If You Had To Pick....

Which would you rather be:

1. Alive and Depressed?


2. Alive with these side effects?:
  • fever, stiff muscles, confusion, sweating, fast or uneven heartbeats;
  • jerky muscle movements you cannot control;
  • sudden numbness or weakness, headache, confusion, or problems with vision, speech, or balance;
  • fever, chills, body aches, flu symptoms, sores in your mouth and throat;
  • increased thirst or urination, loss of appetite, fruity breath odor, drowsiness, dry skin, nausea, and vomiting;
  • seizure (convulsions);
  • thoughts of hurting yourself;
  • feeling like you might pass out;
  • jaundice (yellowing of your skin or eyes); or
  • urinating less than usual or not at all.
Less serious side effects of aripiprazole may include:
  • choking or trouble swallowing;
  • dizziness, drowsiness, or weakness;
  • constipation, mild stomach upset;
  • headache, anxiety;
  • sleep problems (insomnia); or
  • weight gain.
(The side effects sound like an unending panic attack mixed with a hangover.)


3. Dead?

 I'll take depressed.



Me v. ski

After my hiatus from posting the minutia of my life I am back and ready to numb your minds like old times!

So, my husband began trying to get me to ski about sixteen minutes into our first date.  And twelve years later I am here to tell you it never took.  Ski shares, private lessons, custom boot inserts.  Nothing ever persuaded me.  I still dread everything about it.  And while I've accepted that it will be an annual family event, I have ramped down my participation to where I just get everyone ready and drop them at the mountain.  The kids have ski school and he can ski with a buddy (there is always a buddy when you are a skier).  That's where we are now.

Well, we are leaving for our family ski trip on Sunday and found out that the buddy has just shattered his knee.  And I'm sure he was doing something dangerous and ski guyish so I'm just glad that he is alive but back to the issue:  what does that mean for me?  Do I have to nut up and be the buddy?  I wasn't even planning on packing my ski pants.  I'm already stress sweating.

Dear Salmonella, please stay away

Being that I'm not working at the moment, I've decided to become the house chef. (this could only last 24 hours)  Tonight, I'll be making Chicken Breasts with Green Beans and Sauteed Mushrooms.  I'm guessing the chicken SHOULD look like this:

This is how mine turned out:

It was actually pretty good!  I'm so shocked.

Daniel Boulud eat your heart out!

If everyone lives, there is a good chance I'll be doing this again.

If everyone lives.

These are not your Grandma's nails

After watching 007 Skyfall, I was completely in love with the lady's nails.

So, I made the leap to making mine long and strong:

I'm thinking of bedazzling my nails tomorrow for my manicure....what do you think?

 But with more of a gun metal/platinum color under the gems.

I'm kind of excited and kind of terrified. I may look like a Vietnamese hooker.


p.s. here is how it looks on my old lady hands:

Oh dear

PPV Movie Review Installment #3

Movie: Flight


*Denzel "I'm too sexy for my plane" Washington
*Don "I rock the casbah" Cheadle
*Bruce "I need to see way more of you" Greenwood

This film was an absolute delight.  Flight was hands down the best thing Denzel has done since Man on Fire.  His ability to consume copious amounts of alcohol and temper with it with just enough blow to function at a high level at work was inspiring.

The only reason I would take away a star from this film was because he let down alcoholics and addicts everywhere by telling the truth at the end.   (I encouraged someone to tell the truth once, and it bit me in the ass ... HARD. )  What a let down. 

He so needed to throw that lady under the bus and walk a we all know that is how the story would really end.

This is a "must see" people.  Worth far more than the $4.99 I paid for it.

Do it!
