Are you ready for some football???

Tonight, I am headed to go see me some football live and in person. Cool huh? Bad part is I am not a fan of either of the teams. I am NOT a Vikings fan and I am definitely NOT a Dallas fan (ducking from my TX friends here hehe). But that is not going to stop me from having a good time. I have talked about this before, I can watch sports on TV for a limited time but I LOVE going to the game live.

Teenage daughter had a good birthday (I think - she is a teenager she doesn't tell me everything...hehe). Once again she was being a poser (first was the whole birthday month thing - trying to be like her mom - me!) what did she want for dinner? Lobster! What did she get for dinner? Lobster! Yeah, I know - I am a sucker but I like birthdays. The pic is a little blurry but you get the idea...

The man child is still looking out for me. I am on the couch last night and he calls down from upstairs...

Man Child: Hey Mom
Cheeky: Yo
Man Child: Grease is coming on TV tomorrow night
Cheeky: Thanks

At least he didn't wake me up in the middle of the night to tell me this. That is progress people.

Once again, I was wearing a sweatshirt yesterday and I already have one on this morning. I don't like cold but I do like sweatshirt weather. I am wearing my new scrappin sorority one and it is so soft.....I mean really really soft. Speaking of scrappin, Scrapfest 2007 is just around the corner. Starts a week from tomorrow and yeah I have an entire weekend planned - I am an addict and during scrapfest I have to be careful of OD'ing....hehe.

The state fair is in town but I haven't had time to go yet. I am thinking tomorrow will be a good day. Take off work early and just go. That is the only day the teenage daughter has free from tennis. OH and while I was on vacation (which is why I didn't post it right away) she tells me that she is CAPTAIN of her team! Way to go!

OK that's it, that's all I got for now. Happy Thursday!

Meet Cheeky Spears

I did it ya'll. I couldn't take it anymore. Katie tried all last week to keep the scissors from me. The hair was just buggin' and I.JUST.COULDN'T.TAKE.IT. So yesterday, mid day I called my hair girl and said - I need an intervention, I need you to see me today or its all coming off. I got the appt for 7:15 last night. She talked me into not cutting it ALL off but to just take a few inches - so we compromised on 4. 4 inches ya'll and its still below my shoulders - barely but still. It feels soooooo good. All those dried icky looking ends are gone. My hair is soft again. It can be washed without looking like a nest again. AND I can still put it up to make myself look smart when I want to. I think I am happy now. I don't think I will go shorter - yet.

I know I know - yes, pics are coming but not at 7:30 in the am when I just got up and it looks well - cute but I don't.

Things I have learned this week....

About Katie:

It is really KATIE that will keep you up until 1:45 am watching the Golden Girls - she may try to blame me but Noooooo it was her.

Bond, James Bond.

Will give you a cheek ache - seriously this girl has made me laugh all week long.

We tried to fight - but just couldn't.

Two words: Vodka Cran.

Beer count: 5 Cocktails: lost count on day 2.

Doesn't do horror flicks - this is where we agree to disagree.

We are too much alike - so much in fact that we have the same sleep number.

She might try to break her leg but she will look damn good doing it.

She says: "Its a dear diary day"

When you say something really funny (about oh I dunno - your obsession with Bon Jovi) and you make her laugh really hard - she will fall on the floor laughing - ROTHLMAO - that was about her. She is the personification of it.

She put up with listening to the 80's channel on the satelite radio in the hot little car all week long.

She can handle me singing.

Things I have learned about Patti:

You probably already knew this but I heart this woman.

She is not only the monogram queen but also the t-shirt diva!

By her own admission - she attracts freaks.

She has tiny feet and hands. Tiny!

She will answer "where miss cheeky at?" and "football game?" over and over within a 45 minute period.

Her man is a riot!

Her man can cook - you want low country boil - go see him!

Things I have learned in General:

I not tarded I tell my Daddy!

When staying with someone for an extended period of time the conversation will eventually turn to farts and burps - even if you are girls.

My hot little rental car was possessed and when you turned it off the angels would sing to you.

Don't try to jump on a sleep number bed.

My sleep number bed was possessed.

Don't let the Pepsi label fool you - its really diet coke.

The golf channel is like the sex channel - blocked out on the hotel cable.

Update from the Charlotte Aiport forward

Katie thinks row 14 is actually row 12.

The flight attendant for this leg of the trip was a freakin riot. "If you hit the call button we will come, if it was a mistake just hit it again, if you hit it a third time you will automatically be ejected to the wing of the plane." Seriously, she said this and many other things....I heart her.

If you have never rented a car before, please step to the end of the line and let the professionals through. It will take us 5 minutes....seriously 5 MINUTES, it took you half an hour because you whine and moan about what car you want, safety deposits and mandatory car seats for your hellion of a child.

Patti's man Stacy will try to rent you a male escort when you call Patti's phone to get directions for the house. I told him to give me 3 cause one might get tired.

Stacy is a riot.

Madison is too cute for words.

People in the south LURVE Vera Bradley handbags so when you are looking for one for your teenage daughter for her birthday next week - yeah it can be a little hard to find.

If you ever want a low country boil (or frogmore stew as we call it) just call Stacy - he will hook you right up.

When going to the Riverbanks zoo, don't try to go around the corner to look for the ticket booth - you will get hunted down like the freeloader that you are. Then after purchasing said tickets, the ticket nazi will then follow you into the bathroom.

It has been decided that the zoo management has decided that paying someone to say "welcome to the zoo" in a soothing voice over the speaker system all day is much more important than having maps that are accurate OR placing signs to tell you where you are going.

Wendy and Jayke are too fun. Jayke is totally cracking me up.

When kids tap on the glass with a quarter, the gorilla will elbow the glass and make them crap their pants.

Not only are we directionally challenged at the zoo but the directions for the hotel in Myrtle Beach were just a wee bit off. But we made it and then totally passed out after getting we were not drunk (geesh you think we are a bunch of lushes or something) we were tired, toasted from the heat and just plain exhausted.

But before passing out we did notice that there was a sad little man all alone in the heart shaped hot tub at the short hotel next to us. He sat there all alone for the longest time. He never did find love. Could be cause you were by yourself in the hot tub....just sayin'.....

So that is it....that is what we have so far. Today we slept in pretty late (its 10:30a already) and so we are making our game plan for the day. Updates will either be here or over at Katie' place so check back often.

In the words of Beck....

Sooooooooo open the door.....I'm a loser baby......hahaha

Kidding kidding. I am in a GREAT mood. Just been sorta busy this morning and so I am a little behind on getting my post out. Why? you ask? Cause me, Katie, Patti, and Wendy (on Monday) are gonna be hanging out getting our blogger love fest on! Wait! That sounds sorta perverted huh? LOL Well I love my blogger buds so I guess if you want to have your mind in the gutter....go for it!

I was gonna do the meme that Jenie tagged me with but I just don't have the time right now. I will do it though - promise! I have so much to do before leaving at the butt crack of dawn to pick up Katie and hop a plane .....cause we are hitting the beach baby (oh wait - I already told you that didn't I?). Katie is bringin the laptop so I am sure between the three of us you will be getting some updates....assuming we can find wireless somewhere.

So, now I have to go pack, charge the iPod, get the nails done (NEED to get the toes done but I still can't get a pedi - the heel has not healed YET!), get groceries so my kids don't starve next week....and lots more.

In honor of my trip - the teenage daughter has decided that SHE would like to sing a little ditty for this is coming from HER not me.....A little Family Force 5....Kountry Gentlemen (so appropriate too - it mentions the Pig....I heart the Pig)...

I come from the land where the mullet attacks
Business up front
Party in the back
You gotta style in the south when ur stepping out
Put a gold tooth in ur mouth
Look at you now
Tank top, ur ball-cap, you think ur all that
But ur looking like Scott Stapp
Ur just another redneck from back in the woods
Not a Kountry Gentleman that can bring the goods, Tayoooo

My mama raised me in the durty south
A Kountry Gentleman
So you best watch ur mouth
My mama raised me in the durty south
A Kountry Gentleman
That's what it's all about

IROC-Z, got an eagle on it
Rolling on some 12's
Don't you know I'm gonna flaunt it
Am I driving too fast for you now?
The muffler goes KA-PLOW!!

Now that I got ur attention
Just let me mention that I'm pinchin' pennies
To buy some 20's
Cause I got plenties and many's of monie's just to give to my friends
And that would certify me as a Kountry Gentleman....BURRRRRDDDD!!

Mama, what you got cookin' up in that kitchen?
Cookin' fried chicken?
Cause you know I love that soul food
Everythang you cook is so good
For a southern man like me
U gotta cook it up clean, cook it up mean
Mama don't like it when you got leftovers

Gimme me some of them collard greens
Got me some grub and I gotta go
Down to the Grocery store
Tailgate party at the PIG WIG
Jumpin' up and down in the back of a truck bed
Look at that kid tryin' to act all big
Tried to break-dance and broke his leg
He ain't got what I got
Let's make it hot in this parking lot

My mama raised me in the durty south
A Kountry Gentleman
So you best watch ur mouth
My mama raised me in the durty south
A Kountry Gentleman
That's what it's all about


The durty durty south
The durty durty south
The durty durty south


My mama raised me in the durty south
A Kountry Gentleman
So you best watch ur mouth
My mama raised me in the durty south
A Kountry Gentleman
That's what it's all about

My mama raised me in the durty south
A Kountry Gentleman
So you best watch ur mouth
My mama raised me in the durty south

I love a rainy night......OR doncha just love email

First and foremost let me send a SHOUT OUT to my BIL Jeffro (ok so its just Jeff) cause its his BIRTHDAY!!!!!! WOOOT!!!! Your package is in the mail Uncle Paddytale***

OK so last night, in the middle of the FINAL episode of Hell's Kitchen...our local weather guy....Ian on Fox news, kept breaking in to tell us "the rains are a comin'....the rains are a comin'" (OK so it was a tornado warning....same thing). So, Mr. Cheeky and I decided that we were gonna have a little fun. We went on the news channel page and started sending some email.....cause you know its all anonymous and stuff...about how we were a little peeved that they interupted Rock's celebration to show me its gonna rain (but we made it much funnier you know cause its all anonymous and stuff)........HELLO...I have a window...I see the sky lit up like the freakin fourth of July (actually it was a good show, I sorta liked it) I know its gonna rain, I see the tree bent over in the front yard so yeah, I know the winds are a don't have to interrupt Hell's Kitchen to tell me what my own two eyes see. It was funny ya'll we were sending emails and being all redneck and stupid and laughing till we almost cried. Immature? ABSOLUTELY!!! Fun? OH you have NO IDEA. We even had a weather chick 1/4 mile from the house - we could almost see her (but of course a house was in the way). Yeah, we get our kicks from the stupidest of things.....actually. You know, when you submit your phone number for the local weatherman to call you - you have reached a plateau of redneckness that most only hope they will obtain. Wanna see an example of just ONE of the messages we sent.....

For your reading enjoyment:

ian.... dude.... you really need to call me.... 763******* (in the original of course the number was real) now dont sell my number and dont bother my wife.. if she answers just hang up (trust me you don't want to deal with her after the crappy day she has had). so call me and we will my buddy and all but come on call me.. or something... you are very optimistic... please respond to my email so i can contact you directly .... here it is... ***@*** (yeah he put in our real email).... i'm in (our town)..... i promise i'm not drinking.. tonight........bye

i had a very crappy day until now(and for my wife - hers was even worse.... i know it is very sad... that a bad weather night entertains me and the missus and we know round 2 is going nail us... but...... what can i say.. you guys are the best.. if you want to send a news crew to interview me i'll do it ... just dont bother my wife... she aint from around here and she won't like it.......... just trust me.... i only gots one tooffs and its gold so make sure you can focus real good .... ok i'm done..... its up too you now.

****The name Uncle Paddytale comes from the teenage daughter. We were living in GA at the time and she was really young. My sister and her hubs (Jeff) came down for a visit and was taking the daughter out for dairy queen. It was chilly and I told her to wear a jacket, she didn't want to, I made her, she wasn't happy. So off she and Jeff go to the DQ. When they get back he tells how she didn't want to wear her jacket home. And so the daughter lovingly calls him Uncle Tattletale BUT she couldn't clearly say "tattletale" and it came out "Paddytale" and that is what he has been called ever since....hehe

Not much sleep last night. The man child came in every 2 hours to tell us he couldn't sleep and so I guess he decided if he doesn't sleep - neither do we. Yep, in a mood....should probably wait to post the weekend update - in my present might have a little attitude.

Just so perfect for a Friday.....

My Resignation...

I am hereby officially tendering my resignation as an adult. I have
decided I would like to accept the responsibilities of an 8 year-old
I want to go to McDonald's and think that it's a four star restaurant.
I want to sail sticks across a fresh mud puddle and make a sidewalk with rocks.
I want to think M&Ms are better than money because you can eat them.
I want to lie under a big oak tree and run a lemonade stand with my friends on a hot summer's day.
I want to return to a time when life was simple, when all you knew were colors, multiplication tables, and nursery rhymes, but that didn't bother you, because you didn't know what you didn't know and you didn't care. All you knew was to be happy because you were blissfully unaware of all the things that should make you worried or upset.
I want to think the world is fair.
That everyone is honest and good.
I want to believe that anything is possible.
I want to be oblivious to the complexities of life and be overly excited by the little things again.
I want to live simple again.
I don't want my day to consist of computer crashes, mountains of paperwork, depressing news, how to survive more days in the month than there is money in the bank, doctor bills, gossip, illness, and loss of loved ones.
I want to believe in the power of smiles, hugs, a kind word, truth,
justice, peace, dreams, the imagination, mankind, and making angels in the snow.
So . . . here's my checkbook and my car keys, my credit card bills and my 401K statements. I am officially resigning from adulthood.
And if you want to discuss this further, you'll have to catch me first,

...."Tag! You're it."

"I'm a lyrical pimp"***

Ya'll, I have soooooo figured out the key to winning Don't Forget the Lyrics. There is a method well, besides knowing the lyrics - which I DO! I figured it out last night. Its so simple. They are very sneaky in doing what they are doing and once I figured it out I tested my theory and yep, it worked! So, now they just need to CALL ME DANGIT! I can soooo win this thing.

I would still be on the Singing Bee too but its sorta like a gameshow with AD/HD. I would still do it though if they called me.

Other news around Chez Cheeky.....oh not much really. I am going to my first meeting of Phi Delta Scrappa tonight. Yes, its a scrapping sorority. Yes, we have our own colors. Yes, we have t-shirts, sweat shirts, rings, headbands, etc. Yes, its goofy. But since when has THAT stopped me? I am still considered a "pledge" until the initiation event in October. Yes, there is an initiation event. Do ya think I will get hazed?????

Been thinking about my trip with Katie and I am super stoked. But I am afraid its gonna be hot hot hot (and not I am not talking about how we look this time hehe). And so I have been going through my clothes and thinking about what I am going to take and I realized that ummmm "Houston, we have a problem". Somehow, the padding on the rear landing gear has increased and ummm this ain't good ya'll. Ain't good at all!

***If you watched Don't Forget the Lyrics last night you would have seen Wayne calling the contestant's uncle - a lyrical pimp - I thought it was hilarious - but that's just me.

Cheeky - who just realized she hasn't been singing as much as she should these days and well - that needs to change so here we go....some more of the man in PURPLE for you haven't heard this one in a long time.....a little Bat Dance!

"Oh, I got a live one here!"
Get the funk up!

"I just gotta know... are we gonna try 2 love each other?"
"Stop the press - who is that?"

"She's great, isn't she?"

Ooh yeah, ooh yeah

Lookout SC......

Cause this girl and I are headed your way in less than 2 weeks!!!!!!!! That's right, Katie and I are hitting the road. We fly into Charleston for a couple of days and will most likely visit with Patti and if we are lucky this girl too! So first its Charleston and then we are going to head up to Myrtle Beach for a few days in the middle of the week. Shouldn't be too bad since the kids will be back in school down there (I think). Then toward the end of the week - back to Charleston again. Do you think they handle the two of us??

We got our tickets last night. We still have to get the rental car and figure out places to stay. I can usually get good deals when I plan ahead but things are just a little on the pricey side since its such short notice. Katie has been searching for a reasonably priced room so we should have some sort itinerary in the next day or so!

We were thinking of heading to Houston to visit with Shell and the girls and then head to Dallas for a few days but we couldn't decide, so in the end, Katie flipped the coin and Charleston won out!

Now I have already started taking my vitamins because getting sick during this trip IS NOT I repeat IS NOT an option.

Weekend Update....with your host Cheeky!

Friday night. The teenage daughter headed down to the Twins game with her friend and her friend's family. So the man child, Mr. Cheeky and I headed on down to B-dubs for some wings and trivia. I wasn't really into the trivia this time around becuse they were playing the X-games on the big screen (before the Twins game came on)and man child was all into it - yeah, that's it, it was HIM that was into it. No not me. Not at all. Came home with full bellies and proceeded to play Guitar Hero until after midnight. How is it that time flies when you are rockin'?

Saturday - slept in. It was a cool and overcast day. Little drizzley. Goofed around the house in the morning and then went to scout out a new craft store. OMG....I could have droped a small fortune in this store. I was good. I contained myself. I only bought a few things. I can't say that I will be able to do that in the future. (Oh and Shell honey - you HAVE to come here now - the sister store was a BEAD HAVE to come now....HAVE TO...GOT IT? Good....). After I got home, I went down in my room to play a little and created some really cute cards ya'll. Mr. Cheeky and the man child scouted out a new fishing spot and the teenage daughter and her friend went babysitting. That evening, we just whipped up a little something light for dinner and watched The Omen on HBO (or was it Cinemax? I dunno - we just watched it). Then it was round two of Guitar Hero! Yep, once again played until Mad TV came on. Watched that and then it was off to snoozeville.

Sunday - slept in again. Had a lazy morning. It was still cool and overcast so I just snuggled up under a blanket and watched My Cousin Vinny. I *heart* this movie. I haven't seen it all the way through in a while. Joe Pesci really does a great job and makes me giggle. Headed out to the local chain craft store to get my free goodies (from the newsletter) then headed home. Teenage daughter and her friend (yes the same one - you know "L" my MN adopted daughter) went to "L"'s church to work the fund raiser. Man child and Mr. Cheeky went fishing again and I played down stairs while watching Family Guy on DVD. Dinner was quick and easy again. Hotdogs! Yeah not very nutritiuos but oh so yummy!

So it was sort of a cool, lazy, do what you want to kind of weekend. I did notice a few things that need to be changed however - behaviors that need just a little bit of modificaiton that will start this week. Nothing major, just have given them a little too much rope if you know what I mean, time to reel them back in before they get too far out of control ya know?

Such a poser...

Did you notice my comments from yesterday? Did ya? Well go take a look, I will wait go look. Did ya see it? The teenage daughter thinks she is gonna get a birthday MONTH because I did.

Such.a.poser! Well I guess I do lead by example...hehe.

The news has been filled with coverage of the bridge collapse. Enough already. Its a tragedy. Its horrible. I understand that. And for those that have lost loved ones I know its terrible but do we have to say the bridge fell 50 different ways and then repeat it 100 times through out the day? If you have something new then by all means report it but enough is enough already. I don't mean to sound unsympathetic but I don't understand the need to keep repeating ALL.DAY.LONG. ok enough of that... I know that really sounds horrible doesn't it? I don't mean for it to. I think all the effort showing people suffering could be turned to all the good people have done and showing ways others can help.

Had a very busy day yesterday and another one headed my way today. It may take me a little while to get around to your place but I assure you I will.

We are safe!

Thank you for all your calls, emails, and texts. We are all safe and sound (Katie and the Mutt Princess too). How scary is it that just ONE HOUR before this bridge collapsed the teenage daughter was on it. As of right now (8:21pm central) there is one confirmed death from drowning. I hope there are not more but I am sure we will find out as new information becomes available. And for those of you that have known of my strange issues of not sleeping before things like this happen or when family members die (you would know this if you read my 300 things post).....I didn't sleep at all last night. I spent all morning telling Mommy K and Melted Snowballs about how I didn't get a bit of sleep last night and my dear Uncle John was admitted to the hospital today....coincidence??? maybe.....(twilight zone music here....)

Updated to add that there are now 6 confirmed dead - please pray for these families and for those that are injured and for those that are helping in the search and rescue/recovery efforts.
