May TidBits.

 I had good intentions today, really. I was going to write about Wendy Watts, and how she's a little crazy. She's like a cross between Miss Frizzle and her pet, Liz. I was going to write about her fire red hair that is never obedient, about her quirky personality, her iconic full white skirt and beaded jewelry, each bead having a story to tell. But I can't, because although I decided that 19ºC is absolute spring and summer weather, apparently I forgot to inform body. Therefore, body decided that getting out of the pool, skipping a shower, wrapping myself in towels, and driving home for a shower in 19º is oh so perfect weather for getting an ear ache. So, please put up with me for a while longer and enjoy, May TidBits:

If I ever write a memoir, it'll be called, "Larissa L. Tenorio and Her Big Fat Mouth."
I'm pretty convinced my life would be different if I knew how to keep quiet.


Cleaning/Cooking days (Fridays) are great, 'cause I end up finding a bunch of things I hadn't seen since I lost them on Monday. The bad part about Fridays, is that I end up eating way too much food.


Anybody else ever sometimes want to give it all up and become the dog version of a cat lady?

"Epiphany" is actually a really fun word to say. Epiphany. Epiphany. Epiphany.


 Victor is going through his stamps and looking them up in his catalogue. "What kind of stamp is this? It has no face value!" "Well maybe it has butt value." I answer. I crack myself up sometimes. My mother had a friend (that I never met), who used to tell jokes and then ask, "Aren't I funny?!" Yeah, sometimes I wonder if it's possible to inherit traits from your mother's friends, (that you've never met). 


Wore my cowboy boots today. (: Finally. 
Say it with me ... "You can take the girl out of Texas, but you can't take the Texas out of the girl."


I actually find it giggle worthy when Facebook recommends Paris located pages because I have my location as Paris, France. Tricked Ya! Takes so little to amuse me.


Listening to Battistelli's A Hundred More Years and Victor goes "Oh goodness, how many centuries are you going to live lady?" His logic..

Love it when my Physics textbook deviates from technical language:






And two more things: 


I just made my first bunt cake..I haven't flipped it yet, so wish me luck! So far it hasn't burnt or exploded or anything. So, so far so good. It's cooling outside now, so I'm crossing my fingers hoping no wild and ferocious animal has gotten in it (actually, if an animal did get in it, let's hope that it was a wild and ferocious one as opposed to a tame one that I could possibly get my hands on), and that it flips over nicely. It should! Boy did I grease and flower that pan!


And now, most importantly, Victor's birthday is tomorrow! My widdle baby brother is going to be eleven! Oh I just might start bawling already!

21 Wonderful people made my day!:

  1. Well, I for one am glad that you don't know how to keep quiet !

  2. If I ever write a memoir, it'll be called, "Larissa L. Tenorio and Her Big Fat Mouth." - Lol! I love that.

    "I'm pretty convinced my life would be different if I knew how to keep quiet." - I'm pretty convinced my life would be different if I DIDN'T keep quiet.

    And my nephews birthday is tomorrow too! He's going to be ten :) It's a good day to have a birthday. Wish Victor a happy birthday for me! In fact tell him, "Penblwydd Hapus i Chi! (Welsh) Co` latha breith sona dhuibh! (Scots Gaelic) Hau`oli la hanau! (Hawaiian) :D I like to wish people 'Happy birthday' in different languages. It makes it more interesting :D

  3. Oh, yes. I think I'm half-way to being a crazy dog lady! Or all the way, if I believe a neighbor who was walking his three dogs by my house, and my three dogs were going nuts. He said, "You must be the crazy dog lady! I'm the crazy dog man." We chatted over the fence and over the barking and admired each other's dogs.....yes. Dog crazy!

  4. Your tid-bits always crack me up. I am jealous of the cowboy boots.. I always wanted a pair, but I don't think my calves would fit into them. I watch the Pioneer Woman and I drool over her boots and hats...and I live in NYC!

    1. Ugh, my calves end up being too thin and the cowboy boots are a bit loose up top, but I try to work it. ^-^ NYC is a great place for cowboy boots!

  5. How did your cake come out? I miss my cowboy boots. They were brown suede and fit perfectly, until I got pregnant with my oldest and my feet swelled and grew...!! I had to give them away since they didn't fit anymore...boo, hoo!

    1. It came out splendidly! In fact I'm quite proud of it, or was..it was gone in a day and a half. Oh no! What about new boots?

  6. I always hear that cowboy boots are comfy, but they look so UNcomfortable to me. Maybe I'll have to try a pair someday.
    Happy Birthday to Victor!!! What a lucky kid to have a sister who adores him so.

    1. Hum .. you have to find "the perfect pair". Some of them are really uncomfortable and you give you blisters, but others, are bliss.

  7. I sometimes want to be the crazy black & white cow lady. And this: "Be yourself and your readers will follow you anywhere. Try to commit an act of writing and they will jump overboard to get away." should be posted on the banner of every writing group's page. In fact, I think I'll go post it to the GBE's wall right now.

    I need to do one of these catch-all posts again. It's been a while and I always enjoy them.

    1. :) I loved that quote, and yes! Catch-all posts are so much fun to do and to read.

  11. I like this one: "Be yourself and your readers will follow you anywhere. Try to commit an act of writing and they will jump overboard to get away." Totally. ALWAYS checking myself (and sometimes deleting lots of paragraphs and starting over).

    Happy Birthday to Victor! Don't cry!
