Blue moon, full moon, Altoids . . . . . you'll always see Karen pop up!!!!!

BTW: Karen, I LOVE your avatar. It's GREAT

Ann: Yes, the blue moon is wreaking havoc in my life. So far this month, my AMAZING grandmother passed away, and of course they found the "blip" in that artery in my head. DEFINITELY wreaking havoc. Usually, I have had good experiences with blue moons. I guess this is what I get for having good experiences all my life! Personally, I think if I find out that there is going to be a blue moon during another month, I may just go into my cave for the entire MONTH. :ph34r:

Of course, I've been in my "don't want to bother anyone with my woes" cave for quite some time -- but, I need to laugh about it, and lord knows, if I want to laugh, I just need to come here!!!!

Blue Moon. ...You saw me standing alone without a dream in my heart, without a love of my own. And there suddenly appeared before me the only one that my arms could ever hold. And I heard somebody, whisper, please adore me and when I looked, the moon had turned to gold.

Ann, my friend, look for the gold moon.

OK I have been cranky and a little bitter, so fill me in on what the Heck a blue moon is, I know what a full moon is. If I am going to use this as an excuse with family and friends I need to sound smart about it so fill me in.

I'm from Canada too and we get big moons out here.

Well that will at least explain my behaviour for May anyway.

Thanks for the excuse - no really I think I am naturally a little moody. According to my reading this will get better when I find a balance in my diet. I think it gets worse with me because I am obsessive compulsive.

For 3 years or more everyday was 2 raspberry waffles with 2 tbsp of Peanut butter and honey, 1 really hot cup of black coffee and 2 glasses of water. I tried to substitute the gluten free waffles, even tried making my own waffles. Not the same. New breakfast ritual is a bowl with 1 banana, 3 strawberries sliced and 1/2 cup of homemade chocolate pudding dumped over top.

One meal down, 5 to go. I eat 6 times a day so my sugar doesn't drop so if anyone has any snacky fun meals they would like to share, please, I'm all ears.

I really miss my granola bars!!! - Oh well life goes on!

A LITTLE bit goofy?????!!!!! <_<

A horse walks into a bar . . . . .

Bartender asks: "Why the long face?" :P

Just warming up. Haven't gotten to the "hind lick maneuver" stage yet.

ONE BIG MASSIVE ALTOID??????? My question would be "which party will be the recipient of such a curiously strong peppermint? Simply a question, that's all. :ph34r:

BTW: Forgot the rest of the backg-up singing:

Ba Ba Baba, Baba, Baba, Ba; Ba Ba Badag adag adag . . . Oh, forget it. I've been singing these lyrics over and over trying to get them out to write them, then I google'd it and can only get the stupid lyrics, not the backup lyrics for WAY too long. Poop. Sorry about that, for all you "GI" celiacs. You can get me back by saying, "Stagger." :lol:

Good point. Although I think Karen should let him out for selfish reasons. Her decision. She should be the recipient.
