And They Said It Wouldn't Last

Happy Blogiversary to me!

One year and 244 posts later I'm still here, still ranting and raving.

I Dream of Johnny

Last night I dreamt about Johnny Damon and today he scored a career-high five runs to go along with three hits and three RBIs (including 2 HR's). I should defintely dream about him more often.

Moan-er Lisa

Maybe I wouldn't be such a cranky bitch if... nah. Who am I kidding? Even if the moon and the stars all aligned in my favor I would still find something to bitch 'n moan about. So what am I going to bitch about today?

And the winner is: my fricking stomach and this fricking UC and whatever else is fricking going on in there. Is it too much to ask for me to take a shower w/o having to get out to poop? Gross but true. This is the deal: in an attempt to get me off the steroids (yeah!) I'm down to a 5mg every other day. Which is great because all the nasty side effects are going away (yeah! again) but my pooping is coming back to pre-'roid strength (boo!). I'm sick of being sick, sick of being tired, sick of being sick & tired. I have no energy or desire to leave my house. Sadly, also have no food in the house so I must go to the store at some point this weekend. And Target to return those goddamn too-tight t-shirts. I was invited to an out-of-town wedding this weekend and decided not to attend due to lack of funds. Now how glad am I that I don't have to schlep all the way to East Bumfuck PA feeling like I do. Let me tell you: SO FUCKING HAPPY! That might the only thing I have to be happy about this week. That, and last night I washed my couch blanket, the one me & Tiger curl up under every night while watching TV & it smells all just-came-out-of-the-dryer good. Also, no more cramps!

P.S. to ER: Enough with the fucking Africa storyline already. Don't care. Not interested. Go back to Chicago.

Why I Hate Everyone & Everything Part I of ???

If you don't want to hear how I'm feeling: don't ask. I still might give you the gory details unsolicited but not asking definitely decreases the risk.

Do not give me medical advice unless your name has an MD after it. If you are my sister you are not exempt from this rule.

Don't put 16 gazillon men on base and only score 2 runs. That sucks and is boring.

I don't care if it's what's in. Unless you have great looking legs (hint: great looking legs do not look like tree stumps) do not give in to the rolled up jeans to the knees look. And if you must be a shameless follower, shave your legs ladies.

Here's a novel idea: instead of talking about your wedding all day why don't you actually do some work?

Guess what people? It's not illegal (yet) to smoke on the streets of NY. So quit with the hand waving, commenting and fake gagging when walking past me. Don't like it? Go live in L.A.

*a women's lament*

oh my god the cramps are killing me. like daggers through my ovaries. geez, when the fuck is menopause gonna kick in? it's not like i need to get my period, i'm not having kids, don't need these eggs, don't need this fucking misery every month. don't need the swollen breasts, the sanitary napkins, and the bullshit guessing game of when is my period going to come because it's not like i'm on any kind of schedule or anything. of course i haven't had sex in a gazillion years so it's not like i have to worry about NOT getting my period. that's a whole 'nother kind of hell right there. anyway back to my cramps. they fucking hurt and i want it to stop now. the only thing that's going to make me feel better is about 12 tylenol and a snickers bar.

Fantasy Girl

For 2 whole days in a row I have NOT been in last place in my fantasy league. This represents a HUGE improvement, as I've been in last place since Opening Day (thanks to Hudson & C. Zambrano). I have no illlusions that this is just a temporary situation and I will resume my customary sucki-ness soon.

(Wo)Man's Best Friend

Growing up we didn't have any pets. Sure we had a hamster here, a goldfish there but they didn't last long; and were never replaced. It wasn't something I really wanted, as a matter of fact I had a deep distrust of cats & dogs. Until Kitty came along. When Steve & I lived in Texas one morning I opened the door to find Kitty sitting on the fence, she came inside and never left. I swear Kitty was a Dead-head in a former life, this was the mellowest cat I've ever seen. When we moved back to NY we decided that Kitty needed a companion so we found Junior in a local shelter. And then came Mushball, who, was, quite the mushball. A few years later I had to put Jr. to sleep so back to the pound I went (this had to be around '90 or '91). There were 3 rooms full of cats and the pound lady told us not to stress too much on picking a cat, that a cat would pick us. Immediately a little gray striped cat came running over to us. I really wasn't interested in getting a young cat, so I kinda ignored him, instead trying to interest some other cats. But this little bugger was persisent and soon Tiger was firmly entrenched in my household. He was a real beast, but in a good natured way. Petting him was a real adventure and you left your toes exposed at your own risk. Fast forward a few years & it was time to say goodbye to Kitty. At that time I had kinda inherited my (ex) boyfriends cat so the cat count remained at three. Then I had to put Mush to sleep, I was devasted, as she was my baby. Tiger & Jimi got along farily well, Tiger for all his bluster, was a real lover. When Jimi had to be put down & it was just me & Tiger you could see how much he missed having other cats around. So back to the pound for Honi. And that's where we stand now cat-wise. Except that I can see that time is catching up to Tiger. And that makes me so so sad. He's been with me for so long, is such a big part of my life I can't imagine life without him. Even when he's being a pain in my ass & trying to eat the food off my plate. Or hogging the bed (you'd be surprised how much space a cat can take up). I know the day is coming sooner rather later and I want to cry just thinking about it.

Things I Could've Done Tonite But Didn't Because I Can't Stop Pooping (Again)

Thursday, April 20, 2006
Dear Best Buy on Fifth Avenue,

You suck. Your employees suck. Your store layout sucks. I will voluntarily burn in hell before I EVER step foot in your store again.

All I wanted was one little wire, one little measly wire to run between my mini-speakers & not-an-ipod. And it took almost an hour between trying to find someone to help me and running up and down those fucking steps and again, trying to find someone to help me (where do you get your employees Best Buy? from the Dumb & Lazy Employment Agency?) to find out you either a. don't carry that b. never heard of such a thing or c. are out of stock.

Thanks for nothing Best Buy. I will be laughing loud & hard when I read you have filed for bankruptcy.

Things That Annoy Me

*Giving my new insurance information to the idiots at the doctors office EVERY FUCKING TIME and still having to call a bazillion times because they billed my old insurance.

*People who douse themselves in perfume/cologne. A little goes a long way folks.


*The programming executives at ABC who keep fucking with "Lost." I love the show but why is there never more than 2 new episodes in a row?

*Women who act like they are the fucking shit because they have spawned.

*Steve Phillips.

*The Mets doing better than the Yankees.

*My sister calling me on Monday mornings at work.

*The fact that NONE of my clothes fit me. AT ALL.

*Emily Quartermaine.

Over The Hills & Far Away

I've been lucky enough to see some pretty incredible concerts in my lifetime -- so many that I can't even begin to recount them here. One of my biggest regrets is that I never got to see Led Zeppelin live. Oh man, how I loved Led Zep. They were right up there with Skynyrd on my favorites list. I must've seen "The Song Remains the Same" about a gazillion times -- but that was the closest I came to seeing them in person. Me & Justin just watched "How the West Was Won" DVD and holy shit, did these boys know how to rock. It's really cool cause Justin is totally into all the "classic" rock bands: The Who, Pink Floyd, Black Sabbath, LZ. Hell, the kid even listens to the Ramones.

Yesterday Justin, Emma & I went on the Staten Island ferry with about 20 million other people and then had dinner in Chinatown. My goal was to keep the kids walking until they couldn't walk no more. And then this morning we took a nice stroll around the 'hood, enjoying the sunshine and warm weather. And now thankfully, they have gone home. Peace & quiet have been restored to my humble abode. And my cats can now come out of hiding.

Shouldn't I Have All of This

Passionate Kisses (lucinda williams)

Is it too much to ask
I want a comfortable bed that won't hurt my back
Food to fill me up
And warm clothes and all that stuff
Shouldn't I have this
Shouldn't I have this
Shouldn't I have all of this, and

Passionate kisses
Passionate kisses, whoa oh oh
Passionate kisses from you

Is it too much to demand
I want a full house and a rock and roll band
Pens that won't run out of ink
And cool quiet and time to think
Shouldn't I have this
Shouldn't I have this
Shouldn't I have all of this, and

Passionate kisses
Passionate kisses, whoa oh oh
Passionate kisses from you

Do I want too much
Am I going overboard to want that touch
I shout it out to the night
Give me what I deserve, 'cause it's my right
Shouldn't I have this (shouldn't I)
Shouldn't I have this (shouldn't I)
Shouldn't I have all of this, and

Passionate kisses
Passionate kisses, whoa oh oh
Passionate kisses from you
Passionate kisses
Passionate kisses, whoa oh oh
Passionate kisses from you

You might know this song, it was a HUGE hit for Mary Chapin Carpenter back in the 90's. I prefer the version by Lucinda Williams, who wrote the song and is a phenomenal singer/songwriter. But I'll save my Lucinda Williams raving for another post. What I wanted to whine, I mean post, about was how I heard this song on my not-an-ipod earlier and it made me think. Think about how 10 years ago when this song came out I could really relate to the lyrics and how 10 years later nothing has really changed. Which sucks. Alot. Makes me wonder about myself. Wonder if I have some sort of man-repellant thing happening which makes me invisible to men or instantly turns me into a "friend." Is it just a fucked up twist of fate that I haven't met ANYONE who wants to be with me (who's not married or involved)? Or is it me? Am I too picky? Too opininated? Too ______________ ? Granted I don't put myself in a lot of man meeting situations anymore but that's only 'cause I got sick & tired to being ignored/rejected/lied to. Grrr.... when did this get so hard?

Waiting by the Phone

I'm waiting for a co-worker (c'mon Kevin, call me!) to get back to me so I thought I'd sneak in a blog update (otherwise I would NEVER EVER blog during work hours) (HA!). Had dinner with the BF & her family last night over at her mom's. Delicious. Nothing beats a (good) home-cooked meal. The chicken soup rocked. But what really rocked was my little darling, Emma (who's 7), made a scarf for my bday. I don't know who was smiling more, me or her. She was so proud and I was so touched. I mean, she MADE me a scarf. With her own 2 little hands (with some help from mom of course). (Kevin, are you ever going to call me back?) I'm gonna take her and her bro to Chinatown for dinner this weekend. And maybe sneak in a trip on the Staten Island ferry. I'll be glad when Easter is over, because I have NO willpower when it comes to jelly beans. I'm especially partial to the really cheap ones. You can keep your overpriced Jelly Belly's, I don't care about flavors, dammit, I want sugar. Keeping my eye on the Yankee game, Yanks up 4-0 in the bottom of the 4th. (Kevin, what the hell are you doing?). (Kevin, WTF??? did you forget about me?). Some good news on the steroid front -- I stop taking them in two weeks. Which is great because? the side effects suck. Truth be told, I'm a little nervous about stopping because we really don't know how my body is going to react and I certainly don't want to relapse. Of course I automatically assume the worst thing is going to happen. Keep your fingers crossed for me. (Kevin, you are dead to me now!).

A Special Birthday Present from Derek Jeter

Yanks win 9-7, courtesy of an 8th inning HR by the captain, Derek Jeter. Way to go DJ! Otherwise I would have been a very unhappy birthday girl. It was a gloriously beautiful day, blue skies, sunshine and baseball.

Am I Old or Just Stupid?

I've spent the 1.5 hours searching EVERY INCH of the house for my laundry card. After looking high & low and everywhere in between do you know where I found it? In my pants pocket. The pants I am wearing. DOH! Now where did I put my keys?

Let's Go Mets (Just Kidding)

Scenes from Shea last night

This is J. I love you big guy even if you are a Mets fan.

Dedicated to the One I Love

Sometimes I make myself so mad I want to kick myself. Hard. Yesterday I was e-talking with my former crush, asking him about the area on the other side of the the Brooklyn Bridge. And he invited himself along for my planned jaunt. Which is great. I look forward to it. But instead of just thinking "That's nice, B. & will hang out, do something fun" and leave it at that, I have to go and start thinking "does this mean he's changed his mind and wants to be with me and who'se apt. should we sell when we move in together?" I mean, damn. Talking about setting myself up for disappointment. Why can't I ever just accept things at face value? Why can't I stop jumping the gun and let things happen? And it's not just this one time. I do it all the time, especially where the opposite sex is involved. I have this whole TOTALLY fabulous thing all worked out in my mind and then when it doesn't happen (hello? it's a fantasy) I'm heartbroken. Am I the only one who does this? I get so caught up in my pie-in-the-sky scenario that I don't grasp that maybe something great is happening right now, something that's actually real. I don't appreciate the moment. Why the hell do I think so much?

Since I have been thinking of B, I've always imagined (see what I mean?) that if this would be his song to me. We went to see the Jayhawks and they did this song and he was sitting right next to me and I kept waiting for him to grab my hand, look deeply into my eyes.... of course that didn't happen & I spent the rest of the show slightly depressed. What kind of fuck-up-ness is that?

I'm Gonna Make You Love Me

The world never ends
It's only the beginning
And we can't pretend
To discover it's meaning

We talked for hours at a time
Then I came to my senses
You're more than a friend
You're my perfect lover

I'll never be all you want me to
But that's all right

I'm gonna make you love me
I'm gonna dry your tears
And we're gonna stay together
For a million years

It's the least I can do
Just to make you my baby
No words could describe
Oh, pinch me I'm dreaming

Your hair's long and black
As it lays 'cross my pillow
When I stare in your eyes
I get lost in your glory

I'll never be all you want me to
But that's all right

I'm gonna make you love me
I'm gonna dry your tears
And we're gonna stay together
For a million years

When you were a little girl
Your great big world came tumbling down
So sad

Yeah, the river it bends
But it flows to the ocean
And baby here I am
I'm your sea of devotion

I'll never be all you want me to
But that's all right

I'm gonna make you love me
I'm gonna dry your tears
And we're gonna stay together
For a million years....

Got A Bridge For Sale?

I am a born and bred New Yorker. And it took me 30 years to go to the top of the Empire State Building. Not that it took 30 years to get to the top of the ESB, I didn't go until I was 30. Just so you understand the difference.

I've been thinking of other-only-in-NY-experiences-that-I-haven't-yet-
experienced-but-would-like-to-before-I die and #1 on my list? Walk over the Brooklyn Bridge. I always see pics of the BB when the subway isn't running and people are trekking back & forth but have never been on it myself. I hear the views of Manhattan are fabulous from the promenade. Since I can count on one hand the number of times I've been to Brooklyn so this would also fit into my I-like-to-explore-different-neighborhoods thing. Nothing like being a tourist in your own hometown.

First Comments

You know what really irks me? The people commenting on blogs (esp. the more popular ones like dooce or amalah) who write first. What is the big fucking deal people? Believe me no one cares. It's not like other people are saying "damn I'm not first, now I won't comment." And half the time they are not first, by the time they've posted someone else has beaten them to it. GET A LIFE. And if you want to be guaranteed to be a first, comment here. One blog, no waiting.

I. AM. SO. TIRED. Stayed up way past my bedtime last time watching the Yanks crush the A's.

G showed up just at the start of 24. I filled him in on Jack, perimeters, schematics, Chloe and how we ARE RUNNING OUT OF TIME. Now I've been watching this show since Season 1 and I enjoy good tv escapism like the rest of the free world but 24 writers? If you're reading this? GIVE ME A BREAK. Please find a plot and stick with it. This season is bordering on boring and tedious, not to mention dumb. Dumb as in mountain lion chasing Kim dumb.

Post 24 it was time for the unveiling of the 06 Yankees. Man, I love this fucking game. We were high-fiving so much my hand still hurts. I went to bed with the score 13-1, pretty certain of a victory.

And that internet was my Monday night. A great friend, a great game.

Glory Days

Baseball is back. Home runs. Rain delays. Inning ending double plays. Winners and losers. The Yanks don't play til 10p so I have to wait a few more hours. Which kinda sucks 'cause 10p? That's my bedtime. On the other hand it kinda works 'cause that means there's no conflict with 24 and the glory that is Jack Bauer. Who may or may not be dead *SNORT* if you believe Jack is dead I have a bridge in Brooklyn for sale, would you be interested?

My friend G is coming up from MD tonight since he has a thing in Jersey tomw. Which is great since he's also a big Yankee fan so it'll be fun to watch the game with him. At least the first few innings 'cause mama needs her beauty sleep. Just hope he doesn't expect me to converse during the Hour of Jack Bauer.

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

People ask me what I do in winter when there's no baseball. I'll tell you what I do. I stare out the window and wait for spring. - Rogers Hornsby

For some people it's Christmas. For me, it's now. This is my time. The start of baseball season brings me a joy nothing else can quite equal. The time to read box scores and check the standings. Getting to know the new guys and saying hello to the old veterans. Using terms like "ERA" and "WHIP" in a sentence.

I've been waiting for this day since the last out of the World Series was made. PLAY BALL BABY!
