2. My Momma Van needs some washing in a bad way. I am absolutely terrified of those automatic car washes that move you down the track...... seriously, I have a panic attack when they tell me to put it in neutral. So I have to rely on Mr. Sasha to do it for me, and that's kind of like asking him to spontaneously do laundry... it's not going to happen without a lot of prodding, and per Dr. Laura, I really shouldn't prod. But that's out the window when The Politician draws pictures in the dirt on the side of the van. So I told Mr. Sasha that today's the day- he's taking the van to get it washed. Whew.... I feel better already.
Oh, and one more thing. Last night, for the first time in about 4 years, we rented a movie. Knocked Up. But here's the thing. We're not sure that we thought it was all that funny, and we've heard from a million people just how great it is. Are we just too old? Does something happen at 33 and your humor appreciation changes? I guess I need to pull out Old School and see if I still get the giggles. Maybe it's just that Knocked Up wasn't all the funny........

The Politician: Hi DD!
MIL: Hi Politician! Do you know where Papa and I are? (the are on a vacay)
The Politician: Colorado!
MIL: You caught a rabbit! Wow- that's so exciting- tell me all about it!
The Politician: ???????

Now, some of my friends just don't "get" the humor. But Mr. Sasha and I do, so much that we often have to pause the show because we are laughing so hard.
Our favorite quotes from last night:"Has Roy ever killed your cat?"
"I'm not superstitious, but I'm a little stitious."
"There's no such thing as a rabies doctor."
"Support the Rabid."
Holy crap.... that's some good stuff. Reminds me of the first two seasons of Arrested Development. But I will admit, you either get it or you don't. I was glad to find out that the Lexapro hasn't affected the humor I appreciate, although I still think I am less snarky.

I actually thought I might have made them up, because I googled them and found no reference. Even the Hershey's website did not have them listed under products. And I posted on BBC and no one else had heard of them. So I thought maybe the Lexapro was making me see things.
So I snuck out of work, drove to Sam's, and yeah, they exist. So of course I bought them. And they are good. Damn......

So I went in for a general physical about a month ago. One of the things I was going to ask about was Rozerem, a sleep aid that my neighbor the drug rep told me about. He said it was new, non habit forming, and had helped he and Mrs. Drug Rep sleep a lot better. So I mentioned this to the doctor, and he totally surprised me by saying he'd rather me try something else. He said he doesn't like to prescribe sleep aids- he'd rather deal with the root problem, and he thought my problem was a chemical imbalance, or depression. He wanted to put me on a low dose of Lexapro and see if that helped.
I was taken aback, but deep down, I know I've had some depression problems and honestly, I pretty much have a lot of craziness in my family. Like committable craziness.
So I've gotta tell you, here it is a month later, and I love me some Lexapro. Life is grand again, I am sleeping like a baby, and Mr. Sasha told me last night that he is really enjoying living with the new Sasha. One thing, though, I think I've lost a little of my snark. Some of my wit is gone. I suppose it was the general pissed-off attitude I had all the time, but I am pretty sure I was damn funny when I was pissed off.

Holy crap- speaking of Where's Waldo, I have the greatest story ever. Well, maybe if you're not in my sorority, it won't make a lot of sense, but hey, you never know, the humor may translate anyway.
So it's about Summer 1995 and a few of us from our local chapter are at the National Convention. Each year at the National Convention they have a "Model Initiation" ceremony to initiate some special pledge who is about a triple legacy and a super-duper student and probably a goody-two-shoes to boot. In order to attend this ceremony (and probably 500 people attend) you must wear ALL WHITE.
So here we are, sitting in Model Initiation, being serious (as we are expected to be), and all of the sudden my sorority sister next to me whispers, "Where's Waldo?" I'm like, "What???" And she says it again and points across the room.
There, in a sea of white, is an older lady in a turquoise blazer! WTH???? Who let her in?
So we are dying laughing, and everyone around us catches on, and starts laughing too, and really, the two of us are probably still known at headquarters as the girls who ruined model initiation at Convention 95.
I will say they never did ask for my pin back, and I was cleared to be an advisor for another chapter from 2001-2006, so maybe it is all forgotten, but OMG it was simply hilarious.
Hello All, I am planning on doing the shopping Wednesday evening. Here is the list so far. Please add or make changes if needed:
Plates( plastic/sturdy ones due to the messy spaghetti)
Fresh pigs feet (I know, I know)
Pork neck bones ...again, I'm sure it will be delicious :)
Italian meat balls ( 2 per person)
Spaghetti noodles - thin #9 noodles per Tom
Big bags of potato chips
Salad ( premade?? or should we make it??)
Cans of Diet coke/ Dr. Pepper/ Sprite
How many 2 liters do we need for the ring toss?
* Also, we will check and see if we already have mustard and ketchup*

After the festival was over, I discovered that we served skunky Diet Coke (it expired Dec 25, 2006!!!!) and we had a TON of homemade caramel popcorn left (and I so forgot to grab some on my way out). I also took the family photos at the photo booth, and I'm no photographer, but no one else volunteered. I may have to offer refunds........

Anyway, as I am going through my bedroom into the bathroom, I see a trail of clothes. First shorts, then undies, then a shirt. Now, I'm totally used to the shorts and undies coming off, seems he can do his business best with nothing binding around his legs. But the shirt..... why in the world is that off?
Sasha: Politician, I see you've taken off your shirt. What's that all about?
Politician: Momma, I always take all my clothes off before I go poop.
Sasha: Well, what about at school? Do you take all your clothes off there too? (Something I admit I never thought about.....)
Politician: Of course!
Oh good lord, so he's taking off all his clothes in the boys bathroom, probably leaving them by the door. One of these days, I'm so going to call a call from the Catholics.

So, who got us this book, because you are on my shit list. I am pretty sure it was a gift for The Politician becuase I was all about Curious George (I was cool before the new movie came out and made it hip again) and did his nursery in that theme. We got a lot of George gifts, most of which he was, of course, not at all interested in.
Anyway, The Wild Child decided this weekend that she likes books. Which is great and all, because I'd love to raise a literary giant, but she is currently obsessed with the above book, and I am about to hide it, or possibly throw it out because I swear she made me read it to her 100 times this weekend.
Actually, it's really cute, because she gets all serious and says "Sit!" and pats the chair next to her. Then she says "Buddy" and gets all giggly when she see the baby bunnies in the book. It was really only cute the first 10 times or so, then I just got annoyed. Hopefully we can steer her to something else very soon or this book is Salvation Army-bound.

No, really, I'm kidding... but the Fall Preview TV Guide is here! I know that I'm the lamest person in the world because I read TV guide and have for as long as I can remember. In fact, I remember going to the grocery store with my mom as a kid and getting excited each week on the day that the TV Guide came out. I always worked the crosswords (sha na na is ALWAYS an answer) and always looked forward to the issue about the new shows so I could plan out my viewing schedule. Now, that has changed somewhat since I now have 2 Tivos, both with dual tuners, so I can in fact record FOUR shows at once! Anyway, in a few days I'll do a post on the shows I'm planning on trying out.
Last year I bought a 4 year subscription on ebay for $4! Isn't that crazy? That transaction combined my two biggest loves, bargains and TV, and made me so giddy!
Yes, I know no one else reads TV Guide (besides my mom), but I really don't care! I am also currently enjoying a subscription to Entertainment that I got as a Christmas gift (soon to end I believe) and a sub to People that has the name of the old owner of our house on there. Now, we've owned our house for almost 8 years, so I have no idea why in March 2007 I started getting a 2 year subscription to People, but I'm not complaining!
Currently going un-read are my subs to Parents and Parenting. Sorry, Politician and Wild Child, right now I'd much rather read about the stars than about healthy snacks, new toys and games we can play together. That's OK w/ you, isn't it?
