M*A*S*H is my favorite show. I once told a group of gals that tidbit and they groaned with disdain like I was an ignoramus.
I love Niagara Falls. The wax museums and neon make it feel a little bit touristy but I still love it.
Many moons ago Sean and I hopped in the car with no particular destination. We decided which way to go at each turn and ended up in NF, Canada.
The entire drive was occupied by M*A*S*H trivia. And I have to say I am unbeatable. I have been challenged and remained victorious, even against PSmiles.

Happy Birthday to my friend Leah!!!

Post Script: Sean said he was waiting for this to get funny, it doesn't get funny, it is just a beautiful song.

I heard on the radio today that The Rusty Griswold's will be at the Taste of Cincinnati. Wouldn't you know I'll be there too.
When I was in high school, I had a couple of friends obsessed with Vacation. That led me to seeing that movie more times than one would think possible. Vacation and Friday.
I think this is my fave part. Actually my favorite part is when they tell Clark they don't want to go to Wally World anymore and he gets a little surly. And really actually my favorite part of the Vacation movies is the dam part from Vegas Vacation. And I know that hurts my husbands soul to know that and I couldn't find a clip of that because I think I was one of 43 people who saw that movie and the one person that liked it.

Tonight I thought I would stop by the UDF to pick up some deliciousness for my kiddies and me. We had a little party and our mouths were invited.
When we pulled up to the home of the some ice cold perfection, the line wrapped around 2 corners and two employees were directing traffic.
I couldn't imagine what all the to do was about and thought back to the time 6 years ago when the gas station near the first house SMM and I lived in had a sign that read $.99 and the whole of Middletown went berserk.
Surely this couldn't be the case, but then I saw it, the sign on the corner for the UDFs gas read a mere $3.67. (That is per 1 gallon.) Well I'll be darned.
Since I didn't think that was that much of a bargain and we just filled up our tank on Sunday for $88.17, we took our cookies-and-creaminess and went home.

In light of another's disparaging remark made last week, I thought I would take the time to set the record straight. I have in the past and will continue today and in the future to be a lover of vegetables. I think their contribution to my life has been unparalleled and I realize the value of my life has only increased with vegetables. I only speak highly of the vegetable, except for a time in my life when I experimented with mushrooms. I tried them sauteed, fried, roasted, braised, stewed and I maintain today that they are incompatible with my palate.

As a young girl, I enjoyed the cooked carrots. I have heard many a story that cooked carrots, strawberries and potatoes were the only foods I'd eat. Notice 2/3 of all consumed food in my formative years were vegetables.

To further demonstrate my affection for ground grown lovers of my soul, I will conclude with a list of my favorite...

collard greens
dark green leafy lettuce
mustard greens
romaine lettuce
black beans
black-eyed peas
garbanzo beans
kidney beans
navy beans
pinto beans
white beans
bean sprouts
all peppers
iceberg lettuce
all potatoes

Now please don't question my love for fruit.

I saw something gross at WalMarts yesterday. Well, I usually see lots of things gross but this one thing seemed really gross.

Harvest Wheat Vanilla Pringles.

I am not sure how the nasty-flavor-comer-uppers of things still have jobs? Do people buy stuff and try it for the try something nasty factor? Because I would throw up. I am sure these chip-likes are delicious to someone, somewhere about whom the tribe has spoken. But I don't think I will try them. I am more of a habitual creature.

My kids would still pick to eat those instead of green beans.
