Currently skies are clear with temperatures ranging in the "holy hell that's cold!" range.


* Confused by: How I can be completely and oddly obsessed with Quaker toasted oatmeal squares, but severely disappointed in the cinnamon version.

* Deciding: I'm going back to school part-time in the summer- debating whether to further my education within my current field (food) or go in a new and entirely unrelated direction. I really don't want to go back to school, but it is currently a necessary evil - kind of like work, bathing and combing my hair.

* Current mood: "meh", with a side of "bah!".

* Contemplating: a trip in March? Go to work early? Use the natural deodorant that irritates my armpits but doesn't contain aluminum vs. the non-natural chock full of aluminum stuff that doesn't make the pits all angry and red.

* Mulling: developing a diet based entirely on rotisserie chicken, Lindt truffles and whole wheat pasta.

*Working on: posting more shenanigans from the "Reader's Choice" weekend extravaganza.

* Attempting: To get my cousin from Winnipeg to leave. Tammie stopped by a few weeks ago for a visit, but she seems to be taking up residence. She is systematically cleaning out the liquor cabinet, she has used most of my hairspray up on her bangs, she almost started the couch on fire when she passed out with a cigarette, she already has a "boyfriend" (a 59 year-old clerk from the gas station down the street) who stays over for "slumber parties", and she leaves streaks of sparkly blue eyeliner and pink blush on my vintage pillowcases.

Bitch has got to go:






Drinking: Green tea- working on my second cup, will probably have a third.

Eating: Nothing- but considering a salad for lunch.

Wondering: Why my cat loves things that smell like shit so much.

Happy for: A short work week, curling irons and "play time" for Whiskeymarie.

Down about anything?: Not so much- maybe the fact that these jeans seem to be giving me a camel toe is bugging me. Oh, and the fact that the neighbor's snow removal company is using leaf blowers to clear her sidewalk as we speak.

Realizing: I have to get my ass ready for work. Now.

Nice bangs, there, gorgeous.

I agree on the Otameal Squares. But they're no Cracklin' Oat Bran.

Make sure that Tammy doesn't have your password or else we'll end up reading unauthorized guest posts.
Love the Quaker Oat Squares, and my 6 year old eats almost nothing else for breakfast.

Suze said...

I say screw school and head for Hollywood. You're great entertainment. Drop Tammy off at the border on the way - but check her pockets first. She looks kind of shifty to me.

Lollie said...

Ah, did you say trip in March? Want some sunshine...?

Whiskeymarie said...

Maurey- Tammie is inspiring, isn't she?

cdp- I think she's actually already stolen my identity. Either that or I bought 14 cases of beer, a ferret and custom-made cowboy boots while I was drunk.

Suze- I want my own sketch show- what does it pay?

Actually, lol- Florida is on the "potential" list- I'll keep you posted...

McGone said...

Tammie is a PBR girl, isn't she? I could see her shotgunning a couple cans in the parking lot of a tractor pull.

By the way, you are totally turning into one of those Cat bloggers. Exactly the type you said you wouldn't become.

Dr. Monkey Von Monkerstein said...

I think I'm falling hard for Tammie. Let me know when she goes back to Winnipeg so I can begin to stalk her.

gorillabuns said...

tammy has a stunning wardrobe. i'm all over her loverboy t-shirt!

Flenker said...

I'm totally with you on 4 of the first 5 points. I'm not as concerned with deoderant as you are. I'm concerned for you, of course, but not of myself.

"Play time" for Whiskeymarie sounds like it could be trouble a'brewin.

dguzman said...

I'm with ya on the natural deodorant that makes pits angry and itchy. (I tried Tom's of Maine) Guess we'll both have to get Alzhei... what? who are you? I think I forgot how to tyeijaiseunc. fuck.

Sean said...

Nice LoverBoy t-shirt. Hope she doesn't kill all the liqour. Have fun.

lizgwiz said...

Tammie looks like one classy broad. I'm betting she doesn't have any deodorant conflicts.

Inarticulate Fumblings said...

Totally stealing the idea for this blog. Love it... love it as much as your bangs...

Stacey said...

Your cousin's hair rawks. Do you think she'd come over and style mine for me ?

feisty said...

are you sure tammie isn't from Proctor, MN? the red jacket is styling. and the bangs are very FeistyMNGirl, circa 11th grade.

Mariposa said...

LOL...and still catching my breath!

Please accept my You Make My Day Award

Kate said...

PLEASE COME PAINT MY WALLS. Love love LOVE your living room.

Gretta said...

Um, yeahhhh. I'm pretty sure I posted a comment here yesterday. I'm pretty sure it wasn't witty or thoughtful, but just said 'TRIP IN MARCH!'

Was it lost with my TPS report?

Again 'TRIP IN MARCH!' Somewhere sunny and warm.

Nature Girl said...

I wanna go on a trip in March...sadly, it won't likely happen. I love those oatmeal square things..havent' had one in a loooooooong time!
Why is aluminum in the deoderant bad? What did I miss?

Stefanie said...

It was only a matter of time before you played with those new bangs of yours.

Also, I agree about the Oatmeal Squares. The cinnamon flavor blows.

Lollie said...

Travelgretta can come too...oh, ok, stacie as well.

Nocturnal said...

LOL, love the finger in the nose shot; well done WM. You like to have fun on your blog.

Cheers
