My water intake is WAY up, soda way down. I’m pretty much done with soda altogether except for an occasional bottle. Dairy and protein and veggies up too, carbs way down. Its working! Today so far 2 miles at gym track Lean pocket Pepsi Next (1/2 bottle) Bottle water I have one string cheese, one yogurt, and one applesauce to pick from as snacks. Also more water. I’m going to...
Got up. Took kids to school. Had a coke. Watchin Sopranos. Maybe Christmas shopping later. Decidedly non-wacky.
But I refuse to let it affect my Christmas spirit. I have my lack of funds to do that. If I could just afford to do all my shopping at Urban Outfitters I could really make Christmas awesome…but maybe Target is gonna have to suffice. We don’t even have an H&M here so that’s out. Ugh. Why can’t they have mail order.
If you think you love Gino Vannelli more than I...
The hair….the glorious hair. Once at the Great Escape (then Storytown USA) in the late 70s, I was in line behind a guy who looked just like him. He had on a wife beater, a gold chain, and tight jeans and had loads of glorious, black glossy curls tumbling over his shoulders. The 9 year old me could not tear my eyes away from him. He had to have been about 30, right on target for me agewise...
Growing up 70's style
Every other minute I reflect on what an awesome childhood I had and how unfortunate it is that my kids will never know the coolness of that era. Yeah they got internet…but look what they didn’t get: -bike riding w no helmet -bike riding off to God knows where til dinnertime, eating, then going back to God knows where til dark. No parents seemed to mind this and it gave us plenty of...
Strange nighttime going-on across the road!!!
I LOVE spying on the neighborhood. Tonite was perfect for it…clear night, single gunshot, mysterious headlights and then bobbing flashlight beam.. then the getaway. I’m pretty sure I just witnessed a deer jacking over in the Ganienkeh field…and its not the first time. Oooooh I LOVE when this stuff happens!! The minute I heard the shot I turned every light off, then grabbed the...
Poor Dan and Diana
The two Bob-Whites who see the least amount of action? Ex-street thug and nephew of Regan, Dan Mangan and the pretty, slightly scatterbrained Di Lynch. I always feel bad for them. Well mostly for Dan, because Di has on more than one occasion been a real nastypants to Trix. Poor Dan never gets to join the rest of the gang on travel adventures because of his job helping old Mr. Maypenny patrol...
Havin a hootenanny
Not really. I am listening to a random assortment of folk music on NPR. Earlier was a very entertaining Prairie Home Companion where they had a Bill Monroe tribute, they played Uncle Penn which is one of my favorites. Anyhoo, I just noticed after re-reading all of the Trixie Belden mystery books recently, that the word “hootenanny” appears more than once. The Bob-White’s...
Ok that was harsh
Formed a tentative but unsatisfying truce with F. Christopher Giruzzi yesterday. Although he blames his actions on his post-divorce wierdness, I don’t really buy it. If only I could be absolved of my past deeds so easily. Yet I buy into it because I love him, even though he is full of sh*t. He thinks that by “owning” his shoddiness he makes it ok. So initially elated by his happy...
F. Christopher Giruzzi
Its hypocritical of me of all people to expect fidelity. But you don’t throw the “soulmate” word around lightly. You also threw 24+ years of friendship out the window???? Really? May everything you touch turn to sh*t. I can’t think of anything bad enough to compare this to analogy-wise….that you can so easily dismiss someone who you said you would do anything for...
I am going to incorporate more fake food references into my posts. This because I love fake food more than you or anyone you know. I wish I was 10 again so I could go into Claire’s and buy up all the sushi earrings and donut necklaces. But since I can’t(well I could but I get enough grief as it is) I will just try to find lovely pics. In the good old days, a fake food fix was easily...
Day started out semi ok as I did chores and then watched Easy A which in turn caused me to fall hopelessly in love with Stanley Tucci. Then I messed with Biancas dreads and we picked up Hecto from school, and took her job hunting at all the area drug paraphernalia stores. Dustin invited her to Burlington so I had to drop her at the ferry and she went over on foot and he met her at the other side....
European cars and the people who drive them.
you can pretty much guess what a person is like by the car they drive (me being the exception)For example, older minivans are driven by people on disability who smoke too much, etc. Here’s a rundown of European car owners. AUDI: cool large breed dog on board, outdoor sports enthusiast, wine drinker. BMW: douchebag, gin drinker, self important, adulterer. May have a dog but would never let it...
Radio plans not moving forward as planned. Seems you need some tech knowledge to hack a transmitter…who knew
Went to dentist again yesterday and didn’t have to have any type of needle. Ate McDonald’s by the lake and left Lake George right after but didn’t want to. Discovered a mini putt that we didn’t know existed. Actually we discovered a whole street of shops we didn’t know about.

nerdology: Pour one out for the squircle.
Guess I am the OCD, cat statue collecting weirdo mom:)
By Thanksgiving time, I will have my own internet radio station. I don’t have the money or know-how to build my own dream pirate radio station…which sucks because this rooftop is the perfect place for a transmitter. So I will have to settle for a legal net station…but I’m going to run it like its illegal. Ridge Radio will even send out QSL cards for those who request them:)
Listening to ABBA.
Just watched a Zen Chuck Norris take out an entire town with the help of his gearjammer buddies in the CB radio classic “Breaker Breaker”.
I hit dismiss instead of snooze, so did Hecto.I’m too tired to care so were sleepin in.
OCD Nighttime Ritual
In order to go to sleep, I must have three pillows. They must be fluffy. I have to have socks on, but they can only be on just past the ball of my foot, leaving the rest of my foot and heel bare. I also have to keep my pasta utensil that I use as a backscratcher and my thing of TUMS next to the bed. I have three internet radio stations that I can fall asleep to. On Sunday night, this means KONO...
This was all Hector's doing
Tonight Hector made this for me and I don’t really know. What I’m doing. Bianca made an awesome homemade Link costume and I did really badly at tryin to make waffles.
