An Open Letter to Samsung

Dear Samsung,

I’m so sorry I broke up with you a couple years ago.  It was a mistake, and I realized it not long after.  That other guy, he made himself so tempting, the Carrier promised me all sorts of good things if I left you for him. 

He wasn’t all he was cracked up to be.  But I was committed by then and you know how it goes, I had to stay, you know, for the bills.  The bills just weren’t ready for me to leave.  So I hung in there the best I could.  He wasn’t a bad guy, just the wrong guy.  He was nice and all so I don’t want to say anything bad about him but, like I told the Carrier when I called the other day, it just wasn’t love like it was with you, Samsung.  There were issues.  Nothing I couldn’t handle, but I confess, I sort of resented having to handle them, especially when I’d never had those issues when I was with you the first time. 

So, I just waited.  The Carrier told me that once the bills were ready, I could switch back, and that finally happened!  The Carrier agreed to dissolve my relationship with the other guy and today I signed into my Samsung account and it’s like you never left, like you’ve been waiting patiently for me this whole time.  And I can see you’ve been working out because you’re much nicer than you were when I left, and you were pretty buff back then.  Woo! 

It’s good to be home, Samsung.  I’ve missed you.  I won’t leave anymore.  I learned my lesson.

Can I be silly for a minute?

I caught this interview yesterday, because I’ve come to really love the whole Avengers movies that have come out in recent years.  I’m married to, and the mother of, comic book heroes fans, and it’s just natural that eventually the love would flow to me as well.  I became a big Iron Man fan, thanks to Robert Downer Jr’s portrayal of that character, until I saw Captain America.  Cap totally won me with the line, “There’s only one God ma’am, and I’m pretty sure He doesn’t dress like that,” from the first Avengers movie.  Now I’m a Cap girl, all the way.

So the next Avengers movie is coming out in a few days and there are interviews with the stars all over the place, promoting the movie, which looks like it’s going to be epic, by the way.  I caught this one with Jeremy Renner and Chris Evans, and just cracked up.  Jeremy Renner and Chris Evans criticized for ‘sexist’ comments

Today I see that a bunch of people have their undies in a bunch over the cracks they made in the interview.  I nearly broke my eyeballs from rolling them so hard.  I’ve heard a lot of women say worse things about men after they’ve been dumped – real women talking about real men, not fictional characters.  I think our society may have lost its sense of humor.  So I tweeted #BlackWidow loves #TheHulk because #SizeMatters.  Winking smile

Think anyone will get the joke?

Well, not really a conversation with words but with behavior.  I went to kiss my kids goodnight, and guess what greeted me?


Are they goofy or what?  LOL  This is what happens when Dad’s favorite movie is Alien, and you get them video games like Alien Isolation

Such is life around the Darc House.  Open-mouthed smile

Frou Frau

Okay!  I confess!  I admit it!

I am half Frou Frou

*sigh*  Now you know.

All my nails have been breaking, and while I try to be nonchalant about it on the outside, on the inside I’m screaming, “Don’t look at me!  I’m a freak!”  I like my nails like I like my hair: Really. Long.  And when they’re short and unpolished I feel naked.  Of course, I don’t like to polish them when they’re short because then people notice how short they are.  Yes, I know.  I am totally aware of how much I seem to contradict myself. 

I adore girly things like pink, and ruffles, and lace.  And one could make a case that I still play with dolls too, because really, aren’t The Sims just the e-version of Barbies?  I suppose part of me panders to my 8 year old self.  I’m okay with it.  Besides, it’s not like I make my husband sleep in a canopy bed!

Do they make canopy bed coffins?  If they do, I want one.  That may be my only chance to ever have a canopy bed, lol. 

Silliness aside, I figured out just why all my nails broke, practically down to the quick, all in the same 1-2 week period.  Knowing that nails grow at a rate of 1/8 – 1/10 of an inch per month, I counted back to about mid-late August.  (The length of the pink part of my nails)  So what happened in mid-late August?  Oh yes, the Salmonella episode.  Those 10 days when I was sick as a dog and was rather hoping I would die, and could barely keep anything down.  And apparently it was the gift that keeps on giving if my nails are any indication.  I certainly never expected that particular result, that’s for sure. 

Now that they’ve all broken off, I guess I can look forward to them all growing back in healthy again, and I can get back to my regularly scheduled crazy paint jobs.  Smile

So that’s my Public Service Announcement – don’t eat anything unless you know the one who prepared your food washed their hands first.  With soap. 

And that was my Hausfrau side talking.  Winking smile
