The other day my husband and I were driving somewhere and started talking about a movie we had seen with Jean-Claude Van Damme in it. We noted it was a 'decent' movie and agreed that it deserved probably about 3 out of 5 stars. However, from there, we dissected the movie a bit more by commenting on how certain parts seemed like Van Damme was trying to look *too* bad a$$.

I mention how it reminds me of Steven Seagal, even though Seagal has seen his heyday so to speak - Seagal keeps appearing in the occasional movie like he has not aged and like he has miraculously turned into a better actor. Which prompted my husband to start talking in a Seagal voice on EVERYTHING after that he said...

Tired of his antics, I started singing the song 'I wanna kiss you all over' by Exile which he hates. And, by the way, if you are wondering why he hates it, just watch this video and watch the main dude singing. I mean, REALLLY, watch the main dude singing lol (

Anywhooo! This worked temporarily - very, very temporarily. After maybe a minute he starts singing the Beverly Hillbillies theme song which I hate...

Yeah, so anyway! The moral to this story? Sometimes even when you think you are winning you are not...

Sorry to burst y'all's bubble =)

Being Sick...

There are times when you don’t need input from certain people when you are sick. Usually, this happens when it is not a close friend or someone with good intentions…

However, when it is a company that is just trying to upsell their product? Yeah… that is not so cool..

Not too long ago I was miserable with the ‘creeping crud’ that seems to be making its rounds. I was congested, my head hurt, my body ached, and well…. I just felt overall miserable in a nutshell. However, I was not to be deterred in my attempts to make this crud go away that much quicker. I put a hot towel on my head. I double dosed on Mucinex to where I found it difficult to even sleep. And I tried using breathe right strips on my nose to uh, breathe better….

Yet, even the latter did not end well, as I managed to bruise my nose. Since my husband was gone at the time, I texted him a picture of my displeasure/disgust. I even ’tweeted’ about how my nose was bruised… only to get this in response the next day:

FROM@ Breathe Right: Can u please give us a call so we can answer any questions and understand how ur using Breathe Right? 1-800-858-6673. Thanks!




#1 I do not need to call you. IF I wanted to call you, I would have done so to begin with. I *am* sick, remember? I just wanna curl up in my bed and be as lazy as possible – do you think being lazy entails calling F’N you? *Lisa takes imaginary phone and slams it into something hard to make herself feel better*

#2 Why da heck do you think it’s MY fault? Maybe, just maybe, your flippin’ product doesn’t work as well as you think/hoped. And maybe I don’t think it’s gonna make me feel better by calling you to tell you what you are doing wrong!? *Lisa takes imaginary cell phone again and throws it across the room*

#3 WTF? Seriously? ME call YOU??!! Are you not the least but concerned my nose is bruised and that I am sick? HUH? *whine* *Lisa picks up imaginary cell phone & holds it as she cries big large drops of sadness onto it*

So there ya have it Breathe Right. I will pinch my nose really hard to make myself feel better before using you again thank you very much.
