Seriously - I don't think there is anything else that can make me cry as much as this. First, this song is my all time favorite song and when someone can sing it better then John Lennon - you've got me. Only one other person has done it so far: Jordis Unga from Rockstar: INXS.

If you don't watch American Idol, let me just say, they were not kidding when they said that this year had THE most talented contestants. They guys - yes. The girls - not so much. There are a few - OK I lied - One in particular (ahem Carly Smithson). And after 2 weeks - I am ready to put my money on David Archuleta. This kid is phenomenal. Little back story on this dude:

Paralized vocal chords when he was younger. Rumor has it he has won Star Search - but I see no bearing of that on AI.

This kid can really belt it out. And even Kam thinks he's cute.


You ever just have one of those days? I I got up nice and early - oh say 4:30 am. For no reason, just because I felt like getting up 40 minutes before the alarm goes off. Said alarm goes off and I contemplate just calling off. Nah - save your days Les. Go to work. So it will be boring, so you have nothing to do. At least you get paid for both of those.

Out the door am I at 5:30. Into the blustery frickin' cold....again. I really do need to relocate. Maybe I will become one of those "snow birds" - you know, the ones that live here in the spring/summer and move south for the winter? I am sure I could get a transfer to someplace warmer. But anywho......

Tick tock tick tock. The time passes slowly at work. 6:30...7. Where is everyone? It is so quiet. Finally someone shows. I do as much work as I can because I am really that bored. The report I am working is the same stuff over and over again. Finally, I get a visitor at my desk. My friend Becky. She has a present for me. 3 African Dwarf Frogs and 3 little fish. Her daughter has decided that she has grown tired of them and they need a new home.
"I'll take them. I wasn't the one that wanted the "bleeping" fish tank we have in the first place (but that's another story in itself) so if I put extra things in there, it's only me that takes care of sure. Thanks!"

She leaves....back to the boredom. I can't take anymore. I send Becky an IM and say - I want to take a half day (she is my car pooler as well so I have to give her the heads up that I want to leave).
"And what are you going to do", she says.
"Oh I don't maybe". You see, NY & Co has brainwashed me into their store. And everytime I am in there, they give away stuff. This last time was $20 City Cash - you spend $40 at a specified time, you get $20 off. Perfect timing...I am in desperate need of some clothes that fit. **Prepare yourself....I am about to complain about something YOU SHOULD NOT COMPLAIN ABOUT....EVER. AND I MEAN IT****

You see, I have managed to whittle myself down 42.5 pounds since May of last year. Something I am quite proud of. And quite frankly, I still need to lose about another 40 before I am at my "happy weight" - or what considers my happy weight. How they know what this is is beyond me but I digress.

Long story short (too late for that) - we blow the popsicle stand that is Highmark and head off for an afternoon of shopping.

I did OK - Saved $40 - got 2 short sleeve shirts and 2 capri pants which I can wear now with tall boots and one button down shirt for $80. Not bad. And the plus side is that I wasn't at work.

A day of hooky is needed every once in a while. You should try it if you haven't in a while.

Sign me!

Super cute

I don't know about you, but I'm gonna go watch Star Wars now. Only because I will be cracking up.

I need to move

I frickin' hate this weather. And what's worse? The "meteorologists" that "predict" this garbage. I wish I could be right 30% of the time at my job, and know that I would still be employed the next day. Guess I have to get my self out there and throw MORE salt down because who knows what it will be like in an hour. The only saving grace...the possibility that I (ahem) HAVE TO stay home tomorrow.

For Debby with a Y

You asked for it. They don't look this blue in person. In fact, I think I like them more in this pic then I do in person. And what are those?????...crow's feet???......yikes.

To sell my old laptop soon. I need the money to offset my West Coast Trip in April. Know anyone that wants to buy it?

I can't do it anymore.

I've played this charade for long enough. I've clung to my 20/20 vision long enough. Mind you, I have had glasses for sometime now. I just refused to wear them. Sure I let them out of their protective case every once and again to make sure they were still intact. Well, as of late, I have been having this weird throbbing/pulsing on the left side of my head above my ear. It's not painful in anyway, just very bizzare.

WebMd tells me it is one of three things...

1. My vision is impaired and I need to get it checked...STAT!
2. I am having some sort of stress induced migraine.
3. I have brain cancer.

I'm hedging my bets on numero uno. I've had a migraine...let me tell you....ranks right at the bottom of "My Things To Do When Bored" list. I've reviewed my medical records and sure enough, it's been over a year since my last eye exam. Pretty dumb for someone who sits on a computer for 18 out of 24 hours a day. So...I have busted out my "super smart specticles" and will be wearing them pretty much all of the time.

Creepy & Pathetic

You decide which is which. Of course, at least they aren't ganging up on the fish:

Start saving now...

Poor child is destined for a life of eyebrow waxing and Chapstick.


To the 25th Anniversary Edition of Thriller. I forgot how awesome this is!

4 Legged Friends

I'm pretty sure this was a conversation between Sasha and Shady last week:

For a kid that understands she shouldn't have friends over if she is sick. All it takes is a little bribery to do some girly things and play some games.

Kam will wake up with an illness so I don't have to have 2 kids in the house tomorrow.


If I could be sick or have a cold for the next 8 weeks straight, I would be at my goal weight.


My new laptop...Even though I despise those douche's at Circuit City for forcing me into buying a new one.


New TV show:

I would fail miserably at this as I can't remember this morning.
