Little Bit O' Nothin'

Nothin' from nothin' is nothin'.
Something from nothing is miraculous.
Something from something is probably something special.
Nothin' from somethin' is damned depressin'.




I've never had allergies before, but I think I have them now. I've been coughing and sneezing for several days. I've had a rash or hives or something -- all I know is it's little red itchy bumps -- on my chest, and now it's spread to my back. That sounds just terribly attractive, doesn't it? Hoochie-mama.

Maybe it is hives, because I'm so annoyed with my mother lately. Sometimes I get so tired of dealing with her crap. Sometimes I wish I had the chutzpah to just tell her, "Stop it and act like you have some sense!" You know what they say about balls, though: "Balls!" said the queen. "If I had 'em, I'd be king."

I suppose it's just easier (and I am notorious for preferring the easy route) to let it go in one ear and out the other than to actually try to address the problem with her. Easier on the surface, anyway. When it gives me headaches and hives, clearly it's sinking in deeper than my ear.

TWISTED LINGUISTICS

If you has said - Then you is wrong.

ellicited - Ellie Mae got a ticket. No, not really; it's this thing you can do that's illegal in 28 states.

not in the busines to loose money - A tight money market is better.

old fasion - An outdated thermonuclear technique.

we wernt - That's either a lisper saying they learned something, or...

From our editor:

brousing - When carousing results in a beating.


I'm going to stop taking pictures. They always make me look 10 pounds plumper. LOL.

Have you been exposed to something new?
clothes, pillows? different detergent or soap, deoderant, etc.
working in the garden?
something new in the workplace?
if not it could very well be your reaction to your mother.
I've heard more and more adult children having this kind of trouble with one of their parents.
You will always be her little girl and she will always know more and what's best for you, so that will never change.
As they get older they tend to regress and you become the parent with one exception they won't listen.
I finally reached the breaking point at one time and didn't speak to my mom for 7 years. I swore I would never talk to her again.
Then a situation with my dad brought us back together again.
It was a slow process but we eventually grew to trust each other again and be totally honest with one another.

I wish you the best in resolving this issue with your mom.

Please don't stop posting pictures, I enjoy them very much and you don't look 10lbs plumper in the least.

me DISTURBED?? here kitty kitty

Kanrei said...

The red bumbs are called nipples. They are normal and you should have been aware of them well before today. I suppose we each develop at different paces. =D

I wish I could offer advice, but I have been suffering my entire life and have yet to find a cure. If you find one, let me know.

Serena Joy said...

I am using a new detergent, TC, but I've been using it for about two months now. I don't work in gardens; gardens call the Plant Police when they see me coming. I think it probably is just nerves. There's been a lot going on. Rather than have nervous breakdowns, I get hives and stuff. LOL. OK, I'll keep doing candids every now and then, but they DO make me look fat as a heifer.:-)

Well, geez, Kan -- how many nipples are you supposed to have? I would have thought more than 4 and you'd look like a freak. I don't think this is normal. I'm going to pick up some Benadryl or something today for the allergy symptoms. What do you take for yours? As for the bumpies, I think it's time for Epsom Salts baths and plenty of lotion.

Sounds about right.

You're allergic to the husband. Cure-Take a divorce and call me in the morning. LOL
Seriously, consider what TC said, it may be something new in your house. Or you have the chicken pox. LOL

Serena Joy said...

Well, hell, Roxan, I already knew about THAT allergy. There's a cure, but it carries jail time. LOL.

I'm trying to think of what else I've changed brands of lately. I have some new "dainties" which, come to think of it, is where the bumpies are. Do you think I'm allergic to my unmentionables?! I know I don't have chickenpox; had that when I was about 6.

littlebirdblue said...

Are you fishing for compliments? Beacause this is crazy-talk. You're one skinny-minnie, and hot to boot.

Top cat said...

oh go ahead and mention your unmentionables.:)

check every new thing you have including detergent to see if it was made in China or not. lol
tc

Serena Joy said...

Nuh-uh, LBB, just saying the camera really does add 10 lbs. I think it looks weird. Little chickies your age are hot, babe; not ladies of a certain age.:)

Okay, TC -- un-men-tion-ables.:-)

What is it with all these additive problems coming out of China? I'll look and see where my detergent came from.

Charles said...

unmentionables (un-men-tion-ables)n.
Those that are capable of being unmentioned.

Charles said...

When I was a teen(ages ago), I had a similar problem with red bumps. My problem was caused by a detergent called 'Drive.' "Drive, with enzymes," was the slogan. Enzymes that were eating my arse up. Technology that obviously ate itself out of business.

Trée said...

SJ, I got balls but I'm still not king. :-D

Please accept my apologies, but your post, for whatever odd strange reason, made me laugh, with you, not at you. :-D

Let me see if I can find a pillow that can handle both mother crap and allergies. Don't hold your breath. ;-)

Serena Joy said...

Thank you for the clarification of that which must not be mentioned, Charles. LOL.:-) I'll check the label and make sure there are no enzymes in my detergent. I'd hate for something like that to eat up my butt.

I'm still queen, though, Trée.:) My purpose is pretty much ALWAYS to make somebody laugh so, thanks to you, I can say I did something right today.

Oh, dear, I thought the magic pillow could handle just about anything. Can you maybe find me some stronger mojo?

tfg said...

You don't look fat to me. I would suggest that you do something about the multi-nippularity, though.

Serena Joy said...

Oh, thank goodness, T.:-) Now, what do you suggest for the multiple bumps problem?

Trée said...

Stronger Mojo? I've been waiting for you to ask. I've got your Mojo. ;-D

Serena Joy said...

Now I'm asking. Could I have it, please?

Trée said...

Never been able to resist a woman who says "please." My special mojo is yours and maybe a magic pillow or two for good measure. :-)

Charles said...

My question then is being unmentioned something that can only not happen, or is it something that can happen after the mention?

Charles said...

Ok, took your test. What the heck is wrong with me? I don't test like the rest of you.

Your dreams seem to show that you're a very well adjusted and happy person.

Overall, you are very content in your life.

You tend to be a very productive thinker.

You have a very vivid imagination and a rich creative mind.

tfg said...

Well, I've never had to deal with multi-nipularity before. Nevertheless, I strongly suggest a hot bath followed by a lengthy, full- body massage. Obviously, this should be performed by a qualified individual, preferably one with a squarish blue head.

Serena Joy said...

Trée, if you're sending a magic pillow AND strong mojo, I might not be able to handle the power. Why, I could become ... king.:-)

Charles, I think it's sort of along the lines of what Descartes said. Therefore, if it is mentioned, it exists and, once it exists, anything can happen. Hey, what's wrong with the way you tested? You came out very well!

I don't know, T -- I've never had a massage from a square-headed blue person. If you think it'll cure the heebie-jeebie hives, though, I'm game.:-)

G-Man said...

God, whats worse than Summertime Hives?
Other than an STD...Nada!
You hang in there and try to relax...

And the pics?
You would see begging and groveling and pleading of Biblical Proportions for their return...
10#'s ? Hahahaha...No one is looking at that non-sense, your always beautiful smile, overshadows all else!!!
Carry On....xoxoxox

Serena Joy said...

LOL, Galen. Ain't no cure for the summertime blues, but there does appear to be hope for the hives. I'll try your mantra, see if I can't reeeee-lax a little.:-)

tfg said...

Trust me, I'm never wrong about these things.

Serena Joy said...

I trust you, T. Let the cure begin.:-)

puerileuwaite said...

Well, you have to do SOMETHING about those extra bumps, as they will play havoc with my braille method of woman identification.

Serena Joy said...

Puggy, if you have another cure to recommend, please pass it along. I'm itching to death here, plus I'd hate to be the one to screw up your Braille.:-)

Hale McKay said...

Now, if as kanrei suggested the red bumps on your back are nipples - er - ah - may i have the next dance?

Ahem! Now where was I? I forgot - Something, not sure what, distracted me.

Oh yeah, you do NOT look fat in your pictures. You look just fine to me.

Hale McKay said...

Oh yeah ...
"Bush and the Beanstalk" is completed and posted - in 3 parts.

Serena Joy said...

LOL, Mike. What is all this fascination with extra doohickeys? I think we ought to be checking out Kan. He's the one who brought it up. He must have seen them somewhere. Was it in his mirror? This bears further investigation.

But I digress. Sure, you can have the next dance.:)

The quiz looks like a conflicted mess to me.

..."It's gonna take an ocean...Of Calomine Lotion"!!!

Serena, I feel so bad for you, that I'm getting a bit of a sympathy itch here...
Hope your somewhat better...xoxoxoxox

Serena Joy said...

CD, your deadpan delivery of deadly funny one-liners always just slays me.:-)

Careful with that sympathy itch, g-man. It spreads. I'm actually looking/feeling better. That could be because I lathered myself up last night with everything in my anti-itch arsenal. I went to bed looking like a greased pig.:)
