This Warms My Heart…

Not only did 2 of the sweetest and most handsome bloggers in the world get married recently, Ellen Degeneres  & Portia de Rossi did as well.  But before I go on, I just wanted to send my Congrats to the happy couple, Mark & Eiain .  May all of your dreams come true.  Keep each other safe and happy and love one another eternally.  I love you both!

I was watching Ellen yesterday and she shared video of their day.  It was so beautiful.

My Apologies

This goes out to my blogger buddies.  I am very sorry I have not been commenting, replying, etc.  I am in the middle of working on my Vegas post and struggling to do so.  I seem to be having an off time/day/week/month.  And for that, I apologize.

I am excited to dig into my bag and binders of notes I recovered from my parents and share some of my silly teenage years of loving and crushing on a multitude of boys.  I was a geek in school, so my crushes were just that.  Crushes.  So you’ll have to bear with me and my life as a dullard.

So once I get my arse in gear and finish my Vegas post, I will get on the note reading and reporting as well as hop on your blogs and comment.

R.I.P. George

Sad day in our house today.  Lucas’s fish, George died.  We had a very emotional flushing ceremony.  I was holding up just fine until Lucas cried after I told him that we had to flush George so he can be with all the other fish in fish heaven.  He asked if he could do the flushing, then cried some more.  It was cute and sad all the same.  I’m sure a new fish will enter our household in the near future, once Lucas is ready.

R.I.P. George.  You will be missed!

Back Home

Hello everyone in blogger world!  

For those of you who care, I have returned home safe and sound from Sin City.  

Results from the tournament… We played, we lost, we had a BLAST!!!  We all wanted to make it to the money round, but that never happened.  Next time.

Can’t say that I committed any real sins, but I did cave to an old, bad habit.  I SMOKED WHILE I GAMBLED!  Oh the horror!  I quit smoking cold turkey back in 2003 when we decided to start a family.  I smoked for 17 years, however was never addicted.  To me, it was more of a really bad habit.  It partnered well with my coffee, computer time, hanging out with friends, reading, etc…  I know, some would argue that I was in fact addicted, blah blah blah… But I disagree.  I really had no issue with quitting.  I guess I would classify myself as a very casual smoker.  I smoked a whole pack while in Vegas for the week and haven’t looked back.  I suppose it fits well with the phrase, “Whatever happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas” However this time around it went to the border. (I still had some left and didn’t want to bring them home, so I finished my last one at the U.S. border!)

I want to give a special thanks to my PPH Cousin who guest blogged while I was away.  THANKS PPH!!!  I didn’t have the chance to blog anything before I left and I think what she wrote up was perfect!

I have yet to upload my pictures and go through them, however, that will be my task for tonight.  I didn’t go overboard with the camera in Vegas as it was too bloody hot to walk the strip, etc.  108℉/42℃ was the hottest day while there.  Other days were around the 102℉/40℃ range.  With the blistering wind that felt like an open oven right in your face. EWWWWW!  Besides, I took a whack of Vegas shots the last 2 times I was there.  There is only so many pictures one can take of the same thing, right?  This time, there are a bunch of odds and ends and shots from the drive home.  I will also blog about some of the adventures with the drive within the next week or so.  Right now, I am trying to get back into the groove of things.

I’m glad I’m home.

Vegas, Baby…!!!!!

I thought it would be fun to hijack my cousin’s blog, as she is away from the world of the Internet.  I’m so clever. 

Where o’ where is that gem of a blogger we know to be, Cheeky, you ask??  Well, she’s in Vegas, Baby!!!  That’s right, for the third time, her billiards team (is that what they are called?) have made their way to compete in a Las Vegas pool tourney!!  Congrats to them!!  Now, if I actually knew anything about pool, I would be able to come off as a wise little muffin who would have all the details (though I do know she is a part of the Canadian Pool Players Association), but sadly, such is not me.  The only time I even think about playing pool is when a ton of margaritas have made their way into my system, and then, I’m totally down with it and it suddenly looks like a lot of fun to put those colorful balls into holes.

Unlike me, Jenn is a great pool player.  A pool shark, even…!!!  She really enjoys the sport and has a kick-ass time playing it.  I even think playing pool makes her tingle.  I’m just saying.

Jenn’s team made their way into the finals 2004, 2006 and now 2008.  Gotta love a trend. 

Cheeky, I say to you ~ have a wonderful time in Vegas.  I’m sorry to know that you will be sweating your pool playing ass off as the Vegas temps reach a number that I personally find offensive, but hopefully the halls have the smarts to crank up the air conditioning, if not to only keep the players from melting onto their floor (so messy), but to also provide some entertainment, so between sets, y’all can see whose nipples play up to the cold the best.  I’m personally banking on Brad’s.

Need To Pee Your Pants?

This has to be one of the BEST videos I have ever seen in a long time.  If you are in need of cheering up, having a bad day or just need a chuckle?

Bust out the diapers, because you will need them.
