Damned If I Do, Damned If I Don't

It seems like there is someone (or several someones, at times) who can find a way to rain on my parade here at the Glamorous life.

I can post a picture of a KitchenAid stand mixer or I can post a picture of my cleavage and someone always has something negative to say.

If you check out the header up there and the sidebar to your left, it has MY name all over it and my blog name. MINE. That means, I post what I like and if you don't like it, don't let the mouse hit your ass on the way out.

After all, I was raised with the belief that if "You don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all."

Plus, I'm just over here blathering about my life in my own little "Christmas Letter To The Family" type way, so it's not like I'm unearthing anything super dishy or controversial.

I am not a normal person. I do weird things. Sometimes, I do them just for shits and giggles.

If you don't like that philosophy, then please find another blog to haunt. There are approximately 40 million of them to read. I don't have any special corner here.

Now, please go wish my girl, Buzzardbilly a Happy Birthday!

And remember:


  1. Yay!!!!!!!

    Love Ya, baby. See! I told you we were separated at birth. Hmph!xx

  2. oh ick! what a hysterical (albeit disgusting) picture! keep rocking with your crazy self... most of us love it!

  3. I love your stuff and you too.......dont change and yes for regular viewing of the girls- times three of course xxx

  4. Some people are so insecure that they push others down to try to lift themselves up.

    Pay no mind to the haters! Keep on keepin' on. I love to read what you have to say.

  5. I believe your fans out number your detractors by about million to one. So try not to worry about THAT 1 and keep up the great work for the rest of us!

    Its not about the kitchen appliances or cleavage, although both are interestin. Its about you and family life. You have problems just like me!

    Have a great day!

  6. I really don't understand people who snark on other peoples' blogs. They obviously have nothing else to do. Your blog is awesome -- cleavage and all. Fuhgeddaboutit.

  7. Who was complaining about the cleavage??? Are they insane? LOL...
    Now the mixer on the other hand, I find that mixing things with an old board I find in the back yard adds some personality to whatever dish you are cooking, but that is just me ;)

  8. My dearest Hausfrau......
    Don't listen to the "rainer's-on-the-parader's". Screw em!!
    Sweetie, this is your venue to speak your mind and your truth's. People don't have to agree with you. This is America!! You can always gently remind them that if they wish to be insulting and don't like the content of your post, they can just move along to the next blog and be insulting...and, there's always the little "reject" and "delete" button you can hit if they do make a lil nasty comment. Some people are just unhappy and don't understand people who ARE happy.
    You're not warped my dear friend...
    you have a wonderfula sense of humor that I for one totally get :).
    Now........bring the girls out for a photo op.......we haven't seen em in a while :).......
    "Blog on, blog on with hope in your heart and you'll never blog alone"........

    Steady On My Friend!!

  9. One reason I love you so much is your ability to be real and not take the crap of this world so seriously. Haters are just envious of your ability to be yourself, so they hide behind their screens reading about what they will never be.
    Here is to farts and giggles.

  10. Natalie - I suppose so! :-)

    LL - Everytime I see that pic, I just laugh even mnore! Makes ya go "hmmmm".

    Lisa - Oh, trust me, the "girls" will have plenty of photo ops.

    DA - Thanks... just feeling a bit frustrated as of late. May be PMS, too. LOL.

    Al - Thanks - I hope you have a great day too!

    Rebecca - It makes me wonder, too....

    Ron - An old board, huh? I'll try anything once.

    Reggie - The "girls" made an appearance at the end of yesterday's post. ;-)

  11. Robyn - the only thing I'm serious about is being a dumbass! :-)

  12. People were dissing the girls? Well, I have to admit I was dissing them too, but only cuz I'm totally jealous!

    I am constantly amazed at people who don't take responsibility for their own actions. If you don't like the program, change the channel. Simple as that.

    I too was raised right. If I can't say something nice, I won't comment on a blog. Wait ... none of this was nice, was it? Well, it wasn't directed at you, ETW. I got your back! And your front too ... someone has to protect those puppies!

  13. Dissenters who snark need a nice, hot, steamin' cuppa Shut the Fuck Up.

    So there. ;)

  14. the ignorant have to feel important by spouting off once in a while. That's why we have the benefit of the "delete" button. I am positive I don't say everything that appeals to everyone - but this is a terrific way of being "me." Enjoy it - we love your posts.

  15. ETW,

    We're both damned if we do and damned if we don't because there are a couple of people around these parts who blog but suck at it so they just go around trying to making people who blog and actually get visitors, friends, and comments to feel like they suck so that the shit-talking shit-writers feel better about themselves the cheap and easy way: by pissing on someone else's parade. Fuck 'em.

    You've NEVER been one to let other people's opinions get you down. Don't you dare start now.

    You have what 70-some followers?! That's not a sign of being damned or sucking, my friend. That's a sign that some folks get jealous of your success. If the fun people shut up everytime some pinhead put them down, this world wouldn't be worth living in because it was be so fucking boring!

    Keep on doing what you're doing. It's working. Thanks for the Birthday plug too.

  16. I like you for your normalness & weirdness - don't ever change (Not that I think you will!) :) xoxxo

  17. That is freaking hilarious. I'm with you though... if you don't have something nice to say then just SHUT IT! Or shove it... either way!

    Hugs - Tiff

  18. MMMMMMMMM.....Your making me think, if cleveage offended somebody you should do a white tight tee-shirt with beamers, no bra !!!! Now that'll really get them going. You know what I say...If you got flaunt um !!! I love your girls, not many woman who have kids have a great rack like yours !!! Screw those negative f'nuts. Just jealous.

  19. I always hated that inspirational poster....so uncouth. At least flush.

  20. I guess I'm a little clueless, because I just read all your comments from yesterday, and I couldn't figure out which was negative.

    That picture is funny. Gross, for sure, but funny. :)

  21. can you take a pic of the boobs and the mixer? it might give me a stroke but that'd be worth it.

  22. Crazy Mo - You totally crack me up!

    Juanuchis - LOL!

    themom - True, there is that delete button. :-)

    BB - I totally agree. Thanks. :-)

    TGG - No, I won't go changing...doo doo da da da. ;-)

    Tiff - You got it!

    The Girl - I buy good bras. LOL.

    Red - I know! What was she thinking??

    3C - not yesterday...I'm just ranting about "in general". Ya know?

    fattie20xl - That might give me a stroke trying to get the angle right! LOL.

  23. Ummm... yeah what the Girl said. A tight white tee shirt with Beamers.... sans bra. Totally just to teach those haters a lesson! No other reason of course just to teach the whiners...

  24. Aw, honey... Don't let the haters get you down. You know that there are those of us who love reading what you have to say. You DO have a wicked sense of humor. And a beautiful rack!

  25. The 'girls' are a marvelous specimen..screw all the naysayers! If they don't like what you post then they can find something else to read. Us faithful readers appreciate your candor...it's very refreshing!


  26. You know my philosophy on those that talk 'smack'...right? ;)

  27. Those who talk sh*t don't know sh*t, don't have sh*t and won't ever be sh*t! Put that in your toilet and flush it! :D

    I'm Hacksaw and I approve of this comment.

  28. Sometimes it's harder to let things roll off your back, huh. :( Wuu...now can I say something negative??? I could have gone all day without seeing an unflushed toilet. lol And, naturally I just HAD to be eating my Spaghettios! :)

  29. Well I'm embarrassed to say I haven't been over in a few posts so I've some catching up to do. Someone "boo'd the boobs??

  30. I totally agree with what you wrote....and that picture is too freakin funny!

  31. Up with boobs!
    Down with pricks :(
    Don't go changing!!

  32. Who was mean on your blog?! Let me at 'em!

  33. I have been on the receiving end of some grief from my faithful readers when I have pulled something down that generated too much controversy so I know what you mean. Sometimes it just isn't worth trying to explain the joke to people who want your head on a platter for finding something amusing that they find horrifying. Attack the opinion, not the person. There is nothing wrong with disagreeing.

    However, I do like that line from Steal Magnolias "If you dont' have anything nice to say...come sit by me."

  34. Don't let the mouse hit you in the ass......

    Love it.

    I'm coming back for more...

  35. Was that damn Bob( aka, Dick) back here again?
    Dick-Bob, you're a bit of an ass, don't you think?
    Who doesn't like breasts ?!
    For God sake Dick-Bob, where did your first meal come from?
    Hilarious ETW, "don't let the mouse...
    Really though, what kind of dick do you have to be to actually bother to go over to someone's blog, then open their comments section, then bother to say something ignorant or spiteful, well, I guess Dick-Bob could answer that. F-you Dick-Bob.

  36. okay, I missed what went down...but that toilet pic is DISCUSTING! LOL

    I now put my comments on moderations just cuz of this!

    You just keep being you! The sexy, hot housewife!

  37. Growing up, my mom always told me to play nice. I may not always play nice but I have learned to keep my mouth shut when necessary! Now if I can only learn to stand up for myself!

  38. Do you need Momma to come up there and kick some ass??

  39. That picture makes me howl!
    Sorry you feel picked on. It seems some people have a little too much time on their hands huh?
    You write/post/whatever you like on your blog and if people don't like it they can leave...and they better not take the wine or they'll be feeling my foot in their crotches! ;o)

  40. Ron - Just for the lesson, huh?

    Trisha - I'm just whining. I'll be okay!

    Chandra - Thanks, girl!

    Efen - I know, I know.. ;-)

    Hacksaw - You're the greatest!

    Honeywine - Sorry about the pic, but it makes me LOL everytime I see it.

    Carolyn - I'm just venting in general, nothing specific.

    TentCamper - Thanks and yep, I love the pic too.

    Ms Barbara Jane - you guys know I'm not capable of change. LOL.

    Mary - it's more just like a random vent of sorts. :-)

    Christine - I agree, and welcome! I've been meaning to make it over your way, now it's super easy!

    Michelle - Welcome to the madhouse! Hopefully, no more whining for a bit...

    Powdergirl - not that one, no. But a few in general things.

    SWC - I know - the pic is too nasty, but it makes me laugh.

    ODS - sometimes, it feels good to let it all out... :-)

    Momma - I think I vented my spleen. I'll be ok.

    Penelope - Damn skippy on the wine! LOL..

  41. I do much of the same..I am weird too and I enjoy doing it for my own humor. Sometimes I wish I could block some people from my blog..the negative people who had a problem with me posting a picture of myself in my jacuzzi tub with bubbles up to my chin AS IF you could see something. It is your blog and you can say/do what you want! Keep the cleavage shots coming girl!

    And love the myspace pic that cracked me up!!

    I hope your day is going better now! :)

  42. That's one of my all time favorite internet pictures. Anyway, you're clearly doing things right given your number of followers - there will always be people who wake up looking for something to complain about though.

    That's pretty much their problem.

  43. HA I've seen that MS pic before - ew! LOL! You ALWAYS bring a smile to my face when I read your blogs and hearing that someone dumps on you for what you post irritates me - it's NONE of their business WHAT you write about! So keep being you, it's the best and only thing for you to do : )

  44. Please tell what kind of bra you wear.

    I need one of THOSE.

    Also? I think that your red mixer ROCKS.

  45. Hey,, You can post whatever you want,, hey I'll never give you a hard time for showing cleavgae...lol BTW who made your header?
    Cst KO

  46. yeah...what everyone else said...plus my own little "screw them who don't like it" to top it off...I like your appliances and your cleavage!

    you're educational ...ABCs...Appliances, blogging, cleavage...what's not to like?

  47. That picture is so gross and funyn at the same time. I love your blog.

  48. I guess they weren't taught "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all." by their parents as we were. We were also taught MYOB - Mind Your Own Business.

    You do what you want - it's your blog and if someone doesn't like it, they don't have to read it. Morons.

  49. Lisha - Much better now, thanks!

    nick - Didn't you email that to me? I got it from someone. Still makes me LOL.

    Margaret - Hee! You said "dumps"! I know, doesn't take much to amuse me....thanks for your input. :-)

    Renn- I'll email you and yeah, the mixer is pretty awesome. :-)

    Cst KO - My husband drew and designed the header. I foresee more cleavage in the future.

    Warren - thanks, buddy. I knew I could count on you. :-)

    Gigi - I love your blog too!

    Kathleen - I plan to change nothing. :-)

  50. That is flippin' HIGHlarious. Had to go back through and read past comments...LOL!!!!

    You rock. Screw 'em.

  51. ETW -- Damn, I'm off masterbating in the closet for a few weeks and some wanker gets his willie yanked over your posts? What a loser.

    You know, the girls could be an economic stimulous package all to themselves.

    Just take eBay bids on a wet T-shirt photo.


  52. I just can't imagine anyone wanting to be mean to you - you are so sweet!

  53. Some people just suck.
    I have no idea why these people want to read and then bother you. They really should get a life. Love the photo!

  54. eek...I commented on both posts, hope I didn't offend...I can't quite remember what I said and I am too lazy to search. If I come off negative it isn't, it is just in jest.

  55. I missed the nasty comments.
    I agree with what everyone else is saying.
    People who make nasty remarks are just idiots who have nothing better to do.

  56. Being the self-appointed King of the Lurkers I and appalled by their attitudes. Between you, the goddess, buzzardbilly, and the surf report I find the most genuine humor and amusing life stories. Plus the chance to see "the ladies" or the goddesses "toys" makes missing regular television not so painfull

  57. I know what it's about and I read it anyway. If I didn't wanna, I wouldn't. You just rock on with yo' bad self ETW. FMD is on your side.
    BTW, I'm totally stealing the myspace thing. Those posters are great stuff, aren't they?
