Man Oh Friday!

Dear Blog,

I have had so many things happen in the last few days that I want to chronicle and I just haven't. I haven't taken the time to post pictures or stories on you at all. I want to, I really do.

I am leaving for Seattle to work on Plan A. If I have down time, I hope to catch you up on the happenings.

Thanks for being here for me,'s been over a year now. You're still looking well.

Tale As Old As Time.

McWhereHaveYouBeenAllMyLife is acting in a musical that opens this evening. He is playing the role of Gaston in Beauty and the Beast.

Beauty and the Beast was my movie when I was little. When the girls and I had our Disney Princess dance party - I was Belle.

The fun fact? I had a big crush on Gaston. The Beast was exactly that...a beast...for 90% of the movie. Gaston was hot the whole way through. Sure he dies in the end, what hero doesn't?

Coincidence? I think not...sigh.


Break a leg, McWHYBAML! You're the best.

Nobody Gonna Break My Stride...

...nobody gonna slow me down. Oh no. I got to keep on movin'.

After weeks, nay months, of avoiding the plague that's going around - I have undoubtedly contracted a strain of H1N1. Either that or I have a head cold.

At any rate...I'm still going! I got too much to live for.

Last Nerve: Segment 2.

If I had 47 items in my grocery cart and saw that you had 2 items, I would say, "Hey, please jump ahead of me in line - shoot. I insist."

Not everyone aced grocery etiquette class. I didn't either - but I rarely go so it doesn't matter.

Taking Things to a Whole New Level

Well, friends (hi Mom!)'re not really "in a relationship" until you're "in a relationship" in your information section on Facebook.

It's true. I'm still working on a McName for him - the only two that come to mind are : McWhereHaveYouBeenAllMyLife or simply McBoyfriend. The first being really long and not very catchy and the second is just not very creative at all. Anyway.

The funny part about Facebooking and relationship statuses is the fact that Facebook sort of acts like this voice of reason in the decision making process. We decided to make the declaratory act this morning and when I received the "relationship request," it read as follows:

"Would you like to confirm McWhereHaveYouBeenAllMyLife as your boyfriend?" In other words...are you sure? Really?

Had there been a button that said, "Yes, Yes I Really Would," I would have selected that option. Instead, I quickly and happily selected, "Confirm."

It's official. Thanks, Facebook.

Wait Just a Minute Mr. Postman

It's 5:30 p.m. and the mail has yet to arrive. This is because of the recent down-sizing the postal service has gone through. They have merged mail routes and reduced the number of mail carriers in the interest of cost efficiency. There is just not enough mail to go around anymore.

I, personally, really enjoy getting mail. I'd wager to say everyone does. Unfortunately, the mail man is about to go the way of the milk man. Had I been around for the era of the milk man, I would have been sad when he was phased out as well.

Lonster - if you're reading this...I know I don't tell you enough, but I appreciate you. In your honor, I am planning on sending fewer emails and more greeting cards.

"We went for a walk." "On our feet, if I remember correctly."

Happy Friday, Sugar. From my happy heart to yours - watch this. You'll smile. Guaranteed.

Living the Dream.

I am living the dream. Life is abundantly beautiful - has been for a long time but as of late, it's taken on a whole new dimension of "oooooh!" That's a good noise.

Speaking of living the dream - have you ever wondered what it would be like to combine the beloved past time of sleeping and the arguably even more beloved past time of eating? Last night, my little paycheck demonstrated that the two past times can harmoniously coexist.

Warm and Fuzzy Friday

Friday feels awefully good today.

Head tilt. Smile.


Because you asked, here is what's rattling around in my head.

Have you ever met someone that brings out the you in you? I'm not at all saying that your identity is or should be wrapped up in anyone other than yourself. I'm saying that I think sometimes people cross your path and trigger/unleash something inside of you that is the best representation of who you really are. I don't know how they do it but I'm grateful they can. They come and they go - but their effects are long lasting.

Thank you - you people. You did a really great thing in my life, whether you realize it or not.

And in case your fuzzy isn't warm yet - here:
