current playlist super awesomesauce

it's not so much of a playlist as just the most recently added records.  ok, well, maybe that is a playlist.  nobody told me there would be math.

 rihanna's first 3 records
cake, showroom of compassion (i love me some cake, but this is the most down tempo of all of their records, and thus is my least favorite. this makes me sad.)
kill bill 1 & 2 soundtracks
adele, 19 and 21 (down, set, hike!)

and dats how i roll.
speaking of rolling, josh is almost finished with my rolling library ladder.  i am so stoked.  i think i will put a big library dictionary on a pedestal or something.

k, so i'm an idiot

seems i set the post font color the same as the background.  that's what i get for trying to get all fancy.
the take-home message is that, at the end of the day, or what have you, design templates are there for a reason.  best to leave the fancy schmancy stuff to the design-y peeps and focus instead on publishing the sundry bits that dribble out of my head.  priorities.

 also, movie popcorn is yummy but not nearly worth the bits that get stuck in my gums.  15 years ago, my dentist informed me that I have a good-size gap between my teeth and gums.  i threw caution to the wind on saturday whilst watching kung fu panda 2 (i heart jack black) and i continue to spit out bits of popcorn.

and remember: if life gives you melons, you're probably dyslexic.

lippy stuff

when we lived in the second house, natalie got a tube of blistex.  it was white and made my lips tingle.  my continuous need for lippy stuff began when i was 15 with lip medex.  i don't remember why i started, but since that first little jar 23 years ago, i have compulsively used some sort of lip balm.  sometimes it seems as if  i can't function without it.  I'm a junkie.  If my lips are dry,  i can't sleep.  I'm not proud.  I've used Vaseline straight out of the jar.  I have at least considered using olive oil.

 Dammit.  Now I need to apply some.  Check the right front pocket and find a full tube of cherry chapstick.  life is good.

songs that annoy the phuq out of me

in no particular order:

"Do You Know the Way to San Jose?"-Dionne Warwick
"Independence Day"-Martina McBride

i blame my 8th grade english teacher, ms. arnold, who smoked her brains in the teachers' lounge with mr. bergamini.  the ability to recite the prepositions, in alphabetical order, to the tune of the Big Mac song is a curse.  prepositions at the end of sentences make me twitchy, especially in a song.

i need a hobby.
Clarification: I like these songs, but am unable to truly love them because of the whole preposition thing.

For those of you keeping score at home:

Sophie has arranged my comforter to her liking on the bed.  It takes her a bit to be satisfied.  There is a lot of circling and digging, as well as a deep sigh.  Willis is frog-legged out, gnawing on a tennis ball.  He's happier than a pig in shit.  Earlier the three of us played fetch outside.  Willis frequently slides off of the deck going after a ball.  I think it's hysterical, so I try to make it happen as often as possible.  Everybody wins.  Willis has now stopped gnawing and has pushed the ball to me with his nose in the hopes that I will play.  I might have, if he hadn't just barked at me impatiently.  I don't like to be yelled at by my dogs.  :)  He's back to gnawing now.See? yelling will not get you what you want.

 Aaaaaand, I'm spent.

in case you missed it...

i think the fact that i made a typo in my out of office message (06Junr2011, omfg, right?) speaks to the wee bit of stress i was dealing with last week. onward and upward, kids!

High school graduate, William Morris Povlsen

Published with Blogger-droid v1.7.0

Buckie's reason for the season

It's graduation season, and Mr. William Morris Povlsen has made his family very proud.  High school graduate.  That's my nephew.  :)
Not only were the boys and I fortunate enough to be able to attend William's graduation on Friday, June 3rd, but we also:
  • spent quality time with my sister and family
  • visited with G&GT, G&GM, GGL, GUB
  • visited with Miss Brooke
  • saw Kung Fu Panda 2 (so cute)
  • bought a new suitcase (the old one had a rough flight down and needed replacing; the new one is pink with flowers, obviously so much more awesome)
  • contributed $77 to the City of Williams, CA (I would have ticketed a strange car blocking a vacant for sale house's driveway at 4:30 am on a Wednesday, too)
  • rented a Dodge Charger (muy fabluoso)
  • swam in CA (Marco...)
  • watched sundry E! programs
  • chillaxed knowing that love was all around us
  • learned that a triple bloody mary makes landing much less scary (who knew?)

All in all, a most excellent mini-vacation.
2 weeks from tomorrow we're off to GWL for 3 days, 2 nights of indoor waterpark merriment!  The boys and I are definitely ready for summer.

 love love
