Wednesday...ho hum.

Gosh, I feel like it's been forever since I've
gotten my blog on.

I did have a great weekend though.

Saturday after breakfast at Mary + Tito's we watched
a few episodes of John Adams and frickin' loved it! It
was so awesome to see parts of history that we all read
about portrayed on the telly. And Abigail Adams? She
seemed like one smart and supportive lady/wife/mama.
Loved her.

We also watched more of the Wire and I'm
looking forward to more this evening... yay!
I'm hooked. Big time.

The 3 of us went out on Sunday and watched one the
best movies I've seen in a long time, the Dark Knight.
I didn't get up to pee once.... that's how amazing it was.
And the boys aren't bad to look at either. Not bad at all.
Go see it. Now.

OH! We also got to see the trailer for Watchmen
and my sweet lover nearly lost his shit. He can't wait!

Not a lot on Monday... had some cheeseburgers
for dinner. I love cheeseburger night!

Same for Tuesday, it was bleh.

Today I listened and sang along to Elvis Costello while
driving to trabajo. I had a peanut butter sandwich on
wheat and a delicious banana for breakfast. I really feel
like having a mountain of nachos for lunch, but, alas, they
are too messy to eat at my desk. Maybe for dinner if I'm
a good girl?

Now I'm here at work perusing my fave guilty pleasure
sites like this one and laughing my ass off. Check it out.

I'm also getting inspired by How About Orange and a
lot of the cute and crafty items she makes. Super fun!

I really should be working...

Business Time

i know this has been going around lately, but it's really
funny and puts me in a good mood... enjoy!

flight of the conchords

mel... is awesomely creepy!

f-u monday.

i hate feeling as if my voice doesn't count.

my mom is recovering from a major surgery and
i wish i could do more for her than pick up a
fucking prescription. she's trying to be strong,
but i can hear otherwise when i talk with her.

i need to give myself more credit at times...
i am human and i will make mistakes. guaranteed.

I've Searched The World Over...

we're going to see cracker tonight at summerfest .
i saw them in '99 or so in santa fe and it was fun.
a lot of their songs from 'kerosene hat' totally
remind me of high school and this was a favorite
of ours... i remember listening to it while driving
richard, my little '76 toyota corolla. good times.

tuesday rundown

hi there. it's been a week, A WHOLE WEEK, since
my last post. i've been lazy. and busy. and lazy.
that's a pic of me in case you forgot what i look like.

i did, however, have a really great 4th of july weekend
with my favorite guy. i love me some 3-day holiday
weekends...who doesn't? tell me so i can punch you.

on thursday we had a delightful dinner over at the world
famous (ok, south valley famous) monte carlo steakhouse
and it was awesome as always. i love walking into the
dark room with kitchy decor and drunken construction
workers enjoying a cold one at the bar. i also like how
they will stare me up and down like a piece of meat, even
though i'm CLEARLY with a handsome fella. it's okay,
craig doesn't mind... he knows i'm hot stuff.

on friday we had lunch at los cuates (don't even get me
started) and vowed not to go there for another year
or so. aside from their salty chips and sweet salsa,
it's nothing to write home about. since we were near
the sunflower market we stopped in and got some
fixings for a bbq over at our friend steve's place. it
was very mellow but a good time.

on saturday, we finished working on the chicken coop...
we had to add some netting to protect the girls from
predators. and we also added more poultry fencing as
the little brats (isotope and hazel) kept trying to
escape into bombay's yard. not a good idea for them
seeing as how bombs wants them BAD. anyhow, we
finished. thank god. then i was lucky enough to get
a ride with this guy on this:
that evening we watched a favorite around our
place lately, the wire. i love it. so does craig.

on sunday after angus was dropped off, the 3 of
us got in tamales and drove over yonder to the
corrales farmer's market and got 3 more chicks!
they are adorable and unique in their own way.
i will post some pics of them later, but the newest
members of the blanragg familia are (so cute!):

connie jr. the cuckoo maran.

blinky the ameraucana with green feet.

raquel the rhode island red.

very exciting...very!
here's isotope and hazel... they're growing fast!

and here's most of them chillin'...

and in honor of our new girls, i made us a yummy
ass brick chicken for dinner and we had some
greens from the garden with mashers...oh yeah.
craig (and angus too) desire the brick chicken
at least once a week, and although i love me
some crispy skin, it's a pain to make sometimes.
craig, though, is nice enough to cut the backbone
for me, i have issues with gagging if i think about
something too much, ie. raw chicken. he's just
so awesome like that.

last night we watched cloverfield... can you say
in-FUCKING-tense? i wasn't sure i'd like it, but it
was very entertaining and kept us on the edge of our
seats! i'd probably see it again... we'll see.

that's about it as far as my thrilling weekend goes.

what'd you do? was it soooo fun? or just bleh?

"With Their Pets Just Talking Shit..."

you like how i incorporate music of the
day lyrics into the post title? yeah, it
means i got nothing. nothing, i tell you.

it's been hot. and that makes me grumpy.

i've gained like 5 lbs this week due to
eating, sitting, more eating and some
more sitting. i try to ride my awesome
bike as much as possible, but still. i fear
the late night bowls of ice cream and
cereal may have something to do with
it. needless to say, i will be refraining
from said late night snacks. for now.

on a sad note, one of the chicks is no
longer with us. craig and angus found
them wandering in the yard on saturday
morning and lina was no where to be
found. i like to believe she made it to
the south valley to live the wild life in
some trees or something. she was the
leader of the pack, and it seems as though
hazel has taken over that role now. we
still plan on getting a few more chicks,
hopefully soon...

got a little checke from the go'ment, think
i'll buy myself some skirts and tanks and
maybe some new sunglasses. one of my
current pairs (brown mad dogs,yo) has seen
better days. and i think a few new outfits
will inspire me to get out of my current
fashion funk. i'll let you know how that
turns out.

this evening i plan on enjoying the 1st
season of flight of the concords. i've
heard from numerous people how great
it is... looking forward to it. and their
cover and spread on bust a few issues
ago was hilarious. and i totally know
this is so last year, don't really care.

anyhoo, hope you are having a lovely
afternoon. i'm having some cold grapes
and listening to tupac right now. nice.
