RTT: Rock the Casbah


*The title of this post has nothing to do with the post itself. It's just RANDOM! Though I dare you not to sing that song when you hear it on the radio. Or in your head just now. You're welcome.

*Speaking of music (weren't we?), I meant to mention last week that I hope Sir Paul McCartney is happy with his new bride. I guess he just "need[s] somebody to love." Though I hoped he learned his lesson the last time and didn't pick "just anybody."

*I may not crack you up, but I sure crack myself up.

*Anyone know what happens when, in England, a couple who has a title through the man gets divorced? Does she lose her "Lady" title? I'm thinking of Sir Paul and his previous wife. If you know the answer, leave me a comment or shoot me an email. I'm sure I could do some research and find out, but I'm too lazy for that.

*Clearly being pregnant affected my alcohol tolerance level.  James Bond and I cracked open a bottle of 2007 LaCave Gros Manseng wine (made with muscat grapes-sweet, fruity and freaking delicious!) and 2 glasses made me slightly tipsy!  WHAT???  Clearly I need to up my wine consumption.  In the name of upping my tolerance.  Yeah, sure.

*Han Solo was 6 weeks old yesterday!  Holy crap! Where are the days going???  BTW, he is now 8lbs 1oz and 22" long.  My baby is growing!!!!

*Indy graduated from the lower level of Cub Scouting and will be a WEBELOS next year.    OMG, he's not a baby anymore!  He was so excited, especially when then put the "traditional" face paint on him before he crossed the bridge.  Seriously, they cross a real bridge used just for graduations.  WEBELOS wear a different uniform from the other Cub Scouts, and also different from the Boy Scouts.  I think this level is just a ply from the BSA to get more money out of us.

*Indy and James Bond were supposed to go camping with the Scouts this coming weekend, but because of the whole killing of OBL, the Scouts cancelled it due to the "increased terrorism thread" to Americans in Europe.  You see how bad OBL was???  Even in death he's screwing things up.  How evil are you when you mess with the Boy Scouts?  Bastard.

*Indy was bummed about not going camping, so I went to the USO to tour some of the Rhein River castles instead.  I actually booked just the 2 of us because he's gotten far less attention than he's used to from me since Han Solo came along (though still he gets far more than many kids do) and I thought it would be good to have a day that was just the 2 of us.  James Bond is going to stay home with Han Solo and do...whatever.  Indy is very excited.

*Why is John McCain in Pakistan trying to sooth their ruffled feathers?  It doesn't fit with his "rogue" politician ways.  Personally, I think he needs to tell them to suck it.

*When I was typing "politician" I accidentally typed "plotitician."  That is genius!

*You all know how I feel about Angelina Jolie, right? Yeah, you do. So, WHY then does she have to go and do really cool stuff that I have to respect her for?  Damn it all.  This past week she was at Ramstein AFB and the Landstuhl hospital meeting with wounded service members.  I know she does a lot of good things, but this one hits close to home for me and makes it harder to dislike her and hold my never ending grudge for being a home wrecker AND more importantly for kissing Johnny Depp.  Oh, I still dislike her, don't get me wrong, it's just HARDER.

*It's depressing to hear on the news that the Morganza spillway hasn't been opened in "nearly 40 years" and then realize that the last time it was opened was the year I was born.

*Arnold has a love child.  Huh.  I feel like I should be surprised by this, but somehow...I'm not.  Plotiticians!

*Maybe Arnold should have taken this advice:

*And just in case it left your head while reading this post, I'll leave you with this:

Sharia don't like it,
Rockin' the Casbah,
Rock the Casbah
Sharia don't like it,
Rockin' the Casbah,
Rock the Casbah

I was kind of disappointed to find out about Arnold and Maria splitting; he wasn't always a politician so I didn't think he was so bad. Plus, the commercials he's on for California totally sell me on that state!

Favorite -> Plotitician

I love how this Arnold story is all over and NO ONE is surprised! lol

I love that you and Indy are going to spend the day together! That will be great! Have fun!

Happy Tuesday!

Have fun on your you and Indy day. Sounds like a good time.

Raven said...

That's funny that you don't like Angelina Jolie, cuz I really don't like Jennifer Aniston and I like Angelina and Brad together so much more. They both do so much to make this world a better place, I think it's awesome. Don't hate me. :D

Have fun with Indy!

Yes, definitely must up the wine consumption. For sure.

Happy RTT!

Totally agree re: Angelina Jolie, I'm sure any good deed she does is only to make up for some pure evil she's previously done (like kissing my boyfriend Johnny Depp)

And John McCain? Yeah, he and everyone else needs to tell them to suck it. And pull funding. So there.

Sorry the kiddo got screwed out of the camping trip. UBL's evilness knows no bounds, even after the sucker is dead!

On that note, happy RTT. :)

I am totally singing Rocking the Casbah in my head right now...Princess Nagger is probably thankful I'm not singing it out loud. ;)

I had to Google the title thing, because you got me curious...I guess what they do is instead of calling her "Lady So-and So", they put her Christian name in front, calling her "Mary, Lady So-and So" instead...apparently putting her name at the front distinguishes her from subsequent wives... ;) But she apparently doesn't completely lose the "Lady" title.

*whew!* Apparently I'm going to fill up your comment section with nonsense! :)

I had the same issue with alcohol tolerance level reducing after being pregnant - and sweet, fruity, freaking delicious wine is right up my alley! That's the kind of wine I make - too bad overseas shipping is so damn expensive, I'd send you a bottle or three to help with your tolerance level. :)

DON'T BLINK! They grow too freakin' fast!

OK, I'm done...for now! ;) Thanks for rockin' the random rebellion with me! :)

Fun, Rain, DaGeDar and Legendary People - RTT Rebel

Oh you are SO genius! Made me laugh from beginning to end. NO ONE has posted that song to Facebook yet - I get to be FIRST ofr my friends and it is all thanks to you!!! YAY! :-D

SweetHome said...

Bahahahahaha! Your RTTs always make me laugh out loud from beginning to end. And thanks by the way for the Clash have to go listen to it since it IS stuck in my head!

family of 4 on the move! said...

You had me rolling until you got to the wine part..I can totally help you with that problem btw! ( me!) lol

Now I am totally curious myself about if they keep their title. I do believe I had heard though that they do keep it unless they remarry and even if the man remarries it is still their title. Ok so I think that I got that off of New York housewives and the Countess said it so take it with a grain of salt!! Haha looove that show!!
