Random Tuesday: It's Magically Delicious

Hey all, this is Captain Dumbass from Us & Them. Confused, keep reading.*

(If you came over from my blog, I may have stretched the truth a little about the wrinkles and penis enlargement, but since you're here already...)


This is my little sister's 100th post and she asked if I'd guest post for it. What could I say? She let me stay at her house this weekend and fed me while the Dumbass family was up visiting Dumbasistan. So, here's a Random Tuesday 100th post guest blog. Or, my sister's 99th post and my 846th since she didn't actually write it. Cheater.

Dear God, did I just use the words "little sister" and "penis enlargement" in the same sentence? No. There's a picture in the middle. And three periods. *move on, move on*

Cardboard cloud

How about a few "thank yous."

Thanks Miki, my darling niece, for stamping Liam with purple dots from what I can only imagine was a Sharpie. Those 200 purple dots are still there on his arms, legs, stomach and chest. They're not going anywhere either which is good since he's decided they are his little purple spider friends.

I'd really like to thank my children for making our trip back from my family's so enjoyable. Really, hearing you two draw out the word 'booooooooring' or asking 'are we home yet?' every kilometre of our nearly 400 kilometre trip was magical. Truly magical. Yes, honey, we're home. We live in a FUCKING FORREST!

And thank you Josh and Dakoda for teaching my sons 'stupid jokes.' These are jokes that aren't funny unless you're under 4 feet tall and don't make any sense whatsoever. Apparently a lot of them had something to do with a stapler because staplers are funny. Really funny. If you're six. Thanks.

Thanks, Liam, I've always thought my hair was zero too.

Thanks, Connor. Should I take it as a sign that you see daddy as a T.rex?

In the middle of writing this I got a call from Supreme Leader telling me she'd just emailed me a link. It was a quick call. There was mirth. The link turned out to be Grammar Girl: Quick & Dirty Tips. Guess she's getting tired of my constantly asking her where I need an apostrophe. A couple of weeks ago she actually stuck some post-it notes to the front of our computer with my usual offenses. I can already feel the teachers who read me shaking their heads. What can I say, I'm getting dumber. I am pleased to see that while 'alright' (which I use constantly) isn't technically a word, since language is constantly in flux, it is on its way to becoming real. *sticks tongue out*

Speaking of Post-it notes...

Heh heh.

Ok, you know the routine. Head to Keely's, grab a button.

*Still confused? Sucker!

RTT: Beach Ass,Coffee Art and The death of Martha

Wow, this is my 97th post, I am almost at 100.

Anyways kiddies it's that time again, unload your inner thoughts,weirdness, or just plain randomness!!!
This past weekend my family went on our first camping trip of the year, I managed to take around 300 photo's, and no I am not going to make you look at them all, just a few of my favorites.

First, I have a question for ya! If you are sitting on a public beach and it's a warm sunny day and there is a slight breeze, would you not feel the wind on your ass?? Especially when half of it is hanging out the back of your pants.

My husband was the first to notice this so of course I grabbed my camera, he looked at me strangely and told me I was weird. No way baby, that is a blog post waiting to happen. Ever notice now how everything becomes a blog idea, and the best part is you don't have to search to hard because there is random weirdness all around!!!

This one I like cause it just looks cool

Now I want you to meet Martha

Martha was created by Me and my children for one reason only................

Pure entertainment!!!!!

Almost done I promise, but seriously people, when you take 300 photo's it's hard to just pick a few.......

And lastly a nice shot of the lake first thing in the morning.

Head over to Keely's grab a button and join in on the fun!

hmmmmm, I got no title for ya!

Wow, it's been 8 days since my last blog!My husband was away on a business trip all last week so I was playing role of mom and dad, and we all went camping this weekend so I haven't had any time. I know, excuses, excuses. Well Last week my kids school took part in a project called stream of dreams, they learned about conserving water and helping to keep our rivers,lakes and oceans clean. Each child got to paint a wooden salmon, and then they were hung out on the fence. I volunteered to help putting the salmon up on the fence. Only 3 parents, including myself showed up, so it took us about 6 hours!!!! When it was done it looked awesome. I have some great camping pictures but I wanted to share this one first.

Here's me busy working on hanging up the little fish

Here's the boy with his fish, notice the giant afro!!! I have been trying to get him to cut it but he doesn't want to. What is a mom to do?

Here's Mik with her fish!

The eye of the tiger RTT

Random Tuesday....Again!! Didn't we just do this??? Is it me or are the weeks going by extremely fast. Now it's Tuesday again and yes I know they are random thoughts, but I've got nothing!!! seriously!!! I feel pressured to come up with something witty and smart, funny or interesting. Well sorry but I have nothing, maybe I should have saved my brother's birthday post for today. So lets see if I can come up with something.
I got a new lawn mower. It's bright green (my husband broke the old one by mowing over a stump from a tree that we lost to the pine beetle last year(whole other story) anyways I had to go by a new one and I picked the bright shinny green one!

Ok I have had this video of my kids for quite some time It was too big of a file so It has taken me awhile to shrink it........ Now there is a spot in the middle where it goes dark, I don't know why it goes dark, it doesn't really matter I am just telling you so you don't think, shitty video, what's going on? Is it over? So you know, it's short, get over it!!!! Also my son tends to wail on the drums, so they are loud, I need to buy the little covers that go over them so they aren't so loud!!

Mik's version of Roxanne

Rocking to Metallica!
