She's baaaaaack!

I have missed blogging. This lovely place was blocked for a while... did I forget my password? yes. Was I told there was suspicious activity? Yes, but a blog of mine would be suspicious of some sort.
And many things have happened since the last post. Somethings, I'll share to catch people up and somethings are just better left in the past.
I just got done with Hedwig... the second edition and it was an amazing experience. The first was WOW... this was amazing. And I'd do it all again. So that's one thing to catch up on... the rest... well... We will see how it all unfolds.
It's good to be back.

I am alive

Too busy to write
Lots of things to say and don't know where to begin
But I will... I promise that I won't be so negligent on my blogging

happy spring

He DIDN'T!!! Yes, he did.

You know... I love this show. It's a guilty pleasure. I have to admit that! I've posted things here about this show and I love it and well... my crush on Jon
But look at the pic with the chick
Pissed up
yep... has had some beer and whatnot.
Ok, The rumor has it that Jon has been having an affair. I"m not going to cast any stones... I think that if I was married at 22, and at 33 had 8 kids and an overbearing wife and well... a life that is under scruitny 24/7, I don't quite know what I would do.
I"m just going to wait and see how this unfolds.... gonna be an interesting season on TLC

New Fun At Work!

We are having ANOTHER event... a fashion show. And yours truly is co-directing. I had to find the models and write the script and make the music cd. (Now that was the fun part...)
But I have decided what my new profession will be....
I love cupcakes.

Check YO Bucket!

I am addicted.
A friend of mine played me Paul Cebar and the Milwaukeeans live and I was hooked. Done gone hooked.
They remind me of the wonderful days of One World, but this guy is off the hook.
The song "Check Your Bucket" - Anyone that can juxtapose an old dance hall tune- turning into a funk classic that rivals George Clinton - with "Sexual Healing" and The Staples Singers'
"I'll Take You There" has got my props. And anyone that can turn Leonard Cohen's "Dance Me To The End Of Love" to a samba has won my heart.
So plan to see him at the end of the month and this same friend told him about me... maybe thinking we could get the man booked for a gig in Northern Sconny... and well, maybe let a chick sing back up on one or two.
I'm game
And I'll let you know. Too cool...


Yep... whatever.
I'm feeling like I'm in a bit of a flux again. Too much work, not enough sleep, too many things I'd rather be doing... You know the routine.
Things have gotten to the point that I KNOW I've been drinking too much coffee and am so tired that in the last 10 days, I"ve fallen asleep with the lights on. YES, I just roll over away from the lamp thinking that it will be off. Then I wake up and the light is on and I look at the clock and I think... this isn't good.
I'll get through this week and I know I'll be just fine. Then Spring will happen soon and things will be just fine. Its been a long winter. Its been hard - and fattening. But all will be well.
Happy Spring.

Sunday Night Guilty Pleasure!

Sundays are wonderful days. I usually have them off. I catch up on things, do laundry, clean, stay in sweats all day long... take a hot bath
and on Saturday, the mailman delivers my NEW YORKER
Now, What would I...being in Wisconsin... want to read the New Yorker.
Well, reading the CITY PAGES has got to be too depressing. I live 1.5 hours from the city and finding out about far too many things happening and not being able to be there got to be far too sad...
so reading the New Yorker keeps me "happening" but not depressed
Tonight I read about Van Morrison being in a bar (very much like the Joynt) talking about roots rock n roll. I read about Lily Allen. Last week, it was about Beyonce or Bon Iver or John Irving or just about any topic....
I know what is happening on Broadway and what is in books and movies.
And I don't feel bad. It's like its so far away that I don't feel bad.So.... I like my Sunday nights with the New Yorker. I feel so much like a Hipster, but yet still myself.

One Class act!

It's Miss Mim's birthday very soon.
This girl somehow manages to hang with so many musicians. This pic was from the Varsity theatre... Ben Kweller and the Watson twins
Ben sat down beside her and put his head on her shoulder. Yep... and the Watson Twins think shes cute.
I think that too.
But she has a knack for hanging with the musicians...
Wonder if she can hook me up with some Leonard Cohen tix and a chat with the man
Love you baybee sister and happy birthday real soon!
Gotta love the PBR and the throne

Expanding one's Vocabulary

I howled with laughter on this one.
Thank you, Molly for sending me to this site. The folks that do this are twisted. Just like me.
Need a laugh?
Go here!

So NOT a Morning Person.

People that know me well know that I don't do well in the morning. Mornings are just not my time of day that I am on. And lately, I have had to have many MANY early mornings. It has really tested me.
Work has been so very busy... therefore the lack of postings. Lots of changes, lots of interesting (hint of snark) revelations and just a rather rollercoaster of a new year at work.
I'm not going into it... I can't and won't. (I'm not getting fired for either divulging work stuff here on my blog or going off on a rant about it.... there is no point in doing so. I"ll bitch in person if need be.)
BUT! I have a job. I have insurance. I have a pretty good place to go to every day. (yes... almost everyday.)
But I'm tired... and I am not a morning person.
Thank goodness I have found some really good fresh ground coffee and If I open...I drink the whole pot. YES THE WHOLE POT. And I am happy and energetic. HE HE HE

I'm not THAT old!

Um... I don't quite know what to say. I KNOW I'm not ever remotely qualified for the program.
Granted, this travel kit is pretty cool and would come in mighty handy I guess, but JEEZ... I'm not THAT old.
(But Getting a discount would be pretty cool...)

Why Didn't I get this Elective in College?

My mouth runneth over.
I've had a strange fascination with cussing for years.
My inner censor has been trained by George Carlin, mentored by Bob Saget, and finely tuned by Jason Mewes.
I work with kids from 5th grade to seniors in highschool in youth drama. I HAVE to watch my mouth even when I want to really REALLY say what is truly on my mind. (I don't think that I need to get phone calls from moms or dads telling me that they don't approve of my adjectives I use with their children)
So when I saw this... I thought of the very creative ways that I and many of my friends have used the medium of swear words. A few people come to mind and well...the thought makes me laugh and pee a little! (I'm not mentioning any names... like maybe put red hair on the cartoon girl ... hint)
So I thought of the fact that I never got a chance to take a college course like this. I mean, we did take some classes that were inane and absolutely useless, but we did them because of "a well rounded education". I truly think that this class would have been far more beneficial than my Intro to Women's Studies or that Police science course because I thought I wanted to be a cop. (Don't ask. I was having a moment)
At one time I wanted to be a teacher for English as a Second Language. I KNOW that I would have to teach a unit based on the above course. (Think Harold Ramis' character in Stripes). I remember foreign exchange students asking "what does *#&@ mean?" and having to explain, with red face, what it meant. Now...oh heck, I'll flat out let ya know what it is all about.
If you have any creative new combinations... please send me them. Asshat is getting a little old. I need something new!

Stick a fork in me and call me done!

It is mid-January and I think I've had it.
It's just a "joy" to live in the north during winter. This season has proved to be truly exciting... strange stuff from the sky that makes the road greasy, ice storms that mess with your car doors, wide bands of snow that are unpredictable, downfalls of feet, and then my fave: windchills and temperatures that freeze your snot in one breath. Sorry to be that blunt, but I haven't felt that cold since Superior. Damn, I woke up and thought I was there by how cold it was in my apartment.
Like the days that I am counting until I eat sushi...I am counting the days until March 20/21 - the first day of spring.
But then again, to play devil's advocate, it did snow in April of last year and I have the pictures to prove it.
I am so done.

Messin with My PB!

I"m peeved.
I had to throw my PB Crackers away yesterday. Great for taking to lunch and not that fattening...
But due to the latest food safety issue... I had to throw the stuff away. Fine. Whatever. I don't choose to take the chance...since my fun time in the ER with food poisoning. (but the drugs were fun and insurance paid for them!)
Thank goodness they didn't mess with my Jif of Skippy.


1. Would you make a fool out of yourself in public if it meant you were making your partner laugh?
I think I would do anything to make my partner happy…how about tap dancing in a Gorilla suit???
2. Would you prefer the lights on or off during sex?
Depends on the mood we are in
3. Do you judge people solely by their musical preferences?
Can I be a snob…Sometimes I do.
4. If you could 'take back' your virginity from your first partner, would you?
Tough question…but you don’t get “backsides”
5. Would you ever start a relationship with someone who was still living with an ex for financial reasons?
Now that is a gray area…I’ve seen it. It can really mess things up. Not a good idea if you’re not completely over it in your head or your heart.
6. Do you need to know everything about someone's past?
No, but I think knowing the major influential life experiences and some of the things that contribute to “issues” is quite helpful.
7. It is more worthwhile and satisfying to improve the world or appreciate the world?
Yes! I think that you need to do both.
8. Do you feel you have a purpose or calling in life?
Yes…I think we all have a purpose.
9. Do you believe that dreams can be messages from a "higher level"?
I do believe dreams are a part of our subconsciousness trying to work something out or trying to tell us something that is hidden under the surface. I’ve had dreams that have helped me to answer some questions or have prompted me to really take a look at something that I have been trying to avoid.
10. Would you rather have a great friend you could share everything with or a great lover you can't really talk to?
Yes. I want both.
11. Is the male or female body the closest to perfection?
It might be tough being a girl..but a female body.
I DELETED 12...I'm NOT going there.
13. Do you like kissing in public?
I can kiss in public, but full on making out is just not classy.
14. Do you have a fetish that you would like to employ in your next relationship?
Umm…gotta think about that. I plead the fifth.

Yep, been there done that.
17. Generally, in life, what makes you happy?
Family and friends that love me.
18. How well do you handle criticism?
I do ok…if it gets really harsh, I get very defensive, but most of the time I’m alright and then I rant if I don’t agree – in private.
19. Would you like to date someone a lot purer than you?
I don’t know. I have but it has caused conflict.
20. When fooling around with someone, do you sometimes have sexual fantasies about other people?
Um…not really. No. I haven’t.
21. Is it possible for full-figured women to be equally attractive as thinner women?
Yes…sometimes the full-figured woman is far more attractive. (a woman is self confident if she really accepts her body and that is very sexy.) Beauty is as beauty does.
22. You've just met someone incredible while out with friends, and (s)he's been kind enough to cough up a phone number. How long would you wait to call?
A day…been there done that.
23. Do you think the family of a murder victim should have any say in what punishment is given to the murderer?
I think their opinion should be considered, but the judge and jury will have to decide based on the law.
24. Would you have a "Happy Button" installed on your body, connected to your brain, which would instantly make you very happy whenever you pressed it?
There are some days that I would absolutely love it.
25. Would you rather know everything about your mate, or be regularly surprised?
as long as the surprises aren't huge but cute little things, then surprised.
26. We are all human, do you judge someone for a past indiscretion?

well good things can be interesting... i'm going with both
35. Is it better to have loved and lost then never to have loved at all?
for sure.
