Cage Goes Goth?

I'm telling you, you've really got to watch those boxed haircolors you get at Wal-Mart.

Case in point: Nicolas Cage.

"Nice N' Easy" is a bit of a misnomer, is it not, Nic?

And....get a haircut!

I'm Back

Home again!

First, thank you all for your well wishes. It really means a lot that you thought of me; it did the trick!

My problem? A hiatal hernia.

This means (ugh) dietary changes. I've already cut out the caffiene, but now I have to cut out the chocolate (bah), onions (oh no!), fatty foods (what else is there?), citrus fruits and drinks (damn), and spicy foods.

It looks like unflavored oatmeal from here on.

I'm still feeling a little woozy, in a good way, so I'm going to go collapse on the couch.

Bright and Early

I've been up since 5:10 this morning.

Why, you ask?

Because the endoscopy got moved up, that's why. I have to be at the hospital at 7:15 this morning.

I'm awake, I'm showered, I'm dressed. And I'm hungry.

Why is it when you can't eat is when you really want to eat?

I told Husband that I was going to eat like a pig right up until 11:59 last night; I didn't, because frankly, I just can't be that much of a pig.

Think Happy Thoughts, Please?

Think of me tomorrow starting at 9 a.m. EST, if you could. I have to go in for an endoscopy and I'm really not looking forward to it.

You know what that is, right? That's where a lighted scope is sent down my gullet and my innards are checked out. I had this done 10 years ago, which is when I was diagnosed with the acid reflux. Well, now, after all kinds of flutterings and pain and other unpleasant episodes, I have to have it done again.

I'm not in a panic, but there is that person I know who was diagnosed with cancer because his acid relux went undiagnosed. Cripes, after 10 years, who knows what they'll find in me?

Jimmy Hoffa?

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ....

But, if you could, you know, think one nice thing about me tomorrow, I'd sure appreciate it.

Well, yes, I'm still here, despite having a new one ripped for me by a Scientologist. Point taken, dude, now go genuflect at Tom Cruise.

Anyhoo, there isn't that much for me to blog about! Son is feeling better, Daughter hasn't caught strep (thank God), Husband has a day off, and I'm trying to clean the house.

Well, yesterday was kind of interesting. The title of the sermon at church was "Dealing with Lust." Husband thought it would be good in helping me to stop "lusting" for Ewan McGregor.

Now I hear that that asshat Tom Cruise met with Cheney's Chief of Staff to discuss...treatment of Scientologists in Germany.

How pointless. How stupid. How asinine!

OU812 Birthday

Birthday greetings to Eddie Van Halen, who turns 52 today!

Incidentally, I hear that Van Halen will be reuniting with David Lee Roth for a 40 date tour. It won't be the entire original line-up; Eddie's son Wolfgang will be filling in on bass.

That should be one attractive view (not) what with Roth's hair-line and Eddie's general looking like a much older man.

So, in that spirit, I have here a picture of Eddie in his better days:

Appropriate Name

Back from taking Son to the doctor. Son does not have the pox. No! He has, are you ready for this: scarlet fever.

He's on an antibiotic for the next 10 days and can't go back to school until Monday. There's a chance Daughter could get this too, so I have to keep the two of them segregated.

Segregation NOW!

Ha ha...

But, we made it; the roads weren't bad at all. Now I've just got to coax Son into taking a nap.

Snow Day!

No school today, which is fine, because Son was home yesterday feeling kind of crappy, and one more day won't hurt him, especially if the rest of the district is out too.

But, see, today I have to take Son to the doctor because Son woke up with not only a fever, but a rash. All over his body.

Pray it isn't the pox.

My thought has always been that if the buses aren't running, neither am I, but Son looks miserable, and mother must do what a mother has to do.

I'm going to get the kids bundled and what not, so that I have ample time to brave the elements without having to rush.

So, have a nice day!

Or at least enough snow to delay school for two hours.

Here's the funny thing, yesterday I took two children to the nursery at church and it was just colder than a mother-in-law's kiss (and I should know). Then, about an hour and a half later....snow! Slick roads! Much colder!

Once the family unit was safely home, I changed into two pairs of socks, two sweatshirts, and the requisite blue sweatpants.

I was damn cold, people.

And now, this morning, I connect to these here Internets to find that the school district we live in here in the Ohio Armpit...I mean Valley...is delayed.

Son will be happy.

Son of the South Birthday


On this date in 1807, Robert Edward Lee was born.

Now, as a former Civil War reenactor, I've learned a lot about this man's character and sense of duty. He attended West Point, fought in the Mexican American War, was Superintendent of West Point...and of course there was his service to the Confederacy.

Although I'm a Yankee born and bred, I've said before that for me to take sides in a fight like that of the Civil War (or War of Northern Aggression) would be wrong, and as I have learned so much about this man, I can only say I have a lot of respect for him.

He resigned from the US Army because he didn't want to take up arms against his beloved Virginia. I can respect that.

And he had some major health problems, and I've heard wasn't feeling too pert at Gettysburg. Boy, can I feel that pain!

But, as for the whole reenacting thing, I once escorted "General Lee" through Union camp. (It was a small event.) Everyone told me I should have used my feminine charms on him and kidnapped him.

Yeah, right, with his aides all around? Sure. And my charms aren't that beguiling!

(And I think Robert Duvall did a much better job than Martin Sheen!)

In The Wrong Line of Work

Yesterday was Daughter's check-up with the ear doc. She still has a tube in her right ear, so I still have to take her in every six months to be checked out. Yesterday, though, set a new record.

We waited for an hour in the waiting room. During which time not only did I have to endure Regis and Kelly, but Ellen Degeneres as well.


So, yeah, we wait, like ya do, only to be called back and have to wait some more for this doctor with a God complex to grace us with his presence.


I was informed that Daughter must have had an ear infection (hmm?) and that there was a lot of gunk in there that needs to be cleared out. Here's some drops, see you in three weeks.


I have to do this again in three weeks?


I seriously messed up by not going to med school. Think of it, I could be a doctor in private practice and totally fook with people's lives!

Soap Suds

I'd read about this possibility of this happening in the Soap Opera Digest (yes, I read that), but now it looks to be a certainty:

In other television news, the campy sudsfest 'Passions' has been canceled by NBC and will be replaced by another hour of The Today Show (yawn...) later in the summer. NBC will apparently shop the show around to other networks and online entities. This will leave 'Days of Our Lives' as the network's sole soap.

I'd also heard, and this hasn't been confirmed, that Passions, or even Days, may make the move over to ABC, shortening All My Children and One Live to Live to a half hour.

Just keep your paws off of General Hospital!

I Am GroovyVic and I Am Old

It's hell to realize I'm not immortal.

I went back to the doc this morning for a follow-up on that Prevacid I've been taking. Long story short, I have to go to a GI doctor and may possibly have to have another scope.

I had a scope done ten years ago which was how I was finally diagnosed with GERD and not dying of a heart attack. It wasn't fun, but then I remember little after they gave me the sleepy drug.

This is turning into a pain in the ass because it's yet another damn doctor I have to see...and did I mention the X-ray I have to get? Yeah, the doc felt a mass in my upper abdomen that really hurt when she pressed on it.

Dammit. First my boobs, now this.

Oh, yeah, I never mentioned it, but the doc found a lump about a month ago, for which I endured my first "pancake" test. That came out fine, but I was still in a blind panic throughout the holidays.

So now! Yes! I get to be X-rayed for another mass!

Will this madness ever stop?

Treasure Hunt

I'm getting a new laptop. This, in itself, is not really a big deal; the only reason I'm getting a new laptop is because Husband has decided to donate my current laptop to the church for all that PowerPoint business.

You know, though, that I'm not going to say no to a new computer.

But the thing is, I cannot find the restore discs! I have searched high and low, in desk drawers and boxes from the move that still haven't been unpacked and I cannot find what I'm looking for!

I have, however, found my diplomas from high screwl and college, a certificate I received from the Guard when Husband was overseas, and Son's first haircut envelope.

I can't find the damn thumb drive that came with my old computer either. After hunting and hunting I'm really starting to get annoyed.

Now I turn to figuring out what stuff to keep on the old workhorse: blog stuff, documents, naked pictures of Ewan McGregor. (Wouldn't want those popping up in church, would we?)

And Husband has informed me that HE will be keeping all the restore discs and such. Fine by me!

This is the name Husband has bestowed upon me. He says I've been really grumpy lately.

Well, gee, I wonder why? I haven't been feeling good, I had to deal with the furnace man on Friday, Daughter will not nap and is shoving candy up her nose...I haven't had a very good week!!!

Now, today, I have to schlep a ton of crap to church. I had to open my big, fat mouth and volunteer to do the hospitality stuff, and since Husband is working today I also have to take in the projector and his laptop for the PowerPoint presentation.

I do not like this for several reasons. Church should be about hymnals, not slideshows on a screen. I'm not comfortable with all the hoo-ha that goes with the show; I can handle the hook-ups and all, but not the software glitches. And! I resent the assumption that because my husband isn't available, I can just take over for him.

Not so much!

So, I have to get myself, the younglings, the laptop and projector, and my orange citrus bars into the church. I have to connect everything, rush over to set up the hospitality table, and try to get Daughter to use the restroom. After services I have to tear down and try to serve at the same time.

I've been told that the way to heaven isn't through good works but through faith and salvation. That's funny, because I'm doing a hell of a lot of work!!!

But wait, I said I wouldn't talk about church anymore! Oh well, this is a different church.

UPDATE: It went fine. I still don't like doing it, but there were no major foul-ups and there weren't that many people there anyway. And my orange citrus bars won raves! I can't take all the credit, it was a Paula Deen recipe!

Tag! A Meme

I've been tagged by Wyatt Earp!

So, okay:

Five Things You (Probably) Didn't Know About Me

1. I am afraid of the dark. Yes, at almost 37 years of age I am afraid of the dark. I put the blame squarely on my sister, who used to tell me stories about the boogey man and peeping Toms. This explains why I sleep with the lights, and my glasses, on when Husband is out of town.

2. I love Italian men. I don't know why, maybe it's because I watched The Godfather at such an early age. Maybe it's that whole mafia intrigue thing, I don't know, but Italian men melt my butter.

3. Urban Cowboy is one of my favorite movies. And probably the only John Travolta movie that I like. I guess it appeals to the redneck in me.

4. Gone With the Wind is why I got into reenacting. Another movie I watched constantly from childhood on. I fell in love with the dresses! When I got older, I learned about more than the fashions and fell in love with Gettysburg. One day the gas man (yes) working outside the house saw my bumper sticker about saving battlefields, and the rest is history. I met Husband at my first living history event. He cuts a fine figure in a greatcoat and kepi!

5. I am a creature of habit. I fear change. I hate change. Schedules are a good thing, and God help the person who fouls up my routine!

Hmmm...okay, I tag....who ever wants to do this! Go for it!!!

Swooner Dreamboat Wants to Get Animated

I don't think I'll be able to look at Peter Rabbit the same way again.

But, to whoever wrote this article, his wife's name isn't Clara. That's the name of one of his daughters.

Being Nice and Candy Up the Nose

Yesterday was, I don't know, just not a good day. I should have been dancing in the road; Husband went back to work and Son went back to school. I could have some small bit of peace, but NOOOOOOO!

Daughter and I set out for my least favorite chore, groceries, and all went well. I managed to avoid temptation at Wal-Mart (which, spelled backwards, is "tram-law") and kept the spending within budget.

BTW, grapes were $1.98/lb. What the piss?

Anyway, we got home and as soon as I got La Tahoe in the garage I just felt like "I'm so damn tired of doing this." (In a mood, feeling angry...one of those days.) The job of unpacking all the groceries was made worse by Daughter approaching me every two minutes for a banana...or juice...or crackers...or what ever!

Then she stuck candy up her nose. I don't know why she did this. Don't worry, it was one of those little Nerd candies; it started to melt almost as soon as it hit her nose. But I was all like "Why did I have children?"

I called a friend at that point and we compared notes on our day thus far. It wasn't even noon and we'd both had pretty rotten mornings!

Fast forward to 5:00 p.m. when Son and I arrived for his eye exam. I was met in the parking lot by a woman who said the doc was really backed up, that someone had been sitting and waiting since 1:30! Crap. Soooooo, Son and I hustled in and I just rescheduled. There's nothing wrong with his eyes, it was just a routine check-up, and I told the receptionist to get those other folks out of there (and there was no where to sit).

No big deal. I was happy to not have to wait!

Let's hope today is better.

Happy Birthday!!!


Happy Birthday to the bassist for THE BEST BAND EVER, John Paul Jones, who turns 61 today.

I love Led Zeppelin, I love bass players, I love this man. Led Zeppelin ROCKS.

And Jones looks a lot like my step-dad.



I can't let the day go without wishing a Happy Birthday to Mel Gibson, who turns 51 today.

Say what you want, I don't care, I still love this man, too. I love his movies (although I haven't seen that latest one) and he had THE FINEST tushie I've ever seen.

Time to watch Lethal Weapon again!

And I've got to dig out my Zep stuff!!!

Happy Nude New Year!

So, how are we feeling this morning? Hungover? Well, go get some hair of the dog and get ready to eat pork and sauerkraut. That always helps me.

What did I do last night? Not much, since I felt like an old dishrag. I don't know why, but for some reason every year at this time I feel run down and weak. I shan't go into the other symptoms.

I watched a movie up until midnight, at which point Husband and I toasted the nude new year and then went to bed.

Pretty exciting stuff, huh?

And now, this morning, Daughter is SuperGirl and is chasing Son around the house, throwing plastic french fries at him and trapping him on the couch.

Good times, goooooood times...
