I warmed up some baby back ribs yesterday for lunch. Normally, I would have saved them for dinner....but yesterday was special. By special Grandma J means she was ticked off a bit off kilter when she missed The News At Daybreak....then The Mid-Morning News...then the News At Noon.

All she wanted was a small window into what was happening around the world...instead she found out the whole friggin world stopped spinning was left with the official world-wide funeral marathon for Michael Jackson.

So Grandma J warmed up her ribs and pretended it was some kind of earth shattering event that she should pay attention to because she was sure there'd be a friggin week of Q & A, and it's not like Grandma J to be left out of the loop when it comes to current affairs. How's that for a sentence?

She set the mood, and blessed herself before digging in, because she is nothing if not respectful.

Within minutes Grandma J lost her appetite...she was devastated.


The Dow was dropping, and continued until the closing bell. So today? Please? Can I get some real news?

Now, check out the video of the cute kitty trying to fix a printer (below the posts). What can your kitty do?

I wish that it was all it took to keep me from eating!

Can you say Giggle Fest??

Enjoy fine cuisine at Chez Grandma J., where the cuisine is matched only by the ambiance. Enjoy candlelight dining on such delicacies as baby back ribs while relaxing in front of the TV.

Can I make a reservation? Can you sneak some b.b.ribs on the plane next week?

You just described me to a 't'...I skip the news just about everyday. I live in a constant state of not knowing what is going on past my front door. :)
I have one cat that loves/hates the printer. But what can my cats do? ANNOY THE POOP OUT OF ME!!!
Have I mentioned my cats are annoying?

if you tell me you got your ribs from Texas Roadhouse, I am going to cry. I love, love, love their ribs. They truly fall off the bone. Others attempt to capture this perfection of ribs but no one comes close.
OK, that is off of my back to eating my chicken salad. boring

Seriously, I was SO sick of the coverage. Seriously sick of it. And he was buried in a solid gold casket? WHAT in the world. Just a few years ago the whole world was HATING him because of him sleeping with children, and now, this? Crazy, I tell you. And boy, do those ribs look good.
