is up with my slow ass loading on my blog???? that must be why i've only had like 5 hits in a few days.


oh well until it gets figured out, bear with us while we sort out the technical difficulties.

things 'round here have been out of sorts lately. i have been on the edge of the Hanta Virus - Ebola Death Rattle for bout the past 10 days. its one of those where it moves from your throat to your nose to your lungs, back to your nose and finishes with a nice wheeze. i have been one carton of Lucky Strikes and a bottle of Wild Turkey away from trying my hand at singing the blues... or doing the next voice overs for Darth Vader. sheesh.

but i think all is healing. my little cells are working so hard. i should be DROPPING pounds the way my body is working so damned hard. alas, the scales have decided to mock my pain. oh well.

halloween was fun today. we did the Wizard of Oz. yes, i was the Wicked Witch, of course. i looked mahvelous! we were only missing the Scarecrow and some Munchkins... but it turned out pretty ok. i'll post pictures when Jason sends them to me. (the bastard who got me sick by coughing on my pens while i wasn't looking)

also i get to hug my mommie and my daddie in 4 days. *insert Snoopy dance here*
I.CANT.WAIT! i also get to hug on some other family too, but i'm real damn excited about seeing the mom and dad. so what, i'm still a momma's girl. and she'll kick your ass if it were any other way.

so, whats new with you?

momma's girl

one of my new favorite songs...

Baby Girl, by Sugarland

They say in this town, stars stay up all night,
Well, I don’t know, can’t see ‘em for the glow of the neon lights.
An' it's a long way from here to the place where the home fires burn.
Well it's two thousand miles and one left turn.

"Dear Mom and Dad,
Please send money
I’m so broke that it ain’t funny.
Well, I don't need much; just enough to get me through.
Please don’t worry 'cause I'm all right,
I’m playin’ here at the bar tonight.
Well, this time, I’m gonna make our dreams come true.
Well, I love you more than anything in the world,
Your baby girl."

Black jack, blue sky: big town full of little white lies.
Well, everybody’s your friend you can never be sure.
They'll promise fancy cars an' diamond rings,
an' all sorts of shiny things,
But, girl, you’ll remember what your knees are for.

"Dear Mom and Dad,
Please send money
I’m so broke that it ain’t funny.
Well, I don't need much; just enough to get me through.
Please don’t worry 'cause I'm all right,
See, I’m playin’ here at the bar tonight.
Well, this time, I’m gonna make our dreams come true.
Well, I love you more than anything in the world,
Your baby girl."

I know that I’m on my way.
Well, I can tell every time I play.
An' I know it’s worth all the dues I pay,
When I can write to you and say:

"Dear Mom and Dad,
I’ll send money.
I’m so rich that it ain’t funny.
Well it oughtta be more than enough to get you through.
Please don’t worry 'cause I’m all right,
See, I’m stayin’ here at the Ritz tonight
Whaddya know, we made our dreams come true.
An' there are fancy cars an' diamond rings,
But you know that they don't mean a thing.
Well, they all add up to nothin' compared to you.
Well, remember me in ribbons an' curls.
I still love you more than anything in the world:
Your baby girl."

high road

i was informed by allie that i failed to mention my little trip i took this week.

i guess i was so wrapped up in getting it all organized, that i forgot. sorry. but it was fun. thanks for asking!

i went down to Dallas on friday and hung out with my brother, grandmother, aunt and cousins. we got up saturday morning and had an AWESOME breakfast. i cant believe that i get to see them again in only a few weeks. i'm so PSYCHED!
later in the day, i got ready for my friend jenny's wedding. whom i have known since junior high. yes, she witnessed my bad 80's hair and had lived to tell about it.

the wedding was amazing. beautiful. i cried the WHOLE way through. seriously.

the reception was perfect. i didnt dance with the groom, but i did dance with the bride... so that was as it should be. i hung out with one of our friends from high school and her husband and we had THE BEST TIME!

i still can't believe that jenny, juan, jenga, jgt, got married. and her husband's a cutie too. CONGRATULATIONS YOU 2!

after dragging myself back to my aunt's house at midnight, i dragged my ass back out of bed at 4 am to head down to georgetown to finish the rest of my trip.

damn was that EARLY!!!!

i got to Ang's house a little after 8. she was pretty freaked even though she was not showing it. ya see, she and HER hubby have been married 10 years and were going on a cruise for their anniversary. so i went down to help watch her monsters kids. 4 of them. from the ages of 18 months to 11 years. 2 girls 2 boys. in that order. good thing they love their aunt christel and were perfect demons angels for me the whole time. we also had grandparents who had full-time duty and i was just crowd control. so i had cheerleading practice and homework duty for the girls while grandma and grandpa had t-ball practice and the toddler. it was fun. it was way fun. i still find myself doing cheers in my head... but that should go away soon, we hope.

i stayed at another friend's house while i was there. and by "friend" i mean "damned near family". i met their son, my senior year of high school and spent LOTS of time at their house in the years following. Mike and i had the old pact that if neither one of us was married by 28.... we would marry each other. we all know how that turned out. but the cool thing is that even though i didnt marry their son, we are still family. and they welcomed E into their open arms. they even put us up the week before our wedding and we had our rehearsal dinner at their house. so i stayed with them. even though they have an empty nest, it was perfectly fine to stay there. the funny thing was when mike was leaving to go back to his house and i was on the inside of the house and he was on the outside.... its usually the other way around. i said something about "this feels different" and he said, "nah, it's just right." love that boy. his whole damn fam i love. if you met them, you would too. thanks, B's for a terrific time! love you all.

so Ang should get back on sunday and i will hear how that went.

so i'm home. i still haven't unpacked. my lotion exploded in one of the pockets. that ought to be fun to clean out. E and i have a date tonight... and life is still terribly perfect.

earlier this year a very good friend of mine found out she had breast cancer. they have done the mastectomy, and have started the chemo. and i am not (physically) there for her. i am here. and its driving me NUTS!

so, in my surfing during sunday morning, i found this website for the Boobie-Thon. and in a bizarre act of love and feeling helpless, and totally against my modesty, i went ahead and submitted a photo.

had i not already had the picture on my computer, i probably would not have sent it in, but since i had taken it as a joke for E, i figured, "hell, why not?"

i'm not nude... so don't go looking for it. you will be sorely let down. but it's still a great rack. for a good cause.

so. my boobs are now out on the internets. we all knew it was only a matter of time.

(and i know there are a few of you who know my views on the cancer societies... etc. but this was done for a LOCAL reason, not a GLOBAL one. so back down off your hypocrisy box)
