Celebrating Women for the Real World

Dodging a Bullet….and other stuff

All of us on the Gulf coast get a little nervous when we see a threat of a hurricane.  The devastation of Katrina and the wide spread city panic with Rita has made us all a little edgy this time of year.  We got lucky, this is what we all were looking at last night:


Here at Casa de SuZan, we had missed the news a couple of nights, Big G has been sick and I have been organizing my work load and making sure that I stay on top of things.  So you can imagine yesterday afternoon I was surprised when on the radio they were talking about 5 to 10 inches of rain.  Where the hell did Humberto come from?

Edited to add:  When I posted, I cut and pasted the map.  Around midnight you could see the storm and the eye.  I didn’t know it was a “live radar” and that it would change as the storm went through.


I got this in an email so I give you another goofy game to play………

Do not cheat on this one, go with the first dessert you picked..

If all of the desserts listed below were sitting in front of you, which would you choose?
(sorry, you can only pick one!) Trust me….this is very accurate. (?)
Pick your dessert, and then look to see what psychiatrists think about you.
Here are your choices:

1. Angel Food Cake
2. Brownies
3. Lemon Meringue
4. Vanilla Cake With Chocolate Icing
5. Strawberry Short Cake
6. Chocolate on Chocolate
7. Ice Cream
8. Carrot Cake
No, you can’t change your mind once you scroll down, so think carefully what your choice will be…………..

OK Now that you’ve made your choice, this is what the research says about you…
No Cheating
1. ANGEL FOOD CAKE — Sweet, loving, cuddly. You love all warm and fuzzy items. A little nutty at times. Sometimes you need an ice cream cone at the end of the day. Others perceive you as being childlike.

2. BROWNIES — You are adventurous, love new ideas, and are a champion of    underdogs and a slayer of dragons. When tempers flare up you whip out your saber. You are always the oddball with a unique sense of humor and direction. You tend to be very loyal.
3. LEMON MERINGUE — Smooth, sexy, & articulate with your hands, you are an excellent after-dinner speaker and a good teacher. But don’t try to walk and chew
gum at the same time. A bit of a diva at times, but you have many friends.
4. VANILLA CAKE WITH CHOCOLATE ICING — Fun-loving, sassy, humorous, not very grounded in life; very indecisive and lack motivation. Everyone enjoys being around you, but you are a practical joker. Other should be cautious in making you mad. However, you are a friend for life.
5. STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE — Romantic, warm, loving. You care about other    people, can be counted on in a pinch and expect the same in return. Intuitively keen
Can be very emotional.
6. CHOCOLATE ON CHOCOLATE — Sexy; always ready to give and receive.
Very creative, adventurous, ambitious, and passionate. You can appear to have
a cold exterior but are warm on the inside. Not afraid to take chances. Will not
settle for anything average in life. Love to laugh.
7. ICE CREAM — You like sports, whether it be baseball, football, basketball, or
soccer. If you could, you would like to participate, but you enjoy watching sports.
You don’t like to give up the remote control. You tend to be self-centered and high maintenance.

8. CARROT CAKE — You are a very fun loving person, who likes to laugh. You
are fun to be with. People like to hang out with you. You are a very warm hearted person and a little quirky at times. You have many loyal friends.

I picked brownies…..what did you pick?


You have got to see this.  I wish I had just a tiny, little percentage of the talent this guy has……..can you imagine?

Boggles the mind!


I guess that’s all I have today, have a great Thursday!

    Can I be a chocolate on chocolate brownie with ice cream? Puleeze? Cuz I am … all of them. Weird.

    If you try to take the remote, I will take out my saber, and whap you with it. But I will whap you in a very funny place.

    Vanilla cake and chocolate frosting. 😛

    I was a bit suprised yesterday to hear of Humberto, but for real, can I just say how tired I am of getting all worked up about a big storm coming in, having to wait in long ass lines at the grocery store while everyone freaks out and then wake up to nothing and have to go to work? I KNOW it’s wrong, hurricanes and flooding are no bueno, but teasing us with the idea of free days off of of work? not.cool. 😛

    Same story every time, ‘It’s BEARING down on us, prepare to HUNKER DOWN, while we watch the CONE OF UNCERTAINTY, the STORM SURGE WILL BE HUGE, oh, whoops – we DODGED A BULLET….

    it’s like a bad re-run. 😛 heehee
