I am way late with my wishes, but I have to give props to my friends, the lovebirds:
SHAH & BRIAN: July 22 – ONE YEAR
How much do I love these two kids? I was the Maid O’ Honor at their wedding (i.e. the “Best Bitch”) and I know these two kids are in it for the long haul. There’s lots of love between them, and they’re both such amazing people. So many great things are in store for them!
SUSAN & HABIB: July 23 – TWO YEARS!
These two got married without any fanfare…just professed their love for each other in a quiet little ceremony, and are still going strong two years later. It’s so much fun to be around them, because their love for each other is contagious…and they make you feel like you’re part of their family, and part of their happiness. Plus they are both kick-ass cooks and they feed me anytime I hang with them.
I wish all of my friends many, many more years of happiness together.
I’m a karoake whore, and I love it. You can be too (for free!) if you ask me for an invite. Just email me and I’ll send one your way. Good selection of songs too! Lots of jazz, which you know I love.
Facebook is down for maintenance today. So I’ll pimp out singsnap.com instead:
Ok, first I just want to comment how childish my mind is sometimes. I inevitably always think of something dirty if the wording of something can be even the slightest bit suggestive. I don’t know if it’s because I’m immature or just need a good roll in the hay.
I weighed in yesterday and lost -6.6 lbs! Yeehaw! The scale is going down and I intend to keep it that way. Just thought you might like to know. Yeah.
Even though I HATE the heat, I’m in love with summer right now for this reason: I just got my first gas bill for the month of July in the new house, and it was $9.77. Now that rocks the party, yo!
I fought it for a long time, I swear I did. But now that I’m on there, I’m completely p-whipped by Facebook. I am Facebook’s bitch. Every moment of the day that I’m not doing something important (which is like, 23 hours of each day), I’m on there looking for new notifications, new applications, and to see what my friends are doing RIGHT NOW THIS VERY SECOND.
Some other shit that’s happening:
-Ben is leaving to go to Stanford Law. I’m still in denial, but we had an awesome night of dancing this past Saturday and while I’m sad to see him go, I’m proud of my pal.
-I’m learning guitar. You know what no one tells you about learning guitar? It fucking HURTS!! Seriously, I know all of three chords and I look like an old arthritic grandma when I’m done playing.
-I’m in the process of writing a musical/comedy/cabaret show of all original music. This is a HUGE undertaking and something completely different for me, but I really want to challenge myself. Now that VFP is taking a bit of time off with Ben’s departure, I’m going to use that time wisely and seriously write. I’m excited about this. I haven’t been this excited about music in a long time. It’s in it’s beginning storyline stages, but I’ll keep you posted if anything interesting develops. I just hope I don’t suck.
-Speaking of sucking, I rejoined Weight Watchers last Wednesday for about the 3000th time. I was a gigantic hippo during July eating everything that wasn’t bolted down. That behavior has stopped and I’m now back to eating well and taking care of myself. Of course, if you’re on Facebook, you can get an update about what I’m eating every 5 seconds or so.
So whaddya think about my new blog layout? Pretty spiffy, huh? I know you’d like to tell me, but you can’t because the friggin’ comments aren’t working and I cannot figure out WHY.
Any HTML geniuses want to take a crack at it and let me know why the comments aren’t working? Pretty please? You can EMAIL ME.
If anyone can solve the mystery for me, I’ll send you a little present via email….because it’s driving me NUTS!
You are Strength
Courage, strength, fortitude. Power not arrested in the act of judgement, but passing on to further action, sometimes obstinacy.
This is a card of courage and energy. It represents both the Lion’s hot, roaring energy, and the Maiden’s steadfast will. The innocent Maiden is unafraid, undaunted, and indomitable. In some cards she opens the lion’s mouth, in others she shuts it. Either way, she proves that inner strength is more powerful than raw physical strength. That forces can be controlled and used to score a victory is very close to the message of the Chariot, which might be why, in some decks, it is Justice that is card 8 instead of Strength. With strength you can control not only the situation, but yourself. It is a card about anger and impulse management, about creative answers, leadership and maintaining one’s personal honor. It can also stand for a steadfast friend.
What Tarot Card are You?
Take the Test to Find Out.
Ok, so per usual, I was cleaning out all of the spam in my email this morning and found one that actually made me lol fo’ real:
Now your penis can serve as the lighthouse in the open sea.
That’s all it said. I don’t even really know what it means, but I’m pretty sure that is marketing GENIUS right there, folks! I’m going to run out and get me a penis RIGHT NOW. Not only will it end my romantic dry spell, but with a penis here, my home can be a beacon for wayward ships. And when the lights go out, my penis will help me find the way to the bathroom.
And to think my vagina can only make babies**. I thought THAT was a pretty nifty trick!
**Well you know, not MINE…but you get the point.
