A to Z – Geez…

More specifically-

Geez O Pete
LOCATION: Detroit
TRANSLATION: An exclamation similar to “Goodness Gracious.”
Presumably, this term is related to Jesus and St. Peter.

Who knew? This is not at all what my “G” post was going to be about but whilst scanning Google for an appropriate meme I came across this lit’l gem of wisdom and thought I’d share.
Is the saying “Geez O Pete” really just a Michigan thing?
Please weigh in with your answers because I’m pretty sure it’s not but what do I know?
My real “G” post was going to be, “Geez O’ Pete” is that big ‘ol preggo giraffe EVER going to have that baby giraffe??? I’ve read that giraffes stay pregnant for close to 15 months. NO THANKS! I’ve tuned into the giraffe cam once or twice and it was like watching paint dry or the grass grow. For a while, I thought it was just a big ‘ol internet April Fool’s Day joke but it’s been going on and on and on and apparently, it’s the real deal. Criminey…

For those of you interested in watching the nothingness – at the moment – of ‘April the Giraffe’ NOT giving birth, here’s a link.
As predicted by our sometimes right, most of the time wrong, weather guys, we actually did have steady rain today and it is a little more than chilly. I could almost turn the heat on but I won’t. Just gonna’ wear sweaters n’ socks n’ fuzzy slippers, drink lots of hot coffee and snuggle with the pup.
I actually spent very little time snuggling under the covers today altho Netflix was on all day. Mostly I played with my girly toys and made more personalized mugs, wine glasses, and t-shirts. I’ll post some pics when I take some. I think tomorrow I will work on totes.

IN OTHER NEWS: – Just when I was looking forward to eating more salad…
“Two people were recommended for post-exposure rabies treatment after a consumer in Florida reported finding a dead bat in a packaged salad mix, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Saturday.”
You can read all about it, here.

Happy Saturday folks! Enjoy!
Mimi’s quote for the day –

I BLAME KINDERGARTEN

I’ve been sick. It’s contagious. You can read about the inconsiderate asshole I caught it from here. And ya’ know, the more I’ve thought about it the more I’m convinced that we learned this inconsiderate behavior in kindergarten. Seriously.
I blame kindergarten.
leaves barSharing is a big deal in kindergarten. There was a whole list of things to share in kindergarten.
***Share your crayons.
***Share your paste. – I’m old. –
***Share your paints.
***Share the swings, the teeter totter, the jump rope. Your bat, your ball, your mitt.
***Share EVERYTHING!

Yeah. Thanks, kindergarten.
You should’ve had a list of things you DON’T share.

Here, let me help ya’ out with this one.
Top of the list????
***Don’t share your fucking germs!!!!
***Don’t share your cold.
***Don’t share your flu.
***Don’t share your diarrhea.
***Don’t share your ringworm.
***Don’t share your pinkeye.
***Don’t share your fucking lice!!!

I’m pretty sure parents everywhere would appreciate my list.
What they won’t appreciate?? Missing work to clean up shit and vomit from every member in their household including themselves!
leaves barFortunately, I think I’m on the tail end of this “bug.” It’s moved to my ears and I’ve still got one stuffed nostril and one runny nostril. I’m thinking about shoving a tampon up the runny nostril except what happens if I pull it out and then that nostril is all stretched to hell and doesn’t go back because I’m fucking old and your skin doesn’t bounce back like it used to in your 20’s/30’s??? Then I’m stuck with one big ‘ol, floppy Kevin Bacon, cannon sized nostril!
Not even kidding. Kevin Bacon has the biggest fucking nostrils ever.
See?? GIANT nostrils!
leaves barHere’s how you can do your part and not be an inconsiderate asshole during cold and flu/snotty “bug” season.
If you can, stay home and get yourself/child better.
Cover when you cough/sneeze.
Wash your hands, wash your hands, wash your hands.
Make sure your kids cover when they cough/sneeze and that they wash their hands too!
It’s soooooo important.
Kids pass this shit around like it’s a joint at Woodstock! Everybody gets a hit whether you want one or not!

Schools and daycares are one giant petri dish of all things contagious.
I’m not saying spray your kid down with Lysol but ya’ know…. You spray them with ‘Off’ in the summer time..
It’s a thought..
