At least it’s not my mom’s basement.

Less than an hour ago, an item was delivered to my house that has ensured that I will not have a social life for the next month.

Yes, ladies and gentleladies, I am now the proud owner of Guitar Hero: World Tour. Not just the game though – the full band kit – for the Wii.

(I just peed a little while typing that.)

OMG – SO effing excited. However, I will be confined to my basement until I have played and mastered all the songs on medium. (I know, I can’t do the hard setting. Piss off.)

In other random news of the week:

  • I now have bangs. I keep bouncing between loving them and being concerned that I look like a 15 year old circa 1992. Next week, I shall be receiving highlights for the first time in a few years. I’m a little worried about this since I’ve been au natural for so long. Oh well. I’m bored. Hair = entertainment.
  • My cat was deathly ill last week. I failed to mention it because I thought he might die. Final prognosis: SEVERE Inflammatory bowel disease. No lymphoma, yet. Probably will develop down the road. Treatment: prednisone and retarded expensive cat food for all of his life.
  • I missed The Office last night because of grocery shopping. So, instead of swooning over Jim and hoping Creed is in this episode, I spent $150 on misc items including a freezer full of lean cuisines and a whole cut up chicken.
  • Tonight is my company’s “Homecoming Gala.” (I work in the education industry, and I think they think calling a company party “homecoming” is HI-LARIOUS. I fail to see the humor or kitchiness of this idea.) I’m dragging the husband with me. I’m sure we’ll both be so excited to set up our new social-life-sucker that we’ll be making an early exit.
  • Tomorrow – Ski & Snowboard Expo, laying carpet in the basement, and heavy duty cleaning in preparation for family-in-law arriving next weekend.

My Etsy Christmas list.

Style Stealer.

Saturday night, I saw the band The Duke Spirit open up for Eagles of Death Metal. Not only am I now I diehard fan of The Duke Spirit, I would also like to steal the lead singer, Leila’s hair. See below.

I don’t know about the bangs so much, but I just love how choppy it is. It even makes me want to start highlighting my hair again. But I’m worried about the $$ involved. I used to have my hair colored exactly like this – when I met the husband. And now, my hair is dye/bleach free and it’s enjoying it.

Maybe I’ll start with the cut and go from there.

This is funny, and weird….and kind of scary.

I was passing a link to my blog to a friend, and I mis-typed the address.

Instead of

I typed (the s and p are switched).

Click that link if you dare.

For those that don’t dare, I’ll fill you in. It goes to “BIBLECOLLEGEONLINE.COM” the “easy to navigate MEGA-SITE of Bible, Christian, church & religious information, sermons & studies.”


Like, seriously, what?! It’s like the bible beaters registered this misspelling to redirect people trying to find my blog to theirs. As if I’m so horrid that they need to save people from my blog and tell them the stories of Jesus.



Turns out – they own – so anything with that in the URL will auto redirect to that site. I’m not the only one – everyone gets that. I guess I’m not THAT special. Oh well. :)

A new beginning.

Today is a new chapter in the history of our lives; as Americans, and as citizens of the world.

There is hope.
