I do everything on the right. I chew my food on the right, I play games right handed, I write with my right hand, I pick things up with my right hand far more than with my left (unless it's my babe in because I'll need my right hand to do stuff with while I hold him), I sleep on the right side of the bed on my right side (at least that's how I end up waking up), I sit on the right side of the couch if I'm sitting with someone else, I prefer the right side of a table in a restaurant, and when we're at home, babes eats to my right so that I can help him with my right hand. I'm sure you get the point.
But the little quirk is that I walk on the left. I'm not at all comfortable walking on the right. If I get myself into a situation where I'm walking on the right, I'll literally stop, let my companion take a few steps and dash in behind then replacing myself on their left side. This causes me some grief when walking in a group of people... if that group of people don't know I have to be on the left.
So there. What do you think about me now?!
P.S. Also wanted to mention this morning that it seems that I'm not getting back to comments as quickly as I used to, but wanted to reassure you that I do eventually, so go back and check!

I want to send out Christmas Cards again this year, but some of you haven't participated in my little Send Me a Photo of you request, game, whatever you want to call it. For those of you who have short memories like me, please go back to Sunday, August 05, 2007 and read the Little But Good Thought Entry. I'd link directly to it here, but my blogger is retarded and won't let me (honestly).
So here's your last chance, my very sweet little international lovebuds... I'd love your photo to add to my album and then I can reciprocate with a holiday type card come closer to December! What do you think??
Mhhhmmmm... I thought you'd think it was a good idea! Afterall, who doesn't like to receive holiday mail???

I LOVE the dentist. I just love going and getting my teeth cleaned. Having the hygienist work on removing whatever tartar there may be built up since the last time. My teeth feel AMAZING! I can clearly and distinctly feel each tooth, they are all super clean and shiny... just so delicious!!
She used a new product on me today, called dental tape. It's like extremely thin sandpaper that you stick inbetween your teeth like floss and then you pull it back and forth as if to sand off any remaining tartar from the edges of the teeth. I loved it! I wish I could buy some for the home!
Okay, now that you know I'm a freak of nature who adores her dentist's office... I'll just go, smiling and laughing all the way... errr.. to... um.. wherever I'm going!

This morning I was on the phone with someone (who shall remain nameless) and they were going pee as I was on with them and I could clearly hear them peeing! It seemed soooo..... PERSONAL and PRIVATE! And while it sounded like a really good pee, it's just not something I should be overhearing! LOL Now, I don't care if someone's been to the toilet with me, as long as I can't hear the expulsion of waste, no pssssss sounds or grunting... I can handle hearing the flush, but not the.. *ehem* drainage! It's kind of funny in a way, I suppose, but I think I might be scarred for life now and equally so, it's going to be hard for me to ever go pee with someone on the phone ever again. Sorry, for anyone who calls me, you'll just have to wait outside for the minute or two that I have to do my business!
OMG, I need to know... have you ever heard my end of this? Have I been trying to be all quiet and secretive to no avail??

Oh My God!!! Look at what I did!!! WEEEEEEEEE!
To explain the meaning of it... the kanji symbol is "LOVE", how I aim to treat all, with dignity, love and respect. My son is symbolized by the handprint! The butterfly is a symbol of freedom and life. Love is the central theme because it is symbolic for love of life and love of family. And the flourishes and dots? Well, those are to make it super feminine and pretty, of course!
What do you think?
And, for the bonus, check out Si's blog and see his newly aquired tattoo too!! He's about a week and a half ahead of me, but how cool is it that two friends who are so far apart can get tattoos done near the same time! WOOHOO!

But now I have to go sleep off this buzz and hope that I can both speak and hear inthe morning.

I grab the magazine while my stylist finished up what she's doing in the other room and begin to pass the time flipping through the pages. And then all of a sudden I hear one of them say: "Hey, sweetie... who do you think is more handsome?"
I immdeiately think to myself "Seriously? Neither one of you is good looking and your over zealous macho attitudes are driving me insane", but instead I just look up and look at both and insist that I just can't make a call like that. But that wasn't good enough for them. Then it was "Oh, come ON! You HAVE to just TELL US! Come on, come on! COME ON, who's more handsome?!? Just tell us, you won't offend us, we promise!!!"
So I said that I couldn't tell with their sunglasses on, they removed them and I very slightly motioned towards the shorter less of an ass guy. Said nothing, just nodded my head in his direction.
the response was nothing short of him literally jumping off the sofa, screaming out: "YEEEEEES!!! HA! Take THAT, you biaaatch!!! I'm more handsome than YOU!" And I swear to God I thought he was going to start pulling out the dance moves, but THANKFULLY the stylist came walking around the corner just then and they settled down.
Later, I learned they were both there to get their eyebrows waxed.
All I could think was a sarcastic "Wow..."

June 21 - July 21
Don't let another day go by without patting yourself on the back for being the incredible person you are, dear Cancer. It could be that you are constantly striving for perfection, but never satisfied with all the work you've done and the person you really are. Remember that the cleanliness of your house is not a reflection of the cleanliness of your soul. Give yourself a break.
Nature is so ... perfect.

Like little tiny doors are closing everytime I move around.
I don't know if anyone else can hear it or if only I can because it's so close to me, but I'm confused on whether I should capitalize on the sound somehow or just ignore it.
I'd wear a non-underwire bra, but I don't like the look they give... the lift is different and you don't end up with as nice a shape.
Anyway, that's what's going on in my world and mind today!

Oh, I was plenty busy yesterday, had family come over, lots of playing and visiting... but I stayed in my jammies.
There was a point in the evening after supper that threatened my jammy bliss, when we were debating going to the park, but I suggested just playing on our deck and in the yard instead... YES! Success! An entire day of jammies.
It felt good. Try it sometime!

My sis saw it with her mom-in-law back when she lived in Winnipeg and I remember her saying something like how she was a tad bit embarrassed yet grossly engaged at the same time. Well, I might have added in the grossly part. But she was fascinated by it, and damnit! I wanna be fascinated too! At the very least, will someone go to the show nearest them and bootleg it for me? Apparently, I've forgotten about the wonders of penis manipulation for too long and missed my opportunity to see them when they passed through Edmonton or Calgary this year in May.
Some day, people.... some day. *sigh*
Question: Why are all of the holidays "happy", but Christmas is "Merry"?
This, of course, was followed up by as complete a listing of all the holidays as we could think of, trying to disprove our theory. But after a half an hour of spitting out things like: Happy Hannauka, Happy New Years, Happy Anniversary, Happy Halloween, Happy St. Patrick's Day... I mean then list just goes on and on and on, we couldn't think of any. Not one single other Merry holiday!
Why is that??
And why did I title this entry "rubber bands"? Because I just couldn't think of another one!

I don't like sports. There. I've said it. I'm a girl. Cut me some slack, would ya?
BUT... (pay attention here)... I love movies about sports. Especially if they are movies about true life sport things. Tonight I watched We Are Marshall, and that, my friends, was a great movie! For those of you who don't know, it's about the University football team that in 1970 almost all perished in a plane crash, and the impact it had on the town, the surviving team members and how they went about rebuilding and honoring those they lost. Really, a great film about starting over, triumphs and courage. It was one of those movies that gave me that "I'm choked up but not gonna cry, damnit" lumps in my throat for the majority of the movie, but had me cheering at the same time. Rent it, if you haven't seen it yet. Sports fanatics, you'll probably love it. Other people, just watch it for the history at the very least!
Jules :Ostill lumpy!

It's sad... but this, my dear friends, is a true story.
Grunty, as you may well know, is going through treatments for Hodgkins Lymphoma and in order to help pay for medical things and life things during his long stint with chemo, he's developed a store for all of his Gruntonians. There is a percentage of the $$ spent at his store that goes towards the cafepress, but the rest goes to him...
So, I thought I'd share his store link with you in hopes you'd be able to spend a few bucks to help him make it through harsh times like these! Welcome to Gruntonia!

Oh Aunt Jemima
You've brought me to the light
Now I want to eat pancakes day and night
Before you arrived, I'd been so lost
I'd have to buy them, at any cost
Now you're here and I'd even say
That I can, without even measuring, make pancakes my way
I love you, Aunt Jemima, I really do
And the more I make pancakes, the more this is true!

To play this game, all you must do is explain what your most common writing mistake is. Then, you simply tag five individuals for the meme. Those five people will, in return, tag five more people. Ultimately, readers should see a tapestry of common grammar and spelling mistakes. Therefore, anyone that is feeling ashamed of their errors will feel a bit more confident and secure.
My most common writing mistake is combining words that aren't supposed to be combined. And the most common of my most common mistakes are the words: noone and alot. I know they're supposed to be no-one and a lot, but I just always seem to connect them together! I don't think it's detrimental to my writing, but I'm sure it annoys a few of you!
I'll tag Alekx, Billy, Blue, Newzie, and Christopher... Just because!

I never wear gloves. I know, I know... I should. But I just LOVE the feeling of nature in my hands. Be it dirt, or leaves, or grass, or sand... whatever. I love it! Wearing gloves while gardening is like a guy having to wear a rubber during sex. They still have some feeling, but it's just not quite the same! My hands, as a result, end up all rough. They require some serious after gardening attention. I have to pumice them to get them back to being smooth and then lotion the hell out of them. But it works to regain their beauty, so I just keep doing it in the nude. I don't think I'll ever stop. I need the connection.
I pulled up all of my annuals yesterday. My garden looks so bare and lonely now. It's a sad, sad realization that winter is on it's way. It depressed me, actually. We don't really get much for Fall here, we tend to have about a month and a half of fall and then BOOM, winter hits. Yuck. I guess the upside is I don't have to worry about what I look like in my shorts and tanks for a while!
