I'm creeped out by all those ED commercials but especially the one with the couple in bathtubs on the roof of an apartment building.
Now I know in large cities there are pools etc on the roof. How that works is something that baffles me, the same way the pools on the third floor of hotels baffles me. But back to the crazy ass commercial. The couple aren't in the same tub, which is what you'd figure if you are going to be "getting it on" thanks to some ED med..right?
They are in his and hers bathtubs, HOLDING HANDS!
Who was the brains behind this ad? Because really..IT MAKES NO SENSE...I also want to know what guy is going to take this drug and then go to the opera with his wife and then jump in the rooftop tub?
It is only the middle of August and the holidays are creeping into the stores. Yesterday at Giant Eagle I saw Peppermint Mocha creamer and Pumpkin Spice creamer in the dairy aisle. These are usually limited editions that only come out for a few months from Oct through Jan.
Uh really, it's August, I am not ready for pumpkin.
Oh and Giant Eagle's going further...pumpkin cookies and pumpkin roll in the bakery.
It is not time for freaking PUMPKIN!
But apparently the memo didn't go out on that....because Bath and Body Works are rolling out their pumpkin scented anti-bacterial soaps now.
Really? Its time?
C'mon people, the kids haven't even gone back to school!!!!
I guess I better start thinking about the Christmas Mix CD...because they've obviously moved up the holidays since last year.
For some reason I've been on a makeup buying binge. Bilbo and Mike will not understand this phenomenon. But once every year, I have a tendency to run out to the drug store and come home with a new stash of war paint. (As my dad likes to call it)
I guess since I'm focusing a lot of my weight again, I need something else to make me feel pretty.
No I don't feel pretty, I feel like a moo cow.
So I'm trying to compensate in other areas.
So yeah...I have loads of new lipsticks and shadows and blushes in my vanity.
All the better to give you guys kisses and longing looks with!
~ The Duchess Of Cambridge is 5'10 and weighs 105 lbs...will someone please force feed this woman a cheeseburger?
~ Sarris chocolate bars are the greatest.
~ Anytime I try to get ahead of myself, I end up far behind.
~ Listening to children's music is like a bad acid trip, especially when I have to review an album and must listen to something repeatedly. You start seeing bright lights and pretty colors and talking in jibberish. It is almost as good as getting a good drink on.
~ Barnes and Noble is my crack..nuff said. Damn them for their 50% off sale. Oh and I'm not a hoarder..I'm a collecter!! HA! Take that Mike!
~ Tried to get my financial aid for the Y done today to no avail. Have I mention when I try to be on top of things, I fail miserably?
~ 8 hours sleep is a blissful thing that I never get.
~ Dad's blood count was 10.5 from the draw on Saturday. Not great, but better than it has been.
~ Found the cookbook with the nutroll recipe that I want to use for the holidays this year. Am I crazy? Yes, but I want to be able to make this once before I subject it on friends and family.
~ I plan on getting the Christmas mix CD done early this year...which means I'd like to be able to send them out at Thanksgiving instead of two weeks before the holiday.
~ I am totally ashamed of our house. It is a mess, there's too many of us living here and not enough space. Our house was build around 1900, and the closets are only about 8 inches deep. There are no kitchen cabinets. Need I go on? I need to get the walls washed down, but the stuff I need to move things requires more than just myself. Plus the other stuff we need requires money we don't have.
I fear the priest showing up to visit our family one day and seeing this hovel. I love our new priest. Father Jerry is one of the few people that I can vent to and sure he may think I'm crazy, but he listens and he doesn't judge. However....if he saw this house he might...
We aren't hoarders either dammit!
~ big sigh!
~ I did get quite a bit accomplished this weekend even though it didn't feel like it..so golf clap for me.
The weekend is hitting the halfway point and I feel angry and frustrated with myself, even though I actually have done things this weekend. I did laundry, cleaned the kitchen, took dad for his blood work and went to Triple B Farms for the Peach Festival.
I know it sounds like I did a lot, but I feel like I did nothing useful.
I try to cram so much into 48 hours and it isn't nearly enough time.
Plus sometime in these hours, I have to go to church and make a few meals.
I'm just spinning my wheels.
I keep trying and I feel like I keep failing. I know it isn't the case, but I guess I set such high goals for myself...
~ Won a raffle at the church festival. That will help with the household bills.
~ Drank Pepsi and Sierra Mist spiked with whiskey. Drank a few shots of whiskey straight...The priest informed me that I was lit and asked me when I was going to dance. (The whole bake sale booth was a bit...erm...lit)
~ Father Jerry is my new favorite priest.
~ The two kids I live with..you know the 77 and 85 year old kids? They are driving me insane.
~ The church festival was the first time I've been outside of my house for longer than 3 hours. I need to get out more often.
~ Made an awesome Apricot Pork Roast in the slow cooker, Ask and I shall share the simple recipe!
Top 5 things that would make concert going more pleasant.
1. Casinos would not hold out their best seats for players club members who really don't know who the artist is they are seeing perform.
2. Short people would get closer seats.
3. They wouldn't serve people that were obnoxiously drunk. (I don't care what the policy may be, no venue in Pittsburgh cares how toasted you are at a show)
4. Camera policies would be removed, unless you are coming in with a huge ass camera. Most people don't take pictures to sell them...though some wankers do..Most people want to have memories and something to share with their friends.
5. Tickets wouldn't go on sale 7 months in advance for a show.
Check Facebook...play games so that my mind is clear...
Make sure dad has his pills...
Give mom her first morning pills, refill her pill boxes for the next two doses.... You have no idea how hard this is...she takes about 7 different meds. Dad thankfully only takes 2 on normal days, thanks to the hospital stay he had two other varieties for the last four days
Get dressed, cos the world at large doesn't want to see me nekkid!
Make sandwich for mom's lunch, (and dad unless he wants a hot pocket)
Get my stuff ready for lunch...
Give mom insulin
Go to work..
Go to the YMCA if time permits
Destress with Farmville/Cafe World and Zoo World..
Somewhere in there you can add, clean litter boxes etc..
I keep thinking I should be paying more attention to the lyrics of this song...then I think...NAH. However it randomly popped into my head the other day so maybe someone was trying to tell me something.
Let me clarify this..in case you've missed me bitching and moaning.
1. I hate extreme heat as much as I hate extreme cold and snow.
2. I hate shorts/tiny clothes..as I am not all that tiny.
3. I'm blind without glasses, therefore waterslides and swimming aren't much fun, because I don't do contact lenses.
When is fall going to arrive?
Oh and ...I'm freaking cranky. If you haven't guessed.
However, Elvis Costello's music is making me feel a little bit better about things!
