The Ramblings of a Redneck Diva

Topic: Rambling much
It's rainy, yucky, thundery, gloomy, coldy, bleh-y. Love winter in Oklahoma. (Careful - last sentence dripping with sarcasm. Watch out.) We aren't lucky enough to get snow like that Better Living guy brags about so often. We get rain. And sometimes a "wintry mix" which sounds utterly delightful, but is nothing more than vertically falling slush from the grey skies above.

I can remember when I was a kid getting a plethora of snow. Or maybe it wasn't really that much, but when you're only 4 feet tall it seems like a lot. I dunno. Until I was an adult it either rained or snowed on my birthday every year. One year I was completely snowed in on my birthday. Mom had worked so hard making 30 or so Big Bird iced cookies (I'm telling you, she worked HARD on those things! They were decorated with real decorator icing and the bird had icing feathers. Feathers!)and it was all for naught. No school party. No family party that night. But Mom was so cool that she fixed me up a spot next to the sliding glass door so I could watch it snow and then she gave me a birthday present every hour on the hour. I sat next to that glass door all day, next to the over a foot of snow piled up on the glass, playing blissfully with all the new Strawberry Shortcakes I was receiving hourly. I think I was 9. I had quite a confectionary village set up, with the enormous Strawberry Trolley, a cardboard box for the mountains and during the day the adorable, sweet and always polite Shortcake crew foiled the always-horrible plots of Sour Grapes and her icky snake, Dregs, and the Peculiar Purple Pieman of Porcupine Peak (Ya dada da da da, da da dada DA!). I even let my annoying little sister join in the play, considering she had the only Huckleberry Pie and that villainous Purple Pieman.

Now I'm pushing 32. I'm so close it's scary. And if I'm lucky we'll get tons of snow and I can set up a sweet, cakey village with my kids and play all day. But... if we get snowed in on my birthday I can't partake of all my free gambling at the casinos! Oh the dilemma...

Hey K,
I hope that we get lots of snow too. If it's going to be as yucky as it is right now then we may as well get to enjoy some snow, right. Today I told Sam that I saw you last night. He said, "At Quapaw Casino?" "No." I told him. "Oh, at Buffalo Run." I love a kid who knows his Indian Gaming! To be quite honest, I am a tad concerned with your amount of Strawberry Shortcake knowledge. I'm a little worried that the kids might get excited watching you build the little cakey village only to find that you built it for you to play with. Have you read the butterbean story over at Monkey's?'s almost too gross to think about. Why would someone share such a story? Note to self...any embarrassing story could very well be blogged at some point.

Innocent little me was gonna ask when your birthday is & now I read the comments & have to be reminded about Butterbean again ... oh no... can't we go anywhere without that? I'll bet that guy would like to know how famous he is. But his girlfriend (ex?) probably will have to go into the witness protection program. Oh no, and now I'm recalling a particular pea hat...

Girls...that butterbean story, I'm afraid, is stuck in our brains for the rest of our lives now. Darn that Monkey!

Karen, I literally laughed out loud when you mentioned my pea hat right after the butterbean story! BAH!

Thanks for commenting, ladies!
