Blast from the past.

At Towwas's request, I went looking for our old quote boards to post some choice zingers "so people can see how funny we are when being dumb." These quotes are circa 1994-1996 and definitely R rated- we dropped a lot of F bombs back then, apparently.

I found them and will sprinkle choice selections from them from time to time. But here are some other things that I found:

1) the 90210 picture of me, Towwas, DMcG, and R-Val.
2) Jolly Time pogs.
3) A sign than says "Booty" with an arrow, clearly made by me but I cannot for the life of me remember for what reason.
4) A picture of me drawn by my sister, in which I am "b*tching about breadsticks."
5) the scorecard from a massive Scrabble beatdown: J-Vo vs. Dr. Feelgood, final score 329-206.

and, my personal favorite:

a postcard from J-Bru from Australia, with a postscript added by Towwas, that reads, "You are such a f*king wh*re- everybody knows you down here as the biggest sl*t in the universe."


Family of Crocs.

I had sworn that Crocs would never touch my feet, b/c they "remind me too much of work." However, the good folks at Charter Communications awarded me with a pair for being such a great online customer. And then I broke down and got A-Vo a pair for school (long story).

So, I present to you, the first Vo family blog foot picture. T-Vo is still Crocless. We'll see how long that lasts. Note the cool "Charter Communications" buttons on mine. Needless to say, I probably won't be wearing these too many places.

Family circus alert!!!

An artistic, yet still anonymous picture of Mother and Child Vo.

In case any of you are wondering how the potty training is going, let me tell you this:
A-Vo can hold her pee. And she does it only while she sits on the potty, b/c godDAMN if she's going to let it out over that death trap.
On Mommy? Yes.
In bed? Yes.
All over the bathtub? Of course.
In the potty? Dear god, no way!

T minus 12 hours and counting...

until the Vo Board Exam #1 for T-Vo. T-minus 60 hours for me.

snacks? check.
directions to testing center? check.
#2 pencils? It's a computer test. Not necessary.
Layered clothing for appropriate thermoregulation? check.
GLJAB? check!

Quote of the decade:

I plan to make this my personal motto from now on:

From Sebastian Bach, former lead singer of Skid Row:

"When somebody tells me that I'm rockin' too hard, I'm like, 'You're f*king RIGHT I'm f*king rockin' too hard!!"

Because you can substitute any verb for "rock" and it's still awesome.

Hey there, Delilah!

Your song sucks! And so does your radio show!

I would just really like to know how something that is frickin' SPRAYED OUT OF AN AEROSOL CAN can be considered organic.

Anybody? Anybody?

CNN Heroes: Battling MS with Kevin Bacon

Is that similar to having lunch with Connie Chung?

Lessons from a 2-year-old...

You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him pee on the potty. Or poop.

Believe me, I've tried!

Good grief, part 2...

Anybody else yet receive the OAM 2008 calendar? And does anybody else NOT want a pinup calendar of the class of 2009? These calendars have become progressively crappy over the past 5 years....BACK IN MY DAY, when we had dialup modems and we had zoobooks, not FAcebook, the calendars had pictures of buildings. And we liked it, dammit!

Oh good grief!

Please, somebody, anybody, PLEASE tell me that somebody with half a brain also likes Britney's new single....PLEASE???

Come see!

This is one of the many reasons you should come visit us, in addition to the grocery store tour.

I would also make you brunch.

Reasons to love grocery shopping.

Anytime you move to a new place, you're always struck by the quirky things you find there, which make you think, "where the H did I move to?!?" Case in point: our new grocery store...

Here is what you see immediately upon entering said store:

It's the wall o' Roll Your Own Tobacco Products!

As you turn right, before you get into the produce section, you find yourself in the:

Wall o' Every Liquor You've Ever Heard Of and Many You Haven't!

Turning left again, you see:
Also known in some areas as, "This week's specials," or "On sale this week."

And A-Vo's favorite wall?
The Wall o' Stuffed Buffalo Head, Miniature Stuffed Buffaloes, and Frozen Buffalo Meat.

I'll take the GOOD tour.

Today, as A-Vo and I were touring around the countryside, we came across a tour bus. Not surprising as those sightings are not uncommon around here. This one, however, was notable for its tour title: "The Good Time Tour."

Makes me wonder where the Bad Time Tour will take you. To hell in a handbasket, perhaps?

World's greatest medication name:

It's pronounced, "asthma-nex." However, I think we'd all agree that it would be waaaay better if it were pronounced, "ass-man-X."

A void now filled.

Because what the world really needed was carbonated yogurt.

Thanks, Yoplait!

To be filed under: have a heart attack and die from not surprised...

Because of this.

Mark your calendars now.

Diabetes Awareness Month is in November. Prepare for your upcoming enlightenment!
