Mary Carmen

Recovering academic librarian, SAHM, knitter, yarn snob, & walking addict. My world is being overtaken by toys that make noise.
I can't stop watching that 11 year old gal, Taylor Hatala, dancing to Anaconda. She is mesmerizing.
If FF were high school, who would you take to the prom?
Love this question ... Would totally get myself in trouble with my answer :-) - Shannon - GlassMistress
I would probably be in the band. But, if not, I would probably be one of the guys lined up asking joey or LB (almost certainly unsuccessfully). - Glen Campbell
Maybe Helen. Or Melly. - Glen Campbell
Or Jenny H. She's hot. - Glen Campbell
Ok, just being honest, I'd be eternally grateful if one of the girls merely glanced in my direction. - Glen Campbell
Hm, Jandy and I went to the same college. And we were both English Lit majors. - Glen Campbell
Zulema. Definitely Zulema. Maybe. - Glen Campbell
I'm too cool for a prom. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
I would go with a bunch of FF girls - T-ra, Tamara J, MC, Colleen, Jill, Holly, Jenn D, Tinypants, Starmama, Katy S, Spidra, Zulema, Shannon, Melly, and Jenny would definitely need to be in that group - and whisper with them about which boys we really like. (ETA: I keep adding names) - Corinne L
I'm sneaking in the booze. - SAM
Ummm...I'd stand bashfully against the wall - Sir Shuping is just sir
B!! - Janet
Ok, if this were really high school, I wouldn't actually have a date. Or be at the prom. But, hey, a guy can dream, can't he? - Glen Campbell
Oh, do I get to wear my tux with tails and cummerbund matching Chuck Taylors again? (Yes, I'm dodging the original question.) - (Curtis) Alan Jackson
Corinne - We will all girl-dance together! - Katy S
I don't do proms - Kevin Johnson
Exactly, Katy! Cue the 80s music and bad 80s dance moves - I am READY! *looks for AquaNet and a fluffy taffeta dress* - Corinne L
I might need a bubble skirt with a hoop in it to keep it floofy. - Katy S
MOTO....Cause I know he knows how to party on the dance floor! - Hedgehog from Android
Hedgie wins! #rumpshaker - LB: Water Witch from Android
Never went to a prom. - Friar Will
You, of course. - Holly's favorite Anna
I will arm wrestle Hedgie for a prom date with B!!! - Janet from FFHound!
I would want entirely too many of y'all to be my date. - LB: Water Witch from Android
I first read that as 'take to pr0n' and was like 0_0. - Ken Gidley
Short list: either Zulema, Jennifer Dittrich, Tamara, Val, or Kristin. Whichever would want to go with an old bunneh. - Vampire Hunter DYSP
I think Lisa would be a fun prom date. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
I have to pick just one??! - Melly - #TeamMarina
I'd do the same thing I did in high school: skip prom, and go to King's Dominion (or, maybe I'd change things up and go to Hershey Park) with my best friend(s), instead. Who's coming with me? - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
who would i be taking? you mean who would be on the long list of girls (since we're talking high school here) telling me to get lost? i think it'd be short only cos i'd give up after the third attempt. i'd be the mopey long-haired dude in black hanging out next to one of the PA columns at the dance. - Big Joe Silence
Sir Shuping. - Melly - #TeamMarina
Joe Silence. - Melly - #TeamMarina
The Friar (is that allowed?) - Melly - #TeamMarina
Melly and t-ra would be among them, that's for certain. others as well, but i.. i... *stammers, then runs away backstage to read the manual for the mixing console for comfort* - Big Joe Silence
Not Eric, because he'd be at Sammy Hagar's B'day Bash without me. - Melly - #TeamMarina
The Bird Whisperer. - Melly - #TeamMarina
If Helen says no to Glen, then him. - Melly - #TeamMarina
I could be here all day. - Melly - #TeamMarina
I go with who I went with last time. - Eric - It's My Thing from iPhone
*saves a dance with Melly* - Vampire Hunter DYSP
Yes, Melly, it is allowed. If only you had been in my high school. :^) - Friar Will
Stag. I'd go stag. It's for the best, really ;) - Brent Schaus
At my school, !984 is known as "The Year Without a Prom" because nobody wanted to go. We don't do proms. :P That was the year they started doing the Senior Cruise, because it was easier to drag us all on a ship and take us out to sea for the night, after graduation, than it was to get us to buy a prom ticket. - April Russo
Y'all make me blush!! - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
I would ask Shevonne to join the girl's party with me. I'm surprisingly shy when it comes to asking men out sadly. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
Amanda. She's my home girl for always and eternity. But I'll dance with EVERYONE. I love dancing. :D - Jenny H. from Android
^I'm on FF... - Eivind
Hush, boy. SOOKEH'S MAAAAAHN. Er, I mean. JENNEH'S MAAAAAHN. :D - Hookuh Tinypants
:DDD - Jenny H.
Johnny, but he's wearing the dress. - Mo Kargas
Megan I think. She'd probably be singing with the band and I'd have lots of cred but then I'd spend most of my time spiking the punch with Scott and I'd try and look up Johnny's dress and there'd be a scene and I'd get in trouble. - MoTO: Team Marina
I'd definitely be in Corinne's Grrrl Crew and attempt to shimmy my way across the dance floor to have at least one dance with everyone I wanted to based on which song was playing. Depending on how much spike B and Scott managed to get into the punch, I'd probably try to steal more than a few kisses before the end of the night. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
I just want an invite to the after party. - ♫Robot Chicken, Trainer♫
KeshaB623 of course. Happy Wife. Happy life. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
Johnny's no stranger to donning frocks. - Melly - #TeamMarina
I'm in Corinne's girl gang and we're gonna take a bunch of ratchet pics. Then I'm going outside to smoke weed with whoever wants to have some. Then I go inside & dance with all the boys who came stag. Then I dance with the boys who have dates. Then I dance with their dates. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Don't kids go to Denny's and such after prom? I've never been but seen drunk fancy dressed kids at all nite joints plenty of times. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Starmama is an equal opportunity prom attendee. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
I didn't go to my senior prom (heart broken because the girl I wanted to go with was forbidden from going with me by her parents). I regret that to this day. My friends said they had a blast. I ended up going with her the summer after my Freshman year though. Took one of her friends as a favor to her but still got to dance with my girl so I was on cloud 9. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
Do you have to have a date to go to prom? I went solo to my senior formal - my date got in trouble and wasn't allowed to go (he later ended up in jail). - Melly - #TeamMarina
No, Melly. And you are definitely in the girl gang. Though if you keep sneaking off with boys we are going to talk about you. *stops to pose for ratchet pic with Starmama & t-ra* *whispers about boys by punch bowl* - Corinne L
Someone took my date, and no one asked me so ICE CREAM at my house :-) - Shannon - GlassMistress
me and Starmama apparently do prom the same way. of course. also, I'd be plotting how to get Shannon into a slow dance with her dream date. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
Colleen. I never went to my prom, actually. - Jed from iPhone
Penguin - she could teach me to dance followed by Anne, Jessie, Kelly, Andi, and Tamara as they are all confirmed fun. Oh and Jenny for nature brains and superwoman stories. - Steve C Team Marina
Can I be the DJ? - Vampire Hunter DYSP
You & Eric should both DJ! - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Dream date might hurt himself laughting ;-) - Shannon - GlassMistress
I'm not saying y'all should take advantage of Miss Babs insane destash prices for the Hues or the Toes 3-ply yarn.....but I'm also not saying you shouldn't. Y'all know how beautiful her colorways are....and at $5-$6.50 a skein, this is a steal.
I feel like I should ask for an Ello invite.
Give me your email & I'll send you one, doll! - Corinne L Thanks! - Mary Carmen from iPhone
I'm starting to think the same thing. LOL. I saw everyone posting about it on FB and FF last night. - Trish R
There's honestly very little happening there. - Stephen Mack
But, were people talking all about it on Google+? - Joe
Just sent your invite, MC. - Corinne L
Thank you!!!! - Mary Carmen
I don't think I like Ello.
they're still getting it together. this is early days, some features are still being built. - Big Joe Silence
Ello Govna! - Mo Kargas
Chimney sweep 'bot!? - Big Joe Silence
Does anyone want any sourdough starter? Just the cost of the priority shipping. I have the starter that is going to overtake Manteca.
You're the sourdough starter, starchy instigator? - Arlan K.
ha ha ha :P - Mary Carmen
Good morning!
Hello :) - Pete : Team Marina
Hi there! - Galadriel C.
You three are so beautiful I can't put it into words. Your smiles are helping me through a tough morning. Love you guys. - Stephen Mack
O HAI, NYCE PEOPLEZ. :) - Vampire Hunter DYSP
Good morning! - Mary B: #TeamMonique
Thanks y'all. As you can tell, I am the last person to get up in the morning in this family. - Mary Carmen
*waves* ... grinning over here - MoTO: Team Marina
Currently watching: Mariella in a diaper, shake her butt to Another One Bites the Dust.
The musical choice clearly indicates great parenting. - Katy S
100 degrees today. FML.
Welcome back to central valley heat. - Corinne L
56 degrees today. I had to go to Walmart in Emporia and buy a sweatshirt because I didn't pack well. It may hit 60, though, later, so there is that... - WebGoddess
My husband asks the important questions, "Why are all Grateful Dead songs like 19 minutes long?"
Because drum solos. - Stephen Mack
because that gives you the time to contemplate shooting yourself and then enough time to talk yourself out of it - royce
Because spinning - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
LSD and pot, lots of pot. - Janet
Nitrous - Big Joe Silence from Android
Pot was my guess, too. - LB: Water Witch from Android
also, helium. am i the only person to watch a Grateful Dead docu? - Big Joe Silence
^Never seen one. - LB: Water Witch from Android
Shrooms. Shorter trip than LSD but made every Dead concert a sight to behold. - Hookuh Tinypants
Let's show this prehistoric bitch how we do things downtown.
"Drink your water, boo. Don't eat cat food."--- Ah, the sounds of my family.
"My passion's puppetry." #creepycommercial
Right? That skeeves me out every time. - Jennifer Dittrich
If you can't park the car, you should not buy it or drive it.
Amen, sister! - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
I fear this is about to be me. :( I keep telling my husband that I have to parallel park every day. - Jaclyn aka spamgirl from Android
while waiting in line in the driveway at our kids' school this morning i saw a dumbass in her Yukon drive up the curb onto the sidewalk while talking on her phone, then throw her Starbucks at the minivan blocking her attempt to turn back onto the pavement. you read that right, she was knee-driving her Yukon in front of the school at 8am. some ppl just should'nt be allowed to operate large child-crushing machinery, period. - Big Joe Silence
But what about the special BWM parking school???? - DJF
I am gonna break my arm off patting myself on the back for how fucking fantastic my rye bread came out.
Everything must go in the mouth. Everything.
Omni per os - Stephen Mack
I hate the fact that when asked for three words to describe me as a person/friend, my immediate responses were all negative.
I've been tagged to do it, too. I'll need to dig deep. - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
1. Bad 2. Mama 3. Jama. You're welcome. - Corinne L
MC, creative, loyal, protective, generous, and thoughtful, come to mind when I think of you. - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!

Close enough to the same to not be noticeable. - Jennifer Dittrich

All the same for me. - Stephen Mack

I didn't realize there were different ways to pronounce any of them. - Michael W. May from FFHound(roid)!
They'll all sound the same coming out of my mouth. - Jenny H. from Android
All differently. - April Russo
In my head I do .. Not so sure about my mouth. - Shannon - GlassMistress
Head pats for everyone.
May I have another, please? - MoTO: Team Marina
*pat pat* - Mary Carmen
Does it come with a side of slap on the ass? - Steve C Team Marina
Steven. - MoTO: Team Marina
Thanks, MC. I needed that. - MoTO: Team Marina
I would pay good money to be able to go back to bed for the next 3 hours.
and they say money can buy happiness - Azemat
*offers to babysit for free so that you can go sleep* - Sir Shuping is just sir
Me too, MC. Meeeee tooooozzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz - vicster: full-bodied
My bread is "slap my ass and call me, Shirley" good!
Oh, how I love afternoon nap time.
Me too. I got mine in today as well. - Julian
Seriously. Once my boys stop napping, I'll need to sneak them in when they're at school. =) - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
I spent 30 minutes this afternoon listening to this toy say, "Peek a boo! I see you!" over and over and over and over and over and over. I get some sort of prize for not punting it out the back door, right?
yes, yes you do. my little brother used to have a furby and we got so tired of it that i stuck it in the kitchen cabinet. - Sir Shuping is just sir
This chiro is gonna have to work a serious miracle this morning.
Obama looks so old.
I was noticing that recently. I remember thinking that late in Clinton's presidency, too. - John (bird whisperer)
If I had to deal with the same clowns dealing the same BS every freaking day, I'd look around 90 myself. - Vampire Hunter DYSP from Android
I think that's just what happens to dudes at that age. Look at GWB. He was an exercise fiend and he pretty clearly did not give a shit about anything policy-wise and he still aged pretty hard while in office. - Andrew C (✔)
It's the massive stress of the presidency + natural aging process. - Corinne L
Back on the IBS meal plan.
Gah. I hope things settle down. Do you take anything for the cramps? - Pete : Team Marina
I take a lot of papaya. - Mary Carmen
And now Lauren Bacall.....what a week....and it's only Tuesday.
