Rant

Rant....

So, last night on my way home from work I stop by the CVS right by my house to get my prescription for YAZ filled. Now, I've had this prescription for the last year and a half - it's a birth control pill, the doctor gives me a 12 month supply, but for insurance purposes I have to have it filled every month and I always have it filled at CVS. I specifically chose CVS because it's a big chain of stores and they are all over town.

First, I get to the counter and there isn't a sole waiting there. No customers in line, nobody in the waiting area - just me. Should be a piece of cake. So, I give the girl my name - twice. I give her my birthdate - twice. And then she informs me that my prescription has been transferred out. WHAT? What does that mean? I didn't transfer it anywhere. We go around and around for about five minutes, but she's just telling me the same thing over and over again - it's been transferred out. What does that mean???? Finally, she says, it's in a different CVS on the south side of town. I'm like "well, can't I get it filled here???? This is a CVS right?" Not to mention, I never moved the freaking thing anywhere. I always go to the same damn store every month. Her manager finally stepped in and showed her how to back out of the screen, do whatever they needed to do and they filled it for me. But, here's my issue. Why in the hell do I always have to go through such a big dramatic experience everytime I go to get my freakin birth control filled? And quite honestly, I want to know why in the hell I even need a prescription for birth control? Shouldn't anyone just be able to buy that stuff? It's like, I have to promise my first born child, give blood and a urine sample everytime I step in there.

Give me a break. They should be HAPPY to give that shit away. I'm not sure about this, but can't you go to the pharmacy and get a day after pill if you slip up? So, why do I need a prescription to do a little preventative maintenance? It's really effin annoying.

Of course, I sat there and waited for it to be filled. After me, an older gentlemen walked in and was denied his prescription because they need some extra form from his doctor and the doctor's office was closed for the day. He had the prescription in hand, but they wouldn't fill it until they could talk to his doctor.

And, then, another lady walked in and she was denied hers too. I can't remember what her deal was, but she had been coming to the same pharmacy and had the same doctor FOREVER and her script had run out and she needed a re-fill and she had to beg them to let her borrow two until her doctor could properly give her the re-fill. They finally caved in.

Each time though, it was like this big question and answer period where they had to ask your name twelve times, verify the birthdate about 8 times, type it in , can't find it, look again, it finally pops up - and then they are DENIED!

Like, the pharmacy's main job is to fill prescriptions. You would think they'd have it down to a science. They are always confused, losing stuff, searching for things, half of them don't speak english and it's always a big freaking ordeal.

I'm probably going to switch all my stuff over to Walgreen's and see if they are any better. They are opening one literally at the end of my street in a few weeks. I could probably walk there.

Anyway - rant over...

It's Friday bitches - and it's a 3 day weekend!!!! Holla!

Coming Soon...

I have a super crazy day ahead of me and I'm going into work way early - so this is going to be a quick post...

I was thinking about all of the exciting and fun shows I'm looking forward to in the Fall Season and here's my list...


The NEW 90210 - it's supposed to be rauncy and slutty and over the top - just the way I like it. They brought back Brenda and Kelly and even Dylan I heard. Yay! good times I can't wait!!!






Entourage - Coming back very soon - sometime in Septemer. I can't wait! I love those guys.

The Office!!!!!!! - Season Premier is September 24th I believe and it'll be a full hour. It's my favorite show on T.V. right now.

Big Love - I have no idea when it's coming back on but I love it.





Friday night lights is definitely coming back on - I just read an article and I'm psyched. I wasn't even sure if it was returning but it definitely is.




Dancing with the Stars - of course! They are doing a 3 night season premiere starting September 21st - they have an awesome lineup this time.

The New Adventures of Old Christine - I love me some Elaine from Seinfeld and I can't wait for her to return.





Medium - this show rocks!!!!!! I love it!

CSI - I'm sad that Warrick is off the show, but I'm sure they'll replace him with someone even better - most likely someone who isn't a drug addict. I also heard that Grissom is leaving - but he'll do some returning guest spots.

I'm sure I'm missing some - what are you guys looking forward to??????

My new obsession

So, I went to Red Rock Casino on Sunday to see a movie with this guy. But, I got there a little early, so I parked in the garage up on the 4th floor and I got on the elevator. The elevator stopped on the 3rd floor and this guy hopped on and he held the door open and said "I have some other people coming" and I said "okay, no problem". So, he holds the door for a few seconds and then a lady gets in and younger boy. My assumption was that this was probably his wife and son. So, we get down to the casino level and the doors open and I hop off. I look at my watch and I have some extra time, so I head over to a slot machine and sit down and pull a $20 bill out of my purse. The next thing I know, this guy (from the elevator) comes up behind me and says "miss, you are very beautiful - I was wondering if you would let me take you out some time".

Um?? What? Weren't you just with your wife and kid? I glanced around and didn't see them anywhere, I guess he told them to go ahead and he'd catch up with them and then he doubled back around to ask em out real quick. Sleazy!! I just said "no thank you, I have a boyfriend" and he said "well, he's a lucky guy". And that was that.

Funny huh??

I have a new obsession and her name is Lisa Nova. Has anyone ever heard of her? I found her because yesterday Perez Hilton posted a clip of a You Tube video she made making fun of The Hills and I thought it was pretty funny. So, I went to her You Tube page and started watching all of her clips - she's pretty good. She does impressions of famous celebrities and she started off as just like a chick that likes videos, but she totally blew up and she got signed to MAD TV! How effin cool is that? So, here are a few of my favorite videos that she made...


This is my absolute favorite one - watch this one - it's too funny...





This is Lisa Nova does P Diddy - she's pretty spot on with this one...





And this is a beauty for all of you Twitter whores...

Breaking News!!!!

For those of you following along (most of you probably don't care) - but the official list for Dancing with the Stars came out and they took Mark McGrath off and replaced him with Rocco DiSpirito. I believe Rocco is a chef. I'll do a write up with pictures later.

But, the other big news that came out today is regarding American Idol. They added a fourth judge!!!!

Her name is Kara DioGuardi and this is a picture of her...






So, of course Paula Abdul was on some morning show today talking about the new judge and she was slurring away like usual. Does she just not even give a fuck??? Is she so fucked up that she doesn't notice??? Or, does she just have so much money that she does not care?? I mean, I was thinking they are probably bringing this new girl in to bring some actual content to the show since Paula is always fucked up and doesn't have much input. And maybe, they are edging Paula right out of the show. Maybe they are grooming this new chick to take over Paula's spot.

Yeah right - who am I kidding? They are keeping Paula around and they are feeding her lortab, vicodan and percocet like there is no tomorrow - she makes for good entertainment!!!!

Finally!!

I am almost embarassed to admit this, but I just finally saw The Dark Knight today. Good ass movie! I can't believe it took me so long to go see it - but I just hated the thought of sitting throught a freaking 3 hour movie. Even though I knew it would be awesome, I'm not a big fan of sitting still for such a long period of time. I ended up seeing it with this guy I met on my bowling league. He had been asking me out for a while and I finally caved in and went out with him. It was a good time and then we went over to Cabo which is a Mexican Restaurant at the Red Rock for dinner.






Oh and just for the record - I was never much of a Christian Bale fan until I watched the movie - wow - he's a hottie. He looked really good in The Dark Knight and another thing that really hit me hard was that we lost an amazingly talented actor in Heath Ledger. He was amazing in the role of the Joker and it was pretty sad to watch him on the big screen and realize it'll most likely be the last time I ever see him - unless I watch old movies or whatever. Also, I think he deserves an Oscar for his role - he was fucking awesome.


Saturday was a big night because my girl Hilary was celebrating 6 years clean. It was a pretty big deal and I was really happy for her. I made her a little gift bag and put a few meaningful gifts in it. Like, I bought some frames and put some pictures in them and I got her a really nice card and she loves starbucks so I got her a gift card from there. I never used to be much of a gift giver and I don't always have a lot of money to buy really fancy things, but she's a really special person in my life and it was fun shopping for her. I even teared up at the meeting when she was sharing. Don't tell anyone though - I wouldn't anyone to think I'm a softie. ha ha

A few pictures from last night...

Me and Hilary...




Lisa and Angela...



Doug, me and Nick



Most Importantly - I called the courthouse and I don't have to report for Jury Duty tomorrow. I am so happy because I found out that my company does not pay us for jury duty. What kind of bullshit is that???? It's annoying!!!! I would have had to take a personal day for tomorrow and then I would have had to try like hell not to get placed on a jury. So, I'm good for now.

Another weekend gone and another monday for me to dread - ugh - at least we have a three day weekend to look forward to!!!!

Season 7 Revealed!!

We now interrupt our regulary scheduled programming to announce the Season 7 Cast of Dancing with the Stars straight from Gossip Sauce - remember - this is not confirmed yet - the actual announcement will be made Monday...

Kim Kardashian - we heard this one a million times - we all know she's famous for a sex tape and she's on the reality show "Keeping up with the Kardashians". I'm thinking she'll be kicked off VERY early on.

Lance Bass - use to be in N'Snyc and recently came out as being gay.

Jeff Ross - King of the roast. Most recently he hosted the Bob Saget roast.

Cloris Leachman - Obviously she's the token old chick (82 years old) and she also took part in the Bog Saget roast.

Mark McGrath - used to be in the band "Sugar Ray" and now he's a host on Extra.

Brooke Burke - HOTTIE!!!! That's all we really need to know about her.

Susan Lucci - Professional soap star. Best known for not winning any daytime Emmys even though she was nominated for a ton. I think she finally one something eventually, but it took forever.

Toni Braxton - Hot singer chick. Recently cancelled all of her Las Vegas Shows due to health issues.

Ted Mcginley - Remember him?????? He was the neighbor married to Marci on the Married with the Children. I think he was on the Love Boat and possibly even Three's Company. I bet he still looks the same today as he did back then.

Warren Sapp - Football Player Guy

Misty May Treanor - U.S. Beach Volleyball Olympian Chick - as far as I know, she's still over in Beijing right now - Go Team USA!!

Maurice Green - U.S. Track and Field Star

Cody Linley - Good Lord - he's 18 years old and he plays Miley Cyrus' boyfriend on The Hanna Montana Show. I guess he'll be getting the age 5 - 19 demographic.


And there you have it!!

Before and After

It's Friday and I thought I'd give kudos to amazing celebs that went from looking awesome, to looking like shit and back to looking fantastic once again.

Let's start with my favorite girl Britney - she's been through a rough few years, and I couldn't be happier to see her getting her shit together - rumor has it that she'll be a major part of the MTV Video Music Awards again this year and this time I have faith in her. She's really making a huge comeback and I am so happy!!!!

Back in the day when she was new on the scene...



Losing her "virginity look" and taking more risks and looking amazing...



Going down down down...



Totally losing it...



And now look at her - pure perfection...




She even looks happy to her with her kids - yay!




Another one that has her ups and downs - Janet Jackson...

Back in the day...




And then she went WAY downhill - this must have been one of her lowest points...



And this picture just came out today - she's coming out with a lingerie line and look at her amazingness...




Unbelievable!!!!

Another one that has her major ups and downs - Nicole Ritchie...

Back in the day - she was perfectly cute and a little funky - I was digging it...



And then apparently she felt this overwelming need to lose weight and this was the result...




Super scary and horribly unhealthy - she is literally knocking on death's door...



And now look at her - pregancy and mother hood does the body good...



There's a million more celebs that I could do before and afters for - but it's time to hit the sack - Happy FRIDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Annoying Things

I'm totally at a loss today. So, I thought I'd write about the five biggest things that annoy me. They might not be the most annoying things overall because let's me honest, a lot of things annoy me, but right now they are the five biggest things on my mind today...

5. People who talk a whole lot of shit from the comfort of their own homes, but don't have the balls to show themselves. It's super easy to talk shit and then hide.

4. Traffic that piles up and then when you pass what you think is going to be some huge accident, there is nothing!! Where the hell did all of that traffic come from in the first place? It's all backed up and then all of a sudden it frees up.

3. Playing in a tournament for 3 hours only to go out on the bubble right before making the money.


2. People who make a commitment to do something and then they don't follow through, thus letting down a handful of other people who were counting on them.

and the most annoying thing in my life right now is...

1. This stupid guy I work with. He comes up to my desk and actually picks through the pile of stuff on my desk to find his stuff. He will literally go through my stuff, poke around, look at what's on top and what's below and try to determine I guess how long it's going to take me to get to HIS stuff. Either way - it's so effin rude to go through someone's stuff. I would NEVER do that to anyone else.

I even found out that last night when I left, he started going through my stuff and the girl that sits next to me told him to get away from my desk and to stop looking through my stuff. Oh my god! It's so annoying. I cannot stand him. He's so creepy.

Where are you brody??

So, back when I put this bowling team together, I specifically told the team that there were no subs allowed the last two weeks. NO subs allowed! I asked everyone if they could make it the last two weeks and they said that it would be no problem. The last two weeks are the most important because they are the positioning rounds. This means that the first and second place teams will play each other to determine who gets first place. And of course, the third and fourth place teams will play to determine who gets third place, etc.

So, what happens yesteday?? I get an e-mail from Courtney around noon stating that she won't be able to make it to bowling last night. She is VERY aware that we cannot get a sub and that the entire team needs to be there. She had the lamest excuse too. She said that her lawyer needed to meet with her at 5:45 p.m. Yeah right! Am I a moron? I've dealt with many many lawyers in my day and guess what? They don't work past 5 p.m. It's not like she's on trial for something. She's just going through a divorce and her lawyer supposedly wanted to talk to her about their plan of attack. Oh really?? At 5:45 p.m. Right! I'm not stupid. She's the kind of girl that can't be alone for more than a day. So, as soon as her husband left her, she started fucking one of the guys at work and as soon as he left her and went back to his wife, she started fucking another guy immediately. She has been up his ass since day one and obviously something better came up, so she chose to let down the whole team and run off to play with the guy du jour.

She literally took money right out of our pockets because we were VERY close to moving up a slot, and if we could have played last night, we probably could have beaten the other team and then we would have gotten more money back at the end of the season. But, you know what? It's not even the money thing that bothers me. It's the lack of loyalty, it's the irresponsibility, it's the immaturity and the self-centerdnesss that just drives me nuts. She left the whole team down and I'm so done with her.

I cannot stand people who make a commitment and then don't follow through with it. And then they tell ridiculous lies to try to cover it up. This woman is 30 years old for christ sakes. I expected more from her.

But, see, that's what I get for putting expectations on people. Inevitably when we put expectations on people, we end up hurt. I'll just chalk this one up to another lesson learned.

--------------------------------------------

Okay, and touching on the Hills premiere. Um - Lo is still a bitch. She's obviously extremely jealouse of Audrina. I totally can't stand her. Spencer is an ass - he treated Heidi's sister horribly. And, what's with that horrible stubbly blonde growth on his chin? He needs to lose the lame ass beard (if that's what you want to call it). He's a total tool.

And where was the best part of the show? Bring Back Brody Jenner! Damn - if I don't have some eye candy, what's the point?????

Survivor Football Pool

To all of my readers - check this out....

My roommmate put together a fantasy football type league called Survivor Football! I joined, my parents joined, my uncle joined and the more the merrier - so please click on the link for details. The cost is a measly $20 and we'd love to get tons of people to join.




The quick synopsis is that you pick one team per week to win. If that team wins, you go onto the next week and pick another team. The only catch is that you can only pick each team once. So, if you pick the New England Patriots the first week to win, you can never pick New England again. The last person standing wins all of the money!!!

So, head on over and sign up!!!!!

I didn't watch the Hills last night because I went to sleep at 9 p.m. Lame - I know! I'll definitely watch it tonight when I get home from bowling.

--------------------------------------------------------------------

This is so wrong on so many levels. I heard this news story this morning on the radio and I was beside myself. I can't believe this stupid cop wouldn't let them go - he totally killed this dog...


SAN MARCOS, Texas -- In the middle of the night, a young couple watched in horror as their beloved pet tittered between life and death.

Missy laid across Krystal Hernandez's lap as Michael Gonzalez raced to the New Braunfels Veterinarian Clinic. The teacup poodle's airway was blocked -– she was choking on food.

The couple zoomed past Officer Paul Stephens allegedly at a clip of 95 miles per hour in a 70 mph-zone.

Stephens initiated a routine traffic stop. Gonzalez pulled over. Immediately, Stephens asked the driver to move to the end of the overpass.

The driver was frantic, he was yelling "my dog is dying - we need to get her to an emergency room". He begged the cop to let him go.

"This is when he lectured (Gonzalez) on how he was driving and said 'it's just a dog, you can get another one,' " Williams said. "So that only inflamed the situation and made it worse. You can't talk to people that way when their world is coming down around them."

"They (the couple) were just trying to deal with that emergency and doing everything they thought they should do to save that dog -- the officer should have recognized that and worked to help them in that emergency."

Later that day Gonzalez filed a complaint against Stephens, alleging the officers' conferencing had wasted valuable time in saving the dog's life.

He got off with a slap on the wrist and he has to attend counseling! What bullshit!!

-----------------------------------------------------------

Well - I gotta run - have a good day!

Can't think of a title

Another weekend bites the dust...

It was a pretty good one though. No complaints here. I actually spent a lot of time with my friend Hilary. She didn't have her boys this weekend and her fiancee' was out of town - so it was a rare weekend for her since she was totally alone. I did zumba Saturday morning at the gym and after class this girl came up to me and asked me if I'm a dancer. I thought that was sweet. I wasn't sure if she was asking me if I'm a stripper and maybe I should have been offended, but I wasn't :) She said that she watches me during the class and if she gets lost she follows me.
Right now I only take the zumba class on Saturday morning, but I'm going to rearrange my meeting schedule and start taking zumba a few times during the week. I mean - I might as well - it's the one thing I love doing at the gym - it is fun, makes me sweat, puts me in a good mood and that one hour flies by. It's so much better than the boring ass treadmill and the elliptical machines.

A friend of mine teaches Bikram Yoga and she's been trying to get me to do it but I'm very leary. Bikram Yoga is taught in a hot room - I think it's like 120 degrees in the room and it'sa 90 minute class where you do yoga and sweat your ass off. I've heard that a lot of people puke the first time they do it. But, I've seen the most amazing results on those who stick with it. Literally my friend Sue went from a size 10 down to a 5 in just like 2 or 3 months. It's truly amazing. Well, anyway, Hilary and I are going to try it next weekend so I'll let you guys know. Have any of you ever tried bikram?

Saturday night after the meeting I went to Red Robin with a bunch of people and it was really frustrating. First of all, we go there almost every Saturday night. They totally know us and we bring them a lot of business. So, the girl that always waits on us had a total attitude. She was in a shitty mood and I guess she was tired, but whatever. I used to wait tables and it's like being on stage almost. You have to go in there with a good attitude, you have to check your ego at the door and you have to be nice even when you don't feel like it. Unless of course, you don't want to make any money and then by all means, go ahead and be a bitch.

So, she took forever to get us drinks, I wanted to order and that took forever, she finally takes our order and puts it in. About 15 minutes later she comes out and says they are out of shrimp, which is of course what I ordered. Um, why in the hell did it take her 15 minutes to tell me that? So, now I'm really annoyed. I just order a bowl of chili. The food finally comes out and my chili looks basically like someone threw up in it. I made the craziest face and was like "what the hell is this?" and she says "oh, well it was sitting back there a while so we threw it in the microwave. It'll look better if you just stir it." I was like "take this back - I don't want anything - this is disgusting". What the fuck? Are you kidding me? It was sitting back there a while so we threw it in the microwave? Why would you even tell somebody that? Anyway, so that was annoying. I came home and ate ice cream for dinner at 11 p.m. at night. Very good for the diet.

I snapped a few photos last night at Red Robin...

Me and Hilary...



Doug, Owen and Robert...



My other friend Hilary and Steve...




---------------------------------------------------------------------

Congratulations to Ellen and Portia - they tied the knot this weekend in a very intimate ceremony Saturday night. Only 20 guests were in attendance and I think it's so sweet. I love Ellen - I think she is hysterical and Portia looked like a princess...



Good for them!!!

------------------------------------------------------------------

Does anyone know why tomorrow (Monday) night is so significant? Anyone Anyone?

Well - make sure to plant your butt on the couch or set your TIVO for Monday night because it's the season premier of the one, the only, the fakest "reality' show on T.V. that we can't get enough of - THE HILLS!!!!!!



Does everyone else hate Lo as much as I do? She is seriously one of the most annoying people on T.V. I know that the Hills is terribly scripted, obviously fake and I'm probably way too old to be watching it, but I can't help it. I'm hooked.




Has anyone caught the new series "The Cleaner" that comes on A&E? It's about a recovering addict (Benjamin Bratt) who uses unconvential ways to get people off the streets and away from the drugs. The roomie and I have been watching it and we really like it. So far they only came out with like 3 episodes for the summer, but I guess people liked it because a new one will be on T.V. Tuesday night. I'm looking forward to it.

Thursday, August 14, 2008

UGH...

I am so frustrated right now. I played in the Riverchasers tourney for almost 3 hours and then I went out in 4th place on the bubble - it totally sucked ass! Why in the hell does a tourney with 21 people only play 3 places? I think that's fucking bullshit.

Whatever - tomorrow is Friday and I'm psyched.

Question - I really want to change my blog over the weekend and I want to use a free template, but not the lame blogger ones. I want a cute one. Does anyone have any suggestions of good template sites I can check out?

Lemme know!!!!!!

Happy Friday!!!!!

My Fall Looks

It ocurred to me today that Labor Day is swiftly approaching. Once Labor Day hits we can look forward to cooler weather, shorter days, Labor Day sales and of course Fall clothes shopping with the girls.

I love love love shopping for Fall clothes. Summer is just so hot here and you really can't be all the creative when it's 120 degrees outside.

I thought I'd share some of the looks I'm loving for the Fall Season...

I took this image directly from the Nordstrom website.



What I like about it is that it's perfect for work, but you can also break the pieces apart to create other outfits. I love the blazer because I work in an office that is way too cold and I have to bring a jacket to work everyday - even in the summer.

I also took this outfit from the Nordstrom website. Again, it's perfect for work, but you can also dress it up with fancy heels and nice jewelry to turn it into the perfect "date" ensemble.



The top is a Kenneth Cole belted sweater and the pants are a simple black from the Kenneth Cole collection as well.

I've always been a big fan of trench coats. I just love them - but they aren't always the most functional pieces of clothing because they aren't warm enough to wear in the middle of winter, but they are perfect for Fall and Spring.

Bebe came out with a really cute and updated version of the trench...



I love the ruffles! So cute!

With Fall quickly approaching it's time to pull out the tight jeans and buy some new fluffy ski looking boots.

These are from Juicy and I love them...



Not to mention, they are so comfortable.

I'm also a big fan of mixing things up. I don't wear just black or just brown - I like to let my personality show in my shoes. I thought these boots were simply adorable - probably not very comfortable - but whatever...



I love the heels on these bad boys and I love that they are two toned.

Speaking of heels - I found these on the Marciano website and I had to force myself not to splurge on them - I absolutely adore these...



I've always been a fan of Guess Jeans and I still buy a lot of cute clothes in the Guess Store. They have come a long way...



My favorite thing about these jeans is how they are a little lighter up top and then they gradually get darker towards the bottome - love that!

And of course, I couldn't finish this post without pointing out my favorite new Coach purse for the Fall....



Enjoy!!

Half way through

Happy Hump Day! We've made it through the toughest part of the week - it should be smooth sailing from here right?

Last night was the last night for our normal team bowling - the next two weeks are for the division playoffs and then we are done. This summer sure flew by. Oh, and did I mention that we won two games last night?! We sure did! Who knows - it's very possible that we will get 2nd to last place instead of last place.

I'm playing in the mookie tonight - it should be good times! I haven't played in many blogger games in a while and I'm definitely due. Not to mention, I'm on a winning streak so I should try to keep it going.

Hope to see you all there tonight :)

Another Loser with a Book



That loser, Sam Lufti is coming out with a book about Brit Brit. Part of me wants to boycott that damn thing because I don't want to put any more money in that fucker's pocket - he used the hell out of Britney - but part of me is dying to read all about what Britney was doing when she was loaded out of her mind.

I mean check this out - “Sam said he once dragged Britney out of cocaine party,” says a source. “She was doing so many lines, she didn’t even know where she was. She was stripping in the living room while doing lines with three guys who had sex on their minds.

Who among us hasn't done a little too much blow, lost track of where we were and got naked in the living room in front of random guys?? Just another normal weekend for most of us right? ha ha

“Sam also said that after Britney went to court for driving without a license and couldn’t drive her children around anymore, she went into a rage,” the source continues. “She broke almost every piece of glass in her home and said she wanted to cut herself.”

Well, I never lost any kids, but I've definitely gone into a few blind rages in my day and well, whatever, it's not pretty, so who am I to judge?? I sometimes think I'm more rageful when I'm sober. At least when I'm effed up I can just stuff the feelings. No need for anger when I can just bury it right? Most of my anger comes out when I have no place to hide those yucky feelings.

Anyway, I went to the business meeting for my homegroup on Friday night and I found out some interesting tidbits. I had no idea that for the last few years in a row, our Southern Nevada N.A. (las vegas) convention has lost money. We still owe the Riviera money from last year's convention and if we don't pay up soon, we aren't going to have a convention this year. I had no idea that the money was being so poorly managed. I'm very tempted to join the convention committee and try to help out. The problem is that we have some people in charge that have always been in charge, they don't want to change anything, even if it's for the better. You know how some people are like "well, this is how it's always been" and they just stick to that strategy even when it's clearly not working? A few younger people actually ran for the positions, but they didn't win. They are on the committee, but they aren't holding any positions. So, anyway, it's a big problem that needs to be addressed.


I just won another sit and go. I'm riding the wave as long as possible!!

I had dinner at the Olive Garden tonight after the meeting with my girls Hilary, Hilary and Rondie. It was so damn good. I love that place. Hilary just had a house built and she moved in last week, my sponsor (Lisa) moved into a new place over the weekend and Rondie is closing on her new house tomorrow! DAYUMM! I think right now is the a great time to buy. I need to do some house hunting. Especially with all of the foreclosures here in Vegas.


Me, Lisa and Hilary...

Sunday Ramblings

I hate to write this for fear of jinxing myself, but I've been totally kicking ass playing online lately. I usually play on Saturday and Sundays and most of the time I just play in one or two table sit and go's and somehow I've just been winning a lot! I have my Full Tilt account up to like $520.00 - that's the most it's ever been!! Here's the best part - I have never put any money into that account. I got my money from ads and stuff. However, since I've never added money to the account, I've also never been able to cash out either. I think you have to add money before you can cash anything out. I'll have to check into it.

As I'm sitting here blogging, I logged into two more games and I won them both. This one was two tables - $72 win for me!



Anyway, I went to Borders Bookstore today to buy The Waiter's book...



They didn't have it yet! That sucked. I guess I will just order it online at Amazon or something. He's getting great reviews so I'm really looking forward to reading it. He's an awesome writer.

I ended up buying Chelsea Handler's new book - "Are you there vodka? It's Me Chelsea". She is super funny and I know her book is going to rock.



I stayed away from the mall which was a good thing, but I stopped in Marshall's next to the bookstore just for the hell of it and I was surprised to see Lucky Jeans, Jessica Simpson shoes, Juicy sweatsuits and a slew of other good stuff - reasonably priced. I even saw an Ipod Home Stereo for like $40.00. I actually want to go back and get that. It was a good deal. I usually don't have the patience to look through all of those racks usually, but I could see that they had some good bargains in there today. I actually purchased these...




I'll be wearing them tomorrow :)

Crazy weekend for celebrities and death.

Saturday morning we found out that Comedian Bernie Mac died in the hospital from complications with pneumonia. Very sad. I loved him in the Kings of Comedy and he was a very funny guy. He'll be missed.

Saturday night I read about Carey Hart's brother dying on the race track early Saturday - he was only 21 years old.

And then this morning I woke up to find that Isaac Hayes died. Not very surpising considering the last time I heard him he was doing an interview on the Adam Corolla show (a few months ago) and he was blitzed out of his mind. He was completely effed up, he wasn't making any sense and they couldn't even understand him. It was insane. They've actually been using the drops from that interview for the last few months on Adam's show because they are so damn funny. Anyway, not a good weekend for deaths.
