Not-so-daily

Cowbell Hero Oh dear! Look at me, Miss Daily Blogger, missing a couple of days!

Well, for whatever reason, I'm off my blog feed, and blogging isn't high priority right now. I'm just going to go with the flow and ride it out and...whatever other metaphor you think applies here. Everyone is busy enough at this time of year without having to feel guilty about whether or not there are regular updates. Yeah, I'm just trying to make myself feel better. Just a picture or three tonight.

I mentioned my new T-shirt. Check it out, bay-bee! The only thing missing is...more cowbell! My friend Darren posted a picture of it on Facebook a while back and I said "WANT!"...so I got! Is this the coolest shirt ever, or what?

Mad Housewife wine

When I was buying wine at the grocery store the other day, I came across this brand. I didn't write a diary entry about it, but it made me chuckle, and I had to get it. I love it! For any mad housewife, I’m guessing that the number of servings in the bottle is exactly…one.

As I wrote on Facebook, I think "Green Grass and High Tides" could very well be the Kobayashi Maru of Rock Band. I cannot finish that bitch...yet. I won't give up, but after two tries today, I had to move on. I was in a cold sweat, kinda shaky, because that song is mindfucking with me, I swear it. That's the last song on the first Rock Band, so I moved on to Rock Band 2. Much more fun, because you can make your own avatar and earn money, fans, and the chance to play new venues. Meet my alter-ego, Beth Anne. Okay, same name, but this Beth Anne is from Chicago and plays guitar for the band I called Awesome Sauce. She's kind of a punk, with straight brown hair cut in The Betty style, and the palest skin possible. And she’s as short as you can make an avatar on there. Yeah, that's about right. Rock Band2 avatar Everyone have a great holiday, and rock on!

  1. OK. Let me address the second item. Mad Housewife? Sounds like something Suzy Jenkins aka Sally Brooks would be swilling. I shared her holiday greeting on FB.

  3. I like Awesome Sauce.

    Now will you please stay at your keyboard and move your fingers over it, punching occasional keys, so that we are not deprived.

  4. Hi Beth,
    Awesome Sauce is an awesome name ... you should copyright it!
    Best,

  5. As a so-called "daily blogger" myself, I can relate. I'm not in the mood right now, either. I guess it has something to do with the season. Or maybe I've just become a lazy bum.

    Your bottle of "Mad Housewife" wine would go well with the bottle of "Bitch" Merlot I bought the other day. It was meant to be a joke, but we opened it the other night and found it to be excellent!

  6. I do think that 'Awesome Sauce' is a great name for something... and you would be wise to get the rights to it...

    So Beth Anne is sorta punk ... snobbish NYC punk, Bright Eyes Emo..? Or is it real Detroit MoTown sound for the band style?

  7. "For any mad housewife, I’m guessing that the number of servings in the bottle is exactly…one." We at Mad Housewife Cellars absolutely loved this and had to post it on our FB & Twitter (www.facebook.com/madhousewife, www.twitter.com/themadhousewife). Cheers!
