All kinds of crap, in no particular order.

I'm sorry, I'm sorry. I hate to hit you with a numerological rundown of my weekend, but it was busy, and well, warm...so while I would love to be remembered for my blogging, I don't want my death certificate to read "...was found face down on her keyboard, clearly drooling, on an otherwise sunny and cheerful day. Poor loser."

1. R.I.P. Gil. Yum.

2. Friday Night I had a much needed night out with my girlfriends at my most favorite semi-local haunt, The Ugly Duckling. Seriously, I have reviewed it before, and if you ever find yourself in small town Northwest Ohio, go there. It's even number 8 on the Master List of Fun things to do in Ohio! anyways, enough plugging, the evening was wonderful. You know how us girls are, talking about cleaning the house, our silly husbands, and washing our hair, followed by intermittent group trips to the bathroom....haha. Actually, it was a night of The Clash, Journey, on tap Blue Moon, and explaining to the sole male attendee just how the man on Oprah was pregnant. He still has his girly parts inside, duh!

3. Saturday was hubby's 27th birthday. It was low key, but nice to relax. He spent the day golfing while I prepared a feast of crab stuffed salmon, steak, and a lovely two layer chocolate cake. Ok, I bought the cake, I don't bake, ever. Anyways, when he got home, I let him tool around, guilt free on the computer, while I was busy working away in the kitchen (throwing some flour around, pretend cursing my kitchenaid mixer...I go to great lengths to make things believable). Then, something happened that reminded me why I have been in love with this man for 13 of his 27 years on this earth. He was on the phone with his friend, and while I don't normally eavesdrop on his conversations, I overheard the following statement.

Hubby: blah, blah, blah
Friend responds...
Hubby: blah, blah, blah..hahaha, blah, blah.
Friend responds...
Hubby: Oh my God I know, it reminds of that time in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 when...

Hold the phone. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2! Who in their right mind admits to even watching that, let alone reference it in conversation...in 2008! This is the man I married.

Happy Birthday Darling!

4. This Thursday The Office is back, Jack! Random The Office quote numero uno...

"Yes. It is true. I, Michael Scott, am signing up with an online dating service. Thousands of people have done it, and I am going to do it. I need a username, and... I have a great one. "Little Kid Lover". That way people will know exactly where my priorities are at."

5. We spent Sunday outside working on the yard. In fact, my whole little street was bustling with rakes and flower planting. Very Norman Rockwell around these parts...if Norman Rockwell lived on a street where it was still socially acceptable to plant flowers in an actual old bathtub in your front yard. Amidst the bustle, I finally befriended my first neighbor, never you mind she was an 11 year old girl who easily related to me and my love of The Jonas Brothers and MTV's True Life. She was full of wonderful facts, like how the lady at the end of the street is known by all the local kids as the "Grumpy weird hat lady," because she is equally mean and often wears silly hats. Which is weird because you would think someone would clearly have to have a sense of humor to wear a prairie bonnet with jeans. She also confirmed my fears that some of the adults on the street were weary (her words) of me because some of the boys saw me through the kitchen window in just a bra. *Insert awkward school girl giggle* I told her to assure everyone that I have since purchased a kitchen curtain, and it was clearly an accident.

So now I got this hussy rap to beat.

6. Random The Office quote number two...

"Dwight: Once I’m officially regional manager, my first order of business will be to demote Jim Halpert. So I will need a new number two. My ideal choice? Jack Bauer. But he is unavailable. Fictional. And overqualified."

7. This has been bugging me...Goofy and Pluto are both dogs, and yet, Goofy is allowed to walk around wearing pants and talking, but Pluto has to walk on all fours and bark. This seems wrong to me...like equally as wrong as the amount of Disney channel I must be watching to have this thought even cross my mind.

8. Saturday is my youngest first birthday party, and this is a warning that this week will be full of frantic stressful posts as I try to execute a luau themed birthday bash on the only day this week it is supposed to both drop below 65 degrees and rain...bastards! Thank god I always theme my kid's parties in a way to make large volumes of alcohol acceptable...bring on the Mai Tais!

9. I will leave you with a few final quotes from The Office...

"Do you watch battlestar galactica? No? Then you are an idiot."

"Michael: I call everybody faggy. Why would anyone find that offensive?"

"Dwight: I wish I could menstruate. If I could menstruate, I wouldn't have to deal with idiotic calendars anymore.I'd just be able to count down from my previous cycle. Plus I'd be more in tune with the moon and the tides."

Well, at least now you know why the neighbors don't like you...

A. RIP Gil. You were loved and are missed by all.

B. I'm pretty sure my husband could be your husband's best friend. I'd try to hook it up, but I have no doubt they will someday befriend each other on Xbox Live.

I always thought once I got married we would be beyond this?

C. Dwight's rag quote is probably the best tv line ever. And I'm fully aware of the definitiveness of 'ever.'

D. Never been to the Ugly Duckling. I'm pretty sure I've only been to Swanton once, and that was to buy a horse.

E. Totally stupid of me, but I didn't even think of how you had blogs before I started reading your site. Note to self: Next time I'm bored, I now have an answer for entertainment.

1) I love things in numerological order. This is the only time there is order in my life
2) I bet Gil was worth every bit of guilt?
3) Close your curtains, close your curtains, close your curtains!!!
4) Guys are so stupid and will NEVER grow up! Oh yeah - happy birthday to all!
Okay, that's all I have time for today!!!
