An Open Letter to Bret Michael

Dear Bret,

I have enjoyed Rock of Love 1, 2 and now Bus. I love the fact that you are from Pittsburgh, and I appreciate how hard it is for you to find true love being a Rock Star. But let’s be honest here, you aren’t really looking for someone to be your wife anymore. I seriously believed you in Rock of Love 2, Ambre was the perfect girl for you (and you almost dumped her on day one). I wish she didn’t want a career for herself because I could see you two together, forever. But after episode 3 of Bus, I question your motives. At first I was willing to forgive you for all the silicone you kept on the Bus, I just figured you might want to use them as air bags in case of a bus accident. And you even kicked off the girl who had plastic surgery to look like Daisy in the first round—you were so on the right track. But taking your girls to a strip club on a first date? Come on! do you really want someone to be your ‘soul mate’ who would just strip down in front of anyone? And it was totally un-cool of you to rag on Beverly because she didn’t want to dance like a whore! She has kids dude, she doesn’t want to embarrass them plus that isn’t the type of girl she is. From everything you say Beverly is the perfect girl for you this season. She is smart, pretty, she is into your music, she is athletic, and everything you claim to look for in a mate. The only thing is those type of girls are consistently the girls you get rid of, just to keep the T&A around. I will give you that Beverly isn’t all T&A and she may not be the ‘hottest’ girl there, but she is more of what you say you want than any other girl there. And what did you do to her in week 3? You had her as the final 2 with the crazy porno clepto chick! At least Beverly isn’t an idiot like 95% of the girls there. I’m sure Ashley couldn’t carry on a decent conversation for more than 3 minutes. I appreciate the fact you want a hot chick. And I’m not denying chemistry in the bedroom isn’t important. But Brett, please remember what makes a relationship last…personality. Looks fade, but stupidity is forever. So Brett I beg you keep Beverly around and give her a real chance. After all we all know what you are really looking for and that is a Pittsburgh girl, you’ve been spoiled. And after all we all know that Pittsburgh girls are 100% real. We don’t need to get our breasts pumped up to size triple G, because if we did, we couldn’t fit in our Steelers’ jersey. So Brett good luck in finding love on a Bus, but when you don’t, I’ll be watching season 4…Rock of Love Pittsburgh where you will find your real soul mate.

Sincerely,

TTG

Random Musings

I'm home today, no work, so you get 2 posts. From time to time things happen that make me go hmmmmmmmm. Kinda like in the C&C Music Factory way. Here is a list of things for today.

1. Oh Target, why do you sell these? Do people really need to wear these pants pictured here?


2. Dear Lady at Target today, When did it become acceptable to talk on a cell phone in a public bathroom?

3. Why do I have a pair of XL Maternity pants that no longer fit, but my L Maternity pants do?

4. Work computer, why couldn't I access you from home today? You play this game of when I really don't need you, I can get you, but when I need you, you are not found.

5. Hormones. Only you can make me cry at an episode of Desperate Housewives where someone I didn't even know was a character died.

6. Why does spending 8 hours at work feels like it is an eternity. Spending 8 hours at home, feels like 5 minutes.

Hang Over Monday

It all started Saturday night. With the snow. So we decided that Sunday we were 'snowed in' and didn't have to go anywhere. Which was very exciting for me a Lazy Sunday. Just look how beautiful it was outside.



So since I wasn't going anywhere, why bother showering and getting dressed right? And what harm is that? There was no motivation, and sadly the motivation hasn't set in today either.
Well on a normal Monday I would have no problem, but today is Hang Over Monday! The Steelers won the AFC Championship last night. It was such an exciting game I thought I might go into labor during the 4th quarter! Luckily I didn't. But I was up late watching the news, and just enjoying the win. Thankfully today is a work holiday so I didn't have to get up early and get dressed, but now I still see no reason to shower and get dressed. The only thing that is helping me is that I think the cat is avoiding me until I shower ;). That and I need to go to the Post Office. I'm also stuck between feeling gross and not caring. Which is sad. So I will just suck it up and shower and be done with it. But the lesson learned is, it's never good to let a Lazy Sunday turn into a Hang Over Monday, because then I think you are just one step away from being mistaken for being homeless.
The good thing about today is that WTMD in Baltimore will be broadcasting 6 songs from WYEP Pittsburgh today at 1pm. This was all part of a bet between WYEP and WTMD on who was going to win the AFC Championship. Looks like WTMD lost!! Take that Baltimore. I hope it's the Here We Go Song 6 times in a row!!!

Why the Steelers Will Win the Super Bowl.

This post may be a bit premature. But this thought occurred to me today during my 1 hour and 15 minute commute of 10 miles this morning.

The thought: The Steelers will win the Super Bowl in Tampa. Not simply because they are the best team, even though we all know they are ;).

There is only one good, solid, unarguable reason that the Steelers will win the Super Bowl. And that reason is: Our baby will be born in 2009.

Doesn’t make sense, does it? Well, here is how I see it. Steelers Super Bowl wins are in the baby’s DNA. My husband was born the year the Steelers won Super Bowl 9. The year I was born the Steelers Super Bowl 13. And since we were both born in such wonderful Steelers success, how can our child not be born the year of a Steelers Super Bowl victory?

The way I see it baby will be born the year the Steelers won the Super Bowl, Super Bowl 43. And then I will have to plan out all of baby’s siblings (if we choose to have more kids after baby comes) births to coincide with Steelers Super Bowl Victories.


P.S. Please don’t blame my post if the Steelers lose against Baltimore. We all know it is really Mayor SteelerStahl’s fault for changing his name.

God Loves Donuts

This was my morning. I woke up early, and thought "Sweet Jesus, I'm up early I can stop at Dunkin Donuts, let me sit and watch the news for 5 mins before I shower."
Well, 45 mins later, I wake up on the couch just in time for my usual shower time, but since Hubby had to shower too this morning this put me on late time. So after we both are ready we head to the car. He's driving me to work, I look at the clock, and see that I need to be at work in 15 mins, but it's at least a 30 min drive. So I make the decision, it's donut time. Screw on-time-ness, heck I was staying late tonight anyway and I really wanted some donuts. So we drive the 5 mins out of the way to Dunkin Donuts. SCORE!!!
I decide to try to make things better at work, since now I should be pushing 45 mins late, I would buy everyone some munchkins. This way they will forget what time I walked in the door. In and out of the big Double D in 5 mins.
We get on the parkway east, and what to my wondering eyes doesn't appear? Traffic. There was no traffic. I got to work in 20 mins...I was only about 15 mins late. Which, the way I see it, with normal traffic and no stop is what time I would have gotten in anyway.

The only explanation is that God wanted me to have donuts this morning so he got rid of all the traffic. He was on my side. I will have to remember him for this tomorrow when I'm on the parkway east for 45mins dropping the f-bomb at all the idiots who don't know how to merge. I will think back and say, "I can handle the traffic today, for yesterday the Lord looked down upon me and said 'have a donut, I'll clear up traffic'"

Your love is like Bad TV, and Bad TV is what I need

I would like to consider myself an educated woman. I would like to think I have good taste. I enjoy reading and museums and the theater and the symphony. So why is it I can't get enough of bad TV? I wish I could say my bad TV addiction was limited to classier fair that comes on the history channel or at least TLC, but sadly I'm addicted to VH1. It started out harmlessly with a little Scott Baio here and bit of Bret Michaels there. It was so innocent and fun like a train wreck where no one got hurt except slutty whores. Well Scott Baio's show was a bit better done and there weren't as many whores and it felt like a real show.
But I was hooked. I've followed it up with several seasons of both shows, including the new Rock of Love Bus. But they turned out to be just gateway TV. I soon fell into very bad TV, probably the worse TV ever. With shows like Celebrity Rehab, Rock of Love Charm School and I Love Money. I can't stop. I must watch these ex-strippers, former celebrities, and wanna be celebrities live their life and fight for their man, their sobriety and even for a few bucks. This is worse than Lifetime. I just can't turn the channel. I've even taken to Tivoing these episodes!
These folks are so classy that in the last episode of Rock of Love a bi-sexual stripper put a test tube shot in her va-jay-jay and another chick (who is only a lesbian when she has been drinking) drank it. Nothing says quality TV like some wanna-bes trying to be famous and doing ANYTHING to prove it.
I wish I could turn away from this TV and focus on quality fair like the new or PBS, but even as I type this I am looking forward to Sober House....Andy Dick joins the former cast of Celebrity Rehab and try to live in LA Sober!!!! My TIVO IS SET.

The Start of a New...Something...

As 2009 begins everyone is making resolutions. I am no execption. I usually hate making resolutions, but this year is different. This year I feel like change is all around us and it's impossible not to get involved. So here are 4 resolutions I'm making.

1) Write more
I've always had the urge to write. I always felt as though I had things to share. But have never been focused/disciplined enough to actually do it. 2008 brought so many new wonderful people in my life and what did they have in common? They were all into social media and blogging. So I figured what better way to jump back into writing than blogging. I can't promise I will blog daily, but my goal is at least once a week. Focus and discipline here I come.

2) Panic less

I am a very panicky. Which leads to being a huge worrier. Which will probably cause me to have a stroke or an ulcer. That aside, I am due to give birth next month and I need to learn how to relax. Not only will it help the birthing process, it should help me be a better first time mom. This may be the hardest resolution anyone has every made. But I will succeed, or at least panic that I won't ;).

3) Live by the idea that "Less is More"

With a baby on the way, a new car, hopefully a house, and the economy tanking this year there is no better time to cut back than '09. That means less trips to Starbucks and Cogo's and being more prepared. Basically before I purchase something I need to ask myself "Do I really need that?" if the answer is no, I won't buy it. Sounds simple enough doesn't it? But Less is More, doesn't just apply to new purchases. I will be purging my current life as well. Clothes I don't wear-gone, movies/books/cds I don't watch/read/listen to-gone, email that has been in my inbox since 2000-gone. I have so much extra clutter physical and cyber that I need to let go of. Less is More!

4) Clean more

Cleaning more kinda flows directly from the above. I need to work on keeping my apt. livable. Right now (and most of the time) I would be mortified if a visitor just stopped in. So the cleaning goal means if anyone drops by, my apt. will be presentable and I won't want to hang my head in shame.

So that is a bit about me. Most of my posts won't be this long, but when you start something, it takes some explaing. I hope you will share this journey with me.
