Halloween Treats

Should one serve a 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon with Baby Ruth Candy Bars??? Should one even think about such a thing? Hell yes...seems to me it's a perfect match! Give it a whirl...perhaps a new Halloween tradition in the making. May I say...it's simply beautiful tonight. Snow on Halloween...soft quiet snow...the quiet is SO QUIET it seems loud...ya know what I mean? I've got a fire going in the woodstove, a handful of the kids candy and I'm thinking about opening up that bottle of vino...sigh...if I can only stay awake that long...yawn...of course the candy is the main inspiration...I could probably eat candy while I sleep...in fact...I think I have. Goodnight all...(as if..."all"...smirk)

I remember when I loved to "Fall Back" The time change was an extra hour of dancing and drinking at a club somewhere...now...it just means...well nothing really...damn...I think I just depressed myself...8(

Obsessed

I am a consumer of shampoos...an addict really. I love to buy shampoo. I can't seem to stop. I guess I'm looking for that miracle cure...that one perfect combination of chemicals that will magicaly transform me into someone I am not...a big haired sorority girl, a thick maned saucy wench, a shiney tressed perfume girl at the cosmetics counter at a mall...so far...no luck at all. I have thin mousy hair that tends to hang limply. In fact my locks have sort of a sad sack thing going on. My hair energy level is zero. My bounce is flat. Anyway...my husband motioned at me the other day. He asked me why, as I took out a couple of new bottles of shampoo from the shopping bag, I felt the need to buy more hair washing material? I was startled by the question. "Because we were almost out" I told him surprised that he had noticed. Sadly he shook his head and motioned for me to follow him up the stairs to the bathroom. He gently took my hand and said "Honey, look in the shower and tell me if you really needed to buy more shampoo." I opened the door and counted about 12 half full (or half empty) bottles of shampoo gleaming from every available inch of space. "Well" I muttered "I don't take a shower very often I usually take a bath and besides this one is going to make me hair gleam like a Fall day, and this one is infused with essence of something that will make my hair grow thicker!" He just stared at me and said "You need help!" and walked off. I had to admit as I tried to find empty space to store the new poos maybe I did have just a tad too many. The towels were sitting in a neat pile beside the bathroom cupboard and the cupboard itself was holding 2 washclothes a hand towel and about 16 bottles of hair hopes, the bathtub was ringed by containers with names like Herbal Essence, Biolage, Suave, various baby shampoos, Chamomile infused, Lavendar scented, and too many other to name. I'm going to have to face up to it. Maybe there is a 12 step program I can join...if anybody knows of one...please let me know. I don't know how long I can hold off buying new goodies...HELP! I'm having a bad hair day!!!

I've been thinking about this black and white picture I saw...a picture of a girl in a tank of water with a "gentleman" outside...peering in...I'll put it up but it doesn't look very good on this blue background....I can't get it out of my mind! I keep thinking "Tank Girl". I looked up the definition of tank and Webster's Pocket dictionary says a tank is a receptical for artificial liquids...go figure

Today I watched Monk...what a riot! I love that show! Here I was talking about NOT watching TV and today I sat my arse on the couch and watched like 3 episodes in a row.
I also had to go back to work and check on my sick patients/residents...not big improvements but not worse thank goodness. I woke up with a scratchy lil cough this am and thought Oh no...now I'm gonna get it....but I feel better this afternoon.

Oh My Lord...I hate October Flu Season!!!!!!!!! Agh!!! Everyone is getting sick already and it is TOO early. I walked into work Friday (in case you don't know I am a registered nurse who consults with an Assisted Living Facility and I also work in ambulatory surgery) anyway...I walked into ALF and whammo....2 pretty serious resp illnesses and tonoc I checked in and I can see another 1 or 2 creeping up! No fair for those people! I am afraid it's going to be a long shitty Winter full of illness...enough of that...at least the weather here is gorgous....and last noc I actually watched tv and saw a most interesting documentary about transexuals...or maybe it was transgender...anyway....this poor man...who was a woman....but now...a man....was dying of cervical cancer.....I swear....if that isn't a helluva note....I mean...think of all the crap he went through and then...Wa Lah...she is a man....and happy with his identity......then to be told....Sorry.......you have cancer! SHIT Did anybody else see this show on HBO? Check out Southern Comfort....... I don't watch much tv except for documentaries( I love them) and of course...ER(so I can say...yah...right!)...and that's about it. I guess I'm just out of the loop....ahhhh well.

Fire Fire Mouse Fire

Okay...so you get the idea...I was a fire bug...god I loved fire...still do...but now...I've got other fish to fry. There is a mouse in my house! AHGHHHH! I actually screamed and had a broom in my hand...I feel so...I don't know...Sunday schoolish...silly assed lame. I can dig into the grossest wound with pus running in rivulets...I can clean up an impacted rectum...I can draw blood, start IV's...yet a goddamned mouse can make me scream!!! Good Grief! I heard this munching today...munch munch crunch...I am as sharp as a tac! I knew it was a mouse...so what if I've got a 15 pound cat who has eaten 3...yes 3 hamsters...so what if I have a puppy who has hunted down every last crumb in the house....I still had a stinking mouse in the house! I narrowed it down to the pantry...odd right???...I called and called for my "mouser" ...she never showed up. I knew where to find her though........up in my sons room....snuggled in his beanbag chair....too lazy to get up and catch this mouse!!! I hauled her ass out.....stuffed her into the pantry.......and waited......she just cried and tried to bash the door down. I ended up biffing the little mouse with the broom...shooting it across the room to my waiting stove....just like a hocky player! Eventually we got it with a mouse trap...but....I can only think my house is as dirty as a crap factory....UGH.......Well I'm tired.....and have to work tomorrow......................yuck...............nighty night, Sheryl
