It’s THAT time of year again. 11

It’s THAT time of year again.

Edited to add: Brenda sent me a link to an AWESOME article explaing some of the “secrets”. Here it is if you want to read it too! Well, it’s summertime, which means nothing but reruns and crap on TV. This is why we, here in the Zoot household, enjoy the summer tradition of Big Brother on CBS. And today? They announced the houseguests. The show starts NEXT Thursday, July 7th. There are 14 houseguests this year (instead of 12) and the house is TWO STORIES. Woo! We all know that means TWO times the excitement! Or something like that. Supposedly,...

My Dishwasher is Possessed

We came home yesterday and the dishwasher (OR, as I like to call it, SATAN) was filled with water. I wrestled with it for a little while until MrZ took over. He FINALLY decided right before bed, that the overflow drain was clogged, so we cleaned it out and the water drained fine with the next cycle. But this morning? I opened up the dishwasher (read: SATAN) to make sure it was empty. I closed it again and as I turned around to walk past it, the damn demon-possessed appliance door SWUNG OPEN and hit me in the shin! That...

The internet scares me, sometimes. 10

The internet scares me, sometimes.

It’s almost the end of the month, so it’s time to cruise June’s search strings for blogging material. And if you’re wondering what the COMPLETE list of June search strings looks like? And the scary SCARY ones I don’t tell you about? I converted the whole list to a text file for your enjoyment. Please right-click and choose “Save As” if you’re curious (but don’t say I didn’t warn you). The number that follows the search phrase is the amount of times it was used to get to my site, in a solid number and a percentage. Have at it:...

SHAMU!!!! 12

SHAMU!!!!

While I was updating my design blog last night, I decided to redesign it a little bit. Go look…she’s so pretty. Doncha’ think? Speaking of things that are pretty… I now have an aversion to showering. No lie. I was taking a shower this weekend and slipped coming out of the tub (I’m naturally a klutz, pregnancy makes it a deadly condition) and almost busted my ass (and face, and belly) all over the bathroom floor. Luckily, I grabbed the shower curtain (and it actually held!) which is probably what saved my life. Or at least my pride. But now?...

Someone failed this week’s spelling test. 4

Someone failed this week’s spelling test.

Blech. I just had to start my morning off cleaning up dog poop. And you know? It’s never just a pick-up-and-go job. Nope. The only time the dogs poop inside is if their tummy is upset. And upset tummy poop is NEVER an easy clean up job. It usually requires 150 paper towels and more carpet treatment (because they NEVER get sick on linoleum, that would also be too easy) spray than I have. No matter how much I have. I always need more. Blech. If you’re trying to eat? Sorry. I took this picture up at Monte Sano state...
