Friday Fragments?'s Friday and that means that Mrs. 4444 is hosting Friday Fragments over at her blog Half Past Kissin' Time, don't forget to visit her site and link your Friday Fragments up and read her fragments as well as the fragments of other bloggers!

~ First and foremost, I would like to recognize all of those who died in the September 11th attacks eight years ago. We will never forget and you will always remain close to our hearts.

~You've probably figured out by now that I like reality tv. I'll watch anything (thanks to my dvr) but I especially love TLC reality (not so much J&K+8 anymore) and my latest favorite is Police Women of Broward County. Those women are TOUGH! For a split second it made me want to be a cop but then I realized that meant I'd have to be sprayed in the face with mace AND tazed...and I'm sorry but that's a deal breaker for me. So, I'm driving to work on Wednesday and there's a big tractor trailer in front of me pulling a gigantic boat. When I begin to pass it I notice the name on the boat is....wait for it.....Broward County Sheriff's Department! It looked a lot like this except it was much bigger:
~ Sway Calloway, since you ask all the questions for MTV I thought it was your turn to be in the hot seat. If you are unsure who Sway Calloway is please see the picture below:

*What is under your hat? Is that really all hair or do you have a piece of Styrofoam shoved up under there?

*What do you do at airport security? Do they make you take your hat off? Do you comply with their request? Or are you too embarrassed to take off your hat because you don't want to expose yourself as a hair fraud plus you don't want anyone to see the piece of Styrofoam that really holds your hat up.

*Is your name Sway because your hair/Styrofoam piece sways in the wind occasionally causing you to fall down or stumble?

This concludes my interview, Mr. Calloway. Your cooperation will be appreciated.

~ The other night I went outside to smoke enjoy the night air before I went to bed. I had put Gidget in the back yard because it's fenced in and I had gone to the front porch because I have this fear of being on the back porch and someone entering my house without my knowledge plus in general I feel safer on the front porch because it's not so dark and woodsy. I start hearing this noise blood curdling screaming that I thought at first was someone being killed very slowly, but then I decided it was just some pesky dog. The longer this went on the more and more it started to sound like Gidget's famous "I will bark at you until you get too close to me and then I will act like you are murdering me" bark. So I bolt to the back door (because I thought she was DYING) and she was standing in the yard screaming at something. I couldn't see what it was, I couldn't get her to stop screaming or to come inside so I left her out back. There is no point in trying to get that dog to come in before she's ready...she's stubborn like that and I have no idea who she gets it from. After I finished my smoke deep breath of night air I went back to the back porch and she had stopped barking and was pawing at the door ready to come in. I still wonder what was back there....because I've never heard her wail like that!

~To end this Friday Fragment post I will leave you with a special treat; TWO Mitch Hedberg quotes (I know you're excited):

  • You know they call corn-on-the-cob "corn-on-the-cob" right? But that's how it comes out of the ground, man. They should call that "corn." They should call every other version "corn-off-the-cob." It's not like if you cut off my arm you would call my arm "Mitch." But then reattach it and call it "Mitch-all-together!"
  • This shirt is "dry-clean only"...which means it's dirty.


  1. I don't know who the Mitch guy is but I love the corn quote.

    I go out at night for a breath of night air, too. Getting tired of having to pick up all those damn butts though.

    and for me, the idea of being puked on by a drunk would be a deal breaker for me, so far as being a cop. Plsu, I am not really all that fond of guns. Or uniforms. Or any job where I might have to run.

  2. Happy VGNO. I've never seen the Police Women of Broward County, but my cousin is addicted. She left my house early last night just to go watch it since I don't have cable !!! Thanks for stopping by my place. Have a great week-end too !

  3. The Mitch quotes were too funny! LOL I have also been watching Police Women of Broward County. They are awesome! I saw you post on my friend Jamie's page. I am also an infantryman's wife, so it's nice to see another! Tell your hubby thank you for his service! My dog went pyscho on my looking out our front window the other night and I didnt see a thing... creepy! Great FF!!

  4. I'm going to start saying "corn off the cob". I mean when you're right, you're right.

  5. Love the Mitch quotes!

    Your 'interview' for Sway Calloway was way too funny... ;)

    Our dogs were barking their heads off at something in the back yard the other night, too - we couldn't tell what it was, but I'm hoping it's not the skunk family returning to be squatters at the neighbors house again...

    Happy FF! :)

  6. I loved your interview with Sway cute! Corn off the cob makes a heck of a lot more sense too :).

  7. Ooh... I wonder if it there was a coyote or mountain lion somewhere out there and your dog was trying to warn the neighborhood (I don't know where you live, so I don't know if you have those creatures or not) - a mountain lion would make me scream like I was dying! ;)

  8. If I had a big hat like that, I'd store kittens in the end *L*

  9. Has Sway gotten back to you yet? I am now curious to know what exactly IS under his hat!!!!

  10. That's funny-every piece of dryclean-only clothing that I own (three things) is dirty.

    That's freaky about your dog!

    OMG-I hope Mr.Sway answers your questions, because inquiring minds want to know!

  11. Great list... especially love the comments about Sway and "corn off the cob"!

  12. Great fragments!! You questions to Sway CRACK me up...I wish he would answer those!! And the corn on the cob thing is hilarious, too! Happy (very late!) FF! :)
