I cannot believe it! I have been Bangalored!

Bangalored, adj., ( of a corporation, project or employment) having been relocated to India, esp.

Bangalore has changed it's name back to it's original name of Bengalaru, meaning "town of boiled beans".
The reason being: "i've been Bangalored" not sitting well with officials and locals. Can't say as I blame them!
OK, this comic all in fun, folks! You know I love India, and especially Bangalore!
Did you know I saved this comic from last Christmas because I never got around to posting it?
I hope it gives you a giggle.
I also hope that none of you have been "bangalored" lately, or is it "Bengalarued"?

I am Mrs Nesbitt!

I feel like I've been out saving the galaxy when I should be sucking down darjeeling with Marie Antoinette and her little sisters!
I have 2 weeks before I go to India.
The hotel prices are killing me.
I used to be able to stay in a 3 star hotel for 20 bucks a night! Now.....I dont even wanna think.
The inflated prices and technology boom in Bangalore is destroying it's people even more.
For the first time, I am going to feel guilty for being a "rich American" in India, when actually, I make under $20K a year.....
I have a ton of sewing to do before I go.
Last night, I was going to stay up late sewing, but a storm knocked out our power.
I am probably going to have to euthanize my dog before I go.
That is going to be ....just....terrible....it's coming though...
I have lost 33 pounds this year!
I have spent a fortune on pants this summer!
Does anyone have some chocolate I can have?
I am going to turn 46 on Friday. EEEEKKK!!!!
Am I going to be naked for HNT?
Since that's what's expected, most likely NOT!

I love my online girlfriends, and I have neglected them. BTW ladies, and gent, did you get your Holiday Crapola yet? I expect blogging!

Have a great week, all!

Ritualistic Post Feast Mushroom Stroll

We couldn't have asked for a lovelier Thanksgiving Day!

Amanita Muscaria loves our orchard!

Warning, do NOT eat! (hee hee)

Our neighbors barn, the geese and the aengus.

Our other neighbors pumpkin patch leftovers.

Well um ya see it's like this: When a deer gets struck by a car out on the highway, our neighbors pick it up and put it in our orchard for the turkey vultures to eat. Ok, I know it's gross, but, can you think of a better thing to do with a deer corpse? We are waiting for the skull to erm, come loose so we can hang it on our outside hallway. Ewww~ (Outside hallway, what? Our house has a large open hallway, rain, frost and all we have to endure in order to get to the other part of the house. Ok, that's another story entirely.)

Shadow dancing!

I have been told that I am outstanding in my field!

Wow, it's true! Here I am, out standing in my field!

(Oh Logo, looky! It's a pair of my best selling Urban Prairie Girl pants! It's about time I showed you, huh? This pair has pumpkins on it, are you at all surprised?)

Hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving and hey, we've still got 3 more days before Monday, hurray! Enjoy it!

Flyin' free Tenaciously....

Mr Ratburn and I are seeing Tenacious D tonight in the city at Bill Graham Civic! 99% sausage, and I'll be there! Are you ready to grow with the D? You bet I am!


Yes, that is Jack Black, and no, Tenacious D is NOT a rap group! Tenacious D is Jack Black and Kyle Gass. In case you don't know, Jack Black is possessed with bodacious musical talent! Now get out there and grow with the D!

Here's a sweet video from you tube....Free Hugs

It'll make you smile, I promise!

55Flash Fiction Friday

Rita's mom often made her participate in the blogging thing. Today was no exception. Rita had to model this shirt for swaporama because Mom thought the chemical's in that shirt might disolve her skin.
"You'll be fine, Rita, just do it."
Later on, "Mom, what's this wierd rash I have on my arms?"

One main character, a plot, fiction? Nooo, this shirt is stranger than fiction. This lovely garment was sent to me by Logo, but I do believe that it once hung in the closet of Mr Lime.......where does one buy such a garment I ask you? Bradleys?
Let me know if you played so we can all come and check it out!

Faeries in Seattle...and more!

I had four fortune cookies for breakfast.
Your emotional nature is strong and sensitive.
The philosophy of one century is the common sense of the next.

You'll discover something wonderful about yourself.

All the preparation you've done will finally be paying off!

I miss my Seattle pals!

Quit Playin' With Your Food!

Candy Wrapper Gown!
I have been thinking for a long time about making a dress out of candy wrappers. I could never eat enough candy to do it though! I wished I had thought of this before Halloween, but, hey, if any of you out there have a naughty candy habit, would you consider opening carefully and saving the wrappers for me? (Opening carefully? What?) :D I love this gown, and if anyone can find me the larger pic, I'd love to post it.
These are also candy wrappers, but miniature!

This garment is made entirely of marshmallow PEEPS!

If you want to see all of the Edible art, go here.

More fashion silliness! Enter your bridesmade dress pics and win a prize! Lime? LOL!!!!
Bridesmaids Dress Incinerator Site! You have to check this out!

Save me your candy wrappers please!

Who Am I? ...and other Stuffs

If you know who I am, leave a hint for the next person, but don't tell them my name!

Lisa Pizza has a fun new post up today all about Catalina Island! Head on over and check it out. Heck, I grew up in Southern California, but I didn't know half the stuff that Lisa does about Catalina! And, if you still don't know who that is up there, the title of Lisa's blog is a dead giveaway. Go on over and tell her Susie sent you!
In other news, sometimes people send me weird pictures:
Uh, nope, it sure ain't Kansas anymore, Dot!

Little Rita Does 55Flash Fiction Friday!

My mom is making me wait for her to do this stupid 55 bla bla bla.
I want to go on Petz 5, but NOOOOOO, she won't let me!
..because of her stupid 55 bla bla bla
then she has to upload dumb songs and I dont want her to!
I AM NOT AMUSED! Pfffttttttt!!!!!!!!!!

Think it's time for a second computer in this house?

Ok, about this Vets thing......thank you to all that have served and made it out alive...and those of you that didn't, may you rest in peace.
But this I really have to say, if you are a young American man, please do not sacrifice your life so that people can have fuel for their SUV's. Please don't be fooled into giving up your life for the fat white pasty old men that run this country.
My father was a Lifer in the Navy, my brother, 10 years. I'm not speaking from complete ignorance here. I thank my lucky stars that my brother served during Peacetime, and my father, well, he was just good at dodging explosives!
In fact, while my father made it pretty safely through his service, there was the time that he..LMAO..fell down the stairs on his ship and broke his leg!
Anyway, I say, next war, every healthy American male over 50 gets their fat asses out there and take some schrapnel! Whaddya say? Or even better, for every young man that enlists, let him bring his parents with him so they can watch him get blown up.....nice huh? Well, maybe if they had to see it.....
I'm sorry, I thank the goddesses everyday that I have no sons. I would be the one hiding them out in the woods in Canada when they became old enough to sacrifice for oil.
That's how I see it..deal with it. If you are a Vet, I am more than grateful for what you have done , but even more grateful that you made it out alive!
Bless you all.
I apologize if I have offended...but this is my blog, and that is how I feel. That I chose this day to say this, well, some of you might think disrespectful. I think this is the perfect day to remind you that you'd rather watch your sons grow old than put flowers on their grave.......

Shadow Dance HNT

Do it light
Taking me throught the night
Shadow dancing
Baby you do it right
Give me more
Drag me across the floor
Shadow dancing
All this and nothing more....
OK OK that's just about enough of that!
First Andy wants us to do it light, and the next thing you know, he's dragging us across the floor! What kind of dance is that? Sheesh! No thanks! I think I'll just stay outside and play with Mr Ratburn!
Shadow Dance HNT is inspired by someone's footprint in the snow HNT (who was that?)....got me thinking about self portraits where you are not actually in the picture, yet it is still very much you.
Notice that even though i'm 20 feet tall in this picture, (me on the right) that my ass still looks huge? Well fuck, you can't win em all!

Happy HNT Everyone!

In Which Much Crap is Blogged and Can She Bake A Cherry Pie? You bet!

Today I blog about crapola and other nonsense:
Let us start with this! This is just about the best shade of red, ever! And it tastes good too!
And remember when I tell you, do NOT ever drop an opened pomegranate onto the floor....can you say "clean up on aisle 4?"
Let's just say that neither of us wants to be rescued by each other in the event of a near-drowning!

OK I have to laugh cuz, the pie looks a tiny bit burnt, (I fell asleep while it was baking!) and so is our sacred plaque that originated in the deep, dark jungles of some enchanted island, made its way to some overrun with deer foresty place, and now it's come to me. Thank you Lime, for sending me this lovely plaque. I know the alternative is a patriotic nightmare of a shirt! My life is now complete. I can't think of anything better to do than to honor this most sacred piece of crapola items than by offering it the teeny little pie!
But, I wanna know, how comes Snavs didnt have to take this plaque before me? I think I know where it's off to next. :P
Snav's sent me a lovely miniature baking set, some of the parts can be viewed in this shot! Just wait til I bake a batch of teeny little blueberry muffins with the tiny muffin tin she also sent!
Ok I know I look a bit frazzled, but it's after 1 am, and the teeny pie is finally finished, because, I could not fit three pies in my oven at once, even though one was just teeny! Am I dedicated? Yes!

Ta dum!
BTW, in case you were wondering, I am quite the pie expert, and it tastes delicious!
Have a great week, everyone!

55Flash Fic...no wait...this is even better!

I'm sorry, I shamelessly stole this from someone else's blog. I thought this was more important, and besides, I ain't got no 55 yet! Maybe later.

You know what? It's 63 words..that is close enough, and no, I won't take out torturing prisoners, lying to congress, or spying on Americans!
