Hiding From the World

So I saw pictures of me from the party I went to last Friday night, wow, all I can say is wow. Why has none of my friends told me how hideous I truly look? My arms look like giant ham hocks hanging off of my shoulders. It was raining so my hair was out of control, is it ok to tell everyone who posted a picture of me to take it down?

You know, there are times I think I look pretty good, then I see a photo, or pass a mirror, or see the look in a certain man’s eyes. I know I am old, wrinkled, saggy and just plain old-fashioned ugly. I should get a job where I can stay home out of the public eye, that would save countless people from being grossed out.

On an up side, my day off was fantastic, I did laundry, drank a ton of coffee and watched old episodes of Dark Shadows. That was my favorite show when I was a kid, I loved it, I was probably too young for it, but my grandma let me watch it. Pure, old fashioned greatness. I didn’t leave my home one single time, I could do this forever, I think deep down inside I could be a great agoraphobic. I could stay in my home, order food in, never leave, and be perfectly happy. Except for when the next Avengers movie comes out, then I will be at the theater to watch the minute it hits the screen.

Today is my Monday/Thursday, that makes me happy, this weekend I have the Ladies that Lunch. Oh I would leave my abode for that as well, once a month get dressed up and leave the house. Perfect. Does anyone else feel that way? You could just stay in your pajamas for days on end, never seeing anyone, reading, eating, being alone. It’s great for introspection, I could solve all my problems if I just had time to sit and think about them for a while, uninterrupted. This is why we do not have world peace, no one gets any real alone time anymore. The world leaders should each take a month, the same month, go inside, and not come out until they figure out why they can’t get along with anyone, and why there are starving people in the world. I am brilliant. People just need to listen to me more often, or for the first time.

Ok, now for the word of the day: utopia – an ideal place, or state. Sentence: I dream of a utopia where everyone dresses according to their body type, their actual body type, not their imagined body type.

Word of the Day and Date Night

Last night was date night with the Irishman, something we have not done in a while, due to him being ill and, well, just busy with life. We will not let it go so long till our next date night. I enjoyed it immensely, we went to the movies and saw, are you ready for it, The Avengers. I had to come clean with him and tell him I had actually seen it three times before last night. I am clocking my fourth time to see the amazing Joss Whedon Avengers movie. I loved sharing it with the Irishman the best, watching him discover what I have known forever, that Joss Whedon is brilliance personified. He has said we need to see it again, a heartfelt I agree was issued from myself.

Today is my day off, I will be doing laundry, staying in my pajamas for a long time, then lunch with Alex. A good day off indeed, if only I did not have to do laundry, which I do, it has become a necessity.

On an alturistic note, the Irishman received an email from St Baldricks last night stating they had raised 28.4 million dollars so far this year. I am so proud of him for being part of this amazing organization. Raising money for research to cure cancers that infect children, with their main fundraisers being people who raise money and shave their heads. That is truly incredible, if you have to choose a charity to support I urge you to look into this one and choose it!

Now brings me to a new bit in the blog called word of the day, my friend Kissa said I should incorporate this into my blog. So, folks here is the word of the day: discombobulated: confused, scattered in thought. used in a sentence: Yesterday at work I was completely discombobulated all day due to lack of sleep.

There you have it folks, another great day in the works, I hope you all have a fantastic day.

Fun Work

Today is my first Friday of the week, and yes I do find myself enjoying these days off. I am loving having a day off in the middle of the week, it is a treat, it feels so decadent, to have nothing to do on a Wednesday.

So Elizabeth Anne bought me a new camera for Mother’s Day, I have been playing with it since Sunday. It is the Kodak EasyShare camera and it is purple! So cool, I took a picture of Nocona this morning, and it looks so good! I cannot wait to take pictures of everything, like Tessa, the dog, squirrels, you know, normal things.

I listen to my favorite morning radio show on IHeart Radio, Kidd Kraddick in the Morning on KISSFM 106.1; well this morning they are talking about the show I hate the most. The Bachorlette, good lord, I hope they hurry because it is brutal. I don’t watch, have never watched, will never watch, and don’t want to hear. Whew relief, they have moved on to making fun of Chris Humphries. That I can handle.

This morning I brought my coffee with me, I have a giant Starbucks insulated cup, hot coffee through a straw. Yum. Love it, I stole the idea from my friend Linda’s husband, we were hanging out one evening and he got coffee from the coffee shop and was drinking from a straw. It was hot coffee. I asked Linda about it, as I had never seen anyone do that. She explained he had a teeth whitening done and wasn’t willing to give up his coffee (who can blame him) and this keeps the coffee from staining his teeth. Pure brilliance. So, I have stolen this, I don’t do it all the time, but I have adopted it for sometimes. So thank you Linda and Bill for the great idea.

I have to tell you all about my group at work; I am really enjoying this group, with this particular supervisor. True story, when I first came to this department, after training, he was my floor walker, very knowledgeable and helpful. Really wants to see people succeed. It is very refreshing to work for someone of that caliber. Anyway, he asked if we wanted to make our area fun, so we said yes and everyone contributed some funds and one of the women went shopping. Our area is now ready for summer, it is very colorful and fun, we have beach balls, pinwheels, kites and all sorts of fun things. I will take a picture with my new camera and upload it tomorrow so you all can see. We are the only group that has decorated and now every time I walk in, I smile. It just makes me happy.

On that note my friends I shall bid you all adieu, Happy Friday, or Tuesday if it is your Tuesday. I wish you all the best.

Here’s to a Good Day

I think I need a weekend to rest up from my weekend, I am so tired, I had to watch Real Housewives of New Jersey last night, so it was a late night for me. I didn’t watch the last hour of the series finale of Desperate Housewives because I could not wait to watch RHONJ, I don’t know what is happening to me. It was a wild ride last night, Teresa is in denial, her brother is frustrated, and oh yes, Teresa’s husband is a donkey. He is aggravating the situation between brother and sister. He doesn’t want them to reconcile, you can see how he is enjoying this friction. I feel bad for Teresa and Joey, it is sad to watch, however, watch I do.

A full week is ahead of me, although for my day off in the middle of the week, I do believe I have nothing, I do believe I will be able to just be in the apartment and catch up on laundry and my dvr. What a thought, what freedom, oh perhaps a morning workout, by morning I do mean 10 or 11. I cannot work out early in the morning. It’s too much, my old heart can’t take it, I have to wake up slowly, have my pot of coffee, then workout.

I am looking forward to an easy weekend, well, maybe not easy, the Irishman has his children, which means his girls are with me on Saturday. Perhaps I will contact Tessa’s mother and see if she can spend the night Friday night and see the girls. She loves being with them so much and they are very kind to her, indulging her in what she wants to do. Maybe it is a pool kind of Saturday that is a thought, I’ll tell her mom to pack her swimsuit. The Irishman’s girls already have new suits, so they are ready to go, that is it, that is what I will do. Whew, there weekend planned, well Saturday, after that I don’t have to plan, Sunday the Irishman is off work, so he spends the day with his children, I have the day off.

I have several books I want to read, some movies I would like to see, the possibilities are endless, I’ll figure it out. Here is to a good week for all of us, I hope everyone has a Starbucks kind of week.

Calling All Women

Well, it is Mother’s Day again, this year I am not going to bore you all by going on about what a perfect mother I had. I did, just for the record, have a perfect mother. No this year I want to address all of the women that are not behaving as they should as women. I have never disrespected another woman by sleeping with, inappropriately texting, emailing or facebooking a man who is taken. If you are a woman and engaged in these activities with a man who is with a different woman, please stop. You are an embarrassment to all womankind. You deserve nothing less than extreme punishment, you should be shunned by all polite society. Does your family know what you do? I hope your husband, brother, father or coworker, really anyone, sees your phone, email, facebook account. you deserve every bad thing on earth to happen to you.

Most women these days disgust me by their bad, disrespectful behavior. I choose the women to blame, because as my dad once told me, men would not behave badly if women turned them down. Interesting coming from a man who never even thought about behaving badly with my mother. But he totally understood men, they are really little boys who never grow up that will get away with what they can.

So, women, today, on this day, Mother’s Day, make a promise to all other women, I will behave in a manner that is respectful to my sisters. WE are all sisters after all, sisters in Christ, sisters in womanhood, respect that. You respect me, I’ll respect you, and we can change the world.

Going Incognito

So last night was Rachel’s birthday party, I must say I was looking forward to celebrating the occasion, as Rachel is fast becoming one of my favorite people. I was not disappointed, it was so much fun. It was supposed to be an outdoor party and it was for about 45 minutes, then the rain started to come in. So inside we all went, the food was great, the alcohol in abundance and the company was amazing. I got to meet new people, and see some people I have not seen in a while and had great conversations with all. The music was a single young man that was just fantastic, he played so many great songs, just him and his guitar, he did such an amazing job.

Everyone looked good, the birthday girl especially in her electric blue dress, Calvin Klein if I am not mistaken. I want to thank Rachel for including us on the guest list, it was a great time!

These are friends of the Irishman, I told him last night if we ever break up, I get them in the settlement agreement. He said he is not giving them the choice of going with me because he knows they would pick me. No worries, he doesn’t have to make that decision for them as we are not breaking up, I would still steal them from him though.

Today is full on pot of coffee day, along with tons of moisturizer and no makeup today, no one would be able to recognize me. I am going incognito, I hope you all have a great incognito day!

Whedon Friday

I want to talk about The Avengers, I know you are all sick of me talking about this movie, but seriously, I need you all to go see it so I can give all kinds of spoilers. I am going to give you all until the end of May, then, all bets are off. I will be spilling all, by then the world should have seen it. So, forewarned you all are. The Avengers holds 17 all time box office records so far. Joss Whedon is brilliance personified.

Today is Friday, I hope Rachel likes her present that I picked out from the Irishman and myself. I like it and would love to own one, so my thought is, if I love it, so will the recipient. I have a great dress to wear, fantastic shoes and I am ready for a party to celebrate something good.

So happy Friday everyone, I hope you have a great weekend, to all of the Mom’s out there happy Mother’s Day.

Happy Thor’s Day to One and All

So today is Thursday, yes once again, it is upon us, or if you prefer Thor’s Day, which is what this day, started out being. I do believe I am going to call it Thor’s Day from this point on. So happy Thor’s Day to all of you.

I did enjoy my day off yesterday, found a birthday present for Rachel; the party is Friday night, so that is good I found something. I think it is pretty cool, I hope she likes it.

I have to admit waking up was hard today, I am very tired today, perhaps about 4 I will have a 5 hour energy drink so I can get some energy and stay awake until at least 9. Tonight is the season finale of Vampire Diaries and The Big Bang Theory; I really want to watch them. I should also get some laundry done, I did some yesterday, but it is a never ending thing at my house. I hate doing laundry; I hate the folding and putting away. If I could hire someone to do it for me, I would, however most housekeepers do not do laundry. That would be my main reason for hiring one. So, oh well, guess it is up to me to continue to do the laundry.

I took a huge chance today, I wore a white skirt, wearing white for me is always a huge deal, because I am completely clumsy and spill things all the time. It is crazy, at my age one would think that I had become at least a little graceful, but no, not me, I am a spiller from way back. I cannot even begin to imagine what I will be when I get older; I will totally be one of those old women who have stains everywhere. I really hope someone will be there to take care of me and make sure I have clean, unstained clothes to wear. At least to important functions, maybe not my at home clothes, but going out to dinner and parties and things, I really want to be clean for those types of events. So if you are reading this Elizabeth Anne, this will be your job, make sure your mom always has clean clothes when she is 90+.

Tomorrow is Friday, the day of the party; I am taking off two hours so I can get ready and look fabulous, not as fabulous as the birthday girl, of course, but still fabulous enough.

Looks are Deceiving

I was listening to Kidd Kraddick on my way to work yesterday morning and they were replaying the interview they did with Mark Ruffalo. He said something that literally took my breath away; he said that he was so attracted to his wife that he couldn’t imagine being any other way.  Really, that is the way we all want our significant others to feel about us. That they are so attracted to us physically that they cannot imagine life being any other way. When he said that it literally took my breath away, I felt sad, sad for me. I want to feel like the person I am with feels that way about me, that when they look at me they are so attracted to me they can’t imagine life without me.

I know my dad felt that way about my mom; they held hands, when one left the other to go to town they would kiss like they were never going to see each other again. Very romantic, very loving, I know my dad was attracted to my mom, and he could never imagine being any other way.

In today’s society I believe it is frowned upon for a man to feel that way about his wife, they are supposed to go after “hot” women. If a woman is not “hot” by societies standards then men are supposed to keep after it until they find the ever allusive hot girl. When did it become a bad thing to be pretty or cute? What happens to women like me, who are not hot by today’s standards? Who are merely cute, or pretty? We are cast aside, left on the roadside to commiserate with other non-hot women.

Here is the thing, why do men think they deserve a “hot” woman? Do they take care of themselves? Are they themselves “hot”? If you are, and you look like The Rock, then yes, go for the hot female, if you are not and are not rich you are not going to get “hot”.

As for me, I don’t want to be called hot, I want to be called pretty or cute, in some lights beautiful, I want to be with someone who appreciates who I am. Empress of the Universe, known and unknown worlds, bow down before me humans.

Monday’s Report

I have determined that I was born on the wrong planet, I should have been born on Asgard, I am positive I would have been a female warrior. Complete with leather pants and a sword, what a thought. Perhaps next time, one can only wish upon a star. I know I am going on and on about The Avengers movie, but it is worth all of the superlative words I have at my disposal. If Disney doesn’t option Joss Whedon for the next Avengers movie they are, well, major idiots.

This weekend was filled with shopping, first off Friday I met my friend Rachel at the Galleria, which as we all know is my mother ship. I actually helped her spend money, she chose some gorgeous dresses, I can’t wait to see what she is going to wear to her party. Her birthday party is this coming Friday, very excited to celebrate her birthday.

Saturday was not a shopping day, it was a cleaning like a dervish day and well, yes I did take the Irishman’s girls to get new swimsuits, so I guess I did shop on Saturday. They played outside while I cleaned, and then after shopping it was pizza and movie night.

Sunday; which is the Irishman’s day off, I left him with his girls and went, oh yes, shopping, this time at Stonebriar. I wandered aimlessly, well, not so aimlessly, I was on the hunt for a jumpsuit, I tried one on at BCBG in the Galleria, and wow, I looked amazing. However, I am not in the mood to spend $248.00 on one. I did find one at Macy’s but I didn’t like the color. So Wednesday I will search some more, I am determined to wear one to the party this coming Friday.

Wednesday is my day off, am seriously thinking of see The Avengers again, I will be going this coming Sunday with the Irishman. But I have an urge to see it again, and again and again. Joss Whedon has taken characters that should never be together and has woven an intricate, complex, fun-filled ride.

Happy Happy Monday People! I hope it is a great one for you all!
