SH “HIT AND RUN” THURSDAY: Champagne Wishes and CRAPPIES!… Alexis Bellino, Tamballs Barney… PHOTOS!!… And flipit/Ronnie’s “BS of the Day”!!!

champagne taittinger

It is a rare occurrence that I write anything personal on SH.  This is an exception.  We celebrated New Year’s not on New Year’s Eve like everyone else in the world, but celebrated last night.  Why?  Really don’t know, but it’s just something that we’ve always done… maybe to make sure that the New Year sticks?  Just a guess, ’cause it’s just a traditional thing with no real basis or reason!  That being said, I cannot pass up a great meal or a great bottle of champagne… and having both together is my weakness.

Therefore, I write this feeling a bit hungover, as I rarely drink.  In fact, I had my first beer at age 31.  I hated the smell of the stuff and could not imagine anyone enjoying a drink of it… and finally tasted my first beer on a dare at a picnic.  That is how much I drink!

OK, sorry for the rambling.  But, it can be directly blamed on bottles of Moet and Taittingers … along with consuming a very rich meal.   I feel sick from overeating and over drinking.


Good God!  I just passed a mirror on the way to letting my dog outside… I look hungover, but kinda look cute, too!   Kisses to me!!   Oh, God, I can’t think…


Hair disheveled, eyes a bit reddish and I could even see my brain talking inside my head!   Ma brain was saying, “Don’t bother splashing cold water on your face… it will not help.  You will just have to live with this until it’s all out of your system.  You will feel much better this afternoon.  Go drink some coffee.”  Great advice, brain!

So, while sipping on hot coffee… which was graciously prepared for me by Mr. SH earlier, ’cause he told me last night the effects that my love of champagne will have on me today; however, I told him that he doesn’t know what he’s talkin’ about because I only drink on rare occasions and only drink Dubonnet (on the rocks with a twist… and my limit is two) and champagne.  So there, Mr. SH… I know what I’m talkin’ about after I’ve had four flutes filled with Taittingers, so keep your comments about me drinkin’ once or twice a year to yerself!  HARUMPH!  Now, a refill, please!

OK, back to the coffee drinkin’…

So, while coffee sippin’… what could be better than listening to the trifecta of funny over at TVGasm while coddling this “hungover” feeling!

Ma new Hubbend of 2013, flipit/Ronnie; Matt Whitaker and Ben Mandelker have compiled and selected their very FIRST First Annual Watch What Crappens CRAPPIES Award Show Podcast!   So, git on over to TVGasm and take a listen!


NOTE:  There will be more about the SH and flipit/Ronnie wedding later!  Oh, it was an event!!  And, many of you were there!  I’ll just take the time now to thank you all for NOT revealing any of the details to the many media outlets who have been begging for any little tad of info.  We are now in the process of selecting the magazine which we feel will best show our wedding most tastefully…. and, of course, the magazine which will pay us the most cash!   InTouch made an offer of $367,866… but that was to be paid to THEM for running the wedding piece.  We are “negotiating” with InTouch… mostly arguing with Connie, the receptionist, that the payment arrangements should be reversed, but Connie wants to us to buy a subscription before she continues with negotiations!  


Look who has done a total 180… or is it 360?  Or is it 90?  I’m just not sure… numbers are hurtin’ ma brain right now.   Anyways, just forgit about the numbers… looky at who has had a change in their tude toward SH!

bellino alexis pg

NOTE:  It’s kinda rude of da Bellinos to address Tamballs as “Tamra”… we all know her name is Tamballs!  You’re just confusing people, Jimbo… and Jimbo’s rib!

Maybe to avoid any confusion from now on just refer to Tamballs as…


There will be more to come later today…. as soon as I’m done with this weird kinda hungover malady.

OMG!  Forgot about my dog outside… gotta go!

UPDATE:  Am feeling a little bit better, but just realized how much of the day has passed by!   I kinda got lost in lookin’ at photos of my dog… strange, but true!  He’s just so cute.  When he was a puppy, he used to sleep in one of my shoes.  No, my feet are not as big as KooKooKelly’s huge boats… just a normal size 8.5 or 41 if you’re goin’ by European sizes!

So, am kinda doin’ a “let it fly” day!  Just anything that pops into ma brain will be submitted for your reading pleasure… or displeasure, if you deem the words not to your liking!

AND… just to let you see what I’ve been looking at, these are more photos of my dog.  He’s now 14, a very, very advanced age for his breed… Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.

AND… while looking through photos, found some which you may also enjoy!  In no particular order!


A very BAD dog from HagfaceKyle’s photo shoot…

  1. Belated Happy New Year to Mr. and Ms. SH — and, of course, to Doggie Delightful!

    Is puppy a Springer Spaniel, by any chance? S/he reminds me so much of our dearly beloved and recently deceased HerShe.


      • I so wanted a cavalier King Charles spaniel…. My husband said it was to much money… I got a papillon instead… His name is Pierre and we love him… But he wasn’t cheap..


        • My granddaughter just informed me that I should have said too expensive, instead of to… Kids, I do believe she is right, I wish she was 8 again, instead of 9. :)


        • A lady that walks her dog in my neighborhood has a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and that dog is the cutest thing on four legs. The first time I saw her walking it, I had to go over and ask what kind of dog it was and tell her how cute it was.


    • That is a beautiful Cavalier King Charles Spaniel like my own baby, Romeo! Romeo is a teetotaler though! Happy New Year Ms SH!!


      • Love your dog Ms. SH such a cuite…. the pixs here are hilarious as usual love the Bellinos especially lol…


  2. I was 50 before I had my first drink. I waited for my kids to leave the house before I acquired my vices. Taittingers doesn’t give me a headache but I can’t stay awake after 2 flutes full.
    I have to admit I’m a tad bit hurt that I didn’t get an invite to the wedding. My costume as your robotic arm should have insured my place at your side. I’m sure it was an over site. I would have worn my fancy overalls just for you and left the corn-pipe and cats at home.


  3. Happy New Year Ms SH! Sounds like a good time was had by all! Thanks for sharing the pictures of your precious dog. I myself am still in recovery from my grazing and boozing thru the entire month of December….I kinda feel bad now….


  4. Pets are so much fun..they give us so much joy, Clover was so glad to see me yesterday come from work he didnt knwo what to do Popcorn,run around his cage or dig in his hay so he did all three it was comical to watch.
    You Puppy is so cute MS SH.


    • Interesting way to go in and celebrate the New Year Ms Sh. I like that idea of waiting until the 2nd, kinda makes sense to me. New Years eve is So crazy, and there is a sort of melancholy surrounding the first. It may be why I don’t really celebrate it anymore?! Anyway, Happy New Year to you :) I think your book will be Great! P.S. Your dog is So Adorable!!


  5. MS SH:
    Over the years I’ve learned some things about drinking and I’ll pass them onto you, and if it may seem like I’m rambling, it’s because I am. Unlike you, when I first smelled beer, I had to have some, so at 15 years old, I drove my car (yes, I had my own car at 15) to a drive through beer distributor and bought some. Sure was good until I puked my guts out. Well, like any good drinker I learned how to control that and by the time I was in the service I was hitting my prime. When I was in my mid thirties I switched from beer to vodka, but hangovers were still a problem. There really isn’t a cure except for time and / or a blood transfusion, but here are a few tips that make most people feel better.

    Get a real chocolate milk shake, not some fake smoothy kind. I even bought a professional grade milk shake maker so I wouldn’t have to leave my house on the morning after. Or if you know how to make one, a chocolate ice cream soda (very few people know how to make one and there aren’t many soda fountains around anymore) or at minimum a Pepsi or root beer float. To make any of this effective, you also have to have a diner, or home made, not fast food, greasy cheeseburger, grilled cheese or B.L.T with lots of B. As I get older, my hangovers last longer and I’m still coping with mine from the day before New Years eve. I always celebrate the day before since everyplace is less crowded and I don’t have to wait very long for my drinks, therefore I can drink more faster for a longer time. Not a good strategy for sure, bit it seems like a good idea after a few.
    Your dog looks cool. Does he bite?


    • I agree!! I’ve discovered the chocolate milk and greasy food as a hangover relief years ago too.
      SH: Happy New Year! Adorable pup! We hated leaving our “babies” (two kitties) for 2 weeks, but we headed back to NY to spend the holidays with my family. Planned on so many NY things, but we all got sick, one by one. Make sure you’re just hungover and not at the beginning of this icky bug going around! It’s a bad one.


  6. Mrs SH, Your pup is absolutely adorable, such a sweet face!

    We have the beer thing in common, I could never get it past my nose! I would get so MAD that in HS when there were “barrels” I had to chip in even though I wasn’t drinking- hey 2 bucks back then was a lot of money for a HS kid with an expensive music habit! Tattingers is my fave, started drinking it after watching “La Cage aux Folles” and they toasted with Tattingers, I thought if it was what the French were drinking for champagne then it had to be good! I put it on par with Dom Perignon.

    So good to read that you are having some fun, well deserved!


    • I agree about Tattingers. I only drink good champagne or I have a migraine for days… I had vueve clicquot and it was yummy.


  7. Doggy is so cute. I like the first pic best. He looks like he is just SOOOOO over it. Consider substituting his picture every now and then in place of the Liz Lemon eye roll. Sorry about your headache Ms SH. I had myself one too but I was drankin very very cheap champagne so I actually felt the headache coming on even before my head hit the pillow. And its interesting that you mention beer. I have never ever ever been able to like beer(I have tried) and just to give you an idea just how cheap the champagne was I drank it kinda sorta tasted like beer. Then again I am a sweety fruity drank kinda gal so… Anyway really good idea to celebrate new year a day later. I got some peach vodka in the fridge but I think I need more recover time before i plow into that bad boy. :)


  8. Best wishes to Ms. SH and all of you for a wonderful 2013 and beyond…

    May the road rise to meet you,
    May the wind be always at your back.
    May the sun shine warm upon your face,
    The rains fall soft upon your fields.
    And until we meet again,
    May God hold you in the palm of his hand.

    May God be with you and bless you:
    May you see your children’s children.
    May you be poor in misfortune,
    Rich in blessings.
    May you know nothing but happiness
    From this day forward.

    May the road rise up to meet you
    May the wind be always at your back
    May the warm rays of sun fall upon your home
    And may the hand of a friend always be near.

    May green be the grass you walk on,
    May blue be the skies above you,
    May pure be the joys that surround you,
    May true be the hearts that love you.


    • Hers, I couldn’t have seen this at a more profound moment in my life. Feeling vulnerable…so I’ll proceed with caution. Thank you. While I often get on here just to catch up and chat, I do believe sadly and unknowingly, somehow I’ve managed to build walls that I have built so carefully even I know longer know which misplaced brick will cause the fort to fall. …..
      Thank you for the words “May the wind always be at your back, and the Sun Shine upon your face; may God always hold you in the palm of his hand”… for they bring up fond memories of a girl I use to know. They strike a cord in me and I wonder where she went…
      I wish I could better express my gratitude but I fear I would fall apart. So again I will just say thank you.
      Your reminder of a time that once was are appreciated….more then you could


        • Gee, SH and KTgirl, you just brought tears to my eyes. It’s funny — I was sitting here at my computer today enjoying SH, and something brought that blessing to my mind and led me to post it. I see now that it was brought to my mind for a reason and want you to know it was coming from my heart. I’m so glad it encouraged you both.


        • Ms SH: Thank you. I think I was feeling a little embarrassed afterwards. I appreciated what you said. Thanks again.


  9. My husband and I were given a very nice bottle of Krug champagne for Christmas. My husband is a huge fan of champagne, I am not. But this was the best I had ever tasted, Beat out Dom and all the rest. I don’t drink now. (damn near killed myself with it. Spent a month plus in hospital that I don’t even remember -it was that bad. Liver and kidney failure- the whold nine yards. Family from across the country/world came to say goddbye. I am very lucky to still be here. Sober for 13 years now.) Anywho, if I drank and money was not a problem, it would be Krug. Save some dough, if necessary, and just try it once.


  10. Awwwwwe look at Big Boy…
    Happy New Year, MsSH and MrSH! I hope you got over that hangover.
    Congratulations to Mr and Mrs Flipit! Or did you keep your last name? Hmm ;-)


  11. I must be an equal-opportunity-drinker….love the good stuff + know how to smile through the cheap stuff too. Prefer my beer dark + bitter…(like my humor) Meow ;)


  12. Your dog is sooo cute…a little lump of love!!! Cant think of a better way to cure a hangover than to look at that face!!!


  13. I scrolled super fast through the DonCaro pics like one of those cartoon flipbooks and cracked myself up. Ms. SH your baby boy is adorable!


  14. I kept on scrolling & scrolling in hope of more dog photos, but all I got way icky housewives.

    The problem I have with Champagne is the way it makes sparkling wine taste like bubbly vinegar if I drink it within a week of the real stuff.


  15. This is my all time favorite post of yours. There’s nothing like a good hungover rambling to get a snippet into someone’s real life. I feel like we’ve truly bonded. LOve you, love your dog!
