Horoscope Share

March 1, 2007
Just when you might have thought that the whole world was turning on you, Lora, things are starting to come back around. You will find that you don't need to hide behind your shell. In fact, the more that you let your true spirit emerge, the more allies you will gain in your army. Your secret ambition to take over the world is becoming a much more attainable goal than you might have first thought.

Now that's a good horoscope! (LOL)

The Health to Shine

How's your health? Mine isn't bad but at 42 I think about my health a lot more. The signs of getting older are showing on me more. I can stop myself from getting old of mind but what simple things can I do for my body? That answer is easy. Know what I'm eating and know what's eating me.

Salt, Caffeine and Stress are braking me down and killing me softly while I sit here typing. So how do I fix this? I don't believe you can fix getting older but you can stop yourself from helping it along. For me Stress is the easy one to fix. Have more sex, do more routine walking and a little yoga for balance. You can be strong as an Ox but without balance you'll fall over. The Caffeine I've given up before. Nothing like a week with a really bad headache. The plus side is I'll look younger in a month and I'll have less joint pain. Now to the bad one, Salt. I don't even want to think about it. My salt problem doesn't come from food but from Beer. (Buffy want Beer!) I refuse to think about this now for fear of deep depression. I could help myself by eating more oatmeal, blueberries and nuts. I only like oatmeal in cookies.

This is my rambling to many I'm sure. However as a people we spend tons of money to look better and feel better when the answer to the problem is very clear. We are what we eat.

Did Someone Say Snow?

So you have the white cold fluffy stuff still on the ground. Poor Babies!

Let's do a quick check of the Austin Weather. Oh would you look at that it's 82 here right now with wonderful blue skies. That must be why I have on a tank top and flip flops.

Tomorrow maybe we'll try "Blogging from the Backyard".

Down side of warmer weather; I have on my jogging pants. You don't wear underwear with these pants. Trinity came up behind me and stuck dry oak leaves down my pants. Yes, she thought it was really funny. Now I have bits of leaf where I don't want to think about. I guess if I was up north I'd have snow down my pants. I can honestly say I've been there and done that.

However, the birds are sining and the breeze is warm. "Sasha go get me a beer!"

I want to be Jack

Last night watching the Oscar's I realize I wanted to be Jack Nicholson. He's just a cool old fart. Ole Brittney may have Jack's hairdo but she'll never have his cool.

So how are you? Me, well I feel like an elephant stepped on me and I need sleep. If I don't make any sense you'll know why but I often don't make sense and you come here anyway. (thank you for that)

It was beautiful here today. I did a little digging in the dirt and it felt good. My Grandmother always said that a little dirt under the fingernails never hurt anyone.

I think I join a cult over the weekend but I'm not quite sure yet. If I start saying "Do It" in my sleep, then I guess I did. Thats what you get when you go to a party full of programmers. Weird ass caffeine heads the whole lot of them.

I'll leave you with a quote from Trinity.

"Mom this medicine taste like medicine"

This story is too funny not to share. My mother-in-law owns a duplex and she lives in one side of it. She's had some interesting renters over the years but her new renter takes the prize.

Guys checks out the apartment and says he'll take it. Hands over two months rent plus deposit. He takes a week to move in. Then a few days ago he knocks on my mother-in-laws door asking if she has a broom while in his tighty-whities a.k.a. his underwear. He tells my mother-in-law that he hopes he didn't embarrass her but he's a Nudist. She tells me she really didn't care what he was because she was doing something and just wanted to get back to it. She did however give him a broom. He came back a little later to give her back the broom but this time he wasn't wearing anything. Since then my mother-in-law has been avoiding this man. In fact she at my house now I think hiding out.

So my mother-in-law tells me this story and asking me what she should do. What advise would you give her?

My husband, her son's advise is; Well is he good looking? Yes, well what the hell are you bitching about Mom.

My advise, the evil daughter-in-law; Get a ruler. No, not to hit him with. While he's got that thing out tell him you might as well measure it to see if its all that. My thinking is that most men fear that size measurement and would rather put it away then deal with the humiliation.

This Did Not Just Happen To Me!

I need chocalate, alcohol, or maybe that dude from the show Heroes that wipes your memory. My parents do not read my blog. No way. They did not see the post about "Old Folks having Sex". No this did not happen. Why did my Mother just act weird on the phone. Why did it take her 5 rings to answer her phone. She told me she was watching a movie. Funny because when she was here at Thanksgiving she said she didn't really watch movies. Please someone tell me I didn't just call my parents while they were watching a porn movie. No this did not just happen to ME! I am so going to be sick. Now if she calls me back here in a few hours I'll think I've over reacted but if I don't hear from her for a week, I'm so freakin' going to know. The bright side is that I didn't catch them when I was younger. Right.

Got to go. I need to go clean something.

I read the word Nymphomaniac in a book over the weekend and it bothered me. What a bullshit word. It's male counterpart is "satyriasis". Have you ever heard this word? Both were considered disorders of hypersexuality. To me the word is just another way to be controlled by "The Man". If I like sex I'm a Nympho and if I hate it I'm Frigid. What do you call a guy that doesn't like sex? I'll let you answer that.

Hey, I'm on the Phone.....

When I'm on the phone I draw. I don't talk on the phone much. I worked in Customer Service for a mail order catalog for over 5 years and I learned to hate the phone. Hey but I still give good Phone. LOL

Friday is clean the house day. Check, I got that done. Now it's time for wine, a book, and pillows. Lots and lots of pillows. Just once I'd like to have a magnum wine bottle, stick it in a brown paper bag and sit on the curb drinking the wine. Yeah that's stupid! Cleaning has fired my brain today.

Baby it might be cold outside but have fun this weekend!

Blogging From Bed

Writing your post while nesting in the bed sounds like a good idea. Sounds warm and cozy. Well that's what I thought, now every bone in my back hurts.

The day after Valentines the Wire is running this story "Sex doesn't stop unless you let it." The story is about sex-ed for old folks. The smart-ass in me wants to sign my parents up for this class but then they'd tell me about it. That's one mental picture I don't need.

I must say I'm glad to be off the Love Train. However I noticed to many bloggers are doing nothing more then bitching today. Please keep that disease away from me. Give me the funny disease. It should work well with the crazy disease I already have.

Go now, eat Popsicles and shovel snow!

Well the Indianapolis Colts are Super Bowl Champions. The first kick off gave me bad flash backs of the Chicago Bears of old. I'm glad it worked out for the Colts. I wonder how Grossman feels. The team he plays for lost but his home state team won. Grossman went to High School at Bloomington South. Yes, I remember Bloomington South making me earn my points from the free throw line one night but I put down 11. Sad thought I just had was that Indiana celebrates it basketball player more then it's football players or even baseball players. Example Damon Bailey. How many people in Indiana know who Scott Roland is and where he's from. How many people could point out Ken Dilger? You show Baileys picture and everybody knows him. I guess my point is that the Colts Won but Mr. Grossman is an Indiana boy that should be remembered.
My son Tory and I took notes on commercials last night. Tory's pick was the Snickers commercial where the guys pull hair off their chest. My Fav was Block Buster. I thin the Foo Log has that commercial on his blog today. We also liked E-Trade, Carrier Builder, and Taco Bell. Also Tory wants to see the movie Wild Hogs.

Dear Mr Prince, I think you did a hell of a job in the rain. Purple Rain in the rain was surreal.
