Thursday in paradise...

Today will find me in the club with lunch first and then canasta.  Thursdays are lovely around here.  

Yesterday one of the MahJong gals was so funny.  It seems she gets leg cramps.  She is older than I am but very cute and single.  Well she got a leg cramp at the table and had to lay on the floor yelling until it passed.  One of the other gals asked her what she'd do if it happened while she was on a date.  Without batting an eye she said she'd just tell him she was having a spontaneous orgasm.  My friends are a hoot y'all.

Has anyone read Gone Girl?  I am about to start it, I hear it is really something.  And speaking of my self imposed September shopping ban - what was I thinking?  The iPhone5 is coming out in two days!  I have waited so long for it and now I have to wait until October.  Rats. But wait I will.  Man.

Oh, I also want to tell you that if you bought some of those corn tortillas I told you about the other day, well guess what you can do with the leftovers?  Put three of them on a paper towel and put it in the microwave for about 2 1/2 minutes or a bit more and then they will brown some.  Take them out and break them up and you have very low calorie and fat free chips for your hummus or salsa!  You're welcome.  And another thing you can do is turn a cupcake pan upside down and push them between the cups and bake them to make a taco bowl for your ground turkey, salsa, lettuce and salsa.  Again, you're welcome.  Can you tell I like Mexican food?

Big Brother is in the final week of the season.  That means it's time for Survivor!  

And that is all my brain knows today my friends.  Hope your Thursday is as good as mine!


  1. Bee you are so funny ! Great post today.
    When I get a leg cramp I was told to stand up on the leg but she and your Mah Jong lady are a hoot...
    I was thinking of looking at the new iphone but I hear the Samsung was better ?

    cheers, parsnip

  2. I am not sure on the iphone 5 myself not sure on the size I will have to check it out in person. I have a4 hubby has a 4s . I am dues for a upgrade. you can also cut the tortilla into strips before baking and get the crispy and put the strips on salad

  3. for leg cramps, take a tablespoon of brown mustard. Works right away, apsolutly amazing!I just did it the other night. Swallow it down.

  4. I walk off a cramp. Thankfully, I rarely get them. Staying hydrated and making sure you get enough potassium helps keep them away.

    I am not too much for Mexican but years ago I loved a Taco Salad once in a while. There was a Taco Bell just down the block from my office in Florida.

    Good for you sticking to your self-imposed shopping ban. I didn't think I wanted the iPhone 5, but now I might. However, I am not eligible for another upgrade for another 18 months or so since I just got the 4S. I guess I will just have to wait!

    Have a lovely day! big hugs xoxo

  5. Buongiorno!!

    Clever can write a handbook of cooking tips and trics for diet followers...your ideas are so simple...but who could find them out? Only Miss Bee!
    Have a fantastic Thursday!

    Big hugs!

  6. the mom gets leg cramps too - but she just kicks the air wildly in the middle of the night to get rid of them. You are furry smart Auntie Bee- those are good cooking tips!

    PURRRSSSSS xoxoxoxoxo - your Sammie Pie

  7. Love that explanation on the date thingy!!!

    My phone upgrade is due in December. Oh yeah baby!

    Have a great day. Big hugs, honey...

  8. Survivor AND The Amazing Race--love them both.

  9. I am getting the iPhone5 and it will be my first Apple device of any kind. I have a Samsung Galaxy android phone now, but all my co-workers have iPhones and they have talked me into it. I will be switching from Sprint to Verizon too; lots of changes.

  10. Great tip on the muffin pan, I had not thought of turning it over! I will be trying this one. Have a great day!

  11. But what do you think of Apple changing the plug-in for the iPhone 5? For years, all their devices had interchangeable plugs... but, with this new device, not any longer.

    Of course, I won't be getting it, new cord or no. I'm still not smart enough for a smart phone.

    Maybe someday.

  12. Oh that gal is a hoot and a half. I love a quick, cheeky comeback too. Good for her. I do agree that she needs more water and potassium helps too. I used to get them horrible, but not anymore.

    Thanks for all the great tips. I too love Mexican food and much of it is so high calorie. This is a nice option.

    Have a terrific day. Big hugs honey. :)

  13. Oh my gosh, I would have busted out laughing (then peed my pants) over that one...LOL! She's funny!

    I love Mexican food. The good thing about corn tortillas are that they are so versatile and naturally whole grain.

    Enjoy your day today!

  14. Bee, I like the bowl idea. You are really clever. You girls are having way too much fun at cards. LOL. Love the "orgasm" story. xo, Susie

  15. I'm going to remember the leg cramp story for awhile!

  16. The leg cramp gal is a hoot!...You have some great food tips as well...

    ...Hope your Thursday was fantastic!

    PLU from SSF

  17. Am I the only one without an iPhone here? Seems like it and that's okay. I still have an old fashioned Samsung flip phone. I was though hoping for a smaller cheaper iPad. That could have tempted me. I find the iPads too big and heavy for rheumatic hands...ciao

  18. Just been catching up with what you've posted whilst I've been away Bee. Glad to hear you've been enjoying the pool and you're doing so well with the shopping ban, oh and comcast came up trumps eventually eh? I'll be blogging about my trip once we get the 400+ photos downloaded and my copious notes in some sort of order - we saw so many places I just had to make notes!


you know i love comments, don't be shy! and if you are a spammer that got through, buggers to you. get a life somewhere else!
