Where's Waldo?

Or more importantly, where’s Mrs. Tuna. Last we heard our caped crusader was boozing it up in California with her BFF.None of you even noticed in the last post the first picture was of La Tuna Canyon Road, they rolled out the carpet for us. And grand adventures they had, they even had a surprise visit from the first live, in person, blogger Kernut the Blond. While I was seething in jealousy on Kernut’s trip to BlogHer she offered to make the 6 hour round trip drive for dinner with a view. I didn’t even hate her when she told me how the weight was pouring off since she gave up eating dairy. There is no life without cheese so fat I shall remain.


One of the major drawbacks I have is that I have a tendency to leave chargers willy nilly wherever I go. Crap, left both the laptop and phone charger. If this was the first time it had happened we’d all have a good laugh. This translated into only logging on in 5 minute increments to check my facebook and my blog stats while waiting for the return of my lifeline to the internet gods. It should be noted that apparently the term Vino Slut apparently has offended some followers and they have removed themselves from my sordid little blog.

Now I’m engrossed in becoming more smarter back at ASU with taking 5 classes for 16 credits. What is wrong with all of you, why didn’t you crawl through your monitors and bitch slap some sense into me? So please, please, please bear with me over the next few weeks while I get acclimated to not ever sleeping again. It was hard enough wading my way through condom wrappers and digging up immunization records from the stone ages.

It’s all documented in my number one viewed post of all time, New Adventures of the Naughty School Girl. Interestingly enough the Google key word searches that steered those little perverts there are naughty school girl, kill chicken, kill school girl. I’m scared, hold me. Maybe if I get laid off at the end of the month it will leave me PLENTY of time to study stupid zoning law, planning methods and basket weaving.

This week lets whip together a little something that’ll keep me at studying rather than slaving away in the kitchen especially since we are experiencing extreme heat warnings with temps approaching 120 degrees. Pantyhose is not my friend.

Mint Pesto with Pita
1 cup firmly packed fresh mint
½ cup golden raisins
½ ounce walnut halves
3 tablespoons cream cheese
1 tablespoon olive oil
4 medium pitas cut into pieces.

In food processor combine all ingredients except pita and blend until smooth. Serve with pita. And look now I have minty fresh breath too.


One of my followers Carol at Facing50withhumour is an amazing blogger who is getting ready to have a novel, Mini Skirts and Laughter Lines, published. Color me jealous. But she is having an online launch party on September 16th, all day, all night. Lots of chances to win fabulous prizes. She promised to enter those followers who sent her pictures of themselves in miniskirts in a drawing for a Kindle. Ignore the man hands and flailing arms, it’s my attempt to distract you from my muffin top. Pick me, pick me, pick me. I need a little cheering up.

Someone ELSE with a book?


Girl, we must get SEERIYUS about our lives.

Laoch of Chicago said...

Taking courses a ASU is a fine thing. Kudos to you.

Carol Wyer said...

You look fantastic in the photos and I shall be posting them on Monday for the first time and again on the 16th. Muffin top? Nah!
Hats off to you because I would never be able to sit in a classroom again and that comes from someone who use dto teach!
Mint pesto sounds yummy...maybe I'll get Hubby to make it after all I am far too busy.

Mamma has spoken said...

16 credit hours AND working too? You are either wonder woman or crazy. Maybe both.....

Mark said...

That's funny, I'm mostly staying around because you use words like "vino-slut". ha! m.

Sausage Fingers said...

Congrats....keep drinking the grape juice
it only gets better

Ami said...

Vino Slut? How... sophisticated! Do you also use words like Feces Roster?

I'm one of those people who says smooch my donkey instead of the earthier version... is it okay if I still follow your blog?

And college? NO EFFIN WAY.
Someone could offer me a full ride scholarship to the institution of my choice, pay all my bills, do my housework, massage my feet, and give me a monthly allowance 10 times my salary and I'd still run the other way. Screaming. Loudly.

Good luck.

Kernut the Blond said...

Waitaminute... I see what you did. You picked the chunky, and camel-toed pic of me as revenge for the photo I used of us on my blog, didn't you? (jk! Well, about the revenge thing. I do look chunky and camel-toed in that pic. *sigh* Note to self: Eat less chocolate.)

Love the dress!

Mrs. Tuna said...

Yeah well, I didn't have a big choice on our meet and greet pictures. It was either look preggers or the one I picked where I look like I have a stick up my a***, sigh.

Kelly L said...

You make me laugh out loud - good luck in school

Who could be offended by vino slut? I say much worse things on my blog and nobody gives a fuck. Oh, I guess that's because I hardly have any followers to fuck. Now, that didn't come out right, did it? Somebody found my blog with the search term "fucking my skinny wife." I'm still trying to figure out that one.

Love,
Lola

Hey, that sounds great! I'll add it to my list of dip-type-things I live on when my husband is out of town. He calls it Silly Crap Food (he doesn't like dip-type-things)!

I'll just have to post another Aussie Public loo to distract you from your studies - my previous attempts having dismally failed! It's the best I can do - I guess it's too late to cancel the course and live for pleasure??

Annie (Lady M) x said...

No life without cheese is right! I would be dead within weeks. Study hard. Here is a practice question: Does your planning allow the basket you are weaving be zoned for both wine and cheese?

Frazzled Mama said...

Hi!! I'm stopping by and following from Wild Weekend Hop. I hope you'll check out my blog Frazzled Mama at http://frazzled-mama.com and follow me back.

I'm actually pretty impressed with how many courses you're going to take on. You will do great!

Emily said...

And here I thought you were just really excited about your mint pesto recipe! I don't think I even own a miniskirt any more. At least I haven't bought any in about ten years! Call me old-fashioned but I do not believe women over 30 should wear them! Good luck!

Mrs. Pancakes said...

Last picture of Carol is too cute!

Meg at the Members Lounge said...

Giving up dairy, huh? Another thing that makes me sad. Mini-skirts? Even more bummed out.

That pesto sounds delicious! And Mrs. Tuna? 5 classes? Are you trying to say you don't want to blog anymore? Come up for air when you can!

Vapid Vixen said...

Man hands my ass. Those are Jazz hands if I ever did see them, and who couldn't do with a little more jazz pizzazz in their day? Hope you get the Kindle!

Dee said...

I love your sense of humor and your bravery. 5 classes...huh? You go girl!

P.S. You looked fine in your picture, don't downplay your fabulousness, it might become a bad habit before you know it.

Shawn said...

I agree, those are Jazz Hands..anyone can see that!

Vino Slut, Wine Whore..you say tomato , I say tomatoe!!!

Doreen said...

You crack me up! It is so cool to meet blog friends...School, so glad its over and you will be too. Took me 12 years to finish 4 years of college...cause of the single Mom thing.
I've missed you glad you are back. My husband and my granddaughter leave/or lose their cell and lap top chords everywhere...ugghh

Darlene said...

HI. Stopping over (and following) from Facing50. You look great in your minisirt. The mint pesto sounds yummy! Sounds like you have a very interesting year ahead!

Elisabeth Hirsch said...

You look fantastic!

P. S. That recipe sounds awesome :0) Oh and I LOVE cheese too. I'm a Tillamook addict. lol

Craziness abounds said...

Hi I'm so glad you came over to visit. I saw your pictures on Carol's blog and you look smashing even sideways! haha Had you gone back to Saturday's post you would have seen my interview with Phil. He is a card!
Now as for your post.. I'm very jealous that you are out playing in Ca while I'm stuck in boring Utah. Also I will be trying this recipe as it looks delicious

Hilary said...

Love the pictures!!!!

CanadianMama said...

That's not a mini skirt - cheater!! Haha, looks like it was a great trip and I'm glad you got a break before diving into school insanity!

cajunlicious said...

Amazing pesto! i love your blog post!

Xmas Dolly said...

Well, that recipe sounds really different. Thanks for signing up with us, and sharing at our Recipe Swap Meet!

Sandra said...

Hey Mrs. Tuna Hussy Loving Extraordinaire, I got stuck in traffic. How are you? I still love you even if you're a vino slut! I love you more actually. Not let loose a good swear word, and we're attached at the hip for life! Another book writer in our midsts? I won't hate her, but I too will seethe with jealous while smiling to pretend I'm not seething with jealousy! I hear ya about the back-to-school blues. I start next week sometime. I don't even know when truthfully because I keep trying to talk myself out of it. I keep thinking I could be perfectly happy selling sweat pants for minimum wage. I bitch slap you, you bitch slap me. Between the two of us, someone is bound to come up with a solution, right?
