2005 in review
I got this little questionnaire from Jude at Showers and Sunflowers whose link I found over at Cristie's. It's meme-ish, so if these things bore you, you know what to do...move along. Anyway, without further dragging of my is...

2005 In Review

1) Was 2005 a good year for you?
I won't say it was bad, but it was stressful. Money is always a big stressor for me, and this year has been no exception. But, money aside, I would say it has been a decent year.

2) What was your favorite moment of the year?
Wow, that is a hard question. Probably Guard Girl winning the State Championship with her winter guard back in March.

3) What was your least favorite moment of the year?
Bubba getting hurt on the job.

4) Where were you when 2005 began?
By myself, (Bubba was at work)"live blogging" the New Year's shows I was watching. (pathetic and sad)

5) Who were you with?
Me, myself and I. (little ones were in bed, oldest was at a friend's house and bubba was at work.)

6) Where will you be when 2005 ends?
In my living room watching the New Years shows waiting for the ball to drop.

7) Who will you be with when 2005 ends?
Hubby. Kids will be in bed and Guard Girl is at a party.

8) Did you keep your new years resolution of 2005?
I only listed 2 here on my blog. I wanted to lose 20 pounds at least. Um, no. Didn't happen. I planned to get my house organized. Nope.

9) Do you have a new years resolution for 2006?
I posted them a few posts ago. Scroll down. ;)

10) Did you breakup with anyone in 2005?

11) Did you make any new friends in 2005?
Several new blog friends who I love!! Sea, Melissa, and Cristie, just to name a few.

12) Who is your favorite new friend?
I can't answer that. :)

13) What was your favorite month of 2005?
February or July. Lots of winter guard and marching band contests to watch.

14) Did you travel outside of your country in 2005?
No. That usually requires flying...and I do not fly.

That's funny.

No, thank goodness.

I miss some of my friends who I used to talk to often.

Drama/tearjerker--The Notebook. Comedy--The Wedding Crashers

19) What was your favorite song from 2005?
"Dream Girl" by The Dave Matthews Band or "Lonely No More" by Rob Thomas (before it got overplayed.)

20) What was your favorite record from 2005?
What's a record? ha ha..funny. I really liked Rob Thomas' "Something To Be" and Gavin DeGraw's "Chariot". Wait...did that come out in 2005? Oh well, I listened to it a lot this year anyway. :)

21) How many concerts did you see in 2005?
That's a BIG FAT ZERO. Ask me how many I missed that I wanted to see?? It's way too depressing to answer.

22) Did you have a favorite concert in 2005?
The one I most wanted to see was Duran Duran.

23) Did you drink a lot of alchohol in 2005?
I probably had 2 raspberry margaritas.

24) Did you do a lot of drugs in 2005?
Who made these questions up?? Does Tylenol count?

25) How many people did you sleep with in 2005?
My shared a bed with is a different story. Husband and 2 kids often.

26) Did you do anything you are ashamed of this year?
um...nothing comes to mind.

27) What was the worst lie someone told you in 2005?

Watching my oldest doing well in everything. Grades, Guard, etc...

I'm sure SOMETHING embarrassing happened this year...

hmm...I would keep Bubba from getting injured.

34.) The best thing that happened to you in 2005?
I celebrated my 15 year wedding anniversary with my husband.

35) What are your plans for 2006?
I really just want to be happier in general.

Thursday Thirteen

Thirteen Things about ANGIE

1. I'm off work today and tomorrow. Yay! I have to work Saturday, 7-3. Boo! But, I'm off Sunday and Monday. Yay!

2. So glad to get Christmas over with. When one is unorganized, as I am, it is just not really a fun holiday.

3. I already posted a list of New Year's Resolutions but I have thought of a few more. I might post those later.

4. I've straightened the house and started laundry today. Huge accomplishment. the laundry is so far behind. It's at that stage now, where the night before a work day or a school day, I am scrambling to throw in a load of just enough stuff for everyone to get by on the next day. Even then, I am usually digging for two matching socks for each kid and a pair of underwear that actually covers Tater's bottom without looking like a thong!

5. I am currently watching "Witness" starring Harrison Ford as I type this. I can also hear hubby snoring. He went back to bed a few minutes ago since Baby J woke us up very early today emptying and refilling his TIN of dominoes over and over and over right outside our bedroom door!

6. Speaking of sleep...Guard Girl got a new Queen sized bed for Christmas. An upgrade from a single day bed. Now, in our "back room" AKA the laundry room, Bubba has his own little area where he gets ready for work. He has a desk and all his clothes back there and he also had a loveseat back there. Our recliner bit the dust this week. It wasn't the greatest quality and just got beat down since Bubba had his surgery. There for a while he spent pretty much 24/7 (I HATE that phrase) in it. So, the loveseat came back into the living room and the recliner went to landfill heaven. make this long story even more boring, the daybed made it's way to Bubba's area where the loveseat was. Yeah, he slept in it night before last. The best sleep he has had in months. We've become that old married couple who have separate beds. Nah, it's just because, we too, need a new bed. Ours causes him lots of pain at his surgery site.

7. NOT speaking of beds...I still need to read today's newspaper. It's sitting here in actual paper and ink format.

8. After this weekend, I am back to being really, really good! The past two weeks have been I didn't weigh in on Monday. I want to be thinner! I have to get focused. I need to talk to Shane. He is trying to get back to his pre law school look and he tries to keep me motivated in my struggle.

9. There really isn't any way that one person's feet and legs can be as dry as mine are right this minute. Lotion is my friend. I should use that friend very very very often.

10. I am feeling guilty right now for not being at work. I just talked to my friend and co-worker, S, and she said one person called in today, so that leaves her and one other person today. Not a good thing since all the doctor's offices are back in full swing by now after the Christmas holiday. But, you know what? I don't feel guilty enough to actually go in to work! :) I've worked in those conditions before and probably will again. They can handle it..even if it does suck.

11. I've got a couple of posts in my head right now for later. I hope I don't forget them. The likelihood that I will? About 99%. Perhaps I should write the ideas down. But that would mean reaching up and getting a pen and paper off the shelf above the computer. Right now? I don't feel like it.

12. Day before yesterday at work, I had a flat tire. I got there ok, but when a coworker returned from lunch she told me that rear passenger tire was completely flat! Seems I had a piece of metal in the side. The fun never ends around here.

13. Don't forget to click on my renter AND read his guest post below this one!! I was pretty impressed with old Chuck and his views on women and being a feminist. Go read it. Now! Before you forget. When you are done, click his thumbnail on the side bar.

Why in the world does Angie rent to this guy?!

Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the water, Angie goes and rents her blog out to me, The Fat Boy. Now, why in the world would a nice woman, a giving mother, a devoted wife, a trusted member of the Housewife Mafia, rent her blog to a perverted heathen like me? And the answer is...

I'm a feminist.

At first glance, one would look at my blog and see nothing but a pig. Some goofy frat boy, trying to make people laugh, and look at a jiggle here or there. He objectifies women! How terrible is that? But I know from my experience, there are a lot of women in the world who wish they were "objectified" a little bit more.

If I am a pig, a sexist... then what exactly is Madison Avenue? Personally, I love women of all shapes and sizes. However my personal inclination is to look towards a woman a bit curvier than the norm. I love naturally curvy women. I think that they are beautiful. Cosmo thinks they need to put down the Hagen-Daas, and get on the step machine.

How can a woman watch an hour of television, or read a magazine, and feel attractive these days, unless she is a size 3? When the media beats into your head for hours upon hours every day for your entire life, that "fat" is not sexy, what is a woman to believe?

I believe that women who sustain their lives on a half a bagel a day are not at all attractive. I fail to understand how one can look at a magazine ad, see a woman wearing 50 pounds of tacky makeup (in a design never before seen in public), with her ribs showing... with an expression of detachment... and see sexy. It simply does not compute.

So call it how you want to. If you want to think that I am a sexist pervert, well so be it. I'll keep doing what I do, and have fun doing it. I remember reading a quote from a fashion designer once, who explained the reason he didnt make clothes bigger than a size 7 is because he didn't think women should ever be bigger than a size 7. And I am the sexist? I'll make a deal. The fashion world, and the "beautiful" people can keep the size 7's and below. I'll take the size 9's. And the 11's.... the 13's.... 15's....

Ten on Tuesday (and other stuff)
I always plan to do the 10 on Tuesday every week, but usually end up forgetting all about it. Anyway, this one I really like so here it is...*que trumpets* my 10 on Tuesday!!!

Image hosted by

Today's topic...10 New Year's Resolutions

1.Read more. (at least 2 books--with pages and words!-- a month. doesn't sound like much I know, but, I have almost completely stopped reading and that is just not me.)
2.The EVER present resolution... Lose Weight.
3.Get my house organized. It's out of control with clutter.
4.To not let things and people at work stress me out so much.
5.Organize my scrap stuff.
6.Organize all my photos.
7.Send birthday cards and Christmas cards.
8.Walk for exercise on a regular basis.
9.Have more dates with my husband
10.Get and STAY caught up on the laundry.

In other news, Guard Girl almost burnt the house down. Well, ok, it wasn't THAT's the aftermath...
Picture me frantically ripping at a farking box of baking soda that WOULD. NOT. OPEN. GG finally took a knife to it as I watched the flames get larger and pictured the entire house reduced to glowing red embers. No less than 3 smoke alarms going off. Bubba walking in from the garage to the smell of smoke and seeing the mess. Fun with Ficken Chingers.

Oscar the Grouch="that green guy who lives in the garbage."--Tater Tot

I had something else to blog. Can't remember.

I'm tired. Click my renter.

Diary of a Fat Boy meets a fat girl's Ficken Chingers...(oh that sounds a little dirty)
Ok..I need to help my new renter out a little by singing his "praises" to speak. It's Chuck from over at "Diary of a Fat Boy." Chuck is one cool guy...however **disclaimer alert** he has quite the obsession with boobies. "Big real boobies" as he says. So, if non-nude photos of boobies bothers you, don't click. But, if you really want a laugh or two..with a somewhat serious post thrown in just for sh***s and giggles..go visit the Fat Boy's diary! Oh, and if you happen to be a fan of pro wrestling, Chuck's your man. I "met" Chuck over at Blog Explosion on the Shout Box there a while back. I bugged the crap out of sweet talked him into making me a Halloween banner for Blog Explosion and now he can't get rid of me. ;) Go visit the Chuckster and give him massive clicks to make it worth the credits he spent to rent from me! Chuck, Chuck, Bo Buck, Banana Fana....ah, you know the rest...

Merry Christmas to all and to all....a good night
*SIGH* It's over. Kids are in bed. I'm tired.

We had a great Christmas! The kids all slept in Guard Girl's brand new bed (a christmas present. Hey, don't look at me. She wanted it!) last night and I actually finished all the wrapping BEFORE 3am this year! This is no small feat for me. Of course it did help that Christmas Eve fell on a Saturday and I didn't have to work all day. Anyway, the kids didn't wake up until about 7 or 7:30, so that was a good thing. They were pretty excited about all their toys. Since I am too tired to actually tell any amusing stories, I will post PICTURES!! :)

Guard Girl and the shaggy boyfriend, Drummer Boy, on Christmas Eve.

New haircut and kool-aid 'stache.

New jammies for everyone!

More pictures, tomorrow. Bed time now. Merry Christmas to you all!

an udder one
Yeah..can you tell I'm bored tonight?

How You Live Your Life

You are honest and direct. You tell it like it is.
You're laid back and chill, but sometimes you care too much about what others think.
You prefer a variety of friends and tend to change friends quickly.
You tend to dream big, but you worry that your dreams aren't attainable.

Explains me almost to a T.

ALL FOR NAUGHT? I hope naught not.
My weigh-in on Monday was good. I lost an additional 1.8 lbs bringing my total lost so far to 8.4. After this week? I doubt the scales will be kind. Carry-in at work yesterday...carry-in at work food everywhere!!! I have been a bad girl. I need to get up and get right back on the horse....but I am afraid that horse is running waaaaay too fast for me this week. Monday. Monday will be better. Right?

I was driving home yesterday and I asked the kids (Tater and Baby J) if they remembered why we celebrate Christmas. They said no, so I was explaining it all to them...Mary, Baby Jesus, gifts, etc...At the end of all that, Tater said, "Hmm. That's cute." I'm not real sure she gets the concept...what do you think? :)

a question
This is something I posted elsewhere but thought I might as well post it here, too...

When did it become "cool" to be a complete and total bitch (or jerk)? When did it become funny to put others down? To be mean to other people all the time? To belittle others and make them feel small and stupid and ignorant? It's getting really old and I am just sitting back and waiting for the trend to be over. If it really is cool and funny to be bitchy all the time, then I don't want to be cool OR funny. I'll just be me--a complete and total nice, not funny regular kind of girl.

Seriously, I really want to know. Can someone pinpoint the time that declaring oneself a "Bitch" became the thing to do? Inquiring minds want to know.

Merry Christmas to you all!!! :)


PS I should clarify, this is about a trend I see in the "blog world" in general. Pride in being a bitch or a complete jerk just seems to be the norm. However, this also has to do with a couple of specific bloggers and/or blogs.

Eye candy, move along. nothing to see here
Ok, ladies, while watching CSI:NY last week, I was thinking, "Day-um...there are some beautiful men on this show!" What better way to showcase them than to BLOG them. :) So, without further ado, I give you...THE MEN OF CSI:NY.

I'll start with the "old guy" on the Mr. Gary Sinise. I know, I know, he isn't a traditional beautiful man, but he is on my "list" and there is just something sexy about him.(that's Melina Kanakaredes with him)

Next is Eddie Cahill. Killer eyes! He is much smarter on this show than he was as "Tag" on Friends.

Carmine Giovinazzo adds some comic relief on the show. He has some great lines. What a cool name, huh?

Finally, there is Hill Harper. They moved him from medical examiner to being a CSI and the show is much better for it. Plus, that just means we get to look at him more. ;)

This now completes the eye-candy portion of this blog. We will return to regular blog programming at a later time. Thank you and please exit the bus in an orderly fashion. Please come again.

Dirty minds
Yes, I know I have a dirty mind...but tell me this doesn't look like a Spiderman penis!!

My new renter will be so proud to share space here...what with wonderful posts such as this one! My latest tenant (just moved in minutes ago) is Chatty from "Watchu Tawkin Bout." She is a funny girl, though I will warn you, she has a potty mouth so if that is nacho thing, don't clicky. She feels the same way I do about replacing the word "Christmas" with "Holiday." Not gonna do it. Check her out, please. Clicky her thumbnail and make it worth her credits to stay here this week. Thanks in advance. (hey, I gotta try anything I can to get clicks...and readers...for my tenants.)

Five weird habits of highly weird children
I got tagged for a good one by good ol' Homer Jay who admittedly has some weird children. However, I may be able to top him. Here are Five Weird Habits of MY Highly Weird Children.

1)Guard Girl, the oldest at 14, eats EVERYTHING with a fork. A FORK!!! We're talking ice cream and soup. I'm not kidding.

2)Baby J, the youngest at 2 years 9 months, must line multiples of anything up into rows, lines, columns whatever you want to call it. This includes cars, stuffed dogs, poker chips (blame Bubba who gave them a box to play with), M&Ms and the list goes on. AND? If there are different colors of said multiples, then they also have to be subdivided into colors.

3)When we get home every evening, Tater Tot, the middle one at 4 years old, IMMEDIATELY begins her strip tease. Her coat comes off in the kitchen...then her shoes, then her socks, then her pants....and then we have to stop her so no other pieces of clothing come off. Sometimes, she runs in the house so quickly and begins the ritual, that by the time I actually close my car door and walk to the house, she is practically nude. She did NOT get that from her mother.

4)Though he doesn't do it so much now, Baby J does something that might be hard for me to properly describe. When he is trying to tell us something that requires a lot of thought for him to say the right words..or even when he is waiting for something that we are preparing for him (like a snack or a drink) he moves from one foot to the other touching one foot to the opposite one over and over. (I swear he is borderline OCD.)

5)Baby J kicks all covers off no matter how many times we re-cover him at night, but then he will lie on his side and bunch up his blankie and put it between his legs.

So there you have it. Those are the ones I thought of off the top of my head. I'm sure as soon as I hit publish I will think of at LEAST 5 more. :) Ok, who to tag, who to tag...OK, I have to tag my Cristie. She loves a good tag any time..and she has kids so she will like this one. Hmmm..who else.. how about Kellie and soapbox.SUPERSTAR. Ok, that is all the torture I will inflict for now. If anyone else with kids wants to do it, go for it..but tell me so I can come visit and see how weird your kids are, too!

patting myself on the back
I gotta give a shout out to....ME!! After a week of being good..but not bothering to go to the store to buy actual non-fattening foods...I weighed in this morning and I lost 6.6 pounds!!! That is what I get for avoiding sugar, for the most part, for a week!! This totally gives me motivation for the week to come.
Praise in the form of comments showered upon my blog will be accepted starting NOW! :)

my christmas wish list
Here is my Christmas wish list...if only Santa were rich. :)

1)I want an iPod. At the rate I am going, I'll be buying one for 10 bucks at a garage sale, hoping it works, only to get it home to find it full of Marilyn Manson tunes that won't erase.

2)A second car for the family. This one car stuff is getting OLD.

3)A new wardrobe. I need it. Seriously. You should see my choices right now.

4)Smell goods from Bath & Body Works.

5)The new INXS CD. I've heard all the songs. Some are good. A few are eh. I still want it. (that one and many others.)

6)Lost, Desperate Housewives, The Muppet Show, etc etc etc..on DVD.(the list is long)

7)A new digital camera with a big old zoom.

My year in review
This is a meme. Sorry if you hate them, but I have a certain fondness for them. I stole this one from my girl Monty who actually wants to send it to the place where memes die, but I am going to keep it alive just to spite her. is how this meme works. Go into your archives from the year 2005 and post the first sentence of the first post from each month.

This could either be fun...or incredibly boring. Here goes...


February--"Recipe for the chocolate chip cheeseball is forthcoming..just not in this post. :)"

March--"Ok, that Janay chick needs to go on American Idol."

April--"Weigh-in was yesterday at work."

May--"I can't stop singing and grooving my boo-tay around to Gwen Stefani's "Hollaback girl."

June--"Hmmm...funny..the acronym spells SW Rots."

July--"Ok, so it's slightly askew, but I had to snap this picture as I drove by."

August--"I was tagged a while back by the most wonderful Kellie and I think I am ready to do it finally."

September--"I always wondered if one of our children would be a cheerleader...I just didn't think it would be this one..."

October--"So, we're going into Wally World a few nights ago and we see this family going in.

November--"Miss Tater as a pretty purple fairy." (this post was photos only with captions.)

December--"I am ticked off."

Doesn't really say much about me, huh? Just shows you that I write about nothing...and everything. :)

Ok, I AM going to tag a couple of people for this. Tara because I always tag her and Cristie 'cause I know she usually likes memes. I'll leave everyone else alone, unless of course you just WANT to do it really badly. Just let me know so I can come see what yours looks like.

PS Don't forget to click and visit my renter over there on the sidebar. I am not above begging for clicks as you can see.

What is wrong with this picture? (and other stuff)
Ok, tell me what is wrong with this picture...

Lots of snow...child with no coat on...child BAREFOOTED!!! Yes, folks, that is my son who ran out on the porch on Thursday evening with daddy to see how much snow had fallen so far. (pay no attention to the porch railings that need to be painted.) My husband and my son are crazy!

So, we ended up with something like 4-6 inches of snow around here, not counting the big old drifts from the wind. I had to back through a great big one on Friday coming out of the garage. The roads were pretty bad, too. Now, I just want it all to melt! I do like snow and winter, but, you know, on Christmas Eve. :)
My children with the cheese faces.

Speaking of Christmas...I am not ready. I haven't wrapped anything and I am not done shopping. Ugh.
Before I bore you any more, I have to end this sad little post. But first, I must mention my new tenant on the sidebar. That would be none other than the Palm Tree Princess AKA LC. Please click on her little thumbnail over there and visit her. You won't regret it. She's way cool and she's looking all Christmasy right now on her blog. Right now, she is waaay busy so she would probably appreciate a new reader or two and some comments. Click it people!! Make it worth her while to rent from me!!

One more thing...I haven't done one of these things in ages...most people hate them..but who cares?? ;)
Your Blog Should Be Purple

You're an expressive, offbeat blogger who tends to write about anything and everything.
You tend to set blogging trends, and you're the most likely to write your own meme or survey.
You are a bit distant though. Your blog is all about you - not what anyone else has to say.

First, my favorite color has always been purple, so...yeah. Second, it does describe me pretty well...except for the "tend to set blogging trends." Um, no, that isn't really me.

Oh, oh, wait! I must mention Survivor. (SPOILER ALERT in case you haven't watched this past weeks episode)

Good riddance to Cindy and her I-talk-through-my-nose voice! She shouldn't have bragged so much about that ^#%@&$( car! I think she should have given cars to the others. Strategically, I think that would have been the way to go. My feeling is, they probably would have given her a car later just for giving them to the others. Alas, we'll never know. Her little remark about "I'll be looking at the stars through the sunroof of my new car." They just all kind of stared at her. 'Twas hardly a burn, Cindy. Bye bye. Judd still needs to be smacked even though he is only on the jury. His facial expressions and all the nodding and stuff needs to be stopped.
Steph needs to go. GO GO GO!! The others need to vote her off if she doesn't win immunity next. I will crack up if Lydia makes it to the final two somehow. That little chick has worked her tail off the whole time. She never wins challenges, but she works her behind off trying to. Rafe has been a good player and I like Danni more now than I did a while back. At this point, as long as Steph doesn't win, I'll be happy.
Ok, that is all. Toodles.

Lost no more
Guess what I'm doing??? Watching the "Lost" episodes that I had recorded on the DVR!! Woo hoo! It's working again. Take a guess how Bubba "fixed." Uh huh...the good old unplug and plug it back in trick. Duh! :) About Lost, though...I cried like a baby when our raft castaways and the tailies showed up on the beach. I do NOT like Ana Lucia. She just messes up the whole vibe of the front end survivors.

It is 6 degrees here right now. Ok, I'm done with winter now. K? Thanks.

I have successfully stayed away from sugar for 3 days now. If you really knew me, you would know how hard it is for me. I must confess to one miniature hersheys today..but I think it still counts because any other time I would have eaten many, many, many of those wonderful rich, creamy chocolatey rectangles wrapped in silvery christmasy wrappers...huh? Oh, yeah. Ok, so anyway, I've done pretty well for three days. :)

I managed to mangle our vehicle today by running over a curb whilst turning into the high school parking lot. I was going roughly...5 miles an hour. So, it all happened in LOUD slow motion. Now it sounds like there is a gigantic hole in the muffler or something. Yippee. Such is the joy of my life. We won't speak of the meltdown it caused me.

Finally, after 3 days of having to be at work at 6am...I get to go in at my regular time tomorrow. Yay! I don't do early mornings well.

Oh, yeah..gotta tell you about the other blog I am a part of now. You all should go read it if you get the chance. First, I have to remind you that I am a Blog Explosion junkie. Well, I am actually addicted to the shoutbox over there. I have "met" some really great (and crazy) people there. So, anyway, there are a bunch of regulars at the shout box and now one of them has started a blog that we all can contribute to whenever we want. It's called the The Shoutbox Hall of Fame. It's pretty cool so far. I have only posted once, but I will probably write something again soon.

I am soooo far behind on reading my favorite if you haven't gotten a comment from me in a while..I'll be back..I promise!!

Ok, don't on my renter! :)

10 on tuesday
Since it is Tuesday and I have been hurting for blog content lately...I thought I would do a 10 On Tuesday to fill some space.

10 Household Chores You Hate
(oh where to begin!)

1)Cleaning the toilet. The all time grossest thing EVER. For some reason, ours gets really, really dirty. (It's Bubba's fault, not mine!)
2)Cleaning hair from bath drain. This one is really a tie with #1.
3)Dishes. I hate the thought of floating soggy food bits so I wear rubber gloves when I do dishes.
4)Folding and hanging laundry.
5)Dusting. Tedious and it's dusty again in MINUTES!
7)Cleaning my kids room. Sooo much stuff, so little storage space!
8)Cleaning windows.
9)Sorting laundry.
10)Cleaning out my closet! get the picture..I hate housework. Probably because my mother was a housework NAZI!! Look in any diary I ever kept back then and you will see multiple entries about how mad I was at mom for having to do housework all the time. :)

In other news..I saw my reflection (or should that be, reflekshin, Shane?) in the window at work this morning and only one word came to mind...ROUND! I am officially gross and disgusting and the scales agree. I'm trying to be good again so I can shed some F-A-T. Ugh.

It's flippin' COLD outside! Right now it's 15 degrees, but is dropping.

I need money. $$ Anyone want to help a girl out?? Anyone wanna be my sugar daddy on the side. Bubba said he didn't care!! Honest!;)

Don't forget to click on my girl Soapbox.superstar over on the sidebar!!!

the end

I'm lost without it
This post fortified with less kiddie pictures!!

I am ticked off. My DVR won't play the things I have recorded for the past 2 weeks. And now?? I can't watch the last two weeks episodes of "LOST" that I recorded!!! AHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!! I have carefully and successfully avoided all contact with blogs talking about Lost for TWO WEEKS!!!! I think I am going to hyperventilate. I need a little brown paper bag.

In other tv news, Judd is gone on Survivor!! YEEEE HAAAAA! Please, Survivor gods...make them get rid of Stephanie next!!! Please, please, please!!!

On ER, I am thrilled that Luka and Abby are doin' the dirty again, finally. Perhaps they will both get to smile once an episode. Speaking of ER, the CEO of the company I work for, and his wife will make an appearance on the show sometime in January. Not speaking parts, but they will be playing a Doctor and a Nurse. Go figure.

Gray's Anatomy continues to be a highly entertaining show. Makes me laugh week after week. I just want to strangle Mrs. Dr. Shepard with her red ponytail. Otherwise, I like all the other characters. I still like Dr McDreamy even if he didn't choose anorexic ho-bag reminds me of Ally McBeal Meredith.

I crave silence right now. I want a dark room with no noise. Anyone know where I can find one??

PS Go visit my brand new tenant...Soapbox.superstar!!! She's hella cool! I'll write more about her later, but until then, clicky her thumbnail on the sidebar.
