A little Hugh goes a long way!

Because work is so crazy right now and I am on the road for the next 3 weeks with nary a moment to breathe, my ability to update you dear Internet on my comings and goings and general life stuff is right up there with my ability to walk and chew gum.  In other words - non existent. 
So instead, I give you some pretty things to look at until I can once again sit down and bore you with the trivialities of my existance.

Internet, I am sure that you have seen this because it seems that everyone has!  But holy hannah it sure surprised me!

All I want to do is make over this woman - fix the eyebrows and hair, take her shopping, better make up, tell her to never, ever wear dark hose with a light dress and shoes and lastly, tell her about Spanx when you go on national TV.   I know, I know - I am shallow but then you already know this about me.

You gotta love a good Cinderella story and here is hoping that she can win it all.  But before she does, I do hope that she gets her eyebrows fixed. 


Today is a good day internet and do you know why???  The sun is shining, it is Friday AND I am wearing open-toe shoes for the first time in months!!!
I am one happy girl!  Now if only that damn lottery win would come through tonite - my happiness would be complete!  Fingers crossed!!

Glory be Internet - today is the last day of my work week all thanks to Good Friday!  Oh how I wish that 4 day weeks were what I had everyday (with no cut in pay of course!) - but alas, that is not meant to be. 

Have a great, long weekend everyone and may the Easter Bunny find you wherever you may be!

Good Yontif  Internet (and if you are not Jewish - Happy Passover)!.  It is well documented on this site of my love of all things Passover.  Seriously - what is not to love about this holiday - you eat until you can't move, dinner is comprised mainly of carbs, most of the food is beige and there is lots of laughter!  For me, being a non Jew, it is like a non Christmas, Christmas dinner except there is a lot of reading in Hebrew and other tradtions - none of which involve the Son of God.  Serioulsy - what is not to love about a big meal comprised of mainly carbs!

So Internet I will think of you tonight as I dine on kugel, carrot tsimis, matzoh and blintzes. 

PS - don't worry if you hear an explosion tomorrow morning.  That would be my pants as i try to do them up after eating more than a person really should at one meal!


Good news! Our friend Rob is coming home in 10 days from Afghanistan! Can I get an Amen to that one Internet! He has some stuff to do in a couple of different places and then he is home with his wife Marcie and 2 kids for a month before he has to report back for duty. The sense of relief and happiness that overwhelmed those of us who know him when we found out he was coming home was indescribable.

I admire Marcie so much and also wonder how the eff does she do it? She married him knowing that the Armed Forces were his career choice, knowing that he trained to put himself into harm’s way. How do you watch your partner leave you for a year not knowing if he will ever come home and put his arms around you ever again? How do you function as a married couple some of the time but a single mom the rest of the time?  How do you love the spit out of him all the time but want to kick him in the shin (really hard!)some of the time?

Obviously I am not made of the stuff required to be a military spouse – you have to be a lot nicer person than me and have the ability to put up with way more crap than I ever could. Also, being adjacent to Army green is not good for my complexion – it tends to wash me out.

So thank you for sending the good thoughts way back when - I know that it helped! 

Have a good hump day Internet!

I come out of our house this morning to to go to work only to find that I had left the moon roof open on the car.  Normally, leaving the roof open is this is not a problem as I park it in our garage.  But yesterday - did I do that?  Noperoo I did not.  Guess what else it did last night and this morning?  If you just thought "I bet it rained" you would be right.  Guess how I found out that I left the moon roof open in the car?  If you guessed that my ass told me as I sat in seat covered in rainy wetness - you would be right again! 

So once I moved the damn car, wiped the seats, armrest and dash  - I then went back into the house to change my jeans so that people didn't think I peed my pants while driving to work. 

I have checked around and it is now confirmed - I really am an idiot!

I had recorded a bunch of ‘Inside the Actor’s Studio” on the PVR and watched a couple of the episodes last night. I love the show for a bunch of reasons but mainly that James Lipton is so freakin' obsequious to the stars and so self-promoting is utterly laughable to me. Also, I am a star whore and love to watch those kind of interviews. He ends every interview with the same 10 questions which are based around the Proust Questionnaire and it occurred to me that this would be a good blog post. Here goes!

1. What is your favorite word?

2. What is your least favorite word?

3. What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally?

4. What turns you off creatively, spiritually or emotionally?
Stupidity (see yesterday’s post for my latest rant!)

5. What sound or noise do you love?
My dog yawning first thing in the morning right before he jumps into bed with us.

6. What sound or noise do you hate?
The sound of nail clippers, clipping nails - especially when someone does it in the office (I am not kidding about that one!)

7. What is your favorite curse word?
Fuck (in all its forms – fucker, mother fucker, fuck-a-doodle-doo, you get the drift)
Cocksucker would run a close second – for its wonderful descriptive powers

8. What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
Lottery winner (is so a profession!)

9. What profession would you not like to do?
Doctor/Surgeon (ick on all of the blood, guts and bad wardrobe stuff)

10. If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?
“Didn’t expect to see you here – we thought you had a reservation in the other place”

Now, I can’t be the only one to do this so I now tag KK, Muffy, edder and Emily to do this and then tag 4 or 5 of your favourite people with this. Who knows what could start from this wee blog!


Who is the gorgeous girl?  Go and find out for yourself - you won't be sorry you did!!
Congratulations Mich on your 100th post!

I have many, trust me on that one!  But today, on a day when everything is rubbing my last nerve so effing raw my pet peeve du jour is that someone, who shall remain nameless, in my department (WHO HAS AN EFFIN MBA) uses the word 'irregardless' - ALL.THE.TIME! 

Seriously - just that today just might be enough to tip the scales in favour of me going postal. 

Will keep you all posted!


Today sucks! 
Recessions really suck!
It rained today and I left my umbrella at home!
Tomorrow had better be much better than today or I am going to take my toys and go home!
I am too old for this shiz!!
