    I got an email….

    So I was digging through emails looking for the confirmation email for my new bluetooth when I noticed that TheYear2009@ohyeahitsuckith dot com had sent me an email. Dear Kristine, I’ve kinda heard some of the stuff you’re saying about me and my feelings are deeply hurt. I know our relationship kinda started out on rocky footing. I said some mean things, you said some mean things. I may or may not have written your name in the bathroom at the Mexican food restaurant with some lewd comment underneath. We sorta hit our grove by February though. Remember you were feeling better and I was like, “This is going to be…

    Merry Christmas Random And Odd…

    I hope you all got what you wanted for Christmas this year.  <removing snarky comment> Last year Dan bought me a pink Motorola blue tooth from the girls for Christmas.  In this last year that poor thing has survived so much. A few months ago I pulled the clothes out of the dryer and the damn thing fell out on the floor.  “How the hell?” I wondered how it got in there and then I remembered I put it in my back pocket after the battery died.  I was all bummed out because I actually liked it. It wasn’t one of those ones that you had to stick in your…

    Goodbye 2009

    January — I was sporting my new dark hair and loving it.  I was almost one month into feeling better. We had just spent our first Christmas in 7 years in Shingletown with my family. It was a good month. What I learned: I only like my dark hair for about 2 months. February — I became the proud owner of my first Ipod. What I learned: I know ziltch about being an Ipod owner. March — I turned 37 and Kara turned 16. We spent our birthday in San Francisco roaming around and seeing Wicked. What I learned — The dark hair is officially sucky at this point.  Wicked…

    Holy CRAP!

    I threw out my back on Thursday helping a co-worker get through some really lame paper work. I know, I know, I sound retarded saying I threw out my back doing paper work. Keep in mind I have thrown out my back sneezing, walking and washing my hair. Today, instead of tackling the kitchen cabinets, I decided to catch up on a whole season of Dexter. It wasn’t as scary as I thought it was going to be and it wasn’t nearly as bad as the seasons in the past.  HOLY SHIT, it had a twist at the end though. I was impressed they went as far as they did.…

    MY So-Called Life…

    I’m ending this year of my blog with a lot of things I have learned. This is something that I have heard a million times in many ways, shapes and forms. “Life is short.” “You only get one life.” “Tomorrow is never promised.” Today I was in the kitchen all of the day. I made shredded pork enchiladas. The shredded pork was from dinner the night before.  After I was finished I made chocolate chip cookies, mini cupcakes and a cheesecake.  Each new creation made me smile more than the last.   At some point in my Betty Crocker frenzy I spilled flour all down the front of me and the…

    2009 In Review

    Favorite Movie: Life of Brian. I know it’s not a movie that came out in 2009, but it’s the best movie I saw this year. I think the second favorite would have to be The Hangover. Favorite Song: If Today Was Your Last Day by Nickeback. It was overplayed on the radio, but every time I heard it, I felt like it was written for this year. Favorite Lyric: “So live like you’ll never live it twice. Don’t take the free ride in your own life” Favorite Line: “Jump, Bitches!” My friend Wendi says this all the time…since then she has altered it to fit the moment. Favorite Trip: Oregon…

    Time Warp…

    At least two times a week we are watching Rocky Horror Picture Show.   As many times as it has been on, I still haven’t watched the whole thing yet.  I have seen some of the first, a tiny bit of the middle, but the end I have seen about 15 times now. I roll my eyes whenever the dancing and singing starts (half the time the movie doesn’t have to be on) but the truth is, it actually makes me laugh.
