Just Tuesday

It's only Tuesday? Damn!.....
As a follow up to yesterday's post about me buying my dog a new sweater I found this quote:

"If you are a dog and your owner suggests that you wear a sweater, suggest that (s)he wear a tail." Fran Lebowitz, US writer and humorist (1950 - )

It's AARRGGHH Monday again. And it snowed a few inches last night!That'll make for a double AARRGGHH day. A supersized AARRGGHH Monday. Get my drift? Hehe.

Flight of ideas:

I bought my lil pug dog, affectionally known as Snot, (not his real name) a new coat for's a lil pancho sweater, black, with lil beige fringe....goes with his coloring...I think it looks great, but he hangs his lil head down when I put it on as if saying..."Mom, do I really have to wear this?"

When did it become in vogue to hang lights on one's house for Valentine's Day?

How come people put their garbage cans in the street? and if not there, right in the middle of the sidewalk?

Why did a squirrel drop a bagel on my head from a tree?

Oh I go, into the snow
To trudge onward to the show
To work my fingers to the bone
Poor me, poor me...

I had a very busy day yesterday. I put off everything I had to do during the week and just had to do them yesterday.... Chores, errands, etc. I went to the bookstore and bought a new cook book...."One Pot Meals". I'm always looking for short cuts. I found this recipe for beef stew and made it last night...and although it was a completely different recipe from my Mom's, it turned out to be deliscious!!!! It had shitake mushrooms, orange rind, burgandy cooking wine, plum tomatoes and of course, beef.....what a taste it had, if I must say so myself. I love making stews during the winter.

On another note, I was in the state of panic all week because I asked my accountant two weeks ago to mail my tax return papers (from last year) to me and as of Friday I hadn't received them!

He swore he mailed them to the right address and insinuated it was my fault for having him mail them instead of me picking them up. All sorts of things went through my mind. Someone out there was going to become me! Steal my idenity!! OMG...I've made it this far in life without this! I asked everyone I knew what I should do. Advise was given to put fraud alerts on all my credit cards and my social security number (my hub is involved too, I didn't tell him about this yet). But you know something, deep down in my heart I just had a feeling that this was going to alright. I don't know where that feeling was coming from.

So yesterday I drove to the accountant's office to pick up the "duplicates". He come out of his office and in a sheepishly low voice says "it was my fault". I asked him to repeat that please a little louder. Seems he wrote the wrong address on the envelope.....and it was returned to his office. I was so relieved but I really wanted to kill him! The jerk! And for him to actually imply that I was the dope to have them mailed in the first place! Well, we know who we won't be using as an accountant anymore.

To borrow from Michael C: The thing I learned this week: "not to ask my accountant to mail anything to me and to stop myself from commiting murder."

A Message from George

(whose wife recently died)
Isn't it amazing that George Carlin - gross and mouthy comedian of the 70's and 80's - could write something so very eloquent...and so very appropriate.

A wonderful Message by George Carlin:

The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider freeways , but narrower viewpoints.

We spend more, but have less, we buy more, but enjoy less. We have bigger houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more experts, yet more problems, more medicine, but less wellness. We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom.We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often. We've learned how to make a living, but not a life.

We've added years to life not life to years. We've been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor. We conquered outer space but not inner space. We've done larger things, but not better things. We've cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul. We've conquered the atom, but not our prejudice. We write more, but learn less. We plan mor e, but accomplish less. We've learned to rush, but not to wait. We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more c opies than ever, but we communicate less and less.

These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion, big men and small character, steep profits and shallow relationships. These are the days of two incomes but more divorce, fancier houses, but broken homes. These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway morality, one night stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything from cheer, to quiet, to kill. It is a time when there is much in the showroom window and nothing in the stockroom. A time when technology can bring this letter to you, and a time when you can choose either to share this insight, or to just hit delete...

Remember; spend some time with your loved ones, because they are not going to be around forever.
Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks up to you in awe, because that little person soon will grow up and leave your side.

Remember, to give a warm hug to the one next to you, because that is the only treasure you can give with your heart and it doesn't cost a cent.

Remember, to say, "I love you" to your partner and your loved ones, but most of all mean it. A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt when it comes from deep inside of you.

Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment for someday that person will not be there again.

Give time to love, give time to speak! And give time to share the precious thoughts in your mind.
AND ALWAYS REMEMBER: Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

And if you don't like what this says....Who cares?

Twinhead's Shoes

I know you were all waiting with bated breath to set your eyes on the wedding shoes of my friend and Twinhead...Well here they all their glory. She went without me to buy them ya know and I'm sitting here wondering why. ;-( However, she texted messaged me every morning at 6AM to show me each pair. There I was in the shower and when my cell phone rings that early I think it's some sort of real emergency...but nooooo it's pictures of shoes!!! Well I guess that constitutes an emergency on Twinhead's part. I can't focus that early...the only thing I've got myself trained to do at that hour is post on my blog. ahahahah. But I'm willing to bet that she gets at least three more pairs before the wedding day. Maybe I'll set up a blog pool...something like March Madness (if people google march madness please be advised this is a disclaimer of any sort of gambling on basketball games ok????). Well I sure hope she's set for the big day. Look for further updates down the road......

If I could turn back time, I'd be sitting in Mom's kitchen on a Sunday afternoon enjoying a big hot bowl of beef stew (which I have yet to duplicate) or a plate of spaghetti and home made sauce and meatballs (which I have been able to duplicate), listening to police and fire calls come in on her police scanner.

Long before reality TV my Mom always had her police scanner going. This was her IPOD, always listening for disaster....this was her rock and roll! I had always thought it rather eerie that I had a Mom who, when we were kids, would rouse us from our beds in the middle of the night to watch a house on fire down the street. Now much later, her police scanner replaces her treks in the night. Instead she would just call me every hour or so when she'd hear that the police or fire units were in my neck of the woods or my brother's to see if we were ok. She'd drive us all crazy I tell ya. But this was her excitement. If I could turn back time I would laugh, like I do now, instead of pulling out my hair every time she'd call.

My Mom's birthday was yesterday. They had a great lil party for her at the Nursing Home. She laughed and danced and had fun. Her mind is back when she was a child. She's happy. She doesn't remember the police scanner tho....which may be a good thing!

Me Jane

New information for Women:

A study conducted by UCLA's Department of Psychiatry has revealed that the kind of face a woman finds attractive on a man can differ depending on where she is in her menstrual cycle.
For example: If she is ovulating, she is attracted to men with rugged and masculine features. However, if she is menstruating, or menopausal, she tends to be more attracted to a man with duct tape over his mouth and a spear lodged in his chest while he is on fire.
No further studies are expected.

A. A. D. D. - Age Activated Attention Deficit Disorder.

This is how it manifests:

I decide to water my garden.

As I turn on the hose in the driveway, I look over at my car and decide it needs washing.

As I start toward the garage, I notice that there is mail on the porch table that I brought up from the mailbox earlier.

I decide to go through the mail before I wash the car. I lay the keys down on the table, put the junk mail in the garbage can under the table, and notice that the can is full.

So, I decide to put the bills back on the table and take out thegarbage first.

But then I think, since I'm going to be near the mailbox when I take out the garbage anyway, I may as well pay the bills first.

I take my checkbook off the table, and see that there is only one check left.

My extra checks are in my desk in the study, so I go inside the house to my desk where I find the can of Coke that I had been drinking.

I'm going to look for my checks, but first I need to push the Coke aside so that I don't accidentally knock it over.

I see that the Coke isgetting warm, and I decide I should put it in the refrigerator to keep it cold.

As I head toward the kitchen with the Coke a vase of flowers on the counter catches my eye--they need to be watered.

I set the Coke down on the counter, and I discover my reading glasses that I've been searching for all morning.

I decide I better put them back on my desk, but first I'm going to water the flowers.

I set the glasses back down on the counter, fill a container with water and suddenly I spot the TV remote. Someone left it on the kitchen table.

I realize that tonight when we go to watch TV, I will be looking for the remote, but I won't remember that it's on the kitchen table, so Idecide to put it back in the den where it belongs, but first I'll water the flowers.

I pour some water in the flowers, but quite a bit of it spills on the floor.

So, I set the remote back down on the table, get some towels and wipe up the spill.

Then I head down the hall trying to remember what I was planning to do.

At the end of the day: The car isn't washed. The bills aren't paid. There is a warm can of Coke sitting on the counter. The flowers don't have enough water. There is still only one check in my check book. I can't find the remote. I can't find my glasses. I don't remember what I did with the car keys. Then when I try to figure out why nothing got done today. I'm really baffled because I know I was busy all day long, and I'm really tired. I realize this is a serious problem, and I'll try to get some help for it, but first I'll check my e-mail and catch up on my blogs!

Don't laugh -- if this isn't you yet, your day is coming!

My Brother

"If you have made a mistake, there is always another chance for may have a fresh start any moment you chose, for this thing we call "failure" is not the falling down, but the staying down." Mary Pickford

Accept the pain, cherish the joys, resolve the regrets; then can come the best of benedictions - "If I had my life to live over, I'd do it all the same".
Joan McIntosh

This is a repost from one I did last year... and because it's January, the month of my brother's and Mom's and my grandmother's birthdays, I get to thinking a lot about the past..........

Now, some of you may think this is strange, but i believe it's a story that has to be told. My brother's birthday just passed and it brought to mind something that I believe is very funny and something he would think comical too. You see my brother passed away a year and a half ago and we really did not part on such great terms.
That being said, prior to the two of us becoming "adults" (and I use that term loosely) we were very close. As a matter of fact, we were clowns....always pulling pranks on everyone inside and outside the family and we did have a loving history together up to a point.
Well, a point came in my life where everything I held to be safe and secure and pretty much settled blew up. My Mom was diagnosed with Alzheimer's, 9/11 happened (I lost some really close friends and co-workers), my best friend died, my brother started to use drugs and eventually became homeless, AND, (big and) I left my husband.
Needless to say, I did seek therapy(lol). Which brings me back to the point of this whole story.......
While in therapy (before my brother passed) I did talk about him and our relationship so my therapist got to know him thru me.
When he died, he was cremated, at his request. day as I was going into my therapist's office I hear a honking horn and a woman exited her car and started to walk towards me. At first I didn't recognize her but as she approached I saw it was the Funeral Director from the place where we had my brother laid out. She told me she had his ashes in the car and asked me if I wanted them now or should she wait until I stopped by her office.
I said sure, give them to me now.
As she went to the car to retrieve them, I thought, hmmmm I wonder what these are going to look like because i was on my way into the doctor's office and didn't want to walk back to my car with this "package".
She came back and handed me a plainly wrapped brown papered package. Sure was heavy too!!!!!! I took it and thought ....Wow this is very strange....and then said "Hi Bill".....and chuckled to myself.
So now I enter the doc's office........he's a really nice guy btw. I sit down and he notices i have what appears to be a very heavy package in my lap (you see I don't know what to do with it, I'm thinking "should i put this on his desk or on the floor"?
Since I've never had the occasion of "transporting" someone's ashes...this is all new to me.
Well.......I wound up placing it on his desk. The doctor looked quizically at the package....I start to talk assuring him it was not a bomb, and asked him: "Remember me mentioning my brother Bill?" and he said "Of course"!
I said: "Well I'd like you to meet him!"

I was having trouble with my computer.
So I called Bob, the computer guy, to come over.
Bob, clicked a couple of buttons and solved the problem.
He gave me a bill for a minimum service call.
As he was walking away, I called after him, "So, what was wrong?" He replied, "It was an ID ten T error."
I didn't want to appear stupid, but
nonetheless inquired, "An ID ten T error?
What's that in case I need to fix it again?"
Bob grinned... "Haven't you ever heard of an ID ten T error before?"
"No," I replied.
"Write it down," he said, "and I think you'll figure it out."
So I wrote down.
I D 1 0 T
I used to like Bob.

Do you ever wonder what the differences are between the sexes?

Here's some thoughts.

A man will pay $2 for a $1 item he needs.
A woman will pay $1 for a $2 item that she doesn't need, but it's on sale.

A woman has the last word in any argument.
Anything a man says after that... is the beginning of a new argument.

Women love cats.
Men say they love cats, but when women aren't looking, men kick cats..

A woman worries about the future until she gets a husband.
A man never worries about the future until he gets a wife.

A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend.
A successful woman is one who can find such a man.

A woman marries a man expecting he will change, but he doesn't.
A man marries a woman expecting that she won't change and she does..

Men wake up as good-looking as they went to bed.
Women somehow deteriorate during the night.

Ah, children. A woman knows all about her children. She knows about dentist appointments and romances, best friends, favorite foods, secret fears and hopes and dreams.
A man is vaguely aware of some short people living in the house.

Any married man should forget his mistakes. There's no use in two people remembering the same thing.

A couple drove down a country road for several miles, not saying a word.An earlier discussion had led to an argument and neither of them wanted to concede their position. As they passed a barnyard of mules, jack asses, and pigs, the husband askedsarcastically, "Relatives of yours?" "Yep," the wife replied, "in-laws."

Twinheads/Shoes/Weddings N'Shit

I believe I mentioned awhile ago that my "twinhead" is getting married this June. The reason I call her my Twinhead is because we both have very curly hair (yeah mine is very curly when it dries naturally) and we look like twins from the back. (I know, I know...I'm nuts).

Well, anyway, Twinhead kidnapped me at lunch time yesterday to go downtown to Kate Spade's to pick up wedding shoes she ordered. We went outside and sniffed the air first, (ok, it was safe to go outside today!)

You would think that I, being the good friend that I am, would assist her when we got there. You know, like opening up the boxes for her and going OOOOOH and AHHHHHHH. Well I did go OOOO and AWWWW. But I did it from across the store, where I was trying on my own damn shoes! I mean is it all about her? Just because she's getting married, does that make her special. Well, when I'm in a shoe store, it's all about me! I know some of you can relate to this! Anyway...when the shoes I tried on didn't fit well...I decided to go over to twinhead..(actually she requested my help, she yelled "HELP ME" from across the room) I was feeling guilty then so I sort of helped her and I'm sure she was grateful. Hehe. She's going to kill me when she reads this.

.....the shoes she ordered she didn't really like (too plain she said) ..I loved them...then she tried on all sorts of too high and too low shoes, from plain to sequined, to really big bowed ones (too clownish). Oh did I mention she has trouble walking in very high heels? I told her she's got to practice. She didn't get any shoes! Neither did I... Damn. Onward to more shoe stores! Hehe.
Grateful List:
1) Having a clean car(free of nose spots on the windows from the dog).
2) Good friends (like Twinhead).
3) New shoes.
4) Metro cards
5) Chicken chili soup.

My "P" Word (hehehe)

You thought I forgot about my words, huh? Here's my P word, (I skipped over "O", I'm saving that one. hehe) Enjoy the clip.

Oh, and I was a little late for work yesterday, but not because of blogging. They shut my train route down because a gas leak was enveloping downtown Manhattan and no one knew where it was coming from. People started to worry a little. It did smell like gas all over but our Mayor assured us that all was safe. Some buildings were evacuated. The gas companies were out looking for the "leak" and were all over the news stating they're was nothing wrong. Oh well...I think it was Melon that farted....ahahahaha.

Grateful list:
1. Laughing
2. Funny comments on my blog
3. Umbrellas
4. Frappucino
5. Baseball caps

Alright now...Today is definitely NOT Funday....It's absolutely AARRGGHH MONDAY! It sucks too. First Monday in two weeks where I had to get up and go to work. I actually don't hate working, per se, I just would like to sleep a little later.
I was watching the Giants/Eagles game yesterday and I saw something I thought was really neat (besides the nice lil tight ends I like to peak at).....One of the guys was on the sidelines with what I assume was the physical therapist of the team... was getting a leg massage with something that looked like a long rolling pin....the guy was rolling it up and down his leg.....I did a double take.... wow...I think I'd like one of those massages!!! Happy Monday!


Gratitude list:
1) seeing Mom laugh, in spite of her illness
2) Bookstores
3) Hot showers
4) New CDs
5) A little pug dogs nicknamed Snot

Why/Why Not/Thank You

So why is my horoscope on my msn page in German? Everything else is in English! Damn. I never read it anyway so I don't know why I care.
And why is it going to be 70 degrees out today, Januray 6, 2007? Happy Little Christmas? Do we say that? Why am I doing this? Is it because I just feel I must put up a post? Even if I have nothing to say? But I do....just not now. Oh wait, there is something....I've been doing my "Grateful List" each night, like I used to....I list 5 things out of the day I'm grateful for, gives me nice thoughts to go to sleep with...keeps my sanity sometimes too. Here's mine for yesterday:

I'm grateful for:

1. Fridays!!!
2. Having a great paying job
3. Full moons
4. Sunshine
5. Coffeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

Tell me one of yours. (Please?)

I'll take 99 Cents Worth Please and Keep Shaking

If Ian, from E Dog's won't send any of his snow my way, I may just have to buy it.

LOVELAND, Colo. - As if Colorado residents don't have enough snow to dig out from, one resident is offering more for a price on eBay. Starting bids were holding steady Friday at 99 cents for snow from "Blizzard I and Blizzard II" being offered by Mary Walker. She and husband, Jim, got the idea for selling snow after shoveling mounds from two storms a week apart that together dumped more than 4 feet along the Front Range.
"I figured eBay has ghosts and all sorts of weird stuff, so why not snow?" said Walker, who teaches business workshops on employee communications.
How much snow 99 cents or whatever the winning bid gets depends. Walker's auction notice suggests avoiding shipping and handling charges by stopping by their home and picking it up — in a dump truck.

Thanks to Skittles, who posted this video just for me I'll share it with you now...this is how I was shaking it yesterday!!!! (hehehe)

Shake It and Keep smiling!

AAARRRGGGGHHHHH Tuesday! Back to work and all that crap.

But I did have a wonderfully relaxing weekend and New Year's Day. Such a shame I have to work today. But I am in a good mood. So that's a good start. I hope you all enjoyed your New Year's, however you celebrated it. Mine was a bit quiet. I didn't feel like painting the town red this year. Although I don't usually go out on New Year's Eve, there are times that I do feel like going out to dance and go crazy. Yeah I do get crazy at times.....not the kind of crazy where they come in the white coats and take me away type of crazy....remember that song..."they're coming to take me away hahaheehee...."? I may be going crazy now, ya know...but then again of course you wouldn't. Just because I'm rambling away like someone in a rubber room? Why would you think that? Just because I'm listening to Shikira's Hips Don't Lie...omg ...where did that come from.....I feel like belly dancing now! No I'm not on drugs.....I'm just being silly cause I don't wanna go to work!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I wanna shake my hips!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LMAOOOOOOO

And they're coming to take me away he he ha the funny farm, where life is beautiful all the time and I'll be happy to see the nice young men in their clean white coats....and they're coming to take me awayyyyyyyyyyyy ......................................................

Oil and Soap

A New year, a new beginning...

Ok Everyone...this is a NON-AARRGGHH Monday! It's another Funday! Wow...two in a matter of two weeks. I'm not doing much today. I'm cooking and just gonna hang out with my hub, yes, that 's right. We're still friends. It was his birthday yesterday so we had dinner and were nice to each other. lol.

I almost made it to midnight...but feel alseep. Geeze, what happened to my "party-hearty" days? But anyway, I was awakened by all the fire works! That went on for about two hours!

It's pouring rain outside now. The lil snot dog won't go out. I wish I had a fireplace. (maybe I'll just start a pot on fire..hahaha). Actually I am a good cook...I just had a freak accident that one time with poor George Foreman.

I have no theme today. Just a flight of ideas here. Oh...speaking of silly things I did something else yesterday that was on the flakey side. I poured dish detergent into my cooking oil jar. LOL. Well the gallon containers were right next to each other and they were both the same color so I just grabbed one and started to pour. So what if we had soupy french fries? ahahahahah. (p.s. I don't drink, so you can't blame that).

Here's hoping y'all have a relaxing day and a year filled with new beginnings. See ya tomorrow!
