Even Our Cars Can Get Fancy

October 10, 2012 at 1:27 pm (For The Cure, Pink October) (, , , )

I hope Susie doesn’t mind that I put her license plate here. This site is not that mainstream or world wide so I think I will be ok. Plus it is on a car that drives around in public anyway and she must be proud, so…I will leave it at that. I saw my first Breast Cancer plate in the store parking lot but I wasn’t quick enough to get a picture as it was driving away. I didn’t even realize these were available. I felt kind of bummed, but figured at least I have my food stand pictures to go with. Exciting, I know. Then, lo and behold, I am dropping my daughter off at her friends house and there it was. My second chance. So there you go. A picture and a story! The gripping tale of how I captured the elusive BC auto tag. Don’t you feel lucky today? Now I really must B–C-ing myself off to work. I am going to apologize for that right now. But I am leaving it in. Later.

The In’s And Out’s Of Product Placement

October 9, 2012 at 11:56 pm (For The Cure, Pink October) (, , , , , )

Hoo–ahh I am funny. I am cheating a little by back dating this post for Tuesday but that’s the beauty of having your own media outlet. You control what the people see. And when. Well, don’t I just sound power crazy. I’m not. I’m just trying to hurry and I want my little calendar to the right to have a blue date every day. It’s nuts how these small things can make a difference. Or not. Personal demons and neurosis aside…we went shopping and of course I took pics of all the Breast Cancer displays. People in the store were kind of looking at me, probably wondering why the hell I would be taking pictures of food shelves and cardboard stands, but that’s ok. Anyway this is product I buy. They roll out the pink packaging once a year and we go for it. Looks pretty. Now let me see if I can post this and then get another one out before I leave for work…it’s always a crapshoot. Ha. I said crap. Nice ending huh? Classy. Later.

Nice Cell!

Thank you low census Monday and Columbus Day. I get to hang with my kids and they finished all their homework! Then we got to bowl, have dinner, watch movies and football and go to bed way too late when we all have to get up early tomorrow. From one, many. Goodnight all.

Sunday Afternoon With The Manning Brothers

October 7, 2012 at 4:33 pm (Football, For The Cure, Pink October) (, , , , )

NFL. A Crucial Catch. NY Giants and Eli Manning right now. Denver Broncos and Peyton in a few minutes. (Don’t worry Chicago–I’ll flip back and forth to see if the Bears can stay good.) But I’m sad that I had to miss the Pack and Clay today. Major Sad Face. (Or “Turtle Face”, I still need to post a pic of that for the uninitiated. Scroll down to see the new Fathead commercial with Mr. Matthews and then I dare you to post me a comment that says he is not the bomb.) I think I need to invest next year in the NFL Sunday Ticket. Football is good for everyone. It gets my house clean and the laundry done.  My kids have both abandoned me for other weekend activities but at least I don’t have to work tonight! And my sissy just said she is coming by to hang out so I need to wrap this up so I can go chat and start drinking in preparation for Football Night In America! Ha. Just kidding. There won’t be that much chatting. Later.

Cereal For The Cure

October 6, 2012 at 2:04 pm (For Mason, For Stevie, For The Cure, Pink October) (, , , , , )

Saturday morning! No work! Getting another post in for Pink October! Didn’t even realize I had bought the “pink” cereal. So there’s the front.

Here’s the back. This is part of the Save Lids To Save Lives campaign. Yogurt is expanding out to cereal boxes. And other General Mills products. I’m not endorsing any one company, charity organization, or food group. Well maybe the food group. Boxed food is my kind of cooking. Anyway, this is just putting info out into the world. You pick your cause and how you want to contribute.

And since it is Saturday and all my original plans got canceled, I think I might post some other stuff too. For fun. Plus it turned cold on us here in the Midwest. Summer is over. Just like that. Thursday afternoon 82 to Saturday morning 34. I took Mason to football practice and then sat in a quiet house, in the overcast living room, on the big couch in the corner, drinking coffee, reading random written materials and playing games on my phone. It was nice. I think I might go shower now and put on a clean set of comfy clothes and get ready for a night in. The girl is going to a friends house and the boy is going to homecoming. My job is to drive and pick up and take pictures. I will also prob update some of the feature pages to the right there. Every now and then I like to add a new pic or change some wording around. I haven’t posted any street money in awhile, or a NY coffee cup, or even a magazine collection upgrade. I’ve recently added nursing mags to the growing pile of “things I look at every day but never actually read”.

I must also throw in a quick side note of thanks and appreciation to my fabulous and tolerant BF who only complains a little bit at a time and lets me squirrel away crap like this without totally blowing a gasket. I got rid of all the End Of The World clippings today and three magazines so far! (I bought the BF a semi-serious, humorous mix of facts and fun, daily desk calendar counting down the days to the end of the world this year, and he brings them home for me periodically to read. Good material. I have some posts in the hopper dedicated to our last days on Earth. But time really is running out, and at the rate that I post, if the world does end in December, none of this will matter. We will all die never knowing what hilarity I had in store for us! Oh, the humanity!) Anyway…3 mags and the loose papers. This might be the weekend honey! (OCD is a disease. Hoarding is a mental disorder. Don’t judge.)

Alright the day is moving forward. Let me wrap this up and try to go for the record of two posts in a day. After I take care of kid and house business. Until later then, I leave you with my pink kids. They took this pic of themselves just goofing around, but it’s good. They look happy and healthy and it’s one of my favs now.

Friday. Pink And Lazy.

October 5, 2012 at 12:47 pm (For The Cure, Pink October) (, , , , )

Going with the old “stand-by” shots. There is a term for this in TV news and I cannot remember what it is called and I couldn’t find it on the internet.

Help me! If you know it, or want to do something researchy today, find it and comment it to me! It’s the running footage of people or things that plays behind the anchor person on the news when they are reading a story. A story that is general in nature. Like about losing weight, or a new product coming out, or gas prices. They play clips of pictures or video of overweight people walking down the street or someone standing in line or someone pumping gas at a gas station.

This footage has a name! You need to find it while I am at work and let me know!

That’s what this pink day is all about. Now get to work!

Let’s Go With Pink Noise Today

October 4, 2012 at 1:30 pm (For The Cure, Pink October) (, , , )

This is an old T-shirt, from my old job, from an old (?) company, that gave these out for free, and may or may not still be in business. I always liked the shirt. It’s made with good material, has nice size and was very pink at one point but became more tie-dye-pink looking as the years progressed. I like to drag it out when I need to wear pink for such an occasion as this month. When you are in nursing school, representing is always a good thing. Now I am a slave to my scrubs. One color. Not pink. But I can always wear something pink under them! Anyway, it’s today’s picture. Gotta go to work again. Later!

Warriors In Pink

October 3, 2012 at 12:42 pm (Big Animals, For The Cure, Pink October) (, , , )

This is kind of a lazy post today because I am really crunched for time, but it’s not nearly as lazy as the second pink elephant picture I was going to post. Different angle, different pic. That’s my philosophy. I also have some pink sky pics I took last night to throw up here, but those can be for tomorrow in case I can’t find anything cooler today while I am out at work and in the world. I plan on filling in the pink spaces with other stuff too. I have more ideas than just this one “Pink October” thing I am trying to start. But as you all know from reading this blog daily, weekly, whenever the computer skips to it accidentally while you are searching for something else…I have a small problem with consistency and carrying out a theme to the end without getting sidetracked by five or ten other themes. It’s almost happening right now while I am typing. Refocus. I really do have to go. Shower and work. Here’s that elephant picture anyway so I won’t be tempted to use it later. Later!

Pink Feet!

October 2, 2012 at 1:01 pm (For Stevie, For The Cure, Pink October) (, , , )

I hope you don’t mind, my beautiful little girl! This pic reminds me of the pink ribbon.  And I always liked this shot. These are good sturdy feet that will take you far! Be proud of everything that you are and that you will become! I know I am! Have to go work now! XO
