Morning After Musings

Had a GREAT time last night. Had dinner with friends, went to Olive Garden and ate FAR TOO MUCH. And I mean that SERIOUSLY. FAR. TOO. MUCH. Note to self: Do NOT do that unless you intend to make yourself sick.

Came home, changed (and actually put on makeup and jewelry!), then my friends and I sat down with drinks to enjoy Jeff Dunham's Very Special Christmas Special (I love that guy and his puppets....especially Jose Jalapeno on a Steeek), while we waited for our designated driver to arrive. If you're not familiar with him, go check him out on You Tube....it'll be worth your time! He's hysterical.


From there it was time to go bar hopping. We started at Gators on the Pass....which was dead, but they let me in without paying a cover cause it was my birthday and the bartender gave me a free drink....cause it was my birthday (I like how that worked). Neat trick, all it took was the nerve to ask (of course, they wanted to see ID to prove it)!

So we drank our first round and headed for the Hurricane....which was also dead and didn't bother to stop. So it was off to the Green Iguana, which is always hopping and, you guessed it, it was dead. So from there (with a little pitstop in between) we headed downtown, figuring that of anywhere Ferg's would be hopping. It too was dead (wtf is going on in this town on a Friday night???? My friends blamed it on Christmas parties and the economy, go figure).

So went further down where all the clubs are and they were hopping....with 21 year olds!!! Where in hell were all the ADULTS last night? (yeah, yeah, I know 21 is an adult, at least legally, certainly not the way they were acting). It didn't take long after popping into a club that was wall to wall with these virtualy children (from my point of view anyway) to decide it was time to call it a night. Back around the block to the car (the block we were walking around has bars on every side) and what did we discover? There'd been a fight and suddenly cop cars and an ambulance were behind our car....we got the hell out of there before we couldn't.

Anyway, had a blast, didn't drink much, but laughed a lot, sang loudly to Lost Highway in the car.....and CC, you're getting BOB!!!! ;)

Happy Birthday to ME!!!!


Okay, enough of the maudlin stuff. Today's alllllll about me. :) I love birthdays, well, celebrating them, not necessarily the actual numbers. The older I get the more celebrations and they seem to go on for a week.

Tuesday was the first, with a dinner at my neighbors. The sweet couple that they are gave me a HUGE bear wearing a t-shirt that says "Jon Bon Beari is crazy about me!" He's ADORABLE!

Last night it was my dad's turn and we went out to dinner and he gave me a check......for the exact amount as is my age. He thought it was clever and I loved it. My father is a stroke victim and has been making huge strides towards getting stronger, the one thing that has never faultered is his wicked warped sense of humor. Hmm, wonder where I got mine?

Tonight another couple is taking me to dinner and then a group of us are going drinking.....should be an experience since none of us have a clue where the hot bars are and worse, we're all lightweights when it comes to alcohol. Never fear though, we do have a Designated Driver.

This will all be followed by a Christmas party Saturday night and yet another couple wants to take me to lunch or breakfast this weekend. Sooooo, this is going to be one long party ending next Thursday if I can stretch it out. Hey, after the month I've had, I deserve it.

The goal is after the new year to find gainful employment again, but for now, I'm looking, but not that hard......except to find those guys, now where the hell can I find them????

Beautiful Weather, Sad Day


Today is one of those glorious days that remind me why I moved to the sunny south. Up north it's snowing, two of my dear friends have run off the road in the last 24 hours (both are okay)on icy conditions. It snowed in Vegas (go figure!) and down here it's going to be 80 today. Like I said glorious day weatherwise.

On other fronts, it's a sad day. My beautiful black cat, aptly named Blackie, came to us 15 years ago when our neighbors thoughtlessly moved and left their young, pregnant cat behind. She had kittens under our porch and after adopting out the kittens we kept the scrawny, ugly cat. After she put on weight she turned into a beautiful cat that was well loved and as feisty as she was spoiled. The last few years her health has been failing and last night it became painfully apparent that it was time to put her to rest. This morning I took her, laying in her bed, to the vet and they gently took care of that for me. She's now laid to rest in the cat cemetary in my back yard with Moonshadow, Lucky and Tennessee Tuxedo. Rest in Peace, baby, you will be missed.

I'm getting there

It's been a busy few days for me. I went to Magic Kingdom yesterday with friends. I have to say that I'd seen pictures of the Cinderella Castle all lit up. My friend that works for them sent pictures of it and even though those were fabulous, they didn't prepare me for the reality of how absolutely stunning the castle is when it's lit up for Christmas. Unbelievable, the jaw-droppingly, incredibly, out of this world kind of unbelievable. If you get the chance to go see it, do so. It's not something that I ever thought I'd be stunned by. It was.

I've added a new chapter to Amber and finally Muse's Minis is a working site. It's not pretty yet, but the links are there to at least some of my 'biscuits'. Once I find the rest of them, they'll go up too. And as I said, I'm working on a new one that nobody's seen yet, so that should be here in the next week or so.

If you like what you see, leave a message, if you don't leave one anyway, so I know I'm not blogging to thin air. LOL

Later gators!
