Its Still Monday?

Tomorrow, I'll attempt coherent post. Today? Not so much. I've had a lot of stuff floating around inside my brain.

The meeting was good. People nodded their heads and found themselves in general agreement. If you're Fred Durst, you might call it "agreeance" (am I the only one who remembers this obscure reference?) but you'd probably be more concerned about the porn tape of you floating around the Internet. Speaking of...I knew all that aggression had to be a result of some type of inferiority complex. Limp bizkit indeed.

Peeled tomatoes feel like brains. I don't really know what brains feel like but I'm guessing that they feel a lot like the peeled tomatoes I diced last night for pasta my wife was making last night. I hope never to actually verify this.

My wife needs training wheels. Beth fell down for two last night and freaked my ass out. She's pretty sure Lima Bean enjoyed the ride. I've now made it pretty clear I'm taking over most of the duties around the house that require walking, lifting or any other gravity-defying. Now, if I could only get her to listen to me!

There goes the neighborhood. Yes, the neighbors were at it again. There was major yelling...and throwing of things that broke a car window (their own) and then she got the kids together and took his truck. It was an impressive display of fortitude until she came back again for some more yelling. Then left again. And then came back.

Weathermen suck. Don't those two words really say it all? By all accounts, the world should have come to an abrupt, nippy end around 4 this morning. For those of you playing at home, it didn't. All this hype about weather events and snow emergencies and storm tracking...sheesh. Get over it. Its effin' weather.

Enough of me with the venting. Am tired.

my head feels so congested i'm taking the night off from class. i know i'll pass out on my homework and start drooling or something because i am THAT drowsy from the cold medicine. i'm glad to hear beth and lima bean are ok though! i told her i was going to make you hold her hand whenever she goes up or down stairs.

"Limp Biskit indeed."

Heh heh heh heh heeeeeeeeeh.

I was seriously repulsed when I saw it myself.

At least this time, they didn't throw around the term "life-threatening weather situation"... Stupid Ken doll weather men.

Right about the weathermen - one of them was actually bragging on a local station this morning that they were right. Isn't that the whole idea?

Sorry you have such unsavory neighbors.
Glad your wife and child-to-be are Ok.
Good that the meeting turned out well.

And good luck driving to work tomorrow. I don't know about your area, but we're supposed to have snow all night.

shock of shocks. i actually made it home in less than an hour. even on good weather days this very rarely happens. i think people expected the worst and stayed home. it was great! ten inches of snow should be predicted every night! and can you believe some school districts were closed before the day started? i was floored. man, sometimes i miss being a kid.

make sure you have enough bread (or whatever) for the "storm" ;)

tomatoes and brains, sure if you say so....just have your wife wear a padded suit at all times just to be safe, lol!!

Posted by: lizabetty at February 28, 2005 07:19 PM

ohhh, and you should videotape those neighbors...then send it off to jerry....he could ambush them and have them come to his show as guests!! they would prob be very excited for the chance to be on tv!!

the balance of a pregnant woman is all out of whack. I fell ALL the time. Tell Beth to be careful!

Posted by: Snidget at February 28, 2005 07:24 PM

Firstly, any band with the word "Limp" in the name just doesn't do it for me. It's an automatic skip over. As for Beth falling all over the place, do they make emergency air bags for pregnant women? Attachable of course to the area where she falls the most (mine was my bum). lol

I'm glad the meeting went well. I'm indifferent on the snow issue, because I'd decided early last week that today would be a good day to call in sick. I knew I wasn't going to work, regardless of the suckitude of our weathermen :)

disappointingly Matt had to work all day. It was ugly driving home up here. We got it off the mountains, and it was nasty!

You know what though, I made sure I had enough fudge pops to makeme through. Tis all that matters. Fudge pops. I mean really. We have condoms and fudge pops, what else do we need.

Ok, that's sounded weird.

um... hello? Have we met? I'm pretty sure I'm knocked up with your baby... please stop by and grab those 3 loads of laundry for me, k? And while your here maybe you could mop the bathroom? Thanks.

I very much hate that it's still Monday and I'm still working!

yeah. i am so disappointed with the weather turn out. and with my lack of a snow day. *grumble*

Posted by: Judy at March 1, 2005 08:20 AM

Great news about the meeting!
Oh, I sure hope that Beth takes it easy! I would have paid to have someone help me out!
Don't know what to say about the snow issue. I really have a hard time sympathizing with weather issues, well, living in an almost year round oven and all. I'd trade for snow any day.....
Peeled tomatoes? Na, not so much. More like old tofu that has started to harden.
Hope (tuesday) today is better for you!

My son read somewhere that the human brain smells like bleu cheese. He tells it to everyone he meets.

Be careful, Beth!

Sorry bout your neighbors. If I you and was brave enough I'd go ask them to keep it down b/c my wife is pg and all that screaming isn't good for Lima Bean. But then again, I wouldn't want you to put your life on the line like that. Yikes.

Oh, and the weather men/women? They do the exact same thing down here during hurricane season. They'll predict the end of the world and ohmygodyou'dbetterbattendownthehatches and all we get is a little tiny rain shower. Weather is always exaggerated. It comes with the territory.

Apparently my coffee hasn't kicked in yet. I meant to say, "If I were you..." *sigh*

they cancelled seminars at work that were to be given on tuesday because of the 'severe weather' the boston area was going to experience. there was all this hype about how bad the evening and following morning commute would be. it didn't actually start snowing until 8pm and the raods were all clear this morning when i got into work. i wonder how many more times they will cry wolf.

Posted by: chlamygirl at March 1, 2005 10:12 AM

The human brain is actually the consistency of a fine custard and not much like a peeled tomato - though I hate to disappoint you.

and I try to dump my shitty mood while you entertain me...

sheesh!

Posted by: stinkerbell at March 1, 2005 04:04 PM

Next time it gets bad with your neighbors ask the local PD to tell the white trash to be civil because you want the Lima Bean to WANT to come out!
