Once again it is Saturday and time for the 13th of 50 Burning Questions. Answer YES or NO on the quick and easy poll below. Your answer is secret and will not be sold.  

Oscar Wilde

I have always adored Oscar Wilde.

“The optimist sees the donut, the pessimist sees the hole.” ~ Oscar Wilde

This (below) is my cat Oscar who was named after Oscar Wilde. Stay with me here a bit… We had a gray kitten, but I didn’t want to name him Dorian Gray, so I called him Oscar. That was eight years ago. He is wild, especially when we’re trying to sleep. And like Oscar Wilde, my Oscar is a talker.

Marla Todd _ Oscar Gray

This is Oscar. I love this cat so much.

But we’re not here to talk about cats, Oscar Wilde, or donuts, or the fact that some people spell it “doughnuts.” Why the fur-ball would anyone spell it doughnuts?

But Oscar Wilde, and my cat have a point there. You want to see the donut. I mean, don’t YOU?

What we’re talking about is blood, because as you all know this IS a Vampire blog. And don’t you forget it. OK you can forget it if you’re afraid of Vampires.

We’re also talking about ill tempered Vampires, and others who insist on being negative all of the time and are all doom and gloom and oozing with negativity. Who needs that?

This is also a PARENTING blog so just be forewarned if you’re afraid of parents, or children.

I know you’re all getting tired of me, and I’ve completely confused you (on purpose mind you) so here you go… Burning Question #13… drum roll please.

Burning Question #13: Is a pessimist’s blood type B-negative?

 

jellydonut

Always go for the jelly filled ones.

All negativity aside… I mean, how can you get negative when donuts are involved? Thank you so much for dropping by. I’ll see you next Saturday, or hopefully before then. B-positive!

Spay it again Sam

We all need our dogs.

We all need our dogs.

 

Our dog was spayed today. Thanks SPCA.

At ten months old she weighs seventy-five pounds. She will get larger.

So in the meantime Clara asked if dogs will get phantom uterus when they’re spayed.

Then Teddy said that would be a great name for a band. Phantom Uterus.

Then I said, “When they finish a song they can say ovary and out.”

My child laughed and my husband Teddy threw up his hands and said, “Where does she come up with this stuff?”

Then it turned to Uranus puns. You know where that leads.

That is it for tonight. Got to get back to the Giants/Cubs game. Let’s Go Giants!

When boys get sappy

Clara: “Hey Mom, I hate it when boys get all sappy.”

Me: “Tell him shut the Efron up.”

Note: My fifteen year old daughter and I were talking about movies and, well, puns happen. It is what we do. Talk and laugh with your teens – it is the best time you’ll ever spend.
