I know many of you love this show for the great music, or for the hilarious comments from Sue Sylvester.  There have been many shows that I have loved...I mean 90210 (original cast)???!! HELLO!!!  The Bugs Bunny & Tweety Show...YES!  I loved Mamma's Family, Nell, 227, 30 Rock, AMNTM, Grey's Anatomy and so many more.....but this show for some reason or a million sticks with me.
 
High school was a really difficult time for me...I don't need to tell any of you - I know it was the worst of many people's years...torment, bullying in some way or another, heart ache and jealousy.  Girls being the best of friends with you and in an instant, your roommate is sleeping with your ex.  It's where you find your first love and then have that thrown in your face...where you make friends with some of the most amazing people - and some of the most insane people you will likely know...
 
Because I wore many hats in high school, I think this show is my favorite because I see myself in every character...
 
Puck - aside from totally wanting to jump his bones and dry hump him for hours like when I was a teenage girl...I also had my moments of rebellion and rule breaking.
 
Kurt - well...I like boys.  Aside from that, I also felt so alienated for being either the new girl at school or for being different. 
 
Rachel - I was fairly intelligent...I also had the "goodie too shoes" image for a while..which got trashed when I started to be similar to Puck.
 
Finn - well, I was never the captain of any team nor did I worship a grilled cheesus sandwich - but I know that when push came to shove, I would stand up for a friend or give them whatever I could to help.
 
Mercedes - with being alienated or made fun of for whatever reason or another - I also had a body image problem in grade 10 that was really hard to get through....I wasn't sure what to think about the boobs that exploded and the ass that popped out like a bag of microwave popcorn...  I just didn't know how or what to think of myself...
 
As for Shuster and Sue ...well I have done stupid things, said stupid things, been in the wrong place at the wrong time...I have lost great things in my life and tried to been vindictive....
 
As for the rest of the cast...I have been the one pointed at, different, scared, challenged.  I am a girl - with nothing else, I am a girl with feelings, and I am human....
 
I love this show because no matter who you are, what you are, who you love it doesn't matter...the message is strong...
 
...cus you're the greatest...just the way you are!...

Seistors, Best Friends
She is the one who does not  me;
or make me feelthan myself.

She is the one who knows that I am thinking;
by just looking in my eyes - she can sense I'm twitching.
She is my best friend, myand confidant;

She'll tell me the no matter if it's this I want...(or ask for)
There isn't anything we can't talk of;
No subject too taboo - or that is off colour.
She makes my smile come through
even theof days, it's true....

My sister is my best friend; the truest of bonds.
Without her I'm not whole, notclose to being me.
We're there to hold each others hands, we'll stand beside each other
and will be our own biggest fans.
We will always up for each other's fashion fails,
and will (or steal the other's) fashion wins.
I love her with my  and will 
be there for her when she needs it
but I don't have to tell you all this, or even write it because she knows
no matter what, I will always be there.





SIS...I love you!

BRING ON DAY 1: a picture of myself with 15 facts


fact * factoids * tidbits * welcomed information * details * evidence * the nitty gritty *

1.  I love to smoke cigarettes.  I am not classified as a full-time full blown smoker as I don't buy them nor do I smoke daily or even weekly..but I do love to smoke when I drink - which may lead me to smoke a few days in a row -- but then there are months that I go without smoking.  My favourite brand was/is Players Smooth Regular; however, I also love Belmont Milds or Cloves for all you American friends....

2.  My left thumb is smaller than my right thumb by a considerable difference.  This isn't a Seinfeld-type noticeable man-hand thing or anything BUT - when I was 3 years old, we lived in this old apartment building.  As a family (egg doner, sperm doner, elder sister and myself) we were coming home from being out somewhere and we came in through the garage.  You know how heavy those fire-proof doors are right??? Well, I was walking through it and somehow, my thumb got caught in the door and it slammed shut.  When my parents were able to get the door opened, my poor thumb was hanging there by a thread and it was the grossest sight ever (so the egg doner tells me) and really I would really sense that from this tale.  Anyhow, the sperm doner picked me up and rushed me to the hospital (without telling anyone where he was going or anything -- another story for another day)...where I received several stitches....and a banana Popsicle.  I will never forget that Popsicle...hmm. yum.

3.  I dye my hair a lot- and have done so over the past years...I don't know why really...  I don't have 1 grey hair on my body - and my husband actually thinks I do!!!  He thinks that that is why I dye my hair all the time.  Truth be told, I just feel super bland and dull if I don't get a semi-makeover every 6 weeks or so.

4.  I was supposed to be a boy born on Christmas day named Wesley.  NO JOKE!!!  This isn't some tale of cross genderism or anything...but when my parents got an ultrasound done, they told them I was gonna be a boy.  I don't have a twig or berries luvs...but I appreciate them for sure!

5.  I hate cheesy Christmas decorations!  I can't lie about this ...and it's a serious problem.  I believe that Christmas Trees should be classic and beautiful not full of popcorn, tinsel and other things that guk it up.  Yes, sadly this includes the paper ring chains, decorations that the kids made and other things that don't match or follow in my colour scheme.  The truth of it all is that I never tell my kids that I don't like it, and every decoration they make goes on the tree with as much pride as my decorations that I have collected over the years - but really inside my heart is breaking like a glass bulb in shards of about a million pieces....This year I am able to say that I get my own tree as our house is big enough to support them!!!

6.  I have never kissed a girl.  I am not Katy Perry like - or like anyone else that has.  It's not something that I wish to do or have ever thought about..nothing personal ladies, I just haven't.  I have cherry chap stick though, so maybe one day.

7.  Literally just read a magazine heading that says Kristen Stewart and Rob Pattinson got married??  WHAT THE FRIG?!

8.  I have an obsession with the colour purple and feel that if it's not my colour it will be.

9.  My dinner consisted of 12 almonds, 1 chicken wing and 1/2 bottle of water -- this isn't something I am proud of but I am sitting here thinking about food and am not even hungry...did the water fill me or is 12 almonds all it takes???

10.  I have to have an ultrasound of my breasts next week.  I have no idea how or what to make of this, but it's a fact that I have to go.  I am nervous, anxious and unsure of what to think but I am going in optimistically!!!

11.    I have had some incredibly embarrassing things happen to me at the worst of times...I feel that this is due to the fact that I started the 80's and that I can't be "THAT" friggen cool --- a good dose of humility lasts a long time right??   From dumping boiling hot tea on a friend when giving a hug to sliding under my van in mid winter on a date I can tell you that I have endured a lot...I hope it's over!!

12.  I secretly wish that I lived in NYC.  I would live in Chelsea or the West Village.  I think that I would be a great New Yorker...really hip and trendy like.  I would have a 5 bedroom brownstone or even a good loft space where the design was super cool.  I would also have a cat named Obbob and a dog names Tavern.

14.  Has a new tattoo sure ma pied.

15.  Really is feeling better about my eating, health, emotional imbalances and over sensitive hormones since starting to write again!!! Thanks for being there ya bunch of biatches!

Home is where my Heart Is

So I have been writing again!!! Thank CHRIST!!!!  But since I have started up again, one thing has really remained so true.

Home is where my heart is...

Today was one of the best days we have had as a family in a long time - so I wanted to share them with you all...if you're my friend on the FB you may have seen these...but I don't care -- here they are again!!

If you don't take the time to get out and enjoy your family - how the funk are they supposed to enjoy you?  Maybe part of being a happy mom and part of an amazballs-to-the-wall family is really being THAT happy-go-lucky-balls-to-the-wall type person??!!!  I think so.

Anyhow, enjoy my family day - I know I did!!!!
Rudolph Kisses with my little man

Mommy and Bella

I don't know what I love more...the Shrek ears or her face!!

The man of my dreams and my frist dream ever answered...perfection

xoxoxox

I want to be a MILF

Who wouldn't!?!?!

I am back on "get the frig back in shape" kick.  This momma's needs to get her groove back soon and I don't think that Stella can help!

Contrary to Mr. Insatiable's belief, I have been eating reasonably well - but I also haven't worked out at all in forever. I swear he thinks that I sit and eat pizza every day, bon bons at night and never enjoy fruits and veggies etc.  What he doesn't know is that I rarely eat that stuff...even if I order if for the kids, a ginormous salad full of proteins, and veg is not far from my reach!!

I will say that I started to do a yoga video the other day and went through this mental break-down of why I was doing what I was doing when I knew full well, that afterwards I would likely just slump on the couch and enjoy a piece of chocolate cake.  This was also during post PMS week so I am allowed that...right?  Pre-PMS week is full of hormonal imbalances, raging hormones and the slight psychotic murmurs of me the bat-crazy momma who needs a coffee stat!  Pre-PMS week doesn't involve a huge intake of shitty foods- this is the week where I need to eat a ton of fruits, veggies and other good things....I also know that drinking water is one thing to help ease off the bitching cramps, so I do that also...the week of PMS is when things fall to shyte.  This will later be examined but let's just say that its' been bad.

Why can't my motivation stick with me?!

Anyhow,  I was catching up on some of my favourite blogs and see that everyone else has also been going through their own lapse in motivation for whatever reason.  It really sat well with me though, the fact that I need to start doing something again...

Sadly, it's even taken away my "drive" to be a better me.

My 30 year old self will soon shed skin and emerge a 31 year old so the goal is to be a MILF!!!


I am taking Sarah's advice (Running with Scissors) and gonna be AWESOME - and I'll add a dash of my own knowledge that eating right and working out a bit will really help.  I'm open to hearing what you peeps do when your motivation is nil and all you want to do is curl up on the couch or in bed and sleep away your November.

Anyhow, 2 posts, in 2 days is also a start....right?

Life Standing Still

It's been a while since my last update with you all...I know; sad. pathetic and a little shameful but hell...you likely wouldn't have wanted to hear what I had to say as I wasn't really positive or motivating...

Things have been going well though....The psychos are getting big; school is going well...and it's almost Christmas...GOD where did this year go though?

I am really getting excited for Christmas...it's the only time of the year when people don't look at you crazy for having rum in your egg nog..at the grocery store; bailey's in your coffee mug at church or when you aren't ridiculed about wearing those amazing sweaters your grandma made you with the fucking ugliest penguins wearing Santa hats ever that make you drink at church you only wear when you see her  unless you have been drinking too much and accidentally go to work with it on 

I also love the fact that I have started shopping for the kids and Mr. Insatiable.  We are musing over the idea of a Wii for them.  I like the idea as it's easy to get and we all could have a great time.  I had also heard about some fantastic wii fit things and harry potter games so I am pretty stoked. (if you can reccommend some great games etc, please let me know).

This time of year also means that we are closing in on the end of the year!  2011 - sounds like a space odyssey or something.  I remember when I was little and imagining life in my 30s..It didn't really entail children or so I thought, but I had a husband and a house..so I guess I was a friggen clairvoyant at that tender age.  Who knew I was so friggen cool?  Ya, I know I totally am but awesomeness of this magnitude...psh,

So you may ask, where the hell has IH been???  You also may not fucking care either  For those of you who care, I have just been here.

I wake up, go to work, come home, make dinner ....that's it. I hadn't (until last night) been out in what seems forever - but I managed to get a night off "momma duty" so my friend and I ventured into Toronto to see Jamie Oliver ---the bloody cheeky monkey he is .  It was a Q&A of sorts and really was entertaining.  He's got a great personality for one, and his sense of humor is really like a lot of our own.  Sexual innuendo's and double entendre's...

We had a fun night, took the train and I got to love the city!!!  Walking downtown made me wonder what else can we do???!  I love it there - although I couldn't live in a BIG city like Toronto or New York, I definitely need to appreciate and discover more of the area...

I have been working a lot also - still the normal hours, but it's been really busy so at the end of my days I feel completely exhausted.  Having to manage the kids on top of that is something that I can only explain as overwhelming and intense.

We haven't done anymore caterings; although, we were approached  to do one for someone.  I feel like working with/for that group gets us nowhere.  It's all promises and lies....we still hadn't been paid by them from the last "great idea"...so I am not at any point wanting to get into that again.

As for writing, and me time...well....I am trying. 

I had written something the other day and I was really proud.  I took a few moments to stop and get it off my chest which could have been fueled by the 2 bottles of wine that mysteriously vanished  Drunk writing sometimes does allow something so profound and amazing to be written.  Will I be sharing it???  Maybe.

You see, dear readers, there are some things about life that I hadn't shared as I wasn't sure of how to say it....some things that I felt I could be judged.  We'll see.  I will say that when you love someone, you love all of them - the good bits, the naughty bits and the worst bits...no matter what happens, you are always there standing beside them.  This has been proved time and time again through the greatest of love stories....right down to the story of Mr. and Mrs. Insatiable.

Ok, so that totally killed the mood like a fart in the middle of foreplay - but whatever..I am back and will be trying to commit myself to writing more and frequently and awesomely (did I make that word up?!)

Anyhow, so whoever is out there, still reading my diatribes, THANK YOU and I miss you.  I am now going to read my favourite blogs and catch up with you all...if you feel like making my night, please drop a comment and tell me how you are keeping!?!  Tell me a joke - and if it's a good one or you make me laugh so hard that I spit out my drink, I'll call you my hero of the day!

Have a great night friends!!!
