When I reach for MY 40...



When I reach for my forty, it's a tub of Tribe of Two Sheiks 40 Spices Hummus!

Terrel and I are all about some Greek / Lebanese food (call it what you will, it's just GQC). I've actually learned how to cook a little Greek-anese at home. Yesterday, we were in the kitchen making chicken and hummus pitas and we were crackin' each other up over the Tribe 40 Spices hummus that I get from the market. (Trust me, just go out and buy it, it's too much trouble to make: blend blend blend blend...taste...blend blend blend--You can have it!) It was so side-splittingly hilarious, that I thought it worthy to share with you all.

Other funnies: This is an actual conversation direct from our home to your ears. Seriously, if they did a Newlyweds 2 at our house, I could give Jessica a run for her money, and I don't even have the blonde hair to blame it on!

Sarah: Seriously, you are just PARAnormal!
Terrel: I'm a ghost?
Sarah: No, PARA-normal--outside the norm. You need to study your suffixes!
Terrel: You mean prefixes. A suffix would be something like -ful.
Sarah: Which is a unit of measurement!***

***Ever since an all out Scattagories battle royale that took place between Terrel and myself in early March, I have maintained that the suffix -ful would be an appropriate 'F' term for a unit of measurement. My argument is twofold: Since it is the suffix, -ful, that turns any ordinary noun into a unit of measurement, I assert that the issue of measurement lies within the suffix itself. Furthermore, since it is the suffix that gets the plural phoneme,-s or -es (as in cupfuls or handfuls) I maintain that the suffix, -ful, is a viable unit of measurement and that I should get a point for that answer. It should also be noted that I am the only one--as of yet--who holds to this argument. Everyone else...isonTerrel'sside.

Monty Pythong

I'm so proud of this one that I put it on both Blogger and MySpace. This is a String-a-ding original (no pun intended) and I am prodigiously proud of it! I myself braved the Google world with enough daring to type in the word "thong" and press the search button in order to find a picture. Yes, and even I myself edited said thong picture, adding the logo and that hilarious 'G.' Thus I have transformed the image in order to create this, my masterpiece. My magnum opus: MONTY PYTHONG!

What a Girl Needs...in May!

When I find a new product that I really like, I just have to tell all of my friends about it. So, I've decided to list my very favorite things that I think every girl, and even some men, need for May!


Red Toenails!
Face it, there's just something classic about red toenails peeking out of those fabulous peek-a-boo platforms! Find a great shade of red that compliments your skin tone and go wild!
The Perfect Tan!
What goes better with the perfect pedicure than the perfect tan? Jergens Natural Glow lotion is an almost fool proof self tanner that makes you look sun-kissed, not Sunkist. And, lagniappe y'all, it's totally healthrisk free!
Whispie-free Workouts!
Goody has come up with the greatest line of hair doolallies called "Stay put." They have these fabulous little treads in them that tame bangs and fly-aways until the work-out is done. No more balancing on the eliptical while you pull your hair back for the umpteenth time. These babies really work!
The Great (Big) Bag!
Carry-ons have a whole new attitude this season. If you're traveling this summer, ditch that old, bland roll-around and go for something colorful! Carry-on or carry-all, a fun bag makes a girl look forward to packing!
Classic Reading!
This summer, take a break from the here and now and pick up a classic. A great book can take you on a vacation to a whole new time and place, and you don't even have to leave the comfort of an easy chair!
A Fresh Face!
Summer calls for glowing, fresh skin. The newest trend in makeup is mineral powder foundations. Neutrogena's line of "Mineral Sheers" makeup will leave your skin looking fresh and clean. The powder foundation is hardly noticeable, giving you the look of clean, glowing skin!
Chocolate Fix!
Hidden in the Kroger frozen desert section (right around where the Smart Ones healthier choice deserts used to reside) is the biggest piece of chocolate cake you've ever seen in your life. It's the Claim Jumper "Motherlode" six layer chocolate cake. So, ditch the diet for once and choc out with this monster.
A Colorful Bouquet!
Browse at the flea market for these retro flower pins painted every color of the rainbow. Added to the lapel of a jacket, a cardigan, or even a handbag, they add the perfect spring touch to any outfit!

More From the Zoo!

Sorry, Holly. Here are the......PANDAS!

If you've known me for very long at all, you're probably aware that I am plagued by a pesky curse. Someone somewhere along the way put a gris gris on the women in my family. We can't go anywhere or purchase anything that something does not go wrong with it! Seriously, I've seen my mom get hit by the curse three times in one day. Case in point: Wednesday before last Terrel and I got new phones from Cingular and they both stopped working within 5 days. So, we had to take them back. The Curse.

So, when Terrel and I recently visited the Atlanta Zoo with Holly and Glen, Holly's great desire was to see the Pandas before they get shipped back to China. Now, Holly knows about the curse and has seen it in action several times. She also knows that the curse is no respecter of persons and that anyone who just happens to be with me at the time the curse strikes could become the unwitting victim herself. Needless to say, after hearing that I'd been from one end of the country to the other in a single summer, had visited both the Washington and the San Diego zoos, which famously house pandas, and had yet to actually see a panda, Holly was a little worried about her own chances.

Luckily, the curse decided to hide that day. Maybe it was the beautiful weather. Maybe it was that we went early in the morning. Maybe it was the huge pile of bamboo. Whatever the case, we saw some pandas! So here it is, strait from our camera for your viewing pleasure: the majestic PANDA!

The Longest Book!

Well, I finally finished Memoires of Cleopatra. It was the LONGEST book! But it was pretty good, and I would recommend it to anyone. However, it is not for the faint of heart. I started reading it before Christmas. That makes it about 4 full months worth of serious reading. I was suprized to find how much of the fictional recreation is based in fact. (Margaret George is good at recounting her studies and letting the reader know what nuggets of history to take away from her stories.) All in all, it was a wonderful read--and a nice respite from Tudor England, which for the last two years has seemed the only thing that could really capture my imagination. Who will be next? Some other famous female ruler? No. I think I'm going to take something a little lighter hearted on....Maybe the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.

Holly Says

"We have a blended service which means, I guess, that we sing hymns with drums."

Thank you, Holly, we were all wondering. ;)

Must Love Dogs

Today I heard the funniest story from one of my single friends who will remain nameless. She always calls me to tell me about her latest dating follies. Recently a young man, to whom we refer as "The Tulip" (so Sex & the City), has taken an interest in my friend. Yesterday he invited her to go to the dog park with him and to her suprize he brought along his roommate's dog so that she'd have a dog to walk too. As cute and sweet as it was, all I could think was, "You mean, he brought a wing dog?"
So, here's a salute to the mighty wing dog, and to the guy who was sweet enough to bring her.
Just give 'er a sniff, I'll get a hug and a kiss, mighty wing dog.
One more cute little wag, and this one's in the bag,
Wing DoooooooooOOOOG!
