because we like you

because I said so

because, in the midnight hour, she cried “more, more, more!”

because, because, because, because, because. because of the wonderful things he does

because the night

because I’m worth it

because of you

because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible

because you’re mine. I walk the line

because knowledge is power!

if I could turn back time…oh, wait! I can!

today’s song, clocks, by coldplay serves as a public service announcement, reminding you to set your clocks back one hour.
but why do we do this on a sunday? it would be so much better on a monday, because if there is one day during the week when I could use an extra hour of sleep, it’s monday. try as I might, I simply cannot find the motivation to rise and start another week of work. I have no problem at all getting up at 7 am on a sunday, when it’s my time to spend–enjoying my coffee, catching up on reading, knitting, or playing with the cats (I live on the wild side). but rising early so I can go earn money to keep me housed, clothed, and fed? notsomuch.

one thing that confuses me though is the on/off switch for daylight savings. this is mainly a problem when I’m resetting a vcr (remember those?) or tv. I’m not a stupid person, but I don’t understand. are we on daylight savings time when it is lighter longer, and off of it when it’s dark earlier? and while we’re on the subject, who excused arizona from partaking of this semi-annual event?

here are 10 more songs appropriate for today:
time is on my side – the rolling stones
too much time on my hands – styx
time (clock of the heart) – culture club
praying for time – george michael
continents of time – eddie from ohio
seconds – u2
wasting my time – default
do you have a little time – dido
time has come today – chambers brothers
sour times – portisehead

moses supposes his toeses are roses

once upon a time, my feet looked like this:

nothing too spectacular, but not gross either.

now, because of psoriatic arthritis, my feet look more like the hobbit’s. it’s not pretty. but I did just save a bunch of money on my car insurance by switching to geico.

here are 10 things that suck about having psoriatic (krissy calls it sorry-ass) arthritis
1. no additional income hookin’ because I can’t wear stilettos
2. no bootcamp
3. no foot massages because OW!
4. I’m tired
5. I’m irritable
6. heinous-looking feet
7. no alcohol because mixed with the medication, I could die or something
8. no footsie
9. no pirouettes in my ballet shoes
10. missing my 1/2 marathon and tiffany finisher’s necklace

10 things that don’t suck about having psoriatic arthritis
1. whining
2. wimpering
3. moaning
4. saving money on pedicures
5. getting waited on
6. getting dropped off at the front door
7. get to walk around in my socks at work
8. don’t have to take out the garbage or recycling
9. people give up their chairs for me
10. can say “my balls hurt”

10 words and phrases

here are a list of words and phrases that I like to use:

bee X bee – be square (ex: “be there or bee X bee”). borrowed from ken karn.

box of hair – used to describe someone stupid. borrowed from beth. (pile of rope and box of rocks also convey similar sentiments).

chabow – effed up. borrowed from krissy.

emmer effer – mother f#$%er

jahunga – super large (ex: “my ass looks jahunga in this outfit”). my sister and I made this one up.

skank whore – when skank isn’t descriptive enough, and whore doesn’t quite cover it, I use both words together.

smarmy – used to describe a gross, slimy guy who usually has a mustache and drives a corvette.

blessed screaming jesus on a whole wheat goddamn cracker – irreverent, yes, but a shockingly colorful way to say “holy sh%t”. borrowed from rescue me.

thrillogy – the retirement community where my parents live. it’s actually called trilogy, but it’s so off-the-hook exciting, I refer to it as thrillogy.

waste of skin – used to describe a useless person.
