Loopy Speak

I'm fortunate in the fact that I have acquired many friends in my 26 years (oops, I mean 41). Each of these friends has their own vernacular. I have adopted some of them as my own. Others I have invented. Here's a little cheat sheet for you:

My current favorite sayings:

  • Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
  • Who's that fool?
  • Goddamn doofus (from my friends Jen & Ivan)
  • Beagle (a term for someone who isn't being smart, also known as a Goddamn Doofus)
  • I don't give a care
  • Who are those hooligans?
  • A nap isn't going to take itself
  • Goody gumdrops

Some favorites that friends have used:

"A buffet is a friend to no one." Alease
"Martinis are like boobs, one is not enough, but three is too many." Lizzie
"Homely as a bag of cats." Michelle
"The numbers don't lie." John
"I need my eyebrows waxed, they look like two caterpillars fighting above my eyes." Kelly L.

Here are some acronyms that I enjoy using:

LLPOF-Liar, liar pants on fire
LGN-Loser going nowhere
BCD-Behind closed doors

And one of my all-time favorites:

"My underwear is fighting a losing battle with my ass today."

How about you? Do you have any favorite sayings?


Here are a few things I'm a little embarrassed to admit.

  • I don't know how to buy a lottery ticket
  • I don't know how to make coffee (except with a Keurig)
  • I fell off a stool today and bruised my upper butt area
  • I can be bossy at times
  • I don't own a legit pair of pajamas
  • My cat refers to me as "Mama"
  • I tell my nephews that we can't go into the arcade because they're having a birthday party in there. Really it's just a sign in the front of the store that reads, "Have your BIRTHDAY PARTY here!"
  • I judge people who have really dirty eyeglasses
  • My second toe is longer than my first toe
  • I bought a Gucci wallet off a kid in my class in high school...knowing it was stolen (What? I HAD to have it!)
So, there you have it. A few more pieces to the puzzle.

Have a great weekend!

If you know me at all, you know that I have a long standing love affair with chocolate. If you cut me, I'm pretty sure that I would bleed chocolate.

One of my favorite places to go is Puopolo Candies in Hingham (Massachusetts). Their newest creation is called "Hingham Harbor Bark." It's so popular that they keep adding new flavors.

Check it out:

My two favorites are The Original

and Sandy Beach.

That's why I get a box with both. It's so yummy!

They also offer lots of other tasty treats.

A Few of my Favorite Things

People often say to me, "Loopy, you're a lot like Oprah." I say, "Really? How so?" They respond, "Well, you both have your favorite things that you like telling people about."
This is true, however, unlike Ms. Winfrey, I'm not giving you mine, I'm just going to tell you about them. Oh come on, wipe that sour puss off your face, the highest priced item is $12.

Here goes:

I have three favorite things about this light:
#1 It takes batteries. You don't have to mess with a cord and try and find an outlet nearby.
#2 It has this little switch on the side:

When you set it to "Auto" it comes on when motion is detected. It stays on for about 30 seconds and then goes off.
#3 The handy-dandy hook that it comes with.

I have one of these lights hanging in my bathroom. When I get up in the middle of the night, it's nice to be able to see. I also have one hanging just inside the door of my house. It turns on when the door opens, which I love. I'm pretty sure it would scare robbers away.

My second favorite thing that I'm going to share with you today is this:

Archer Farms Chocolate Lave Cakes. You can get them at Target. They are so yummy. Just look at this chocolatey goodness.
They come four in a package and they'll cost you $6.99. I can't have them in the house all the time because if I did, I'd be as BIG as a house. Although, I must say, I only eat one half when I eat them. I cut them in half before popping them in the microwave. They're also good with whipped cream. What? I had a big salad for dinner.

My third favorite thing is my lotion.

It's pronounced SARA-VAY and it can be a little difficult to find. Sometimes they have it at Target and Wal-Mart but I'm usually able to find it at Walgreen's. And it's usually on sale for about $12. Yes, it might be a lot to pay for lotion, but this stuff works great. I use it on my hands, feet, elbows and legs. It's moisturizing without being greasy. My dermatologist recommended it years ago and I've been using it ever since. I can't say enough good things about it.

Well, there you have it. A few products that I love. Are there any products that you love and can't live without?

The End of My Hiatus!

I am hereby announcing the official end to my blogging hiatus. It was not taken on purpose, I just got busy. Busy with what, you ask?

Well, here's a little list of what I've been doing:

  • Eating copious amounts of chocolate
  • Counting my wrinkles
  • Helping to care for my mom after hip replacement surgery
  • Working
  • Passing gas
  • Gazing at myself in the mirror (see wrinkles, above)
  • Standing, with the refrigerator door open, squirting whipped cream into my mouth
  • Celebrating my birthday
  • Not exercising
  • Trying on these sunglasses. Repeatedly.
  • Training my cat to shed outside only
  • Fuming at gas prices
  • Mocking people who say, "supposebly" and "Valentime's"
  • Making excuses for not shaving my legs
  • Shopping
So you see, I just haven't had time in my busy schedule to blog. Plus, I haven't had much to write about. Although, I did almost step in dog poop the other day. That's worth writing about.
