Chicken Spaghetti

Just when I needed some kitchen inspiration … I WON!  I WON!
All Right.  So… everybody who commented on  a recent post by Swampy  (Anecdotes, Antidotes & Anodes)  won, BUT…that didn’t make it any less sweet.   Especially since I’d been standing in Barnes & Nobles just recently admiring the great success of Ree, The Pioneer Woman.

So – here is my prize! ! A personally autographed Pioneer Woman Cooks!

When I started blogging over four years ago the Swamp Witch and Ree (Confessions of a Pioneer Woman) were two of my very first cyber friends.  I think there was a group of about 10 of us who got linked up through  “blogging chicks;” not to mention a clever and cynical cyber Aussie hunk.  Swampy and I can talk about him later…..

I keep track of Ree’s success.  I still read her blog (it’s like a three ringed circus) and now I’ve even watched her television appearance on THE VIEW!! 

Swampy continues to blog on her broom; a trick I admire.  She keeps that  sonic sweeper in constant motion and I just am always tagging along in the comment section.

And me?  Well, I’m just going to get up tomorrow and cook. We need some semblance of normalcy right now, and a good pan of chicken spaghetti just seems to fit the bill.

ps.  Thanks Ree and Swampy.  Hugs and damp lashes.

Hummer Dummer


This is the HUMMER. (She joined me for breakfast this morning on the patio.)

The DUMMER is me. 


I accidentally deleted a part of my cell phone contact list.

I got a new DROID.  The yearly contract says I can upgrade my phone for minimal costs.  Of course, there is always more expense than meets the eye.  Insurance. Data Feed.  Yada Yada Yada.  But in the end the actual phone only cost $50 because of a rebate.

When the technician transferred my information from the old antiquated phone to this new "Beam Me UP Scotty" gadget,  she briefly mentioned that the info was shared on my Google contact list.  These young geniuses forget that some of us are technically challenged.  She just rattled off some facts and threw the owners manual at me.

I rarely used Google so only had four contacts on there.  That is why I was initially confused yesterday when I opened Google on my PC and noticed all sorts of cell phone contact numbers listed.

"Whaaaa?"  I thought.  "There is no reason to put my friends telephone numbers out here where someone might hack them!"

And, then I started deleting them.  Fortunately I stopped before completing the task.  The sudden and acute memory of "Droid talks to google" hit me like a full salt shaker to the head. 

So, if I don't call you, it's because I'm embarrassed.

And, I don't have your number anymore.
