Debbie Drabs

Apologies if that's your real name.  I had a boyfriend named Bobby Boring, so it could be worse.

I'm friendsick.  Say something a friend would say.  Unless you're a friend, then say something like you would say.

And, someone needs to tell me what a Cajun oven is.

Hey, girlfriend! Great to see you post today. Hang in there, get out and smile at the day and know that I'm thinking about you!

(How's that for something a friend would say?) :)

Steve said...

Picture yourself in a forest. Next to you is a calming stream. Now picture my X standing next to you. Now picture yourself holding my X's head under water. There, doesn't that make you feel relaxed. I sure feel that way now.

I'm pretty sure a Cajun oven is nothing like a Dutch oven, but I can't be sure.

Maggie said...

LOVE YOU!!!

XOXOXOXO

The Good Luck Duck said...

Yellow Rose, that's perfect.

Steve, you're a funny man. Here's a cat. I sort of hope the Cajun oven is the same thing, except that Nellie wants to cook a 'gator in one, so that makes me hope it isn't.

Maggie, THANKS! Love you, too.

I hope this will make you laugh, it always does the trick for me!

Cajun Oven


Cyndi & Stumpy @ RVly Ever After

The Good Luck Duck said...

Haha, Stumpy (Cyndi must be out this morning)! I have to remember that site. Luckily, it brought up exactly the same page as I did when I manually Googled "Cajun oven." Unluckily, I still don't know what it is.

Elaine said...

I know what a cajun microwave is, maybe the same thing? It is a wooden structure that holds an entire pig which is then lowered into a hole with hot coals for cooking.

Go jump in that swimming pool and see how long you can hold your breathe under water. Just before your lungs burst, stand up and gulp in a big breathe of fresh air. It's sure to make you feel better. :)

jillbertini said...

Oh dear. That doesn't sound so good :(. Looks like you have funnier friends than me to entertain you, though. Or maybe I just need to ramp up. I'm still waking up, and it's dark as twilight outside at the moment. I'm operating at half-charge right now :p.

¡Vizcacha! said...

Elaine, that might be it! Big enough for a 'gator??

Judy, I think you may be onto something!

Au contraire, mon ami! Besides, you don't have to always be funny to be my friend! Thanks for commenting! Mmwah!

Levonne said...

I understand. The first year that John and I were on the road, I was friendship lots. I wondered if the RV life was for me at time. And now, I love and cherish my me-time so much and I love the network that I've developed through my blog and emailing that life feels really great. Hang in there.

¡Vizcacha! said...

Thanks, Levonne. I'm glad to hear that you experienced this, and pulled through it.

Sherry said...

Well come on out here to mosquito infested Utah Lake and hook up with me. I won't keep you very entertained since I'm not very entertaining but I'm excellent at friending. I have references.

¡Vizcacha! said...

Aw, Sherry, that sounds wonderful. I don't require entertaining at all, really. I'll bring the beer and the DEET.

squawmama said...

Ok... pretty much everyone has said something really nice... I'm saying get out and play!!!
Have fun
Donna

¡Vizcacha! said...

Will do, Donna!

Carolyn said...

wehul... let's laugh ... exactly at 10:30 central time zone... let's read this together and laugh and laugh....

The Dot l
FINALLY, SOMEONE HAS CLEARED THIS UP.

For centuries, Hindu women have worn a dot on their foreheads. Most of us have naively thought this was connected with tradition or religion, but the Indian
embassy in Ottawa has recently revealed the true story.

When a Hindu woman gets married, she brings a dowry into the union. On her wedding night, the husband scratches off the dot to see whether he has won a convenience store, a gas station, a donut shop, a taxi cab, or a motel in the
United States.

If nothing is there, he must remain in India to answer telephones and provide us with technical advice.

DAMN! That Elaine beat me to it! She's got some agile typing fingers. Do you gals FB? We can be stalking each other all over the internet! If so, find me...Nellie Tate.

Something a friend would say...pull your head outta your ass before I give you the smackdown. Oops, maybe that's why I don't have many real live in person friends :)

ThE MidLiFe CrUiSeR said...

And, FYI...I'm depressed EVERY TIME we switch spots. I get lonesome for human contact...other than Jonathan & the flea bag. Sometimes, I join a gym for a week or month & recently I discovered yoga. Forcing myself to get out of the tin can...sometimes Jonathan does the pushing me out the door. I'm determined to find a way to appreciate new situations, and love what is instead of wishing I was somewhere else...especially when the weather sucks...hello Oregon! My blog only gets the best of me...I'm sure that's true of most of us. Whew, I got to unload on ya! If you try to send me a bill, you won't find me...I'm SOOOOO behind on my blog!

¡Vizcacha! said...

Nellie, you can be my ToughLove friend. Shut up! Quit whining! Grow a pair! Thanks! I'm comforted and wisened all at the same time.

Yeah, we FB hard. It's a good thing I don't spill my guts here, because my guts are all full of self-pity and poop, so I filter out the self-pity. #2 Melitta coffee filters do the job. GET IT? #2! Job!

Carolyn, I was accidentally watching Salt and not laughing at 10:30 PM. I don't really care for Angelina Jolie, but I was impressed to learn that she does her own stunts.

Carolyn said...

too bad... I had a fine time... but since I was laughing so hard and wanted more ...

I tuned in to the Tonight Show after I saw Don Rickles and Bristol Palin were going to be on...

I wish I could say something clever about this pairing but words fail me ...

¡Vizcacha! said...

1) Don Rickles is still alive?

2) I think the link is "hockey" somehow. Work with that.

LG61820 said...

OK, I'm not really friend material because friends seem to want something from me: a listening ear, words of comfort, company on an outing - it can become exhausting! I need a friend who can wait quietly until I need something and then provide it. Maybe you could be a good friend to me!

Here's all I've got for you- be friendsick all you want but just remember that others of us are stuck looking at computer screens all day long in windowless cubicles. Screens that are actually WORK RELATED! Would you rather be doing that with friends bothering you every night after boring WORK all day??? I didn't think so.

You're welcome.

Your virtual friend-like acquaintance

LG

¡Vizcacha! said...

LG, you do put it into perspective - thanks!

trailercamper said...

I am not a friend but I would say that any day in the RV would be better than what I have to do every day....WORK...SMILE it could be worse...
Dutch oven, Cajun oven....pretty much the same thing....really good for making fryed chicken if you don't have a deep fryer...

The Good Luck Duck said...

TC, you're saying I could be mopey AND at work. Point taken!

ain't for city gals said...

I don't think I have any social graces left but you are welcome to come sit on our front porch ..and we don't have mosquitoes!..(SP?)...lol..

¡Vizcacha! said...

I'm not sure I have many left myself, so if the offer still stands, I'll come scratch and burp on your porch - thanks!

Soaring Sun said...

Roxanne, I think it's wonderful so many people are responsive when you say you're friendsick. Wow, you have lots of friends!

I also sometimes feel a loss of connection, particularly with friends I left behind in places I used to live. I'm finding a lot of comfort in writing them letters. Remember those? Pen and paper, envelopes, stamps, the whole shebang. They still sell that stuff.

I feel really solidly connected to anyone to whom I will sit down and write an actual letter, and the people who get my letters appreciate them and know that we are truly friends. Blogs and FB and email are good, but letters are a real commitment to friendship.

¡Vizcacha! said...

Sue, that's a fabulous idea. I even own some of that paper stuff - pink, I think. I used to find a lot of satisfaction in writing letters; it may be time to re-find it. Thanks for that!

Laura said...

My friends would say "Can I borrow $20?" Ineed new friends.

¡Vizcacha! said...

Ha Laura! You amuse me out loud all the time.

"And, someone needs to tell me what a Cajun oven is."

I.M. a little late a comin' to this here party, but it are really simple. When y'all buys poultry to cook, assumin' that are somethin' ducks do, they is sometimes labeled, cage free, and they gets a lot of money fer that kind of poultry.

Bein's as they's so used to runnin' wild it are hard to get them to stay in the oven when yer a cookin' 'em. That are where the Cagun oven comes into play, it bein' a cage and all they can'ts git out till they is done. I.M. happy that cousin Louie Pierre who lives down in Loosianna were able to send this so's I.M. could pass it on.

¡Vizcacha! said...

I.M., you are a font of knowledge, which is also called Comic Sans.
