"Procrastination isn't the problem, it's the solution.
So procrastinate now, don't put it off" - Ellen DeGeneres

I read this quote and realized I gotta work out. I keep saying it all the time. I keep saying I gotta start working out. I have a membership that I pay for and I don't work out. It's been about three months since I've worked out. And I just don't have the time. Which odd. Because I have the time to go out to dinner. And uh..and watch tv. And clean the backyard. And go through my Barbie stuff. And uh.. try to figure out what to post on my blog everyday...Hummm??

My Sister

So I have this "reader" who says I don't talk much of my extended family, and wants to know if I have any brothers or beautiful sisters. "Really really drop dead beautiful sisters with a perfectly rounded butts?" Well I do, AND! my sister fits that exact description, that's so weird! it's like that reader knew her personally or something...

So where do I begin?
A typical phone conversation between us:

*Phone Rings*
Me: Hello?
Sis"E": You never pick up your phone anymore, I hate you! I had something really important to tell you the other day but now I forgot.
Me: Why? What happen?
Sis"E": I don't did I tell you that I've had a headache for 3 days now and I think I have a tumor?
Me: It's not a tumor...(said like this " Too-Mah")
Sis"E": Yes it is!
Me: ... *watching Food Network*
Sis"E": ... I'm really tired right now, and I don't feel like talking. I just wanted to tell you that you never pick up your phone anymore.
Me: ... *still watching Food Network*
Sis"E": Ok you're boring and I'm wasting to much energy to talk to you right now, you're probably watching T.V. Love you bye.
*phone hangs up*
Me: ...

What would I do without you? Who else can call me (or me call you) and NOT feel like talking to each other? but knowing all we needed was to hear each other's voice for 5 seconds to make us all fuzzy inside.

So here's to you, you wonderful, perfect,
darling, sweet, generous, adorable sister!

Aries Drinking style:

Impulsive Aries people like to party and sometimes don't know when to call it a night. Their competitive streak makes them prone to closing time shot contests. They're sloppy, fun drunks, and they get mighty flirty after a couple tipples. Getting Aries people drunk is a good way to get what you want out of them, should other methods fail. Aries can become bellicose when blotto, but they will assume that whatever happened should be forgiven (if not forgotten) by sunrise. They can be counted on to do the same for you -- so long as you haven't gone and done anything really horrible to them last night, you sneaky Gemini.

Taurus Drinking style:

Taurus prefers to drink at a leisurely pace, aiming for a mellow glow rather than a full on zonk. Since a truly intoxicated Taurus is a one-person stampede, the kind of bull-in-a-china-shop inebriate who spills red wine on white carpets and tells fart jokes to employers, the preference for wining and dining (or Bud and buddies) to body shots and barfing is quite fortunate for the rest of us. This is not to say that the Bull is by any means a teetotaler -- god, no. A squiffy Taurus will get, er, gregarious (full of loudmouth soup, some would say) and is extremely amusing to drag to a karaoke bar when intoxicated.

Gemini Drinking style:

Gemini’s can drink without changing their behavior much -- they're so naturally chatty and short-attention-spanned that it's just hard to tell sometimes. They can amaze you by conversing with finesse and allusions, then doing something to belie an extremely advanced state of intoxication, like puking in your shoe. Gemini’s possess the magic ability to flirt successfully (and uninfuriatingly, which is very tricky) with several people at once. They like to order different cocktails every round -- repetition is boring -- and may create a theme (like yellow drinks: beer, sauvignon blanc and limoncello) for their own amusement.

Cancer Drinking style:

Cancer is a comfort drinker -- and an extra wine with dinner or an after-work beer or six can be extra comforting, can't it, Cancer darling? Like fellow water signs Scorpio and Pisces, Crabs must guard against lushery. Cancers are brilliant at ferreting out secret parties and insinuating themselves on VIP lists -- and, in true Hollywood style, Cancers are never really drunk; instead, they get "tired and emotional" (read: weepy when lubricated). But there's nothing better than swapping stories (and spit) over a few bottles of inky red wine with your favorite Cancer. Even your second-favorite Cancer will do. The sign also rules the flavor vanilla, and you'd be adored if you served up vanilla vodka and soda.

Leo Drinking style:

Leo likes to drink and dance -- they're often fabulous dancers, and usually pretty good drinkers as well, losing their commanding dignity and turning kittenish. Of course, they're quite aware they're darling -- Leos will be Leos, after all. They generally know their limit, probably because they loathe losing self-control. When they get over-refreshed, expect flirting to ensue -- and perhaps not with the one what brung them. But Leo's not the type to break rules even when drunk, so just try to ignore it and expect a sheepish (and hung over) Lion to make it up to you the next day.

Virgo Drinking style:

Cerebral Virgos are compelled to impose order onto their bender. Their famously fussy quest for purity could lead to drinking less than other signs, sure -- but it could also lead to drinking booze neat, to sucking down organic wine or just to brand loyalty. They rarely get fully shellacked -- but, oh, when they do! Virgo's controlled by the intellect, but there's an unbridled beast lurking within, and they let it loose when walloped. It's dead sexy (and surprisingly unsloppy). As one Virgo friend used to declare, "I'm going to drink myself into a low level of intelligence tonight." A toast to the subgenius IQ!

Libra Drinking style:

"I'm jusht a social drinker," slurs Libra, "it's jusht that I'm so damn social?" Libra loves nothing more than to party, mingle and relate to everyone. Whether dipped in favor of Good Libra (with Insta-Friend device set to "on") or heavier on the Evil Libra side (they are little instigators when bored), the Scales can really work a room. Charming as they are, Libras are notoriously lacking in self-control, however, which can get them into all sorts of trouble -- including wearing their wobbly boots waaaay too early in the evening, flirting with their best friend's beau or even blacking out the night’s events entirely. Oops!

Scorpio Drinking style:

Don't ever tell Scorpios they've had enough, for they'll smirk at you and quietly but intentionally keep tippling till they're hog whimpering drunk, out of 100-proof spite. Scorpios like to drink, and screw you if you have a problem with that. Most of them see the sauce as something to savor in itself, and not as a personality-altering tool -- though if depressed, self-loathing Scorps seek total obliteration. But generally, they're fascinating drinking pals, brilliant conversationalists and dizzying flirts. They also remember everything -- especially what you did when you were blitzed. Only drink with a Scorpio who likes you!

Sagittarius Drinking style:

When buttered, they'll spill all your secrets and many of their own. Tactlessness aside, Sagittarius is just plain fun to drink with. This is a sign of serious partying (what else would you expect from the sign of Sinatra, Keith Richards, the Bush twins and Anna Nicole Smith?). They're the people who chat up everyone in the room, then persuade the entire crowd to travel somewhere else -- like a nightclub, or a playground, or Cancun. Good-natured hijinks are sure to ensue (including a high possibility of loopy groping; spontaneous Sag is a brilliant booty call).

Capricirn Drinking style:

Capricorn is usually described as practical, steadfast, money-hungry and status-thirsty -- no wonder they get left off the astrological cocktail-party list. But this is the sign of David Bowie and Annie Lennox, not to mention Elvis. Capricorn is the true rock star: independent, powerful and seriously charismatic, not too eager to please. And if they make money being themselves, who are you to quibble? But just like most rock stars, they're either totally on or totally off, and they generally need a little social lubricant to loosen up and enjoy the after party, especially if they can hook up with a cute groupie.

Aquarius Drinking style:

Aquarius and drinking don't go together that well (except for water, that is). They have an innate tendency toward know-it-allism, and if they get an idea while sizzled, they're more stubborn than a stain or a stone. If they're throwing a party or organizing an outing, however, they're too preoccupied with their duties to get combative -- and they make perfectly charming drunks in that case. Fortunately, they're usually capital drink-nursers. They also make the best-designated drivers (if you can get them before they start raising their wrist): Aquarius is fascinated by drunken people and capable of holding interesting conversations with soused strangers while sober.

Pisces Drinking style:

If you're a Pisces, you've probably already heard that you share a sign -- and an addictive personality -- with Liz Taylor, Liza Minelli and Kurt Cobain. Not only do Pisces like to lose themselves in the dreamy, out-there feeling that only hooch can give, but they build up a mighty tolerance fast. Who needs an expensive date like that? On the other hand, they’re fabulously enchanting partners, whether in conversation or in crime. With the right Pisces, you can start out sharing a pitcher of margaritas and wind up in bed together for days. The phrase "addictive personality" can be read two ways, you know.

*15 Minutes of Fame*

So yesterday I was contemplating a few blog topics for future posts, so I asked the girls if they had any ideas or suggestions for me. Well they both agreed any post with them in it, is of course their favorite. (shocker)

So I retreated to my room to watch my HGTV shows, unwind and relax before I had to make dinner, when my youngest, let's just call her "CD" (Conceited Daughter) came into my room and we had a conversation that went something like this:

CD: Mommy, I think you should do a full story on ME! *smiling*

Me: Oh yeah? What should I write about you? *inquisitive look on face*

CD: I don't know? Anything! *smiling*

Me: ... *blinking & staring*

CD: *giggling* What mommy? *laughing*

Me: ...

CD: *laughing*

Me: So it doesn't matter what I write, you just want me to write about you?

CD: Yes! *smiling*

Me: Ok.

CD: Ok!!! *excited, turns and walks out, closes the door*

About 15 seconds later...

CD: And you could put up a picture of me too! *smiling, closes the door*

Yummy Food & Fun Chilaxin'

So last night I hung out with Himbo, we did a little shopping and then stopped and picked up some yummy yummy Thai Food!

*Pineapple Fried Rice, Chow Mien Noodles, Kung Pao Spicy Beef, Spring Rolls & Sweet Sticky Rice with Mango...I'm a fan, love the Pina-Rice!*

After stuffing ourselves full of Thai goodness we hit the Jacuzzi, were I met Bob & Lynn (Himbo's neighbors) ... Bob & Lynn are special people. We both sat there for about 2 hours humoring them when they gave us "hot tips" on where to go for drinks, such as a real expensive high class bar at the Hyatt, where they would charge us about $8 for a Bloody Mary and a Strawberry Daiquiri, BUT if we mentioned their name to the bartender he might give us a discount you know!
Poor Bob & Lynn, they had no idea of the two snobs they were talking too who were simply nodding their heads agreeing with everything they said, all the while thinking of Boursin Cheese & Crackers and that bottle of Wine from Argentina waiting for them back inside!

... after hearing enough of how Bob is not afraid of "them gangs" out here in California, but of "them terrorists" who can blow up (as he said) the entire complex we were in last night with a empty tube of toothpaste filled with gun powder. You know, like the one he made before for military purposes... (which I'm sure was not a figment of his imagination!) We retreated back inside to finish watching Will & Grace...(I love Jack) and after watching a few fabulous episodes and deciding that Himbo absolutely needs a Cher doll like Jack, we will totally take Himbo's Cher Doll and my James Dean Doll to dinner with us too!

As Jack would say:
"You're my new best friend.
Call me every five minutes."

What's Your Most Favorite Smell in the World?

Don't be shy...
Tell me, what's your most favorite smell in the world?
(It could be anything...just keep it clean all you dirty birdy's)

Quality Time

So I had a 3-day was nice. Didn't really do much of anything in particular, I took it easy, didn't make plans with anyone, enjoyed hanging out with the girls, and even got in some quality time with my Momma. Here's a complete run-down of my entire weekend...

My Hubby's BFF came into town, so he went out and played with the boys all day & night. Meanwhile back at the zoo me & my girls went on a Barbie mission to Brea. Yes to Brea, since I can't go on Ebay during work hours Craig's List is my new best friend and that's why we went all the way out there to buy Barbies! (Nut-ting Tu Do) on the way home we spotted El Torito and realized we wanted Fajitas and Deep Fried Ice Cream, so we loaded up my Momma and started our girls night out!

After we ate ourselves into a food induced coma we attempted to walk it off at The Block, which was a bad idea because I went to visit James (who's James you ask?) Well he's a Barbie of James Dean that I fell in love with and feel to guilty to spend $100 to bring him home...I had to leave him once more, I was sad.

Anyway we went to Borders and loaded up on some new reading material, the girls got a few books and my Momma even got a few Silvia Brown books! I'm reading The Wonder Spot by Mellisa Banks, so far I'm a fan. After dinner and shopping we went home watched some MTV America's Best Dance Crew (GO JABBAWOCKEEZ) then realized we just didn't want to be stuck at home!

FRESH & EASY here we come...I love that store, they carry my Boursin Cheese Spread you know! After loading up on Organic White Cheddar Rice Puffs, Cheese & Crackers other Groceries and the infamous Creamsicles we commenced to cruising, we drove for 3 hours straight from one end of the city to another with no particular destination in mind we just felt like opening up the sun roof rolling down the windows and singing every song on our CD's that were playing, inhaling the Creamsicles we just bought at F&E so they wouldn't melt, while our hair blew in the wind... it was peaceful regardless of the music blaring,... all was right with the world.

Me & The Girls got ditched again, Hubby ran off to go shooting and arrange a tattoo session... the only thing we're bitter about is the shooting part. I heart shooting and so do the girls. We used to go the the range quite a bit, Hubby has a 44.(mini hand cannon) and I have a ... Did I mention that I love shooting?

Anyway, even though we didn't get out of the house at all we still had a good time, the girls were bitten by the spring cleaning bug so I just relaxed in their room while they cleaned and's nice to see them picking up my sarcastic sense of humor and neurotic cleaning obsessions (except for my room *wink*) by the time we realized it was already 8pm and Hubby was homeward bound he picked us up and we went for a late-night food session at In & Out AND Wendy's for those sweet sweet Frosty Milk Shakes, Hubby said how fat do we seem right now, driving all over just for a food fix?!

Sunday (Easter Sunday):
To honor our holy day, (you know, the day the Easter Bunny layed chocolate eggs and resurrected our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ) we watched Alias all afternoon, I napped, cleaned some of my Barbie stuff, had my Pecan Cluster Blizzard that I've been craving all week long, and smelled the wonderful smell of BBQ!

Let me tell you, all our neighbors were going to town on those of course not to be out done we put our meat on the grill! (hehehe I said meat) it was delicious!

Thursday, March 20, 2008


So these last few days me & my hubby have been completely obsessed with Alias thanks to's gotten to the point when I've been dreaming of the show EVERY night! I feel like I haven't gotten a good night's rest because my dreams are so action packed! Oh well we are now on season 4 so sadly my restless night's will be coming to an end shortly.

Top 5 Movies Quotes or Scenes

I forwarded this junk e-mail the other day but no one has replied to me (sad) so I figured I'd post it, and see if anyone would finally decide to reply.

Post your most memorable lines or scenes from 5 different movies, if you could list which character said it and to whom.

Here are my Top 5, let me know what are yours!?

Tai: Do you think she's pretty?
Cher: No, she's a full-on Monet.
Tai: What's a Monet?
Cher: It's like a painting, see? From far away, it's OK, but up close, it's a big old mess. Let's ask a guy. Christian, what do you think of Amber?
Christian: Hagsville.
Cher: See?
Christian: They're charging for brewskies. Pass me a fin, I'll pay you back?
Cher: Sure.
Christian: Thanks.
Tai: Oh, he's so cute.
Cher: Oh, my God.
Cher: Do you see how he's falling in love with me? I mean, look how he ignores every other girl

(Dreams For An Insomniac)
Frankie: Anything less than mad, passionate, extraordinary love is a waste of time. There are too many mediocre things in life to deal with and love shouldn’t be one of them. Settle for anything and you’re doomed. My Biggest fear in life is being mediocre. We can’t be willing to settle for anything, especially for less than we deserve, we watch other people live out their dreams instead of investing in dreams of our own. We should strive or greatness – life is too short.

(Shall We Dance)
Beverly Clark: We need a witness to our lives. There's a billion people on the planet... I mean, what does any one life really mean? But in a marriage, you're promising to care about everything. The good things, the bad things, the terrible things, the mundane things... all of it, all of the time, every day. You're saying 'Your life will not go unnoticed because I will notice it. Your life will not go un-witnessed because I will be your witness'."

Dr Evil: “Who throws a cupcake? …honestly!”

(Pulp Fiction)
Jules: There's a passage I got memorized. Ezekiel 25:17. The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of the darkness. For he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know I am the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon you. I been sayin' that shit for years. And if you ever heard it, it meant your ass. I never really questioned what it meant. I thought it was just a cold-blooded thing to say to a motherfucker before you popped a cap in his ass. But I saw some shit this mornin' made me think twice. Now I'm thinkin': it could mean you're the evil man. And I'm the righteous man. And Mr. 9mm here, he's the shepherd protecting my righteous ass in the valley of darkness. Or it could be you're the righteous man and I'm the shepherd and it's the world that's evil and selfish. I'd like that. But that shit ain't the truth. The truth is you're the weak. And I'm the tyranny of evil men. But I'm tryin', Ringo. I'm tryin' real hard to be a shepherd.


So lately I've become quite a fan of the blog world, so I decided to have a crack at it myself. Well maybe it's more of a daily journal for myself or even a simple way to keep friends & family updated on my sometimes pretty uneventful life. I'm not an inspiring writer nor do i posses the talents to try and pose as one, so forgive me if this is not your typical blog. I want to post random thoughts, daily events, some pictures maybe and quizes for all my peeps! Ok here it goes...
