potluck that says “supersize me”…if potlucks could talk

I am back from vacation and back online.   It is Monday which can only mean…

…it is potluck time.

Oh ya.

Let’s sing together today! Turn up the volume in your head and belt this out at the top of your lungs with me…

You know our potluck was meant to be
the kind of potluck that lasts forever

and i want you here with me
from tonight until the end of time

You should potluck, everywhere i go
your always on my mind, in my heart , in my soul

Baby, Your the meaning in my life
your the inspiration
you bring feeling to my life
your the inspiration
wanna have potluck with you
I wanna have you hear me sayin
no one needs you more than I need you

and I know, yes I know that its plain to see
we love to potluck when we’re together

now I know, that I need you here with me
from tonight until the end of time

You should potluck, everywhere i go
your always on my mind, in my heart , in my soul

Your the meaning in my life
your the inspiration
you bring feeling to my life
your the inspiration
wanna have potluck with you
I wanna have you hear me sayin
no one needs you more than I need you

Let’s talk about something that deserves its own blog post! (Thanks Heidi)

We returned home to the very, very sad discovery that Scooter, aka Scratchy, our cat was missing.   He had a rarely used cat door which he occasionally used to sun his belly in our fenced backyard.   Obviously, he got a little braver and ventured out…

Recent neighborhood sightings of bobcats and coyotes don’t bode well for Scooter’s return.

The boys are devastated in the way you are devastated when the world’s most annoying cat who worked his way deep into your heart goes missing.

Ugh.   I am sad too in the way you are sad when the world’s most annoying cat who worked his way deep into your heart goes missing.

What did Shauna quit now? (Thanks Shauna)

I would like to make this declaration to Shauna…

IT BETTER NOT BE POTLUCK.

Thanks.   I feel much better.

Let’s find out who is commenter of the week!

In response to Chirp. Chirp.:

Dude, that is what guns are for in Texas. Chirp, chirp, BANG.” — Texan Mama

Not only does Texan Mama win bragging rights to Comment Nirvana for the next week…she also wins a PRIZE!   Thanks to the generosity of Little Debbie who I stalked until they agreed to be an unofficial potluck sponsor after I tasted these:

She will be receiving a box of Little Debbie’s new Petites – actually 6 boxes.

My (and blog-Stedman’s) favorite flavor is the Red Velvet cake which tastes good pretty much anytime day or night…and might have been involved in a tussle over the last package.

Oh!   And they have graciously agreed to send out a few more boxes for future Comment Nirvana winners.   Thanks!

The word I am working into conversation this week is…

Heebie Jeebie.

Ok, that is two words but I googled, “what word should I work into conversation this week?” and ended up on a post that described words you should work into poker games…donkey, donk, and river rat.   Y’all know I love a good game of poker, but those seemed pretty obvious and so when I noticed that the post’s writer’s name was Heebie Jeebie and that seemed perfect.

So there you have it.   Play along!

And now for a new feature entitled, Holly gives advice to companies who say “Who is Holly?”

I have spent 6 of the last 10 days at amusement parks – both Six Flags over Texas and Legoland.

Both are very clean parks except for one area…

The displays that you ride through – you know the ones that you go on a boat, or a train or a rollercoaster through?   For some reason these are disgustingly dusty and piled with used gum, pebbles and anything else parkgoers unloaded while riding by.

EWWW! Please, just take a few minutes and a vacuum, dust and de-gum these rides.   thankyouverymuch.

Last week’s potluck participant winner is….

*drum roll*

Natalie from Boingerhead!

Natalie will be receiving a fabulous Morning Madness Spa Basket courtesy of the unofficial potluck sponsor Scrubbing Bubbles featuring their fabulous new product Extend-A-Clean.   I love Extend-A-Clean ‘cuz it seems to keep things cleaner longer…and has a faint scent that reminds me of those orange chewable aspirin that I loved as a kid.   Again, I approached Scrubbing Bubbles for this prize because I love the product and they are super sweet to play along here in potluckland.

Alrighty! Here is where you can join in on the potluck-a-palooza.   I have been re-doing the How to Throw A Potluck page if you are uncertain as to what is expected of you, please take a look at it if you are new to the potluck scene.   The link you add below needs to link directly to YOUR potluck or it will be removed ASAP.

What is in Holly’s Fruit Bowl?

–three sad looking potatoes, a bunch of faux bananas that blog-Stedman used at Halloween with his gorilla suit, two cloves of garlic, a very weird looking orange and 5 passes to Legoland good for 3 months purchased through Costco

May your Monday be full of inspiration, your rides be sans used gum and the day be heebie jeebie free.

Happy Monday everyone.

  1. i saw a comment you wrote somewhere in bloggerdom, i think it was on some random blogfrog community forum (i have been on my laptop for like 3 hours straight and my brain is not functioning all too well right now). anyway, you made me laugh, which is good–although now i’m thinking maybe you’re not really that funny, i just am super crazy–and so i came to your blog. and i love it. the end.

  2. Sorry about Scooter. I’m hoping to get the kids to a Legoland someday. They are building one in FL now.

  3. Ok, I’ve got a potluck a-brewin’. (Cause that’s what potlucks do – they “a-brew.”)

    Which I will post after I get home from work.

    That work thing. Always cramping my bloggy style.

  4. OK, I like Heebie Jeebie, but I’m more fond of two of your other words, when combined, make an interesting noun or adjective. “Donkey Donk”

    “The dog left a donkey donk on the carpet.”

    “That roast is burned and looks like donkey donk” (not A donkey donk, ’cause that would be inapropriate)

    My husband has a….well….never mind…..getting back to my household chores now.

  5. OH..and I meant to say…SOOOO sorry about kitty! Have you found him yet? 🙁

  6. Ha! I will be doing my potluck tomorrow. Count on it.

  7. I’m so sorry about your kitty, I accidentally slammed the door on one of our cats tail’s yestereday and I was/am devastated.

  8. Yaaayyy!!! I am so excited!!

    heebie jeebie is actually one of my tags – whenever the kids do that limp-boned jelly-spined drop and wiggle out of your arms tantrum thing with all the impending-death screaming? That’s a heebie-jeebie tantrum in this house 🙂
