Going Nucking FUTZ!!!!

Oh my GOD. Do I want to hurt someone. And it's not because of anything in particular, but when your life is an absolute disaster, you want someone to take it out on. Which is why I'm glad I have kept my collection of stuffed animals - prevents me from taking it out on people that I can actually HURT.

I'm so far behind on everything that it's not even funny anymore. Being sick with tonsilitis, then my allergies kept me sneezing and flaked out on the couch because my eyes were so swollen I could barely see. Got a great break on Saturday because the weather was fabulous, I did a first aid course with co-workers that I always have fun with, and then Rod met me downtown and we walked around my old stomping grounds, killing a few hours before we went to see one of my best friends shows - one that has been the culmination of ten years of hard work and struggle. He wrote, directed, acted, co-produced it with his girlfriend, and she did hers as well. The show was called Ready, Set, Life and was two one act, one person plays in one.

Geoff, my bf, is brilliant. He's one of the best actors I've ever seen and he's worked so hard for every little thing he has. And his girlfriend is so funny, very talented as well. It was my first time meeting her, and since it was after their show, there wasn't much time to get to know her. But she seems nice and she makes Geoff happy. And that's all I really care about. He was so happy that Rod went to see the show. He must have mentioned that to me at least six times during the night. And Rod and I really enjoyed some quality time, which is always a good thing.

Well, that was my break. Sunday morning, we got up and went to the driving range with our friends Brenda and James (ow - pulled a muscle in my side - mental note to warm up better next time). My swing was ABYSMAL. And I used to be the junior club champion. So I have to work on it before we go out for 18. Then we go home, and everything just goes downhill (and gets louder) from there.

I won't get into details, but let's just say that by the end of the night, I was ready to jump out a window. Yesterday, I had my training for the new soccer stadium on the Exhibition grounds ( YAY TORONTO FC! ) Great day, until the MONSOON hit. I got soaked through to the skin, but so did everyone else. We dried off though, and all giggled about it. Jeremey's face was so sunburnt from his shift at Canadian Idol, the poor boy looked like a tomato.

OK - so I digress. This was supposed to be a rant on all that I'm behind.

*My house is a freaking disaster. I managed to clean out my closet two weekends ago, but it still needs work. Laundry is always piled to the ceiling, no matter how much time I spend on it.
*My AVON money is due, and I haven't collected from the last order :S
*I'm five DVD reviews and a CD review behind for my editor and I dashed off some crap for my last column, so it wasn't even up to par
*my tooth is getting pulled today, which is guaranteed to knock me out of my boots for at least a day
*I joined the gym, JUST before I got tonsilitis - haven't been yet
*still need to find cheapest tickets for Disney for the August trip - haven't gotten around to that yet - but I'll betcha the cost of one that I have about 5000 emails in my disney trip account - and I wish that was an exaggeration.
*I have four stories I am in the process of writing, and a play that I've got in mind for Geoff - which will probably take me ten years to write
*Need a french maids costume for this Friday night as we are taking a co-worker to see the Rocky Horror Picture Show for his bday, and with my hair, I have no choice but to go as Magenta

And that's just the stuff I can write down - there's a whole lot more that's making me want to go insane, but it wouldn't be a good idea to write it down.

They never told us that life got more hectic as we got older - and I don't even have kids yet!!!!

Stay sane inside insanity ~ and never forget your towel.

In hope...


I found this wonderful image online and just felt the need to share it today.

I wanted to put music to it, but bestaudiocodes doesn't appear to be working, and I STILL can't figure out how to use my own music.

Ok, so not a post...

But I thought these were just too adorable not to share...

Poem from the Past...

It's Never

It's never as simple
as it seems to be,
is it, little one?

It's never as neat
as you need it to be,
is it, darling one?

It's never as near
as you hope it to be,
is it, precious one?

It's never as perfect
as you thought it would be,
is it, beautiful one?

You're never as loved
as you want to be,
are you, desperate one?

When rabbit howls
inside your head,
close your ears, for

it's as soul wrenching

as it's always been,
isn't it,

little one?

Vote for...., not the worst, and no, DEFINATELY not Sanjaya Malakar. Attention friends in the blogosphere - I need your assistance. My friend Paul (of Thoughts from the Freak), has decided that he is going to have a t-shirt made with one of the many interesting lines he's come up with.

He's posted ten of them over at his blog, and needs help deciding which one. So, if y'all could surf on over and vote, and maybe check out some of his other posts, that would be great. ;D

(The scary thing is - this is his natural state - he doesn't do drugs!)

I'll try and post the T.T. later on today.

Hugest hugs and giant thank you's. ;D
