I kinda need to go to the store today. I have a list and everything. I let The Mister take my car. Yeah, so you should feel sad for me, because The Mister took my car. That’s only the beginning of my planned misfortune.

We’re also outta eggs, grits, the brown oatmeal, and the cereal I like to eat. Because of this lack of breakfast food, I am forced to eat unusual food for second breakfast. Oh, yeah, I had buttered toast and an orange for first breakfast, but that didn’t keep me full too long. So anyway, I hafta eat this salmon dip, which is totally disgusting, like someone whipped up cream cheese, smoked salmon, and green onion in a food processor. I don’t have a single bagel, so I had to spread it across some crusty old bread. It’s just awful. And there’s not enough for you, so don’t even ask.


And then, a pickle.

So yeah, I probably won’t take the minivan to the store, because after driving Bonnie Blue so long, driving the van feels like drivin a big rig. Yup. Poor me. Can’t go to the store. *sigh*

I only have one paper towel left and since I can’t clean anything with the twenty or so rags I own, and I can’t go anywhere to buy paper towels without my car, I am forced to sit here on the sofa here at home, braless, shoeless, wearing a dreadfully comfortable twenty-year-old sweatshirt, some flannel pants and Bubba’s old socks.


It’s way too cold to go work on the garden, but the weather is perfect for ordering seeds online, and well, will ya look at that? I’m dressed perfectly.

I have been workin on Mt Laundry, but I somehow managed to break the pump apparatus on my detergent. I broke it really well, I can tell, cause a bb came out in my hand. Anyway, I just don’t think I can manage to open that five-gallon bucket all by my lil ol self. Seems like that last load is all I can do until The Mister comes home.

I can’t run the vacuum. I wouldn’t want to wake our pets. Besides, I like to dust before I vacuum, and I can’t dust right now cause we’re outta Flonase.

I tell you, there are so many moments of despair. I’d cry about it, but this is our last box of Kleenex in this room.

So you see, his takin my car has simply ruined my entire day. It’s best I keep my spirits up with a good book and a nice cuppa tea. Sometimes reading just plumb wears me out, though. May need a nap to recover, or to write to stay awake.


Oh yeah, I’ll be doing the A-Z Challenge in April. There’s no theme to reveal. I didn’t even commit until yesterday, and I sure can’t be bothered to plan ahead. For this blog, it’s year number three of pantsin my way through. I’ve pantsed at least the last 38 years of my life.
So it will be another month of me and my randomnity, pantsin deliberately, how I do.
Nonsense is right there in my title, Duh!
There’ll be lotsa made up words, average photography, stories you wish you’d never been told, a paradox of judgmental rants and sunshine-y anecdotes, prolly with some irreverence and some unexpected insights, and of course, with moments of humor, doors, and sheer panic.
Join me in this madness?

What great plans do you have for the day?

    My poor poor baby. Why that cad. Taking your car and leaving you stranded. I hope you have some wine for when the tea becomes a bore. I went to the Big Box store to pick up some Keurig Descaler I ordered. While there I picked up a spiffy summer hat and some cold half priced fried chicken from their deli. Eight pieces for $2.99. Oh and an Almond Joy to eat on the ride home. I am really falling in love with Trader Joe’s. Hope your Bonnie Blue is returned to you safely. I assume pantsin is another way of saying by the skin of your teeth. How do you like your grits? I like to make up cornmeal mush and fry it up. What are your thoughts on basted eggs?

      I do have some wine, if it gets too bad, I even have liquor! 😛
      I love a candy bar on the way home — more a Mounds girl myself, or maybe a Twix.
      Pantsin is a writer’s term, like flyin by the seat of one’s pants. I’m a pantser.
      I like grits with butter and maple syrup. I also like them with butter and salt, butter and sugar, and of course, with shrimp and green onions — I just, you know what? I just like grits.
      Other than basting eggs in the bacon grease for sunnyside up, I can’t say I’ve had basted eggs. I don’t think. I like eggs even more than I like grits, so there’s no wrong way, cept maybe those 100 year old eggs. HORK!

        That is phrase I was trying to remember. “Flying by the seat of one’s pants.” I like my grits savory. With the aforementioned shrimp etc.Or with a bit of butter and some Crystal Hot Sauce. That is what I meant about basted egg. Fry ’em in a puddle of hot grease or butter and pour some over ’til the white sets. You are fun to talk food with. Have a good day.

    Your Bonnie Blue has been returned to you safe and sound, and early I might add. Feel free to knock out the perilous dilemmas that plagued you prior to my early arrival. If I had only known. Thank the gods there was good coffee and creamer to console you.

    Joey, I missed my doses of Joey. This was the perfect one to get myself back into visiting. I don’t do this on purpose, my data runs out as the month progresses. Then I have a long day at work, my oldest daughter calls and asks me to go to Advance Auto to use my discount, my oldest son has a double meal on St. Patrick’s day, well you can just imagine my days. I made it to the library twice in two weeks. Yikes! Am I still a friend welcome to drop by, unannounced? Smiles, Robin
    I absolutely think that the detergent is not meant to work today, the laundry pile “Mt Laundry” was such a funny label, not meant to be tackled. The tissue, towels, food, and eating leftovers all had me chuckling. You are too funny, dear. ❤

      You are always welcome! xo
      I ended up doing the laundry. The Mister came home early and got my bucket open, sooooo…I even went to the store. But it was otherwise a relaxing sorta day.
      Sounds like you had a crazy busy day or even week! Whoa!

    I thought you had me at planned misfortune, but then I got to Mt. Laundry. hahahahaha. You are a damn humorist and should be making money being one. I don’t know how one goes about doing that.

    Good luck for the A to Z Challenge! And stay fed and hydrated 😛 Don’t run out of yummy food lest you have to survive on bread and salmon dip. The challenge demands decadence! Oh… maybe desserts can be your theme?


  16. I loved this! It fits so well with how my days are usually spent. I am looking forward to April.

    I recently stayed at a Holiday Inn so I’ve got that going for me! I would recommend the Michigan Bulb Company for ordering seeds online, but I have a feeling since you are Joey the ninja you already know about this treasure!
