The good, the bad and the funny

I’ve got my upper GI thing in less than 10 hours.  I’m more nervous about this than I was about my hysterectomy.  Something about shoving tubes down my throat.

I’m not going to be able to do puggie Halloween cards this year.  Just not enough time or money in the budget.  But I WILL do puggy Christmas cards.  I’ve even already written a song to go along with them.

Did y’all see Amy Poehler’s rap about Sarah Palin on SNL on Saturday?  OMG one of the funniest things I’ve seen in a looooong time!

Here are the lyrics:

one two three

my name is sarah palin you all know me
vice president nominee of the gop
gonna need your vote in the next election
can i get a ‘what what’ from the senior section
mccain got experience, mccain got style
but don’t let him freak you out when he tries to smile
cause that smile be creepy
but when i be vp
all the leaders in the world gonna finally meet me

how’s it go eskimo
tell me what you know eskimo
how you feel eskimo
(ice cold)
tell me tell me what you feel eskimo
(super cold)

i’m jeremiah wright cause tonight i’m the preacha
i got a bookish look and you’re all hot for teacha
todd lookin fine on his snow machine
so hot boy gonna need a go between
in wasilla we just chill baby chilla
but when i see oil lets drill baby drilla

my country tis a thee
from my porch i can see
russia and such

all the mavericks in the house put your hands up
all the mavericks in the house put your hands up
all the plumbers in the house pull your pants up
all the plumbers in the house pull your pants up

when i say ‘obama’ you say ‘ayers’
obama. (ayers) obama (ayers)
i built me a bridge – it ain’t goin’ nowhere.

mccain, palin, gonna put the nail in the coffin
of the media elite
(she likes red meat)
shoot a mother-humpin moose, eight days of the week

[three gunshots]
now ya dead, now ya dead,
cause i’m an animal, and i’m bigger than you
holdin a shotgun walk in the pub
everybody party, we’re goin on a hunt
la la la la la la la la
[six gunshots]

yo i’m palin, i’m out!

R.I.P. Jorge

We are going on a big trip next week and we’re driving my car, the RAV4 Jorge, as it gets better gas mileage than CSP’s truck, Q-Tip.  Well before we hit the road, Jorge needed new tires, a tune up, oil change, his tags are due, and the state inspection is due.  So we’re talking over $1000 at least in maintenance.  And he has 90,500 miles on him.  Well then we saw the ads on tv where Toyota is doing 0% financing (on 36 months for the RAV4), something they have never done before.  CSP started talking a few weeks ago about how we might want to think about trading Jorge in since he’ll soon be needing a new timing belt.  Well it seems like the stars aligned for us because I’d like you to meet Blanca!  Blanca is a 2008 Toyota RAV4. Jorge served us well for 7 years but we just couldn’t pass up the great financing deals.  And let me tell you, the Toyota people were falling all over me to sell me this car.  I had 3 dealerships crunching numbers and fighting each other to get the best deal.  I was in there alone and I’d call home to CSP to run the numbers by him.  He’d say no and they’d get back to work.  Eventually we got them down to 3.9% for 60 months, a good bit for Jorge’s trade, and we paid $600 LESS than what we paid for Jorge 7 years ago!  Our payments are over $100 less a month than Jorge’s were (he’s been paid off since 2005).  Wooot!  By the end of the whole thing my sales lady was hugging me.  Now here comes the stars aligned part.  CSP cleaned out Jorge’s glove compartment and found the delivery sheet that I signed the day we bought Jorge.  It was dated 10/16/2001.  7 years to the day later and I was signing the delivery sheet for Blanca! 
It was sad leaving Jorge in the parking lot at the Toyota joint. He looked all forlorn. I’m hoping some nice college girl buys him and loves him.
I’d have told y’all about Blanca when we bought her last week but it was PhoBloDays and all.  She’s 14 inches longer than Jorge and now there’s plenty of room for child safety seats!  Come on home soon Ling Ling, Mama’s got the new car ready for ya!
