This is what I do… sorta

I’m sure some of my friends and especially MZ wonders what it is exactly that I really DO all day long.
Well, it’s not quite like this but pretty similar. I’d be the blonde (as in the client side of the relationship). Although, admittedly, I may not be this nice ALL of the time.

Palin Point Counter Point

Oh geez… well most of you know my severe “distaste” for Sarah Palin, but I found this on one of the blogs I read and, well I have to hand it to them, lots of fun ideas – if you like that sort of thing.

The drink menu is really creative. Palin-tinis, Alsasa-tinis, Baraccuda-tinis, Lipstick-tinis, Hockeymom-o-politans.

They also made shirts for the mini Palin-ites that say “Pig Tails for Palin.”

Please don’t make one of these, I beg you, for a number of reasons – it’s tacky AND Palin is not running for President…


and in other news…..
Tina Fey ‘leaving Earth’ if Palin wins
Actress has had fun with impersonation on ‘SNL,’ but can’t do four years news services
updated 11:53 a.m. CT, Mon., Oct. 13, 2008

Tina Fey is generating big laughs and big audiences for “Saturday Night Live” with her impersonation of Gov. Sarah Palin, but the actress hopes it doesn’t last.
“We’re gonna take it week by week. If she wins, I’m done,” Fey tells TV Guide in the Oct. 20 issue. “I can’t do that for four years. And by ‘I’m done,’ I mean I’m leaving Earth.”
The “30 Rock” star also said the election season and playing Sen. John McCain’s running mate has been a fun and busy time.
“Election time is always good for (‘SNL,’) and this is a bonkers election,” Fey said. “And that lady is a media star. She is a fascinating person. She’s very likable. She’s fun to play, and the two bits with Amy (Poehler) — that was super fun.”

I just heard confirmation that Sarah Palin WILL infact appear on SNL this Saturday night!!! Go set your Tivo right now.

I busted my ass in Target…

No really – I did – it sucked, and it hurt… it still hurts damn it!
I went to Target to try and find a dress I already have but decided it might be best to get it in another color. They didn’t have it, but I found some other things, so it wasn’t a wasted trip entirely.
So, I was walking from the apparel section to the Halloween section – on the other side of the store – my path led me through the front of the store right where the checkouts are. I was just walking normally with my hand basket and my right foot just completely slid out from under me, twisted all the way up my leg and pulled me down with a thud – right in front of probably 30 people.
So not only was I embarrassed and in pain, I was pretty freakin’ pissed off because in the mix of the 30 people, there were probably 5 Target associates just standin around (NOT checking out the people standing in line) and NOT asking if I was ok or any thing – not one single person (shopper nor employee) even acknowledged that I was on the ground. SO MAD!

Anyway, I picked my self up and my basket and continued on through the rest of my shopping without further incident.

Please don’t forget to watch the final Presidential debate tonight on every channel… If you do watch it, let me know – I’ll give you a gold star for the week!

This past weekend…

This was a pretty calm weekend… I did get some great crafties done at AB’s house along with JC – glitter pumpkins are ALWAYS a hit – they are very fun and festive and don’t involve sharp object – yet another bonus!
Saturday evening we went out for a bit to wish Jen a Happy Birthday.

The big news of the weekend was that the HOGS actually WON! Clearly, the strategy of ignoring them worked out pretty well! Never fear, two more tailgates left and I’m sure some great pictures too! But the Bears AND the Cowboys both lost in nail biter endings – it was a stressful Sunday!

Here’s a little collage of what I did this weekend and some pictures I took, including my new pedicure color. MZ was OK with everything glitter except for the hat on the pig – so I’ll probably take that off. The Gargoyle and The Pig are staples on the front porch! He’s just lucky I didn’t dress The Gargoyle up like a ghost.
We are still trying to find some FABULOUS Halloween costumes for the 2 parties we are attending – feel free to suggest something!!!

The Fleecing of America… @ Sonic

Seriously! $1.19 for a Banana and another $1.19 for uno String Cheese!

I LOVE Sonic, but this is just plain wrong.
Especially since I can get a chocolate banana milk shake for $1.59 and that comes with a WHOLE banana, ice cream made with 2% milk (dairy) and real chocolate (sanity saver and antioxidants)!

Who looks silly now?

thoughts on brown hair???

If for any reason you forgot what I looked like with blonde hair – just read any other square inch of my blog…
Don’t ask, because I don’t know what my natural color is… =)

Probably more than my two cents

Here’s my two cents on the first 4 comments from the previous post:

It is true that EVERYONE misspeaks and makes mistakes – as we all learned at an early age, there is a difference between facts and conceptual thought. As we’ve learned from the post and the comments, Palin and Binden made documented incorrect statements – both were chastised in the eye of the media and most of the American public.

HOWEVER, To change one’s mind and stance on “topic” is not only human nature but actually shows thought process and the ability to CHANGE, grow and learn. This is possible across the board and it’s been clear that this has been a learning opportunity for the past few weeks. We’ve all learned that our economy is beyond a “simple bailout” and that we all must make a conscious effort to make a personal change in our lives.

As for uninformed voters – I think they should be shot… not mortally wounded but, ya know…
Ok, so maybe that’s a bit harsh but I don’t think there is ANY excuse for being an uninformed voter. ASK questions, WATCH TV – and watch all the channels, not just the one that swings your way… listen to NPR, or heaven forbit READ something or everything you can.

You may already have your mind made up, however, don’t vote in one direction because that’s what your parents do or what your husband does or the way your company tells you to!!! But do know what you are voting for.

Here is a mock ballot for the state of Arkansas (note: doesn’t include local and county amendments and elections)
Please search the internet for your mock ballot – BECOME INFORMED, IT’S NOT TOO LATE.

Again, as previously stated: If you disagree with me, that’s fine – that’s your right as an American – hopefully a voting American. DO NOT make some snarky comment about my political views and I will not personally attack yours… and I will if provoked.

If you actually watched the debate…

I’m proud of you.
I’m proud of you.
I hope that you’re as proud as I am proud of you.
I’m proud of you.
I hope that you are proud
And that you’re
Learning how important you are,
How important each person you see can be.
Discovering each one’s specialty
Is the most important learning.
I’m proud of you.
I’m proud of you.
I hope that you’re as proud as I am proud of you.
I’m proud of you.I hope that you are proud of you, too!

– Mr. Rogers
(sorry, I could not find the music video on youtube)

I know we don’t all share the same political views, but all I can hope for is that you gained some educational insight on the way our country “works” and how you are affected by and directly responsible for what you chose on November 4th … atleast for the next 4 years.

So VOTE proudly, if you don’t VOTE, don’t complain!

Also, please know that the current Afghan Commander is General McKiernan NOT General McClellan… (he was fired by President Lincoln). Go back and watch Palin’s “stance on Afghan policy” if you do not know what I’m talking about there…
Moral of that story – Don’t believe everything you hear on TV kiddos!

Dr. & Dr. Reynolds

This weekend, MZ headed to Little Rock for Kirk and Kim’s Wedding. Kirk and MZ went to college together at the U of A and I’ve gotten to know and love Kim and Kirk through tailgating for Razorback games! Their wedding ceremony and reception was held at the Arkansas Arts Center in downtown Little Rock. All of it was absolutely beautiful! One of MZ’s favorite parts was the mini pizza, as he loves all things pizza! Instead of a grooms cake, there was a gelatto bar, which was also super tasty! We all danced the evening away! After the reception we headed down town with Darla and Kevin (also some of MZ’s friends from college). We wanted to watch the rest of the Cubs game, so we went to Gusano’s – unfortunately they lost, so we moved on. I’m not sure the name of the place where we ended up – and yes, I know that’s probably a bad sign. But we had a blast regardless, really, do you need to know where you are as long as you get home safely! I think not!
Congratulations to Dr. Kirk and Dr. Kim!
