Hump Day!

Had a fabo meal here last night! See, I can look really, REALLY tired when hubby comes home, and he just sweeps me away from evening duties!! He's a doll & we had a great dinner.
Now, it's morning and I have to get in the shower; I really want to go back to bed and catch a few more zzz's but duty calls. I was just wondering---if you are the nurse who switched me at birth, and you are reading this, now's the time to come forward. See, I'm on to you--I believe I was born independently wealthy, but some brainless wonder put me back in the wrong crib in the hospital nursery!!! I ended up in middle class America, when in my heart & soul I KNOW beyond a shadow of a doubt, that I should not have to work, clean my own home, wear Wal Mart clothes, count my pennies, and save long and hard for vacations!!!! I know differently because deep down I yearn for those luxuries that I was robbed of! And, now at this stage of life, I'm tired of the rat race---so come on Nurse Noodle Head, speak up and let me get back to being the spoiled diva I hear calling.
Ever feel like that????? But, on the flip side---I am thankful for the blessed life I have lived, for the ability to get up out of bed each and every morning of my own will, for the work ethics instilled in me by my wonderful parents, for the delicious food I am able to have in my cabinets & frig---I was just whining for a few minutes cause it's so cold and dreary this morning. No more whine!!!!
So, hi ho, hi ho, it's off to the shower I go!!! Count your blessings and have a GREAT day!

We Have Been To The Queendom!

Yes, that's her!!! The Sweet Potato Queen herself (she's the one in the sequins--ha ha ha), Jill Conner Browne! She held court at Barnes & Noble tonight, and, as you can see, Queen Penny & Queen Pam marched their noble a***es down to the event!
The "wannabe" queens arrived a full hour early and MAN ALIVE are we glad we did!!! We only arrived early so that we could grab a bite to eat, but lo and behold, there were already several gals with chairs claimed!! So, we were able to get an "A" ticket, load a couple of good chairs down with books, and then grab our food.
We sat on the fifth row back--primo seats dearies!!! Finally, HRH Jill arrived, told several amusing stories, read from her latest book, and answered questions. She is most accomodating--quite friendly, and very accessible. She acted as if she were willing to stay all night if required.
Anyhoo-after a time, it was photo op heaven!!! Queen Jill signed our books, even personalizing them, and allowed us to take as many pictures as we wanted!!!
It was tons of fun! Even saw some familiar faces in the crowd. But, alas, we had the best seats, and weren't going to go and make small talk for fear of losing them!!!
So, if you haven't read any of the Sweet Potato Queens books, hop, skip & jump to the local library or bookstore and pick them up! She has written, "The Sweet Potato Queens Book of Love" "The Sweet Potato Queens Big-Ass Cookbook & Financial Planner" "The Sweet Potato Queens Wedding Planner" (which on the flip side has "Guide To Divorce"), and "God Save The Sweet Potato Queens". The books are funny, raunchy, and southern with a capital SOUTH!!!!! If you want to know more before the stores/libraries open, check out the website at
Have a blast ! And sleep well my pretties!!!
