Why is it?

 Why is it when you are trying to diet, all you can think of is sweets, and fattening foods?
How do those girl scouts know that I can’t resist, thin mints? Get thee behind me, Girl Scouts!
I have found that IF I have goodies and put them out in the freezer, that just knowing they are there is some kind of security. I don’t have to eat them, because I know it’s there IF I did want some… make sense? NO? LOL
Last night my husband almost burned our house down. I had made french toast, etc. for dinner. He decided about 10:30pm that he wanted more, so, he turned on the cast iron frying pan that had oil in it, on HIGH, then promptly forgot about it… That is until I noticed flames shooting out of the pan and burning my kitchen ceiling and hood vent.
Last time he did this, he grabbed the pan, stuck it in the sink and turned on the WATER!
(Just in case you didn’t know, that’s the WORSE thing you can do) It was like a nuclear explosion, with flames. My curtains went up in flames, I still have black burned ceiling above the sink, and he (deservedly so) lost eyebrows, some hair and burnt his hands.
This time he was smart enough to let me handle it. Baking soda, a lid to smother, and turn off the burner.
It’s a good thing we are starting to remodel things around here.
We had to open every door and window the smoke was so bad…. I HATE smoke detectors. Ours went off AFTER I noticed the smoke and fire.
I had freaked out cats, dog and girls.
OH the fun and excitement! Don’t come too close I still smell like smokey BBQ! lol
I rented, Casino Royale. I’m a big Bond fan from wayyyyyy back. I liked this one. I like the "new" Bond. He’s not a pretty boy like some of the past ones, but very sexy. I prefer his rugged male looks. He’s got the greatest blue eyes… those eyes are lethal! Judy Dench was a really good "M."
I loved some of the lines. He orders a martini and the bartender asks if he wants it shaken or stirred, and he replies with, "Do I look like I give a damn?"
I loved the whole movie. It had great quips, chase scenes that made you say, "NO freakin way!" (my favorite kind), explosions, gorgeous cars wrecked and even though we all knew "She" would get killed by the end of the movie, it was interesting to see how it happened. I mean, come on, anyone who knows Bond movies knows that the really important women in his life all have to die by the end of the movie. DUH!
How did your day go? BIG HUGS, Steph

    i laughed at your comments – you are a hoot – funny thing, i have seen your comments and kitty pic all over the place on spaces and we finally smacked into each other – i added you to my friends – hope that\’s okie dokie – yeah – i do need to BS with my kids better, a white lie to cover my lack of knowledge.  Your fire story is too funny – men!  and boys!  my son has lit and thrown so many matches (he throws them from the fear he gets when he sees the fire – ding dong kid) that i have sworn i am going to take him to the firehouse (which actually i like myself as the firemen here are also hot) and have them scare him a bit.  such a mean mom aren\’t i?  heehee!  ttfn ~ tressie (so glad you stopped by – thanks!)

    YOu must have a thicker freezer than I do.  Those dang Girl Scout cookies call to me CONSTANTLY until I let them out……one by one …until there is nothing in there but an empty box.  The box doesn\’t say anything so I know that it is totally the cookies.  Then the stupid things slip right past my stomach and go straight to my hips.  Dang Girl Scouts. 
    Tell your husband, next time he\’s hungry to EAT THE GIRL SCOUT COOKIES!
