My week.

Monday
Harry had hockey, so Cooper and I watched The Muppets. My favorite muppet is Floyd. He’s so cool and laid back – the opposite of me! Cooper’s favorite muppet was the little girl giving Walter the side-eye. Cooper is also a big Chris Cooper fan.

Did I have a soda, candy and popcorn while watching the movie? No. I had celery sticks, apple sauce and water.

Tuesday
I checked in on the roses. After finally getting rid of whatever was eating holes in the leaves, our five rose bushes came down with powdery mildew. And just when they were looking so healthy and lush and were starting to bloom. I had to cut them all back. Boo.

I did my ironing. I hate ironing. Here is a shirt that is supposed to be “no iron”. Grrrr.

Wednesday
Wednesday we got in the car and headed to Temecula‘s wine country (about an hour north of us). Last year Harry gave me a horseback ride and wine tasting lunch for my birthday. We finally got around to doing it. My horse’s name was Rusty and Harry’s was Quincy. It was super hot, and my horse kept fighting me to be in front of the guide, but it was fun!

After our ride we went to Wilson Creek Winery for our wine tasting. Woo hoo!

Then we had lunch. The restaurant was outdoors. They had misters which was lovely on such a hot day. The rolls had cheese on them (yuck), but the crackers were pretty good. I had a (steak) salad.

Thursday
Thursday was the last day of my painting class. Some of the students brought in snacks. One of them brought chocolate cupcakes. I took one because it would have been rude of me to refuse.

Here is the painting I’ve been working on. It’s Franz Marc‘s Red Horses. It’s a little off because the dimensions of my canvas are different from the original. And I still have a lot yet to do. I’m the queen of unfinished projects, but hopefully I’ll keep working on it.

Friday
After dinner at a Mexican restaurant with friends (I had 2 daiquiris, peach and strawberry), Harry and I decided to go to the local dive bar to drink some more. He had beer and some kind of cinnamon shot thing. I had 2 rum and cokes. They have a neat jukebox with bajillions of songs.

We killed zombies, played air hockey (Harry won) and pool (Harry won – maybe it’s because I played this way…).

Saturday
We went to our local farmer’s market. We got some fresh, organic California strawberries.

Then we took the car in to Pep Boys because the air conditioner broke. This would be their second go round trying to fix it (this isn’t our first experience having to bring the car back for a re-repair). After we got there they told us to bring it back another day (after just telling us on the phone to bring it in). After we get it fixed we shall never, ever return. Manny, Mo and Jack can suck it.

We decided to have lunch in Hillcrest. We went to Freebirds World Burrito. It’s kinda like Chipotle, but with more options. Check out my huge burrito:

We sat outside and guess what music was playing? “Black Betty”. I kid you not. Also, I totally didn’t have a brownie or cookie. Willpower!

On the way home we saw this bar. It reminded me of Adam.

Sunday
I didn’t do much. I can’t find my brand of shampoo anywhere anymore, so I used this brand for the first time. It smells like flowers and fruit salad.

I also read, played on the computer and watched tv. Then I worked on Cooper’s exciting post for Monday.
Check out Cooper’s Corner for a very important announcement: http://cooperscorner.info/

So how was your weekend? And who is your favorite muppet? Let me know in comments!

It’s The Cocky & Rude Match Game! (3.03)

It’s The Cocky & Rude Match Game! (3.01)















My New BFF!


While some of you were digging out your umbrellas, battening down the hatches, and stocking up on bottled water, candles and Cheetos, Harry and I were on our way to see Kathy Griffin in concert!


I made a shirt for the occasion. This is my first foray into bedazzling. Yes, I know the “I” is crooked.


On our way to Costa Mesa.


It’s so great to be back in California! Colorado sucked.


We got into a little traffic on our way.


Yay! “Pop Music” by M.


Shout out to the Oldz (you know who you are).


I got hungry and needed a snack.


We had dinner at Gordon Biersch. Beer for Harry and a caramel martini for me. Yum!


I had the chicken curry lettuce cups (ok, but not very spicy – and the dish needed some lime).
Harry had a sausage party.


We had to pay for parking!! Don’t they know who we are?!! Sheesh.


On the way in we saw Team Griffin – or as Kathy calls them, “her gays”. It was cool to see them in person after seeing them with her on the My Life on the D-List, Same Name, and other shows.


We were second row, it was too awesome.


Kathy had tweeted that this was what she was going to wear, but really she wore black pants, a black shirt with a belt and flats. She is super tiny and has a Scarlett O’ Hara waist.

We went to the first show that night. They were taping both shows for a Bravo special to air in the middle of September. Kathy’s mom Maggie came out (with a glass of wine) to say a few words and introduce Kathy. She got a standing ovation and was adorable. Kathy was hilarious, of course. Some of her bits included the Kardashians, Cher, Anderson Cooper, The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Marcus Bachman and Casey Anthony.

Harry (best husband ever) won a contest on Kathy’s blog to meet her between shows! So we hustled around to the back of the theater and then waited in a room backstage with 16 other people for a meet and greet. She only had a few minutes, so she wasn’t signing autographs. She was there just long enough to give hugs and take pictures. She was warm, engaging and super sweet to everyone.


I told her my cheeks still hurt from smiling and she said, “Thanks, that means I’m doing my job.”
She liked my shirt. As you can see we are totally bff!


She had done a bit about how she walks down the street and eyef*cks all the guys, so I asked her to eyef*ck Harry – and she did! I also asked her if she watched Dance Moms, and she said, “Of course.” I should have said something better, but I was an excited mess. Then she was ushered back out the door. It was all a blur and over way too soon. Kathy’s one of those people I would love to sit down and have a long chat with. I LOVE her.


Before the long drive home, Harry and I stopped at The Yardhouse and shared a brownie with ice cream (Diet? What diet?).

Other than briefly shaking James Taylor’s hand before one of his concerts, this was my first celebrity encounter. I couldn’t have asked for a better one!

So – did I not have the best night ever? What would you have said to Kathy? What celebrity would you love to meet? Let me know in the comments!

Broken Picture Telephone – Round Two

A long time ago on a blog very much like this one, I started a bunch of games of Broken Picture Telephone. Through my neglect it took forever to get the second round of this game to come to a close. My apologies for the delay, but I truly feel it was well worth the wait.  Want a closer look?  Click each image to see it at its full resolution.

Alice was shocked when the water balloon burst in her face – Mikey

Josh's artwork

An evil clown and the monkey riding on his head broke a balloon which frightened the teenage girl and made her drop her lollypop. -Tam

Adam's artwork

“As Tam was strolling topless through Ottawa’s Thanksgiving Day street festivities, an evil clown and his monkey sidekick appeared to pop her balloon, also causing her to drop her lollipop.” – Mel

Michelle's Art

“Overt displays of American patriotism are grotesque, militaristic, jingoistic, pretentious, often sexually puerile, overuse images of children and anthropomorphic animals, and slather on a forced festiveness that leaves me cold,” said Tam, as she hurried to the candy store to get more lollipops. – David

Kristen "the Kid" 's Art

“Canadians complain that while $5 CA can only buy a lollipop, the U.S.A. basically says to them, “Fuck You, our $5 US can do anything from funding the Olympic Women’s Gymnastics team, help influence a Congressmen’s vote on arms control, or even act as a gratuity for a breakdancing street performer. Suck on that Ottawa, eh?” – FDot

Craig's Art

“Being super-polite, the Canadian had to ask if it was okay to eat his lollipop. So, knowing that Americans only really liked guns, balloons, chicks with wide open legs and breakdancing, Abe gave the finger to the Canadians and told him to fuck off and “suck it”!” – Polt

Enrico's Art

We are insane. What we have done to Tam alone could land us in court for defamation of character. I apologize to Tam (as did many of the artists who worked on that Tam phase). I hope you have enjoyed our second game.
