very funny. i like people who enjoy life and i can tell you are one!


Who is the asthma sufferer?

I liked your quotes, well...not crazy about Dr. Phil. I liked his quote but he sort of scares the shit out me. Probably because he would have a lot to say about my life....:)


So why did you move from Ok to Col.? I agree that retail jobs are a lot of work for little pay.


Hello, Swampwitch,
Blogger does not want me to comment. I like your blog. Both the the title, "Anecdotes, Antidotes, and Anodes" and your name, Swampwitch, intrigue me. Your way of viewing the world makes me laugh.

Would you share your recipe for garlic cheese grits? ...sounds yummy


MSUGal86: I try never to take any day for granted. :)

Laura:I manufacture a product that helps preven asthmas in arid regions of the country that use evaporative (swamp)coolers. Dr. Phil might have a lot to say, but I would be you would like him.

Brian: The OK to CO move was because of a guy and 12 years later, it's still good. "Back then" I was glad to get $.50 an hour.

Enjoyed reading about you! And thanks for the garlic cheese grits recipe. I like grits just about anyway I can fix them.


I love your favorite quotes. :)

I am going to have to try garlic cheese grits.

Grinning from ear to ear :D. FUN getting to know you a bit better! Thanks for "playing" along. Me likey how you deviated from the "rules" and came up with your own category (cool quotes).

I don't have any idea WHAT those first two soups are...! But I lovelovelove good soups (especially in the fall/winter).


Grits. Funny story. I will try to keep it short.

I am from Nebraska, not exactly the grits capitol. I was traveling with a girlfriend to visit her family in North Carolina. We went to a breakfast buffet and I cheerfully commented TO THE ENTIRE table that I thought that the south was so interesting! I mean, they served MASHED POTATOES for breakfast. I got some long looks and then everyone burst out laughing. I had been talking about the grits.


Nice to get to know you. . .


The very first time I drove through the south I ordered bacon and eggs in a restaurant and they automatically served grits with my order. Looked like hot cereal to me, so I asked for a bowl, scraped the grits into it, put sugar and milk on them and they were yummy! But I got some very weird looks. LOL!

I don't care for grits. I like whole hominy, drained and fried with onions, butter, garlic salt and a bit of paprika. Over easy eggs on the top.

I don't watch Phil much but I do like that quote: "So, how's that workin' for you?"


Great post, very funny and entertainiing.


Great story about Oklahoma! Geesh, I LOVE my state...sometimes I miss my home state of N.MICH and all of the pines/evergreens but I do not think I could ever leave Okla.

My husband and 12 yo son LOVE Dr.Phil....I have heard every one of his quotes over and over about 500X...especially the 'hows that working for ya' one. :))

E.T. is a classic movie. I remember seeing it in the movie theatre when I was a teenager. My best friend cried when E.T. died (but he didnt really).

great list!


Laura: What I tried to say earlier was, "Dr. Phil might have a lot to say about your life, but I'll bet you would like him." Since I was posting late last night, my fingers weren't cooperating. And, I love your grits story. Here, you never have to keep it short.

Songbird: I also like grits with butter, sugar, cream, and raisins.

Debs: Double Double Comment Comment. How does that happen? Once, my comment came up three (3) times. Enjoy the grits.

Robin: Thanks again for the tag and sorry I didn't link you to it. I'll link you to some other post this week. I'm usually a strict rule-follower and never deviate from it, but in my mind I just thought I saw quotes somewhere. Oh well, it's a good category to add, don't you think? :)
Plus, I'll post the recipes for Yucatan Lime Soup and Posole this week. Since soups are a great dish for this time of year.

Shauna: Thanks for visiting...Ya'll come back now, hear?

Gayle: Maybe I need to post a "My Funniest Grits Story." I had no idea that listing them as a favorite food would have such a large reponse.

RedNeckGirl: Glad you enjoyed the tag info.

BarnGoddess: I miss Oklahoma, family, and friends. But I do have the opportunity to visit quite often. Hope you have a chance to share your B'ville pics with us.
Dr. Phil is a favorite of mine, but I do like his in-your-face technique that turns some people off.
E.T pphhoonneehhoommee ! :)

1. The only way I will eat a banana is if it's sandwiched between bread and peanut butter.

2. I wish I could sing too. I pretend OFTEN that I can.

3. I feel a ramble coming on...I'm going to take this opportunity to shut up.


OK so I too was served grits once at a South Carolina diner. I had no idea what to do with them or why anyone would want to eat them. (since I had no idea how to jazz them up). I am thinking - SW - your recipe looks like a lot of work for grits but I would be willing to give them a taste. SO if I EVER win one of your contests, I will ask that my prize be some of those cheese grits. WITH bloody mary of course. ARe you up for that? Consider it a bribe - you know -- getting the chance cook and mix and serve me. Sounds like a perfect plan in my book!!!!!


Susan: Rambling is allowed here. No need to shut up ever. That's actually a quote for myself.

LibraryGoddess: No need to win a contest to get those tasty grits, but do keep "entering." And yes, sounds like a plan to me also. Bring your plannerso we can coordinate at Rotary.


I love the OK story..funny how the rest of the state did not catch on the BBQing thing. And the PMS quote is great as well.
This was a nice little meme.

Silly Hily

HAha. The PMS thing cracked me up. I guess I have something else to fear. :-)
And who knew grits would get so much talk?
I don't mean to ask anything too personal so feel free to tell me to shut up but are you a breast cancer survivor?


Michelle: meme, a new word for me. Internet phenomenon, sometimes called an Internet meme, occurs when somthing relatively unknown becomes hugely popular, often quite suddenly. Who knows? Grits may become our national food. :)

SillyHily: Today I spell your name correcly. I'm surprised I haven't been corrected by now. I would never tell anyone to SU. And thanks for asking...yes, I am a breast cancer survivor of 14 years. YEA !! Jump ! Skip ! Hop!
Many of my upcoming posts will deal with Breast Cancer.

Karmyn R

Oh - Rabbit Proof Fence. I can never watch it again - I shed too many tears the first time through.

ET (it still scares me silly)

And, I've decided you are a VERY brave woman. I've heard from other teachers that Middle School (Jr. High) is the Hardest but most rewarding age to teach. (either you hate teaching them or you love teaching them).

And i'm with Robin - Recipe please for the Lime soup!!!!!!

Silly Hily

Swampwitch!!!!! YAY!!!! Skip, hop, aw heck, I'll even turn some cartwheels. In my younger days I would have done a back handspring for you but now I might break my neck. :-) That is super fabulous. My great grandmother lost her battle with breast cancer, my grandmother is a 50 year survivor (I've done a post on her before way back) and it has come back 3 times in her and she has kicked it to the curb every time b/c she rocks. And, my mom works at Women's Health Center and has for 20 years. They specialize in mammographies and breast cancer. Needless to say with my family history, I'm considered high risk and will begin getting anual mammograms much earlier than a normal woman would. My mom knows a lot about it though so I feel safe. I will be walking in October for Race for the Cure and do every year.
Congrats to you for beating it!!!!!

(Oh, and join gmail and we can chat. :-) It's free and easy.)


KarmynR: Yucatan Lime Soup recipe will be posted soon. Yummy !

SillyHily: Thanks for your commentsabout breast cancer. It's amazing how many are affected by it. Our daugher-in-law's DAD was diagnosed several years ago and is doing fine after treatment. I'm sorry about your great-grandmother. Treatment back then just wasn't as effective. Good for your grandmother. What a survivor she is. I'll have to search your archives. Thank you for walking in Race for the Cure. My daughters run, walk, buy jonquils/daffodils, and donate. What a support team they are.


I love some of your quotes. I love quotes. I have a daily 'thought for the day' email I put out.
I think I know the general area you live in based on a comment you made on my site and one of your favorite sites to visit that is closely tied with your screen name. I won't say it here. But I do love playing detective. I just wish I looked like Katherine on CSI!!
Have a great day SW.
