Wedding Toast Mad Libs

Thanks to LP, I stumbled upon a wedding toast fill in the blank in the paper today. Being that I am slated to be in a wedding this June, I filled it in Mad Libs style accordingly ... and by accordingly, I mean fictitiously.

As many of you know, my name is LIZ, and I am the MOH. I have known J for 13 years, and I have never seen her happier than she is today. Except maybe this one time. J and I were in ATLANTIC CITY, and we went to JAIL. I was feeling GLAMOROUS, and J was doing everything in her power to ESCAPE. I will never forget what J told me: "LIFE IS MISERY." That's typical J: always STUPID. Another time she came close to being as happy as she is today was when she met B. They met at 7-11, and for their first date LAID PIPE. J called me afterwards to tell me how SLOPPY it was. This new person was LETHARGIC, HUNGRY, NEUROTIC. [dramatic pause] I could just tell something was different. There's a quote I've always held dear, and I feel it's appropriate today: "Joy is not in things; it is in us." J and B have found great joy in each other, and we're all fortunate to be sharing it with them today. May their happiness last forever.

No List Friday

My family is doing an overhaul of the backyard ... which has included adding a vegetable garden. In the process of creating the garden an old Wild Cherry Pepsi can littered with bb shots was unearthed. Some people find coins, some find time capsules, some find dinosaur bones ... while others find rusty soda cans.

Best of the Best

This is the 3rd season I have watched American Idol. When season 7 stared, I challenged myself to watch the show from the first tryout to the finale ... and I did. And then I signed on last season, and I have for the most part kept up with this season. That being said, there is just something about AI that I find intriguing. Today was a first for me ... I pre-ordered Crystal Bowersox's performance from last night on iTunes ... which got me to thinking about my hands down favorite songs/ performances from the past 3 seasons ... which include:

  • Jonathan Sexton - Babylon, Love In My Heart

Can a girl catch a freakin break?

Ever since October it has seemed that someone has had a hex on me ... things just have not been going my way, such as:
  • in October my beloved laptop completely bit the dust out of the blue
  • in February my iPod was stolen out of my car
  • my car broke down in March
  • I accidentally broke my mom's digital camera a few weeks ago
  • my cell phone is on it's last leg ... but is taped together for now
  • ... seriously
  • ... and lastly, I once again got the memo that to some I will always be nothing more than a fallback girl.
In conclusion, whoever has the voodoo doll with my name on it ... I'd really appreciate it if you quit sticking pins in it.

01 April 2010


While I did try and stay true to eating like a vegan during the 31 days of March ... there were a couple of times I sold my soul to the carnivore devil. I consumed:
  • bread with cheese sprinkles on it ... to my credit ... I didn't realize it was cheese, I just thought it was seasoning
  • pesto that included cheese ... I didn't realize until reading the ingredients after I was binging on it
  • 2 Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies
  • 2 small bites of tuna ... after a night of drinking
  • 1 huge, delicious New York Strip Steak*
