Hot Flash Friday


It’s the last Hot Flash Friday of 2012 and I wanted to leave you with something that cracked me up.
And every one of these requests is totally reasonable too…

This is not a sponsored post-in fact I grabbed it from You Tube after I watched it on Menopause Matters .

May 2013 bring you peace, happiness and mild hot flashes!


Warts and All. Why I Love My Faults…


I was trolling around on the internet looking for blog inspiration and I found a couple of folks who do Monday Listicles-they throw out a topic and you write 5 or 10 things about that topic. One was the top things you learned in 2012, and the other was what faults are you thankful for.

These may or may not be faults, depending on perspective.  Maybe they are vices, whatever…

1. I am thankful for my impulsiveness or ADD. It helps me decide, fairly quickly, to buy that overpriced handbag (Hey, honey, I can recoup it on eBay!). In addition to some bad decisions, it has also helped me to take chances on myself, bring home cute kitties and puppies from various rescue places, and start this blogging thing…

2. I am thankful for my addiction to carbohydrates. In real life, carbs and starches are my enemy. But my fantasy would be that someone invent a pill so that I could eat delicious bread based meals like stuffing, cakes, pies, hero subs, french fries and more with abandon. I bet the need for depression meds would be much less…

3. I am thankful for red wine. I even drink it at concerts, which is truly lame. Aerosmith and a glass of cab. Never thought THAT would happen…

4. I am thankful for my sometimes lack of a filter. Lets me know who is real and who is not. This really helps in negotiations in today’s cheerful real estate market…

5. I am thankful for my love of stupid television. Honey Boo Boo, Storage Wars, Real Housewives, Kardashians. Reminds me that I am not as crazy as I think I am…

6. I am thankful for the current Zombie craze. I now know that when I become a zombie, I will be skinny and not have to put on makeup to leave the house. And I can eat anything I want. I am truly a meat eater, suits me well…

7. I am thankful for my love of all things Flo Rida, Lady Gaga, Diddy, Kanye et al. Who needs to teach their kids about sex when you can just turn on the radio?

8. I am thankful for Facebook and Twitter. I have been able to reconnect AND meet with some old and new friends and make a fool of myself for people all over the planet.

9. I am thankful for my potty mouth.  Sometimes. It has taken me a while to figure out where and when to use it properly.  But there is just no better word than those that begin with F for when you stub your toe, hit the side of the garage in your hub’s truck, or yell at your teenager when you find your bottle of whipped cream vodka gone from the freezer.

10.  I am thankful for these lists.  Makes me write when I have writer’s constipation.  And gets me going again!

Have a great week!

Where’s Dr. Hotness When You Need Him?


This was my night last nite.  Don’t ask.

Oh, it wasn’t me.

A BFF of mine-ended up in the local ER with horrible right side pain she thought could be appendicitis.  Or an angry ovary.  And no one was able to be with her.  So, of course, I came to the rescue.

Because waiting around, watching the Kardashians, gossiping, and laughing till we hurt (her especially) is TOTALLY something I am up for.

16 was with the boyfriend, BC was in South America, so what better way to spend my WTF Wednesday nite? All I was gonna do was drink copious amounts of cheap wine and watch Honey Boo Boo anyway….

I was hoping for a Greys Anatomy kinda nite-ER door bursting open, people screaming, you know–all that fun stuff.  But up here in the burbs it is WAY to quiet.  The most exciting thing I saw was  a tween bow-head cheerleader with a broken arm. BORING>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

And besides, they had no bar and the nurses didn’t have much personality.  They did not think my comment about the possibility of a hot intern showing up and giving me a pelvic was particularly funny.

And they would not share the morphine they gave my BFF.  That’s not right in so many ways.  Because you know, us girls, we like to share our madness…

But all turned out well for my girlfriend.  She has a pain in her side. We had pant wetting laughs about the situation.

That pain?   I think it’s her douchebag ex husband, if you ask me…………..

50 Shades of Magic Mike….

OOooh, my inner goddess is telling me to go see Magic Mike with the girls tonite.

As a buddy of mine just said, “Time to raise your game, guys!’

What are these middle aged toots going to do with us after the ‘Grey’ trilogy, Magic Mike, and now, Tom Cruise being back on the market. Well, ok, TC not so exciting, but you get my drift.

At least Katie Holmes can start wearing makeup again, and have a somewhat, albeit, very rich, normal life. I guess she woke up one morning and said WTF!!!!!!!??????????? My guess is that happened when she had that baby.   It is pretty easy to be 25 and jaded, because I have been there.

Magic Mike apparently made over $2 million last nite in midnite showings. Who says we don’t go to movies anymore? If it is worth it, we pull on our jammies, smuggle boxed chardonnay in the theatre and watch away.

Review tomorrow-I will not disappoint you.  Pinky swear!

Oh, and bring your copy of Grey.
