It’s a rather blustery day…

Yep. Today the wind is windy and the temperature is dropping and there’s a chance of ice tonight. Every time the weatherman says something about a “light icing” I have dreams of cream cheese frosting. It’s just the sugar withdrawals, I’m sure…

Still, I’m wearing my sassy pants again today. I do love it when I wake full of awesome and sparkle. A friend of mine sent me this picture this morning and you know what? I feel so fabulous, I would have smashed this box twice.

I’m heading to the gym at lunch again today. I’ve decided working out at lunchtime is really ideal for me. And it saves me gas money. I bring my lunch, go do my workout, come back and eat. So I’m getting more awesome AND saving cash. If I get any smarter, you’re all gonna be in trouble.

Hope you’re wearing your sassy pants and sparkle today! Life is better with glitter…

good grief!

Just when I thought I was feeling better, Lucy would pull the football out from under me again.

Damn you, Lucy!

But, after a weekend of only working 3.5 hours each day and sleeping damn near the rest of the time…I can finally say, I feel better.

Sparkly, even!

Thank goodness. Because last week was the most unfun I’ve had in a long time and I hope we do not have a repeat anytime soon…

January…what a bleh month. We’re getting some freezing rain today, possibly some snow. Probably not gonna be anything like what we had over the holidays, but still…I don’t like being at work when the stuff starts falling. Let’s hope it just blows on through.

It was 75 degrees on Saturday…and it’s 25 degrees right now. Arkansas! There is nothing predictable about our weather!

Oaklawn opened Friday…and for the first time in forever, I wasn’t there. So sad. The girls will be planning a day soon, and I can’t wait. I do love my days at the races with my crew.

Speaking of my crew…damn I miss everyone. What a weird past couple of months I’ve had. I’m working on weekends now, so I’m exhausted by the time I finish with work and can’t make it to the PartyHood. I haven’t made it to Girl’s Night Out since early November, and that feels weird. Jefe and I haven’t been able to go out in forever either…I’m kind of ready to get back to the social aspect of my life…when I can fit it in, that is.

Rader’s birthday is at the end of this month, and he sent his father an I an email with his wishlist. His note said :

I included price, html, and name of item(s). You’re Welcome. Fishdog and I were joking this morning that this was the equivalent to our days of marking pages and items in the Sears Catalog. (which is how I got my awesome Barbie Country Camper, back in the day.)

Hope everyone had a great weekend and that your week is starting off with a sparkle!

I feel good!

So despite some VERY disturbing dreams last night, I woke today well-rested and in a fantastic mood.

I won’t go into details about my dreams because they were just too disturbing, however, after looking up the interpretation of some of the more haunting symbols, I feel much better. MUCH.

This morning was perfect for coffee and doggies. I had the cool house to myself for about an hour this morning. Everyone else was deep in sleep and I sat on the couch in the dim light and enjoyed the cool breeze and steady rain. I had doggies at my feet, coffee in my cup and Little-Itty-Bitty behind the couch giving the Chimay cork about 10 kinds of hell. it was perfect.

Okay, bitches. Y’all have a great weekend. I hope you plan to snuggle up and enjoy this first burst of cool air! And get busy on your Halloween costumes! I want a full report next week.

Happy Rack Day!

The Governor declared today to be Happy Rack Day. Okay fine, it’s really called Go Pink Friday, but I think I like Happy Rack Day better. Anyway, save the ta tas, wear pink. So I am.

I’m also supporting my little piggies because my pink shirt is also a razorback shirt. And let’s face it, they can use all the support they can get right now…

Also, I’m sporting my new hair cut. Thank you, Katie for bringing back my bangs. I have missed them so! And I do love my Go Go Red!!

It’s gonna get cold and rainy this weekend. No me gusta. Yes, I love fall, but not cold, rainy fall!

Anyway, hope you guys have a great weekend. Don’t forget to check for lumps…and remember, it’s okay to ask for help. 🙂

Oh. My. God. Becky.

Look at her butt!

It’s like, so big!

yeah, I heard BABY GOT BACK on the radio this morning and I’ve been jammin’ ever since. It’s totally today’s theme song…

Here I am in 2010 doing karaoke to BABY GOT BACK with a couple of my writer friends at the RWA Conference in Orlando. Apparently there is a video out there somewhere…thankfully, I don’t know the location…

Also saw this today and it made me LOLOLOL

to all my friends in Florida, stay safe…and “Outta Sight!”

Have a great weekend! Stay sexy and sparkle on!

Monat der Mel 2012: Tag 21

Ahem, and for Day 21 of the Month of Mel we celebrate in Lederhosen and drink from steins…because yesterday I sold German rights to BITE ME! in German language worldwide. Plans are for a September 2012 release!

Maybe it will sell well and they’ll decide to purchase rights to LOVE SUCKS! next.

In other, less exciting news, IT IS RAINING ALL THE RAIN today. ALL. THE. RAIN.

We needed it to wash away the pollen, but we didn’t need this much. And we’re expecting up to 5 inches more today. Whoa and Damn. Lots of water falling from the sky and rising up from the rivers.

Despite the gloomy day, I’m a very happy camper. There’s extra sparkle to go around, so if you need some, line up. I gots plenty.

it’s raining crazy

And I’m not just talking about the dumbasses who forget how to drive when water falls from the sky. /rant

Yesterday, I posted my Bachelor Recap for episode 4 on Hey Don’t Judge Me. Y’all. Y’ALL. I cannot explain the amount of crazy that pours out of that show. It is seriously awesome. And I’m always left to wonder what the douches and hoes think after they watch themselves..and see the behind the scenes crazy that goes on. I mean, it’s truly spectacular. So please, go read and talk to me about it. (This recap even has a clip of the crazy. One in which threats are levied against another ho-testant’s eyebrows.)

That’s all I have for today. I am going to go suck down more coffee and watch the water pour from the sky…while driver IQs everywhere continue to fall…

THAT was unexpected

So it kinda, sorta SNOWED last night. I thought it was going to be a little flurry here and there, but no, we got SNOWED IN with 2.2 inches.

Okay, that was me being slightly MEL-o-dramatic (a direct result of the lingering MELaria) but there is some slight truth in that statement. I actually can’t get out of my driveway this morning because there was a big rig wreck on the interstate and a fuel spill. And the road in front of my house is at a standstill. And has been for 2 hours.

At least it’s pretty. And the dogs seemed pretty happy about it…

Personally, I love the fact that the traffic has given me a reason to be late for work and snuggle up with El Jefe and more coffee…

sick and wet. and sick of being wet.

I’ve been under the weather since Wednesday evening. I left work early on Thursday and pretty much slept through Friday. Felt great on Saturday, so naturally, I over did it by working outside then going to a holiday soiree…which means I barely got out of bed yesterday. It was totally worth it, btw…

Now, part of that was sheer laziness. It was a gloomy, cold, rainy day. Okay, all of it was laziness. Fine. You caught me.

Today it’s still gloomy and rainy…I’m sure that the clouds are trying to RAIN ALL THE RAINS because the forecast in the immediate future is wet, wet, and wet.

Fine. It’s wet. I get it. So I went from wearing these boots on Saturday night:

To these boots today. Hmmm. Can you wear fishnets with duck boots?
