Stuff

I haven't posted in a while because there has just been too much disorganized "stuff" going on my head. Please allow me to purge (like you have a choice - it's my blog)...

* If you've been reading the comments, you know that my sister sent me a picture that she would like me to post here. She says it is a wonderful picture of John and I... and she's half right. John looks fantastic with his big, burly self. I, on the other hand, do not. And I'm not sure why I am so very stuck in the land of the ridiculously vain, and cannot suck it up to post a picture in which I feel I look... really bad. But I am obviously having issues with the idea.

* John and I have decided that we would like to take a safari drive sometime. We would prefer not have an elephant sit on our car.

* If there is a disease that can be prevented by eating scrumptious local sweet corn, our family has no worries this week.

* I swear, in that picture, I look like I live in a tree and bake cookies for a living.

* This has been keeping me up at night. (I apologize for directing you to another host, but it is quite lengthy, and I did not want to re-post it here. Also, please note that Snopes's declaration of "false" refers to the fact that it was incorrectly attributed. However, the person to whom credit was given did pass the message at some point in time.)

* Next door, there lives a wonderful family, the matriarch of which is Carla. She is the only person for whom JJ will wriggle out of my arms and run, arms wide. Recently, he has taken to calling her "An LaLa" (Aunt Carla). Love it!

* I don't know whether to be flattered that my sister loves me so much that she cannot tell that this picture is incredibly unflattering, or worried about her eyesight.

* truTV's slogan claims that it is not "reality", but in fact, "actuality". Can someone please tell me the difference?

* My car is in the shop, and the dealership loaned me a Mercedes-Benz ML350. I don't want to give it back.

* Fine! Here's the picture:

Marly, my dear, I imagined that picture being so horrible. It's sweet, quitcher worryin'. That's pretty cool that John has your name on his arm.

Nice car! Holy cow, we're not even allowed on their lot, let alone able to drive their cars!

Shayna said...

Aww, that picture isn't bad at all. And you must be pretty special to have your name tattooed on someone's arm! ;)

FYI--the comment was removed because I misspelled a word! Go figure! It is a GREAT picture! And your name tattooed onto his arm just might be a bigger testimony of his commitment to you than his name on your marriage license!

Maria said...

That picture makes your boobs look GIGANTIC!

Hey lady where can I get some of those good cookies. Seriously you look great.

Kat's Credence said...

You are your own wrost enemy, that pic isn't bad at all! And you know, like the others, I saw your name on John's arm too and I think that's pretty sweet (b/c my John and I won't go that far for each other, lol.)

Marly said...

Sheesh! Thank you, but y'all are a bunch of liars! Except Maria, who made me spit out my coffee. And Maria, it's because my boobs ARE gigantic.

Now, scroll down a few posts to the pictures of JJ and me. Those are halfway decent pictures - and far more recent. So please, when you think of me, make those the pictures that pop into your mind.

And yeah, it is pretty cool to know that John purposefully put my name on his arm permanently. 'Cause really, what are the chances that he'll find another Marly? He does love me. And Marvin the Martian. And Michigan J. Frog. ;)

Aunt Becky said...

You don't look like you live in a tree, altho the thought intrigued me plenty. What would someone who DID live in a tree look like?

mysecondjournal said...

I don't see your problem with that photo AT ALL..it's not like you have a booger hanging out of your nose or something.. I think it's very cute!!

Yeah..and what Maria said..the knockers look fab..that blue is good on you too.

Aunt La La is SO sweet.

rmpurkey said...

Hey lady. What about those cookies. I will not comment on the whole boob thing. Wouldnt be appropriate.

Marly said...

Rather like an elf, Aunt Becky. Look at those ears!

You guys really are cracking me up though. Truly, I was not fishing for compliments. I was expecting more like the phone call I got this morning from my no-nonsense friend who told me that I should perhaps be wary of my sister's judgement from here on out. ;)

Casey said...

In the spirit of competitiveness, my friend, You Win. Your boobs have gotten much bigger than when we were young. Mine, alas, are much smaller!! I go to Victoria's Secret, and they LAUGH--telling me that JC Penney or Dillard's has a very nice training bra department...

KJae said...

Okay, so your hair looks better down. And the t-shirt isn't as flattering as something more fitted. But I'm not giving you the elfin' ears. Does that really make you feel better?

And if I had the knowledge that this would end up about big boobs, well.... let me tell ya', you do NOT have that big of boobs! This I know because of the boobs I heft around.

My job here is done. Until next time, of course.

Nikki said...

OK, once again I agree with kjae in the fact that your boobs are NOT that big because I also know because of the ones I lug around. Does anyone know that commercial where the woman says she refers to herself as "stacked?" That would be me.
I also want to know who this friend is that is urging you to reconsider my judgement. It is just fine thank you and if you look at all of the other posts, you will see that most agree with me! Now talk to me about my judgement dear sister!!!! :)
