My brother, Mike, sent me a pix of a letter I wrote to him when I was 10 years old. I'm struck by how SWEET I was....

How sad how the innocence of youth inevitably gives way to the cynicism of adulthood.

Puppy Abandoned in Freezing Cold

At first when i saw this headline, I prayed that he/she didn't die:

Then I went to the instructed site and found this:

One can have a lot of thoughts driving up and down a boring freeway 2 hours a day, every day (well...5 days a week) week in, week out. Today I was reminded of a Calvin & Hobbes comic strip where Calvin tells Hobbes that he's happy; but, he's not ecstatic. That's exactly how I feel...I'm happy, or should I say my life is totally normal; but, I'm not like super-thrilled. I would like to be super-thrilled so universe? Thrill me.

I hate people that use the fast-lane when they don't need to. It's like a level of selfishness that really "grinds my gears". MOVE OVER! I'm making a sign that screams that phrase that I say daily and putting it in my window for all the 99 drivers to see.

Also, I hate when people use the carpool lane when they have children in their car. I used to think the carpool lane was to help resolve traffic issues and since children can't drive, they're not resolving any issues...but I talked to a cop and he said it's legal to use the carpool lane with kids in the car so Kody? pack your're comin' to work with me.

I'm hooked on a new show call Jericho. Hello? why did no one tell me there was an apocolyptic show on tv???? the Apocolypse is like my most fantasized time ever....2012, i'm waitin' for ya! Being a survivor of maybe 10 in sacramento, i'll have my pick of the homes, cars and i can make a mocha whenever i want and not pay for it. yes! oh...and i won't have to go to work becuase everyone's gone! morbid, i know...see what happens when you're not overly ecstatic?

A new country...

Welcome, Obama...we expect GREAT things from you. Yes, you can! Course anyone's an improvment after the last dolt.

Yesterday, we had the day off so i went on a 30 mile bike ride with Kevin. It was hard, refreshing, satisfactory and exhausting. I tried to take a nap when I got home but just couldn't but it didn't matter becuase I had my very first acupuncture appt at 3:45 anyway. Obviously I looked terribly nervous because the 'doc' assured me it woudl'nt hurt.

He was right.

I told him my biggest concern was my weight, cold sores and yeah...the drinky thing. although don't be in too much of a hurry to cure the drinky thing since i'm still attached to it.

After an hour of needles on both sides of my body being put in and removed, i got dressed and headed out the door to pay my bill. when i got to the counter, I said "Uummm...I'm still fat!"

hhahahaha...i'm so funny.

then I had a drink.

Tidbit Blog

I'm in a weird mood. I had some odd dreams Add Imagelast night about Kevin and at some point he was Anderson Cooper and we were having an affair and way more to that than I feel like writing.

My head cold is FINALLY waning to the point of near-normal. That was the weirdest cold I've ever had. I'd like to thank the Neti Pot and Robin.

I keep wanting to email my cousin Mira and haven't done so yet...SORRY - I'm LAME!

My brother had another bad weekend; but, he's better now and going to Red Hawk with the girls. I'm hoping I win a million dollars because part of my weirdness is I"m sick of working. I just want to buy a 50 foot, over-ridiculously luxuriuos RV and travel across the country sloooooowly with Janet, Betsy, Kevin & Kody. And whomever else wants to come. It sleeps 12.

I have about 1.5" of gray growth on my hair. I was talking to Janet last night and I saw that beyotch look UP at my hair line! I had to tell her to not do that and i was aware of what she was doing. I ain't no do-do. But Debby is doing my hair tonight so i'll take a before and after. If there's no after, there will be no Debby. AND we're having Greek food for dindin. Yum.

Kody's getting kinda old and that's bumming me out. I'm getting too old to survive MASSIVE pain. He's still an irritating shit; but, when he tries to get up he sounds like an old fire, crickling, cracking, snapping and popping. He does still have the energy to hide a shoe on a daily basis though. We'll do our best.

Well, i was bored at work and felt like tidbitting so i did.

A Neti Pot

So, I have been pretty sick the last 10+ days with some kind of viral head cold. Sunday night my face hurt. MY FACE HURTED!

After convincing myself it wasn't face cancer, I decided maybe my sinuses were over-plugged and/or infected. Which prompted me to try the scary Neti Pot. (exact one)

and this is how you use it:

I thought I'd be panicky; but, it's not really that bad. The sensation is somewhat like you jumped in a pool without plugging your nose and that's about it...not much came out like I'd hope.

This morning I thought I'd put some of my food grade 35% hydrogen peroxide in my pot. Brilliant!

I'm pretty sure I burned my sinuses and my brain but my nose DOES feel clearer.

I hope so cuz we got a FUCK BUSH party to go to SAturday. who'd want to miss that???

The weekend

We had a pajama game-night party Saturday night. It just happens to be my last night of partying until i lose 20 pounds. So I made sure to do it up right.

Janet and I had shopped earlier that day and bought $100 worth of food & alcohol. Only the alcohol was finished.

Michelle in her usual pose:

After a few hours of Balderdash and Cranium, I put on some house music to crank the party up a bit. Always works...

Then Kevin and I belted out some drunk Moulin Rouge on my infamous karaoke machine...MAN we're hot.

Everyone went hot tubbing but me...somehow I found my bed and sawed some logs.

The next day Kevin went to my Starbucks to get our coffees and Ashley, one of my fav baristas there, wrote this on my cup! Isn't she cute??!!?

NOW I'm starting my new years resolutions. The pictures you DIDN'T see showed me 8 months pregnant. The next full body pix you see of me will be more like this:

hahaha...kidding of course...

Happy New Year Blogger community!

We had a really good new years eve and I'm so happy to say, I didn't get hammered, black out or have to call anyone today to apologize. IT'S THE NEW ME!

We went over to a friends house for a potluck, ate like Kings and drank some libations. It was MY goal to walk downtown to see our version of Times Square. Sacramento doesn't really have much by way of 'cool things to do' so I just couldn't miss this.

(Marites, Kevin & Glen - the party hosts and Querkis)

And what's odd, is i'm pretty much the LAZY one of the group and as the athletic people hemmed and hawed about walking downtown in the cold weather, I stood my ground. We were going.

Kristin. I LOVE her!

Hmmm...Michelle looks a little LOOPY!

We donned coats, hats, scarves, mittens & beer and headed out. It was a fun kinda quiet walk with a few sporadic parties along the way. I'm always drawn to parties and i so badly wanted to break away, have a beer with new people and enjoy the moment, but, remember...i'm on a mission.

We got to 10th and K and it was packed.

It was vibrant, happy, crowded, honkey (as in horns) and screamy as in "WHOOOOOO....HAAAAPPY NEW YEEEEAR!" You couldn't really see the "ball" which bummed me out because I wanted to see it drop. Come to find out, it doesn't drop, just changes color and counts down. woo. way to go Sacto.

But the counting down was fun and when we were done kissing, hugging and snapping pix we headed off to find a bar...

Kevin, Graham, Sue, Michelle, Angelina Jolie, Glen Marites and Bob in the background.

Me, kevin & marites...

Hmmm....why what do we have here?????

So all the bars were massively packed and we were all getting irritated. We walked back to G&M's and decided we'd head home. It was 1:30am.

So, here's to 2009. May it be a better year than 2008. "May peace break into your house and may thieves come to steal your debts. May the pockets of your jeans become a magnet of $100 bills. May love stick to your face like Vaseline and may laughter assault your lips! May your clothes smell of success like smoking tires and may happiness slap you across the face and may your tears be that of joy. May the problems you had forget your home address! In simple words . . . May 2009 be the best year of your life"
