Whatta Week!

Since last Thursday, I've:

1. Seen the islands of Georgia
2. Made a bunch of new friends.


3. Played on the beach.
4. Seen a million frogs! Frogs are so cool!
Jump
5. Spent some time with Krizzle and the Vegas-style frisbee. ;)

...and a bunch of other stuff. :)

Haterator Sound Off

I love my gal friends.

I hate being the only one in the crowd who realizes the stranger who called Romanians "a bunch of Communists" and scoffed at my friends was an A.Howl.

I hate having to call information to hunt for a cab company and hope I have enough bills to get home. I have to get up for work in 3 hours.

I hate leaving a trail of full complimentary beers at random tables all night.

I hate that I don't know myself well enough by now to understand that... that just isn't my scene.

Period. I'm done.

I'm done. I'd rather be playing tennis or kickball or painting...or grading papers. Seriously. I'll never be a club girl. I'll never be an astronaut either. It's time to get real.

....and it's time to buy a hammock. What a gorgeous day!

Take me out to the...RO-gaine!

I was flipping through channels the other night while elliptical machining and stopped for 4-minutes on the Braves/Mets game.


I saw 30-seconds of Donald Trump's combover, thank you Zoom Lens.

I saw a Mets player blow a killer BubbleYum bubble on his way to first (way to multi-task,dude! a little pro ball, a little bubble blowing contest....all in a day's work).

I saw another 30-seconds of close-up footage of the Trump scalp. I guess he must be a Mets fan?

aaaaaaaand....not to leave out 2-minutes of baseball. ;)

p.s. I don't understand the male baldness insecurity. Some men look really awesome with clean-shaven heads. I read a study once that said balding men have more testosterone. I'd say it's a fair trade. :) C'mon, Donald! Love that bald head!

The Wind beneath Smoltz's fast flyers

What an AWESOME night for my first Braves game! Who knew I loved ball games? My favorites of the night:

1. The giant vats of mustard
2. The kiss cam...uh huh
3. That perfect little slide, then pop up into third (was that Teixeiera?)
4. Watching a real pro pitcher have a real good night.
5. Yunel Escobar
6. The gorgeous,perfect for being outside weather
7. Hanging out with a good friend :)
8. The hotdog I was S A V I N G for my first Braves game (haven't had a dog in a few years, but MAN was it good tonight!).
9. Making wagers with the 8-year old sitting next to me.
10. Realizing baseball isn't dead after all.

Calm

I don't get headaches. Except, tonight... I have one. I've tried all the tricks I know to bust the thing. Trick #27-- Tazo Calm Tea.

The label claims:

"A single cup of Tazo Calm has been known to have the same effect as sitting for 45 minutes in a mountain meadow on a sunny day with your shoes off."

I'd settle for 3 good minutes. eh. Maybe I'll forget the hot water and chew on the darn bag. ;) mmmm... a tea bag habit. I could carry a wad of tea bags in my back pocket and really get my bottom lip in shape. Perhaps I'd fit in enough with the farm boys back in the Midwest that they'd teach me to bale hay. Maybe I'd finally get George Strait's autograph. I digress....

Dear headache, Go away. I mean it. Most Sincerely, Aubrey
(Trick #32--a personal letter)

I guess squinting at a computer screen can't help, but I have so much to do!

holiday catch up. vaccuuming. gorgeous days. dang cranky cranium.
