Hey, It's Okay Tuesday - Smilin' Bob, Tweets, and Pickles

On Tuesdays I've taken to joining in with Whispering Writer on a an idea she borrowed from Glamour Magazine. She calls it It's Okay Tuesdays. It's when we can take a moment and tell ourselves that those quirky things we think and do are...well....OKAY!


HEY, IT'S OKAY....

...to keep hanging on to those 972 craft kits and projects, because you really are going to start working on them.  Probably tomorrow.  If you-know-where freezes over.

...to think they should turn the guy who shot all those kids in Norway over to the parents.  Talk about swift justice.

...to wish commercials for feminine products, male enhancement drugs, and KY went back to being shrouded in mystery and foggy photography, because it's really awkward to be sitting there with, oh, say your daughter's boyfriend or your minister and the commercial for the his and hers KY comes on.  Or the one about Smilin' Bob.

...to not really think the world lost out on a huge talent with the death of Amy Winehouse....and to think that half the people who say it is, are saying so to be nice.

...to think Obama's speech last night was nothing but pretty, yet totally empty words made to stir up more anti-Republican sentiment just in time for the 2012 campaign.

...to be addicted to Blake Shelton's tweets.  They're like a car wreck....so bad, but I can't look away.  I haven't decided yet if he is a moron and an alcoholic for real or if it's all an act.

...to be buying my daughter a tattoo for her birthday.  It's what she wants.  Surprisingly, the husband isn't upset about that at all, but you'd have thought the world was coming to an end when I took the boy to get his ear pierced.

...to be thrilled the NFL lockout is over!  Steeler training camp starts in my town on Thursday.  First public practice is Friday.  The road to the Super Bowl starts here.

...to want to try making these pickles I saw in a magazine....whole dill pickles soaked in kool-aid.  Apparently they're quite the thing down in the Mississippi Delta.  They have a sweet/sour thing going on and they take on the neon color of whatever flavor you soak them in.  How awesome does that sound?

Go Colts!

So glad my husband will have football to watch this fall/winter.

Of course, I'm hoping he's working so much I'll have to record the games for him...

Colts? Who are the Colts? ;) I hope you husband is blessed with plenty of work, too...but leave the man time for football on Sunday afternoon!

I don't know about the dill pickles and kool-aid Stacy Lynn. Let me know what you think.
You comment about the commercials for feminine products cracked me up.

Stacy Lynn said...

I'll let you know Rochelle. I'll probably get the stuff and try them this weekend.

This is fun. I may have to join you next week!

Stacy Lynn said...

Sheena...I love seeing what others come up with so let me know if you do!

So you're a Steelers fan? I have to admit to not watching any televised sports (except for the Olympics ... then I'm glued to the TV) so I wasn't too upset about the football thing. But I'm happy for those of you who have been devastated had there been no football!

And AMEN to those ads! Half of them make me blush even when I'm the only one in the room! And who on earth sits in side by side outdoor bathtubs watching a sunset! Give me a break!

Stacy Lynn said...

Side by side bathtubs? I don't think I've seen that one. The one that kills me in mixed company is the KY one where the couple gets rid of the kids and only has a short amount of time alone so....

Mmm, I'd try a pickle like that. I love pickles.
