knee deep
Life is turned upside down right now. Not because things aren't going stupendously, but because work deadlines, an overbooked calendar and spotty home Interweb service leave me too far from this e-obsession. I'm tired and not in my right writing mind. Ask Kim. Last night I told her something was "totally whack." She will never let me forget it. Rightfully so.

I don't have much for you today, but was hoping you'd keep me company. Do delurk or leave your beautiful words as you usually do and say hi.

Mama needs the break today.

in your honor, i am so going to use the term "totally whack" today.

Blogger HKW said...

Howdy from Austin. We are adopting a new puppy today. I refer to dogs of all ages puppies, this one is over a year old. An incredibly sweet golden retriever whom we intend to name Boston. The new addition brings our household tally to 2 pups, 2 humans. Totally whack.

Blogger Mamma said...

You wearing your pinstripe pasties today?

I wonder why it is that when I find myself the busiest (like today) that I find myself lured to amusement instead of the work I'm supposed to be doing.

...Sounds like it's just life going just perfectly.

Blogger Scarlet Hip said...

This weather is whacking me out. Word.

Oh I know that feeling. Well, if it makes you feel any better, last night I prefaced a story to a friend with "check it:" Like I was the Fresh Prince of Bel Aire or something...

Blogger Melina said...

Wanna hear something "totally whack"? I started work again yesterday and they deleted my account from the server...this means that I have no access to the computers or anything that I need to do work. I can't even make seating charts (I'm a teacher, obviously). I want to pull my hair out and scream!

Blogger Sue said...

...okay, am I old or what? Totally whack sounds perfectly fine to me... *sigh*

Blogger Lord Fondleberries said...

i'll simply assume you were watching new jack city at the time.

Blogger Alexandra said...

Delurking here...:)
And you've inspired me to start using "totally whack" which is something I don't think I ever did before.

Blogger The Middle Child said...

Kick your feet up woman!

Hope you are feeling more you soon!

Blogger Tracy Kaply said...

Whickity whack, indeed. I thought of you this morning when I had a delicious breakfast sandwich and iced coffee, then a smoke. I was wishing you were here, and Stacy, so we could hang and dish. The cafe across the street from my house has outdoor tables, and you can see the Space Needle.

It would be easier to do this, of course, if the two of you were here. :-)

Hey,

I've been a dirty-assed lurker for the past while, but you may remember me from such witty comments as, "too funny," and "oh, no you di'int!" and "There aren't enough sites out there with good information on the clap. You should come check out my site which has all kinds of great information on the clap.

Just stopping in to say yo.

Yo.

Blogger takin chances said...

I am feeling a bit out of "whack" recently myself. Sounds like you deserve a Calgon moment...with a lovely cocktail.

Blogger Skyzi said...

Who was it that said "whickity, whickity, whickity whack"? I am taking the spelling cue from Tracy. I totally would have spelled it as wiggity.

Yeah.....so this is my hello.

Relax, have fun and then contemplate the true meaning of whickity or wiggity or any other word that could come before "whack" (for example crack is...)

Blogger Ulysses said...

It didn't make you feel "dope"?
My personal style assistant assured me that whenever I used "whack" (and not in my usual way, as "wacky") I would feel dope. I probably need to review that guy's fee schedule.
Have you tried listening to any
wicky-wicky-wicky-wicky recently? It holds up as well as you might've expected.

Blogger t2ed said...

"Totally whack?" You're tipsy dialing again aren't you....

Blogger Kim said...

Whack, seriously?

You're becoming Flava Flav, aren't you?

I swear if you start wearing a gigantic clock around your neck I won't associate with you anymore.

Blogger punky said...

sometimes words fail us. "totally whack" is one of those times. but then there are those word combinations that make us so happy (or me, anyway, and I am the center of my own universe, therefore me=us in this equation) ...

"sweet jesus"

"holy hell"

"pour another"

"fucking hell" (hell seems to be a favorite of mine)

"spank me" ... no wait, I mean ... yeah, nevermind, that's totally what I mean. add an exclamation point at the end of that baby.

so, you know ... stuff like that.

anyway, enjoy your day of rest, mama and we'll see you when you find yourself wading in ankle deep waters again.

Blogger Laurie said...

Occasionally I hear "You go girl" pop out of my mouth and I want to slap myself in the face.

My ex boyfriend replies to statements he agrees with with "Werd", which is misspelled on purpose in writing, thereby making it not just age-inappropriate, but completely embarrassing and a useful reminder of why he's an ex.

Blogger Megan said...

The fall semester of MBA classes starts tonight. Totally and utterly whack.

"Who was it that said "whickity, whickity, whickity whack"?"

Kriss Kross!

I'm here for the first time- "Hi" and good luck with your whacked out life. :)

Blogger Sprezzatura said...

RE: "wikki wikki wikki wikki"

Great. I now have a "Jam on It" earworm. It was precisely for moments like this that I never got rid of that box of Point Pleasant sand-clogged mixed tapes from junior high.

Now if I could only track down a copy of Breakin 2: Electric Boogaloo, my night would be made.

And btw, using "whack" is OK. Peppering your speech with "Mac Daddy" however, is not.

Blogger smileymamaT said...

Hey. I had to come out of the lurk-darkness to say I have become, after about 15 minutes, nearly addicted to reading your blog. And it's my first visit. And I just saw an asshat broke into your car, which sucks and I've been there recently. Hmm. Anyhow, back later! Cause now I have to see how it all comes out! :)

Blogger andpo said...

I am delurking-love your blog-I check in a couple of times a week to see what you are up to. We have several similarities-about the same age, love of cats, and I know exactly how many WW points there is in a bottle of wine.

Blogger janet said...

may I just declare a highly cliche DITTO. I am so behind on life right now. And effing tired. Exhausted. Wishing someone would write my blog for me in the meantime...

Blogger metalia said...

Hello, pretty lady! Hope things calm down for you soon! :)

Blogger Susie said...

i'm obsessed with your blog! it's anything but whackkk :)

Blogger WanderingGirl said...

I feel you, girl. Reality bites. (Now, there's something Kim can work with.)

Breath in, breath out, practice using your 3rd eyelid to find Zen, and all that mumbo-jumbo. This too shall pass, and it will look sooooooooo much better in the rearview mirror!

Blogger Jorge said...

OH HAI!

I'M IN UR BLOG, COMMENTN...

KTHXBAI

Blogger JordanBaker said...

I think if "whack" was in reference to the Whitney Houston drag queen's crack pipe, you're safe.

Blogger *kb* said...

KRIS! I'm a day late and more of a big mouth vs. a lurker, but I'm ok with this...Hi!! :-) Hope today is a bit more breezy for ya! *kb*

Blogger playfulinnc said...

Yes, these are the moments I fantasize about saying I QUIT to a stranger.

Blogger ramblin' girl said...

Deadlines and an overbooked calander? I can definitely relate. My mom was laughing at me over the weekend when I told her she needed to schedule things with me two months out...

Blogger Keith said...

Commencing delurk now...

Fuckity fuck fuck. Now that's totally whack. Just remember, its only a day to the weekend and a nice cold, preferrably alcoholic drink. Hope sanity returns when you need it.

Going back to lurking. :)

Blogger Princess Pointful said...

Hi ya!
Not really a lurker-- instead a first timer (via IndieBlogger).
Hope things get seriously de-whacked soon!!

Blogger canape said...

At least you didn't say "cool beans" and then follow it up with a snort or two.

Blogger The K Life said...

hello! stumbled across your blog, love it! you keep me entertained at work. :)

Huzzah! Bamboozle! Waterfall! Rainbow!

(a few fun and beautiful words for you.)

Blogger Michele said...

"H" to the "I" to the "K" to the "R" to the "I", then Next comes "S"!

Some 80's rap throwback. All whack and shit.

I'm tired.

Blogger Mama G said...

Hello from northern California - where it's hotter than hell and like you, I'm overworked, overbooked, and just plain tired.

But I did want to delurk!

Blogger secretmom said...

Delurking to say hello from the heat of Florida.

Blogger The Hotfessional said...

Totally whack? Abso-fuckin-lutely. Hi Sweetie. Have fun. Remember. A bottle of wine is a wonderful thing.

Blogger gorillabuns said...

def leppard, me loves me some def leppard. though, i can't seem to get the words right on "pour some sugar on me."

is saccharin-free really part of the song?

i'll never forgive my mom for making me miss them in concert way back when. i had to go to ballet instead. as you can see, i'm such a prima donna.

Blogger Courtney said...

Delurking for the first time, love the sass comes standard line. I think I will snag it if you don't mind...

Blogger Jorge said...

What the hell?

Apparently Dave has linked to me in your comments using the words "The Clap".

I highly recommend that people click on that link and come catch the Clap from my site.
