Fridays & The Path to Wisdom

OH-EM-GEE (as the RTR would say) OMG!

It’s FRIDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yes! And I have so much to feel giddy about I fear it will bowl me over. Or something like that.

The sun is up, the air is bracing (well, I think it is, but I’m not sure because I only cracked the door enough to let Her Fatissima out for her morning constitutional). But you know, cold. Like 48 degrees F. Bwhahahaha! Er…I mean Brrrrrrrrr….!

My first cuppa coffee was swell so I think I’ll have another.

As of this writing, Dubyah will only be in office for 347 days, 1 hour, 38 minutes and 56 seconds according to the countdown clock on my monitor.

American Idol will FINALLY be starting the good shows next week — and I can’t wait — instead of all the up close and personal stuff we forget after all the tweeners start calling and choosing their next heart throb with big hair and the shadow of a mustache not quite ready to be shaved.

Marcos, my colorist did not fire me as feared. I just got the usual lecture about needing for my hair to be lighter so my roots won’t show when they, well…show. Duh.

And Dan, the cutter man pretty much cut most of my hairs off. It grows, yanno?Dan the Hair Man gave me a buzz job.

I’m almost ready for the soiree I’m hosting tomorrow night featuring lip smackin’ Greek-Turkish-Moroccan cuisine prepared by myself and my VBF to celebrate the birthdays of two very dear friends (VGF and She Who Has No Blog Acronym) Oh. And their husbands. 😉

I think I recognize a carpet… I can actually see the carpet in the RTR’s room, but that’s only because everything has been moved. Let’s just call it clean for now, mkay? Yah think it’s too late for the Super Nanny? She could time his six foot frame out on one of those little rugs for being such a slob? All his most coveted possessions, just like a hamster keeps them.

Nope. He was a Montessori kid. They use little rugs to work on and define their personal space. Now that I think of it, maybe that’s his dilemma. He had to work on a little rug for so many years, now that he can spread himself out, he certainly does. Okay. So understanding that makes me feel a whole lot more accommodating. All righty then.

Let’s see, what else?

I can actually see the desk now. My desk is cleaner than it’s been in I dunno when. Hell! Even the stairs are clean, because….

…THE CARPET CLEANERS ARE COMING THIS MORNING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, Virginia, there IS a santa claus. Well actually, I’m charging it. Gotta collect those travel points.

Where was I? Oh, the carpet…how long have I been complaining about this stoopid carpet? And just for good measure, The Yackstar made sure she left one more pile for me this morning just to let me know it’s not going to make one bit of difference if I get this dust trap cleaned. It will only LOOK clean.

For about three seconds until she yacks on it again.

But it’s no matter, because I’m thinking this is going to be a spectacular day.

Don’t you?

After all, “When you have developed bodhicitta in your heart, all the good things in life are magnetically attracted to you and effortlessly pour down upon you like rain,” according to Lama Thubten Yeshe.

And I completely believe that.

But I am seriously going to have to work on some of my snarking.

Have an absolutely wonderful weekend.

  • Sounds like a the beginning of a very good weekend, doesn’t it? I am sick and only want to sleep today. Last night I watched three movies because that was the only thing I felt like doing. But tomorrow will be a very good day I can feel it in the air, too :-p

  • Love the new cut!
    Have a fabulous dinner with all your VG/BF’s and their spouses! We are on Paint Duty this weekend (I am sure to prove interesting with two young boys running afoot!)… time to tone down my blue/orange/yellow & red rooms to try to sell. Back to basics for this ol’ house! Have a good one! It’s nice to “hear” you so chipper!

  • Bummer, Ben. Except for that little bug I had during Christmas, I’ve been “healthy.” And watching three movies sounds like just the ticket. I love to do that to recooperate. Here’s to your feeling better tomorrow.

    Hey Ritzy — I know I’m a little slow on the uptake, and vaguely remember your mentioning that you were selling…are you headed to NH? Email me!

    Chefmom, I’m going to try a post over at the foodsite as a sort of before and after. I haven’t done that before…We’ll see if I actually get it done. Suffice it to say that “preserved lemons” didn’t get made so I’m already improvising. So what else is new, right? Sheesh!

  • Have a great dinner – as I’m sure you will have because you are such a fabulous cook! I’m not big on Greek-Turkish-Moroccan cuisine because let’s face it, I’m from Oklahoma and if isn’t a “chicken fried something” I probably don’t know what it was. Okay, okay, it’s not that bad… but yeah, almost.

    Cheers,
    Tammy

  • Hi Tammy — I’ll put up what I can of the dinner on S & V. I usually don’t do a very good job of it, though, because taking photos of food at a dinner party is pretty tacky, even if I know everybody. But it’s so much work, I have to figure it all out. Just think of all that potential blog material going to waste! Bwhahahaha…

    Hey THANKS, Cooper. I keep wondering how much shorter it will get. You think they’d figure that out, yanno?

    Mel! I miss you and gotta get over to your site. It’s warm up where you are, too, right?

    Judy, you gotta click on the link. It’s pretty interesting, but the way I think of it is you reap what you sow…So just picture yourself as a big karma magnet and that’ll work.

  • I’m pretty excited that it was Friday too! We went rock and roll bowling and had some burgers and beer (Erica bowled a 178!!!), went to see the HS state dive meet this morn w/ Haley, going to get a jump on taxes today (helped Erica w/ her 3 returns yesterday), mom is coming into town tonight, watched a good movie last night (Hooligans ?? British football thugs), and we are not even to Sunday yet!! W00t
