January 21 08

last night i watched my Superbowl dreams fly right out the window. all thanks to a hypothermic QB1. at least, i hope he was hypothermic. because otherwise, there’s little excuse for the game he played last night. the New York Giants deserved to win that football game…and you know why, Brett? because Eli Manning actually completed his passes. he moved his ball down the field. oh, and also…he didn’t throw TWO interceptions…one very crucial one in overtime. Imagine that…

Brett Favre said he won't let Green Bay's loss sway his decision about whether to return next season.

I watched this travesty on my couch at home, with my 102.8’ed toddler in hand, instead of at WEGZ, with my 2.5 beers in hand. and maybe that was for the best. because i was annoyed. and angry. and sad. and i yelled at my tv a lot. I wasn’t expecting to be cheering for the Patriots at the Superbowl this year. (also, i’m sure i will be taking lots of shit from lots of my friends. it’s okay, i can take it.)

and usually, i take a lot of heat, no problem. i’m somewhat of a pacifist that way. i usually know when to put my hands in my lap, a smile across my face, and zip to the lip. for example, i refuse to discuss politics with a whole variety of people. i will disclose, however, than come election day, i will be voting to put a Democrat into office. Obama, Hillary, hell, i’d even vote for Al Gore (but mostly because he was badass on 30 Rock…)…

anyway…there are certain things i just won’t take. One of those came on Saturday night when we went out to play pool. ps. i might be the world’s worst pool player. anyway, someone said this: “Americans are stupid” and i said, “whoa. dude. i’m pretty sure that’s a pretty bold generalization right there!” you see, being the only American amongst 11 Canadians, i pretty well felt it was my duty to stick up for my people. (ha. i said ‘duty’. i’m officially 12) and the argument went on for about, oh, well, a good 30 minutes.

perhaps, instead of that, i should have been arguing why it is that no one ever notices when i get a haircut? lucky for all of you, i TELL you, so you don’t even need to pretend to notice…also, i am so not sensitive to these things (reason #471 that i am un-chick-like)

but come on, people, that’s almost 4 inches off the bottom!! and also, that thing i’m wearing (i refuse to call it a camisole, because that makes me think of my grandmother. who, incidentally owns a shirt that i wanted to buy at Anthropologie.) is A-FUCKING-MAZING. i own 11 of them now. and i pretty much wear one every single day. they sell them at RW&Co, in case you were wondering…

now? still nothing?

well, i’ll leave you with this…both the girls are funny in this video…but you have to keep an eye on Isabella. This was before the whole let’s-get-a-high-ass-fever-and-glue-ourselves-to-mommy-forever incident; when we took the kids 5-pin-bowling…

today is the last day to vote if you haven’t already….i’ve been nominated for FOUR Canadian Blog Awards. Please vote for me! This year you can only vote ONCE per CATEGORY per round…so i’d love it if you could throw at least one my way…

i’m nominated in for Cheaper Than Therapy for:
Best Personal Blog

Best Family Blog

and for Juice for:

Best Entertainment/Cultural Blog

Best Media/Celebrity Blog

shnikes! i knew there was something i’d forgotten!!
It’s an online baby shower! for mothergoosemouse!


I am supposed to share some tips on having a boy. but, yes, everyone knows about covering wieners whilst changing diapers. and i like to break the rules…so i’ll just share a good Josh story.

“Daddy, i want chocolate milk”
“Daddy, i want chocolate milk”
“Daddy, i want chocolate milk”
“Then die!”
(channeling his VERY best Lord Vader)

Julie – i don’t even know if you know who i am…but i want to tell you…i LOVE my girls…but boys are awesome. the superheroes. the video games. the star wars. they are just like girls without the whole, you know, emotional side. also, they have wieners…but i just pretend that doesn’t exist…because it scares me a little πŸ˜‰

  1. Love haircut! Did you colour it too? Your video is too cute.

    Very cute vid.

    Gorgeous haircut (as per usual). How DO you get it so straight???

    Sorry about the Packers? (Mmm, mental note = need to ring Dad to see who he is going for?). a bit out of the loop here in Oz re Super Bowl et al.

  6. It was an ugly showing by a team that has been much better all year long.

    But, part of it is momentum… the Giants have been in uber-competitive mode since the last week of the season (NE), and have just been hitting their stride.

    Oh wait, this is a mommy blog… uh… sorry your kid is sick, and cute video. πŸ˜‰

  7. I wear those every day TOO! I call them undershirts, which is unsexy but accurate.
    Your hair looks great – is it a lot more blonde?
    My favorite not noticing story was when I had some EXTENSIVE dental work done – all my front teeth were capped and it was NOTICEABLE and NO ONE commented. Where they just being polite? Did they really not notice? It was kind of funny, really.

  10. Thanks for sticking up for us ‘Mericans.
    Your hair looks nice but it always looks nice, maybe I didn’t notice because I’ve only been reading your blog for like… a week or 2? Sorry.
    And I’ll try to get over and vote. For you.
    I like the take a picture every day of your work outfit. It’d be interesting to look back over outfits.
    btw – Today I’m wearing a pair of pants I haven’t worn since my summer of running before I got pregnant with baby #2.

    And I really like the new format. Really. (do I have to enable commentluv? whats that?)

  13. i am jealous of how hot and sexy you are.

    sorry about the packers. personally, i would have loved to see a packers-chargers bowl, but clearly my choices were not at one with the fates’. i’m hoping the giants really bring it, though, because no matter who wins, i want to see a good game right up to the end. if the pats make an easy win from the start, i’ll just be bored.

  24. I have been known to have some anti-american generalizations cross my lips, but never in the presence of Americans ! I can’t believe whoever said that continued to argue their point ! (Most generalizations came when I was a teenager and didn’t know any Americans. Now they are mostly anti-government and lots of Americains agree with me !)

    Comment by Heather on January 22, 2008
  25. ummm…hi…Giant fan here. Please don’t hate me…we feel really really bad about beating the Pack. Honest. Everyone loves Favre! So maybe could you cheer for the Giants and not the Patriots? Pretty please?

  31. Hiya, i have seen your site when searching a few weeks ago and i really love the design! I just bought a new 3 character domain (cost me a packet) for a niche review blog, and i was wondering if your design is a free or paid one? I’m new to WordPress and about to set it up, and i would really like to get something with a similar look to yours. Any ideas where i could download or buy something similar? Thanks for your help! πŸ™‚

  36. Too bad about Brett Favre.
    Don’t sell him out of the superbowl with one game.
    His new commercials with wrangler have made him your favorite QB. Calvin
    Klein is still hangin’ LOL!

  37. Maybe you could change the blog subject Cheaper Than Therapy » Blog Archive » on the QB1, gross generalizations, haircuts, and drunk dancing to more better for your webpage you make. I loved the the writing all the same.
