I have been lucky enough to make some wonderful friends through the ether of this blogosphere I find myself in. I recently went through a rather traumatic experience and, much to my pleasant surprise, these people that I have never met (at least in a non-virtual way) were there for me. In the quietest and most supportive of ways. For once, I felt the reciprocity of kindness and it renewed my faith in the Universe. And in people. (thank you to you wonderful, wonderful people....and you know who you are)
So this leads me to my issue today. Mean. People. Suck. There are far too many selfish, money-grubbing, materialistic, self-righteous, self-serving schmoes out there in the world that just can't STAND for someone to have a little luck. A little success. And they piss me off. Big time. Emily Martin has recently enjoyed some recognition for her incredible talent and success and some people just couldn't let her enjoy it. For one second. What is wrong with people anyway?
I believe in karma and I know these idiots will get what they give but still. It infuriates me. So please, if you have the inclination to say or do something nasty to someone, do us all a favor and think twice. The world is a hard enough place to deal with as it is.

(The good part is right around 1:25 but it's so worth the investment to watch the entire thing)
It's kind of a joke to say that I like Target. It's more like I looooooooooooooooooooooove Target and really need to find a support group to deal with my love for Target. It's gotten so bad at times that I send the husband to Target to pick up various sundries because I just simply can not control myself. (sad, but true)

Right now, I luuuuuuuuuuuurv me some bangs.
Cute short bangs.
Soft, sideswept bangs.
Cool bangs (with glasses, even bettah.)
(Girl Howdy, quite simply, you rock.)
And my personal fave (even if it doesn't work for an old broad like me)....the Bettie bangs.
To bang or not to bang. That is the question.
I need a hair intervention. Care to help a sistah out?

"And with new eyes - as they give me so many times - I looked around and saw things just a little bit differently."
This line really spoke to me as I constantly see my surroundings and the world in a whole new light, courtesy of my little kiddos. Yesterday we registered our first baby for Kindergarten. KINDERGARTEN. How did this happen? It was the first time in my life that I was excited about school. Too bad the soon-to-be kindergartner didn't feel the same way. She's been adamant about the fact that she does not want to go to school but once she scored the free t-shirt she was on board in the biggest of ways.
Here's another way my children have inspired me. I think one of the biggest gifts I've gotten from having them in my life is learning how to let go and be silly. They, and their father, have really opened my eyes to the fact that being goofy and having a daily guffaw is fun. And, more importantly, necessary.
Here's a daily guffaw for you:
(This show airs daily on the Cartoon Network and I highly recommend TiVo'ing it for endless guffaw options)

I know, I know....hormones makes us crazy.
But here's the thing....I have this one playlist on my trusty iPod that really helps me put a wiggle in it and here is the lovely lady at the top of the list.
Take it away, Nikka.
(If you don't have Nikka on your iPod, I urge you to get thee to iTunes and download. Posthaste.)
