gloria estefan - speechless. she looked great on the grammies... she kinda knocks my socks off...

:

I'm a total basket case tonight... a little edgy and somewhat uncomfortable...
(can't imagine why...)

I'm going to take tomorrow off and rest...catch up on lj friends...

The nature of lj seems to keep re-focusing for me...

I have friends that are people I cannot imagine living without.... you know who you are...
Others, I am completely keen to know what's going on in your lives... like the characters in a favourite book. Each day Lj writes another chapter in this living novel... Some of you come and go... and that's pretty cool too. Like "oh oh oh... so and so has posted again... hmmm I wonder what's been up with them"... like long lost friends that call out of the blue.

When I read that people are in pain because of being cut from someones list... it concerns me that they are sad but mostly it makes me sad that they have been hurt... it shouldn't hurt. It's an ebb and flo and people have to come and go... it's the natural way around here... I know for sure that if I cut someone from my list it's my problem and I just do it... no fan fare and no appologies... shucks, it my journal and i can only read so much... eh.

Did anybody watch heartbreak island tonight? out tape screwed up ... I kinda wanted to see somebody else be a looser for a while...

Tomorrow is Survivor and i'm kinda jazzed. You know, I really hope that scary-jerri doesn't get tossed... she's such fun to hate!!!

Anyways... it's time for sleeping... goodnight lj...

Burrrrrrr

Unbelievably freezing (we call'ed it "bazzing" in high school) outside today... bright sun and squeaky snow.
There's a fluffy looken squirrel crawling across my window sill.... :D
Now, let me steal a process from Krizsa (an unusually inspiring woman!!)

wearing:
~jock support
~b.u.m. equipment boxers
~"blue ice" ice pack (ahhhh!)
~big comfy house coat
~really comfy brand spanking new sox
~wedding ring and my 1986 grad ring from college...

consuming:
~old'ish coffee (gotta make new)

remembering:
~that I ate a strawberry pop-tart an hour ago (really!!!)

hearing:
~Dido "don't think of me" nice and loud (kids at day care, zebra at work)

wishing:
~my friend laini would get some decent sleep

working on:
~my resume for the boss to submit on a new bid with the Bank of Canada...

Later lj...

ps. there is no spoon.

there oughtta be a law...

got kids? do you read to them? do you own any kiddie books by Rober Munsch?
:
Tell me, have your read "Love You Forever"?
no, grab a piece of paper and write the name down and next time your out - kids or no kids, whoever you are... and if you're in a book store, find this little short kiddie book and read it. If you're not practically ready to bawl your eyes out at the end you are not human...
:
"When the son came home
that night, he stood for a long time
at the top of the stairs."
:
By that point in this stupid story I am a total wreck. I can watch a doctor stick a big ass syringe into my balls without flinching, I have held my son who's skin was totally grey, thinking he was dead (he's fine ...long story) and keep it together enough to deal with the 911 emergency people... but I cannot read this story without crying... And it's a story you're supposed to read to your kids....
:
there oughtta be a law against that kind of thing...
Amazing....

cooken advice needed

I have a 2.2 lb sirloin roast... frozen... well, it's not frozen anymore... captain micro has reduced the degree to which it is frozen... but it's still a rock in the middle.

It's now in a glass baking pan covered in spices, covered with foil, in the oven at 350. How long?

dinners not till 6:00...

Things like: STOP IDIOT AND GET THAT OUT OF THE OVEN works for me... or OK, now turn it down to 300 after 30 minutes and slow roast that baby till 6:00 ?
(note: its 1:00 pm here...) 5 hours has got to be too long...

Ritz Crackers with melted cheddar cheese is a wonderful source of daily nutrition... right?

hey lj...

ok... got my ice pack, note pad, kiddies in bed and a tape of survivor for tonight...
guess that adds up to a plan!
:
Hey, thanks for the food advice today... the roast was delicious - george calls it black chicken... if its not a vegitable, fruit, pasta or potatoes... and he likes it ... it's called chicken. If he doesnt like it... it's called meat. George will simply not eat meat... but he'll eat chicken! :D
:
anyways... more later...
ps. the community thing here in Lj land is really cooking... I've found some really great ones.
