the good

sleeman 20th anniversary ale. also, their story is a good one. used to sell illegally to Al Capone during prohibition. and got caught. and shut down for 50 years.

a weekend forecast of hot, hot and more hot.

only FIVE more carpools. and then no more until SEPTEMBER!

Indiana Jones Lego. dude is WAY hotter than Harrison Ford.

actually making a play at second base instead of standing there and doing nothing (or worse…NOT making the play)

Obama. Even though he said, “I had A uncle who was one of the, who was part of the first American troops to go into Auschwitz and liberate the concentration camps..” so, yes…he got his grammar wrong (it’s AN uncle) and he got the entire concentration camp wrong (his uncle liberated Ohrdruf) i still adore him. and i will still be voting for him. (yes, i can still vote in US elections)

red patent leather heels.

the bad

my missing appendix

Justin Timberlake’s Love Stoned playing on repeat. thanks, miss Emily (although, i will admit, it’s a step up from the Rihanna crap she used to make us listen to…)


someone turning off the lights in the bathroom at work. while i was IN THERE. seriously, i understand we all want to conserve energy. but most of us like to pee with the lights on!

flashing my heiney to a couple of unsuspecting civilians while running to pee mid-ultrasound. was not pretty, i tell you.

the bizarre

Isabella is convinced that she has a baby living in her stomach. and she talks to it. this morning, she’s lying next to me in bed and i hear her, as she rubs her stomach, “don’t cry baby. it’s okay. we’re watching Cinderelli”

um, when did Popeye’s Chicken and Biscuits become Popeye’s Chicken and Seafood??? what the fuck? chicken and seafood? seriously?


  1. Was Popeye’s ever Chicken and Biscuits in Canada? I don’t remember that.

  3. Appendicitis? That’s what all your hullabaloo was about? It’s over now?

    We learned the hard way long ago, to NEVER EVER go to Long John Silvers (which was also a bad taco joint I can’t remember the name of…that was fish combined with MEXICAN!!)

  4. I think it is still Chicken & Biscuits here. At least as far as I know. I work on the South Side, so I pass three on my way to work, so I’ll check it out tonight.

    It is finally hot here. And I shouldn’t complain because we had the WORST winter ever, but how did it go from 48 to 90 and HUMID almost overnight? I like the 90. HATE the humidity.

  5. People who make grammatical errors (almost everyone I know) drive me bananas. Every time Scott says something like, “that ought to do good,” I’m thinking (WELL!); I saw a Sandra Bullock movie where a priest said “he was hung” instead of HANGED; and every time I hear someone end a sentence with a preposition (even when speaking, which just sounds far too formal if you say it correctly anyway), I feel the urge to correct him/her: “WITH WHOM, not ‘who are you going with.’” UM, OCD much, Kristin?

    Ashamedly, I think Emily and I share musical tastes =)

  7. Have a few Sleeman’s and then all that chicken and seafood will start tasting mighty good.

    Until the next morning.

    (Shudder.) Not that I’m speaking from experience or anything.

  12. Chicken and seafood = not ok. Red patent leather maryjanes = own them. Obama = still better grammar than Bush. Hot weather = I am so freakin sick of the endless rain here.

  14. I wouldn’t worry too much about Isabella, just yet—it’s when she starts to register for baby furniture that it’s time to worry.

    The Over-Thinkers last blog post..WITCHYPOO: Thanks for letting me unofficially guest post on your blog!!


    Comment by The Over-Thinker on June 5, 2008
  15. Haha! you make me laugh, always. :)

    I totally agree on Semi Pro, not Will’s best.
    And if I could vote in American elections, I too would be voting for Obama.

    Aaw Isabella is a cutie! She’s just pregnant, relax Ali :P

  18. Your Isabella could be my Elliot’s twin. They are both carrying babies way too young, and watching way too much Cinderelli.

  19. The bunny and Isabella should get together! The bunny has a baby in her tummy too–except hers “comes out” every.single.day! It’s quite amusing, really.

  20. Um, where are you finding said red patent leather heels? I have been endlessly searching for some, to no avail. My old pair died a sad death 3 weeks ago when I was running up a the stairs at the bank (yes, my bank has stairs – weird, right?). Anyways, I can’t find replacements. :-(

    Also, the Chicken and Seafood comment made me vomit in my mouth – just a lil bit.

  21. Shrimp and chicken? My coastal heritage wants to bitch-slap someone.

    The only things that should go with shrimp is white wine and cocktail sauce. Maybe some hushpuppies. But not chicken.
