Monday musings…

…why does the cookie dough taste so much better than the baked cookie? And if it hasn’t been baked, it has no calories, right? That must be why they put the dough in ice cream, because the dough tastes better and it helps keep down the calories. Sa-weet.

…why do dogs sit at the door, asking to go out into the cold, only to run over and drink the water out of the nasty, dirty, poop filled birdbath rather than the clean water that is right in the nice, warm kitchen?

…why do people mangle our National Anthem by doing that thing where they hang every note and do that up and down thing with their voices?

…don’t even get me started on messing up the words. Okay, too late. Hello! Do not even tell me you, the superstar, who has traveled the world singing in front of billions of people, was nervous. I am totally not buying it. It’s what you do for a living! You were so busy doing that trilly thing with your voice (which wasn’t that good) and making “I’m trying so hard not to fart” faces, that you forgot the words. My BFF in Calgary knows all the words, for crying out loud! My thought is, if you mess up the National Anthem, you should be deported. Oh, what? We can’t deport you, because you were born here? Then you should know the words to YOUR national anthem!!

I think the Glee girl would have rocked it.

…I believe this goes to prove that just because you are a superstar, doesn’t mean you can actually sing.

…CGMan and I call dibs on hosting next year’s Super Bowl party. When we lived in MD, we held it every year, complete with 6 foot sub. Tell me, how can it be a super bowl party without a submarine sandwich the size of an actual submarine?

…oh, and I’ll make cookie dough.


  1. I would like to RSVP "yes" to your Super Bowl Party 2012. And I promise to either know all the words to the Anthem, or not sing it into a microphone.

  2. I agree with everything you said!

  3. I give this year's Super Bowl and Yawn Factor of 9.3.

    And how in the world does the National Anthem get so messed up each year is beyond me.

  4. I would also like to RSVP to that party. I like subs. Cookie dough is way better than cookies, that's for sure. AND, I hate riffing. Riffing sucks. One of the reasons why I stopped watching American Idol.

  5. Riffing. I wondered what that was called. And just because you can, doesn't mean you should.

  6. You do not under any circumstances, riff the National Anthem. What was she thinking? Painful.

  7. I think they should have Martina McBride sing it for every Super Bowl. How that much voice can come out of a woman only 5'2" tall, I'll never know.

  8. Cookie dough - yum! I like the dough better than the actual cookie too!

    I went to bed with a book at 7:00PM last night -I couldn't take the bore factor any longer! My Tommy wasn't in the game so it wasn't the same for me! Plus after that bimbo ruined our National anthem I saw no point in continuing to watch anymore - from what I have heard I made the right call!

  9. Invite next year? Please? I'll behave myself.

  10. I knew Dawn of Austin/D.C. was shaking in her boots with anger! It sucked in the worst way!!!

  11. I also am a fan of the cookie dough. And I also am not a fan of riffing. It's our national anthem. Sing it straight and let the words speak for themselves.

  12. I love your dog observations! I can only surmise the bird bath water had more flavor, haha.

    I watch the Super Bowl for the commercials. I was in the kitchen during the National Anthem and didn't hear it, thankfully. You're right - no excuses and no riffing!

  13. Can I admit, right here and now, that we fast forwarded through to the beginning of the game? And that we didn't see the anthem? And that to this very moment, I don't even know who sang it?

    I'm going to fail at current events if I ever get on a TV game show to win a Million Dollars. I'm off to go see a replay on You Tube.

    Oh, and raw cookie dough is THE BOMB.


I would love to hear what you have to say!
