I’m so old. (Again.) 16

I’m so old. (Again.)

LilZ ordered a poster for his bedroom of The Pussycat Dolls. As in…the pseudo-strippers that sing that song…loosen up my buttons, babe. I don’t know if you’ve seen the video – but LilZ downloaded it and loves it. Of course. I mean, it’s several totally hot chics dancing on chairs to a song that asks someone to help them take their clothes off. OF COURSE HE LOVES IT. Ever since he’s gotten that poster he’s had to hear me say, “What kind of mother let’s their daughters dress like that?” And, “Girls who act like that are nothing but two-bit...

You’ve heard of “photo albums” before, right?

When I was still pregnant with NikkiZ, I was trying to put together some photo albums to leave out on the coffee tables before one of our showers. Of course, by “photo album” I mean just that: Photo Album. No scrapbook. I’ve made one scrapbook and I just don’t have the patience to really stick with it. I prefer the slot-for-the-photo album. They lazy man’s scrapbook. I have always loved photo albums, but the digital camera age has kept me from keeping them as up-to-date since printing isn’t habitual. We don’t use photo printers because; with the amount of photos...

I have a feeling I’m going to regret posting this

The last time I joked about having a crush on a teen actor (keyword being: JOKED) I got called a perv. So, I post this with no immediate commentary other than these simple points: I think this move, a theater production that requires nudity, will do nothing but help Daniel Radcliff’s career and allow him to break free of the Harry Potter role when he sees it is time to do so. I wish him the best of luck and hope his performance gets excellent reviews. Daniel Radcliffe is a good looking young man. I am fairly certain non of...

My newest infatuation 24

My newest infatuation

I just went to the Fresh Market for my lunch break to pick up one of their yummy pimento cheese sandwiches. They make the best pimento cheese EVAH. Yes, even better than yours. I’m sorry to break it to you. They put something in there, like maybe heroin, or possibly LSD, but something that totally makes me happy to be eating it. I have actually dreamt about their pimento cheese. It’s THAT GOOD. But in general? I’m just terribly in love with place. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: The Fresh Market makes me want to be...

Glad to know you all are in a funk too 11

Glad to know you all are in a funk too

It looks like everyone is feeling a little…blah…lately. Several of you mentioned that it’s the month January – which typically makes people feel crappy. I say, let’s blame it on January! I’m all for blaming my emotional problems on inanimate objects or concepts. You should see how often I yell at the couch for stealing my car keys. Or when I punish TiVo for keeping me from laundry. What has January ever done for me? Besides allow my son to be born. And my mother. And one of my best friends. But in reality? Those are not GOOD things –...
