Why do dogs have eyebrows?

Why do dogs have eyebrows?

IMG_1136

My dog doesn’t need them.
She NEVER frowns, because I’m sooo super nice.
Which is what I told Santa when I saw him in the mall.

IMG_1153
He didn’t believe me.
I didn’t believe he used enough conditioner on his beard.
Soooo, I found another Santa and tried to explain that I’ve been nice.

IMG_1149
He looked too darned surprised at my story.
Sooooo, I found another Santa at the grocery store.

IMG_1152

He couldn’t hear a word I said because of all his hair.
In fact, he didn’t hear anything I said this year,
which is why I gave him my wish list.

.

Wishing you a happy, merry, joyful Christmas!

Scrouge invented final exams

by Lynn on December 16, 2015

This is FINAL EXAM WEEK for my college kid.
Like any good mother, I asked Santa to bring her some easy tests.

IMG_1155

He refused my request and gave me a soulless stare.
I found another Santa and asked for his help.

IMG_1156

He refused my request and asked for directions to the nearest toy store.
I found ANOTHER Santa and asked for his help.

IMG_1154

He agreed to help, because he was afraid I’d eat the pom-pom on his hat.

I’ve hidden my husband from the public eye,
but today I’m going to reveal him.
(Please ignore the creepy look on my face.)

IMG_1142 2

I brought him to meet my fellow romance authors
at our annual holiday party.

Here he is among the presents.
Every year, we do a gift exchange.
The wrapping gets pretty, er, raunchy.

I was going to take Sherlock home with me,
but THIS WOMAN stole him from me:

Boo!

by Lynn on October 28, 2015

I’m trying to get ready for Halloween.
I need to scare kids away, because I want all the candy.
This might work:

IMG_0956

Nah. Not scary enough.
Gnomes are scary…how ’bout this one?

IMG_0830

Nah. He’s wearing headphones. He looks like a normal kid.
Don’t worry, though. I found the perfect scary gnome:

IMG_0828

There.
This guy will scare everyone,
and I’ll have ALL THE CANDY to myself.

Happy Halloween!!

Scary things

by Lynn on October 21, 2015

In honor of Halloween,
let’s talk about scary.

This is scary:

IMG_0853

Authors are terrified of mannequins.
Because we don’t know how to spell mannequin.

This, however, is VERY scary:

IMG_3268

Why is a lemon tart scary?
It’s downright mortifying if you don’t have $5.00 in your pocket.

And this, well, I can’t decide if it’s scary or not:

IMG_0867

Look at the picture.
I think the kid in the cart is pointing the way to the sales rack!
That’s not scary…that’s extremely helpful!

Are you afraid?

by Lynn on October 14, 2015

We’re approaching Halloween.
Here is someone who is scared of everything:

IMG_0969
Normally, dogs don’t scare me.
Until I saw this:

IMG_0866

I’m NEVER going to that park EVER AGAIN.
And I’m never touching a door handle ever again.
Which is why I’m trapped in my house, unable to leave.

HELP!

How to take 20 years off your appearance.

by Lynn on October 7, 2015

Last week, I promised to blog about something “helpful.”
To boost my brain, I visited my daughter at college,
…whom I had when I was seven.

Anyhow, I kept looking for inspiration.
You know, a sign.

IMG_3249

I bet you see these type of signs on every college campus.

IMG_3252

Yep, college signs were everywhere.

IMG_3271

Despite these signs, I was inspired.
So, I sat in the library and did some light reading.

IMG_3262

I thought I fit right in.
Heck, I looked exactly like a twenty year-old.
And then it hit me – reading Nietzsche takes 20 years off your appearance!
This is extremely helpful information that I can share with my friends!!!!!!!!!

The campus police were very nice when they escorted me out of the library.
I told them I was a “college senior,” but they insisted I was a “senior citizen.”

And then I wept.
And then I wrote a lengthy letter of apology.
To my daughter. And to the librarian.
And to Nietzsche.

Best things, EVER!

by Lynn on September 30, 2015

It’s about time we do a “Best Ever” post, right?
Here is something for the Art Historians in the audience:

0001-57392664

After I saw the mer-horse-maid, I was inspired.
I ran home and made mashed cheese and cauliflower.
Which ended up being more awesome than the horse statue.

My husband was so grateful for the fabulous meal,
he gave me a fortune cookie.
‘Cuz I love cookies.

My husband sleeps in the garden.

by Lynn on September 23, 2015

I have a terrible problem.

0001-57395200

I don’t think it’s weird to fantasize about a statue.
I mean, Michelangelo’s David is downright handsome.

0001-57393920

Okay. Maybe this whole statue thing is weird, so I’m gonna switch topics.
For the first time EVER, I’m going to show you a picture of my husband:

0001-57394508

He’s the strong, silent type.
Just the way I like ’em.

Why my kids shouldn’t read my blog

by Lynn on September 16, 2015

If you are my child,
STOP reading my blog.
Because today I’m talking about
my addiction to porn.

0001-57388655

Yes.

I. Love. Porn.

There. I said it. Don’t judge.

0001-57389640

And you love porn, too.

Especially food porn.

0001-57387690

And if I say “porn” enough in this post,

I’m going to get some really interesting spam.

Which will entertain me all afternoon when I should be writing.
