Soph was playing while waiting for her appointment (which resulted in the finding of her 2nd cavity in a row. Hmm.) and I was thumbing through gossip mags. My realization came from People magazine – the issue that had all the Oscars coverage.
Boobs’ sister has a double. Named Johnny Weir. They look scarily alike but she’s in no way as talented, well made up or fashionable as he is.
Here’s a picture of Johnny Weir:
Actually the more I look at the picture of Johnny that reminds me of Stinkhole (the sister) I also realize they both look like Peewee Herman.
Once again though, both Peewee and Johnny wear makeup and are more well-groomed.
Oh, I forgot. You’re probably wondering what she looks like right? Here:
Ok, so I modified the picture a bit but I’m sure you get the idea.
Last night my daughter lost a baby tooth. Every time she’d bite her food it would hurt. Oh, and the adult tooth was growing right behind it and it was probably telling the baby tooth to get the fuck out of the way.
Every night after we put Soph to bed she always finds an excuse to come back downstairs. One time it was to bring my slippers that I’d forgotten in her room, another night it was for some random toy that she tried to smuggle her iPod in to bring back to bed, another time it was to get a drink of water even though the bathroom is right next to hers and there’s a cup right in there.
Last night she came down with a mouthful of blood and said she pulled her tooth. Oh! OK. I gave her something to wipe up with and off to bed she went. I semi-consciously told myself the Tooth Fairy better visit before I went to bed.
This morning she showed me the Toonie from the Tooth Fairy. I didn’t end up doing my TF job and I know for a fact that Boobs didn’t do it.
So, it’s one of those times that I’m glad she doesn’t tidy her room much and there’s often loose change on her dresser.
Boobs has eclectic taste in music. Maybe that’s not even the right word. Diverse? Varied? Obscure? While we both love Depeche Mode and a bunch of other 80s classics (Platinum Blonde, The Fixx, The Cure, Psychedelic Furs, etc) there are … Continue reading →
I fell off the workout wagon so many months ago, that both my muscle tone, hips and thighs have been left dragging in the dust.
I have 2 excuses: the first is that a year ago we adopted our 2nd daughter which involved a 2-week trip to Thailand, then jet-lag and bonding with the little one and not being able to get to the gym because there’s personal protocol to spend as much time at the beginning of the bonding process with just immediate family so I was not about to put her in a gym daycare several times a week.
I did the Jillian Micheals workouts for a bit but got really tired of them.
Next (excuse #2) winter came (and hasn’t left yet) and I was in big hibernation mode.
Even though it’s still stupidly cold outside, the sun has given me a bit more motivation because the warmth is sure to follow those golden rays and I’ve finally had enough of not working out enough. My new favourite source for exercise is Bodyrock.tv aka, The Daily Hiit. You can check out their web site but you have to subscribe via email, Facebook or join Pinterest to get access to the new programs. Once you do you can usually access them all on their youtube channel.
I’m one of those people that has to have an answer for everything. I don’t mean comebacks in an argument – I’m talking needing to know why, what, why did something happen – needing to hear an answer or ending … Continue reading →
