10 on Tuesday - Michigan Edition

I am in Michigan for work this week.  Here are my 10 random thoughts.

10.  C is keeping the dogs for me.  I hope it isn't a deal breaker.
9.  I have tv this week!  Holy crap.  Yesterday I watched House and some show I've never seen before. This morning I watched the today show!!!  and tonight I am watching Sydney White on HBO Family.  
8.  My boss is a hugger.  There was some concern that I may have attack hugged her last time I was here.
7.  I wish I had brought my swimsuit for hot tub time.  But, alas.
6.  I hope to get up at least once to eat free breakfast here at the hotel. Hopefully they have good coffee!
5.  I bought a totally unnecessary magazine on Monday.  Real Simple Weddings 2009.  Bad Bad girl.
4.  I went to IKEA today.  It was a really fun trip.  I got to wander around and look at everything I wanted.
3.  I am trying to drink lots of water this week....  And then White Castle has Wild Cherry Fanta Slushies.  Why, White Castle, Why?
2.  I have a king size bed at the hotel.  woohoo!  Too bad I am alone.
1.  I Love Him.

17 again

This week has been a rough one, but, it was greatly improved last night. I went to see 17 Again. It was lovely.

The girls and I rushed into the theatre late...ha ha...it was empty. Apparently no real need to rush. We picked out the best seats in the house and got to watching.

The first few minutes of the movie were pretty dang cheesy. I was worried that my $9.50 was going to be a total waste. But, it quickly got better. Once Matthew Perry turned into that cute kid from high school musical - we were golden.

The movie made me have some genuine laughs and some uncomfortable feelings and some warm fuzzies. There were lots of funny lines and that HSM kid well, I guess he's cute.*

All in all I loved the movie. It's one I will definitely buy when it's on dvd.


* I thought the kid was cute in this movie. Usually, he's hideous because he has too much product in his hair and gross clothing and makeup on.

Luckiest Girl(s) Ever

Long ago in a far away land there was a lovely princess named Raquel.  Raquel was not a typical princessy-princess with the pink and the sparkles and the glass slippers, but she was a princess nonetheless.  She was blessed with the best prince ever, his name was Jefe.  

Her friend Frootie! wasn't sure at first.  She had a hard time liking this prince.  He was too sweet, too nice, and too nerdy.  He was smart and clever and funny.  Seriously...there HAD to be something wrong with him.    One day Raquel told Frootie! that she and Jefe had broken up.  Frootie! was delighted.  She couldn't be happier that this smart, clever, and funny prince was O-U-T.  

You see, Frootie!  was in a relationship.  One from high school - all thru college - and well, in general a real marathon of a relationship - it had long since gone stale.  She had no idea that what you want in a Prince is someone who makes you laugh by being funny, not rude.  Someone who genuinely cares for others, who she could grow old with and sit with on the porch of the castle and look out over her kingdom with.  This was not what she had - so she assumed that those who did were wrong, and probably retarded.  

Well, as it turns out Raquel knew that Jefe was the one.  She just needed a little time away from him to realize that her life was much better with him around.  In order to rush thru to the "Happily Ever After" part - long story short Raquel and Jefe were married in a beautiful ceremony in October of 2006 and they did just that.  They now have a lovely little baby Princess named Heleena and have just purchased their very own castle with a kingdom to look out over.  *sigh*

Frootie! also came to her senses and began to understand the appeal to Jefe.  He was funny.  He was just a wonderful man to have around, always willing to help or to lend an ear or to send some merriment to those in need.  Frootie! realized that Raquel was right...and Frootie! was wrong, and probably retarded.

Now, on to another "once upon a time" situation -- Not so long ago and not so far away, ahem, in reality about 8 months ago and right exactly where Frootie! sits her prince charming came along.  Has she ever told the story of how she met her prince?  (Gosh, she'll have to check the archives....Ha!  She never has...).  Last summer Frootie! made a trip south.  A trip all the way down to Georgia to see two lovely people get married.  Little did she know at the time - her prince charming was the Best Man at the wedding.  Best Man, is the perfect definition for him.  C, oh how I adore thee.  C and Frootie! were introduced at the wedding and that is where their happily ever after began. 

Prince C and Princess Frootie!'s love grew very fast.  Frootie! knew that he was the one very very quickly.  She also knew that he could very easily break her royal heart.  She tried to play it cool.  It didn't work.  After a date and a few weekends together she was hooked.  He had worked his magic on her.  He was sweet.  He said good morning every morning via text.  The first weekend they spent together he was the perfect gentleman.  He cooked her breakfast.  He let her use the remote.  He held her while she slept.  Frootie! knew that she was in love with him when she realized she never ever had to be someone that she wasn't.  He made her laugh.  And, he reads.  He loves to read just like she does.   They are perfect for each other.  It is natural and easy for them when they are together.  It is true love.  

Princess Frootie! and Princess Turkey are the luckiest girls to have Prince C as their very own.  He is the best and most perfect boyfriend and daddy any girl could ask for.  Queen Raquel and Princessa Heleena are on the same royal ship.  King Jefe is pretty damn amazing, too.  Lucky, lucky ladies.

I wish everyone could know the love that we 4 girls know.

a hug and a hello

Last week I was bbm-ing with C. We do this everyday, pretty much all day because we are so far from each other and we need constant contact and constant reminders of how hot we are/how much we want to ravage each other's bodies. True story.

Anyway, last week he was talking about how much he missed me and he went on to describe how he wanted me to greet him on Friday evening. I won't divulge the dirty details, but let me just say: it wasn't anything you would want your mother to see...I will doctor it a bit for the sake of story telling.

C: OMG when I see you I can't wait to get my hands all over you. I want to kiss and bite your neck and maybe even motorboat you a bit.

Frootie!: C! We are going to be at you mother's house for Easter!

C: I don't care! I want you, I need you, oh baby, oh baby.*

Frootie!: How about a hug and a hello? That would be nice.
C: A mouth hug?

Oh Geez!


*Bonus points if you can name the movie.

Cable Free

Being cable free is really pretty awesome.  I watch television a lot.  Well, watched, now I only watch tv at C's on the weekend and very rarely I turn on the tv in the bedroom to check the weather while I am getting ready in the morning.  My house is quieter and I have to use my imagination more.  This leads to several things:
  • More (than usual) dirty, dirty sex thoughts
  • Overuse of bbm on my crackberry
  • Too much facebook
  • Too much blog stalking of awesome photographers like:  Jessica Claire, Micheal Norwood, Victor Sizemore, Erin Cobb, Angela Crutcher, and Melissa ?.
  • Lots of day dreaming and talking inside my head...wedding planning, baby planning, going on and on and on about the future and how much I can't wait to be in Kentucky for the rest of my life with the man that I love...
Oh well...  that is all on this topic for now.  

I have finally broken free of the block.  Thanks to C and his random bbms - I have a few new ideas!

I have really had a mental block lately.  I can't write anything.  I apologize - to those few people who follow.  I will get back to it soon enough.

You know what is totally Irritating?  

When you have plans with someone and they don't call or txt or email or sky-write you to let you know that your plans are going to fall through.  This is something that I have always hated.  Give me a heads up people!
