i will not smack my mama

health - i am ill. spent all of last night resting (and baking cookies, but that was very restful) and i STILL woke up with a sore throat and lots o' mucus. but my mother would be so proud of me, i have made an appointment with my ear nose and throat specialist for tomorrow morning.
environment - it is just Pleasant McPleasantville over here. i just had a nice conversation about my various allergy meds: singulair, astelin, mucinex (and a variety of vitamins). anyway, it has been 3 or 4 weeks of niceness here. i am gonna go out on a limb and say this might be a permanent change here.
crafts - today we made these lovely memorial day wreaths. oh, how i love to make wreaths out of paper plates.
my birthday - my assistant is planning a birthday party for me wednesday. my favorite kid is "secretly" making me a present. it's not so secret though because every few minutes he comes up to me and asks me stuff like "miss dewey decimal, what's your favorite color?" and "miss dewey decimal, if you could have something very expensive what would it be?" he was very perplexed when i said i wasn't really interested in diamonds and would rather have a wii.
misc - i just learned a new phrase: "it's so good it makes you want to smack your mama." i must be old because i told a child that i found this phrase offensive.

oh my goodness- smack your mama??!!!

i am your mama, and i do not want to be smacked, but...

i must confess-- that phrase does have a certain catchiness.

I love that expression! (but your mama seems nice and probably shouldn't be on the receiving end of that)

By the way, we missed you terribly last night, but I enjoyed your pics @ the Brooklyn Bridge! I hope they can cure what ails ya.

Happy early birthday :)

I, for one, love that phrase. But in my quest to attend next year's Passover at your mama's, I cannot let you put it to use.

I'm thrilled you're seeing your E/N/T doc tomorrow -- ask him if he can find my favorite sweater. I haven't seen it anywhere. But really, maybe he can figure out what the hell is wrong with you -- once & for all. You've been sick waaaaay too much. I'm gonna start docking you paid friend days.

Hey Fifi,

Flattery gets you everywhere with the Blogger's Mom.

You're on for Passover next year, and there will be more plague toys!!

fifi said...

I'm thrilled & terrified in the same breath. Plague toys? Oy vey, I have so much to learn!

Miss Dewey Decimal said...

i think my favorite of the plague toys are the "wild beasts" finger puppets. oh those wild beasts! what will they get into next?

fifi said...

I can't wait. Do you have any locust transformers or blood-water Barbie pools?

Miss Dewey Decimal said...

yes and yes ... not to mention our death-of-the-first-born euthanasia chemistry set.

fifi said...

As long as it's not a death-of-the-firstborn Operation game. Those are just creepy.
