Kisses+Disses : Wedding Cake + CPS

L
et's get one thing clear: I don't ignore him. It's more like I don't hear him. Sometimes. JD diagnosed me with a selective hearing disorder and it drives him crazy. Please cut the tomatoes...I cut the onions. Don't forget to pack the toothbrush...I leave the toothbrush on the bathroom sink. They're running ten minutes late...why aren't they here yet?!

My disorder was magnified as we made our way to Santa Barbara for a wedding on Saturday. Check out the orange groves...I wonder what type of fruit is grown over there. I'm going to stop and get us something to eat...we should get something to eat because I'm starving. JD finally assessed I hear about 60% of what he says and it worries him because by the time we're 60, that figure will closer to 10%.

I reminded him I love bribes, so if I could work that figure up to 75%, I'd be more than happy to accept a new pair of shoes for my efforts. JD responded to my idea, but I can't remember what he said.

This leads me to another installment of Kisses and Disses...


This week's DISSES go to:
*Having Selective Hearing Disorder. Duh.
*Craving wedding cake...the smell of butter cream gets me every time.
*My singing voice. It brings JD to tears, and not in the good way.


This week's KISSES go to:
*Dallas Mavericks. Y'all know I'm a Lakers girl...I cheer for them and whoever is playing against Miami Heat.
*Canon Professional Services. In addition to camera/gear insurance, I also have CPS, which is awesome because while my lens got repaired, I was given a free loaner and a discount on its services.
*My polaroid camera. For capturing life's smallest moment that later prove to be the greatest.

Happy Monday!

Ira @ Chicago Home Improvement - Your singing voice brings JD into tears but not in a positive thing? lol I really laughed at that. I thought that he cried because your voice is angelic.   06.20.11 - 12:31am
ann @ wedding favors - LOL!I love this post because we are on the same boat. I'm into Lakers' Team, but in the finals I cheered for Dallas as well because the players are so terrific. And good thing that they were able to beat the HEAT. :)  06.17.11 - 6:19pm
Evonne & Darren - Hahaha... are we twins? I'm a Lakers girl AND I also have selective hearing! :) OK, I hope my other 1/2 doesn't read this comment but my selective hearing is probably only 40%! Not sure if I can even be bribed. The only way for me to get that number up is if Darren takes away my iPhone and iPad, but that would be very tragic! :)  06.16.11 - 6:28pm
Roger - Booooo on the Miami Heat "diss"!   06.16.11 - 10:45am
Ashley Terry - So well written--great comedic timing!  06.15.11 - 6:32pm
Nadya - hahahaha this is great! My husband always tells me i have selective hearing, and i know i do but i cant help it its hard to fight lol. I loove my little instax camera i use it more then my digital to capture personal moments!  06.15.11 - 12:20pm
Maryrose - YAY for the Mavs! Still sounds weird being a Laker girl myself. But anyone that beats Miami has a fan in me - temporary as it may be.  06.14.11 - 7:25pm
Felicia Williams - Mmmmm... buttercream! Have braved an outdoor south Texas wedding in July just because I knew who was making the cake. and knew it was going to be buttercream awesomeness!  06.14.11 - 5:31pm
Jane - I have you beat on the singing...my kids politely asked me to NOT sing lullabys to them - apparently my "twinkle twinkle little star" leaves a little to be desired  06.14.11 - 2:04pm
Carey Davis - Glad your 35 1.4 will be up and running for you!! My hubs is the selective listener here, and so are the kids. I fight a loosing battle.  06.14.11 - 7:17am
WeddingSnapper - I'll second that on the CPS - it's invaluable! Go Canon!  06.14.11 - 5:49am
Jeff Garban - Yay! I guess most girls are like that? No... But it's all good. We, guys, are here to L<3VE you no matter what :) Ohhh, and we are the same. I would cheer for anyone who is against Miami. The way they carry themselves is just childish & ignorant. No class at all :D  06.14.11 - 12:40am
Troy Woods - J* finally have to disagree with you on something :-). The Mavs deserved to win but not sure why everyone hates Lebron and the Heat. Can't really be about "the decision" can it? I've spent all day trying to figure out what was different between that and when an all american football player holds a huge news conference to announce what college he decided to go to... {now taking cover from all the incoming messages LOL}  06.13.11 - 6:06pm
Kellee - My boyfriend calls it selective hearing. I call it intense focus. It's his own fault for trying to talk to me when my favourite show is on TV!   06.13.11 - 6:02pm
Diana Lupu - Hmmm .... well I WAS your biggest fan till the Miami Heat comment...haha! What's with all the hating from the west coasters?! Jealousy is never befitting on anyone! ;) I'm still ur biggest fan btw.  06.13.11 - 4:53pm
Melinda "Miami Girl" Mergelsberg - Ohhhh there's always next year and the Lakers will be out just as fast! Let's Go HEAT!!!  06.13.11 - 2:56pm
Neda Lahrodi-Blake - Well my husband has selective hearing - I use it to my advantage these days...don't you remember honey you said it was fine ...(to get my new bag) hehehe   06.13.11 - 2:35pm
viktorija - I have selective hearing disorder too! And my hubby calls me on it as well. It's not that I don't hear him on purpose...I just don't hear him. ;)  06.13.11 - 2:20pm
Barbara Torres - Who do you get your camera/gear insurance from and how much is it?? Also what level of CPS do you have. Do you think it is worth it to go Platinum? Thanks, love your blog!!  06.13.11 - 1:37pm
Dana - Totally agree about the Mavs! I too am a Lakers girl that goes for anyone that plays against the self-professed dream team in Miami! ;) xo  06.13.11 - 1:07pm

Lydia - Ah, SHD. It's sooo annoying when people do that to me, so I'm really trying to get better at it. Just don't ask my sisters to grade me... ;-) Yay for insurance and CPS!  06.13.11 - 12:49pm
Erin Davenport - Laugh. Out. Loud. :)  06.13.11 - 12:38pm

Jordanne Fallon - I have this as well, especially the day of a wedding... I think its just because our minds are running a mile a minute... It's okay. You're not alone. My Name is Jordanne, and I have Selective Hearing...   06.13.11 - 12:15pm
k - I'm glad you can kiss on CPS. They shipped my camera body to someone else across the country and we had a big fight over getting it back in time. At least somewhere in the world, they're doing the right thing!  06.13.11 - 12:04pm

Catie Ronquillo - I think I suffer from selective hearing disorder too, but I told my husband that he MUMBLES, explaining why I don't hear him/hear him correctly. :) And YEAH! Go Dallas! The Mavs showed that heart and determination can win it all! :)  06.13.11 - 11:42am
Lizzie - First time ever that Lakers and Celtics fans can agree on something!! :) Sending high fives to you from Celtic city to Laker land.  06.13.11 - 11:40am
erica - You're a multi-tasker. That's why. I'm the same way. I have a hard time giving one detail my full attention, therefore I 'miss' some things...or bang the crap out of my head, knees, elbows, etc. Happy Monday Jasmine. :)  06.13.11 - 11:27am

Thanks for the laugh! And congrats on getting the lens fixed, my heart dropped as I read that post!  06.13.11 - 11:01am
