Moving on up....

I'm moving on the East siiiiide....

Well not that far but I'm moving into an office.  Well half an office...but it has a door so I guess it's still an office! Right now I live in a cubicle and I must say that I LOVE it.  I can see lots of things that go on out here and as the nosiest person ever, that is perfect for me.   So as you can imagine it was hard for me to know that my view of everything was going to be no more!

I am excited though because when I want to go to sleep have some privacy, I can close the door!!! YAY FOR ME!!

I will let you know how I'm liking it next week.....

Your new American Idol is.....

LEE DEWYZE!!!!!!!!!!

I know I predicted that Crystal was going to win but I changed my mind and I was right!!!!!!  I didn't really care who won because for once I think they both deserved to win.

Last night was the 2-hour finale.  My goodness...why do they take so long?  Oh, right, because they are TWO hours long.  Last year's was way better, but so was the talent so I guess it makes sense.  This year's was boring...again to match the talent.  I think I saw Alice and Chains, XTina, Alanis Morisette (what hole did they find her in?), Janet Jackson (Miss Jackson if you're nasty), and some other people.  Like I said, last year's was better.

Oh yeah, drunk ass Paula was there too! Was it me or did she seem sober and alert? You go Paula...AA is helping! She was there to say farewell to the only smart judge on the panel...Mr. Simon Cowell.  The show is definitely not going to be the same without him.  Mark my word, American Idol is doomed! I love Ellen but she's not going to save it.  And neither are Kara Dioadadare or dumb Randy.  MARK MY WORDS PEOPLE!!! 

I'm kinda glad that AI is over.  This season was BORING!!!!!!!  And next season is going to be even worse.  But I will of course watch anyway! :)

Till next year American Idol....oh and congrats again Lee!!!  My house is waiting to be painted by you...naked. :)  You naked, not me!

The Bachelorette!!!

So finally, we see Ali again. I fell in love with Ali during Jake's season.  When she was fighting with herself whether to leave or not, I thought "DON'T LEAVE!!! JAKE IS YOUR KNIGHT IN SHINING ARMOR!!" . But after seeing the REAL Jake, Ali totally made the right decision.  Jake is a douche bag and deserves to live forever with Vienna Sausage.  But I digress...

So Monday night was the premiere and it's always one of my favorite episodes. We get to see the 25 new bachelors and see what idiotic cute way they try to make an ass out of themselves a good first impression.  I can't go over each of them because it would take too long and frankly, some I have already forgotten!

So here are the ones that made an impression on me!

#1 Craig Big Hair M. (Do all Craig's have great hair or what?)  Inside joke to my GHP fam!

This guy is a tool!  When asked to write down someone's name who didn't deserve to be here, he didn't want to. OMG grow some you-know-whats and write down a damn name!  No one likes you anyway!  Ok, so besides being a tool, this dude is not cute.  Cassie thinks he looks like Tori Spelling's Dean! LOL!!  I can see that.  What do you think?

Justin AKA Rated R - it should be RATED LOSER!

I didn't like this guy at all.  What a tool.  I hope he breaks his other leg so he has to go home!!! 

And my fave so far is Frank! 

Ok so jumping out of the moon roof was a bit over the top but I kinda enjoyed it.  No one has ever done that before so it made me remember him!  I like his little glasses and he has a cute face.  I think he will last a while.

The Houston weather man was a bust.  Why does everyone from Houston always embarrass us?!?!?!  Oh and the only latino, Roberto was another one I liked.  Although his eyebrows could use a wax...or two.  He's still a cutie and I was actually surprised she gave him the first impression rose.  His "dance lessons" are sooooo typical!!  He should have taught her how to roll a doobie cigar or something COOL!

There seems to be a lot of drama (like always) and I LOVE IT!!!!  I can't wait to see how this plays out!

Ohhhh Lindsey....

What the hell happened to this girl?? One of my favorite movies is Parent Trap!  Oh and let's not forget about Mean Girls!!  When I first watched Parent Trap I actually thought "this girl is going places".  Well the only place she went to is jail.  Geez...what a sad story.

Today a judge ordered that she wear an ankle bracelet that actually con monitor alcohol intake!  how awesome is that???  The ankle bracelet is called SCRAM, which stands for Secure Continuous Remote Alcohol Monitoring.  LOL@SCRAM!! She needs to SCRAM to AA...crazy girl.

Look at her picture. She looks BAD!!!  She's way younger than me and it's bad when I look better than you. 

Quite a difference huh?  SO SAD LiLo!

Hubba Hubba....

This caught my eye so I had to post this. And not to mention DB is the hottest guy E.V.E.R.!!!!!

He was Afghanistan where he visited with his fellow countrymen serving in the region on Saturday.  This guy can't even believe how hot he is.  Look at his face! My face would be a lot closer...or a lot lower. :)  Sorry.....but this man is perfect. 

Here comes the bride....

Well it's not time for the wedding yet, but Kristi, Sara, Cassie, Sofia and I went bridesmaid dress shopping. Well Sofia just went along for the ride. :) And believe it or not, we were successful!!! We had to take Cassie because all the dresses come in a size WAY TOO SMALL for normal people to wear.  Rude. At least that was the case for the first store.  She was our "model". :)  We went to Alfred Angelo afterwards and they have REAL woman sizes there. :)  I even got to try on some. :)  Anyway, I think we decided on a dress that everyone looks good in.   What do you think?

We aren't wearing this color but Sara looked amazing in it!!!

Kristi gets married in January and I know it will get here too soon. I need to lose a million pounds by then. But I'm hungry so I don't know how that's going to work!!!  I will keep you posted on my non-progress. :)

Game Night!

Every other month or so Michele has a game night at her house.  Even though we play the exact same games every time, it is always the best time EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!  And of course everyone is drinking so drunk Jenga is the best!

Have you ever played Pictionary??  Can you believe Saturday night was my first time?!?!?  OMG I LOVED IT!!!  I was scared for my team because I can't draw a straight line with a ruler. No joke. I definitely failed that part in kindergarten.  Anyway, our team ROCKED!!  We killed the other team.  I even overheard Fre tell David (they were on the same team) "it's not fair that we are both on the same team, we are going to KILL them".  Ummmm...someone lied to you Fre!!!!!  Apparently they are pros at this game.  Well again, someone lied to them!  David was a bit upset that he lost. I was a bit happy that we won. And it was my first time! LOVING IT!

Then we played Guesstures and Taboo.  Our team again won at Guesstures!! LOVING IT!! But we lost Taboo.  We had to give them ONE!

If you've never been to a game night, you must.  Watching adults play games and getting drunk at the same time is a recipe for disaster the best night ever!

Grocery Shopping Anyone?

I was talking to one of my friends (who will remain nameless!) about her eating habits at home.  She told me that she never cooks and that her and her significant other eat out EVERY day!  AND she said that she doesn't have groceries in her house either.  Oh AND he prefers to eat out everyday!!!  WTH?  Boogie has a heart attack if we eat out more than twice a week.  BOO TO HIM!  Anyway, she says she doesn't have milk, eggs or bread!  They are a young couple and have no kids so this will change eventually I think.  But who doesn't have milk???? do you eat cereal on Saturday mornings?  Oh and she said she doesn't have cereal either! That is a sin...seriously.

My situation is different so I shouldn't judge.  Not only do I live with two adult children (one is 32 and the other is 20) but hello....have I mentioned that I like to eat too??  I always have snacks, milk, cereal, bread, potatoes, tortillas and weinees in my house at any given time.  Sometimes eggs and weinees for dinner hits the spot!!

How often do you go grocery shopping?  Is your fridge empty???  Do you cook every night???  I'm guessing this is what her fridge looks like.

Oh, and she also doesn't wash his clothes! HOW THE HECK DID SHE MANAGE THAT ONE???  Boogie wouldn't even know how to turn on the washing machine! And if he did figure it out he would totally ruin all of our clothes. But I still love him....promise! 

So to my friend I say...I think you need to marry this one. ;)  He's self sufficient so that means he's a keeper!

Leave my Vending Machine Alone!! has a photo gallery of the "Best/Worst Vending Machine Snacks".  The point of it I guess is to control our lives help us out in our choices.  WHATEVER!! Ok, whenever I hit up the ol' vending machine, my first thought is NEVER "Man, I hope there's some healthy bag of almonds in there". HELL NO!  On my way to the vending machine I think "Man, Theresa better have not bought the last Snicker!"  And I get that we are the fattest best nation in the world and we need to start eating better.  But seriously, how often do you eat out of a vending machine?? Unless you work at a hospital, I am guessing not that much!

Our vending machine has Bugles...MY FAVE!!!!!!! And below are a few of my favorite vending machine buys.  Yes, I go often enough to have favorites. And I don't work in a hospital.  Don't judge me.

The nerve!!!!

You may have read my FB status yesterday but in case you didn't please read this!

So I was at the grocery store yesterday minding my own business (which is rare if you know me!)  I was walking down the bread aisle and I see this group of 3 shopping.  Well the girl has a folder of sorts and is going through and is saying "this is the kind we can get". I'm a pretty smart girl so I figured out that they were on WIC and they were only able to get certain things.  I would have kept going but then I heard one guy say "WE HAVE TO GET THIS KIND OF BREAD???!!!"  "ARE THEY SERIOUS!!??"

First of all, are YOU serious???  The government and my tax dollars are giving you FREE food.  Did you hear what I said? Free, gratis!!  Geez, how dare you complain!! 

And the best part was when I walked to the other aisle and it happened to be the beer aisle and they were picking up a case of Bud Light and Budweiser.  So they can spend their own money on beer, but not on food!! What is wrong with this picture?!?!? OMG I was sooooo angry!! 

So in order to make myself feel better, I bought an elote (corn for you whities) with lots of mayo, butter and chile.  IT WAS DELISH!!  Food always makes me feel better.  And I bought it with my hard earned money thank you very mucho!

I called it!

I didn't watch last night but I know that Casey James with his cute self was sent packing!  He was easy on the eyes, but it was time for him to go.

So the final two are MommaSox and HOT STUFF Lee Dewyze!  Ok so I know I said that Crystal was going to win but I'm going to change my mind.  Yes, I can do that!!  I think Lee is going to take it. I think it's going to be the season shocker.  That would be the only exciting thing about this season because it was B.O.R.I.N.G. 


What the heck am I supposed to watch on Tuesdays and Wednesdays??  When does The Bachelorette start again?

Pet Peeves!

Ok so I have realized that a lot of things bother me!!!  Maybe it's my old age.  But here are my top 3 things that just irk the crap out of me!  What are yours?

#1 - WHY DO PEOPLE PARK LIKE IDIOTS??!?!?!!  OMG, my parking garage is always packed.  So you would think that people would park correctly so that everyone can have a good spot.  Ok, so I know I live in Texas and the majority of people have biggo trucks and SUVs.  BUT OMG!!  Your 5ton pick-up is not going to fit in that narrow spot.  And that doesn't mean you can have two spots.  I have left notes before. And not nice ones. :)  There have been instances where I have had to get in my car through the passenger side. That is NOT ok people.

#2 - IS CHIVALRY DEAD OR WHAT?  I don't care if you are a man or woman, I will hold the door for you.  And even if you are 20 steps behind me, I will wait.  My momma raised me right!  But wtf is up with people these days???  I have literally been right behind someone and saw that the door was about to close.  Instead of the person in front of me holding the door, they run, get through the closing door and let it CLOSE IN MY FACE!! I mean really????? You couldn't put your hand out and hold it open?  Jesus.  Oh, and if my fat ass holds the door open for you, say THANK YOU!!!!!!! Rude.

It's so dead that the last time it was caught on film, it was in black and white!

#3 - SHAKE MY HAND LIKE A MAN!!  I posted this on FB last week, but I hate hate hate when my handshake is more firm than yours. Don't just give me that little weak squeeze! Please do not insult me. This is the South.  Most deals are sealed with a handshake.  Get with it people!!!!!!!!!!

Here are some guidelines in case you need them. :)

Ok I'm bloodpressure is going down as we speak. Thanks for letting me vent. :)

American Idol!

It's getting down to the wire now people...only 3 left and one goes home tonight!!

We all know that Crystal is going to be in the top 2.  But before last night, I didn't know who would be standing next to her.  Well I think it's clear stuff Lee Dewyze! Geez, what paint shop did he work at? I would hire him to paint my house anyday!!  Anyway, he was good last night. I think he did better than (do I dare say it?) Crystal!!!!!!

Casey James with his cute self is going to his casa tonight!!! He didn't do well at all.  I mean he was good, but not good enough to vote for.   Crystal's performances were to be expected. She brought out the harmonica stuck to her face and the guitar.  Don't get me wrong, she sounded great, but is it me or is it getting old? Maybe it's just me that's old. Whatever. :)

So my pick to go home tonight is Casey.  He lasted longer than I thought he would.  I would have voted for Lee but we got home too late. SORRY!!!!

It's going to be good tonight!!!

Today is my MONDAY!!!

Like Michele said, it's always something with me!  Well today was no different.  I had plans on leaving the house early to get my vehicle registration and get my car inspected.  I'm an QUEEN procrastinator and I had to do this today because I have court tonight and of course, the ticket was for my expired stickers.  I know, I'm such a loser.

Anyway, I am getting ready to leave (early!!) and I can't find my keys.  Leti is flipping couch cushions, sweeping under the couch, etc.  Oh, we found Cassie's glasses...YAY!  But of course no keys.  Ugh!!!  So I remembered the last time I had them I was in Cassie's car.  I called Cass, and sure enough, they are in her car!! And where is Cassie?  AT WORK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Geez.  So she offers to come back and drop them (and get her glasses, she's blind as a bat!).  So I leave to go stand in the longest line ever at the Harris County Annex office in Humble.  I thought for sure it would be empty. Who the hell lives in Humble? Well apparently, lots of people.  So I stand in line for almost 2 hours.  My back is loving this.  And then I still had to go get my car inspected. Thankfully that only took 15 minutes. I was the only one there! Thank God for the little place by my house!

So I am at work finally and it's lunch time and I haven't eaten yet!  Oh, and did I mention that I have court tonight!??!?! I HATE going to that place.  I always sit next to the stinkiest person there! It never fails. The last time I sat next to a dude that I swear was playing in dirt and oil all day.  And he was like 50. Well I am praying that I sit next to a Brad Pitt look alike today.  Highly unlikely I know, but a girl can dream right?

At least tomorrow is Friday Eve!!!

Testing, testing.....

I'm testing to see if I can post from my new Blackberry!! How awesome is this?? Now I can blog from anywhere!!!

Loving it!!!

My new Blackberry Tour!!

I finally got a new work phone!!  I've had the old school blackberry for like 3 years now and it was time for an upgrade.  I had the big black brick. It didn't even have a camera!! BOO-BOO!!

But now people...I have the Blackberry Tour and I am IN LOVE!!!  The screen is all nice and shiny, it has a roller ball in the middle and not on the side!!  Check it out!!

Thank you GHP for new and shiny Blackberry.  I think this is Michelle Arnold's old one...I can't wait to see what I find!! :)

Dominos Pizza...WTF!

So everyone knows that I'm fat and love to eat. So of course I get daily emails from Dominos...duh, fat people love pizza!  Anyway, I usually delete them because they are annoying.  BUT, today I got the email and it was in SPANISH!!!!!! 

I know I'm Mexican and I know how to read Spanish but geez....just because my last name is Ortega does not make it ok for you to send me an all spanish email.  If it was Spanglish, I would be ok with it. You know "Ordene tu medium pepperoni pizza to save dinero". I can deal with that...

Maybe I'm overreacting but this chaps my hide!  They even have a website  Check it out!

I must look SUPER DUPER Mexican even via email.  This happens to me on a regular basis in person too!!  It doesn't matter where I am, if a Hispanic person is near me, they automatically start a conversation with me in Espanol.  And yes, I can respond but geez.   Maybe this is what they see when they look at me... :) 

I feel loved!

I arrived to work this morning and found these on my desk!  How pretty are they?!?!?! 

I love gardenias! They were my mommy's favorite flower too!!  Thanks to whomever left them for me! They made my day!


I got an email today from Groupon (sign up, it's great!) for $25 for a "relaxing 60-minute Floast Session" at Float Houston.  WTH is Float Houston??

This is what the website says:
One session in Float Houston's specially designed float tank provides serene isolation, calm silence, and the unmatched comfort of weightless suspension. Let your body rest upon a bed of water keenly tuned to skin temperature (93.5 degrees) and infused with hundreds of pounds of pharmaceutical-grade Epsom salt, which produces a sensation similar to swimming in the salt-rich Dead Sea. With increased buoyancy, you needn't stress about maintaining balance or concentration as your mind is lulled into tranquil lucidity. Float with your tank closed to disconnect the senses from the outside world, or leave it open if desired. Choose to float freely in your swimwear, or float au naturel as Mother Nature intended.

Do people not use swimming pools anymore??  And people will try to make money on ANYTHING!!!!  Ok, so it has salt in the water, big deal.  Go swim in Galveston.  It has salt and even oil these will come out exfoliated and oily!! :)  And then it says "float with your tank closed or open". big is this thing if it has a top on it??  This sounds more and more weird.  My favorite is when it says you can wear clothes or NOT!  Geez...and of course, it's on Bingle and Little York...MY HOOD!!!

Check out the pics.  I think it's super duper weird!! What do you think???

HELP ME!!!!!!!!!!!!

It must be because it's Monday but I have nothing to blog about!!!!!!!!!!! WTH!!!!!!  Someone give me some topics...

Geez I hope I'm not getting old!


The dreaded day of the week is here!! Mondays get here way too fast if you ask me!

I hope everyone had a great weekend! Mine was quiet for the most part.  We stayed in on Friday and Saturday but ventured out into the world yesterday!  It was good to get out of the house and spend time with my girls!!! 

And get this...when I got home, I had brand new blinds in my house!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I couldn't believe it. It's a miracle!! That or the world really is ending. Blame Boogie. It's his fault! :)

Sofia is crawling!!!

So my little girl is not so little anymore. :(  She is getting really close to crawling!! Which scares me because that means she's going to be mobile and walking SOON!  SLOW DOWN SOFIA! 

Check out this video...I have proof!

Sofia Crawling

I love you Viernes!

Yay!! It's here again...thank GOD!  What are your plans for the weekend??  I'm going to go see little Layla today.  She is a week old already! felt like we were waiting for her to get here for FOREVER!  Isn't she precious?!?!?!?!

I know I have other crap to do this weekend but I forget. :)  I hear it's supposed to rain all! But if it does, that just means lazy days for me. :)  Have a great weekend people!! BE SAFE!

Poor babies!!!

I have been meaning to blog about this for a while.  Crazy ass baby names!! We all know that the celebrities are the biggest offenders.  So here are my picks for worst baby names E.V.E.R.

Pilot Inspektor - Child Of: Jason Lee WTF DUDE???!!    Like Lori said, just because you add the "k" in inspector, does not make it ok. I agree with you Lori. 

Jermajesty - Jermaine Jackson and Alejandra Genevieve Oaziaza (previously married to Jermaine's brother Randy)  Ok let's wait on the name but did you just read that?  This lady was previously married to his brother?!?! GROSS!!!!!  These Jacksons have issues.   Now back to the name. Are they serious?!?!?!??!  That's almost as bad at La'Dynasty or otherwise known as LADYNASTY! 

Satchel - Spike Lee and Tonya Lewis Lee. Ok the last name I checked, a satchel was a bag.  So this kid's parents just name it a "fancy bag".  Nice one.

Bluebell Madonna - Geri Halliwell (former Spice Girl)  Ok so maybe because she's not an American, she didn't know this, but hello...BLUEBELL?!?  Like the ice cream??  And Madonna?  I don't think the real Madonna would appreciate that.  Madonna should kick her ass with those man arms of hers.

I guess the world of Jennifers and Amanda's are gone.  And even when people do use "normal" names, they have to screw them all up by adding "Ys" and extra "Ls".  Maybe I'm just old school...but this crap is hilarious to me.   And I really hope none of you plan on naming your baby Jermagesty. I may just slap you. :)

ANTM Finale!!!

Man this season went by really fast!!!  It feels like only yesterday Alasia's wig was on Miss Jay's head and she was fainting when she saw Tyra....ahhh the memories!

Anyway, usually the 2-hours finales are so boring but this one was good!  Two were eliminated after the photo shoot...loved it!!!   They had to be "pretty ugly."  Well this was perfect for Angelea because she is PRETTY F'IN UGLY!! I'm not making it up! LOOK!

The other pictures were good too.  Of course Krista won AGAIN!!!  And of course everyone acted like they were happy but they weren't. She got $3000 worth of jewelry!! And it was hilarious because as she was taking it all out to see, the girls were like "OMG Krista, you got doubles of some stuff!"  Like Krista was really going to give you some of her jewelry!!  I wouldn't have either. Stupid dumb models!

My favorite of the day:
Anyway, long story short, ugly Angelea and plus-sized normal sized Alexandria were sent packing!  I liked Alex but I knew she wouldn't make it to top 2.  Angelea was good at the beginning but then just went downhill fast!  Adios ghetto girl!  So our top 2 was Krista (OF COURSE, she' been winning for the past month!) and Raina...wolf girl!  I love her!

The second hour was of course the Cover Girl commercial and photo shoot.  Good pictures for both (not great), commercial was cute, Seventeen cover photo was fun. Nuff said.  

I was pulling for Raina to win!!  I love her face.  Krista is pretty too and has perfect skin but Raina was my fave.  And just so you know, I called this top 2 as well!

The fashion show was actually fun to watch.  A lot of the old cast members were in it.  How nice of them! Ugly ass Angelea was there and fainting Alasia too! I personally  liked Raina better than Krista but no one asked me my opinion!!!  It was a "fun" runway show and not sooo serious which I enjoyed.  Nice change ANTM!

So Krista ended up winning which I knew she would.  She has been the judges favorite for the past 5 weeks or so, and like I said, she wins EVERYTHING!! So I guess congrats are out to her...I guess!!  Yay Krista...not really.

And then there were 3....

I will admit I didn't sit through the entire hour of last night's show. I got caught up in the two hour finale of ANTM so I changed it just in time to catch the ending.  Anyway, I CALLED IT!!!  And if you look back, I've called the last two as well. I'm getting pretty good at this. 

It was time for you to go BIG GUY! And pun intended with that one.  Of course they show his wife crying the whole time. I get it, she's sad because she just saw her cash cow, more like cash elephant, lose!  And not only did he lose, he's not getting the contract and there goes the new house she wanted!  I would be crying too.  But sorry Mrs. BIG GUY, he really wasn't that great.  He should have left the first time!! 

Is it me or did everyone act like he was going off to war or something?? I mean OMG, everyone was crying, the judges looked like their hearts were breaking.  Simon (who doesn't like anyone) gave him that weird pat he gives to everyone and was actually conversating with him!  WTH?!?!!  Did I miss something????!?!  Maybe he's really nice?

Oh, and his daughter is cute but she looks like a preemie on her daddy's chest!!!  His hands are bigger than her! 

My pick for winner:

Wednesday, May 12, 2010

Top 4!

Doesn't it feel like we've been watching AI for 100 months already???  Well thankfully we are at the top 4 (top 3 after tonight!)  The show was ok..nothing to write home about.  Let's go down the line and see how these fools did.

Jaime Fox was the mentor this week. I was super excited because I loooove him.  But, he was a bore too!  He wasn't funny, his advise was "eh".  Harry Connick Jr was funnier than him! What's up with that?!?!?

First up was Lee Dewyze AKA HOT STUFF!  He sang that one Seal song...I think it's his only good one. :)  It was ok...I agreed with the judges for one.  Next was BIG BIG Mike.  I am so ready for this dude to go home.  He sang Michael Jackson...the song from Free Willy.  Uhhhh weird!  And it was even more weird that Simon didn't even know what Free Willy was! Typical Brit (sorry Allyson!) :)  Ok, before I go on to his performance, does anyone think this fool needs to be wearing clothes that fit him and not ones that fit Ryan Seacrest!!!!  OMG everytime I look at his arms, I'm scared the fabric is going to rip.  I want to know how many cows had to die to make that leather jacket last night!!! 

ANYWAY.....his performance was eh.  How the heck did he make it so far??? I don't get it. I think he is super boring.  I hope he goes home tonight.  Casey James with his beautiful self Sang "Mrs. Robinson".  I thought it was good, but again, nothing spectacular.  Then Mommasox came and of course we all know she's the one that everyone waits for. She has become the Adam Lambert of this season, except without all the makeup, and the hair and the screaming (THANK GOD!)  Anyway, she sang a Kenny Loggins song from Caddyshack!! LOL!! I was like "huh?"  First of all, I LOVE that movie but I thought it was an odd choice.  But as Randy would say "you can sing the phone book and make it sound good"...and this definitely describes MommaSox.  I didn't get it, but she sounded good so I say YOU GO GIRL!

Oh and they also sang duets. I'm guessing this was filler.  But don't get me wrong, they sounded great. A lot better than the solos.  THANK GOODNESS!  So my pick to go home tonight is cow-killing Mike.  I think it's about time. ADIOS SENOR GRANDE!!!!

Poor cows....

Are you a 'Name Brand' Snob??

I have to admit...I can be.  But mostly with food products (surprise, surprise!)  I brought this up at lunch today and I thought "what a perfect blog post!"  Below are items that I will only buy in that brand! I know you have some...share with me people!!!

I will obviously eat other kinds of ketchup, my at my house, I MUST have Heinz!  I think it's the best out there and it tastes so yummy over fries! :)
Bread is also a big deal in my house, but not for me. I will eat anything but Boogie "has" to have Mrs. Bairds. He says it's the freshest.  What do you think?
And a few other products that I will not buy the "off" brand of. :)


The Dr. and I went and had lunch at the BRC...or otherwise known as the Big Red Cock! LOOOVE IT!

This place was divine!!  We had boudin balls for appetizers. They were sooo good.  They were a bit spicy and sweet all at the same time.  I wanted more!  For lunch I had the burger and Michelle had the chicken fried steak. Since today is 'Eat What You Want Day'...we sure did!!  My burger was perfect and Michelle's CFS was even better (she let me have a taste!).  Her CFS had caramelized onions on top and it made for the perfect touch.

And what's a lunch without dessert!!  We had Deef Fried Beignets with a snicker in the middle.  Sounds too good to be true right?  WELL IT WAS!!! OMG these were the best E.V.E.R.  It was kidding (Sorry Boogie). :) 

You must try this place.  It was our first time and I think I can speak for the both of by saying we are going back!!!

This was a fantastic lunch with Michelle.  It was bittersweet because she's leaving...did I mention that before? I don't think I did.  Well she's leaving me!!!! WAA-WAA!

Sniff * Sniff....The Dr is Leaving Me!

Last night was Michelle Arnold's going-away Happy Hour. I didn't want to go because then that meant she was really leaving!!!! WAA-WAA-WAA!!  Ok, let me stop being so dramatic.

The get-together was really nice.  It was at Cork Wine Bar and it was a very nice place. I don't like wine but everyone seemed to enjoy it.  It was great to see familiar faces!!  Look...a Mandy Chris Bilton sighting!!  Dressed fabulously as always.  It's always great to see Chris and hear his wonderful stories.  I see a blog in his future!

I will miss you dearly Michelle!!!!!!!! I hope I can do my work through the tears!!  Ok, so maybe I won't cry everyday, but I will when I pass by your empty office! 

But in all seriousness, I truly am happy for you.  The College Board is extremely lucky that you are going to work for them.  Education is getting a boost as well!  You are going to run that place before it's all said and done...and when that happens, don't forget about all the little people!!!

This is not good-bye...but see you later!  And you better come back and see us! I have to take your "after" picture! LOL
