Death By Pillow Pet -Doggoneit!

She's a pillow....


She's a pet

She's a pillow pet! 
Who just happened to get an awesome new pillow for her kennel for Christmas.
She loved it, kneaded it, fluffed it, snored on it....

for a few days...

...then one lonely hour of solitude...

And Zena has totally redecorated with her bed. She seems very happy amid the fluff and foam. And yes...the dog has the name of a super hero (Xena warrior princess IS a super hero in her own right). We have a thing for Super Heroes here at BCC.

I'm thinking this one goes down for the shortest lasting Christmas gift...other than Fruit Cake. Everyone always eats the Fruit Cake, right?

A Witch, A Radish and Poop


You Know You're a Mother When...

...after the 4,283 time your 3 year old asks with a giggle, "But WHY" you finally give into the temptation and answer, "Because I said so! How do you like THAT answer?!" while you cackle like a mad woman and pretend to kick-start your broom and fly around the grocery cart as produce slips from the grasp of onlookers and thuds to the floor.

...you serve chocolate mint chip cookies even though dinner is ready and hot, simply because your child suggests it and it sounds good.

...you argue that a radish really is not an exceptionally small apple, you pinkie promise! It was...a veggie discovered a very long time ago by an old man named Jim who gave it its "funny name". You confirm that yes the man was old like Papa and back then they used words like RAD when things were cool and this guy thought this veggie that popped up in his garden was cool thus came about the "RAD"ish.

...poop is hysterical even when it isn't

...when you find a really really great outfit, on sale even, but take it back before wearing it because you come across something you know your child will love even though they don't need it.

...you're just so worn out from making sure everyone is where they need to be when they need to be there, all the bills are paid (or you're robbing Peter to pay Paul who is pimping Mary to protect John to make sure that at least the lights and water stay on), bodies are clothed in clean clothes, lunches made, folders are in backpacks, time clocks are punched on time, deadlines are met that you hardly notice you've worn the same clothes Friday, Saturday and Sunday and the most water to touch your body is whatever you've managed to drink.

...the mixture of snot, tears and orange powder from cheese puffs makes your heart swell with thankfulness

...a short person looking quite a lot like you and mirroring many of your mannerisms says to you "Oh Mom! Your boob fell out of your pocket again." when you walk into her room directly after getting out of the shower to check on her.

Ten Percenter

credits
I come from a family of 10%'ers. You know, that small smidgen of the cherry pie chart, the 10%, of the population where strange, unfortunate, unlucky, whatinthehell things happen to a person? Yep...that be me..us..we..whichever pronoun you're feeling today. Its genetic on my mom's side. Trust me.

Ninety percent of the apple has been consumed and in the little sliver of flesh and fruit remaining is the 10% of the produce sticker.

That's my luck.

No paper deficiencies here.

I needed to clean the kitchen in a hurry. My bright idea was the "Dash N Stash"; great in theory horrid in application if you're a 10%'er. In a mad DASH , I STASHED a bunch of things in the oven. Over the course of the workday I managed to forget about the Dash N Stash.

Plastic will melt at 400 degrees and bills catch fire.

You're welcome.

Sometimes I think I should just invent a bubble wrap line that is fashionable. I can save the clear stuff for Irishman so I have a 'sexy' version (because even the bedroom isn't safe from me). Surely I can come up with something opaque enough to cover me for daily activities. If not, at the very least I may need to invest in a good bike helmet. In the same day I bent down to retrieve socks from a lower drawer in the chest of drawers and knocked myself nearly unconscious when I slammed my forehead on the lip of the dresser top on the way over, I also managed to clunk myself square in the cranium on the edge of the mantel while cleaning around the fire place ensuring further brain damage.

As if those things aren't bad enough, I can not even begin to call them isolated incidents. Just last week I stopped for a Extra Large Diet Coke while traveling between buildings for work.
Didn't get to drink it. Not. One. Sip. The lid came off... couldn't say it even looked as though I had a wee little accident. It was more like my water broke and splashed all the way up to my boobs.
Perky vagina - Take 2. Seems I have a thing for dumping caffeine in my whoohaa. (yes, those red letters are a link. Check it out...kinda funny)

I Wanna Live THERE -Sweetest Place Evah

The Recipe for Gingerbread Houses in Santa's Village:
170 lbs of Sugar
165 lbs of Flour
1,620 eggs
8 gal of egg whites
20 lbs of Ginger
20 gallons of Molasses
20 lbs of Baking Soda
14 lbs of Salt

I Hope You Choke - A Family Favorite


Now, before I spend the rest of this post bagging on my mother, let me first get out of the way that she is the real life June Cleaver, minus the pearls with just the right amount of piss and vinegar (she isn't afraid to thrown down at the bus stop if someone is messin with her grandkid). 

Mother Duck is a great cook. That's not to say she never turned out a bad meal, burnt one to bricks or experimented with a recipe to epically failing proportions. And by fail I mean, substituting 5 of the 8 ingredients a recipe called for. Most often we never knew unless she told us which was wisely done at the end of the meal.  Pretty safe to say normally we left the table flabbergasted. This time we just left gassed.

"Its a Family Favorite", she called it when asked "whats for dinner tonight?" Not really sure what that meant, it was enough to placate our grumbling bellies for the time being.  The closer it came to our round-table time, we always ate as a family regardless of what else was happening, the greater the suffrage of my nose. At some point I took a break from drawing gas chambers and highlighting the Poison Control hotline numbers in all our phone books (ok...I kid...I don't know what I was doing... probably laid up like a slug on the couch watching Brady Bunch reruns).  When I poked my head in the kitchen I expected to see my mother at the stove with a cauldron of bubbling green goo.

By the time we occupied our spots at the table I'd already decided I wasn't going to like this "family favorite".  With the first bite I gagged, her eyes pinned me to the chair.  With the second bite I audibly choked and spit it in my napkin; she spoke "knock it off. EAT."

*DRAMATIC GASP*

"OHMYGODICAN'TTAKEANYOTHERBITE. THISISSOGROSS! *GASP* HOWCOULDYOUMAKEUSEATTHIS? *TEARS PRODUCED* EVENKIDSIN3RDWORLDCOUNTRIESWOULDN'TEATTHIS.  I MIGHT DIE *GASP*

Somewhere from inside the steam billowing from mother's ears and filling the void of silence where my whining had once occupied came a strained, low grumble sounding wholly possessed and nothing like my mother, "I HOPE YOU CHOKE ON YOUR DINNER."

Things To Stop Doing To Yourself

I always strive to publish original posts regardless of how forked the rail in which my thought train rides. Its just me. I do take pride in what makes me Ducky. That being said here is my disclaimer for today's post...this was simply too awesome to NOT pass along to you! This comes to you via the Marc and Angel Hack Life blog. All credit and content from the period at the end of this sentence belongs to the publisher of that blog.

As Maria Robinson once said, “Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.” Nothing could be closer to the truth. But before you can begin this process of transformation you have to stop doing the things that have been holding you back.


Here are some ideas to get you started:

1.Stop spending time with the wrong people. – Life is too short to spend time with people who suck the happiness out of you. If someone wants you in their life, they’ll make room for you. You shouldn’t have to fight for a spot. Never, ever insist yourself to someone who continuously overlooks your worth. And remember, it’s not the people that stand by your side when you’re at your best, but the ones who stand beside you when you’re at your worst that are your true friends.

2.Stop running from your problems. – Face them head on. No, it won’t be easy. There is no person in the world capable of flawlessly handling every punch thrown at them. We aren’t supposed to be able to instantly solve problems. That’s not how we’re made. In fact, we’re made to get upset, sad, hurt, stumble and fall. Because that’s the whole purpose of living – to face problems, learn, adapt, and solve them over the course of time. This is what ultimately molds us into the person we become.

3.Stop lying to yourself. – You can lie to anyone else in the world, but you can’t lie to yourself. Our lives improve only when we take chances, and the first and most difficult chance we can take is to be honest with ourselves. Read The Road Less Traveled.

4.Stop putting your own needs on the back burner. – The most painful thing is losing yourself in the process of loving someone too much, and forgetting that you are special too. Yes, help others; but help yourself too. If there was ever a moment to follow your passion and do something that matters to you, that moment is now.

5.Stop trying to be someone you’re not. – One of the greatest challenges in life is being yourself in a world that’s trying to make you like everyone else. Someone will always be prettier, someone will always be smarter, someone will always be younger, but they will never be you. Don’t change so people will like you. Be yourself and the right people will love the real you.

6.Stop trying to hold onto the past. – You can’t start the next chapter of your life if you keep re-reading your last one.

7.Stop being scared to make a mistake. – Doing something and getting it wrong is at least ten times more productive than doing nothing. Every success has a trail of failures behind it, and every failure is leading towards success. You end up regretting the things you did NOT do far more than the things you did.

8.Stop berating yourself for old mistakes. – We may love the wrong person and cry about the wrong things, but no matter how things go wrong, one thing is for sure, mistakes help us find the person and things that are right for us. We all make mistakes, have struggles, and even regret things in our past. But you are not your mistakes, you are not your struggles, and you are here NOW with the power to shape your day and your future. Every single thing that has ever happened in your life is preparing you for a moment that is yet to come.

9.Stop trying to buy happiness. – Many of the things we desire are expensive. But the truth is, the things that really satisfy us are totally free – love, laughter and working on our passions.

10.Stop exclusively looking to others for happiness. – If you’re not happy with who you are on the inside, you won’t be happy in a long-term relationship with anyone else either. You have to create stability in your own life first before you can share it with someone else. Read Stumbling on Happiness.

11.Stop being idle. – Don’t think too much or you’ll create a problem that wasn’t even there in the first place. Evaluate situations and take decisive action. You cannot change what you refuse to confront. Making progress involves risk. Period! You can’t make it to second base with your foot on first.

12.Stop thinking you’re not ready. – Nobody ever feels 100% ready when an opportunity arises. Because most great opportunities in life force us to grow beyond our comfort zones, which means we won’t feel totally comfortable at first.

13.Stop getting involved in relationships for the wrong reasons. – Relationships must be chosen wisely. It’s better to be alone than to be in bad company. There’s no need to rush. If something is meant to be, it will happen – in the right time, with the right person, and for the best reason. Fall in love when you’re ready, not when you’re lonely.

14.Stop rejecting new relationships just because old ones didn’t work. – In life you’ll realize that there is a purpose for everyone you meet. Some will test you, some will use you and some will teach you. But most importantly, some will bring out the best in you.

15.Stop trying to compete against everyone else. – Don’t worry about what others doing better than you. Concentrate on beating your own records every day. Success is a battle between YOU and YOURSELF only.

16.Stop being jealous of others. – Jealousy is the art of counting someone else’s blessings instead of your own. Ask yourself this: “What’s something I have that everyone wants?”

17.Stop complaining and feeling sorry for yourself. – Life’s curveballs are thrown for a reason – to shift your path in a direction that is meant for you. You may not see or understand everything the moment it happens, and it may be tough. But reflect back on those negative curveballs thrown at you in the past. You’ll often see that eventually they led you to a better place, person, state of mind, or situation. So smile! Let everyone know that today you are a lot stronger than you were yesterday, and you will be.

18.Stop holding grudges. – Don’t live your life with hate in your heart. You will end up hurting yourself more than the people you hate. Forgiveness is not saying, “What you did to me is okay.” It is saying, “I’m not going to let what you did to me ruin my happiness forever.” Forgiveness is the answer… let go, find peace, liberate yourself! And remember, forgiveness is not just for other people, it’s for you too. If you must, forgive yourself, move on and try to do better next time.

19.Stop letting others bring you down to their level. – Refuse to lower your standards to accommodate those who refuse to raise theirs.

20.Stop wasting time explaining yourself to others. – Your friends don’t need it and your enemies won’t believe it anyway. Just do what you know in your heart is right.

21.Stop doing the same things over and over without taking a break. – The time to take a deep breath is when you don’t have time for it. If you keep doing what you’re doing, you’ll keep getting what you’re getting. Sometimes you need to distance yourself to see things clearly.

22.Stop overlooking the beauty of small moments. – Enjoy the little things, because one day you may look back and discover they were the big things. The best portion of your life will be the small, nameless moments you spend smiling with someone who matters to you.

23.Stop trying to make things perfect. – The real world doesn’t reward perfectionists, it rewards people who get things done. Read Getting Things Done.

24.Stop following the path of least resistance. – Life is not easy, especially when you plan on achieving something worthwhile. Don’t take the easy way out. Do something extraordinary.

25.Stop acting like everything is fine if it isn’t. – It’s okay to fall apart for a little while. You don’t always have to pretend to be strong, and there is no need to constantly prove that everything is going well. You shouldn’t be concerned with what other people are thinking either – cry if you need to – it’s healthy to shed your tears. The sooner you do, the sooner you will be able to smile again.

26.Stop blaming others for your troubles. – The extent to which you can achieve your dreams depends on the extent to which you take responsibility for your life. When you blame others for what you’re going through, you deny responsibility – you give others power over that part of your life.

27.Stop trying to be everything to everyone. – Doing so is impossible, and trying will only burn you out. But making one person smile CAN change the world. Maybe not the whole world, but their world. So narrow your focus.

28.Stop worrying so much. – Worry will not strip tomorrow of its burdens, it will strip today of its joy. One way to check if something is worth mulling over is to ask yourself this question: “Will this matter in one year’s time? Three years? Five years? If not, then it’s not worth worrying about.

29.Stop focusing on what you don’t want to happen. – Focus on what you do want to happen. Positive thinking is at the forefront of every great success story. If you awake every morning with the thought that something wonderful will happen in your life today, and you pay close attention, you’ll often find that you’re right.

30.Stop being ungrateful. – No matter how good or bad you have it, wake up each day thankful for your life. Someone somewhere else is desperately fighting for theirs. Instead of thinking about what you’re missing, try thinking about what you have that everyone else is missing.

To Send or Not To Send

To Send or Not To Send....that is the question.... or is it?

I read a post by a divorced man who was a self proclaimed Christmas Card Asshole Grinch <---his words not mine. He had a LONG post ranting about saving the paper and the stamp and the money because he didn't want the crap. It was his ex-wife who loved all that crap, plastered it all over the fridge for the year and now that he was divorced all he did was toss it in the trash. He didn't want your photos, he didn't want your year-in-review letters. He basically didn't give a rat's ass and just leave him the hell alone to sit and fester with the lump of coal up his ass.

Okay...I added the part about the coal.

I can see his side of it I suppose...to an extent. I DO roll my eyes when I get cards from people I only hear from once a year (at Christmas) and promptly trash the card. Whats the point?

However I DO love getting cards from friends and family and I don't mind at all the "year-in-review" letters that come with. I look forward to sitting down with my cards and hand addressing them and writing messages on each one. I'm still of the old school. I know I could have any one of those services not only sign my name but address, stamp and mail my envelopes for me. That takes the fun out of it.

 I don't have all the time in the world but I do like to sit in the quiet of an evening for the task. Amazingly since my own divorce my Christmas Card list hasn't gotten smaller as one would think but actually doubled in size much to my delight. Of course I don't have the time or the patience to sit and type out a Year In Review letter for my and Lil Duck's accomplishments. I'm never sure how to narrow down the accomplishments and highlights anyway. It would probably look something like...

Lil Duck loves to holler FireButtocks and Safety and make her lovies fart on everyone. She sings and accessorizes like Rock Star Diva. Work sucks, I fell into the toilet, climbed a waterfall and tried to eat a tampon. Lil Duck thinks she's a Princess and likes to call me the Queen. Irishman and I are doing swimmingly well and I have an amazing sexlife. Thing 1, Thing 2 and I are bonding super duper well over farts, airsoft guns and epic rap battles. We're starting new traditions, modifying old ones and my sister is still dead. Santa says he can't bring her back. 
So...that about wraps it up. 
Merry Christmas ~Happy New Year ~Don't Forget My Birthday
 Or I could just write the URL to the blog. That might be a better way to catch up. I think a simple Merry Christmas will suffice it for this little family.

What is your take? Send? Don't Send? Letter? No Letter?

Save A Stamp - Blog A Letter

Dearest ER Nurse~

While I greatly appreciated your humor, I'm pretty sure Irishman did not. You made a usually very unpleasant experience much more tolerable. For that I thank you. I can not guarantee however that Irishman was joking when he said he hoped you were not traveling by plane any time soon. (Two thumbs up on not letting that vein roll on the IV poke. The glove snap was a nice touch too.)

Sincerely,
Ducky
----------------------------------------------------

HEY YOU Boogerlickers~

Iffin you infect me with that puking from both ends crap that is going around, I will bite your ankles, pull your hair and steal your chocolate milk! YOU. HAVE. BEEN. WARNED!

-THE SCARY-SMILEY INTERPRETER LADYDUCK
------------------------------------------------

Dear Hospital~

I do think you should have a group rate and maybe even a family party room. Monday night my sister, brother in law, niece, nephew, mother, Irishman and myself were all present. Congregated in different areas on different floors for different reasons, yes, but all there nonetheless. Plus I have mad gown tying skillz. Surely that counts for something.

Warmest Regards

And ODD Duck

credits
ODD not to be confused with OCD which I do not suffer from except in the realm of GERMS.

At this point in my life I'm pretty comfortable in my oddity and I think at times it lends a certain element of charm to my pizazz. Don't rain on my parade. I'm entitled to my thoughts however erroneous they may be. Some people hear voices, some see invisible people and others have no imagination whatsoever.

Moving along.

 A Twitter convo with @Yorkiemomma from Carries Rambles in which @BabesRockinMami from Babes Rockin Mami chimed in on, brought up my weirdness and it got me thinking. That's always dangerous. Forrest Gump sort of dangerous in that once my mind starts running you never know what yer gonna get.

Ways in which I am ODD...

~I love celery

~and Wasabi Peas

~I have a phobia of swimming in lakes - I'm afraid of JAWS.

~I generally greatly prefer to read a book over watching a move. I do not at all like movies where people die. Period.

~I have never read a Harry Potter book OR seen a Harry Potter movie.

~On that same note I have not read any of the Twlight Series either.

~I can be totally random. My train runs on its own track which is forked in multiple directions to the point that any GPS would spontaneously catch fire and melt into a hunk of useless plastic.
credits
~I am a morning person - to those around me that makes me both odd and highly annoying.
~I never choose the 3rd stall in a public bathroom.

~I love words. I use and understand big ones when I speak. Can't spell worth shit.

~I go to bed between 7:30 and 8 during the week.

Costume SuperCenter -Review

Matters not that Halloween is past and the Christmas season is in full swing, costumes are a staple year round in some homes, mine especially.  If I allowed it, and sometimes I do just because its fun, Lil Duck would sleep in her dress up gear. Disney Princesses Abound! Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Ariel, SilverMist, Tinkerbell, Ballerinas and now Snow White has joined our party.

Well crafted for repeated wear and play, your selection need not be limited to the shorties in your life. Costume SuperCenter carries more than just kids Snow White Costumes, they have a wide selection of costumes for adults as well as your dog! Hitting a themed holiday party or just want Santa to stick you at the to of the naughty list? You'll find options for that too! They even have a section for group costumes. Pretty sure they have whatever you need covered. I have a running wish list of items to add to Lil Duck's dress up collection and catching items on sale and in the 'off season' is a great time to do it. Costume SuperCenter carries not only the costume itself but a large selection of accessories as well; shoes, wands, wigs. Its a one-stop shop!

You'll find costumes starting as low as $4.99 and with "risk free" shopping where they pay shipping for exchanges you can't go wrong! Pay online with your credit card or your paypal account or call and phone your order in, its all designed with your convenience in mind!
