The Legend of the Meatfloat

When I was in college I worked for a brief time at the ARC of Westmoreland.  One of my duties was to make dinner for the individuals I worked with when I was on shift.

It was here I first made my BBQ Meatloaf.  The ladies loved it and I made it often.  I never had an issue making a meatloaf.

Then we moved into my husband’s grandparents house… the kitchen is cursed.  No one can make a meatloaf in this house.   Many have tried, most have failed.

We refer to the sad excuse of a liquefied meatloaf as a “meatfloat”.

My first attempt to make a meatloaf in the cursed kitchen ended as a meatfloat.

I have successfully made many meatloaves since that first disaster, but the legend lives on.

Tonight I prepped dinner for tomorrow night.  Alayna asked what I was doing. I replied; “I’m mixing up the meatloaf so all i need to do is put it in the oven after work tomorrow.

In unison my husband and my daughter exclaimed;






Weird Al Strikes Again

Silly Saturday



Recently parody genius, Weird Al Yankovic added a bunch of new songs to his repertoire.  As always they have become instant hits.

I decided for this “Silly Saturday” to share my favorite Weird Al songs, including two of the new ones that I think just about everyone loves.

A Big “Oops”

Silly Saturday



All week this one video has amused me to no end.  Some guy had the WONDERFUL idea of dressing up so he appeared to be headless.  Think Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hallow, except no horse, no murderous rage, and a few very amusing trips through various drive-thru lines.

What gets me is no one asked, “how are you still alive?” or “did it hurt?”.  NO…. They ask “Where’s your head at?”


But I am going to have concede that the funniest thing of the week is the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s screw up.  Who ever sent the files from PennDOT to Selective service sent them as ’93, ’94, ’95,’96, ’97….

But this was 1893 – 1897…

That’s right, 14k men born between 1893 – 1897 received a letter telling them that they needed to register for selective service or face the consequences.

This left many 70 year old and older individuals very confused as their parents and grandparents, who by the way are long since deceased, were receiving selective service notices.
