Sucks to be You

Ah, Merck is feeling the pain today boy. Vioxx is officially no more. Pfizer is celebrating today though because they sell Celebrex, the competition. Vioxx was a huge money maker for those cats and now they are going to hurt. Perhaps Pfizer will scoop them up in their little arms, give them a baba, tuck them in their tiny cribs and while they are snoring away buy the company & lay off hundreds of people. As usual.

Today I got my hair done & why god, is a good shampoo girl better then an orgasm? Shit I love those head massages! I was in my glory because I had my highlights done & so I am entitled to TWO glorious shampoos. Love it. I remember the best massage I had was on my honeymoon & I got a massage and she rubbed my head for like 10 minutes. It was better then the back massage. I love you little St. Lucia woman!!!! I still think about you often. I wish you well.

You're Hired!

Well, E did not get fired last week, (over 300 of his fellow salesmen were not so lucky) but he did get the new job! He is very excited and he cannot wait to start. He will have to go to CA for training for a week but I a pro at being alone with the babies by now. So thanks for the well wishes everyone.
Now for me, I may apply for a job at pottery barn. I am not sure if I will ever come home with a paycheck though, I may just abused the company discount. That is why I cannot work at Barnes & Noble. Or the Gap. Or Annie Sez. Or Lord & Taylor.

I am cranky today, I have my period and I hate it. I am getting hair touched up tomorrow though and that always makes a girl feel better. While I am there I need to check out some new shampoos. I love nice, long lasting smelly shampoo. Anyone have one they love?

We had a nice weekend around these parts. Saturday my sister in law came over to babysat so we could go out to dinner for our anniversary. We went to a great restaurant in Philadelphia that is now my new favorite restaurant, even though they didn't know how to make a flirtini. I had the best lobster bisque and the best filet mignon I have ever had. It was delicious and I can't wait to go back there. I also shopped the fall sale at banana republic while we were waiting for our reservation time. They had some good stuff.
Philadelphia is a strange city, it is hard for me to even considerate a city because I am a NYC girl. Philly is just not the same. I remember when I went to Columbus Ohio for my college orientation, the taxi driver said something about the city and I was like "this is not a city." Not that the great people of Ohio were very welcoming to a NJ girl, but that is another story for another day.

Yesterday my sister & brother & other sister came over as well as my step mother and her mother. We had a nice day & I got to show them around the new house. They are welcome any time especially considering the babies slept until 7am, late around this house!

Why is Mark McGrath a host of Extra? WTF is that?

Why is the "Insider" rocking my world at 7:30 pm M-F? Love it.

Why is my friend so cheap she won't even call me on the phone, she just emails me, but call all my other "local" friends?

Why is Isaac Mizrahi taking it up a notch for Target? He has some nice clothes over there at Target.

Why did Britney Spears get married when everyone in the ENTIRE world know it won't last 6 months? Why can't that dirt bag she married,shave? Why is she so trashy?

Why is it that old ladies usually resemble men?

Happy anniversary to me!

Today is our 4th wedding anniversary. Four years ago today I was preparing to marry the sweetest guy in the planet and I have never looked back. Not even one regret, ever.
I was thinking about all the reasons I loved him today and there are just too many, he is a part of me, and I of him. I want to hold his hand forever, the hands that show his character and his strength. I wish I could be carried by these hands every day but instead, he carries me on his shoulders. I want to wake up to his green eyes forever, the eyes that you can see all the love he has to give and the sincerity of everything he says to me.
I want to always be surrounded by his protective arms and never have to be scared again.
When I am sad he is not only sad for me, he is sad with me, making me realize no matter how alone I feel he will always be right there standing next to me. When I felt like I couldn't bare to face another day of this cruel, heartless world he reminded me of how much he and the babies need me and that it will get better. Because it has to.
When I am happy he is the one who celebrates with me, again always by my side.
I never knew how lucky I would be, to live my life with him, to share my life with him.
Happy Anniversary E, I love you forever.

Where the hell is everybody? All the blogs seem to be dead the past week.

E's interview went really well he said. Thanks for all the positive energy. Now we have to wait for tomorrow he could get fired and hired all in one day. That is what we hope for! We need the 10 weeks severance so as not to become homeless.
I would not like to be selling mashed potatoes with the cat in the tuxedo.

Ummm, What is wrong with Gary Shandling's face? Did he have work on it, or worse, did he have nothing done? Wow, that was scary.
I was happy that Cynthia Nixon & SJP won, I love SJP and I think she is great & beautiful. She always looks like she stepped out of a Barbie box. Love, love love her.
Who is Elaine Stritch? Anyway she was hysterical.
One of my favorite shows is Arrested Development, it is genius and I am SO happy they won some awards. They were on the verge of being cancelled there for awhile. If you have never seen the show, you should watch.
Happy to see Zack Braff presenting.
Marishka from Law & Order is gorgeous! Remember her from ER?
Happy for Michael Imperoli and Drea DeMateo for Sopranos because they deserved it and I am in mad love with the show. I once met Michael and had my picture taken with him but my friend cut off our heads. This is the same friend that just got married. I hate her. I will post the picture some day.
When I learn how.
Don't hold your breath.

Babs S. was wearing some sort of curtains. Why, James Brolin, why?

Do me a Flavor?

Can everyone send good vibes and say little prayers for us? E has a interview for a job he really wants tomorrow and his layoffs at work take place on Wednesday. Yikes. It also happens to be our anniversary that day, great timing!
The best case scenario is that he has a great interview tomorrow, gets fired at his job on Wednesday, collects severance, and gets hired at new job on Thursday! Yay.
Worst case scenario includes us becoming homeless and therefore will have to stop blogging. Boooo Hiiiissss.

On a side note, I watched Maid in Manhattan yesterday morning and I really cannot believe how bad an actress Jennifer Lopez is. It was barely watchable and the entire story line was obvious just from the previews. But I did watch it and I was pissed at myself afterwards. Bad Tuesday girl.

I still have many friends that I had in high school. Some of my best friends I have known since 6th grade actually. I have also always gotten along better with boys then girls. I have always had a ton of boy friends. Girls just can be so hard on each other, gossipy and jealous. I dealt much better with boys.

I don't have any new friends in this town. We met our neighbors and they all seem very nice but not necessarily types we would be close friends with, more like acquaintances. Plus they all are older then us, we seem to be the youngest people on the block. I am sure I will meet new people if I start working part time. I really don't want a run of the mill part time retail job though. Yuk. Those are filled with young high schoolers. I surely have nothing in common with them, except maybe drinking until I pass out. Just kidding.
Other then work how do people meet other people? I would go to the gym if I could afford to join right now.
Hmm, this could be my 3/4 through the new year resolution.

Who wants to pay me for doing stuff for you from my house??? Any takers?

What kind of man are you?

I have noticed a lot more men staring at my chest lately. I don't know why, I have been the same size for my entire adult life, which is not exceptionally big or small. I am not wearing cleavage revealing clothing. I do not write LOOK on my T shirts either. So why all the looks? I decided that it is because most men are boob men. Of course there are butt men, stomach men, leg men* and the ever scary, foot men out there but most of them are all in it for the boobs.

Is it cleavage or the hope of seeing the outline of a nipple or is it the entire breast itself that men radar into like drug hounds? Why don't women find men's penises that alluring? the reason is woman have beautiful bodies and men don't. Women are soft and curvy, and men's are more utilitarian. Don't get me wrong I love men, but really, nothing really great to look at.

* In my experience all leg men are over the age of 63 and also love medicare and anything that comes with a senior drink.

Bring me a Banana Cognac, Bitch!

Yesterday I took the babies back to my home town to go to the local park & spend the day with my sister and nephew. We had a nice time and it wasn't crowded at all, which is a first. I have noted though that being a stay at home mother means a ton of days at the local malls and parks. I mean what else can you do with them? My kids aren't old enough for crafts or painting and I don't want to stick them in front of the TV all the time. If it is raining (like today & tomorrow) then what do you do all day?

I need to get a job, sigh. I need to bring in an income for this family now that we own a house. I just don't know what to do though. I need suggestions and help.

My babies now officially say "mommy". It is the best feeling in the world. I could listen to it all day long, instead though I listen to the whirling of tires as they ride their little trucks around and around the house. Whose idea was it to have hard wood floors again? Oh yeah, mine. Note to self: don't complain about floors to husband, may cause big purple vein in his neck to pulse.

Has anyone seen this new season of starting over? It is some funny shit. There is a lady in there who, complete with jheri curl, sat on the couch in spandex, a fanny pack, listening to a walkman ate cotton candy out of a pouch using a fork! I completely died! Classic. She also told her roomate that she is premenapausal and brought her own fan & sleeps butt naked. The look on her roomates face was priceless.

Tips, please

I was in this ice cream place last week and I bought two small cups of ice cream a vanilla and a coffee lovers. The bill was $7 and change. I almost died. When the babies and I were leaving someone else came in & bought a bunch of stuff to go, when she left the workers yelled that they got a tip & broke into a song. Some song about scooping ice cream all day. I had to get out of there when that shit went down.
When I was driving home I was thinking about how I didn't see a tip jar there. Then I was thinking how far is this tip thing going? I am a good tipper and never things twice about tipping my hairstylist, manicurists, valet guys, shampooer etc. But where does it end? Should I tip people just for doing their job? Should I tip my grocery bagger or my mail man every day?

I think I should get tips from the babies. I feed & clean up after them all day. I should get some tips based on my performance. I should get at least $2 for each dirty diaper I change. I mean, the poop sometimes, man, is unreal. I sometimes do 4-5 a day. Of just poop. That is for a whole other post though.

Questions, Answered

Having twins is hard, but it is the only thing I know. What would have been harder is if I had 1 child first then twins. The only thing that was hard at first was sleep deprivation. I couldn't function.
Now I have new hurtles like hitting, two different personalities to please and now 2 different appetites.
I would never change it for the world and they truly were a miracle.

No bush, bush is bad.

When I am sad I listen to Cat Stevens, Enya, Sade and Josh Radin. Or I just listen to myself cry in the dark.

Friday, September 10, 2004


I will be honest with you, today I got nothing for you. Nada. Zero.

Sooooooo I will answer any questions you guys have for me about me or this here blog. Or you can suggest a topic you would like to hear my thoughts about. And you know I have thoughts on everything.
You can either leave your question as a comment or email it to me.

Dear Syrup

My Dearest Syrup, how I love you so. Your oozy caramel colored self glistening on my morning waffles*, and if I am lucky yummy pancakes on the weekend. I love you, but not too much of you, on my lightly toasted waffles and turkey sausage links. I dream of you in the early morn and wait for the time when we can be together.
I love you especially, when you come out of a African American lady because that is when you taste the best.

I do not love you though, when you get on my hands or counter tops. I clean you right up. I don't like you to linger.

Thank you dear syrup for "making my mornings brighter girl, for making the sun shine brighter girl"......Oops that was Davey Jones typing.

Breakfast of Champions

E has a co worker that loves salmon and she eats it, minimally, twice a day. She almost always eats it for breakfast. My comment to that was : gross.
Today I ate swordfish for breakfast. E brought it home from a dinner he gave last night and I consumed it around 10:30 this morning*.
Is that gross?
I guess it is.
I used to love cold pizza for breakfast (who doesn't) but I am not too fond of that now. I will always eat pasta for breakfast though. Keep in mind I would never prepare it for myself for breakfast, I would only eat such things if they were leftover.
Preparing it would be ridiculous.
*Ok fine you caught me, I had a brownie first. It was a small one homemade from some nice lady across the street to welcome us. It was fudgy and walnuty goodness in a tiny square.
Hey, stop judging me, you need an appetizer before you eat swordfish. Everyone knows that. Duh.

Today is a Good Day

It is only 10:00am and I know today is going to be a good day. Why you ask?
Because the garbage men picked up all my trash without me having to bribe them with beer.
Score one for Tuesday.

Sweet Revenge

If there is such a thing as karma (and I believe there is) someone is getting t o t a l l y soaked and blown away on their honeymoon right now.
Gooooooooooo Frank*!

Ok now veer off & don't hit poor Florida.

*Francis and I are friends, therefore I call him Frank.

September Already?

Really is is September already? Wow time goes so fast when you have kids. I am excited for fall though, even though it is a melancholy season for me. I get sad & depressed sometimes when I feel the crisp air chill my entire body and the air just has a sense of sadness to it. It is beautiful here with the leaves changing and the skyline peppered with vibrate colors, it just makes me sad sometimes.

I have these new panties that I am in love with. They are little boy shorts from Old Navy and they are so airy and light I could wear them all day. I wanted to post a picture of them, but I haven't figured that out yet.
Don't worry I will not wear them all day every day, but I will go there today & see if I can buy more.

Our first mortgage payment is due today. Blech. Already? Such a huge payment too.
Hey McGreevey, can you get your hand out of various men's pants long enough to do something about my property taxes? I mean $6500 is a little ridiculous for .27 of an acre. Plus that is cheap for NJ! You soul-less fucks.
