I already have my costume (not all of it totally but a good portion of it is completed) but there is something about this photo that cracks me up and wish I was going as a French burglar for Halloween. Maybe it's my desire to carry around a baguette-it's a weapon and a snack.
And I am glad I don't have a dog, because the poor little buddy would look like this.
I first saw this t-shirt worn by Anthony Bourdain on the episode where he visits Cleveland (only to eat at Skyline chili..OF ALL THINGS. That's not even Cleveland, that's a different, crappy, Ohio city.) I guess it the phrase, "You've got to be tough" was popular in the 70's. Contrary to popular belief, I don't remember much of the 70's in Cleveland. My first Cleveland memory takes place inside Municipal Stadium in the early 80's...my family had season tickets in the Dawg Pound, the original non-watered down, no PSL's, no messing around Dawg Pound. In other words, the perfect place to take a 4 year old.
I am thankful this week is almost over. It's been a pretty trying week and I wish this was my bedroom. The fact that it's small is not a concern. Between the brick walls, the plush rug, the night stand that would be perfect in my actual bedroom, I am not sure I would ever want to leave it.
I like this set of cars, except I would need more of the "I am right. You are wrong cards." Actually it's more likely that I would need just a whole box of the "I am in a bad mood and taking it out on you" cards.
I tried these boots on again this past weekend. I was able to get them off without causing bruising, unlike last time. Can I get a girdle (or some sort of "shapewear" since that's what girdles are now called) for my calves?
With the temperature outside getting colder, the temperature inside my house is getting colder too. I try to turn on the heat as late as possible-it's still not on, I am trying to hold out until November. I keep my house COLD! Penguins could be comfortable in the temp I keep my house. (If you want to come over, don't forget your gloves and a heavy sweater) The hardwood floors don't help the warmth. Maybe it's time I broke down and got a rug for the bedroom. Or maybe just thicker socks.
Yesterday morning I was up early to head in to the Valley to cheer on some friends that were running in the Towpath races (2 in the half marathon and 1 in the 10k). It was my kind of fall morning. After the races we headed to Hudson for brunch at Vue with bottomless mimosas for $10...PERFECT! And as if we hadn't consumed enough at brunch (both food wise and mimosa wise), there was the stop at Main Street Cupcakes. The french toast cupcake is amazing.
And there is a rumor that they might be opening a shop in Rocky River...
For the past few years, I have been sporting a pumpkin orange winter jacket. I decided I was over it for this winter and it's a little too big (not a bad thing at all-so not complaining). I have been on the hunt for a while now and actually I decided on this coat. And it was less than $100 but doesn't look like it was.
Now I have a couple of tattoos that people wonder about but this is a whole new level. And I like Twilight but WOW! This takes Twilight love to a whole new level. I thought I was weird for already having New Moon tickets for the day after it opens.
Thank you to all my sick co-workers who couldn't keep their germs to themselves. I want to give special thanks to the woman behind me who insisted on coming in to work at her sickest and coughing her way down the aisles. The makers of Zicam, Alka Seltzer Plus Cold, Halls and orange juice thank you too.
As a result, I am spending my weekend with these people:
