Fat Tuesday, Indeed
My muffin-top wants a beer. It says that in order to stay in top muffin-top shape, that I must put back a few for it. I shall oblige.
And then, Sir Muffin-Top, I'm setting you free. If you are really mine, you'll come back to me.
God, I hope you're not really mine.

An Open Letter to the Ear Gods
Something is wrong with my ears. I've started up running again. I put those little ear buds in my ears and they constantly fall out. Throughout my run I'm adjusting them or putting them back in after they fall out. I think I have faulty ear-flappy-thingers-that-should-hold-the-ear-phones-in parts. Can you maybe give me a little zap and make them more conducive to ear-bud stabilization?
Also, while I have your attention, can you ask the Radio Station Gods to cease-and-desist with the barrage of love songs during my running hour? It makes me want to punt my little $5 FM scan radio across the street to watch it be crushed by some bunghole in an SUV. Thank you for KBCO, though, they tend to rock during said running hour.
You know, now that I think this through Ear Gods, I could probably just go buy myself a halfway-decent cheapish MP3 player [with kickass headphones] to use during my runs. Elminate you as the middle-men/women all together. Or, you could be the coolest and just make them materialize on my kitchen counter by tomorrow's run.
I'm Sooooooo Ready For Summer

I am convinced that no one in this world has more love in his heart than Hudson. He is the lovey-ist dog EVER.

Ithaca College School of Communications (my alma mater)hosted a film short contest. The catch? It had to be 30 seconds or less and be filmed on a cell phone. They're odd but interesting
Friday Five1) When does liking someone a lot become loving that person?
No idea.2) Is there a job you would do for free, and is it your current job?
No, you gotta earn a living somehow, right?3) What is one person/thing that inspired you to take action of some sort?
None.4) Though you might not believe in it, would you like fate to exist?
Don't care.5) What's the kindest thing that anyone has ever done for you?

I Love the Beach
I'm back. It was fantastic in Cabo. I can't explain how happy I am that Mom and Dad bought a condo there. Knowing that I can go back whenever money and time allows, is so comforting.

I'm Doin' It
For the first time in six years I am going on vacation. I will be gone for one glorious sun-, sand-, alcohol- and [hopefully] sleep-filled week starting tomorrow. (Mexico!)
I doubt I'll post while I'm gone - but I'll think of you all the time, wondering where you are, what you're doing, what you're thinking of, are you thinking of me? (If anyone knows that reference...bonus points.)
Kisses, sunscreen in your eye, and exposed white muffin-tops of love,
O'Donnell Rulz!These freakin' rock
. I don't celebrate V-day, but if I did, these are what I'd want.
My message to you:

I thought about my Muson
a few weeks back. I finally remembered to look it up today. Jessica and I each had one and we *loved* them. It was the coolest....you could pull those little colored plugs out and the beat would change and you could rearrange them in a different order for all types of sounds. I don't know whatever happened to them. It's probably buried in all the junk of Mom and Dad's garage somewhere.
So many people I've talked to have never heard of it. Have you?
Jane, Stop this Crazy Thing
The Pause and the Stop buttons seem to be broken on my brain. I'll just get to crazy town that much faster. :-)

For a couple of years I've been the only woman on this floor. A new company moved in across the lobby and oh my, how the state of affairs have changed in the ladies restroom. The habits of the new women have rubbed me the wrong way since day one. And they've rapidly been on the decline since then. I won't go into the explicit details, but let me tell you what pushed me over the edge today. A chick in a stall...on her cell phone....while taking a dump. Her parents must be proud.
Friday Five1. Can you dance?
Oh, God, no. But I do it anyway because it's fun.2. Who is your current crush?Matt Stone
, Jimmy Fallon
, Ryan Reynolds
, Ahmet Zappa
.3. Tell us about a dream you remember.
Last night...I was looking over a giant cliff, probably a good 100 stories up, and I slipped and was hanging off by my hands. There were lots of people standing around but no one helped me. I finally pulled myself up with my own strenth. It was super scary.4. Do you live with anyone, or do you live by yourself?
By myself. And with my puppies every two weeks for two weeks.5. When is the last time you bled from an injury?
A few weeks ago I had a stupid cut on my hand.

Today, as for the past few Thursdays, I'm all Eeyore-ish. I've consulted with others and they feel the same way. It's odd.
Side Note: Corn Nuts are, in fact, not a good pre-workout snack. Delicious, yes. Agreeable, no.
Ti forwarded this to me, and I liked it. Don't know who to credit as author:One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a Battle that goes on inside people. He said, "My son, the battle is between 2 "wolves" inside us all.
One is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, Greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false Pride, superiority, and ego.
The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, Kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith."
The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather: "Which wolf wins?"
The old Cherokee simply replied, "The one you feed."
Taken at the ESPN Zone last year on a team builder. Yeah, that's right, I bowl in flip flops.

Dear Well-Fitting Jeans,
I will find you -- I think all the trying-on is sucking my will to live -- but oh yes, I will find you. You can't hide from me forever.
P.S. You best warn your chunky flip flop friends too.
I miss my Mom. I want to hug her.
(And my Dad too, but today I'm really missing my Mom.)

I'm pretty sure I just saw someone wearing a cape in our parking lot. Maybe someone dropped something in my Crystal Light. I did watch this trailer
sent, but seriously, I think I saw someone in a cape. Either that, or a really hideous coat.
P.S. Mariah Carey makes me twitch. I want to like a lady that confident, but I just can't. Her voice is like styrofoam. Squeaky, dry, cringe-inducing chunks.

Today has not been stellar
Hence the longer "happy things" list. (I usually make those lists in an effort to alleviate the blahs. ...and when I'm actually super happy. ...and when I'm too lazy to actually write a post, and when it's been a while since I made a happy list.....you get the point.)
Today hasn't been super-bad, just ick; blah if you will.
Woke up after having a dream that I called in sick. That kinda messes with your head. :-)
My knee punched a hole in my favorite jeans, but quite honestly it's been a long time coming, so I can't say I'm surprised.
Didn't feel like coming to work and don't feel like being at work. Two co-workers went home, which makes me really really jealous. Lucky.
Missing the pups. (Hair and all.)
Want to go home. Or just anywhere but here.
And I'm tired. Sleepity doo-dah.
***whiny whiny whine. Waaaaah. ;-)***
1. Chapstick. (I love you!)
2. Onion Dip
3. Puppy Bowl
4. Next week
5. Falling asleep without a problem
6. My camera
7. Getting 4 billion loads of wash done. (Okay, 7.)
8. New sneakers!
9. Getting behind a *good* driver.
10. Funny friends
Happy Birthday, Grandma!

Ha. Ha. Fooled you. I slept 6 hours last night. Put that in your pipe and smoke it!

Hey Pibb (and Nikki)Your site
is screwed up. I need to catch up on your Tokyo life. ;-) Anyway, are you gonna go to the 10-year in June? Are you gonna be back by then?
Nikki - are you?
Friday Five 1. Any plans to watch the Super Bowl?
Yes, I'll probably watch it with some friends. 2. Friday or Saturday: Which is a better date night?
Who knows? Friday and Saturday are both great because I don't have to get up for work. Yay!3. Do you do anything special on the weekends that you don't do during the week?
Not really. I'm super-crazy boring.4. Where do you get your news from?
I watch the news when I wake up, I read news online all day, hear some on the radio and usually get some from "The Daily Show".5. Kevin, Norm, Colin, Jimmy, Tina or Amy?Jimmy
. Tina and Amy rock too, but there's no chance I can ever marry them. :-)
Donde Esta el Sleepy Sleepy?
I so could have been in bed by 9:30-10ish, but my body didn't want me to. Just got home from Amy and John's and I'm not even remotely tired and - it's 1:35am. Stupid insomnia.
