STUFF, STUFF, AND MORE STUFF

I've been missing in action for a few days. Crappola I've tried so hard to keep up with everyone and respond to all the wonderful comments I got on my SITS day. I have these bloody stubs instead of fingers...I am currently typing with my teeth. Not that I'm complaining mind you...it was quite a rush to have so many guests!

I got tagged for some stuff...some of it is pretty old...but I'm gonna throw it all in here together.

Bassie and lady...the furry owners of Tracey at I am me (who has been one of my best blogging buddies since I started this whole bloggy thing) have tagged Crumpet & Ozzie with a doggy tag! You should go over there and check those furry buggers out...they are adorable! And pet the cats while you're there so they don't get jealous.

The dogs wanted Crumpet & Ozzie to answer the following questions:

1. What breed are you? Crumpie is a soft coated wheaton terrier...the sweetest breed on the planet. Ozzie is the spawn of satan...or as the AKC calls it...a mini schnauzer.

2. How old are you? Crumpet is going on 3 (and his bad mommy never throws a birthday party)
Ozzie is in his terrible twos...and will be his entire life!

3. What is your full name? Crumpet (what you think she's nuts and gives us middle and last names....she's dippy but she aint crazy) Ozgood (and Crumpets lying...she is crazy)

4. Do you have any nicknames? Crumpie, Crumpetybumpety, Crumpmeister, Crumpydoo
Ozzie, Ozmoz, shithead , bad bad dog!

5. Where do you usually sleep? In my dog bed in the master bedroom
in the doggie jail in the master bedroom (I tend to wander at night and must be caged like the wild beast I am)

6. What is your favorite thing to do? ride in the truck with my head out the window
Sit around and plot how to destroy the universe.

7. What is something unusual/interesting about you? I am hypoallergenic...which means that my asthmatic mommy is not allergic to me and I don't shed...ever!
I can kill a bunny in under 3 seconds! (bunny lovers send all hate mail to ozziebunnykillingninja@hotmail.com)

8. Who is your best friend? Mommy because she rubs my belly (really it's cheryl because she sends me the best dang dog cookies on the planet..but I didn't want to make mommy sad by saying it)
Crumpet...I live to torture him...but he loves me anyway.

9. Did you go to obedience school...if so were you "TOP DOG" or did you flunk out? I was born perfect...I don't need school to teach me manners....I just am a good dog.
It wasn't my fault, and I've been kicked out of way better obedience schools than the last 5 that booted me!

10. Can you do any tricks? I can sit, stay, and roll over (the last one so you'll RUB MY BELLY) Silly Wabbit Tricks are for kids!



My new bloggy friend Heather from Sugar & spice mostly nice ( go see her NOW! she's loads of fun) tagged me with a picture tag. You're supposed to go to your 6th flolder and pick the 6th picture......YIKES...I'm sure hoping this isn't the one from that naked happy dance I did the other day! WHEW...it's actually this one.......
It's my sweet daughter-in-law Jessica and her pooch Optimus...whom has a fetish for shoes!




Heidi from Adventure Girl Wannabe Was kind enough to give me the Kreativ blogger award. Her blog is really cute...if you haven't been there you should take a peek. Thanks Heidi!!!
This one also comes with a tag....

6 things you value: My amazing Husband (who still wants to kill me over that picture of him sleeping....boy you should have heard the threats of the pictures he was gonna sneak on here of me) Yikes....changing password!!!

My Kids....I love and miss them so much. They are the coolest people I know.

My Parents....talk about amazing...how lucky was I to be raised by loving, decent, honest people.

My dogs....they are my best buddies.

My Faith....it keeps me sane in this crazy world.


6 things you do not support

Mr. Obama....he scares the living crap outta me!

Animal cruelty.....just breaks my heart

Abortion....I don't understand the whole "woman's right to choose"...you do have choices...you can choose to use contraceptives, abstain from sex, get yourself fixed, give the baby to a loving couple who will cherish and love it. But you DO NOT have the right to choose death for another human being. It seems hypocritical to say "I have the right to choose" then deny that same right to the child you're killing! Off my soapbox now.

People in Massachusetts who drive with their stupid heads up their stupid butts....there is a reason why they are called..."massholes"

Hypocrisy.....it just makes me want to spit nails!

Men who cheat....FREAKING HECK MAN....just leave if you're not happy, say something....but don't do it behind her back!! ARRRGH...gee can you tell that I've been there?

Ok...now that my blood is pumping...


Kyley from Crazy Kyley (don't you just love her...ME TOO she rocks) tagged me with a question tag

What were you doing 10 years ago? I was single, living in Utah, and working my butt off trying to make a good life for my kids.

What things are on your to-do list today? YAY it's my day off, and other than going to get a coke at McDonalds...I plan on blogging till I drop. Who needs clean laundry?

Favorite snack? CHOCOLATE, CHOCOLATE, CHOCOLATE!!

If you were a millionaire you would.....Buy the billboard across the road from where I work...and put up a big sign that says "neener neener neener I don't have to work for you no more"
Move to someplace WARM and right on the beach. Start a charity with my kids to rescue abused and abandoned doggies. And hire a personal trainer and chef so that I could get skinny again....or maybe just get Dr. Ray to chop off all the excess!

5 places you've lived? Utah and Massachusetts...thats it...this girl doesn't get around much.

Here's to hoping you all have a muy fabuloso day!!!

Sincerely Yours said...

Morning Nikki! First I want to say Thank you for your sweet comment bout me on Janie's giveaway announcement!!! You made my day dear!! Second I agree with all of your "do not supports"!lol Especially the Mass driver comment! Being a native who moved away I swear my head off(silently of course!) every time I drive from Connecticut to Mass!!!!It's unbelievable the difference in manners on the road up there! Have a great day - Sincerely, Jeannette

Sincerely Yours said...

Sorry me again! I forgot to tell you I LOVE YOUR HAPPY NEW LOOK! Jeannette

Twice as Nice said...

You just start a blog and you're all blog-down. It's your own fault you know. That's what happens when you're so damn good! LOL People just keep askin' for more more more.

Suzann @ Lavender and Roses said...

Nikki -
You always bring a smile to my face. Your blog is so cheery today! The new look is so spunky!
Poor OZ - I love that dog. Yes, Schnauzers are my all time favorite pupper-doggie.
AMEN sista on Obama bein' one very scary dude. Even my 7-year old says he's scary. I agree on the abortion too. Apparently we have the same opinion on lots o' stuff. Love ya girl! Happy Monday. Perhaps a nice manicure would help those fingers to feel better.

onlymehere said...

Wow can you pack alot into one post!! Loved the doggy tag too! About the purse....it was sitting on my camera case so there. I'm just a little crazy about having a clean purse, I dump it out and clean it out at the very least once a week! Wish I could be that clean with my house where I can just overlook clutter most of the time. SIGH, I'm so warped and backwards! Have a great day off!

Heather said...

Glad to see we aren't the only ones with one perfect dog and the other that is part, well, insane!

Mrs de Miranda said...

yay for awards!! you are so loved! I have an "ozzie" at home too and she loves to terrorize her mom!

Darlene said...

I just love these awards you won!! It is so much fun finding out more about you and your doggies!!! What a fun post....I ALWAYS look forward to your posts!!!

Chris said...

I'm always so happy to see a new post from you. Love your spirit.

Hugs,
Chris

salmagundi said...

Congrats on your awards! Also, enjoyed getting to know you better through your answers. I know what you mean about Mass. drivers. In May, we were just trying to get out of Logan Airport driving to New Hampshire and wondered if we would make it!!! Sally

gingela5 said...

Wowzers--that's a lot of tagging! You know I love the dog tag--I'll have to go check that one out! I feel like I'm getting to know you better one tag at a time. :)

Mamarazzi said...

i love this CUTE blog. i did a random bloggy business post today too. all those tags, gotta keep up!

i did leave you a little L-O-V-E over at my place though...come and get it and pass it on!!

oh and Obama scares me toooo. a lot.

Anonymous said...

Right on about Obama, I understand that people want a change but for crying out loud not this guy !!

Great post Nikki,
Kathy :)

Jan said...

Neener neener neener. Hilarious. Your dogs live quite the life girl.

So fun to get to know you. You have so much coked energy. I got the McDonalds thing. Good luck with the daunting laundry piles.

Obama scares you? Why would someone like that scare you? Oh, you must have read about him...Yikes for sure.

Beverly said...

Holy cow, Nikki. 236 comments!!! It's no wonder you are down to bloody stubs. I don't know anything about SITS, but you must be feeling the love.

I wish for a neener, neener billboard, too. Ah, to dream. ;-)

Jade, Will and Illy said...

HAHAHA I love the interview with your pups! So cute :) Happy Monday!

Carolynn said...

Nikki, you rock! I've missed you, but you've more than made up for it.

Crumpie, it was really nice to get to know you better, you little snookie-ookums.

Ozzie...Bunny and I are not talking to you. Go lick your bum or something. Thbbbbt!

Cute photo of your daughter-in-law & Optimus, although I'll bet the naked happy dance photo would have garnered a few more interesting comments...

Shelia said...

Morning Nikkiness! Loved the interview with the pooches. I'm ready to see another of their adventures!
Be a sweetie and rub those little fuzzy bellies,
Shelia ;)

Bo said...

Nikki you are a bright spot in my day everytime you post...'cuz there's no telling what'll come out of your little noodle-dome, but it'll bring smiles! ;-) Bo

squawmama said...

First off I alwways miss you when your not popping up on my favorites... Second I loved all your answers but the puppy interview was the bestest ever... how cute.. and third but not least... LOVE YOUR NEW BLOG LAYOUT>>>


(((HUGS)))
Donna

Amy said...

I love these 'getting to know you' type memes..interesting stuff there. Count me in on the chocolate for snacks!! Yummo :D

Michelle said...

Love the interview with your doggies! Too funny!

Mariafer said...

Left something for you at my blog

Ally said...

Wow what a post! I'm getting addicted to your posts, so funny! Love the layout too!

Betty said...

Wow. That was a lot of information. Great to get to know you better.
I loved your answer on abortion and dido on the hypocrisy thing!

joelandbecca said...

What can I say?! You are the cutest thing ever. Obama scares me too. If he becomes pres, I d on't want to be like the Bush haters, who have totally dethroned the respect of the President. But, it will be very hard for me and I will be searching in my heart to find support. I was told the other day that Palin is backwards, and I asked...because she is pro-life? so does that make me backwards? And she couldn't say anything, because she is my friend, but she obviously thinks so. The choice was made when two consenting adults CHOSE to have intercourse! Can you tell I am so upset by this issue!? Oh and the cheating thing-now my husband is so great and I love him...but he knows that I get so enraged by that (one of his friends came to visit us and told [friend meaning from before he (my hubby) ever joined the church] us he was cheating, and I kicked him out of our house and told him Joel will not be speaking to him until he comes clean with his wife) Well, aren't you sorry you barked up this tree. It all get's me upset just thinking of these issues!

SO, I don't think it is illegal for us to be friends. Promise! And I promise I am not a heathen because I went to the U. That is really the only time I get upset, is when some people act like I made a bad choice by going to the U and not the Y. Well, me and President Hinckley. (which I was on institute council with his grandson). Besides, the U was started by Brother Brigham too. So you see, we can never be like Barack and John....we have so m uch more in common than that!

I was out of town Friday and just had to catch up! Congrats on the big win (and don't worry, I'm okay with you keeping george)

Good to know there are other Odd Thomas fans out there :)

joelandbecca said...

why did that publish twice? yikes! sorry!

Tabitha Blue said...

Haha, so nice to read about you and learn more!!!! Those tags are fun to do, but can definitely put some extra work on those finger tips... that are already busy making cyber friends!! LOL :)

Happy Monday!!

~Tabitha

big hair envy said...

My dog read the post from your dogs, and he would like for me to arrange a play date. We have a HUGE piece of property, WAY off of the road, with a field and two creeks....and a lot of rabbits:) His only request is that they bring those frosted doggie snacks - he has a bit of a sweet tooth!!!

imjacobsmom said...

Nikki, Miles takes offense - Not ALL schnauzers are a spawn from hell.....he was born good, too. (But I've had one that was - I left him with the ex-husband -they deserved each other). And about the clean laundry - I had to chuckle, I have a mountain sitting behind me and poor Jacob is wearing his last pair of clean socks today...Robyn

Shannon said...

OMGosh the doggy Q & A was great! LOL funny!!

mommaof4wife2r said...

ok...u and me...we despise many of the very same things. super fun!

Eudea-Mamia said...

Seriously, I'm THIS close to getting a Crumpet of my own - he's scrumptious!! (sorry Ozzie - you're cool too).

And LOL to Massholes - I'm so telling my hubby that one. His headquarters is in Mass., and he always has some colorful words for a couple of his coworkers.

Em

QuirkyLoon said...

Massholes?

LOVE IT!!!

Thinking, thinking, thinking...

Mesa....messholes? Nah.
AZ a-zeeholes!

Yeah, I like it!!!

hee hee

Michaela said...

Loved the dogs interview!! Too cute! I'm right there with you on all the things that you hate, well with the exception of Mass drivers, never been there - could they be worse than Chi-town drivers?

niartist said...

Just $6700 Nikki! (The tag on the driftwood lamp) hubby was right about Trianon, but Stacaro isn't expensive, well compared to Trianon. If you do get to go, please let me know. We missed each other when you were in the falls, and I'd love to go shopping with you in Toronto while your hubby has to work! Corruption is done best in person - though I promise DH I won't let you charge more than me! ;)

Liz said...

It sounds like your Ozzie and my Mabel could cause some serious trouble together. :)

Mabel is a permanant two year old.

~Tara said...

Wow, what a post! Sure you didn't miss anything?!

ROFLMAO about the billboard and being from Boston, I soooo get your madness with drivers around here (I, of course, am not one of them!!!)!

Love your blog's new look, btw!
Have a great day!

Justine said...

What a fun post to read, Nikki! Hey, I've heard Wheatons can be hard to train and that they're very stubborn. You don't find that to be true? It's one of my hubby's favorite breeds.

Justine :o )

judicreations said...

Hi Nikki
What a wonderfully fun filled and information filled post. I've learned so much about you and your little puppies too. I've smiled and I've laughed and I've pondered and I've just loved it.

Your daughter-in-law is so pretty and her little puppy so cute too.

I laughed on the weekend about your post too and giggled when i saw your hubby having a little snooze and your remarks about that. Fun-ny.

I really enjoy your blog. Thank you for brightening my day!
Jusi

zenmom said...

This was so much fun to read! :)

Lo said...

I'm giggling too hard to read your post from the "I'm typing with my teeth" then as I'm scolling down I see "Mass-holes" , Okay I'm just going to have to try to read it again!

Amy said...

I'm glad to hear you had such a great SITS day turn out! Thanks for the comment! And I agree- it's funny how many lds people I've met out here in blogland! :)

Heather said...

I love it!! I knew you'd be a hit on your SITS day. I'm glad it was fun.

Mariafer said...

Savvy Mode SG said...

Cheryl said...

Oh Crumpet, If I wasn't already spoken for you would be the perfect man!!! hehehe
Love thier answers Nikki. How cute and I can see the little devil in Ozgood. Will try to get some bones out this week for my wonderful little guy and his devil sidekick. :) I agree on your six or twelve things you said. Amen Sister. I am sad to know that you were a part of the cheating. How terrible.
Thank you for stopping by,
Cheryl

Firefly said...

Of course you're able to write...you do it every day on your blog and it's awesome...

I'm my worst critic so probably that is one of the reasons I don't have anything published :)

Pennies In My Pocket said...

Wooohooo for the awards! The doggie one was too cute. Oh and after reading about your views I see we have a lot in common. Very well put about the abortion issue. Seriously. So sorry to hear that you have had to deal with the cheating crapola! I can't even imagine how hard that was. Huggggs.

Oh and I have to tell you. The comment you left on my blog yesterday, "If I can make my hubby laugh...I hear angels sing!" just totally makes me so happy! I love that phrase. AWESOMENESS! :)

~melody~

christie said...

WOW! So fun to learn more about you!
The photo of your daughter in law is cute!

Fifi Flowers said...

You NEED a break after all that typing! But that is just NOT going to happen... YOU are the POPULAR girl around town! I love your posts and your comments!

Michael said...

OMG, I just about peed my pants I laughed so hard at the Crumpie/Ozzie meme. Way too freaking funny!

And the billboard idea...LOVE IT :)

WheresMyAngels said...

Holy cow woman you also hit the jackpot on comments!! lol

You should totally go buy a lotto ticket. Then send it to me before the numbers are announce!

Oh wait, I am not suppose to be here, I am picketing you! hee haw

Tracey said...

Love you, Nikki!!

jill jill bo bill said...

Okay, I go to work and come home to be the 60th comment?! WOW!!! And do you want to start that place that takes abused and neglected dogs now? I can leave Gus on you doorstep and Ozzie will suddenly no longer be the Spawn.

Tracey said...

ok, I have recovered enough to type :)
I LOVE THIS POST, thanks so much for letting Crumpie and Ozzie do the post.....IT WAS GREAT!!!!
I also have the "kreativ blogger" award for you....you don't need to do the post again or tag or anything....I'm just sharing the love I have for your "KREATIVITY"!!
Tracey

Sue said...

I've never seen anyone type with their teeth......your post made me smile...I needed that today. I have a migraine thinking Obama might get elected.....I'll re-distribute my own wealth thank you very much Mr. Barrack...

beth at aunties said...

I have never in all blog land ever seen anyone as popular as you are and it is your own darn fault you have to type with your teeth!
You crack me up so bad and I enjoyed each and everyone of your tags.
I would love to be in a lesson you teach at church.
I agree so much about Obamma. He is one scary dude! I thought No one could drive as bad as those who live in this beautiful state of Utah. LOL Massholes? LOL Okay I snorted. Congrats on your award. You really are awesome!

Smiling, Beth

Anonymous said...

did you know there are fewer abortions under a democratic president?

nikkicrumpet said...

yeah whatever anonymous...how about NO abortions under ANY president...then there will be something to celebrate!

Jori-O said...

AMEN nikkicrumppet! Amen!

april kennedy said...

Good thing you had the day off...you had a lot of catching up to do!

You know, I know parents say they don't have favorites...but it is sounding like interviewee #1 is...well...how should I say it without hurting oz's feelings...liked a little better.

My husband barged into the office last night and told me our dog, Zoe, was dead. I kind of freaked out. He didn't say much more. I imagined her lying somewhere not moving...then he added...she pissed on Blake's bed. Oops...so you mean she is alive...phew. Not sure why she did it, but every once in a blue moon she does. I said as sweetly as can be, "I'll wash all the bedding, no problem, just please don't threaten a drop off to grandma's house for permanent residency!

Read every new post and you are a funny and very insightful writer. I understand fear also; mine is of McCain and Palin getting elected. Great country that we live in either way; to be able to agree to disagree.

Cheryl Kanenwisher said...

Ok, so I forgot to say...I'm getting my diet coke at McDonalds today too!

Kathi~Lavender, Lace and Thyme said...

Dear bloody stubs,

I hope you're on the mend! LOL! What a fun post,I'm glad you left the laundry....go ahead, be stinky! Rock on!

Have an awesome day!
Kathi :)

bmommy said...

77 comments! Wow, where do you find the time!! Great post, but I only really got to skim it because your music popped on really loud some reason and scared the beegesus out of me :o Good song though..

nikkicrumpet said...

Hey Tiffany: Glad you stopped by, and I totally agree...being able to not "agree" on issues, and the freedom to say how we feel, is one of the blessings of living in this great country. I have no problem at all with people not agreeing with me. I have lots of bloggy friends who love O'bama...and we are still friends. Hopefully we can all agree to disagree and still enjoy each others company.

GaleForceOne said...

I still get upset at that picture! That was my FAVORITE PAIR OF FLIP FLOPS!!! And what did I do after he chew'd um apart?...I thought to myself, those are still wearable, might as well get my 2.50 out of them. So now I walk around with beatin ridden looking brown flipFlops!

I also would have like to have seen the ummmmmmmm /whispers the naked happy dance...lololol

nikkicrumpet said...

I love you Jessica!!! And NO you wouldn't!!!

Pat@Back Porch Musings said...

Here I am a day late and a dollar short, visiting your blog! Great post!
