We were talking about embarrassing our kids this morning..
Everyone had a story…Anna talked about getting her young son a “cup” for
Sports…Karmel embarrassed her son …on the Sam and Lissa show a few years ago when she won Jewell tickets and said she was going to give them to her son who was on leave from Afghanistan. Said it on the air so all sorts of people called him to tease him that he liked Jewell which he didn’t. We had the Dad who roller skating with his daughter made her fall and she demanded to go home…Apparently there was a boy she was trying to impress….and Tonya said when her son who is now a cop was 13. …she made him come home from a sleepover when she found out the parents weren’t home. He wouldn’t leave so she picked him up…screaming and kicking!!
But what started it all was this Mom in New York who recently went to her little sons school assembly, got on stage during the musical portion and proceeded to strip down to her “boobies”… Don’t know what that was all about but they did end up charging her with 7 counts of endangering the welfare of a child..and one count of public lewdness.
Who doesn’t need a little help at keeping things “nice” at work!!!
Here are the five phrases Forbes Magazine says to avoid, because they either make you seem unprofessional or like you don’t care.
No problem. It implies that what you did really isn’t that big a deal…and that the person you’re talking to didn’t even need to thank you. So next time when someone says thank you…say you’re welcome!!
It’s Not Fair
That’s Not My Job
“You Guys” (better to use the word “everyone”
After reading all of these…all I can say is “whatever”….
If you missed the Daily Dish this morning at 8:10..this was my favorite.
When asked what it was like giving birth Pink said “I felt like I was being scooped out like a pumpkin and hit by a train—all at the same time”
Here they are…the regrets for people over 50.
And we mentioned them this morning so that the under 50 crowd could head them off…LOL
#1.) 91% wish they'd traveled more.
#2.) 72% regret their career choice. (--People could choose more than one thing.)
#3.) 64% would like to take back some bad relationship choices.
#4.) 55% wish they'd taken better care of their bodies.
#5.) 53% are sorry they lost touch with friends.
#6.) 46% wish they'd been more careful with their money.
#7.) 27% regret having children too early.
#8.) 25% think they worried about things too much.
#9.) 19% wish they'd been more of a "yes" person.
#10.) 8% regret having children too late.
And now the regret those under 50 already may have….actually closer to under 30
1 in 4 have “intimate photos or videos” on their phone or tablet.
Funny for some reason..people feel safe storing naked stuff on their phones…but don’t feel safe using their phone to check their bank balance.
The silly stuff you can learn from Sam and Lissa.
Supposedly most elevators have a secret trick to skip all the other floors…even if some little kid has pressed all of the buttons so that you can go straight to your floor.
It’s actually pretty simple…if it really does work. You press and hold your floors button at the same time and the door close button…need to do it for about 7 to 10 seconds.
We only have a 2 floor elevator here at KBAY so I can’t test it out…but if you’ve got a much longer elevator ride…maybe you can.
I’m dying to know if it works…
Do you get a lot of chain e-mails from friends?. I never ever follow the directions and send them on but I do glance at them. And I love the one today from my BFF Janette:
Subject: To a Great Friend
There comes a point in your life when you realize:
Who never did,
Who won't anymore...
And who always will.
So, don't worry about people from your past,
There's a reason why they didn't make it to your future.
Let’s see how right this is for Sunday night.
Movie industry pundits say Argo will win for best picture.
Steven Spielberg for Best Director
Daniel Day-Lewis for Best Actor
Jennifer Lawrence for Best Actress
Tommie Lee Jones for Best Supporting Actor (But will he smile)
Anne Hathaway for Best Supporting Actress (already dreading her acceptance speech)
And what do you think about this?
The International Movie Data Base has named the favorite all time films, based on the votes of people who use their site.
I think you’ll be surprised!!
1. The Shawshank Redemption, followed by the Godfather, The Godfather Part II,
Pulp Fiction, The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly, 12 Angry Men, The Dark Knight, Schindlers List, The Lord of the Rings:Return of the King and Fight Club.
What we learned about women today!!!
The number one person we consult before making a hard decision is our Mom?
Doesn’t say who when our Mom is gone like mine.
How many things are in a typical purse? 40.
If a woman clips coupons (like I do) and gets a million dollars she will still clip coupons. 9 out of ten women say they do it not because they need to but because they want to !!!!
And what I did repeat many times this morning (and it did silence Sam LOL)
Women really do talk more than men. And we cant help it. It’s biological. We have much more of a language protein in our brains that helps us produce speech….We say 20 thousand words a day on average..while a guy says just 7 thousand. And I thank you guys for not coming back with a bunch of silly one-liners. Your language protein levels must be lower than usual today!!! http://www.facebook.com/SamVanZandtKBAY

You know how I love reality TV…
Most shows that is. I cant get into the Bachelor or Bachelorette….and no matter how hard I try but last night after getting home from a weekend in LA..I watched 2 hours of Kourtney and Kim in Miami and one hour of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Adrienne Maloof by the way has asked to quit and they say Taylor Armstrong might be fired.
If you cant get into reality TV…maybe this is why.
5 depressing realities about reality shows.
1. The people on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition cant afford to keep their new homes.
2. Oprah makes people pay for their free stuff. It’s called taxes
3. Almost every restaurant on “Kitchen Nightmares” goes out of business.
4.”Storage Wars” capitalizes on people’s misfortunes (didn’t one of the stars recently commit suicide)…and is probably staged.
5. Contestants on Biggest Loser gain their weight back.
Is there a number 6? (for you at least) http://www.facebook.com/SamVanZandtKBAY
One of the many injustices…
Read this morning men tend to wrinkle about ten years later than women partly because their skin is thicker and oilers and partly because the scraping of the razor during a daily shave promotes rejuvenation of the skins lower layers..
And while I hope you never need to use this information.
If you’re ever stranded without food or water…..
A person with 24 pounds of fat can last up to 60 days without food.
The heavier you are the longer you’ll last. The skinner you are, the faster you’ll die.
Plus the average person can survive only a week without water..
No go have a great weekend!!!
Eat a lot…and drink a lot..LOL!!!
Oh..and buy lots of Girl Scout cookies…..the girls should be just about everywhere or at least outside the grocery store , bank and pharmacy.
The online cookie locator is iLoveCookies.org
Theres even a facebook page….facebook.com/gsnorcal
A few things about Valentines Day and I do admit I for some reason just love this holiday. But a funny thing about Valentines day…only about 60 percent celebrate, so just about every other holiday except for St Patricks Day is more popular.
I think this holiday just makes people act silly and whimsical…..and I like that…
I’m not alone….we spend almost 19 billion dollars on this holiday.. or about $130 per person on things like candy,cards, gifts and “more.

Talked about bucket lists this morning…
Karen called…said she just did one of hers…travel to see Yosemite in the snow. Next, she wants to see it in the spring…
When isn’t a perfect time to see Yosemite? Every season is great…
But what about you?
Here is the list of ten most common bucket list items.
Become a millionaire…which is more like a wish than something you can actually do…unless of course you’re Mark Zuckerberg.
Travel the World
See the Northern Lights
Walk the Great Wall of China (hey, I have)
Completely pay off your mortgage (Sam has)
Go on the Inca Trail in Peru
See the Seven Wonders of the World ( which would include the Northern Lights, The Great Wall and the Pyramids)
Visit the Pyramids in Egypt
Invent something that changes lives
Also listed …African Safari, learning an instrument, building a house, writing a novel, gambling in Vegas (done that too) being an extra in a movie and running a marathon.
Yesterday there was the story of the young bride. She met her husband on Valentines Day two years ago…He needs a kidney…and she giving him hers. She told him he already had her heart!!!
And now the story from a 68-year-old woman in Houston, Texas named Sue Johnston.
--She was married to her husband John for 46 years, and every Valentine's Day, he'd send her a bouquet of flowers. After 46 years together, he died.
--But the next Valentine's Day, Sue STILL got a bouquet from John. It made her angry and upset, so she called the florist to tell them about the mistake. But they told her, quote, "Before he passed away, your husband prepaid for many years."
--He asked them to keep sending her bouquets every Valentine's Day. And when Sue looked at the card on the flowers, it said, quote, "My love for you is eternal."
Didn’t get to talk about this today…but we should have…
It still makes me furious…
You know Melissa McCarthy…star of Mike and Mollie …and she was in Bridesmaids and also had a bit part in So This is 40? She is now in the new movie Identity Thief with Jason Bateman. Yes she’s overweight…but so so so funny. And seems as sweet as can be. Movie critic Rex Reed (didn’t even know he was still around) this weekend spent a lot of time talking about her weight, calling her “tractor-sized”, a “female hippo” and a “humongous creep”
In comes Eric Stonestreet of Modern Family. Sam says he’s also in the movie.
Stonestreet tweeted “ Turns out Rex Reed didn’t die sad and alone ten years ago”
Thank you Eric!!!!
How dare Reed!!!!
Although I guess Melissa got the last laugh as despite mixed reviews..Sam didn’t like Identity Thief…the movie made 36 million dollars…
Still doesn’t take away the hurtful words….
I always wonder when people are so nasty about weight…what makes them do it…
Like Melissa doesn’t know she’s overweight. In fact I read last month she was trying to lose weight but CBS was against it because of her successful comedy.
I guess this is the weekend for Valentines Day gift shopping?
I’m done..thank you!!
But places for you to go…pet store…1 in 2 with pets buy them a gift.
2 out of ten buy candy…Sees is open 7 days a week..LOL!!
2 out of ten buy flowers….You can do that on the phone.
14% buy jewelry…I think Macys and Kohls are having sales..
And 35 % buy a card…which actually may be the best gift of them all. 2 out of 3 who get Valentines Day cards say they read them and they love them. But I guess the flip side is 1 out of 3 don’t read them and aren’t thankful……sad face!!!
Oh…and don’t forget the dinner reservation.
Valentines Day is a Thursday….which the restaurants love..because not only will they be packed Thursday…but Friday and Saturday as well ( for all those people who couldn’t get in on Thursday)
This one just doesn’t seem right. …tell me what you think.
In Massachusetts this week, Paul Baier made a deal with his 14 year old daughter Rachel. If she quit Facebook completely until the end of June, he’d pay her $200.
She gets the first 50 in mid-April and the other 150 on June 26th..
They even signed a contract. Oh, this whole thing was her idea…said she wanted money for “stuff” but didn’t know how to earn it, plus she admits Facebook is a distraction. Although once the five months are up….she does plan to go back on Facebook.
This is such a great story…
I need to tell it again.
Maybe you were out of the room when we were talking about it this morning…
Over the weekend, a couple from Arkansas, Stuttgart, Arkansas went on a fishing trip. On their way to the lake, they stopped at a convenience store and the hubby bought a stratch off lottery ticket. He won 1 million dollars!
Somehow they went fishing anyway…how I don’t know.
On their way home, they stopped at the same convenience store as wifey wanted to also buy a stratchers ticket. She won $50 thousand dollars.
Yes..now that I’m in love..I care all of a sudden..LOL!!!
The bottom line is 1 in 8 women will say they don’t care…but it is so far from the truth!!!
Actually, I look back when Mike was alive, we always left cards for each other but Valentines Day was more about the girls…and even now…Victoria is 28…Christina 23…I still
Make a big deal about Valentines Day….getting them gifts…and now that Tori is getting married and Christina has a boyfriend I mail them restaurant gift cards as well so they can go out to dinner.
Heard some cute things about the Puppy Bowl Maybe we should have watched that yesterday…We wouldn’t feel so sad today!!!
At least it wasn’t the kitty bowl!!
I cant believe what the experts have been saying of late…about kitty cats..
Last week, there was the study that cats are the serial killers of the animal world..and kill billions of other animals every year…Today they’re saying the average cat sleeps for 16 hours a day…which means they spend two thirds of their lives sleeping…
So I guess most of the time, cats are either sleeping or murdering….LOL!!!
Shared some of these today..and still chuckling ….Signs you’re at a bad Super Bowl Party and its time to leave..
--At halftime a huge fight breaks out . . . over whether or not Beyoncé was lip-synching.
--A guy in a Ray Lewis jersey stabs someone with the pâté spreader.
--Nobody really cares about the 49ers .
--They have the TV on mute, and "Barry Manilow's Greatest Hits" on repeat. (Wait a second, I want to be at that party!!!)
--In honor of Beyoncé, everyone in attendance pre-recorded their dialogue.
--The game is wide open. Just like the sores on the hands of the guy digging through the spinach dip.
--For some reason, no one's talking about the steady stream of blood leaking from the microwave.
--The chili is vegetarian, the beer is non-alcoholic, and the conversation is about gluten.
--With the game tied in the fourth quarter, the host grabs the remote and declares, "This is boring. Let's see what's happening on the Kardashians!" (okay, another party to stay at!!!)
--Everyone's too busy live Tweeting the game to interact with each other.
--No one there is watching the game . . . because they're too busy posting pictures of the guacamole dip on Facebook.
--Five of the seven layers in the dip are the same.
