OMG ROTFL – for those of you non-geeks OMG = Oh my gosh ROTFL= rolling on the floor laughing. Anyhoo, I get the mail today and start skimming through a small locally run paper with a few articles & ads called Southern Homestead: Northshore Edition , because – you never know what you will find. […]
Dear kids, I wanted to let you know how much I have enjoyed spending time with you and your gazillion friends this summer. As a matter of fact, I couldn’t think of anything better to do with my time. . The dog is smart enough to hide under the bed for privacy. I wish I […]
Go to the 4 minute mark and tell me if you can’t totally see a Tucker Carlson spoof! Still looking for a shirt manufacturer to make “Tucker can’t afford me” shirts!
Ramon the pool boy with the good body, my maid and myself are heading off for a wonderful 12 hour ride in the mommy van tomorrow. Who am I kidding? I am all these people! Before you get that jealous look on you face about Greta’s fantabulous vacation – remember this: I will be driving […]
* I’m canceling our Disney vacation and am planning on opening my own theme park in the backyard. “Squirrel World” could be the next theme park craze. I’ll create a cute little fuzzy squirrel mascot, charge admission to my backyard and let the world view all the little buggers who are feasting on my dang […]
Nothing to say…yet. So I thought I’d share this sign.
I fess up, I have 3 kids well out of diapers & never heard of Boudreaux’s Butt Paste. That is…until the other night at #1 son’s baseball game. I’m chatting away and somehow the subject of this miracle potion comes up. I can’t stop laughing at the name and even better…laughing at all the things […]
This morning I woke the little monsters up early. Why wake sleeping children – isn’t that breaking every law known to civilization? Well, it is hot here – it is summer in the South dagnabbit. The mommy-van maxed out at 105 by noon. Does that tell you something? I planned a Slidell excursion for today. […]
I started to wonder what the “Picayune” in the Times-Picayune meant. It seems like there are so many unique words to the area, I don’t dare take a stab at it. Of course my kids call it the “Times-Pick your nose.” Other creative ways it can be used: “What in the Picayune are you doing […]
I see the word everywhere and until last night – realized it isn’t a place to take the family to visit! D’OH! Dang I feel stupid. Good thing I didn’t load the kids up in the car to go there for a picnic! Answers.com had the best definitions! laÂ·gniappe (lÄƒn’yÉ™p, lÄƒn-yÄƒp’) pronunciation n. Chiefly Southern […]
Our bestest friends from Oklahoma are in town for a Saturday through Tuesday visit. Saturday they arrived and I had a poolside spread of crawfish & baked bries that I bought at the Mandeville Farmer’s Market & a spinach pie and doberge cake from the Mandeville bakery. I had Abita beer of all flavors on […]
Abita is the “local beer” and jackpot, a really nice family 2 doors down (congrats on the birth of their baby today) has has a garage full of it. Yes, we are big beer connoisseurs here in the Perry house (dang wine allergy). He gave us a few of each flavor to sample. If you […]
That’s it, I’m re-writing mapquest for NOLA. I headed off to an Organizing job in Uptown yesterday. I have no idea where Uptown is, Downtown, Mid-town, wrong side of town- I only know landmarks. There is no map grid when you are driving that says – “YOU ARE HEADING TOWARDS THE WESTERN PERIMETER OF UPTOWN!!!!” […]
A local recently edumacated me about Boudreaux & Thibodeau jokes. I grew up in MA where every joke started with a Rabbi & a Priest…what do I know? I went on to Lousiana 101 to learn a little more. Now I get it…sort of. Example… After he was dead, a Cajun discovered himself in Hell. […]
