the MOFC

we work at a little place known as osage farms during the summers, which is where a number of our best stories come from. every year we dread the day that osage starts... strawberries... corn... cabbage OH MY! it's not osage itself that we don't like, it's the people, who we swear, the sight of produce makes them stupid. here is a common question: "what days are y'all open?"..."8am to 6pm, 7 days a week"... "oh, sunday too?"

ok... lets take a moment to think about this!


the last time I checked... sunday is one of the 7 days in a week, and while this may not seem so bad to you, you should get ask this question about a million times a day and you will find yourself wanting to seriously hurt the next person to wonder if sunday has been removed from the 7-day-week as we know it.

another thing that happens during the summers is that we watch a lot of movies and tv shows. when you work on a farm the last thing you want to do on your day off is something that will cause you exert any amount of energy. so we find ourselves at movie time video and i am not joking when i say that we have seen near every movie in that place.

we have been through many stages in our quest for a good show or movie to watch: HOUSE and The Office are among some of our favorites. we have a love for dry humor.

however, one of our most memorable stages was the dance stage... this was when we watched every dance movie known to man: dirty dancing, dirty dancing: havana nights, stomp the yard, you got served, save the last dance, step up (1 and 2) and others i'm sure we have forgot about. well, long story short.... we decided we needed to start a dance crew at the farm. the problem with this idea is that we can't dance! if you in any way doubt this, you should go here to see what we would look like trying to dance.
the name of our crew... MOFC (mini osage farming crew). randi may or may not have tried to learn how to break dance and ruthie may or may not have tried to learn how to shake her pom pom (whatever that is). we even had plans to bring the our mexican friends that we work with on this because carlos could possibly "drop it like it's hot".

in the long run the dance crew was never "made it big". however, the shrine still hangs in randi's room. maybe this summer. it's not impossible ;)

in case you don't know us!

we (ruthie) keeps a list of craziness that happens in the kuzanna life... so if you need an idea of what a normal day with us is. brace yourself. here is some of the quotes/happenings from a normal day.

we decide to go down to the local track and spy on people (a frequent past time):
randi... "ok, look at those two there. you be the voice of the one on the right and i will be the voice of the one on the left."
ruthie..."ok, but you should know that i am pretty sure we just kissed each other."
randi..."ew... ugh... well that's not awkward at all"

randi participates in the cirque program at her school where she has to wear a clown costume:
ruthie... "well, at least 'you-know-who' (boy she liked at the time) wasn't there! That's a good thing, right?"
randi... " yea, i guess i wouldn't want the guy i like to see me bawl like a baby in a nasty clown costume, which was wedged up my butt"

randi orders a milk shake from burger king and it has a HUGE straw in it:
ruthie... "how's that big straw working for ya?"
randi... "sucks!"

randi eats way to many oreos:
randi... "i'm going to walk you to your car, then i'm going inside to throw up!"

ruthie and randi house/dog sit (see below post):
ruthie (talking to the dog that is scared of thunder)... "you hear the boom boom come?"

randi shows ruthie pictures of her crush online:
ruthie... "now see... he looks cuter in this picture!"
randi... "well, that's because that's NOT him!"

randi is texting her friend michael about her softball game:
randi... "today i got beaned"
michael... "that sounds racist considering i am mexican"
ruthie... "randi, it's B.E.A.M.E.D. not beaned!"
randi... "oh, well i always thought it sounded funny, but i just imagined little mexican men throwing beans at each other."

because there are so many of these... we will stop here. we will keep you updated on the funniest moments of our life and hope that you find them as funny as we do.

the human car wash

recently randi and i house sat for a friend of mine... this adventure included babysitting three dogs (oscar, bingo, and belay). belay is old and needed medicine, bingo didn't care if we were there or not and oscar? well oscar LOVED us! a little too much in our opinion. how can a small dog be so annoying? the first night oscar slept with us (we thought this would be fun)... WRONG! it was hot and oscar took the whole bed. randi couldn't sleep without her fan and despite my best efforts to "think cool thoughts" i was way to hot to sleep. we both agreed that the next night oscar would be banished to the living room.

oscar somehow won us over with his charms and we decided that he could sleep in the room with us, but NOT in the bed. that night = much less tragic. the rest of the week went well other than the fact that we could figure out how to work the shower in the master bathroom because it was like walking in to ha human size car wash.

really?... how do you work this?

ok, ok... so this is not exactly how it looked, but close and the fact is that we couldn't work it. sure there was another shower, but it didn't look near as fun. we named it the "normal people shower" and that is were we took our baths. i am sad to inform you that we NEVER figured out how to work the car wash.

On the top side of things we did make a delicious dinner one night :)
