Alright! Alright already...

Update: I didn't get an IPod. I opted for a Zune and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!

I give up.
I want an IPod...

Hard as a rock!

One of the 'cons' about hitting middle age is that you hit that point in the matrix where the number of physical tests that are recommended for your "age group" goes up.
So now I'm supposed to periodically have:
  • the yearly poke and feel
  • a year physical
  • my boobs smoooshed
  • a stress test
  • a camera up my ass
  • a bone scan

I'm sure there are more, but I don't want my insurance company to drop me.

So, yesterday I had the bone scan. You lay on this x-ray like table and a big metal arm thing x-rays you from right below the breast to the top of the thigh.
This test checks for bone loss in menopausal years.

GOOD NEWS! Doc says I have very minimal bone change in one area (he didn't say where) no biggie. He also said my spine was better than perfect. I don't know how anything can be better than perfect...but I'll take his assessment. He said at this rate, I should never break a bone in this lifetime. Which is a good thing considering my husband is already badly arthritic stricken.
Just means I'll be able to help his old cobbled ass when he falls and breaks a hip and his life alert doesn't kick in.

The most rediculous thing heard on New Years Eve...

This may just win, hands down for the stupidist thing heard in the year 2008....

This gal and her bf were very drunk. I asked "so who's drivin home?" She's says "he is". I'm like "uhhh....he's really trashed". She says.......

"Oh don't worry, he's a really good drunk driver."

Bin Laden ...where are you?

I think the same people hired to look for Bin Laden, are the same people looking for this dude. WTF?

Who did it?

12% of Pakistani's believe that the U.S was behind Bhutto's killing. I wouldn't put it past them.

I love a survey to see how many American's believe the same thing.
Bush is afterall the anti-christ....

Arthur Itis?

Right after the New Year my left hand started hurting really bad. Just my thumb and first 2 fingers. I kept running my brain through the events of New Years Eve...did I hit my hand on something? Did I punch someone? I kid...I've never punched anyone in my life that wasn't a sibling and I honestly was not THAT drunk New Years Eve.
The pain didn't go away. I developed a little lump of sorts between my first 2 knuckles what appeared to be a swollen muscle or tendon. I couldn't figure it out. I was thinking that maybe I was developing arthritis. But why just there and why all of a sudden? Like over night.
Then my brilliance appeared.....
My diagnosis? Nintendo DS bad for old people.
I bought myself a Nintendo DS months ago. I bought it for the Brain Age and Flash Focus games (right).
My son and hubby got me the new Zelda game for Christmas after my brother and sister in law told them of my addiction to the original Zelda game on the first Nintendo (late 1990's?).
I had realized that if I wasn't eating, sleeping, working or doing school work, I was playing Zelda. Good god. It has become my crack.

Avon Calling!

I've decided that I can't pluck the gray/white hairs out of my eyebrows anymore.
I have so many now, that if I continue this ritual, I will look like the Avon lady that used to come to our house that used to shave off her eyebrows and draw them back on.
She smelled too....I still hate the smell of Avon's colognes.
Gawd it's fun getting old.

How Stoopid Can You Be?

I am an Information Security Professional. What does that mean?
Well, part of it means that while others read the daily newspaper, I digest articles, white papers, blogs, underground websites, et al. just to attempt to keep on top of a game that changes by the minute....literally.
Anyhow, it's always fun to come across blatant stupidity such as this:

Look at me! I'm F'n Einstein!!!

I knew there was a reason for all these years of misery!

Ok, I'm allowed to poke fun because above my waist has ALWAYS been at "least" 3 sizes smaller than my hips and that is at my lowest weight.

Highlights of NYE

Wore my Steve and Barry's "Baked Potato" t-shirt, which proved to be quite appropriate by the end of the evening.
Drank shooters of cherry vodka and pomegranete (sp?) Rockstar. Very nummy.
My best buddy and I attempted to cut a turkey ... buzzed. So that was interesting. And one ended up at the e.r.
Met a woman that I went to middle school with. Small world...
Drank alot of Jack and Diet Coke.
Discovered thee most wonderful dessert on earth. Cheesecake like thing flavored with Captain Morgan's. I didn't find the recipe online or I would have linked to it. If I find it, I will fix. Or I'll post the recipe if I get hold of it.
Watched a bunch of middle aged men almost fall over when this very pretty 20 something tried to fix the zipper on her stilletto boots.
Smoked alot of cigarettes.
While out smoking, watched fat naked chick run out on porch across the street to yell at some guy. Fast forward to next cigarette...........2 cop cars at fat naked chicks house.
All in all it was an enjoyable, uneventful nite. Everyone had a good time and no body died.
