How Rude! The Ugly Dress, and Old Spice

First of all, what kind of dog owner enters her dog in a dog contest in the local paper and forgets to vote for her? Oh yes, me.

This means that my sweet little doggie's picture was included on the page amongst scores of other dogs' pics with this caption under it:

"Zoe. 0 votes."

ZERO votes?! OH, the humiliation! No one voted for her, not even me! But don't worry too much about her feelings because when I came home that day, she had "poo'd" in the laundry room. I got your message, Zoe. In the words of Stephanie Tanner: "How rude!"

Do you remember back in June when I posted that I would have to wear this dress to She Speaks for unmentionable reasons, which I then proceeded to mention all over my blog?

Well, I just wanted to update you. So far, in July, August, and September?

I could be wearing this.


Not only because it's white, signifying the opposite of the red message above, (wink-wink) but also because the neck, or "body," if you will, is fire engine red, signifying, "hot flashes."

That's right, after a month-long visit from "Aunt Rhody," (?) she packed up, moved out and has not been heard from since. And no, I am not pregnant.

Also, I just needed to post the dress because it may be the ugliest one in the world, and I would like the honor of having the ugliest dress in the world on my blog. Crystal Carrington would kill for this dress. Or at least push Alexis into the pool for it.

Finally, have you seen these Old Spice commercials? We have played this over and over just to hear the little scream.

ok, how funny is that commercial? It reminds me of my Grandfather...he used the original Old Spice!
I would love to see Crystal pushing Alexis in a pool again...for the millionth time :)
Have a great day!

My dog was in a contest and came in #12 out of 600 dogs! YES, I voted and nagged the heck out of all my friends to do so too. But I guess Zoe got her point across now didn't she? LOL!

Looks like you might be SWAGGERing a little now that your "aunt" is gone. ha!

Marina said...

I still remember that smell of Old Spice!

You random posts crack me up.

Poor Zoe. I'm sure you'll need to take her to counseling.

Welcome to the world of "power surges"! Fortuntely, they do pass and do not last forever. My husband loved it when I wanted the house freezing (until he got the electric bill).
Just the smell or mention of Old Spice takes me back to high school and the fears and stuff... my husband came home with some a few years ago... I gaged when he came out wearing it. I begged him to throw it away.

Zoe probably would have pooped whether you voted for her or not. Roxy Belle always has her little "accidents" when I've been home all day and we've had a great time. Then, there she goes ... actually, it's usually not poo, but vomit.

What a wonderful comment this is. I have never included poo and vomit in any comment.

And, how are you feeling about that "Aunt Rhody"? That's a different name for it. Never heard that one. I've always heard "Aunt Flo."

Susanne said...

Poor Zoe! She got you back didn't she? But what about votes from hubby and son and daughters? I think she owes them a little payback too! :vD

OOO, football shoulder dresses. I finally got rid of the last of mine, though I never owned a white one like either of those. Something tells me I'm not too excited to get to this menopause thing.

Smilingsal said...

I've worn both of those dresses, and let me tell you that once it cools off, life is pretty nice.

samurai said...

I can't believe you failed to vote for your OWN dog! LOL

Chris said...

Okay... I just tip toed over here from bugs in my teeth and saw your blog for the first time. WOW! You have a picture of my dog!! and HER name is Zoe. That is too weird:)

Laurie Ann said...

Poor Zoe! Bless her heart. That was probably a revenge poo, LOL. The commercial cracked me up!

Kim said...

I have had "one of those days".... but not anymore! Thanks for the smiles!!!

Life In Progress said...

You FORGOT to vote for your dog!! Bless your heart. And thanks for the laugh.

Michelle@Life with Three said...

Oh, poor little Zoe! She's obviously taking it very hard. ;-)

And -- is that commercial for real?!? It cracks me up!

Misty said...

oh, that scream.... i have been giggling every time i hear it in my head!

DidiLyn said...

Think of all the votes poor Zoe would have had if you had
1)Told all of us about the voting.
and
2) Remembered, for the love of all that is good, to vote for the little sweetie yourself.

Let's be real. It's a good day when we remember to feed the little canines, let alone put them in a contest. :-)

Poor Zoe... I would have voted for her! That dress is pretty ugly! Oh, it reminds me of a text message picture I received recently from my friend who was making fun of an outfit I wore at a Wedding Shower 8 years ago... the text said, "Help, sister Angie needs the fashion police". I am pretty sure I won the contest for the ugliest dress and I can't live it down! :)
I think I have recovered, not exactly sure!
Hope your day is going well!
Love,
Angie xoxo

Hi Linda~

Thanks for visiting my blog. I enjoyed reading yours, too. And for what it's worth, I think your Zoe is the cutest (and agree that your dress is ... well... not the cutest in the world!)

Have a great weekend...
Jennifer

Liddie:
A reference to FULL HOUSE and no cameos of JESSE!? WHATSUP with that?! just kiddin'
my daughter still loves that show!

I would have voted for her if I'd known...
she's the most adorable doggie around...

have a great weekend...hope #1 son gets to come home and make you laff! : )

Chris said...

the picture that you commented on is actually Schatzi, Zoe's most recent baby girl. She has had twelve babies. I have two of them and my sister has three:) There is a shot of her with my daughter on my slide show from one of my first blogs... check it out. It's CRAZY. They could be twins!!

thouartloosed said...

HAHAHAHA okay, the funniest thing is that you didn't vote for your own sweet Zoe. That plus you can wear fab-u-lus white dresses for months at a time =s getting to be an old girl. I don't know what it means that my hubby wears old spice. (Maybe coolj isn't as cool as he thinks?).

Marina said...

thank you Linda, for coming by you are a blessing love, marina

Rae said...

Hi! I am still chuckling over this post! So nice to meet you!! I must say your little Zoe is adorable!

Dena @ Green Acres said...

How could you think all that bling combined with giant shoulder pads is ugly???

Hot flashes are the one and only reason I'm actually looking forward to cooler weather.

PJ said...

That Aunt Rhody is something else! My Aunt left for a couple of months, came back with a vengeance and then beat it out of town when Chemo happened. She's rude like that! Guess she was on her way out anyway. But she certainly does leave a trail of fire and sweat in her path!! Chin up, they say it only lasts from 1 to 10 years!!! Yeah!

Beverlydru said...

Oh, my sister. You have relieved my fears and made me feel "normal" - ha! I think we could get a code on our blogs posting pictures of dresses to communicate peri-menopause symptoms and compare our journey via fashion code. Thanks for keeping me laughing.
