In excess

I just received an invitation to a bridal shower today.  My sister-in-law has a brother (B).  He is getting married to S.  The shower is for S.

The shower is being hosted at a banquet hall.  There is a small enclosure that is titled "Hostesses" and it proceeds to list 26 names.  26 names…  26 names…  Did I say 26 names?  To say I'm stunned is an understatement.

Here in my car…

Okay, so they aren’t my cars but I’ve been doing a lot of “what if I won the lottery?” day-dreaming and I’ve fixated on cars. This is kind of funny (not so much funny ha-ha as funny weird) because I’ve always driven fairly compact cars that frankly, aren’t much to look at. And I’ve never really wanted anything else. But…upon considering that we might actually win the $30 million, I decided to indulge myself. Above are my picks. You’ll note I’m still being partially responsible as I’ve chosen cars that will suit just me and also some models that I can actually cart the kidlets around in. So of course, if we win, I’ll have to buy 2 cars for myself. One to boot around in and one for family transportation.

Let’s Talk About Sex, Baby

Early on in my blogging, I discovered "adult" blogs. I would blog hop (my term that describes the act of visiting a blog, reading comments, jumping to the blog of someone who had commented and from their blog jumping to someone else's) for a few minutes and I eventually stumbled across NY Hotties. For those of you who haven't had the pleasure, NY Hotties is a New York Escort's blog. She's smart, she's witty and every now and then, she throws a smutty post up. Be warned if you search out this blog on your lunch hour at work – the odd picture that is most definitely Not Suitable For Work (NSFW) is up there.

10 Things I Learned from My Root Canal

1. It's best if you walk into your dentist's office, thinking he's going to tell you to come back after the infection clears up. That way, when he tells you he's going to go ahead and perform the root canal, you don't have time to freak out.

2. I love nitrous oxide.

I have just discovered that I probably need a root canal.

I discovered this because I suddenly developed a toothache that is the size of Mt. Everest.

I found an emergency dental clinic today (because these things only happen on Sunday when all the regular offices are closed) and got the diagnosis.

I’m currently waiting for both antibiotics and pain killers to kick in and can I just say, MY MOUTH HURTS LIKE HELL.

Easter and Passover

This is one of those years where Easter and Passover cross-over.  Not a big deal to anyone except interfaith families, such as ours.  And even to us, the fact that both holidays are happening simultaneously isn't a big deal.  It's almost better this way.  We may not have bread but at least we have chocolate!

Passover is a very confusing time for me.  I naturally question most things to begin with.  Couple that temperament with a holiday that deems "thou shalt not eat leavened products for 7 days" and you get a crapload of questions.

Wax On, Wax Off (guys, you might want to skip this one)

After a few years of do-it-yourself bikini line hair removal, I decided a trip to the salon for a bikini wax was in order. I think it was part of my "let's get some excitement in my life" plan.

I've been waxed before. It's usually not a big deal at all. In fact, I used to go to an esthetician 2 doors down from my office, on my lunch hour. Wax on, wax off, hair gone, go get a bite to eat. I figured I knew what I was in for when I booked my appointment.

I arrived at the salon. I met my waxer/esthetician and we went to the waxing room (or whatever it's called). She gave me a moment to get out of my pants and came back.
"How far over do you want to go?", she asked?
Hmmmm….how to answer that….. Read the rest of this entry »
