The Tuesday Ten™ 05-30-06

In honour of Tink, who just returned from holiday. 1. What was the best vacation you’ve ever taken? 2. Where’s your favourite vacation spot? 3. Plane, Train, or Automobile? 4. Have you ever been on a cruise? 5. Where would you like to visit that you’ve yet to go? 6. Who would you like to […]

Rules of My Life.

1) I can only please one person per day. Today is not your day. Tomorrow is not looking good either. 2) I love deadlines. Especially the whooshing sound as they go flying by. 3) Tell me what you need, and I’ll tell you how to get along without it. 4) Accept that some days you […]

Use some common sense.

Both Ambien and Lunestra list as their potential side effects “Drowsiness”. I should HOPE so, being that they are sleep aids. I’d hate to think they might give you insomnia.

A Holiday Weekend Comes To A Close

Did more yard work this afternoon, with re-mulching the flower beds. 20 bags (40 cubic [or is it cubit?] feet) later, 2/3s of the house is back to having the rich, dark red cedar colour back. Huzzah to PR for all of his work (and for buying the mulch). I find that the older I […]

Seasonings of Life

Going through the echos in my head: You know, there’s been a lot of water under the bridge between the two of us. I don’t wish for days gone by — or in this case, years gone by. You’re on your own path, as I am on mine. We’ve each got enough issues to write […]

Talking out of my head.

Yesterday was a mix of fun and otherwise. Pisco did indeed make it down to visit my church. Unfortunately, however, traffic made him late getting back to his sister’s for brunch, and I apologize. For once our service ran over. He knew it wasn’t my fault, and I knew I couldn’t control it, but it […]

Music of the Night

“To Deserve You” – performed by Bette Midler I see so many golden women; When they walk their feet don’t touch the ground. How I want, how I want to deserve you. But me, I’m always out of rhythm. My needs too demanding, too proud. How I want, how I want to deserve you. I […]

Things you don’t want to think about.

Where have I been?

Michael Jackson named the kid he dangled “Blanket”? As if that wasn’t strange enough, read the memoir.

Various ramblings.

It’s been an interesting day. Hell’s Half Acre™ is finally trimmed back to normalcy. The rose bushes have all been “dead-headed”. (Well, the major ones have been in the front and back side of the house). Lunch was ok, and shopping was … eh. Does drinking Goldschlager make your poo take on a metallic tinge? […]

Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

Sorry for the lack of posts yesterday — I was off visiting a friend (Picture Lady) who went through a major surgery a short time ago. It was a WONDERFUL day, that we spent catching up with each other (I was able to introduce her to the City Grill in Great Bridge (thanks to Molly’s […]

Letter to Geri

(Ginger Spice has named her daughter Bluebelle Madonna or some such nonsense…) Dear Geri Halliwell, Congratulations on the birth of your daughter. Ignore all the cynics who are saying the names you’ve chosen will become the subject of cruel taunts by children called Apple or Rhoda. They are wrong. I’d be more worried by the […]

Too much to bear.

I just heard, via email, from someone whom I had tried (unsuccessfully) to block from my memory. Numb is how best to describe my emotions right now. That, and the fact I feel like my heart was been ripped out and I’m hollow. You touched my heart you touched my soul. You changed my life […]

Get. It. OUT. Of. My. Head!

More thoughts on life, the universe, and everything. If you think one of these is about you, it may be. I will neither confirm, nor deny, anything. I can’t help it if I’m not some mindless bit of fluff who has the perfectly sculpted body and a vapidity seconded only by the crushing sounds of […]

Some things are better left in a meme.

Taken from Erica’s. Things I Want to Say to People But Can’t Or Won’t, For Whatever Reason You are a dear person; you broke my heart, but not my spirit. If you could get your shit together and solve some of your problems, then you might have a lot to offer someone. But the way […]

Ok, what am I missing?

There’s obviously a brouhaha on Capital Hill. Why? Because Angry lawmakers demand FBI return seized documents: Search of congressman’s office unconstitutional, they say Uh, excuse me. Wait one DAMN minute. You’re telling me that you’re above the law? Lawmakers predict a long dispute over the FBI’s search of Jefferson’s office last weekend. Historians say it […]

Yet again inside my head.

Editor’s note: The following may or may not be true, may or may not pertain to anything (or anyone) in my life, and should and should not be taken seriously. I wonder if you know how it really feels to be left outside alone? Did you give that gift because (1) you felt guilty about […]

Two Women Talking In Heaven

1st woman: Hi! My name is Wanda. 2nd woman: Hi! I’m Sylvia. How’d you die? 1st woman: I froze to death. 2nd woman: How horrible! 1st woman: It wasn’t so bad. After I quit shaking from the cold, I began to get warm & sleepy, and finally died a peaceful death. What about you? 2nd […]

Why we split up!

She told me we couldn’t afford beer anymore and I’d have to quit. Then I caught her spending $65.00 on make-up. I asked how come I had to give up stuff and not her. She said she needed the make-up to look pretty for me. I told her that was what the beer was for. […]

The Tuesday Ten™ 05-23-06

Since I turned 37 on Sunday, we’ll call this one “The Birthday Edition”. 1. What was the best birthday you can remember having? 2. What is the best birthday present you’ve ever given? 3. Received? 4. How will you be/did you celebrate your birthday this year? 5. Balloons, flowers or card? 6. Do you mind […]
