Barney Love

When I was in DC last week (melting in 100 degree heat and humidity), I took a quick tour of the Whitehouse. That's when it happened. I met Barney, the president's dog. He looked in to my eyes. I looked in to his. He kissed me on the nose. We had a moment.

I'm not big in to politics and, if anything, I lean to the left, but Barney melted my heart and I have renewed respect for President Bush in raising such an upstanding young pup. If only his daughters were as well behaved!

Feeling Better

The miracle of modern medicine. I'm about 90%. Sick of drinking cranberry juice though!

If I Die Before I Wake

Well, you know something is wrong with you when you drive along in 95 degree humid weather with the windows closed and the air off and you are STILL getting goosebumps.

I have a bladder infection. In thinking about it more through the haze of a fever and nausea, I might have a bladder infection combined with the yuckiness Joel had.

Call me a wimp, but I feel like I'm going to die. God forbid I get something really wrong with me!

Aaah, the Weekend

The weekend is finally here. Hubby and I are running off to The 1000 Islands to be in a golf tournament with his parents - all for fun. Good thing since I'm very much out of practice.

My niece Mya is doing very well, up to 3lbs 6oz as of a couple days ago and feeding on her own. Still a little peanut, but growing stronger each day. Sis is almost back to her old self, worrying heavily about how her hair looks and when she will able to wear her jeans again. I think little miss Mya will be a fashionista out of the gate. Apparently the first outfit she wore was a little bee outfit I got her from Gymboree. So instead of a little peanut, she was a little honey bee.

Testing 1,2,3

Daniela has been taking tests like a madwoman. I have partaken of a few...

First I tested out as a Pisces, though I'm pretty sure my true Scorpio nature is just a few drinks away at any given moment.

Then I found out I was The Girl Next Door type.

From there I went on to find out that my candy heart is "Be Good" (in direct opposition to the Pisces result).

Next thing you know, I determine that I am indeed a Sex Goddess - PERSEPHONE, Goddess of the Night (see Daniela's blog for description).

Latest is that I'm an ENFP - Extrovert, Intuitive, Feeling, Perceiving - still the same since I first took the Myers-Briggs test about 10 years ago. I think I'm even more extroverted now...

Tests are fun...

Bargain Bonus

I got two new pairs of shoes today. A $200 pair and a $140 pair. I only paid $29 each though. Oh happy day. I love to "get a deal". A small part of me wanted to buy them only for that reason.

I am a bargain shopper, and in saying that, I realize it is a very vague term. A bargain shopper could be someone who shops for clothes at WalMart. This is NOT me. (Target, yes). A bargain shopper could be someone who shops at Banana Republic but buys stuff on sale. This would be me. OR, depending on your status in life, a bargain shopper could be someone who shops at Bluefly.com and pays $450 for a Fendi purse instead of $1000. This also, is NOT me. If I won the MegaMillions, it would be me.

Does Size Matter?

Since I attended SIGGRAPH conference last year, I've been getting alot of spam at work. Much of it has been pornish. Today I got this email at work...

In a recent survey conducted by Durex condoms, 67% of women said that they are unhappy with the size of their lovers. Proof that size does matter! A large member has much more surface area and is capable of stimulating more nerve endings, providing more pleasure for you and your partner. Our revolutionary pill developed by world famous pharmacist is guaranteed to increase your size by 1-3". Enter here for details

OK, not only disturbing that I got it at work, but disturbing because the LAST thing I want to do is INCREASE my size.

From Sex-Pot to Sex-Not

I took the What Zodiac Sign SHOULD You Be? test that Daniela linked to. I had always suspected I wasn't totally Scorpio, but, alas, I've turned out to be a Pisces:

The planets are very complex. Maybe your astrologer will disagree, and maybe a few tendencies will vary, but overall you're a PISCES. You've got that water-sign style which is characterized by an emotional and intuitive nature. You have a magical and spiritual presence, which is why Pisces people are said to be "old souls." As a Pisces, you are especially imaginative, artistic and sensitive. A loyal and generous friend, you are also known for being the quintessential romantic. You thrive on change and adapt quickly and effortlessly to new situations. But your tendency toward self-doubt and insecurity leaves you a little overly impressionable. You aim to please and hate to say "no" for fear of disappointing others. A true Pisces is a wonderfully caring and invaluable friend. You are most noted and admired for your abundance of genuine compassion.

I'm bummed. It's pretty accurate, but I'd rather be a Scorpio Sex-pot.

What's Your Sign?

Daniela found an interesting description of Scorpios.

Yes, Scorpios often get a bad wrap, labelled as the ones "most likely to have murdered someone" or all about "sex, sex, sex" (ok, maybe that's not bad persay). Knowing many Scorpios - Daniela, myself, my brother, my Mom, and others... I'd say that the description Daniela found is pretty good... we're not all bad.

Of course after reading that Scorpios are considered the "sex-pots" of the zodiac, now my ego IS the size of Australia.

I'd really like to know everyone else's sign... so comment away.

Hectic Life

Life has gotten quite hectic these days and I can't seem to find enough time in a day. I need brownies... not the kind you eat, the kind who clean your house.

Mood Ring

I found this funny:

A woman is talking to a friend at a supermarket.
She tells her, "My husband bought me a mood
ring the other day.
When I'm in a good mood, it turns a
beautiful blue.
When I'm in a bad mood, it leaves a
big red mark on his forehead."

Mya New-a Niece-a

Here's a pic of my precious little niece. Lots of hair, unlike her Aunt Tina, who was bald until the age of 3.

Funny side note: when my brother Eddie (always trying to get a laugh) heard that they were naming her Mya, he said, "you mean like 'mya ballsa itcha'?" Sherri didn't laugh all that hard at that one.

Aunt Tina

After 2 months in the hospital, my sister went in to labor this morning and delivered a 3lb 2oz baby girl via c-section - 10 weeks early. Mya Karyna is doing very well and is VERY CUTE (no, I'm not biased).

She was wearing a little pink hat - yep, already fashionable, that little niece of mine.

I am totally addicted to this game. On top of that, while I'm playing it, I get a strong urge to eat Oreos.
