Who Needs a Fork?

Or spoon? Or spatula? Or plate? I think I need none of the above when I am eating some yummy Boston Cream cake myself. However, I think my husband is shocked at my ability to eat a piece of cake with my bare hands. He was on the phone, when he stopped talking and said:

"Good gawd, leave some cake for me!"

If I had not had my hands full with some cake that needed to make its way into my mouth, I would have flipped him off, but..... instead I just glared at him lol Then I took myself and my piece of cake with me to another room to savor the last morsels of Boston Cream Cake-goodness =)

And Now For The Rest Of The Story

Sometimes, it really is better to know the 'rest of the story' to things you hear. I am on the drive home from work and dealing with my Sirius radio cutting out. It may be the FM transmitter, but we are not sure yet. Whatever it is, you will be listening to someone talking or singing, and then silence. It is then back to talking or singing for a bit, then some more silence. Generally, these periods of silence do not last too terrribly long, but long enuf to really annoy you if you are trying to sing along to a song. Or trying to listen to the DJ talk about something, as in today. Despite the problems I was having, I finished listening to a song I liked. Then there was silence. Then the DJ all the sudden starts talking by saying:

'its like a shot in the a$$'

Then silence.

Then the DJ again:

'good times, good times'

Then silence.

Which prompts me to look at my Sirius radio in dismay and turn it off lol

Casinos, Broken Arms and More

I know I have blogged about this before, but I swear some days have a 'theme' to them. For instance, on the day we were on our way home from Deadwood, SD, I saw at least two people with their arms in casts/slings. The first one was at the Hampton Hotel we stayed at. We took advantage of their 'continental' breakfast and noticed there was a a guy standing by the food line with his arm in a cast/sling. I kinda wondered why he was standing there watching us, altho I suppose what else can he do with only one good arm? However, it was a good diet reinforcement, as I felt guilty for grabbing two mini boxes of fruit loops versus one and a yogurt. A very small yogurt I might add *sniffle*

The other broken arm dude was seen somewhere on the way home to KC standing on a street corner. Needless to say, this made me wonder also - as we had to stop at the light so he had ample opportunity to cross the street at that time. However, he stayed put and stayed there looking rather forlorn. So I stared at him while we drove past and wondered what da heck was happening to people that I would see 2 people with broken arms in one day.

The day before this, I swear all I saw where billboards advertising for casinos. These casinos were not just plain ole casinos either. They included many other things like gas stations and restuarants. I began to wonder if there was *not* a place in South Dakota that they would not attach a casino to. I came up with a few more they could use (if they havent already!):

Coffee Shops
Rest Stops
Car Dealerships
Dave and Busters
Harley Dealerships

Ya never know, if someone wins a little on the slot machines, they may feel more likely to spend it in the store lol

I did know the 'vacation' was over when I made a couple of comments that made my husband say 'shut up cartman', cuz I sounded like a South Park character. While the reader may think this is just playful banter and not the end of the vacation, let me inform the reader that it was in regards to my 2nd degree sunburn acquired during our latest vacation trip to husband's destination of choice =)

So anyway! I have decided our destination in December for our 5 year anniversary is gonna be all about relaxin' and doting on me lol

Last Night In Deadwood, South Dakota

Well, its been an eventful last few days here at the Sturgis Harley Ralley. For the most part, tho, I have done pretty well. Altho, it has not helped that the pain patches I took off before we left ripped off the first layer of my skin. The first day on the road was a 100 degree day, so that sunburnt off another layer of my skin *sniffle* So my neck and shoulder area looks absolutely fabulous - NOT.

Riding on the back of a Harley is pretty darn exhausting too. It did help the couple of times I took a 6 hour energy drink/shot. I am surprised my neck wasnt more sore after the first time, tho. When you are on a long stretch of highway, on the back of a Harley and an energy drink kicks in - well, you look left, then right, then left, then right, then left, then right - all in a matter of 5 minutes. You then realize what you are doing and decide to amuse yourself by looking at your reflection in your husband's helmet by sticking your tongue out and making faces. That then gets boring, so you decide to sing VERY loud - but despite singing the same chorus over and over again, the wind still manages to make your husband not hear your beautiful music.

Yes, I am refering to myself as 'You' - cuz I am ashamed to admit that it was ME being a goof lol

Eww, that Smell =/

Uhuh, yup! Thats a Lynard Skynard song - altho the lyrics in it talk about an entirely different kinda smell than what I am thinkin' of right now! After just mowing the lawn pretty darn fast tonight, my body thinks I pretty much suck right about now lol So.... in an effort to remedy that situation, I made myself a cosmo and put 5 pain patches on me. These are oriental pain patches and smell terrible - altho I do have to say, they generally work. Whether they work cuz you pass out from the smell, or that your body inside is soaking in the smelly-ness and passes out itself - I am not sure. I suppose it could be the fact that they just plain work, but they still do smell!

Hopefully, I will wake up tomorrow morning feelin' like a brand new person and ready for our trip to Sturgis, SD on the back of the bike. Yup! My husband and I are headed to SD for their annual Harley rally. I am gonna be a Biker Chick for the next few days - woot! lol Anyone who knows me may be....... well, may be wishing me luck right about now. As I am probably way too prissy to be goin' on this trip. BUT they do have 'Bear Country USA' up there, and a store called 'Mostly Chocolates', so SD aint all that bad =)
