You Are Corona

You don't drink for the love of beer. You drink to get drunk.
You prefer a very light, very smooth beer. A beer that's hardly a beer at all.
And while you make not like the taste of beer, you like the feeling of being drunk.
You drink early and often. Sometimes with friends. Sometimes alone. All the party needs is you!

The sea gulls in Florida were BRUTAL...this particular little critter was especially feisty. He circled our blanket and literally attaked or chased away any other birds that tried to come near!

*SIGH*

I absolutely positively hate wakes and funerals...they are so emotionally draining. My friend Sandy's 18 year old son, Joey, was killed in a car accident last Wednesday night. Today was the funeral and last night was the wake. But between last Thursday when I found out and today, I feel like I've been crying nonstop.

Poor Sandy. How do you go on after losing your child? I can't imagine how it must feel, like your insides being torn out, to lose the child you gave birth to. I've been so upset for her and so upset for Joey whose life was cut too short.

Sandy has a list that Joey wrote...12 things he is grateful for. The number one item on his list??

LIFE.





*SIGH*

In about twelve hours, I'll be on a plane headed to Florida...my LONG-AWAITED vacation is finally here! I need a break from a lot of stress I've been dealing w/lately and I know this is JUST the "medicine" I need. :-) I also can't wait to wear shorts and a bathing suit...and no damn winter coat!!!

Your Stripper Song Is

Super Freak by Rick James

"That girl is pretty wild now
The girl's a super freak
The kind of girl you read about
In new-wave magazine"

Freaky? Yes. But you're also pretty darn funny.


Oh my GOD this is so me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL
Your Love Life Secrets Are

Looking back on your life, you will have a few true loves.

You're a little scarred from your past relationships, but who isn't?

You expect a lot from your lover - you want the full package. You tend to be very picky.

In fights, you love to debate and defend yourself. You logic prevails - or at least you'd like to think so.

Break-ups can be painful for you, but you never show it. You hold your head high.
Aaaahhhhh...soon enough, April, soon enough....

(And is this not the funniest turtle ever? LOL)
Oh my GOD, can today go any SLOWER???

Two (and less than a half) more work days left until...FLORIDA!!! I'm so impatient I can't stand it. I've been so on edge lately and I really, truely need a break. I think I'm most looking forward to endless hours of vegging on the sandy and warm Florida beaches. I know Stacey is just as anxious as I am.

This vacation will be good for us. After a crazy stressful and emotional year, we deserve to have a break! I think tonight I'm going to give myself a pedicure, paint my toes a nice tropical coral-y color, and maybe start putting together the clothes I'm going to bring. Yesssssss....that's my plan, Stan.

Boredom at work SUCKS. One of the admissions reps just buzzed my desk and jokingly told me I should answer the phone in different accents each time...so I practiced a couple on her. It's safe to say I can do a Scottish rendition of it, or a Middle Eastern accent. Damn, I need more accents.

Is it 3:30pm yet? That's when I'm getting my massage! WOO HOO!!!
Busy weekend ahead! Going out tonight to celebrate Daryl's big 3-0th birthday (which is actually on Monday). This means I'll be meeting the MAJORITY of his friends. A little nervous about that. Meeting new people is always a little nerve-wracking! Thankfully, Stacey is coming out too so there will be SOMEONE I already know. :-)

And then TOMORROW, Daryl and I are going to head out to upper state NY to spend the night over his mom's. This is my first time meeting HER. I'm SUPER nervous about that! She used to be a cop so I hope she's not scary! LOL Besides that, meeting any parents of your new beau can be scary!!!!!

Sunday we'll come home and I hope to just relax in the evening, curl up on the couch under my afghan with the pooches, and watch a good movie with D. Ahhhhhh.....
