Honey Boo Boo: Lessons Among the Storm

Yes, we are awaiting the arrival of now Tropical Strom Isaac while some are living with his aftermath as I write this. My motto: Just because things are not great at the moment does not mean we still can't have fun, especially if you still have power and watched Honey Boo Boo tonight! This week's episode was just jammed packed with some great lessons.So, being that at any moment power could be lost, let's not delay in this week's Lessons from Honey Boo Boo: 1. Honey Boo Boo is not ready for baby Kaitlyn (who is still in the oven) to come because baby Kaitlyn will smell like "poo" when she "poos"---What did you expect?? Roses?? Fresh linen??? 2. As an english major, I was happy to learn that "Bakin'" and "Bacon" are synonyms................ 3. Honey Boo Boo wants to have 1,000 kids or just 30 cause that's as far as she can count----Dear Lord, no!! Please, just no!! We can't handle it!! 4. Just what is a buttho

Odd Hurricane Preps

  If you live in a gulf coast state, chances are you have lived through a hurricane. Currently, we are dealing with Isaac and by dealing with, I mean it’s coming. As I made preparations today, I realized some of my priorities in preparedness are quite unconventional. So, if you are more inland, like I am, you may relate to some of these tips. 1. You should always prepare for a hurricane with a stash of chocolate and caffeine. Should the power go out, everything is amplified! Nerves are shot and its hot. Pop a small piece of chocolate in your mouth, a little sip of caffeine and suddenly everything is a little bit better. Here's my stash for Isaac: 2. If you are riding the storm out with a menopausal , hormonal, woman: have a battery operated fan with back up batteries. Of course, there's always the option of a nice looking cabana boy with a big palm leaf. It is strictly your decision, these are just suggestions. 3. Should you lose power, we all know it will be

Honey Boo Boo: The Educator

This week, we were only lucky enough to have 1 new episode of "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo," I am thankful yet a little sad. Thankful, because school has started and I am already crazy!! Sad because, well, that means less time for mindless entertainment yet, we still can learn something from our beloved Honey Boo Boo: So without delay, let's see what I learned from Honey Boo Boo this week: 1. Honey Boo Boo uses Christmas decorations because it really just helps her know which house is hers. Um, Honey Boo Boo, was the train that runs almost through your house not landmark enough?? God forbid, you know the house number. 2. Her dance moves "get stuck in (her) brain so (she) can't remember them all after her praxticed"....what?!?! Please someone explain this logic to me!!! 3. Two Words: Kuntry Stoe 4. "Oh my door nuts!!".....what?!?!?! 5. When Honey Boo Boo started speaking in "Spanish" I suddenly had a renewed confidence in my own s

More Things I Learned from "Honey Boo Boo"

Once again, I sat, jaw on the floor, eyes glued to the TV as Honey Boo Boo and family amazed me with their existence. I have some more lessons but as I look over my list, because yes I jotted down notes, there's so much in that hour, I believe I have more questions this week. So, let's go over these lessons from Honey Boo Boo: 1. "Pageants are an expensive sport." ---I didn't know they were a sport. 2. "Couponing is better than sex." ---Well, that doesn't say much for ole Sugar Bear. 3. Mama June's sneezes/coughs/whatever you call that, sound like a horse that is being beaten. Someone please give this woman some coupons for some Zyrtec!! 4. "Rock it like a stupistar"--I'm sorry?? I don't know what that is! 5. Elvis is indeed alive. He lives at the North Pole and helps Santa build toys!! Hmmm... my tour of Graceland failed to mention that detail of his life. 6. WHY???? Would you have a pig at the dinner table??? And W

Things I Learned From "Honey Boo Boo"

Tonight, I sat with my jaw on the floor for a solid hour, not able to turn the channel from the train wreck that is "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo." I, like many of you, sat in amazement that these are real people, breathing real air, speaking some form of English that was foreign to me, real people; However, I believe we can all learn from each other. With that being said, I would like to share a few of the lessons that I learned from Honey Boo Boo tonight. 1. A new phrase: "All that vajiggle jaggle is not beautimous!" (spell check is having a hay day right now!) Translation: Girls, wear clothes that fit. 2. Desperation has a smell that can be mixed with hairspray. 3. Talking with your belly is never attractive, no matter your age. 4. There are "Redneck Games" where people "Bob for Pig's Feet" (I just threw up...again) and "Mud Pit Belly Flop" is the highlight event 5. If one would like to lose weight, one must pass gas 12-15
