When worlds collide... we eat outback.

I have tried to write this post all day... and frankly folks, the EXHAUSTION OF OH-EIGHT has finally reached a pinnacle... and on the worst week possible! I need to be Rested! and Rejuvenated! and Energized! and instead I would like to lie down and hibernate for oh, five months or so. Sunday night, I only slept two or three hours, and last night, I stayed up and talked to my ROOMIE!!! until 12:45, and then still couldn't completely wind down until 1:30.

So, today I am suffering from "Sleep Fever" -- you know when your body is basically screaming at you to lay down and nap and as a result of your complete defiance, said body decides to turn the proverbial heat up. Remember Peeps, your body wants to win and will fight against your willpower.

Needless to say, I will most likely go home, take a shower and wash off the BBQ sauce (more on that below), and head to bed. Sad, but mandated no doubt.


My sweet friend Miranda planned a birthday shindig for Moi last night, and I must say that I had a lot of fun. I was touched that people came! Miranda also pulled a fast one and invited Bitsy & Amy to come! At first, I was seriously confused thinking "wow, that's quite a coincidence that they're here", then it finally occurred to me that Miranda had contacted them.

Mad Props to Party Planner Extraordinaire MirandaDawn.

A fabulous dinner at Outback was promptly followed by a rousing game of Boxers or Briefs at K-Dizzles & Danielle's house. It was fantabulous.

I did receive some lovely gifts and hilarious cards! My friends -- all of them -- are too kind! I am so blessed to have you all in my life!!!!!


In my progressed state of delirium, I'm pretty sure I'm going to make up words. My apologies in advance. :)


I'm leavin' on a Jet Plane at 6:40pm on Friday... and I absolutely can't wait.


Today, I had to go to the bank and post office, so I swung by Chick-Fil-A and grabbed a #5. SIDENOTE: I just want to tell any of you readers (all okay... maybe 10 of you?) that if you don't have Chick-Fil-A in your neck of the woods... lemme know. It's a travesty for anyone to miss out on the yummy goodness that is CFA. I brought it back to work, partially closed my door, and cozzied up to eat my desk. I mixed my BBQ Sauce and Mayo for my nuggets and broke out my fork so I could eat and scroll through the MSNBC headlines simultaneously. I ignored a few phone calls, but just as I was picking up nugget #6, the phone rang and it startled me. In true cinematic fashion, the nugget, baptized in BBQ/Mayo sauce, flew up in the air. As gravity would have it, it came down again. In my hair. On my WHITE sweater. On my pants near the stride. And finally landing on my chair.

As I sat in shock, I realized that I was out of SHOUT! wipes.


My Tide-To-Go pen has a weird odor and is not really as effective, but I used it and diminished a good bit of the evidence that my old age is going to force me to revisit bibs.

Next step: incontinence at 31.

No Chik-Fil-A here in Michigan. Hubby & I were able to try the yumminess a couple of years ago, but nothing of the kind here :-(
