How I Became Van Helen...
tried to put tweets people sent me in boldface to make the post easier to follow this week. As usual, bottoms up!
@BridgetChumbley Thanks. Sprouting tomato plants are really little, but I feel so hopeful for summer tomatoes now. Hopeful feels good!
@BridgetChumbley @Helenatrandom The little things are sometimes the most important. I'm so glad to hear you are happy! #yayfortomatoes
My tomato seeds have started to sprout. I am happy. I am honestly happy. Wow. It's been a while... (Can you tell I love tomatoes?)
@makeadiff21 Hi Ginny! Snow is melted here in Chicago. Or at least it is in my yard. Today is a good day.
@katdish Buenos tag, mi schwester... Spanish + German = TWSS
Hot cup of instant cappuccino....I should've given it up for Lent, but didn't. Man, it is sooooo good!!!
@marni71 @CandySteele we named our cars Mary Kate and Ashley... Mary Kate had to be traded in, but I'm still driving Ashley...
@CandySteele thanks. I wrote that down. I don't think we get any weeds with red leaves in our yard, so it sounds like that'll work.
@CandySteele @Helenatrandom Get spring mix or mesclun or something like that. It's so purty. Reds & dark greens are the healthiest.
@CandySteele Haven't bought the seeds yet. I've been reading packages,trying to determine which looks less like crabgrass. #idowannaeatweeds
@CandySteele @Helenatrandom It does, but it doesnt like scorching heat. What kind of lettuce?
@CandySteele The directions say Spring and Fall. So it does not grow in the Summer?
@CandySteele @Helenatrandom No, I'd wait until Mother's day. But don't plant it all at once or you'll be harvesting all at once.
@CandySteele Good morning! Should I be planting lettuce yet? The directions say early in the Spring... But last frost date is late April

On top of spaghetti ... all covered in cheese... I lost my poor meatball....when somebody sneezed....
@emptynestegg And you can bet real money I wouldn't have let any of my students sing HALF of them....
@emptynestegg No. I was describing what we sang on the bus on a field trip when I was a kid...
@BridgetChumbley "Lou Lou had a steamboat, the steamboat had a bell, the steamboat went to heaven, and Lou Lou went to Hello operator .."
@BridgetChumbley Our song was loosely based on this idea http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hX3qfbanNj8&feature=related (
Warning: Click at your own risk. These lyrics could make a sailor blush! )
@BridgetChumbley And probably their favorite part. We used to sing a song on the bus called "Bang Bang Lou Lou"
@weightwhat Apparently, it's "ceinture". #ilovegooglesearch
@weightwhat @Helenatrandom Okay. How do you say "the hoist, squeeze, pull and groan" in French?
@weightwhat I think we could both work that look. Can we come up with a fancy French name for a girdle, though.?
@weightwhat @Helenatrandom Maybe I could wear a hair piece and a girdle, just like the real band does now, huh?
@weightwhat @Helenatrandom I'd like to be in your all girl tribute band, but I don't have the big hair and rockin' bod I used to have.
@br8kthru @Helenatrandom yep- I think you should go for it.
@br8kthru An all girl tribute band...
@weightwhat @makeadiff21 Well, I think I can sing. I don't know if anyone else agrees with me....
@br8kthru @Helenatrandom RE: Van Helen -you could start a tribute band...
@weightwhat @Helenatrandom Yes. Yes it does. Can you do some big hair and sing?
@makeadiff21 @Helenatrandom You're not gonna go all psycho on us tho are ya?
@makeadiff21 "Van Helen"... has a vice ring to it though, doesn't it?
@weightwhat If I hibernated until I was a size 8, my name would be changed to Rip Van Helen...
@weightwhat @makeadiff21 Not the best today. Too many things weighing on my mind. I'd like to hibernate until it's over. And I'm a size 8.
I am drinking a cup of instant cappuccino with added magnesium. YUMMY!!!
@sarahmsalter I enjoyed your post. Especially when you mentioned feeling the Spirit when you got choked up at Apostle's Creed.
@sarahmsalter I had a good morning. I finished my receipts for the ICF today. (I am the "Financial Secretary. I collect dues..)
RT @katdish So, are y'all following my dog yet? Priorities, people! @BuddyLovetheDog
RT @katdish Follow Monday - @buddylovethedog
@whataboutbobdog Well, not any more. But she used to be...
@whataboutbobdog Please don't eat BunBun. She is my friend....
Red grapefruits are so pretty on the inside. Almost too pretty to eat. Almost....
The first movie I ever saw with Bob was "While You Were Sleeping." It was our first sighted (as opposed to blind) date...
