put some damned clothes on!

this is an old post, but still worthy of mentioning today

I do NOT understand what compels people to go out and conduct their lives while still wearing PAJAMAS!!!! I see girls all the time wearing some tee shirt and a pair of pajama pants.  Yes, so what, they are cute pajama pants, BUT THEY ARE STILL FUCKING PAJAMA PANTS!!!  I was at Moe’s, and there was this woman who had to be in her late 40s.  She was wearing a tee shirt, pajama pants and slippers!!!  HELLO???  People, I know they are comfy.  I wear them every night.  In my house.  To sleep in.  Now, I will admit that I will wear pj pants to the bojangles if I am hung over and NEED a butter biscuit or two.  BUT I NEVER LEAVE MY VEHICLE.  Today some sorority chick was wearing her polka dotted pj pants at Chick Fil A.  I know these are pj pants these women are wearing because I have SEEN them in the PAJAMA departments!!!  I don’t always go out in full make up and a dress, but I ALWAYS dress before I leave the damned house.  It’s NOT cute so STOP it.

Lately, I have made some new discoveries and re-discoveries.  These are some of my new addictions:

–peanut butter chocolate chip chewy granola bars.  i used to hate granola, but these are really good.  i eat them for a snack at school.

–blue diamond wasabi soy almonds. YUM!!  a nice source of fiber with a kick!

–U2’s new cd. I know it’s just a compilation of old songs, but they’re all my faves.  plus proceeds from the cd go to help musicians affected by katrina.

–skirts.  i haven’t been wearing many skirts because i have been relegated to sneakers since i have the gimpy hoof.  but the hoof always hurts regardless of what shoes i wear, so i might as well skirts and cute shoes.

–koolaid.  i am hypoglycemic, so we always had a jug of koolaid in the fridge for me to drink. it was cheaper than juice.  i drank koolaid all the time in college.  rockadile red was my favorite, then they discontinued it.  i also like grape.  we made some this summer for the girls, and i drank some.  it’s still good!

–SmartBoard.  If you don’t know what this is, it’s basically an giantgantic (chalkboard sized) interactive computer monitor. i have one in my classroom and it is AWESOME!  there are lots of features and the kids love it.

–teen lit.  i have had a year away from the teen lit scene.  i always read these books so i can suggest them to students, but there are some really great novels for teens. way better than i had.

–meerkat manor.  it’s back!  a new season of meerkitty drama!  love it.

–MSNBC.  there are a lot of prison and crime documentaries on there! you know i love that.

–Qdoba.  it’s kinda like Moe’s, a little different.  moes is still my fave.

–Hardee’s Patty Melt.  it is my new hang over food. i certainly won’t eat them often, but it was good today for my sad little hungover ass.

–James Clavell’s Asian Series. I got hooked on Shogun.  I am buying Taipan this weekend.

–dark green eyeliner.  it brings out the green in my hazel eyes

–febreeze plug ins.  these are awesome.  they last forever. there are two scents and they release the differing scents alternatingly at different times.

–vitamin water power C flavor.  i love this stuff.

–goat cheese. which i already love, but jill had some the other night and now i crave it daily.

–pimento cheese from earth fare.  i like to eat it with the blue sesame corn chips they have.

–herbal essence shampoos and conditioners.  i like the one for dry hair.  the dandruff one is good too.  i have a really itchy scalp and a bad habit of digging at my head until it bleeds.  this stuff is good. i never scratch my noggin!

–kittens.  not that i haven’t always love them, but these five (down to three now in November) i have crack me.  they keep me entertained.  they are so little, but run around all “bowed up” so they can fight each other. they are ferocious.

–snail mail.  i have some cute cards and i have started sending them out to people.  it is nice to get mail from people.  cards and such.  my godmother nikki and jill are both really good at sending cards.  i always buy them and then forget to send them.

–60s fabric prints. i love the ones with mushrooms or owls or snails.  they are cute. i just ordered a totebag that has turquois and green mushrooms on it.

–jeopardy.  i go through jeopardy phases.  sometimes i watch it religiously, other times, i am just not interested because i have too much other crap to do.

–garage sales.  THE HOBB and i used to go to garage sales every saturday morning, hungover, tired, whatever. we had those babies mapped out.  then as gramma’s health has declined, i have quit going.  jill and i went to a couple this summer, but i was too broke, so now i am going to start back up.  today i was too hungover.  pitiful.


–fish tacos at casa linda. this is ashley’s fault!  she told me how good they were, so i tried them. she was right! damnit.

–blockbuster online.  i was at netflix. i like blockbuster just as well.  i am forgetful about inconsequential things like returning movies on time and going to the bank.  having the movies come straight to me is good. i will search that site forever picking movies.

–america’s next top model.  i don’t know why i got sucked into this crap. i know it’s not good, but it’s hilarious. the drama between the girls is great.  plus i do like seeing what the make up and hair people do.  that transformation is pretty cool.

–sage and citrus candles from yankee candle


–cranberry mandarin candles from, of all places, wal-mart

–rosemary and olive oil triscuits with cheese

–amy jo’s taco soup

–fires in the fire place
