Happy Halloween

Well, here we are at last. The end of October and the end of Breast Cancer Awareness month. The final 'boo'b word(don't you love that boob has boo in it?) is candy-corn, in honor of Halloween.
Yes, someone actually used candy-corn to describe breasts. Ok, small and pointy I get. In fact, after a mammogram your boobs might well be flat like candy corn, but what about the three layers of color? Tri-colored breasts? Anyway, thanks for stopping by this month- I hope you all enjoyed the boob words and I hope you will continue to visit the breast cancer site and click for mammograms all year long.

Have a hauntingly good Halloween!

A Different Kind of Name Game

Women with large endowments have inspired many a nickname for their amplitudes. To be more specific, their bodacious ta-ta's have motivated many a gazer to declare their admiration by bestowing new and interesting names upon said masses. What I'm trying to say is today's boob word is zeppelins. Why is the boob word zeppelins? Because somebody, somewhere got an eyeful and the first thing that came to mind for comparison's sake was zeppelin. Thank you anonymous boob namer, wherever you are.

Just out of curiosity, how many of you read the title and thought, "Shirley, Shirley bo Birley, Bonana fanna fo Firley, Fee fy mo Mirley, Shirley!" No need to thank me for getting that song stuck in your head. The pleasure's mine!

A Lesson In Terminology

According to Merriam-Webster dictionary assets can be defined as:

1) the entire property of a person
2) advantage, resources
3) items of value

According to the Boobology dictionary assets can also be defined as (you guessed it!) boobs! What? You've never heard of the Boobology dictionary? Really??? I suppose you think I'm just making this up. I bet if you search hard enough you can find one on ebay. Let me know.

Ghoulies, Ghosties and Food With the Mosties...

As Halloween approaches I think it fitting that we pay homage to ghoulies, ghosties and things that go bump in the night. Oh, and boobs of course, also known as: cupcakes. These skeleton cupcakes look like a lot of fun don't they? Makes me want to create a batch of ghoulish fun myself....

Moon Inspiration

For many a century we have looked up into the night sky and wondered about our moon. Eventually, given time and scientific advances, we were able to fly to the moon, land there, and come back again. Just as a poet once looked to the moon and was inspired (Hey diddle, diddle, the cat and the fiddle. The cow jumped over the moon...) an astronaut once looked about the earth and was inspired, "Would you check out the nose-cones on that gal!" That's right, some astronaut, or astronaut wannabe gave us today's boob word! Inspiration is everywhere!!

As I sat down to write today I glanced out the window and saw this half-grown squirrel. The little sweetie was about 4 feet from my window. I had to move the blinds and get my camera right up against the glass to get a shot and I was sure that all the movement would scare it away. As you can see, my little friend was unfazed and stayed busy collecting and eating berries off the tree while my daughter and I watched.

A few minutes later I noticed my cats were watching intently as well. One was on the window sill and the other was perched on the desk behind my computer. I picked up the camera again to get a shot of them watching the squirrel. Just as I was about to get the shot I bumped something (ever so slightly) and both cats turned to look at me and then abandoned their posts. Figures. My little outdoor friend stayed busy scampering all over the tree for about an hour while my sloth-like kitties took a nap.

If you look at the picture where my bio is, at the bottom of this page, you can see the tree in it's June splendor. It gets so amazingly heavy with flowers and leaves in the summer that it fills the window view and you can't see through to the building (and windows) on the other side of it. In the summer I don't need blinds or curtains because no one across the way could possibly see through. There are still a few leaves up top but the branches are quite sparse now and the privacy is gone. Still, I can enjoy seeing birds, abandoned nests and this adorable squirrel.

Most of my boob words have came from a book, were found on the internet, or were suggested by someone. I thought today's word out to have something to do with squirrels but all I could think of was squirrly-girlies and that's just too stupid. So I'm back to the list I previously concocted for: bra-stuffers. Yep, that's the one I'm using today.

Some Names Are Obvious.....

To be more specific, some boob names are obvious. Today's boob word is one of those: babyfeeders. Very functional name. Just sticking to the facts, ma'am.

Fall Comfort Foods

I love Fall. The cool nights and mornings, the sunny afternoons, the gradual change in weather. I love the way the quality of light changes and the change of color in the landscaping as well, although here in northern Florida it doesn't come until much later than many parts of the country. Yes, I'm jealous of those of you in the cooler climates with all your color changes occurring while I wait...

This time of year my mind turns to comfort foods. You know, those warm and hearty soups, stews and one pot meals. This afternoon some cool rain came in and when I got home all I could think about was bread pudding. MMMMmmmmm. I have an old cookbook with a great recipe for a custard style bread pudding. I just put it in the oven. It's especially good warm from the oven but I'll eat it cold too - if there's any leftover! My older daughter enjoys it as well so bread pudding doesn't last too long here.

The other thing I was thinking about was my crock-pot. I can come home on my lunch breaks and put something on to cook and by the time we get home in the evenings dinner is ready. Beef stew, chicken, chili, sloppy-joes. MMmmmm. Nothing beats coming in the door to the aroma of a delicious meal that's ready to eat - especially when the girls have just finished soccer practice and are ready to eat now.

Fall is also the time to gather the pecans that fall from the trees. For the past few years my younger daughter has brought home a few each day from the playground at school. It's become a tradition to save them for a Thanksgiving pie. In honor of fall, the coming holidays and nuts in general, today's boob word is: chestnuts. You know, roasting. On an open fire. Yeah.

Define That Please

Let's consider the possible definitions of today's boob word: shakers.

Salt and pepper? Well, certainly there are lots of interesting looking sets of shakers.

Religious sect? There are those who would consider breasts a religious experience.

Cocktail shakers? This definition explores the notion of breasts as intoxicants.

Maracas? They're fun! They're exciting! Shake-a, shake-a...yeah, maracas it is:

I Like Them All

Ah, dumplings! It's easy to see how someone came up with today's boob word. Dumplings are comfort food and they come in a nice variety: Eastern style pot-stickers (steamed or fried), Southern style with chicken, or Western style with beef stew. Is there a Northern variety? What's your preference?

A Rose by Any Other Name....

We've all heard hooters, knockers and jugs,
yet be they real or fake,
when it comes to naming boobs,
nipple caddies takes the cake!

Look Into My Eyes...

What you see here are a pair of hypnotizers, the boob word of the day! I don't think I could find a better example of this word if I searched the world over!

Cat Smackage

I'd like to tell you about what happened in my bed this morning. What? Too much information? Trust me, it wasn't THAT exciting. Not really exciting at all. Just warm and fuzzy. Literally. About 4 or 5 every morning Rafik jumps up on the bed and snuggles up by my shoulder. If I move she will usually go to the foot of the bed. This morning she wasn't content with just curling up, she forcibly wedged herself under my arm and curled up into a purring ball of fuzz. A short time later I rolled to my other side and apparently that didn't suit her, so she climbed over me and forced her way under my arm to regain her sleep position. Do I need to tell you how hard it is to get up when a warm, fur-baby is snuggled up to you? A warm, purring fur-baby?? I'm in bad trouble when the mornings get colder....

I suppose this story isn't particularly amazing except that I've never had a pet forcibly snuggle like that. Finko (the older cat) just sleeps at the foot of the bed if she jumps up there at all. There's a perfectly good reason that Finko doesn't bother me much when I'm sleeping. It has to do with when she was about 6 months old. Once,in the wee hours of the night, she decided to attack my leg. Once. I sat straight up from a deep sleep, arms flailing madly to stop the attack. My arm movements resulted in the involuntary flight of the cat through the air.... Now, I am not normally cruel to animals, but basic instinct says that when razors are slashing you, you should put a stop to it immediately. Hence the cat smack. When I recovered from my wee-hour-slashing-shock I felt bad and went after Finko to be sure she wasn't hurt. No harm done and I'm happy to say we remain on friendly terms to this day.

If you're wondering what this story has to do with the boob word of the day, wookies, the answer is: nothing. I don't even know why someone would call breasts wookies...I mean, a wookie is a large, furry Star Wars character. I've never seen large, furry breasts (well, man-boobs maybe...) so I guess whoever made up that name has some 'splainin' to do.

Oh Boy

For your amusement and speculation I give you the boob word of the day: bouys. Think large flotation devices...not what I would wish on anyone! Who comes up with these names anyhow? I suppose we could credit this one to a lifeguard or a boater?

She's Flat .....

Once upon a time, when I was a young, developing girl, I had a doll that led to an unfortunate nickname. The doll of which I speak was known as a Flatsy doll. I still remember the jingle and words from the ad, "Flatsy, Flatsy, she's flat and that's that!"

Now, through the power of the interwebs(JapaneseSweetShop at flickr), I bring you Flatsy:

When I was looking for a picture of Flatsy I discovered that there is a company called Schylling that is selling Flatsy dolls again. Will my shame never end???!! Ok. I'm not flat anymore so the taunts can't hurt me now, right? Anyway, this whole thing came up thanks to one of my older sisters. She felt it her duty to remind me of a similar nickname from around the same time period. That nickname was Flatbush. Yeah, read it and laugh. Go ahead, I can take it. I am no longer a flatsy or a flatbush, although I sometimes wish I were. Really. No bras, no bounce when running, no toll of gravity - none of the bothersome aspects of the mighty rib cushions.

That's right, today's boob word is: rib cushions. What young child doesn't enjoy the soft, pillowy effect of a mother's rib cushions? Poor Flatsy, she had none.

One Points to Heaven, One Points to Hell...

Well, well. What can we say about the pointer sisters, today's boob word? Pointers come in a wide variety and I'm sure you've seen them all:

pointed straight ahead
one pointed up, one pointed down
pointing east and west
both pointed up
both pointed down

I don't think I've ever seen two pointed to the center like crossed eyes but maybe you have?

Halloween Hazard Warning

As Halloween approaches I would like to remind everyone to take the necessary precautions regarding your decorations. Specifically your carved pumpkins. Many people are not aware that you should NEVER leave alcohol near pumpkins! I received this timely warning in an email and I would be remiss if I did not pass it along to you:

Clearly alcohol and pumpkins don't mix. I have to wonder if this is the result of a pumpkin carving party. You know - some folks got together to carve and talk and have a few drinks. Eventually the topic of drunken pumpkins came up which led to the carving of drunken pumpkins and the inevitable pukin' punkin'. Makes sense to me.... I can also tell you that I would not want to come across this particular scene after having too much to drink. I think this would send me right over the edge. Anyhow, major props to the carver/designer of this Halloween scene - you're my kind of person!!

Without further ado,and in honor of our Jack O'Lantern friends I declare today's boob word to be: pumpkins! What a surprise, right?

How About a Free Handbag?

On October 15, 2008, will be giving away a free handbag every hour for 24 hours. Go and sign up (first name and an email address) for a chance to win your pick of 24 fashionable bags. It was hard to pick a favorite but I finally went for #11. Wish me luck! Now if I could just win some money to put in it...

Speaking of money, I found two Susan B. Anthony dollar coins in a public bathroom recently...kind of odd don't you think? Who carries those things around, let alone leave them sitting out in a bathroom? Yes, I washed them off...

Twice in my life I've found $20.00 on the ground with no one around to claim it. Once (back in my 20's) I lost $200.00 on a grocery shopping trip. When I realized I'd lost the money I returned to the store and was shocked to find it had been turned in by a bag-boy. I almost didn't go in to ask after it, assuming no-one would have turned in such a find. The bag-boy's honesty earned him a twenty dollar tip.

Now, on to today's boob word: gumdrops. I think what we're talking about here is the small yet sweet boobage amongst us. Let's hear it for gumdrops!

Fire When Ready

Boob word of the day: Torpedoes.

How about these old school cone bras? These babies were made to contain and display torpedo boobs in all their splendor! A true classic. Much better seen than actually worn, I'm sure. You know, in the 'olden days' women used to faint more- is it any wonder?

Saturday, October 11, 2008

Frosty Flavors

Grape? Cherry? Blueberry? What about lemon-lime or pina colada? How do you like your boob word of the day: Snowcones? Ok, now I do enjoy snowcones, but seriously,as a descriptive word for female anatomy I'm not so sure. The term conjures images of cold, pointy breasts! Not good!! What say you, people of the interwebs??

Porkarito Pirate

Once upon a time a girl of about 4 years of age went on a trip, and for a souvenir she brought home a pirate treasure map along with a pirate and his chest. Since this girl was only 4 she had trouble pronouncing certain words. When the girl named her pirate she mispronounced Puerto Rico (from whence she decided pirates came) and called him Porkarito Pirate. Thus began the illustrious adventures of Porkarito Pirate and his multitude of pirate friends, sailing ships and other piratey playthings.

That 4 year old girl is now 12 and not too long ago, on a boring summer day, she came across a bunch of magnets and got busy. The air-conditioner intake is in our hallway and provides a nice flat, metal surface that was perfect for her creative inspiration. What she created was something akin to a village of cliff-dwelling pirates, which is what you see here on this series of platforms supported by magnets. Moving from top to bottom (along the 'stepping stone' magnets) we have:

A pirate roasting a fish over a campfire; a viking pirate and his keg with a tropical drink on it; a pirate with a carafe and some potted flowers;(who knew pirates are into flowers?) a platform piled with booty; and a tiki statue with a dog sitting next to it - this is the 'grand entry'. Apparently cliff dwelling pirates like a grand entry.

What you don't see is the series of ships and pirates down on the hallway floor. Many an ocean full of island villages have been built here, complete with markets for food and animals in pens. Porkarito Pirate has been a great creative inspiration. Which leads us to this monkey.

So what has this monkey got to do with anything? Well, a couple years ago I redecorated the girls bathroom. The shower curtain has a rich, maroon/gold paisley pattern, the towels are in maroon and gold and the wall decor includes a carved wooden panel - sort of a Morrocan feeling. My daughter's describe the style as Porkaritan Splendor. But our splendorous bathroom was lacking for something and one day I found just the thing: this monkey. I brought him home, put him on this shelf, and he became known as The Porkaritan Splendor Monkey. Ever since then the entire bathroom is now referred to as The Porkaritan Splendor Bath. Who would have thought that a few dollars worth of plastic pirate stuff would create such a lasting legacy?

By the way, the boob word of the day is: headlights. Are yours high beams or low beams? I wonder what it means to have halogen? And what about fog lights? Are foglights an extra, smaller set?

D - Dang!

DD - Double dang!!

E - Enormous

Altoids for Babies

What's that you say? Altoids for babies? A curiously strong mint for babies? Well, sort see the boob word of the day is: Lactoids. So I had to wonder to myself, just what is a lactoid? A milky mint? A mint to make you lactate? A baby mint? Something to do with asteroids, like giant balls of milk streaking across the night sky? Ok, so breasts that are as big as asteroids - maybe that's it. When you're a nursing mother (some of you will have to take my word for this) you sometimes feel as if your breasts are that large. Admittedly more than a little strange regardless of which answer you pick. Perhaps you have an idea of your own. Let me know!

Here's a test I found that I thought you might enjoy. But first, the boob word of the day: sweater puppets. Your puppets can have strings (regular bra) or no strings attached (strapless bra). I don't know who came up with that term but it is certainly an entertaining one.

Now, this test only takes a couple minutes and it's easy...enjoy!

Take The Perception Personality Image Test

Your result for The Perception Personality Image Test...

HBPS - The Optimist

Humanity, Background, Big Picture, and Shape

You perceive the world with particular attention to humanity. You focus on the hidden treasures of life (the background) and how that fits into the larger picture. You are also particularly drawn towards the shapes around you. Because of the value you place on humanity, you tend to seek out other people and get energized by being around others. You like to ponder ideas and imagine the many possibilities of your life without worrying about the details or specifics. You are in tune with all that is around you and understand your life as part of a larger whole. You prefer a structured environment within which to live and you like things to be predictable.

Two Bits, Four Bits, Six Bits a Dollar...

...all for Ta Ta's stand up and holler!!!!

Today's boob word is pom-poms. Let's give a cheer for pom-poms! Pom-poms are something we can cheer with and about.

Let's also consider this smaller sort of pom-pom...the little fuzzy ones in the craft stores used to make and decorate all kinds of things. Craft pom-poms are soft, fluffy, rounded, fun to play with, decorative, they come in many colors and many sizes. Yeah, pom-poms is a good description of the mammaries.

Get out there today and cheer or be crafty with your pom-poms...or both...

And the Word Is....

Ant Bites If Ant Bites doesn't work for you, try Ant Bits...that was the typo I just made while trying to post. Bits works as well as bites I think. Either way you get that impression of smallness. Well, with bites you also get a vague feeling of pain or discomfort, whereas with bits you get...well...grossness, actually. I mean, who wants to think about bits of ants? On their chest no less??! Not being one for bits of ants on my chest I guess I will go with bites. So, Ant Bites is the boob word for today. Makes you so glad you stopped by doesn't it?

Here Comes That Word of the Day...

Some things are obvious. Like nicknames. Nicknames for boobs, such as Double Trouble. Now really, though...are they trouble? I guess they can be.

Sometimes boobs are trouble to the owner: too big, show-through, lactation leakage.

Sometimes they're more trouble to the observer: walking into something while staring at boobs, getting chewed out for looking at them while talking to the owner, touching without permission. Definitely trouble.

Mostly though, they are not much trouble: they don't talk back, pass gass or make embarrassing noises. What a relief, eh?

Have a good Saturday, and don't forget to click (that button, over there, on the left). Hey! Look at my eyes when I'm talking to you!

October Blog-O-Scope

The boob word of the day is: Heavenly Canteens. Sounds like something a narrator at a planetarium would point out, "This constellation is known as The Heavenly Canteens, from whence the Milky Way was spilled."


It's a little known fact, (very little known) that each sign of the zodiac is inextricably (and inexplicably) linked with a particular type of donut. Since ancient times, man and woman have ventured out into the autumn night, gazed up to the heaven's and felt an overwhelming desire to eat donuts. The autumn harvest created a desire for deep-fat-fried puffs of yumminess. I'm not afraid to share this esoteric information with you, as it's all for the betterment of society! In these modern times we don't all go out and harvest but we do still share the cosmic hunger for donuts that our ancestors felt. "But," you say, "I hate donuts!" That's ok! You can always give your donut to someone else. The karmic repercussions are immeasurable!!

Aries The Ram: A raised donut, rolled in granulated sugar tickles your palate. Two tickle twice as much! For extra excitement make it cinnamon sugar, you wild thing! Karmic Points for sharing with cancer.

Taurus The Bull: There's nothing more comforting than a nice gingerbread donut. You might try an even dozen (six for each of your horns). Karmic Points for sharing with Leo.

Gemini The Twins: You don't mind a bit of mess, which is why the classic powdered sugar donut is for you. Go ahead and lick your fingers - live a little! Karmic Points for sharing with Virgo.

Cancer The Crab: A jelly donut brings out the true crab in you: crusty on the outside, all gooey on the inside! Karmic Points for sharing with Libra.

Leo The Lion: Who knew you were so demanding when it comes to donuts? Only an apple-crumb donut will satisfy your jungle hunger. Karmic Points for sharing with Scorpio.

Virgo The Virgin: You like a donut you can sink your teeth into: the cake donut. That's right, keep it simple. Dip it in your coffee for that extra mmmmm factor. Karmic Points for sharing with Sagittarius.

Libra The Scales: Full of surprises, yes you are. Boston creme on the inside, chocolate glaze up top. No hole for you! Karmic Points for sharing with Capricorn.

Scorpio The Scorpion: It comes as no surprise that strawberry frosted suits you just fine. Well, no surprise to anyone but you... Karmic Points for sharing with Aquarius.

Sagittarius The Archer: Picture the lovely raised donut, replete with glaze, and you will see your soul's satisfaction! Karmic Points for sharing with Pisces.

Capricorn The Sea goat: Well aren't you the fussy one, you and your french cruller! Crinkly and sweet...ooh la la. Karmic Points for sharing with Aries.

Aquarius The Water Bearer: Nothing awakens your appetite like a maple frosted donut. Keep one near your alarm clock for waking incentive! Karmic Points for sharing with Taurus.

Pisces The Fish: Close your eyes and breathe in the joy that is the classic chocolate frosted, the tuxedo of donuts. Now this is living! Karmic Points for sharing with Gemini.

Go on to the bakery now and satisfy your donut destiny...and don't forget a napkin! Oh, and Double Karmic Points for sharing with Significant Snail!!

Jean-Guy Supports Ta-Ta's

This is my beloved Jean-Guy, frog extraordinaire! Jean-Guy (yes, he's a French frog) is so in touch with his manliness that he has no problem posing in a bra - all for the sake of promoting breast cancer awareness. Give it up for Jean-Guy!

Today's Toaday's boob word of the day is Apples, or as Jean-Guy would say, "Les pommes."

How very suitable, since Jean-Guy is the apple of my eye!
