Snippety snippets


Just a few things I would like to mention…

Toad’s haircut

Remember Toad?


She’s still the happiest little Piggy Toad on the planet.

Speaking of “Toad”

I saw this dead, flattened frog in the parking lot at work.  I took a picture of it.  I don’t know why.

The fact that I noticed this, photographed it, and am now broadcasting it to the whole wide world all of a sudden makes me feel all kinds of awkward.

“Glass & Wood”

Allie writes such good words.

There are some things I need to let go of – the broken AND the good.

I’m trying.

Jon licks the wound

I used to believe Heather B. Armstrong to be the funniest person on the internet.

But then Jon went and licked the wound.

And just like that, the queen was dethroned.

(I know – this was almost a year ago.  But I still think about it all the time, and still LOL out loud.  It goes like this: LOLOL.)

Mark and John are here!

Also, Bruce!  But he wasn’t in the picture.

These men are the greatest.  Seriously.  They’re totally a big deal, but they still treat me like I’M the big deal – even though my hair looked COMPLETELY FLAT on top.  Horizontal.  Kansan.  I could balance an egg on that noggin.  Someone get this girl a teasing comb, stat.

And last, but most certainly not least…

I am signed up for a seminar tonight called Sex, Lies, and Rattlesnakes.  This is my own special way of “getting out there” – so don’t judge me, people.  I might wind up sucking the poisonous snake venom from your leg someday.

    The flat frog is definitely a nice touch to any blog entry. Enjoy learning about the mating habits of rattlesnakes. You never know when you might need that knowledge while climbing a mountain (or playing trivia).

    I sure do enjoy snippets from your mind, AFP.

    Holy moly, I’m totally buying a copy of Brain Rules!!

    There was a dead, flattened frog in our driveway today! Coincidence? I think not.

    And no offense to Heather or Jon, but YOU are the funniest person on the internet. Period.

    oh my gosh that frog is disgusting!!!,
    though it does look similar to the one I thought I disposaled that’d been living in your coffee mug.
