I hope you all had a great weekend! Ours was pretty uneventful. We (and by “we”, I mean Bebe, Big Sir, and myself) mostly stayed indoors due to the weather. Fortunately, the heat didn’t bother me because I am so cool. Yea, I went there. But the heat, the rain, and the bugs? Yuck. It was just a gross weekend and I did not enjoy that part at all. Speaking of things I didn’t enjoy, I did have the displeasure of developing a most painful Apthous Ulcer though. It’s in your mouth- Google it. Let me just say that if you’ve never experienced such a thing, COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS. Oh my dear sweet pickles. It is so painful. So much so, that I went to the dentist first thing this AM because I was certain that A) I had an abcessed tooth B) I had a bone infection or C) a disease-carrying brown recluse climbed into my mouth while I slept and bit me in the gum causing advanced stages of periodontal necrosis leading to painful decay of my gums, rendering them helpless and unable to support the teeth that adhere to them, which would soon cause them to all fall out, leaving me with no choice but to get new pearly white veneers and I got all excited about it because I really want them, but in hindsight, looking back at all my bad luck I would probably not even get the nice veneers, but rather the Hillary Duff teeth and well, we all know how that turned out. My money was on C, but Dr. Dentist was not convinced, after all, he has not seen “Arachnophobia” so I am sure he is unaware of what these crafty little bugs are capable of. After some assurance that I would maintain my ability to eat corn on the cob, I relaxed a little and because I was a work-in, I had plenty of time to sit and think of some more facts that I thought I’d share.
26- I LOVE going to the dentist. Not the drive, but the actual visit. The gas, the compressed air, the novacaine, the drilling, the water spout and THE SUCTION- the whole 9 yards. Sounds crazy, but I do. I love getting my teeth cleaned and am not fazed at all by major dental work- I LIKE it.
27- I have “texture” issues with food. Well, grilled chicken to be more specific and I cannot eat it most of the time. It’s a coin toss as to whether I will throw up or not.
28- What this world needs is Jesus, Jesus…. Pinelakers, can I get a witness?!
29- I was a victim of physical, emotional and mental abuse during a 6 year relationship. That guy may be reading this blog now and to him I say “I forgive you and I also forget you- so never ever consider contacting me again- I don’t want to be your real life friend or your facebook friend or your myspace friend. Give.it.up.chief.” To the rest of you I say, if you’ve ever questioned why people just don’t leave, I can tell you now that it is not that easy.
30- I am an excellent marksman and can probably shoot a pistol/rifle/gat (when it's gang-related) better than you, but that fact has no direct relation to #29. No seriously, I didn’t even plan that.
31- If we even speak about the topic of yawing, I will yawn. If I see an animal yawn, I will yawn. You can just pretend to yawn and I will yawn. I kid you not, I am yawning right now just typing about yawning. I can’t help it. I’m a yawner.
32- MP and I have been lost in the mountains of Colorado while elk hunting and were actually found by Search and Rescue. That trip alone is worthy of its own blog entry and will debut soon- I promise.
33- I am a history nerd. Do you hear me? NERD. I am obsessed with all things history. In fact, the MS Agriculture Museum is one of my most favorite places in MS and the Military Park in Vicksburg is the other.
34- I am a firm believer that you should always, ALWAYS check the stalls before saying anything about anyone. Just sayin’
35- I do not believe in horoscopes and can not, for the life of me, understand why people do. First of all, let’s take my horoscope for today as an example. It says:
(October 23 - November 21)You could meet someone new and adorable. Lucky numbers: 3, 11, 23, 25, 28, 36
Now, do you REALLY believe that on June 29, 2009, every Scorpio on the planet is going to win the lottery by playing 3, 11, 23, 25, 28, & 36? Really? Think about it. That doesn’t even make sense. Oh, but that part about meeting someone “new and adorable?” It’s totally true. Hi. My friends call me CP. You can call me Ms. Jackson, if you’re nasty.

Christy Hill Puckett is hey you...in the gray Maxima, yea, contrary to popular belief, blinkers are for everyone. They do not discriminate. You should try it sometime, really. Also, it is a round about, not a crop circle. It does not require studying. It's your basic elementary shape that even my 3 yo has mastered. And she doesn't drive.
