What it all means

So, the amazing dooce asks the question if women who get all this eddy-cation are wasting their time if all they are going to end up with is being a mother.

Some crazy woman is shaming women for not pursuing a career after all that aforementioned eddy-cation and becoming mothers.

This leads me to a few theories:
1) This crazy woman had a shitty mom
2) This crazy woman was a shitty mom
3) No one would fuck this crazy womanto give her the opportunity to be a shitty mom.
4) This crazy woman was passed over for many many promotions in her life and blamed it on other women, when she should have really looked deep into the cavern that is her soul.
5) This crazy woman is an asshole.

It frustrates me to no end, the whole militant point of view that what is good for one person is good for another. That limited thinking is what religious fanatics think.

No one has any opinion that should matter but your own.

And besides, opinions are like assholes: every one has one. And they don't think theirs stink.

Superstition and Science

My parents are an unusual lot.

My father is an electrical engineer and regularly quizzes my husband on the square root of three. He also rants about the three singe digit combintations that add up to twenty. In addition, I will always remember what 2 to the 10th power is. He is not good at expressing his emotions and is pretty grumpy.

My mother is the kind of woman who can read a person's happiness from their posture. She knows when I have had a bad day and WILL JUST FUCKING CALL! She also knows about the ins and outs of people to the point that when she says something crazy like "beware of this person, he is the devil", that even though I know this is not accurate, a little seed is planted in the fertile imagination of my brain that perhaps this person is SATAN!

I am a weird amalgam of both people. I have an engineering degree and I read horoscopes. I love a process and feel best in one. HOWEVER: I own not one but two magic eight balls:



Some people think it's hoarding. I call it hedging your bet.

Observation

I have been watch BBC America and I have to say that the Great Britain I am watching is MUCH sunnier then I recall England being.

Perhaps too much of the influence of Sunny LA?

By the way, LA is really that fucking nice.

How I deal with a house at 55 degrees

I know that it seems extreme to keep at house that cold, but I HALVED THE GAS BILL THIS MONTH!

I keep six blankets on my side of the bed. When it is really cold, I have been known to put four more blankets on the bed.

In addition, I will put on two shirts, two pairs of socks, and sweatpants in order to sleep.

If you notice the other side, that is where yohboh sleeps with two blankets wearing boxers. Fucking hot sleeper!

This is one of the two heaters that are kept in the back bedroom, also known as the master bedroom (this "master bedroom" has always sounded colonial to me). This little guy is from Target and is for the master bath.

I am terrified of leaving this one since our house's wiring is a bit strange and I have left this on and blow dried my hair and my blow drier fizzled in MY HAND. I thought I was going to be found dead with a head of wet hair.




I confessed to my parents where we keep the thermostat at and the provided us another heater. When my parents are generous, there is always a science or math questions. My father asked me what are the three methods of heat transfer and were provided this:This is a radiation heater

This heater only works when it is shined on you. I moon it every night to get my tushie nice and warm before going to bed.

Chips

Whenever I get lunch, I normally get a sandwich and being the cheapo that I am, I get a combo meal and it comes with chips. I normally eat the sandwich and take the chips home for yohboh to eat.

I had this realization when we have children that I would give the chips to them.

And that just amused me.

I do not like the following

1) Led Zepplin
2) Cream
3) Pink Floyd
4) Poker
5) Bowling
6) Football

Why do I not like these? Because they are better WHEN YOU ARE DRUNK.

Since I do not get drunk, these things SUCK to me.

I question the quality of fun things are when you are drunk that SUCK when you are sober.

Grocery Store Find

Yohboh made a chocolate cake last week.
It is still delicious but a bit dry so I went to the grocery store to get milk and was SEDUCED by these:
Blood Oranges. So Pretty. So eaten.

YUM

Pinch

This is a bottle of PINCH blended whisky. I got this on Friday for Yohboh.

This is how much is left after Saturday.

Somebody likes his pinch.

Only Happy when it Rains

I think I am fucking up.

And I am more comfortable when that happens. Well relieved.

Why am I the one who is relieved when the shoe drops? The shoe always drops.

Choosy Beggars

I had a BLT that I had gotten but was not going to eat (long story about women) and there was a homeless woman begging for change so I asked if she would like my uneaten sandwich.

She asked what it was.

I said BLT

She said no, she does not eat pork and repeated her query for change.

Since when did homeless people have the right to express a preference for FREE things?

I just sounded really enlightened, didn't I?

So I did not give her any change.

Valentine's Day Dinner

Yohboh and I made Valentine's Dinner.

The following are pictures with commentary.


This is the veal chop yohboh and I had. Yes, we ate baby cow and it was good.
This is it cooked. See how rare yohboh likes it?



This is yohboh. Is he not the cutest?


This is our dinner. Veal cutlets with beurre blanc sauce with truffle ravioli, roasted brussel sprouts and asparagus.

It was yummy.

TV Shows I want to see

There was a show in the late eighties called Doctor Doctor. It had Matt Frewer in it. Matt Frewer was also known as Max Headroom. I think it was on for a year. I would LOVE to buy the DVDs to it so you folks at CBS get to it! It was on Mondays at 10:30 PM.

Also, there was a show called Class of 96. It starred Doogie Howser's girlfriend and Jason Gedrick. It was on Fox, but I do not know when. Loved that too.

Those are the two tv shows that haunt me.

Alol and my Valentine's Day Cake

The is Alol.

She is a stuffed black dog.

She looks like Lola.

I sleep with this dog because she KEEPS FUCKING STILL!


But Lola is very cute

See:

Can you tell the difference?

I did not think so.


Also, here is a cake that Yohboh made using Emeril's recipe:

The sticker is off olympics

I have been off the sticker for four days now. This is the first time in my life that I am knowingly engaging in unprotected sex. TO MAKE A BABY. I know every single person alive or dead has been born and this process was the beginning but it is nonetheless exciting.

I have been watching the olympics and I question the relevancy of it. It seems like the winter olympics in particular is bullshit. It is these obscure sports (luge and curl?) that Europeans seem to have a monopoly on. When we ( and by we I mean the USA) can go over there and kick there ass in our brash and ignorant and why use diplomacy when we can just shoot shit way?

A sense of accomplishment

I just opened a caffeine free Diet Coke. It fizzled quite rapidly, like someone had shook it. I quickly inserted a straw ( I never drink a soda without a straw) and quickly drank enough soda so that there would be none spilled! I had to drink more than I wanted to and I feel a bit off but overall I am well pleased with myself.

I feel like Alias!

My GOD DAMN biological clock

I want a baby.

I want a baby.

I go into Baby Gap to hold pink mary janes for the little girl I do not have yet.

I WANT A BABY.

Yohboh better get his shit together soon.

If he does not get on the baby bus with me I AM GOING TO RUN HIM OVER WITH IT!

Emotional Satisfaction

In a marraige, you don't expect to feel complete.

You don't expect to feel full of love all the damn time.

But occassionally, I want emotional satisfaction.

Lola and Yohboh

This is Lola and Yohboh acuddlin.

Sometimes I think I should be jealous.
