Confessions and Clarifications

I was originally gonna post about the Pope from the perspective of a perplexed Jewish Princess, but the commentary I’ve read from yesterday’s post necessitates a change of direction!

My stream of consciousness initial thoughts about the whole surreal Pope flying away on the helicopter thing…Kiss the ring–germs on the ring–destroy the ring–all those men… I tried to do the math in my head  and wonder how many of the men surrounding the Pope as he left are pedophiles or were once molested by a priest, That, in a nutshell, is the post I planned to present to you.


Yesterday I wrote a post of appreciation for My Life with Lucille mostly ‘cos she’s a wonderfully sweet person and she bestowed upon me (Enchanted Seashells) a nomination for the Epically Awesome Award of Awesomeness.

I posted HER answers to the questions so that you’d get to know a little bit about My Life as Lucille.

Are you following me so far? Stick with me, it’ll all begin to make sense.

SOME of my fantastic wonderful stupendous brilliant beautiful witty intelligent readers THOUGHT I was talking about myself but I was NOT.

This is most definitely an emergency post situation! It’s imperative that I set the record straight and follow through with MY award!epicallyawesomeaward

The Rules For The Epically Awesome Award Of Awesomeness:

1. Tell 10 epic and/or awesome facts about yourself.  That’s it.
2. Pass it on to 10 bloggers you think are awesome and/or epic–or both.


1. As much as I love my Chanel Grand Shopper Tote, I have a favorite t-shirt my son gave me about six years ago, full of holes, and I wear it ALL the time.yaleshirtholes

2. I was in the film, “Stuntman”; here’s a pic of me with Chuck Bail, a really nice guy! He’s a director and a stuntman.

3. If, for some reason, I don’t have a book to read, sometimes I’ll read a cookbook until I fall asleep

4. I LOVE to clean house. I really do. That doesn’t mean I want to clean YOUR house, so please don’t ask.

5. I’m five feet tall. I confess that I have a Napoleon Complex. I get lost in a crowd.

6. I have a lot of stuffed animals, but they don’t sleep with me, although they’re close by!stuffedanimalschair

7. I know NOTHING about Google Analytics. I can barely cut and paste html into WP widgets.

8. Once in a while–when my tugboat man and I are out shopping or running errands, i get really dressed up, keep my (Chanel) sunglasses on inside,  and pretend I’m a famous actress and he’s my security, and sometimes I hear people whisper, “Who’s that? Is that somebody?”  This is very, very true. 

9. I love seashells, even random piles of them on our deck.shellsondeck

10. My favorite holiday is my birthday because every seven years, Mother’s Day and my birthday fall on the same day, which makes my son’s birthday in March my equally favorite day to celebrate.

Let’s recap and clarify…yesterday’s post was all about My Life with Lucille. Today’s post was all about ME, Enchanted Seashells, Confessions of  a Tugboat Captain’s Wife.

Whew! I feel better, how about you?

  1. Well, thanks , Hon; I have had a couple of Awards which I have neglected, but now I will have to get to after accepting yours!
    Before we get any farther, though ,let’s clear the air,(sort of). You are far from alone in being perplexed; The Catholics of the world’s heads are spinning and have been for some time. You want to know what’s wrong ; what has been going on, well, Babe, so do we.What is out there that people are seeing that is calling itself The Church is not what we have bet our lives on.We don’t know when it was hijacked and if, indeed, it is being held hostage, in exile or has been murdered. but we know it has been assaulted.. Don’t judge anyone who wants to still call themselves a Catholic by what you hear in the news…and please don’t ask them the obvious, because, we don’t know ‘WHAT THE HELL?’!
    Now, you have me getting my little self to work on the blog, thanks…I think!( One of the other awards you are going to laugh your little behind off about, but the gal who sent it meant well and is so sweet to me…can you guess which award it is?Laugh yourself silly, darlin’.)


    • I did laugh to myself, I know which one it was, and I told you, so I’m not the only one who thinks you’re sweet! I don’t really understand any religion, so it’s not just yours that’s confuses me. Don’t get offended, but for ME, it’s all just a waste of time, only my opinion of course. I never liked being signed up to go to sunday school, hebrew school, and synagogue, even tho my grandfather was a rabbi. Personal preference that’s for sure!

  2. Congrats on your awards and thank you so much for passing it my way!! 🙂 I love that you pretend to be a celebrity, that’s hilarious and I can just imagine how well it would work. 😀 I can help with Google Analytics, should you ever need the help, or the HTML and whatnot, just shoot me an email. Plus– loved the stuffed animals! Adorable! 🙂


  3. I am so disappointed! I was just getting ready to invite you round to my house and you say you won’t clean it. Oh well, at least I can say I know someone famous – my word, you’ve been in a movie and, with that hot little bod, I’m not surprised at all 🙂


  4. well now that we all know I was the biggest dumbass out of the bunch– haaa
    Sigh..oh well. Hey you are one hot cha cha up there! Excellent REAL list. the first list totally came into my email as just a list– no intro or nothing. Just About me then boom…
    DOH– sorry dudette.


    • In all fairness to you, my dear, it was my fault for just doing a bit of cut and paste and not having a lot of control over this new 2011 theme (that was changed during my sitemakeover). It wasn’t saving things the right way and I was getting frustrated and just published it! Looking good in your twenties isn’t that remarkable…if I looked like that NOW, I’d be ecstatic! Happy Friday!

  5. The other day while watching someone eat seafood I got to thinking. If you ever go in a restaurant do you take any shells with you? 😉 See what you’ve done to me?! Every time I see a seashell this is what happens. 😆


    • Wow. Well, you know one of my little secrets. yes, I do take the shells, and when my neighbor had a clambake, I took those too, and when we were on Nantucket, we found dumpsters full of shells, and I climbed in there–in the rain–and took as many as I could until my tugboat man said it was enough, I said there are never enough as far as I’m concerned, but I still regret not “rescuing” more! I’m happy to know that you’re thinking about me! 🙂

  6. Hey, thanks for the award. I needed a little goodness today. Nothing really wrong, just on top of being really busy, my children are ruining things around the house – not on purpose but still – and this includes my computer. I am typing on my son’s laptop, which I’m not used to using. I don’t like it and I am annoyed. Anyway, I love your ten epic things – especially your Yale shirt from your son, and the fact that you pretend to be a famous person sometimes. And of course you with Chuck Bail. I don’t know who he is, but you look hooooot!


    • I should have been more specific about him-he’s a director and a stuntman. Don’t I miss the days of those abs? You bet I do. Thanks for the compliment, but it’s not hard to look like that when you’re in your 20s. Sigh. Sorry for you, it sounds like you need a break and it must be hard to even go for a walk in that snow! Our temp today? 80+ but windy. My contacts are not happy. Give your kittys a hug from Auntie Rose.
