BEHOLD: THE TRUCKASAURUS REX

Last weekend, Allan and I attended our first Monster Truck Rally in Chicago. Our first and perhaps our last. Why did we go? Why not! Allan always wanted to as a kid and now that we’re adults and allowed to spend our money on whatever we want, we fulfilled his childhood dream.  It was exactly what we expected. Lots of toothless spectators, both young and old. Mullets. Goatees. Overalls. John Deere hats. Drunks. These guys: Allan and I tried to take a picture together but I got distracted… …by trucks doing this: And then of course, there was Truckasaurus. The announcer told the crowd a VERY long story which was basically the plot synopsis of Jurassic Park while truckasaurus got in position to eat a car. The kids loved it. After eating Taco Bell’s newest creation: The Doritos Loco Taco, I’ll admit, it wasn’t our classiest date but money can’t buy you class, ok? I heard that once from a housewife in a VERY classy reality program on Bravo. We also discovered these: And these: I need to go on a diet. Love,...

Most Disappointing Season In Bachelor History?

Dear friends, I’ve received some flack for neglecting tweeting about The Bachelor Finale and the After the Final Rose show last night. Let me apologize and say, was that NOT the worst?Boo to Ben and Courtney for letting us down.  TEARING UP? REALLY? I liked you Ben, last season, when you told Ashley to get over herself (not your exact words) after she let you propose to her only to reject you.  But watching you and Courtney cry on the couch last night was just pathetic. So depressing. At least be honest. If you’re ACTUALLY crying, it’s because you clearly aren’t a good match. You made a mistake and if you haven’t broken up already since last night, do us all a favor and end it.  And please, US Weekly, I beg you, DO NOT put Courtney on the cover again. You’re only giving her what she wants. Also, Bachelor Pad producers, to you I say, NO! Don’t invite Courtney on the show. I had to endure her all season. I can’t do it again unless…. …Courtney was dating Kasey and Vienna comes back to challenge Courtney to a dual for his heart (and tattoo) and just as Vienna tries to choke Courtney with a rose (figuratively), she screams, “Guard and Protect this!” only to be stabbed in the back (figuratively) by  Shawntel who has once again returned to see if Ben is still interested while Courtney skips off exclaiming, “Winning! Winning!”(literally). Then I could be persuaded to watch. I now offer the tweets I would have sent if I hadn’t been so annoyed by the whole event: Who is...

The Greatest Gift

So my sister Mary is working on a book and has been going through old papers, pictures, etc. She recently tweeted her latest finding: @maryungrangsee Sorting papers today & found my 1991 BD present from @jennakimjones #bigspender #shewas5 What more can you expect from a 5 year old? It turns out, however, that I gave the greatest gift of all: the gift that…increases in value. Good thing you kept that card, Mary. Because you can now sell it for…. $4.50 on Ebay. Happy Birthday to you. Love,...
