Oh, What a Circus

Friday, August 31st, 2007

Wow, ten years. I remember that I was staying at my parents’ house for some reason that weekend. Sunday morning I came downstairs, my dad was watching the news as usual. I stuck my head into the living room and he said, “the princess is dead.” I said, “What princess?” “Princess Diana,” he replied. First […]

How High’s the Water, Mama?

Thursday, August 30th, 2007

Erm, not very high at all at the moment. My neighborhood is in the midst of a huge water main break.  It’s 6pm now, we haven’t had water since about 12:30 and the authorities won’t even hazard a guess as to when it will be restored.  The pisser is, the damn water main isn’t even […]

Free At Last!

Wednesday, August 29th, 2007

I canNOT believe it. After 72 months…72 stamps…72 checks in the mail…..seventy-freaking-two… OUR CAR IS PAID OFF!!!!! *does the Snoopy dance of joy* I don’t think the reality of it has quite sunk in yet; it’s hard to imagine No More Car Payments. Not for a long time, anyway, I hope. Wow. And what I […]

My Baby Takes the Morning Train

Monday, August 27th, 2007

OHMY!!! I’m so excited! I’d thought that 3:10 to Yuma wasn’t due out until October, but now the official site is saying September 7! Kick ass! I was gonna go see Shoot em’ Up starring Clive that weekend, but Clivester will just have to wait. Badass charismatic Russell slinging a six-shooter and wearing a duster […]

Drive-By Hotting: NewsStand Edition

Friday, August 24th, 2007

September 07 is a lucky month for Clive fans! (And really, who isn’t a Clive fan?) The pic above is from the new Details magazine. Mmmm. I just know that’s a gin-based drink The Clivester has in his hand there. No pussy vodka for my Clive. Anyway, he’s also on the cover of Details and […]

You may already be a winner

Thursday, August 23rd, 2007

There I was last week, IM-ing with Loupy about our Lord E, and the next thing you know, I was over at makestickers.com (that site is like CRACK to me, btw!) making up these bumper stickers to profess our faith: You get a much better price if you order 5, so I did. That’s two […]

Medieval Muck

Wednesday, August 22nd, 2007

**Warning: This started out as a simple grousing about some stupid medieval movies coming soon, but it turned into a really long rant. ** You all know I am an obsessive medieval history freak. As such, I tend to get suckered into every medieval movie that comes down the pike. I see far more of […]

Goals

Monday, August 20th, 2007

I hate goals.  I’m really sick of having goals. I don’t mean grand, sweeping life goals like, “move to Scotland and pursue a creative career in desktop wallpaper design.”  I mean starting each day confronted with a list of “have tos.”  “Today I have to…”  “This week we have to go to..” “Must remember to..” […]

Drive-By Hotting: Holy Edition

Friday, August 17th, 2007

Hear the sizzling on down through the years… Cast your imagination back..back.. It’s 1956. The family is gathered in the living room for Uncle Miltie. You’re in the kitchen, perhaps fixing some popcorn (on the stove, no microwave), or a plate of cookies and milk (because in the 50′s people can have as many cookies […]

How Great Thou Art

Thursday, August 16th, 2007

As you may know, this week is another holy time of year for people of my faith. This is the week that we mark the time when Our Lord returned back to the celestial kingdom from whence He came. But this is not a sad time, rather a time to celebrate and give thanks for […]

Lucky 13

Tuesday, August 14th, 2007

The happiest of birthdays to my very best friend in the whole world!

Enchanting

Monday, August 13th, 2007

I really don’t feel like doing a big long write-up of Tim the Enchanter’s wedding right now, but suffice to say that everyone looked lovely, the food was great, the decorations were swellegant, and everything went off without a glitch.  It was nice finally meeting everyone’s families, though I’m sorry I didn’t get to talk […]

Marshall the Forces

Friday, August 10th, 2007

…call General Eisenhower, and pull on your boots because there’s one day till D-Day! D as in Donna. Yup, Tim The Enchanter’s wedding day is almost upon us. Tonight we have rehearsal and party…at a restaurant I’ve wanted to try, so that’s cool. Then tomorrow is it. The almighty Lord E has taken mercy on […]

Home, Dream Home 5

Wednesday, August 8th, 2007

So, I’ve been sitting around for the past two weeks, feeling like an extra in Apocalypse Now thanks to our Pittsburgh weather. Seriously, it feels like the inside of someone’s ASS out there. Can’t go out, can’t walk to shops, can’t get any exercise outdoors because I’d die. So what else is there to do […]

Weekend Wind-down

Tuesday, August 7th, 2007

Now that those birthdays are past, here’s a quick recap of current events. On Saturday, BW went out to a bachelor party/night out for our pal Tim the Enchanter. I went for a fabulous sushi dinner at Chaya with Cheri, then we returned home to subject ourselves to bad medieval movies with hot guys.  Movies […]

How Cool Can Hotness Be?

Monday, August 6th, 2007

Today is no mere Hollywood Birthday drive-by Hotting. No. Today is more like I drive by your house and fling a bloody Molotov cocktail of Hotness through your picture window, then circle around the block to finish off the job with a few incendiary grenades and a blowtorch. Because today’s birthday belongs to The Man, […]

Drive-By Hetfielding

Friday, August 3rd, 2007

Because I like to torture myself, let’s all raise a shot of Jagermeister and give a birthday toast to Mr. James Hetfield! We love ya, ya big fucking dickhead! *sniffle*…Misfits shirt….*sobs*…..

Everyone’s Girlfriend

Thursday, August 2nd, 2007

Kicking off a few straight days of awesome August birthdays today with Ms. Myrna Loy! Myrna. Wow. Who doesn’t love her? She was perfect! No, not a stunning beauty or dead sexy like other actresses of the time. But quite simply adorable! Not for her the diva roles like Crawford or Davis. She played normal […]

A Sneaky Peak

Wednesday, August 1st, 2007

Ok peeps…like I said, no “after” pictures because I will not post those until the new lights are installed and the walls are painted. And I have no idea when that will be. But clicky ye here to see some “befores” and “durings.”
