daylight savings, you saucy beast





I know, everyone else seems thrilled to have gotten an extra hour of sleep – but I don’t love clock changes in any direction, my brain cannot adjust and then I am always hungry at weird times. I would much rather have a no change schedule, get me up in the dark give me sunset after 5 PM and I am way happier.

Why daylight savings is stupid, according to me.

I forgot that my stove and microwave clocks had not been adjusted. I was roasting potatoes that were not going to hold up if roasting did not occur soon. See that it’s 11:30, sure I ate breakfast at 8:30 (was using the phone when I had cereal), but why not make eggs and eat this with some potatoes. Oh yeah, it’s only really about 90 minutes after breakfast when I realize it after I’ve made the eggs. Yay for second breakfast which is something I only expect of athletes and mothers who get up with their kids at 4:30 AM.

I don’t sleep in anymore, 7.5 hours is what the body needs at most. I can go with less, but once I get past 8 hours I am exhausted. Sundays snoozing I miss you. I am awake now at 4:45 forcing additional sleep to make me more tired.

I wanted to eat lunch at 10:30 today. I was so hungry that I ate all my snacks before noon (two apples, I am not a horrible snacker).

Sunset before 5 PM is just crazy. It was night time at 4:45 which is insane to me

Can we settle on one time for now and forever? Thanks!

Happy Halloween


Happy Halloween. I live across the street from the cutest grocery store that's had scores of pumpkins all season long - so I've been enjoying the pop of orange when I look at my window every single day. Is it wrong to secretly be looking forward to the Christmas trees that must be coming out soon? I know, I know one holiday at a time.

Anyway, I hope you all have safe and wonderful holidays out there tonight. Please be extra careful, with the Friday night my brain just thinks people are going to be making less then good decisions, so remember - I want to read your weekend recaps.

This weekend should be a good one. I get to see some little ones on Saturday, along with their parents. Sunday, one of my friends from the tri-state is stopping by before heading home.

See you on Monday!

Donna Martin Graduates



Beverly Hills, 90210 – was a show that I was not allowed to watch as a kid. My mom thought it was far too risky for my eight year old self to be allowed to watch. Unjustly, my sister could watch this show, and all I wanted to do was sneak this. I would try my darnest and just sit and be so quite on the couch in hopes Mom wouldn’t catch me still there eyes glued. Sometimes I might have gotten the first tiny bit before I was told to go to bed. I knew this show was cool, and my friends and I would call play Barbies with the character names from the show – I always wanted to be Brenda (she wasn’t so bitchy in the beginning) and my friend loved Andrea (who I thought was a total nerd). Once I became an adult I watched the entire series on SoapNet when that network was still on and was good for all the reruns in chronological order. I’ve learned many a life lesson from watching one of the best shows ever (and really could have totally spent better parts of my adult years not watching TV, but I’ll blame Mom for not letting me watch in my youth). Some of the better life lessons?  

Brandon Walsh will always be the boy scout, and Dylan McKay will be the bad boy that you shouldn't want to be with, but oh he's so broken and dreamy. You should pick Brandon, he's going to treat you better then Dylan.

Brandon works with the coolest adults in both his jobs, anyone else pick up on that the Beach Club boss is none other then Richard Weber from Grey's? Nat and Richard (cannot remember his name from 90210) treated B.Walsh with respect but also stepped in when he needed some non-parental adult guidance.

Everything can be solved at the Peach Pit. I've always wanted to have a place like the Peach Pit in my life, you know some of your friends will always be there anytime you swing by.

Mrs. Walsh (Cindy) gives the best advice - everyone wanted a mom like Cindy.

If you make a mistake, your friends will rally around you, hence the title. When Donna was drunk at the prom, because David's dad gave the kids champers, she was told she could not graduate. Low and behold a rally was held, and the entire school chanted "Donna Martin Graduates".

coffee, the drink of the gods


Coffee and I are having a slight love affair these days, I wake up, I think about coffee. Before bed I am thinking about the next cup. I jones for the afternoon Dunkin Donuts run daily at work. It might be a slight problem. I've also started drawing little smiley faces on my work cups because of the design.

Please send help, or more coffee.

On that note, I hope to get back to some regular posting. Lots to catch up on.
