Thursday Thoughts - lord it's like a hard candy Christmas

1. Picture me today, driving around belting out Hard Candy Christmas like a less sparkly and much less musically talented Dolly Parton.
2. Merry Christmas, shore house. You're getting updated lighting on the main floor - removing a ceiling fan, moving and replacing another with this one, installing new light over dining room table, installing new mini pendants over long counter where the sink is, and a new light fixture in the kitchen all in hope of improving the light on that floor which is terrible right now. Everything has been ordered, 3/4 of it has arrived, and work is scheduled for January 15. Who's in for some ceiling painting in March? Don't all shout yes at once.

3. I ordered Brite Bite Brushing Sticks that I will gum up with tasty things in an effort to get them to brush their own teeth which I am aware sounds fucking nuts. My I Heart Dogs order got three dog toys for shelter dogs and fed 29 shelter dogs. I love that. I don't love when all dogs swarm my face, which happens daily.
4. Speaking of dogs, I came across this review on Saturday and I was fucking roaring. What the hell is wrong with people.
5. Tis the season to wait impatiently for my nephew's arrival. Not as impatiently as his parents, I'm quite sure. I can't wait!!

6. I'm with this OpEd in USA Today: "A president who'd all but call a senator a whore is unfit to clean toilets in Obama's presidential library or shine George W. Bush's shoes." Shame on this unfit to be POTUS garbage person tarnishing the office of the POTUS and those on the sidelines cheering it on in some fucked up version of anti-political correctness. Hey...go fuck yourselves. How's that for political correctness?
Exhibit A on the left: the indicator of his attitude towards women that everyone willfully ignored.
Exhibit B on the right: sexual harassment in the workplace.
7. You're goddamn right it is, Merriam Webster.
MFD was in DC again yesterday protesting the Tax Scam and of course he found Senator Warren. This is so MFD of him, to get the picture with the person people want to get the picture with. He went as part of an action, not a day to put himself on the line for arrest. Shocker, he got arrested anyway, for singing This Land is Your Land. The Capitol Police apparently do not like that song being sung in a building the taxpayers own that is inhabited by people who work for us. He was home in time for his Code Blue overnight and home in time this morning to clean off my car because it seems like it might actually be a winter? Anyhoo net neutrality today, people. Get on the phones and tell Congress to stop the FCC.

8. It's not enough to thank black women for keeping a racist, misogynistic, anti-semitic adult man who molested 14 year old girls out of the United States Senate. Amanda sent me the link to Black Women Kept Roy Moore Out of Office. Here's How to Actually Thank Them last night because she knows me so well and knew I'd have an item on this today. My personal donations (I make two on 12/31 every year to send the year out on a good note) will be going to Higher Heights for their #BlackWomenLead campaign and  Woke Vote, grassroots organizers in the south who are registering voters and canvassing neighborhoods. I already donated to Stacey Abrams for GA Governor. Some other ways to turn words of thanks into action that shows true solidarity from Austin Channing:
9. Reminder:
10. Ecard of the week:

Ho-ho-holy shit it's
almost Christmas.


  1. Do those brushing sticks work well?? I need to get something for Nash.

  2. I cannot believe he ending up with a picture with Senator Warren. Of course he did.

    We've gone back and forth with a couple of different brushing bones. Scott also goes at their teeth with a tool to scrape tartar and that, honestly, makes the biggest difference.

  3. No amount of bleach could sanitize dingleberry-scissors for me to use or even touch. What the heck kind of dog breed needs this anyway?? I need something to brush Frannie's teeth -- she loves this cold weather and the frozen poopsicles in the yard that we missed. But unrelated - how awesome for MFD to get a pic with Sen. Warren!

  4. Ugh, painting ceilings and lighting fixtures, welcome to the past two months here. And last year. I'm really good at painting the ceiling, and then cheering on the person doing more of the work ;)! Walls, I'm your girl, short stuff just doesn't do well on the ceilings.

  5. I am so glad that Moore didn't win in Alabama but the fact that it was as close as it was is ridiculous. And the president is awful and those quotes are just...I can't even. Why do people think that's okay? Why?? Sigh

    I'm totally eating all the food at my work and it's such a problem. LOL I've decided I really need to start being better next week.


  6. A pic with Senator Warren... That is fantastic!!!!
    Love the word of the year. Men everywhere are shaking, haha... Some men, anyways. The ones who should

  7. can't with the review, I'll murder someone.
    Anyway, love all the lighting you picked, it's going to look great!

  8. Oh my gosh. That review is terrible and disgusting. Geez.
    I like your lighting choices! That's our style of decor, too.
    I was so pleased with the word of the year. I'm also always amused when MFD gets arrested for doing legal things. WTF.
    I really like that quote.

  9. The lighting is looking good!!! I love that MFD was arrested for singing This Land is Your Land. sounds about right these days. So awesome he got a picture.

  10. I spit out my coffee at #4. So jealous of MFD's selfie with Sen. Warren! Ugh it makes it hit home even more when Trump's awful statement is in writing with quotes.

  11. Last night I read some people had been arrested at the capitol for protesting the GOP Tax Scam Bill and I wondered if MFD was one of them. :D Love the pic with Elizabeth Warren. Honestly, when USA Today is writing scorch the earth op-eds, you're in trouble. He is not fit to clean toilets and certainly not fit to lead our great country. I love all your lighting choices. Very sleek and modern! Thank you for recommendations on charities to support Black women. We need to do much, much better here and we also need to have some difficult conversations with white women too.

  12. OMG that review...dingleberries? I CAN'T. Also, LOVE that pic of MFD & Sen. Warren :-)

  13. That picture of MFD and Elizabeth Warren is fabulous.

  14. I love that he met Elizabeth Warren. Also jealous.

  15. What the actual fuck? He was arrested for singing in the capitol? RID.IC.ULOUS. I'm so done with all of this. That Austin Channing tweet is too real. I love the shore house light fixtures. If I was in the market for new pendant lights, I would go for those. You really don't want me to help paint the ceiling, but I think it's a good idea to do it in January.
