“Why”, you may be asking yourself, “would anyone start off a blog with the peen emoji on it?” The answer is simple; it’s because my darling Richy managed to send basically that emoji to a client we wish to do business with. 

This all began yesterday with Richy sending me twenty one attachments of pictures of a project proposal he had written. He wrote with three different pens and markers because they each kept running out of ink; he wrote all of this on graph paper and took three pictures of each page. Then when the pictures came through, they were all completely shuffled and out of order. I basically got twenty one pictures that all looked like this: 

Twenty. One. Pictures. Of this batshit nonsense. 

With the help of Hootchie One, Tena, I was eventually able to come up with a project proposal out of this chaos. (And really, I couldn’t have made heads or tails of this without her help). So, five hours later, FIVE freaking hours, I end up with a typed proposal that was coherent, correctly labeled and set out for the client. Then I went to bed. Richy did not.

This morning I woke up to a friendly note telling me that Richy had “fixed” the proposal and the spacing and the wording, and he’d done it from about 1am to 4am. He also went ahead and emailed it to the client. He never said a word to me that he was going to do this. He told me after it was too late. Well, I opened my computer with trepidation and logged in to see exactly how he had “fixed” it. 

Oh boy! Had he ever fixed it. It looked completely different. He tried to get fancy with bold print and underlines and bullet points and for some odd reason a rogue punctuation mark that didn’t belong. Let me just illustrate this for you. Here are some examples of what I found…: 

  1. Chimney repair, exterior    {top to bottom}
  2. At top of Chimney, the existing cap/crown is separating from it’s foundation atop the first course of brickwork.[SEE PICS #1, 1A & 1B].

Notice the heavy use of bold print, which he then also underlined (the underline is not pictured because I can’t get it to, but it was both bold and underline). Notice the curly brackets used instead of parentheses. Parentheses is used in a parenthetical way to make something clear to the reader or as an aside. Curly brackets are used to indicate a group of things go together. He also used all caps to say “see pics” and he also referred to pictures as pics. This is a business proposition, not a funny “pic” of a panda you send to people who you want to like you. *Note: I actually will like you if you send me funny pics of pandas!* 

Anyway, there was also a lot of underlines and bold fonts that he didn’t end or start with at the right spot; such as:

>(Not including recommendation: Sealant)  

And

> (Including: Sealant)

You’ll notice in the two examples above, the ‘Not’ and the “i” in ‘including’ are underlined. Also, in the second example, the bold cursor was dragged from the symbol and across the first parenthesis. 

But the pièce de résistance (translation: piece of resistance) was the almost obscene internet sensation, the emoji wiener, (usually sent to other women when making fun of a random dude’s penis after he has sent an unsolicited dick pic) that he sent to this client. 

We all know this set of characters to indicate genitalia:  8>>>>>>>

He managed to send this: Base total estimate:  (A) $975.00 >>>>>>>(Not including recommendation: Sealant)                      (B) $1075.00 >>>>>>> (Including: Sealant)  

It may be just my dirty mind, but I can’t help but see a gomer pointing out how much the sealant is going to cost. 

And all of this has been already sent to this client. I keep telling myself it could be worse… but I honestly can’t figure out how. 

Oh!

And when I mentioned that Tena and I worked on this for five hours, he looked at me, with all seriousness and asked why in the world it took me five hours to do this, because, you know, it really shouldn’t have taken that long. It was just six pages. 

You are all invited to the funeral. Please bring sandwiches. 

Finish Line!

Last night I finished my painting and it’s frame. I painted and distressed the window frame and added the panels. I think it turned out pretty good, but I’d like opinions if you have them.

This one is available for purchase, I am also open for commissions. Feel free to email us for information at 2humblehootchies@gmail.com

The finished piece!

The Man Card

Today’s topic is a direct result of my experience with men and their reluctance to seek medical care under any circumstances. 

Last night my darling Richy nearly impaled himself. I’m talking, he was actually afraid to move because he didn’t know how he would get himself off of the branch that was jutting up from the ground. He accomplished this near-impalement by jumping off of a ledge onto a crumbling brick wall that was already leaning about 30 degrees. (Get ready to make a surprised face…) because funny enough, the crumbling wall fell out from under him when he landed, and sent him sprawling with all that momentum behind it. He landed on his back on top of where a large bush had been sawed down, but still had about twelve inches of very sharp branches sticking up. His spine landed on the biggest limb and then his side landed on a shorter limb. That’s where he thought he’d been impaled. 

This is an actual picture of what Richy fell on! Yikes right!??

Richy lay there for what seemed like five minutes, though I’m sure it couldn’t have been that long. Finally, he dared to move and realized that even though the sawed off branch had cut him and hurt him, it had not actually stuck itself inside of him and he was able to get up. Unsurprisingly – He packed up and called it a day, and came home.

This morning, the man could barely sit up. It took him a good seven or eight minutes to actually maneuver himself out of bed. I saw him grimace and heard him groan. I saw his eyes water with the pain; and this is a man who was shot in Bosnia, he has a purple heart. He fell down a flight of stairs, broke his kneecap and helped a friend move the next day. Hell, he was bitten by a rattlesnake. This is not a weenie of a man, and his back was hurting him to the point that he couldn’t put his own sweater on. 

I pleaded with him to take the day off today and go to an urgent care or doctor, so obviously he listened to me and did exactly that. Haahaa! I love a good joke as well as anyone. No, what he did was give me a face that clearly stated that I regularly drool on myself and he went to work. 

Why?

Is there some health class guys take in high school where they tell them if they seek medical attention, their genitals will fall off? Is there a Man Card they have to turn in at any emergency room they dare to enter? Maybe men just assume if anything medical has to happen to them they are going to end up with a surprise prostate exam, I don’t know. 

Man: “Doc, I broke my arm and there is a bone sticking out from my elbow.”

Doctor: “Well, drop your pants, we need to make sure your prostate wasn’t affected.”

I think this is what they must believe, otherwise, what reason do they have to avoid an exam and possibly legal drugs?

I’ll tell you, I don’t know what makes them run screaming in the opposite direction of any medical staff, but they all do it. My dad had a heart attack and ended up with a quadruple bypass. This was a bad heart attack. It took me arguing with him all night to get him to go to the E.R.  An ex of mine dropped the front end of a loaded trailer on top of his foot. It turned purple and black and he couldn’t walk. No doctor. Another time, that same ex nearly died of pneumonia (to the point that his doctors told me to go ahead and call any family who might want to see him) because he wouldn’t go to a doctor during the previous two weeks that I had tried to get him to go. My brother has had two really bad illnesses because he avoided having a doctor anywhere near him until he was thirty-five years old. I have seen men I personally know, duct tape a wound, but refuse to get, you know, sterile stitches. 

Now, I know we don’t all have insurance or the money for medical bills, but come on, there are just some things you should get checked out. Like, landing on a sawed off tree branch, spine first; little things like that.

Rebranding and Back From the Near Dead

Thank you all for your patience. I know it’s been crazy quiet over here for a couple of months. Anywho, as some of you recall, I was traveling earlier this year and once I returned home I got sick… well that sickness drug out for over 5 weeks and to be honest I still don’t feel 100% yet. (Hugs and love to all of you who checked on me)

In the midst of that, the #COVID19 #coronavirus #pandemic #lockdown #quarantine situation happened and life got hectic in a whole different way so we have been spending the time thinking things over and have decided on a re-branding of sorts that will include partnering with a fellow blogger so we will soon be known as the 2 Humble Hootchies (our blog name and url will be changing today ^_^. This will also take care of the issue I’ve had with Facebook not liking my blog link off and on for months now)

In short, we are not dead/retired over here just healing, thinking, working on interviews with different businesses/organizations, spending a lot of time helping elderly friends/neighbors and enjoying the upsurge in family time. Feel free to let me know what you guys have been into 🥰🥰 Love you all and see you soon as the….

Warm Salads!

We are salad lovers here! Love love love salads and they are especially handy if you are watching what you eat. But the downside is the same old lettuce base with the usual toppings gets old quickly so we have decided to change it up!

It is cold, windy and rainy outside and it hits me – warm salads (sounds perfect for winter right?) I plopped this into YouTube search and one of the the first videos that came up sounded like a winner! It was a Warm Crispy Mushroom Arugula Salad made by Healthnut Nutrition. It looked crazy delicious and if we were not getting ready to travel I’d be making this today! In her video she said it was a recipe she recreated from a dish that she had at Terroni‘s. I am super excited to try it when we get back and once I do I’ll let you guys know all about it!

Sausage Potato & Leek Soup

I’m not a cold weather person but one of my favorite things about winter is that it’s the perfect time for hot, hearty soups and stews.

One of my more recent favorites would be – Sausage, Leek and Potato soup. It’s fast, easy and delicious. Between the minimal ingredients, quick cooking time and the FullStar Veggie Chopper this was all prepped and done in under an hour! Picked everything up from Kroger on the way home and TADA – dinner. 🍲

1lb ground pork sausage, crumbled
2 -3 large leeks, white and light green parts only
Fresh garlic ( you measure this with your soul)
2 – 2.5 pounds of cubed/chopped potatoes
7 cups chicken broth
1 cup heavy cream or milk (I used milk)
Butter (2-3 tbsp)
Dill
Salt and Pepper

Cook the sausage over medium heat in a large soup pot until done. Add the butter, dill, leeks and garlic and cook, stirring regularly, until soft about 8 or so minutes minutes.

Add the potatoes, broth, more dill (lol), salt and pepper to pot and bring to a boil. Cover and turn the heat down to low. Simmer for 15 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender/soft

Some people puree this with an immersion blender but I don’t – my family likes the potato chunks – but do whatever brings you joy. 🥰🥰

Blogging… How Did You Get Here?

In lieu of a long intro and a lot of hubbub, I’m going to cut right to the point of this short post.

What made all of you become bloggers?

I’m curious because I know when I started off on this adventure, I didn’t set out to become a blogger but that is where I happily ended up.

I wanted to share my experiences with people, places and products with others and it evolved into this.

Do you have a favorite platform? (Twitter, IG, Pinterest, Facebook etc.) Do you have one you can’t stand? Have you found any tools you can’t live without? (Tailwinds, MailChimp, etc.) Have you run into any scams? Are your family and friends supportive? Did you start out with a free blog or did you jump all in and get a premium paid blog with all the bells and whistles? Whats the biggest mistake you made starting out? Do you work mostly on your laptop or your phone?

Please feel free to share your story in the comments. I’d love to hear more about what makes you tick and your journey.

Nothing Like having Kids LOL

I’m behind on posting because life has been a busy busy thing, so I thought I’d drop something to make you all laugh today. Hang in there everyone, the weekend is approaching…. YOU CAN DO IT!!! * hugs*

We all know or remember this feeling… ease the baby down slowly then back away as quietly as you can all while praying the door won’t creak as you shut it lol
Trying your best to clean with a toddler in the house is an accident waiting to happen. We’ve all been “rear-ended” like this before… (same applies if you have a cat or dog too)
This on needs no explanation heh heh heh
My parents were kings of this one… I’m not bad at it myself. Teenagers will test you in ways you never thought possible. *WooSaaaa* (@mawadu78 me and @thevirginiaimp lol)
I once found one under the drivers seat of my car in the middle of July with my first child – like an idiot, I opened it. Never… NEVER again did I make that mistake. Directly in the trash is the only place for long lost anything with dairy in it.
No matter how the internet uses this cat I find myself relating LOL

Hope I was able to get you giggling. Have a great Thursday and thank you for stopping by my little corner of the web! The memes used in this post were found HERE on Buzzfeed!
