Well, March sure roared into Ohio like a lion on steroids. Snow, snow, freezing rain, snow, fog, freezing rain. Forecast calls for another 4-8 inches of snow on Thursday.
I ordered this Hero Arts stamp because it, like the postage set from yesterday's post, was on sale at JoAnn's. It's pretty close to another winter scene stamp in my stash, but it's a bit smaller, and that means bigger white borders, which makes me happy because, you know, I like big borders and I cannot lie....
I'm sorry. That was uncalled for.
But my 12-year-old keeps singing that song (about butts, not borders) and asking me why he can't sing it at school. For the same reason he can't call blue gemstones "blubies" at school and he can't call his friend Sophie "foxy" ever or anywhere, no matter that Manny calls Queen Latifah "foxy" in Ice Age 2.
Because it's inappropriate.
Autism causes my son to repeat movie lines or bits of music over and over and over (which is why I will be singing the songs from Blue's Clues in the dementia ward of the nursing home because ohmygosh, here's the mail it never fails it makes me want to wag my tail....). Autism also makes him ask the same questions over and over and over because it's comforting when the answer doesn't change.
It's lots of fun when the movie lines or music or questions are socially inappropriate, don't you think? Sure you do because you said "blubies" out loud several times, and it is fun to say! Inappropriate, of course, but how correct is it that we call red gemstones "rubies" and blue ones "sapphires"? That can't be right!!!
"Excuse me, ma'am, but how big are your blubies?"
Oh, I did it again. So sorry.
This is a stamping blog so perhaps I should say something about stamping this pretty card with its big white border.
I got nothing.
Check back tomorrow. Maybe then my brain will be thawed. I sure hope so, because right now that earworm of a song is all I can think of.
Peace and joy to you.
