tis the season to be jolly
Getting to work this morning was a nightmare. We got sleet and freezing rain all night. I backed out of the garage and I could feel my tires sinking in. It had the consistency of sand. If some generous neighbor hadn't plowed our lane on their way home, I would have had a heck of a time getting up the hill.
Lord knows I can't depend on the township to plow it that early on a weekend. Again, thank God for studded tires! Getting home was lovely, too. It was snowing and winds were whipping up to 50 mph. When I got home, we had no
electricity. It was weird coming into the 'hood and seeing everything pitch black.
Well, well, well. I see my mortal enemy Celine Dion is leaving Las Vegas.
I TOLD you people I'd drive that woman out of Vegas like St. Patrick drove the snakes out of Ireland!!
I know Stacey said it wasn't possible, but last night I was working on my laptop
and decided to clean up the kitchen. When I was in the kitchen I had a hankerin' to bake
some gluten free brownies. (Yes, I'm still on that kick) I came back into the living room
and could not get a signal on my laptop. I did the whole reboot/shut off modem thing and
it wouldn't work. I turned off the oven, and shut down the modem for 30 seconds and it connected just fine. 'Splain that, gurl!
I know they're trying for a "hip 'tude" on E's Daily 10, but Debbie Matenhoweveryouspellhername
comes off as more phony and annoying than hip.
She's trying way too hard.
VH1 did their Top 40 videos of 2007. I'll give you a hint as to what Number One
was: Fergie's "Big Girls Don't Cry." Ok, it was more than a hint.
Chelsea Whatshername on E! bestowed her "Train Wreck of the Year Award" to.......Britney Spears.
Wow. That came as a total surprise. She's been making such sound decisions lately.
I was totally surprised to see Carnie Wilson on Celebrity Fit Club. Just goes to prove that gastric bypass is not always an answer. Sometimes it's just a temporary solution and a big ole sign that our demons will continue to plague us one way or another, until we deal with them. It's rather sad, too, because gastric bypass is hard on your body, and to go through all of that only to have your problem
return would be very disheartening.
I was watching The Soup and a guy from one of the reality shows had to be taken to the hospital, and was filling out the form. First he read "marital status" as "marshall status," and asked what that meant. Then he came to the line that said, "What was your method of arrival?", meaning were you brought to the hospital in an ambulance or did you come of your own accord. He turns to the person who brought him in, "What was it? A Ford or a Chevy? I'll just put Ford."
I saw a commercial for Aero Garden and the chick says, "This is something you can get for the person who has everything because they don't have this!" Then they don't have EVERYthing, do they?
