Big Red

"Ian was over at Manon's place on the weekend. He stayed over cause he had been drinking, although she had been spiking everyone's drinks with grenadine. She likes grenadine."

"Ian stayed over cause he was drinking grenadine?"

"No, she was drinking grenadine. He asked her if she thought she was a hummingbird"

Countdown to Neko

Any one up for a disgusting giraffe story, turn up the speaks and let er rip.....

Check it out here

god i can't wait for her to come to the Festival. I am so psyched.

It rains and pours

Please know that I am happy for you
and wish you all my best
but that I hide away at home
with my sickness and jealously
in guard of my heart
in protection of my good humor
in dealing
and maintenance of my already
hurt feelings
for something I can’t have
right now
or at all

Suffering from Kitchen Sink

After almost having a complete breakdown in the copy department today at work, (after picking up the 100th copy paper ream packaging just causally left on the table, knowing fully well that I would come and clean up after them) I booked a week of holidays.

I didn't care when they would be, didn't care if I was going anywhere but I had to book them.

When a copy paper ream packaging makes the tears well up, it's time to go.

On a further note, I read an article on Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (which I have) today that was scary/amusing. My favorite part is the "classic symptoms" which all but include the kitchen sink.
They are as follows:

drastic weight gain, hair loss, depression, fatigue, thyroid problems, high cholesterol, panic attacks, headaches, dizzy spells, poor memory or muddled mind, sleeping disorders, constant thirst, extreme cravings, insulin resistance, cystic acne, cystic ovaries, menstrual cycles without ovulation, irregular cycles, severe mood swings, high testosterone levels, infertility problems, excess facial and body hair, not to mention a seven times greater risk than an average woman for four major health concerns affecting women in the United States today including heart disease, diabetes, endometrial cancer and stroke.

And all this time I thought I was a hypochondriac !!!

"Why do you even say that, say we'll meet somewhere?
You hardly ever show up, you don't really care.
So why do you even say that, say you got time for me?
You talk but you don't walk, busy as a bee.
I don't think you're all that happy, honey baby, with your thing,
But I ain't some fish you caught, can't keep me on a string.
You say you really love me, then you're gone in seconds flat,
Say you really want me, why do you even say that?
Why do you even say that? Why do you even say that?"

Evil Evil Mischa Barton......grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

Not so secretive crushes.....

Call me hormonal (I blame it on the drugs) however the following dudes have turned my crank (and some harder than others) in the last few weeks:

Patrick Dempsey (AKA: Dr. McDreamy from Grey's Anatomy) Maybe cause he's hot, maybe cause he's generally an asshole, or cause he's a married guy, I'm not sure. But he's all that and a bag of skittles. He's a new addition to "the list".

Taylor Hicks from American Idol: He can sing, He's funny and has this endearing Dave Matthews/Steve Winwood thing. I'm lame but I can fully admit it.

Xavier Rudd. He's hot, he plays instruments, always generally barefoot and is a super nice guy. Too bad his freaking show here is sold out...WHAAAAAAAAAA

Time for a cold shower.....

ps: My husband is fully aware and these crushes are fully within our "agreement" besides, he wants to keep Katharine McPhee from American Idol in our garage as a pet.
Wait.....does that sound creepy? Cause I think she's hot too.
I've said too much.

"We'll all stay skinny cause we just don't eat..."

Haven't felt much like blogging lately.
Missed work Monday cause I had such a horrible stomach ache Sunday and felt like I had been run over by a bus repeatedly on Monday. Now today, I am blessed with not only super-inhuman indigestion but super-double-ungodly cramps.

I don't know how you normal girls do this every month.

Operation Reconnect

Danny and I are planning a quick Saturday trip to the Whiteshell this weekend.
Which is a welcome relief from my cabin fever, his hatred of the city and a slight bit of depression I am trying to manage. (It’s hard to like a body that doesn’t work like it should.) Hopefully the rain will hold out or not drown us when we are there. We are planning on having lunch out there and walk a few trails and gather some rocks for our garden. We are in such need of this trip. All the medications, appointments, meetings, illness and constant fighting make it hard to remember the good things and why we are together. Things become habitual, and stale and I know what that leads to. So wish me good weather and good luck.
I’m excited; it’s almost like an anniversary (but I wouldn’t know cause I never got one :)

“So that's why I never come back here
That's why they spit out my name
Your ex's have clawed up the bible
Trying to keep me away
With the sledge of tectonic fever
The needle has landed again
Let it play”

Song of "my" day

"Badass" by Kacy Crowley

"I was the runt of the litter
I was a weakling
I was the last to discover
I was the ugly duckling

We're all the same on the inside
but we're always up against everybody's outside
And its hard to live up to a strangers beautiful
Some people always finish last
Still I ended up a Badass"

You know it's a good day when:

-You get into a fight with a cab driver who thought that you shouldn't have blocked his way and get out and starts yelling at you. Then you refuse to roll down your window and give him the peace sign and tell him to "chill" all cause you didn't feel like backing up and letting him through. I am mean like that sometimes.

-We get ice cream at work today

-It's Cinco de Mayo

-It's International No Pants Day

Don't catch a chill folks!!!

Sound Stage

Warming sun
in market square
wander aimless
and with content
and rememberance
of being young
and full of
anthusiasm and confidence
free flowing music
all around me
and Moses Mayes
on stage
his hand in mine
squeezing with
eager anticipation
of what was to come
I couldn't know
this would
be the last
and the changes
that would blow in
and around us
