All lies of course. I am so not a Hannah Montana fan! I mean, the show is for kids and all...
I just wanted to say that we might have to postpone "Bee n' Andy" for a little while because we are at the critical part of the remodel downstairs. Andy has been really busy (I typed in *busty* by mistake because I'm high but then I caught myself just in time cuz you guys don't need to know the state of my man's moobs) and as a matter of fact Saturday was a bitch of a day where the guys worked their asses off and the non stop rain decided to piss on their parade.
They dug a hole in the laundry room to install the sump pump and get it ready for next weekend, you know what happened? The fuckin hole filled up with water and then it made the plastic pit rise and the gravel they so lovingly sifted in there floated up and it reminded me of the famous fable where some bird was thirsty but he couldn't fit his beak in this wine bottle and hello! wine for a bird? what the hell? but anyway it transferred pebble after pebble into the bottle until the liquid (which I'm really hoping wasn't wine because I think it would be bitter and more vinegar-like than wine-like if the bottle was sitting there open in the sun) rose to the top. Yup that's the same thing that happened with the pit. And also, they had mixed some cement which didn't have time to set so I'm assuming we will have a nice goopy puddle of runny cement downstairs by the morning.
I know you guys are probably sick of hearing me go on and on about the stupid flood but believe me, we're tired of having to deal with it.
To try and make my blood pressure go down, we will go see The Watchmen today and have some nachos... except, they're probably high in sodium!

Andy said my thought bubble was all funky and I said "You know what? At least I don't fantasize about Salma Hayek the crazy breast feeding random babies with her humongo knockers ho-bag!" and so then he left me alone. We will be back next Sunday with a full comic strip since we have been a little busy this week trying to save the world (without having to breast feed them)(what? THAT WAS SO WEIRD OF HER TO DO!)(the baby's family doesn't have food, give them money or buy them a fuckin cow! She was all 'oh, the baby latched on because it was so hungry!' while she posed for the camera. Next thing you know she's going to say she's a Scientologist)(okay, I'm done).

I am including my "storyboard" so you can see what Andy has to deal with. He asked me if I wanted the comic strip to be based in the future this week and when I innocently asked him why: "I thought that's what the spaceships were for!"
I frankly don't know what he's talking about.
I've gotten emails and comments regarding the picture thing which is cool! Sorry I haven't responded but my mom has been a handful. I thought I had my pantry pretty stocked but then she asked for beans and I haven't bought any since the kitchen fire disaster so... yeah.
Some you may have missed:

I wanted to share with you guys what Andy has to put up with when we're thinking about what we'll post on Sunday Comics "Bee n' Andy: Married and sometimes, still in love...".
Usually, he asks "What do you want me to draw?" I respond with something vague like "well you remember that one thing that happened that one day when you pissed me off??" Andy looks at me in confusion "Member? That we laughed about?" still no comprehension on his face "::sigh:: when the beans made fire and I yelled for help and you went to open the backdoor?" then he understands and his next question is "Okay, what do you want on each panel?" then I'll stand up and do charades while I'm talking.
"Okay, in the first one you should show me at the stove [I mimic me at the stove sautéing something] but in the background I'll make a bubble showing I hear you and Tazz arguing [I cup my hand to my ear while I'm still mimicking sautéing] then the second panel shows me saving you from Tazz [I mimic pulling at something which I guess could be Tazz] then the third panel shows the fire and you see me going like this [me making 'Oh Shit' face] and we see you walking into the kitchen and then the last panel shows you leaving with the dogs but I don't know how to imply you are running away to safety. You know?" then I did an interpretive dance to People are Strange from the awesome Doors, sat down and I was all sweaty and my beloved husband asks "can you sketch it out for me?" and then of course I think to myself "if I could sketch it out, I'd be doing the whole thing buddy!" but I do sketch it and this is what I come up with:
So he looks at me and laughs but doesn't say anything else until he is going to actually draw it.
"Bee, what is this squiggly line right here?"
"That's you babe"
"Can you show me what about this squiggle would indicate it's me?"
Gah! I have to do everything around here!
Anyway, as I told Tracy, I didn't want him to draw me as a fantasy Bee, you know, all tall and voluptuous.
censored for your protection.
I wanted him to keep it more real. Besides, if he would have drawn me like that, I'd constantly be asking him if he was fantasizing about Cartoon Bee and I'd be jealous of myself and wanting to kick my own ass. I don't need that type of stress.
I hear where Tracy is coming from though because who wants to see a frumpy housewife in a blog? You'd much rather see a sex kitten all naked with hair all scattered about her.
And if that is how you picture me, I am not one to argue since that's how I feel in my head. But I haven't looked like that in oh I don't know 5 years? If you are now thinking about the fact that that's within the timeframe of mine and Andy's marriage and are now making a connection on who is responsible for the downfall of my figure, you would be correct! The nachos have nothing to do with it! It's all Andy!
I know the hair will change in the cartoon and once I get my new contacts, I'll probably not be wearing my glasses much so that will be different too. The cartoon us will have changes in clothing since he usually draws us with whatever we're wearing at the moment. What I'm trying to say is we will probably evolve more as we continue with the Sunday Comics. Andy has refused the idea of a boobchin so stop asking (you men know who you are!)! I will however try to talk him into a sombrero but I really don't look good in hats. And now you have more information than you ever needed.
In other news, I am now on THE FACEBOOK. Well, I had an account from a long time ago but I didn't do anything with it because it seemed complicated... until today. Brother Sergio talked me into logging on and looking at his pictures.
So, if any of you who are on THE FACEBOOK too and want to be my friend, go here-> Bees Musings and do the voodoo that you do so well but don't ask me for how tos because I have no clue... yet. Facebook better watch its cookies once I know my way around it!
Anyway for my blog, here is the linkadink... I think? Bee's Musings @ Facebook.
This concludes another uninteresting insight into my psyche.

You guys may have recognized this story from when I posted it under the disguise of "How to start a kitchen fire in 5 easy steps.". You know, when Andy tried to let me burn while he headed for safety? I mean, it wasn't enough that I had just saved him from Tazzer the Carnivorous or that I was trying to cook him dinner!
No, that picture on the "5 easy steps" post is not my kitchen. I was more worried about saving my house than taking a picture of the fire that was about to consume my cabinets.
Yes, this cartoon Bee got a haircut.
When I asked him why he drew
my boobies!! me so dangerously close to the stove, he said that is how close they are in real life. So, me being me, I went and stood by the stove and yes indeedy, my bazoombas were in fact in mortal danger that day. AND I NEVER EVEN REALIZED IT! You'd figure he would have wanted to save those at least.

Remember what MY DRAWING looked like? How awesome does my Andy draw? Also, I think he should have given me bigger boobs. It's only fair.
