Guns 'N' Soccer

You guys crack me up with your comments! Half of you don't even want to be my blogging buddy anymore because, well, I look too young. I'll tell you a secret so you'll want to be my friend again... I have lots of new hair coming in and it's not grey. Oh no, it just couldn't be grey, it's SHINY WHITE! and there's a lot of it and and I even found grey eyebrow hairs, so there. What irritated me about Saturday and the security guard was not so much of both of them thinking I was a teenager, it's the whole psychology behind it. It's really hard to be taken seriously. If you saw me in person you'd think, 'What's that little pipsqueak talking about cooking? She can't even reach the stove, let alone cook....' That's why I love the internet, it puts everyone on equal footing and looking young makes for a funny story to write about.

Before I announce the winners for snacks and drinks, I wanted to tell you about Goat's soccer practice yesterday.

Goat has her practice in what many would consider a nice part of town. Her practice is in a park in a subdivision called Spanos West. Whatever... all the houses look the same, very Stepford-ish. I hate it, mostly because people think they can go to these subdivisions and think they are beyond any crime affecting their area. Hmph. Sorry Charlie, crime is everywhere. Duh. Enough of the tirade. Anyways... this guy and what looked to be his son come screeching up to the park in his Suburban and goes running barefoot after some teenagers. Very close to our soccer practice, words were exchanged and some holding back of bodies. By this time, I tell Goat come sit behind me. Coach is telling her to come back out to practice and I shake my head no. The guy and one of the teenagers shake hands and dude walks away to his car, where he then pulls out something from his car and sticks it in his waistband and starts walking back to the teenagers. Great. That's when I tell Nancy and the girls at practice to get into a car duck down and stay there. Just what you want to tell a bunch of ten and eleven year old girls. Needless to say soccer practice was canceled. No one was shot, nary a punch was thrown, and the cops never came. Fun times. That was my day, and you?

Let's move on to something a bit more fun, shall we? Announcing the winners of the snacks and drinks portion of Puppet Master.

There was a tie for snacks so I will be making both and I even have a plan. The day the kids have to make their own dinner, The Man and I will be having cocktails and snacks while the sous chef make their own meal that you picked for them. Awesome.

The Winners for Snacks were...

The Yummy Mummy... and her black bean dip. I think Kim planned this. She's been threatening me for a while about blackmailing me, so I know she's rubbing her hands in glee that she gets to control what I eat. Kim, you do know I'll get you back, right? and please don't sent some of those nasty ass fake tortillas my way either or there might be a foodie blog war, I don't care how much that diet is working for sexy Aussie Hubby.

The Noble Pig... Cathy posted this recipe for Shrimp Rockefeller on her blog. I left this comment for her...

Oh please let this win for my contest... wait, you didn't enter these. I'm begging you to enter these ones too. I might just have to enter them myself, if you don't, and totally break the rules, then chaos will rule the world and it will set a bad example for my kids and they will think they can break the rules because mom did and then they will lead a life of crime just because you didn't enter these mushrooms. We can't have that, can we? Please save my kids from a life of crime...

Cathy is a potato ho with a heart of gold. She didn't want to see my kids get mixed up in a life of crime, so she entered these and they won! If my kids get into Stanford and Berkeley and Georgia Tech, and go on to kill cancer and bring about world peace, it will be because of Cathy. Thanks, being a puppet master can bring about good. Do you hear that, Kim? We use our puppet master abilities for good, not blackmail or evil.

Onward we go to the drinks winner. Rebecca from Foodie With Family must be an overachiever, she's like Mary Lou Retton or something. She made a clean sweep of this competition, winning both the kids and adult drinks. The sous chefs will be sipping on mint and limeade slushies, while Rich and I have Mojito Slushies.

Okay, my first three puppet-masters, please email me your recipe at evilchefmom @ aol. com so I can get my grocery list ready. Except Cathy because I have yours all printed out.

Remember you have until tomorrow to submit your ideas for main courses. Come join in on our little social experiment. Haven't you ever wanted to exert your power? Here's your chance.

Yikes! That's one heckuva extra-curricular lesson.

I'm glad nothing happened and that you are all safe.

I think I'd be suiting my kids up in kevlar every practice after that!

What a great thing to have happen at soccer practice. :( Glad you and Nancy and her friends are fine though.

I am so glad about the shrimp Rockefeller. I told Cathy to submit them as well cause I wanted to see how you and the family liked them. Can't wait to try them myself.

I want a mint limeade slushie!

Shiny white hair? Thank God! I really didn't want to hate you.

P.S. Please tell me at least one of those shiny white hairs is on your chin!

Mental P Mama said...

Whit eyebrow hairs, too? Even I don't have those. Ha Ha Ha. Seriously, so glad you were all safe after the nutjob in the park.

Congrats to the winners!! I'm really looking forward to seeing a photograph, possibly?, of the whole ECM houshold with all your slushies in hand. I'd like to see who is toasting is who is toppling over. ;)

That's scary about that altercation between those guys. That's too close for comfort there, especially with all those kids around. I've been in a few close calls myself and it's scary. I'm much more aware of my surroundings after those incidents.

i've seen my share of hunting rifles and shotguns, but i've never seen a pistol. i certainly won't mind if i never see one. i'm glad everyone's okay! as my grandma would say, "what's this world coming to?"

Kristin said...

Oh man. Lots of bad memories that brought back of gunshots outside my apartment in Phoenix and the ghetto bird (the police helicopter) shining its spotlight in my window almost every night. Thank God I don't live there anymore.

KitchenKiki said...

hmmm guns, that sounds too much like my neighborhood. I once found a gun in my bushes. I don't want to know what it was used for.

Enjoy your dinner! One of these days I'll get the mango thing on my blog. Really.
