Random Housekeeping

Sorry that I do not have a Forgotten Friday book today. It's been a little too chaotic for me to do anything overly substantive. So today is some random housekeeping notes. First of all, I noticed that my blogroll has been a little off lately. I've got lots of blogs I've been visiting that aren't even on my sidebar and some links that have gone bye bye for some reason. If you would like some linky love, please drop your linky to me.

FYI - I have asked Da Man to provide a guest post and put down the challenge that he couldn't be half as funny as I am. To which he responded that he is thinking of a post on "Things you don't (want to) know about Ello." But he is lazy and I think it will take him a year, if ever, to actually write the post. For example, we had broken ceramic tiles on the kitchen floor that every single one of us kept cutting our feet on except for Da Man whose troll like leather feet can't be penetrated by anything but athlete's foot. He wouldn't let me hire a handyman to fix it because he was too cheap and he kept putting it off and putting it off until a year passed and I threatened to take all ten of his fishing rods and reels and run them over with my van a couple of times. A year and two months from when the first tile broke, we finally got new tiles in our kitchen. So am I worried that he will tell you all my dirty little secrets? Puh-lease.

So have you noticed I am still reSTRAINING myself from posting anything on the subject of the last post's bet. I am MOVED by everyone's bets on how long it will take to break me. BUT I am a Taurus and as all people know about the bull, we are very stubborn and have great CONSTITUTIONALS. It is too bad because Youngest told me the funniest story which I cannot share with you. Too bad. Hey, GAS is so expensive these days, huh?

Link me? *Bambi eyes*

Oh, and maybe you could answer a question for me. What was it again that Bambi does in the woods?

Course I'll link you!!!!

Bambi frolics in the woods with his little skunky friend Flower.

But did you hear the joke about the bear and the rabbit? Oh darn, I can't tell it. heh heh!

Florinda said...

I put your blog in my Google Reader feeds a few weeks ago, so I'm reading you all the time. If you'd like to toss a link my way, I won't say no (and I will reciprocate)!

pacatrue said...

Uh, I think I know what sort of GAS you were really referring to. You've lost the bet one post later.

Case closed.

Ello said...

Florinda - you got it! I shall link you in the morning!

Paca - what in the world are you talking about? Gas is $3.75 a gallon. Sheer outrageousness at the pump! What else could I possibly mean?

Case continued for failure of prosecution to provide adequate evidence. And paca is held in contempt for unfounded accusations. His punishment is to make homemade mochi and send it to me!

Oh this is going to be fun! Let me count the ways Ello will manage to indirectly allude to bodily functions while maintaining her absolute innocence :)

I say we start another betting pool. Put me in for 25 questionable references.

Kathi430 said...

Oh I'd LOVE a link! I've already got you linked (and blogged about how funny you are).

Nah, that's not sucking up.

Really.

:)

Absolute Vanilla (& Atyllah) said...

No wait, said one Taurus to the other, we are not stubborn, we are determined. There's a difference!
;-)

Ello said...

Lisa and JJ - Me indirectly allude... to what pray tell? But JJ - only 25? What a STINKER! Don't you think that I could CUT LOOSE and RIP out some goodies so quickly that it will make your hair stand up from a PASSING WIND. I may be SILENT on this subject for now BUT I have DEADLY ways. I mean I don't want to TOOT my own horn BUT I have many BACKDOOR ways to TRUMPET my sneaky ways.

Kathi - you've got it!

Vanilla - That's right I'm determined not to BREAK this WIN that I will have over this bet.

Why are men hardwired to put things off like that? For two months now, my husband has told me he's going to get rid of the unused desk in my office so I can have more room. It's still sitting there.

Precie said...

HAHAHA! HOHOHO!

Patti said...

that last one SLIPPED right out...

Bernita said...

So you're married to one of those too, huh?

JaneyV said...

Ah shit! Poo, fart, twosies, cut the cheese, pull my finger, CRAP!
I'm related to three Taurus women - she can hold out till hell freezes over folks!

But please don't!

Charles Gramlich said...

Did you hear the one about Ello and the pooper scooper?

No?

Ello, why don't you tell it.

The Anti-Wife said...

You've already lost the bet! Don't try any legal mumbo-jumbo on us. You might as well just say poop and fart. Eventually you'll run out of ways to allude to them.
YOU LOSE!

March to the Sea said...

off subject..have a wonderful mothers day!!

-march

J. L. Krueger said...

Ell,

I think anti-wife is right...not-so-oblique references leave the meaning quite clear. Trying to SQUEEZE that one past us eh? ;)

Mom In Scrubs said...

Are you married to my husband? Is that where he goes when I'm away? They've GOT to be the same man.

(bouncing up and down in my chair with my hand in the air)

ooh!ooh!ooh! Link me! Link me!

I already linked YOU...
