Something About Nothing..........# 9

Welcome to your home away from home!



Everyone is invited to join us.



You can lurk, read and post here.


The only rule we have is to play nice.


Jump in and say what is on your mind, ask a question about the darkside, talk about your insurance rising due to a teen now behind the wheel, complain about those next door neighbors, talk about the weather, tell us about your diet, talk about your vacation, tell us a good joke or just show the love for the darkside, etc.......



The house is almost ready for the homies.
I just need some help in decorating it now........
bring anything you need to get us started.

We started the first Something about Nothing on April 10, 2007.
4 years ago almost.
4 years..............wow

No one ever said I couldn't follow directions, so here goes:

1. On my mind - I have a horrible headache because I was almost smeared by a stupid HS aged kid on my way to work today who totally ran a stop sign. I completely slammed on the breaks, like 100%, and could see his scared face in the car as my car kind of fishtailed because the ground was somewhat wet/icy. And of course the kid was stupid/inexperienced enough to then slam on the brakes as well, with his car directly in front of mine, instead of continuing on out of the way. Didnít hit but it was very close and everything in the car flew forward and that obviously included my head and neck. Going to take something soon here and go to bed since itís late but wanted to check out the new digs.

2. Darkside - only question is if/when we will EVER be able to plan a visit to see WWOHP!

3. Insurance - 2 teen boys already on the policy and I just booked teen #3's road test for May yesterday! We're already at 4 times where we started with our rate - how high can we go?

4. Nope, no issues with the neighbors - that's good!

5. The weather. It's Green Bay - sure you can figure it out from there! Although it did get up in the upper 40's today so I can't complain......eh, sure I can! I want 70 and sunny!

6. Diet - unfortunately is in the desperately needed but non-existent stage!

7. Vacation - as soon as I pull out another day of my trip report, you guys will be the first to get the links!

8. Good joke - I'll have to ask Stephen for that one since he's my relative joke expert (or at least pun expert for those of you who read his trip report day!).

Welcome everyone and hope all are doing well!

Hey......found everyone

I`m sat in our new home with a seaview from my new room......cocktail in hand of course and ready to party.........even though it is only 9.20am over here.

On my mind.....not a lot....as usual!

Weather.......bloomin miserable

Darkside .........only 150 odd days now till we`re there

Diet..........Not Good!!!! Enough said!!!!

Jokes........not on a family site

Teens behind wheel.......Kyle is progressing well with his driving lessons.........he will be wanting to share my car with me as it`s only a little VW, but insurance for teen boys is massive!!!! Couldn`t even consider putting him on the bigger car that Tom has.....would cost more than my car is worth!!

Apart from that life is ok at the moment. Popping off to do some housework soon........although I`ll spend longer thinking about doing it than the actual jobs themselves

Have a good day everyone and enjoy our new home........Thanks Mac

I had a stick of CareFree gum, but it didn't work. I felt pretty good while I was blowing that bubble, but as soon as the gum lost its flavor, I was back to pondering my mortality.

new digs!!

1. On my mind - what mind?

2. Darkside - fingers crossed any of a handful of old codgers decides to retire @ DH's work so he can snag a week in October this year

3. Insurance - ssssssh, mine doubled when #3 started to drive, holding breath for renewal notice's terms.

4. neighbors - i've given up ever thinking mine will ever follow the golden rule

5. The weather - 60 degrees & sun the next 2 days woo-hoo!
6. Diet - took me a month to lose 6 stinkin pounds

7. Vacation - freely admit to being a vacation 'ho

8. joke - in honor of St Patrick's day:

Q: Why did St. Patrick drive all the snakes out of Ireland?

A: He couldn't afford plane fare.

On my mind: DD took my debit card last night to get gas, and she still has it with her at school, I just text her to guard it with her life (sometimes things get stolen at her school)

Darkside question? What is your favorite attraction?

My teen and insuranc, so far so good, we got through the first year with no tickets or accidents

I like the neighbors, but I am a little tired of one of the neighbors 2 dogs, that run loose, but I'm easy going so.....

Sunny and in the high 70s (sorry)

Diet: not on one

Next vacay is the beach in Gulf Shore, AL in April!

My joke (DS told me this one yesterday, and he just laughed and laughed..too cute) A cowboy rode into town on Friday, stayed two days and left on Friday. How is this possible?









His horse's name is Friday


Have not been to the darkside yet, but am loving the planning!
