Pebbles in Lingerie With a Bee in Her Bonnet

Wait.  Pebbles doesn't have a bonnet.  She has a bone.  I'll get to that in a moment.

I'm watching a scene on a TV show where the sexy blond walks out of the bathroom in silky lingerie and high heels.  I asked Hubby if this is what he thinks I should be wearing when I come out of the bathroom at night instead of the old T-shirt, shorts, face mask, Bengay cream, and curlers?

Oh.  That explains a few things.

I might be able to get the lingerie on, padding the top quite a bit, but the heels?  Um, no.  Evil Twin would trip me.  Hubby would be trying to explain to the nice man with the badge and gun that I accidentally impaled myself with our framed wedding photo that was knocked off the wall when I fell.


Let's move on.

I'm doing a triathlon tomorrow.  It has a caveman theme.  I made a costume out of what's left of my Pebbles costume:

Yes, that's really my hair with a "bone" in it.

With the warm spring we're having down here, I'm a bit worried about how hot I'm going to be in that thing!

Event photos may or may not come later.  I'll have to stick the bone in my visor or hat because there is no way I'll be able to get it to stay in my wet hair after swimming and cycling!

Maybe I should borrow BamBam's club.  Knocking my competitors out of the way may be the only way I won't finish last!

Kidding.  Kidding.  I'm not *Tonya Harding.

I've got some nice blooms in the garden this spring.  Evil Twin provides captions:

Wow!  Check out that splatter pattern.

You're not hiding from ME, are you, Pinky?  
I won't cut on you.  Promise.

I'm trying to catch a bee to put in Reffie's for her race tomorrow. 

Have a great week!

*Just in case you don't remember or you are too young, Tonya had fellow ice-skater Nancy Kerrigan clubbed in the knee prior to the US Championships in 1994.

Good luck with the marathon!

I even remember the Tonya Harding parody that Seinfeld did. Harding is one psycho bitch, which reminds me. Don't let Evil Twin get a hold of the bone.

Gorgeous pictures!

So, I'm dying to know, what did hubby say in response to your question? Is there a correct answer here? No, I like you unattractive. Yes, I like you to look like a high-priced hooker.

And what were you watching, anyway? Was this on late-night cable? A Charlie Sheen meets the porn stars special?

Hee hee hee.

I find myself liking that Evil Twin more and more.

hee hee

And I LURVE the bone in the hair! You have got to find someway to make that work the WHOLE triathy!

And good luck! Although you don't need it.

You've got good triathy genes!

Maybe you should come out of the bathroom at night wearing that Pebbles outfit? Okay, maybe not.

Good luck and have fun in the triathalon!

ReformingGeek said...

@Lauren - Thanks. Yeah. Tonya is a nutter.

@FishHawk - Thanks!

@Mike - What did Hubby say? He didn't even hear me ask the question. :) I don't even remember the show. Maybe that's a good thing.

@Quirky - I always knew you liked her best. As for the bone, tough luck. I didn't even remember to put on my visor! Maybe I'll just wear the bone around town. :)

@00dozo - Thanks. Yeah, Hubby likes the Pebbles outfit but I'm still not wearing heels!

Evil twin cut your face out of the photo in case you hadn't noticed.

Hope you Bam! Bam! Bammed your way across the finishing line!

Flowers? Sure. Rub it in. My tulips are just starting to peek out of the ground. There are crocuses here and there....and that's it. Still have a pile of snow in the shade in the back yard. I'll be happy to ship it to you, but to be fair, I must warn you there are probably some frozen NutJob presents buried in there.

So did you need the club?

Did Evil Twin just use it for fun?

And lastly,

Why did we ever stop wearing bones in our hair?

Anything Fits A Naked Man said...

How did you do? I bet you were BRILLIANT, both in time and COSTUME choice!! Please, PLEASE post pics! Also, your flowers are GORGEOUS!! Well done!!

Ivy said...

So how did you do? If I ever did a marathon, I would totally costume it up. I really have to think about what I would do, but there would definitely be a cape involved.

ReformingGeek said...

@dana - Evil Twin is funny like that.

@Deb - I'm sure you are referring to chocolate chips in that snow, right?

@MrsBlogalot - I think the bones kept splintering and hurting people. HUm....

Fortunately, Evil Twin did not have to club anyone out of the way!

@Joan - I had a fun race, felt good and worked hard in each event. As for times, I'm really not very fast, except for the run and that's all relative!

@Ivy - No capes. You'll trip or get sucked into an engine or something. :)

I also love the bone. (Have at it, evil twin -- that's an easy set-up for a joke.) ((You're welcome.)) ((Yes, I KNOW you didn't thank me because you are EEEEEE-VIL. I was being sarcastic.)))

Good luck, Reffie.

I've never heard of a caveman run but I'm sure it's very fun

First of all, I love the fact that you are doing a themed triathlon. I'm thinking about doing one in September, without the theme of course.

Second, I AM old enough to remember Tonya Harding and I found that comment hilarious. I felt quite aged the other day when I watched the TV Land awards and the casts from Facts of Life, Family Ties, Welcome Back Cotter and more made an appearance. But that was when TV was good.

Third, those blooms are simply gorgeous! It's still snowing here in Chicago, so the flowers are struggling to come up. Uugh.

It's good to "see" you. I miss this so much.
