Co-worker: I like your outfit. It's very nautical.
Me: Yeah. I'm preppy without the boat.

Current Music:"I Had a Baby" - Sinead O'Connor
Security:
Subject:lump meet throat...
Time:04:32 pm
Today's lump in throat comes courtesy of the All Songs Considered podcast discussion of the best music so far in 2012. Ann Powers chose to play a cut from Sinead O'Connor's album and everyone noted that the album seemed to get lost in all of the noise that has been generated by Sinead's personal life. To drive it all home, Stephen Thompson said, "It's a reminder that...you,uh...it's really unwise to give up on people." Of course, he was talking about how not writing off an older artist (or any artist) who has had a bad period in their career, but I just want to always remember what he said, and how he said it, for life in general.

Ugh...but, then I just remembered the office bitch who chewed me out today for throwing away her 1/2 a stick of butter that was wrapped up in a grocery bag and left in the fridge after we told people that we would be cleaning out anything that wasn't labeled or claimed. UGH. I'll just write her off and have an open mind and heart for everyone else out there.

And then they play a Fiona Apple cut and I remember that, if she's butter, I'M THE HOT KNIFE.

during this morning's commute, i noticed that the woman in front of me had the same exact hair as kitty foreman. i'm guessing it wasn't an ironic hair-do at 7:30AM. that's a pretty serious silhouette to sport in every day life.

for every year that i've been on lj, i've posted something on 4/22. well, except one year the post was on 4/21 and the other was on 4/23. so, almost EVERY year.

i'm still posting on LJ, but most of it is private. i like using this to help me remember things down the line. but, not everything i want to remember is something that you folks want to read about.

all is well in c-land. sorta. luna got some sort of stomach bug or something and i'm going to pick up some doggy immodium-AD for her today. i hope this does the trick for her. she's had two accidents in the house and she NEVER has an accident unless it's a real emergency. poor baby. luckily, she's still eating and drinking and chasing squirrels and acting crazy. so, that's a good sign. i just hope her stomach is reacting badly to having her food changed while she was boarded over the weekend during our trip to st. louis.

oh. i went to st. louis. :) the greg, beth, ryan and i went to visit the passinis. a great weekend. AB tour, cunetto's, lumiere place casino (i walked away a big winner with $3 but could have "won" oh-so-much-more if that roulette dude had hit us with the ball when he flung it across the casino floor), an attempt to check out crown's candy that was abandoned when we saw the line and much, much more.

i've gained like 20 pounds in the last 1.5 years. when i finally dropped my second job, i got laaaaaaazy. walking the dogs never really worked as exercise because it's a lot of work to walk two big hounds. i can only walk so far before i just want to take them back home. also, if i walked without them, i felt some SERIOUS guilt. so, i made a decision to get active and start taking care of myself. i haven't really changed my diet but i did join something that rhymes with spazzercise. i missed dancing and i hate gym equipment. so, this is the perfect thing for me. they throw in pilates, yoga and kick-boxing into the 1 hour class. it kicks my ass. i sweat so much that i can smell my own hair. that's sweating!!! i've only been doing it for 2 weeks now, but i love the feeling when i've finished that hour of serious moving and grooving. yes - it can be VERY cheesy but i'm happy to smile and "WOOOOOHOOOOO!" when it means that i've got my butt in gear.

that's enough of an update for now! hope all of you are well. i'm going to go crawl back into my hole.

cheers!

Subject:one ouzo, two ouzo, three ouzo....FLOOR.
Time:01:02 am
warning:
even though it may seem like a good idea to go out for a family-style greek feast for your friend's bachelorette party, you'll really regret this party-planning decision once the bride has had so much ouzo that she's puking up flaming cheese and tzaziki in the back of your car. you'll pray to god to give you the strength to free-base some carpet cleaner just so you can get that smell out of your nose and life for all eternity.

opa, my ass.

key to success on a saturday morning. drive around in a circle, stopping at 4 spots that offer desserts/pastries. try something at every place. YUM!!!

gwynne and i went to these 4 marietta spots in an effort to find items for next week's dessert buffet/wedding shower for beth & ryan:
1. la suprema bakery
2. douceur de france
3. BB brazilian bakery
4. jerusalem bakery

good lord. by the time the cute guy at jerusalem bakery was giving us all kinds of things to try (for free - swoon), i just could not eat one more bite. but, it really was a heavenly way to spend a few hours. YUM and YAY for finally stepping foot into a couple of these places that had been on my 'must visit' list for quite some time.

the greg got some sort of splitter for the bedroom tv so that we can tivo one thing and watch another. along with this new ability, we have found that we receive free pay-per-view and on-demand shows/movies without having a digital cable box for this tv. this is a awesome, but also a bit frustrating. awesome because i'd love to watch JUNO for free. but, frustrating because i can only watch JUNO if someone else in the neighborhood is watching JUNO. weird, right? it's like all the pay-per-view and on-demand requests for the neighborhood are being fed through our tv.

now....apparently, you can order adult movies. oh...and they are NOT scrambled.

and there are lots of people ordering adult movies. i've seen b00bies on sunday morning because someone ordered the porn. can't order a beer in georgia before noon on sunday, but you can order porn.

i now have the habit of blaming the dog when i stop the tv on porn in progress.
"greg, luna found free porn on the tv again."

i'm also now pretty bored with the free porn. it's too softcore.
(meaning, i've officially seen too much free porn.)

when you are watching a movie that someone else has ordered, you also get to see when they stop the movie and rewind it. YES...you can.

"oh yay. someone just ordered KNOCKED UP. why are they fast-forwarding through the whole thing? are they going to go straight to the sex scene with katherine hiegl and seth rogen? oh my god. they went straight to the sex scene with katherine hiegl and seth rogen!!! don't they know there is real porn available out there?!?!? i mean, it's pretty softcore, but it's better than this."

everyone in my neighborhood is now viewed as a potential perv. at least i know who is #1 on the list.
