Desperate Working Mommas
Your one-stop site for fanatical television snarking, questionable political analysis, occasional attempts to address the parenting issues facing working mothers, and halfhearted promises to stop obsessing about the entertainment industry, already! Oh, not to mention the random bitching and moaning. There's always that.

Random Nonsense

You know what is a funny word? Freckle. For serious. Freckle is a funny word. Say it. Freckle. See? Freckle, freckle, freckle. Weird, huh? Frecklefrecklefrecklefrecklefrecklefrecklefrecklefreckle... You almost don't even remember what the word means anymore, do you? FRECKLE! (Freckle.)

Nother. People say it all the time, and it is totally not in the dictionary. I wish it were because people-- even smart ones, y'all!-- say "nother" all the freaking time. It would be simple to add it to the dictionary, really: "Nother (adj.) Other, but with an N thrown in for kicks. EX: I can't believe my mom gave me a whole nother donut! Score!" That way, when people say something like, "Well, that's a whole nother story!" or "I'm going to buy myself a whole nother box of donuts since you ate the last one!", it will be totally legit and I won't end up giggling and pointing while saying, "Nother... you totally just said 'nother'... A whole NOTHER!... Hoo!" which inevitably leads to angry people wanting to punch me in the nose. Which is never fun. (Okay, fine. I believe "nother" is in the dictionary, but only to say that it is unequivocally incorrect.)

Oh, my, my, my, y'all!... Miss Kellie "Pick Pickler!" should ABSOLUTELY wear her high school prom dress tonight on American Idol because WOO!



Hey, y'all! Looky here, at my purty li'l prom dress! Ah jist KILLED at the prom in that get-up, Ah tell you what! Too bad Ah didn't have me any of them there fake eyelashes (which felt like tarantulars, y'all! for reals!) like Ah got to wear on American Idol. Those were tickly, y'all, but looked real good. Maybe then Ah would have won Prom Queen instead of Bobby Jo, the fake li'l slut. Anyways, Ah 'member that my grandaddy told me that Ah looked like a two-bit harlot in that get-up, but Ah said to him, Ah said, "But grandaddy, Ah can't help it if my dress is in two bits. It was already like that when Ah bought it at the store!" And hey, don't my belly-button look fiiiiine?! Ah mean, look! Ah'm just the picture of that there genie lady in Ah Dream of Jeannie, right? You know... hmmm... what was her name on that show again?... Anyways, Ah sure look fiiiiine. Maybe Ah'll send home fer the dress. Good LORD, Ah bet Simon would jist bust a guy when he saw me in it. On account a me bein' a naughty mink, and all. I'm a mink!

She looks like a tramptula. (I know, I know. Totally lame. But it was funny when Ah first done thunk it up.)

I love the word nother, mostly because Miss Attitude used that in place of "other" for SUCH a long time. And I got SUCH a kick out of it.

"MooOOOooommmm...Can you help me find my shoe? I found one, but I can't find my NOTHER ONE!"

Hee.

I wouldn't have even DREAMT of asking my mom if I could wear that dress to the prom! Is it an evening gown, is it a swimsuit? Who can tell?

I just thoroughly enjoyed catching up on your posts. You are the only person I know who can use "for reals" in the midst of incredible writing. :)

People will hate...it's the nature of the beast... I kinda feel sorry for her.:-( I think it's the momma in me trying to protect the poor little girl that was abandoned by her own mom.

I must say, I am sorely disappointed in the Pickle if this is indeed a touched-up photo. I mean, that's no fun at ALL...

What a little tart...though I admit she looks good. Does she know that her dress came apart in the middle?

For a whole nother thing, my sister-in-law, the first born to the educated parents who also raised my above-average, well-spoken husband, says "supposibly." Just like Joey on 'Friends.' "Did they go to the zoo? Supposibly." Every time she says it, my husband gives me the no-you-will-NOT-correct-my-sister-look. But seriously, wouldn't you WANT to know?

I have to say, if I had a body like that I would wear the dress. I don't know where I'd wear it, but I would. Maybe up to the Kareoke bar while I do my rendition of I will always love you...

Nother IS in the dictionary! I was delighted to find (because I use noter all the time) that
Merriam-Webster
defines it as "adjective: OTHER -- used especially in the phrase a whole nother; used chiefly in speech or informal prose". Woo Hoo! Score one for the erudite rednecks!

word verification: xfmumho
I resent your word verification callin my mum a ho - especially in light of your earlier post!

Okay, Cat, here's the thing: I missed AI last night. I KNOW, right?!? Can you even freaking believe it??

The VCR was set and the tape rewound, but there's a stupid little button on the VCR that has to be pushed OR IT WON'T RECORD ANYTHING IT'S FREAKIN' PROGRAMMED TO RECORD. And Deputy Dad and I BOTH forgot to push the frickity frackin' button.

So I'm waiting for your AI post. Because it will be my only chance to experience the show the way it was meant to be experienced...with ample partiality and snarkiness. So, you know. I'll be checking in every few minutes...er, I mean hours, and just [im]patiently awaiting your update.

Smooches!

LadyBug...what's this thing you speak of? A V.C.R. ???

Buttons..that aren't on a remote but on the actual device?

hee hee.

AI sucked, you didn't miss anything!!

(4 attempst at the stupid word verification...i got nemopi. I think I might be able to do this one.)

Love the comments here.

Natgo, "supposibly" would drive me nutso too but I would have to hold my tongue and maybe use the word correctly an hour or so later to see if it catches on. Sometimes this works and then other times, they think you're the one who doesn't know how to say the word right. The other day I heard a guy say "volumptous". Ugh. Idiot.
And Ladybug, like Kristine said, you didn't miss much. It was not a good night for AI.

If you're the prom date, exactly how long do you stay at the prom before announcing it's time to leave and start the after-party. I'm thinking second song.

Probably because I cannot stand Pickler and her Nashville Star-ness, this is exactly the dress I would expect her to wear. "Whaaat? A prom dreyss shouldn't beee in TWO paayces???"

And yes, it does look like hair...down there. What kind of grandpa would let their granddaughter out in this dress???
