Sick….and tired


Christmas Zentangle

Just like George Carlin. 

So, on top of the stomach ills I now have a cold.  I started coughing last night and now my throat feels like I yelled all night.  I feel like poo.  Actually…… have you heard the new Word of the new generation?  Remember RAD, COOL, AWESOME?  Like totally…..  Now it’s EPIC.  I feel like EPIC poo.  Riley says I use it wrong.  You’re supposed to say something is epic….  like “that’s epic”.  Why can’t there be EPIC poo?  I don’t get it.

I looked it up.  This is from


  /ˈɛpɪk/ Show Spelled[ep-ik] Show IPA

adjective Also, ep·i·cal.

1. noting or pertaining to a long poetic composition, usually centered upon a hero, in whicha series of great achievements or events is narrated in elevated style: Homer’s Iliad is an epic poem.
2. resembling or suggesting such poetry: an epic novel on the founding of the country.
3. heroic; majestic; impressively great: the epic events of the war.
4. of unusually great size or extent: a crime wave of epic proportions.
I definitely feel like EPIC something.
So, my son formally known as Jared…. currently known as butthead (read previous post) came home from school and tried to make peace without an apology.  I knew he would do that so I was prepared.  I was geared up to be mad at him for a long long time.  So he turns on pandora on the big screen TV.  He starts playing this station that has music  that I love…. The eagles….. def leppard…. guns and roses………  Next thing I know I’m singing along and talking to him like he was my best bud………. and my “madness” is on the ground in crumbles.  darn it!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Oh, and he was eating laughy taffys from last night and saved this one for me. 
What has more lives than a cat?
A frog…. they croak every night. 
LOL!  I love it :O)
Okay, so I haven’t painted anything yet.   I woke up feeling like I was 90 years old and my hands hurt so bad I had to have my son open my meds.  I’ll have to add something later.  And I will.

  1. Epic. I think I have heard that new one…and tis a good one, me thinks.

    Aha! So, formerly Jared has Mom’s number–ROFL!! Unfair advantage when Mom feels like epic poo and is susceptible to small kindnesses–LOL! 😉

    Just count looking things up in the dictionary as artsy for today, right? Hope you sleep well and feel lots better tomorrow. *hugs*

  2. Rita, I actually made a zentangle for a Christmas card and just added it to the post. I saw a Zentangle instructor last month at the Watercolor Society Meeting I go to. It was really interesting. I just made up all my designs for this. I’ll probably work on a few more versions. I painted it using watercolor paint and some gold acrylic paint. Last year I made all of my Christmas cards completely different and it took forever! I used a lot of different methods though – scrapbooking paper, rubber stamps, paint, stickers and rub-ons…. everything. It was fun but I didn’t get myself much time to do it and I was working then. This year should be better.

    And yes, I think both my kids have me figured out LOL

  3. That’s a really cute Christmas zentangle!

    So sorry you’re not well….feel better soon. I think you are entitled to say you feel like epic poo when you’re that sick. My kids tend to trick me out of my anger too….I guess I’m a softie. 😉

    I’ll be following along through AEDM….nice to ‘meet’ you,

    Serena 🙂

  4. I love zentangles! I haven’t tried to draw any yet though. I do admire others who do!

    I guess this means “uber” is no longer the thing to say? *lol* I hope you feel better soon.

    I found you through AEDM and look forward to seeing more.

    Warmly, Tracy

  5. Epic Poo… I love that so much and it is sooo getting a work out at our house now… very impressed with Butthead’s level of manipulation also… he should meet my daughter formally known as Phoebe but currently called Steve… they would be a formidable pairing… can’t wait to hear what happens next xx
