~In the words of the Grammar Snob.....I tend to curse and make little things seem like BIG FREAKING THINGS and overreact and think the world revolves around me. BUT! I can be sweet and charming sometimes. You should focus on those times.~

Introducing......Manic Monday!

I heart the 80's! So in honor of that I'll be doing "Manic Monday" posts! Just random stuff that I love about the 80s. Actually, I might even post stuff I didn't like. I don't know but it will be about the 80s!

So to grace the 1st MM post I present to you PAT BENATAR!!!!!!!!!

She is a certified rock'n'roll superstar. A four-time Grammy winner with six platinum and four gold albums as well as such hit singles as "I Need A Lover," "Heartbreaker," "Fire and Ice," "Treat Me Right," "Hit Me With Your Best Shot," "Hell Is For Children," "Shadows of the Night," and "Love Is A Battlefield."

She was born in Brooklyn, New York to a Polish/Irishfamily. She studied voice and opera, following in the footsteps of her mother while growing up in Lindenhurst, New York, on Long Island.

Graduated in 1971 out of Lindenhurst High School, and soon thereafter married her high school sweetheart, Dennis T. Benatar, acquiring the surname with which she became famous. Dennis also has a sister named Pat Benatar.

After capturing industry ears with her showcases at New York's Catch A Rising Star, Benatar signed to Chrysalis Records and released the million selling "In The Heat of
the Night" in 1979.

Clear Pepsi and Ugly Kid Joe

1. Is your second toe longer than your first?
No it isn't and I'm glad. I think that's weird. No offense to those who have a longer 2nd toe, just don't expect me to tell you you have cute feet.

Google Steers My Destiny

I am a total believer in the idea that each person steers their own destiny. I CHOOSE to be where I am and do what I do. I CHOOSE to be happy or sad, etc. So today I googled "steer my destiny" and out of "about 87,800" results the first one was a rather interesting blog. click here I don't know yet if it will make it into my "daily reading" file in my favorites list, but it'd definitely worth a read. Make sure to click "home" so you can read other entries. There were more blogs listed as well. Seems a lot of people are steering their own destinies or at least want to.click here
I don't know if this one is a blog, but it's interesting. click here

Of course quite a few astrology sites popped up as well. I'm not entirely convinced that by studying astrology that you're actually steering your own destiny, but allowing outside influences steer you instead. There's arguments to be made on both sides. But that's the reason I never open fortune cookies. I don't want to be influenced by something/someone else.
click here
Sadly the reason this one caught my eye was because of the pretty scrolly font they used....oh the things I allow to influence ME! click here

And this article is fascinating to me click here.

I had no idea there was such a thing as google books existed until now! Kind a cool! I'm gonna have to look into them more. Yet another reason I LOVE googling. And no I'm not talking dirty here! Get your minds out of the gutter!

William Tell Overture for Moms

My Theme Song!

Friday, September 21, 2007

I'm 28!

My Birthday was Tuesday. No one in my family remembered it except my grandparents who woke me up at 7am to sing to me over the phone. I went out w/ some friends last night to celebrate and they gave me a present. It was a basket of froo-froo stuff and I was so touched by their thoughtfulness! I'm still disapointed though. My mom had my kids make cards for their dad's b-day but not mine. Oh well, get over it!

The Gym

Well after having a membership to the Y for MONTHS I finally got my butt down to the gym. I did and hour yesterday and today. I get free childcare while I work out so Ethan and Georgia get to play while I sweat. They gym is decent, not big but lots of good machines. I don't plan on weighing myself for a whole month since I know I'll be gaining muscle weight. I would LOVE to lose a few more inches by my b-day party next week. I've GOT to start eating better. It's so hard for me to eat in the morning. Of course I have breakfast drinks I can drink, but I've found that I have to mix them w/ milk or their way too thick so it makes them harder to just grab and go. I've also fallen off the french fry bandwagon, but I'm back on. NO MORE! And I say this right before I go eat lunch w/ my grandparents! LOL I've got to make sure and eat more meals too. I'm curbing the fast food to only once a week. That's not only for fitness but for the budget as well.

I'm thinking of buying these......


and these.....


and sometimes I wish I was an octopus and could wear 4 pairs of shoes at the same time......


A Haiku

My house is a mess
Don’t even know where to start
Driving me bonkers

I procrastinate
Sit with a broom in my lap
My house is a mess

*I did not say it would a brilliant haiku.........but a haiku none the less........and YES I know traditionally haikus are written about seasons. But I am neither a poet OR traditional.
