Is This a Sign of the Apocalypse??

Oprah is going to have her own channel.
She doesn't even have to run for President.
She'll be able to influence millions all by
having them turn on their TV's.

Oh No They Didn't...

Calling all old ass shanks and ho's Brett
Michaels is looking for love again. Actually
the shanks and ho's have been chosen and it looks
like things kicked off on "Rock of Love 2" last Tuesday
night at 10pm. My question is WHY?????

Why do women want a 40 year old has been rocker
boyfriend or a 150 year old has been rapper boyfriend
in the case of Flavor Flav.

All I can say is....
Yuck! Yuck! Yuck!!!

I Had a Crush on Him...

I had a crush on the 1988 to 1992 version of Christopher Bowman (shown above). He got older and larger (as evidenced in the 2005 photo below). At 40 he was found dead in a budget hotel, likely of a drug overdose. So sad...

I'm Really Angry - Part Two

He killed her. Of course he did. Gary Hilton just couldn't leave Meredith Emerson and her dog alone - during her hike in Vogel State Park. He had to club her to death.

We were all very upset when my sister went for a hike alone, fell and broke her leg, and had to walk her injured self almost two miles to get help. I guess we should be thankful that this guy, or some equally insane asshole wasn't nearby that day.

It makes me scared to leave my own house. I've been paranoid long before this lovely woman lost her life - but it's getting worse. I am scared to go for a walk near my house with my baby because who knows where the next Gary Hilton will be. I don't like being scared but I don't know what else to do. At least in my house I feel a bit safer.

I'm Really Angry - Part One

So she almost cried - big fucking deal. Someone asked her how she keeps it all together and her facade cracked for just a minute while she talked about how passionate she is about helping this country. Her voice wavered when she said she's received countless benefits and advantages from this country and she doesn't want to see our children lose that by going backwards.

People (John Edwards) couldn't wait to leap on her show of emotion and say that we need a person with "resolve" in the White House. So I guess that means someone with no emotion or tear ducts. Might he not "well up" if someone on the trail asked him how it would feel to be President without his wife (should she succumb to the cancer that will ultimately take her life sooner rather then later). Would that emotion make him any less able to be President - NO.

There are other people who think the episode was scripted. I find that theory a bit too elaborate to even address. People who say that obviously have never felt passionately about anything. I've been moved to tears on many occasions but it doesn't mean I'm soft - or that I couldn't be P.O.T.U.S. Not having millions or billions of dollars will ultimately keep me from meeting that goal.

At this point I don't know who is going to get my vote - but it's just so typical that a woman gets labeled "weak" and not "passionate" or "bitch" but not "agressive". It's just so disappointing.

4) Maintain a Happy, Healthy Marriage
5) Spend Less Money
6) Get a Handle on Clutter
7) Get a New Passport

9) Understand that every bad driver
doesn't require comment

Christmas Came and the Goose Got Fatter...

Well it's over, despite our house looking like Christmas morning with the presents still under the tree, the holiday has come and gone. This year was Elizabeth's first Christmas and she was showered with fabulous presents on all fronts. She got clothes of many kinds, some books, toys that stack, toys that squeak and toys that talk. She got a sled and a wonderful hand made quilt and enough ornaments to start her own tree.

I was equally blessed receiving many lovely presents - several books, season 6 & 7 of my favorite show "The Gilmore Girls" on DVD, a new I-Pod Classic (with I-Tunes gift cards), new slippers, a couple of CD's and some delicious candy snacks in my stockings. Don't worry Santa didn't leave my honey out - he got a new golf club, golf shoes, a cargo net for his truck, DVD's, some clothes, a digital picture frame for his desk at work and tons of sweet treats in his stockings too.

We did our share of visiting this holiday season. We had a party at my Mom's on 12/23 with her fun sisters family. We gobbled up copious amounts of yummy food topping it all off with a chocolate fountain as part of the dessert offerings. Then Elizabeth did Christmas Eve church for the first time - which turned out okay. Santa came first thing Christmas morning, followed closely behind by Grammy, Aunt Heidi and Uncle Tony. After the dust and the wrapping paper settled we hit the road to visit with Grammy, Grandpop, Mom-Mom and Pop-Pop. Wednesday (12/26) brought Lauren and Rod to our rainy doorstep for pizza and ornament presents. Then after a few days rest - the new year dawned and we were off for more visiting and eating.

Even though there is let down once the holidays are done - I am always a bit relieved. I'll pack everything back up and our house will return to normal. Or the state of normal we've become used to - since Elizabeth came on the scene.
