Papason, Little D, and Smelly Kelly

I have lot of nicknames for people in my life. I was thinking about that today after I referred to my roommate as Handysnacks on front of someone who didn't know her. They seemed a little confused. I refer to many things by words I make up and I don't usually stop to consider whether or not people can understand me.

Some other nicknames are as follows:

Rachel Handy (roommate): mainly I call her Handysnacks, although I mix it up with Rachie Roo, Homeschool, and Shredder

Mom: Mamazon (main), Lulabelle

Dad: Papa Bear (main), Papazon, Chuck Diesel, Cranky Curls, Posh, Chappy

Kyle (brother): Kyky the Clown, Lil Kykes, Scooter

Carolyn (HLP): Caroola, Boodle Sandwich

Kelly (lifetime bf): KellBell, Smelly Kelly, Fuzzy Bear

I have lots of other nicknames but it's hard to type so long on my iPod. Maybe I should think of a nickname for my iPod.

Cherry Cough Drops

...are not the best flavor, but it doesn't matter because I can't taste any way. Here are the things I have purchased because I am mad at my cold:

Cherry cough drops

Zinc tablets

Vitamin C tablets

Sudafed multi-symptom SEVERE cold medicine

Orange juice

2 boxes of tissues

Hand soap (to wash my hands comstantly so I never get sick again)

I am so mad about being sick I can't even explain it in words. I could try an analogy:

This cold:me::happy puppies:Cruella de Vil

Or maybe a poem:
This cold makes me want to scream
And punch and kick and pout
I keep getting sick all the time
Don't know what that's about

Being sick totally sucks
Especially because it ruined snow day fun

Two things about Nicole

I am so stuffy with Cold #2 that my ears make poppy sounds when I swallow. I HATE Cold #2.

My duvet cover has one fluffy side and one smoother side. Every night when I go to bed I choose which side I want down based on how cold I am. Tonight? Fluffy down. It's snowy out.

ZOO DAY 2009


I almost went perma-crazy.

I think he loves me.

Okay, it's hard to see but that is my head on the very right on the bottom and Calix's head next to me. AND THE LION'S HEAD RIGHT IN FRONT OF US.

Dingus things I did today

Lost my keys and found them on the stairs after searching for ten minutes.

Missed my exit on my way to work.

Took a serious wrong turn on the same drive.

Dropped cat litter all over the floor while I was cleaning the litter box. Used litter.

R & R

Rachel likes to hide behind things and jump out and scare Ricky. It's kind of funny.

Actually, it's really funny.

Watch the dance at the end. It's worth it. He's so funny.

Sleep In Saturday

Today is Sleep in Saturday.

Since I last blogged, these things have happened to me:
  1. Flying Colors After School Care program started and consumed my entire life.
  2. I pet Ricky the Cat.
  3. Ricky the Cat ignored my petting because there was another cat outside our sliding glass door that he needed to meow at.

He's always meowing at the other cats. I can't tell if he's saying "Please be my friend!" or "Get away from me or I'll kill you!"

Oh, and OF COURSE,

4. I watched the Biggest Loser. MAN I LOVE THAT SHOW.

My life has ben saved by this.

You can't poo on* it until you've tried it.

*"Poo on", here, meaning make fun of it, say you'll never use it, etc. Not a 'poo' reference, in the classic form of the word. It's like when Madeline's teacher says "Poo, poo" to the little girls when they're not doing what they're supposed to.
