RTT: Chicken Knows Best

Hello all! It's my first RTT of 2012! Can you believe it? Me neither. I actually had to look at the calendar to make sure it was Tuesday. Monday holidays always confuse me.


*The Girl Scout Cookie Cabal is out in full force again.  You can't walk 20 feet without passing one of their tables laden with delicious cookies.  The Thin Mints call me.  Evil Girl Scouts.

*I wonder why the GS sell cookies in Jan.  Don't they know everyone just made New Year's resolutions to lose weight and get in shape?  I think GS cookies are the reason NY resolutions last an average of 2-3 weeks.

 *BTW, I did not make a NY resolution.  I figure why make one when I'm just going to break it in a few weeks?  By not making one I save myself the senseless guilt.

*Han Solo loves this Chicken Knows Best commercial that plays on AFN. I have no idea why, but any time it comes on he starts bouncing and laughing. Watch it and tell me if you think it's funny.

*Here's a tip for you, free of charge.  If you're using industrial strength adhesive, especially one that requires a spraying of water to set, do not get it on your hands.  Soap and water will not get it off, and you may end up using something like, the oh so skin friendly, CLR to get it off.  You're welcome.

*My very good friend Michele Feltman Strider, author of Homecoming, has written another book which I am lucky enough to get to pre-read and edit/proof for her.  She's hoping to have it out this spring.  When she does, I'll let you know.  It's quite good.  Just the right balance of Southern stereotype (which I actually happen to know are not stereotypes), food, raunchiness, and wit.

*I'm not an incredibly political person, but the amount of money spent running for office makes me mad.  What a ridiculous waste.

*Indy hears lie detector on TV and asked me what it was.  I explained and he quickly said "They should have used that on Casey Anthony."  He really pays attention to what's going on in the world.  He loves to watch the news.

*Me:  My mom doesn't think Johnny Depp is attractive!
James Bond:  What?
Me:  It's true.
James Bond:  Hell, even I think Johnny Depp is attractive.
Indy:  You know Mom would leave your for Johnny Depp, right?
James Bond:  Yeah, I know.
Indy:  Just so you're clear.

*Today's lunch consisted of cheese, crackers and grapes.  If only I could have uncorked a bottle of wine.  Somehow that seemed wrong, you  know, being home with a baby and a 9 year old.  Stupid parenting.

 *I don't have a funny sign today because this pic cracked me up so hard I had to share it with you.

I wish you all a happy RTT.  Click on Stacy's blog to read other RTT's and link up your own.

Oh, and I'm branching out and linking up to Talk to Us Tuesday.  I figure, why not?

I somehow managed not to eat any GS cookies the last go-round and will try my hardest to avoid them this time. Not that I don't totally want to down an entire box of Thin mints RIGHT NOW...

Heather's Happenings said...

I will have to avoid those evil little girl scouts when I am out. I have to lose weight in 3 months or my Dr. will not be happy with me.

OMG that picture of the funny.

Toni said...

The conversation about Johnny Depp is excellent. Haha. I love it!

Happy Tuesday!

Yeah, what's up with those Girl Scouts? lol I am ALWAYS trying to diet when they deliver them. Just a hint...don't freeze the Thin Mints to keep from eating the. They are actually better! Great rant!...hugs...Debbie

VandyJ said...

Loved Homecoming so I'm looking forward to the next book.
The elections annoy me too. For oh so many reasons.

Impulsive Addict said...

Hey....there is another confessions blog person! I must go check her out.

Girl scout cookies are the devil. I love all of them except one. I may buy some to stick in the freezer to celebrate my weight loss in 6 months.

I'm completely with you on the political money. So stupid.

Welcome to TTUT! Thanks for linking up with us!

I've never liked GS cookies. Call me crazy but I think they are just gross.

Stacy Uncorked said...

For some reason Girl Scout cookies aren't going to be available in our area until mid-February...I haven't decided if that's a good thing or a bad thing yet. ;)

I'm with you - I stopped making New Year resolutions a few years ago...I always seemed to be setting myself up for failure, and decided that wasn't a good way to start a new year. :)

That Chicken Knows Best commercial is HI-Larious!! As is that fake baby!

Princess Nagger and I both swoon over Johnny Depp.

Seems like it should be a crime to have a lunch of cheese, crackers and grapes with no wine. ;)

I love Johnny Depp!! (even when he looks like he hasn't bathed in a month.)

Amy said...

Ah I didn't even think about GS cookie season starting. You're totally right that this is the reason for all resolutions failing. Bad GS cookies!

insomnia said...

I have avoided the GS cookies so far.
Love the pic of the baby hangin in the care window!

Becca said...

We have avoided GS cookies for long I can say that is who knows?

Lady Goo Goo Gaga said...

After I eat all the GC cookies, I will then start my diet to burn off the 20 lbs I start gaining at Halloween.....

Michele Feltman Strider said...

I think I'm in love with Chicken Knows Best.

And VandyJ is awesome -- great blog author!
