Welcome to Monday...

Happy Monday! Hope you all had a great weekend! I have to say the weekend was pretty eventful. Saw an old friend that I haven't seen in a while which was great...went to a cookout and I must say it was the most hilarious cookout I have been to in a lonnggg time!! I was thoroughly entertained and the food was pretty good too!

There was one casualty poor cell phone!! Somehow it experienced some water exposure. Fortunately it still comes on and I was able to backup my information on the computer, but as fortune goes, the keyboard is non-functioning. It's like a taunting of sorts, like a cat and mouse games, it still vibrates when I have calls and I can see when people are calling I just can't answer. At first I was thinking oh it's the end of the world I don't have my phone, I can't communicate with people, but now I'm looking at it as a blessing in disguise. I'd rather not be bothered half the time anyway so it's a welcomed break from constantly being connected to the world. Fingers crossed it will dry out!

Hope this week is smooth, until tomorrow...

Dusting off the Shelves...

It's been a longggg time, I know. I haven't been on here in ages, well maybe not ages, but since April which seems like ages ago to me. Now that summer is starting to wind down, I find myself trying to pull back and piece together some sort of structure that I've lacked since the sun has been roasting us slowly.

I'm going to start writing on here daily again though you may need to give me a week to fully get back into the swing of things. I have many things to share since my absence so hopefully you'll start to tune in again!!!

Toodles for now... is President Obama's 49th birthday!! Happy Birthday Mr. President!!!

Don't Be A Victim...

I would say Happy April Fool's Day, however I despise it sooo much! I don't think it's funny to have jokes played on you so, I'm steering clear of unnecessary contact with anyone today. If I don't answer your call, don't be offended! Yes, I'm that scared lol...

I ♥ This Commercial

Okay I'm a day late, but if you knew just how tired and I mean ridiculously exhausted tired I was yesterday, you would completely understand! Not only that, but I still have my Blizzard 2010, or "Snowmageddon" as it has been dubbed by President Obama, pictures to post as well. I have some pretty good shots, if I may so say myself...and look at that, I can!!!

My commercial picks for the week, two from the E*Trade babies cause they're hilarious, the JG Wentworth opera because clearly everyone cannot sing opera, and the Verizon Wireless - AT&T battle wages on, but this time...a little Twilight spoof...

I have been tardy with my commercials, so I have a line up for you to make up for lost time...I hope you enjoy!

I love this tugs at the heart a little, well at least for an animal lover...I wonder if Sarge feels this way about his bone?!?

These muppets crack me up every time they do a commercial! This one is soo funny because not only are they doing a playground cheer, but the shoe actually ends up on fire at the end...what will they come up with next.

I like this one because the little boy doesn't turn into a brat, he's a future problem out world!

Super Bowl XLIV

I have two very brief comments:
  1. Congrats to the Saints! I'm sure my "son" enjoyed the game since all he ever talks about is Drew Brees.
  2. The half-time show...what the hell was that??? I mean how long do we have to suffer for the wardrobe malfunction?

Suede and Water Do Not Mix
I know plenty of you have Uggs...not the waterproof kind that are meant to be slushed around in the snow, but those awful slipper-esque boots that really, too many people own. I have a newsflash for you:
Seriously, suede protectant is meant for minor incidents not full on water attacks. Now if you don't think I'm talking to you , that means I probably am!!! It's bad enough to see them year-round even when it's above 90 degrees, but spare me in the inclement weather or at least spare the sheep who gave up his shearling for your "fashion"...we could all benefit from a break...

♥ Love + History ♥

Happy February!

Welcome to the month of love and history. So many good things for such a short month, but it should prove to be action packed. I hope you enjoyed the weekend snow fall Because apparently we are getting more this weekend. I love snow, but I like snow that matters! I need something during the week so I can stay home not on the weekend when I want to go out and do things.

I have to say this years Grammy's were pretty good and out how much I watched, (the first hour, dvr'd the rest) I enjoyed the performances. I'm not really an awards show watcher, but it was worth my time. I especially enjoyed Pink's performance. The whole in the air twirling melody thing was pretty cool.

Have a productive day...Happy Monday

First Monday

Well here we are, the first Monday of the new year...the first work day...and surprisingly it doesn't feel as cumbersome as most Monday's do. Today I am focusing on cleaning out my desk. It's never ridiculously junky or filled up with miscellaneous items, but I just like everything from last month to have a place.

It seems Washington sports were in the news this weekend. The inevitable has finally occurred, Redskins head coach Jim Zorn was fired yesterday. Even though the Redskins did horrible this season, I somewhat feel bad for the guy. I don't think there is just a one person change around solution for this team. Everyone plays a part, and some people are just not pulling their weight. My suggestion would be to look at the bigger picture. Coaches are always the fall guy when things go south, but in this case, there are so many other reasons.

On the other side, Gilbert Arenas, who can now be called a flip-flopper, has conflicting stories as to why exactly he had a gun in his locker at Verizon center. Now usually you can smell a bad lie from far away, "I brought the gun here to keep it away from my baby" really??? Considering this is not his first child did he not feel that way about the other two? They're all under the age of 5, so could he not put it up high? Clearly if he brought it to work than it's not for protecting the home. Then the newest story that he actually pulled it on one of his teammates for a gambling debt?!? I just don't understand some of these athletes. You make so much money, maybe you should use some of it for a personal consultant...someone you can tell everything to before you do it so that you stay out of trouble, since obviously your moral compass is a little screwy. Ridiculous!

Happy Monday!

A New Start Begins...

Happy New Year! We've talked about it and anticipated it and now that it's feels the same as last year! I had been thinking of what it was that I would like to do differently in 2010, but the only thing that has really stood out in my mind is a fresh beginning. That means, letting everything that bothered me in 2009 go...and I mean really letting go of not only situations, but the people that they involved. Life as we know it is really short...too short to be bothered with thoughts, people, and situations that do not mean you well. I just really need to focus on me. I had dinner with a friend last night and we just really talked about putting things into perspective. It's good to be a realist about everything, and to have someone to bounce those ideas around with.

I wish you the very best for this new year and start to a new decade.
