Quickie update

Monday, June 30th, 2008

FiL is still in the ICU.  Over the weekend, it looked like he was doing much better — his lungs are mainly clear from fluid and they woke him up from sedation and took him off of the respirator.  Sunday they decided that he still isn’t breathing well enough on his own, so they put […]

Fight the Suck!

Or maybe I should file this under “Now That’s Bad Eatin’!” Some of you may know of my undying hatred for PF Chang’s. The smugness; “Now, this is soy sauce, and I’m going to be mixing it with this chinese mustard to make a custom sauce just for you!” Oh, quelle exotic! *eye roll* Goodness […]

OMG what a crazy weekend! First off, BW’s father is still in the hospital. His kidney and everything else is mostly ok, but he just cannot seem to shake the pneumonia. They have him hooked up to oxygen, and he still has fluid in his lungs. They are beginning to wonder if maybe he had […]

Solstice Synopsis

Here we are, half way through 2008 already! Seemed to me like a good time to give a mid-year status report on Celebrity Crushes. Click here to revisit how things stood at the end of 2007. So far 2008 has seen major shakeups. Tragedy, inevitable downfalls, upswings, and new and unexpected players on the field…it’s […]

Sit DOWN, Rivers-hag!

Right now, I’m calling out a bloodhunt on Joan Rivers!  Look what she said about mah man Russell on British tv! Nuh-huh, bitch!  You do NOT talk smack about Rusty like that, I will take you out!  *snap* I’d say, “I will cut you”, but damn I couldn’t mess your scary-ass face up any more […]

…to go back to your summer, BW’s dad has been brought down to PGH  and hospitalized for pneumonia.  *sigh*  Anyway, they say he already seems better than he has been the past few days, but they want to closely monitor him to try to keep any infection from reaching his (transplanted) kidney.  But he’s only […]

Thought du’Jour

Overheard on this morning’s bus: 1.  “Man, I love me some fine-ass boys!” 2. “Saturday I was tryin to watch me that Penguins game, and I didn’t know what the fuck was going on!” Indeed, indeed.  I’m with ya, sister. That second one, especially, is true on many levels.
