A list of crap about me for YOU to read....Beware.


I think about once a month I feel the bloggy blues. I search for things to write. A zillion things inspire a topic but when I attempt to write it doesn't quite flow out as nicely as I'd like.

So I think I'll gladly do this meme I've been tagged to do. (ahem, can someone tell me what the hell meme stands for? I'm slightly blog stupid-o.)

Thank you to my twinkie The RaMbLeR (long story, but we have the same blog name and found each other a while back and LOVEEEE like long lost sisters)

and to Olive Street Studios ( I just love the word Olive since I saw it in a movie with Diane Keaton and dang it what's her name...The Other Sister...anyway they say Olive Juice if your saying I love you across a room to someone and it looks more like I love you. Weird, but hey, that's me.)

And off we go.

8 Things I'm looking forward to.

1. My fat ass going away.
2. My post pregnant stomach going away. (Buh bye)
3. My rubber tire hips going away.
4. The double chin that has made a home under my face only when I take pictures.
5. The day I can have a cheeseburger and not freak out it's gonna bring the weight back on.
6. When I can buy a shirt with buttons and not worry my boobies will pop them off. (some may find this attractive, but I'll go with depressing)
7. When I can put jeans on and they zip up without me sucking in.
8. When I can come back to this list and say. Done, done, done, done, done, done, done AND DONE!

8 things I did yesterday.

1. Woke up at 10 am.
2. Couldn't believe that my husband cooked breakfast for himself and Lil Rambler. (What?)
3. Took my kid to the tot park.
4. Read a book under a tree while she played.
5. Squeezed my fat butte on the slide with her. (And actually went down)
6. Thought it would be good to put back in my contacts after 3 days of eye glass wearing (hate it, but I was sick and my eyes were pissed and wanted them OUT)
7. Couldn't figure out why my new contact in my right eye kept hurting.
8. Didn't realize until today that apparently I didn't see the slit right in the middle of the lens. DAMN all to expensive Holy Contact hell! That was $10 for one contact down the hole. Ugh.

8 things I wish I could do

1. Own a home in the near future rather then the far future.
2. More time with my Lil Rambler.
3. A job that paid me what I'm worth.
4. Some writing conglomerate CEO to see my blog and say they want to make some of my posts into a book. (HA)
5. Buy a Wii Fit. I suppose a Wii first would make more sense.
6. A marathon. Or at least one of those walks.
7. Not be so insecure sometimes.
8. Confront my fathers girlfriend and ask why it was the way it was. (Heavy, I know.)

8 shows I watch

1. American Idol. (of course you'd know this if you've been reading me back when AI started. Right Sticky?)
2. The Mentalist.
3. The Office. (I have mad crush love for Jim)
4. 30 Rock (I'm fascinated with Alec Baldwins character, Jack. Why? It is what it is. And Tina Fey...she ROCKS.)
5. The Life of Old Christine. (Julia Dreyfuss makes me laugh sooooo funny hard)
6. Cold Case. (I like the solving of old cases.)
7. Wow Wow Wubzy (my kids show...that we watch ALLLLLL the TIMEEEE)
8. How I met your Mother. (Doogie Rules)

8 people to tag....


1. Muppet Soul
2. Anti-Supermom
3. Definitely Debilyn
4. For My Four
5. Girl in the Glasses.
6. Housewife Savant
7. I come to the Garden
8. In my mind it's always Funny.


Whew...who ever made this one up...Geesh, couldn't it have been a teeny bit shorter?

Here's to another week.

P.S. I'm down a total of 5 pounds now. Woot Woot.

30 ramblings of your own:

OliveStreetStudio said...

NNIICCCCEEEEE that you did the TAG! I am bummed Anoop is gone from AI. GREAT news on the lbs! I agree with the other commentor - you will be able to say DONE DONE and DONE sooner than you think!

Happy Monday!!

kel said...

Yay! I am doing this meme this week! thanks!

and don't get a wii fit... they are mean. (they made my avatar a fat ass and I was very insulted.)

hotpants™ said...

I can't believe AI is almost over.

I love The Mentalist. I love Simon Baker too.

mo.stoneskin said...

As I scrolled down I thought I read that you have a 'rubber chin'.

"Hooray," I exalted, "I'm not the only one!'

K said...

I definitley get the bloggy blues every so often.

Fun list.

The Blonde Duck said...

"3. A job that paid me what I'm worth.
4. Some writing conglomerate CEO to see my blog and say they want to make some of my posts into a book."

Me too!

Housewife Savant said...

Olive Juice. We say Olive Juice. I love that movie.

Thanks for the tag love.

I'm hoping to be Inspired with the Mother of All Ideas any moment now. I'll credit you.

You rose to the occasion nicely.

I'll probably need Cialis to get a post up.

Muppet Soul said...

WTF does meme stand for?

Maybe nobody knows and the one who started it is having a good laugh.

Lookie, there's my name! I'm famous!

will do - haven't done one in awhile.

Heather, aka Jake's Mommy said...

WOW!! You intend on half of your body disappearing!! How are you doing that? I MUST KNOW the secret!!

Becky said...

Congrats on the 5 lbs. lost -- way to go! I feel like I could've easily written the "8 things I look forward to" list for myself, only I didn't even have a baby.

Juls said...

Ok, I had it on another post.. (the one from Kalei) so here it is.. This goes above the things you want to scroll

< center>< div class="textwidget">< marquee direction="up" width="200" onmouseover="this.stop()" scrollamount="5" onmouseout="this.start()" height="400" align="center">

_______________
and you put the code that I put in the previous comment under everything you want to scroll. Just take out the spaces. Hope that helps!

Krissy said...

Windi said...

Congrats on your 5 pounds gone!!! Thanks for visiting my blog!! Hope your having a great night, Monday is almost over! Yay!

Linda Hughes said...

Glad to hear about the five pounds and love your lists. I think, but cannot confirm that meme refers to "me, me" as in all about me lists? Could be, no? But then again maybe not!

Shawn said...

YAY for your 5 pounds gone---you go!

I would be estatic if I could ever drop 5 pounds---and would be the happiest woman alive if I could lose 10!!!

I have tried everything!! UGH!

Liked reading your 8's.

Saskia said...

5 pounds lighter is fantastic news!! Keep up the great work!

Saskia x

PS I do that with my contacts all the time...

Juls said...

I thought that my directions were a little vague. No problem, how about if I do a post about how to get it this afternoon w/ pictures and everything.... because I'm a visual person, when I need instructions...and that might be more helpful. So I'll come back and tell you when I've got it going .... or you can e-mail me, and I'll do it for you. But, if you're like me you want to know how yourself. :)

Controlling My Chaos said...

Now THAT was a fun tag.

Fiauna said...

Great lists. Thanks for tagging me. I've always wanted to do this.

Down 5 lbs!!! Good job!

Martha said...

Yippee for the 5 lbs, You go, Girlfriend!!
I love the Mentalist, the lead in the show, Oooooh, BABY!

Janna Bee said...

Yay for you and 5 lbs! You are doing so much better than me.

Aubrey said...

5 pounds if frickin' awesome!!! Here's to the next 5!

There are some days it feels SO good to wear my glasses instead of contacts!

Did you catch the new Wubbzy today with Beyonce? LOL I did. Lucky me.

Vivienne said...

Coming over from Housewife Savant. Good list. I once had the Wow Wow Wubzy theme song in my head... For about two days. It is only with pharmaceutical assistance that I kept from sticking sharpened pencils into my ears.

Brittany said...

I don't know what the hell "meme" means either! Now I don't feel so lame!

Congrats on the 5 pounds!!!

Also, I have a friendship award for you on my blog.
I have nominated you because you are always so thoughtful and friendly when you comment!

That can keep you busy until your bloggers block goes away! :)

Anti-Supermom said...

You blog is a hog :)

Just teasing, but it always freezes u my computer for a few minutes - I can't figure it out.

I know I'm tagged - (thank you very much) but I haven't had time. Any time I've previously been tagged, I've had to put my Anti-Supermom spin on it.

We'll see.

Great job on 5lbs. BTW.
