This is big news, people. The Roseanne house is for sale.  I have the opportunity to go inside it instead of just standing in front of it like a creep!

Anyway, the house is for sale.  Here’s the listing.

I Officially Have a Roseanne Problem…

Look what I did.  Look.  It was one thing to get the afghan.  But then I did this:

I have a problem.  A huge huge problem.  I’ve put myself into the cast.  I’ve made myself a part of Roseanne.  🙂 Doesn’t it look so natural?

SO natural.  🙂

Roseanne Afghan ACHIEVED

Remember how I said I wanted a copy of the afghan that sat on the back of Roseanne’s couch?

ACHIEVED, thanks to Mike’s mom Terry, his sister Lindsay, and Grandma Dorothy!

I love you guys so much!  thanks for this.  🙂  Not only is it a Roseanne afghan, but it was also made by three generations of my boyfriend’s family.  And I love that.

On a not so happy note, lots of bad things happened this weekend.  I just pray that this isn’t how the world is going to be from here on out.  We need to take care of each other (0:50 in the video).

Afghan Update

Mike’s mom and sister are making the Roseanne afghan as we speak!  I’m so excited. They’re so good to me.  Just let me know the bill for labor and yarn, guys! 🙂  Love you bunches.

In other news, 27 isn’t turning out to be what I thought it would be.  Let’s just hope it gets better.

Call for Crafty Help

CALLING YOU CRAFTY PEOPLE who know how to crochet or knit.

Lindsay, I hope you’re still reading my blog, because I know you could help me with this.  I want to make the afghan that sat on the back of Roseanne’s couch for the majority of the seasons.

See it?  Isn’t it wonderful and gaudy and lovely?!  I want to make it.  So who’s going to help me?

I found the pattern here and here (they seem different to me) and if anyone can help me get this started/done, I would really appreciate it!  Because I mean, seriously, how sexy would this look on the back of my couch?

“People Are Too Dumb To Pick Their Own Leaders”

My favorite, and probably truest, headline.

Note:  What’s with Erica getting so political all of the sudden?  Could it be part of her restyle?

Anyway, if you’ll remember awhile back, I was all anti-politics and anti-voting.  And there was a good reason:  because I am not informed enough to vote, and I don’t care enough to be informed.

I have no interest in voting because I do not want to devote the time to learning about all of the issues and all of the politicians’ stances.  Plus, well, I just think the whole thing is corrupt.  But then I see the headline above and I start to read through the article (and even though it’s from The Daily Mail), I find some truth in it.

The majority of Americans are too dumb to pick a leader.  Too dumb in the fact that they are like me and do not want to do the research.  I mean, when I found Roseanne was running for President, I wanted to vote for her just because she’s Roseanne.  Which leads me back to the point I made in this post:  because leaders are only in office for 4 years, we don’t put too much precedence on throwing them in there.

Maybe we all ought to care a little more (myself included).  Maybe we will now that we’re ticked off at gas prices. 😉

NOTE:  I have been informed that the President has nothing to do with gas prices.  This explains my earlier statements in the post:  I am dumb.  Thanks, David!  You’re lucky I still like you.

Roseanne for President (?) (!) (?)

…I’m conflicted.  Seriously conflicted.  Because Roseanne is legitimately running for POTUS for the Green Party.  Now you all know how much I love Roseanne.  She rocks my world.  But as President of the United States?  I’ll say it again:  I’m conflicted.

Now I don’t like politics, and I don’t like talking about them, but I think this is something that is worth talking about.  I don’t particularly blame any president for anything, and I don’t not blame them either because I don’t vote and when I relinquished my right to vote, I also relinquished my right to complain.

But in a rare moment, I will tell you why I think this whole presidential thing isn’t going to work…regardless of who is in the White House.  I don’t think that terms should only be 4 years long.  I don’t think that people should be limited to serving only 2 terms.

There are 3 reasons for this:

  1. If terms were longer and unlimited, people would have to think harder about who they were electing.
  2. People would also not vote on whims because they know that if someone doesn’t end up meeting their standards, they can vote someone new in in just a few years.
  3. And the big one is this:  Our presidents would have more time to accomplish their goals, to see long-range results, and to put the country in a better place.

No one can accomplish anything in 4 years, or even 8 years.  In order to make changes, you have to have people in the White House who believe the same thing and to carry on with the same plans.  But each new person has his (or I guess “her” someday) own agenda and their own dreams about how they can fix things, and then when their term is up, those dreams are dropped for the next new thing.

I love democracy, and I love the idea of a monarchy.  It’s like a long-standing business–a government built on values that are held in place for more than 4 years, and most likely carried on by family members.

Unfortunately, America doesn’t have a family that I would trust to run this joint.  Our celebrities are our royalty, and those people are hardly fit for ruling.

So about Roseanne running for President…I’m still conflicted.  I like her ideas, and I think that with some persuasion, I could be re-registering to vote here soon.  But I also fear how anti-now she is about everything.

But then I think (like the typical American), “What harm could she do? I mean, if she’s elected, she’ll be out in 4 years anyway.”  Maybe we need a radical change.  Maybe we don’t.

Until I register to vote, though, I’ll shut up and get my ass back to the kitchen.

Which Becky Was Better?

I have to show you this. I laughed my ass off.  The Roseanne stuff kicks in at 1:10.

Lecy Goranson was the original Becky.  And Sarah Chalke filled in intermittently.  I have an affection for both of the Beckys.  I mean, Lecy Goranson was the original, and the way that she said, “MOTHER!” just killed me every time.  But you have to love Sarah Chalke–a kinder, sweeter version of the mouthy little Becky.  But her face isn’t nearly as expressive.  And the truth is that I’m just not sure she ever really fit into the family.

I did like her as the neighbor on Halloween though…

Which begs the question:  Which Becky was better?

A Power Hour…on Twitter? And a New Roseanne Friend!

It’s true.  Power Hours no longer have to be experienced in a dirty sticky dorm room with Natural Light cans falling to the ground every few minutes.  Power Hours have taken to the interwebs!  Last night, I experienced something wonderful–my first Power Hour via Twitter.

I did Power Hours all the time in college.  For those of you who have no idea what I’m talking about, a Power Hour is an hour in which you take a shot of beer every consecutive minute for an hour.  This is usually timed to a CD of 1-minute snippets of 60 songs pieced together.

Since college, though, I’ve only done a few Power Hours.  My darling old roommate Kay and her husband Matt still do Power Hours on a regular basis and this makes me proud.

My friend Mike created a Twitter handle specifically for the purpose of Power Hours on Twitter, and about 5 of us got online last night to partake.  I have to say that I miss these people from college terribly.  It was so nice to be able to sneak a case of Natty Light in a backpack (remember, Ashland University is “dry”) up the stairs to the dorm rooms or the frat house and hunker down with your friends (which is something you should do if you are currently attending or plan to attend AU).

I was introduced (via Twitter, of course) to a woman named Kendal.  In the process of the Power Hour, Mike asked what song was playing for each of us.

I answered that I was not, in fact, listening to a CD, but rather watching Roseanne.  Simultaneously, Kendal said the same thing.  She, like me, does not have cable and watches all 9 seasons of Roseanne on repeat.  Just.  Like.  Me.

The world stopped for a few seconds.  With her on Season 2, Disc 1, and me on Season 8, Disc 2, I knew that something spectacular had happened.

Kay, Kendal, and I are going to have to get together and watch Roseanne.  There have to be drinking games to Roseanne, right?  Oh wait, here‘s one!

All the Things I Didn’t Know About Roseanne…

So for Christmas, my momma gave me all 9 seasons of Roseanne.  I was SO excited (even though I found them online and bought them).

This gift came with some surprises though.  For instance, the discs were advertised as new…which they are not.  I found some of them covered with scratches and thick with pot residue.  So that was awesome.

But even the seasons are coming with surprises.  I mean, I had seasons 1, 2, 3, 4, and 6 for the longest time.  And in watching season 5, I was blown away by some of it.

  • •  I forgot that Dan went to jail for kicking Fisher’s ass.
  • •  I forgot how big a scene it was when Becky eloped with Mark.
  • •  I forgot how hot Mark was.
  • •  Plus, I LOVE LOVE LOVE that they wear some of the same clothes throughout the entire series.

The infamous chicken shirt.

And then season 7…holy cats!

  • •  I forgot Roseanne was pregnant.
  • •  I had no idea that they told her it was a girl.
  • •  I had no idea that Roseanne’s grandma had two abortions.
  • •  Plus no idea that Roseanne was afraid there was something wrong with the baby.
  • •  Never saw the one where DJ acted dumb in class so he wouldn’t have to stand up with a boner.

And I’m still going.  I can’t wait for the rest of 7 and then 8 and 9.  Hopefully my friend Mikey (not to be confused with MY Mike) can run the discs through one of those crazy lil disc cleaner things.
