smock's southernism of the day


when faced with a person of limited intelligence, you are dealing with a person who doesn't have the sense God gave a billy goat.*

*bless their lil' ol' heart.

iffin' you're a might worried about something, you could say that
you're as nervous as a frog on a busy road.

an oddie but a goodie?

first of all, no, this is not one of the smocklings. smockdaddy brought this little gem (?) called a head snuggler to my attention. i mean, we all know how sad it is to see our little ones' heads flopping around on road trips. i'm thinking about getting one for greer rose, but i just can't quite seem to wrap my head around it. __insert raspberry here__ and then read more about the product here at yoyomama.

smock's monday music


this song is featured at the very end of one of my top ten fave movies, the professional (original title, léon), which happens to feature gary oldman as stansfield, his greatest performance as a villain. tidbit of trivia: during the scene when stansfield 'interrogates' mathilda's father, played by michael badalucco, oldman smells the father, and gets extremely physically close to him. according to badalucco, he had no idea that oldman was going to smell him, nor that he was going to get as close as he did. badalucco says that in the film, his look of discomfort during the scene is completely genuine, as he felt decidedly intimidated by oldman, and the physical proximity between the two made him very nervous. the good news is that this video has nothing else to do with the movie and is quite beautiful and melancholic.

another little tidbit that i came across...
Sting (from a 1993 promotional interview): "I wanted to write about a card player, a gambler who gambles not to win but to try and figure out something; to figure out some kind of mystical logic in luck, or chance; some kind of scientific, almost religious law. So this guy's a philosopher, he's not playing for respect and he's not playing for money, he's just trying to figure out the law - there has to be some logic to it. He's a poker player so it's not easy for him to express his emotions, in fact he doesn't express anything, he has a mask, and it's just one mask and it never changes."

iffin' you think someone's not got their facts straight, you might say:
you're barkin' up the wrong tree and sniffin' in the wrong hole.

Outside my window... i see the scary neighborhood freakazoid wearing a cowboy hat and cheap flip flops. he totally gives me the icks.

I am thinking... it would be nice if he would just move away. for good this time.

I am thankful for... security systems and the second amendment.

From the kitchen... teeheehee.

I'm am wearing... black shorts; gray shirt; black sandals.

I am creating... avon invoices just as soon as i get off this entry.

I am going... to women at the well a noche.

I am reading... just this morning finished the heights by peter hedges. awe. some.

I am hoping... that it doesn't storm.

I am hearing... children playing.

Around the house... yeah . . . not today.

One of my favorite things... is waiting for me at la madeliene's.

A few plans for the rest of the week: getting avon orders together and catching up on end-of-the-year school stuff.

Words I'm pondering "Money isn't everything" because i have to pay a small ransom to get my car out of the shop.

Here is picture thought I am sharing... of my eldest (14 yrs.) and my youngest (6 mos.).
