You can't always get what you want

but if you can, why fight it

Winery and more!
So, again...the weekend seemed to FLY by! Thursday night we went to watch the boys play hockey up at Space City...of course by going and watching them play, I mean I sat at the bar and socialized with all the other girls there to 'watch them play'.

Friday we relaxed and hung out with everyone at Bob's house at night. Saturday we did nothing...literally nothing all day. I will be the first to admit that we are constantly going, going, going and a day to relax would be great...but on the rare occasion I get a day like Saturday (one, maybe 2 a year) I find I am utterly bored and super fidgety. It was a long, boring day.

....Anyways, yesterday we went to Haak Winery with Brian's company. I had never been to a winery and only thought those existed in napa valley state side. It has only been recently that I have began to love wine...Australian wine is my favorite. We got some samples, had 'wine pairing' foods like cheeses, breads, fruit and spreads, and listened to some pretty decent music. There was a good turn out, unfortunately, we think most of the people there were from corporate because neither Brian or Chris recognized anyone. We were able to walk freely through the vineyard too, which was nice. The president of the company was there, I had never spoken to her, she knows Brian though through word of mouth. Anyways..I went up to her because she had a cute little dog sitting on her lap and I just asked her if it was hers and she said no, it was her grand-puppy. So we started talking and I told her that when Brian comes out, she needs to convince him to let me get a small she said OK and when Brian came out, she flagged him down and told him he needs to buy me one...LOL. He just rolled his eyes, and said 'uh huh'. As we were leaving she said she was going to start sending him emails about it, lol.

I have a 'career presentation' thingy Wednesday at a vet hospital (pets...not old people). It's not a dream job, but it's something for now until this stimulus money starts rolling out and into these community health programs that they promised. With the amount of money Brian brings home monthly, I really only need a minimum wage job to pay the remaining bills. So we will see....

This coming Friday marks 5 years for Brian and me being together...5 years! I sometimes look back at where we were 5 years ago, and can not believe where we are now. We have changed so much and have gone through so's really hard to believe it all fit into a 5 year time period.

Well I suppose it's time to get back to watching NASA TV...they are completing their last space walk to repair Hubble. This is the last time anyone is ever going to be touching the Telescope...which just blows my mind when I think about it.

times are changing
So real quick. I havn't watched the Family Feud in FOREVER...probably a good 7 or 8 years...not since Louie Anderson. I never watched it when Richard Karn or Kern or w/e was host, the guy from Home Improvement, but i know he hosted it for awhile. im flipping through channels and its on, so i watch it and it gets to the end when the winners win and the loosers loose. Remember WAYYYYYY back when Family Feud started and the 1st guy who hosted it would almost make out and grope the ladies when introducing them and saying good bye. Well what they do now is kiss the hand, not even kiss it so much as peck it. Boy have things changed!

dirty joke time!
So a cop brings 3 ducks into jail, and one by one they go into see the judge to find out their sentence. 1st duck walks in,
Judge: Whats your name?
Duck 1: my name is Quack.
Judge: and what were you doing?
Duck 1: blowing bubbles in the pond.
Judge: That's it?
Duck 1: yeah...
Judge: ok, well you're free to go.

Duck 2 walks in,
Judge: whats your name?
Duck 2: my name is Quack Quack.
Judge: and what were you doing in the pond?
Duck 2: blowing bubbles.
Judge: that's it?
Duck 2: yeah...
Judge: ok, well you're free to go.

Duck 3 walks in,
Judge: let me guess, your name is Quack Quack Quack?
Duck 3: no, my name is bubbles.

ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh SNAP!

damn weather and work
im going to work tonight, and of course there is a nice 'severe thunderstorm watch' just posted. I decided to work mainly mornings this summer to avoid this...what sucks is im working 1 night a week..and i know this will happen again.

They basically told us the procedure incase weather happens...basically im sure by now they have been alerted and told all the residents a watch was in effect. Then they have procedures for each of the other watches/warnings (tornado).

I was basically told if they are in the dining room when a severe thunderstorm happens we close the blinds (which are paper thin) and stay there. (most occurances of tornados happen between the hours of 3 and 6 in perfect, RIGHT OVER MY SHIFT). So ok...if the sirens go off they either stay where they are or go in the hall. STILL NO BASEMENT! and well...if a tornado hits, we are all dead b/c everyone is in a dining room surrounded by glass protected by paper thin blinds...and sharp objects.

We cant force them to do anything...i guess a few years back a few of them were outside when the sirens went off and they refused to come in...i guess they got hit by hail or something....idiots.

Well i basically told them 'tornados (next to airplanes) are my biggest fear and you better believe im going to the basement the MINUTE i want to.' yeah...they wern't happy but they cant keep me in a glass room damn it!

Damn it!! why cant it just stay winter all fucking year like in Antartica!

to top it all off...ill be paranoid as all hell about the cats..wondering if they will be ok.

Too Cute!

So i know a lot of people have seen the "Lazy Sunday' Skit from SNL by Chris Parnell and Andy Samberg, but this is a re-make of it by two 11 year old boys called 'Lazy Monday'. If you havnt seen the Lazy Sunday should watch it because its probably the funniest thing i have seen on SNL in 2 years! ENJOY:)

I hope i dont forget
I gotta call my mom tomorrow. it's her birthday. Along with Oprahs, if anyone cares, HAHA.

"shoot me first"
I hate when you watch a show once in a great while and when you do watch it, it always seems to be the same episode you have already seen.

sick, who eats a moldy sandwich?
Dear Santa...

Dear Santa,

This year I've been busy!

In July I got in line at the supermarket at the same time as someone else and I didn't yield (-8 points). In September I bought porn for steph_vicious (-10 points). Last Sunday on a flight to Bangladesh, I stole the emergency flight information card (-40 points). In February momoluvable and I donated clothes to the needy (11 points). Last Saturday I helped fairydust2002 see the light (8 points).

Overall, I've been naughty (-39 points). For Christmas I deserve a moldy sandwich!

wont it ever stop??
I feel sick...really really sick:( it fucking sucks and never fucking ends. I was sick with a cold for 3 fucking weeks starting in the beginning of October. i FINALLY started feeling better and then BAM...i start work up and get sick AGAIN. Now im getting over that cold and i feel like im going to fucking throw up. FUCK THIS.

common sense, huh??
If i was a journalist/reporter and my boss said 'go stand in the middle of a hurricane' id say 'oh hell yeah!' i still say that next to chasing tornado's, being in the path of a cat 4 or cat 5 hurricane would be the COOLEST thing EVER!

i have been watching the hurricane coverage all day pretty much flipping between CNN and the weather channel and i was so envious of all those lucky bastards who were standing in the streets covering the storm.

Some day....some day i will be one of them, that i promise.
