Some Randomness....

...because I just realized how long it's been since I posted. Jeez.

  • See that sparkly badge over there in my sidebar? I just signed up for my first ever BlogHer party. Let the freaking out commence. The closer I get to actually getting on the plane and going to this thing, the more I feel like throwing up. The sane part of my brain knows that it will all mostly be fine, but the majority of my brain is not sane and it's running like a hamster on speed right now, worrying. Gah. I may need to get some Xanax or something so I don't hurl all over the first person I meet. Or maybe I'll just do like The Bloggess and spend most of my time in the bathrooms.
  • After many long conversations with my son, where I breathed deeply and chose my words carefully, he has agreed to have this wedding catered. It's just too tacky for words to invite 70 people to your wedding and then expect them to bring their own food. Now if I can just convince his dad that pee buckets are a really bad idea, it'll be all good. Pee buckets. Christ on a cracker. I swear to god, I did not raise this child this way.
  • I have somehow managed to screw up my knee. A couple of weeks ago, I missed the bottom step when I was coming down the stairs in the morning (I really need to move the coffee maker upstairs) and fell hard. I bruised both knees and my toenail on one foot is almost completely black but the knee just started hurting last night. Very odd and very painful. Have I mentioned that this getting older thing is bullshit? Complete and utter bullshit. Especially when my much younger husband said "Well, you don't heal like you used to, you know." Thanks, darling. So sweet.
  • I've started taking a vitamin B complex supplement and it really seems to be helping with my energy levels. The first couple of days I felt like I was on speed, I got so much done. That's tapered off somewhat, but I still have much more energy than I used to. Until this knee thing sidelined me, I was going like gangbusters most days. It's nice. Although it hasn't improved my blogging abilities, apparently.
  • And finally, I've had this song stuck in my head for days, so I thought I'd try to purge it by sharing it with you.

I'm excited for you about BlogHer!!
Hope your knee heals fast. That's the only bad part of getting older, the body stuff....It's bullshit, I agree!!

WTF is a pee bucket? I'm off to Google it!!

Ouch on the knee! I was just popping by to say you're missed on MV. Come back!

Shit, I don't know what the hell these BlogHer parties are, and I'm thinking I need to figure it out.

Also, I need to get some of that vitamin B. Srly.

"pee bucket" and "wedding" should not occur in the same sentence. Unless the wedding was held in, say, the 12th century.

I'm sorry about your knee. I just fell on my stairs, too... over a week ago, and I think I did serious damage to the (overabundant) soft tissue in my left butt cheek. It'd be funny if it didn't hurt so goddamn much.

Find me. I'll be in the bathroom too.
