um...


Ok... I'm awake... no really...
wearing
~ um, (checks) oh, a pair of shorts...
planning
~ shower... definitely a shower...
~ mmm coffee... a big mug of coffee...
~ clothes? yea... clothes... :)
~ bb3 tonight...
wishing
~ I was just a wee bit more awake so I could actually think, let alone see straight...


We watched "The Majestic" last night... nice story, pulled on a few heart strings... but geez... I'm getting sick of movies pulling on my heart strings... we watched "IAMSAM" a week ago and that was enough for a month of sunday-night-made-for-tv-movies heart string pulling... I think the next movie has got to be something seriously violent or loaded with gratuitous T&A or at the very least humorous!!!
Was Zoolander any good?

Ok... I gotta go get coffee... The boiz and Z went to garage sales this morning and I slept like a dead person... dreaming of scary amusement park rides, strange encounters with people I haven’t seen in ages and construction sites... blech.... sleeping in almost wore me out.

See ya.

close call

Me = Looking for a good salsa recipe... I got the salsa making bug when we went to a country Garlic Festival this afternoon... :D

I have tomatoes, green and red pepers, zuc's, onions, garlic... hot stuff, but I need a recipe that will hit me with the right spices... I want to jar a bunch of this stuff up. and suggestions?


We had a close call today on the road... driving 90kms /hr down a major hill on a semi-country road (well paved but in the countryside) approaching an intersection that was a stop sign for THE OTHER GUY... There was a white camero (or whatever) sitting there... and as we approached the intersection... still moving at at least 80... maybe 25 yards away... the moron begins pulling into the intersection... It was all screaching breaks, shit flying all over the van and me seeing my whole families lives shoot before my eyes...
The other driver stopped while I swerved and then she (yes, I looked...) pulled away and drove on. I had to pull over and let the blood recirculate through out my shaking body... It was one of those heart stopping moments when you realize how thin the string is that holds everything together.

All is well that ends well...

ok

so ... note to self: "Self? Your thumb is not a zuccini!"

of course... the big honking gauze wrap on it, all taped up, kinda makes it look like a mushroom.

I frigg'en CHOPPED into my thumb with this big-ass super sharp knife while dicing a universe of veggies for the salsa...

I'm thinking "thumb" is not a nice personal touch element for the recipe.
