Stupid Phrase

"It is what it is". I hate that. I'm hearing it more and more lately. Some things are what they are, but not every damned thing. Most of the time it's "it is what you made it" and "it is what you let it be" or even "it is what what you freaking decided it should be".
I am one who gets very tired of overused phrases and this one is at the top of my list right now.

Other options

I could also:
Join the circus,
Join a cult and then irritate the hell out of them until they throw me out,
Try to get on a reality show
Become a mattress tester and nap all day and get paid for it.
Still thinking.......

What shall it be????

Since my 2nd divorce is now final, I find myself at 54, retired with a part-time job and living a life that many women would envy. I need to do something new. Here are some options I've thought of:
Get a tattoo
Join the Peace Corps
Become a lesbian
Write a book
Find a rich old man to marry


Is This On???

I haven't blogged in months and months. I think I'm ready to start spouting my opinions again.

Health Care Reform

How can anyone be against Health Care Reform? Please explain it to me. People are dying and going broke because they can't afford insurance. I don't understand the argument against it. Are people just happy with the way things are? Doesn't everyone have a right to affordable medical care? What's the deal here????????

Conversation Between My Mom and her Sister In Law

My mom is almost 87 and her sister in law is in her 70's. They talk on the phone several times a week. I often ask her what they talked about. Here's my version of their conversation:

LaVerne: Hi! What are you doing?

Elsie: Eating a bowl of cereal.

LaVerne: What?


LaVerne: Oh, you’re watching a serial?

Elsie: YES

LaVerne: How are you feeling?

Elsie: Oh, not so good. I had a treatment Friday and I’ve had diarrhea and a sore throat since Monday.

LaVerne: Your diarrhea is sore and funny?

Elsie: Yeah.

LaVerne: I saw the new baby Nathan. He’s handsome. Boo calls Josephine “the baby”

Elsie: He’s a hand full? Boo does what?

LaVerne: YES

LaVerne: Well, I guess nobody is going to pick me up and take me to their house.

Elsie: A body was picked up at your house?

LaVerne: YES

Elsie: Well, what can ya do?

LaVerne: That’s for sure.

Elsie to Mary: LaVerne said that Nathan is something and she did something and I can’t make heads or tails of it.

LaVerne to Debby: Elsie said something about a serial and diarrhea. I can’t make heads or tails of it.
