A 20 question test (presumably made up by a 20 year old) has confirmed it for me. Apparently, I’m a big, fat whore:
Raunchy Sexy You are full on sexy! If you were a dinosaur, you’d be a sexasaurus. Men can find it hard to compete with your one-track raunchiness. Just remember, you don’t need to be a rip-roaring sex goddess 24/7 to be a turn-on. Sometimes, there’s nothing sexier than a woman who is comfortable just being herself.

Probably important to note that I watch several television shows a week. It’s 12:37 pm and I’m still in my pajama bottoms, a tee, and my slippers with my hair pulled up in a ponytail and my black dorky glasses on. Yep. I think this is ENTIRELY ACCURATE.
FULL SLIDESHOW HERE.
(Please ignore the fact that I was a total dope and left the date stamp on with the date completely wrong, obviously.)
I love Halloween, and I LOOOOOOOOOOOVE wearing costumes. I’m like a little kid when it comes to holidays: I get super excited and count the seconds in anticipation. This past Saturday was my first big party at the house, and it was good times.
Those of you who know me, know I’m a total Evite nazi. I will HOUND YOU until you answer, bitches! I gots to plan and all. Buy enough for everyone, etc. And about 10-15 people who said they were coming didn’t show up, so I had TONS of stuff left over. But no matter, because the 25ish people who were there were a hella lot of fun with some pretty awesome costumes.
Of course, being the geeks that we are, we also had karaoke. And just about everyone got up to sing – including my friend of 30 years, Kendra. I never thought I would see the day, but dangit, she worked it:
That video makes me happy. Especially since I can use it to embarass her. Like I’m doing right now. lol
But on a serious note, I am one lucky gal. I mean, I work out of my home, I’m single, I’m alone a lot…but I can always count on my many friends to come and hang out with me and have a good time. These folks never let me down and we ALWAYS have fun. I’m very, very lucky to have such wonderful people in my life. Y’all know who you are, and I love ya.
I got this email from my pal today:
Hi, all you animal lovers. This is pretty simple. Please tell ten friends to tell ten today!
The Animal Rescue Site is having trouble getting enough people to click on it daily to meet their quota of getting free food donated every day to abused and neglected animals. It takes less than a minute to go to their site and click on the purple box “fund food for animals” for free. This doesn’t cost you a thing.
Their corporate sponsors/advertisers use the number of daily visits to donate food to abandoned/neglected animals in exchange for advertising.
Here’s the web site! Pass it along to people you know: www.theanimalrescuesite.com.
Yeah, ok. 20 minus 4.6 does NOT equal 13.4! This is why I should NEVER, EVER do math without a calculator. It’s 15.4, ding-dong.
Holy crap. I lost 4.6 lbs this week. Unbelievable considering the below mentioned Halloween candy debacle! But you know if I don’t haul ass this week, it’ll come back to get me next week.
Plus, that means only 13.4 more to make good on my pre-op loss. Nice. And by the way, I’m getting more and more freaked out about it.
But I’ll focus on the 4.6 lb loss. And hiding the Halloween candy.
Last night I joined Cynthia, Brian, and some of Brian’s co-workers at the pub down the street from me for “Trivia Night.” I had never been to one before, but being the major geek that I am, I was super-excited about it. I used to be the Queen of useless knowledge, and I haven’t tapped into that in a while, so I was curious to see how much trivia was still stuck in my head.
We dubbed ourselves “Trick or Trivia,” which we all thought was cute but in hindsight: lame. Anyhow, we pulled through on some questions. I got “What novel by Nathaniel Hawthorne wrote about Hester Prynne?” (Scarlett Letter) And I also got “What 1991 Barbara Streisand movie was produced by her and also starred her?” (Prince of Tides). So I still had a little in there. Yay brain!
Brian’s coworker Chris go this one: “What whale based in Antartica is the same name as the Russian word for white?” BALUGA. We were duly impressed by his correct answer and kept shouting that all evening. It was a good, geeky time.
In other news: I have broken into the Halloween candy and confirmed that I have ZERO will power. I bought a few bags about a week ago thinking that I should get the good stuff now before it runs out. Yeah, get the good stuff, Fatty McFatress! Get the good stuff so you can EAT HALF THE BAG BEFORE HALLOWEEN!!!!
Dr. Hess cannot carve me up like a turkey soon enough.
A few days ago, it was Bob’s birthday. It took everything I had to not send him a card or call him. It KILLED me to not acknowledge it. I can’t. The last interaction we had was absolutely humiliating, and I just cannot give him the very little piece of my pride that’s left.
And I want to know what the HELL is wrong with me?? WHY do I still miss him and love him (or love the good parts of him)? WHY can I not get over this? Don’t worry, people, I’m not going there again. It will just be the same ridiculous cycle of me hoping for the best and getting the worst. And despite my past history, I do have some pride.
So much time wasted fighting and debating the age difference. Ridiculous. All that time is gone now. And well, everything’s gone now.
I just want to know what the hell is wrong with me that I can’t get past this and why I still think about him every day? It hurts and it sucks.
The gay boyfriends found this one, and I will love them forever for finding it. Look at how fucking fabulous she is!!! Uh, HELLO…she’s just a few months shy of being 70! SEVENTY YEARS OLD! JeSUS, I don’t look that good at 35.
She’s totally camp and loving it. I want to be Dame Shirley Bassey. I admit it.
Ok, I hated the Phantom of the Opera movie and found Emmy Rossum to be incredibly annoying. For some reason when I see her in magazines and gossip blogs (because I’m always devoting my extra-curricular reading time to world issues and important blogs like Go Fug Yourself), she makes my skin crawl a little. It’s completely irrational, I know. And that’s why it pains me to show you this:
First of all, I would kill for that hair…and she looks incredibly gorgeous in this. But of course, they remind you of how pretty she is by making the whole video just close-up shots of her. And I’m right back at being annoyed.
Anyhow, I LOVE this song. And yes, the comments are right – this is totally an Imogen Heap rip-off. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if she wrote it. But man, I love it. And it pains me to say that because memories of her warbling in Phantom of the Opera keep popping up in my head, but I do. It’s purdy and etheral and of course, all a cappella.
Which of course means that every bad a cappella group in the world will be covering it. And then I can go back to being annoyed by her. And bad a cappella.
Today, I found out that our review of Cocktail Napkin came out on RARB. Overall, I think it’s a pretty kick-ass review! You can read it here:
