I noticed a guy staring at us in the grocery store last weekend. He stopped us in the frozen aisle, between waffles and Taquitos to tell me how he looks at women’s feet everywhere he goes. He then told me that I get the award for having the prettiest toes in the entire store. What exactly does one say to something like that? I kindly thanked him and pushed the racecar cart in high gear to get the hell outta there.

I had a night home alone last week while Jamie went to play poker. I found myself watching “Legally Blonde” (the first one) and just staring blankly at the TV. I’ve seen that movie a zillion times and I can repeat it verbatim. Not something you’d expect from a big fat tomboy, eh? It’s like a train wreck, I just can’t look away. Plus, I used the “bend and snap” trick too lure Jamie in back in the day.

I can tell I’m getting older simply by the fact that I hate free shit. In my younger years, a free pen, mouse pad or return address label would make my heart flutter. Now I get annoyed when I get free shit in the mail since I feel guilty throwing it away but have no more room in my junk drawer for useless crap.

We spent July 4th home with the kids and they were in bed by 7:15. Jamie and I felt like we needed to do something patriotic so we watched “Born on the 4th of July”. It was not quite the boom boom hurray America theme we were looking for but it was a great movie.

In other patriotic news, we sang Happy Birthday to America several thousand times on the 4th and even a few times since then. I hope America appreciates all of the beautiful singing we’ve been doing for her lately.

Jamie and I were recently discussing why I wouldn’t make a good professional singer and Jamie concluded that if Paris Hilton and Brooke Hogan can release albums, anybody can. My next project is to take singing lessons and cut an album. You guys will buy it, right?

We experienced the ultimate pizzajection in our house on Sunday when both kids rejected pizza for dinner. Graham spit his out and threw it on the table while Elliot smeared it around on her face and neck. Graham won’t eat pizza, burgers, hot dogs or any other appealing foods. He won’t even eat cake or cookies or brownies and it hurts my heart when I see him reject foods like that. Him being switched at birth is the only explanation for such behavior.

    I’ll take your free crap. Really. I will.

    It’s more than disturbing that there’s a dude wandering grocery stores looking at women’s feet.

    Pretty toes, huh. Who stops someone to tell them that?

    I think pizza is the only food my son will consistently eat.

    Happy Tuesday.

    I’ve heard (heard not experienced) about every pickup line but that one is classic or creepy.

    Should you take Graham into the doctor? Rejecting pizza; he has to be sick or something.

    Of course I’d buy your album! I’d put it on the shelf right between Deanna Carter and the 70’s dance mix.

    We wanted something patriotic to watch on the 4th, too, so we looked through everything we had and picked Wanted. Come on, what’s more patriotic than a couple drooling over Angelina Jolie…together. It’s like Democracy in action, people.

    Maybe he was the guy from the Bachelorette that got rejected a couple of weeks ago – the one with the foot fetish…He probably figured you’d recognize him and you’d get the warm fuzzies if he complimented your pretty toes…or he was hoping to get lucky…(snicker!)

    A kid that rejects pizza, hot dogs, cake and cookies? I agree with Michele – you might have to take him to the doctor… 😉

    Happy RTT! Only 9-11 hours before I’m home! 🙂

    That foot guy was really creepy. If that’s his usual approach to women I’m guessing he doesn’t date much.

    My son won’t eat pizza or almost anything else. He lives on crackers, milk, cheese and air.

    Happy RTT!

    Ah…I still love free shit but I keep getting KY (which hurts since I’m cut off til the new damn year) and Tampons (which I will never need again mwah ha ha ha ha). I could go for a slice of pizza now, though.

    I don’t think talent matters anymore. As long as you’ve got a fabulous rack and “forget” to wear underwear in public, then you’ve got nothing to worry about.
    You’ll send me concert tickets, right?

    Yes, I will totally buy your album, you don’t even need to take singing lessons. My kids won’t eat cereal or burgers or anything that’s quick and easy to make either. I can’t even blame a hospital switch, since I was the fool that only fed them organic “real” food when they were little. I’m so damn dumb! Wish I could go back in time and fix it!

    You KNOW I’ll buy it. Especially if you include a hidden Random Tuesday track.

    As for the foot guy, I congratulate you on your Piggy Perfection, but that would have freaked me out and inspired me to ask for help getting the bags to my car…

    OMG about the toe dude! I would’ve screamed FREAK and ran hysterically from the store.

    I’m with you on the free shit too, annoying especially when it’s something you’ll NEVER use. I also hate getting religious shit left on my door. Just sayin’…. lol

    Yeah, “Weird Dude, Aisle 3!” –okay. I’d be sooo outta there on that one.

    You know, enjoy that the kids don’t like the “good” food yet, because there comes a day, and it might not be soon, that they WANT to eat it and then you’re sorry because they eat it all and there isn’t enough for you. And it costs you three times as much to go out to eat and you can’t afford food anymore. Okay, so Col took 17 years to get to that point, but those 17 years were freakin’ GLORIOUS!! Now, I can’t fill the dude up. Ugh.

    So…what DOES he eat?

    The toe thing is creepy. I once had a guy lurk behind me in line OBVIOUSLY looking down at my chesticles. I turned and busted him and he finished looking before stating unabashedly, “I was just looking”.

    Um…yes. yes you were. Ew.

    Would you be offended if I called you an ass for putting that damn movie in my head? I’m currently entranced in “Legally Blonde 2” (much to Ryan’s misery) on FOX. Thanks for that. 🙂

    A co-worker has a tattoo on her foot. We were at a meeting where a former co-worker of mine was at as well. He kept starring at her feet and we decided he had some kind of foot fetish. I don’t think it was the tattoo that did it…he’s just a perve. I worked with him….I should know. He had Playboy in his top drawer…of his desk I mean.

    Um…gotta go now, I’m disturbing myself.

    Seriously—toe stalker in the store? You should contact the manager next time you see him. We can’t just have men salivating over feet in public. That’s icky.

    Remember Mr. T had a single released too? I don’t know if he had a full album. And what about David Hasselhoff?? Seriously-ANYONE can have an album.

    While I LOVE to meet weirdoes that make for great stories and fabulous randomnessess, this dude is too much for me.

    I would have run out of there too!

    I know I’m a little slow here. It’s July 27th and I’m just catching up on your blog. But let me tell you this: We were out of town this past weekend and we saw this guy walking around the little pizza place we were eating at without his shirt on. It’s a resort-type place so shirtless men isn’t really that big of a deal. What caught our eyes was that this dude had really big nipples. Like the actual nip part was big and weird looking. So I get in line behind him to get a drink and happen to look down and what should my eyes fall upon??? HIS FREAKING TOE NAILS WERE WELL MANICURED AND PAINTED RED!!!!! Not even kidding. What the hell?? And his feet were nice looking. His ankles were thin and his feet were more feminine looking than mine!
    The end.
