Updates and such

Thank you guys for all your sweet thoughts about Bubba.  Click here for the latest update.


Excerpt from my post on the Houston Chronicle today entitled Don’t forget the balls“Boys are awesome as long as I don’t have to wash their testicles.”  You should check it out before it gets deleted.


A few people asked for a “how-to” on my the SuperHeroStampNails.  I suggest buying some fake nails, sticking the stamps to them, cutting away the excess and then applying them, because the way I did it (just sticking the stamps on my real nails) lasted a total of about 18 minutes before they all peeled off.  But it was a gloriously kick-ass 18 minutes while it lasted.

  1. As the mother of a boy w/ balls, I would suggest to you, make sure you take those superhero stamp nails off BEFORE you help with the wasing. Actually, that’s good advice for boys AND girls.

  3. My childhood dog developed bone cancer in his front leg when I was in middle school, and my parents paid well into the four figures to get the leg amputated and give him chemotherapy. It worked–he lived for another three years and died of unrelated causes when he was 12. And having a three-legged pet provides endless sources of amusement, seriously. I hope Bubba makes it!

  4. Sorry to hear about Bubba!

    Your BALLS entry just cracked me up!! I could totally relate to that comment. The other weird thing is when your baby sitter tells you that your 3 year old’s winkie is bigger than her grandson’s and her grandson is 2 years older. That is just plain WEIRD!!! (of course she raised 3 sons and has 2 grandsons)

  5. Oh many get well wishes for Bubba.

    We had our Bubba cat, too, but didn’t have a gun to hock for his health care.

    I hear you on pet expenses. We are well into the thousands for the dog, and it only gets more $$$ from here, which I hate to think about on so many levels because it is his LIFE and only money (but money we don’t have).

  6. I will try to send postive vibes to your cat even though I think most cats are complete bastards. Yours must be okay though, considering the fact that he let you put a sombrero on him and that he lets you call him Bubba.

  7. So … you may have a copyright lawsuit on your hands; there is a fabulous nail artist here in Australia who hand paints nail art that looks just like your superhero version.

    Her website is: clarahnails.com ( I love the ‘Despicable Me’ images)

    But she’s awesome and really talented so don’t make her stop, just get royalties!

    Or, come to Australia and have her paint your nails – we’re only 22 Gin and Tonics and a handful of sleeping pills away …
