This One’s For Kerry


I listened to your voice mail and laughed hysterically for, like, 10 minutes.

Love you, Ker!!!!


Kansas City….

So I’m tentatively planning to be in Kansas City on August 18 & 19. I was *hoping* that maybe all of you KC (and surrounding area) bloggers might like to get together for a lil’ soiree at some point during my trip. Maybe an early afternoon thing on the 19th?

If you’re in, post a comment…

Holy Busy

I have been so busy for the past four days that I didn’t have any sort of couch potato time in which I could catch up on The Closer or Big Brother or, like, the nine million episodes of Property Ladder and Moving Up (thanks, TLC, I’m obsessed) that are currently overloading my DVR.

I did, however, have time to discover this amazing Bucket o’ Mojito thing at World Market. Mmmm… tasty.

Moving on…

Ok, so I’m putting all of the unpleasantness from the week behind me. And now it’s time for some fun. Here’s what’s on tap for the weekend:

  1. Bunco tonight with my DG alumni sisters. Woot!
  2. Pug Meetup tomorrow. Hopefully Lola’s boyfriend will show up.
  3. Dancing tomorrow night with Jenelle and a group of ladies from another department at work. It’s been awhile since I did that.
  4. Brunch at the art museum with Jill on Sunday. And probably some TJ Maxx or Target time, cause that’s how we roll.

Have a fabulous weekend everyone!!

And thanks for your words of encouragement. 🙂 Y’all rock.

Things I Don’t Get #302

People who still wear fanny packs.


So. The Crush/The Ass and I are officially over. Finito. No mas.

It ended rather anticlimactically (is that a word) – he called me Sunday night and apologized profusely. Gave weird (like REALLY weird- implausible weird) reasons why he was unable to call me on Saturday (when he STOOD ME UP!). Asked me to call him from Ohio (btw, I’m in Ohio). I called. Left a message. Haven’t heard back. So today, in a display of pure wussiness, I sent him an email.

Yeah, yeah, I know. An email. But here’s the thing, y’all – it’s sort of been talked to death between him and I before. We’ve had some weird issues that most couples (if we ever were actually considered such a thing!) don’t experience in the first three months of dating. And so with me being the overtalker/oversharer, etc. that I am, I’ve tried to be really open and talk about issues as they arose. It obviously hasn’t done much good. So I didn’t really feel like having another exhausting conversation about the whole thing. So I carefully composed an email that I thought was fair, well thought out and essentially said that if things remained the status quo, I didn’t think it was a good situation. Though I did offer him the opportunity to suggest how we might make it right.

How did he respond?

Four sentences:

You make a good point. This probably won’t work. This type of thing happens too often regardless of blame: earrings, the talk on Thursday, the Saturday thing, and your periodic angry text messages, emails, and voicemails. Take care.

Wow. Thank you. Really. For exemplifying EXACTLY why this was over. Way to take ZERO responsibility for anything. Like standing me up, disappearing for days at a time, lying and in general being someone completely untrustworthy and kind of a pompous, immature, inexperienced ass. Hence the name (The Ass). And if any angry message of any sort was ever left, it was because of the behavior described above. And I wouldn’t call them angry. More like sarcastic and biting.

So there you have it. It’s done.

And truthfully, I feel like a HUGE weight has been lifted off my shoulders. So if anyone is available, I’m free for cocktails tonight to celebrate.

I Want Charles in Charge of Me

So there’s a new show on VH1 called Scott Baio is 45… and Single. And I find it hilarious for a multitude of reasons.

First, it’s a reality show about Scott Baio. SCOTT FREAKIN’ BAIO!

Second, Scott is 45 and single and afraid of commitment and is a compulsive cheater. And he’s on TV admitting this.

Third, Jason Hervey is one of his best friends. You may remember Jason from The Wonder Years where he played Kevin’s jerky older brother, Wayne. We also share the same birthday, along with Candace Cameron of Full House fame.

Fourth, one of Scott’s assignments from a life coach he has hired to help him straighten himself out is to reconcile with old girlfriends to find out what went wrong and to apologize to them for any wrongdoing. This includes girlfriends like Julie McCullough, best known as Mike Seaver’s girlfriend, Julie Costello, on Growing Pains. She was the girlfriend who was also Chrissy’s nanny and the Seavers took her on a cruise.

I have no idea how I know/remember all of these completely useless facts. I can’t remember the plot of a movie that I saw two months ago, yet I can recall an entire Growing Pains story line (and the theme song in its entirety).

Nonetheless, Scott Baio is 45… and Single is my new guilty pleasure of the summer. At least until The Hills returns.
