They All Find Me

Some of the web searches that people do, that send them to the Ashram:

ices scraper gay   (Huh?)

mr gay 2008  (Well, I don’t know if I’m “the” Mr. Gay 2008!)

pooh corner TV episodes  (You see, the writer’s strike is driving people to me!)

 akshay kumar hairy  (Why yes. Yes, he is…)

and last, but not least:

gerard butler boytoy   (Doh! The cat is out of the bag! Sorry AZ!)

Move Away

Sigh. There will never be another band as fabulous as Culture Club was. Enjoy!

Make it Real

Oh the things you learn on Wikipedia!

For instance, I didn’t know until I read their entry there, that The Jets are Mormons!

Who knew?!!

Torchwood and Trading Spaces

Busy night of television viewing last night kiddies!

We had the season premiere of Torchwood AND the season premiere of Trading Spaces to watch!

Torchwood: The first episode “Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang” was fabulous! It reunited Capt. Jack with an old lover from his “Time Agent” days.

A male lover named “Capt. John” (brilliantly played by James Marsters (a.k.a. Spike from Buffy the Vampire Slayer!)).

I can only hope that the rest of the season is as good as this episode! As I’ve mentioned before, season one didn’t exactly blow my skirt up. There were three, maybe four episodes that I really enjoyed, the rest were too bloody and gory for my tastes.

Hopefully we’ll see less of that in season two…

Trading Spaces: After three dismal years without the “heart of the show”, Paige Davis, the idiots in charge at TLC finally came to their senses and brought Paige back!

It was enjoyable enough, although they’ve tweaked the concept of the show again. Instead of neighbors “trading spaces” and redoing rooms in each others houses, they’ll be doing episodes where people will be doing rooms in their ex spouse’s homes and situations similar to that.

Unfortunately, they’ve brought back as one of the designers the absolutely dreadful Hildi Santo-Tomas! Ack! The wall treatment that she did to one of the houses last night? Horrible!

Fortunately, they’ve also come up with another new twist. At the end of the show they give each of the homeowners a gift card to Home Depot (the show’s sponsor) for $500.00! Just in case they want to do some more “home improvement” like fixing whatever crap Hildi put up.

So, for the next several weeks at least, I know what we’ll be doing most Saturday nights!

Drips, Drabs and the Usual Foolishness

Hello My Minions!

Sorry for the delay in posting, but, it’s been a busy last few days.

First things first. The birthday party this past Saturday.

Unbelievable.

To start things off, it was held at Husbandji’s brother “A”‘s house.

And as you will remember, he’s the one who always needs help with everything.

This party was no exception.

It was scheduled to start at 5PM, and Husbandji and Tiamat had been drafted asked to help get things ready.

Husbandji had assumed that they would go over around 3PM and see what still needed doing.

What time did they actually go?

11AM!!!

Why so early you ask?

Because A’s wife wasn’t feeling well, and A hadn’t even gone shopping for anyone’s birthday present yet!!!

When did Husbandji find out that they would have to go over there earlier?

At 8AM that morning!

So…as Husbandji was heading out the door, I told him not to forget his maid outfit(!) which earned me a dirty look, but, what could he say?

So, around 4:30 I drove myself over there, which was quite nice actually, as I didn’t have to listen to Tiamat spewing her usual litany of foolishness from the back seat.

I had made my famous guacamole dip (accompanied by blue corn tortilla chips) which, as always, was a huge hit! (I always bring home an empty bowl…) 🙂

Anyway, the party, as all of Husbandji’s family gatherings are, was barely controlled chaos.

Tiamat as usual was her annoying self.

She was first in line at the buffet. She had at least four glasses of wine during the evening. And she was shouting orders to her children for most of the evening.

But, believe it or not, she wasn’t the most annoying part of the evening.

Husbandji’s brother “M” and his wife “IW” (Idiot Wife) were.

They had, once again, brought uninvited their two young granddaughters, ages five and three.

Now don’t get me wrong, these are good kids, but most of the family feels that it’s presumptuous for them to keep bringing these kids to every event without at least asking ahead of time. It’s not like these kids live with them, and the rest of the family isn’t that close to the kids’ parents (who, by the way, don’t attend any of the family’s functions), so no one understands why they keeping bringing them.

But of course, no one wants to say anything about it.

Typical.

Anyway, when the time came for the Darling Nephew to open his presents, both of the grandaughters sat down next to him and started helping him open his gifts! Sometimes even before he got to them himself!

And neither M nor IW said a word!

Now I ask you My Minions, is this normal behaviour at a kid’s birthday party? I’m out of my realm of knowledge here.

The Darling Nephew is only three, so you could tell that he wasn’t quite sure why they were “helping” him or for that matter, how to react to it.

At one point IW spoke up.

“Audrey!”, she called to the older granddaughter.

“Audrey!”. (Finally, I thought! She’s going to tell them to let The Darling Nephew open his gifts on his own!)

“Audrey, I love you!!”

What. The.  F**k?!!!

I thought that I was going to have a stroke.

But, I bit my tongue. I already have a reputation for speaking my mind in Husbandji’s family (can you imagine that?!) so I decided to just keep my mouth shut.

Fortunately, M and IW left shortly after that, as they “had to get the girls ready for bed”, but believe me, there were plenty of little group conversations once they had left concerning them!

And I learned something else about them.

Something unbelievable. (I’m sitting here as I type this, still shaking my head just thinking about it!)

It was one of the older niece’s birthdays a short time ago.

M and IW, as is their custom, gave the niece a check instead of taking the time to shop for something.

The check bounced.

Can you believe that?!!!

Their own niece!!

Just when I think that they can’t top their atrocious behaviour, they somehow manage to do just that!

In other news, we finally got new phones!

We both decided on the Motorola RAZR V3. So far we’re very happy with them!

Bwahahahaha!! Now I have a camera phone! Expect to see some “interesting” photos in the months to come! (As soon as I remember that I have it with me in order to take them!) 🙂

The Twins are doing well! They’re gaining weight every day, and according to my nephew “Z”, they’re crying a lot!

I guess that’s all for now! Talk to you all soon!

And Here’s Gabbana!!!

Isn’t he a doll?!! Husbandji and I couldn’t be prouder!

I went to see my sister and the twins this morning. They should be coming home tomorrow.

Dolce was content to sleep during my entire visit, but, Gabbana was wide awake and looking around. I wonder if this is their personalities manifesting already! Only time will tell!

Tonight is a multiple-birthday party on Husbandji’s side. (Husbandji, “A”‘s wife, and the Darling Nephew were all born between the 20th and the 23rd). So, I am sure that I will have some “Tiamat tidbits” to share tomorrow!
