Hey Wayne!

Is it just me or does the scandalous Illionois Governor Rod Blagojevich look like Mike Myer's long lost brother?!! Every time I see his picture, all I can think of is, "Groovy Baby".
And, by the way, Mike Myers is soooo not funny anymore (just in case you were wondering). His humor passed with the 90's.

I'm Crazed

It all started when I was traveling home from a recent business trip to Las Vegas. I had already read the current Vogue, Us Weekly, and People magazines, so instead I bought a crossword puzzle book. Since buying that book, I do crosswords after dinner each night, when I'm drying my hair in the morning, at work on my lunch break, and I even had a dream about doing crosswords the other night! I don't know how to stop and the best thing is now I have gotten Chris into it as well! I even bought him his very own book. Gosh I feel old.

Pigs In A Blanket

Only in Minnesota would this happen...

You have to wonder if this was some sort of pig plot to escape... one of the pigs told the others that he had heard that when you are loaded into "one of these trucks" that you weren't really going on a field trip but to some place HORRIBLE. So, they all got together, tipped the truck and tried to make a run for it... but they are all too fat to get very far and their little scheme turned into just a brief stopover instead of an escape. THE END. Or is it??! Just as the truck is pulling away after being reloaded, you see the shadow of one of the pigs hiding behind a bush-- he made it and now he will have his revenge-- stay tuned for-- Pig Plot II.

Impressive Find

Every now and again, I'll be at home in the kitchen or living room and I'll hear a cry of surprise and wonderment. It is either 1 of 2 things... 1) Chris using "the tool" to dig wax out of his ears or 2) Chris using my tweezers (ewww) to pluck hairs out of his nose. He then immediately calls me to come and look at his find. I have never seen anyone so fascinated by these two byproducts of the body.

WELL, today I get back to my desk at work after giving a 1.5 hour presentation. I look at my e-mail and I have one from Chris with the following picture and the title line reads "Pulled This Out My Nose"...

And, yes, that is a quarter to use in comparison! What an impressive man, huh??!! I am a lucky girl.

Thanksgiving Eve

Yum, I just love Thanksgiving Eve. Everyone at work is in an over-the-top deliriously happy mood. EVERYONE. Plus, tonight is traditionally the rowdiest night of the entire year-- although my husband claims that it is only rowdy for townies. I am going to go ahead and completely disagree with him on this one and even though I am not going home to hang out with a bunch of people from high school or see old college friends, I am am still going out. Really, I think that is what makes this night truly the most happening - everyone is in a good mood. And why not? It's the start of the holiday season, we have a 4 day weekend ahead, I get to eat A LOT tomorrow. Let's face it, with the state of the economy, we are all in need of a little cheer and Thanksgiving arrived just in time!

In keeping with tradition, I am going to name the top things that I am thankful for (I know it's cheesy, but it must be done):

-My Husband, Chrissy
-My Family- new (Joanne/Mike/Lisa/Ben/Jack) and old (Tit/Boob/Moesha/Skipper)
-Good Careers
-My new Mt. Rushmore plate

It's on!

Today I am oozing with excitement! Not because I only have one more day of work this week due to the Thanksgiving holiday or because I am going to see the long anticipated new James Bond movie this week (anyone who knows me, knows that I am a MASSIVE Bond geek), but mainly because tonight is the reunion show for the Real Housewives of Atlanta (AKA Hotlanta)!!!!! Seriously, I had my doubts that this latest installment of the Bravo series could be as good as the Real Housewives of NYC, but the ATL blew it (and the Orange county version- which I'm not really into) out of the water. Even Anderson Cooper is watching it. Given all of the dirt that has come out after the ladies finished shooting, the reunion is sure to be JUICY and a trainwreck. If you have not seen it, read this article, it will undoubtedly make you want to catch a marathon (which is sure to be airing afterall Bravo only has like 5 shows) sometime over this long weekend.

"It's not true. Some have great stories, pretty stories that take place at lakes with boats and friends and noodle salad. Just no one in this car. But, a lot of people, that's their story. Good times, noodle salad. What makes it so hard is not that you had it bad, but that you're that pissed that so many others had it good." - Melvin Udall (from As Good As It Gets)

Hello blogging world! Today is day 1 of Good Times Noodle Salad. I have decided to start this blog mainly for myself and my husband so we can look back and see what we were doing at certain times in our life-- we are both currently 28 and freshly married. We live in MPLS which can be wonderful or extremely irritating. Wonderful when you are enjoying the many lakes and clean, quaint neighborhoods. Extremely irritating when you want to buy wine and you realize it's a Sunday so you can't. Plus, there's always the old "Minnesota Nice" syndrome which is the round about way that Minnesotans are able to insult each other while still smiling. It makes me a little crazy since I'm always second guessing what people really think of me and if they are being genuinely nice or if it's a back-handed compliment. All of this aside, I can promise you that I will NEVER use this blog to talk about the miserable weather in Minnesota… that's seriously all anyone ever talks about at work (well, at least during the winter). Welcome to my site!
