Maybe I should be cleaning ...
I'm having one of those (thankfully) rare days where I can't seem to get anything happening. Too bad it's my day off.

I've had this weird twitch in one of my abdominal muscles all day. It's like when I worked at the livestock feed sales job which I hated and I had an eye twitch for the entire 10 months.

I keep expecting an alien to come ripping out of my stomach or something. I should sell tickets.

This is definitely South Park me.

Not cool that you feel that way, but cool that you were on South Park. :)

Grover said...

My abs have been flipping out and cramping up too, as have many others around here. Maybe it's a bug or something? Either way, I empathize with you. :-(

Jacquie, alas I was not on South Park (I wish!), this was just a South Park generator:

Try it out - it's fun for the whole family.

Andy, mine is only in the muscle and doesn't hurt at all. It's just kinda weird is all, but thanks for the sympathy. I hope you're better soon.

Barbara you inspired me! I am booked to go see George while he is taping in Montreal. I can't believe I am doing this... The tic thing could just be stress. Don't worry about it!

michelle said...

Oh no, the dreaded involuntary tic. Sounds like girlfriend needs a new job PRONTO. And it's on your day off, no less. Short choppy sentences. I'm all about communication today.

Pour yourself up a nice full glass of wine, put those beautifully pedicured feet up, and relax!

and continued luck and love to you...

"Bob-luge" was cute, wasn't it! For a moment I thought he was referring to a bobsled athlete named 'Bobloosh'! :)

Stephanie said...

how do you save the south park pic> I made one and can't save it?

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Barbara-in-Montreal, that's terrific! Oh you'll have a great time. It's fascinating to watch the production of the show.

Make sure you hang around afterward to talk to George. I've met him a couple of times now and I can't stop saying enough nice things about him. He is just such a friendly open person - you'll love him. Please say hi to him for me (tell him I'm Eva-in-Calgary's mom).


Michelle, how did you know I got a pedicure today? (I actually did). And the tick is all gone now, but for a while I felt like Tweak from South Park.

I hope your abode search is going swimmingly...


I know Jas, I did too, and I debated long and hard over putting bob-luge in the quotes because I would certainly never want ZZ to feel I was mocking his English, but it was just too cute.


Stephanie, you have to take a screen cap and then save it into Photoshop or Paint. I'd love to see yours sometime. The talented Michelle actually started the whole South Park me thing.

Stephanie said...

OK how do you take a screen cap?

michelle said...

Stephanie - get the picture you want on your monitor and hit Print Screen on your keyboard. Open up MS Paint (if you're using Windows). Hit Paste and your image should show up in Paint. Crop the image you want (in this case your South Park pic), choose "Save As" in your menu, assign a name/folder, save, and you're good to go.

There are probably other ways but that's what I do (thanks GOB).

michelle said...

Barb, I had no idea you had a pedicure today, it just sounds so luxurious and you seem to enjoy it so much I thought I'd send a good thought your way! Wow, I'm an idiot psychic savant, cool.

Glad you're no longer Tweak'ing. For what it's worth, that visual was VIVID, heh. Perhaps it was the pedicure, a little reflexology and toe pampering might have soothed your soul!

Ah, the abode search goes. We took a weekend off to go touring in our car, woohoo! :D I should blog on this. Should...

Stephanie said...

Thanks Michelle!
The problem was I kept pushing the print button and nothing was happening so I didn't think it was doing anything. I just wasn't pasting. *lol*

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Sorry, I didn't get back to answer your question, Stephanie (too many computer hogs in this house), and thanks for your help, Michelle - most kind person you are.

I'm hoping to see some kick-ass new South Park characters soon (see what you started Michelle?)

And I think you are right - the pedicure likely did have some reflexology effects (that Galina has magic hands). This makes for yet more ammunition in my arguement that pedicures are medically necessary and should be covered by Health Care.

I hope your wonderful new car leads you to great places *cough*Calgary*cough* as well as drives you right up to the best new home anyone ever had.

Kellee said...

You are too funny Barb! ohhhhh,ohhhhh twitchy woman..... :)
xoxo

Barbara Bruederlin said...

You should have seen me Kellee. I felt like an extra in Alien.

michelle said...

Oh I'm so glad I didn't step on your refreshed toes by giving some tips to Stephanie. I get all worried about etiquette when it comes to other's blogs, especially yours!

Me starting the South Park thing? My dear, you are the reigning goddess of all things South Park, I merely rode your wave. I love body surfing your vibe. My how homoerotic.

You're really, really making me want a pedicure. The only thing that squicks me out a touch is this one news report I saw about nail techs not properly cleaning their tools in between clients. The thought of having my toes germinated with someone else's toe flora makes me cringe. Any tips for sanitation you can pass my way?

Thank you for your continued support on the house hunt. No hinting necessary about taking that road trip from Seattle to Vancouver to Calgary this summer, we're kind of thinking of renting a motor home for a couple of weeks. Provided work cooperates, heh.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Michelle, my blog is your blog, my dear! But you know, I wonder about blog etiquette sometimes too and I once even pitched the idea to write a story on that to a local magazine, but they passed. Still think it could have been interesting.

I worry sometimes about pedicure hygiene too. Galina runs a very clean shop and I always see her spraying the instruments and such, but I'd still be a lot happier if everything were autoclaved.

You're really thinking a road trip here this summer? SWEET! I'll start baking right now!
