Eff. Marry. Kill. - 1st edition

I've been DYING to participate in this since I first read Michelle's blog with a guest post by the Undercover Blonde.


The concept is to pick 3 guys and pick which you'd eff, marry and kill.  Michelle always has a theme to her's - first week was the dudes from Full House, then it was Kim Kardashian's exes, then Jessica Simpson's exes, etc.  They all have something in common.  This week her theme is hot men from the 80's - go check it out.

Well... it's hard to come up with 3 guys that are somehow connected.  So I finally thought about who I'd want to eff the hardest (yep, hardest) and went from there.

My 'theme', if you will, is: Good Will Hunting
Bare with me.
Matt Damon, Robin Williams, Ben Affleck

My Eff would OBVIOUSLY be Matt Damon.  Yum Yum Yum.  I could eat him.
My Marry would be Robin Williams.  I think he'd be a great partner, they say marry someone you can talk to because the sex won't last forever.  I think he'd make me laugh until the day I die.  Robin Williams, no sex, just marriage :)
My Kill would be Ben Affleck.  I think he is the WORST actor and seems like an overall douchebag.  Not interested in him being on this planet any longer.

YAY - I'm so happy to finally be playing along!

So... if you want to play along, go link up with Michelle and Heather: OR here

Now, tell me of these 3 who you'd eff, marry, and kill - GO!

Buying Generic pt. 2

Back some time ago (circa 2009), I posted a TFT about buying generic and how somethings you just HAVE to purchase the brand name - I want to dig this list up and get some current input.  Feel free to click through and view the post, but I'm going to copy the list here and add what was added in comments.

  • Paper Towel
  • Mac & Cheese
  • Dr. Pepper
  • Small Kitchen appliances
  • Cereal
  • Make-up
  • Q-Tips
  • Most Clothing
  • Bread
  • Cat Food
  • Laundry Detergent

So I'm opening this up to you - have we missed anything that you want to add?  What do you refuse to buy generic?

Random v12.4

  1. I claim to be 'green', not like super green, but I do recycle and try to not waste paper unnecessarily at work, etc.... but for some reason when I'm done washing my hands (in the bathroom, breakroom, etc.) I use too much paper towel.  Not WAY too much, but I usually take more than I need.  I tried to not do this, but I really dislike drying my hands with paper towel with wet spots all over it.
  2. If I find paper towel in a dispenser that you have to pull that handle to get more towel - I always (ALWAYS) count how many times I pull the handle while I'm doing it.  I laugh at myself every time.
  3. Steve and I are leaving for Grand Marais on Sunday.  I can't wait.  That little city holds such a special place in my heart (both personally and in my relationship) and I can see us going up there every summer for the rest of our lives.
  4. Tomorrow is Steve's summer work party (yes, they have one in the winter and summer - remember how we won first class flights to anywhere in the US back in December?!  While it's not in the US, Mexico is included, so I'm pretty sure that is where we are going!)  Anyhow - I don't know if I posted about last summers work party or not, but this year is pretty much the same as last in at least one aspect.  Steve's boss has told everyone to make a mini golf hole - this years theme is "Around the World" so they all drew an area of the world out of a hat, we got New York City!  So at first we were going to make the Brooklyn Bridge out of popsicle sticks, but ... well, it didn't work out.  So now we are doing Central Park.  I'm gonna try and remember to take a post photos.  Should be interesting to see what everyone comes up with - last year was pretty neat (there was not a theme last year, just 'make a hole').  The evening events are a surprise, last year we went to a Twins game then hit the bars.
  5. I love the song "Pink Cadillac"
  6. I think Kate Middleton is one of the most beautiful people I've ever seen.
  7. My boyfriend is the most amazing person in my life.

No Title - Just Rant

I'm officially defeated.
I woke up today to puke and poop many places from my sick little cat, I decided to hang back for a bit and watch to see if he showed any signs of improvement... round about 7am, when I knew Steve's alarm was set to go off I went upstairs and held back my tears to tell him what was going on and why I was still at home... we decided to turn on the AC because we're pretty sure my cat gets really hot on warm days... so the first thing I do is go to close a window and as I'm trying to lock it the fucking thing cracks and breaks into maybe 5 pieces... more or less, in my hand.  Like, I pushed my fucking hand through a window... right through it. How I didn't get a single cut or scrape on me is beyond me.

On top of this, I go into work because I'm told there is a meeting that I need to be a part of pretty much first thing in the am... so I go in with the plan to just attend the meeting, setup a shipment, and go home.
At the meeting I'm informed that all the 'hauling ass' we've been doing to get shit entered over the last 2 months is now all having to be redone (essentially in a different 'company' in our software)... so that's fucking great.  NOT.
Then I have the owner up my ass about some shit that was never and should never be my job.  If he'd even attempt to do a lick of work in a given day, I'd probably die of a heart attack.
While deep down, I'm not capable of murder, I'd give anything to have this guy wiped from the planet.  If only I had the ball or the money to make that happen.  This dude, partial owner of a company that I technically don't even work for yet, is good at one thing: micromanaging.  I'm over it and I'm done listening to him.  I've applied for so many jobs I can't even keep them straight.

I'm behind on my blog reading, so much so I'm ready to just say fuck it and clear my reader and start fresh.  Sorry I haven't commented lately, on most of your blogs, I may not comment on the ones in the past weeks at all.
I suck.

Chicago was great, Chicago was hot (temps in the hundreds, heat indexes near 106!!), Chicago trip was too short.  I am happy to be home, because I very much get home sick everytime I am on vacation (i'm a homebody)... I really could have stayed gone forever when it comes to going back to work.

Going away

Steve and I are Chicago bound tomorrow for the long weekend - yay!  We're driving.  We're going to watch fireworks from Navy Pier!

My bestie, Pam, got married this past weekend:

It was fabulous and fun!  I'll post more, maybe, upon my return.

Have a wonderful and safe 4th of July (my gma will be turning 88 on the 4th!!)
