i thank my lucky stars

for the way you make me laugh so hard my side hurts, for how handsome you are, for your 'out of the blue' compliments, for the way you play with louey when I am fake sleeping, for thinking I'm funny, for making 99.5% of our dinners, for loving popcorn so much that you will succumb to 'chick flicks'(sometimes), for wearing a sweatshirt and two extra blankets to bed in the summer because I like to sleep in the cold,for letting me twist your nipples and scream 'tune in toyko!!' when no one is looking, for being so smart, for being the life of the party, for your perspective, for being my best friend, for loving me so much, just as much as I love you.
happy birthday hubs.

1st Last Place

Yesterday, I received this in the mail.

A note from my Grandpa Sal with a check for $11.25.

See, we are partners in my Uncle Bob's 'American Idol Pool' every year, and we have come in last place almost each year it's been running.

The best part is that we intentionally try and come in last place so we can win something, even if it's not the big money prize of first place.

The real beauty is my Grandpa not only picks the last place correct each year, he also pays for my entry fee.

So today, I am $11.25 richer for last place winner and 1st place winner in the 'how to choose a partner in Uncle Bob's American Idol Pool' .

Love you Gramps.

Yes, I am a loser

A. Because this was the highlight of my weekend.

B. Because I was the only person who seemed to be excited and have my picture taken under the sign.

C. Because I bought this t-shirt and wore it to bed last night.
(In case you're not up on your 80's trivia, Mystic Pizza is a classic 80's movie with Julia Roberts, that had her working in this very restaurant, hello!?)

And if there were any doubts, my lack of coolness was reconfirmed when I showed Dan my 'she's a maniac' dance today when the credits to 'Flashdance' were playing.
