I Put My Trust in You

Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to celebrate the END. This week's Saturday Scavenger Shots word was chosen by that long, cool drink AlienCG who roams through Swamp Gas & Moonlit Reflections.

Sorry to say I am not going to inspire shock and awe this week :-) I went the way I like to go...towards the stuff that consumes me. What stuff is that? Why, books, of course! Specifically, book ENDs.

We have these metal book ENDs all over the library. This one is in my cupboard. There isn't much to hold up at the moment, but next week when I start pulling books for my next six storytimes that book END will be earning its keep.

This is a different sort of book END. It is the END of an actual book. This happens to be the END of The Razor's Edge by W. Somerset Maugham. The last sentence reads: And however superciliously the highbrows carp, we the public in our hearts all like a success story; so perhaps my ENDing is not so unsatisfactory after all.

Ah, look at you, still here! A friend to the END! The only thing left to do is check with Alien and see if he can find it in his heart to tag someone for next week. The END.

Friday 5 - Pay Day

Thought I might as well do another Friday 5. Don't think of them as filler. Think of them as a way to get to know more about me! Everyone's goal, I'm sure. ;-p

1. How often do you get paid? Every other week. This week is a non-pay day week.

2. Do you tend to splurge a little on (or shortly after) pay day? If by splurge we mean paying the bills and going grocery shopping then yes indeed!

3. What are the few days leading up to pay day like for you? Not so bad lately, but I've had some very fraught times in the past and will surely have more.

4. If you had the option, would you like to be paid daily for each day’s work?No, but sometimes I do think it would be nice to be paid every week.

5. When did you get your first paycheck and what was it for? My first actual paycheck was for a few weeks of work as a camp counselor in the summer between 11th and 12th grade. I think I probably managed to spend more on snacks at the canteen than I made. haha!

Please feel free to participate in the Friday 5 too. I care.

I Guess I Should Be Embarrassed

As you will recall, in my post on Monday I was quite enthusiastic about my date on Saturday night. Since I really haven't heard from Mr G, clearly that enthusiasm was totally one sided. As the headline says, I guess I should be embarrassed. I just don't have it in me though. I did have fun, I did like him. The fact that it only went one way...well, it happens. It sort of makes me feel aware that maybe I am not bringing much to the table, so to speak... I mean, I'm not looking to be uplifted here and I'm not exactly feeling bad about myself, but lets face it...I don't have much to offer. So, I am just going to look at the positives. I had a nice dinner, saw a good movie, and had some interesting conversations. I got to feel happy and excited for awhile. I was inspired to read a book that I'd been meaning to read and am enjoying quite a bit. Meeting someone new is seldom a total loss and this certainly was not. So there you have it. I guess I should be embarrassed, but I think in the end it is okay to put your feelings out there. It seems better to get excited and happy than to be all jaded and closed off. That is my opinion. What is yours?

Yeah, I Can Hit High C. Just Grab This...

Welcome to Choose and Defend Wednesday here at My Boring Life. Always a pleasure. For me at least...I won't speak for you :-) Today, I thought we'd talk about an artform that tends to be much maligned. Come on, let's talk about opera. Wait! Come back! This will be painless, I promise. All you have to do is Choose. Then, all you have to do is Defend. You can do that. I've seen you! Okay, are obliged to go to an opera, but you do have some say in the matter. What will it be?

Classic Opera


Rock Opera
Since you have to go to one or the other, I am sure you can make a fine case for one... or the other. Choose and Defend. Because it is Wednesday.

Oh, and by the way, please note that AlienCG has assigned us the word END for this week's Saturday Scavenger Hunt. Hmmmm. Ominous, no?

This is Not a Post

Not much of one anyway. I mostly just wanted an excuse to show these cute pictures of Miss Personality on her birthday. Her birthday was on Saturday and included a Chuck E. Cheese party, just like last year. This year, I had to work. I'm awful, but I have to say I wasn't that sorry to have to miss out on Chuck E. Cheese. But here is the cute part...before the party, as a surprise, her Auntie Girlie Girl came over and whisked her away for a teeny makeover. haha! It was so sweet!

Here she is having her nails painted. They were bright pink. By the end of the day, they were all still painted except for her index fingers. I like this picture because she looks so excited in it.

Here she is in the new birthday outfit that she and Auntie picked out. Total movie star.

Aw! Thanks for looking at pictures with me. You made my day.

Well, Since You Asked...

...I'd be glad to tell you a little bit about Mr G, the new guy that I've met face-to-face as a result of internetworking < note, probably not a real word, but isn't it good? Internet + Networking = Internetworking. Obviously. Okay, getting back to the point... Well, let me start at the beginning, sort of.

Pretty recently I joined yet another site. This one is more of a social networking site, than an actual dating site, although there is definitely that element too. It is called TeeBeeDee. A good portion of you wouldn't be interested, because it is specifically aimed at the 40+ crowd. That is where I saw Mr G's profile. He looked nice and interesting, plus he was local, so I sent him a smile. Aw! It is like introducing yourself for the very timid. Like me. He wrote me a note back and we began corresponding. After a short time, he gave me his phone number and I gave him mine...because truthfully, I don't like making the first call. That shy thing, right? So, he called me and we talked a few times on the phone, plus continued with some long emails.

Honestly, he appeals to me in every sort of way. He is a high school math teacher, who also does band and drama instruction. He hasn't been married, but he has been in a couple of long term relationships. No kids, but he is very close with his brother and sister and their kids. He speaks four languages. He plays drums in a band called Thrift Store Hooker. He likes bike riding and things like skateboarding, but he also loves reading and writing. One of the first things he suggested when we talked on the phone was that we read a book together and discuss it. *thump thump* *starry eyes* haha!

Moving on...we had a really long phone conversation on Friday night and he asked if I'd want to do something Saturday night. Uh, yeah! We both worked on Saturday until 6. I said I would go his direction, since I like to see a person in their neighborhood. It always strikes me as a good way to find out things about someone. So, I went out there and picked him up in front of his building. He had chosen a Chinese restaurant that he goes to a lot. We both love Chinese food. Yay! So, we ate and talked. It was very comfortable and he's a very interesting person and easy to talk to. After our meal, we decided to go see what was playing at the theater. It was about 10 by then. It turned out Slumdog Millionaire was starting at about 11, so we decided to hang out and see that. Meanwhile I texted Girlie Girl to make sure she was doing okay. She had Miss Personality over for a sleepover, so I was keeping tabs on them. Handsome Lad was at his dad's. Waiting for the movie we just sat and talked some more. I couldn't believe how quickly that hour passed before it was time for the movie. We both really liked it, not too surprisingly. By then it was after 1, so I just took him home and dropped him off, and headed home myself.

So, to follow up, let me tell you a couple more things...and then you can feel free to give me your opinion. Yesterday, he was working again. He texted me a couple times, but didn't call. I know he works a lot, especially as they are preparing for a play (which he's invited me to come see), plus he has his band and his family. So, he's a busy person. I don't have a problem with that, as between my job and family, I don't have a great deal of disposable time either. So that could actually be a good thing. My point is, that we probably have equal levels of time issues, but I do tend to get insecure if I am not feeling...what? Sort of attended to, I guess. But that is my thing. Okay, also though, there was nothing physical. I mean, I felt attracted to him, but you know how it is...I don't know if he was attracted to me. There was no touching, which as a rather simple person, I sort of rely on to feel like someone likes me. I hear how sad that is, and even how incredibly faulty that way of thinking is, but I'm being truthful. I think all my weird insecurities have a lot to do with not having dated all that much really.

Anyway, I guess all I can say at this point is that I really like Mr G. I guess I'd hope that if we don't end up dating or whatever, that we do end up as friends. I think we have enough in common that it would be easy to maintain a friendship. Since we've only just met, things could go any which way...I know that. But I can't help but feel hopeful. And that kind of scares me. So. Aren't you glad you asked?

I've Seen It Before, It Happens All the Time

The word for this week's Saturday Scavenger Shots was choosen by the fascinating Dmarks @ Throwawayblog. The word, ICE, is a perfect choice to compliment the wintery wonderland that many of you are currently experiencing :-)

I have a somewhat dull story relating to Vanilla ICE, whom I'm sure you all remember. If not from his rapping career, then possibly from his Surreal Life appearances. About 17 years ago, at the height of his 'fame', he was in a movie called Cool as ICE...a Rebel Without a Cause remake, if you can believe such a thing. If you check the IMDB listing, you will be able to note that it was filmed on location in Glendora, CA. I never ran into him during the filming, but I did see some of the on site sets. My three oldest kids were small then, and for several days they were fascinated to drive by this house that had been decorated for the movie. It was covered with this rainbow colored siding...very intriguing to small children. Um, and I guess that is Vanilla ICE story.

And now...ICE shots!

Since I don't have a fancy shmancy refrigerator with the in-door water and ICE dispensor, we have to make our ICE the ol' fashioned way. Down homey goodness, I tell you. Notice Handsome Lad has made some blue Powerade ICE cubes.

Shown here, one of my all time favorite treats, ICE cream! Right now, I have chocolate and coffee ICE cream...I keep them in what used to be called the ICE box. Now, of course, it is called by the equally descriptive name of freezer :-)

Thank you for coming by to chill with me as we celebrate the wonders of ICE. Find out from Dmarks, who he is going to tag to choose this week's word. Now, if only I could get the song ICE, ICE Baby out of my head....

Friday 5 - Seven Days

In a shocking move, I have decided to do last week's Friday 5 this week. This week's doesn't pertain to me so much, as it is all about souvenirs and I'm not much of a traveler just yet. I didn't do last week's...and when I wandered over there today, I totally fell in love with it. So, here is last Friday's meme this Friday. Enjoy. And play along!

1. This past week, were you more predator or prey? This week has actually been pretty well balanced! I am equally the hunter and the hunted, it seems. Of course, this is all code for I am talking to a new personals man, and there seems to be an equal level of interest. haha! That's good, right? And fortunately, at work, I am not hunted or hunting. That is definitely good.

2. Which Beatles song title could best be the title of your week? Click here for a complete list of Beatles songs. Why, Birthday, of course! I know it is over, but still....

3. “Roses are red / Violets are blue / ___________ / __________.” How would you complete this poem so that it described this past week? I'm another year older, but by no means through. Wow, I am such a poet.

4. How many pieces of unopened mail are sitting wherever you put your unopened mail? Zero. I either open it or toss it immediately. Um hm, that's right. I am just that decisive. And I don't need more clutter. And I the only one who doesn't really get that much mail nowadays?

5. What was the best meal of the past seven days? Oh, I have to give mad props to my Golden Dragon Chinese Birthday meal. It was superb.

Okay! Now you know me just a little bit better. One day, all will be revealed.

Baby, It's Cold Outside

I know that I don't experience true cold, but keeping in mind that it is all's been pretty cold lately. Especially at night. So, for today's Choose and Defend Wednesday, I thought I'd try and find out how you all handle the long, cold nights. I'm taking a warm body out of the equation...not because I want to, but it simply isn't an option for me right none of you get to exercise that option here either. haha! I'm kidding. You can tell us about your snuggle bunny if you like. But, you must also Choose and then Defend one of my selected options.

So. How do you prefer to keep warm? What is your pleasure?

Something electrical, such as an electric blanket or even turning up the heat at night for pure sleeping comfort?

Piling on the blankets, wearing extra's all about the body heat for sleeping comfort?
Come on, now. Tell us all about how YOU make it through these three dog nights :-) Oh, and if you use the dogs, you can tell us about that too... Just make sure you Choose and Defend!

Ah, My Lovely Long Weekend

What a nice one it was. As you have all been made well aware, Saturday, as well as being everyone's least favorite Hallmark holiday, is also my birthday. It was great to have it fall on a weekend...and a long one at that!

When I got up Saturday morning, I saw that Girlie Girl had laid out some gifts for me. There was one from her, one from Secret Agent Man, Social Animal, & Handsome Lad, and even one from WTG. There was also a cute, teeny chocolate cake :-) So, I had a sweet little pile of stash to go through! Nice. Then Kick Back Dude called to ask if we wanted to drive up and visit the snow. I was kind of meh, but everyone was all into it, so I decided - why not? It was actually a very good day to go, because it wasn't raining, making it a much less stressful drive. We didn't have to go up too far...the snow is at about 4,000 feet right now. Here is what it looked like where we went:Pretty, right? Although probably not so exciting to those of you who live in the snow.
We don't have proper snow clothes, so we didn't stay and play in it for too long. We left the baby, Little Prince, with the other grandma...but the little girls LOVED it...until they felt too cold. Here is Miss Personality making a snow angel.Here is Love Bug all bundled up.After we came back down, we went out to the Golden Dragon for my birthday dinner. We went kind of early so that we wouldn't run into too many V-day diners. Boy, I love Chinese food.... Anyway, it was a really good day :-)

Sunday was quite peaceful. Girlie Girl was in and out during the day, and Handsome Lad hung out with me. He is once again growing a bit disenchanted with his father. I don't really touch that...I just enjoy the extra time with him.

Monday is the usual day that my mom comes and takes whoever is around out to lunch. On the Monday holidays I'm sure she regrets all the hangers-on that gather. haha! It was fun though...we just had Burger King, so that the little girls could play in the play area and the bigger folks could eat their junk in relative peace. The only one of my kids who wasn't there, because he was working, was Secret Agent Man. The kids do have fun when they all get together. Then last night, Girlie Girl and Handsome Lad watched Friday the 13th 3 in 3D. It was so dumb and even the 3D effects were pretty minimal and lame. They had picked it out because they wanted something scary and liked the idea of 3D. It was made in '82 though and really looked it...sort of a puffy clothes and hair thing going on. It was good for a laugh though. There were only two pairs of 3D glasses, and I didn't particularly want to watch it anyway, so I was sitting with them reading in this very dim light, glancing up occasionally at the weirdly red and green outlined screen. Ah, a fine evening.

I hope that you all had a good long weekend too. And please notice that Dmarks has kindly stepped right up and chosen the word ICE for this week! Woo hoo! That's gonna be a gooood one! *said in my Cable Guy voice* :-)

Common Sense, Simple Common Sense

Oh, the EXCITEMENT of getting to post my Saturday Scavenger Shots! I got to choose this week's word and thought maybe we could all use a little EXCITEMENT during this winter slump. I hope everyone enjoyed finding pictures that expressed EXCITEMENT. I know I did! Now, ideally, I think I'd be showing you shots of me shushing down a snow covered mountain or riding the waves on my board or something along those lines. I don't have anything like that. What I do have are a couple of photos from the Library, EXCITEMENT tends to arrive in the form of special guests. So, here are a couple of our favorites:

Twice a month, there is a great deal of EXCITEMENT in the Children's Room as our special dog friends pay us a visit. They are sweet, gentle doggies, and the kids love reading to them. The big dog, Bernie, shown here, generates EXCITEMENT in the families the second he walks into the room. They follow him like he's the Pied Piper.

The EXCITEMENT caused by these fellows has a different source depending upon your age and orientation. The kids see super heroes who drive a huge, shiny red truck. EXCITEMENT! And I think you all know what I, EXCITEMENT :-)

So, there you have it. I hope you were able to share in my EXCITEMENT, tame as it is. I am not sure what to do about tagging someone for next week...people have been sort of roaming in and out of the blogosphere lately...I don't want to keep picking the same people over and over, but I also don't want to call upon someone who isn't around or doesn't want to play. Well, let me about Dmarks. Are you up for it? I guess we shall see...

Happy Valentine's Day!

Single or all sweethearted doesn't really matter! Have a sweet day either way. It's true! I do choo-choo-choose you! xoxo

Best of Both Worlds

I wanted to revisit a piece of my post from last year's birthday. Here it is:

Edit...Tara's comment reminded me that I wanted to tell this funny thing about my co-workers. Usually within each Dept. we will do a little celebration with a cake or something. Two people in Children's are trying to diet. I'm not one of quiet. Anyway, at their birthday's they wanted fruit or something "healthy". I have been saying for at least two or three months that I want chocolate cake! No fruit on my birthday! Today, what do you think? I got flowers :-) The Dept. Head, Smiley, told me that Drifter and Glenn Close Parker Stevens, the dieters, had both said they didn't want to be tempted with cake! Dang dieters....

Boy, oh boy, can I ever bitch, eh? This year, I am happy to report that my co-workers did the right thing :-)Here is what is left of the chocolate cake that they gave me at our section meeting on Wednesday. I took it home and now Girlie Girl, Handsome Lad, and I are picking our way through it. It is delicious.

Also, if you read my last Choose and Defend Wednesday post, including the comments, you will see that I came around to the idea of flower appreciation. You girls are persuasive! So, it was fun to come home from work yesterday to find that my dad and step-mom had sent me these......beautiful roses! Here they are on my kitchen table. They smell wonderful and add a bit of luxury to my humble abode.

So, as you can see, I have nothing to complain about and aren't we all thankful for that! I even ended up getting a long weekend, just by the luck of my regular rotation. The crowd goes wild! Long weekend! It is like my own personal present from the cosmos :-) Yeah, I must think a lot of myself - haha!

I Love You. How Do You Want It?

haha! Do you like that title? Well, anyway, I thought that for today's Choose and Defend Wednesday I would let you Choose your own Valentine's Day gift. I know there are many, many mixed to negative feeings about this particular holiday. I hear you there. Still, don't let that stop you from playing. Indulge me.

Be mine, Be mine
Sweet Valentine...

You may Choose...


You may Choose...


What'll it be, Sweetheart? Anything your little heart desires. As long as it is flowers or candy :-) Choose and Defend on this pre-Valentine Wednesday. xoxo <3

laura b.'s Choice

K_Sra, seeing that Mrs. wasn't coming around, has chosen yours truly to pick this week's Saturday Scavenger Shot word. Yay! I am always so excited to choose! Given that...let us try....EXCITEMENT. I can't wait to see the EXCITEMENT this Saturday :-) Thanks.

You Are Getting Sleepy...Sleepy...Sleepy....

It is only Tuesday and I am one tired pup. Probably the price of getting all het up about the car. And not getting enough sleep. Ever. Actually, most of the time, not getting enough sleep doesn't seem like much of a hardship. I think right now I am just kind of cycling through a little low ebb or something. It's been rainy, it is just about that time o' the month, I've felt extra busy at work, I'm dealing with my new driver...I think there are a number of explanations. I know this fatigue will pass and I will feel renewed at some point. And just knowing that, feeling sure of it, is very helpful. Look here at how old and wise I'm getting, right before your very eyes! Ooooohhhh! Well, old at least... :-D Anyway, I hope you are all getting enough rest. If you are, send some energy my way. If you're not, let's commiserate.

This Won't Improve Your Perception of Me

There is no way this little rant is going to do anything positive for my image...but what the hell? Do I even have an image? haha! Not so much, so maybe a small bitchfest won't be so bad. If nothing else it will help me feel better.

Okay, yesterday was our big family lunch for celebrating the January and February birthdays. As usual, my dad and stepmom had taken us out to eat and we were all just enjoying a nice visit. Of course WTG wasn't there, as he hates my dad. Still, he managed to push himself right into the center of it. Let me tell you how. Let's see..okay, since getting her license Girlie Girl has been agitating for a car. Each of the boys got a car when they got their licenses. Nothing fancy, just a little something to get around in. So of course, WTG apparently races out while we are having our lunch to pick up this car he got a line on. Then, as we were sort of finishing up, but not finished, he send Girlie Girl a picture of this car and when she calls him he tells her it is right outside the restaurant. So, of course, half of the people in our group leave the table. They drifted back in in a bit, because he had driven the car over and was going to drive it back to his house for us to pick up later. Bear with me here, and please know that I know how awful I sound, but I was just thinking, "You have got to be kidding."

I am happy for Girlie Girl to have a car (although guess who will pay the insurance for it?) And I certainly couldn't go out and buy her a car, so what am I complaining about? I guess I am complaining about his constant desire to be the center of attention. He had to give her the car right then, so that everyone in the whole family would know that he had come through and his parade could be scheduled or whatever. He was in such a rush to make his presentation that he didn't even bother to go through it and make sure everything was working and that she could drive it. As it turns out, it needs a few things done before anyone in their right mind would put their daughter behind the wheel.

Girlie Girl was so excited, of course. It is a cute little 1995 BMW convertible.This isn't it, but it pretty much looks like that as far as I can tell. Just right for a teenage girl, if we're going by the looks of the thing alone. But I am like a bitter old shrew. I am noting the work that needs to be done, the fact that they guy before him only owned it for about six weeks, that it just had a part put on that cost $550 used and had no guarantee should there be further water damage to this particular I'm just getting all kinds of bad feelings. And I'm worried that maybe after this initial fixing up, which I believe WTG will do, I will be stuck with a four wheeled cash sucker. It is just a bad, bad feeling. So there is that, plus my resentment of his timing, which effectively ended that little gathering.

Anyway, that concludes my rant. Awful. But honestly... Geez.

I Mostly Believed Her and She Mostly Believed Me

I have to apologize in advance for this Saturday Scavenger Shots post. We can blame it on the word, OPTIONS, chosen by K_Sra at You Learn Something New (Almost) Everyday. I mean, with OPTIONS you have so, OPTIONS. So, I was thinking and thinking. Then I got distracted by the yucky rain coming through. And so then, I got all wistful and whimsical...and this is what you get when Grandma gets wistful and whimsical. Sorry.

Okay. When it is rainy you have several OPTIONS...

You can venture on out into it. Just remember your umbrella-ella-ella...That is one OPTION.

You can always just stay in, watch some tv, make a few phone calls...That is another OPTION.

Another OPTION is to simply hibernate. Sleep through as much of the bad weather as you can. Sounds good to me :-)

Thanks for exercising your OPTIONS today. I hope you didn't mind my particular OPTIONS too much. I can't wait to see who K_Sra tags for next week!

Project 5, Finally

I was tagged for this project a bit ago by Daffy at Almost There. I think it is a great tag for me, because it involves:

Setting yourself 5 Projects (+1) defining those projects and then tagging 5 people to do the same. (+1 being regular updates).

I am not going to tag this time, because I know how busy everyone is. However, I encourage you to participate. I mean, who couldn't use some goals! Some of my goals might sound familiar and I apologize for that. Still, they are things I really want to move towards.

1. Become More Informed. I need to be more cognizant of what is going on in the world around me. I am almost always woefully ignorant of...well, a lot of things. I want to be more informed politically, from local to world government. I like to bury my head in the sand, but I am trying to get away from that. I'm going to work hard on reading more news, seeking out information on topics that interest me, reading more non-fiction, and learning new things.

2. Think More About My Health. I have always had such good fortune with my health *knock on wood*, but in a few days I will be 46 years old. I haven't been to the doctor in probably ten years. I know...I know that is just wrong and even dangerous. I need to start doing some various basic maintenance. An annual physical, pap smear, mammogram, blood work, whatever! It is foolish to assume that as long as you feel okay everything is okay. So, this is a pretty high priority goal for me.

3. Save For a Rainy Day. Historically, it has been virtually impossible to me to set money aside. The reality is that every penny I earn is put to use in day to day living expenses. And I am no spendthrift and am in no way an extravegant person. Still, I am going to have tighten my belt further. These are uncertain times...among the most uncertain I can remember weathering in my adult life. If I lost my income right now, I would be destroyed pretty quickly, because there is nothing to fall back on. Before this point in my life, I have felt more secure. I've never lost a job, but before I always felt if I did, well I would get another. In this economy, I can't pretend that would necessarily happen! At least not quickly enough. So. Save until it hurts, then save a little more.

4. Don't Sit Home If I Have a Chance to Go Out. I'm a homebody, I admit it. My inclination is to relax there whenever possible. When I am invited somewhere, I generally have to struggle to talk myself into going. I know it is kind of ridiculous, but I guess that is just my nature. I am going to keep fighting against that inclination and just go! Once I'm out there, I very rarely regret it. Most often I'm very glad I went. It is just getting there. Nike's motto is mine - Just do it. :-)

5. Live In the Moment. I think everyone becomes aware of this one from time to time...that life is just flying by and we aren't actually fully experiencing any of it! Then, there are those moments of hyper-awareness - I am walking, I feel my body working efficiently for me, the sky is stippled with clouds, I feel the cool air on my skin and breath it in....very zen, you know? And in one of those moments you want so much to hold onto that feeling...but you never do. Still, I want to try and be aware. It seems important and worth doing.

Okay! So, those are my Project 5 goals. Let me know what you think, if anything. Consider posting yours...or at least consider giving me some words of encouragment if you can find it in your heart. :-D

I Always Feel Like Somebody's Watching Me

It is already Wednesday again. Hump Day, hyuck, hyuck, hyuck... And clearly it is shaping up to be one of those weeks around here. Still, I always look forward to Choose and Defend Wednesday, despite it's mixed success :-) I like thinking of choices and I always enjoy the responses. So...let us begin. Share this bit of info. with us, if you please. Choose, then tell us about it...Defend!

How do you see yourself, generally speaking, as you move through life? Are you....

A Voyeur?

Or are you more of....

An Exhibitionist?

Now, I know those particular terms have certain conotations, but they needn't. It is simply a matter of whether you prefer to watch or be watched. Choose and Defend. Because it is Wednesday and it is what we do at My Boring Life. Thanks!

Earning My Keep

I have been super busy at work the past couple of weeks. Basically, this is a good thing. As long as I am working, I might as well be working! Today was extra crispy crazy.

So in lieu of a post, please enjoy this funny picture. I call it "I Will Kill You in Your Sleep". Thank you.

Like, Oh My Gawd! Gag Me With a Spoon!

Yesterday, instead of watching the Super Bowl, I went to my friend Milly's Super Awesome 80's Birthday Party. It was radical!

The birthday girl looking awesome!

Me arriving with the perfect 80's beverage in hand. Wine coolers, dude! I know I look, uh, special. It was the best I could do with what I had on hand...

Me and a fellow dancing bear's husband. Tubular.

I apologize to the football fans, but this was way better than watching a game...even, dare I say it? The Super Bowl. Dun, Dun, Dun! I better watch my back, eh?
