You know... I never noticed that. Rich Girl has always irked me in some way, and I KNEW it was more than just the fact that it's a knock-off of a much better written song. Now I know what exactly it was that I couldn't quite put my finger on. After playing that song billions of times in a pit orchestra, it's simple things like that which you, at least subconsciously, hear and it just bothers you to no end.

Whoops used the wrong name so I didn't get the cool image thing. My virginal eyes went blind from those images btw. :-P

I say no. Join those who refuse to remove their wisdom teeth until their faces are swollen up and in so much pain that they really have no choice! Think of it as making a stand against the oral surgeons of America.

Should I imply that you are saying that attractive girls don't like to have to put brain power into anything? I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt and pretend that you did not :-P Actually I think we all stopped reading at the line "boobies boobies boobies." Or maybe that was just me. :-)

Interesting tidbit- I worked for NCS Pearsons logistics department for this very TSA contract. I also worked with that woman. Our entire building was laid off after we lost the contract to someone underbidding us after she, among other people, declared that it would be impossible to cut down our costs to make our bid lower. I'm really glad that she lives in a million dollar mansion while the people who were laid off because of her had quite the opposite. Good times.

You haven't really EXPERIENCED the container store until you go in though. Then you'll be hooked. :-)

I read that restaurants such as Ruby Tuesday have now figured out (what? like a year later at least)that while people SAY that they want healthier food they don't really want to eat it in comparison to yummier choices. Well, no shit. It's like always saying you should eat a salad but then prefering to eat a bacon cheeseburger. Yum... bacon.
To see a skunk in your dream, suggests that you may be driving people away or turning people off. Alternatively, it indicates that all is calm about a certain situation but you do not necessarily like it or agree with it.

No mention of your high placing in poker on Sat night? I'm saddened :-( you should be gloating! :-P

The problem with My Name is Earl and the Office (which I originally did want to see) is that they placed them opposite House which is just no good. I was excited for Reunion and liked the first episode but then I forgot to watch it last week. I do that a lot ;-) The WB show about the sisters looks interesting but may not be your thing- you know, since you're a guy.

I work right in the Mark Winkler Preserve, and right next to the pond. In a Mark Winkler building. Perhaps that could be a loophole to having sex in the preserve but still be indoors- thus no chafing. It's too bad all the people I work with are strange or I'd have to try it out ;-) j/k

Nah just their existence is enough. Existence is a word that always looks like it is spelled wrong even when it's not.

1. I get oddly excited about opening a new toothbrush, especially if it's a new brand or kind. I also believe that keeping a toothbrush for longer than 2 months means that it is growing bacteria between its bristles and will lead to my teeth rotting out. This is not based on any sort of fact beyond my own neurosis.

What you SHOULD be doing on Saturday is watching the ND/USD game at 3:30. Unarguably the best non-VT game of the year.
#21) Thursday, October 20, 2005
As for the Black Eyed Peas, I would agree with you but I have to admit that "Don't Phunk with My Heart" has grown on me. I blame the brain-washing sonic waves that my radio emits.
#22) Thursday, October 20, 2005
Ahh so true! I LOVE the Firefly theme song. In the extras on the DVD you can hear Joss Whedon (who actually wrote it) sing it. Check it out if you haven't already :-)

1) There was distinctly a moment in the 2nd quarter I think it was that they called Marcus Michael. So sad.
2) Did you know that the Sears in Landmark mall makes all of their announcements over the loud speaker in the store in ONLY spanish. No english translation. So if anyone hears that I died in some horrific store fire and no one knows why I was still in there, it's because I went to look for curtain hooks at Sears and didn't understand the frantic Spanish announcement to immediatly leave the store.

I like that costume idea a lot Anna :-) I'm going to be a mobster, a male mobster (mostly in an effort to wear as many clothes as possible thus breaking the stereotype that woman just use halloween as an excuse to wear as little of an amount of clothes as possible and have it be less skanky then it normally would be. Small amounts of clothes + October = Cold. I don't like cold.)

Oh and to add a peeve (and as a benefit get the comment number up)-my biggest pet peeve currently is people you work with who use terms of endearment instead of your name. I have been called "doll baby," "baby," "sweetie" and "honey" among a slew of other things (mostly from woman I work with, men try to stay away from that for those pesky sexual harrassment reasons ;-) ) Two things: 1) We have security badges with our last names clearly shown at all times. If you don't know my name use the last one. 2) I know I look young, trust me. But even though I may look like I'm 16, I am clearly not because I work here. This point does not need to be punctuated by calling me the same things you probably call your kids.

My god is that really a Truth ad? I hate those people, their ads are always retarded attempts at scare tactics. Quite frankly, if I really wanted to smoke, an ad featuring a middle aged unhealthy "superhero" who sucks because he smokes really isn't going to deter me. I think someone should pull their funding- it's not like well have any federal programs for the youngsters when they are of retirement age- all of the US money would have gone to stop the bird flu/Iraq/whatever demented other thing George W comes up with during his remaining 3 years to spend billions on. I say-let them all start smoking, die before age 60 and then we don't have to worry about Medicare and Social Security for them. Just kidding ;-)

I rebel against back and forth email convos by simply not replying to them in the first place. I tend to respond to email via other mediums hours later, but yet I read all of them. That probably makes me rude ;-)
Your stats are more interesting then mine which just show 98% from the US and 2% from Canada.

I can't believe that Fairfax wouldn't be smooch worthy. I mean GMU is in Fairfax, there's a bunch of college girls for those who are looking to smooch ;-) Generally boys like college girls... or so I've heard.

Sometimes I wonder if Brian really lives in a cave unless we drag him out :-) Not knowing Ring of Fire? Travesty! :-P
#34) Tuesday, January 10, 2006
Wow a totally uninteresting to me blog entry ;-) I do like the headline reading vengeful mouse sets house ablaze though. Although it is in actuality a disturbing story- but the headline rocks.
#35) Wednesday, January 18, 2006
I went to the Alexandria City Schools summer day camp as well. Fun times. I especially loved when wed go to the icky pool down by Mount Vernon, and I'm still traumatized by the sandwiches they used to serve us. Summer Day Camp singlehandedly made me hate mayo.
Also if your friends are good friends they won't let you sit inside with snow bunnies. They would make you at least TRY skiing before you dismiss it. Honestly it is not as cold as one may think, and I hate being cold.
#36) Monday, January 23, 2006
I second Brian's question to you Anna. He and I have already started arguing on who gets to babysit for you first. ;-)
#37) Tuesday, January 31, 2006
House has been preempted anyway due to silly American Idol auditions. They do not need 2 hours worth of those. Sigh.
#39) Friday, February 03, 2006
I personally think you should go. You never know- it could be fun, and what else are you going to do some random Friday or Saturday night in July?
#40) Wednesday, February 08, 2006
Didnt you know that the cardinal rule to college is if you do sleep through someones class you NEVER ever admit to it? Even if you are caught half falling off your chair with drool down your face- you say you must have had a seizure or something. It's a delicate balance that the professors appreciate; they know you were sleeping, you know you were sleeping but you are never supposed to admit it. That said- he didn't want to come to your recital? Shocking.
#41) Wednesday, February 08, 2006
You would be annoyed by my cats, they have jingly tags. Name tags and rabies tags that rattle together. I like the sound of jingly tags, it warns me when I'm about to be pounced on.
#43) Thursday, February 09, 2006
I have no idea what Infocom games are. Does that mean I am not a dork at all? My memory of invisible ink are those word seek games/keep little kids busy books that my mom used to get for me anytime we took a trip.
#44) Friday, February 10, 2006
I think spending the weekend studying is good. That way I don't feel so alone in my pre-test insanity. ;-)
#45) Friday, February 10, 2006
Go to blogger.com. They make it incredibly easy with templates and nice user friendly layouts and everything- even I could do it ;-)
#52) Thursday, March 02, 2006
I would say that if Walk the Line wins one for acting it will be Reese in the actress category. Heath has best actor all wrapped up. Also, Brokeback Mountain is 95% a definite for winning Best Picture.
#54) Thursday, March 02, 2006
Ugh I hope not :-) I thought Good Night, and Good Luck was horribly boring and dragged on forever. Granted maybe that's just because I'm uncultured/uneducated or something.
#55) Monday, March 06, 2006
I think the only reason it won was because there were only 3 nominees and none of the songs were all that great. That's what the Three 6 Mafia should have thanked. "Here's to a year of movies without memorable songs."
#56) Monday, March 06, 2006
Supposedly Jack is hitting it up with Scarlet Johanssen (sp?). Keira hooked it up with Jake Gylenhaal according to the after party rumors hitting the circuits this morning.
#57) Friday, March 10, 2006
When I worked for Habitat for Humanity in the summers during high school- I named my hammer Thor. I always thought that was an awesome name.
#58) Monday, March 13, 2006
I enjoy two things about this post: 1) that you only mention poker when you finish in the top 2. All other weeks there have been no mention of poker at all. 2) that I subconsciously placed my hand in the perfect position to completely cover my face from the angle you took the picture. The only thing you are able to get a glimpse of is how incredibly ghostly pale I am. OBX can't come soon enough.
#60) Tuesday, March 21, 2006
I enjoyed that last part because it's so true. The ring IS what us girls care most about ;-) Congrats Kathy and Chris!
#61) Thursday, March 23, 2006
I love the WB- what can I say? *shrug* I agree with the statement that car insurance is a huge ripoff. I think that every year you do not have an accident you should see a significant decrease in rates- the key word being "significant." Also, what I find amusing is that you pay all this money in case something happens but then if it does many people don't even report it to their car insurance companies because their rates will immediately go up (like when I clipped a pole at a gas station *cough*), they just pay it out of pocket. How does that work? Where is the money you've already paid going if not directly into your eventual repairs? It also does not help if you, like I do, have a car loan on your car because then they require you to have more insurance than would ever possibly be neccessary (especially since I drive a Ford). I find myself wishing that someone would steal my car because not only will my entire car loan be taken care of but it is so well insured that I would actually MAKE money. Crazy.

I've heard that McLean has a hot nanny network which is even better because then you can find a large quantity of hot women under 30 AND the kids aren't actually theirs. I know about this because awhile ago I worked with a man who liked to oogle them, and by oogle I mean attempt to have adulterous affairs with all of them.
#65) Thursday, April 13, 2006
12 pictures on the 12th of the month sounds like fun. Maybe I'll try it next month although since it's a Friday and a workday my day will be about as thrilling as yours... just starting about 2.5 hours later.
#66) Monday, April 17, 2006
I have taught you well- only using the picture of the back of my head :-) Best birthday present ever!
#68) Monday, May 08, 2006
Professional Basketball: you live in DC so you should root for the Wizards. That's a no brainer. :-) The Wizards rock! (here's hoping they find a defense before next season though...)
#69) Tuesday, May 09, 2006
I have so many memories of sleeping on the Math Emporium floor, using my backpack as an uncomfortable pillow. Thanks for reminding me :-)
#70) Friday, May 12, 2006
Remind me to no longer read your website while eating my breakfast- the picture of the cockroach nearly made me puke.

My job SUPPOSEDLY has flex time. However, I have found that in my division if I utilize the flex time I am not taken as seriously and thought of as a slacker.
#72) Monday, May 15, 2006
Also, from what I have noticed mothers that chose to use flex time to manage their family/work lives end up being punished for it in some way that probably could never be proven. They end up with less promotions and lower pay, and if you are a single parent especially that does NOT help you in the long run. They should release a study showing that.
#73) Monday, May 15, 2006
I am the first one to complain about the people over-using their flex time especially when it ends up slamming me with work because I don't have a family. My point was just that I don't think companies should get spotlighted or credit for having supposedly "family friendly" policies when the policies fall apart when it comes to things such as promotions and raises for those who do use their flex-time options responsibly.
#74) Wednesday, May 17, 2006
The good thing about 7th heaven is that is was so mockable. The "actors" (besides the parents) were so bad it was like you could literally see them reading off of cue cards. CW has now said that they may actually end up renewing 7th heaven.
#75) Monday, May 22, 2006
Out of every blog I've read with this survey on it, not ONE person answered that question with a straight answer. I find that funny :-)
#76) Tuesday, May 23, 2006
What's the worst that can happen? Three words: 1) Applesauce 2) Antibiotics 3) Painkillers
#77) Thursday, May 25, 2006
You know- I had completely forgotten about that until you mentioned it (the van trip back to play in the concert that is).
#78) Friday, June 09, 2006
I have to say that doing Chad's 12 for 12 thing was the only reason that I contemplated keeping my blog going. But then I decided that one post a month does not make good reading ;-)
#79) Wednesday, June 14, 2006
Same thing for me. My most commonly forgotten one's when I actually think about what I'm doing are putting on deodorant and brushing my teeth. That's why I carry both in my bag to work ;-) you know, just in case.
#80) Wednesday, June 28, 2006
I'm still alive and kicking. Just busy at work, so less time for blog reading/commenting :-)
#81) Friday, August 25, 2006
I have no doubt that DVDs are solely responsible for the boom in both production and viewing of serial dramas. I mean before DVD sets go so popular there weren't many of them aside from Dallas and 90210/Melrose Place. As I'm typing this I realize that in actuality I may be very wrong and just have a warped perception since I grew up with 4 channels.
#82) Monday, October 30, 2006
Wait until mid-January, then ask the question of "who wants to live in a desert year round anyway?" and I bet 90% of Northern Virginia, with their frostbitten ears would raise their hand. Me included.
#83) Monday, November 20, 2006
I've already played the Wii, because I'm cool like that. It was the sports package that comes free with it. It's fun, easy (for complete hand-eye coordination failures like me), and actually rather tiring. Just wanted to share. I will also share that I think spending $1000+ on a game console (via ebay) is completely retarded.
#84) Thursday, January 11, 2007
You do realize that Dreamgirls was a musical made to film- right? ;-) That's why there were so many songs.
#85) Wednesday, March 14, 2007
Yeah, I can say that for the first time in a Name that Tune I could not even identify one song the first listen through. Not even one. I don't even have an inkling about any of them.
#86) Wednesday, March 14, 2007
I think the problem isn't just having the bass lines of songs but by just recreating them instead of seperating out the bass you got rid of anything that could possibly help us. Not that I would have any idea how one could seperate out the bass...
#87) Wednesday, March 21, 2007
Wow it's really sad that I listened to both the B52s and Aerosmith's Pink feeling like they were in there and STILL couldn't pick up the basslines. That shows how bad my ear is.
#88) Wednesday, April 25, 2007
Indoor track is what gave me tendonitis in my ankle. It's such a wonderful sport, really. I only joined it because: 1) my mother had banned me completely from seeing my boyfriend at the time so we both joined to get around her rule 2) to keep in shape for crew, much like you :-P
#89) Wednesday, August 27, 2008
A) I sorry mommy, please don't beat me.
B) Shhh! If you let me kill the little one, we'll all have our own rooms again.
Because why not make Family Circus violent?
#90) Thursday, August 28, 2008
Clearly you haven't eaten the portobello mushroom ravioli at the Olive Garden. Everything else on the menu is complete crap, but that dish? So ridiculously yummy that I have to fight the urge to lick my plate clean every single time.
#93) Friday, January 09, 2009
Finalizing the wedding date- they claim that everything past that point is the fun stuff :-) Here's hoping.
We finalized ours right before Christmas which keeps us right on track of being like a month ahead of you on everything ;-)
#94) Wednesday, February 04, 2009
Melanie is one of my bridesmaids :-)
Oh, and Boris was my sort of boyfriend in 9th grade. He never took off his walkman then either.
#95) Thursday, March 26, 2009
In regards to #10- on the crazy/scary boards, aka the knot there actually is someone doing that. In lieu of a honeymoon they are doing a friends and family cruise and anyone invited the wedding is invited to go with them.

Re: kitchen curtains
We had the exact same problem, and we looked everywhere. I ended up just buying material and at some point am going to sew them myself.
#100) Friday, February 04, 2011
Just restarted this week here: kimsramblings.wordpress.com
Bonus: the baby actually gives me more to talk about. :-P

The question is- the old version or the new version of Battlestar Gallatica? Or is this all encompassing?
#102) Monday, November 21, 2011
Hey now, the McGriddle was absolutely delicious when I was pregnant. I ate them all the time.
(They have now gone back to looking disgusting though)
#103) Tuesday, May 07, 2013
I still read via google reader. I am denial about it being dead. No blog nor twitter fees. I only use twitter to follow and laugh at stupid celebrities who take themselves too seriously.
#104) Monday, July 15, 2013
Down in southern St Mary's county? Yep, all on meth. Read the police blotter sometime ;-) its hilarious.
We can always spot them in .5 seconds when they come up slightly north to go fishing here.
