I believe the word you are looking for is “MASTICATE” !!

November 4, 2011 at 10:55 am (Birthday Wishes, Day to Day, For Lorraine, Giant Food) (, , , , , , )

Thanks cuz!! You crazy lady!! But, for the effort, here is a giant piece of cake for you to chew on!! This is also your birthday gift! Doesn’t it look delicious? Can you see how big it is?? America has problems with these giant desserts.

Anyway, I didn’t realize your birthday was the same day as “Leftover Halloween.” Another fine holiday that I made up yesterday. If I had known I would have included you in the festivities.

So, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! To my cousin Lorraine!!! Wooo…..you are my most consistent reader and commenter!! (Throwing out that challenge to the other five….step it up people!!) And an all around cool chick on her own! (If anyone is confused, she’s the one who lives on a farm in the middle of nowhere, but they do have internet, so win-win!) Hope the day was great! And thank you for giving me an excellent opportunity to post that picture of the giant chocolate cake. I seriously had justย  moved it to my “extra pics” file a few days ago, heartbroken, because I had no good reason to put it on here. In your honor, I have created a special category “For Lorraine” (to the right) just for you! YOU ROCK!!

Coincidentally, I might have to start “macerating” my food just so I can eat! Jaw pain stinks!! I’m still undecided if it feels better or worse yet. Let me choke on a few more food items today and I’ll let you all know! I figure that if I can swallow, I’m good! I would re-phrase that or take it out all together, but I’m keeping it in there for the fringe crowd. Spicing it up on a Friday with some edgy humor. Trying to grow a larger fan base. Oh snap! There it is!

Now I have to go drive to the airport!! What, wha…??? I know. It’s not funny and it wasn’t meant to be. I literally have to go and drive someone to the airport in like, 4 minutes, so I guess I better go now. Keep reading! Tell your friends! Post a comment! By the time I get home it will be socially acceptable to start drinking for the weekend! Later!

    Thanks for the Bday cake Cuz! I love chocolate cake with chocolate icing!

    Only one comment on the swallow…..isn’t that a bird that winters in Capistrano? If Amanda does not get this then she is not as demented as you and I.

    Cause Lisa, ya got to admit that the fact that you figured out that I meant masticate when I said macerate just goes to show ya that we are related….or at least we smoked the same brand of cigarettes once upon a time!

    Why Lorraine, I do believe those are, swallows. Thank you. I have included a link within the reply (if it works) to a wonderful site where you may obtain much more information! XO
    Let me try it with copy and paste…..ok…it worked either way. I may have to use this in my next next post. I do have lots of pictures of birds….

  3. Linda said,

    Wow Cuz… love a good challenge!! I wouldn’t be one of the 5 you spoke of? Well I am a subscriber now. Let’s do this ๐Ÿ™‚
    But you need to promise me that you won’t use big words like macerate, mandibles, masticate or masturbate…you’ll make my head spin and Webster will be my new besty.
    brb… I need to grab my coffee.

    • masnstevy said,

      Alright my other cuz! Thanks for reading AND commenting! I didn’t know you was out there!! (Also, you have to “like” stuff too now—I know, so needy!!) Anyway, I can’t promise the “no big words” because I do love to flex my large vocabulary! And besides where else can I talk fancy and uninterrupted??? This is the best platform for gabby people who think they have lots to say even when they really aren’t saying anything! Keep reading and maybe you will get a special category just for yourself too!! XO

      I like your avatar. Mine reminds me of cousin IT!

      Lisa: can we change our avatar? How does one do that? ๐Ÿ™‚

      • masnstevy said,

        Hmmm…not sure. I can change mine pretty easily, but I am not sure if commenters can. I know it’s randomly generated if you don’t have a wordpress one. I can search and see, but you’ve been pretty much finding things before I can even get back to you. I like your little purple guy, he looks like he’s dancing across the box. Every day I’m shuffling…….let’s see who gets that first!

  4. Lorraine said,

    Yay! Linda is here! Now I will have to step it up and “like” something! Commenting is so yesterday! ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Amanda a.k.a The Greatest Sister of All time! said,

    Birds?!? Where were there birds??? Seriously!! I guess my “Top Follower” title can now get handed over to Lorraine! I am so lost it ain’t even funny!

    • Lorraine said,

      Seriously Amanda!!? Maybe Lisa and I just……hear the birds in our heads! That would mean, dear cousin, that you are normal. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Lisa used swallow in her post and I asked it they were the birds that winter in Capistrano. She rolled with the loose connection then provided the link.

      I am hanging at this blog for the comic relief. And to see that our genes are a little scarey!

      • masnstevy said,

        I did not even think your bird reference was one bit weird or unusual. I was like, “oh yea!” Let me find something about that….The gene pool is scary cause it’s so small….we’re all crammed in thinking the same thoughts, even if some of us don’t get to the site as fast as others (I’m looking at you Amanda!) Stop doing kid stuff and mom stuff and check in here every hour! Then you won’t miss any of our advanced brain waves! Surfing in the gene pool!!

    • masnstevy said,

      Thanks for the reminder! I need to post that website AND include a picture of the birds I keep taking pictures of! I have LOTS! You will be thinking this went from a weather site to a bird watching site.

  6. Amanda a.k.a The Greatest Sister of All time! said,

    So I figured out how to “like” something, but I need my username and password. I don’t know it.

    • masnstevy said,

      Sorry I don’t know that kind of info. I am sure wordpress can retrieve it or at least let you reset. I am surprised that mother has not made one comment on all this. She must be really sick! (Although I talked to her yesterday and she is not that bad. The meds helped.) I’m sure she’ll join the party eventually.

      • Lorraine said,

        Come on Rita! Where are you?

        I did notice this week that Aunt Rita posted an answer to my comment on Lisa’s FB page from 2009! I am not making fun…..I just saying that we should not put too much pressure on Aunt Rita with all this computer stuff. After all she does keep me in the loop with funnies and political information!

        Love you Auntie Rita! ๐Ÿ™‚
