Hope lots of Misfits check in this week!

HYSTERICAL!!


The Broken Zipper

This is, without a doubt, one of the funniest videos.

It is a minister telling a story to his congregation and it is simply hilarious.

If he ever decides to change his profession he'd make a great comedian!

Click below, turn up your speaker and be prepared to have a good laugh!

The picture was a pumpkin Halloween costume I bought for him. I returned it because it was too small (but after I got a picture )

He's going to be a penguin - waddle and all!

Yeah, he was not amused with being dressed up. That's what we call the 'Don't Mama' face - I get it a lot

No matter what the costume, he will look terrific!! Wish Preston could come trick or treating here.

Good morning!

We have a playdate with Preston's little friend who also just started walking. Can't wait to see the 2 of them waddling around. Happy to have some mommy to mommy time too

It's a beautifully sunny, blue-sky day. It's all supposed to change tonight and a big storm is moving in bringing us our first real snowstorm. Looking forward to trying out my AWD in the new car.

Jennifer - this stuff happens and with kids in the house, it is worse! I know you'll find them - but that doesn't help when you NEED them!

It is a nice, sunny, breezy fall day. Now I need to get on the ball and get some things done.

Oh sweetie, that is how it is sometimes when you have a child... I remember going around all upset trying to find Janine's shoes that I had just polished. She was around two and we had to get to the doctor's for her well check up. Janine starting crying asking for juice - opened the fridge and...... yup, there were her shoes. Part of motherhood.

I'm sure I'm the one that misplaced the cord and camera. I feel so lost without them! I take pictures almost daily of something. I can't remember the last time I used it either.

Had a wonderful lunch with my friend. She told me that she's PREGNANT!! I'm sooo very happy for her! Maybe I need to join her so our second children are the same age too

The big storm is moving in quickly. I'm going to go fertilize my grass and bring in my pots of flowers before it snows.

jennifer- I am always misplacing things... my dad used to say it was the ghost in the wall. LOL Snow???
Jen- Snow out east???
Joanne- How are things going?
Sherry- has it cooled down, yet?
I am going with my sister to the MN Historical Society. She is speaking about the book again. I guess I will know her story as well as her. Then on 11-11 at 11AM, she will be on MPR. I have the day off... so I guess I will hear it again. She really needs support to make it through the program. It is hard for her to speak about Vietnam. Even though it has been almost 45 yrs ago.

Jennifer - I wonder if you will get pregnant more easily this time! I know friends that that has happened to! After the first one, their body learned how to be pregnant!

I haven't gone outside yet. I cleaned the bathroom instead - much more fun. My mama's coming over tonight and we're going to get the decorations for Preston's party. I heard from 2 more people today - everyone I invited is coming!! I was stressing that I didn't send out the invitations early enough and was sure nobody would come. I over worry.

Really going outside now...

Joan, what book is your sister speaking about regarding Vietnam. It was a very tough time and hard to believe that 45 years have passed. Knew many people back then who went to fight and remember some that did not come back.

Hey all - I've been tired all day. So tired I could barely keep my eyes open. My bed is really YELLING my name, but it is only 8:30. I have to wait a little longer.

Have to take our cocker spaniel to the vet tomorrow. Her gums look swollen and red - although tonight they didn't look so bad. Oh well, better safe than sorry. '

The two Jens - keep the snow where it is, please. It is too early!!! I am not ready.

Is this a newly written book about her personal experience and those who lived in Minnesota? Bet there are some personal heartfelt stories.

This may not be all that funny but having gone through several days of deposition, just had to post.... I did it in green because of all $$$$ spent....

Lawsuit Party Animal
I'm a party in a lawsuit.

A person involved in a lawsuit is called a 'party' with the same ironic misuse of language that a person who has been sitting in a doctor's waiting room for 2.5 hours is called a 'patient.' There's no party that I can see, though I suppose it is true that everyone there has received a written invitation.

The fun starts with the deposition, a process by which the attorneys for the other side ask a series of mind-numbing questions in an effort to prove that your lawsuit is completely boring. Here's some of the actual transcript from my deposition:

Opposing Counsel: Now, Mr. Cameron, before we get started, if at any time you feel like you need to use the bathroom, you should advise me, because if I know you are in physical distress I'll enjoy this more.

Me: Okay.

Opposing Counsel: First question. You're supposedly some kind of humorist, so that must mean you had pretty bad parents, right?

My Attorney: Objection. You have not established that my client even had parents. For all we know, he came out of some kind of worm.

Opposing Counsel: I'll withdraw the question if you'll stipulate that your client is an idiot.

My Attorney: I think that's obvious, so yes, I'll stipulate.

Me: Uh, could I talk to my attorney for a minute?

Opposing Counsel: Sure, if you have something to hide. Otherwise, you'll just answer the question.

Me: What question'

Opposing Counsel: Let the record show that the witness is evasive and ugly.

My Attorney: Plus he has really poor taste in clothing.

Me: Hey!

My Attorney: I can't help it. I think your tie is unethical.

Opposing Counsel: Now Mr. Cameron, let me show you a photograph. Do you recognize the house in this picture?

Me: No.

Opposing Counsel: That's because it's mine. I plan to use the money from my billing on this deposition to make this month's mortgage payment, so I'll need to drag out the proceedings a bit today.

My Attorney: That's okay, I'm saving to buy a sailboat.

Opposing Counsel: So, Mr. Cameron, next question. Do you really believe that you'll recover enough from this lawsuit to even begin paying your attorney fees?

My Attorney: Objection; we've already established my client is an idiot.

Opposing Counsel: Look, if you keep objecting to everything I say we're both just going to make a lot more money, so I suggest you continue doing it.

My Attorney: Can I just say, I have never found you more attractive than I do at this moment.

Me: Yes, I do think I'll recover enough to more than pay my attorney fees.

Opposing Counsel: You are a humorist!

My Attorney: May I speak to my client' I'm getting a little nauseated, here. (To me, whispering.) Hey listen, while doing this I'm going to work on another case so I can double bill, is that okay?

Opposing Counsel: Ha! I can hear you!

Me: No! We're wasting time. Can't you get this thing moving' This is costing a lot of money!

My Attorney: Look, did you buy that tie at a garage sale or something' I mean, lordy.

Opposing Counsel: Lordy pordy pie!

Me: Can we just get on with this, please?

Opposing Counsel: I could hear you the whole time, you know.

Me: I know, that's fine, I don't care.

Opposing Counsel: Have you ever been afflicted with jaundice, boll weevils, a persistent itch in places you can't scratch, knife wounds from someone you don't know, or that gross stuff in the corner of your eye in the morning?

Me: What does that have to do with anything?

My Attorney: Hang on, I'm the attorney here. Objection, with the exception of the boll weevils, what does this have to do with anything?

Opposing Counsel: We're having a blood drive at work and I wanted to see if he can donate.

Me: No to everything except the eye stuff.

Opposing Counsel: Eew!

My Attorney: That's really gross.

Opposing Counsel: Well, let's take a break here so we can continue billing while we drink coffee.

My Attorney: Good idea!

(Deposition ends)

It's snowing, snowing, snowing! Preston was watching it through the patio door - he was mesmerized watching it fall. Sooo pretty!

Joan - about September 3,4 or 5 give or take a day, it cooled dramtically. Have not had a 100 degree day since and it is wonderful!

Please give your sister a hug for me! She is a hero and so strong! I'll be praying for strength and no nerves when she gives her talks!

I am going with my sister to the MN Historical Society. She is speaking about the book again. I guess I will know her story as well as her. Then on 11-11 at 11AM, she will be on MPR. I have the day off... so I guess I will hear it again. She really needs support to make it through the program. It is hard for her to speak about Vietnam. Even though it has been almost 45 yrs ago.

Jennifer - enjoy the snow. And keep it in CO! Thank you!

Took my Scarlet to the vet and she is fine. She does have some teeth that could use a cleaning, but her last one was only 10 months ago. She'll get Nyla-bones to chew on instead. She loves them. The only problem is that Tiki takes them and hides them in dirty laundry, the closet (under Bill's shoes) and odd places like that. My dogs are so weird.

Julie and I ran some errands. She got a cotton long-sleeved shirt to just hang around in, I got a new pair of jeans. Hit the grocery store and now I'm home. At least I DID something today.
