Guys, I just got up. Thank goodness The Boy doesn't have early morning cross country on Fridays, or I'd be in Horrible Mother zone. I guess I was a hell of a lot more tired after this week than I realized. (Um, the Mr. came home last nigh from a business trip, so we don't have a repeat of "nutella in a bag" for lunch, or something. I think. At least I know everyone bathed last night...)

I'm all out of sorts and zombiefied (sans a liking for braaaaaains) so I want to do a random poll. --O-- (I'm too tired to put my arms all the way up.)

Poll #1276146 Randomosity

I plan on attending WriterCon in 2009.

Still unsure
not if you're going!

Two trains leave the station at 11 am, one traveling at 45 mph and the other at 60 mph. The trains:

have to go different speeds because they're on the same track.
...what are trains?
math is hard.
I like shoes!
waffles. The answer is ALWAYS waffles.

on a scale of one to ten, one being one and ten being the higher number:

I (the poll taker) am a ten.
Stoney, you've tried this joke so many times and no one has gotten it.
which makes me sad.
Seriously, has no one gotten that i've not assigned a VALUE to the numbers?
I (the poll taker) am a 3.


all of the above, chicky bow.

Stoney, I will go with you to the Texas State Fair, the largest of its kind. And I will:

try the chicken friend bacon. It's got to be as good as bacon chocolate, right?
try the deep fried cappuccino. You said last year it was amazing.
eat anything that comes on a stick. EVERYTHING tastes better on a stick.
will go look at the butter sculptures and the quilts.
love looking at canned goods and seeing the blue ribbons.
who said Midway, HEY-O!
are there carnies? Do I have to touch them? No.
I don't have to touch the carnies? I AM IN.
I just want to see World O'Hot Tubs!
three words: Fletcher's Corny Dogs. I'll get the keys.

Seriously, Stoney.

go back to bed.
drink more coffee.
get a massage.
do all of the above.
do all of the above and TAKE ME WITH YOU.

lynnenne is in town on business so we're hanging out tonight with tequila, good food, and loads of smart and funny conversation, because Lynne is awesome. So I've got that going for me, which is nice. *streeeeeeetch*

[eta] All the nos to Writercon are making me sad in my heart-meat.

Random poll-y type polls are the best kinds of polls EVER!!!!
Oct. 10th, 2008 03:29 pm (UTC)
Hahahaa, I know! They are my favorite kinds.
Oct. 10th, 2008 03:19 pm (UTC)
Just don't fall asleep in your soup!

Maybe you should wear waterproof mascara. And, um. A ponytail.
Oct. 10th, 2008 03:29 pm (UTC)
Fortunately I have no soup, only a dry piece of toast!

*butters face in case*
Oct. 10th, 2008 03:19 pm (UTC)
That was a fun poll. Apparently, I needed a fun poll today, because it akshually made me stop coughing for about three whole minutes. Thank you!
Oct. 10th, 2008 03:30 pm (UTC)
Coughing?! WOE IS YOU! *rubs Vicks between your shoulder blades*

Oct. 10th, 2008 03:32 pm (UTC)
If I didn't know better, I'd swear you were going to the Minnesota State Fair.
Oct. 10th, 2008 03:38 pm (UTC)
There's only one State Fair for me!
Oct. 10th, 2008 03:35 pm (UTC)
COFFEE!!! Coffee is always the appropriate answer. Though, I must not be as much of an addict as I thought given how ridiculously easy it was to cut myself off from it when I found out I was pregnant. And that I've survived (and not killed my husband or my son) in the interim.
Oct. 10th, 2008 03:39 pm (UTC)
Ah, the pull of motherhood is stronger than almost all addictions. Trust me. You'll come back to it's dark, rich goodness. I'll sve a cup for you. :D
Oct. 10th, 2008 03:37 pm (UTC)
You can even have my share of the coffee.

Morning unnecessary. Urg.
Oct. 10th, 2008 03:39 pm (UTC)
i will gladly have your share! *mainlines*
Oct. 10th, 2008 03:47 pm (UTC)
Make out with Lynne for me please. ;)
Oct. 10th, 2008 03:54 pm (UTC)

SHALL DO! (Srsly, she has the MOST BEAUTIFUL SMILE. It won't be a hardship. *G*)

*pouts* there is no hot chocolate. Some of us can't have coffee, Stoney. Some of us are now crying at our desks because we've been excluded from the fine world of hot beverages (I'm pretending tea isn't there right now). *stamps foot* Hot chocolate, Stoney. Hot chocolate!!!

I wish I could go back to bed. I have to be up by 8 tomorrow, which is normal, but I like the option of laying in bed doing nothing you know? But places to be, things to do.
Oct. 10th, 2008 03:56 pm (UTC)

I like being melodramatic.

Oooh, I like the option of sleeping in, too, and Sunday is my only day that it's feasible. I have to be up at 6 tomorrow as The Boy has a meet at 7am. *cries* Let's take an afternoon nap. I'll arrange the pets, you slip in and spoon, k?

Poll of RANDOM. You made me flash back to last weekend at the Fair! I think perhaps I got sick because I didn't eat enough fried foods...Yes. That's it. ROUND TWO. Bring on the Fletcher's. And Carnies. Hells YEA.

Oct. 10th, 2008 04:05 pm (UTC)
See, the fried foods are what help you grow nice and strong. Or it puts hair on your chest. Either way = BELLE OF THE BALL.

Fletcher's corny dogs. Seriously, is there anything better? NO. (They do ONE MILLION DOLLARS in sales at the ONE STAND in front of Big Tex. Man. That's a lot of corny dogs.) I want to try the chicken fried bacon. That's the best part of the fair, all the redonk foods!

In conclusion: WAFFLES.

Seriously- I would go to the beef barn and see if I could talk someone into leasing me a yearling polled shorthorn bull for next spring, with a guarantee to return it fat, happy, and with the owner's choice of one heifer and one bull calf, because I am just that desperate.

Fairs for me are places of insane levels of work, almost no sleep, incredible cold and heat (usually on the same day) and constant wheeling and dealing.

Julia, and the beef market makes the stock market look sane and I'm tired of half angus calves and no purebred replacement heifers.
Oct. 10th, 2008 04:34 pm (UTC)
oooooh, the beef barn here is ASTOUNDING. I love going to all the animal barns. The fancy chickens! The turkey vultures! The piglets and emus and goats and llamas and all of them!

My 'still unsure' to WC is probably a 'no', alas. My bonus, which usually goes to finance such things, is probably going to have to go towards household finances this year.

Oct. 10th, 2008 04:34 pm (UTC)

Aww, I hope something works out so I can see you there. *hugs*
Oct. 10th, 2008 04:31 pm (UTC)
Chicken Fried Bacon??? I am in.
Oct. 10th, 2008 04:35 pm (UTC)
DUDE. I know, right?!?! how can that be anything short of fan-freaking-tastic?!
Oct. 10th, 2008 04:37 pm (UTC)

a butter cow!
Oct. 10th, 2008 04:39 pm (UTC)
THEY SHOULD MAKE A BUTTER COW!! Last year it was a life-sized Elvis, and the year before it was Marilyn Monroe with her skirt blowing up.

Oct. 10th, 2008 04:37 pm (UTC)
I haven't the money for Writercon. Wanna sponser me?
Oct. 10th, 2008 04:39 pm (UTC)
Oooh, are they going to do that again this year? I think that really helped a lot of folks!

You have NO idea how much I've been thinking about calling to get schedule a massage for tomorrow! Maybe you're SIGN! You're already a sign about the coffee. *cough*

Oh! I tried the apple/onion/brat thing on Wednesday and it was so good and a huge hit with everybody - EVEN NEPHBO! So you're golden, man!

Are you reading anything good on the Kindle? I WANTS STUFF!
Oct. 10th, 2008 04:44 pm (UTC)
I AM A SIGN. Swm, go get a massage. And make it an hour and a half. Don't you need that extra thirty minutes? Just think of how lovely and rubbery your legs will feel afterward, how relaxed your back will be. *dreamy sigh*

Oh, I am so happy to know that the dish was a hit for you!! (Haha, I actually worried that you'd be all *gross face* over it. Heee.)

Kindle reading: the new edition of "The World Is Flat," Slaughterhouse Five, a mess of Discworld books (like, all of them - converted files, ahem) and I just dl'd "Generation Kill."

What about you? Does there need to be an email with an attachment? *shifty eyes*
Oct. 10th, 2008 04:40 pm (UTC)
Mmm, improbable fried things. They had deep-fried Coke at the Arkansas State Fair last year. I could totally get behind some fried cappucino. *whispers* Um, what if I want to touch carnies? Where's my ticky box?

Forget I said that.

Have big fun with Lynne!

ETA that I was thinking about the Nutella-in-a-baggie incident just the other day as I scrabbled around desperately for child lunch items on grocery day.

Oct. 10th, 2008 04:47 pm (UTC)
hahaha, the fried coke debuted at the Texas fair a few years ago, and it was TOTALLY good!! The fried cappuccino was delicious. Fried pastry with cappucchino ice cream on top and a coffee syrup. So... you know. Round about, but soooo good.

Hahahaha, last year I had southernbangel and marenfic with me at the fair, and we saw this one carny that was actually hot and GOT A NUMBER from a really pretty girl. It was apocalyptic-level craziness.

HEEE, you remembered the Nutella story? Bwah!! Oh, dads. bringing the cringe/lulz since the creation of marriage.

*fails at any other form of wit or conversation because she has a paper due in 13 hrs, a paper that has not been started*
Oct. 10th, 2008 04:53 pm (UTC)
Well gitcher self on up here, I got room! Screw that paper. What, your life/career/mental health depends on it? ;)

D'aww, I'm sorry you have a paper that's giving you agita. *shoulder rubs*
Oct. 10th, 2008 05:39 pm (UTC)
You had me at "nutella in a bag".
*ded from LOLz*

I want to go to WriterCon! And eat food on a stick!
Can I do both at the same time? Because that would be happy-making x a gergillion. :D

Have a fab evening with lynnenne.
Oct. 10th, 2008 06:25 pm (UTC)
Oh my god, the Mr. is NOT allowed to ever be that lazy again. BOYS!!

I think they should have a "foods on sticks" booth at WC, fo sho!
(Deleted comment)
Oct. 10th, 2008 06:26 pm (UTC)
Make waffles, fry up sausages, roll them up IN the waffles, and put them on a stick! Two great tastes that taste great together!!

Oct. 10th, 2008 08:58 pm (UTC)
Since my company dresses Big Tex, we get unlimited tickets to the state fair...2 cans of food for the food bank each. I will be there Sunday (the best day to go, the day AFTER TX/OU (all the big rowdies are sleeping it off). We will be doing all of the above....and if you want to go, let me know, I might just have a couple extra tickets.
Oct. 10th, 2008 09:00 pm (UTC)
Y'all dress him? *salutes* It don't get much more Texan than that, I tell ya. :D

You know, the kids get free tickets, and we usually bring cans for the food bank, too. That's very sweet of you! I agree: Sunday after TX/OU is the BEST day to go!

My brain is all whizzy now ... butter, trains, carnies, coffee, fried butter quilts ... buh?

*tugs you back to bed*

ETA: I was hungry when I woke up, but "heart-meat" put me off my breakfast for 2 hours!

Mmmmmm, back to bed. It's the next day and I'm STILL tired. And... glad I helped you on an unnecessary diet?

*sends delicious foods your way to make up for it*
Oct. 11th, 2008 12:08 am (UTC)
Have fun with Lynne and at the fair (FAIR!) and yay!
Oct. 11th, 2008 03:21 am (UTC)
Why are people not going to Writercon? Why, I ask you?

I am hoping to go assuming the stock market does not put my firm out of business.

And the answer is always 17. I answered waffles, but let's be real.

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.

Time Wot It Is
