Chuck Thursday Sixteen!

Chuck says, "Let's skydive!"
AJ says, "No, you just go..."
She shouldn't bother!

Yeah, that little cherub-faced conniver can talk me into just about anything... I want to go skydiving, but wasn't gonna go this week, but I shouldn't have even tried to decline...

Meanwhile, he hasn't made the appointment yet, so there's a good chance I'll be at the beach come Saturday... :)

PS -- thanks to Jenny B and PJ for reminding me to write this thing at the kickball fields!!

Chuck Thursday Ffifteen

Ran out of money!
Cow bank says check goes "bouncy"!
Best things in life FREE...

Yah. Yours truly has finally run out of cash thanks to 2010: The Year of Living Expensively. All the home repairs, car repairs, dog repairs, and -- ahem -- eating and drinking out have finally caught up with me. On a fluke, I phoned Drama Cow's bank to see if the check she gave me back in January (that I said I'd hold until she got back on her feet) was still valid and if there were any funds to support it. Not surprisingly, there weren't. I'm hoping I can parlay this financial karma into a winning lottery ticket.

If I ever remember to purchase a lottery ticket. :)

In the meantime, I've tried to get back out for my lunchtime run and while on one yesterday, I started looking around and itemizing all the wonderful things in my life that are FREE. Feel free (harrrr) to add to the list or just work on one in your own noggin. Chances are if you're feeling down or stressed or whathaveyou, you'll feel much better afterwards. Have a wonderful day, my friends! Sentiments of cheer are free, fyi. ;)

the sun
blue skies
puffy clouds
genuine friends
helping tourists by the Wisconsin (hey, I said I formed this on my run...)
good cheer
postive attitude
deep breaths

Shoot, I know there were more, but I've got to get going! Help me out here...

PS -- The Ffifteen in the title is a shout out to my softball friends and their banquet last week whose entertainment included yours truly and a band called Ffelt. :)

Chuck Thursday Fourteen

Kickball starts tonight!
Did it ever stop for us?
Belmont fail, AJ.

Today's Chucku is for those in the know, I suppose. Basically, some of my friends and I played in a summer kickball league, so while our traditional league is starting back up again tonight, some of us fools never stopped playing. And since kickball is a gateway drug to that dirty little secret, karaoke, and yours truly is mildly addicted, I lost a lot of work hours on Fridays this summer.

And now the bell tolls for me.

Looks like I'm working a full day tomorrow which means I'm skipping the big Bel tonight. Sniff... I will miss my frenzied friends and our wonderful waitstaff. sniff.

In other news...

"[Tupac Shakur] always wanted me to smoke weed with him, and I never did it. I wish I did. That's my biggest regret." — Mike Tyson (AP)

Uh...Mike? You bit a man's ear off and THIS is your biggest regret?

You MARRIED Robin Givens and THIS is your biggest regret?

You BEAT Robin Givens (OK, we may cut you a little slack on this one... No, no, it was wrong) and THIS is your biggest regret?

You have a tribal tattoo on your FACE and THIS is your biggest regret?

Man, Tupac must've had some amazing weed....

Chuck Thursday Eleven, Twelve, & Thirteen!

Uh, whoops. How's everyone been? Looks like I missed a few. Let's see if we can't review the last 3 weeks in Chucku form...


Getting back on stage
Seemed like good idea at time
Hope I don't crash, burn!


Stand up shows went great!
Have girlfriend, but still no date. :)
Hope this week's show kills!


There was death, all right...
But I'm still smiling like fool!
Thank God for Ash and day job. ;)

And since I've been thinking about this a lot lately, let's go ahead and review a checklist I made a few months ago... (What I Want)

What I Want

Someone who enjoys my company and wants to share activities, thoughts, dreams, etc. with me. CHECK!

Someone who is financially independent CHECK!

Someone who is productive, creative, and fun-loving CHECK!

Someone who seeks and finds balance in life and love CHECK!

Someone who does not take herself too seriously and looks for the humor in life CHECK!

Someone who appreciates me, my efforts, and my love CHECK!

Someone who is not selfish CHECK!

Someone who is her own person but who is open to being in my world and letting me in hers CHECK!

Someone who is faithful CHECK!

Someone who recognizes that new is always shiny and who likes, loves, and respects me enough to work on our relationship (Haven't tested this one yet; but I suspect I already know the answer.....check)

Someone who recognizes her own idiosyncrasies Ditto

Someone who is not a victim all the time OR EVER -- CHECK!

Someone who recognizes that we can and will both be at fault on occasion. Statistically, it can’t always be my fault. :)

Again, not tested; but I already know the answer... CHECK!

Thanks for falling out of the sky, Pea Pod!
