Did Santa bring you everything you wanted?

I don't know about you guys but I made out pretty good this year!  I got most everything on my list except oddly I didn't get the 1 thing that I actually needed...everything else I wanted & got about 85% of that.  My top dog gift this year was DJ Hero, The Renegade Edition and my 2nd top dog gift was Wii Fit Plus & I'm loving both of them very much!!  I actually needed a gift card to either Penney's or Sears because I desperately need new boots for work & I didn't get it so it's looking like my broke ass is going to have to spend another winter in leaky boots, oh well!!  There was a video game I wanted that I didn't get & a DVD that I've asked for the last 3 years & am still without & then there was the Stanley mug from "the Office" that I wanted & didn't get so I'll just have to buy the damn thing myself! 

There were 2 things I got that I didn't ask for & I'm super happy with them.  I got...a...Snuggie & a Perfect Brownie pan!!  The pan I wanted but didn't ask for, I thought it was super cool & then there's the Snuggie which I have made fun of from day one & never understood what the point is & even though I still agree that it's pretty stupid I'm loving mine.  I think I'm going to add at least one snap on the back of the neck part because trying to get cozy with that damn thing completely open in the back just doesn't work, I lean forward & it starts to fall off & that's really annoying.  God forbid I try to walk in the damn thing, I have to pick up the bottom of it or I will trip & fall on my face & then the top of it starts to fall off & before I know it I'll be tangled up in leopard print fleece on the floor with a broken limb & that isn't cool.  So, what did you guys get that you wanted or didn't want?

Brittany Murphy dies at 32

At 8:00 am this morning 911 was called from the home of Brittany Murphy's husband Simon Monjack & Brittany was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center where she pronounced dead on arrival.  Brittany suffered cardiac arrest and could not be revived, there is no news as to what caused the cardiac arrest.  The story is still developing but my thoughts are with her family & friends during this awful tragedy, especially this close to the holidays...I feel so bad for everyone in her life.  I know I will miss her amazing acting & singing talents, she was a wonderful entertainer IMHO and so many of her movies are on the list of movies I can watch over & over like 8 Mile, Clueless, and Little Black Book.

Renaissance State Of Mind - Ro Spit

So I caught this on Twitter today when Mlive posted it and since I'm a Jay-Z fan & a Detroit fan I really enjoyed this...it doesn't hurt that freaking Empire State of Mind is one of my current favorite songs on the radio either.  I've never heard of Ro Spit before but obviously he's from the D & he appeared on HOT 102.7 to send this track out to the world!

80's Throw Back!

So today I decided to try out my clothing option for a holiday party I have to attend in a couple weeks & just see if it was cozy, if I was warm enough or too warm, if all the accessories went together like I pictured in my head & if I could make it through 10 hours in it without getting itchy or annoyed.  Well, we are on hour 3 and all is well, I've had a couple compliments on it so far so other people seem to like it which is a good thing but what I noticed just a few minutes ago is that I'm totally 80's right now.  It's not 80's in a bad way, but still definitely a throw back and the thing I noticed the most is that for the first time I can tell I'm 32.  I think it's because when I look in the mirror at this sort of 80's sweater dress w/belt & tights & my hair pulled back I resemble what the corporate women looked like in 80's movies like Working Girl and Mannequin...less the shoulder pads.  These women were in their early 30's & I thought they looked "so cool" and couldn't wait to be them, well my friends, today...I am!

Kwame is killing me!!

Ok, this trial is just a mess & Kwame just keeps making a fool out of himself.  All he keeps saying is "I don't know" or "I didn't understand that" and this whole turn over your tax refunds debacle...he says he didn't understand that he had to pay his tax returns to the restitution department.  Well, I'm not an attorney but I understood that he had to fork over his cash refund because it was printed in black & white.  Kwame was an attorney & if he truly doesn't understand anything being said to him then how the hell did he pass the Bar exam?

Now he says he doesn't know what his wife's job is..."homemaker I believe"...really?  Where did your wife get all the money that she donated & opened up funds with? "I don't know".  Dude, if your wife doesn't earn any money then how can you not know where she got the money to make donations or whatever?  Obviously, all the money that you & your wife spent came from you!!

I have to say that the look he keeps making whenever a question is asked is freaking priceless...he gets this look on his face like he's never even heard the words coming out of the mouth of the lawyer, you can see this look on his face in the picture attached.

Now, the questions I would like answered are: where is he staying while he's hear for the hearings & who's paying for it?  During this hearing he has had to fly to MI from TX twice (so far) so who's paying for the flights?  All he keeps doing is taking more & more cash from the city & in my book that's not cool!  If I had five minutes with him I would just like to say "dude, you are the definition of hood rich, you spend all your cash on big ticket & label items & can't pay your debts, nothing is in your name, you seem to think that the world owes you something when in reality you owe us all an apology & a lot of effing money! Oh and your wife is an asshole for staying with you because you are just using her to put everything in her name".

Ok, well I guess I should get back to watching it even though the last 20 minutes has just been lawyers arguing with each other and the judge but if you want to tune in, click here!

Follow up with a happy ending...

I roll into the ophthalmologist's office today for a follow up regarding a skin tag I had removed from my eye lid a month ago and since it's one of the last appointments they are pretty empty which is nice.  I sit down & start reading my Us Weekly & almost immediately my name is called & a girl is standing there so I get up and walk toward her when she gives me the "fakeist" smile ever & then looks all irritated.  This was a bit annoying but we've all been there so I let it go & followed her into the room where she asked me like 4 questions & then took me to another room & left.  Well about 5 minutes later in walks the Dr. who is a handsome man in his early 50's probably & his face completely lights up & he says "oh hello, it's nice to see you" and this small moment of interaction totally made my day & no, not because he's handsome.  It's so annoying to me when I see someone that I've recently met & they act like they don't know me & I can definitely say that none of my Dr.'s ever seem to actually know me when I see them.  Now I know that with my other docs I don't see them very often other than my dentist (who definitely knows me) so it's not that odd to act like they don't know me but they could pretend couldn't they?  Anyway, I just wanted to point out that sometimes it just takes an honest & acknowledging smile to brighten up a day & to make up for the poor attitude from the others around.
