Utter Devastation

Wednesday, August 31st, 2005

It is hard to say anything funny or remotely snarky when there is so much devastation going on around you. Thankfully, my family and I were spared personal trauma save for a few minor inconveniences, and I have now accounted for most of my missing friends as well. I am truly blessed, but deeply saddened […]

On The Edge Of A Broken Heart

Monday, August 29th, 2005

Tonight, I sit on the threshold of disaster, bracing for a hurricane just days ago I had no idea would impact me. All the arguing and anger seem misplaced yet still prevalent, and my priorities are oddly skewed as I am more upset about my fingernail breaking than the failure of my marriage. I wasn’t […]

Strange Days

Thursday, August 25th, 2005

I managed to make the 13 and a half hour journey down to Bama in one day. That may not seem like a big deal to some people, but to me it is nothing short of a miracle. I get so sleepy when I am driving long distances, especially when I am alone, but yesterday, […]

Needs MORE Cowbell

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2005

Ok before I start, I have to go off the subject. I can’t help myself, I have to ask, what the hell is Pat Robertson smoking? Look, whether or not you agree with him and/or think he has a point, the man clearly smokes crack. Assassination is not exactly the most Christian of solutions. Even […]

So Not a Morning Person

Monday, August 22nd, 2005

Ok, I am pressed for time tonight, but I have to get this down before I leave town. This morning, Taine got up to go to work. He took a shower, shaved and then came out to get dressed. He must have been feeling really cocky (pardon the pun), cuz he quipped at me, “hello, […]

Notes from the Outer Rim

Sunday, August 21st, 2005

Given my obvious penchant for reruns, you can see how this weekend might have turned in to an E! fest. Yes I did watch Veronica Mars, but I also had time to catch Taradise, E!’s new Wild On show hosted by Tara Reid. I wouldn’t call my self a fan, but I decided to tune […]

Are we there yet?

Friday, August 19th, 2005

I am sick of the summer TV crapfest, enough with the repeats! I know we are half way to September, but I can hardly stand it anymore. What can I say? I love TV, and I love being a couch potato, but there is a limit to how many times I can watch the same […]

Anywhere But Here

Thursday, August 18th, 2005

My husband and I have this nightly ritual, we go to bed way too late and then lay around talking about whatever comes to mind. Sort of a stream of consciousness mind cleansing that can cover anything from familial updates, to the things we didn’t finish doing that day and ends up at things we’ve […]

Low prices-Always

Wednesday, August 17th, 2005

Why is it easy to spend 2 hours in Wal-mart until you have to? I thought I would kill myself with a knitting needle or at the very least a hunting knife before they got through with my car. Since I had already spent a crapload on my car this week and I still needed […]

Credit Where Credit is Due

Tuesday, August 16th, 2005

My husband is trying to take credit for teaching me the word “craptastic” like it is “his” word or something. Apparently he and his geek squad have been using it for years. He would take credit for the Declaration of Independence if it wasn’t signed. It is so annoying. Now he’s also all offended that […]
