Have you ever wondered?

Have you ever wondered what the real reasons are for insomnia?

Have you ever wondered what your dog dreams about?

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be the opposite sex during an orgasm?

Have you ever wondered why Doritos taste so damn good?

Have you ever wondered why you like some people, and others just give you the Heebie Jeebies?

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have a threesome?

Have you ever wondered what I would be like Drunk? (Trust me, I"m a whole lot of fun!)

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to take acid? (I have, but never had the nerve to try it. Always too afraid of the consequences.)

Have you ever wondered what the real difference is between dog people and cat people?

Are there squirrel people too? What about rabbit people, and ferret people? (Me personally, I'm a people people.)

Have you ever wondered why the word people looks so weird. (It really is an odd looking word. Who the hell came up with this word? PEOPLE. I am totally freaked out by it's spelling right now.)

Have you ever wondered what it would be like if the world really was flat instead of round? Would we fall off the edge like people thought we would, our would it be like a revolving belt on a tread mill and we would just roll on over to the other side?

Have you ever wondered what makes the sky blue? (Well, I actually know what makes it blue, but I"m not going to explain it here in the frame of mind that I'm in.)

Are you wondering if I'm drunk right now? (I'm not, just waiting for some codeine to kick in.)

Ok, I'm done. But seriously, have you ever wondered? Perhaps I should take hydrocodon anymore.

Also, as an after thought, I thought this video would be a great addition to this post. Unfortunately, I couldn't embed it into this post, so you'll have to follow the link. You can thank me later, Bob.

Oooh, fun post, Cece.

I have wondered about many of these things myself, especially 3 & 4! I'll go one further on #3 and admit to wondering what it would be like to have a penis--just one night would be enough to try it out, and then I'd be delighted to get rid of it again... Do you think every woman has wondered this?

As for #8, I was consumed with wondering, in my youth, and so ultimately had to try it; and it made for some of the weirdest experiences of my life. Very memorable times...I'm glad I was adventurous like that...I always like to think that I've got some stories for Hedgehog when she's much, much, much older...

As for the word "people," yes, I've thought it looked strange too. I think it's the "e" and the "o," which juxtaposition of course has to do with its etymology, but it still looks odd doesn't it.

Yipes, can you tell I'm insomniac too, up at 3:26 a.m. This was the PERFECT post to stumble across, thanks so much Cece! xoxoxox

Leah said...

Uh oh, someone else better comment so it's not just me with my weird stuff hanging out here!

And hope everyone's gonna have a nice Superbowl Sunday! Truth be told, we don't bother with it, but I'm sure it's fun...


Cece said...

The codine did finally kick in after I sat up until 3am watching porn. Has anyone ever seen Attack of the Aliens 3: Aliens Gone Wild? WOW! Talk about sensual. I was just sad that I found myself all alone. I think. Most of the stuff on Cinemax just makes me laugh or go Oh yeah right!, But that show was something else. I liked it. ALOT!

Karen ^..^ said...

Leah, yeah, I've wondered about #3. Don't worry about your weird stuff, you are more real than most and put it out there, your not skurred, LOL.

I've never wondered about drugs, Ive always feared them and steered way clear of them. I've always been fascinated by a personality that ISN'T too afraid to take them.

As for insomnia, it's almost always for me, too much on my mind, worry, and stress. Sometimes its too much pepsi before bedtime.

Leah said...

Hi Cece and Karen!

Aliens? Hmmm....

Karen--I love your new avatar, very pretty!

Suzanne said...

I'll be back. I had to check my bank account and the number for the SPCA (I need a referral to a place that sells Advantage for the lowest price because my Vet's prices are killing me!). Okay, it's official, I'm now late for the park, but I'm off.

Fun post and number three's a keeper. Yup, haven't we all baby!!! I'll be back. Maybe not today because I'm so busy, but if I have insomnia you'll hear from me in the wee hours of morn. I'm trying to write this while Bella's sitting on my lap biting my fingers. Trust me, it's a challeg===, let'sx, let's try that again. It's a challenge. Good, she jump off. She was seriously on the verge of losing her kitty privledges.

Gotta run! Have a great Sunday everyone!!!

Hi Cece
Hi Leah
Hi Karen


Leah said...

Do you think I'm the only person in America not watching the Superbowl?

It is on in the background, but neither Sarge nor I is paying much attention, and in fact are probably going to switch channels soon to Law and Order...blasphemous, I know...

just bob said...


Leah said...

Hi Bob! I know, I know. I'm so ashamed...

Leah said...

Who won?

just bob said...

Pittsburgh won in the last minute of the game. You missed a great finish!

Megan said...

Just got home from the party. In. San. It. Y.

We had so much fun I forgot to take any pictures.

I have tried just about everything except LSD. Once went to a Lollapalooza with a guy who dropped, and when he came out of the port-a-pottie saying that the stuff down there was looking at him, I knew it was definitely not for me...

Leah said...

@Megan--well, I had a little parade of miniature elephants in fancy Indian dress walking across my blanket!

glad you had fun last night--my daughter watched some with Sarge, and she was really into it. I have high hopes for her to pick up the slack around here where I drop it!

Anonymous said...

OMG! You had me at: "Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be the opposite sex during an orgasm?"

LOL!!! You are too funny! I've never taken acid too because I'm afraid I'll climb onto the roof and try to fly...maybe I'm a squirrel person?

Thanks for that post, Cece. You made my day. :-)

Cece said...

RC, glad I could help! After I came back and read this post, I was a bit afraid of how it would be perceived. I'm afraid I have tarnished my Angle of Life personna. LOL!

Leah said...

Cece, are you kidding? We all love to let our hair down so to speak!!!! Let's have lots of posts like this one!!!!!

Avid Reader said...

Great post, yes I have have have have have. and it beats always worrying or always whining,

always WoNdEriNg

just bob said...

No... they are inherently perfect

Suzanne said...

Cece (my darling Little Angle),

an-gle (ang-gel) n. 1. the space or figure formed between two lines or surfaces that meet.),

Don't worry, I never mistook you for an "angle," nor an angel for that matter. You're safe with me! Oh, and rather than worry about how "it" would be preceived you should have considered how "you" would be preceived!!!! NO CECE, I CAN'T HELP MYSELF!!! Oh crap I'm laughing too hard. (You know I wub you honey!)

Why am I here? I was trying to call Calphalon for pan replacements, but they're closed. They're on east coast time the little bastards. I've needed to make this call for the past year and finally I make it and what do they tell me? Yup, "Our hours are 9-5." Damn. Lazy bastards.

I've been on the phone for three hours trying to find the right plumber at the right price to "snake" the tub (it's backed up and I can't "unback" it!) and while they're at it replace the garbage disposal. Rob thought he could do it but wasn't able to get the old one off (it's an older Kitchen Aid and rather complicated), so we've been without a disposal for about 2 months and I've HAD ENOUGH. I'm the one who does all the work around here and I REFUSED to replace the disposal as most of you remember, so rather than call a plumber or handyman Rob informed me "I'm going to do it." I said "Good luck." He didn't read the instructions ahead of time so had to go to Home Depot for supplies before he'd even finished unpacking the new disposal!!! No, I didn't laugh at him, but did take the opportunity to inform him that when you tackle any home improvement project it's important to read the instructions well in advance so that you have the proper tools and supplies on hand. Could I have gone to Home Depot for him? Yup. Did I? Nope. He needed to learn a lesson. Could I get under the sink right now and probably figure out what's wrong and fix it? Yup. Will I? Nope. I'll tell you why. Because I've done every bit of the remodel on this house and I'm exhausted and because I told him replacing the disposal would hurt my neck and back, so I refused to do it and still do. He never hired a plumber or handyman to complete the project, so the disposal water drips into a dishpan. I'VE HAD ENOUGH!!! When the tub is snaked the disposal can me replaced as well. Most plumbers, believe it or not, charge between $300-$450 for both. It's pathetic. I called about 15 of them! My neighbor just informed me to call a handyman. As soon as I get off this contraption I have to get back on the phone and start calling them.

I'd hoped to spend the afternoon pruning roses because I'm weeks late and only have about 15 done and about 150 more to go. They should all be done by now, but at this rate I should have them all done by August. Wish me luck!

Good news. While pruning a very expensive climbing rose I bought at Capital Nursery last summer I discovered it has "root gall." Gall is fatal and the plant has to be destroyed. I called Capital Nursery in between plumber calls and explained my problem and asked it I could please bring it back for a credit or replacement. I was told "with a receipt." I informed him I didn't have a receipt because I never thought something I bought at Capital Nursery would go belly up (they're a very expensive nursery). He informed me they only have a 90 day guarantee, but I informed him I'd spend one hell of a lot of money on that rose bush and had only had it for about 6 months and was now going to have to put $35 in my trash bin (you can't put it in the compost pile or recyling bin). He said nothing. I waited. He said "Without tags and things like that, there's nothing we can do." I replied "Oh, it still has all the tags and it's in the original pot because it was too hot to plant!" I walked outside with the phone and read off all the tags, including the orange one with the name "Capital Nursery." Yup, "Bring it back at your convenience." Thank you. Thank you very much.

I also got the new kitchen faucet problem resolve today. Rob was supposed to call Peerless months ago and never did. We had a new kitchen faucet installed and from the moment it arrived it was a fiasco. Obviously defective. The kitchen consultant at Home Depot advised me to call the 800 number for Peerless because it has a lifetime guarantee. Months later, I made the call today. Peerless was fantastic, the new faucet will arrive in a few days. Unfortunately they can't replace the faucet with another or just give me a credit. I have to get the same faucet. I don't want it!!! I'M AFRAID!!! It cost almost as much to install as I paid for the damn thing!!! I don't want it. I told the young guy on the other end of the phone, "Honey, listen to me, I don't want it. I'd just like a credit so I can buy something more expensive and hopefully avoid this problem in the future. Do you know what I payed to have it installed?" "No, I'm sorry, I don't." "I payed almost the cost of the damn fixture, what if it goes belly up again?" His reply was golden, "Well, it has a lifetime guarantee." I said "You missed the point!!!" We both laughed really hard and he told me it was the policy and all he could do. I said "You know I'll never buy from Peerless again, don't you?" He replied "Yes."

Okay, so that's been my day so far. But I'm really proud. I got so much done. It's now after 4pm and I still have the dishwasher to load, the kitchen to organize, the laundry to do and God help least one rose bush to prune. It's a gorgeous day here (70 degrees!!!), but here I sit trying to gain strength for what's about to come. Wish me luck!!!

Love to all. And if you got this far, you're a "Dear Friend!"


Suzanne said...

Oh sorry, thought I was writing a new post for my blog!!!!! What? Oh, and most of you didn't notice, I responded to your comments on my blog in the wee hours of the morn. I'm going to put up a new post soon, so if you want to know how I really feel about you, take a peek before the current one slides into history. XO;)

just bob said...

I went to Lowe's a couple of weeks ago. Friendly and helpful staff and a nicer atmosphere than Home Despot. Give it a try Blottie.

kylie said...

theres been a mosquito following me around and it has suddenly disappeared but my nose is awfully tickly and weird feeling.

i'm wondering if i breathed him in?

just bob said...


kylie said...



kylie said...

OH, and bob?
you have awfully quiet mozzies. ours go
"eeeeeeeeeeeeeee" from the other direction "eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee"

just as i drop off to sleep "eeeeeeeeeeeeee eeeeeeeeeeeeeeee"
then when they get right in my ear "bzzzz bzzzzz eeee bzzzz"

Suzanne said...

Oh Bob, not to worry, I also shop at Lowe's. Love um!!! This wasn't a Home Depot issue, it was a Peerless faucet issue and Peerless delt with it just fine, I only wish I could have received a credit rather than a replacement faucet. When the package arrives from Peerless I'm thinking of taking it right up to Home Depot for a refund!!!! I'll use the credit for a better faucet!!! I refuse to replace a crappy faucet with a new crappy faucet! And it shouldn't be a crappy was expensive! Oh...the joy of home repair.

Mosquitos. Don't get me started. I grew up in NY. Home of the mosquitos from hell. To top it off, I was also allergic. A mosquito bits would result in a welt 5"x5". No joke. Oh, forgot to mention...mosquitos were attracted to me like bees to honey. Moving to CA saved my life. Barely any mosquitos! But I digress. I once watched a Monty Python skit that nearly killed me with laughter. I've only seen it once. The fellows were out hunting mosquitos in the woods with army fighting vehicles equipped with machine guns. *Buries head in hands!!!* Still funny to this day.

I'll tell you a really funny story. My sister and I were just laughing about this the other night because she asked me if it really happened. Oh yes, it happened!!! Back in the 70's, teenagers watching Saturday Night Live in the bedroom. Really stoned. A squirrel ran behind the TV. We all looked at one another in utter disbelief. What should we do? Call Daddy? Nope, too stoned, he'd notice. So we just watched Saturday Night Live and then Monty Python with a squirrel in our bedroom. Then went to bed. The squirrel obviously had a way out. Apparently the same way he came in. When Laur brought this up the other night we couldn't stop laughing. Our memory was so similar. Is it just our family??!!! I can't believe stupid stuff happens only to us. This was also the night Saturday Night Live did a hilarious skit about pot brownies. We were so stoned we couldn't stop laughing. Those days are long gone but oh so precious.


kylie said...

and you know what else?
a friend just told me i am pathetic because i blog for company so i'm wondering
is it really so bad?
or maybe it would be better if i was just sad and lonely and didnt blog

Megan said...

I blog for company.


so do i...

Suzanne said...


Honey, you swear sometimes, right? Good. Tell your friend to go to hell.

Ahhhhhhhhhhhh, I need some company. I'll put on the tea pot and see who shows up. It's late. Probably no one!

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh, I need some company. I'll open a bottle of booze. Someone's bound to show up!

Kylie, don't worry sweetie. Blogging = good. I love and need your company.


kylie said...

i swear much more than is decent! and i'm not worried about it anymore, i decided she just doesnt know what shes talking about. she's probably even jealous :)

Suzanne said...


I love your new pboto! And yes, she probably IS jealous. Stick around because we all need you here.

Baby, can you believe how we met all those long months ago? It's amazing really. What compelled us to find One Pic and then what made us all cling to one another when he abandoned us? I can't imagine my life without you now. We were destined to find one another. I honestly believe that. Please don't ever give up blogging because I can't call you!


Leah said...

Kylie--you do look beautiful in your new avatar, dollface!!!

And as for the blogging doubters, well, pah on them!

Leah said...

And yeah, what's wrong with blogging for company? I think it's neat to be able to have relationships like this through the written word. We're like pen-pals, but with instant gratification.

Cece said...

Did anyone else notice all of blotties spelling and grammer mistakes? Angel Angle. It looks all the same on my computer.

But seriously, who else has this problem. Handle, Candle or is it Handel and Candel. I get them mixed up all the time. Also, I seriously put an e at the end of potato every time. Then I realize, the doesn't belong there. But it should. Yes, I'm as dumb as Dan Q. and yetI'm a microbiologist. Scary isn't it?

Cece said...

Oh and Suze,

I wuv you too!

Suzanne said...

I'm the Typo and Bad Spelling Queen!!! Oh, and bad grammar too!!! That's why I can have all the fun!!! And Cece, I "wub" you too. I also "wuv" you too. Which one is it?

Kylie, you still blogging beautiful?!

Gotta get to the park. Don't want to be late today. Hope you all have a great...Tuesday? It's Tuesday, right?

Love you all! XO

Mark said...

I wonder all the time!

kylie said...
