I love someecards.
While I very much enjoyed watching Sex and the City and I will likely very much enjoy watching the movie sometime in the future…I have to say, the *spoilers* out there are well, rather lame. I want to know something BIG that happens. I’m kinda bored just reading, I guess I’ll have to watch.
All I can say is I hope Big and Carrie do NOT get married. I am likely the *Carrie* person sort of in the group of friends who bring friends together. But a fan of Carrie I am not. Aidan anyone? How could she break his heart like that????? “YOU BROKE MY HEART!!!!” I can hear still hear him today….all because of BIG? Do women really like him/them together??? Really? I’ve always had my heart set with Steve and Miranda…and from what I hear, well, no spoilers here. Looking forward to seeing an adorable Charlotte and Harry as well. But Carrie? Bah. I’ll watch her for the fancy dresses.
If you follow my twitters (or status updates on Facebook) you might have noticed I’ve had a wee obsession with “We Are the World” the last two evenings.
Why? Why? Why on earth can’t I stop Twitting about We Are the World?
Well…you see, I’m preparing for Erin’s wedding. And trying to figure out what karaoke performance we’s all can do as a group. And this song came to mind. I can see it as an “end of the night, closing time” song right?
Ok, I think I scared Erin a little bit…
The more I think about it this evening…the more I’m thinking this idea is best suited for a THEME PARTY at my house. You know, along the lines of the Happy 21st Birthday BTTF theme party? Or the Arrested Development Finale party? Oh how I love a good theme party! And I can make this one into a charity gig too!
Now if I want to be Diana Ross (as mentioned last night, so I can sing along side of Mark in the role of Michael Jackson) I will most certainly need to get my hands on one of these precious goodies.
I’m wondering how many more times Mark can stand hearing this song before he breaks up with me. Should I ask? His answer “why, you trying to drive me away?”
Oh the props, the props!!!
After a closer review we would need the following:
One Quilted Fitted Jacket (Lionel Ritchie)
Several full staches…
Even more full beard/staches…
At last three USA for Africa Sweatshirts (Dayna, can you assist with this?)
Vertical Eyebrows (Steve Perry)
Extremely voluminous frizzy perm (Diana Ross)
Sparkly silver socks and matching glove (singular) (you know who…)
Also, one over the top gold lamé embroidered middle school boy marching band uniform jacket…
No less than 3 Cosby Sweaters (1 brightly colored)
HUGE dark sunglasses, several pair
Twisty rope workout headband, neon orange (One of the Jackson sisters)
Lots of Manic Panic and shoes made for bouncing
You’d come to my party, right?
The following post has me STILL laughing out loud, especially when clicking the link to the meatballs.
These little critters make me laugh. I want one. Or two. Every plant guy needs a friend, right?
Even better, everyone needs a little naked pink man running across their blog… (SERIOUSLY, IF YOU AREN’T A LINK CLICKER ON MY BLOG YOU NEED TO CLICK THIS ONE.)
Hello!!! I’ve been saving this one for a while. That ridiculous proud GPA smile makes the shirt even better.
This post? A little disturbing, I didn’t laugh until I got to the 6th comment…
Bah humbug. Bah humbug.
I take great pride in being active and connected and having many things to do in life…and even more people to do these things with. I love my life this way I really really do. But MAN sometimes, I just need time off.
I’ve finally recovered from the crazy work week last week, all in a day’s work in the field I chose to work in, that I do not complain about. I was just sort of kind of wishing I could have taken a day or two off to catch up with myself and reconnect with that person who lives in my house with me. And of course, that didn’t happen at all because of a surprise situation (which of course is also part of my job from time to time, I would have just preferred another time.)
This past weekend was really nice. Mark’s parents came and stayed with us and celebrated their 49th Wedding Anniversary with their son and his *lady friend* as his dad likes to refer to me as…his mom said until we are legal, that’s what he will be calling me hee hee! We went to dinner/BPO Glen Miller Concert and picked up after hours desserts from the Chocolate Bar on Satuday night. On Sunday I got up very early to drop Mark off at the Buffalo Marathon where he ran a leg of the relay, came home and took a small nap then weaved my way through the city to pick up Mark (who I am so proud of! Good job honey!) and went to brunch at Ambrosia. After brunch we hit up Old Fort Niagara for the afternoon came home for leftovers and homemade elderberry pie- my favorite and then played the card game FLINCH until Midnight when Mark crashed. Monday we walked through our neighborhood down to Caffe Aroma for coffee/pastries and the view. (And Talking Leaves of course, Mark’s mom loves a good bookstore too!) I think his parents left sometime around 2-3ish that afternoon and I’m not at liberty to recall what we might have done for the rest of our weekend. I know a few naps were involved.
Aside: Mark’s Dad has bought his wife a corsage every year for 49 years since they’ve been married. I think that’s super sweet and no pressure at all for Mark.
Of course, I also do think that despite having the 3 day weekend off, entertaining visitors *especially future-in-laws* means no lounging around without pants, grabbing a beer (or a Mark) and checking the blogs. Hence, Tuesday was not REALLY NOT welcome. I did not want to do ANYTHING this week and yet had about 100 loose ends to catch up with along with a few hours of work still left undone at the other job.
So hurrah for Thursday when loose ends (work wise) are caught up and back to normal!
Tonight I’m skipping out on the League Annual Dinner to stay at home and get together information for League ironically enough. I was supposed to be traveling with Ms. Audrey my superfantabulous organizedenthusiastic partner in New Membershipness to Toronto this weekend for a Regional Conference.
Sometimes you just need to go back to basics.
Last night? My schedule cleared. With no meetings to attend and no Wing Chun class for Mark…we decided to take a lovely stroll along the water. I was looking for the part of the Riverwalk where you could go OUT INTO THE RIVER however being clueless we ended up by the Yacht Club, CPO, Boathouse area and just went up and down the river watching the sun go down. Lovely.
Later we found the Riverwalk entrance behind Rich Products off of Niagara Street. Good information to use for another time. I am sad, very sad to say that the little park back there is in terrible TERRIBLE disarray. I suppose it shouldn’t surprise me, but it did…tis the entrance area to a lovely walk and directly behind a multi-billion dollar corporation I guess I expected more.
Anyhow…that’s another story.
After our walk we went to the store and picked up a bit of groceries and I spent the remainder of the evening cooking good for you food. I haven’t been cooking much lately. Or reading much. Or hanging out with Mark much…sigh…
I threw together a quick Eggplant Spinach Parm.
And a bunch of veggie/cheese organic whole wheat wraps.
My tummy is very happy.
I was going to blog, but I’m going to bed instead.
I found these.
I gotta tell ya the two last ones are much more within my price range.
I always listen to NPR in the morning. Always. Except this morning, after dropping Mark off I turned the station for some reason, not sure why I work literally three blocks away, and ended up on 97 Rock.
The morning peeps were talking about Jimmy Griffin and how he used to take walks in the cemetery for exercise…the host was asking for a sound clip and the sound person was hesitant to play the clip. In the end it was, well odd because the clip only had the Mayor commenting something along the lines of how he didn’t mind walking in the cemetery as long as he was on the *living* side. Or something along those lines, if anyone out there heard it this morning and can better quote it let me know.
ANYHOW. The next thing that came out of someone’s mouth on air was the best part of my whole morning. I heard, and I kid you not “and to think we could have been interviewing Kirk Cameron this morning.”
KIRK CAMERON? AM I DREAMING?
I know what I heard, but I just dismissed it…until I checked out the front page of Yahoo later on and found this link.
And only now I know why. Cause he wrote a book. (Haven’t been keeping up with Publishers Marketplace lately…)
Still Growing: An Autobiography
Oh Kirk, pleasepleaseplease come to Buffalo and make a public appearance at B&N or Borders so I can meet you. Or volunteer at Roswell Park like you did last year but make sure one of the many people I know who work there know so I can accidentally bump into you…
I love so many things about the Kirk Cameron.com website. I love that I can order an autographed copy of his book. (Happy wedding day Jen/Nick!!) I love that when I click on the enter here button the theme song to Growing Pains merrily spills from my wee computer speakers ON CONTINUOUS LOOP (until you hit the recommended resources link) And I love the wedding picture that shows Kirk and Chelsea when they got married in a little chapel outside of Buffalo, NY.
Oh my. I’m in love with this dress. And Marky likes too.
I WANT I WANT I WANT. And I just know I would find lots of places to wear it again. I would, I really really would!!! Grrrrrr GREEN LADY!! How it matches my glasses so…(out of my size and about $100 more than I’m willing to pay, but?) I could totally get away with this charmer for Erin’s wedding..
And how super cute is this line from Target? Lovelovelove!
AND for a very very good price! Only $40!!! Of course much more practical in Black but since when have I been practical? The little pink number makes me desperately wish that someday I do decide to have 10 of my best friends stand all pretty wearing the same lovely dress in a row together as my Wedding Cabinet. Wedding Cabinet will happen someday but matching dresses unlikely because it would be difficult to choose only 10 *advisors* and having more than 10 people all wearing the same dress gets a little more frightening than cute if you ask me. I think I can officially have 15 as a Cabinet, even more under the Bush Administration rules, as long as they don’t all dressing alike…no one gets hurt.
And this one is super pretty too…thinking about something like this for Gala in the Fall. Although I guess it could work for a wedding too, I’m just still in love with the *one* green one above.
Mark’s parents came to town this weekend to celebrate their 49th Wedding Anniversary. Yesterday, we checked out Old Fort Niagara.
