live and let die


So the nice long spread of the holiday weekend is behind me, kind of like my gorilla ass.

Having my dad spend his nights at the city's local swanky hotel sorta worked out ok. I mean, at least I did not have to worry I was boring him. If they would of stayed here, I would of felt like I had to be on all weekend. And I just don't have that much on in me. Because I am fat and lazy that way.

Look, the boy got his $4,000 telescope...ok, maybe it was not that much, but it might as well of been.




















I looked thru it last night, I saw some strange shit there on the moon. I am totally convinced,after seeing it up close and personal that it is indeed made of cheese.

I swear that kid better discover some sort of galaxy or at least save us all from a horrid asteroid or something.

Look, these are my new flip flops I bought...























what do u think?

Here is my dad and my um mom with my lil flippers.





















My dad and Blondie spent lots of time playing catch and various other baseball activities..

Here is Mr Shaky with his lil flippers..

















What a cute little happy bunch of retardedness...awwwwwww!

here is me and the kids..


















Doesn't The Boy look like he is having the best time..he sure does love me, makes my heart skip a beat.

Here are me and the girls..


















Oh and here is the much anticipated shot of my non existent Cinnomelt Buying Place.

Bastards...every last one of em..
















But the dumb asses leave the damn sign up just to torture my soul..

Saturday guess where we went..Thats right..I went and saw Shrek for a second time.

It was not any better the second time..But I think my dad got a kick out of it..He said and I quote

well now that's just as cute as the other ones..

I think maybe its because they play Live and Let Die by The Beatles in the movie..Just my thought anyway..

Only good thing I can say, is it is a short movie.

Sunday we went to the ever lovin Mall of America..

Rode some roller coasters, a few water rides, went to some shops..

Wanna see the cutest thing..This was my only personal purchase..set me back a whole 3.50




















My vacation is over. I head back to the office in a few short hours...I need to live somewhere where everyday can be a vacation.
Although Mr Shaky thinks my whole life is a vacation.
~
Oh I just found out Prince is going to be playing here in July. He is promoting his new now you better not laugh or I may knock the ugly right off you..
perfume.
Gosh I hope it comes in a nice shiny purple bottle.
So I am trying to get my scrubby hands on some hot seats..A summer full of Two Def Leppard shows, AND Prince...that is way better then a summer full of sunshine and sex..
Well I gotta run..
HAve a Happy Peroid.

Hi Bossy!
That is one tall Mickey D's sign!
Like a beacon of safety and warmth beckoning on dark and stormy nights..
Hey, if you'd like the green cast taken from that photo of your Dad and the Kiddos, let me know..unless it was deliberate..

Flip Flop Goddess said...

Sandi,
thanks..I use all access already..last year I got first ..was able to get some really nice pics too..

its the only way I will buy tix anymore, but the tix I just bought for my detroit show is not using all access..but i got them for the other one.

thanks though..we are on the same page here;)

Tom,
oh gosh, I antiuqed it thats why it looks like that..haha..but thanks for offering..

well the sign only looks big cuz well, there aint no mcdonalds there..it wasnt so big with it standing next to it.

Tom said...

Bossy, GIMP (free download) has a good antiquing thinger on it too. It does pretty all Photoshop does.
Do you use film or digital?

Flip Flop Goddess said...

I only use digital..

My Photoshop is on my desktop, but that damn compueter is not working right, so I just use HP software not sure where it came from...

I dont photoshop much anyway so i dont mind..

is that a website?..or what?

Tom said...

Hi Bossy!
The site (I assume you use windows..I use the Apple version)http://gimp-win.sourceforge.net/stable.html
You have to do the runtime environment first and then the actual program..but fear not, it's all exe files and just go with the defaults. it's an automated installer. If you want to just know what it is, www.gimp.org
I've used it for years.
It's all open source.

KrazyMom said...

Hey girl! I have those same flip flops...but in red! What good taste we have. Hope you had fun with your younger Mudder and Pa ;)

Katie said...

Those are some hot flip flops!

I can't believe they are torturing you by leaving the MC D's sign up.

You were very brave to go to the MOA on a holiday weekend. I would have rather slit my wrists.

Meow said...

Looove your new flip flops. I had some similar ones last summer, they are great.
Don't work too hard this week, will you.
Take care, Meow

Hails said...

Cool you guys had a nice visit. I wanna go to the Mall of America next time oh and get me a ticket to see Prince m-kay? {:-). I want to see him just one more time in concert before I retire *snickers*.

I wish I could wear flipper floppers. I hate having that thing between my toes. It feels like a big ole wad of toe jam or sumthin *LOL*.

Have a good week at the crazy job!((hugs))

Flip Flop Goddess said...

Katie,
normally I would not venture on a holiday weekend, but it didnt seem like there were that many people there, so it wasnt too bad.

Meow,

Neurotic1 said...

Glad you had a good weekend. Go up to Micky D's and get the ball rolling. I would hate for you to have withdrawal symptoms. I love Boo's outfit. It is sooo adorable ;)

~Deb said...

I have the same flip-flops that you do! :D

Oh, and yeah, I had a telescope when I was his age too, but I remember, I had a very beautiful neighbor next door who undressed every evening at 9pm.

Looking at the moon....my arse!!! (No pun!)

Flip Flop Goddess said...

Neurotic,
I am already having withdrawl symptoms..they started the day the wrecking ball came out.

i got her outfit at target, cute huh?

Deb,
well, considering our one nieghbor is a morbidly obsese eldery woman, or a chubby 7 year old, or two elderly couples, I doubt he is looking at other things..

Now give him a few years and if anyone nice looking chics move to the hood, they could be in trouble.

I got my flops at Target, got em in pink too:)

dakotablueeyes said...

love the flipflops. I got some new ones yesterday

Just A Girl said...

I heard tales of Prince holding private dinner party type concerts. The party starts at 10pm he plays for 2 hours, then his chef cooks a meal and everyone eats, then the plays again for another 2 hours. The tickets are supposed to cost upwards of $200 a ticket. I just heard of it Friday night but haven't had time to research it yet.

I am in love with your flip flop look around here. Very summer lovin'.

Ok..amazing what a little google gets you.....

Prince in LA for 7 weeks
source: latimes.com
Exclusive: Seven weeks of Prince in Hollywood?
Hollywood will be raining purple this summer, if current plans hold up.
Prince is expected to announce a seven-week residency at the historic Roosevelt Hotel that will include a heaping helping of music, dining and VIP guests, sources say. The stint is contingent on final approval of the contracts, which could come as early as this week. The string of shows is scheduled to start in mid-June, about a week after the 49th birthday of the man born Prince Rogers Nelson.
What the plans call for: On seven Friday nights starting June 15, the Roosevelt will close off its lobby at 9 p.m. Then, at 11:30 in the Blossom Room in front of 250 seated guests and an undetermined number of standing-room-only patrons, Prince (joined each week by special guests) will give a two-hour performance. At 2 a.m., Prince's private chef will take over the kitchen of the Roosevelt's Dakota restaurant, which will morph into an after-hours dinner club. As part of a jazz ensemble, Prince will entertain diners until 4 a.m.
Nobody's going to be asking where afterparty is, that's for sure. Ticket information might be available this week -- suffice to say these tickets will not be cheap. A one-off performance given by Prince last year at the Roosevelt attracted a star-studded crowd.
Prince last week was announced as part of a pricey concert series this summer in the Hamptons. And just two weeks ago, in announcing 21 dates this summer in London, Prince said he was taking some time off to study the Bible.
Prince will be staying at the Roosevelt all summer as he and his band rehearse for their tour.

Flip Flop Goddess said...

Dakota,
flip flops rule..hehe

Just girl,
I saw that..But he is playing a ONE NIGHT only here in Minneaplois to promote his new perfume..tix are 132...they go on sale sat..

I am so there..

I know he is playing a shit load of shows in London as well..

Thanks for the info though..

wanna go with me?..haha

Yippeeskip said...

LOVE the new look! Bummer that SHREK sucks but I'm still taking my 4 year old to see it as he isn't a film critic yet. He watched the original and sequel 3x a day for months.

patti_cake said...

Wow I am jealous of Prince and I would probably buy his perfume.. if it were for girls that is. I can't see the hubs wearing Prince Cologne.
You and the fam are adorable!

P.S. A happy period. Isn't that an oxymoron or something? or at the very least a fairytale.

just another Mom said...

Flip Flop Goddess said...

Yippieskip,
well my 7 year old and ten year old loved it..So I am sure your 4 year old will think its a damn hoot..haha


Patti cake,
what, u never have a happy peroid?

hehe


I was assuming the perfume was female..it damn well betetr be..

But if it is a mens perfume, not only will the hubby not wear it, he would laugh his ass off at the fact prince has mens PERFUME..I would never be able to live that one down.

just another mom,

hello there...thank u for reading and thank u for commenting..

I think u have to use a bit of twisted scarcasm to make it thru life, especailly when u have kids..

I hope to hear from u again.

Wendy said...

I have some black flip flops just like those. Love em!
Looks like you had a nice visit with your dad. All that worrying was for nothing. I usually do the same thing when someone is coming.

I LOVE Prince! My dad loves Prince and taught me to love him at a very young age. Probably too young to be listening to some of his songs. I would much rather being going to see him instead of Gwen Stefani this weekend but as usual I don't make the plans in my group.

Flip Flop Goddess said...

Wendy,
Gwen Stafanie..*gag me*..hehe

My parents give me shit for liking Prince..as well as the hubby..they dont know shit.

Choppzs said...

Kendra Lynn said...
