What the Hell Wednesday



In the words of Stacy and Elle:
Wednesdays are great for Wordless and Wordful posts, but we decided to go a different route and create our own Wednesday fun. We figured what the hell. That’s how we started What The Hell Wednesday. Who are we kidding? That’s pretty much how we decide on almost everything.
To play along, drop by and visit them at Blue Monkey Butt. There's a MckLinky and everything. (And they pretend they're not organized...)


This is my very first What the Hell Wednesday, and I was given the idea to join in and post because of dead lightbulbs. Two of them in our kitchen light fixture. The catch? They're those 'wonderful for the environment and your electricity bills' CFL bulbs that are supposed to last so much longer....There are three bulbs in this particular fixture. The standard bulb has been there the longest, and is still working. The two CFL bulbs have been there a few months, then up and died. I'll stick with the old, reliable ones, thank-you-very-much!

The Dairy Queen by my house is MOVING! No one checked with my family before making this momentous decision! The lady I overheard at the planning meeting at DQ today said, "It's only moving a half mile or so." Lady, I WALK to the Dairy Queen while either pushing a stroller or encouraging a toddler to walk alongside me. Have you tried that lately? I'm guessing she hasn't. The new location is also a ways down a busy road instead of the neighborhood I walk through now. I heard them throwing around April dates, but I also heard talk about a drive-thru and city approvals, so maybe it's for next year? A girl can hope...

And although I've covered it before, I'm sick to death of waiting for my heart procedure to be scheduled. Try living your life without looking more than a week out, because you have no idea if you'll be available. It's like my calendar ends this Friday. Very, very depressing. I don't even know who to direct this WTH to, since I actually like my cardiologist and feel he really is trying to move things along as quickly as possible...

we haven't had good luck with those bulbs either. Another myth they are trying to make us believe... why??? who knows. Sorry about your DQ and your planning :(

I've never had any trouble with my CFL bulbs. I've had most of them in the house for more years than I can remember.

I did learn recently that most of them are not supposed to be used in dimmer lights. I didn't realize that. Maybe that's the issue with yours?

Hopefully, you'll have better luck if you decide to give them another try.

Bummer about your Dairy Queen and procedure...

I'm not a big fan of the eco friendly bulbs either. Besides they are sooo dim, it's ridiculous. I'd be mad about the DQ too! I wish I could walk to a DQ, but they've closed all the one's near me. Sorry about your procedure, I hope they schedule it soon! Thanks for joining us this week!

I think I'm getting old or your print is getting smaller. I ended up getting close to the screen and I could see. I think it's I'm getting old.

Sorry to hear about the DQ big bummer! I have the same problem with the light bulbs. I think we were taken! You will be fine and feel better then ever once your procedure is done. See you tomorrow :)
