I've found my new career path!

Greetings from the Emerald Isle! I have been quite busy the last two days, including taking full advantage of the Irish summer that came yesterday. Now that summer is done and over with, I can get back to typing! A note from my last blog: I haven't responded to everyone who comment but I did get the common question of "what do you do with cow's blood and cow's bile?". Blood, I know, bile, I have no clue. You can make black pudding with the blood, otherwise known as blood pudding or blood sausage. I have only tried this once (because it is fairly common over here) and it's not my favorite. Bile, I have absolutely no clue and I don't know if I want to know.

Now, I have to share a little funny conversation that Branden and I had before bed the other night. A lot of times we look at Pinterest to wind down. (brief fuzzy brain note: I just now realized that wind: to wind something up, and wind: or breeze, are spelled the same. Of course I always 'knew' this but I only woke up two hours ago so my brain almost exploded at the obvious realization of this). Anyway, we were looking through Pinterest the other night and we came across a photo of the largest swimming pool in the world. For those of you who don't know about it, it covers 20 acres and gets as deep as 115ft. Here's our conversation:

Branden: "Isn't that pool in Brazil?"
Me: "No, it's in Argentina." (I was wrong! It's in Chile.)
Branden: "Oh ok."  *pause as I'm now looking at other pins* "You know that's where they are going to film Titanic 2 don't you?"
Me: *slight mumble of acknowledgement that he spoke* "Ok" *more pausing as I keep looking at other stuff* "...Wait, wait, wait, there is no Titanic 2, they sunk the first one!"
Branden: *Laughing because he managed to totally get me!*
Me: "And why in the world would you even have another Titanic in South America???"
*We both laughed for quite a while

And now for the rest of your Friday enjoyment, I have some more ridiculous search engine hits!

All the llamas is ours - I didn't laugh when I first saw this, I cringed! I'm really hoping that the next website this person found was a grammar site!

Bad day waxing story - Is this not a given? I don't believe you could possibly have a "good day waxing story"!

Crazy cat lady job - PLEASE TELL ME THIS IS A REAL JOB!!!! I'LL TAKE IT!!!

Leggings problem - If you are having a problem with your leggings then you most definitely came to the right place. GET RID OF YOUR HEINOUS LEGGINGS! There, problem solved!

Planet splitter ape - Um what? All I can imagine is a world where apes work as lumberjacks and wield giant axes. I don't know if they would like wearing flannel shirts though....

Pocahontas dog costume - For your dog's sake, go call an animal cruelty hotline now and turn yourself in!

Hamster horse centaur - Now there is a mystical creature that I would like to see! Nothing strikes fear into the hearts of people quite like a huge, muscular horse body with a teeny, tiny, fluffy hamster head! But on a more practical note, how would it eat?

Dog fart myself awake - Just blame it on your human and go back to sleep.

  1. FYI: You use beef bile for flavoring. I wish I was joking. It seems to be in a lot of recipes from The Phillipines.

  2. Once upon a time during the Dark Ages when I was a little girl, I believe the largest pool in the U.S. was in Kansas. I'm going to take a wild guess and say it was in Garden City. Why I don't Google this and get my facts straight, I don't know. Maybe it's more fun to guess. I believe it was finally closed when I was a young adult. It was in very bad shape and because it was so big people drowned in it regularly. I wonder if this is true or I heard it in a dream? Dreams v. Reality. What's the difference?

    Love,
    Janie

    1. I think it's more fun when you guess. Sounds legit to me and I could just imagine all the problems a giant pool would cause but goodness, I didn't even think about the drowning problems! Yikes!

    2. The pool in Garden City is still there and still open. When it needed repairs they started charging admission. People have water skied in that pool, and elephants from the nearby zoo bathed in it after the pool closed for the season. I don't why the pool would have to be closed. I don't mind a little elephant poo in the pool. Anyway, it's not the largest pool in the U.S. It used to be billed as the largest FREE pool, but it's not longer free; so it's just one darn big pool.

  5. Fist off, that pool is insane...I could float in there for hours. Secondly, I'm really glad I don't have the ability to fart myself awake...I think. Happy Friday!

    1. The only thing is that it's a salt water pool and I don't do well in salt water. I am the crazy person that would rather go to Hawaii and swim in a regular pool than the ocean...

  6. Isn't White Pudding made from cow bile, or did I dream this?

    1. Good thing I randomly looked at white pudding ingredients the other day at a friends house! It's actually oatmeal and then bacon, pork fat, pork mince, pork, pork and more pork... No bile though thankfully! Although who knows, maybe some counties use it for a secret ingredient flavor...
