Since when did Balls become a fashion accessory?

So, I'm driving down I-80 this morning on my way to my parents house and suddenly I'm drawn to something hanging from the bumper of the car in front of me.

I have to speed up a little because I can't figure out what this crazy thing is flapping in the breeze.

Is it a plastic bag? No.
Is it a dead animal? No.
Is it something hanging out of the trunk? No.

As I get closer, the image becomes more clear...It's balls.

BALLS! Saggy balls are hanging from this car in front of me. It's not even a manly's a Bravada! A Bravada from Iowa no less! (Nothing against people from Iowa).

So, I googled 'Balls hanging from bumper' and I was directed to a webpage called: and there I found all sorts of balls. Red balls, blue balls, black balls, flesh colored balls.

The homepage states that Bumper Nuts are "Beautiful! This is the most ultimate truck accessory around".

Really?! When did balls become a fashion accessory?? Did I miss something?

You can see pictures in the gallery titled The Gonad Gallery. Pictures of fabulous people like this fella here...

There's a classy picture!! I sure hope that was included in his Christmas card to Grandma.

I swear, I wasn't even looking at the road for at least 5 miles because my eyes were drawn to the multi-colored, dangling, balls...swinging back in the wind. If I would of gotten in an accident, I seriously would of told the officer, 'I'm sorry, but the balls distracted me'.

What is this world coming too?!?!

Been there, Done that

Today is Day 1 of my NEW Blog!

I tried doing the whole 'Blogger' thing a couple of years ago when I lived out in California and it was pretty neat. Then, I moved back to Nebraska and nothing exciting happened, so I had no need to blog anymore.

Well, here I am, 3 years later and finally have something to say!!

_Of course, I don't have anything to say RIGHT NOW_

But my time will come...Be patient.

Let me start off by introducing myself. My name is Stephanie K Rhoads (See picture below)

I don't always look like that, but a dumb looking face is usually what I'm rockin' in pictures.

I'm 24, soon to be 25 (in like a month) I live in Omaha, NE and will be moving out of my apartment that I share with my best friend, Lydia...back in with my parents. Wow, 25 and moving back in with your parents?? That seems a little twisted and backwards...actually it's called the 'Boomerang' effect. You know, you leave the nest, live on your own and suddenly come full circle back to where you started. Which will be my parents basement.

I am single (awe!) but I have an active dating life...who am I kidding? I haven't been on a single 'date' this year. But, I've been spending a lot of time with this one guy, who's totally Boss. Boss as in the cool slang from Juno, not boss as in 'He is the Boss of me'.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy reading my random banter, as much as I enjoy writing it. I'll also try to put up daily pictures to help illustrate what I'm talking about.

Until next time...
