Hubby's In Hospital And Keeping Promises

Some of you may know that Hubby underwent spinal surgery in May of last year. Yesterday mid-morning he was admitted to hospital via the ER. As of the writing of this post, I do not know what today or tomorrow will bring. Undoubtedly I will be gone for part of today. If I do not get to your page today, please be patient and take no offense.

However, I made a promise to several bloggers about today's post and I'm going to keep that promise. And besides that I can't feckin' sleep so might as well keep busy. Here goes.

One of my friends here on Blogger goes by the name of PunkChopstick. How do I define Punk? She's witty, she's brilliant, she's beautiful and she'll say anything.  Well at the end of the year, Punk tagged me to answer some questions for her. I decided to answer them using MS Paint. I did the backgrounds using Correl 12 (free thirty day trial!).

Question:  When did you stop believing in Santa Claus?

When that fat bastard stopped believing in me. Arsemonkey.

Question:  When did you stop believing in God and why?

I've never stopped believing in God. I'm a Catholic, it's mandatory.  And why do I still believe in Him?

Because I don't want to spend eternity in hell with a bunch of feckin' lawyers. 

Question:  If you could ask God one question, what would it be?

Men. Did you do it to us on purpose or was it just an accident?

Question:  If wound up on a deserted island and could only have one thing with you, what would it be?

That's a no brainer. My drums.  I've even named my kit. I call him The Beast (yeah after, John Bonham. Wanna make something of it? Do ya?).  He's a real bastard, I tell ya. If I don't give him a daily beating, he threatens to kill me.  He smokes stogies and he drinks whiskey. I love him.

Question:  If you could only have one person with you on the island, who would it be?

I would say John Bonham, but he's dead. So I'm going with Hubby.  Why you ask? Because he's the only person that can put up with my particular brand of shite. Hey, you've read my blog, how long would it take before you wanted to choke the life outta me? A few days? A week? You see my point.

Question: " Would you like to be my friend?"  Punk asks me.

Christ on a crutch, of course I do. You shouldn't even have to ask. Punk's bawdy like me and can also tolerate me. There's no way I'm gonna say no to an offer of friendship with her. 

And now onto part two of this game. I have to pick some bloggers and request that they answer some questions that I've come up with.  Here are my questions.

1.  What celebrity would you most like to shag and why?

2.  In the event of a zombie attack, what politician would you be willing to use as a human shield?

3.  Rate the survivability of at least 3 fellow bloggers if they are attacked by zombies.

4.  If you could reanimate just one dead person from history, who would it be?

5.  Would you be willing to take this person out to a pub? Why or why not?

6.  In the event of a nuclear holocaust, would you be willing to eat cockroaches to survive?

These are the bloggers I've decided to torture tag.

1. Matthew because you're like the younger brother I never had. And as such, I reserve the right to pick on you anytime I want to.

2. Barfly because you're the only American that could drink me under the table.

3. Michelle because somehow we are related. There's no doubt about it. You're so much like me, it's scary. I think my Grandad may have shagged your Grandmother when he visited the States as a young man.

4. Pat because somebody's gotta tag your rhyming ass.

5. B. because you're a new friend I'd like to see become an old friend.

6. Now this one's dicey, because frankly he scares the shit right outta me. Angry because you're my favorite blogger and seeing your face on my page makes being away from home a little easier to bear. Now, if Colin Farrel ever starts blogging, I'll forget I ever knew you.

There you have it. If you any of you don't want to do this I'll hate you forever not be offended. And if you do it, do it because it's fun and not because I asked you to.

Now I'm gonna go catch up on as many of yesterday's blogs as I can. When the phone rings, I'm outta here.  Have a great day.


  1. I really hope your husband is alright.

  2. best wishes for your husband!

    also "anne who? " Hahahahahaha bastard santa is a bastard alright

  3. Anne,
    I hope your hubby is ok. I really feel for you and your family and what you have been through. Thanks for the tag. I won't be able to answer these with justice until later this afternoon. I have to go out of town for the first half of the day.

    I love the questions though.

  4. @Barfly, you can do them anytime you want. The idea is to write your own post answering the questions. Do it at your leisure. No hurry.

  5. Hope everything with the hubby is well. And tagging my little rhyming ass huh? First time it's been put that way..haha. Fun questions indeed, will surely answer on my feed but might be a while, as the cat thinks ten days ahead when going down the rhyming mile.

  6. I hope your husband is alright.

    Great answers to those questions! I loved your pictures too! Especially the one with Satan (with the crusifics on the wall) good to know hes Catholic! They probably have mass every day in hell! (whats the white goo on satans wall? my mind goes to dirty places!)

  7. Hope he's ok Annie, I'll gie it a go.

    1. Candice Night. Look at her.

    2.Any of them, but preferably a big fat one.

    3. Leg-Iron 10/10. He already is one.

    Munguin 0/0. He's a stuffed penguin.

    Niko 5/10. A zombie would die if it bit him.

    4/5. Peter Cook. What a night in the pub that would be...

    6. Crunchy ones.

  8. @Vulcan I know he's been letting me down for years now. The bastard.

    @Pat, so that's how you do it. I work on the fly. Take your time. No pressure, just have fun if you decide to do it.

    @Bersercules, Mass in hell, it goes on forever. Another reason not to wind up there. Genuflecting for eternity. No way, no how. The white goo is me having fun with the impasto brushes on Correl 12, but now that I look at it again, Gross, you're right.

    @Conan, ah yes Peter Cook. Have you heard the story about when Cook, Bonham, Peter Sellars and Ringo Starr got arrested in France for having a food fight at a Chinese restraunt? The French were over the moon on that one.

  9. Hope hubby is better soon. Thinking of you. :)

  10. Bonzo FTW! and hope your husband has a speedy recovery!

  11. John Bonham blows. Hope hubby gets well soon, I have had two back surgeries and it SUX!!!

  12. @JeannAne Thank you.

    @annoymouse. Thanks. I got your name right this time. Did you notice that?

    @AK those are fighting words AK. Really, I used to get in fist fights over this as a kid. I always won. I'm little but I'm fast, and I carry a knife and a glock. I hope you've recovered from your surgeries. They are bad.

  13. haha yeah I got like 25 posts ahead of the game. Whenever I get an idea I just let my muse fly and then just save it if I have something else to post. Oh and I will have fun and get it done, as it will be from a cats perspective..haha

  14. Good answer's to Punk's questions. Can't wait to see what those you've tagged have to say.

  15. Oh my god, I hope your husband is alright. I remember when my gandad was in intensive care and i visited him every day after school.... He's in my prayers (Both of them)

    I LOVED your answers lol! especially this one "When that fat bastard stopped believing in me. Arsemonkey." You are a friggin genius. Don't ever change (please)

  16. @Pat holy crap Batman! 25 posts ahead. I wish I could do that. It'll never happen though.

    @Joshua me neither. I tried to make them fun and tailor them to the people I tagged. But who doesn't think about shagging celebs and zomie attacks.

    @Punk I was hoping you'd like it. I promise not to change if you promise not to change. Off to college soon for you!

  17. I hope your husband is okay..

  18. Hey Anne, thanks for following my blog.
    Just letting you know I'm returning the favour :)

  19. I feel so bad now for being slightly irked that you never commented on my blog for a while now Anne. Seriously, here's hoping that your husband has a speedy recovery and gets out of hospital as soon as he possibly can, obviously myself and everyone else understands if you can't check out our blogs and menial stuff like that, it's not that important.

    I loved your answer about not wanting to spend life in hell with a bunch of lawyers to the extent it's making me consider becoming religious. I actually have considered it a bit recently although I find I agree more with the Catholic faith which is problematic because of where I'm from so idk. I'll answer those questions in my next blog too, thanks for tagging me!

  20. I got a question. Who would you punch in the face, Jason Derulo or Simon Cowell?

  21. Sorry my last comment was such a drive-by! I think it's awesome that you named your drums after "The Hammer Of The Gods", as he was also known. He was my fav, too. The world is worse off for his passing, in my opinion. I would loved to have drummed, my my bitch-mother would never have allowed it! She always had to be the centre of attention and, as Pasty Stone's mum said in Ab Fab, "... could quite frankly do without the competition! I'm surprised she let me persue art at all, really! Cow!

    I'm afraid I don't post very much as my life is major boring shit and I have nothing much of interest to share. Sad, I know, but it's the downside of having no life and virtually no friends in my own country! I'll try to find something to post about soon. Here's hoping it isn't a major snore fest! :)

  22. as I said over at Tweeter, darling, I'm keeping my fingers crossed for your hubs! I'm sure everything will be fine, you Irish people are tough and indestructible! I mean you survived the British and the Jedward twins!

    "What celebrity would you most like to shag and why"
    I believe my list would have at least a thousand spots... I'm a bit of a slut, am I not :)

  23. Oh wow. I'm sorry about your hubby. :-( I'll be keeping you in my prayers until everything is resolved.

    Also, I would be honored to be your friend. For serious.

    3rdly, I will be answering this question. I just hope you aren't upset with my answer. :-)

  24. Good questions, Anne. Probing. I just wanted to use the word 'probing'. I can think of lots of people that I'd like to hear answers from. They should have asked these questions during the Republican debates here in the US. Dammit why am I just thinking of this now! Gah!

    Also, I'm excited the drums are Ludwig. Yeah! Punk Rock!!!

    On a different, serious note; I'm very sorry to hear about your husband's medical issue. I don't know you (but I'd like to!), but I will be thinking of both of you and sending warm hugs and get well vibes to you.

    Stay safe but still party!

  25. Ah - fingers crossed for your husband. What a terrifying and stressful time. Thinking of you both

  26. My positive thoughts go to you and your whole family, especially the hubby. Sorry to hear, and again, stop being sorry for having important things mess up your not so important things! It's life, most of us understand.

    As for the rest of the post, ahah. Men were on purpose. There needs to be balance! The world would be too far ahead if we left it to women, we need to take our time. ;)

  27. Sorry about hubby. I hope he's doing ok. <3

    Love your pictures. The pics hanging on Satan's wall made me laugh for like 10 minutes.


  28. When I read that you'd take The Beast, gotta admit, a drum isn't what I pictured.

  29. @Matthew, I know I was late getting to everyone and I didn't post either. There's still no answers yet. I'll know more in the next hour or so.

    @Arinze definately Simon Cowell

    @Jeanne write about you mom and play off the Ab Fab thing. Make it funny and it'l be good. I'd like to read that.


  30. @Dez yest you're a slut darling, it's why I love you. How about the top 100 then? You can tell me 2 a day on Twitter. It'll be fun

    @B I'll probably roll over laughing at your answer. Say whatever you want. Hey I followed you back on Twitter this morning. Your tweets are locked. Open the door for me!

    @Mrs One A Day I'd love to know what they would have said about which politician they would use as a human shield. I love the use of your word probing by the way. Very erudite of you (haha I wanted to hear myself say that). I love my Ludwig 26 inch bass. He thunders.

    @MonkeyPanda thank you petal, I appreciate it.

  31. @D4 I guess we do need you guys, I just think he could have done a better job :)

    @Bart glad you liked something.

    @Mich I thought those pics were appropriate as that's where that feckin' movie belongs.

    @Allen, where have you been? Haven't seen you in a while.

  32. haha cant wait to see Pats answers on these...looks like we might be waiting for a while...bonham is you are a drummer...nice...

    thoughts for you and hubby today...hope all goes well...

  33. No offense!? Tend to your husband. We'll be here when you get back.
    Since you asked.....
    Scarlett Johansson.
    Even though she never returns my calls.

  34. I read Matthews blog post and I don't think you'll find my response as interesting as you think.

  35. Sorry to here about Hubby, I hope he's ok! Love the post, it made me larf!!!Excellent questions and great answers especially the one about the superior sex.......Men! Quick duck!!!!

  36. Hope the hubby is ok!!!!
    Great questions by the way!

  37. Dang who asked all those weird questions haha.

  38. Best wishes for your husband's surgery.

    But more importantly, thank you for handing me my next blog post. I'm answering those questions regardless of the fact that no one asked me.

    I'm new here so I'm just learning things like the fact that you're a drummer. I love that. Nothing like being able to beat on things and call it art.

  39. Anne,
    You are good. I had to dive into the "fecking" depths of my depravity for that, but I have something on my blog. Thanks again, I will return it.

  40. I forgot to say Anne that I would have put you in the questions thing but since you were the one who tagged me and since you understandably hate this kind of thing I didn't bother. Don't want you to feel I debliberately left you out or anything, I wouldn't. Still thinking about your husband.

  41. Hope your hubby is doing well!!

  42. Fantastic answer's Anne. I hope your Husband's visit to the hospital is a short one, and that you have a good new year.

  43. Interesting answers to the questions.
    Best wishes for your hubby too.

    6. In the event of a nuclear holocaust, would you be willing to eat cockroaches to survive?

    I'm a survivor. Yeah I'll do it.

  44. Ăn chay tốt cho sức khỏe của bạn và điệu trị một số bệnh tiểu đường, cao huyết áp, tim mạch, loãng xương, viêm khớp, ăn chay Áp dụng chế độ ăn chay có thể giảm tới một nửa nguy cơ các khối u phát triển, các nhà nghiên cứu cho biết. Bạn cho là chỉ có thịt, cá mới có thể cung cấp đầy đủ protein cần thiết cho cơ thể. Suy nghĩ này không hòan toàn đúng. chất đạm không chỉ có trong thịt mà chưa trong nhiều thức ăn khác. Đúng hơn là thức ăn chay thường hàm lượng chất xơ, Mg, K, vitamin C, E, folate, carotenoids, flavonoids và các chất hóa học từ đậu khá cao, hơn khẩu phần ăn mặn. Ngày nay việc ăn chay đã trở nên phổ biến. Ngoài những người ăn chay vì tín ngưỡng, phần còn lại xem ăn chay như một biện pháp thanh lọc cơ thể và để giảm nguy cơ một số bệnh.

  45. Hope your fella makes it out okay. Also those pictures are quite humorous.

  46. greeeat post amazing blog =)

  47. Best wishes to you and your husband!

  48. Anne, never apologize for leaving bitchy comments on our page again ;) I for one, think they're awesome. And as you probably have noticed, our sense of humor does not entirely differ so no worries there sweet cheeks. And please keep us updated on your husband, I hope everything goes well!

    - Ash

  49. I knew you would tag me, hahaha!!! Love the pics you used for illustration. You look awesome as a pirate. Still sending healing, positive vibes your way. Love you, sis!

  50. I'm very sorry my love, the questions and answers were great especially Catholicism (once in, never out) and it has delayed my suicide because of you want me to answer the questions here or on my blog?

  51. Awww! You did this with your hubby in the hospital! You sooooo rock. Keeping your fam in my thoughts and prayers and sending good vibes!

  52. @Angry the convention is to answer the on your blog. You do it however you'd like to, it will make me happy either way. You mean a great deal to me Angry. Thank you.

  53. I hope your husband turns out okay. I'll be praying to our Catholic God for him (I'm a lifer too).

    Also, you've gotten really good at that MSPaint. And "I stopped believing in Santa when that fat bastard stopped believing in me" might be the quote of the day.

  54. @Michelle I could never have left you out sis. You're the closes thing to a sister I have over here. I love you petal xxx

  55. Sorry for leaving constant comments on here but I'm not sure if you'd read it or not on my blog, delete it if it's annoying! :)

    But yeah when it comes to Twitter I'm not keen on the whole idea. I have a Facebook and when I'm in a certain type of mood or whatever I'll post some of the shit that's in my mind no matter how cruel or nasty or whatever it is and it leaves a bad taste in a lot of people's mouths. That's why when I make new friends I always avoid adding them, I only have current friends added because they accept me for who I am! When it comes to Twitter I reckon I'd be the same so I'll probably leave it for a while and maybe get it in the future, sorry about that Anne. I should check your Twitter out though!

  56. So sorry about the hospital and hubby. Hope all is well very soon!

  57. Ah yes, Catholic old nemesis. I think that going to church (and a Catholic school) had and adverse effect on my faith. I lol'ed at your Santa and Satan pics... hmm, those names are quite similar.

    I'll have to check in with your blogger friends to see how they answered your questions. In the meantime I'll take a stab at one:
    3. Rate the survivability of at least 3 fellow bloggers if they are attacked by zombies.

    A Beer For The Shower: 2/10. Brandon/Bryan would probably piss in their pants (if only because it's funnier than fighting), but they might have a little drunken bravery in 'em.

    A Fallacious Comedy: 5/10. He says he's "not the hero" but if push met shove he could probably save his own ass.

    Sick B*tch: 8/10. Mich is a tiny little thing but she's got enough knives to supply a small army. She'd give those zombies hell.

    Best wishes for your husband's recovery. Hope he's well!

  58. Get well soon to your husband.

    I never thought that Ms Paint would get so mainstream.
