My little buddy

Saturday, August 08, 2009


Saturday was a lazy day .... my mother and I went to the market and let me tell you, I regretted it! It was soooo incredibly packed. I hate it when it's that busy ... people get stupid in big groups like that. You know, they stop in the middle of the aisle to chat with people instead of moving to the side; they bump into you and glare at you like it's your fault; they can't form a line to save their lives; people butt in front of you like it's their God-given right. All that lovely behaviour. I was gla to get the hell out of there once I got my goodies, like Yummy samosas and fresh BLUEBERRIES!

In the early afternoon, Livy and I went to Lauren's 4th birthday party. It was so good to see Lauren again. The kids had a blast! I decided to include some pics. Ok, I decided to include A LOT of pics. Close to 30.

Emily doing her K-Fed impression.

Look at that shiner!

Three crazy loons!

These two were inseparable the whole time!

Jacker Cracker ... you might notice the mouth is agape ... that's because he was trying to deafen us with his ear-drum splitting scream ... I kid you not!

Bubble blowers

Emily is quite the loner ... that's the way she likes it.

Miz Jess-i-ca

Then came the pinata pounding. They each got a chance to whack the pinata ... then pull the streamers at the bottom. That thing was almost unscathed .... it was indestructable!

Then came the gift opening. I didn't get a lot of good shots ...

This is the framed LO that I made for Lauren.

Then the books - Karma Wilson's Bear Snores On and Bear Wants More.

She's one of my favourite kid's authors ... even I enjoy her books!

Ok, so I got the kid too much candy! But I know she will enjoy it!

From Livy: A Ni Hao Kai Lan backpack with a top and a HUGE box of sidewalk chalk in it!

She's actually cheering about the chalk. What a nut!

From Jessica and Emily: The Chipmunks DVD

From Jack: A plate that you "decorate" with your food. Neat, huh?

Cake Time!

A Barbie cake that was made by cousin Roxanne ... and it was deeee-lish!

Goodbyes from Jessica ...

Like I said ... inseparable.

BB Smackdown!

Ok, I started to wonder if I was watching WWF Smackdown .. then realized that no, no, it was BB.

First of all, shame on Michelle for telling Russell that Chima wanted to backdoor him in the past. It was the truth, yes., but why shame on her? Because by now she whould know that whenever someone tells Russell anything, he immediately goes off - BOOM - he's on the warpath - and what she said would then be revealed.

Second of all, shame on Russell for opening his big, fat mouth! Shut it man! If you want to make a secret alliance with someone (Michelle), you can't throw her under the bus like that douchebag! You keep what's said on the QT.

Third of all, someone needs to spike Chima's juice with a little haloperidol! That girl needs to chill! She's going to have an aneurysm during one of her fits! And it seems like every other sentence begins with "I'm already in a bad mood ..." Too bad! You're in the BB house, suck it up chick!

I am actually happy that Michelle denied everything Russell said ... make Russell out to be the bad guy ... totally throw him under the bus ... it's her best chance of saving herself. Hopefully it works.

Fourth, shame on Ronnie. For so much! For acting like a six year old when he told Michelle she was one of the worst people in the world ... I could almost picture them in elementary school gym class and Ronnie being petulant because Michelle didn't pick him for her team. Oye! For being such a hypocrite while he was talking to Julie. For being a total mood killer for Jordan and Jeff! OMG!!! What is wrong with this guy?

But I do have to say I cheered out loud when JEFF, my cutie-pie, won Coup D'Etat! Boo-yah! America LOVES you!!!!!! Loves you, loves you, loves youuuuuuuuu!

My freaking back!

It's been getting steadily worse for the last two weeks.

It's the same old, same old. Muscle and connective tissue pain from the spine outwards to my hips - basically my whole pelvis. I hurt it shovelling about 10 years ago and it flares up at times. At least I didn't have to go to the ER in an ambulance this time. Hehe.

I do have something to take for it though.

I have an rx for cyclobenzaprine, a muscle relaxant ... half a tab puts me under. Anyway, this rx was written in 2006 for 30 tabs and I was on my last ... so I kept putting off taking the last tablet. But my back was sooooo tight and painful last night that I had to break down and do it.

WOW! What a difference that made! This morning I could actually get up and down, walk around, lift my legs without whimpering like a baby.

But since taking the last tab basically left me prescriptionless, I went down to the walk-in clinic at Brookside (run by my old doctor) to get another script.

I didn't even have to wait! Since it was just a refill, she wrote it out and I was on my way within 10 minutes! It took longer to get it filled at the pharmacy!

Anyway, I am now stocked up again ... for the next three years.

And my back is truly happy about it!

Weasels and Bitches - BB Style

**What a weasel-y bastard Ronnie is! He basically threatened Michelle to use the POV. Jackass! I am soooooooooooo glad she didn't!

**I loved her comment when she held the POV ceremony and asked the two nominees to have their last say .... when she told Ronnie he had a chance to lie to her, or rather speak .... and HE TOTALLY DID when he said he would never expect her to use the POV on him!

**Chima ... I almost wish Michelle had used the POV to take Lydia off so Russell could put that bitch up. There's no other name to call her. She's a bitch. A mofo bitch. She's the kind of person who "kids" with you, laughing at a comment she makes to you ... all the while the comment is a slap in the face.

**Natalie and Jessie are running scared ... MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Run bitches, RUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

**If Lydia can just keep her cool for the next couple of days, she'll make it through Eviction .... but as we all know, Lydia isn't the greatest at self-control.

**Did you know Jordan lives in an apartment with her mom? Jeff lives in the basement of his parents house. I think that's kind of cute. But then, I would, wouldn't I?

More Movies

It's Harry Potter, what can I say? Awesome, awesome, awesome!
This novel was extremely sad ... the movie is too, but there are a lot of light moments, lots of great one liners ... thank goodness!
4 stars out of 5
Umm .... freaking funny movie! But VERY explicit and crude. NOT for a young teen, Nick ... sorry. The content is explicit and at times downright offensive.
Gerard Butler is oh so yummy, as usual. The chemistry between Heigl and Butler is so-so at times, but overall, believable.

3 stars out of 5

Ok .... this movie almost made me pee my pants ... it was hilarious!
Once again, crude and explicit ... but oh so funny! There's a reason why this movie is still out in theatres two months after it's release. I would definitely recommend it.
3-1/2 stars out of 4
