Pajama pants.

That phrase seems to be so confusing to people, so let me break it down.  “Pants” is the noun of the phrase…the main subject.  While “pajama” is the adjective, giving more meaning to its noun…pants.  Much like a ball gown is to be worn at balls and a baseball uniform is to be worn at baseball games…pajama pants are to be worn to bed.

So why (why????) are so many people wearing them out and about?

Is the fact that the word “pants” is in the phrase throwing people off?  If you’re not a small child who’s parent dragged out of bed to go shopping or a hungover college student…then you know better than to wear pajamas outside of the house.  I just don’t think putting on a pair of jeans is that much effort and it completely raises the comfort level of those strangers around you…am I the only one put off by seeing strangers in their pajamas?

Let’s do better people!  Who’s with me?!

You MUST watch this video!  A co-worker of mine showed me this video a few days ago and I hollered!  It’s about “doing the do” once you’re an established couple and it is too funny.  Seriously…TOO funny!  Please, please watch it and listen carefully…it’s the witty kind of funny that actually requires you to pay attention.  Well worth it…let me know what you think.

FYI, the ladies in the office were cracking up and the men were just shaking their heads…which made it even funnier!


Caption this! October 24, 2010

So I was visiting Simple Marriage’s blog today and saw this picture and it made me giggle.  He’s got a series about stripping away the unnecessary and focusing on the bare essentials…but I wondered what I could come up with for captions for the picture.

  • Chica: Ummmm, could I get a leaf that’ll cover my ta-ta’s please?
  • Chica: *to Dude*  I see that leaf of yours is at attention…don’t even think about it!
  • Both: Why are our heads so ginormous?
  • Dude: *to Chica* The next time we go for a run, maybe we should put some clothes on!
  • Both: Oh my goodness…there’s Sue and Jared, close your eyes and pretend like we didn’t see them!

So do you have any captions for this pic?  Hit me up in the comments!

Things I don’t get

  • Homeless people with dogs.  I went to Walgreen’s the other day and there was a dude outside who was clearly homeless asking for money…and he had a dog sitting next to him with a little water dish and food on the ground.  Seriously?  So you can’t take care of yourself, but you can take care of a dog and you want me to give you my loot?  Try again, partner.
  • Moms with neck tattoos.  Some friends of ours pointed out this trend to me and now I can’t stop seeing it!  One second you see a cute little kid and the next you see them calling for Mommy and here comes ole girl with “Hot Tamale” printed in cursive on her neck.  *shaking head*
  • People wearing camouflage.  Are you off to war?  Are you huntin’?  If your answer was no to both of those questions…I just don’t understand.

Things that I wish I could do

  • Wear skinny jeans.  I’m not a big person, but I sure look like one in those jeans!  When I see them on other ladies, they’re so cute…on me, they’re fatty jeans.
  • Dance like the people on So You Think You Can Dance.  They’re amazing…I really love that show.  They’re such well-trained and amazing and skilled dancers…awesome!  Plus they have to take such risks week after week, it has to be hard and thrilling all at the same time.
  • Not get tickled during a pedicure.  I love getting my toes done and the massage and just having someone else dote on me.  Until they get to that part where they scrub the bottom of my feet.  Then I’m making faces and trying not to squirm…and I’m pretty sure the lady doing my feet laughs at me on top of everything.

Thing I’m happy I have

  • Health.  I know it sounds cheesy, but so many things can go sideways in this lifetime and I’m blessed to be basically healthy as a horse.
  • Beer in the fridge.  When I get home, I’m cracking on of those suckers open…I’ve been working like a field slave around here and it’s time to get a tasty beverage.
  • Other marriage blogs.  I don’t have a ton of married homies, so I’ve learned tons from other ladies online…y’all are the best!

Anything you want to add to any of the lists?

I saw this Family Guy a couple of weeks ago and hollered…I just thought it was too funny.  Then I saw a clip on Nightline and felt comforted that intelligent people thought this was funny too.  Watch it and I’m sure you’ll laugh.  Then watch it again and laugh.  Then watch it again because you’ll start to dissect the video, like this:

  • Why is Brian (the dog) wearing a banana suit?
  • Why does he even have a banana suit?
  • Are those maracas?!  Why does he need those?
  • What the heck kinda lyrics are those?  (This, my friends, is the crux of its hilarity…how many of us danced to Tootsie Roll?  What, on Earth, does that song mean?)

And the more you ask logical questions about this completely illogical bit of video, the more you’ll laugh.  That much laughter from thirty seconds of my life should be illegal.

I asked The Mister if he’d like it if I did “It’s Peanut Butter Jelly Time!” for him when he’s grumpy and he said only if I get the banana suit.  I think that can be arranged!

Scene: at The Mister and I’s home…that only has one bathroom (you’ll see why that’s important soon).

Me:  *putting my bedtime clothes on and getting ready to hit the hay*

The Mister: *turning out the lights and locking up the house for the night*

Me: *seeing him heading down the hall* Are you going to the bathroom?

The Mister: *looking at me like I’m crazy because there’s nothing else down that hall* Yeah.  (But said like “duh”.)

Me:  *nervously* Ummmm, is what you’re about to do gonna take one step or two?  Because I’ve gotta go too, but I’ve only got one step…so let me go first if you’ve got two steps.  *nimbly dodging the outright use of the words “poop” and “poo”*

The Mister:   *laughing* I’ve just got the one.

Me:  *relieved* Oh…okay.  Carry on.

How do you and your honey handle the bathroom…um…situation?  I know that we’re in a unique position since we only have one.  Do you have any unspoken rules?  Like warnings?  Or this bathroom is for one step…but use this one if your bathroom experience will require more than the basic one step endeavor?
