Frozen Solid.

I know, I know…I’m being a wuss. But really….it was -17 degrees when I left home this morning. Without the windchill. IN MINNEAPOLIS.


The only silver lining is that in about 50 hours, I’ll be on a plane to Vegas, where it is about 70 degrees warmer than it is here. AWESOME. I’m totally just going to walk around nude. Just kidding. But really, I will be wearing flip flops and NO EFFING JACKET.

And I’ll be shopping AND drinking at the same time. (I know, Martini, you’re all – but I do that all the time!) I’m talking LEGALLY. Nickel slots, call girls…I cannot wait.

Anyway…I have to say, I’m really going to miss the husband. I know it’s a girls weekend, but it will be weird being away from him for that long. I’ve only done it a couple times before, but I’ll be missing him dearly. Although, I’m sure he could do without all the shopping and hours of slot machine play. I know he’ll be keeping the boys (Milo & Boo) warm and happy – and probably having fun doing all the things I usually quietly disapprove of. :)

So, that’s where it stands. I still have to pack, do laundry, grocery shop with the husband, and of course…work before I leave. But, I’ve finally made a list. So at least I sort of have my shit together. I barely slept last night worrying about all the things I have to do before I leave. I need to knock that off.

Opinions, please.

Should I redesign?

I’m considering trying to make my own theme from scratch. I have a graphic design degree for christ’s sake. I should maybe consider using it.


Pssst…pass it on…

If any of you are as big of a fan of Martini as I am (the woman, not the drink) (…) (well, maybe the drink too), you should know she’s moved.

Don’t say I never did anything for ya. :)

ugh, gross.

You know what really grosses me out? When people fill soda and other non-water bottles full of water, and then drink out of said bottles. Not only is it like, bacteria central, but – eww! Your Diet RC Cola was just in there. Now you’re going to drink water out of it? WTF?

I mention this because I sat across from a semi-crazy lady on the train this morning. She looked kind of like a bag lady, but a bag lady with money and a job. So, she’s sitting there, and then she pulls out what appears to be a Simply Orange individual bottle of OJ, but then…there’s no OJ in it, just water.

My stomach turns.

Then she starts drinking out of it, all the while dribbling little drops of water down her chin.

My stomach turns again.

I had nothing else to look at – no other interesting tidbit in the train to look at to divert my attention.

Then I think she saw me dry heaving. I was able to look away.

Am I the only one that is disgusted by this? Buy a damn water bottle. They’re like, $7. And you can put them in the dishwasher. Jesus Christ.

Dear Slim Fast Bar…

Category not so much

You made me a promise. A promise of controlling my hunger for 4 hours. Yet here I am, 2.5 hours after consuming you, and I am EFFING STARVING. What gives? I saved you from a dusty shelf at Rainbow Foods, and yet…you betray me.

Well, Slim Fast Bar, try this on for size; your partner in crime – Slim Fast Shake – treats me WAY better than you do.

So here’s the plan – either you start doing your damn job, or you’re getting tossed in the trash. (Which won’t be easy since you were so damned expensive.) I’ll do it. Don’t tempt me.
