Thursday Ten, The Yes-I-Know-It’s-Really-Friday Edition

Okay, so yesterday kicked my ass in a way that only Thursdays can and [insert excuse why I was just too busy to write this post yesterday], but here I am. And here’s the Thursday Ten, on Friday.

1. The BLUE SCREEN errors on my computer are really annoying me. I need to go to the Dell website and check for updated drivers. I just haven’t. I’m kind of getting used to these stupid errors.

2. I had a two hour meeting for work yesterday and it was probably the highlight of my day. My mom’s husband watched the girls while I went to the meeting (the snow increased my drive time from 30 minutes to 90 minutes). I stopped at Starbucks (ALONE) on the way there for a nonfat venti cappuccino, went to the meeting and hit Starbucks (AGAIN) on the way home for a gingerbread latte for lunch.

3. After 90 minutes of driving, I arrived at the meeting seriously needing to pee but I didn’t want to ask where the bathroom was. So, I never went. And I held it through the two hour meeting. And I held it for the ten minutes or so that it took me to get to Starbucks, and you better believe I made a beeline for that bathroom once I got there. Holy cow. I was miserable! (Moral of the story: Ask where the bathroom is. Everybody pees. It’s not a huge deal).

4. After two 2-hour delays and one snow day this week, I am so so so glad that school is back to normal for the day. I needed that. The Princess is off at kindergarten and Pumpkin is trashing the playroom (she’s very good at that). I can’t wait until naptime.

5. Sarah’s favorite download of the week: “You Can’t Count on Me” by the Counting Crows. Love it. Cannot wait for the new album in March.

6. Project Runway on Wednesday was hilarious – they had to make costumes for the “Divas of the WWE”. I don’t watch wrestling, so I have no idea who the hell these women are, but I think it’s funny that the designers start their challenge at a fabric store called “Spandex House” or “House of Spandex”. The costumes were described as “stripper/tranny wear”. For these designers to go from couture to slutwear is somewhat (okay, more than somewhat) amusing.

7. Have I mentioned that winter sucks? Snowstorms suck. When the plows come through and clear the streets and block the end of my driveway? That sucks too.

8. My friend, Kim, forwarded me a link to Tom Cruise’s goofball rant on YouTube. He’s really lost it, hasn’t he? Can anyone even stand him anymore? I’m just curious. I know I’ve mentioned it before, but man, I can’t even watch “Jerry Maguire” anymore. And my god, he’s even ruined “Top Gun” for me. Darnit.

9. Since I’m on a celebrity thing – Matthew McConnaghey either cut his hair or he’s wearing it differently. Either way, he’s looking a bit like Jason Priestly, circa 90210. Not good. Not good at all. I think I may have to temporarily suspend my Matthew McConnaghey crush til he can work through his hair issues.

10. I have been waiting for “Musicophilia” by Oliver Sacks to come in at the library – I’ve had it on hold for months. I picked it up this morning and I plan to start digging into it this weekend. I can’t wait. I usually read fluffy fiction, but this sounds so interesting, I’m hoping I’m able to absorb it!

  1. Hey, I just got home and read your comments. Thank you for sharing from your own heart. I really needed to hear what you had to say, so thanks for going out on a limb.

  2. Hey, I just wanted to let you know that I saw Matthew McConnaghey in Las Vegas (of all places- eye roll) and he was really really short. Cute, but short. Since we have never actually met I don’t know how tall you are- but something to consider.

    Ditto on Tom Cruise, although I haven’t seen the youtube thingy. He just bugs consistently!
