Fast Skater Continued

I had a hard time posting the vid from Fast Skater. Every time I tried to add words, I lost the vid. In the process I accidentally published the vid, received a comment from Misty, then lost it.
All I wanted to say is that while we were skating T kept saying to me "I am a really fast skater Mama!". Apparently he was oblivious to all the skaters zooming by us on all sides. Except of course the other kid at the end of the vid.

Do I Look Familiar? Pt.5 & Contest

After doing more searching on my own for my biological family, I made the decision to hire a private investigations agency to search for me. They won't charge until they find my bio mother or her next living relative. I sent out my info and they emailed me on Thursday that they received it, and they were going to start searching "immediately".

This leads me to my contest. Take a good look at these photos of me I from my past...

The Real Me

Plaid Skort

Braces and Farrah Fawcett Do

Favorite Waist

Khaki Skort, Bad Bangs

After you are done looking, it's time to play GUESS MY NATIONALITY!

In case you can't tell from the pictures, I am 5'1 and 3/4'' short with brown eyes and medium brown hair. My hair is naturally curly.

The winner will receive this beautiful scrapbook kit which includes over 850 pieces and the scrapbook filled with pictures of me! Just kiddin. It's brand new, never been opened. For those of you who don't scrapbook, I am including an assortment of Vermont treats such as Pure Vermont Maple Syrup and candy and other surprises! Feel free to re-gift, I'll never know.

So go ahead and guess. Although, I am probably a combination of nationalities, please guess only one per person. I'll go by the one that I am most of. If more than one person is correct than I will put all the winners in a hat and my kids will pick out one winner.

Lastly, if the Agency is not able to find my bio family by March 31st, I will just pick a winner randomly. I'll put a reminder to enter this contest in each post until that date. Have fun!

Single, Married & Divorced

Back in December my BBFF(blogger best friend forever) had a contest to find the ugliest Xmas sweater. I was the lucky winner!
This great T was my prize. It's the last of it's kind, from Suzy's standup group Single, Married & Divorced. Since I have been all three, it's totally me...

So I jumped for joy!!!

Yes, that's me. The "normal" pics the Hus took came out horrible. I still have 25 pounds to lose, so don't look too close. Also, it took all my energy for that one jump, as I am still sick with a cold.
I am planning on giving back some love in a upcoming contest here. Details will be in my next post.

I am sick with a nasty cold this week. I've also been working too many days in a row. Those are my excuses for not posting this week. I miss you all, but for now I am off to bed to sleep until noon again. Then I must return to work for an extra shift, UGH! Starting tomorrow I'll be off for 5 days in a row. I'll try not to sleep them away. I hope you all are feeling fine.

Infatuation 2

A long long time ago I wrote a post entitled Infatuation. In it I wrote about my love for David Soul when he played Hutch in Starsky and Hutch. Laugh if you will.

Why are we attracted to certain people? Sometimes the answer is easy. They're HOT! However this can be subjective at times. For example there might be one or two women or men in the world who don't find George Clooney attractive. Heh Heh.

I'm not sure why I liked David Soul; Everyone else liked Paul Michael Glazier.

I've dated a lot of men and there have been many reasons to why I was attracted to one or another. Sometimes, like with Hus, I initially thought he was HOT and he is. But what kept me interested was his personality.

This leads me to my infatuation 2 post. Why do I like Mark Wahlberg? Hmmm? I do find him aesthetically pleasing to the eye, but there has to be more. Is it the badboy, rapper, convicted of attempted murder, urinating in public thing? Could it be that he reminds me of all the Irish cuties (even though he is just part Irish) I dated when I lived in Massachusetts? Perhaps.

Maybe because I liked this song...

It certainly wasn't because he was in this movie. He was the only thing I liked about the movie and only because his hair was sooo ridiculous.
(I Heart Huckabees)

Maybe because, psychotic-ness aside, I really liked him in this movie...


And what's not to like about this.....

I wrote this post in part because I recently watched the movie The Happening which starred Mark Wahlberg. Unfortunately it was one of the worst movies EVER! I had to force myself to finish watching it. I had to remind myself why I liked Marky Mark in the first place. Now I remember.
Who are you infatuated with?

What Did You Do This Superbowl Sunday?

Did you watch the Superbowl? Were you at a Superbowl party eating chicken wings and getting shitfaced? We had a small feast here thanks to Hus. He made homemade hot wings, pizza bread and salad. I drank wine, but just a little.
Hus and the kids watched the game and I watched the commercials. Yes, I am that person who only watches the commercials during the Superbowl. I just am unable to watch sports. I try and I try but when I watch sports on TV, my mind just shuts down and I start daydreaming. When I snap out of it, I have no idea what happened in the game. This time I just surfed the web and looked up to he TV only during the commercials.
I wasn't too impressed this year. My favorite commercial which was played during the pre-game show yesterday, is this Sprint-Nextel commercial. It's been on the air for a few weeks now, but it's still my favorite.

This vid is of my all time favorite Superbowl commercial. It cracks me up.

Do you have a favorite commercial or special thing you do during the Superbowl?
