Thoughts and opinions


My thoughts and opinion as of lately. I did say opinion, right?! Steffie, get a drink. You've been warned.....throwing head back laughing...



  • Lost is finally returning! Big fan of this program. Past life very interesting...

  • Love Jon Stewart's satire of the State of the Union Address. hysterical...

  • I'm enthusiastic that John Edwards will make the right choice and endorses Hillary. Yeah, baby! We need a little spice back in the White House after the last administratin. With her medical reform bill and Edwards advocating to end poverty we've got a win-win situation! And the added bonus. Bill. Yep, I'm a fan!

  • We did the happy dance when Guillani bombed miserably up against McCain in Florida! And cheered even louder when he stepped down. Whew that could've been disaterous!

  • If McCain would manage slither his way into the White House the last chortle would be on the "red team". He's views are more dem than republican. I'm hedging my bets on "the lady". Here's to Super Tuesday!

  • I'm eating crow. My own. I know I bragged that my housekeeper was the best of the best. Worth every penny. I laugh. She is a fraud. We fondly refer to her as "Agador". Yes, she does wear shoes, but she's so inept at her job. You're asking yourself why we haven't fired her? Well, she sort of has us by the balls. We employ the Peruvian mob. Her family. I wouldn't want her family going hungry. She has a handsome compensation package which includes bennies plus holiday pay. I donate all my girls gently used clothing to her for her kiddies tto!. Not enough to entice her to do a better job. Sure it smells like Mr. Clean came in and buffed them with his own nogging. However we're not laughing anymore. Especially after discovering the mound of paper she left on the floor after emptying the paper shredder. Or, the dust bunnies on the banister and dust so thick on the pictures I could pen my name. Or the toothpaste still on the cabinet from the week before. Did I mention the bathrooms she forgets to clean?! Or the trash she neglects emptying. AND SHE's at OUR HOME EVERY WEEK FOR SIX HOURS! Oh, damn I could go on, and on and on.We've carefully explained to her what we require and went so far to demonstrate what she's missed. I was amused before. But I'm not laughing now! I am desperately seeking a new housekeeper.

  • My heart aches for my dear friend M and his partner. They are separating after almost 10 years together . I was blind sided when he let it slip that they were going their separate ways......I still remember the day M "came out" to me. A memory burned into my soul as if it were yesterday. We had gone to lunch to celebrate my birthday. When I still celebrated getting old! I knew something was going on with him. I could tell by his actions. He was fidgety. He looked at me and I knew. I had a sinking feeling . I don't know how I missed the mention of the Cher concert which he was giddy with anticipation of going to but he was telling me how he felt he was being deceitful not telling me. We. Were.Friends. He needed me to know. I stifled myself from sobbing. I didn't want him to think I was ashamed of him. I felt proud that he trusted me enough to share something so intimate. He about knocked the wind out of my sail. Not that he was gay, but that I missed it! My gaydar usually is much better. He is this big ole' handsome 6'4 green eye'd beauty with a head of hair and the sultriest voice with a hint of a southern drawl. He has a way with men and women. People just like him. And I simply adored him too. He is the brother I never had. You too Rock. I know he's going through an emotional time right now. I hope he always knows how much I love him. Dh and I both. Hugs my friend.

  • One in 50 people in the nation's capital has AIDS. One in 20 is infected with HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. The city has the highest HIV infection rate in the nation. City officials are calling it a "modern epidemic." This is frightening!!! Click here.

  • I need to have a root canal. My first at the ripe age of 32. I don't know what to expect. Will it hurt? I've got all my scripts filled. Valium, Amoxicillen,(for mvp) and penicillin for the infection. I'm already nervous.

  • I have a secret and it's gonna shake my world up. I can't tell you though. Not yet...

Wow! Where to start! NOT a fan of Hilary or Bill for that matter. I will not vote for anyone because they have a vagina, and I don't see much else she's got to offer.

Sorry about the inadequate housekeeper. I can't afford one at all, so I'd be happy with an inadequate one! ;)

Root canal? Not a big deal at all. I had my first (and hopefully only!) 6 months ago. Once they numb you up with novicane (just like with a filling), you don't feel a thing. REALLY. When it's done, it's done. The only awkward thing is the big 'thingy' they put to stretch your cheek over to get in there to work, but not painful. You won't need any of those pain meds, there is no pain after the novicane. NO WORRIES!

Now, this secret... you can't leave me hanging girl... you know I won't tell a soul!

Salome's Mom said...

I am glad you were there for your friend. When my best friend came out he thought I was going to turn my back on him. I would never do such a thing, he is to me the brother I never had. I am sorry about the housekeeper. She should not be taking advantage of your generosity. It is her loss.

I am also voting for Hillary, so, I am with you there. Now, why are you leaving us hanging with a secret?

Special K said...

That I've gotta secret thing is bullshit. That's all I'm gonna say. :P

mommy24treasures said...

for me on my root canal its the sounds that bug me more than pain, the drilling, the smells, yuck.
But no, there is no pain after.

kerri said...

Send over the housekeeper, inadequate and all, I could use the help after Jillian the f5 tornado goes through the house once a day.
Root canal, if you medicate with vino, how bad can it be??
Secret, what, from us??? Who are we going to tell??
Did the beefcake propose?? Come on cough, curiousity is killing me here. You know your old counter will be a rollin' today as I check back a hundred times, geesh..

E. said...

I said it once and I'll say it again - YOU TEASE!
As far as the root canal goes - I'm all for something as long as there is laughing gas involved. Ask them if they'll give you some to go.

Beverly said...

Are you adopting again?

I hope that is the big secret.

isn't it nice to know that those of us with opposite political leanings can still be friends?

Jewels of My Heart said...

First, let me say, "I love you and I always will!"
Moving on.... we shall refrain from politics as our topic of conversation.... I love you too much to SMACK you. lol
So sorry about the root canal... wear head phones and bring your Ipod. It will help, you won't be haunted by the sounds from hell.
Now...... I hate surprises!!!!! PLEASE email me and spill your guts...... please, you love me, I'm your friend, your confidant and you are killing me with suspence.... however, when we talk... it shall not be about politics... hehee

cougchick said...

I have a secret. Are you kidding me??? Not fair!!!!

Hillary gets on my nerves. I'm leaning toward Obama. I live in a very Republican area so even saying that causes people's eyes to flash. The timber industry is scared of Hillary and her reform.

New topic-Housecleaners. I have a housecleaner that I could say is a .....minimalist, if you know what I mean. Frustrating as Hell but at least she gets the basics. I just continue to leave notes when she forgets major things. I wonder at times if she is functionally illiterate. Anyhoo, I'd rather have some housecleaner than no housecleaner.

cougchick said...

BTW, my email is not working for some reason so I can't respond to your snarky remarks as of yet. Not to worry, it will be working soon and I will be in full snark mode by then. *Smooches*

Heather said...

OMG. O. M. G.
What is the secret?
WHAT IS THE SECRET???

Rony said...

I think my girls just brought out their daggers! Too funny. lol. We're huge Clinton supporter's. I've got a life like poster of Bill in my bedroom that I lick every night before jumping into bed. lol. But, I still love you girls....Daleea, what does momma say about hitting?! *snort*.

I'm at work and this computer has a tendency to crash...so, hold onto your reins.

Franceskasjourneyhome said...

Ok not a fan of Hillary, not a fan of Obama either!! I am very sorry that your friend is going through such a hard time, we all have been there at least once or twice and love hurts!!! As far as the root canal...piece of cake, don't worry once the lidocaine kicks in you won't feel a thing!!! As far as the housekeeper thing, you can't worry about her "Family", you are paying her for a service and she is not doing it correctly, and she won't listen to the warning, get a new one!!!

Julie said...

I'm with Special K - I call BULLSHIT on the seceret thing! If you don't want to tell then you don't call attention to it! I mean what girl can resist a secret???!??!!

I use a "cleaning service" They are a bit higher but I can call the office and let them know what I am or am not happy about and the next visit it is fixed.

Love the memory pics and the new do! I have a friend that swore he was not gay and everyone else swore he was not gay. Ummm..yeah girls his FAVORITE show was the Golden Girls and he could sing all the songs to the Little Mermaid....

redmaryjanes said...

WHAT?? I hate that, let it out girl. Give on the secret.
Here I am all getting worked up about HIV in DC and then you lay the secret out there.

Steffie B. said...

Ok.....I am cracking up....yeah I need a housekeeper....and the thought of you licking Bill....boy that just about pushed me over the edge....might have to go haul the hubs upstairs for a quickie! *snort* Root canal? I'v ehad several....no pity from me on that one....suck it up girl and get ready to grip the sides of that dental chair!

Steffie B. said...

cough up the secret.....you've been telling me something is up for over a week now....don't make me come hunt you down....

Gail said...

Sorry but not a fan of Billary being in office again, leaning toward Obama. Wondering if you are adopting again? Oh and root canals aren't bad, I've had 2. :)

Franceskasjourneyhome said...

Rony check your email later today ok!!

Love, Kristy

girl of a thousand blogs said...

Ooooh, we're in the same mood today. Come over and post on my Political Confessional. Door's open.

Cough up the secret!

Sophie's Mom said...

I've got a picture you're going to LOVE....

Danielle said...

I'll avoid discussing my dislike for Hillary. You just keep licking Bill's poster ;)

I had a root canal at the ripe old age of 21 and it wasn't that bad. The actual root canal wasn't any worse than having a cavity filled. It was waiting for the root to die that wasn't fun. Mine was worse than most, so with pain medication (gotta love that stuff) you'll be fine.

I don't watch lost although my younger sister is obsessed. I'm a Grey's fan. Do you watch Grey's Anatomy? Hope so. Best show on TV.

Glad you like the new look :)

cougchick said...

I've finally come clean. Check it out.

Tag, you're it.

jennifer said...

Ok, not so much a fan of Hillary (or Bill for that matter). Not a fan of root canals either, although I've never had one. It takes all the nerve I have to get a regular filling.

You're killing us with the secret. That is just not right!

Heather said...

If Bill can't be president again, then I'm all for Bill for First Lady! Go Hillary!

BTW- I haven't visited much since getting home from China with #2, but I love the new look!

Ouch to the root canal.

sweet-P's Mum said...

Well, I'm with you on Hillary and Obama! I personally think Bill is an asset to the presidency if H get elected. I dont care where he sticks his ding-dong noone can deny the how good things were in the Clinton Years!

I am in love with John Stewart, I would go Jewish for that boy! He rocks my world! After my dear DH that is. I love short smart men!

I go to the dentist tomorrow, valium has been prescribed! I am a wuss! I need ALL my fillings replaced, they are 27 years old! I am 37 so they had a good life, I just wish I didnt have to do them all at once!

Gald you fixed the 'loading' problem...I stopped trying to visit there for a while, and I hated that cause you so funny!

Bonnie'n'Clyde said...

Right there with ya babe, and you pegged it w/the McCain comment.

Good luck with the root canal...I hate dentists.
