More information about me that you don't really need to know

I present to you part II of my navel gazing, narcissistic series, "some things about me you may not know:"

Four movies that I do not own but will watch anytime they are on TV, ever.

  1. Oh Brother, Where art Thou?
  2. Karate Kid (part one or part two)
  3. Oceans Eleven
  4. Wizard of Oz
Three things I am very, very afraid of

  1. Mice
  2. Cockroaches
  3. Mirrors in the dark
Two things that overwhelmed me with emotion in the last couple of days

  1. Watching Jeter's last game at Yankee Stadium
  2. The pure, unadulterated deliciousness of the Ramen I am eating right now. 

One thing I think about way too often

  1. My eyebrows 
*Why don't you throw me a bone here people and fill in your answers in the comments? Sometimes I feel like I'm talking to myself. Haha! It's okay.

haiku friday

i got some new paint!
in my living room. it's grey.
my pad looks brand new.

my couch is shabby.
whoo- she's an old, big, green girl.
not so nice looking. 

my bathroom is blue.
it feels like you're under the sea.
while you go potty.

some things about me you may not know

Four things that make me cry 

  1. Listening to Queen and thinking about Freddy Mercury.
  2. The Let It Go song from the Frozen movie.
  3. Pretty much anything about immigrant dads, especially from India but I don't discriminate.
  4. Any version of the star spangled banner. Even poorly sung ones.
Three things I don't care about at all but other people seem to 
  1. Space travel
  2. Robots
  3. Photos of celebrities doing things that real people do.
Two things that seriously piss me off
  1. People who don't vaccinate their children.
  2. The Smashing Pumpkins 
One thing I love about you
  1. That you keep coming back!! Thanks!

haiku friday

so, lets make it work.

bad news

There is just TOO MUCH bad news in the world right now. I cancelled my subscription to the NYTimes. It reminds me of that scene in Roxanne where Steve Martin puts a quarter in the newspaper machine, gets the paper, see all the bad news, and pays another quarter to put it back.

I just can't with all these football players getting in trouble for being A-holes. Why do people beat the s#$* out of their kids? Am I tripping? 94% of parents of 3-4 year olds report hitting their kids in the last year? WTF people? These are children. I will get upset.

And then the ebola? Oh my god. Seriously? Is there nothing we can do to help the people whose insides are turning to mush?

And then with the ISIS and those guys are crazy. I'm not a fortune seer but I'm gonna predict this isn't going to end well.

I don't know people.

Maybe Babe and I should go off the grid. Go live on a farm somewhere and plant poppies or something equally medicinal. The Buddy can play with goats and chickens and we can make soap and crafts and sell them at fairs and along the side of the road.

I got nothing but the fact that it's hot and I have a list as long as my arm.

My pal, the professor sent me this picture today and I love it for so many reasons. This is Joyanna and Buddy when Buddy was about 6 months old? I don't know.

Anyways, I love it for so many reasons and here are some:

Joyanna's face

It reminds me of my old job where my family was completely a part of my workplace.

Buddy is wearing that bear suit. 

Buddy is just sleeping randomly on her pal's lap. It makes me feel very happy and proud that she was a baby who everyone knew. I took her everywhere. I still do. I think that helped make her the person she is today. She is outgoing and brave and she loves people.

just three!

just three weekend pics!

We took a quick trip to Disney this Friday night! We have passes so you can go for a few hours here and there without having to cram it all in. We are spoiled! 


This was buddy this morning. I think she wanted to get ready and go to school about as much as most of us want to get ready and go to work on Monday mornings. Bring back the three day weekend!!

haiku friday

and then one time we
moved from a land of seasons 
to a place with one.

perpetual heat.

just not a heat wave.

BFF told me about this thing called This Life and I don't really know what it is, all I know is I signed in and all of a sudden every photo I ever took was before me. Except not really. I found this pic from almost exactly 10 years ago and I liked it so you can see it now.

August 2004, from a road trip we took to the catskills.

Today is a year since we lost our Grama. I do miss her still but I'm always glad to spend time thinking about her.

Burning Man

I haven't really missed going to Burning Man because I haven't really thought about it much.

I watched this seven minute video today and was just completely reminded about what it is like to live in the desert for a week. Enjoy!
