Things that creeped me out while shopping...

I'm always fascinated by the random things that catch my eye in retail stores. A shopping trip to my fave big-box retailer yesterday, was too good not to share. Here's a few things that creeped me out!
Henna I can understand, but placenta! Gee, I've always dreamt of that "I just washed by hair with afterbirth" look for my hair and now I can finally get it for the bargain price of $0.98! 
I confess, I sniffed socks at the store They still had the sticky wrapper on them, so hopefully I didn't inhale scaley bits of human toe jam. Who can resist the siren call of "Aromatherapy liners" aka - socks that might smell like old lady Avon potpourri till this first wear and wash. Who are these marketed to?  This sounds more like something you'd put in your underwear, not your shoes. And just who is going around sniffing people's feet to make scented footwear a necessity. Wash your feet and mind personal space! If someone asks to smell my foot they deserve the torment they get.

I think they spelled the name of these wrong. It's SATAN, not Santa. Now you too can have nightmares about your snack cakes. Send them to school with your kid so they can connect with fellow demon worshippers in a non-threatening way!  Last time I checked the jolly fat man had rosy cheeks, but didn't look like he'd been skinned. Let me guess....  you have "Star of David Brownies" for Hanukkah as well, they just happen to look more like a pentagram. Little Debbie, I'm disappointed and a bit creeped.

A very belated haunt season summary

 For the second year in a row, I worked as an actress at Forsaken Haunted House in Mentor, Ohio. It's my sanity-saving fun! This year I was also a makeup artist, and had the opportunity to represent the haunt on the Fee's Kompany morning show at Q104. Here are some photos from this year's fun and festivities.

exploding dog butts aren't fun...

Poor Gato, our 10 month old boxer lab mix was not feeling well last night. He gave my hubby some on-the-job parental training by exploding excrementorily on the faux wood kitchen floor. He then went on his merry way and proceeded to act like nothing was wrong. So what did the hubby do?  Continued to let him play in the house.

We've all had those days where we were sick and weren't quite sure if we could trust a fart. Well, with dogs, they don't know quite what to do when that happens, so they let'r rip!

You only get lucky to have poop on a hard surface once. Next bomb went off in our carpeted living room. Now we have a stinky carpet to shampoo, a frustrated/grossed out hubby and a dog who looks miserable and sad. (but at least now he's in his crate where we can contain the epidemic.)

Let's hope a day of no solid food, lots of water and some canned plain pumpkin do the trick!

Puppy dog tails

Remember my post about the dogs? I've decided the littlest one has a plan to take over the world by destroying one crate at a time.

But he looks all sweet and innocent while doing it!

See that shiny thing in the crate? That's an 'indestructible metal crate tray he bent in half and turned into a roof.
