Confessions

yeap, here it is.. time to confess some things.

 

I watch the Olympics.  Not so bad.  I cry when, during the medal ceremony, it doesn’t matter what country is on the podium with gold I cry.  Just to look at their faces in wonder at the moment.  Of course it helps when some of them are just too cute! 😉

I yell at the tv!  Friends can atest to this.  They have heard me while we are on the phone and I am yelling at a stupid move or comment.

I have yet to finish the final Harry Potter book. -hides head-  I am stuck in the woods. I admit it.  However, since I have a bad habit, I have read the last chapter.  Why I do this I don’t know.  I do it will all books.

I have called Biker boy.  Not once.  Not twice.  But atleast 3 times.

Reading

I have a mess of books to read and I blame my friends for that!!!

I blame Coco for showing me to Bookswim.  I blame my IRL friends for knowing me too well for my birthday.  The bookcase is being cleaned out again.  Either friends will get the fallout, or some online friends will get the fall out but I have a feeling that a good number will be donated to charity.  Again.

I have one friend, who the last time I saw her was in Barnes and Noble, and she gave me a gift card for my birthday.  I think from that one GC I went and purchased a total of 8 books.  Love sales!!!!

Now to make room from the latest shipment of chicklit and adoption related books to get me through the next few months.  Luckily it takes some time to go in and see therapist!!  Otherwise I doubt I would get as much reading done as I do with the train rides.

RIP

This has been a weird week.

They say that bad news comes in 3’s.  Well, I ended up hitting that all in one day but I didn’t know it.

#1

My coworkers sister passed away on Tuesday.  She was only 24 years old.  She had Cancer and while she was going to get a bone marrow transfer, she caught Chicken Pox.  Chicken Pox helped to bring her down.  Sassy, I am sorry to hear about your sister and just know that now she is with your Mom and in no more pain.

#2

There was a news story that I caught just a bit of and was unable to hear about it on Tuesday.  Come to find out it was my cubby mates nephew.  He was hanging out with friends and he was dared to jump.  He jumped.  The riptide and current was so strong that when the sun set on Monday they had to suspend the search until Tuesday.  J was not in the best spirits when I saw her.   We all call her Mom.  If you looked in her filing cabinets you would understand.  Bandaids, ear phones, batteries, aspirin, Motrin, the all important Chocolate, slippers, scarf, etc.

#3

He was a local restaurant owner and author.  He did things for Big Brother/Big Sisters.  I met him a few times and had to say he was funny.  He wrote 3 books and Biker Boy is in book two and Phil asked Biker Boy to be his bodyguard when they went on tour.  Phil was even booked on The Tonight Show.  Unfortunately, the ride fell through and nothing else came of it.  Phil went missing on Friday, 6/27 and was reported missing by his wife and was found on 7/2 of an apparent suicide in the parking lot of a  Walmart in Epping, New Hampshire.

Phil Englehardt will be missed by many.  I went up to Seabrook, New Hampshire yesterday and there were flowers in the entrance way of the Honey Bee.  The restaurant that he owned for many years and that he closed down in 07.

RIP

I’ve been tagged

My friend Tara and it appears Oceans have tagged me and so I will try to come up with 6 random things about me.

1) I hate horror movies – well – trully dislike them. I would rather watch a comedy or a romance comedy. Which is sad because my first movie I saw was “Children of the Corn”. I spent New Year’s Eve a few years ago at a friends and we watched a horror movie. I think the best part about it was when R, my friend T, boyfriend, screamed and almost fell off the bar stool.

2) I am a reader. I can, if the mood strikes me, read 3-4 books a week. I am not talking thin, skinny books. I am talking books that are atleast 300+ pages. I am currently going thru the Henry the XIII period and the Tudors. Fiction, nonfiction it doesn’t matter.

3) I am related to royality. I am related to Lady Jane Grey, the 9 day Queen of England who was related to Henry the XIII. I am also related to the first published poetress in the new world and I had relatives called out as warlocks during the Salem Witch Trials.

4) I am incredibly shy. Almost to the point of I would rather stay at home then go out. I have been going to the same bar for years and I still don’t like walking in there because I am afraid that I will know noone there and be by myself.

5) I have never broken a bone. Never and that is from not trying. I remember falling out of a tree when I was little. Flying off a merry go round. Sometimes I tried. Never broke anything but I have pulled the tendons and ligaments in my elbow 2x and was told if I did it again I would need pins to hold it together.

6) I love to cook!! Not the simple things, hard boiled eggs, mac n cheese. I am talking a chicken dish that if I am not in a rush to cook takes over an hour. I will marinate chicken in different things to see how they taste, I can tell you that orange juice with garlic is a great marinade for a summer dish with cold pasta.
