I wear a lot of different hats...

That's the great thing about the internet, you can be anybody you want to be. I'm seldom Jan, I'm often Milly or Nana Sugar Someday or The M&M's Mom, but mostly I'm Daisy Joy. I even have a gmail account - I couldn't get just "daisyjoy" so apparently I'm not the only one...

And why Daisy Joy? Doesn't it have a happy sound to it, wouldn't I love, love, love to have a little granddaughter named Daisy, which I will never have because nobody likes the name but me. I was going to name my Maggie Moo, Daisy, but met with such family opposition that I had to give up on it. *sigh*

Okay, let me tell you about Daisy Joy. She was a real person. She was the sweetest old lady, who was a friend of my Mothers. I loved to visit her, she was in her 70's when I was a teenager, and she had a yard full of flowers, and she was interesting, and funny, and just the dearest soul.

I heard from her Granddaughter, Lana, just recently, it was a nice trip down memory lane. And so I've taken her identiy, online that is, I think she would smile to know that I am using her name.

Daisy Joy, she was quite the "dish", I wish I had a picture of her to share with all of you...

My girlfriend sent me these 21 words of wisdom, and that they are, girlfriends... we could ALL benefit from these...

ONE. Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully.

TWO. Marry a man/woman you love to talk to. As you get older, their conversational skills will be as important as any other.

THREE. Don't believe all you hear, spend all you have or sleep all you want.

FOUR. When you say, "I love you," mean it.

FIVE. When you say, "I'm sorry," look the person in the eye.

SIX. Be engaged at least six months before you get married.

SEVEN. Believe in love at first sight.

EIGHT. Never laugh at anyone's dreams. People who don't have dreams don't have much.

NINE. Love deeply and passionately. You might get hurt but it's the only way to live life completely.

TEN.. In disagreements, fight fairly. No name calling.

ELEVEN. Don't judge people by their relatives.

TWELVE. Talk slowly but think quickly.

THIRTEEN! .. When someone asks you a question you don't want to answer, smile and ask, "Why do you want to know?"

FOURTEEN. Remember that great love and great achievements involve great risk.

FIFTEEN. Say "bless you" when you hear someone sneeze.

SIXTEEN. When you lose, don't lose the lesson.

SEVENTEEN. Remember the three R's: Respect for self; Respect for others; and Responsibility for all your actions.

EIGHTEEN. Don't let a little dispute injure a great friendship.

NINETEEN. When you realize you've made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.

TWENTY. Smile when picking up the phone. The caller will hear it in your voice.

TWENTY- ONE. Spend some time alone

This really frosts my cake...

Why can't fast food restaurants EVER introduce anything that is low calorie, EVER... Trisher was telling me last week how good the iced coffee's are at McDonald's. That sounded pretty good to me, so I went to DWLZ and looked up the points for these bad boys, bad boys for real. Mickey D's is using REAL sugared flavorings in these things, and they tally up to as much as 4.5 Weight Watcher points apiece.

I tried to get the Nutritional info from McDonalds, with no luck, but good old Hungry Girl had it - here's the breakdown, read it and weep -

The Iced Cream Coffee has 220 calories/11g fat for the 32 oz. and 160 calories/8g fat for the 24 oz., the Iced Hazelnut Cream Coffee has 200 calories/11g fat for the 32 oz. and 150 calories/8g fat for the 24 oz., and finally, the Iced Vanilla Cream Coffee has 220 calories/11g fat for the 32 oz. and 180 calories/8g fat for the 24 oz.

They could just have easily made these with Splenda and cut way down on the calories, but oh no, they have to give their already obese customers the full fat versions. so they can suck down even more calories....Just absolutely toasts my Rice Krispies.......

On a more positive note....

I tried out a Neutrogena At Home Microdebrasion System yesterday, don't even ask why, it's a really long story, but ya know what, it was really pretty great... Now there is nothing that is going to make this old skin look young again, but it did take away the dullness, the dryness, and left my skin soft and dewy. Would I recommend this??? You betcha I would, in a New Yawk minute...

You have this battery powered applicator with a foam tip and you just dip the foam into the sand like crystals, and dot your cheeks, forehead and chin, then you gently rub your face with it. It's pretty gritty, but you don't apply pressure, and it didn't irritate my skin at all.

You are supposed to do this for five evenings, then quit for a week for you skin to adjust. Adjust do what?? I don't quite get that part, but anyway, after that you just use it 3 evenings a week. Sounds pretty easy, doesn't it?

The reviews for this on Amazon were pretty good. Just don't expect it to make you look young again, just fresher....

It's a good thing, not a miracle worker but defnitely a good thing...

Oh my.....

Remember back to when we were in high school, and just the word "Senior" was SOOOO cool... Whatever were we thinking??? Now that I'm "ALMOST" a Senior Citizen, well, I am at the movies already, you are a Senior Citizen at 55 at the movies, it's not exciting at all. In fact, it's depressing. I don't even like that word, "Senior" - and "Senior Citizen," OMG, just the sound of it grates on my nerves... Are we doomed to "Senior Citizen" specials in the restaurants. Somehow "Early Bird" specials sounds so much better than "Senior Citizen" specials.

I'm even past the "55 and Alive" club age. Jeez Louise, I don't even know where I'm headed with this blog, or WHY, I'm just babbling, so just ignore me, in fact, ignore this whole post... And I was in such a good mood, too, until I started this silly nonsense...

I just don't believe this....

This old girl has seen a lot in her lifetime, but NEVER have I seen anything like Aretha Franklin's tata's, displayed like this at the VMA's. Whatever was this woman thinking? This is worse than obscene, it's totally nausating. And what's with the itty bitty spaghetti straps holding up these bad girls??? OMG, I hope there was a wire threaded thru that fabric. Can you imagine if a strap broke? Oh, this is so bad, I have never in my wildest dreams seen anything so BAD!!!! Is she in total denial that she's OLD and FAT and that her boobs look like the WATERMELONS FROM HELL????

This totally overshadows (no pun intended) Brit-Brit's horrid lip synching, awkward, out of step opening act. What's the world coming to????
