Shannon vs. Husband part two…the ketchup issue

My husband says I have a habit of asking you to vote on something but telling you which side of the argument is mine.  He said that makes you guys always vote for me so this time I have to just list both sides of the argument without saying whose side is what and then make you vote.  I still think I will win but whatever!

Here is the argument.

This is our ketchup bottle.

Sometimes it is in the refrigerator like this.  And some times it is in there like this.


So here is the argument.

One of us says the bottle has to always be with the label up because the label is facing that way.  One of us says since it has that flat lid it should go in the fridge upside down.  One of us says it should be right side up and then you shake it when you want to use it so you don’t get that drippy stuff.  One of us says you don’t need to shake it if it is upside down the drippy stuff settles on the top.


Who is right?  Does it go label up or down?

This is a huge battle in our house, so this is a very serious vote, whoever wins will finally get to keep the ketchup bottle their way!

It's bad when I'm laughing so hard I almost piss myself while I write this blog

I opened up my e-mail today to find a new ad from Blue Q.  This is what they were selling.  Hand sanitizer.  But not just any hand sanitizer.  The most awesome hand sanitizer EVER INVENTED.

I’ll take ten.  There are about 8 more different slogans too!


Then I browsed a little farther and found


Which led me to this

And I actually own this

Although in high school it would have been this

And I would love to hand out a few sticks of this gum

And no purse is complete with out it’s very own tampon case

Know your flow ladies, Know your flow.


Yeah, this website is dangerous!

Am I really watching this?

The Bachelor.  Really.

Uggg.  I don’t know Brad.  I didn’t watch his season.  I haven’t watched this show in like 8 years or whatever but now I AM TOTALLY TOTALLY SUCKED IN.


I think I have a small crush on Brad.


I think I already hate some girls and like some girls.


I totally want to deck one girl already.


How did I end up Tivo’ing this show?


Side note:  The vlog is still coming, it takes like an hour to make because I have to start over every 35 seconds because I’m so embarrassed by my voice, or my double chin, or omg is that a pimple….so yeah it’s coming.

Ends, beginnings, lists and vlogging

I have a video blog coming up.  It hasn’t been done because I need to be totally alone to do it otherwise I will die of shame and embarrassment while filming it.  But I promise you, the foolishness of my behavior should be enough to keep you on pins and needles.

I went skiing yesterday with my mom and I DIDN’T SUCK.  Kind of happy knowing I have something to do now when my husband snowboards.

Although I walked off with a thumb injury. 



Who injures a thumb skiing?

I’m about 20 pages from finishing Anna Karenina and I’m utterly devastated.  I had an idea of what could happen, a brief thought, a guess, but in the bottom of my heart I never believed it true.  And then it happened and I’m am fucking terrified to read these last few pages.  That being said YOU  MUST READ THIS BOOK.  I admit I read it for two reasons.  One: The former "Snarky Lady" a now friend of mine posted the list of 100 books you must read before you die on her Facebook page.  It started with this list but after googling there are a ton of lists and one of them is 1001 books to read before you die.  The second reason is that it was the book Miley Cyrus was reading in, "The Last Song."  I read the list and was appalled at how few I read so I picked that to start with.  I’ve been miserable lately because I just want to finish it and it seems like everything is getting in my way.  It’s been a long time since I found a book that I just couldn’t take my mind off of.  Not to mention it’s been forever that I read a book that I couldn’t predict the ending even if I tried.

This has now led me to create on of those Bucket List thingies.  But how many things do you put on one of those lists?  Do you always add to it?  Or make it once and thats that?  Can you remove things if you change your mind?  Someone needs to publish a bucket list guide for Dummies.

Either way I am officially adding, "read the 100 books on (a list I finally choose) to my bucket list.

And finally, I grew up about 40 years today and "most" of my pink hair is gone:

There are still hints of pink up close, and next week we will lighten it some.  Don’t worry though, like I said, the hidden hints of pink are there so all is not list.

Be on the look out for the video blog!
