Friday Happy Hour...Woot Woot!!

Brought to you exclusively by Dual Mom on
I'm joining RXBambi for Happy Hour Friday this week. We all know how Dual Mom would sell her first, second and hell even the girl that she likes most times alot better than the boys likes her cocktails. So here it is folks, if you want to play along head on over to her spot and link up!


I have not blogged all week. I have no excuse, well I do but it's kind of lame. I've been feeding my RDJ addiction and so far this week have watched various episodes of Ally McBeal mutliple times (the one where he and Sting sing Every Breath You Take, yeah just fucking kill me now because I'd die happy). You see I pretend that I'm Ally (yes I realize Ally isn't a real person and it's not a mentally sound thing to do to pretend you're not a real person and you shouldn't be pretending that you're an anorexic character in a show where the lead character spontaneously hears music and hallucinates dancing babies...just shutyourpieholeplease). I pretend he's singing to me. I have imaginary conversations with him in my head where he decides I'm the coolest, smartest, sexiest woman in the world and though he really loves his wife he couldn't possibly live the rest of his life without me because life would be bleak and empty and he'd be forced to start using again and he's been clean for so long that it would be a tragedy if he started using again so therefore the only possible thing he could do is leave his wife and and have me and my three children move to LA (or wherever the hell he lives) so that he can be enveloped in my adoration, love and the joyous sound of my laugh. *breathe* WHAT? It could happen.

I have watched Iron Man and Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and this weekend I suspect I'll sit on my ass watching Gothika, Zodiac and Restoration. Do you think I need help?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The Olympics. I have not watched any of it, very unpartriotic of me, I know. I suck. However, I do catch the updates on the news in the morning. On Wednesday, our women's hockey team beat Sweden 13-1. There was a huge hoopla in the news that the team should have held back on their scoring. WTF? Please, go put your big boy panties and talk to me when you grow a pair. Oh yeah and quit your goddamn whining. Do you see skiers slowing down at the finish line when they're minutes ahead of other competitors? Fuck off wankers.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My ipod is busted. This causes me great stress. I have the white screen of death and after multiple google searches have learned that I should be able to reset this. Yeah fuckyouverymuch Apple. I have 8 different ipods in my house, ranging from 1st generation nanos to the touch, plus an imac. You know what, I'm getting pretty fed up with the total FUCKTARDS at Apple support. Don't tell me that I'm having a problem with my nano that you have never heard of before when a google search brings up 11,375 different fucking hits about people having the same problem. Do ya think you might be having an issue fuckers? Do I look like I just fell off the turnip truck?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This has been a three day work week. Monday was a civic holiday and Wednesday we got blasted with snow so we were shut down for the day. I would love to have the financial ability to work part time... I make an excellent lady of leisure.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I lost 1.5 pounds last week. Yeah me! That's a total loss of 6.5, not great but I'll take it.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I need a blog makeover. My blog is aesthetically boring.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I love my kids. Not news you say? I know. But when they were small, it was so much damn work. Feeding and grooming and disciplining and lugging and bathing. It was work I tell you. Now that they're older, all of the "work" stuff they do on their own. Hell I even have the two teens doing their own laundry. Now that the work stuff is for the most part over, I have fun with them. Let me tell you something, as a young mother with small children, I hated the park. I hated outings to the zoo. I fucking despised doing all those cutesy things meant to entertain small children. Dinosaur themed birthday parties made me want to drown myself. I did them, and I pretended to enjoy doing them, all the while wishing someone would just gouge my eyes out and call it a day. Now? Now we hang out, Nora and I absolutely love being together. The boys both have a really sarcastic sense of humour which I totally get. We talk about stuff going on in the world and they have opinions and ideas. They're mini adults, what's even better...they're mini adults that I like. It's very odd as a mother to realize that you like your kids. We all know there are sometimes worlds between loving someone and liking them. I like my kids. Huh...who would have thunk it was possible?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Happy Friday blogger luves. Anything exciting planned for the weekend?

The RDJ thing can happen.

I have been addicted to the Olympics. I really think it is turning into a serious problem. And since I have been so addicted, I have not gotten off of the couch to go to the gym and I have gained weight. Really, I am blaming the Olympics for my weight gain. That's not f-ed up, is it?

RDJ is just so damn sexy. I would love to touch him.

I'm glad to know I am not alone in the dislike for little kid parties and outings... Man, I really never enjoyed that shit at all. More stressful then anything. But now, I love my young adults. Pinkus has actually got me sucked into the story line of one of his video games and loves talking to me about it.
Ask me how I am in about a week from now after spending a week straight with Pinkus & Ward sharing a room and I can almost guarantee I will be wishing for a large roll of duck tape.

Sorry about your ipod. I know how dependent I am on mine. I hope you can get it fixed/replaced soon.

It's so cool that you actually like your kids :)

I so so so GET what you mean about your kids. I hated that crap too. I always felt like a shitty mother. But now that my kids are teenagers I like being around them. They are smart and funny and enjoyable... well except for those 'moods' they get in. But I can cope with that if they are pleasant the rest of the time.

Thanks so much for linking up with happy hour! Have a great friday!

I was actually hoping that you would leave those pictures up forever! Just put me in that RDJ crazy house also!

I really needed this post...the one about your kids being teens and how you like em...cuz I've been feeling the whole sadness thing that mine are growing up so fast.

LMAO

Visiting from Shells blog - and so glad I did!

I have 2 small boys and hate doing the zoo, park, parties... etc... Glad to hear I am not the only one! You give me teenage hood (which I was totally afraid of) to look forward to!

Love your blog!

I like my kids as mini-adults too! Most of the time anyway. And it is nice that they actually learned all that stuff I taught them so long ago. Now they can make ME breakfast. And even help with my 4 y/o.

Happy Friday and have a great weekend.

You know I haven't watched any of the Olympics, just can't get interested in them. Criminal Minds, CSI, NCIS, and the news, that's my tv programming.

I guess it's contagious. I didn't blog much this week either. I mean, it seemed like nothing happened, but then I am not usually shy about blogging about nothing. Must be the stars, or the planets or the moon. No one ever blames the sun. Ever notice that?

i have watched zero of the olympics as well--not even the highlights. i hate winter in every sense of the word. watching the olympics would just make me feel colder than i already am.

and it's totally normal to pretend you're a fictional character--in my former life, i was jessica rabbit.

I wouldn't be watching the Olympics except for my hottie Apolo Ohno...

And you should check out Bloggy Blog Designz (there's a button on my blog). They have giveaways a lot and are so wonderful to work with (they re-did my blog and lots of others' in our "circle"). Jenna and Whitney are quite the team and they work fast. It's worth checking them out and entering if they have a giveaway going on....

Being obsessed with RDJ is completely normal. Ahem.

I haven't watched the Olympics either. Boring.

I never use my Ipod. I have one of those little clip on ones, supposed to be using it when I go for walks. BWAHAHAHAHAHA I prefer to sit on my ass and use Rhapsody instead.

I have nothing special planned for this weekend and I'm excited about it. A whole weekend with NOTHING to do! Hot diggity dog!

Well, my BFF is coming to town this weekend (without kids) so the party is on. Now you are wishing you lived here, aren't cha?

Have an awesome weekend DM!

Well, this was encouraging that the whole lots of work rearing children kinda dies down. And you get to like them at the end.

Awesome. Being a mom to younger kids needed to hear this.

Now I have to go and see Sherlock Holmes again. What a shame.

I love the fact my boys are older. The youngest loaded the dishwasher last night... the eldest did some laundry... and the middle one, well, he took a break from clogging the toilet and that goes a long way with me (and he's been on Honor Roll all year).

Laura said...
February 19, 2010 at 8:34 PM

I have watched the Olympics, but only because everyone else has it on.

I too hated all the cutesy stuff about little kids. The theme parties, the play dates at the park. Like you I freakin love my older ones to death. Sarcastic, witty, conversations about health, politics, the world.

Danielle said...
February 19, 2010 at 9:25 PM

That is the reason I had my kid. Do do chores! :)

You didn't even watch the Canadian men's hockey game last night?! Appalling behavior from a fellow Canadian! You're officially off my Olympics Closing Ceremony Party invite list.

I really like the zoo. But the rest of the shit I hated. Well, I like *planning* parties if only I didn't have to actually be there to chaperone them. Where was blogworld when my kids was 2-6 !? She is only 9 but I have to admit I enjoy not having to watch every move and monitor and child proof and all that shit.

No plans this weekend except for a baby shower. I will revel in the fact that it's not mine :)

Have a great weekend.

When it comes to kids, we musta been cut from the same mold. I have so much more fun with them now that they can "do" stuff; not so much when they didn't get it.

Barb said...
February 20, 2010 at 8:59 AM

Stopping by via Rxbambi. I also totally agree about the older kids. My oldest is 13 and just started doing his laundry. The baby is 7. Middle kid 9. Nice not to have to baby proof, etc. Happy Friday!

I'm glad your kids turned out to be likeable mini-adults. The jury is still out on mine.

Find a blog that you find appealing and ask who did the design. The prices are usually so much more reasonable than you'd think.

Same old stuff this weekend for me. Listening to my kids scream. Trying not to gouge out my eyes with a spoon.

Oh how I used to adore Ally McBeal. Haven't seen it in years. Didn't she get like really extra crazy towards the end? Sorry about your ipod troubles!

lori said...
February 20, 2010 at 1:08 PM

I found your blog by stumbling and clicking and here I am and I like it!

Ally McBeal - loved that show - weird and quirky and sometimes sappy. I definately see the appeal of RDJ. I was just thinking that last night as we saw "Sherlock Holmes".

Olympics - I like the ice skating and I did catch snow boarding and got to see US dude (can't think of his name right now) do his super flippy thing. Amazing.

And I like your other blog Lose it Bitches - its the kick in the arse I need!

"Fuck off wankers"

That is officially going to be my sentence of the day.

Alright, I've got a bunch of comments, since you've got a bunch of topics... I will comment like you posted...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I'm not watching the Olympics either, good for you for beating the Sweds 13-1, I hate that when they say hold back the score. School them like they want to school you. I LOVE saying wankers BTW...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I agree you do need a blog make over, I too would like one, since mine is extreemly confusing. (A mix of my old blog layout, and a new blog name? Confused I am, yours is just dark, but at least it's not annoying. I've seen some that are bright as fuck. Burn the eyes!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~
I can't wait to get to the point of liking my kids like that. I mean that. I get what your saying. It's like I'm their personal assistant, I HATE going places with them when I need to bring the whole damn house to make them happy. I cheer inside each time the make another milestone, i.e. no sippy, no diaper bag...

ANywho, Happy Friday, I have to catch up on LOST (I heard they did the numbers last week!) clean up my nasty house, and wait for the snow.

RDJ can suck an eight ball outta my bellybutton...any day!

Wait...that was wrong on so many levels. Damn. Sorry. I'll flog myself later.

I can't believe you pretend you are any character played by Calista Flockhart. She looks like a tree frog. Seriously. Look at her facial features. Then look at one of the little green slimy tree frogs. TWINS!

No plans...no sleep. 2am feedings. I am too old for this shit! SERIOUSLY!

That is so wonderful you are enjoying your kids so much. I liked my better when they were younger!!

I just need RDJ for one night. You can have him after that K? =)

So far my weekend has been half lazy and half Wii Just Dance. I predict more of the same for tomorrow.

Love your fragments...a little bit of news about various areas of your life. Every once in awhile I have to declare I love my children too.
