Shithouse rat

I'm a bipolar writer in the Naked City. I'm not playing with a full deck. I don't have all my dots on the dice. My cheese is sliding off my cracker. I don't have both oars in the water. I'm a bubble off plum. In other words, I'm crazier than a shithouse rat. These are my stories. Comments--short or long, nasty or nice--always welcome!

FREE Chinese Food!!!!

OK. Did I get everyone's attention?

Just a shout out to let you know that the delicious, nutritious, super enriched year-end edition of Carnival of the Vanities is out at Chicken Soup of the Damned. I love that title, don't you? If our blogs got married, our blogchild could be called Chicken Shithouse Rat Soup of the Damned. Yummy!

Anyway, lots of posts over there if you're interested. And visit Harshly Mellow for info on how to enter the next wacky, crazy, koo koo carnival yourself. (Harshly Mellow Shithouse Rat?)

That's OK, abbreviating and combining ours is the delightful:

Scenes from a Shithouse.

Damn. Might have to turn that into a movie script for Lifetime channel.

I don't know. They might make it so pious that it would veer off into "precious" territory.

Elvira, you might find my new blog post interesting. Please let me know what you think.

i dont care too much for chinese myself. the closest i come is egg rolls, shrimp fried rice, sweet and sour chicken and bourbon chicken. that's it for me, besides it makes your breath and ass reek for days!
i did however have the displeasure of consuming fried rice that tasted like a christmas tree! how bad for me to find out there was pine nuts in it! i am allergic! to make matters worse is that it wasnt worth the trip to the hospital cause it tasted like crap!

LOL! I had a helluva time finding the "perfect" dish. I was considering using an extreme close up of some spare ribs, but I wasn't sure you could tell what they were. The decision of which pic would "represent" was a toughie.

Jessie:

Hey, the Chinese dishes you describe are what half the country eats anyway...lol...

I love pine nuts, but I wouldn't want to go to the ER for them. Sorry--this Christmas tree fried rice pic probably stirred up some ugly memories. Ugh!

Leesa:

No Chinese food in Montana? Hmmm. That would be a toughie for me--lol.

Webmiztris:

Nikki, Jane, Mrs. Hell on Heels:

I've screwed myself over big time as well, since I'm turning over a new leaf for the New Year, which involves only plain veggies and no sumptuous Chinese food fests. Looking at this pic is pure torture for me.

Happy New Year, you guys!

I want to be clear that I have nothing against lifetime itself. I do think that the way they produce some of their movies does cheapen the quality of the storyline and related content. All of the ESPN and Fox channels, those I greatly dislike.

By the way, I have removed the angry post. Since we have made up in a sense, I don't feel that it is appropriate to have a public record of those sort of feelings.

Ice:

I don't watch Lifetime much, except for sociological reasons. Meaning, if I want to get a sense of what a certain segment of the female population like to watch, I might tune in occasionally. But it's kind of soap-opera-ish, isn't it?

Sorry you took down your angry post. My feeling is, if you've poured your guts out, leave the guts up there on the wall! But I'm glad I got to see it before you took it down.

I couldn't leave up something that cruel. I care too much about him.
