Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy!!

It's so good to see blue sky. We have had some icky weather over the past few days. Thankfully nothing more than severe thunderstorms, but still icky. I am looking forward to a sunny weekend, and a night of live music on Saturday.

Darn toe still isn't healed and I'm leaving for Vegas in a couple of hours. Oh well, I did manage to get a pedicure and I'm sure Vegas will be a good time. Missing my Jim. Can't wait to see him.

i would LOVE to get my hands on the idiot that designed this form.

you tell me that i have to add regional performance commitments to the end of the mandated performance commitments - but the space will only hold 1,200 characters.

one of your mandated performance commitments is larger than 1,200 characters.

how the HELL do you expect me to complete this form?

I just bought $261 worth of clothing for $105. I feel giddy. I mean, I got 60% off!!!!!!!

I need to step away from my bankcard. I don't have money like this.

But I feel like I'm actually HELPING myself by getting such a deal.






I realize that my voice of denial is LOUD.

I wanna help span the generations my getting my niece hooked on Wonder Woman.

I'm thinking it would be so much cooler if he ran away with Wonder Woman.

No...going no-poo or CG does not work for me. It leaves me overconditioned and oily in a second no matter what I use, so that's not what's not working.

Wonder Woman is a bad a$$ Princess. Princess Diana of the immortal Amazons!

I liked playing Wonder Woman because I loved to spin around, and trap boys in my truth lasso. Oh yes, now you're mine! Answer honestly! Do you have a crush on me?

Yes
No
Maybe

Sunshine, they have the DVDs of the 70s Wonder Woman on amazon. I bought them to watch with Danae a few years ago, and she loved them.

My company makes us do physicals every year too. For the past two years, they've told me I was overweight, because they go strictly by that crappy BMI measurement. Everything else has been normal for me-blood pressure, glucose, etc. I'm sure it is a scam.

LadyV, I pay no attention to that crap. If I followed that stupid chart, I would look anorexic if I weighted what it said I should. My doctor even said so.

Somehow I don't think she would be impressed by that. She's gonna be itty bitty. It's gonna be inheriting on her dad's side. All her dad's sister's are like legit size 00 and have to pin the skirts to get them to fit. She's like a little fairy. A clumsy, little tough (our side, luckily)dirty fairy.

I don't live with them anymore (rented the basement apt), otherwise I would totally buy every single season of the 70's Wonder Woman AND Charlie's Angel's and have her down there having a girl's night and making them her hero's. But she's a Princess and has like 3 of each of the Princess dresses and changes into each of the dresses 3 times a day. It's fine. I'll get her 3 Wonder Woman Costumes to balance her out. All good, right? She likes sparkly/glittery stuff and Wonder Woman totally beats out in that kind of stuff. My sister totally doesn't get it and I can totally beat her when it comes to the sparkly/glittery game when it comes to hero worship, right?
