Apr. 29: Stud-less poker

Last night I went over to my friend Cassie's for a girls' night of poker and alcohol consumption. I lost $5 but kept my dinner, so I guess it all evened out. Regardless, it was a great evening and I have found a few new cool people with which to hang. :)

I also found that I need to work on my Texas Hold 'Em skills. Today I looked up rules and strategies on a few web sites and found this brilliant little nugget:

The object of poker is to win as much money as possible.

Sheesh, if only I had known that before! 'Course, as soon as the blender came out, I think we were all a leetle foggy on the object of anything. After a couple hours Cassie screamed "I love this song!" every few minutes, and Jen (the other one) knocked over two wine glasses. Lori (the other one), Sue and I were more consistently sane, though I suppose it's possible that I might just not remember my failure to hold my bladder. (Just in case: sorry about the sofa, Cass...)

Back to Yahoo! Games for a poker match. I gotta get some new mad skills for next time! And if I get really good maybe I can join the Lassens' contractors' game. Where'd I put that visor?


Jen (the other other one)

Apr. 26: 'Splain, please

Is anyone else as bothered by this commercial as I am?

I don't get it. And until I hear a justifiable reason for Starburst using this as advertising, I am not going to eat any Starburst.

Psst... don't tell, but I don't eat Starburst very often anyway. Shhhhh.

Apr. 26: Me loves me some gadgets

My new Real Simple magazine had these cool shredder scissors in it (click pic to go to seller's site). This is a gadget I simply must have. It's probably a lot quieter than the shredder I have now that I can only use during the day while the kids are awake and when Vic is home because it's so loud it scares me and makes me think someone is probably sneaking up behind me to shred me.

When I started searching the Internet for the scissors, I also found this USB mini shredder (click pic to go to one seller's site). I don't think the USB part of it is so impressive, but it looks like it's pretty small. I like the idea of keeping one in a convenient place that wouldn't take up quite so much room as the big'n I already have. If you get as much $#!+ mail as I do, then you understand why I like this itty-bitty thing.

And one more, which isn't available for purchase, but quite possibly the coolest of all, is the hamster-powered shredder. Force the little guy to make his own bedding! Just think, he'd learn all about responsibility and maybe even appreciate life a little more.

Anyone know where I can find kid-powered electronics? Or stuff that runs on gum I find stuck to my furniture?


Apr. 26: E=MC wuh?

Math is just a mystery wrapped in an enigma cloaked in a Twinkie. I don't git it. Anyway, you'll need a calculator because you won't be able to do this in your head.

  1. Key in the first three digits of your phone number
    (NOT the area code)
  2. Multiply by 80
  3. Add 1
  4. Multiply by 250
  5. Add the last 4 digits of your phone number
  6. Add the last 4 digits of your phone number again
  7. Subtract 250
  8. Divide by 2

Do you recognize the answer?

Apr. 23: Just one more

"I don't care how optimistic you are, a diaper is never half empty."

I'm done now. Really. No more Apr. 23 posts.


Apr. 23: The grown-ups' table

Maybe I should make Mondays my "posting stuff other people wrote" days. Y'think? This one was just too good not to share. I know every conversation at my parents' table went exactly like this when I was a kid. I'm sure of it. (Don't believe my mom if she denies it. She lies.)


A Conversation at the Grown-up Table, as Imagined at the Kids' Table
by Simon Rich (The New Yorker)

Mom: Pass the wine, please. I want to become crazy.

Dad: OK.

Grandmother: Did you see the politics? It made me angry.

Dad: Me, too. When it was over, I had sex.

Uncle: I'm having sex right now.

Dad: We all are.

Mom: Let's talk about which kid I like the best.

Dad: (laughing) You know, but you won't tell.

Mom: If they ask me again, I might tell.

Friend from work: Hey, guess what! My voice is pretty loud!

Dad: (laughing) There are actual monsters in the world, but when my kids ask I pretend like there aren't.

Mom: I'm angry! I'm angry all of a sudden!

Dad: I'm angry, too! We're angry at each other!

Mom: Now everything is fine.

Dad: We just saw the PG-13 movie. It was so good.

Mom: There was a big sex.

Friend from work: I am the loudest! I am the loudest!

(Everybody laughs)

Mom: I had a lot of wine, and now I'm crazy!

Grandfather: Hey, do you guys know what God looks like?

All: Yes.

Grandfather: Don't tell the kids.

Apr. 23: You can't argue with science

Huge thanks to Erin for forwarding this very valuable information to me today.

It has been scientifically proven that if we drink one liter of water each day, at the end of the year we would have absorbed more than one kilo of Escherichia coli (E. coli) bacteria found in feces. In other words, we are consuming one kilo of poo. However, we do not run that risk when drinking wine (or rum, whiskey, beer or other liquor) because alcohol has to go through a purification process of boiling, filtering and/or fermenting.


Ergo: It is better to drink wine and talk stupid than to drink water and be full of crap.

Just passing the news along. You're welcome.


Apr. 23: Marmoset knock you out

I don't have anything to write, really, but I was reading an old issue of the Oregonian, saw this headline and just had to use it. Because I'm a dork. And, obviously, a bit of a plagiarist.

In case you were wondering, here's the accompanying news item:

An Illinois couple who bought a cute pet monkey four years ago say the animal now dominates them and rides their dog like a horse. -- Medill Reports

To recap,
1. I have nothing important to say.
2. I am a dork.
3. I am a plagiarist of sorts.
4. I am a monkey hater. (Did I mention I hate monkeys? Because I meant to. I really can't stand them.)


Apr. 23: Lame joke du jour

A friend of Katie's recently gave her a stuffed Pikachu. There's been a lot of "I choose YOU, Pikachu!" around our house ever since, but only because that's the extent of what Vic or I can say about him (it?). So even though our kids are unofficially too young to think their parents are idiots, they think we are idiots.

And that brings us to the silliness I offer you this morning, courtesy of The Edge in the Oregonian.

Q: How do you get Pikachu on a bus?

A: Pokémon.

Apr. 22: You can't make me go

I got some books on Northern California travel (see Pimp My Vacation) in hopes of starting an itinerary for our upcoming family road trip.

But when I read about "Nature's Underpants," I put away the travel guides. That does not sound like even a little bit of fun. Maybe we'll head north.

P.S. I'm so proud of myself! Every time I say "road trip," I throw up in my mouth a little less! Yay me.

Apr. 22: Legend of the Falls

I've lived in Oregon all my life, and in Portland for 31+ years. Vic has lived here for 16 years. Today we stopped at the viewpoint on I-205 and looked at Willamette Falls, and it was the first time either of us had seen them in person. I saw them on TV in 1996 during the floods; the river was so high they had virtually disappeared. I seem to remember a house floating down that stretch of the river too. But the falls can't be seen from the highway--they're far below the road--and on the Oregon City side they're mostly blocked by ugly industrial buildings. I know there are other viewpoints, but obviously I don't know where they are.

Not only are the Willamette Falls actually quite beautiful, there is also an interesting fact about them that I was pretty sure Vic pulled out of his arse until I came home and verified it on the World Waterfall Database (for reals!). It is the second largest waterfall in the U.S. (by volume)--the first, of course, being Niagara Falls. Perty cool for little ol' Portland.

The fact that I was a leetle excited about finally seeing Willamette Falls up close and personal makes me a total geek, doesn't it? Meh.

With as much love as a geek could possibly be capable of feeling--


Apr. 21: Pimp my vacation

You better sit down for this.

We're thinking it's time for a non-Disney vacation for our family. We want our kids to know there are other things out there. I know, I had forgotten too!

Sometime this summer we want to take a week-long road trip. Now, this is me, so "road trip" can't involve more than two states. And there must be a lot of stops along the way. And preferably not involve any location beyond central California.

I think visits to a national park or two would be a nice goal. But besides San Francisco I'm not sure if there are any cities we should plan to spend time in. I mean, Redding only has so much culture to absorb, right?

Suggestions are welcome. Thanks.


Apr. 21: Happy birthdays

Today is Debi's birthday, so in her honor, I whip out my wallet of special photos and show you one of my favorites. It's Baby Debi on her horsey! When I reminded Katie and Jack that it was Auntie Debi's birthday today, they asked how old she was. I told them, and Katie said, "Wow, she's almost caught up with you, Mommy!"

Have a great day, Debi! I love you bunches, no matter how old you get!

It also be's Scout's birthday today (notice I mentioned Debi's first... you're welcome, Deb!). She's ten years old today. This is the picture that fell me in love with her all those years ago. What a sweet girl she was back then. And really, she still is just about the best girl ever.

Even though she still eats our flowers.


Apr. 19: Call me the truth fairy

I love Snopes.com. Like underwear, it holds the answer to all the important questions. And with its help, today I’m going to ruin all the things you’ve believed your whole life, you dummy. I mean, um, I love you!

  • Gum does not take seven years to digest. It goes through your system just like everything else, though it pretty much comes out looking like it did going in. I’m gonna take their word for that.
  • Some hair related things: shaving does not make your hair grow back thicker or darker. Shampooing does not make your hair fall out, it’d do that anyway (we all shed!). Your hair does not become accustomed to a shampoo, thus rendering it ineffective. Brushing your hair a hundred times every night, Marcia Brady, is not going to enhance its shine or health; in fact, it actually hurts your hair more than it helps it. Dur.
  • Baby birds will not be rejected by their mothers if touched by humans. Still, you should leave ‘em be.
  • The dog years to human years ratio of 7:1 is way off.
  • Interstate highways were not designed to be airstrips in time of war.
  • Marking “Jedi” as your religion will not force the government to grant it official status. But it sure is funny!
  • Your roommate’s suicide will not guarantee you a 4.0 GPA.
  • Coke will not dissolve a tooth overnight, nor will you explode if you drink it with Pop Rocks.
  • That National Do Not E-mail Registry you signed up for to cut down on the spam you receive? It’s a hoax. So are most of the other e-mails you get.
  • Mama Cass did not choke to death on a ham sandwich, though that’s a lot more amusing than the truth.
  • Otto Titzling is not responsible for inventing the brassiere, and Thomas Crapper did not invent the flush toilet.
  • Poinsettias are not poisonous.
  • No part of Walt Disney has been preserved cryogenically.
  • Rice thrown at weddings is not harmful to birds; in fact, it’s harmful to people because it's slippery on hard surfaces.
  • Turkey does not make you sleepy. The amount of tryptophan a person could consume at one sitting is not enough to affect their sleepiness without several other factors also being present. Maybe you should just stop stuffing your face, you pig.
  • Plastic water bottles do not become carcinogenic, even if they’re frozen. Microwaving plastic containers isn’t going to kill you either. Stop forwarding all the warnings, mmkay?
  • Mr. Ed wasn’t a horse; he was a zebra.
  • Nobody was ever charged $250 by Neiman-Marcus for a cookie recipe.
  • Californians do not need hunting licenses to set mousetraps.
  • Caesar salad is not named for Julius Caesar. It’s named after a different dude (probably one that knew how to cook).
  • An American flag that touches that ground does not need to be burned.
  • Tapping a shaken and unopened soda can will not keep it from foaming over.
  • Ingesting Visine does not induce daddy-wee-wa.
  • Turns out Twinkies do have a shelf life: 25 days.
  • Pee in the pool all you want. There’s no such thing as a chemical that will tell on you.
  • The actress that was painted gold in Goldfinger did not die from asphyxiation.
  • The average person does not swallow eight spiders a year.
  • Five-second rule? There’s no such thing.

If there's anything you don't believe, you'll find sources at Snopes.

(bonus points if you caught the Grandpa Simpson reference)

Apr. 15: Parks that suck

This morning Vic and I were arguing about California theme parks and I turned to Wikipedia for truthiness. As always, that trusty resource provided the answers that allowed me to go, "Na na na na na naaaaaaaaaaaaa!" and dance victoriously for a good 40 minutes. When I was done gettin' jiggy, I followed some related links and found this page: a list of defunct amusement parks. I can't believe anyone thought a park based on Sid & Marty Krofft's TV shows could be successful! I mean, if you're thinking up stupid ideas for a theme park, why not Ziggyland? Or Family Circus Circus? Or Dilbert World (OK, that one might be kinda fun).

The parks on this list that I've been to are no surprise. The MGM Grand Adventures was the dumbest park ever, I think. It had a "who's that?" cast of characters and ridiculously high admission prices. And Vic peed his pants on the water ride, but that was funny.


Apr. 15: HB, SV

Happy birthday to my nephew, the soon-to-be-famous Steve. He's 19 and totally awesome. Enjoy your cake, dude.

Apr. 13: Chuckle with me

My list of "crap to share" has gotten long enough. Today I offer up some hee-haws collected from the www.

  • It takes 46 muscles to frown but only 4 to flip 'em the bird
  • "Who are you and how did you get in here?"
    "I'm a locksmith. And... I'm a locksmith..."
  • The cat said I'm dismissive and sarcastic. What does he know? He's only 10" tall.
  • Karate is a form of martial arts in which people who have had years and years of training can, using only their hands and feet, make some of the worst movies in the history of the world
  • A computer once beat me at chess, but it was no match for me at kick boxing
  • What if everything is an illusion and nothing exists? In that case, I definitely overpaid for my carpet.
  • Am I getting older or is the supermarket playing great music?
  • I'd like gangsta rap more if it wasn't about killing people like me
  • Sign in a store: "Unattended children will be given espresso and a free kitten"
  • It's not an oil leak. It's my car marking its territory.
  • When I die, I want to go peacefully like my grandfather did, in his sleep -- not screaming, like his passengers
  • People are more violently opposed to fur than leather because its easier to harass rich women than motorcycle gangs
  • My inner child thinks you're a big poopy face
  • Eagles may soar, but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines
  • Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and good with ketchup
  • They say I have A.D.D. but they just don't understand. Oh look! A chicken!
  • How many of you believe in telekinesis? Raise my hand.
  • National Sarcasm Society. Like we need your support.
  • When Life Magazine asked comic Chris Rock if America is ready for an African-American president, Rock said, "It's ready for a retarded president, why wouldn't it be ready for an African-American president?"

Lovies! --Jen

Apr. 12: Poof!

You parents will appreciate this one.

Apr. 12: ClubPhoto's demise

I've done tons of research on photo processing sites, and one that impressed me from the start was ClubPhoto. They had low print prices, the same quality of other printers and excellent customer service. They also offered frequent specials. And they quoted me on their "customer testimonials" section so I admired them even more. What's not to love?

A couple weeks ago I started to upload some images to my ClubPhoto account and although I could log in fine, I kept getting errors when I started the upload. It was late at night and I figured maybe their site was going through maintenance and I'd just try the next day. Still no work-y.

I tried again late last night and couldn't even access their site. Again, I thought maybe they were doing server maintenance. I tried again this afternoon and still couldn't get in. Time to Google, no?

It didn't take long to find out what happened. Here's the scoop, according to Michael G at Multiply and recgroups.com. ClubPhoto abruptly shut down their business last month, with absolutely no advance warning to employees, affiliates or customers. You'd think they would at least have a notice on their home page, an apology, an explanation, something. But visit ClubPhoto.com and you'll just get a DNS error.

Time to find another printing service...

If you're a fan of 4" digital prints then here are just a few of the other sites that offer them.

Of these, I have experience only with winkflash. You might want to check out this web site, which rates online photo processing companies and lists prices for common print sizes. It appears to be updated semi-regularly. Oh, and if you're wondering what's so great about 4" digital prints, read Fotki's description. FYI, they are also called 4D, 4xD, 4x, 4x5, 4x5.3, and stuff like that.

RIP, ClubPhoto. I curse the a-holes that bought you and ruined you. --sob!--


Apr. 11: Cookie cutter post

craigslist is a great place for so many reasons. One of the features that keeps me checking in is the "Best of Craigslist," and this is one of the best from December 2005. Yeah, I know it's old but it's no less amusing than if it were written this morning.

By the way, this was result #6 when I googled "sea monkey" (there ain't enough room here to explain why I was googling "sea monkey," OK? I just was).


Apr. 11: Watch it

If you haven't programmed your TiVo to regularly record The New Adventures of Old Christine yet, you're missing out. The brother is the best! The show is consistently hilarious. Vic thinks I like it just because Blair Underwood is on once in a while, but that's really just a bonus. A big, big bonus. He is yummy.

C'mon, Season Pass™ it.

And lastly, I leave you with this little treat to brighten your day:

I hope that makes up for the annoying Pillsbury Doughboy video playing every time you visit this page. Lovies--


Apr. 10: Misc. links

Sorry if I mentioned any of these things before. I was just going through a bunch of well-hidden bookmarks and I felt like sharing. Because that's the kind o' girl I am. A sharer. It's a curse, but I deal.


  • Game Revolution presents the 50 worst video game names ever.

  • GlitterMaker.com lets you pimp out your name (click the link at the top) and save it as a graphic.

  • The Webby Awards limit their winners' speeches to five words, which means nominees have to get pretty creative. Here they are from 2006.

  • Shopping for airfare? Using psychics, an abacus, trends, horoscopes, statistics and a Magic 8-Ball, Farecast.com tells you if you should buy now or wait.

  • Printing coloring pages off the Internet is a huge treat for our kids--you'd think they've forgotten about the piles of coloring books throughout the house. But if you're looking for just the right picture, you might be able to find it at this web site or maybe this one with the weird name. Kids' party tip: print out coloring pages to fit with the party theme and keep guests busy until all have arrived.

  • Before we went on vacation and left the kids with their grandparents, this came in handy. It's a medical consent form for children, and you can personalize and print it free.

  • Bookmark the super deals page at the Office Depot site. Check it often. I'm not sure why most everything is ridiculously inexpensive.

  • Get free samples of household items and cosmetics at walmart.com.

  • A couple sites with hot and/or juicy celebrity gossip--and unfortunately, way too many pictures of Lindsay Lohan and Britney Spears--are CelebSlam and The Superficial.

  • I saved my favorite for last. These cruise photos are so bad, they have to be real! That site should totally have a caption contest.

That's enough for now.

Apr. 10: I'm a-scared

I think it’s pretty normal that we all have irrational fears (and yes, I realize that statement is an oxymoron but I’m not gonna fix it). These are some things that freak me out, and in my little brain they are totally rational fears.

  1. I never, ever sleep on my side with the back of my neck uncovered. Why? Because this would leave me completely exposed to a vampire’s attack. For some reason the front of my neck is safe.

  2. Spiders. I hate ‘em. Like most kids, I had tarantula nightmares for years after seeing the Hawaii episodes of The Brady Bunch. Don’t try to explain all the good things spiders do. I won’t listen. To me they’re all hairy, fanged, murderous beasts. Needless to say, I don’t do that "rescue" thing when I find them indoors. They get smooshed as quickly as possibly, preferably by anyone other than me.

  3. Movies/TV shows where someone is being watched and doesn’t know it. When I was about 12 I was on a babysitting gig and watched Little House on the Prairie; remember that harmless little program? Yeah, the scariest thing that ever happened usually had something to do with that diabolical Nellie Oleson, not a stalking and rape. Sheesh. I watched the whole episode, turned off the TV and sat frozen on the couch until the parents came home. I hardly slept that night. Or the next night. It completely freaked me out, especially the scenes shot from the clown/rapist’s point of view. I just couldn't get it out of my head. No thanks. Just writing about it gives me the shivers again. I lost sleep over The Firm too, both while reading the book and again after I saw the movie. There was also a CSI: Crime Scene Investigation not too long ago that was a little too stalker-y for my liking. Nothing gives me nightmares more predictably than seeing this kind of stuff. Yikes-a-hootie.

    Now, you’d think after that Little House episode that clowns would creep me out too. They don’t. I’m not terribly fond of clowns, but I’m not afraid of them.

  4. After taking a shower, I always put on a robe before I walk out of the bathroom because I’m never sure what’s going to be on the other side of that door. No question where this overcautious behavior stems from; my King Kamehameha Meanie Big Sister™ threw me outside naked after my bath many, many times when we were little.

  5. If Vic is already asleep when I go to bed, I always check to make sure it's really him before I climb in. I check again if I get up to go to the bathroom during the night. Thank you, When a Stranger Calls.

  6. Fire. I’m actually quite fascinated by fire—just ask my burn-scarred lab partners from junior-year chem—but I’m deathly afraid of freak-fires. Y’know, the ones that start during the night and are caused by excess lint in the laundry vent or a short in a power cord or spontaneous combustion or a spark from a hair dryer being blown into my hair while I fan the flame as I innocently groom myself. I think this fear is partly because of a story I read about Helen Keller once where an extension cord under her bed sparked a fire and she barely escaped. (Yeah, thanks to whoever gave us that historical biography book series. Good choice.)

  7. Falling down an escalator. I mean, can you imagine the bruises?

Call me crazy, whatever. Let's hear some of your cuckoo fears. I'm sure they're much more rational.

P.S. I'm also afraid of cuckoos.

Apr. 9: More Adeline

Ted e-mailed more pictures. They can be found on the Ted-Jocelyn-Alec-Abby-Adeline page, but here is my favorite (I love "beaming big sister" pics!). Click it for a bigger version.

Hope you had a fun Easter. Bunny didn't bring me squat.


Apr. 7: Welcome, Baby Adeline

Ted & Jocelyn's new baby girl is here. Adeline Marie was born yesterday (April 6) at 1:20 p.m. As you can see, Abby is very pleased to be a big sister!

In case you're keeping track, this makes eight grandchildren for Darlene and Wellington; five girls and three boys.


Apr. 4: Where croissants come from

Oh my buddha, this is a snort-coffee-all-over-the-keyboard one.

Apr. 4: Deanna's big day

Happy Birthday, Deanna, and best wishes for a glorious day with nonstop goodies bestowed upon you!

Many lovies from one of your oldest friends--


Apr. 3: Caricatured

Here's what I like to imagine I really look like (in South Park form). I'm raunchy but still a teensy bit attractive, at least attractive enough for the cover of a Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition. Also, I have perfectly applied lipstick because that's very important.

Alas, here's what I actually see when I look in the mirror though. Way too prim and proper. (I had that rep in college, but I'm not going to venture a guess as to why.) And nowadays I'm mostly just grouchy, chubby and pale with bad skin and brows that are way overdue for a waxing. Sad, hm?

And then there's Vic. What a saint. Thinks he's so perfect. Whatever.

You, too, can create South Park characters. Here are a few sites to try:

Have fun.


Apr. 3: Poor excuse for a trip report

I give up. I'm never gonna get the trip report for our WDW/cruise vacation written up. But I did finally post a bunch of our photos, so feel free to browse the album.

And speaking of pictures, Sonya sent some new ones of the fam. You can find them on The Nienhuis Family page.

I love when people e-mail me pictures I can put on the site. It makes me really, really, really, really happy. I also love Stripples™.


Apr. 3: REMINDER: 5k run/walk
