Wednesday Word of the Week

This weeks edition of the Word of the Week is......


de-lu-sion (dih-loo-zhuhn)

1. an act or instance of deluding
2. the state of being deluded
3. a false belief or opinion : delusions of grandeur (this one is my favorites)
4. Psychiatry - a fixed false belief that is resistant to reason or confrontation with actual fact
5. a false belief strongly held in spite of invalidating evidence (another favorite of mine)

My belief that Spring will arrive - just as the Groundhog said makes me think I must be delusional.

My belief that someday a dandlylion will pop up on my lawn - pushing its way up through 3 feet of snow and ice that I believe will never leave - makes me think I am delusional.  Kim at My Field of Dreams has a dandylion and gosh-darn-it I WANT ONE TOO.   Spring in California......Whatever!  LOL

To the paper boy who this morning was too friggin lazy to extend his arm a few inches to get my newspaper within reaching distance of the front door - If you think you are getting a tip this week - YOU are delusional.

And to the local Moron who yesterday thought it was a good idea to rob one of our banks - Hahaha  Did you get delusions of grandeur while watching Oceans Eleven on TV last weekend?  IDIOT

And speaking of delusional......
In case you can't read the caption, it says   "They're not staring at you because they think you're hot"

Nuff said on that!


  1. OMG that picture made me laugh out loud. I feel bad for the lady, but delusional is the right word. Unfortunately.

    How fitting-- word verification was "ingrate"!

  2. That's a big Whale Tail, LOL too much information.

  3. Wow, is there no shame anymore??? I think that caption is great. I don't think you are delusional. Just a person buried under snow. Just think, when you are having spring, It will be hotter than Hades here. I will have to turn on the air conditioner for the next 8 months!!! Ur G then I might come to your house for a visit. :)

  4. Oh Kim, I think your motto must be "leave 'em laughing" - the picture is a hoot! Thanks for my daily laugh.

  5. Crackin' me up! No pun intended... lol!

  6. Thank you for the great laugh today!! Boy, I needed that! I love tuning into your blog world. Makes me lighter every time I visit!
    Have a good one!

  7. Oh my word. Made my day to see that picture. I need a good laugh today. Thank you!

  8. That is one awful picture. If she can go out in public looking like that, then she is probably too stupid to realize that people are not staring at her because she's hot.

  9. OMG Kim that is......well...I don't have a word for that picture, except maybe, unbelievable! How does anyone go out in public like that!!!

  10. Well Kim, I guess I am delusional too. About Spring. I had two flies on the porch door today. I walked the "tiny ten" in shorts. CH and I had wine time under the Oaks. I got my hair cut today and let it dry outside in the breeze.

    The picture pretty much leaves me speechless :)

  11. Kim, lets face it we will not be seeing dandelions anytime soon but the good news is the snow has finally melted off my roof!

  12. I am delusional myself about some things - but not that! sandie

  13. Kim ~
    I like living in my little delusional world, but puleeze!!! Doesn't she own a mirror or have at least one friend to tell her to cover up?
    Thanks for making me LOL!
    Hugs :)

  14. OMIGOSH, KIM....LOL, LOL, LOL!!!!

  15. I can always count on you to give me a laugh.
    have a great night

  16. Kim,
    ..................... words escape me here! Although delusional does seem to describe the indescribable! LOL!

  17. Kim, Hi! I thought I would just pop over from Whispering Pines to say thanks for being a follower. Your blog is so fun to read! I don't do rug hooking, although we have a really great shop here that gives classes...hmmmm, I love going there because it's also an antique shop, maybe I need a new hobby?! Plus, you have a great sense of humor and also you seem to be hoping spring will be here as badly as I am! I'll follow and be back!

  18. Hey, Kim, it's been ABOVE freezing here for a few days! I'm hoping the warmer air makes it up your way!!!No dandelions yet, but the snow is mostly gone from the yard.
    Delusional had me laughing so hard! Where do you find that great stuff???

  19. Oh my Kim, really? I wonder if she's delusional in thinking she looks nice? Some people are like that, you know...but certainly NOT me!
    thanks for visiting my blog today :)

  20. Kim, I don't know how you do it but you did it again. That delusional picture is right up there along Maggie, Grandma Yello Hair pictures of walMart shoppers from a previous post. Too funny.

    Keep them coming, it makes waiting for spring so much more bearble.

    Wishing you some signs of spring other than floods. JB

  21. I believe in and endorse your delusion!

  22. Yep...made ME think of Gramma Yellow Hair too! So funny. Those Wal- Mart e-mails are just like! But hey, there IS good news...I'm lookin' out my wiondow and the snow is actually melting!! Spring IS coming! Might take another 6 weeks...but it is coming...we had a really warm day yesterday. What a great breather!!!

  23. Sorry I'm late. . . I too took a couple of days off to get caught up at home. Those relentless dust bunnies were making me loopy and I knew I needed to spend some time obliterating them! But, I was delusional in thinking that I would stay on track cleaning - the hook and wool were calling. Now I will just spend the day groping through the wooly worms. And the dusting. . . .

  24. I know a few people whose picture should be in the dictionary looking up that word! Haha the picture cracked me up :). Cassie
