cockroach in the apartment


Morrissey was hunting something while i fed Ace a bottle.... I thought I saw a large almond like shadow making it's decent from my fridge/freezer to the floor. When he pounced I knew it was not a mirage. Morrissey caught the cockroach and took it downstairs... for what reason I do not know, but when you catch something, you always have to take it else where. So he took it down stairs with Pee Pants trailing him full of curiosity. He laid it onto the black rug for investigation and I'm only assuming consumption or attempt of. (Morrissey has failed in attempt of consumption many times in the last few days. He attempted to attack kill and eat 2 of my seeweed tamarind brown rice cakes resulting in one heck of a mess. He attempted to eat Joe's sausage egg and cheese on a roll this morning but only got the bun off and didn't even get a chomp out of the sausage- he's not good at figuring out what part of the sandwich he wants. He pretty much mangled my 1 left over bite of burger but didn't eat anything out of it. So it is needless to say... the cockroach was still alive- OF COURSE. So it takes off and I yell out quit loudly "Holy Shit!" scare Ace, and I absolutely do not faze the cats both of them are going hog wild with their new toy. So the damn thing scurries in a circle toward the baby stuff and i'm going oh shit oh shit oh shit and running upstairs with the baby and putting my motorcycle boots on pronto. That's my reaction! Better go put my boots on....!?!?!?!???? Well I knew I'd stomp that lil' fucker if he came near me so I guess it is kind of a good thing.

So judging by the way the cats are stalking and investigating the giant pile of laundry under the stairs... He (IT) is in there somewhere. Wish it was still upstairs that way there is no threat that the cockroach will be snuggling with me in bed or even worse with the baby. I feel as if it's on my shoulder and behind my ear all of a sudden. EEby jeebies are here to stay.

Alright this squirm worm baby has had enough of the blogging!

Reporting cockroaches in the building.

This is my first New York Cockroach by the way.

this is a ranting shitty and negative blog about my day so far... it has sucked... royally!

drove joe to work. cut self on stroller. child took huge dump in car. changed diaper in bathroom at starbucks. joe forgot his lunch in stroller. went to his work in skin tight spandex running pants. wasn't easy. went for a run. then power walked. then sprinted. finished sprint at where car should've been. walked to brooklyn navy yard. waited 3.5 hours. had to get joe to come since the car isn't in my name. wouldn't let me get the bottle out of the car to feed my child. hung out in spandex. 2:00pm ate first meal of the day when i finally got home. baby had full meal. 4:00 baby to first real nap of the day. I hate nyc. I hate nyc's cops. I hate nyc's system. I hate never being able to be fully clean....ever.

melt down happened during bottle feeding. Luckily I contained myself enough to feed baby and get him to sleep.

washer and dryer are to be installed tomorrow. at what time i don't know because they called joe instead of me to confirm installation/delivery. there is a mountain of laundry. i still have to go to the laundromat today because joe needs clean clothes for client meetings tomorrow. i am making a security deposit on my wedding location today at 5 pm. when am i supposed to do anything else? i have no clean clothes that fit me.

this is a really lame blog and it is the only way i could get it out without..... shaving my head. I learned not to do that anymore.


i am not going to do any favors for at least 24 hours so don't ask.

Flor Tiles


No I did not mis-spell. Flor tiles are awesome. They are also the fix to the frozen toe syndrome I currently suffer from in my new apartment. Concrete + tile + basement=BRRR!

This is the color I would like. This particular carpet tile is called Fedora I would like it in above color (chartreuse) & it is made from recycled materials.

Happy Earth Day.

T Minus 7


7 days to washer and dryer delivery/installation.

COULD I BE MORE STOKED?

NO.

UG! This lady!



This article is so vomit-OSE!!

http://www.nytimes.com/2009/04/22/opinion/22dowd.html?_r=2&partner=rss&emc=rss&pagewanted=all


It is a given that any article in the "Opinion" category of The New York Times will be opinionated. However, this article is so pathetically rude, bitchy, and catty, it's plane old unworthy of being printed. Just because Twitter is a hot topic of the moment does not mean that any article written about it should be printed for more traffic on YOUR website New York Times (I'm talking to you-do somethin' about it).

The insanely rude attitude given by the writer during her interview must have been unnerving, hence the exit of co-founder half way through. I'd have bigger craps to dunk than to complete that interview. The author Maureen (MAWWWREEEEEEYYEEYEEN) seems honestly horrified by her lack of understanding of the internet and fear of her way of life after newspapers bite the dust. For her I suggest becoming a dishwasher as a back up as her brain is clearly clogged with enough uneaten table scraps to fill up an entire article with this mumbo-jumbo garble. Do I really need to go back to the article and count how many times she took a jab at Biz & Evan about limiting each twitter to 140 characters? Barf lady BARF!!!! I don't normally condone drug use, but you need to take a chill pill and sit on the internet for 24 hours and see what happens after you've read the Real Simple website & scoured Zappos for discount orthopedic sandals. You might just find yourself wanting to open up a facebook account and a twitter account and link the two together because it's kinda neat to do.

The biggest thing that blows me about her poor attitude about twitter & the disgusting manner in which she conducted herself throughout the interview is::::::::

A writer who is interested in continuing to be a writer most likely needs to adapt to the times. Update dude! You can flourish if you choose to utilize the technological tools that will network you, your writing, your life, & the rest of the world. Your audience can be created & grown using the internet as your lil' buddy :) Twitter can definitely help you by allowing you to post all your articles as they are published. The closed mindedness of our author was shown very clearly with her blog loyalties, as if only one forum for writing is allowable, especially since in blogs you're allowed more characters. Poop!

Well I like to write & I am not educated in literature writing or journalism- so I will Twitter my lil' heart out.

Friday Nice Day


It is a lovely day today! I exercised... I made tuna salad (yum!) The weather has jumped past tolerable into delightful territory- I'm flabbergasted! I honestly had to focus on happy thoughts (such a challenge).

Kind of want a head massage?!? Is that weird?

I have worn exercise clothes all day long. This is my strategy for looking good. If I look like I'm working on my weight then it's almost excusable :) Truly I'm a work in progress and have noticed a change in the butt thigh region solely from going up and down the staircase within my apartment. It seems that my phone is always on the opposite level of the apartment that I am on whenever it rings... kinda a good thing :)

Happy Friday to All and to All Happy Friday.

turbo tax disorganization nightmare


Now that I finally have access to a working computer and an internet connection----AND time to sit down by myself and complete my 2008 online income tax return---> I can't seem to find my paperwork. great great great. Moving and making a mental note of where I put certain peices of important paperwork isn't really working out for me at the moment!

ACK! (I do not in anyway condone Cathy like behavior & in fact it makes me a bit nauseated to put this picture up)

New York Same Sex Marriage!!!!


State Legislation.... let's make it happen!!!!!!

Gov. Patterson---- let's do this already!

We'll find out Thursday!

Insane in the Membrane

Insane... got no brain!

OK! So I've been M.I.A. until well, today I suppose.

What's up with me? TONS AND TONS AND TONS!

Visits from family! Moving... hassles... and of course.... the rest of life that continues everyday no matter what.

The baby is fantastic! I love the new apartment, but it requires a ton of time and effort to turn into a home. I'm honestly soooo sick of talking about it, typing about it is just reminding me of how over the top this whole experience has been!!!!

More updates to follow!!!
